i stopped watching all the time around the time of the first Hardy Boys/Edge & Christian ladder match. that shit is annoying. it takes away from the mic work of almost anyone who has to encounter that.
Punk will go into whatever role he feels works at the moment, just like he did all through his indie career. Thankfully, he actually gives a damn about what the fans think so if it's clear people aren't digging his current bit, he'll switch out of it. So I didn't watch RAW (Devils/Rangers game took priority), but I take it that it's not really worth downloading?
Btw, great interview with Eddie Kingston on this week's Breakfast With Chikara.
