  1. I loved Beefer as a kid but I can't see his career path being much different than how it ended up.  I can't picture Vince actually belting him, just a chase at Slaughter or something.  It's not like Brutus was so amazingly talented that he'd be able to draw.  Nowadays, he'd probably get one of the belts though, maybe.

  2. I noticed that Renee Young, Saxton, and Otunga are now the Main Event announce team.  For anyone who watches, who is the play-by-play guy?  Is that group any good at all?  it just seems like they threw all the third-wheel losers out there to call the show no one cares much about.  Or is everything just really silent with occasional really general observations about the matches?

  3. I'm not sure if this has been covered but how in the world is Roman the face when he beat up a defenseless senior citizen unprovoked?  Hell, Elias didn't even provoke him and he got beat up twice.  Then, Elias looked like a Giant geek putting down his guitar as Roman came out.

    In the WWE Universe, everyone is an.idiot.

  4. Styles was super overrated, IMHO.  He sounded great when Heyman was producing him, like in the original ECW and ONS 05 and 06 but when he announced anywhere else, he was just kinda bland.  Plus, sure he knew the move names in ECW but isn't there more to being a play-by-play guy then just knowing the moves.  Say what you want about Vince but he certainly knew how to put guys and stories over more than he ever called moves by their technical names.

  5. Lately, I've been thinking how Tony Schiavone should be in the WWE HOF, and I was wondering who you guys thought were the five greatest play-by-play (not color guys unless you want to list them too) guys in history

    My Top 5

    Jim Ross


    Tony Schiavone

    Mauro Ranallo

    Gordon Solie

    I haven't really seen a lot of matches where Gordon announced but I feel he should be on there, out of respect maybe.  Was he good or was he just a fan favorite?

    I am trying to figure out what I watched that keeps making Cultaolic videos show up in my recommendation list

    Yea, that's pretty much my situation.  I think I watched one shitty Whatculture video and now all I get is more videos like that in my feed, and then I continue to hate-watch some of them.  What is wrong with me?  To be fair, Wrestling with Wregret did have some cool videos on defunct promotions, that beneath all the shitty, obnoxious humor, had some good footage and basic info.  Who knew that the Warlord was in the AWF?

  7. My main problem with the WWE is that is seems way too rigid and scripted, so I'd like to see more emotion in the promos, etc.  Less usage of forced buzzwords and nicknames and catch phrases.  I get that this sort of thing is part of wrestling but not to the degree Vince has the made the WWE into.  I need to feel like this is some sort of competition and not just a bunch of actors.

    I think they should just encourage everyone to just go out and try to have the best match on the card, every show maybe.  Workrate won't sell nearly as many tickets as stories and characters but it certainly helps.

    I think it was much easier to differentiate a product from the WWE around 10 years ago but now it seems a little hard.  The WWE routinely puts out decent matches across all their major shows.  They also have the women's division more pronounced than ever.  I'm not sure there is too much they can do to completely differentiate themselves.  What is the opposite of WWE exactly?  Maybe they need Russo.
