Title: Random WWE Discussion thread
Post by: RyPrax on 31 May 2009, 02:50:08 PM
Well I thought we had something like this before, I guess not. This is a place to discuss random WWE news that you want to share your opinion on but don't think it deserves its own thread. We have more specific threads for stuff like this but this is a general thread where you can just discuss anything random concerning the WWE. If something becomes popular, we can always make it its own thread.

If this idea becomes popular, we can always make it for other sections, like the other WWE sections as well as TNA, Other wrestling, etc.

For example, here's something that's not overly important:

Quote
The following is an excerpt from an article in the New York Daily News:

Former five-time WCW tag champ Buff Bagwell visited my aunts' holiday "Burger and Bean Blast" and chatted with King Gremlin.

He commented on the rampant rumors about him coming to TNA. "I don't know who started them, but (the rumors) are totally false. I have not been contacted by TNA. If they did call, I'd answer (even if it was collect) and listen."

Bagwell was last on the big stage in 2001 in the WCW. Since then he's done some independent circuit work but admits he wants to get back on the big stage.

When asked if not TNA what about the WWE, his face lit up. "I'd love to join them so much I'd work for free!"


:giggle

I love how they forgot the 2 weeks he was in WWE and literally got kicked out of the building, lmao.

-- Here are the quarter hour numbers for this past Monday's episode of Monday Night Raw. It's interesting to note that Raw lost 0.13 ratings points by the time Vince McMahon was through mocking Denver Nuggets owner E. Stan Kroenke. The rating would continue to free fall through the first hour, although viewership spiked come hour two.

* 9:00: 3.28 - Vince McMahon mocks Stan Kroenke, The Miz appears
* 9:15: 3.15 - Miz and John Cena, Maryse vs. Kelly Kelly
* 9:30: 2.99 - Backstage with "Jack Nicholson," star of United States Championship Shot Triple Threat
* 9:45: 2.90 - conclusion of United States shampionship shot, Ric Flair walks backstage
* 10:00: 3.26 - Flair vs. Randy Orton confrontation, Santino's ring entrance
* 10:15: 3.42 - Santino and Mickie James vs. Chavo Guerrero and Beth, start of Kendrick and Festus vs. Goldust and Hornswoggle
* 10:30: 3.29 - conclusion Kendrick and Festus vs. Goldust and Hornswoggle, ring announcement of "players" for main event
* 10:45: 3.31 - 5-on-5 main event
* Overrun: 3.81 - conclusion of 5-on-5 main event and aftermath

Divas > Vince. No wonder he's pissed off with the division :giggle

Honestly, I don't really care that they've always been in the main event. It's a 5 year period and they're taking 4 superstars, one of whom had a near 2 year reign, another combined almost a year, Triple H at least 2 of those years on and off, and Batista a fair bit of time on and off as well. So ya they're going to be in the main event most of the time, but it's not like it's one guy, it's three or four guys who are the biggest draws.
 
It would be nice to see something fresh though, it's about that time they changed things up... It would be so much better if they just switched the entire RAW and SD rosters, including the writers :P

PROWRESTLING.NET | The Marine 2 trailer, WWE ejects a fan for throwing John Cena's hat, TNA taping Impact in Orlando tonight, Tracy Smothers vs. a member of the band GWAR with a bizarre stipulation, former WWE star on American Gladiators (http://www.prowrestling.net/artman/publish/DotNetDaily/article1006554.shtml) - WWE ejected a fan from Monday's WWE Raw taping in Green Bay, Wisc. after he threw John Cena's hat. Cena threw the hat into the crowd, and the fan who caught it threw it back toward Cena. Weak move by security. I know the fans are instructed not to throw anything at the ring, but this is really pushing it. After all, Cena had fun with the ECW fans at the original One Night Stand pay-per-view by repeatedly throwing it into the crowd only to have it thrown back at him. Are hometown fans ejected when they throw baseballs hit for home runs by the visiting team back onto the field?


I'm totally in agreement, that is a weak reason to throw a fan out, in fact it's something that I've been hoping other fans would start doing for quite a while since it was fun watching that happen at One Night Stand.

Thats lame... There was a guy front row facing toward the camera on Monday who kept flipping off the camera... He was never kicked out but they guy tossing the hat is? Thats bullshit.

I thought there were rules at arenas where you would be ejected for throwing things over the barriers / into the ring? I don't agree with him being thrown out, but the guy is clearly a douche. I'm sure there would have been plenty of kids next to him who would have loved to have had the shirt and actually appreciated it.

Also before anyone brings up the whole throwing the shirt back at ONS, look at the two situations. If they would have attempted to throw the dude(s) out at ONS there would have been a fucking riot.

Good point, but I still would like to see his stuff get thrown back more often though ;)

I was going to make a Big Show thread but here is a better place to do this.

i just don't get what they are doing with him, they seemed to be giving him a huge push, he went over Taker and loads of other big wrestlers. It almost looked like he was going to win the belt at one point, then he had his feud with Cena. Cena won this but Big Show still came across as a strong competitor. Now he is fighting Kofi and Evan, not only is that a big downgrade but it ruins what could be some great matches between Kofi and Evan. Kofi holding the US belt is a neat move and we could be getting some great US matches but Big Show is fighting them for seemingly no reason. It just seems like he is there to hinder some good matches and has just been put in place because there is nothing else to do with him. Now Raw has Henry he is clearly the big guy being pushed (which I prefer) but it seems like they should either keep Big Show as a strong competitor or get rid of him completely rather than have him damaging what could be some interesting midcard matches on Raw.
Hell make him Jericho's partner if it means getting rid of these stupid matches or just make Big Show a wrester exclusive to Superstars so I never have to watch him but he still has his moments for people who do like him.

Big Show is exactly what he needs to be, a strong mid carder that can at any time be a believable main event competitor if WWE needs to interject him into a couple of title matches now and again. I personally feel that Big Show is good at what he does, but it annoys me that WWE seems to be obsessed with smaller guys taking on giants - If Big Show wins the US Championship, I wouldn't mind at all. - Especially if it means they give him a run like his 2006 ECW Championship run, have him dominate and destroy until a mid card guy has been built up enough to get the expected rub from beating him.

Post by: RyPrax on 22 July 2009, 05:30:24 PM
We talked about this on the radio last night lol... Big Show is exactly what Mark Henry was 5 years ago until recently... a big guy who fills a role in WWE who's lost his edge. Slowed down as a wrestling and has really become uninteresting.
 
I'm not going to lie, I used to love the big show, but now he's just slow and boring.

And the reason he's most comparable to mark Henry is because he signed a big contract and WWE has to respect it... Otherwise they lose a lot of money releasing him as he probably has a big downside guarantee and a long term contract, and if you're going to keep him, might as well put him in storylines and matches. It's more like they're stuck with him, or at least they respect him for giving so many years and so much to the business that they kind of have to keep him around.

One thing that pissed me off in WWE not too long ago, and I feel now this is the exact place to discuss this, was the whole Cena/Miz angle. This was pretty much the same as the Chris Jericho/Goldberg angle from WCW, only difference being WCW fucked up and dropped the angle before there was a blow-off match, and Miz got thrown into a match with Jerry Lawler before Cena just squashed him on PPV.

While I'm at it, might as well add a few more comments, save double posting.

I've already made my feelings on the DX beating Legacy argument. Say what you will about them "getting experience working with top names", thats a pile of shit, how does winning elevate Shawn Michaels (3 time WWF champion, 1 time world champion, 4 time tag team champion, 3 time Intercontinental champion and 1 time European champion) or Triple H (5 time World champion, 8 time WWE champion, 2 time European champion, 5 time Intercontinental champion, 1 time tag team champion). What harm to their careers would a loss to a young, up and coming heel team? For fuck sake, have them cheat and get the win like heels should, it wont hurt Triple H or HBK's credibility in any way.

MVP and Swagger were in the middle of a feud, so why all of a sudden is MVP teaming with Mark Henry and going after the tag titles? Where are all the real tag teams? Oh, thats right, the only LEGITIMATE tag team on RAW now (since for some unknown reason the Colons split) are being beaten by DX. What now for Swagger? After watching Summerslam and seeing them not getting much of a reaction, it makes me wonder if WWE pulled the plug thinking they weren't over enough? How about promoting the fucking match instead of retarded Chavo vs midget matches (R.I.P Chavo, Pepe and Jos

This.

Chavo has been in the business for long damn time now. He's never gotten in trouble at all, he's never violated the wellness policy to my knowledge, he's been nothing but humble. It pisses me off when they use him like a clown for Hornswoggle when the man should be feuding for US title. He should be man to carry the Guerrero because we all know Eddie would have loved to see it but WWE continues to disrespect him.

It's disgusting.



Actually, Chavo was suspended in 2007. Possibly a second time but I'm not sure.

And if you look at his career, he's always been the butt of many jokes in the industry, all the way back to WCW. Lt. Loco? Losing the cruiserweight title to Jacqueline?

I actually kind of agree with you though, kind of a shame to see a veteran of so many years who's always taken everything that he's been handed and never seemingly complained. I would imagine they don't owe him anything anymore since it's been a while since Eddie passed and Vickie's gone too, if they're not going to use him in a role that doesn't mock him, just release him.

But I don't know, maybe he likes all these retarded angles.

Well to be quite honest, If I was a wrestler I would want to be treated better but if your making a big paycheck and supporting your family, I guess you wouldn't care.  But I find it stupid to have him get a decent spot in WWE as ECW Champ and then become a joke 2 years later.

Chavo's run as ECW champion will be remembered for one thing. Him dropping the title in 8 seconds at Wrestlemania.

I actually feel sorry for Chavo, the guy can wrestle, but every company has made him a walking punchline. In WCW he had Pepe and Jos

And what's the problem with that?

The man deserves some creditable title reigns. It would make sense to sign him and bring him in World Elite as a Mexican wrestler who hates America cause of how he was treated in WWE and in his personal life. Make him a X-Division Champion, It would totally work.

It was more the matter of TNA signing ex-WWE stars and making them champions. And come on about Chavo guys! Sure the guy can wrestle and stuff but he is  never going to be the main eventer. Just because he is from a legendary family doesn't mean he should be given everything. There are much better guys. I do agree he shouldn't be buried though, the guy is midcard but TNA signing him and making him champion would be an absolute joke and what's even funnier is that they would clearly do that.

When Eddie died they shouldn't have given anyone a push just for his death, not Rey Mysterio not Chavo. For me Chavo is somebody who should be treated like Finlay. A veteran who gets the occasional decent win but mainly puts the young guys over.
Hornswoggle and Chavo does irritate me though, nobody cares. Hornswoggle shouldn't fight he should just be someone used as a duo with somebody who does fight, like an apprentice to someone who comes to ringside but doesn't get involved in the match. It irritates me when Hornswoggle comes in the ring and starts doing stuff.

Am I the only one getting sick of the whole "Guest Host" thing. Not just that, but GM's and on-screen authority figures in general in wrestling. Remember back in the Attitude Era when Shawn Michaels was the commisioner? He wasn't on TV every week, and because of that when he did make an appearance and make a decision it was a special occasion.

Whatever happened to matches are made by someone backstage and they happen, or incidents occur which lead to a match, simple booking and less time spent on stupid segments like Shaq and Santino playing Scrabble or Jeremey Piven and Dr Ken cutting a 20 minute promo hyping themselves and then fucking up completely and calling the 2nd biggest PPV on WWE's calender "the SummerFest".

