I don't understand why JR is talking the fall for this? Nobody has ever been able to control Flair. All of a sudden JR is just supposed to know how to do that? I don't know what Flair was saying that caused so much stir but wouldn't cutting the man off and asking him to leave have made a bigger scene then just letting him stay and rant about whatever he wanted? Surely, Vince can't be this stupid either, he had to know what he was getting into when he asked Flair to make a public appearance. Everyone knows Flair is never gonna quit his partying ways, so the odds of him showing up drunk or at the very least buzzed and saying whatever he wanted were pretty high to begin with.

I know Vince, Stephanie and HHH are very busy people but one of those three or someone else from upper management should've been there to oversee the whole thing in case it did get out of hand. When you give Ric Flair a live mic these days, the odds of that happening are pretty good. I see this more as Vince, Stephanie and HHH's fault then JR's.

From what I've heard Steph and Vince were the ones that made the call to have him fired. I guess before the press event was over Steph had already made the call to Vince for it.

JR deserves a send-off that rivals HBK or Flairs (though Flair didn't deserve his). In fact, he deserves a bigger send-off. He deserves a whole Raw dedicated to him with an hour of the program just for speeches and tributes. Instead that moron Vince, that stupid bimbo Steph and that goddamn lapdog Triple H once again shit on one of the most important figures in WWF/E history. In history. He's just as important as Hogan, Austin or Cena. He's the voice of the WWE. They probably just did this so unceremonious because they're still waiting for the Micheal Cole experiment to succeed. Why do they downplay how important JR was/is? (I still stand on my soapbox and say that one of the big things that made me stop watching WWE on a regular basis was Micheal Cole on Raw). Maybe I'm too old school, maybe I need to get with the times. I don't think JR needs to be doing Raw anymore but he deserves to go out in style. Not be sent packing by those fucking moron McMahons. Not this way.

I'm glad Bryan is champion but that match was shit. Maybe they intended to make Orton look like a bitch but Bryan won way too easily. His matches with individual members of the Shield were more intense.

The CM Punk match was cool. I'm stoked to see Ryback as a Heyman guy.

I'm glad they're doing something productive with Ryback. I can't remember a career getting so deflated so fast. And with Heyman as a mouthpiece all could be corrected and forgotten.

Yeah, and unlike Axel, Ryback has some personality and charisma. He is decent on the mic to. He's kind of like Lesnar when it comes to that. He can hold his own OK on the mic but Heyman can help by doing most of the talking. Maybe we will see Ryback go after Axel and take the IC title from him. Doing that and having Heyman by his side will do a lot to help start repairing the damage that has been done to him since his pointless heel turn.

Then, a year from now when they want to turn Ryback face again, Heyman is the perfect guy to do it against.

I think Heyman will help Ryback some but the damage has been done for him. He was really forgotten.

Heyman with Ryback won't elevate him (Ryback) to Brock Lesnars level, but it will elevate him passed Sin Caras level. They should have done this first then had him go after the title.
