  1. Personally I think you guys are way over-thinking the crowd thing. It has nothing to do with people cheering because they 'appreciate what they do' or fans are smarter. People cheer the wrestler that entertains them. When I was a young kid my favorite wrestlers were Great Muta, Sting, and Vader in WCW. Two were heels. I knew of course it wasn't real but there was no Internet to tell me who Muta was or how accomplished Vader was in Japan, I liked them because I found their matches entertaining. That's it. And its not a new thing the smart internet crowd invented and I don't think its a bad thin

  5. Once the kicking team touches it it's a dead ball. That's what I got. I think there's a rule quirk in there that the receiving team can try to advance it but cannot fumble it. Which seems idiotic but I think Aikman said it. Speaking of idiotic, Cam Heyward was fined 5k for writing Iron Head on his eye black in honor of his dad who died of cancer - you know, during Cancer Awareness month. So today....he has Iron Head written in his eye black. Fuck you, Goodell.

  11. Same here. I think the real problem with not letting guys "heel it up" is that it limits your options to protect a heel. For the most part, the WWE doesn't let guys heel it up too overtly. You don't see too many guys cheating, putting feet on ropes, trying to leave the ring, going for a chair, pulling the ref, etc. There aren't too many managers anymore and those that are around don't interfere in matches much (Lana). And there aren't a lot of stables or teams anymore. Taken together, that limits your options in a match. The options for most of the roster are heel pins babyface or babyf

  14. The NFL is at the point where the rules are so vague that the league can determine the outcome of games. Remember, wrestling is fake.

  16. Arguably, heels should not be entertaing enough for fans to want to cheer them.

  17. Well I think a major reason entertaining heels are being cheered more is due to a lack of good babyfaces. Sasha got booed plenty when she heeled on Bayley, but is anyone going to care if she attacks Charlotte or Paige on the main roster? There's no likeable entertaining faces to balance things. New Day has 10 times the personality of most of the people they go up against. They made Cena feel ancient when they were clowning him, and Cena was standing there like get off my lawn New Day. Of course these acts are going to be cheered over bland babyfaces.

  30. There is a lot to what you say, and a huge problem that's been created with everyone having their own "special" moves is that you have heels using high-end babyface offense which produces cheers. Exactly the opposite of the desired result. You also have too many guys that are ostensibly heels that really don't know how to work heel; Randy Orton gets ripped on a lot at this site, but I find Orton is one guy that can be counted on to always remember the little things to do in order to establish which mode he's working in. Jericho used to be pretty good at this, but he's devolved considerably ove

  36. Apparently he is just one hell of a nice old guy. A buddy of mine has a summer place up past Bemidji, MN and the Baron is his next door neighbor. He sets up a lemonade and sandwich stand with wrestling memorabilia and will just sit there and shoot the breeze with folk. My pal is the County Medical Examiner, I have to imagine that he and the Baron have some fascinating conversations.

  37. Wow, that's just offensive. If I were a wrestler, I could never work for a promoter who would send out a message like that. I mean, how am I supposed to believe you can run a competent promotion when your grammer is that atrocious?

  38. I'll make a statement about ratings here: Is it even possible to compare ratings now vs. even 10 years ago? The rise of internet streaming means that fewer people are watching TV period. RAW is a top 20 show both among 18-49 year olds and overall (http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2015/10/13/cable-weekly-top-25-the-walking-dead-is-no-1-for-oct-5-11-2015-ahs-hotel-opens-well/478339/) and they're getting beat mostly by sports and The Walking Dead. Could it be better? Yes, but there's no reason for WWE to panic yet and they likely won't change until the ratings really tank.
