Okay, so I really think AJ Lee is the best wrestler in the Divas division and one of the best wrestlers/performers in the WWE period, but a big part of the reason the crowd cares about her over the other women wrestlers is that the crowd has been given reasons to care about her.

For something like two years AJ was allowed to be in storylines where she held her own alongside Dolph Ziggler, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, and John Cena. And many of these storylines were within the three most important storylines on the shows at their time. 

Meanwhile, Paige got maybe three minutes of mic time during her two and a half month title reign. Did Alicia Fox ever get mic time to explain why she was taking JBL’s hat and stealing soda? And Naomi seems like she’s a pretty good wrestler, but what is her character besides “cheerleader who is shitty at choosing her best friend”?

What I’m getting at is that AJ *is* awesome and is one of my Top Five Favorite Things on Raw, and while she is an amazing performer, part of that is that she’s been featured and given time so the crowd has had a chance to connect with and care about her and it sucks that we can’t find another even three minutes to let Paige or Naomi cut a real promo.

Hugh Jackman Fought to Show You His Naked Ass

I land back in 1973 - this is what the script says - I wake up next to a girl who I don’t remember, and I get out of bed wearing boxer shorts. I was like, ‘I don’t know about America, but in Australia if you’re next to a really good looking girl, you’re not getting out with boxer shorts on or briefs or anything.’ So yeah, I went commando. […]

They bought a bright green sock for me to wear and I was like, this is kinda drawing more attention than less. They said no, we need bright green, like a green screen, so if you bend over or turn around, and we need to erase anything, we can. I said that’s even weirder. They said please put it on, but the end of the first take I was like ‘Ermm, it’s gone, I don’t know where it is.’”

I just gonna leave this here

On the one hand, Jack Swagger is an amazing performer who has been under-appreciated for a long time. It’s awesome to see him get such a great reaction from the crowd!

On the other hand, he’s a white, blonde-hair, blue-eyed guy who’s been an evil Tea Party racist for the last year and a half who’s facing a Bulgarian guy that we are calling Russian who has beaten up exclusively black guys on the roster for the last few months.
