  1. Bray might be the smartest man on the roster. How much are he and Alexa getting paid? How much merch are they moving? How hard are they actually working for that cash? How many bumps did he take in that match? Three? Bray Wyatt is the ultimate wrestling carny. He's the Matt Cassel of pro wrestling. Good for him. I hope he take Vince to the cleaners for another decade like Kane did.
  2. Ohhhhhh man. Asuka and Sasha as lady yakuza... Getting around in suits, putting bounties on people, smacking around young lionesses from NXT...
  3. And then have them kick the shit out of each other on the way to a no contest leading to a "Best of Seven" and then a tag team ala The Bar.
  4. Really, really happy for my fellow Aussie in Rhea Ripley but damn girl, go listen to that Paul Wight/Big Show podcast and work like the fucking giant that you are. I don't want to see Rhea Ripley on the mat, trading holds with Asuka. I want to see her smashing faces and heaving bitches around the ring. She sells waaaaaay too much for her character and her position on the roster. Roman is the best thing they have right now. He should hold the title until TLC/Royal Rumble and drop it to Big E. Then give me a New Day Triple Threat (and fuck it, crown Woods for a short run) on night 1 and Rom
  5. I said multiple times that the perfect role for Bayley now is to become the ACE of the Women's tag division. Tag Team Tanahashi if you will. The Riott Squad should have won the tag belts and Billie Kay's search for a partner/friend should have ended with Bayley. Tell me Bayley and Billie Kay hosting 'Ding Dong Hello' as tag champs isn't perfect?
  6. This used to be a great meme for workers going too far with their recklessness and 'epic' struggle. Now it's the first spot of every Takeover match in NXT.
  7. Luger beats Yoko for the title at SummerSlam 93. Bret and Owen do the 'tied' Rumble winner spot. Mania 10 - Luger drops the title to Owen. Bret beats Yoko but is injured in the process. Bret battles the odds and beats Owen (to send the crowd home happy) but loses in the rematch due to his injury.
  8. Kross is perfectly fine to just sit on the NA title for a year. Pop the crowd with the entrance, squash someone and choke 'em out. He's wasted in 20 minute main events.
  9. "Who's side is Shelton on?" is a great little story. MVP, Alexander, Corbin vs Angle, Gable, Otis
  10. Triple H v HBK at SummerSlam 02. Shawn's comeback. I loved that one.
  11. Fuck you, I want that so bad now. Hurt Business v Kurt Business at Mania thanks.
  12. If WWE gave us THIS kind of stuff on a weekly basis their stars would be so much bigger/brighter. This makes a super human weight trainer like John Cena feel like a dude at my local gym. Someone I could see and get tips from. Someone I can RELATE too. I'm way more invested in this match (No idea if it's Rock 1 or Rock 2) than I was with the Fruity Pebbles, "See ya in Hollywood", You are a part timer blah blah BS they actually put on RAW at the time.
  13. Edge should goad Roman into making it a TLC match. Then you can really sell Edge having a shot at winning as Roman hasn't been in a heap of ladder matches while Edge is an expert. Otherwise the only tension in this match is on a meta level of "Will Vince want to send the fans home happy & reward a long time employee for making an incredible comeback?" I wonder what it would be like to look at WWE purely through the lens of kayfabe these days...
  14. I think there was always a suspicion that both the Lana/Rusev and Bliss/Murphy relationships got messed around with by influential people backstage. I could absolutely see some people in WWE being... disappointed... in Charlotte's choice of partner. It goes both ways though. There was a heap of scuttlebutt that Rhea Ripley's push was mostly down to Triple H digging her a little more than he probably should for a guy in his position. Knowing his tastes though it's easy to see that connection.
  15. On the "Heel champs should get DQd" logic/trope - Why hasn't anyone done this with the MITB? When Ziggler cashed in Del Rio it was a huge moment. It could have gone very differently if ADR just punted Dolph in the crotch after the ref rang the bell. THAT is a subversion of expectations!
  16. I don't understand how you fuck up Andrade, Black & Ricochet as bad as they have. Black never needs to talk. Just have him go toe to toe with everyone knowing that Black Mass is a silver bullet. Stick the IC/US title on him and just let him rock n roll for 15 mins every week. Andrade had the great heel run in NXT, amazing work with Rey on SDL, and a the look to be built as that Latin star they have been craving forever. Again, who cares if he can't speak English? That's what Vega was for. She's gone? Cool, grab someone from NXT. Ricochet is another one. He doesn't need to ta
  17. Since the Awesome Truth run in 2011 I've wanted Truth to be the 'Yin' to John Cena's 'Yang'. Bring back the Dr of Thuganomics for a short 'fun' nostalgia run and then let Truth MURDER him on the mic, just once, and then go full Raven/Dreamer style with Cena never being able to beat him. They can both go off and do other things but any time we see Cena and Truth face off, Truth is winning. They would even be great in the 'Enemies have to team up to take down a bigger threat and why not win the tag titles along the way' story line that Vince loves to run. I think it could have been per
  18. And it gave us "crazy psycho homeless" Truth -
  19. Another easy 'out' for the did explosion - Have it revealed that Kenny was worried he might lose. That he feared what Moxley would do to him so he wimped out on the gimmick. Then you can have the Club take out Mox on Dynamite, and redo the match (this time built by Jon/Eddie) when Mox gets back or at Revolution 2022.
  20. Trying to salvage it would be tough but that's mostly down to Kingston's selling. I would turn it into a character beat for him. Have him cut a sad, maybe even tearful, promo - He thought Mox was gonna die and he panicked/hyperventilated/blacked out while trying to cover his BFF. He could absolutely sell that. Omega takes the "I built a ring made of sparklers because you hardcore guys are a joke." angle. Kingston goes after Omega next but can't overcome the numbers game. Then when Mox gets back they team up and go after the whole "Club" and we can get a handicap or 6 man in
  21. We need either MVP winning the US title OR him signing Ricochet and sending him to go get it. Imagine MVP cutting a promo about how Ricochet used to be a prince and now he's just a punchline. Tweener turn (Hurt Business are not heels) and put the mask on for Ricochet. Move merch, develop character, build this stable into a huge force for someone (New Day + Friends?) to try and overcome.
  22. No way. I want Lesnar v Lashley to be like Steiner v Goldberg or Lesnar v Reigns. Just two massive dude throwing bombs at each other. Lashley goes over because he has MVP and Lesnar doesn't have Heyman any more.
  23. I'm so happy right now. Massive congratulations to Bobby Lashley. I hope he can hold the title through Mania (sorry Drew) & give us Lashley v Lesnar at SummerSlam.
  24. Great call. I can't remember where (might have been Gulak?) but I recall reading one of the 205 live guys wanted the belt to be defended exclusively in 2/3 falls matches to help set it apart from other titles rather than just being "it's for the little guys".
  25. Are we building to Braun v Shane? Next week would actually be a perfect time to use a cage match. They can justify it by saying that all of Hurt Business, Morrison, Strowman, AJ/Omos, Bad Bunny, Priest and Drew have reason to interfere so this keeps everyone out. Hurt Business need to get all the gold. I want MVP to recruit Ricochet and send him after the US title.
