    Alexa got the push because frankly Alexa needed it. With the 2 top female stars (Becky and Nikki) both being faces, you needed a credible heel for them to actually feud with. Smackdown got the somewhat sort end of the stick as far as female performers go, with 3 out of 4 of the Horsewomen going to RAW along with Nia Jax (the monster heel of the female division). So they needed to build stars.

    And I think it worked. It got her to the next level, without hurting Becky too much since all her loses were "protected." Becky was never legitimately pinned or submitted, so she's still looking strong despite coming up short.

    In a Jim Cornette shoot from a couple days ago , he brought up ROH : Final Battle 2012.


    - Cornette discusses that he always loved Jay Lethal . That Lethal has grew into the star he always imagined. That when he was in TNA he took a shine to Lethal and wanted to keep him on TV. So when Lethal came up in 2012 , he brought him into Ring of Honor. Cornette also put over Jay Briscoe who he liked as well in ROH.


    - Then the talk comes to El Genrico & Kevin Steen. Cornette pushed to have Lethal/Steen be at Final Battle but Steen over ruled him. Saying that he wanted his and El Generico's final battle to happen ..at Final Battle. Cornette claims he found it silly that they were gonna give time to a guy who wouldn't return the bookers calls (Delirious) and that Generico had said he wouldn't be returning to ROH after the match.

    That he'd rather give that time to a young star like Lethal who was signed long term instead of a short term guy. But Steen wanted to end him and Generico's program the right way since they are friends. This led to Cornette bringing up that Generico played a mute masked guy and it was a struggle to sell that to local TV and more.


    - The fans of ROH over-ruled him basically and wanted El Generico/Kevin Steen to get a finish and that he had to give in there.

    Wait....Cornette tried to kill the blow off to a year long angle that was a high point for ROH and considered one of the best storylines they ever did? Why is this man considered a wrestling genius?

    Some news:

    1. Looks like WWE may still bring some Indy promotions to the network. All UK of course. Interesting enough one survey asking which promotions fans liked(All uk) also included TNA, which leads into my next...

    2. Anthem will finally lay to rest the TNA letters, and just call the promotion IMPACT WRESTLING. Could this mean that WWE may be interested in the library now?

    3. Matt and Jeff will face the Young Bucks at SUPERCARD OF HONOR.

    4. Fantastic Mania starts tomorrow. Yay.

    I hope WWE gets the library. It would be cool seeing that on the Network and we'd get some pretty cool DVD's out of it I'm sure.

    They may work a deal allowing WWE to use the library as part of a deal for the WWE Network. Since they can have the library to use for a number of talents there now. Plus it gives the network more programming.

    Especially when the wrestler's actual nationality can be one thing and their in the ring nationality be something totally different, it all gets messy...or can...cute puppy...

    Personally I'd get more mileage out of Joe/Cesaro. Brock'd probably just smother any excitement out of the match just like he did with Dean's.

    Yeah Joe/Lesnar would pretty much suck since Joe would get suplexed a million times and we'd get a "OMFG ....HOW BAD ASS IS BROCK NOW !"
