you know the drill. Picks lock at the first eligible match on Sunday.

https://tinyurl.com/OKPWHIAC

edit: oh yeah, I should do a leaderboard update. Things are settling down for me after a big move so I'll be able to update more often.

Oak27 out in front with Af-1 and Max_Ptah on his heels.

Oak, Tiger, and KC all tied for the Summerslam win.



Also, I'm going to BOLA this weekend!

Do they want Charlotte to have the belt for Evolution, or do they want the moment of her winning the title back for the fade-out? Joe's been doing great work, and could really shake up the main event scene on Smackdown, but AJ has been a safe pair of hands with that belt. New Day are great, and Rusev's pushes always get halted before he lights the world up, but at the same time, New Day don't really NEED the titles to be awesome, and the crowd LOVE the whole Rusev Day deal.

Mind-boggling too that the two secondary titles aren't being defended. Thanks to the based god for a short card and all that, but the Revival could have done the job to Strowman's goons -- even by DQ so you can still set up, idk, Shield and Angle versus Braun, Drew, Ziggler and Bray/Corbin for Survivor Series.

I was convinced Joe was going to take the title in this feud but now I'm coming round to the idea that Miz will be the one to dethrone AJ setting up for DB at Mania.

Becky/Charlotte is again a really tough one!

My gut is this, but also Becky is getting cheered right now so maybe they want that to be the big Evolution moment. I think the most effective move for (what seem to be) their long-term plans is:

A) Have Charlotte and Becky have an even match where Charlotte has to resort to putting her feet on the ropes to win.

B) Have Becky win the title at Evolution and get those cheers.

C) At Survivor Series Ronda beats Becky.

D) Charlotte gets the title back in December or January.

E) Charlotte and Ronda headline Mania 35.


New Day are great, and Rusev's
>pushes always get halted before he lights the world up, but at
>the same time, New Day don't really NEED the titles to be
>awesome, and the crowd LOVE the whole Rusev Day deal.

I'd prefer a Rusev Day win here, but I think they finally pull the trigger on kicking Aiden out of the group. Then again, they've teased the Sasha/Bayley feud about a million times and haven't pulled the trigger, so who knows?

>Mind-boggling too that the two secondary titles aren't being
>defended.

Right? The IC title I kinda get cause these dudes keep distracting Rollins (though I'd like to see more open challenges on Raw), but it feels like Shinsuke has been off TV since he won the damn title. More than that, no one else on the SD roster cares about chasing that title.

And Summerslam was the first PPV I watched since Mania. And I’ve watched Smackdown 2-3 times for the first time since last fall.

She’s boring. Boring talker, boring in the ring, small moveset. Ken Shamrock was never pushed above everyone else. He had his niche and it was cool enough. That should be the goal for Ronda. Once the novelty wears off there’s gotta be some substance.

Sasha, Bayley, and Asuka should all be higher on the card. Maybe some of these new women too.

And maybe even Bliss and Carmella. Not the greatest wrestlers but at least they can talk and wrestle actual matches(sell, so more than 2 moves, interact with the crowd effectively, etc.)

The Brock formula where the MMA person squashes the opponent using the same 2 moves and sells nothing is so awful.

You admittedly haven't watched.

At Mania her match stole the show and she was a true star in the ring.

Her match vs Nia at MITB was great, what makes her work in the ring is she actually knows how to make a sell look real.

She sucks on the mic for sure and hopefully that can be worked on, but her matches feel like big deals and she has a natural it factor in the ring.

I tried to hate her in WWE but she's a star.

when the rest of the division wears much glossier stuff that plays better with the lighting and cameras. It's essentially the female version of Stone Cold's no-nonsense shooter boots and black trunks, but it stands out even more because NO ONE else does that with their gear.

Yeah, not much.

Honestly remember Stephanie’s antics and incredible amount of cheating more than anything. It was an entertaining match and Ronda did her part, but I thought that one was a great team effort led by the heels.

>Her match vs Nia at MITB was great, what makes her work in the
>ring is she actually knows how to make a sell look real.

Will check for that now that I’ve got the Network again.

>She sucks on the mic for sure and hopefully that can be worked

She’s an impressive athlete. I hated that Bliss squash at SS.

>I tried to hate her in WWE but she's a star.

I’ve got no problem with her. Hope I can like her in WWE. I’ll give that Nia match a shot.

