Scott Hall is back to his old form.

I just heard Scott was released from TNA. I watched him a few times since he arrived there and physically, he barely looks sober.

I believe he's pushing 50. I hope he'll get to get rid of his demons. It was a shame to watch him deteriorate of the years. He was a great talent.

Say what you will about TNA, and most of it is true, but last night's bit with Jay Lethal and Ric Flair doing Ric Flair at each other was one of the funniest things I have seen in a long time. I laughed so hard I nearly threw up.

Unfortunately all that funny stuff led to a brutal booking of Lethal vs Flair.

Yeah, Flair should stick to the mic work at this point.

It's too bad about Jay Lethal doing this match.  He is really one of my favorites in TNA but always seems to get the worst booking and programs to work in.  He at least makes them tolerable most of the time.

The Flair/Lethal segment was hysterical.

Too bad beating Ric Flair hasn't meant anything in, oh, 10 years.  I have no doubt he'll put Lethal over, but it's the exact sort of thing bad bookers do because it doesn't accomplish anything but everything will think is pushing Lethal because he's going over 'a star.'

They had actual surprise results at Fatal 4 Way.

I hear Jericho/Bourne was the match of the night.

It was. Jericho and Bourne really worked well together. I couldn't quite place it while watching but as I've read elsewhere and agree, it was more of a Japanese style match and it worked great.

Lately, I love Jericho's work. When he puts someone over, it doesnt do anything to diminish him in anyway.

He's one of a few who doesnt need a belt to be "over".

I have said it before but I think Jericho is the best all-around person in the wrestling business right now.  He and Bourne pulled off another great one on RAW tonight.  I think I could watch those two go at it a lot.

Not sure what I think of tonight's Raw.

For a lot of it I was having flashes of watching TNA. As Jason mentioned, I thought Jericho and Bourne had another great match. So that was great.

I don't know what I feel about this NXT stuff. Beating down Vince was good but it seems like way too soon and something that could have been waited on. Vince sure will take a beating though. That clothesline from Skip Sheffield was like a Stan Hansen lariat from 25 years ago.

The new GM being a mystery and sending emails to communicate is stupid. I wouldn't be shocked if the WWE aren't even sure who they will eventually reveal the GM to be.

I like John Cena. He's not that great a wrestler but as a person I like him a lot. So I have tried to overlook how stale he is in the ring. I'm about at my breaking point though. He gets beat up by 7 guys and loses his title on Sunday. Monday night he's no worse for wear and has that big cheesy smile on his face like nothing happened. Super Cena makes me want to change the channel.

My biggest fear is one I know a lot of others have. HHH has to come back sometime and I can easily see him showing up one night and beating all 7 NXT guys by himself.
