Re: A heel promotion

Baszler didn't have that effect for me because I didn't feel like she was any less of a badass having lost (I assume this is her feud with Kairi? And if I remember correctly, didn't she win it right back?) And then she started venturing into the stereotypical heel role with the Horsewomen backing h...

Re: A heel promotion

I'd like to see a heel take on a "redemption story", or a quest to prove oneself after a big loss. We see it a lot in babyfaces and it works out well, but seeing a heel go on a run of domination saying "it seems you've all forgotten who I am, let me remind you". Baszler. Baszler didn't have that ef...

Re: A heel promotion

New Japan is kind of doing an abbreviated version of that in the G1 with New Japan, and wXw seems to be heading that way with The Crown in their tag division. I'm struggling to think of any full-blown real-life versions of it off the top of my head other than arguably Mark Henry's big heel world ti...

Re: A heel promotion

THIS. Which is just one of the reasons why the Gabe Sapolsky 2004-2008 "golden era" or ROH and the 2010-2011 Pearce/Delirious eras are two of my favorite eras of any promotion ever, and why I hold Gabe as a booker in such high regard. One of the favorite ideas for a wrestler character I've ever hea...

Re: A heel promotion

I like heels who aren't about cheating and weaseling and things like that, but more like just dominating whomever they feel like, like a train just rolling through the roster and anyone in the way gets flattened. Or heels that bend the rules sometimes just generally just win because they're better,...

Re: 2 Cents: WWE Network Update

What I mean by scummy is that they've been giving us Wrestlemania for this price for how long now, just to take it away and charge more. If that was the intention from the start, they maybe should have had the tier structure in place upon release (I bet they didn't because that would delay the relea...

Re: 2 Cents: WWE Network Update

content is definitely the difference in tiers, from the programming point of view, it's a pain in the butt to restrict functionality per user level. What i'm curious about is if they're hoping that come next year's WM, people will be already accustomed to the tiers and make WM a VIP level show only...

Re: 2 Cents: WWE Network Update

I messed with it a little bit last night. I don't care for it yet, but I'm also not a fan of "different"... it's definitely different, and even in trying to keep an open mind I'm struggling to find differences that make it "better". So far, I feel like the update was designed and green-lit by peopl...

2 Cents: WWE Network Update

I can't stand it! They took away the markers for when matches start/end, took away the autoplay features, and the list of videos it suggests for you once you're done with whatever you're watching isn't even related most of the time. The whole thing looks like some high school student's multimedia pr...

Re: Trish Stratus to face Charlotte Flair at WWE SummerSlam

You know, as much as the lack of a story build to this bugs me, this should still be pretty good. At the Evolution PPV, Trish felt like she barely skipped a beat (she was far better than Lita IMO), so I’m looking forward to it.

Re: I'm SOOOOO Happy I Skipped This Week's Raw

Most Seth Rollins promos lately leave me an immediate feeling of "Oh here we go with this fuckin' shit again...", and that's especially the Broc Lesnar ones. Agreed. He's definitely on track to hit Dolph Ziggler territory in a year or two. This legitimately makes me sad. Man’s fantastic at what he ...

Whoever suggested this name should have been fired on the spot.
That’s exactly what I thought. I think this might even be as bad as Great Balls of Fire.

How hard can it really be to come up with one-off names for network specials?

Re: BRM Reviews the 7/10/2019 NXT

I can absolutely see Shayna being in a Sonya Deville situation before long. The fear is real, but for what it's worth, but my hope rests on the fact that nobody in NXT has been booked as dominantly as Shayna except Charlotte. An argument could be made for Asuke, and while we can all agree that call...

Re: BRM Reviews the 7/10/2019 NXT

I like that setup with the ladies. It feels natural, and Shayna has really done all that she can in NXT so the only thing left that feels organic is a move to the main roster, and I think they would benefit from a heel like her. Absolutely, especially if they brought her in similarly to her NXT run...

I was never into Drew in his first run, but when he came back, it was like he was a completely different person, and suddenly I'm into him. Hear me out now... At the end of that run, yes - 3 Man Band, I thought Drew was going to make it work. Everything they did was cheesy comedy, but in the back o...

Re: John Hennigan Now A Free Agent

See. This is what I mean. I think that if you gave Alexa a submission finisher that could be built to throughout the match instead of the Generic DDT(tm) her matches would vastly improve because there is something to build towards. I put the blame on the agents and WWE TV's general lack of focus on...
