I thought this was supposed to be a point at the WM sign thread? Did the wrestling regulars get trolled after working so hard to get the last thread to 500 posts?

Nope, it's all good. WM is still a month away so there's plenty of time for a "serious" WM thread.

---------

I'll throw in my vote for Londrick. An exceptionally fun team to watch and the fact that they held the belts for a year in an era when NOBODY holds a title for that long was pretty cool.

Okay on a serious TNA note, if the first post is accurate, why is Zema Ion being rewarded with a PPV title shot after he killed that other kid with that botch-sault?

Dixie apparently Tweeted:

"@TNASorenson met w/doctors this wk & is out for up to a yr. We're blessed he will be back at all. He's staying positive. No comment on Zima."

The kid is out for a year and they're pushing the guy who shelved him with sloppy wrestling? And what's the "No comment on Zima" stuff? Is she trying to work the internet? Or is she legitimately not caring to comment on Zema's sloppy ring work and not even care to spell his ring name correctly?

The match Ion had with Sorenson was a #1 contender match so there was really no good way to remove him from a spot he won on a televised match. Considering the hot streak that Aries is on right now there is virtually no chance he'll drop the belt to Ion anyway so it's a moot point. Besides, the move wasn't particularly sloppy and the accident wasn't even totally Ion's fault. More than anything, it was an unfortunate accident.

As far as Dixie's tweet (I'm a grown man, why am I typing the word "tweet"? Wait, I watch pro wrestling.)...what was I saying? Oh yeah, she made no comment so who knows? Speculate away.

By the way many devices like Roku can be used to feed the iPPV to your TV/HDTV. In fact I've watched ROH iPPVs with my Logitech Revue which has worked just fine.

Well, in my opinion, for what that's worth (nothing), the move was particularly sloppy, especially his body rotation and his unnecessary knee tuck.

Posted Image
Posted Image

He goes from an angled backflip since he's on the outside corner to somehow twisting his body so that his head is perpendicular to the ring/feet perpendicular to the guard rail or whatever was there.

Even if his body didn't rotate like that and he just did a simple backflip at the correct angle, it looked damn near impossible to catch him with his knees bent in the entire time.

I don't have the images or GIFs handy of other wrestlers performing corner moonsaults where they don't rotate their body position midair and they actually extend their legs so they can be caught, but they exist. HBK has done several "textbook" moonsaults that were easy to catch. Lance Storm also said something to that effect on his Twitter. But its not hard to tell the move was really screwed up.

Even if you want to say Jesse was too close in, at least if Zema didn't rotate and Zema didn't tuck his knees, it probably would have been just a hard crash and bump. There is no way that move and that spot was designed for Jesse to have to face the ring in order to catch Zema properly and avoid Zema's knees and body from breaking his neck. I just don't see how you safely catch Zema with his knees like that unless its a crossbody attack or something.

That's just my take on it from watching those GIFs and YouTube videos of the incident more times than necessary.

It is a pretty sweet card, inn't it?

Kevin Steen is doing the kind of stuff that would have every-fucking-body in wrestling talking about him a decade ago. His persona, his matches - he's big time, and he deserves a lot more attention than he's getting. His match vs. Steve Corino was one of the finest matches in all of 2011 across all promotions.

Virtually every dirt sheet writer whined and cried and bitched and moaned about the match being unnecessarily brutal. What more evidence do you need than the grandaddies of all smart marks whining like marks about brutality?

Oh, for real. Their heel turn on the Briscoes didn't revolutionize wrestling booking, but you know what? It was perfectly set up and executed. Positively fucking textbook.

When I'm in the mood for a burger, sometimes I don't want someone to get all crazy and add avocado, a fried egg, gorgonzola cheese, a turkey, Kool & the Gang, and a herb-and-Cointreau-infused demi-glace made with locally sourced, grain-fed Cointreau. Sometimes I do. But other times I remember why I fuckin' love burgers. Because someone takes the simple equation of (beef + fire) + bun + cheese, and makes my goddamned heart sing.

It's not hard to make a burger. It's not too difficult to make a good burger. It takes attention, care, and knowledge to make a great fuckin' goddamned burger that you tell your friends and family about.

That's how I feel about WGTT heel turn. It's nothing new, but it was never meant to be. It's just a staple, a classic - the sort of reason, angle, persona that got us watching in the first place, done to perfection. It deserves, like Bully Ray in 2011, to be recognized for standing out among its peers for the quality of craftsmanship lying under the hood.

There's just so much that went wrong in that situation - but the thing that sticks out most to me is that there's not enough space between the ring and the guard rail.

Looks like Ion was worried about hitting rail with his shins so the knee tucking and under rotation happened..not to say the jump wasn't poorly angled but that's what it looks like happened in mid-air to me.

IMO, that's a plausible analysis. The situation wasn't helped either by Sorenson tucking his chin into his chest. Mistakes were made by both wrestlers and unfortunately it resulted in a very serious injury.

When did WGTT turn heel?

According to an article on GameBandits.com, representatives from THQ recently reached out to former WWE Attitude Era stars, who aren’t currently under contract with WWE, for inclusion in the WWE ’13 video game.


They mentioned Sean “X-Pac” Waltman as one of the names who THQ reached out to and reportedly, Waltman was insulted by the offer.


To clarify, Xpac was insulted by the amount of money they offered, as he said it was way below what other people with that type of contract make.