27. "After the HBK/Taker promo a few weeks ago..."
In response to Reply # 26


  

          

I fantasy booked that Michaels would cost Taker the match to Hunter so Taker challenges HBK at Mania which Michaels eventually accepts on the condition that Taker puts his career on the line. Ultimately I figured it would be Taker's official retirement match.

That Saudi money is real though. Can't think how much they're paying him for it. Brock too.

Give two awesome wrestlers time to tell a story, give it the simple build of “who’s better” and let them go. Even the run-in was great because both guys had priors with the dickheads (and I mean that in the nicest way possible - those dickheads are great)that did it.

In response to Reply # 31


  

          

Don't get me wrong, I loved the match and think NXT is the best thing going, but it's way different putting on a great 20-25 minute match in a 60 minute show than it is in a 180 minute show.

NXT does a way better job of telling stories and making you care about feuds, no doubt there, but outside of that part you really can't compare the product to the main roster product because it's just apples and oranges.

33. "yeah, but those matches are also part of a 4 hour taping. "
In response to Reply # 32


  

          

So the live crowd, that's creating the feedback loop for the wrestlers, is having a similar experience to a crowd sitting there for Raw.

Yes, for the TV audience later, it's half the show, which makes the show awesome. I get that.

But to your other point, it boggles the mind how NXT can switch people in and out and keep stories fresh while Raw just condenses and consolidates everything around two factions all the damn time. Even if they did something as rigid as split each roster into A group and B Group, and just alienated groups every week, it would open up opportunities for guys that Kreative "can't find anything for." And it would keep the established guys fresh if they cut their bookings in half.

In response to Reply # 39


  

          

Like what they're doing teaming Gedo with Jay White but not blowing their load by having it with Okada yet. I expect them to go over.

Golden Lovers match seems legit too, but I've seen them in Long Beach before. At this point I'd rather have a Omega main event that is one on one, but I think they treat these US shows as slightly below their big Japanese ones so I can't complain. Feels like they try to squeeze everyone on the card that they can. Keep keep going back to cali for em though. Happy they're teaming with ROH this April and coming to New York so I don't have to go as far.

Finally a live show at a reasonable time this weekend lol.

They've shown time and time again they don't care about long term storytelling and they'll quickly change someone between good and bad at will without any explanation. They fully expect the crowd to not care because most of them don't, or the audience they're trying to appeal to have short attention spans.

I know they do this fairly often, but I would expect it with someone that’s been floundering, not someone that was champion and the focus of the Smackdown women’s division all spring and summer.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

all of the SmackDown titles will be defended, and none of the Raw titles are at risk.




That bothers me.


Why put all of your title holders in tag matches against each other? Unless they are really gonna turn Ambrose, the match is useless. Rousey gets carried through another lame match. But of course we get the thoroughly entertaining geriatric extravaganza HHH vs Undertaker. YAWN

The SD matches are all retreads...Styles/Joe...Lynch vs Flair...Coon Day vs The Bar...and of course Nakamura vs...oh wait, he's not on the card for a second PPV in a row.

And they’re the only show on TV and the ratings don’t really change much so there’s no impetus to alter things

These international events are very clearly just glorified house shows, we learned that in Saudi Arabia

I thought maybe largely avoiding the product for months would freshen it up for me. Came back for Sunmerslam and have given Raw and Smackdown a shot. Nope. It’s just boring.

In response to Reply # 0
Tue Oct-09-18 10:10 PM by Cold Truth

  

          

Frankly, I don't think Ric is close as an in-ring performer (though Ric certainly eclipses Shawn as a character), and Shawn's only real comp in that department is Angle, Eddie, and AJ.

I was ok with the cheesy Dad-DX era because he was still a premier performer.

He had two definitive career chapters, that, if each were taken on their own, still sons most wrestlers entire careers.and still beats out plenty of greats.

When taken as a whole, his in-ring career has a ridiculously short list of competitors.

As far as career endings go, he went out at a point in his career, with a pair of matches that I have a hard time finding a parallel. Even his retirement participation in the HHH/Taker was done in a way that told story compelling enough to actually add to his career.

The only guys in the biz I revere on a level anywhere close to him are Angle and Bret.

I could live with the DX/NWO/Sting fuckery, though I hated it.

But coming back for an actual match, just to join forces with Hunter? In a match with Taker and Kane?

