  1. Has Money in the Bank been mentioned yet? This was a novel concept in 2005 but it's been done beyond death. All it does is devalue the belts beyond recognition because they never book the case holder as a viable threat, like ever. The viewer is always left thinking they aren't good enough to hold the belt and they don't deserve it. It was cool when Cena or RVD cashed in ahead of time because I could believe they deserved it if they won. The matches themselves are so old hat too, and hell, the concept of the ladder match needs to be reworked entirely. I miss when ladder matches told stories and didn't just serve as bump fests. They do these god damn things twice a year just for MITB and we've seen every bump there is to see. We've seen dives off the ladders, ladders getting torn in half, stacked ladders, and anything else you can think of. Just retire both concepts for at least a year and call me again.

    Thunderdome probably moving to Tropicana Field, so more screens.

    I wonder if they'll allow more fans in. I think Desantis lifted limits on occupancy at the arena owners discretion but of course, I don't expect Tropicana to allow anything close to full occupancy. But, knowing the WWE and Vince...

    Funny enough ICW is doing an iron man death match tonight?  Not sure I've ever seen one of them before and kudos in advance to both guys who will likely bleed buckets for 60 mins.  Oh and Meng is also on the card!

    Now, I want to see that more than Turning Point. Is it just Meng beating the shit out of geeks with barb wire for 60 minutes?

    Wrestlemania 12 soured me on the 60 minute iron man match forever, so yes.

    It also intrudes on/limits the rest of your card in a way that the 30 minute iron man match doesn't, so there's that to consider as well.

    You go away now for that opinion

    That match is still my favorite WWE match. I thought wrestling was still real for that show and I cried everytime Shawn was working underneath. I had a fricken' Bible out praying that he'd win during the match. That's emotion, baby.

  5. So, I was just paying attention to this show through the BOARD, and I thought I'd tune into the show at 10 to see what Underground was like, thinking it would be something different.  To no surprise, nothing looked different and the write-ups for the Underground shit sound terrible and lame.  My heart goes out to people who faithfully watch this shit every week.

  6. Why isn't Heath fighting Drew at Extreme Rules?  Honestly, as a former WWE supporter, I would consider watching the show if they had that program and just stuck to authentic storytelling.  Heath just wants one shot at the belt so that he can tell his kids he had the opportunity.  If he fails, he fails but he's proud.
