My Thoughts: overall a great show. Dolph Ziggler plays the desperate egomaniac very well. Lesnar’s storyline is an interesting one.
To address a comment someone made last week, my nickname was questioned. The Real Deal was my next to last ring name I used. The reason I bring it back is that unlike a lot of these writers on the bigger sites, I’ve taken bumps, spent time in the business and given my health to it. The name is more than just a nickname or a character. I’m “The Real Deal” because I’ve done what the wrestlers have.
for Steve and the rest of the site, This is “The Real Deal” Billy Rouse. Good night folks!
