BoD Daily Update

HHH Big on Soliciting Feedback From the Internet?

A WWE source has told Wrestlezone.com that HHH has been having WWE social media workers keep an eye on various online communities. It has also been reported that HHH is most intrigued by Reddit and its "r/squaredcircle" community. HHH is also said to be working on an AMA (ask me anything) with the site to let fans know that he is aware. A source also said that the idea of Sandow being the Miz's stunt double was taken in part of discussions that happened on wrestling message board websites.

Comments

  1. 1)A lot of companies are using this type of way to collect feedback now over standard surveys/focus groups. If there is a disconnect between HHH and Vince on creative direction, this might be a way to show him what's "really" going on.


    2)Wyatts missed their chance to be relevant awhile ago, I'd almost want to see what they can do as individuals.


    3)Not surprised to hear that at all.

    So, in regards to the first item, I just watched Raw on Hulu this morning and saw a sign with "r/squaredcircle" at some point during the show. That's a fairly random coincidence...


    Also, watching a 90-minute condensed version of the show is awesome. So much better than sitting through the whole thing.

  10. It's amazing what a missed opportunity the Wyatts have been. They're basically splitting the group up without having used them to do anything noteworthy. Pretty much a complete opposite of how The Shield was handled.

    ReplyDelete
  11. So much nostalgia that I almost kind of wish they'd make this for Android or something.


    I still have fond memories of taking Luger and Doink to the tag titles.

  12. Agreed. Hell, Futurama got more use out of Hedonismbot than WWE got out of the Wyatt Family.

  19. I'm not sure HHH really wants to know what the internet thinks of his wrestling product right now. Especially since he's sure to hear "you and your wife need to get the fuck off of my TV".

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh yeah and 4) NO MORE HEEL AUTHORITY FIGURES ON TV.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The Cena feud killed him dead and he needs to be rebuilt, for sure---- but the guy and the act got way fucking over and easily can again. They just need to not book the three of them as midcard goofs.


    But from the debut through Mania 30--- when the Wyatts were actually booked well, the crowds responded. This wasn't an example of the performers and teh act being shitty, it was just they got caught in the pattern of awful WWE booking. (And even with THAT they were still more over than most of what's on WWE TV these days.)

  27. I think Vince has moved on from them for whatever reason. Also the Jericho rub is more of a hindrance these days. I hope your holding your breath for Vince and his creative department to rebuild and push Wyatt? Because I've been playing that game with Ziggler for years and he's not getting anywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think that'd absolutely be my #1 wrestling wish. Just go a few years with authority figures not being a part of the TV show at all (save for the Jack Tunney 3 times a year style).



    Did you see teh Heyman/Steph/HHH segment last night? Why the fuck does Paul Heyman have to cower to The Authority. Him and Lesnar are the main event heels! Can't they be looked at as the biggest threats in the company? Isn't the cooler angle to watch the good guys team up to try and stop the Heyman Guys, as opposed to the good guys having to stop Heyman & Lesnar... as directed by the Authority.


    It's the biggest reason why heels never get over anymore, because they're never allowed to be as bad/powerful as the fucking couple in suits.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 30, 2014 at 12:07 PM

    Heyman was cowering from getting the shit kicked out of him again. LESNAR can be booked as a legit threat, but Heyman? He's just a very small man who could have easily been beaten to death by the people in that ring.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Bray's way way more talented of a prospect than Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler's fun in the ring but his personality and mic skills are pretty awful.


    If I was in charge I'd absolutely push Dolph and figure out a way around his limitations, but a guy like Bray would be much easier for creative to push than Dolph, in my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yeah this tired ass trope and the announcing are by far and away the two things that need to change the most in the wwe? Who and how they push is one thing, but killing the product with absolutely horrendous commentary and the evil boss thing need to end immediately.

  38. Well go check and see how long the Dungeon of Doom or the wizard/king Curtis had on top with this exact same gimmick. It goes for about a year and then it gets cycled away.

  40. But that's HIS role. He ain't gonna stand for abolishing that. He'd have to come out of retirement and be champion all the time again if he did.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Also, they did a bunch of "old school" Wyatt promos last night and they've been kept off TV for a few weeks now, so obviously something (relatively) big is being prepped for them. Not saying it'll work, cause who knows with WWE booking anymore, but I highly doubt that Bray and Luke Harper are being given up on in any way.

    If anything, they just fell victim to the brilliant "depush the new guys to keep them humble" scenario that befalls everyone except pretty much the Shield.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Meltzer went into it a bit more in detail. You can listen to it on the radio show link I posted below but they are either having Harper and Wyatt feud or they are just going their separate ways.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Basically they will just vote through how they thought it should have gone with comments on why.

