Cutting A Fucking Promo 101 Revisited

Recommended Posts

Well I didn't see the original thread anywhere, but my old "How NOT To Cut A Fucking Promo" thread got restarted, so here we go....

 

I just came across this one from Mark Henry. Shitty quality, but in my opinion he's better on the mic than most give him credit for.

And here's one of my favorite moments involving the Harts.

I'll just throw these on early because it still remains one of the best promos ever:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhqmc4ltccI

 

The audio sucks on this one but goddam what a promo

Throughout that Jericho promo, I was hoping Orton would RKO and punt him. Good God, was that an annoying, obnoxious promo.

I was gonna put this in the How NOT to Cut a Promo, but this is so fucking classic.

 

Laughing Mean Gene is always a win.

On the first season of NXT, there was two times Wade Barrett demonstrated "How to cut a fucking promo" while the other guys were all like "How NOT to cut a fucking promo" all in one segment. This one was the better of those times because how Wade sells the shitty promo and "shooty shoots" on Otunga. I honestly don't know how some people thought Otunga was 'good' on the mic or that he had any charisma. Good for Wade proving those people wrong, tho.

Good lord Otunga was brutal and Wade just murdered him. I remember all of the "Daniel Bryan has all the charisma of (fill in the blank with a random object)" jokes Cole was making back then and how they thought Otunga was good on the mic. Wonder how that turned out...

This is Memphis as fuck. Lance Russell establishes the premise, Bill Dundee thoughtfully puts it over and then Dream Machine goes into JIVE OVERDRIVE to pop the fans. Wrestling's 6-4-3 double play.

And the crazy thing about Youtube is that I can watch this, randomly type "sullivan farris dundee machine" and the actual damn match they mention in this promo actually shows up <3

And please enjoy the nightmare fuel flash-frame at the end, courtesy of your friends at Lowe's.

Of all the things that have been copied from ECW over the years, it sucks that the musical montage of quick clip promos hasn't been. Those things could get about 9 different angles and characters at once and blend seamlessly from light to really dark and violent.

Austin just before he turned face

 

 

JJ Dillon and the Enforcer telling the world how Luger's a dumbass

 

 

Arn trying to talk to you-know-who. WHY THE FUCK DID YOU NOT LISTEN?!? :'(

 

 

Probably one of the top 5 promos of the year 2013

 

 

Paul Heyman: WHO IS THIS MAN?!?

I can't help but compare and contrast "Austin 3:16 says, 'I just whooped your ass!'" with "The fans can stick it, brother!" and then wonder how, and why, the NWO were over so huge.

A motived Rob Van Dam is great here he is seamlessly getting over an upcoming tag title defense with his partner Sabu and prolonging a bubbling of a rekindling of his rivalry with Sabu all while being laid back and cocky.

Oh my GOD, this shit was so intense! The fans made it as well, because for once they didn't do that stupid "WHAT!" chant during a heel promo.