To an extent yes, but it all depends on who they actually make as the guest host. For me personally all of the hosts have been been either great (Shaq & Mayweather) or tolerable (Seth Green & Piven) and the only real dud has been ZZ Top. Despite the annoying asian guy, Piven I thought wasn't that bad and had that added swerve at the end by turning on Cena. You then move onto the wrestling related personalities and they too can throw out some interesting twists. Slaughter in Canada was genious, Ted DiBiase giving his son a title shot was also good because that wouldn't make any sense whatsoever if a normal GM was in charge.

Quote from: Axel;33803
"Guest Host" is an epic fail. It's not doing anything for the product whatsoever and god knows they picked the wrong people to host RAW.

Well the boost in ratings it's been generating is hardly an epic fail is it? It may not be doing anything to the actual wrestling product, but it's hardly harming it in all fairness and I find it generally makes it more interesting. If they are picking the wrong people to host the show, who should they be choosing?

No it isn't, you're wrong.
 
Since the guest host thing started, they haven't dropped below a 3.5 in the ratings. They've come close to hitting 4 several times. And throughout the whole thing, they've made a lot of ins in the entertainment industry, and I'm sure they've created some new fans.
 
Not to mention that Dusty helped put over Cody, and Ted Sr. his son too. Mayweather helped put over MVP and Henry, Shaq got some big media hits for him and Big Show on his edition of RAW, and that kind of stuff should continue to benefit the WWE.

I can say that some hosts haven't been successes, but you can't expect them to get the right guy every time.
 
In fact, out of all the hosts, the only fails were Piven and ZZ Top.

Have you been keep track lately? The last time RAW had a boost in ratings was when Shaq took over. This past monday's episode of RAW got a 3.6. That's not a boost to me.

Since the guest host thing started, RAW hasn't posted under a 3.5, and while the one number over 4 was due to trump, they came really close 3 times thereafter, and have averaged .4 better in the ratings since the period beginning in may. If you want a longer scale, it's still about .3 better than the shows after wrestlemania, and better than the rest of the year before that overall.

Wow what a big difference. 8-)

I find it funny since back in May, RAW was still horse shit. The whole Guest Host concept is to cover it up and bring in ratings by throwing in random celebs to help their problems.

Seriously your personal insults are tiring and lame. Just cut it out. If I'm not insulting you then don't insult me.

You're a moron (Y)

And you're changing the subject. You said the WWE hadn't received a boost in ratings, whereas they've received a big boost in ratings since the whole thing started. .4 is pretty big, almost half a nielsen point. I bet you didn't know that that's almost 500,000 extra viewers, on average, that have been tuning into raw since the guest host thing started. That IS a big difference, so don't try to shrug it off.

Specifically, you said that they hadn't received a boost since Shaq, regardless of the fact that Mayweather (who's involvement was pretty damn good vs. the wrestling content on the show) drew a similar rating. And regardless of the fact that Trump, who was essentially a guest host, and Batista, also drew big ratings (vs. the rest, which weren't even bad).

And the product is shit, in your opinion. Personally, I've enjoyed most of the raws since the guest host thing started, because I don't tune in just to pick everything apart.

Guest Host was to bring extra ratings, guess what?...It's bullshit. If you want to bring in extra ratings, put on newer storylines that aren't shit. How about pushing a newer heel that isn't Randy Orton?

It may look all good on TV but every week, It's also a report talking about how the Guest Host situation causes backstage confusion because Vince and company aren't there when needed.

It's just a lame excuse not to better the product and make the right choices. Right now, they should have explored more on the McMahon/Orton feud that took place but instead this Guest Host shit has ruined any sort of continuity or entertaining storylines they put out.

Fact is RAW had the highest ratings possible during the McMahon/Orton feud but ever since it dropped to 3.4's and instead of putting your writers to work on something to bring the viewers in they come up with a cop out with the whole Guest Host thing. This is called LOGIC.

But It's all in my opinion. Like it or not.

Well that's rather contradictory right there. First you say to push a new heel / put on a new storyline, yet you then say they should carried on more with the McMahon / Orton feud which fortunately they didn't do because it was done to death and i'm almost positive that if I trawled back through old threads you would have been saying the same thing.

The simple fact is whether you like it or not, the whole Guest Host deal has actually made Raw a hell of a lot more enjoyable than it used to be for alot of people. Different hosts with varying characters putting a different spin on the show.

If you seriously don't see the problems and inconsistecies in your posts then you seriously have a problem... you claim something is a fact and logic (nevermind that the actual FACTS, which were posted in this very thread and you chose to shrug off and ignore claim otherwise), and finish off oyur post by saying it's your opinion.

WWE is entertainment. They run product in order to get ratings, in order to make money. RIght now, the best way to do that is with guest hosts, because they tried that, and it worked.

Axel they aren't going to be doing the Guest host thing forever so enjoy it while you can. I think it makes a refreshing change and was a good idea. It's never been done before and for now it's fun (it will get stale eventually but it isn't yet.)
Those ratings show it is good for business and I actually enjoy seeing guest hosts. In fact I'm surprised you don't like the guest hosts as I'm sure that is one thing you haven't complained about before.

Everyone on here enjoys WWE because we watch it. Doesn't that make it a little bit obvious that we will probably enjoy a lot of the things they do. I swear in some other topic you claimed that you liked it, yet I don't thnk I've seen you say one good thing about it.

You have talked about wanting fresh new ideas thrown into the business, isn't that what the guest hosts offer? It has improved viewings, Prax proved that point.

I actually want to go in a topic without you whining in the WWE area, i'm getting sick of your Bart Simpson like attitude, your not down with the kids, you're just a faggot.

So you're comparing and getting an average for the shows, yet you compare 7 weeks pre-Trump to 11 weeks post-"guest host phase".

I've just fixed it, which includes the previous 4 weeks, while the average is still lower than the "guest host phase", but its not as bad as a 3.4, you also need to take into account that one of the RAW's (Trumps first episode that scored a 4.5) was a commercial free episode which likely got a higher rating because people were more interested in that gimmick.

Just because the ratings are higher doesn't mean the shows are better for it. The best rated episodes of iMPACT in recent months are the worst episodes, same goes for SmackDown!, the better shows are getting lower numbers.

Adding the 3 previous weeks is a little misleading because the first week is the high of the night after Wrestlemania which is always one of the highest numbers of the year no matter if the show sucked the night before or not and the two weeks after that carry a residual hangover that lingers until Backlash.

I'm the first to say that I don't like this guest host concept either, but by adding this the WWE has been able to maintain a higher than normal rating for the summer months when people are less likely to stay home and watch tv.  I think the one thing missing in this whole thing is how much is the WWE paying for these guest hosts to appear?  If its a normal appearance fee that doesn't outweigh the benefits of these higher ratings, then I don't see this stopping anytime soon.  However, if Vince is making his wallet wide open just to get a mainstream celebrity like Shaq or Jeremy Piven then this won't make much sense.

I think Bob Barker will go a long way to telling what impact the guest host has on the show company-wise.  He's a guy thats been out of the spotlight in America for a few years now, but pretty much everyone knows who he is.  I don't think the casual fan will go out of their way just to watch Raw this week to see Bob Barker, but I bet a few will stick around if they flip to USA Network and see him hosting just like he did with his game show for 35 years.

If Vince is able to find one host a month that can get him a 3.9-4.0 or above rating I bet he will be thrilled to take it as the mainstream enthusiasm for wrestling just isn't what it was 10 years ago.

Not really, they could have easily turned it into a McMahon/Orton alliance. They could have also pushed a new heel at the sametime, It's not that hard to do both.

Anyways, you like it. I don't. We all have different opinions, doesn't really change that we both enjoy WWE.

You all may not think I do enjoy it but I do. I would just like it if they made the smart moves and put a more excited and unpredictable product.

Other than that, I do enjoy WWE. So, let's just put an end to this back and fourth arguing.

I don't see why comparing it to the exact same scale of weeks makes a difference, it's just as arbitrary as much scale, which was basically the "summer" season where people start getting off school and stuff, and after the wrestlemania buzz dies off with Backlash. Either way, it's still a considerable difference and over 300 thousand extra viewers.

I included trump, albeit with an asterisk, because he too, was technically a guest host.

Like I said, it's arbitrary, but it's still an increase in ratings, and it had nothing to do with quality but Axel's statement that it hadn't given them a ratings boost outside of Shaq, even though it's given them a significant  and consistent ratings boost.

And finally, your last paragraph is a matter of opinion. Your least favorite episode of RAW could be someone else's favorite.

I posted a story on the main site a while ago (too lazy to look but it's there if it isn't posted on the forums).

Basically, according to the IWC's sources, most guest hosts do the show for free or for a nominal fee in exchange for promoting whatever events they have coming up. Like Piven did it in exchange of all the shilling they did for the Goods. And considering it's all in-show, it doesn't take away from any of their advertising space. I'd imagine it's possible that a few of the celeb hosts made some more money, but I doubt any of them broke the bank. If Vince was opening his wallet up he'd get A-listers not B and C listers.

As for the wrestlers, they basically get a day's worth of salary. So the salary aspect is negligeable.

And thanks for posting basically what I just said lol.

A few friends at the New York Jets game called me to tell me that Jeremy Piven, who hosted Raw a few weeks back was there with Kelly Kelly. Jim Ross wrote at the time that Piven had tried to get several WWE Divas' contact information when he hosted and succeeded at getting Kelly's.

Normally, I wouldn't even bother mentioning this, but the pair were just shown on the big screen of Giants Stadium, so it's fair game.

I guess it pays to host Raw!

The talk of last night's Raw taping was a backstage fight between The Big Show and The Great Khali that took place on Saturday at the Smackdown house show at the Manuel Iguina Coliseum in Arecibo, Puerto Rico.
According to several I've spoken to, there has been some underlying heat between the two for some time, including Show being upset about Khali using moves that he feels should be exclusive to him "as a giant."  The two got into an argument after their six man tag bout that night.
As it was described to me, they were arguing for several minutes when Show threw the first punch. Khali blocked it "exactly like he does in the ring" and they began fighting.  Show slipped on something and went down.  Khali was on top of him but several of the wrestlers broke it up and the crew were ordered to keep them apart for the remainder of the tour.
Show was seen at fault among the wrestlers I spoke to last night.
Probably not that newsworthy, but am I the only one who actually would want to see a tape of this? I can certainly picture Khali acting exactly like he does in the ring in a real fight :lol

For once I agree with you, I said to my friend on the phone when I first read that about how I hoped there was video in the news report. I just find it funny that both are the same size (well, there is about 2 inches in it) and the whole Show being upset about Khali using moves that he feels should be exclusive to him "as a giant." is funny since he's not the only giant around, and its not like he uses the whole "giant" thing as a gimmick

The talk of last night's Raw taping was a backstage fight between The Big Show and The Great Khali that took place on Saturday at the Smackdown house show at the Manuel Iguina Coliseum in Arecibo, Puerto Rico.
According to several I've spoken to, there has been some underlying heat between the two for some time, including Show being upset about Khali using moves that he feels should be exclusive to him "as a giant."  The two got into an argument after their six man tag bout that night.
As it was described to me, they were arguing for several minutes when Show threw the first punch. Khali blocked it "exactly like he does in the ring" and they began fighting.  Show slipped on something and went down.  Khali was on top of him but several of the wrestlers broke it up and the crew were ordered to keep them apart for the remainder of the tour.
Show was seen at fault among the wrestlers I spoke to last night.
Probably not that newsworthy, but am I the only one who actually would want to see a tape of this? I can certainly picture Khali acting exactly like he does in the ring in a real fight :lol
That is the most pathetic shit I've ever heard. They really have a reason to fight of petty shit like that?

Both need to have "Giant" Sex and get it over with.

Sounds like Khali got the better of him. I can imagine Big Show being a bit of a prick in real life to be fair.
That reminded me of Joey Styles getting the better of JBL.

That's painful, when you make a joke like that I feel like God has slapped me across the face.

