Re: NWK Reviews Wrestlemania 6

As for the post-match, I can totally see the argument that Hogan took the spotlight, and I guess to a point he could had done it better like Joe crowning Austin Aries, but I like when stuff like this happens after big title changes. A lot of the criticism I see online was that Hogan crowned Warrior...

Re: NWK Reviews Wrestlemania 6

It goes to show how much Vince would stick to his guns back then... Andre, immobile and crippled, was still a draw and still had a spot on this show. And how good WWE is at smoke-and-mirroring stuff like that, and doing so in a way that they can tell a coherent story As for all the "why not have th...

Re: All Time: Best "King" gimmick?

If we're talking gimmick strictly, I can't vote for Minoru Suzuki or Triple H. Regal's reign was too short to really see how good it could get. So i'm gonna have to go with the only one that wasn't a a forced thing and made it work for years. Jerry Lawler. Honorable mention to Matt Taven, as 'The K...

NWK Reviews Wrestlemania 6

April 1, 1990, Toronto, Ontario, Canada Intro [/b] Wrestlemania 6 is a show I've always been curious about, as it's one of the earliest examples of WWF's biggest shows being used to crown new stars and end long standing runs. So let's get it done and see if any of this holds up! Intro: Warrior and H...

All Time: Best "King" gimmick?

I'm in the process of reviewing Wrestlemania 6 (expect it up today) and I came to conclusion that Macho King might be the best "King" gimmick in wrestling. But I got to thinking about all the great kings, and I love some of the best ones (King Regal, King Booker, Jerry "The King" Lawler) for differe...

Re: Update on CassXL & nZo and ROH

The fact that Enzo and Cass were together blew it for me. Cass actively disavowed Enzo after the allegations hit, and while I think Cass has some potential (not with the name 'CassXL' though, fucking Christ) I never want to see Enzo again

Re: 2 Cents: The Viking Experience

I think Gallows & Anderson tell us all we need to know when it comes to the Vikings. One of the top teams in the world, made their names elsewhere, WWE has nothing for them and will stop anything they get going. The Bar, The Bludgeon Bros, Usos, New Day... all of these guys are Vince ideas. To give...

Re: Vince to reveal 'biggest acquisition in SmackDown Live history' tonight

at least rumble is 'road to WM' stuff, this is not building to anything except the Saudi Arabia show. I'd personally keep him off TV until the jump to FOX and then move him to smackdown for the ratings pop This. Also why would you give a network you're leaving anything that big? What network are th...

Re: Vince to reveal 'biggest acquisition in SmackDown Live history' tonight

Rematch with Seth to headline MITB. I agree that it's not a good use of Brock because MITB sells itself, but I'd make the same argument about the Rumble and they always have him there for that. at least rumble is 'road to WM' stuff, this is not building to anything except the Saudi Arabia show.

NWK reviews DGUSA Enter the Dragon 2012

(July 29, 2012, Chicago IL) Intro [/b] I was watching the Table for 3 with Adam Cole, Ricochet, and Johnny Gargano, which included some footage of this show. I remember being desperate to watch some DGUSA back in the day. It didn't help that one of my best friends was high on Johnny's heel run. So I...

Re: 2 Cents: The Viking Experience

WWE doesn’t have the ability to handle this idea the way they need to to make it believable. What would happen is someone would come out and say “LOL these guys think they’re Vikings, let’s point and laugh at them.” And then they’d get eaten. I don't see that as very likely, big monster tag teams a...

THIS! I think there's some heat to be derived from that. They're two big tough guys, but they're so up their own asses about it that they compare themselves to warriors that conquered entire countries, and use that to excuse being heels.

War Raiders felt like they were loving their heritage. Viking Experience sounds like either time travelers or role players. They'll get really over with the LARPing society. THIS!
