Re: Official WWE Thread

Mojo/Hawkins: Better than I expected. I like Mojo more than most. Becky/Mickie: Very good stuff. Leaves a lot on the bone for more. Almost a showcase for Mickie. Handicap Match: Um...bad? Yeah let's go with bad. Tag Team Turmoil: This was fine. Alpha should've come in much earlier if not first. Not ...

Re: Official WWE Thread

So I'm thinking WWE needs to really think about dropping Peter Rosenberg. This tweet last night during the game seems pretty racist. I don't know how to make a tweet appear here but I copied the tweet: "Man what a crazy match up this game is with the country in the place it's in... the cultural home...

Re: WWE Royal Rumble 2017 - January 29, 2017

Six-Woman Tag: I'm still holding out for the women's Elimination Chamber. They just can't do Naomi/Alexa on 3 weeks notice. Alexa/Naomi would be the bottom program on either brand. Also, these poor women looked really disappointed. They were looking at big bonus checks for being on the main card. Th...

Re: WWE Roadblock 2016 (PPV) - December 18, 2016

I think a lot of it has to with WWE wanting to control the narrative for every second of the show. They play with the crowd volume so much that I think more and more unless the crowd is frenetic and doing what they want, WWE don't want the crowd to be heard.

Re: VOW Flagship: Wrestle Kingdom 11, Roadblock: End of the Line & more!

I've got a theory with NJPW shows in the States. The first weekend of the G1 seems to match up with the big Comic-Con in San Diego. Flights into San Diego from Tokyo aren't a whole lot more than flying into LAX. Even if you wanted to fly into LAX, San Diego is what, a 2 hour bus ride down? On top of...

Re: WWE Roadblock 2016 (PPV) - December 18, 2016

Tickets for Sunday's Roadblock End of the Line show in Pittsburgh are being offered 2-for-1. That doesn't sound like a good sign. As I stated other places, I first saw this offer on their Facebook on Black Friday. This show must be in DEEP trouble. According to their website you almost have free ch...

Jeff Hawkins wrote:Really liked the handling of Becky post-match
Putting the immediate post-match and the YouTube video together, it does come off as "I so stunned, I'll do anything to get the belt back". Opening the door to a heel turn, just slightly.

Re: WWE NXT 2016

Personal thoughts and insight on people I'm familiar with: Pete Dunne- I find him underwhelming. His gimmick is he's "The Bruiserweight" and wrestles strong style. Oh, and he likes to dramatically take his mouth-guard out and bite people, usually their fingers. Toni Storm- Literally just started loo...

Re: VOW Flagship: Sasha Banks/Charlotte Hell in a Cell, Dragon Gate & Questions!

Good show guys. I don't really care what goes on last at Hell in a Cell, but lately I've worked myself into the idea that maybe the women should go on last. Sasha's in her hometown and regardless of who wins, it seems really harsh to make someone follow that after the crowd has flipped out at Sasha ...

Re: Official WWE Thread: Post-WrestleMania 32

Watched the Hall & Nash interview not a lot of new stuff (to me) except: -Hall claims wrestling fundamentally only has 6 storylines, can't name 6 though -John Cena is the GOAT according to them -People don't have a case to sue for Network royalties since half the people at signing are kids who watch...

Re: Official WWE Thread: Post-WrestleMania 32

I mean...Miz...holy shit. That was AWESOME! Where was this a decade ago? SmackDown was great. Thank the lord Dolph didn't pin Styles. While I happy Carmella turned I fear very much Nikki is winning the Women's title now and Becky will be cast aside again. I'd much rather see Becky & Alexa feud over ...

Re: WWE Brand Split 2016

Look, from my stand point, I didn't see a lot of what I wanted. Neither show has a clearly defined focus. The only obvious storylines coming out are Roman/Rollins on RAW and Styles/Cena on SmackDown. If I had to pick a show I'm going to enjoy more...it probably be SmackDown. Between being a fan of A...

-Those are HORRENDOUS numbers for the "A" loop and Roman Reigns.

Re: Official WWE Thread: Post-WrestleMania 32

Really bad timing for the new Table for 3 to come out. Ric, Arn & Tully are great. But a day after Kevin Owens tweets about not being home for a month, then Arn goes blames injuries on the WWE having too many days off seems like shocking gap between what the powers that be think and what the talent ...