Do you know what bothers me? Evan Bourne recently beat Chris Masters on Superstars yet they seem to be trying to give Masters a push yet Bourne couldn't get a clean win over Chavo who has been heavily buried for the past few months.

Involves something that takes place on this friday's episode of Smackdown

Quote from: wrestlingnewsworld.com
The reason for The Great Khali injury angle at last night's SmackDown taping in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada is because he will be taking time off to undergo knee surgery. No further details are available at this time but Khali has been working with knee problems for the past several months.

Anyway, Triple H to walk with Mayweather to the ring. Good publicity for the WWE, who continue a lucrative relationship with Mayweather:


Quote
WWE Superstar and one-half of D-Generation X, Triple H, will be accompanying a familiar face to WWE fans to a huge PPV main event this Saturday night.

"The Game" is apparently going to be walking to the ring with Floyd Mayweather Jr. for his fight with Juan Manual Marquez during the main event of Saturday night's HBO boxing PPV, which also features fights from top stars such as Zab Judah and Rocky Juarez.

Mayweather stated, "[Triple H] is one of the greatest guys in the world." The praise continued with, "it'd be an honor to have him by my side."

HHH responded with, "It is an honor to walk the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world back into the ring. Floyd 'Money' Mayweather has shown WWE tremendous support and it is my pleasure to return the favor this Saturday by standing at his side as he defeats Marquez in what I am sure will be boxing's fight of the year."

This isn't the first time this has happened recently, as "The Animal" Batista walked to the ring with Manny Pacquaio for his impressive one-round knockout of Ricky "Hitman" Hatton back in May.

Boxing Fanhouse has posted an interview with Floyd Mayweather, Jr. On the possibility of Mayweather working for WWE full-time, he said the following: "Right now, I'm looking at the WWE. I talked with the McMahon family and they're happy with the idea. So I may move there full-time. I don't know."

This makes no sense. Mayweather is in the business of SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT. Last I checked, Mayweather has enough business being in both. He's a proven draw, hence his nickname ''Money''. Not only would he make MONEY, but he would make WWE MONEY.
 
There is no justification to not wanting him in the business, and if you think there is, then you're nothing but a wannabe smark who has no understand of how the world works.

But ya, I agree, I don't understand why people can't try other things. Football players go into wrestling and fighting all the time... Brock made the jump in the other direction... what's the reason Mayweather can't try it if he's willing to work and actually wrestle and not do just gimmick matches like he did at Wresltemania?

As I mentioned last week in the PWInsider.com Elite section, WWE is looking into doing a documentary about the weeks leading into Wrestlemania 26, titled "The Road to Wrestlemania" but they are very early into discussing the project.  There's been no movement of late on the discussed Undertaker origin Western or the planned WWE Studios re-launch of the old Chuck Norris "Missing in Action" series

Was going to post this in the DVD thread but meh, no mention of these products being straight to DVD.

The Road to Wrestlemania documentary sounds kickass. With WWE production values it should be pretty good, even if it's kayfabe.

I'd definitely see an Undertaker western. As for the Mission in Action remakes, depends on who's in it, as it's obviously hard to replace the greatest being that ever existed, Chuck Norris.

They did something like that Road to Wrestlemania years ago, it was included on the Wrestlemania XX DVD and it was entitled "The Mania of Wrestlemania" and basically followed Rock and Austin backstage before the match. It was a good documentary, but if WWE tried to do a kayfabed one, I just think it would fall on its ass.

Yeah, that was part of the "Mania of Wrestlemania" feature.

I think the other two were Angle/Lesnar & Hogan/McMahon.

In another note. I find it hilarious that white jokes are made about Sheamus on a weekly basis, but if someone was to throw out a black joke; shit would hit the proverbial fan.

Sure, it isn't the same thing. But racism against caucasians is more prominent than a lot of media outlets ever let on. Just a random observation is all.

I was thinking of this idea. Have CM Punk and gallows come out and do their regular saving someone from the audience and up comes Bryan Danielson. Just as they are converting him Danielson could throw some alcohol or pills at Punk and knock him and gallows down before leaving the ring starting a feud. This would give Danielson a great debut but also kick off a really good feud between the two guys. Anyone else like this idea?

I honestly doubt they would do something like throw pills or alcohol in WWE these days. though it would be a nice way to debut him but i do think there are better ways than that.

On another interesting to some note i went to a house show this passed weekend and Paul Burchill was playing the role of a face.

Also cena wasn't at the house show.which striked me as weird because thats who everyone wants to go see.

Evan Bourne is more over than i thought he was he got his name chanted like 4 or 5 times in the match with him and Henry vs legacy.

the main event was Triple h vs Sheamus which wasn't really that good but could mean they will have a program together shortly

Randy Orton has the most boring entrance in the world in person.
Big Show is very boring in person as well or at least on this night.

and since i see others on websites do this.

biggest pops.

Triple H
Kofi Kingston

Hornswoggle

Cryme Time's Shad Gaspard is up for the role of role of Ukafa, the main villain in Marcus Nispel’s upcoming remake of Conan the Barbarian.

On his Myspace.com blog, Gaspard wrote about the audition, commenting, "Now it’s down to me and several others to see which one of us will go head to head with Jason Momoa. This role is as important to me as playing The Scorpion King in The Mummy Returns was for Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. I never ask my fans for much, but if you think I would be the best opponent to fight Jason Momoa in the new Conan the Barbarian film then I need you guys to hit the Conan chat rooms, forums, blogs, tweets, and message boards and let them know Shad Gaspard is the man when it comes to kicking ass and taking names on the big screen."

I think it would be pretty cool to see a relative no-name wrestler in a role like that. Good luck to Shad.

Ya, they chose Chris Hemsworth. He was Captain Kirk's dad in the latest Star Trek movie, otherwise he's a relative unknown (at least in North America, he's an Australian actor). Can't blame them for going with someone younger, I bet it was a hard role to cast.

According to a source close to the production of the forthcoming A&E documentary series "Bob Saget's Strange Days", the production team, including Saget will be filming footage at the Dragon Gate USA events in Phoenix, Arizona.

When contacted this afternoon regarding the story, DGUSA's Gabe Sapolsky declined to comment.
The new A&E series will be filming a segment based on backyard wrestling. Several months back, producers were specifically looking for amateur backyard wrestlers in Southern California with a ring set up in their backyard and homemade costumes.  They began filming that footage this week.

The concept for the comedic-documentary series is Saget immersing himself in different subcultures. It is set to debut this summer.

Didn't Bob Saget used to be the president of Chikara or something? :P

I am kind of confused. so they are doing a documentary on backyard wrestling yet they are doing it with dragon gate USA? those things just don't mix. backyard wrestling is more like CZW or something trashy or sloppy  like that while dragon gate USA has some of the best in ring wrestlers in the world today and every show they have done so far has been excellent.

Dunno, maybe it's just a portion of the show that will be at Dragon's Gate.

yeah basically just a running forarm with a lot of spin to it. i don't think it should be his finisher i think he should adopt another one. but he has been using that as his finisher for a while now.

I don't know if i have said this before but i can not tell you guys how much i hate the "what" chant.

people annoy the hell out of me when they do that and why are they doing it anyways? especially when its someone out there trying to cut  a serious promo when they're a face. it just seems like the crowed isn't listening and aren't really interested they just want to try to make some stupid chant that makes them look stupid in my opinion.

I think this happened on raw with Shawn Mcihaels or Bret hart .....or maybe both...and hell i think even undertaker got it too. that's why it has sparked my hatred for the chant, its annoying and distracting for the people watching at home and also i am assuming the wrestlers who are faces especially because they are trying to cut a serious promo that is supposed to capture everyone's attention and when they are faces they can't do the heel thing where they say "shut up" or play off of it in some way.

Agreed, I love Austin but I hate this chant with a passion. it's just stupid pantomime crap that makes me feel retarded for watching the promo. The crowd like to do a WHAT all the time as well so you have a real dread of missing what the wrestler is saying in case they shout WHAT over it. Screw putting a ban on head chair shots put a ban on this chant it is way more harmful to society.

I agree that the "WHAT?!" chant is way too old now, and that it does tend to ruin things at times - heels are able to play off it like Vince did (He said something like "If you're an idiot from Connecticut, you'll say...", the crowd said "WHAT?!" and he said "Exactly"), but it is used way too much by the crowd in completely unnecessary situations (like a Face promo), which hurts things.

In the history of the Money in the Bank match and stipulation, every  cash-in has involved Edge in some way:

1st - Edge beats John Cena
2nd - RVD beats John Cena after interference by Edge
3rd - Edge beats Undertaker
4th - CM Punk beats Edge
5th - CM Punk beats Jeff Hardy after a match with Edge
6th - Jack Swagger beats Chris Jericho after Edge beats up Jericho

This year was the fourth in a row that saw the MITB winner cash in  against the Smackdown champion.

I guess if Edge is either a champion this July or next April, or in a main event feud, expect the MITB winner to be victorious.

I just got back from the Vue Cinema in Westfield, London and overall I'm very impressed. I attended the 12pm showing and while the shortened version of The Best of Smackdown wasn't edited together particularly well, The Q & A session was extremely fun! I'd managed to get front row seats for this (thanks to Pwinsider giving me a heads up!) and was pleasantly surprised as too how open the wrestlers were to talking about any subject.
Santino Marella was certainly the most over wrestler there and he was hilarious! From explaining in the detail the mechanics of the cobra to telling us what Santina was up to (apparently she's living in Italy with her lesbian girlfriend and they've adopted a Chinese baby from Lithuania!!) - Santino even talked about Jim Cornette calling him some unflattering words.

He suffered a really bad injury at some point last year which had him out for a long time. I'm not sure if he's returned or not yet although he must have because he had that match with Bryan in FCW. Last I heard was that they were going to use him on NXT2 as one of the headliners as they wanted to use him on this show but didn't want to try and get him and Bryan over as the stars so they want to make him the Bryan of the next season if you will.

I think the honeymoon period of him being fresh and something different is well and truly over. He just blows so hot and cold, that's what annoys me. One minute he's saying some great stuff, then he will just do something completely stupid like those fucking groaning noises he makes about ten times a show as if he is the one being hit or put in a submission.

Quote from: wwe.com
Last Saturday night in Glasgow, Scotland, WWE Superstar Ezekiel  Jackson (http://www.wwe.com/superstars/smackdown/ezekiel/) suffered a tear in his enormous right quadriceps muscle  while competing against Kane (http://www.wwe.com/superstars/smackdown/kane/).

 Jackson flew from Glasgow directly to Birmingham, Alabama and the Dr.  James Andrews Sports Medicine and Orthopedic Center. Yesterday, Jackson  had successful surgery performed by Dr. Jeffrey Dugas.

 Due to the severity of his injury, Ezekiel Jackson may not be able to  compete for up to six months.
This sucks quite a lot because I feel as though he was going to get a decent push after the draft show once all the WrestleMania buildup and fallout was over and it was time to make new feuds.

After Carlito's promo on RAW i don't see why they don't just move him to Smackdown, have him team with Primo, and just have them as a mainstay tag team for a couple years. Neither have made any impact on singles competition, the tag team division is lacking so many tag teams it's ridiculous (especially now that Cryme Tyme have split). They should just try and build both of them up in that division and then split them way down the line. Both feel exhausted and spent, yet I remember enjoying them as a team a while ago, both have good chemistry together. The best tag teams have some kind of reason to be together, even if its as traditional as being siblings. Other then the Hart Dynasty, Beretta and Croft (who have made no impact at all) what other traditional tag teams are there in the WWE? At the rate the tag division is going, i wouldn't be at all surprised if they just cancelled the belts completely very soon. It would be a shame if that happened as they can be extremely fun matches to watch when executed well.

