#12018583 Ultimate Warrior memorial wrestling thread 1959-2014

Posted by TooMuchCoolness on 18 August 2014 - 07:12 PM

Brock Lesnar is who would have been headlining the WWE for the past 10 years if he hadn't left. Cena and Lashley were second-rate replacements who were doing nothing but chasing after the ghost of Lesnar. 

 

I know some guys here didn't necessarily like how the match played out and I'm sure they would have preferred something with a bit more drama, a bit more competition, and a bit more of a moveset but for what this was: it was perfect. On one hand its the story of Lesnar being dominant, ending the streak, yada yada yada. That story we've had Heyman tell us a dozen times over on Raw and Smackdown.

 

The other story is the one I'm interested in. The one where John Cena got written off as being nothing but a chump. That's the one that satisfied me to no end yesterday. You know how long I've been waiting for that? 8 years. 8 long years of seeing this guy OVERCOME THE ODDS! That godawful insulting framing of Cena being controversial. The indestructibility of and protection of a guy who has been toxic to the lifeblood of professional wrestling.  All that vile and hatred I had of this performer came spewing out of me as I wanted Lesnar to go for blood. I wanted Cena hurt and gone. And that's the story Brock Lesnar gave me yesterday. 

 

And today I feel good. The sun is shining. The wind is fresh. And Cena is no longer the MAN in the WWE. Today is a better day for most professional wrestling fans than has been in years. It really is. We got what we wanted. We finally got what we wanted. And it feels GREAT.

 

As for the match itself: it was still beneath the classic Punk/Lesnar put on last year. Also below the previous Lesnar/Cena bout at Extreme Rules. But it was better than any other match Lesnar has put on since he came back and was easily the match of the night. 

 

Even as it continued there was a genuine sense of disbelief of what we were seeing. Is this real? Is this really happening? Is John Cena really going to be THIS manhandled? THIS dominated?!  That was the magic of the match. I still feel it right now. Like I can't believe it happened. So many times over the course of the past 9 years we've been told "This is it!" for Cena. He can't win! And time and time again he hits his shitty looking AA/FU or throws on his garbage looking STFU and gets the win (for the children of course!) 

And that's driven many of us away from the product. The staleness. The idea that no matter what happens the one constant will be that John Cena overcomes in the end. And so even as the match went on and on there was that feeling in the pit our stomachs, the fear, that said "Any minute now. Any second now. Cena is going to overcome the odds. Here it comes... here it comes..." because we had been conditioned to expect this out of Cena for years on end. 

And when the beating didn't stop. When Lesnar looked like he was only getting faster and stronger as the match continued. When he sat up to mock the Undertaker. When he started shuffling around from foot to foot in classic Lesnar fashion charging Cena to come at him head on even after eating an FU. When he hit that final F-5 and capped off the most crushing Main Event in the past 30 or more years we still sat in disbelief at what we had just seen. Almost in as much disbelief at having seen the streak come to an end. 

 

It's about damn time. Finally.

Stop taking wrestling so damn seriously. It's just scripted, silly, stupid wrestling. Cena will be back on top in no time. Remember when Rock beat him and Cena went back to his usual character form? Do you Cena critics actually read back the shit you type? "Toxic to the lifeblood of professional wrestling" Haha give me a break, kid. WWE CHOSE to have him as the long term main eventer because he had the passion for the business.

 

I like Lesnar, but he is in it just for the money. The guy is just lazy and wants the easy way out. He couldn't handle the extreme schedule so he left the company. Tried NFL, but found out he actually needs the talent and can't rely just on strength. Quit UFC after a few losses and went back to the drawing board.

eBay fees are pissing me off! I sold a game for $27.89 (Free Shipping) and with these fees:

 

$1.11 PayPal fee

$2.01 Shipping Fee

$2.79 Final Value Fee

 

and I'm left with only $21.98

 

It shouldn't be that much damnit
