  1. I can't believe you guys are so down on Seamus as champion. We have 3 ready-made main event challengers; Ryback, Kalisto and an Uso.

  2. The Wyatt's are just hilarious at this point. That was a house show squash. I have to come to terms with the fact that I'm paying $10 a month for NXT and old Nitros. And the time I spend watching a wwe show every month is like the extra tax slapped on.

  3. That was very far from awful. Your review blows.

  4. Guys, being humiliated in a short title match by Sheamus us actually a great way to get over. Daniel Bryan proved that. So now all Roman has to do is have a year-long losing streak angle, be left at the alter by a woman who now becomes his boss, team up with Kane for months in comedy skits,and be buried by the announce team every week for the way he looks... ...and he's good to go.

  6. Xavier Woods looked like The Cat from Red Dwarf. That is literally all the discussion of the show I care to do. See you guys in the Raw thread tomorrow.

  7. The only good thing about this show was the TLC commercial where they had a 16 bit beat 'em up style video game.

  8. "Pay the Bills." Dean has figured out that in nearly every town there is a guy named Bill who sells leftover chicken grease chunks out of the back of a local Church's. There's two ways to pay him and Dean also figured out that "money is the easier one." Note: Thanks to Roman, last night was a "hard way chicken grease" night for Dean.

  9. I've mentioned this before, but I don't think I'd have a problem with the chants or the fans if the crowd wasn't so well lit and the camera didn't pan to some dude in a batman shirt with every new chant at the expense of the match. To me, it makes it seem like the NXT producers are saying the way to get on TV is to constantly chant no matter what the situation. Because of this, the fans have been conditioned to not actually react organically, but instead to expect a reward for being 'clever'. I don't think anyone doubts how committed the Full Sail crowd is to NXT. They very clearly love it. That being said, the way NXT and the crowd have been presented has created a crowd that now expects constant recognition. To me, this is a problem, and it will continue to hurt the overall presentation of NXT.

  10. No, Roman will come out and talk for 20 minutes. He'll talk about how he had the title won and lost it, but that's okay. Then he will make some bad jokes and talk the rest of the interview in catch phrases. Believe Dat!!!! Then he will wrestle a 18 minute match against the Big Show. Then we will all fall asleep.

  11. Charlotte/Paige made the show worthwhile, and was at least as good as Sasha/Bayley II. Beg your pardon?

  13. Xavier's hair was kind of nice. And Wade Barrett enjoying himself with New Day was cool.

  14. The only argument I'M making, is that we stop pretending that when the crowd does stuff like that, that it isn't about getting themselves over. They desperately want to be part of the show, and you can't tell me that the NXT crowd doesn't see themselves as being part of the show. I'll be the first to admit that they are generally a good crowd, but they have their moments where they are insufferable and detract from an otherwise good moment. Have we forgotten them doing the Peter Griffin gimmick when Bayley hurt her knee? When they do stuff like that, they are absolutely not engaged. As mentioned before though, they aren't even in the same stratosphere as post-Mania Raw crowds.

  15. Easily the best RAW in a month. Great main event. Easily the least boring Authority promo since I started watching again. I'm sure it's a coincidence it's the one where Triple H talked the least. Plus there was a dream sequence involving Torito, a cowboy hat, and a hamburger. Worst thing about the show was HEY IMAGINE IF FUCKING NEW DAY ACTUALLY WON A MATCH. Liked most everything else in some way. Good crowd too. Nashville is alright.

  19. Stupid. So why make Reigns champion in the first place? Why not have Cesaro upset him or have Reigns get screwed over in the semis or something? It takes away any real meaning it would have had as Reigns has already climbed the mountain and become champion. He's no longer on the rise. He's reached the top. Fucking stupid. I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around just how obtuse Vince and the rest of the writing staff is. We're going to push Roman to the moon, but because how the audience is reacting to him, we're going to audible into Rollins cashing in and winning the title. 7 months later... We still don't want fans to boo Roman when he wins the title, so we're going to have Sheamus win it and Roman will eventually win the title and will be cheered for it. They're worried about the fan response to him without even being aware of why that's happening. Look at why Brock is so goddamn over. Or even Ambrose. They're not doing cutesy shit. I posted a couple videos in the general wrestling thread of the Shield/Wyatts confrontation from 2013 and 2014. That's how you book Roman if you don't want to worry about the fans booing him. INSTEAD, they think the way to make the fans not boo him is to cut lame ass promos and make it look so blatantly obvious he's getting shoved down people's throats. Unless Roman takes the CM Punk route and develops a backbone and fuck you attitude, this shit isn't going to change.

