    I think we all know the true highlight of the finish. I have a feeling this will replace the Krusty the Klown's "What the hell was that"

    So many people are mad because the good guy didn't win. And they say kayfabe is dead.

    The first HITC match ever ended with the demonic brother of a wrestling zombie debuting. And that character is still around today. Bray Wyatt showing up via some parlor trick to take out a man who has talked about wanting to go to hell isn't anything that different. Bray and Dean will have awesome promos. They also had a Smackdown match this year that was off-the-charts great. Wrestling's a soap opera. Goes from one story to the next.

    Is it too much to ask for the mods to do the same thing they promised to do if people said they were never going to watch again when Taker lost at mania? Aka ban them to help them keep their vow I was fine with the finish. Watch some DDT and get back to me you crybabies I also think a lot of you missed the point of the Wyatt promos. They were about breaking off Harper and Rowan, not changing anything about Bray. They even debuted his new solo horror insert at the end to replace the Derp

    God... I legitimately am starting to wonder if "overly positive guy" is just your gimmick.If it is (and I don't think it is), I much prefer it to the handful of overly negative cynics around.

    Literally nobody gives a shit why you or anyone else doesn't come here anymore. Stop stealing Rovert's gimmick.

    Let's just move on. I mean, hey, on the bright side, November means that we all get to rewatch old Survivor Series with Rick Rude teaming with Butch Reed or something, right?

    I was so disappointed when Rollins was in the cell and Dean was on top and Dean didn't even threaten to pee on him? Dean threatens to pee on librarians who don't have the Carl's Junior menu as a book on tape. And he has to somehow stream over a desk for that. This should have been easy.

    I'm just gonna fantasy book it in my head that homeless man Dean Ambrose broke into Bray Wyatt's shack and stole food from his fridge and now Bray wants vengeance because that pulled-pork sandwich was gonna be for dinner.

    God... I legitimately am starting to wonder if "overly positive guy" is just your gimmick. It's less "overly positive guy" and more "I hate the wrestling hate hive mind." There was plenty of stuff I didn't like on the show. I wish there was more heat in the tag team division. The Usos and The Dust Brothers are so awesome but the feud's a snooze. And I'm fine with "YOU COST US THE TITLES!" as an angle. But there's nothing there. The Bellas getting TV time is the worst. Sheamus/Miz stinks and I'm not much of a Miz-dow fan. You know why the "Hive Mind" hates it Gregg, because we don't love everything Creative does. You know why, because we spent 30, 40, 50 years watching as much of this crap as we can get ahold of, for decades. You know how much Creative watched... NONE. Its in the advert for the position, NO WRESTLING KNOWLEDGE PERFERRED. So when we see the only game in town continually screwing up crap that shit little Indy bookers in bumshit Indiana can book properly, its getting pretty rage inducing.

    They'd probably drop him into a go nowhere feud with Kane where they go out of their way to ignore the history to two have. Oh wait.

    Before anyone gets too excited over the prospect of a Bray/Ambrose feud, let's remember that Bray just isn't that good. Has everyone forgotten how badly the Jericho feud exposed him? After their disappointing matches, people were saying that Jericho was washed up. But then he went and had a really good match with Orton at NOC. So either Orton is a world-class carry artist, or it wasn't Jericho who was the problem. I really don't know what I'm supposed to be looking forward to besides more Ambrose prop comedy and a bunch of shitty overbooked matches.

    So, Cesaro is primed to be the next breakout babyface after WrestleMania. Now, he can't win a fall in a 2 out of 3 falls match. He's in elite company with the Bolsheviks and Young Stallions now.

    Man, I hope the day after the game the school releases a second statement condemning the name, and celebrating that they scammed Snyder for free tickets.

    JBL: "Careers have been defined by the Intercontinental Title!" Shoot comments that aren't supposed to be shoot comments, etc etc etc. Missed Paige/AJ but I thought it was a hell of a show save the wrong guys going over in the bookends. The lack of direction for Cesaro right now is so fucking depressing- they strapped the rocket onto his back after he slammed Show, and then pointed the rocket into a mountainside. As for the main, I like the idea of putting Bray into the mix but not with Dean- now you've got two guys who REALLY need to go over and get elevated, but one of them obviously won't. I think year from now, fans will look back at 2014 at the year of guys they refused to pull the trigger on at the right time. Cesaro, Ambrose, the Wyatts, Big E... the list goes on and on.

    All I could think was that if Orton was part of that double table fall he would somehow have managed to land on Michael Cole's keys, yelled "FUCK" and thrown them into the crowd.

    Yeah, but douchebag Seth gets to brag now about beating Rollins even though he was about to get his head stomped in on cinder blocks. And he and Orton are now in their power struggle as Rollins waits to pick off the remains of Lesnar and Cena. Chickenshit heel Rollins is really frigging great and awesome. But being a chickenshit only works if he steals wins. You can't really steal a win in a HITC match, so Bray coming back to launch that feud gives Rollins slimebag bragging rights and puts Bray and Ambrose together. Pretty easy to see why they did that.

    Wait wait wait. Are you seriously trying to tell us a 3 hour show isn't enough time to get over a midcard angle? This company 10 years ago not only could do that in a 2 hour show, they were doing it for two different brands!