That show of his is pretty hilarious where all the girls try to be his "babe." They are just all in it for the money, attention and job opportunities in the model world because who really wants to date a washed out, old loser from Poison.

Breaking up Carlito & Primo had to of been one of the worst decisions of 09. I along with others absolutely loved that pairing, mostly because Carlito looked like he have a fuck for the first time in a long while. The break-up wasn't ever going to benefit either man, it seemed so forced.

Not sure if this had been posted or not. I find it quite ironic that Flair AND McMahon have both wrestled matches in their late 50's/early 60's for WWE even though both of them had become less than capable towards the end. Yet Finlay, who is 52 and still capable of having great matches - is pulled.

First of all, flair is one of the best wrestlers ever and wrestled some of his best matches late in his career despite his age. And in the end they forced him to retire because of his age.

Secondly, McMahon wrestles like 2 times a year in gimmick matches to blow over feuds, and he's generally retired as a wrestler as well and never wrestled full time.

Thirdly, Finlay is an active wrestler, meaning if they use him he'd have to wrestle each week.

So it's not the same thing. I'm kind of on the fence about this though because I did always like him as a wrestler, but I understand that his spot SHOULD be going to a younger guy. It's not like Flair or mcmahon are taking his spot on the roster.

I read just a couple of days ago that the WWE was going to encourage all  their main eventers to join twitter and it seems like just this past  Monday John Cena opened up his own account at http://www.twitter.com/wwejcena ...He even had an interesting  exchange at one point...

Quote from: John Cena's Twitter account
Guys, I really appreciate the respect for the  freestyle. It would have no home in todays enviroment

It would be a weak, watered down, rehash of  something that was very fun to be a part of while it lasted

I still freestyle all the time, it just wouldn't  be right for me right now, I really like the place where I am, and where

Wwe is. I guess it will just stay a gem in the  archives

Guys I am sorry to dissapoint but what u see on tv  is what u get. That's pretty close to me in real life. I'm sorry if u  think I'm watered

Down, I've been called worse.

While he also built up his match with Batista for the most part, I'm glad that he's able to be open and honest about some of the complaints fans have made about his gimmick over the past couple years.  Now that he's on twitter theres no doubt he will hear a lot of the bitching that goes on, not that he doesn't hear it from the fans as it was before twitter.  I knew that once TV-PG went into full effect there was probably no way he could ever go back to having an edgy personality.  From now on, the most extreme gimmicks we'll probably see are what Orton's doing now and maybe some stuff from Edge.  As much as I've grown tired of Cena, now that he has opened a direct connection with the fans there's opportunity to see some improvements.

I have noticed that the ring ropes on RAW have been white for the past few weeks. Is this because they left them in the UK and haven't been able to fly them back over yet because I really hate the white ones. Red suits RAW end of. Maybe use the white ones occasionally for like PPV, but they should keep them off when possible, I just find them really distracting.

I didn't even notice....
 
When Cena freestyled he was sort of like the cocky wigger who thought he was down whereas now his character has evolved into someone who has respect and is disciplined who is now wise to his old, arrogant ways.
If he were to go back to the jokey freestyle raps his character would do a complete 180 turn.

According to their Smackdown bios, Curt Hawkins and Vance Archer have earned full Smackdown contracts due to "several acts of squared circle chaos". Archer's bio also mentions that he used to wrestle for a "regional promotion in Florida" before being signed by ECW.

Archer, as Lance Hoyt, worked for TNA for several years.


I know they probably meant FCW, but it would be hilarious if they actually meant TNA :lol

R-Truth is said to have tweaked his knee while wrestling against the Miz at the Raw house show in Youngstown, Ohio, which led to an early end of their bout.

At the Portland, Maine Smackdown house show, Cody Rhodes was out on his feet after being dumped hard by Kofi Kingston and Matt Hardy during a double back suplex. He eventually continued the match after being out for several minutes and after the match was helped out by trainers.

The same Portland, Maine show saw Kelly Kelly's match with Layla El abruptly end after Kelly took a bad shot to either her shoulder or neck (I've heard both).

If and when we hear more, we'll update.

Thanks to Brandon and Nick for their help.

if indeed Rhodes and Truth are injured it could leave a spot open in both MITB matches, and it would suck for Rhodes as it looks like he was starting to get a push... Sounds like he's alright though and I'd expect him to at least continue doing promos.

According to Jason Powell, Randy Orton was visibly upset following his in-ring segment with The Miz on the 7/26 edition of WWE RAW. Apparently, Orton felt the way Miz was positioned gave away that he would be getting hit with an RKO.

Several months ago, Orton got upset with Kofi Kingston being out of position during a match and yelled out "STUPID!" at Kingston on live TV.

And kofi didn't get pushed again until he went to SD!

not good news for Miz  wonder if it will effect his push, as we know if you make Orton mad its not good news for you...then again as we heard before Miz is one of vince's favorite now so who knows?

WWE Diva Tiffany (Taryn Terrell) was suspended by World Wrestling Entertainment earlier this week after an incident in San Jose, California at the hotel WWE had booked talents into, according to numerous sources within the company.
The incident, which WWE sources claim was a domestic issue between Terrell and husband Drew McIntryre, led to police being called to the scene. We have conflicting reports over whether Terrell was arrested by the San Jose PD. PWInsider.com is awaiting a return call from the San Jose Police Department's Public Affairs office.

Terrell, who was scheduled to wrestle this Sunday at the Summerslam PPV, was sent home by WWE management after the incident, according to two separate sources.

WWE has not publicly acknowledged the suspension or any potential change to the PPV as I write this.

Wonder what happened. Obviously they're not going to suspend drew if he was involved because he's stroking Vince's private area.

Wrestlezone - Jorge "Giant" Gonzalez, a former member of the Aregentina Olympic basketball team in the 1988 Olympics, known to wrestling fans from his runs in both WWE and WCW from 1990-93, passed away today in a San Martin, Arentina hospital today.

Gonzalez had a run in WCW as EL Gigante, along with a run in WWE as Giant Gonzalez (including an early loss on The Undertaker's WrestleMania undefeated streak run) ,and stood a legitimate 7'6'' and weighing around the 400 pound mark.

Gonzalez was 44 years of age.


Crazy to think that he was so young when he first showed up in WWE, he always looked older for obvious reasons. RIP.

I've heard that the match between Sheamus and John Morrison recently was really good so I might check that out, the Miz/Bryan feud has been good so I might watch a couple of those promos, and the Nexus stuff.

As noted before, Edge has been traded to Smackdown by the RAW General  Manager. It appears that CM Punk will be going to RAW now after a new  line-up has been issued for the RAW live event on Friday night in  Anaheim, California. Edge has been replaced on the card by Punk in a  match against R-Truth.

Doesn't make much sense to me, but usually when someone goes to raw you think great its time for them to get buried but in this case Punk has been doing nothing but getting buried on SD so i don't know how this will go. in all likelyness this is a bad move because punk has to take a backseat to Nexus,Sheamus and Miz

I'm guessin he was supposed to be on team raw before he got hurt thats why santino is there now. good way to write him off though. i hope he gets well soon and when he does he gets drafted to SD because hes been booked like shit since MITB.

WWE performer Kevin Kiley (Alex Riley) was arrested this morning in Tampa, Florida for Driving under the Influence.

The apprentice of The Miz was stopped at 1:14 a.m. at Kennedy BL W/MACDILL AV N in Tampa, Florida and booked into the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at 2:56 a.m.

He was released at 9:33 a.m. on $500 bond.

If Miz does cash in on Sunday like many predict, this could spell the end of Riley on the main roster. They could easily just a run an angle where Miz fires him now he has the WWE Title and Riley can be sent back down to FCW for some punishment.

That's probably the worst case scenario because countless guys have been done for this before, Barrett, Ted, Helms, Jericho to name just a few.

Malenko, age 50, was backstage at Sunday's Survivor Series pay-per-view in Miami and lives in the area. Mushnick adds that no mention has been made to anyone of recent health problems. Mushnick reached out to WWE spokesman Robert Zimmerman but had not received a response.

WWE dismissed two to four creative team writers last week, in addition to Christopher DeJoseph. Their names have yet to be disclosed.

The writers were reportedly cut loose because company officials were displeased with the results of the last financial quarterly report and felt it would be in their best interest to acquire new writers with fresh ideas.

WWE has been actively scouting potential writers in recent months.

Also last night on Raw I heard John Cena say something about him going over the time and Billy Kidman was gonna be mad. does that mean Billy Kidman works for WWE again in some backstage role? if so thats the first i have ever heard or emember hearing about it. but it so thats awesome! i have been wondering where he was, i was always a fan of his.

- On the recent SmackDown show from England, WWE did production edits to make it look like Alberto Del Rio's ring announcer Ricardo Rodriguez was there when he wasn't even brought on the tour.

- There has been a lot of second-guessing on decision making in WWE lately regarding what's done on pay-per-views vs. TV shows.

- As noted before, WWE creative writer Christopher DeJoseph was let go by the company last week. His dismissal is seen by some in WWE as a warning shot to SmackDown head writer Michael Hayes, since the two were close friends.

There are currently so many new writers in the company that the long-timers don't even know their names. The long-time "big five" writers were considered to be Hayes, DeJoseph, NXT & Superstars writer Ed Koskey along with RAW writers Brian Gewirtz and David Kapoor, also known as Ranjin Singh.

Didn't know Ranjin was a writer for WWE.

Hmm, I was assuming it might be shorter given how he was written off this time around rather then being fired or put into a loser gets sacked typed match. Just the punt to the head seems like a way to create a future feud with Orton.

Haha, its funny you mention that, someone mentioned this on a youtube video of him earlier. In a way, I prefer his current gimmick to that one. A couple months back I'm sure I mentioned his gimmick felt a bit stale, but I reckon that if he returned it would actually be awesome again. I am open to seeing him return as a face though. If he were to return as a face I'd like to see something different, last time he returned as the ayatollah of rock and rolla it seemed a bit of a flop. Not saying thats a bad gimmick though, I found it hilarious back in the time!

I would love to see him win the Rumble this year, however, in all honesty I am sick and tired of the constant "surprise" return victories we've had lately. Another year with that would just annoy me. Saying this, there are a lot of guys out injured or whatever at the moment, not sure when a lot of them are coming back, but I'm pretty sure both Triple H and CM Punk could return around that point, Jericho, Christian (not sure about the circumstances of his injury), Cena (although that is unlikely) and Undertaker. I can see the rumble being a form of bringing a lot of these guys back and building mania feuds up, just unsure how its going to be done.

I actually like the 'Spinner that hasn't even spun for years belt' and personally thought it looked good on quite a few guys, Cena, Orton & Sheamus and I think because of how bulky and blingy it is, it makes it look like the top title. With that being said, I really thought it didn't suit Miz and i'm pretty excited about new one possibly being introduced although a bit apprehensive because the tag titles were changed recently and they weren't exactly great.

1. New Nexus shirt = 1000000 times better than the other N shirt.

2. The "spinner" belt hasn't spun in years. I wouldn't be against a design change but I actually like the current title and it's very representative of the WWE since the Cena era begun. I think I actually like it as much as the old WCW-style title they still use on SD.

3. Cena finding his old belt in the trust would be an instant win :mrk

The latest word on Triple H is that he is not expected to return to WWE programming until January at the earliest, possibly at the Royal Rumble.

Unless Triple H Wins the rumble and goes to SD it's looking more and more like Triple H vs Sheamus Wrestlemania rematch, because i mean they have to have triple h want revenge right? and they have to have a PPV match and at EC PPV im sure they will be in the chamber match its self.