  20. They could have at least explained that Dean was taking his post-match dump in an abandoned car in the woods somewhere, hence missing his boy's beat down. Come on WWE.com....where the fuck were you?

  22. I've long been of the opinion that Reigns as an antihero would totally work. Let him destroy anyone who's dumb enough to get in his way, whether they're face or heel. Let him go on a scorched earth crusade and force HHH to deal with the fallout.

  23. Exactly. Remember when the Shield were pissed and did a run-in on nearly every match on an episode of SD? Roman going ballistic, saying fuck this, and just kicking the shit out of everyone would help him so much and make the upcoming re-match with Sheamus so much more interesting... But no fucking way that happens.

  24. I'll join you in that minority. I have NEVER liked the concept. A title match should be almost "sacred." Taking focus off it for any reason devalues the top of the card in my opinion.

  25. I'm probably in the minority, but I'm tired of the whole MITB concept by now. It's been done a million times already and it's hard to stay focused on the champion knowing he could lose it at any random moment. Why should I care about X champion vs. X contender when a guy can run in with a briefcase at the end and change the whole thing?

  26. So, the new World champ is a guy that's been floundering in the midcard for months, got knocked out of the world title tournament early, and lost a match earlier in the night after being made fun of for being a lame white boy and abandoned by his (cooler, way more over) teammates. What's the opposite of momentum? Honestly, Sheamus is a fine transitional champion. He's a good worker, decent promo, and has enough history with other guys on the roster that it's easy to put together a few mini-programs that make sense before he drops the belt. If he'd come back strong, stayed strong, and put together a nice win streak for the past few weeks (the Del Rio model, we'll call it), him winning the bet would be perfectly acceptable.This method of booking MITB guys as directionless goofs on a losing streak who suddenly win the belt and bring their lack of credibility into the main event is just the worst.

  27. Taker is supposed to be a massive real estate mogul so I'd imagine he'd walk away fully. If we never get Sting v Taker can we at least get Real Estate Steve vs Real Estate Mark with IRS as special referree?

  29. So the match between two best friends started with more hate than the match based around insulting someone's dead brother.

  36. I have a theory. I think they're tanking so they can take it back to being private. Drive the stock price down, buy everybody out. Being publicly traded is bad for a tyrant. But they probably just suck now. That's more likely.

  37. Most importantly, no heel turn for Reigns or Ambrose, still best friends! Thought their match was perfect and exactly how it should've been. Sheamus was predictable but I did think they'd have Reigns go over him too. Enjoyed Reigns/Alberto, for a match that had the most obvious outcome it was real good. Glad they actually did two traditional tags even if one was the preshow. Ziggler/Breeze was completely heatless and short, not that there was much put in to that feud but quite the fall from Dolph at last year's show. Charlotte/Paige was awkward at times but not bad though nothing special. Liked the Brothers of Destruction match, enjoyed all things Taker & Kane especially putting Braun through the table, fun match. Now Reigns/Sheamus at TLC, I'd guess Owens/Ambrose over the IC, and I wish they'd do a 4 way ladder tag for the titles since they have the perfect setup with multiple contenders.

  38. Being dead for 8 years is the perfect way to stay out of the spotlight to plan a surprise attack. Oh....so the Illuminati has you believing that he's "dead?" The reptilians really have won...

I am debating trying to be the top scorer in a match just so I can carry that bounty over until the next IB but I have so much other crap to do.

  43. What about that bullshit where new Deus Ex got delayed 'til next August? Here I was figuring I'd almost have Fallout beaten by February and then slip right into Deus Ex. Now there's only Xcom 2 and whenever that new Tomb Raider comes out on computer and I still haven't even played this fucking Metal Gear 5 shit and Just Cause 3 comes out in a few weeks and That Mad Max game will be getting cheap soon as well as that new Transformers game and I just got that new assassins creed game for free with an SSD on newegg and I never beat Arkham city and I never beat Dark Souls and never even Played Bloodborne or Endless Legend and I never played Fez or Invisible Inc and I still haven't beat Kingdoms of Amalur and I never beat the story mode on that Mortal Kombat 9 game and I never beat Pillars of Eternity and I wanna rebeat Resident Evil 4 on PC and I didn't play this new Strider game or Talos Principle or Toki Tori 2 or Transistor and that new Wolfenstein game is hard as fuck and I wanna beat that Warhammer Space Marine game. In the words of the great bard DLR "Gimme a 72 hour day and we'll play catch up." I'd also like a bottle of anything and a glazed donut.
