  1. this. Keeping the dude off TV when its well know he wants out only gets people behind him and actively wanting him to go to AEW so "they can use him right". If you are Vince McMahon and you see so little value in the guy, why are you wasting your money on paying the guy, even if it is a drop in the bucket? If you want to make him look stupid for asking for his release on Twitter, have the dude doing 30 second jobs to Mojo Rawley. Kevin Owens is under a multi year contract, wants to work there, they(one would assume)see value in him, and he is made to look like a thundering bitch on Smackdown before being fired. I don't get the old lunatic's line of thinking!
  2. If there was to be a main roster big gun to come to NXT that the fans wouldn't shit on, Kevin Owens or AJ Styles are about the only ones I could see. Nakamura or Zayn could also fit the bill but I don't think the top brass sees them as big guns. Owens definitely could use major rehabbing after that....well, you all saw Smackdown. Styles could have some great matches with Undisputed Era. Thinking out loud, I personally would send Finn back to NXT. Feels like he's hit his ceiling on Raw/Smackdown.
  3. No, the Twitter thing wasn't a smart move. But this is just so stupid and so petty on WWE's part. Let's ignore the fact there are a lot of ways you could use Harper(don't you want to see him on NXT?). But why in the hell are you going to throw money away paying a dude to sit at home? Shit, who tried to kill Roman is already off the charts stupid. Instead of a Rowan look alike, what if that was Harper under the hood? What if Daniel Bryan had no idea Rowan had reached out to his old partner to try to kill the guy they have had issues with going back to the Shield days? Roman is so damn BIG DOG STRONG he challenges them both to a match and beats the shit out of Harper before pulling out the win, and you can segue into Bryan wanting to right Harper because YOU AND ROWAN ARE LYING LIARS WHO LIE and Bryan can beat Harper. Granted I am not saying any of that is a good idea but you can at least get a few weeks of tv out of it, Vince can "bury" Harper with some high profile losses and we the fans at least get some good matches out of the deal. Its all so dumb
  4. If dude wants to be a MEGA HEEL, screw the crown. Keep that hat. Rock it, you magnificent douchebag
  5. I want to see it go the other way. Nikki snaps and goes ape shit kicking Alexa's ass. There's a babyface run to be had with Alexa, and I just miss crazy Nikki
  7. I know this will never happen, but I wish we could go back to an era where no one knew who wrote/booked/scripted/whatever any and all wrestling programs. Sure, it's an interesting useless fact when you know who came up with something, but I just want an entertaining program. I don't care who came up with it. I don't care who is writing the show. If Paul Heyman writes a show that is absolute ass it really shouldn't matter more then if Vince McMahon comes up with THE BEST SHIT EVER, PAL on his own. Just give me a good program with characters that make sense and a good match here and there. That's all I really want
  8. jesus Christ this movie WRECKED ME. I mean, it's technically a well made movie and all but I just remember curling in a ball and crying after it was over
  9. I really wish there was more time in the week to keep up with NXT UK but there's just SO MUCH WRESTLING(I know, first world problems) -WALTER vs Bate was long but damnit I was engrossed from start to finish and was screaming for Bate to put the big son of a bitch down. Bate threw everything he had and then some and came so close but in the end WALTER was just too much. Count me in on the crowd wanting a BSS/Imperium Wargames -Tag match was great and people taking their shoes off because they hate Gibson never gets old to me. -Women's match was too short and felt like it just...ended but I liked what we did get. -Since we all know he's not going to do anything on Raw or Smackdown can we just let Cesaro stay and tear it up like he did tonight? and give me Cesaro vs WALTER!!!