Even though NXT turned to shit while they broadcasted it on TV, I still had that little urge inside to want to watch regardless of how bad it ended up being. While it's been broadcasted on wwe.com and then on TV days later, I don't feel like trying to invest it.

They really need to slow down on NXT though they're just introducing so many guys at once and granted they may not all make it to TV but there just seem's to be too many people too soon.

In recent years, non-main event talent preferred SmackDown to RAW because there was more room for career growth. Currently, WWE's Friday night brand features veterans garnering most of the spotlight with only a few exceptions.

One WWE source said that while Hayes received much praise for pushing younger talent, his focus is generally on the veterans. Writers who have worked under him are the real reason young talent are showcased on SmackDown.

I Always liked hayes though i always thought he was the one behind the younger talent being pushed. this may be the right move bcause besides alberto and Cody and Ziggler to some extent the younger guys have been getting treated pretty badly

The biggest problem with SD lately as far as I'm concerned is the fact that it's literally becoming the same thing every week. Kane promo, Kofi vs. Swagger, Edge segment, Kane backstage, Match, Match, Main event, Kane segment.

The Raw Superstars announcer Scott Stanford sucks. he's old and doesn't seem to know much about wrestling.

The new Smackdown superstars announcer Jack Korpela is really good though, he seem's like a legit wrestling fan and has a good voice and seems really excited.

lol he's been tossed around the brands a lot... saw the promo during the show and I like it. I assume Kane is close to leaving and besides big Show there isn't really a big guy on SD so he'll fit right in. Hopefully they actually push him.

I'm starting to lose interest in Zeke. i always liked him but its got to the point where i just don't really care much. with that said normally i would say he will be getting treated better on SD but just Ask Drew or Kaval or Swagger or Kingston the last few months. SD seems not not want to push much youth.

Oh and Reks too for that matter. why make his debut a big deal then only have him beat guys on superstars? just like raw did Jackson.

Kane has been World Champion since July after winning the SD MITB and cashing in on Rey Mysterio. He then feuded with The Undertaker and beat him at 3 straight PPV's (Burying him alive at the last) -- He's gone on to start a feud with Edge who kidnapped Paul Bearer. They're going to be facing off for the World Championship at TLC in a 4 way TLC match (alongside Rey Mysterio and Alberto Del Rio)

Del Rio debuted a few months back and is making an impact as a major heel. He has been feuding with Rey pretty much since his debut, he also took Christian out of action.

Dolph Ziggler is IC Champion and will be defending in a 3 way ladder match against Kofi Kingston and Jack Swagger. He's been on a roll as champion.

Cody Rhodes has become "Dashing" and is working a pretty boy gimmick. Kaval (Low Ki) won NXT Season 2 and has been trying to get wins on SD (he's currently got two to his name), Tyler Reks was brought back with a serious gimmick but is going nowhere, Laycool are still being bitches and are currently going into a tables match with Natalya and Beth Phoenix at the PPV.

Probably missed out some stuff, but that's what I can remember.

Just re-watched the Nexus debut, during which CM Punk was wrestling John Cena and I've had a thought. CM Punk in Nexus, as their leader? Punk faces Cena and Nexus debuts, Darren Young (Punks NXT rookie) is the first gone from the group and after Punk said he'd come back and get revenge on the person who took him out, I would love for them to tie this all together.

I know I'm grasping at straws, but I would love for this to happen.
Title: Random WWE Discussion thread
Post by: Dale on 21 December 2010, 06:39:09 PM
It does sound like it's grasping at straws but I think Punk being aligned / in Nexus is pretty plausible given the way he's been shitting all over Cena recently and the way he was showing sympathy towards the Nexus.

I Actually was thinking the same and was telling people in the CBox in the stream i was watching TLC on when Ounk came out to specifically commentate the match with Cena and Wade. it seemed to come full Curcle with those 3.

Nexus always has said there was a higher power behind them or something like that. then again nexus has more than one hole in there storyline. never was explained why they helped kane beat taker then a couple weeks later Kane is with all the SD guys going against them.

With all that said about Punk though i kind of don't want him to be aligned with Nexus. I really like the CM Punk we got right now and i don't want to see him altered in any way.

I'm hoping this drags out with Cena Until Wrestlemania though, i hope Punk says he can't wrestle because he isn't Medically cleared then shows up at the Rumble and Wins it then have Cena win at the Chamber and have those 2 go at it at Mania. Because im having a hard time trying to think about fresh feuds for wrestlemania at the moment because let's face it we got the same top guys. Triple H,Cena and Orton. and honestly i don't want to see Why that high in the card.

- The Raw Taped matches for WWE Superstars are: Zack Ryder vs Yoshi Tatsu. and Daniel Bryan & Mark Henry vs Ted Dibiase & Tyson Kidd

- Jackson Andrews did not accompany Tyson Kidd for his match at tonight's WWE Superstars taping in Phoenix, Arizona. He last accompanied Kidd at Thursday's RAW live event in Washington D.C.

-- To follow up on the news of former TNA Knockouts champion Awesome Kong signing with World Wrestling Entertainment, WWE reportedly asked Kong to clear up her legal situation in Florida before going to work for the company. Kong was arrested last month in Hillsborough County, Florida for driving without a suspended license. According to a WWE source, Kong no longer lives in Florida but went back in December to turn herself in and resolve the traffic violation.

-- WWE.com today unveiled their top 11 "up-and-coming competitors the world of sports-entertainment will be talking about this year." The ranking is as follows: 11. Ezekiel Jackson, 10. Tyson Kidd, 9. Tamina, 8. Alex Riley, 7. David Otunga, 6. Drew McIntyre, 5. Skip Sheffield, 4. Cody Rhodes, 3. Dolph Ziggler, 2. Daniel Bryan, 1. Alberto Del Rio.

Some news. Looks like Bryan got put down to Superstars this week which isn't good. at least he's involved in a match with Kidd though, i still hope that goes on and glad Andrews didn't come out with him because that was just a failure all together.

Can't wait to see Kong in WWE. I want to See Kong vs Gail the WWE version those 2 put on some GREAT matches in TNA which is rare for me to say about the females. would also like to see Kong vs Beth and i think Kong vs Lay-cool could work great...I Actually have hope abd have been enjoying the diva's division.

Kind of shocked to see Skip so high and Jackson so low. and i guess they already consider guys like Morrison, Swagger and Kingston to already be Legit? And have given up on Ted Dibiase, and don't care about Tyler Reks.lol.

I Personally would have liked to see Evan Bourne and Justin Gabriel on the list. and Maybe Yoshi Tatsu. and of course Zack Ryder but you know he won't do anything next year =/

I am glad Skip is so high though, he was the best part of Nexus in my opinion. Glad Bryan and Ziggler are high too but you know what I'm not so big on DelRio. I liked him at first but to be honest his gimmick is incredibly bland even if his in ring skills are good and theres just something about him thats boring in the same way that JBL bored me to tears.

-- Continuing their angle from Monday's Raw, SmackDown Superstar Alberto Del Rio lost to R-Truth in a singles match at Friday's Raw live event in Augusta, Georgia. He lost to the former United States Champion for the second consecutive night at Saturday's SmackDown live event in Lexington, Kentucky.

- Yet-to-debut SmackDown talent Ezekiel Jackson beat Tyler Reks in a squash match at Saturday night's SmackDown live event in Lexington, Kentucky. WWE has been running "Coming Soon" vignettes of Jackson since the Dec. 17 SmackDown.

This may further help explain Del Rios match with Truth on Raw Maybe they will start a feud now and Del Rio will go to Raw in a Trade for Wade going to SD....Dumb Teddy Long.lol.

So i guess he's not injured but i had totally forgot all about him. it seems they never know what to do with him, so much its like an ongoing joke where people can say well you know zeke's getting that big push really soon...

I disagree, if anything it sends a bad message to take him away. Sure, you shouldn't encourage children to be overweight, but Husky shows that you don't have to have a six pack in order to succeed in life and IMO that's a good message. Could he stand to lose a few pounds? Probably. But I commended the WWE for using him despite the fact that he was overweight. Cutting him for it just makes them look shallow again.

Personally I'd love to see Shelton return as well, with a manager he could be good and lets face it the guy is amazing in the ring. Daniel Bryan vs Shelton would be a great match.

Sad to hear about Hall, these things happen though.

Is anybody getting sick of WWE replaying entire segments? This week on Smackdown, they replayed the entire JBL/Cole segment from Raw and they've been doing it a lot with The Rock/Cena, also. I realise that they want to promote things as much as possible and not everybody has seen it, but I find it ridiculously tedious.

Another agreement here - I understand a quick recap, but most of the times that they replay entire segments it just seems to be too much. Especially when you consider that what they used for the full segment could have had some of the time used to extend matches longer than they did go.

- Ted DiBiase made his first television appearance since February 24 on Friday's episode of SmackDown, losing to Rey Mysterio in a quick match. He was not the only Raw Superstar to compete on the show as Sheamus beat Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston in a Non-Title Match earlier in the broadcast. It's interesting to note that a SmackDown name plate was displayed during DiBiase's ring entrance, whereas a Raw name plate was displayed when Sheamus made his entrance.

I Noticed this as well. if he is going to SD he needs to do a face turn because there is too many heels as it is who aren't getting used right or have no one to feud with like Drew and Swagger was until they threw him into being coles trainer.

- WWE filmed a major angle with Snooki, Trish Stratus, Layla and Michelle McCool to air on this coming Monday's RAW yesterday at Miami Mike's Sports Zone in East Hanover, NJ, according to Popthecrowd.com.

The segment sees LayCool searching the bar for Snooki and Trish. Snooki fights with a guy trying to hit on her before LayCool finds her and they brawl in the bar. The segment, which was produced by WWE agents Finlay and Ranjin Singh, also sees LayCool put through a table.

According to the report, Snooki was supposed to begin filming at 10am but she didn't leave her hotel room until 1pm and filming didn't start until 3pm and finished around 8pm. Snooki was also said to have been heavily drinking the entire day and was bragging to the bartender that she would be a full-time WWE Diva once Jersey Shore was done.

Sounds very unprofessional to me.

Is anybody else finding themselves distracted by the championship belt of The Miz. He's obviously been given one of the replicas and had the WWE logo held in place upside down and it just looks SO awful on TV. It was especially obvious when there were close ups on him during the segment with Austin on Raw.

Could they not just have turned the logo on the actual belt? or on another? Surely that isn't the only one they have.

He suffered from the WWE trying to turn everybody into a wrestler, sorry Superstar. Along with Daivari he was a fucking great manager that WWE ruined by having them move into the ring. It's only a matter of time before Ricardo Rodriguez suffers the same fate.
Title: Re: Random WWE Discussion thread
Post by: Adampro123 on 13 April 2011, 09:59:30 PM
Well Davari was a wrestler or entertainer before he came to WWe to be a manager so im sure its not really any fault to them on that one. and also ricardo is too i believe. and Estrada was really ripped so i guess they wanted to take advantage of that somehow? but when he went to ECW to be the GM is was all downhill from there.
Title: Re: Random WWE Discussion thread
Post by: Dale on 13 April 2011, 10:32:37 PM
That's what I mean though, they brought Daivari & Estrada in primarily as managers and they were super successful but WWE being WWE they want to transition everyone into a Superstar, or the backstage Diva announcers into fully fledged a Diva and they ended up bombing. You can almost guarantee that Rodriguez will follow suit too.

Heenan, Jimmy Hart, even some of the girl valets like Sunny later on... They just got done inducting Paul Ellering to the Hall of Fame.

Chris Jericho, who was eliminated last night from Dancing with the Stars, teased a possible appearance at this Sunday's WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view event—which takes place in Tampa, Florida.

