  1. I can't believe you guys are so down on Seamus as champion. We have 3 ready-made main event challengers; Ryback, Kalisto and an Uso.

  2. The Wyatt's are just hilarious at this point. That was a house show squash. I have to come to terms with the fact that I'm paying $10 a month for NXT and old Nitros. And the time I spend watching a wwe show every month is like the extra tax slapped on.

  3. That was very far from awful. Your review blows.

  4. Guys, being humiliated in a short title match by Sheamus us actually a great way to get over. Daniel Bryan proved that. So now all Roman has to do is have a year-long losing streak angle, be left at the alter by a woman who now becomes his boss, team up with Kane for months in comedy skits,and be buried by the announce team every week for the way he looks... ...and he's good to go.

  6. Xavier Woods looked like The Cat from Red Dwarf. That is literally all the discussion of the show I care to do. See you guys in the Raw thread tomorrow.

  7. The only good thing about this show was the TLC commercial where they had a 16 bit beat 'em up style video game.

  8. "Pay the Bills." Dean has figured out that in nearly every town there is a guy named Bill who sells leftover chicken grease chunks out of the back of a local Church's. There's two ways to pay him and Dean also figured out that "money is the easier one." Note: Thanks to Roman, last night was a "hard way chicken grease" night for Dean.

  9. I've mentioned this before, but I don't think I'd have a problem with the chants or the fans if the crowd wasn't so well lit and the camera didn't pan to some dude in a batman shirt with every new chant at the expense of the match. To me, it makes it seem like the NXT producers are saying the way to get on TV is to constantly chant no matter what the situation. Because of this, the fans have been conditioned to not actually react organically, but instead to expect a reward for being 'clever'. I don't think anyone doubts how committed the Full Sail crowd is to NXT. They very clearly love it. That being said, the way NXT and the crowd have been presented has created a crowd that now expects constant recognition. To me, this is a problem, and it will continue to hurt the overall presentation of NXT.

  10. No, Roman will come out and talk for 20 minutes. He'll talk about how he had the title won and lost it, but that's okay. Then he will make some bad jokes and talk the rest of the interview in catch phrases. Believe Dat!!!! Then he will wrestle a 18 minute match against the Big Show. Then we will all fall asleep.

  11. Charlotte/Paige made the show worthwhile, and was at least as good as Sasha/Bayley II. Beg your pardon?

  13. Xavier's hair was kind of nice. And Wade Barrett enjoying himself with New Day was cool.

  14. The only argument I'M making, is that we stop pretending that when the crowd does stuff like that, that it isn't about getting themselves over. They desperately want to be part of the show, and you can't tell me that the NXT crowd doesn't see themselves as being part of the show. I'll be the first to admit that they are generally a good crowd, but they have their moments where they are insufferable and detract from an otherwise good moment. Have we forgotten them doing the Peter Griffin gimmick when Bayley hurt her knee? When they do stuff like that, they are absolutely not engaged. As mentioned before though, they aren't even in the same stratosphere as post-Mania Raw crowds.

  15. Easily the best RAW in a month. Great main event. Easily the least boring Authority promo since I started watching again. I'm sure it's a coincidence it's the one where Triple H talked the least. Plus there was a dream sequence involving Torito, a cowboy hat, and a hamburger. Worst thing about the show was HEY IMAGINE IF FUCKING NEW DAY ACTUALLY WON A MATCH. Liked most everything else in some way. Good crowd too. Nashville is alright.

