    You can't promote Twitter non-stop, run a billion wrestling documentaries on your network, show Vince and HHH shoot interviews ON YOUR NETWORK, give Punk the freedom to say whatever he wanted in 2011 etc etc etc.. and then expect the audience to act like it's 1992 when you want to push Reigns. It's on them. It's not the crowds fault.

    Blaming the crowds is such a cop out. If the fans aren't doing what the WWE wants it's their own damn fault.

    So many reaction GIF's I would love to post in response to this, but I'm not "that guy", so I'll just ask - are you serious? I'll be kind and go with:

    And another fucking thing...Piranesi said this on one of these goddamn pages: Fuck. Yes. Give me the motherfucking Bikertaker. Fuck the deadman. Fuck the corporate ministry Undertaker. I want Bray to think he's getting the man who got beat by Brock Lesnar last year, only to get a motorcycle riding son of a bitch who is gonna throw some motherfucking hambones and drop punk cards on motherfuckers. I want American Badass or Rollin', as god awful as those songs are, to blare in the arena. I want goddamn Booger Red to shock Bray. I want Taker to drop a punk card on Bray, asking him if he was expecting someone else. Yeah. I want the Undertaker to beat Bray at Wrestlemania, get on his motorcycle, ride it back to the stage, stop, hold a fist in the air, soak it all in, and the continue riding to the back.

    I think if they want to give people the room to like Reigns, but they don't want Bryan in the title picture, then give Bryan a compelling story of his own so people don't constantly mix up Roman's push with Bryan not getting to do something awesome they want to see. Give him something awesome to do! Christ, they kept Savage busy for years with stuff where he got to just be cool and exact vengeance and get cheered. Stop teasing people with Bryan's B+ show-the-world storyline and then pulling back at the last second and then expecting them to cheer whoever's left standing in that Daniel Bryan shaped spot. Separate them! Separate Bryan from the belt. Let him feud with someone awesome over something that he can make seem important, and then no one has any reason not to cheer the default babyface in the title feud.

    Let me take this moment to be a man and publicly apoligize to Gregg for the shit I've given him over the year plus. He was right, I was wrong. Wrestling is much more fun to watch when you sit back and ride along instead of getting constantly pissed off and indignant when things don't go your way. I'd like to thank the Bryan Zealots for helping me see Gregg's point, and since I've backed off being constantly pissed at the show, I've enjoyed it much more. This is 100% serious. A lot of you should lighten the fuck up.

    As a fan, here's the best and only way to summarize the show: I don't give a fuck about Wrestlemania.

    The only thing this thread has shown me is that Greggulator is a better cult leader than Bray Wyatt is.

    IF ROMAN REIGNS SAYS "I'm better than Austin. I'm better than Shawn Michaels. I'm better than..." -- I get why the audience boos. That's an arrogant statement. Even if he's a confidence face, if you like Austin better, you'll be mad at that. But if the audience is booing for the reasons you say they are -- That members of the audience are watching a heel cut a promo on his client's opponent, and are sitting there and saying: "This isn't Heyman saying this. This is Vince McMahon trying to ram Roman Reigns down our throats! He thinks Roman is that good and he's not! He's not ready yet! He was carried in The Shield! BOOOO!!!!" If it's as you all say, then we're at the point where wrestling fandom is the worst. Literally the worst. How is that line of thinking even remotely fun when you go watch a live theatrical performance? We're now at a point where thousands of people go to an arena to make these meta critical judgments about something they are watching unfold. Would you do that for movies? How is that even remotely fun or productive for life in any manner whatsoever? WWE live audiences are now filled with Comic Book Guys. It's the worst. It's sad because you're right, wrestling fandom is easily in the worst place ever. Not a lot of people know how to be good fans anymore. They think they are being manipulated by Vince and are too smart to be worked, so they're trying to rebel against what they are expected to do. They go to shows to be contrarian and boo the faces and cheer the heels, and they don't even realize they aren't doing anyone any favors, it's not helping the performers, the other fans or the creative team, the waters just get muddied and everyone gets a mixed reaction nowadays with half and half support from the crowd. It's just more fun to go with the flow, get in touch with your inner child, and feed into the acts while suspending your disbelief instead of stomping your feet when things don't go one specific way, and trying to sabotage the shows. Cheer the people you're supposed to cheer, and boo the heels, it is more fun. And I still love good heels too, but it's just more fun to get into the act especially at a live show! The kids in the audience will thank you. MAJOR Props to Raziel as well for manning up and trying a new approach to watching and enjoying it. I applaud you, and wish more people would really hear your message. I'm out of likes, but I owe you one.

    Jraq is a complete wrecking ball in this thread and I applaud him for it. It's really fucked when some people get upset at others for voicing their discontent with these shows. Raw isn't good. You could turn your brain off to the point where you're staring at the wall and drooling and doesn't make Raw better. It's still really shitty and the booking/writing is completely counterproductive. It's great some of you can do that, and better on you, but many of us want Vince and the writing staff to pull their head out of their ass and make this a watchable show and not something that is a chore or that you need to fast forward through.

    All I know is I don't want the people that would have made Zack Ryder a top guy making that choice. I don't want people that think Cena can't wrestle when he has had a great career in ring making that choice. Those people are the Daniel Bryan fans.

    Oh for the love of Christ. Yes, forget the WWE's terribly illogical writing - the live crowds are the real issue here. These last few posts read like what I'd imagine an internal WWE memo to sound like: "Don't worry guys, the problem isn't us. The problem is how the fans react to the show. Sincerely, Kevin Dunn."