He wrote on Twitter, "For the first time in 8 weeks I dont have dance rehearsals. What am I going to do with myself now? Anythin goin on in Tampa this weekend...?"

Jim Ross, who is competing at the event, asked Jericho, "Ever been in a Country Whippin Match? I need a coach or a stunt double. Interested?"

He replied, "No but I have been in a barb wire match, a penalty box match and everything in between. I'll do it! Plus I even have my own Stetson."

He's probably just messing around but I'd mark if Jericho came back at Extreme Rules.

I'd be shocked if he came back this soon since the WWE wouldn't have known Jericho might be available until this past Tuesday.  Also, I'm pretty sure Jericho is going to have to appear at the season finale which is still taped on WWE TV nights.  I don't expect Jericho back until late June/early July, maybe a little sooner.

JeriPunk? Ok, the combined tag name works, I approve.

Even if he doesn't "return" right away it would be nice to get a surprise appearance. Doesn't happen too often. Not to mention, with the Rock's birthday celebration on Monday it could make for a good moment since they have history. Overall WWE could use him pretty badly.

A few things

Quote
- Zack Ryder had his WWE Internet Title belt with him at last night’s RAW live event in Salt Lake City, Utah as he defeated Drew McIntyre. Ryder filmed the first in-ring episode of his YouTube show last night and was asking fans at ringside to be his Broski of the Night. A local wrestler, Tyler Cintron, was in the crowd with a “You’re Not Dolph” sign and had a back-and-forth verbal exchange with Ryder.

Sounds pretty cool, i don't know whats going on with him and that one guy, Glad to hear Drew isn't injured.

Quote
- As noted yesterday, a WWE Title match between Rey Mysterio and the winner of SummerSlam’s CM Punk vs. John Cena match is being advertised for the RAW in San Diego, the night after SummerSlam.

WWE’s website has a new storyline interview with Mysterio talking about the title shot from his hometown. Rey said he is demanding his rematch for the August 15th RAW.

BUT

Quote
- WWE United States Champion Dolph Ziggler suffered a pulled abdominal muscle at last night’s RAW live event in Salt Lake City, Utah. Word is that Dolph will be working through with the injury.

Also, the apparent Rey Mysterio knee injury we posted on earlier is reportedly legit. No word yet if Rey will be wrestling tonight but it has been confirmed that he at least “tweaked” his knee.

Partial source: F4Wonline.com

Rey injured again is no big shock, Hopefully it's not too bad and he can compete at Summer Slam and the night after Summer Slam. Punk vs Rey or Cena vs Rey or even ADR vs Rey would all be good especially in Reys hometown.

Zigglers injury doesn't seem too bad, hopefully he can keep the title and won't be dropping it to Alex Riley.

CM Punk says he received some of the "most ridiculous offers from the most unbelievable sources" during his brief time away from WWE last month after the Money in the Bank pay-per-view.

During a radio interview with Mark Madden from last week, Punk acknowledged that he was brought back to television too soon and there were a "billion" scenarios that could have played out prior to his return. After acknowledging that WWE brought him back sooner than expected to give a jolt to business, Punk said:

“Now you’re getting into the numbers side of the business. Sure, I would have loved to drag it out. There’s a billion different scenarios you could have done. I could have went and worked indies. I had the most ridiculous offers from the most unbelievable sources. I’ll write a book some day and it’ll be a hell of a chapter."

"It would have been fun to go do commentary for like Titan Fighting Championship, it would have been fun to maybe show up at a ROH show, or go bother Gabe at Evolve, do all kinds of fun stuff. The bottom line is we have a TV show and a pay-per-view to sell. Basically it’s the hottest thing and you just kind of ride it until the wheels fall off."

Could it have been done in a more entertaining way? If everything is selling out and business is awesome, then yeah, maybe. Maybe.”

- At Sunday's WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view, Kevin Nash made a surprise return to WWE television and destroyed CM Punk following his win over John Cena, allowing Alberto Del Rio to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase and leave SummerSlam as WWE champion.

It's worth noting that Nash's official website lists several apearances for the Awesome Wrestling Entertainment promotion in September and October. It's unknown at this time whether Nash will keep those dates, now that he's a key piece in WWE's top main event storyline.

Quote
- Up until yesterday afternoon, Rey Mysterio was scheduled to face The Miz in singles action at SummerSlam. The decision was made to put them both in the six-man match with Alberto Del Rio, R-Truth, Kofi Kingston and John Morrison because they didn't want to risk Rey doing further damage to his knee in a singles match. Rey is scheduled to face Del Rio for the WWE Title on tonight's RAW.

Quote
- WWE posted a backstage video of Sheamus after his loss to Mark Henry at SummerSlam. Sheamus warned Henry that their rivalry was far from over.

- Randy Orton became a three-time World Heavyweight Champion by defeating Christian at last night's SummerSlam pay-per-view. WWE had been going with the idea of another Orton vs. Christian match at September's night of Champions pay-per-view but last night's match was billed as their "final encounter" on the SummerSlam pre-show.

PWInsider.com reports that Tough Enough winner Andy Leavine, who is currently training in Florida Championship Wrestling, has been suspended for 30 days due to a violation of their Talent Wellness Program.

Leavine's suspension has yet to be publicly announced by WWE. He is believed to have failed a drug test.

The organization announced earlier today that referee Mike Chioda had been suspended for 30 days due to a violation of their Talent Wellness Program.

Just a bunch of random news really.
Andy from tough enough getting suspended not a good thing for him.
Looks like Christian vs Orton and Henry vs Sheamus might not be over just yet like it seemed. i figured we would get Sheamus vs Christian and Henry vs Orton now.

I think a lot of that stuff could have gone into the established threads we have for those topics but whatever.

Post by: J.D on 16 August 2011, 12:35:04 AM
People feel the need to do roids because of the immense pressure the WWE puts on guys. Bryan is a well built man but the commentators say he needs protein etc. They set an unbelievably high standard and in the business it is better to be a fat guy who turned a lot of fat into muscle like Batista than a fit healthy and toned guy with a desirable body e.g. John Morrison.
I mean they call Christian weedy yet in reality he isn't.

Post by: Adampro123 on 16 August 2011, 12:43:15 AM
Well i know that in WWE they want there refs to look as average and lesser than the talents as possible so i doubt it's roids.

I think I mentioned this in the Sin Cara thread, but roids aren't necessarily for bulking up and looking bigger, in fact the smaller guys are generally more at risk for taking them for a lot of the reasons Chappers mentioned, because of this mantra in WWE that smaller and less toned isn't as good. I would kill to look like Bryan or Christian but WWE pushes this ideal that they don't look good, and that's kind of really irresponsible.

If I had to guess, I would likely say it was painkillers though. Refs take a lot of bumps and he could have had a nagging injury or something, but it could have also been roids as they tend to give you more energy.

Ricardo Rodriguez has his own stable in WWE developmental territory FCW with Raquel Diaz (Vickie Guerrero's daughter), Tito Colon, Conor O'Brian and Kenneth Cameron. Recently on episode of FCW TV, Rodriguez did a storyline interview and said that WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio is his employee after Del Rio came to Ricardo's father's agency a few years ago and they signed him. Ricardo said in the interview that he and his "associates" would take over FCW and then WWE.

Obviously this would never happen in WWE but something along these lines could be an interesting way to turn ADR face if they ever wanted to or make Ricardo a better manager.

Yeah i didn't watch yet but Titus on Superstars while he is on NXT trying to get a contract is weird. I like the team of Hawkins & Reks. and glad Percy finally made the roster because Raw needs more lower card faces since getting rid of Masters and Kozlov.

As for Mason Ryan i would figure he would return in a bigger way. we usually don't get returns on Superstars but i guess they did the same with clay too so why not. i don't know how well ryan is gonna work being a face but we'll see.

- Seth Rollins is going on the road with WWE next week. He’s seen as the FCW star with the most potential, despite not being as polished as they’d like. The hope is that he learns to connect with the crowds better after getting experience working live events.

- While Seth Rollins is viewed as the developmental wrestler with the most upside right now, Dean Ambrose is right behind him and is a more well-rounded talent. Ambrose can talk and is a better worker than many of WWE’s main eveners.

- With CM Punk and and Daniel Bryan’s recent success as well as the potential of Rollins and Ambrose, the stigma behind being an “indy” worker is not as bad as it was even six months ago.

I can't wait to see these guys be brought up i have always been fans of both.

I like the draft as an event, and I like the idea of them having two shows to showcase specific talent on each, but if they're not going to use that to their advantage then there's no point. The problem is that they can't control injuries and injuries force them to have to use the same talent on both shows. Another solution would be to allow "trades" of sorts.
Title: Re: Random WWE Discussion thread

I agree, but that takes time and injuries are sudden. Hell they wanted to push Barrett to the top and he got injured. So it's not like they don't try. I think it's honestly just one of those times where we have to be patient. They've debuted like 5-6 guys since Mania,

To be honest, having someone legitimately known battling for the tag belts would be a good thing for them. I just think they need some stability and direction and that division could be pretty good, I actually want to see more of Epico and Primo as they can both work a match.
Title: Re: Random WWE Discussion thread
Post by: Adampro123 on 17 April 2012, 06:13:26 PM
Hawkins & Reks are so underrated and underutilized. Obviously Show & Kahli are the most known and they were just featured and they are both giants so most people only know those guys especially casual fans.

It's just such a shame what tag team wrestling has become. and its not like its just started to happen, it's been like this for years now. I think back to what i think was the best time in tag team wrestling and was my favorite time in all of wrestling the early 2000's when you had the Hardys, Dudleys, E&C, APA, T&A. The thing is the division back then would have never became anything if the WWE didn't feature them. If all of these teams were just on Sunday night heat every week then they would be in the same position as Primo & Epico and like most of the tag teams and the whole division has been in recent years. So I would really like to see the WWE just really start featuring teams and focus more on the division, now i don't think Primo & Epico are a great team though. I think they are a solid middle of the road team like a too cool back in the day or a right to censor like at that level. But if they really want to improve they should start focusing more on tag teams and not just thrown together known guys like show & Kahli or Kofi & Truth and whoever and whoever but teams they can establish a chemistry and get some tag team moves and teams that you would think would like teaming together. and they can't just have one segment for tag teams a week with it just being the tag champs and then whoever is challenging them for that month they need to have at least 2 segments with at least 4-6 different legit teams.

I say all of this but i do not believe any of it will happen. i do not believe the tag team divison will improve anytime soon. BUT i do think once WWE gets the WWE Network going we may have more hope for all of the WWE because with more TV time they can try out a lot more things and i think it will give a lot more talent an opportunity.

They could easily have Christian re-team with Jericho and interfere at Extreme Rules to give Jericho the victory, I'd actually like to see that tbh and given the fact that Jericho is going in a couple months it could help Christian slingshot back into the main event. Plus it could tie in with Christians "one more match" gimmick, Johnny and Punk have had a heated feud in the past, Christian helping to get the title off of Punk could be his repayment for getting injured before Mania and getting that title shot on Smackdown, or maybe he could turn against his old friend Jericho and win it for when he leaves. All of this is probably unlikely though since the WWE seem to hate to push Christian.

As noted by our live report we posted this past weekend, Dolph Ziggler debuted his new bodyguard. During WWE live events this past weekend, Mason Ryan was with Dolph Ziggler after Ziggler said he wants Ryan to be watching his back from now on. Mason Ryan got involved in Ziggler's matches.

I think I always liked Mason Ryan more than the rest of you so I'm okay with this, and I guess it lets Swagger have a bigger role on his own, which he desperately needs, but we'll see how this goes.

Yeah I think Mason Ryan is alright, funny that this is happening given that they fed Ziggler to Ryan a while back. I just hope that they do something to announce this rather then just having him appear with no reason, its not like Mason Ryan has been off TV for long.

