At one point I remember they talked about a show about Big Show and his wife and what she feeds him, I thought I would be interested in that one

It'd be better if he checked his employment status by searching "who will win the sheep game" on the WWE site.

This show was so much better than I expected. I didn't really care about all the fake drama, but seeing Bryan acting like a normal human being and the small peek at what's going on backstage makes it worth sitting through one hour of this. The preview also looked juicy, even if 99% of it is fake and made for TV.

Thinks It's All Real

I can't believe that Natalya was that shocked that she wasn't going to be on the Wrestlemania card, especially when she has done absolutely nothing on TV in recent months. And even the Diva's champion Kaitlyn wasn't even on the card. I remember them showing Kaitlyn at Access doing a lame thing where she was posting hints to where she was on Twitter and people had to find her. That must have been very sad... I wonder how many people even bothered.

To be somewhat fair they had her saying his name out loud a few minutes earlier. Perhaps by the time they came to put his current footage into the edit compared to what they had just added from the Hart Foundation heyday they wanted to distance themselves from how far he had let himself go.

And oh god, I just watched it and it was indeed far more entertaining than it had any right to be. I don't watch ANY of the normal reality tv bollocks so this is all new ground to me, her asking Cena about marriage in front of the cameras was a godawful trap question but I'm presuming that's how this poo poo works.

"I look like Lion King" She had a point though, it did look bloody terrible. Should have taken a polaroid to show grumpy Jane.

Why is that insane? Cool-down matches between main events have been around forever.

I went against my better judgment and watched this show. Couldn't stand the stilted, wooden fake drama. Some of it was near Ryback-level of delivery.

Now I understand why the women's matches go between the two main events, because it's most likely to get cut.

No, as others have said it's to cool the crowd down between mains and let them "recharge", in theory at least.

Are ratings comparable between channels like that? Like, is a 1.1 on E the same as a 1.1 on Spike?

E! and Spike both reach about the same amount of households (IIRC, Spike has a little bit larger reach) so they're pretty comparable. It's not the same as, say, comparing the RoH TV show to Impact's because RoH reaches a much smaller total audience.

That's loving hilarious, I can only hope that the ratings will improve next week because:

it seems to have been very positvely recieved based on what I have read online, mostly "that was much better than I expected it to be"
next weeks episode is called "Tango with Fandango"

Vincent's acting is pretty bad though.

Eva Marie is 10 times better in this show than on TV. And hotter. Jojo is pretty nice too. Brie is a pretty cool person but she is with Bryan so that's expected.
