Last weekend was a whirlwind of activity for this G guy. With the Royal Rumble being the highlight, or so I thought, to cap off a content filled Saturday and Sunday, expectations were high. Did the Rumble deliver? Hrmmm… not so much, but I’ll get to that this week with the BWF Radio Crew on Sunday. Until then, let’s see how the outcome of the PPV affected Smackdown this week, shall we?
I’ll even throw in the Power Poll just for fun. If anyone reading this wants to participate and write for the BWF and/or WPO, this democratic multi-site ranking position is currently available. Toss a message in the comments if you are interested.
And even though it was kind of a depressing Rumble, we did get this.
We had some movement amongst the regular top dogs this week, and some drop out… as per usual. Unlike most weeks, TNA gets a little love from the smarks involved in this IWC project. Let’s get to it, shall we? (more…)
Note: I decided to take the night off and allow one of our twitter followers the opportunity to write our RAW review. Yours truly will be here Friday night to cover SmackDown this week, so for now, here’s this week’s RAW review by @nascardiva9!

It’s the last stop before the Elimination Chamber – what’s to become of John Morrison’s spot if he’s unable to compete? That’s all I got. I’m still half asleep. Anyways, it’s Friday (for another 10 minutes as of the time I’m typing this very sentence), and I’ve got SmackDown fired up and ready to go!