    Bikertaker would have chokeslammed Heyman before he got two words into that. It's so goddamn simple. Calculus? Man, this is basic algebra. Heel manager + immediate asskicking _________________________________ = $$$$$$$ Enraged Brock Lesnar That's algebra, right? With X's and stuff?

    My favourite part was how the crowd HATED the idea of Reigns being mentioned with Austin and Rock, but then with Triple H it was just kinda like "eh, sure, whatever".

    Heyman's a disingenuous slimebag. He's trying to play a headgame with Reigns. "I think you can beat all of these guys but my client's the best. And you can't beat him." It's pretty easy to see that. Reigns was also giving him a good look of mistrust throughout it all. It's really not that hard to see that. Randy's playing a long con with Rollins, too. You don't see the RKO coming soon? Let it simmer for a week and then go for it. Make Rollins squirm before you do the inevitable.

    What Graves said was obtuse. How the hell is anyone going to get over with a 30-second joke match? He was inconsiderate of the RAW Divas who have to put up with this BS.

    New plan: Winner of battle royal vs Reigns for title in main event. Then instead of D-Bry winning the battle royal, Kane wins it.

    When indy wrestling goes bad... The guy in question landed on his head after a blown suplex, then that happened. Probably a concussion. (I wasn't there, but it was another show in my area.)

I don't want people that think Cena can't wrestle when he has had a great career in ring making that choice. Those people are the Daniel Bryan fans. That's bullshit. Ryder is awful and only the real wackos wanted him to be a top guy. Everyone in the building is a Bryan fan.

    I'd prefer if Vince and those evil writers just came up with stories that had a beginning, middle, and end and did that. And screw it. Marvel's not letting fans write their comic books. You mean stories like Brock defeats the streak, destroys all comers, gets dethroned at Wrestlemania by the young upstart Reigns? Reigns who was the muscle for the Hounds of Justice,a group so powerful they only were stopped by themselves. Reigns who was immediately in the title picture, beat cleanly a former WWE WHC at a main PPV, won the Rumble which he barely lost last year, fought the man who never lost the title to retain his shot at dethroning the Beast at Wrestlemania? The main event clearly has a story that was built up. The only blank spot is the brief time Reigns was injured and no one knew how to script promos for him.

    Greg just said he wants there to be better writing. I want there to be better writing, Raziel, Burgundy, mco, FSW, We all want WWE to be the best because we all love wrestling. But we are going about this very differently, some of us are using constructive criticism and accentuating the positives and going with the story....and then there is what a lot of people here do HATE HATE HATE! It's bitchin and moaning constantly week after week with no real solution other than trying to ruin the enjoyment for the people who love WWE and convince us that everything sucks. If it sucks then leave, you are free to go find what you love. But if you're gonna be here with us every week, learn to love it and go with the con! Maybe follow your own advice and just let people react to the show how they want to? There's a segment of posters here who get more upset with people not liking the show, than the actual show itself being bad. That's so weird to me.

    Heyman's promo was the wrestling equivalent of Marc Antony 'but Brutus is an honorable man' speech from Julius Caesar. The problem was that speech was designed to get Brutus heel heat, while this should've been designed to get Reigns a babyface reaction. I did laugh at the crowds righteous indignation at Roman being compared to Bruno. 'How dare he say Reigns is better than some dude I've literally never seen wrestle!' All that being said, when Reigns told Heyman to stand right here, I thought he was going to destroy him, and they segment was saved. He did not.

    i am genuinely impressed how much terrible logic people can find in the most self-defeating wrestling booking I may have ever seen. Everyone on this roster continues to be misused, over and over and continue to look worse and worse every week.

    "Sooo.. again, who is it helping? Did this promo "make Roman look strong"? Did it get him anymore support from the crowd? Did it make you more eager to see the match? What exactly did this promo accomplish for you?" It accomplished getting Roman his first ever what chants.

    Planning The Wedding The Church: My Father can't make it to the wedding. Janice was very upset with this as she has not met my Dad face to face. Us being in Toledo and Dad still being in NYC makes it hard, especially since dad is almost 80 and doesn't like leaving the city unless it is to go to his house in CT or Florida. To make up for this Dad has agreed to pay for the rental of the church we are using. That is $700 we do not need to spend. The Caterer: Janice's mother's best friend in a caterer and has agreed to do this wedding for us off the cuff. One less thing to pay for The Wedding Photographer: My friend is a professional photographer. When i told him I was getting married and wanted to hire him he refuse. He refused by saying he refused to be paid for it, that he never does weddings but I am the exception! One less thing to pay for The Wedding DJ: Another friend, yet another person who doesn't want to be paid. Yet another thing we do not have to pay for The Wedding Cake: The trend continues. My friend from the SCA is an insanely great baker. She does Ace of Cakes level stuff. When I told her Janice and I were getting married (she was the first to find out) she volunteered to do the wedding cake, the groom's cake and bake various and sundry goodies for the bachelor party and bridal shower. And again, one less thing to pay for! In summation all I've paid for is my suit and Janice's wedding dress. There are still things we need to pay for but they are minor. I'm paying less than $500 for this event because I have amazing friends. Did I mention DVDVR's Zac Fu is performing the ceremony? I'd gladly put myself further in debt to give Janice the wedding she deserves. I'm just glad I don't have to. James
