Sporting News: Hell in a Cell 2014 Predictions and Preview


Hopefully you can read between the lines and figure out how excited I am for this monthly special event on WWE Network, which is only $9.99 in case you didn't know.

Comments

  1. Why should I pay $9.99 for a glorified raw with matches I will not remember in 1 months time.
    Except for Lesnar/cena, I honestly couldn't tell you what was on the last ppv without looking it up.

    AJ-Paige seems like a pretty safe bet these days

    Well not sure how HITC is going to play out but Scott sure as hell bored us with his preview.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I am glad that you haven't been murdered by crazy Canadians yet.

    ReplyDelete
  5. It's amazing how much they stop trying during the fall.

    ReplyDelete
  6. So house shows with Ambrose/Orton on top aren't doing well? Wasn't that the same problem with Bryan as well? Has anyone been able to draw besides Cena at house shows since Cena's been the top face?

    ReplyDelete

    Notice the other half of the equation. Orton. He's not over, he's a fucking heat sink. And yet they keep booking him as a top guy anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Not to mention he has a history of ratings falling to year lows when he's champion.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Maybe McMahon will call an audible and have Orton go over Cena? I really don't see the point of Cena/Lesnar IV, I mean what can they really do differently? Unless they are really worried about declining ratings and network buys, I don't see Lesnar dropping the title until Wrestlemania, so why have Cena face him again without going over clean?

    ReplyDelete
  10. I know Cena draws better ratings, but, come on, Lesnar has to face somebody besides Cena before he jobs to Reigns, right?

    ReplyDelete
  11. It's true, they've basically made Orton the equal of Joey Mercury and Jaime Noble, but it's kind of his fault because, like Cena, he never evolves as a character. I would like to see how a match would go down between Orton and Lesnar though if it was similar to Lesnar's total domination of Cena at Summerslam.

    ReplyDelete
  12. The past several months of TV ratings would completely contradict any claims that John Cena is a ratings draw.

    At this point, it's like WCW continuing to keep Kevin Nash on top despite his lack of ratings or drawing power and we know what happened in that situation.

    ReplyDelete
  13. That's true, I guess. I agree with the premise someone said on here that Cena has really been aimless as a character since he beat the Rock. Cena really needs to take some months off to refresh his character, but I kind of feel like he never will unless he's truly hurt or leaving for good because they always get worried when ratings go down and they drag him back in, even though he's kind of showing diminishing results ratings wise.

    ReplyDelete
  14. In relateable news, Vince Russo just took credit for coming up with the HIAC gimmick. Of all the horrible things Russo has done, this has to be one of the worse. This man is the worst reborn Christian ever. He takes credit for people's ideas and then denies his own.

    ReplyDelete
  15. At this point, I subscribe to the wcw Nitro network for $9.99. Getting the wwe ppvs is a bonus for me, so I don't really care how great the show is.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I can't blame him for this one. Coming up with the idea that led to Shawn/Taker one of the best matches ever? Fuck Cornette *I* came up with Hell in a Cell!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Like Vince would ever accept a sponsor who said "I do declare" and "the vapors" in a southern accent: WWE isn't down south wrasslin'.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I kind of assumed Ambrose/Rollins was going to be the main event... I'm not the only one right?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yeah - down South rasslin' was taken seriously, featuring intense feuds and realistic fights. Boo to that!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sometimes they mix it up and do Paige-AJ.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'd do Paige and aj

    ReplyDelete
  22. Imagine if you will, a world in which VKM got cold feet about how much money he could lose on the 1st Wrestlemania so he decides not to use Mr. T and Cyndi Lauper. This is basically how he's treating the network. It's this potentially revolutionary thing that if successful will have the WWE set for years and years... but they are going the cheap route every chance they get. Very little new original content, going at a snail's pace to add archival footage, and going off the rails creatively on there flagship show (RAW) and PPV's. Now granted, Vince didn't have to worry about Wall Street in the 80's

    ReplyDelete
  23. I thought it would too.