  19. Stupid. So why make Reigns champion in the first place? Why not have Cesaro upset him or have Reigns get screwed over in the semis or something? It takes away any real meaning it would have had as Reigns has already climbed the mountain and become champion. He's no longer on the rise. He's reached the top. Fucking stupid. I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around just how obtuse Vince and the rest of the writing staff is. We're going to push Roman to the moon, but because how the audience is reacting to him, we're going to audible into Rollins cashing in and winning the title. 7 months later... We still don't want fans to boo Roman when he wins the title, so we're going to have Sheamus win it and Roman will eventually win the title and will be cheered for it. They're worried about the fan response to him without even being aware of why that's happening. Look at why Brock is so goddamn over. Or even Ambrose. They're not doing cutesy shit. I posted a couple videos in the general wrestling thread of the Shield/Wyatts confrontation from 2013 and 2014. That's how you book Roman if you don't want to worry about the fans booing him. INSTEAD, they think the way to make the fans not boo him is to cut lame ass promos and make it look so blatantly obvious he's getting shoved down people's throats. Unless Roman takes the CM Punk route and develops a backbone and fuck you attitude, this shit isn't going to change.

  20. They could have at least explained that Dean was taking his post-match dump in an abandoned car in the woods somewhere, hence missing his boy's beat down. Come on WWE.com....where the fuck were you?

  22. I've long been of the opinion that Reigns as an antihero would totally work. Let him destroy anyone who's dumb enough to get in his way, whether they're face or heel. Let him go on a scorched earth crusade and force HHH to deal with the fallout.

  23. Exactly. Remember when the Shield were pissed and did a run-in on nearly every match on an episode of SD? Roman going ballistic, saying fuck this, and just kicking the shit out of everyone would help him so much and make the upcoming re-match with Sheamus so much more interesting... But no fucking way that happens.

  24. I'll join you in that minority. I have NEVER liked the concept. A title match should be almost "sacred." Taking focus off it for any reason devalues the top of the card in my opinion.

  25. I'm probably in the minority, but I'm tired of the whole MITB concept by now. It's been done a million times already and it's hard to stay focused on the champion knowing he could lose it at any random moment. Why should I care about X champion vs. X contender when a guy can run in with a briefcase at the end and change the whole thing?

  26. So, the new World champ is a guy that's been floundering in the midcard for months, got knocked out of the world title tournament early, and lost a match earlier in the night after being made fun of for being a lame white boy and abandoned by his (cooler, way more over) teammates. What's the opposite of momentum? Honestly, Sheamus is a fine transitional champion. He's a good worker, decent promo, and has enough history with other guys on the roster that it's easy to put together a few mini-programs that make sense before he drops the belt. If he'd come back strong, stayed strong, and put together a nice win streak for the past few weeks (the Del Rio model, we'll call it), him winning the bet would be perfectly acceptable.This method of booking MITB guys as directionless goofs on a losing streak who suddenly win the belt and bring their lack of credibility into the main event is just the worst.

  27. Taker is supposed to be a massive real estate mogul so I'd imagine he'd walk away fully. If we never get Sting v Taker can we at least get Real Estate Steve vs Real Estate Mark with IRS as special referree?

  33. Restricted Free Agent, they will match anything he is offered. Reason they didn't sign him in the offseason is to keep flexibility to make a run at Durant.

  35. Pat Riley is talking up GSW as a dynasty in the making. This brings to mind when people rolled their eyes a bit when Mark Jackson said the Dubs backcourt was the best ever. He wasn't wrong in retrospect. But that is also proof he is an a-time goof. That franchise with him was so crazy to the point assistant coaches were taping conversations. It also shows how having a good organization top-to-bottom is super important in the NBA. That has ways been the Spurs advantage. Now GSW has it but with better players. What a fucking nightmare for the NBA.

  36. Reigns was supposed to take the belt off Rollins tonight, according to rumors. I assume that would have accelerated the HHH-Rollins feud. Not sure how Sheamus would have fit into those plans. I don't even have anything against Sheamus. Good worker, can be funny at times. But dude is colder than a penguin's beak right now. I know ratings are in the dumps this time of year anyway, but yeesh!

  41. Besides the fight scenes, I liked this way more than Daredevil actually. Whoever said the back half of the season is lackluster, or whatever - fuck, I loved the last half of the season. That last episode is something, sets up a bunch of shit for the future. I liked this piece (from an article about easter eggs in the series) about the argument online about why people in the MCU wouldn't believe in mind control when Thor, Hulk, Loki, etc. are running around:
