  1. Brets repeated formula were offensive moves, and logically made sense and put over as so on commentary that he was setting his opponent up for the sharpshooter by working over the back.

    Sometimes they were cut off hope spots or were his undoing also.

    Flairs were always the same comedy spots. The flair flop, beg off, caught on the top rope, the chops being no sold, power guy hitting the press slam, the Irish whip into the buckle, the figure 4 being reversed etc.

    Made no sense when every guy knew how to beat Flair and after a certain point, often did

    how is anything I said creepy or illegal?  Slut shaming?  Christmas is coming ask for a dictionary . If she wasn't dating Cole she wouldn't be in the spot she's in  period. Half of the roster is better looking than her and more than half of the roster can cut a better promo and give a better match. I'm just asking to be proven wrong. Nobody has so far. I'm not looking to start any shit on here yet you people continue to say shit such as "get the fuck out" yet you can't disprove a thing I've said. 

    "Yeah but I'm justifiably creepy"

    nothing like that at all. But since you seem to have your head up her  why don't you name me 3 matches that she made better?  I'l wait for you.

    So what you're saying is that your constant creepy, borderline illegal slutshaming and doxxing of her wouldn't be as tolerable had she worked at least 3 matches you found acceptable?

    Get the fuck out.

  4. Last two seasons were a real chore to watch and I genuinely considered binning this along with the Walking Dead at the start of this season.

    So glad I didn't. Tremendous stuff all round.

  5. Seemingly every skit was based around how attractive she was, and not much else.

    It felt like they came to her with a list of ideas, and that was all she was prepared to do, so they repeated it in different ways without a hint of self deprecation or modesty along the way. 

  6. I'm not sure re: Shawn - both from a perspective that he produced some absolute stinkers ring psychology wise after his return (the entire series with Angle in 05 comes to mind) and his really sketchy selling. Also the over-dramatic over-selling formula he's produced in NXT subsequently.

    HHH is an interesting one.  -The whole "everything you just saw for 20 minutes has lead up to this moment of me swinging a sledgehammer at this guy" aspect is a big red mark, as is so many of his matches in the midst of blood feuds failing to bring the hate whatsoever (that never ending 3 stages of hell match with Shawn, the Jericho HIAC, the Orton main at Mania, some of the Punk matches). 

    For a guy that was supposed to be a cerebral assassin, there really wasn't anything particularly smart about him.

  7. I'm going to be unpopular and say Randy Orton.

    On a week to week basis he's the overexposed drizzling shits.

    On a big show, he delivers. His stuff makes sense. One of the few on the roster that doesn't work the same match every single time (at least in that context. Raw and SD a different story). His big moves still pop a reaction every time and they're well protected. He's put over everyone time and time again and he's always a threat.

    I think his match with AJ at Mania this year will age well. People sleep on it as it was in the middle of nearly 100 hrs of wrestling in 3 days across numerous promotions.

  8. Watching the go home show prior to Survivor Series 92.

    They really messed up the card in making Brets first defense as champion being maybe the 5th most important guy on the card.

    The tag match really overshadowed them and should have been a Survivor Series match.

    Either Savage/Perfect/Nasties vs. Flair/Razor/Money Inc or you go all out and throw Bret and Shawn into that one as well. 

  9. Frey would have signed him to a huge contract, as a regular recipient of the match of the night bonus award.

    Watts would have come in and tried to lower it, leading to him being repackaged as Schmozz Hart, Paul Heyman's childhood Jewish cartoonist friend from the Bronx, fast tracking Paul's racial discrimination lawsuit against WCW.

    E(Xtreme)CW occurs as it did but with Bret in the Douglas role, including Bret going back to Vince in 1995 as Dean Hart because Vince enjoys making fun of his real life tragedy/dead brother.

    I've decided that Luchasaurus should be champion now. Articulate + knowledgeable about history + woke + dinosaur = ratings and buys.

    This show wasn't very good. Jericho and Cody cut awesome promos, but the wrestling was kinda a mess and the Brandi/Kong thing is so much like the Dark Order thing that an EWR-style message indicating that the angles were too much alike should have popped up on the screen.

    Also, what the hell was up with the audio in this show? The first fifteen minutes were a mess, Janela's promo was super-quiet for the first half, and the commercials were all way louder than the show whenever it went to break.

    At least Moxley's open challenge gimmick seems to be getting dudes some shine. And the opener was so hot that I enjoyed it even though it's not my style of match. 

    Agree on the Luchasaurus comments and also the same sameness of it all.

    MJF ducking Cody followed by Jericho ducking Moxley.

    Nyla dominating followed by Kong being dominate. 

    Even the randomness of Jungle Boy and Statlander being thrown up as random challengers seemed to cancel each other out.

    Good Jericho and Rhodes promos.

    Moxley killing everyone is starting to feel like when WWE guys would turn up in TNA and immediately go over all the local talent.

  11. Yeah, if the Harts go to Crockett, then Stu Hart doesn't agree to work with Vince at that time either.

    You probably end up with Stampede continuing as an NWA territory - the guy I really want to come from this is Bad News Allen ending up in Crockett feuding with Dusty.

    Lamar Jackson is a completely different player though.  A big part of Cam's game was that he is so fucking massive.  He is the best short yardage weapon of all time, because trying to stop a man that big, strong, fast, and athletic from getting a yard or two is nearly impossible.  Cam also had elite arm talent, he can throw the ball a mile without really even stepping into the throw.  It's probably why he never developed into a great passer, his talent let him do outrageous shit with terrible technique.  Lamar Jackson's game is much more based on speed.  Lamar is the best athlete on the field every single week, and it's usually not that close.  He can just run away from everyone.  Lamar has good arm talent, but it isn't elite.  He doesn't have a wet noodle arm, but his arm isn't anything to write home about at all.

    I take your point on the discrepancy of the respective arms, but feel that peak Cam's biggest weapon was his rushing yards - which in hindsight was just what you said - a realisation that it took something ridiculous to stop someone that big from going where they wanted, and once that happened enough, he hasn't really presented as a threat on the rush for a couple of seasons (especially since the emergence of CMac also).

    Lamar has the potential to still be putting up absurd rushing numbers much longer than Cam did because he's too quick to be taking those hits as frequently, and will probably get far better protection for it too.

    That rushing yards record is going to get obliterated this year and it will be interesting to see what the shift will be in QBs trying to emulate that, in the same way that plenty of mid range shooters tried emulating Stef Curry.

    Cam Newton's legacy is going to be incredibly interesting to discuss.  He's totally unique player who was as good as any player in the league at his peak, but I don't think he'll be remembered that way.  

    Especially if what is essentially a better version of him in Lamar continues the way he is going also.

  14. I can't remember the last time a guy went from channel changer in one promotion to must see with me in another quite like Cody Rhodes has.

    Plenty have done the opposite, but his stuff in WWE was pretty much terrible throughout an entire decade. I find that baffling.

    Enjoyed the Dashing Cody Rhodes stuff. The Rhodes bros tag team. Legacy was cool for maybe a few months. I wanted more from Stardust but it didn't really go anywhere. Now he's pretty much the only guy capable of convincing or selling me on a blood feud.