    ReplyDelete
  24. But what does that even do? Orton on top isn't fresh--he was just there 6 months ago. They've got a huge roster and the endless possibilities of a fully scripted full-contact sport.

    For instance, once upon a time the Royal Rumble didn't exist. For the first several years there was no WrestleMania title shot at stake, all the top guys just wanted to win the Royal Rumble. For glory. Because it's an accolade. I'm not saying they can--POOF--invent a new Royal Rumble, but for fuck's sake have a tournement with a nice mix of top guys, mid level guys, and low level guys. Call it the Fall Classic. Have everyone cut super serious promos about wanting to win. Have fun with the outcomes.

    ReplyDelete
  25. they probably blame football for the ratings instead of Cena

    ReplyDelete
  26. It stuns me (not really) that half of what's happening on this card is just booking for future feuds involving either John Cena or Randy Orton. And when they both end up being the #1 and #2 faces again (because that's exactly where all this is heading), you know what that means? It'll be time to start building towards ANOTHER match between them!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Notice that Sheamus has likewise been on the fast track to nowhere since his matches with Orton last year. It's like they constantly keep blaming the other guy while conveniently ignoring the bland problem that's right in front of their faces.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Virgil's Gimmick TableOctober 23, 2014 at 1:45 AM

    This company is reaching WCW 1999 levels.

    ReplyDelete
  29. That's a bit of a hyperbole innit?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Word. Its why it no longer exists on a national level.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ha ha! Nitro! Because it sucks! I hate having access to all that archival content. Dunno why I subscribed.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Even though the ratings slide began before the start of preseason football let alone regular season.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh he will. I have a feeling he'll be extra pissed off about this on his podcast tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ric Flair vs. Hulk Hogan in 1999/2000.

    John Cena vs. Randy Orton in 2014.

    Which one was more or less relevant, and which drew more money?

    "Aso" says the student before the master.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Why are people obsessed with the US title lately? Why would they feud over that instead of the World championship? If I were Rusev and I've had his momentum, why would I settle for second best? Would you?

    As for the stuff that's been cranked out, its the best it has been in years (since I've started watching again in '10) Punk's Reign of Terror is behind us, the Bryan payoff was awesome, even if I'm not a huge fan. Leaner is killing people and being made an attraction and a rare treat like Hogan was. Reigns looks great (injury aside, and that's not the E's fault) The Authority is a great stable that is making a star out of Rollins and Ambrose. Speaking of, you have one of the hottest and interesting feud in forever with Ambrose and Rollins and they are fucking killing it! (Awesome blood feud that hasn't been seen in forever, albeit it would be much much better if they would actually have blood) The Rock/HHH segment was terrific, and showed why they are two of the greatest ever. Rusev is fun to watch, crushing dudes left and right (and Show has always been a guilty pleasure. For a guy his size, his athleticism is amazing) and his feud with Show, while not the best, will finally have the Russian beating a guy bigger than him. (Aka making a star) Lana. (One word says it all) Do I have to go on? What more can we ask for?!? Its exactly what we've been clamoring for for years now. The only thing I'm annoyed with is the Bella twins. But even that has a positive as we all need a piss or shit break.

    And I'm fairly tired of the bitching re: Orton v Cena. They always bring the goods against each other, great chemistry. We've seen it a million times? You mean like Rock/Austin? Rock/HHH? Suicide Blondes/Hardys/Dudley's? Angle/Murderer? What are you guys complaining about?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Aside from Wrestlemania and Summerslam, that's how WWE looks at their PPVs as well, background noise to the Network. It's pathetic.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Sorry for the book below but I'm drunk and really enjoying the product, hence the frustration. Ever think we might have unrealistic expectations?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Past several months? Out of 12 years? WTF?

    ReplyDelete
  39. And you don't? #1 sport in America vs a niche product? (Not a criticism, but I think we can all agree that wrestling isn't for everyone.) Damn dude, what are you thinking?

    ReplyDelete
  40. But it is somewhat his fault. He has the power and voice to talk to Vince if he wanted to change shit up, but he doesn't. He doesn't give a fuck, just like John Cena.