With this current roster, and a guy he accurately pegged as the right guy to come back for in Joe on the roster?

With a guy like Dolph there, damaged as he is?

I think he should stay fully retired from wrestling matches, either way, but this is the exact wrong thing to return for.

This shit is man-tits era Hogan, or couch leather man-tits Ric Flair levels of unwanted, at least for me.

In response to Reply # 73


  

          

Flair didn't get the chance that Shawn did in his late 30s and 40s to steal the show, because the show was all about the nWo, and if they weren't on screen, it was about the other characters wondering where the nWo was. (Plus, he might have been coasting at that time).

Also, agree that this is just dumb dumb dumb.

In response to Reply # 73


  

          

Clearly it isn't going to happen now but his prediction was that Michaels would come back and have a match with Ciampa at Takeover for Mania weekend. He put out a good case about if he ever came back then NXT is where his heart would lay seeing as those are the guys he's now working with all the time and it's something that would make a lot of sense.

I don't know if that match (or an NXT match in general) was ever on the table but it would've been amazing if it were the case.

I'm actually becoming really worried about the influence of that Saudi dollar - apparently that pay day is what's brought him out of retirement. They're practically bookers now.

didn't know if it was true or not.

The current rumour is that they've offered 20 million to have The Rock appear at the show next year as CHAMP. No idea on whether that's true but time will tell I guess. Thinking about it, why wouldn't they pay loads to at least see Rock in the ring?!

I'd be totally happy with Michaels coming back to be the old head that NXT talent has to beat to get the final go-ahead. Especially the way they're booking Adam Cole as a thorn in Regal's side, setting up new HBK against old HBK would be a delight.

I think they're setting up HBK vs HHH for Mania, which could be done very well but we don't need to see. I'd like to see Michaels vs. someone on the active roster. AJ would be ideal but there are a lot of good candidates.

I'm skeptical, but at least he's in 1000x better shape than those two were.

That was done to death from 2002-2004. I just don’t see any point in revisiting that now. I agree, if HBK wrestles beyond this geriatric division tag match, it should be against one of the many younger wrestler that can go and that would benefit from it.

...is how Triple H and these Attitude era guys LOVED pumping the story of WWE being a competitive land of opportunity in the late 90s/early 2000s, while WCW shoved Hogan and Flair down the throats of the audience

the other night they showed a graphic of everyone who had qualified for the "World Cup"...dogg, it was Cena, Orton, Jeff Hardy, and Kurt Angle

But it's also taking up more time on Raw than everything but the Shield angle. Granted, it's been well-written whereas most of Raw is not, but for me it takes a bit of the air out of it when the active roster is as talented as it's ever been.

If they're going to test out true intergender wrestling (because a) cmon, you KNOW we're not leaving Rousey/HHH on the table for Mania and b) that's GOTTA be what the MMC was building toward), that whole NXT opening segment is the place to start.

2) God DAMN was that Ricochet/Dunne/Cole match great.

Chikara and LU have both had female champions and it was great. There was even a indie show mania weekend with a theme of all intergender matches. They're always well-booked, don't make the guy look like shit, and rarely come across as an unfair fight.

Me and my friends constantly fantasy book a build to Charlotte winning the WWE or Universal title. It'd make for a fantastic Mania moment, would provide great publicity, and would make a bigger statement than all the "firsts" they keep touting*. I don't think she'd look out-of-place at all against most of the top guys. Just don't book Brock and Braun to throw around ladies all willy nilly and you'll be fine. It'd open up a lot of possibilities, even for the smaller women who they'd never put up against the Romans of the world. Can you imagine a Sasha vs. Finn feud? Could be very entertaining.

*it'd piss off Saudi royalty though so they'll never do it

It’s really not that big of a thing. Obviously you can’t have Alexa Bliss vs. Brock Lesnar or something(lol).

But Charlotte vs. Daniel Bryan? Or something where the size difference isn’t too crazy? Why not?

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

because they are doing the old folks rebirth on the Evolution card for the ladies.

You have Sasha, Bayley, Asuka, Naomi, Ember Moon, and a boatload of younger talent, and they headline with Trish Stratus, Lita, and the Bellas??It's bad enough that they put the belt on Rousey for no other reason than her name is Rousey, but to go out of your way to shit on the entire womens' roster makes no sense to me at all. They worked hard to shed the "Diva" image, to be recognized as wrestlers, then celebrate it by going to the retirement home and bringing in the Diva era stars...SMH.