    ReplyDelete
  44. IMO they shouldn't book "scary cult lunatics" like everyone else. It will destroy them.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Knowing our luck, one of HHH's minions will stumble upon this blog and read Vince Jordan's and John Edward's comments and tell their bosss that everything they do is simply marvelous.

    ReplyDelete
  48. No idea who the fuck Wizard King Curtis you keep bringing up is.


    Dungeon of Doom is a lazy comparison to the Wyatts in my opinion. A million times more cartoony, Kevin Sullivan absolutely sucks and looked about 2 feet tall, and nobody in that group could work in the slightest. The Wyatts weren't saying they were magical like the DoD or doing vignettes inside a smoke machine cave, they were just violent cultist hillbillies.


    And again, I guess Kevin Sullivan is respected for his Florida work, but in WCW he was just god awful in every way, not even close to Bray on the mic or in the ring.

    ReplyDelete

  51. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomerySeptember 30, 2014 at 12:16 PM

    TJ: editing some Oregon St soccer and they have a defender named Helene Haavik.

    Now THAT would be an awesome wrestling name for an asskicking Diva

    ReplyDelete
  52. Exactly. They booked the Wyatts mega strong through Mania and guess what? They were over huge.

    The insane fan response to those pre-Mania Shield/Wyatts segments and matches wasn't just because the Shield were over, it was because both groups were equally over.

    Then The Shield keeps getting booked strong and goes over Evolution twice, while the Wyatts are losing 3 on 1 matches to Cena. Is it a surprise that the Wyatts lost steam?

    If Bray and Harper kept getting booked as monsters, they absolutely had the ring and mic skills to get insanely over. It's just WWE can't seem to book more then 1-2 acts super strong at the same time.

  54. That ship has just about sailed

    ReplyDelete
  55. Sullivan and the Wizard did this exact same gimmick beat for beat. They just replaced that smokey cave with whatever weird backstage spot the Wyatt's use. But literally the promos are exactly the same. And while Wyatt might have better matches (he still has had only two good matches I've seen as a singles wrestler though) Sullivan and Curtis did all kinds of crazy shit back in the day that got the gimmick over. And Kevin Sullivan is still a better worker and promo than Wyatt.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Watching RAW on DVR, and I'm so tired of the roll-up finish. When Diego gets distracted by Hornswoggle and takes his eye off the ball, it wouldn't be the worst thing to have Heath Slater hit him with an actual high-impact move to get the pin. And it doesn't have to be Slater's finisher; maybe it's a DDT or kick to the face or ... something.
    It's like all the WWE knows how to do to finish a match is have somebody hit their finisher, do a roll-up, or get DQ'd. No variation. Allowing a match to end on a non-finisher would at least create some unpredictability.

  60. From what I've seen, it depends on the person. Sometimes they take it literally (they'll answer ANYTHING, no matter how stupid/useless it is), sometimes it's an attempt at PR.


    The latter usually get openly mocked after a few ignored questions.

    Pretty much like these comment threads; people post questions and they reply to the ones they want.

  65. Yeah the fucking commentary. At this point what do you even do? Cole and Lawler are never going anywhere, probably same for JBL.

    I really, really, really fucking hate Jerry Lawler

    ReplyDelete
  66. The authority figures aren't bad as long as they don't have too much power. Vickie Guerrero and Teddy Long had times where they were heels in charge, but they didn't dominate the program. The problem for me is when Vince or HHH or Dixie Carter or whoever builds this monster stable around them and becomes the No. 1 heel in the company.

  67. Ambrose straps his own rockets:

  68. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomerySeptember 30, 2014 at 12:21 PM

    I would be OK with brining back time limits if they're so fucking afraid of making guys look weak with convincing finishes

    ReplyDelete
  69. In every angle he was in, from the Hulkamania stuff to the Benoit feud, I always felt that almost anyone else would have been better in that role. His promos were rambling, he was obviously not really a threat to anyone, and he wasn't even over. It's almost like he was booking the show, which of course he was. Nobody else would have put him in the positions he was in.

    ReplyDelete
  70. He and Benoit invented the wild backstage brawl that everyone else bit for one reason or another in the attitude era. The wizard was a garbage wrestler but he cut the same kind of promo to a tee as a Wyatt. Wyatt seriously must be doing a slight homage to him like lots of guys do to flair or Shawn.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Even that's played out. Teddy was just the "least offensive", usually.

    ReplyDelete
  72. If you're on a TV show its probably pretty cool to get to write the script.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I still don't buy this. Bray was a rookie heel feuding with the No. 1 babyface in the company and he went 1-2. He's supposed to lose that feud. When Cena was a rookie heel, he lost similar feuds to Kurt Angle, Undertaker, etc., and it didn't kill his character. Now have they booked Bray the way you'd want the "next big thing" booked after the Cena feud? No. But simply losing the Cena feud isn't where his character went wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I will backtrack slightly, in the interests of fairness, at least he never gave himself the world title like Russo did. Or indeed any title at all.

