Not even anything to do with that so much as they don't speak perfect fluent English...
Neither do Southerners according to Vince, but he loosened up for AJ.

I was shocked Nakamura saw some spotlight, regardless of resume, I figured they would have sent him the way of Itami based on their principals.
Not just southerners, by the way. Before putting her on the air with the Tamara Murphy news reporter gimmick, Vince sent Tammy Sytch to accent school to try to get rid of her New Jersey accent.

Is that true? She didn't have a super thick accent in SMW or anything

Heard it on a podcast, but the guys in question seem pretty reliable (one of them is David Bixenspan, who is a lawyer, so he tends to avoid making false statements).

I may be the only person who thinks this BUT, I think a Young Boy should either win or have a strong standing in Best of the Super Juniors at least once.

I get that it's all about tradition and taking your lumps, but you know when a Young Boy is in a BOSJ that's one guy you don't have to think about winning, and aren't come from behind, out of nowhere big wins a part of real sports?

I agree in part. The general rule should be no young-boys allowed, but at the same time, if one is stuck in there, you need to at least let him look really strong in all of his losses just so that the tournament doesn't appear unfair because one block got a tomato can and the other didn't.

But picking a random kid off the indies to go 1-8 would have been better, IMO.

I may be the only one who thinks this, BUT....Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre are one of the most enjoyable characters on WWE TV at the moment.

Should Shane McMahon be in the spotlight? No. Is he any good in the ring? Also no. But does he understand how to be a heel? Yes. He is the most believable heel they have at the moment, and I find him immensely entertaining, mostly the "bully the ring announcer into giving me a special introduction". I also think Drew McIntyre being "Test Mark 2.0" is a pretty solid use of an intimidating looking guy like him.

For someone with Test's level of talent this would be fine. For Drew... he should be the f*cking world champion.

Fair, but I don't think anyone on the modern roster with the equivalent of Test's talent would also have the mind for the business to pull it off as well as Drew does.

From what I gather, it was supposed to be a Diesel/HBK thing when he was with Ziggler where he eventually broke off and won titles and things. I get the same vibe again here with Shane.

My only issue with Shane is that by the amount they're feeding us that somebody back there thinks it's better than what it is. We didn't get Stone Cold segments more than once or twice a night... I'm having trouble coming up with ANYONE that was featured so heavily and consistently...

He's literally the whole show and involved with every aspect of it from top to bottom: Reigns, McIntyre, Elias, The Revival, The Miz. That covers an awful lot of ground lol.

Hunter/Steph/Rollins/Kane in 2015. Basically, whichever Authority members were booked in the "storyline of the night" for a given episode of Raw.

And the similarities are, authority figures that have overstayed their welcome on my TV lol. I’m kind of surprised they haven’t figured it out yet, but also not surprised...
