    Elimination Chamber IX - 2/17/2019

    My favorite thing about the show was when the WWE gave the Elimination Chamber some promo time. It was pretty good on the mic, building anticipation and possibly even selling some Network subs. Kind of like a Jake the Snake promo, all confidence, dire predictions and growly menace. I wish the other anthropomorphic plunder of the PPV universe could be featured thusly: some Tables, a few Ladders, an eloquent Chair, comedy from the MITB belt and of course - the imperious imposing Cell That Holds Hell itself in all it's glory. End this primate bias and no need to worry about "Southern style rassling managers", Mr. McMahon - the next gen of talkers are right there and already copyrighted. - RAF

    WRESTLING ON THE INTERNET NOT FROM THE NOW

    WRESTLING ON THE INTERNET NOT FROM THE NOW

    So much genius in this video. I would rather watch a SD Jones or Tony Garea opener from the cheap seats than have ringside VIP for a Shane McMahon main event. I am both smart and weird. - RAF

    FEBRUARY 2019 WRESTLING DISCUSSION.

    Hey, I worked with a handful of those names. Aahh, memories... The standard for indy workers is so much incredibly higher now. Wrestling was so popular back then that every goof with a couple bucks was inspired to become a promoter & start a fed and put on a show, and innumerable sub-normals were inspired to believe that their love of wrestling was a substitution for dedication, athleticism, talent, intelligence and/or study, thusly stepping into the ring in county fairs, VA halls and armories (and backyards) everywhere. I loved it (in hindsight). - RAF

    Having a ginormous roster contributes to under-exposure of much talent, but at least now the WWE has learned to give people time off and that it will not affect the quality of the shows (and incidentally make the worked injuries more believable). - RAF

    Bryan and Balor (and also Backlund & (babyface) Michaels) are also physically smaller wrestlers who use smarts, techniques and heart to win, and thus underdogs. Why do you think Hogan wanted big monsters to work? As was stated, David versus Goliath is a timeless world-wide mythological archetype of conflict/combat/battle/competition. Simple. It is harder to book a giant face champ - the DvG scenario is limited. - RAF

    JANUARY 2019 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    So, the mistaken kayfabe (as opposed to the storyline kayfabe, which is itself a fictional version of a theatrical reality) of these hardcore fans is driving Mr. McMahon, HHH, the booking & writing committees to adjust angles, feuds and PPVs - nay WrestleMania itself! - to this minority's perceptions? This is some wild and wooly through the looking glass stuff indeed... - RAF p.s. - The exposure of the idea of "kayfabe" (more properly "kay fabe") into the mainstream (or at least the internet) has diluted its original usages, to my ear. In many places, I see the confusion of "kay fabe" for "working" - there is a difference between subtlety and obfuscation via misuse.

    I see what you are saying in the first couple of paragraphs, and agree we are living in a post-kayfabe world (or more technically, a new kind of self-delusional kayfabe) but you lost me by the end. Are you stating that the fans' perception of their favorites & villains is causing the addition of Charlotte into Lynch v. Rousey? Who is the "they" in the first sentence, last paragraph? - RAF

    ROYAL RUMBLE 2019 POST SHOW THREAD

    Pat Patterson was thee best finish guy EVER, and the Royal Rumble was his project. The classic ones are full of teases, set-ups for future feuds, continuing story-lines and unique spots, all from him. I know he retired for a while, and I heard he was consulted for a few big matches and recent RRs. It is possible to see his fingerprints on this woman's Rumble, with it's foreshadowing, internal logic and effect onto the rest of the card (and WM), but Mr. Patterson must have passed on helping with the men's Rumble, because that thing was banana. - RAF

    JANUARY 2019 WRESTLING GIF THREAD

    Thee greatest punch in a rassling match I ever saw (more for technique than emotion or story) was at a house show, Terry Taylor v. Diamond Dallas Page ("92, UIC Pavilion). DDP took a beating and was on one knee, and brought this fisticuff literally from the mat, through TT's chin and up to full extension to get back on top in the match. Taylor sold it like death and it was a great mildly heelish comeback. If you have ever read "How To Draw Comics The Marvel Way", it was that kind of exaggerated motion. It was a Kirby Punch! You could reallysee Page improve from match to match, esp. when he was in there with a pro like Taylor. - RAF
