  1. Personally I think you guys are way over-thinking the crowd thing. It has nothing to do with people cheering because they 'appreciate what they do' or fans are smarter. People cheer the wrestler that entertains them. When I was a young kid my favorite wrestlers were Great Muta, Sting, and Vader in WCW. Two were heels. I knew of course it wasn't real but there was no Internet to tell me who Muta was or how accomplished Vader was in Japan, I liked them because I found their matches entertaining. That's it. And its not a new thing the smart internet crowd invented and I don't think its a bad thin

  5. Once the kicking team touches it it's a dead ball. That's what I got. I think there's a rule quirk in there that the receiving team can try to advance it but cannot fumble it. Which seems idiotic but I think Aikman said it. Speaking of idiotic, Cam Heyward was fined 5k for writing Iron Head on his eye black in honor of his dad who died of cancer - you know, during Cancer Awareness month. So today....he has Iron Head written in his eye black. Fuck you, Goodell.

  11. Same here. I think the real problem with not letting guys "heel it up" is that it limits your options to protect a heel. For the most part, the WWE doesn't let guys heel it up too overtly. You don't see too many guys cheating, putting feet on ropes, trying to leave the ring, going for a chair, pulling the ref, etc. There aren't too many managers anymore and those that are around don't interfere in matches much (Lana). And there aren't a lot of stables or teams anymore. Taken together, that limits your options in a match. The options for most of the roster are heel pins babyface or babyf

  17. Well I think a major reason entertaining heels are being cheered more is due to a lack of good babyfaces. Sasha got booed plenty when she heeled on Bayley, but is anyone going to care if she attacks Charlotte or Paige on the main roster? There's no likeable entertaining faces to balance things. New Day has 10 times the personality of most of the people they go up against. They made Cena feel ancient when they were clowning him, and Cena was standing there like get off my lawn New Day. Of course these acts are going to be cheered over bland babyfaces.

  28. The discussion is not about any restriction of free will on whom you can like or how you can react, but on the classic heel/face dynamic and how booking can or can't affect audience reaction. It appears that people are not reacting emotionally to the classic booking structure, but are choosing who they favor by how accomplished a performer a worker is. How do you account for that? How does that change who gets pushed? Who is in control here? heavy, RAF

  31. There is a lot to what you say, and a huge problem that's been created with everyone having their own "special" moves is that you have heels using high-end babyface offense which produces cheers. Exactly the opposite of the desired result. You also have too many guys that are ostensibly heels that really don't know how to work heel; Randy Orton gets ripped on a lot at this site, but I find Orton is one guy that can be counted on to always remember the little things to do in order to establish which mode he's working in. Jericho used to be pretty good at this, but he's devolved considerably ove

  35. So I got an iPhone 6s Plus. I'm coming from a Nexus 6 and I do like it. Some random thoughts: The camera is great. My Android phone history is this: Original Motorola Droid on Verizon from 2009, Galaxy Nexus, 2013 Moto X and the Nexus 6. None of those phones had a great camera. The N6 was capable of producing good photos, but it had to be in good lighting and preferably of a non-moving object. The shutter speed was very long on it which made taking quality shots of a lot of stuff quite difficult. I thought it was overall a good camera until I started using this. From what I've read, the curr

  38. Not really. I mean he turned twice during his main run - face on HHH and heel on Mysterio. They brought him back as a babyface and it didn't work because of Daniel Bryan, but let's not hold that against him.

  40. A heel can "get heat" (elicit negative emotions from the crowd that express themselves via booing, hurling insults/debris/weapons, charging the ring, etc.by his/her actions, personality or words) or "have heat" (be in a state of active crowd disapproval by previous actions or current angles/booking). Thus, the heel on top portion of a match is referred to at the "heat segment". A babyface get "get his/her shine" by reversing the heel or in the comeback segment, but there is no such thing as "having shine". I witnessed a local top baby go over a match with Greg Valentine once in the locker room

  41. I hope the upcoming match inspires everyone to watch this. Easily a top 10 WWE MOTD, probabaly my second favorite HIAC behind Taker/Foley. The most amazing part is that Brock was only in WWE for like 6 months at this point.
