JUNE WRESTLING DISCUSSION

Recommended Posts

I always wondered if JoJo and Eva Marie had their deal directly with WWE or if E! had at least a portion of that. The fact that JoJo was not released today makes me wonder that even more.

She apparently has shown decent improvement behind the scenes in Florida.

Rey's contract probably pays for itself in action figures alone.   Plus they'll need him when they start filming LEPRICANO MEXICANOS, assuming Torito turns it down as too exploitive.

As a bonus for just extending his contract instead-of renewing, WWE doesn't have to pay him his downside because he's not currently injured, he's just refusing to work.  They get the best of both worlds - keeping Rey away from anyone else and not having to pay him!

JoJo is better in the ring than Eva Marie. Definitely more natural. The biggest things against her are her size and age.

Wasn't it posting a pic of Rey unmasked that finally got Matt Hardy future endeavored?

I maintain that Brodus could have kept his job if they had just given him my Suge Knight gimmick

I've got a picture with JTG from 2007...damn he's been around a while!

To be fair, JTG got a pretty good deal. 7 years of continued employment at a high salary without too many bumps and bruises.

Are you kidding me? He's my fucking hero!!!

Plus, he obviously inspired the Shield gimmick:

I don't know if anyone else suggested this, but they could go by the European Union. Of course since it's WWE, they'd eventually abbreviate it to the EU, but it'd still be awesome.

 

Not only has it been suggested, but it's an idea that has been around since Regal was in WCW in the late 90's. Possibly the most fantasy booked suggestion in IWC history outside of a Cena turn.

Does Magnus, Douglas Williams, and Rob Terry as the British Invasion count as TNA doing it first?  Would it make sense for Drew McIntyre to join Magnus and Bram (formerly Kenneth Cameron of the Ascension before being released after legal problems, for those who don't watch TNA)?  Would TNA doing it make you hate WWE appearing to copy them?

Why are people talking up JTG's length of employment so much? The man ain't got shit on Funaki who made it to twelve years.

Funaki managed to get on air sporadically during that tenure though, when was the last time JTG was on, when AJ started up the crazy person storyline? Plus, some of the guys needed Funaki to order and receive their packages from Signature Pharmacy. Especially his neighbor HBK, who used him as a liaison to order his hair cream from Japan.

Well, yeah. That goes without saying. But it wasn't for him though. It was for a friend.

I don't know why I find it so hilarious that they named that guy "Bram." Very TNA.

Didn't they even make it into a wwe 2k13 storyline as the United Kingdom?
