BOD Daily Round-Up (4/10/13)

So after a hiatus, the Daily Round-Up is back.

First and foremost, thank you to those that have asked about the Daily Round-Up’s whereabouts. It’s mainly because of that that i’ve decided to restart this feature.

Secondly, as Scott mentioned on his ‘Facebook of Doom’ post, BOD now has a Facebook page, where you can still get your BOD updates when you’re on Facebook, which many of you probably check more regularly than the blog itself.

Scott and I have also discussed the idea of posting tidbits on the Facebook page which may not necessarily make it on to the blog (you have a lot more freedom on Facebook as far as images/tidbits go).

So, with that being said, I suggest giving the Facebook page a ‘Like’ and joining in the discussion, and accessing content that is EXCLUSIVE to users!!! (The Cole in my head is taking over..)

Comment of the Day 
Worst_in_the_World is a walking continent of common sense:

I wonder if Sunday was it for The Rock and WWE, at least for a loooong while. The crowd support for Rock hasn’t exactly been through the roof in his latest run, and on Sunday it was pretty non-existant. I mean, Rock had to notice getting pretty much no heat during his big main event—in the sense that as the questioner stated, all the heat was on Cena. Basically Rock was getting the exact reaction that anyone else on the roster would get standing across from Cena.
And it can’t be ignored that the whole “passing the torch” moment wipes away a huge amount of Rock’s cool factor with the fans. He came in as the bad-ass Cena destroyer, and ended up a member of the Cenation. That changes things for a lot of his fans, and there’s no doubt the crowd on Monday would have treated him WAY differently then he’s been treated since his return.
Therefore, I’m betting we don’t see Rock in the ring again. He got his return pops, made a shitload of money for himself and the company, and put over the guy he wanted to put over. Anything past this point is just a needless risk, in terms of major injuries AND having the fanbase publicly turn on him, both of which could affect his real career.
Lastly… I know their MAIN goal was to make a shitload of money on his return, and on the Mania buyrates they certainly did. But you have to assume that their second goal of the whole Rock-Cena feud was to get Cena over more, and, well, I can’t see how that was a success in any way. Giant Rock endorsement later and Cena is in the EXACT same position with the fanbase he was 2 years ago. Can’t imagine that was their hope.

On This Day…
Paul Bearer is born. Bearer would pass away only recently, and be remembered as the Undertaker’s long-time manager, as well as Mankind, and Kane. He would be remembered in the Undertaker/CM Punk angle leading up to this year’s Wrestlemania. Below is one of my favourite Bearer/Taker moments – his 2004 return as the Dead Man. (1954)