Ziggler Without vickie just Beat Mason Ryan on Superstars this passed week so it will be interesting to see if they involve that. But I'm okay with the idea as long as it means Ziggler gets more of a push and isn't stuck losing to Clay and Santino all the time.

One man rock band i just can't take serious. especially when he hasn't shown any sort of musical talent or has shown any musical background. I kind of get the feeling they were like "Hey he's got that southern voice and he has long hair, let's call him The one man southern rock band"

His wrestling skills will get better in time and to be fair we haven't really seen him in anything but getting squashed lately so he may have already improved.

According to F4WOnline.com, WWE was so thrilled with the amount of views that the Extreme Rules pre-show drew, it is likely that the YouTube pre-shows will become a regular thing prior to PPV events.

It's being said that WWE is making big money off its new partnership with YouTube, so you can expect to see the company continue to push a lot of content through the YouTube channel.

I'm more than fine with that. Pre-shows have been a long time coming, dare I say since they cancelled heat.

- Plans that WWE originally had for Lord Tensai has been changed for The Big Show. Tensai will be undergoing a makeover, according to the Wrestling Observer. WWE has already started with the makeover by dropping the robe and the "Lord" part from his name a few weeks back. Tensai worked two matches at last night's WWE RAW, one prior to the live taping squashing Alex Riley, and again in the dark match main event where he teamed with Big Show and John Lauranitis to face John Cena in a handicap match. He was pinned by John Cena.

- The Wrestling Observer also reports that Dolph Ziggler is being built for a match against Randy Orton for WWE No Way Out. Orton was originally scheduled to face Chris Jericho at the pay-per-view but due to Jericho's suspension, he won't be appearing the event.

Couldn't have better news really.

Tensai never worked and i hope they just redo him and make him another type of guy because he just bored the life out of me other than laughing at how ridiculous he looked.

Ziggler and Orton always have great matches. of course i think Ziggler has won 1 of those matches and Orton has won like 8 of them.lol. but im looking forward to a PPV match between the 2, it should be great and although orton will probably win its better for Ziggler than to just job to kofi and truth all the time.

Riley <3

I actually liked Tensai. I dunno what the problem was. Maybe they pushed him too quickly too, nowhere to go but down after you beat Cena really.

And I'm looking forward to Dolph/Orton. Orton kinda needs the win because he's been on a losing streak, but so does Dolph. Hopefully that makes it unpredictable.

Tensai's alright, considering his size he seemed to move around quite well. I think he flopped due to the special treatment he received. He has never been a great superstar, I wouldn't class him as that now either, yet he was instantly thrown on the main roster (a lot of guys seem to have to go through FCW or whatever), pushed to the heavens with a win over Cena after debuting two weeks prior and hasn't proved to the crowd that he deserves it. Bad move really, particularly when there's guys on the roster who have been with the company for the past 6 years or so that probably deserve a victory of that magnitude way more. A lot of his gimmick felt tacky as well, parts of it were alright but he looked ridiculous with his shredder outfit, dumb with all the samurai movements and a diabolical name in Lord Tensai rubbed in even more with the cheap Lord Tensai writing on the titantron. Everyone knows hes a yank as well, an american samurai makes absolutely no sense. Hopefully when he is shuffled into the roster again he'll prove his worth some more, good in the ring for a big guy but not the amazing breakthrough talent they had us leading to believe.

Agreed. Kind of annoys me when they just push someone to high heaven like that for no reason yet when a fan favourite needs a push e.g. Christian, John Morrison, Zack Ryder or even a guy who has worked really hard e.g. Kofi Kingston they don't give them those big wins.
Title: Re: Random WWE Discussion thread
Post by: RyPrax on 31 May 2012, 03:28:19 PM
I think there was plenty of reason behind it. The guy paid his dues in WWE a decade ago with a lot of shitty gimmicks and toiling in the mid card, and then went to Japan and became even better. Just because he hasn't been in the company doesn't mean he hasn't been working and paying dues. It's not like he's a guy they brought in from UFC or the NFL.

SuperLuchas.net reports Cody Rhodes recently tested positive on a drug test for a banned substance but was cleared after providing a valid prescription from a licensed and treating physician.

Prior to being cleared, it would appear that Rhodes believed he was facing suspension. The day after dropping the Intercontinental Championship to Christian at Over the Limit, he cryptically wrote on Twitter: "Time off." He appeared at the following day's SmackDown taping in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and all SmackDown shows since then.

The website also reports that another WWE performer whose name has not been disclosed recently had a positive drug test and will be suspended if a valid prescription is not produced.

Explains his "Time off" tweet. Wonder if the other guy is Albert beings they pretty much stopped his push.

Carlito Colon appeared this week on MLW's Konnan Show presented by Masked Republic's LuchaShop.com. Carlito talked for the first time about an after hours fight that took place with John Cena.

"I actually had a fight with [John] Cena. I forget where it was, but we got into a fight. A drunken fist fight. He told me I wasn't applying myself. He said I should be at a higher level. I didn't punch him because I'm not going to punch the face of the company. It was more like a drunken fight. I don't think we were out to hurt each other. I was just defending myself, but Cena, he's strong as hell."

"He jumped at me first. They ended up separating us about three times. I felt like he and I had always been close. I think he just wanted to see me do better. Cena is one of those guys that's a top guy, but he wants to see other guys. He doesn't try to hold guys down, he wants to see them come up."
 

Thought this was interesting. We know Cena's a nice guy so it's interesting to see some perspective into what he thinks about other talent, even if it ends in fights lol
Title: Re: Random WWE Discussion thread

I'm not surprised, people act like Cena is some egomaniac who doesn't want anyone to have any success but I doubt that is true. I guess that is just easy to assume with top talent though. I remember when Batista was really big that he used to back Christian and years later was really happy when Christian finally won the WHC.

– There is a possibility that Alberto Del Rio may need to be pulled from the No Way Out PPV due to a concussion he sustained last week.

If this is so Alberto is really starting to become injury prone. whats up with the mexican wrestlers getting injured ? Rey is always getting injured, Sin Cara was in WWE for 6 months before he was injured. and if this injury is legit then it will be del rio's 2nd injury in within the last year.

1 good thing could come of this if they do the right thing and PUT ZIGGLER IN THE WORLD TITLE SCENE!

I wouldn't say this makes him injury prone, he'll likely be back in a couple days, just a knock he got to the head which would effect anyone tbh. Saying that, I have more drive to see Ziggler in this match then Del Rio, feels like he's had more build anyway; I can't remember much between Del Rio and Sheamus, pretty anonymous feud really.

Former WWE Champion John "Bradshaw" Layfield called into yesterday's Sam Roberts Show, during which he spoke on a number of topics including mountain climbing, his thoughts on Chris Jericho's suspension, and bullying in WWE.

Additionally, JBL confirmed rumors that he will be appearing on WWE TV again in the future by saying the following:

"I'm gonna do something on WWE television. We've already agreed. I have no idea what. They don't even know what...When I started doing this Seven Summits they said it's very important for you to appear on WWE television, because that helps give a push to what you're doing with the Seven Summits.

And I have no idea if that's just gonna be me being backstage, me being in character, it obviously won't be a full-time deal, I'm climbing 7 mountains...so I don't want to give people the impression I'm coming back in any full-time role, but I'll be on TV."

I'm getting the impression this is WWE's plan, especially with the Bella's now gone and Kelly Kelly reportedly leaving. Probably a good thing the divas are getting updated, its been a drag for a number of years but they've now got some talent in there with AJ, Kharma (when she returns), Layla, Beth and Natalya. Dare I say it, the divas have been consistently a good part of the show since Layla's return.

Sonnen is friends with CM Punk, who nearly escorted Sonnen to the ring for a previous bout before WWE said no to it. Sonnen also has been working with Steve Austin on strength and conditioning training.

Although he was "fired" from his position as Raw and Smackdown GM, John Laurinaitis continues to work dark matches at WWE TV tapings, as he generally comes out after the match is over to attack John Cena, only to then receive an AA after unsuccessfully attempting a chair shot.

- For the past ten years, video content from WWE's "Attitude Era" (1998–2002) has been edited due to a lawsuit with the World Wide Fund for Nature over the WWF initials. All WWF "scratch" logos and references to the initials had to be blurred or edited out. This directive has now changed, at least in part.

In regards to the former "scratch" logo appearing unaltered in video packages on Monday's Raw, multiple sources within the company say use of the symbol in flashback sequences is now permitted, so brief clips no longer have to be blurred. However, it is unclear whether the permission extends to complete matches and other archival footage. One source believes the company wants to develop a strategy to cease the logo blurring before the launch of the WWE Network.

That's all well and good. now i just wish they wouldn't change passed entrance themes on their DVD's. Like Dusty Rhodes coming out to something Generic instead of the good old "American Dream" Theme song. So annoying.

Many have been speculating that Chris Jericho will once again be done with the WWE after next month's SummerSlam PPV. To add even further speculation, Chris Jericho's band Fozzy has been officially confirmed for the upcoming Uproar Festival tour between August 17th and September 30th, which also features the likes of Shinedown, Godsmack and more!

It is worth noting that Fozzy has been excluded from the tour on August 19th, the date of this year's SummerSlam PPV, but is still scheduled to perform on September 16th, the night of WWE Night of Champions.

Interestingly enough, the Festival is not scheduled for a single show on a Monday (presumably for travel reasons), meaning that Jericho could potentially attend each Monday Night Raw and fly to the location of the next day's show immediately after.

No surprise there.

International wrestling star Dalip Singh — who goes by the ring name The Great Khali — successfully underwent surgery at UPMC Presbyterian to remove a tumor from his pituitary gland, according to hospital officials.

Singh, 39, made his debut with World Wrestling Entertainment in 2006 and became the World Heavyweight Champion in 2007. He has appeared in a number of TV shows and feature films.

The tumor removed during a four-hour procedure on Wednesday led to the growth spurt that caused Singh to achieve a height of 7 feet, 1 inch and a weight of 347 pounds, according to UPMC neurosurgeon Dr. Joseph Maroon, who led the surgical team.

Maroon said Thursday the tumor causes a condition called acromegaly, which can be fatal if left untreated. The pituitary gland is a pea-sized organ at the base of the brain.

The wrestler Andre the Giant, who was 7-feet 4-inches tall and weighed nearly 500 pounds, was afflicted by the same condition. He died in 1993 of congestive heart failure at 46.

“As part of our ongoing wellness evaluation, we are happy that The Great Khali had successful pituitary surgery, and we look forward to him returning to the ring in the near future,” said Adam Hopkins, a spokesman for WWE, based in Stamford, Conn.

Singh declined to be interviewed because he is having difficulty speaking as a result of the surgical packing placed in his nasal cavity during surgery, said Susan Manko, a hospital spokeswoman.

Singh is expected to recover within three months, said Maroon, who has been the Pittsburgh Steelers’ neurosurgeon since 1977 and was named WWE’s medical director in 2008.

Maroon’s surgical team, which included Dr. Paul Gardner and Dr. Carl Snyderman, used a minimally invasive procedure pioneered at UPMC in which the tumor was removed through Singh’s nostril.

Manko said the wrestler is expected to be released over the weekend.

Singh is a native of Punjabi, India, where he worked as a laborer and as a police officer, according to postings he made on social networking sites.

Before signing with WWE, Singh wrestled for All Pro Wrestling and with New Japan Pro Wrestling.

Whatever you think about him in WWE, hope he gets better, obviously.

