Re: WWE consolidates creative team, Bruce Prichard to lead

Bruce Prichard is just an extension of Vince McMahon.

Re: BRM Reviews the 6/10/2020 Dynamite

I can't stand this Matt Hardy changing gimmick thing. This is NOT the "sports based presentation" Tony Khan offered us when opening AEW. It's WWE Lite. If he came out each week with a different gimmick, that's one thing, it's foley-esque. But to do it instantaneous makes a mockery of what AEW was su...

Re: BRM Reviews NXT TakeOver: In Your House

Rhea is someone who needs to be established by holding her title for a while. If she is called up soon and wins the belt by Summer Slam, dropping it before the Rumble so that she can be in the Rumble would be too early. Leaving her down in NXT also creates problems because I think she needs the win...

Re: BRM Reviews NXT TakeOver: In Your House

Considering Charlotte has a Raw title shot tonight tells me her NXT stint is done. They've been building Charlotte vs. Asuka up, but they had enough other things going on that I was hoping they'd hold off on it. With some hindsight, this booking hasn't been very good for Rhea. She needed to beat Ch...

Re: BRM Reviews NXT TakeOver: In Your House

I enjoy Killer Kross (and especially Scarlett Bordeaux). He’s great. He needs to go through a couple more and then focus on Adam Cole, get the NXT title. Dominate. Move on to Main Roster.

YES! This! ROH does this, too, and they need to stop. If you are a wrestling company and trying to market yourself as an alternative to WWE, you absolutely NEED to stay away from certain WWE buzzwords, and "title opportunity" is at the top of the list? Behind actually using “wrestler” and “wrestlin...

Re: Cero Reviews AEW Double or Nothing 2020

It’s dawned a while after, but yeah, not ideal really. Luckily it hasn’t been picked up on! it was picked up immediately, talked about on some news sites, and for the most part, people were smart enough to realize that it wasn't done on purpose and that Matt Hardy was never actually drowned. It wou...

Re: NXT Talent Reportedly Instructed Over P.A. System To "Be More Lively" For Monday's RAW

Maybe, it just feels like it's such a negligible cost difference in it for the company. I agree, which makes it a bit more unsavory if that is what’s happening. It makes sense if you're worried about them possibly having COVID, having everyone bring their own lunch and not sharing serving utensils....

Re: BRM Reviews the 6/3/2020 Dynamite (meh)

"Title opportunity" is a phrase coined by Vince McMahon because he hates the word "shot" and annoyingly, it was used on AEW (and has crept in occasionally). I cannot stand this, because we all know it's a WWE-ism to not say "title shot". I want AEW to cease using this phrase immediately in fear of ...

Re: NXT Talent Reportedly Instructed Over P.A. System To "Be More Lively" For Monday's RAW

If they did this to actual fans, we'd all laugh.. But they're paying the people forming the crowd to do something, so maybe the delivery wasn't the best, but still an instruction from your bosses. I don't understand why they couldn't just set up two catering areas? set up two areas to have breaks? ...

Unfortunately Jinder, you were used by WWE as part of their pro-India agenda and you won't go back to the top until such a time as they re-visit this.

Taz's promo was the stand out part of the show for me. Just intense and awesome, I love this pairing. It feels like a fresh Heyman / Lesnar style relationship where we all know Taz has other duties in the company (occasional announcer etc.) but this is his own personal project. I like that. I found ...

Re: BRM Reviews the 6/3/2020 NXT

If you thought Hunter was portrayed as the hero. you watched it wrong.

He came out, gave him the contract, raised him arm and left him to have the spotlight, it wasn’t about “look what I’m doing for him” there was no accompanying speech, just a presentation that looked and felt very heartfelt.

Re: Rob Gronkowski no longer under WWE contract

The fact that anyone has won this title 36 times is a joke. It was fresh and funny when Crash Holly did it with the Hardcore title in the early 2000's and fit what they were trying to do. So far this has been used to get precisely nobody over and is just whored out to the occasional visiting celebri...

Re: WWE bans use of the buckle bomb

I think we can all agree it is a stupid move anyway. Nothing wrong with a perfectly good powerbomb. For the wrestler it's an unecessary risk for zero gain.