    ReplyDelete
  41. A) 1 feud we're talking about here. B) Neither guy is in his 50s and they can still move. Which puts them quite a bit above Flair/Hogan

    ReplyDelete
  42. Who are clling an asshole?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Yeah, there's a big difference between being stale and being physically unable to perform.

    ReplyDelete
  44. WWE list of excuses for mediocre TV ratings.

    Excuse for September-January: It's the NFL's fault.

    Excuse for January: It's the fault of (insert boring bowl game that inevitably involves Alabama here).

    Excuse for February: It's the NBA or the NHL's fault, their seasons are almost over by that point.

    Excuse for March: It's college basketball's fault, damn that March Madness for distracting people from the Road To Wrestlemania.

    Excuse for April: Baseball's started.

    Excuse for May and June: NHL and NBA playoffs are taking place, people would rather watch those.

    Excuse for July: Uh, It's the Saskatchewan Regional Curling Championship's fault (Damn you Men With Brooms for making curling more popular).

    Excuse for August: It's preseason football's fault, people are riveted by those Jaguars vs. Raiders matchups (and of course every four years, there's the Summer Olympic excuse).

    And every September, the excuse cycle repeats all over again like Clean Slate repeating the plot of Groundhog Day.

    ReplyDelete
  45. You don't HAVE to subscribe to YouTube.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Can't really blame football for RAW's lousy ratings when you realize The Walking Dead also competes head to head against primetime football and yet their ratings haven't declined any.

    ReplyDelete
  47. 1) Yeah actually, its a pretty significant difference. 2) stale my ass. Not everyone has been watching religiously a product they don't enjoy for the past 10 years or so. Besides, I always enjoyed HHH, Rock, Foley, Austin, Angle and the limited tag division tear it up against each other during the E's hottest year. My complaint and I think its the reason you feel this way is because there is simply too much show going on. A 3 hour weekly Raw is exhausting.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Uh yeah. Unless you can flesh out your answer more.

    ReplyDelete
  49. ...is that a serious comparison or are you as drunk as I am right now? (And before you ask, yes, ellipses are my favorite things ever. )

    ReplyDelete
  50. You're describing 95% of all PPVs ever. Including UFC.

    ReplyDelete
  51. ..........ACTUALLYI'MHOPPEDUPONCAFFEINERIGHTNOW!!!!!!......

    ReplyDelete
  52. Again, apples and oranges. Walking Dead is the hottest show on TV right now. Raw is a niche product. Even in its biggest boom, I don't think Raw was getting the numbers WD does. (Though could be wrong)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Fair enough. Its a mood altering drug, so it works.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I can see how you would assume my comment was sarcastic, but it was not. I was agreeing with you!

    ReplyDelete
  55. That's cool that you enjoy the product. I tend to enjoy RAW too more often than not but the problem is WWE obviously needs four million more of us to watch every week and about an extra 600,000 or so to plunk down $9.99 a month and for many reasons (among them their habit of running with the same stale guys on top for too long), that just hasn't happened yet.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I miss the days when a Hell in a Cell match was the result of an extended blood feud, instead of it being the result of being October.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Good boy. Here's an extended ellipsis for you.........................

    ReplyDelete
  58. Yeah, Hell In A Cell is a completely pointless PPV concept, especially since you can easily replace it with Halloween Havoc and the wrestlers dressing up in Halloween costumes alone would make the show a lot more creative, a lot more fun plus it's far more fitting for the TV-PG format.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Why is that a problem? Businesses want to grow and new ventures almost never go 100% within the first year.

    ReplyDelete
  60. You get an ellipses!
    ....

    ReplyDelete
  61. Virgil's Gimmick TableOctober 23, 2014 at 3:33 AM

    Hmm, pushing older stars that everyone is sick of. Stupid, nonsensical angles. Terrible ratings. Dumb joke characters. Overinflated Monday night show. Nope. Don't think so.