I really have no interest in this PPV unless they announce some serious matches, and I've only sen four matches announced so far (RAW title, SD title, Mae Young final, and Bliss/Thickie James vs the Geezers). For a PPV announced months ago, they seem to be very last minute on putting this together.


Am I nuts??

In response to Reply # 102


  

          


Trish Stratus wrestling in 2018 is not as stupid as a DX vs Taker/Kane match. In theory, getting so many people involved in such a landmark show makes sense.

My issue is just that all of these girls today are *way* better than Trish Stratus or any of her peers were. Like, Ivory was good...but Charlotte is the best talent in the company. At no point could you have ever made that kind of claim for Lita or Trish Stratus. Even AJ Lee, I know people loved her, but she doesn't hold a candle to Becky Lynch or Asuka or Charlotte in the ring.

So my gripe is not that they're trotting out all of these women from years ago. It's that, if we're being honest, those women weren't really that special to begin with...and asking them to go in these big spots when they haven't gone consistently in years just confuses me.

PS: if they don't somehow acknowledge Chyna as part of this show that's bogus. For all the credit they give Lita and Trish Stratus, Chyna was the first true female attraction on the show.

And Charlotte's whiffing-ass moonsault keeps her from being the best IMO. It'd be one thing if it was a special thing, but she does it EVERY DAMN MATCH and always lands standing next to her opponent. Becky's also much more natural on the mic.

Me and the kid are going, should be a blast. We did a Ring of Honor show over the weekend in Baltimore so this has been one hell of a wrestling week for us.

I really hope The Rock shows up but with Undertaker being there I'm cool with that too. I do hope there are enough matches though and not just fluff the entire time.

the ring work was good from day one, that wasn't gonna be the issue

but she showed some actual fire, had articulate points, and got the program over by herself. And she's RIGHT. She's been here like 9 months and she's eons better than either of the Bellas have ever been.

In response to Reply # 107


  

          

Rousey does nothing for me.

Full disclosure: I hold something against her for being given the title basically without any singles matches, using only a couple of tag matches where she was carried and her Strikeforce/UFC rep.

Now, that said...she doesn't impress me in ring. She is athletic, so the few moves she uses look decent, but the move set is extremely limited, and she is stiff IMO. There is no storytelling in her matches...she shows up smiling, then instantly puts on her grumpy face, judo throw, armbar, tap out, then smiley face returns. Her emotions aren't convincing to me, very much contrived.

On the mic...ugh. she can't speak two lines without stumbling, and she sounds like a 10 year old that has to recite a speech...rushing through it with no authenticity. Last night's promo with the Bellas (I was there in the cheap seats) with the exception of the line about Cena bedroom door, was terrible. The Bellas didn't help her any, because they stink too, but man, if you barely work in ring and suck on the mic, why are you the champion?? Asuka came in undefeated with a streak that lasted forever, after holding (and never losing) the NXT belt, she was super over, and she couldn't get a sniff at the title. I'm guessing that is partly Vince and his "anyone not white has no shot to headline" mode, but damn, Asuka did all of that and is now almost buried while Rousey tap dances in and grabs the belt from Bliss.

I think Rousey could develop to be good if she trained and worked at it, but I have no reason to think that she'll be around for more than a year, so if this is what she is, this makes the womens division look weak and shades out all the hard workers on the roster.

Respectfully I have to disagree with you about Mania. I give unlimited credit to Hunter, who I imagine put the whole thing together, for acknowledging the money moment was to let Rhonda go crazy on him but she was fantastic in that match. From the moment she took the tag and charged across the ring I was sold.

Appreciate you're not a fan but I really think she did deserve a lot of credit for her work in that Mania match.

It's insane. And Baszler says that Jessamyn Duke is even better than her, so man, once the shoot Horsewomen are all in, it could be great.

That said, I fully expect Baszler/Sane to steal the show.

I find it difficult to argue with a lot of your points but I do think there's a line between her in-ring work and how she's booked.

I really like her in the ring. I get the smiling thing irritates a lot of people but as far as I can see, as soon as the bell rings, she's all go. Her facial expressions, her selling, it all comes together as being focused and respectful. I definitely wouldn't have given her the title within her first year. She didn't specifically need it - her matches/feuds generate enough interest in themselves and I'm always a believer that the title should be a long and arduous road for any (new) competitor.