  10. YouTube has let me down as far as seeing the whole show, but just based on what I did see: -Yes, the young bucks vs the lucha bros was an insane spotfest as expected. Several times I thought Nick and Matt were both seriously hurt as a few falls(especially Nick to the outside where he barely made it to one table when I assume he was supposed to hit both)looked UGLY. But I would be ok with the ladder match getting put on the shelf for a while across the board. After a while they all start to blend together, and while there's rarely a bad one, there's a sameness to them in setting up big spot---big spot---sell---attempt to climb---climb is stopped---setting up big spot. Give it a breather and give us time to appreciate it again. -Shawn Spears vs Cody was better then I expected but I wouldn't call it great. There's a lot of hate for Spears round the interwebs, but AEW is going to need someone like him. Moxley/Omega/Jericho/Cody/PAC etc. all feel like they are on the same level. Someone needs to be a step below them to work with guys who need to be bumped up a notch. Spears is the guy who is never going to be a world champion, but can give you 15-20 good minutes on your TNT show to help make someone a bigger star. I liked Arn's cameo and Tully's subsequent "What the hell, man?" reaction. And maybe next time don't try to be out a terrified dog after fireworks spook him? Just saying. -Jericho vs Page was just ok. Chris winning was the right answer, as now you can have this arrogant prick show up on the first show taking credit for everything, putting down everyone and DEMANDING HIS THANK YOU, DAMNIT. And in the long run it gives Page more of a story. I know they want me to believe he's the next guy, but he's not there just yet. They set up that he "has to win" and now he didn't. So what happens next? -Speaking of Jericho, can we get him to ease up on the booze a little bit? I ain't even ragging on his physique, since he's 11 years older then me and looks better, but he just looks like someone woke him up after a three day bender and told him it was time to go wrestle most of his AEW appearances. When Flair was on his podcast doing a Harley Race tribute, Jericho let it slipped that a lot of guys are calling him the new Flair. That ain't a good look, dude.
  11. see, that would actually be fun. Delusional heel Bo Dallas was fun as all hell, and him being dragged out of the arena by security is one of my personal favorite NXT moments.
  12. Wait, I live here too. I thought we were bound by law to make fun of Indiana
  13. I think the best part of that tweet in the top right hand corner was that this magnificent human being legit filmed himself sleeping under a park bench. Oney Lorcan is the best, Oney #1
  14. "He's trying to shave his beard!"
  15. I'm intrigued by the Sami and Nakamura pairing. If they actually put time into this and remember its a thing in 3 weeks this could help both guys out. Sami can handle all the talking and take the douchebaggery up a few notches. And if they insist on this stupid "artist" stuff with Shinsuke, let him be a pompous asshole who can't be bothered to interact with all of us lowly people beneath him.
  16. I can see a lot of the guys being folded over into NXT in time for it to go two hours. And in all honesty, they should just retire the cruiserweight title. Personally, I want it to stick around, but we all know that the main powers that be don't really give a shit about it and probably don't remember that it exists. Let guys like Gulak, Oney, Humberto, etc chase the NXT belts and actually be in a position to have people give a shit about their matches.
  17. His whole Vote for Jose thing is just not going to happen. Poor bastard
  18. I'm just confused at what point the Street Profits became "indy darlings"
  19. It's going to be and its not going to be for the better. I'm not arguing that NXT is perfect, but it's a breath of fresh air from a lot of main roster bullshit and I don't want Vince or Dunn to get their grubby mitts on it. Hell, I don't want it to be live or two hours. We don't need every god damn show to be 2 hours long.
  20. As a Kentucky redneck, I would be all in on an American Crime:The Cornbread Mafia. I might be the only one who would watch such a thing but you would get my rating every week!
  21. Leave NXT alone, god damnit. I don't want main roster bullshit infiltrating the shows. If we have to have guys cycle down there, I'm ok with it as long as it's along the lines of breezeango and Killian Dane. The idea that everything has to be live and two hours just depresses me the most. Part of what makes NXT work is that you have time to miss guys. With only an hour you can't feature everyone, so there is room to breathe and you get to see different people every week. The weekly show isn't perfect, but no show for any promotion ever is perfect. But this is the show where I don't have to deal with stupid heel authority figures and crap over whose running the company and all the other main roster shit. Don't Vince this up, damnit
  22. I love Shayna to a "settle down (insert name here)etico" degree but they are going to run into a problem with her soon, if they haven't already done it. At this point there really is no one who can credibly beat her. She's bulldozed through everyone and there's no one left. The match with Mia was a perfectly cromulant match, but it ain't setting the world on fire. If nothing else, Mia could have won to keep the belt warm for heel Io(and give me more of her, please) and Shayna could have been freed up to move on to other things. I HATE when they have the champions just vacate the belts instead of dropping them, and I fear that's where we are headed again soon.