    ReplyDelete
  62. That's true that new ventures almost never go 100% well within the first year. After all, HBO, ESPN, Netflix lost massive amounts of money for the first several years before they turned the corner and I think the WWE Network is so far losing less money than it could be losing under the circumstances.


    But obviously WWE sees the ratings and lack of revenue as a major problem, hence all of the cost cutting measures and last minute hotshotting that's going on now.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I think Rollins/Ambrose is worthy of it. Although, as you say, it should've been last resort after escalating gimmick matches.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Don't forget burying guys that are over with the fans just because the monkeys in the writing team didn't plan on them getting over (You might as well call Jack Swagger the 2014 equivalent of Norman Smiley and Chris Jericho).

    ReplyDelete
  65. No chance Lesnar is jobbing to Reigns in the next year, but I think the plan is Orton/Lesnar for the next PPV, since it's in Orton's hometown and they're loving the RKO memes

    ReplyDelete
  66. I do think football is a factor.
    personally, I watch MNF over Raw because its the only football game I get the chance to watch

    ReplyDelete
  67. You, you filthy Kwang lover.

    ReplyDelete
  68. The point is that the company is REACHING 1999 WCW levels; essentially it's a very talented roster who are dictated by a room full of monkeys on typewriters. And really in WCW's defense, they got stupid because they got desperate when trying to compete with the WWF. What's WWE's excuse for being stupid, what with all their money and staff and production?

    But again... who drew more money? Seriously. Hogan and Flair in 1999, despite being hideous, probably did OK. Cena and Orton in another main event in 2014? It doesn't move the needle at all.

    Honestly, if you could have the ol' Men In Black flashy thing done to you, you'd watch 1999 WCW over today's shit because it was at least spontaneous.

    ReplyDelete
  69. You've got to be the most positive wwe fan I have EVER seen on the internet

    ReplyDelete
  70. This is why I think Rollins/Ambrose should main event. This is months in the making, Orton/Cena was only really made a week ago.

    ReplyDelete
  71. No way, that makes far too much sense.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I don't know man, I just read Hall's latest Nitro report and it sounds a lot fucking worse than this show does.

    ReplyDelete
  73. He has already admitted that he is/was drunk.

    ReplyDelete
  74. So in what, four calender years in WWE, Lesnar will have fought a total of 5 people? Taker, Cena, Punk, HHH and eventually Reigns? This is a Waste Of Brock.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Ratings have pretty much on average dropped every year for the past 12 years. Fans are slowly dripping away.

    ReplyDelete
  76. So you don't think Rollins/Ambrose is worthy of a cell match, after a 5 month long chase?


    And WCW War Games was just the result of being September, from 1993 to 1998.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I would be ready to bet that Ambrose/Rollins is going on last. Bet what, I don't know, but I totally would! (just not money) *ahem*

    ReplyDelete
  78. Extant1979 Most Must-See BoDerOctober 23, 2014 at 5:30 AM

    I think Ziggler-Cesaro 2-out-of-3 falls should be dandy. Rollins-Ambrose should be good, too. Totally worth hanging out on Sunday night and reading you guys complain about the product,

    ReplyDelete
  79. It does sound like a good show, I would consider watching it, but it might have to be through nefarious and not totally legal means. (stupid NetPak)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Yeah, I know, I was actually misunderstood, what I really meant was HEY LOOK OVER THERE!!! *runs away*

    ReplyDelete
  82. Uninspiring as much of the booking is, if everyone has their working boots on there's a decent chance of at least three ****+ matches.

    ReplyDelete
  83. "Yep Mode" ABeyAnce1©October 23, 2014 at 5:45 AM

    Man, reading all if that makes me want to pull out my hair in frustration at the company.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Between watching last week's and the new episode of The Walking Dead and the series finale of Boardwalk Empire, WWE will be lucky to get any attention from me. I may remember to use the app on my phone to at least have the PPV playing so I can watch during TWD commercials, but I doubt it.

    ReplyDelete
  85. They are not gonna have a number one contender match and then wait three months for the match. They will pay the extra money and get Lesnar to Appear at Survivor Series. Therefore Orton gets him at SS. Cena gets him at RR. Bryan or Reigns get him at WM.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Has there anybody as consistent on the roster over the last two years as Goldust?