She shouldn't have squashed Bliss - Bliss has worked hard over the last few years and deserved better than that. Again though, that's down to the booking and not her.

That's Vince though - Vince really doesn't help with that mindset non-wrestling fans have that wrestling is fake and the guyrs aren't tough. Every celebrity who steps up to a wrestler nearly always wins - Arnold beat Hunter, Joe Mangaliano (sp?) beat up Miz, Flo Rida bullied Heath, Will F'n Shatner beat down Road Dogg... then Brock comes in with the "legitimate" UFC background, ends the streak, ethers Cena, then dominates the roster for like 4 years. Rhonda hasn't been that bad but she was always going to own the women like Brock owned the men. That mindset doesn't help anyone in my opinion.

I also 100% agree that she needs more work - I appreciate NXT would've been a bit weird for her to go to considering how big a name she is but it would've helped her tremendously.

Saying all that though, I think she's great. She should be competing weekly though as it will only help her, and please stop having her beat up security guards - I think this is the third time now?!

121. "First main roster show I've been to in years"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I've done a lot of wrestling this year. NJPW, PWG, NXT, ROH.

I will say this, the main roster show knocks production out of the park. The sound, the presentation, the showmanship.


I did enjoy the actual wrestling from the other promotions way more. I mean WAY more. It was hard trying to get into match quality after just going to a ROH show a few days before. That being said, I knew what I was getting into so I expected it to be style over substance and I was honestly satisfied. The kid and I damn near lost our voices at the show and all and all we had a great time.

They talked about it in GD last week on a post asking about things you're shocked people are still into.

I go to quite a few sporting events a year, and nothing gets the crowd more hype than wrestling. Football you may have the team entrance and the music coming from the PA system to get the crowd hype, but most of the people you're there to see don't really engage the crowd because they're supposed to just play the game.

Wrestling is all about crowd involvement and it'll honestly make you feel tired after the entire thing is over if they're getting you hype enough to engage them back. It's my favorite thing to attend live.

126. "crowds make a difference for sure "
In response to Reply # 121


  

          

Thought last night’s crowd was really energetic throughout. Part of that is it was a special show, part of it is the show is only two hours (cannot be understated how different/better) that is

Was surprised at the response Batista got. What an ovation.

Tag titles match was great. And while I don’t need any more Big Show, it does sort of make sense that The Bar would hire someone to level the playing field in a feud against The New Day

The “Yes” entrance still blows my mind all of these years later

I think Nakamura’s offense actually hurts. Less because it’s “strong style” and more so because I just think it’s delibrately sloppy. I loved watching him. He’s selling a character the entire time he’s out there. He snarls and walks around and swings his arms all in character, a lot of guys could learn from how well Nakamura just moves around. It’s a shame he hasn’t had a truly great match since Sami Zayn, but he’s a presence.

Undertaker is officially just a hack. Is that blasphemous? The equivalent to going to see The Rolling Stones in concert now. Takes 5 minutes to get to the ring, says “RIP”, walks away for five more minutes. For a guy who everyone reveres as the pro’s pro, he’s exiting about as non-gracefully as Hogan did.

And crusierweight wrestling, that hyper speed X Division style, does nothing for me. It’s athletic choreography at this point. None of the offense looks realistic, none of the selling lasts. I hated it.

I mean I understand he wrestles a very limited scheduled. But a 5 minute entrance to the ring just to say "Rest in Peace" and walk away is a bit absurd. Cut a cool ass promo or something. He could have talked for about 5 minutes and I would have been happy. My daughter sat there like "that's it?" after seeing his entrance live for the first time in her life. I guess I don't blame him either for picking up a paycheck just to come out and spit 3 words and bounce. I would have much rather had someone else there if I knew that's all we were going to get.

Should have quit when the Streak ended (for my taste he could have stopped a year or two before that). Him coming out to get beat up on special matches is just pitiful, almost as bad as Flair was yesterday...a sad caricature of himself.

Last night was a perfect example why WWE needs to stop with the old folks reunion tours. Flair looked borderline senile, undertaker gets slower by the day, and now...I pray I'm wrong...Batista looks like he's gonna come back for a match. UGH
