    Bruce Prichard: "Well, he's actually quite short. People in the back called him Shorty. So, I figured we're on to something here. Short. His last name is Gable. So, G stands for Gable. Shorty. G. It makes perfect sense. It was a brilliant idea. He just didn't like it."

    Cool video featuring Cody, Brit Baker, The Bucks, and Scorpio Sky. Laying out who they are just using visuals. Directed by Nick Mondo. Displaying that AEW should lock him down exclusively.

    For what it's worth, we're 20 minutes into Raw and the words "Seth Rollins," "Bray Wyatt," and "The Fiend" have not been mentioned or even really alluded to.

    Gable running out, getting grabbed for a German suplex, and then doing a standing switch and launching Lesnar for a suplex would have gotten a huge reaction.

    Jericho scorched the earth and brought the fire with that promo and it was AWESOME. Say what you will about him being older and out of shape, but this mother fucker carries himself like a gigantic star and how anyone could say he’s the wrong dude to be the first world champion is insane. The average size of the wrestlers being smaller benefits Hagar since that dude looks like a beast standing next to the rest. But, and I’m sorry for not remembering who said it so I can credit you, he looks like the dude who is stoned out of his gord and desperately trying not to look so.

    Did he just block a fireball with a chair? That's some good rassling right there. - RAF

    There are fewer things I enjoy more than when WWE thinks they did something brilliant when they did the exact opposite and then they put it on Twitter looking for reactions. You get what you deserve.

    Seth looks like the world’s biggest dork lying there and looking over at the Fiend. And the rest of the time too. Huge dork.

    I have no idea why people in wrestling can't see Bischoff's real value isn't as an executive, it's as on air talent. He is really great as a sleazy smarmy heel and would be a great manager/mothpiece leading a heel stable.

    Vince/WWE of the last 10 years hasn't met an amazing talent he couldn't completely fuck up yet.

    The Austin Idol commercial for his wrestling school may well be the exact moment the universe crossed the Parody Inversion point.

    Knew it was going to happen. Hell, I can even get behind the idea of Cain vs Brock. But it still just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Couldn't Kofi have at least hit one move? Get Brock wobbly with Trouble in Paradise before he gets caught in the F5? I'm not against Brock being around. I think he should be. I'm just so fucking tired of him as the champion. I love Heyman but I can't hear anymore "THE REIGNING, DEFENDING UNDISPUTED...." interviews anymore. Just something, anything different and I'm on board. The show looks great and the presentation is great. But at the end of the day, it's still the same show. And that's more troubling then anything

    I dislike when I have a post I am proud of but it's almost the end of the month so here is something to chew on: I have been working on a succinct definition of professional wrestling for years, but this is my work-in-progress list of thee three necessary elements of a pro rasslin match --- A) worked moves B) predetermined finish C) presented to the audience as sports competition Without#1, you have a fixed MMA match. Without #2, it's gymnastics. No #3 it is a play. still pondering, RAF

    You guys are sleeping on Mr. T. The WWF (and wrestling in general) would be a very different place if he wasn't in the main event of WrestleMania.

    The cool thing about doing something good for maybe not 100% the right reasons is that something good still gets done.

    I kinda wanna see an NXT Japan promotion be done where every person on the roster comes out to the generic Orient Express music waving the Japanese flag, and every match finish is green mist/salt to the eyes, its either going to last a few weeks, or be so ironically bad it becomes inanely popular.

    They could tie in Madusa to the Kabuki Warriors by revealing that the green mist is actually old WCW cologne.

    Indeed. Wrestling is full of guys who are athletic and can do a lot of cool stuff, but then none of it is cool anymore. Pick and choose and know the roster and what they do and the situation and the story you are telling in the ring. Only one guy gets to do springboard, handspring, slingshot, rolling cutters. Only one guy gets to do the Canadian Destroyer(or zero guys...fuck that thing is played out) etc. A little more interest in psychology and pacing and less in getting a movez pop from the crowd would go a long way. Old man shouting at clouds over here.

    I think the long and the short of it is the most of WWE mainstream programming is just bad TV. The only people left watching it are those that love wrestling, and the cool stuff wrestlers do is it. If there was a show on tv with as many terrible story lines and fake characters with horribly scripted lines as Raw that wasn't pro wrestling it would be cancelled in two minutes because nobody would watch it.

    It occurs to me that one ironic effect of the ongoing death of kayfabe is that, in at least one respect, it makes pro wrestling MORE like real sports, not less. Real sports generally don't have competitors that are good guys or bad guys to the audience in general (though I'm sure there are notable exceptions); typically there are various competitors that different people like for various more or less arbitrary reasons, so that a player or team can be the hero to one part of the audience the villain to another. People get excited by storylines and rivalries, but they don't need them to have a clear good guy/bad guy dynamic. That can help, especially in combat sports, but it's not necessary. So, ironically, pro wrestling moving away from even pretending to be legit made the relationship between the performers and the audience more like what you find in real sports. The problem is that for this to work as mass entertainment, you need a large core of fans who just like the competition itself, and will happily watch it even when they're not all that invested in the outcome. And because most of what happens on a pro wrestling show is heavily stylized fake fighting with all kinds of goofy conventions, it's an extremely dorky thing to like. That severely limits how big that crucial core of fans can be. So pro wrestling is destined to be a thoroughly niche thing from now on (for this among other reasons everybody here already knows about).