    ReplyDelete
  87. Great Khali has consistently sucked for more than two years.

    ReplyDelete
  88. The worthiness of Rollins/Ambrose being in a cell is moot.


    They are not in a cell because circumstances compelled it.


    They are in a cell because it is October.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Orton and Cena have been feuding since before the Civil War.

    ReplyDelete
  90. While I don't think the network can go away right now and it IS revolutionary, I think because he's getting cold feet and isn't expanding...it won't be his downfall, but he started something that others are going to take. HBO is planning on releasing HBO go to internet subscribers before Game of Thrones starts next year. Currently, it's only available if you also have HBO on cable but they're changing it.


    MLB and the NFL are also looking into it, though are currently tied up in long TV deals. However once those deals are done, there will be plenty of companies who look to the WWE model and will say, "hey. They got almost a million subscribers just with Pro Wrestling. Imagine if we gave them the NFL."


    Vince took a risk and I think a lot of other people are going to reap benefits from it.

    ReplyDelete
  91. The ratings are on par.

    ReplyDelete
  92. But they built it up and timed it very well. It sounds like you won't allow yourself to enjoy it because of this nitpick. I am amazed.

    ReplyDelete
  93. You pretty much summed up the Iron Sheik-Hacksaw Jim Duggan feud in your Big Show vs Rusev prediction.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Naruto vs Sasuke was way better than anything you're going to see on this show.


    **** 1/4

    ReplyDelete
  95. Show's smoking weed in the back of Rusev's jalopy?

    ReplyDelete
  96. What's there to enjoy? Hell in a Cell is a regular match with an obstructed view.

    I'm way more optimistic about this show than Scott appears to be. The two main event matches should be awesome and there's enough scenarios that can happen that it's worth seeing what route they take.

    ReplyDelete
  99. MikeyMike, WitnessOctober 23, 2014 at 7:16 AM

    Those were the worst War Games tbf.

    ReplyDelete
  100. That's one way to end that feud.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Ziggler/Cesaro is the only thing that interests me at all, but it should be great. Let's hope they actually give them some decent time.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Or it doesn't look particularly interesting. Not everything is nitpicking, though you do quite a bit of it yourself when attempting to summarize why someone might not want to watch the show.

    ReplyDelete
  109. You know, a Halloween costume worked wonders for Cena. And a different look for a PPV would be a nice change of pace.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Re: The US title thing. I don't know it's different. Rusev wins the US title to rub it in America's face. Cena gets offended and has a soft spot for the US tittle b/c it was his first.


    And I do not agree at all about Orton vs Cena. I have never enjoyed an Orton vs Cena match. They bore me to tears. Real tears.


    All I want is for them to shuffle the deck. Mix things up. Do things differently. Cena vs Orton headlining a ppv for the right to a title shot is not different.

    ReplyDelete
  111. It's all good, I wrote my original rant stoned.

    Ever think we might have unrealistic expectations?--Sure. But one can dream, right?

    ReplyDelete
  112. I suspect that the parallel universe where Cena's Vanilla Ice costume never gets caught on video is an interesting one.

    ReplyDelete
  113. He gets a new tatoos after each matches with Cena

    ReplyDelete
  114. I hope there will be skipping

    ReplyDelete
  115. Yeah it makes sense for Russev to go after the US title

    ReplyDelete
  116. Ha both are beyond great.

    ReplyDelete
  117. My prediction is that the WWE apologists and pretentious douche bag elitists will come on here and rave about how awesome Ziggler/Cesaro was (a match we've seen 24,725 times) and give their cutesy little star ratings, when in reality 2/3 fall matches are so damn overrated and predictable. Yeah, cool, you get more wrestling between the two, when the wrestling before the third fall is boring as shit. Know what would be cool? If someone actually won the first two falls. Throw a curve once in a while.