I feel like this already happened. Either way, sounds more like Triple H's doing than him being "burned out". So long as he stays with the company and can eventually come on TV, I'm okay with whatever he does

HHH fingerprints are all over FCW and it is starting to leak into WWE... A lot of the talent he has pulled from ROH and the Indies are not the "prototypical" WWE look guys or gals. The signing of Sara Del Rey is f'n huge for the future of the Women's division and if she gets to work matches with Nattie or Beth they will be special.

I think Johnny stepping away from this role is good. HHH who was once lauded as some buffoon who would sign big bulky guys is doing something to bring wrestling back to WWE.

- Tensai made a racial remark in his first Tout video post. Noting he was traveling with his personal chauffeur Sakamoto to Indianapolis—the site of tonight's SmackDown taping—following Raw, he remarks it's "very, very dangerous" to drive with a Japanese person. He then slaps Sakamoto as he's driving and orders him "to open his eyes."

Quote
- WWE issued the following statement in regards to the controversial Tout video that was posted earlier today by Tensai.

“While in character, Lord Tensai (Matt Bloom) clearly took his storyline too far and he will be reprimanded for his inappropriate comments.”

I just watched the video, it hardly seemed racist given that Sakamoto would have gone along with it in the first place, plus they were driving at night. Just seems really OTT, kind of like the AW remark (which was hilarious). At most it was daring, and its the kind of thing which would fly over most kids heads. I didn't even pick up on the undertones of it and probably wouldn't if they made such a big deal out of it. Reminds me of how pathetic Jericho's suspension was.

As reported earlier, John "Bradshaw" Layfield recently teased on his Twitter that he would be replacing Booker T on commentary on SmackDown. Layfield later admitted that he was kidding, but expressed interest in a return to commentary if the job were available. During a recent interview with Raj Giri of WrestlingINC.com, JBL discussed how interested he was in a return to the announce booth.

"I am interested," Layfield admitted. "The job has not been offered to me and I was just having fun with Michael Cole on Twitter. I think I said I was coming back. You know, I was having fun with Michael. I don't mean to mislead anyone, I'm not working, so to speak, on Twitter. [Laughs.] I was simply having fun. The job does appeal to me, yeah.

"I never thought the job would come open. There's only two jobs for color commentary in WWE and Jerry Lawler may be there for another 30 years and I hope he is. He's a great commentator. Booker moving to the general manager role opens up that job. But, that doesn't mean it's not filled and I don't know it. It could be filled and they may already have plans for it -- I don't know that. I haven't been offered the job. They haven't told me, 'Hey we want you to come work,' or anything. So, yeah, it does interest me and if they called, it certainly would be very tempting to do."

I wish they would just send him the job offer already. i think we all like JBL on commentary right?

- Dark matches before tonight's WWE NXT tapings in Winter Park, Florida saw Dean Ambrose defeat CJ Parker and Damien Sandow defeat Garrett Dylan.

- WWE Champion CM Punk did some commentary at tonight's NXT tapings. In a bonus match after the tapings, he faced WWE United States Champion Antonio Cesaro.They went to a No Contest when Kassius Ohno interfered and Seth Rollins made the save.

This led to Punk and Rollins vs. Ohno and Cesaro, an indy dream match. The match saw Punk and Rollins defeat the former Kings of Wrestling. The four celebrated together in the ring after the match. Their celebration was interrupted by John Cena, who announced he will be at the September 20th NXT tapings.

On Tout today, Justin Gabriel and Tyson Kidd posted a video calling themselves "International Airstrike." Kidd is from Canada, and Gabriel is from South Africa. Both guys are expected to get an extended look as a viable tag team in the near future. They got into a fight with other Tag Teams on Smackdown, and the current plan is to have some sort of Tag Team Turmoil match at Night of Champions.

Kind of a wordy team name but I prefer it when they try to give themselves a team identity so I'm all for it. Same for Tag Team Turmoil, I love those matches.

Both Kidd & Gabriel are two of the best and most underrated wrestlers in the WWE today. both guys are always having really good matches on NXT and Superstars. I know WWE pushes smaller guys but i still feel like if these two weren't so small they would be getting more of a push.

Love the Tag team turmoil matches too. K-Truth vs PTP vs Uso's vs IAS vs Colons vs Curtis & Mcgillicutty. Maybe Hunico & Camacho throw in there too and they could always bring back Hawkins & Reks as a team to make it an even 8 even though i would rather them not.

- Ric Flair and his wife Jacqueline Beems are currently going through a divorce. This would be Flair's fourth. There has been talk of replacing Flair with Vickie Guerrero as Dolph Ziggler's mouthpiece but there's no word yet on how serious those talks are. Flair would be legally able to work for WWE on September 10th.


Dolph Ziggler doesn't need a "mouthpiece" He's good enough on the IC as is and is better than Flair on the mic these days. Flair makes no sense when he talks anymore. I would like to see Flair be his manager though. Dolph & Vickie has kind of ran it's course.

Whilst Flair is obviously a big name to have in your corner, I kind of feel like this would be a waste. Vickie's having a resurgence with her character and doing a good job of it, just let her get on with the job and staple herself as a top class manager/scout; like they have been building.

If Flair's going to go into management, give him another superstar that is either being held back despite having the in ring talent, like Swagger or McIntyre, or someone that is completely unknown.
Title: Re: Random WWE Discussion thread
Post by: Adampro123 on 30 August 2012, 11:42:56 AM
They haven't really been building Vickie as a scout. they started to before they remembered they like burying Jack Swagger. I think Vickie can go do something else and get by just fine. Or if Ziggler did leave Vickie for Flair Vickie could manage someone else and him feud with Ziggler.

I don't see how Vickie's resurging, I find her character stale. It's the same schtick she's been pulling for years. "Excuse me" followed by some unintelligible screeching, rinse, repeat. I think if Flair goes into managing he needs to manage a big name, someone who you'd believe Flair would spend his time managing, not some nobody, that's not flair.

I'll agree that for most of the last year she has just come out and said excuse me. However,  for the last couple months she's been coming out and cutting some decent original promos, the one she cut on RAW the other day after the Layla match was pretty good. Yeah she's still the same character, but she's resurged her heat and she's really good at doing that. I just think how much more can Flair push Ziggler to another level? Vickie does a good enough job imo and I would find it annoying to just have Flair come in and take Vickie's position.

I'd rather have Flair bring in a new talent that will have a future, he did it with Evolution, and having Flair in anyone's corner will surely secure their position anyway. Its not like the WWE hasn't got an abundance of talent to bring up, Seth Rollins and Kassius Ohno are both in FCW, I'm sure there are other talents down there who are talented enough to bring up. There's that guy that finished second in Tough Enough or maybe they could bring Andy back if he's sorted himself out, Ted DiBiase is out from injury but looked to be going places, he could have a new character and Flair to support him.

You'll notice how little his gimmick actually changed over the 4 years.  At least when Kurt Angle had a similar gimmick he went from the goody two shoes heel to the patriotic baby face to the totally snapped crazy person heel.  The crowd ate it up every time.  Swagger hasn't shown the ability to adapt, nor have the same ring skills as Angle with a similar moveset.  There's not much more you can do with him at this point, heck he's already had Vickie Guerrero as his mouthpiece.

I don't care what anyone says, his feud with Christian on ECW is in the top 5 best feuds in the past 5-6 years in WWE imo. I enjoyed his WHC title reign as well, the thing is he isn't going to be great at serious promos, but it shouldn't hold him back and he has a charisma to him which is completely overlooked imo.  The guy has bags of potential but is completely misused, he never wins, its impossible to take him seriously even considering his size, ability in the ring, and having Vickie as his manager if he is expected to lose every time he goes out there.

The thing is, I don't expect him to be as good as Kurt Angle, who is without a doubt one of the best ever and a consistent headline main event. However, I think he should be at the Benoit or Jericho level where he can drift from main event matches to mid card US title matches, he has the potential to be a guy like that but its impossible to make him that kind of staple threat if he never wins. I don't think his promos should hold him back as much as they do either, he has a corny delivery, but it gives them some character which is a million times better then a lot of the wooden and forced promos we usually see.

It's not that he doesn't have the ability to adapt, it's that he hasn't been given the opportunity to adapt. He always adds little things to his persona, at one point he was doing push-ups in his entrance, there was the soaring eagle, Vickie, etc. But they never do anything with it. Swagger can be awesome, it's just another case of WWE wasting talent.

Yeah I'm sure if Swagger got as many wins as Sin Cara it would be a completely different story.

I think the WWE missed a huge opportunity to turn Swagger face after wrestlemania a couple of years ago when Cole was bad mouthing him and even slapped him in the ring. the crowed was wanting him to turn face so bad at that point and it would have been huige for him if he just started beating the shit outta cole...instead he just became coles bitcfor the rest of the month and teamed with him and i think he lost to king & JR.

TMZ is reporting Shelly Ehler took her 8-year-old son to a WWE live event and he left in tears.

Her son had a sign for Sheamus, who was taking on Alberto Del Rio that night, and Del Rio ripped his sign.

Ehler said her son was instantly terrified of Del Rio's actions and she called Del Rio a bully.

Del Rio would go on to mock her son crying.

Ehler wrote an angry letter to WWE officials and says, '"Take signs from adults NOT KIDS! My son was bullied by your superstars and it is not okay."

Ehler goes on to say Ricardo Rodriguez mocked her on Twitter but Sheamus offered to send her son a signed photo and meet him next time he's in town.

Has anyone noticed how heels seem to be doing this more lately? More often than not the kids seem to like it though. I remember last week on SD the same kid got his signed ripped by D-Bry then CM Punk and he loved it lol

It was reported on TMZ that Shelly Ehler was upset at Alberto Del Rio for ripping her 8-year-old's sign up and then mocking her son crying.

I spoke to Ehler in an exclusive interview recorded for Wrestling Reality on TribLIVE Radio and she revealed TNA President Dixie Carter personally called her today.

Carter said she was sad to read about her WWE experience and offered Ehler's family VIP passes to Bound For Glory in Phoenix, AZ.

Ehler said Carter explained TNA's wrestlers would never act that way. She encouraged them to come meet Hulk Hogan and all the wrestlers on behalf of TNA.

The full 12 minute conversation between Ehler and I will be released tomorrow. During the interview the following topics are covered...

- Her detailed account of the incident with Alberto Del Rio

- Sheamus reaching out to her through Direct Message on Twitter

- She asks me if I feel Del Rio acted like a bully

- If she'll ever bring her son back to a WWE show

- How TMZ got a hold of the story

- Dixie Carter's conversation with her

True, but pops like that were still pretty common in the Attitude Era, so I wouldn't say it was the biggest in WWE history.

Rikishi gets a HUGE pop on RAW is WAR! (June 26 '00) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nORokKyPNK0#)

Huge pop for Diamond Dallas Page (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xiva5s80vzM#)

Evan Bourne Provides Injury Update & Gives More Bad News To His Fans

Quote
Evan Bourne, who has been out over the last year with injuries, tweeted and provided an update on his status:
airbourne
@findevanIf you didn't know, the Royal Rumble is my personal favorite PPV/match! But no matter how hard I train, my foot will not be ring ready by RR

That sucks! Thought I would rather see him back when he is healthy then him rushing back and causing more injury.

Well since all kinds of stuff will be happening around mania leading to it i think a post mania return may be the best for him. hopefully he doesn't get injured anymore.

Fuck that Bray Wyatt is returning soon.

I like both of those guys. Hawkins should just return after mania and get repackaged.

WWE.com: Doink the Clown passes away (http://www.wwe.com/inside/doink-the-clown-passes-26127796)

Sad news. :(

WWE.com: Ricardo Rodriguez suspended for 30 days (http://www.wwe.com/inside/ricardo-rodriguez-suspended-26128277)

I'm surprised by this, I wouldn't have expected him to do something to get suspended.
