    SMACKDOWN LIVE TO FOX, OCTOBER 2019

    People act like WWE failing upward is a new thing. In the last decade how many stretches of good tv have they had? i give them major props on the business end and on the creative end for turning over the entire roster over the past few years and creating a glut of upper card talent. Yes, they don't know what to with the talent other than fill tv time but it's still impressive.
  2. I remember before Paige got the call up there were reports of WWEs hesitancy to bring her up because of her age out of fear the main roster would eat her up alive. It feel like she lived a lifetime in the past four years. Damn.

    I like the idea of a rising star tourney. Performers 25(?) or under who have not held a title in a major promotion.

    Crazier than that time the first Sin Cara filled up three slots in his fave five?
  6. Is it wrong to take Natalya's inability to throw a decent looking clothesline personally? C'mon.
  7. Could WWE remain successful without Vince and Co.? That would be the billion dollar plus question.
  8. Has anyone ever gone to one of the nxt developmental shows down in florida? Worth attending? What's the atmosphere like? How long do they run?

    Is it that fans are too smart or that fans have moved on from the traditional heel/face dynamic and the WWE refuses to acknowledge it? There are exceptions, but most of the time I have a hard time understanding the difference in motivations for a WWE face or heel.

    I look at the late 90s writers as my introduction to wrestling criticism. Before then I knew what I did and didn't like but never put any extra thought into it. A lot of the stuff doesn't hold up, but what wrestling writer really does from that era? Criticism is always evolving. What I find amusing is how in many ways everything comes full circle. How people went from loving a Hogan or a Goldberg or a Cena to spending a decade reviling them to turning the corner and learning to appreciate them all over again. In a lot of ways finding themselves exactly where they started.

    More or less. When I heard about the story I went down a Angel Amoroso rabbit hole . She was in an adult world at a very young age. Doing apartment wrestling in lingerie while just a kid. Flashing the ecw crowd in a match at 18. Not that it's a defense but she did look old for her age and why in the world would some 14 year old be on the road. Don't know if the allegations against Foley are true but it's hard to look at the facts and not conclude that she was used and abused by the boys. What a sad sad tale.

    I got two texts about this from my casual wrestling fan friends before 8 am. That's all you need to know.

    The Schiavone comeback has been pretty damn remarkable.
  14. And lets be honest. It's not like he committed a serious crime against wrestling. He was doing something silly in front of a few hundred people. I've spent the last decade watching Nattie have no idea how to setup the sharpshooter.
  15. This thread has devolved into a conversation about pizza toppings. Let that one sink in.