    ReplyDelete
  75. The only realistic solution is to make Vince do lead pbp

    ReplyDelete
  76. Well, at the very least, a HHH AMA wouldn't feature a list full of the kinds of self-aggrandizing exaggerations you'd hear in a typical Hogan interview.


    By the end of a Hogan shoot, you'd think he and Bill Brasky were the same person.

    ReplyDelete
  77. The vignettes from last night definitely imply that Harper is going his own way.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I wish they would bring back time limits, but only if it's done ECW style, where the time just ends. No countdown. My issue with time limit draws in the big two was that you always knew a draw was coming the minute they made note of the time.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I can't wait for the #AskHHH on twitter.

    ReplyDelete
  80. The match that really sticks out to me was a few months ago when they were still pushing Big E and he had a RAW match against Cesaro. It was a pretty good battle between two power guys, and the way they told the story was that each guy had tried every tool in their box and just couldn't put the other guy away. I think at one point Big E had even gone for the Big Ending but Cesaro blocked it. So there was a point in the match where Big E is almost spent, and Cesaro is gaining momentum or separation or however Cole put it, and Cesaro charges Big E in the corner only to be caught with Big E's Rock Bottom-looking thing. It was the PERFECT time to end the match and have Big E win it there -- basically breaking out a move he'd rarely used as a last resort to stop Cesaro. But no, Cesaro kicked out and they had to go through some motions to get to a point where somebody hit their finisher.

  81. My only problem with Sullivan was the evad shit with his horrible brother

  82. I know witw and some of the rest of you don't like my Wyatt to DoD comp but when Bo gets repackaged as a retarded Cena fan don't blame me.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Right, but why put him in that position other than to just reinforce that HHH/Steph are still the true baddest people alive?
    It's been 15 years of WWE revolving around the authority figures as the only true heels. That's fucking horrible and just cuts every other heels' balls off.

    Heyman and Lesnar are so compelling. Why do they still have to play second fiddle to anyone? Why is the structure of the TV show set up so that Brock and Heyman are lesser bad guys than HHH and Steph, ya know? To me the show is a million times more interesting if people on the actual roster (Lesnar/Heyman, or the Wyatts) are presented as the NUMBER ONE threats in the company, rather than the CEO.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I think the distracted roll up finish makes the guys look much worse than if they were to just take a loss. It's always struck me as odd that a professional, at the top of his craft, in the largest wrestling company in the world, is so taken aback by being rolled up when he wasn't looking that he couldn't bring himself to kick out.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Great point about the balls. Rollins could be an evil criminal mastermind, instead he's literally just HHH's little bitch friend. Poor stuff.

  97. Rookie John Cena wasn't brought in as this ultimate evil monster heel. Bray Wyatt was. If they weren't ready to put Bray over Cena in that feud, then they shouldn't have booked that as Bray Wyatt's first huge feud in his first year. Simple as that.


    Look at Undertaker, who's a much more sensible rookie comp to Bray than rookie John cena. Undertaker beat HULK HOGAN for the title in their first match, a match which Taker most dominated. Hogan then got teh title back on shenanigans, but that was it. Taker was made to look liek a monster.


    Bray on the other hand lost clean as a sheet in a regular match at Mania, then beat Cena (without even pinning him. K Fed got to pin John cena, but Bray Wyatt couldn't) with help from his whole stable and a singing kid, and then lost clean to cena the following month.


    There was never a point where Bray was made to seem like a physical threat to Cena--- he was only a threat when he had his crew attack Cena for him.


    And fine, that's one way to book a heel, as a pussy. But that flew against every way in which they'd previously booked Bray before the Cena feud. Before Cena, Bray Wyatt was booked as a monster who dominated in the ring and beat faces (including the Shield and Daniel Bryan) clean. After that feud he became just another pussy heel.

  120. He was also the king! This dude has run the Wyatt all over the world. He mostly worked Hawaii and Australia prior to 1970 (he's the king ieuka that Meltzer talked about in that post where he said sting wasn't a hall of famer), then he worked the wwwf tag scene in the 70's, and had a run as the manager of kamala in the 80's. That was as the wizard. Then he switched back to king Curtis for DoD.

    Dude you should check out his stuff on YouTube. If you like Wyatt you might actually like him (don't bother with his matches though)

  126. If HHH is soliciting information from online wrestling sites, and this is one, I would like to present my idea for him

    Dear HHH:

    Here is my idea for an episode of Raw.

