WWE is releasing HHH and Stephanie workout DVDs.  The airbrushing on the covers is horrible.

WAY too much Team 3D stuff, which I'm surprised wasn't trimmed down since they just used the show as a way to try and get a GFW/NJPW gig. The HOF came off as so low-end with Bully in a knock-off Affliction shirt and Devon in an unironed, untucked button-down. YOU'RE GETTING INDUCTED TO A HALL OF FAME, at least attempt to dress up in something beyond a casual stroll to 7-11. The W-1 tag was quite good, as was the X Title match. Team 3D's match wasn't good, but was still better than the main event. It was way too short a match for a main event in theory, but was already bad and just poorly laid-out. Velvet's match got over huge, and I could see her becoming a regular in W-1 since she was one of hte most popular acts on the show. Muta's lack of reaction was astonishing, and really sad. Hogan's final match at least got a good reaction at BFG, and this crowd should be conditioned to like him (and granted it's not his last match) but they were SILENT beyond two guys chanting Mu-ta.

 

I was able to watch BFG yesterday and actually agree with most of these points.  When what has traditionally been the biggest show of the year looks like just another house show, that is an incredible letdown.  It was especially disappointing considering how entertaining the majority of the NYC tapings were this summer.  If BFG is a precursor of things to come then TNA is doomed.  Here's hoping they can recover from that abysmal show.

There's something really off about the proportions between the 3 of them even though the heights seem right.

 

Reminds me of the odd out of scale Umaga and Sean O'Haire models from years' past.

I don't know.. I don't mind the models, I think they look great, and I love that they used actual "We're here!" footage. Their entrances remind me of the old Smackdown 1 and 2 entrances.. but I guess there's really nowhere else for the camera to go considering everything else is dark.

 

But man, that crowd. That crowd is awful. When the lights come up and Bray stands out of his chair, almost complete silence. Who is he, Rob Conway during the "Just look at me!" gimmick? The crowd is completely dead. The sound doesn't match the movement of the crowd when he gets in the ring. They're all super excited and cheering, yet the sound is booing. Weird.

 

 

Also, I'm sure models in the past have done it before, but it was really noticable how they smiled, blinked, etc. Makes the game feel much more alive in comparison to past years.

 

I wonder if I'll be able to edit entrances and have the camera focus on them from the side as they walk down the aisle. Love that shot.

From Jericho's new book:

 

While on a plane, McMahon made a snide remark to Kingston, saying, “maybe one day you’ll get over.” Jericho wrote about Kingston looking visibly infuriated, and catching up with Kingston upon departing the plane. Jericho told Kingston to return to McMahon, and challenge him to a fight. At first, Kingston seemed to think everything was one big rib. Though, with Jericho having built a close relationship to McMahon, he knew McMahon, a man with great seriousness, was not joking.

 

Kingston would heed Jericho’s advice, asking McMahon if he had a problem with him. The two would throw verbal jabs each other’s way, eventually leading to a physical collision. It began when, out of nowhere, McMahon attempted a double leg takedown of Kingston. The two then proceeded to wrestle around for a bit.

Is that the incident that led to the Kofi/Orton scenario a few years back? If so, Kofi needs to go back and fight someone because that was some good stuff.

I saw that The Price Is Right clip today. I wasn't familiar with him, but from the video, he seemed like a good guy. Pretty entertaining and charismatic.

THIS SHOW WAS FUCKING UNBEARABLE until Foley saved it in the third hour by finally being able to put the Shield guys over. Granted, he couldn't do it in the ring, but he brought whatever A game he's got left to make these guys seem like the future of the company. Santa getup hurt it though - WWE's paying him and should've prevented that from making air even if it did allow Vince to get his jollies by having JBL bury him for it.  Main event wasn't much until the finishing sequence - LOLed at Orton cursing due to the table and landing a nice RKO after the rebound lariat. The post-match curb stomp to Orton gave away the main event finishes, and rendered the whole show effectively meaningless in the process, but it should be a fun show.

Brock Lesnar is perfectly capable of competing and he would be medically cleared to do so, but he just doesn't feel like it. He has to go prance with ponies on that particular Sunday so it's all good.

Cesaro-Dolph is over the IC Title - by definition, it's meaningless given how WWE has booked that champion for at least half a decade.

 

TNA redefined running in place with a turtle-esque trot tonight. They had a tag tourney that furthered very little and had EY teaming with Spud, who alternated between being on the roster when EC3 talked about him, to off the roster when Spud talked about himself, then on the roster when EY talked about him before the match, then off of it when Tenay was confused, then back on the roster when he came out. EY and Spud against EC3 and Tyrus MAIN EVENTED the show - luckily, it was sponsored by Five Hour Energy and not a site shilling porno or sex toys at a slight discount when you enter a promo code. They started trying to get EY over off of Bryan, and are now talking about the I'M WITH SPUD movement. I'm part of it because A - he's awesome and B - I have a cat named Spud. The Roode-Lashley contract signing over-delivered thanks to Roode and MVP delivering excellent promos - I'm looking forward to the show just for the main event.

Probably because the thread has barely had new posts from less than 10 people in the past few weeks, so why bother? I only even check it once or twice a week now as opposed to daily just a few months ago.

I was actually just thinking about this earlier today.  While I agree that what the thread title is is essentially meaningless I think I'll go ahead and start a new thread with a general topic title.  The different thread titles were fun when we had a significantly higher number of people posting but I think a general topic title would be fine at this point.  Plus it will eliminate the inevitable discussion of when a new thread should be started.
