I haven't been watching much lately, but last night seemed way worse than usual. There was Lilian's botch when Beth Phoenix came out, Regal's massive botch when annoucing the elimination chamber, the sound seemed to cut out randomly, there was the armdrag from Cody Rhodes onto Carlito, am I forgetting anything?

They also seem to be framing the show specifcally for HD without thinking about how it will look in SD.  There was at least one point where a promo graphic was shown (maybe a PPV sponsor CD?) and half of the first and last words on the screen were cut off.

Yes, lots of botches.  Like everytime Jericho threw a "punch"

It's as if they're breaking their backs to cater to HD. How many people are actually watching in HD?

I think they're still working out the bugs of switching over to HD.

Still, It looks awesome.  Or not so awesome......if Snitsky or Big Daddy V is on.

Biggest botch was Regal's hair. The 60's are over.

Leave Regal alone, at least he's off the crack, y'know?

Thought of another one: the "new" guy describing the main event as "sure to be epic." Jeez.

Yeah, Adamle is already a mistake.  It's clear the guy has no clue.

Hmm and here I thought it was a good show overall with more in-ring action than usual. Didn't mind the slight botches one little bit..wrestling always had some of those.

Ehhhh...I like Adamle so far.  They should have given him a little more time to get to know the product.

Adamle = Mike Adamle of American Gladiators and NFL announcing fame?

Even though he flubbed his lines, his acknowledgement of it just showed what a true pro Regal is and why he's always gold on the mic.
