On The Rhodes Family Angle: Loved the Rhodes Family in ring interaction Monday night and am amazed at how it is to still easy to create a meaningful, personal issue if it is largely based on logical and common sense. This vehicle will hopefully elevate Cody Rhodes to the next level when all is said and done and I expect Sunday's tag bout vs. The Shield to be really good. If it isn't, then all involved have missed a great opportunity. The table is set.
On Daniel Bryan Winning at Battleground: I saw an online poll where 70+% of those voting hope that Daniel Bryan wins the WWE Title Sunday. I'd agree. The underdog can only remain an unsuccessful underdog for so long until the fan base begins to slowly migrate away and to someone who they feel can achieve the success the fans crave. No one in the biz is better at this time, bell to bell, than Daniel Bryan plus his promo work has greatly improved over his tenure in WWE. Bryan's time is now, to steal a phrase from John Cena.
On The Ultimate Fighter: It's interesting watch UFC's TUF18 on Fox Sports 1 w/o commentary on the fights. It actually is enjoyable and certainly allows one to not be preconditioned and to form one's own opinions on the action. With no soundtrack there is one message to process and enjoy. I enjoy the behind the scenes content from TUF and will continue to do so until I sense that it's overly staged. Same goes for any reality show.
On UFC's Johny Hendricks: Getting excited about fellow Oklahoman Johnny Hendricks shot at superstar Georges St. Pierre coming up in a few weeks on PPV. I'm a lean for the native Okie but how can one not respect GSP? Even with all the great, UFC main events left on this year's calendar, this fight might be the best of the litter. Anxious to see the pace that the ring savvy, GSP dictates. How much sizzle can UFC add to this matchup? More on that soon.
