      I give him props for showing up on RAW tonight took a lot to do that.

      That’s terrible news.

      My thoughts are with Bryan and his family. He’s such a nice, hardworking guy. Proof of that on RAW.

      At least his father got to see him achieve his dream at Wrestlemania.

      i guess that’s why he’s not usual lively self during the 1st promo on RAW.
      the 1st promo sucked apparently, it’s so poorly executed that i almost go to sleep.
