2.) His face. He does not look menacing. His teeth are awful. His ears are large and stick way out. He looks like a giant angry lemur.

I don't know if anyone ever watches NXT (I normally don't, but I fell asleep on the couch and it came up on Hulu), but I really enjoyed the William Regal match from 4/10/13. Then again I always liked Regal so maybe I'm a bit biased.

is there even a reason to watch smack down anymore? Seems like its just a bunch of recap segments of what happened on RAW with a few terrible matches sprinkled in and a mediocre main event then a reminder to tune in on Monday. Its no longer like back when it started where story lines continually developed on RAW and Smackdown

It's so hit or miss. Two weeks ago it was amazing. The past week was solid. They ended up having 3 of the exact same matches on RAW though, which was really stupid. I literally couldn't tell if I was watching Smackdown again, or RAW on Monday night (at least for the first half).

I'm no longer going to attend Extreme Rules here locally. I just can't justify the cost given that The Rock and CM Punk won't be there. I noticed on the local promo last week for ER that Punk wasn't mentioned. 30 minutes later he walks off RAW. Coincidence? Probably not...

Lately, the only times I watch Smackdown is when they air live on Tuesdays on Syfy. And they still sucked. Why watch a rerun live?

Where was Jericho during last night's Raw?

The crowd woke up some during Fandango and Team Hell No's segments but yeah, they overall sucked on Monday. Ziggler's first walkout as champion resulted in no reaction whatsoever.

I take it they turned Ryback heel so he could face a returning Goldberg later in the year to hype his new DVD/Blu Ray/puppy calendar. :sigh: Looks like I'm going back to skipping Raw for a year and watching only Smackdown when this happens.

Let's all start watching and commenting more on ROH/PWG/TNA, then.

It's about time to use my consumer attention span a bit better. Ziggler as champ is well and good, but Cesaro as a jobbing yodeler is enough for me to stay away from the product for a bit. Call me up when he's no longer yodeling, or at least putting on a good match here and there (his match with Kofi *was* really good, but Kofi has been so buried the past few months it hardly matters a lick).

Two matches have been confirmed for the War Games DVD:

* Ultimate Jeopardy Steel Cage Match from ECW CyberSlam 1999: The Dudleys and Mustafa vs. New Jack, Axl Rotten and Balls Mahoney
* War Games from WCW Fall Brawl 1997: Kevin Nash, Sean Waltman, Konnan and Buff Bagwell vs. Ric Flair, Chris Benoit, Curt Hennig and Steve “Mongo” McMichael

It's a little surprising they're putting a Benoit match on there. I wonder how cut up it will be.

Also, all of Ryback's tweets were deleted after he posted this one: “Watching the pain on Cena’s face was worth standing back for. Funny the 2 things he says I lack his ex wife seems to love. #RybackRules”

How the WWE booking has worked out for the past two or so years has shifted from the days of having "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and Vince McMahon appearing all over the show. The company has seemed to fallen into a one segment (two at the most) per wrestler per show habit. Even Cena, who is the go-to guy for the company rarely makes it onto television more than once. Lesnar, for as much as he is paid per appearance, you'd think they want to use his dates more fully but even that doesn't happen.

The days of a show being built around a wrestler are over. The wrestlers are now built around the show now. This approach I think is one of the biggest reasons I've found it difficult in invested in any superstars, including CM Punk over his past "historic" title run. The company is spreading their superstars out too thin and not using enough television time to really build their wrestlers like Cesaro or Kofi up. In terms of sheer title wins, Kofi Kingston is among the most decorated guys on the entire roster. 4 Intercontinental Reigns, 3 US Reigns, 1 World Tag Team Title Reign (with CM Punk), and 2 WWE Tag Team Title runs. But does it feel like that? No way!

It feels like ever after Jeff Hardy got built up and bailed on the company in 2009, the WWE has been gun shy about building anyone new up. The only TWO guys that seemed to have gotten the rub from 2009 to 2012 are Sheamus and to a lesser degree, Alberto Del Rio. Apart from those two guys, if you go look through all the PPVs for the last two years, no one has pushed as hard, or protected as much, as those two guys. Even Punk was curtain jerking for John Cena. Now with it looking like the old guard is just about all but dead, we've got The Shield, Antonio Cesaro, Dolph Ziggler, Fandango, Ryback, and Big E. Langston all getting one segment per episode of Raw to get over.

I've actually started doing just this. RoH gets picked up late on Saturday nights out here. I don't know who anyone is, but it's not a bad show.

I always forget TNA is on. Guess I should set a reminder.

They really missed an opportunity to have Wade Barrett and Antonio Cesaro, two non-US citizens with US titles, interact with each other. They could have formed a team or one of them could have turned face and start a feud.

I definitely want to start watching more TNA just keep forgetting to catch it on TV but do watch a lot on youtube.

A big problem with the WWE is it seems like somewhere along the line when the WWE went PG they decided only good guys (faces) could succeed and the bad guys (heels) had to fail and look weak. Just look at CM Punk when he started his title reign he was a face and would always win and looked good then he turned heel and was made to look weak though he was still champion he barely defended his title with help from Maddox and the Shield and then lost twice to Rock and then to the Undertaker with a loss to Cena thrown in for good measure. Also look at guys like Cesaro and Barett, while they are champions they are also heels so they have to lose and made to look weak. Only heels that look strong now are the Shield and who knows how long that will last

Being there, doing that.

I've been interested in catching some PWG but it's usually cost-prohibitve. I also wouldn't mind checking out some Dragon Gate USA.

ROH Border Wars will have Richards/Marufuji so that will definitely be a highlight.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but.... Naomichi Marufuji has been pulled from the show due to injury (ligament damage in his right knee). ROH will announce who Davey Richards (and Michael Elgin at the TV taping the next day) will be facing in the near future.

Edit: New "Inside Ring Of Honor" video... now hyping a match that isn't happening.


New sig coming soon.

Regarding what everyone's discussing: I forget that WWE has more than one show. And, the next show that comes to mind is NXT. They need to put that stuff online somewhere. I see bits and pieces every other month, and I'm interested.

Let's all start watching and commenting more on ROH/PWG/TNA, then.



I support this.

The current will always be WWE because that's what a lot of people know/have fond memories of/etc. From my experience here, there has always been a strong flow of TNA, ROH, and smaller promotions, but I think it's become a stronger push in the last year or so.

I'm waiting for my PWG stuff to ship/arrive, so I'm outta PWG things to talk about. ;) I bitched about ROH's production and commentary issues, but I generally enjoy their product, and try to comment on it every week. TNA has earned my praise for some time now. It'll be interesting to see how they conclude this chapter of the Aces and Eights angle. Hopefully they learned their mistakes from the mishandling of the nWo angle. Dunno how I'd wrap it up, tho.

A big problem with the WWE is it seems like somewhere along the line when the WWE went PG they decided only good guys (faces) could succeed and the bad guys (heels) had to fail and look weak.



I have said this before but I'll say it again. WWE forgot how the face and heel dynamic works. I think some blame goes to their creative team. They need more people who know wrasslin. I think I read that WWE changed it up recently, and having Triple H assume some responsibility back there is for the better.

And who would really want to rock the boat when it's the only boat in the water?

I think it's due to her just getting added to their Alumni section of their site.

I just finished watching the next few weeks of ROH TV thanks to ROH offering them on their site for $1.99 an episode. The 5/4 episode that will air on TV the weekend of the next iPPV is well worth watching as it has two fucking fantastic matches on the show. Michael Elgin vs "Machine Gun" Karl Anderson followed up with Davey Richards vs Kyle O'Reilly.

New sig coming soon.
