-Ross on Paul Heyman: "Speaking of Paul Heyman, Paul had a magnificent night on Raw delivering a home run on the Lesnar beating Taker promo. Heyman is the best talker in the business and continues to do amazing work and has to be considered as one of the greatest managers of all time on a short list that includes Bobby Heenan and Jim Cornette. Before all is said and done, Paul may be the best, pure manager to ever fulfill that role in the history of the business."
Powell's POV: There's nothing to add or to debate. Heyman was sensational and truly is the best talker in the business.
-Ross on Paige: "Paige has a significant upside and I can see her potentially having a Trish-Lita type rivalry with the talented AJ Lee who is still WWE's most consistent, in ring diva. Both ladies have marketable, bell to bell skills and both can be aggressive in the ring which translates well to all audiences."
Powell's POV: This is the feud that NXT fans have been waiting for. Here's hoping that this marks the beginning of a renewed emphasis on wrestling in the Divas division. They can still have Total Divas and some women who are better on a reality show than in a wrestling ring, but I don't see why they can't also spotlight the talented in-ring performers.
-Ross on The Shield: "The Shield declaring their true colors as the show went off the air was significant. This gives WWE creative plenty of options going forward and the chance for Reigns, Ambrose and Rollins to take another step vertically not to mention when one or more of them 'changes jerseys' how big a deal that will be. I'd hope that metamorphous is not any time soon as the hotter The Shield becomes as fan favorites the more impactful they will be as antagonists when the time is right."
Powell's POV: I may have been down on what their WrestleMania role turned out to be, but I am very happy that the trio is still together. And how can you not look forward to their six-man tag match with The Wyatt Family tonight on Main Event Live? I was at the first one in Minneapolis and it was an absolute blast to watch in person.
