He tweeted that he went and saw Hobbs and Shaw, and that there was no reaction in the theatre when Roman was on the screen. Like mother fuckers jump out of their seats at a cinema when they see an actor. 

You say that. But I've seen enough phone video of Endgame screenings to know there are a lot of obnoxious people out there.

He keeps doubling down on his terrible Roman Reigns takes since he proclaimed he had the good kind of leukemia.

He's making comparisons with Cena and Piper as well. Beautiful. 

Not just Cena and Piper, but Terry Funk as well.

Yes, I too remember that huge pop Terry Funk got from the theatre when he showed up in Roadhouse. We all chanted "Thank you Terry!" and "You deserve it!" that night.

Hulk Hogan got a pop for his Gremlins 2 cameo. Hugh Jackman’s cameo in First Class got a huge reaction at my screening. Kylo Ren got massive heel heat for killing Han.

Let’s not act like people don’t mark out at theaters.

Let's not also act like the people that were in Meltzer's theatre not cheering for Roman is indicative of anything.  

Unless you could somehow figure out the reactions of every audience member in the tens of thousands of movie theatres and screenings of Hobbs and Shaw around the world that have occurred, Meltzer's take means absolutely nothing and is thus, terrible.

I’ve spoken to many a casual fan, and I’ve basically heard the same thing... “There was another wrestler in the movie? Listen, I remember The Giant in Jingle All The Way. I don’t remember that Roland Regis fellow in Hobbs & Shaw.” They all said it exactly like that. One guy said he heard “Who are you” chants at his showing. Might’ve been an influx of European filmgoers that day.

I agree, but that promo was pretty cornball. He’s presenting himself like a desperate loser.  I can feel in his voice that he knows he isn’t going to win. Having his parents ringside is like Steamboat brining out his little steamer only to lose.  Page seems capable of talking but they should have tried a few tales. Page is gonna get booed in Chicago if he keeps presenting himself as a loser.

So to the Bucks promo.  Just as cliched as possible.  Even suggesting a team they’ve pretty much exclusively battled has never been in the ring with a team like them.  Not horrible but certainly a lame duck promo 

Weak road to this week.

I agree, especially given how Page said Jericho’s weakness was how he was physically desperate for the title, then said Jericho wants the title but went on and on about how he needs it, making himself sound more desperate for the title than he said Jericho was.

The Bucks saying the Lucha Bros were “real life brothers” got an eye roll from me, as did JR casually calling Jericho a sonofabitch in his jacket that was too small for his shirt. At least it was an improvement over all the chest hair in the Spears interview.

I'm glad this rankled someone else too. I get that the Bucks are as modern as modern can be, and kayfabe has changed, but to say something that basically translates to 'real life brothers, because they're not fake brothers, because this is all fake, remember?' in a promo is pretty jarring.

Maybe there's something to be said for all the Being The Elite filming making it harder for them to switch in and out of kayfabe, so it all becomes one big hodgepodge.

I don't get it. Wrestling has a long history of fake brothers, but more importantly there's the "brotherhood" that long-term tag teams forge that they're saying being actual brothers trumps. This seems like nitpicking.

When did “brother” teams become a thing?  

When I was a kid, I almost always assumed that every team who shared the same skin color were almost always bothers(Yes, even the Hart Foundation).

It sounds worked-shooty. The fact that it clearly wasn’t intended that way, and they just casually sound like that makes it even worse, IMO. 

Nitpicking would be pointing out they need a tailor and personal shopper for all their announcers because they mostly look unprofessional.

I would understand the Bucks' comments as "they don't just call themselves Lucha Brothers, they are actually brothers, like we are."

Right. Compare them to the Hell Brothers, Brothers of Destruction etc...

Yeah, that other stuff is fake. But this stuff. This stuff?! We’re real. Real life brothers.

Moxley is officially out for next weekend.

Be interesting to see what they try to throw together for Kenny.  Maybe insert him into the title match to make it a 3-way?

Yeah that’s a bummer. We’ll see what audible they go with. There’s gonna be injuries and monkey wrenches to mess up the best of long term plans.

I honestly believe that Match was a main selling point just as much as the brand itself. I think the PPV buys are going to take a hit.

Glad to see PAC cleared up whatever it was that prevented him from doing Double Or Nothing. 

These shows are starting to look a little snake bit with the last-minute changes to the semi-mains. Hopefully their luck improves.

Upgraydd in the ring but I do wonder how big of a hit this takes on PPV buys. I imagine the large majority were going to buy it regardless. We will never know.
