  1. He was too good at what he was doing and got too much attention from the wrong writers or Vince and got turned into a goofball character. Consiracy R-Truth was awesome but then he became a joke with an imaginary friend, they de-clawed him and replaced the transgressive part of his character with sillyness.

  6. I believe I agree with that. Also thought they dropped the ball on Miz&R-Truth: Lead Pipe Terrorists. That Hell in a Cell ending was phenomenal. Only time Miz looked legit, with the lead pipe massacre on everyone while the cell is closed. Plus JR and Booker going nuts. "We need street justice"

  7. I really don't think I've enjoyed wrestling this much since I started watching ECW in 1994-95. This has been an absolutely fantastic few weeks to watch professional wrestling. There are so many great things unfolding.I loved the overall storyline of the night so incredibly much. The big story is still Daniel Bryan's attempt to get back his rightfully won title despite the corporate machine backing the already very capable Randy Orton. But the main focus of the night was on how HHH's manipulation of his power in order to put the belt on his preferred choice is affecting a lot of other lives. And the main person it's hurting is The Big Show -- the largest guy on the roster driven to tears because of how the smallest superstar of them all is being treated and he can't put the fears of his own career aside to do anything about it. It could be a red herring. But I don't want it to be. I want The Show to find a way to man up and beat the hell out of some dudes. I think Show's acting job tonight was on par with Eddie's heel turn against Rey. He said so much while only saying a few things all night. His facial expressions, his tending to The Miz, him leading the cheers for Bryan great and led up to the big moment -- Show ready to do something but HHH putting him in his place and Show feeling like he has no choice but to obey. He's been through these rodeos before. And his reluctance to help ends with The Shield and Randy beating up the one guy who truly does not care anymore, walking him around like a trophy pelt, and humiliating him in revenge for what he did to a car.Bryan is the star of stars now. The way he connects with the live audience is Austin '96 or so. I don't know (or care) if it translates to television eyeballs but he's so great. But making Smackdown about the other players -- that's how you use Smackdown. Raw and PPVs are where the story is told. Smackdown is there to fill in the details.Other stuff:* HHH remains on fire as THE KING DICK HEEL of all-time. What an awful person. His comeuppance will be epic and the best.* I hated Randy Orton for the past few years. He was a total snooze. Where the hell did all this come from? What a great, great, great jerk. I loved so many things in his match -- his nasty headbutts, a backdrop on the ring rail, his constant taunting and gloating. I don't think he's been this good since his stuff with Foley all those years ago.* I love that they're using the overarching story to really get some face burn for Miz and Dolph. Those guys were floundering and now they actually have some momentum again. The Miz is capable enough in the ring. He showed fire and guts and concern (when SIERRA HOTEL played) and more than held his own in the story of the match. He's good but a hair below Randy.* Dolph's pretty perfect for these 3-on-1 matches. The guy sells like no other. He wrestles smart -- as in he's a smart person who wrestles and knows how to try and steal a win. Reigns' spear on him was fantastic. I also love how Ambrose runs his mouth so much in the ring yet constantly takes beatings. Great subtle touch.* This is the best possible way to use Ryback. He's very good wrestling as this character. He doesn't have to do more than he's capable of -- use his strength spots, sell when you get hit with moves and talk trash when you can. Using him in this role is going to be really effective, I think. I also love how this got set up with Vicki claiming Bryan bullied four people at once.* Heyman was Heyman. More top-end stuff. I loved him blaming the fans for what he did to CM Punk -- that's a true heel right there.* I really wish (and hope) they give Ricardo a Virgil push against ADR. It's hard, though, to tell that underdog story because of Daniel Bryan right now, which is the best underdog story in wrestling in a long, long time.* The Wyatt Family is my favorite gimmick in ages. But they're in a holding pattern right now because of the numbers game. They're stuck in that there's nothing interesting for them to do except squash crappy tag teams. They're not ready to be the unlikely heroes to save Daniel Bryan and take on The Shield. There's no babyface/tag team they can get into some supernatural mind game with. They're good enough to get hot once there's a spot open. My main criticism of the Wyatt Family has been that the announcers haven't explained what Bray's talking about to the audience yet. Cole did that tonight by deciphering the Sister Abigail promo and using that to give a name to Bray's finisher.This has been really great and inspired stuff lately. Kudos, everyone.

  9. Jimmy Corrigan lost me at the point where they did a pause to call the audience stupid for not getting something that had been, to that point, inadequately explained. It just felt inordinately smug and totally threw me out of the story. It's solid enough for what it is, but I feel it's way overhyped all said.

  24. Video packages are something WWE has ALWAYS done well. Even when the rest of the company is shit. I was always impressed when they had a Wrestlemania highlights package play at the end of Wrestlemania. It still stuns me how they got the last match in there. "Running Up That Hill" is the best one they've ever done. They also had a short Johnny Cash one for that same match. Here's a personal favorite because of how it made Umaga look:

  30. Transformers: The Movie is great. And the Street Fighter movie sucked, but man did Raul Julia give it all he had. That's an interesting point. The topic didn't say "worst movies", it said "worst roles". And Raul was damn good as Bison. Even though everything around him was utter dogshit. And I vote Big McLargehuge gets the banhammer for that Transformers comment. Bah weep gragnah weep nini bong!