    Cena is in his apartment. Dean Ambrose BURST in through the door.

    Ambrose: Well, John, I got the iphone7.

    Cena: But how? They only just realeased the iphone6!

    Ambrose: Yeah, well, ya see, ya know my friend, Bob Sacamano, he's got inside connections at Apple.

    Cena: Great, guess thing is outdated. *Cena drop iphone6 into trash*

    *MEANWHILE*

    Brie Bella decides if Zack Ryder is spongeworthy.

    *MEANWHILE*

    *Corproate Kane call Real Man's Man Stephen*

    Corporate Kane: I was wondering if you could do a little work with my desk. Extend the bottom shelf, maybe put in a drawer for an alarm clock. I'm gonna need a quality place to do some napping.

  132. Right. And what was the point of demeaning Miz and Sandow in that segment? Other than HHH and Steph thought it was funny... WHAT WAS THE POINT? It reminds everyone that Miz and Sandow are mega goofs who viewers shouldn't take seriously for even a second. And yes, I get they're basically doing a comedy gimmick, but why undress it like that?

    The segment was the CEO saying that someone absolutely sucks in every way and has no reason to be on the show... except, watch him in a match later tonight. Why? What was the fucking point?

    It'd be an amazing exercise for Steph/HHH/Vince to take every Raw script and off to the side give one answer next to every segment: why is this scene here?

  143. It really feels like a circle jerk that is hurting the on air product. If hhh still needs his ego stroked to the extent that he has to be booked like the man, than get in the ring full time and wrestle. Otherwise be a behind the scenes executive or a on air face boss who gets shown up by heels and is avenged by face wrestlers.

  145. The way they portray things on Total Divas, being "just" a valet isn't a desired position, and every woman wants to be a full-time wrestler. But I think they have a few -- Eva Marie, Cameron, Rosa -- who could be great in strictly valet roles. I mean, Lana is more over than any of them currently, and I don't see her wrestling anytime soon.

    "Hey JETER! You're REALLY GOOD BUT CLEARLY PAST YOUR PRIME AND I'D APPRECIATE IT IF YOU'D SHOW YOUR AGE RIGHT ABOUT NOW AND SCREW UP!"

  190. So long, Rowan. Hellooooooooooo Harper push! I initially didn't want them to disband, but honestly, if this is the outcome (or at east banishing Erik to Smackdown), I'm alright with that. Means they might try the rumored Wyatt face turn, which would be a mistake...better to call up Zayn and establish a new face star.

    ReplyDelete
  191. Depends a lot on the person. Most AMAs are where the person answers like 15-20 questions where the answers make them look good. Some of the AMAs are even completely phony. For Obama's AMA the accounts he answered were overwhelmingly likely to be Obama staffers. So the whole thing was a farce. Morgan Freeman's AMA was such a farce it might not have even been him answering.

    But some celebs answer a whole lot of questions even down to the inane ones. Senator Bernie Sanders did a good one and became a regular contributor on the website. Same with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    Then you have the total train wrecks like Jose Canseco that is so bad its good with him outright trolling the userbase and getting trolled himself in equal amounts.

    So yeah tl dr it all depends on how serious the person wants to take it. I imagine HHH would probably answer a bunch of actual questions and not just the softballs. He seems to be a guy who likes talking about random stuff as seen in his Grantland piece.

  193. Here's my top 10 list
    10. Mohammed Hassan
    Hey he got buried by the undertaker but it was a fun little cheap heat run for a few months and it helped build to HBK vs Hogan

    9. The Mountie
    Fuck Canada, their cops are real dick heads and shock people with electric cattle prods. Plus his theme song was boss.

    8. Sika
    Big scary islander who started off a dynasty of island savages.

    7. Iraqi turn coat Sgt. Slaughter
    Not technically a foregin heel but it had all the characteristics of a good xenophobic gimmick and it led to a great hogan match at wm7.

    6. Fritz and Waldo von Erich
    I'm no von Erich expert but I think he mostly did the evil Nazi stuff in the tag team with Waldo.

    5. Ivan Koloff
    I've never seen the Bruno title switch but I wasn't much of a fan of his in the 80's or 90's but Scott ranks him high so I'll put him here.

    4. Mr. Fuji
    Probably the text book evil foreign heel. What more coukd you want. I put him at 4 because he's better known as a tag specialist and a manager.

    3. Nikita Koloff. Fuck Nikoli, this dude was the best 80's Russian heel by a mile and one of the all time jcp greats.

    2. Iron Sheik
    And this was the best 80's evil foreign heel gimmick.

    1. Yokozuna
    This was the top heel act in the world in 1993/94. If you were a small child at the time then Yoko might be the heel you were most terrified by.
