• I have to admit that I was disappointed with the outcome of the ECW Homecoming battle royal on Tuesday night's episode. I really wanted to see CM Punk win it and get the title shot against ECW champion Christian at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view on Jan. 31, but it was Ezekiel Jackson who prevailed. I'm all for giving Big Zeke a push, but that was downright cruel of WWE to tease us with the possibility of a Punk-Christian match and then not give it to us.
• A few days ago I wrote that I saw elements of cult leaders Charles Manson and David Koresh in Punk's character. Not only is the scruffy Punk looking more and more like Manson by the week, but he used the phrase "cease to exist" in his promo on this show. That's the title of a song that was written and recorded by Manson.
• Gee, do you think there were enough shots of Rosa Mendes during the Zack Ryder-Hurricane match? Nah, me either. There's no such thing as too much Rosa. By the way, that was a heck of a slap that she delivered to Hurricane.
• The Trent Barreta-Goldust match was decent. Barreta gave a good accounting of himself, and Goldust's work was solid as usual.