    Tune-out triggers for me these days: IWC, hive mind, etc. Before I discovered the Internets, I knew that I liked Bret Hart and Randy Savage more than Hulk Hogan and Ultimate Warrior. I dug those flippy WCW light heavyweights like Liger, Pillman, and that Benoit fella. Those were my favorite guys to watch before I knew a damn thing about ratingz and buyratez and workratez.

    I actually think with the B-PPVs being worthless now that they're all on the Network, this is the time to actually try out some guys in those spots to see what happens. Cesaro was a popular, important part of the Elimination Chamber match this year. Now that he's done it in multi-man, would it hurt to give him a shot against Cena on a B-PPV and see how it goes? I feel this way about Dolph Ziggler, too. I don't like him, but the crowd loves him. I honestly think they are missing out on an interesting B-PPV main event by not running Lesnar/Ziggler champion vs. champion. A twelve-minute match where Ziggler dies a thousand times but hangs on as long as he can before finally getting F5'ed would do more for him than the IC title ever could. Then, the crowd believes in him when you float him into the upper mid-card or even a rare main event spot once you run up against the injury bug and need someone to fill a spot in a pinch.

    I guess I'm in the monority because I really liked the main event. I sat there thinking that in today's WWE, that was about the damnedest thing I've seen in some time. The finish came and despite the hokiness of the hologram, I enjoyed seeing Bray return. It made sense to me too. To make the most money off of Ambrose vs Rollins, you want to hold off on Ambrose winning until if really means something. And you can't keep those two feuding now until next year. There needs to be something else for Ambrose and Rollins to do. Ambrose vs Bray is perfectly acceptable.

    I always figured that after she types out each post her face automatically scrunches up like Rachel Dratch in those old Debbie Downer skits on SNL.

    At least people here stopped posting his tweets like we should all know about how anti-funny the guy is. Jesus Christ, cheer up and say something positive about somebody. I'm begging you. I see Big Fresh hasn't been reading the tens of Ebbie posts about the awesomeness of Bad News Barrett and the Bella Twins. I see Ebbie kinda like Slappy Squirrel from Animaniacs. She'll praise what she likes, but she has a short fuse when it comes to foolishness. It's an endearing type of crabbiness.

    This is absolutely true. I think Rusev is the best face in WWE right now, he gives no fucks and his only concern is about Lana's safety. He's like babyface Savage.

    That main event was something like the best and worst of the overbooked, Attitude-Era style WWE match. Except for Ambrose's facial expressions and yelling at Rollins (especially that somewhat-chilling "WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE TONIGHT") before the match even started, the whole thing felt less than organic. The beginning was obviously a Foley/Taker redux with a HBK-style double-bump, and Ambrose firing up off the stretcher. It worked for Ambrose getting a pop when he got off the stretcher and for the big pop when they finally got in the cell and the bell rang, but it all seemed somewhat contrived, and the lackey interference was so textbook. I don't even know how to rate it; even as I could tell exactly what they were going for when they were on top of the cell, I was still worried about someone taking a bad bump, so there was a weird sort of meta-tension there as I worried about another cage malfunction rather than worrying about the guy I was rooting for and whether he would win. I still am not sure what to think of that. Then the transition into Ambrose/Wyatt...that was less than thrilling on its own merit. The whole thing came off less like a hate-filled match where anything could happen, when it was all said and done, and more like a series of contrived spots that had an unsatisfying finish to a blood feud. I also think Cesaro/Ziggler was about ten more minutes away from being a potential MOTYC candidate. The whole thing was logical, with the chain wrestling leading into the arm work, which led to the final fall in particular. They actually struggled for holds in the first few minutes. The deadlift superplex was basically amazing. I just think the first fall was so poorly paced that it was a shame. Other than that, Rusev was really good tonight, the Bellas match was a nifty little match, and everything else was mediocre-to-terrible, especially Cena and Orton having a finisher kickout-fest where the first twenty minutes were pointless so the last six could be finisher finisher finisher finisher ad nauseam. I really hated it, actually.

    It's a challenge for people who said they're done watching the program to actually not watch the program. Very few have done this. I salute these efforts. Even if this is true, I know I'll be in the minority of people who actually enjoy watching wrestling and love talking about wrestling. I'm fine with my role. But I learned a long time ago to cut out things in my life I don't enjoy. I don't watch SNL anymore because I stopped liking it, for starters. There's so much old SNL I do love that I'd rather watch that. Others should stop watching stuff they hate, too. It's a more productive way to live.

    I appreciate the different perspectives on this board, but I've taken to reading far more than posting these days. I realize that I'm getting old and bitter and everything was better Back In The Day. As good as the in-ring product has been, I personally have trouble investing in people or storylines. There are definitely people I like, but I keep my expectations in check with regards to how far they'll go.

    Get your own gimmick. Also, those Steelers uniforms need to be burned. They can even choose not to let the players take them off. My lord they were ugly.

    The only part of the show that bugged me, honestly, was Orton raking Cena's face on the cage and him not bleeding. Not that I even want blood at all. I'm fine with their never, ever being another drop. But if you're not gonna bleed, just leave that spot out. Otherwise, Rusev's already the best WWE-produced foreign heel ever, right? EDIT: Also, since the post above me quoted it, I can never take the dude Jay's opinions seriously when he posts the divas pics like those for every show. Makes me feel like a total creep just scrolling past.