    ReplyDelete
  118. So will Ambrose rubbing Seths face against the cell really add THAT much to the match? That's about the craziest spot you're going to see.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Vince always gets ass hurt when you don't like something he likes. He thinks by being pro WWE that it makes him smarky and elite... on-going trend. It's beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Thought you might be a bit limited.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Heh yeah. But its not fair to damn for not meeting those expectations. For you or the company. :)

    ReplyDelete
  122. "Know what would be cool? If someone actually won the first two falls. Throw a curve once in a while."


    They DID do this in Mick Foley's match with Ric Flair @ Vengeance 2006.

    ReplyDelete
  123. The thing is, the whole 'don't get excited until X point in the match' problem has existed for a long time, and it doesn't matter what match type it is or what event. One of the biggest recent mistakes the 'E has made booking wise is turning finisher kick outs to a regular occurrence. Now the crowd knows that the match isn't going to end until at least one wrestler kicks out of the others' big move, so why get excited before then?

    That's one of the many reasons that, for example, Bret was so great. He often incorporated finishes that didn't rely on the sharpshooter, his sole 'finishing' maneuver, and so you never knew when the match would end (the famous kick off the turnbuckle pin to escape the Million Dollar Dream against Steve Austin being a famous fan favorite).

    All that said, preemptively attacking people on a personal level is never a good idea. It comes off as... well, I'm sure you could guess, especially with that wonderful word 'douche bag' right on the welcome mat.

    We all have our moments though, no judgement, just being real.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Which feud has more heat on it at the moment though?

    ReplyDelete
  125. Yet Ambrose v Rollins is. Could it be the smart business decision of hedging their bets?

    ReplyDelete
  126. That's misleading. Ratings have been dropping on a program that can be viewed 4 (I think) different ways, some of which don't apply to ratings measurement.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Eh I'm generally a positive guy to begin with. Negativity was very destructive to me. But really, I believe credit should be given where its due. They are doing a lot of things that we all asked for. We should be rewarding that or we have no more reason to criticize (unless its criticism for criticisms sake. Which will drive you crazy) But for real? Haven't cared about US title since the early 90s. Have a hard time believing anyone really does.

    ReplyDelete
  128. But I also don't really get the group that hopes WWE goes under. This seems both stupid and selfish. Why cut off your Jose to spite your face? Why take away something you might not enjoy from those that do? M
    Kinda horrible I think.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I call bullshit. Neither Ziggler nor Cesaro have been in the company long enough to work 24,745 matches, let alone with each other. Didn't bother reading the rest as you lost credibility there.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Yes it could. Don't underrated either men as wrestlers who could deliver.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns, HHH

    ReplyDelete
  132. Yeah, I call bullshit.

  133. They Re pushing new stars. Again, Rollins and Ambrose are in a main event match and feud. And really just because you're sick of Orton - Cena doesn't mean everyone is. I actually really like Orton, he's an amazing athlete.

    I remember how much folks were "sick" of the Rock and he's now considered amazing. Cmon.

  134. And nonsensical angles? This is pro-wrestling not The Godfather. They are all pretty nonsensical.

  135. Well, yeah, neither Ambrose nor Rollins have headlined a ppv, or had a ppv WWE title match (or televised for that matter). So having them in the main event with the winner getting Lesnar down the line would absolutely be fresh.


    They are definitely going the safe route with Cena/Orton, but it's also the boring route, and they've been doing the safe--keep Cena on top--thing for too long.

  136. Again I point to Rock/Austin/Mankind/Taker/HHH. AND IT WAS AWESOME! But I was in college and stoned/drunk so everything was awesome. Maybe that's the problem. Past always looks better than today. Until today becomes the past.

  137. I do agree with that.


    I was in high school and not drunk or stoned, and it was still awesome. I've never been able to really get into Cena or Orton or Batista. But I believe your the guy I questioned about not liking Edge or Jericho, so it seems we've got different tastes, so no sense in arguing taste.


    More importantly we seem to agree about watching wrestling under the influence--so we'd probably get along!

    You're splitting hairs. There's a difference between a wrestling angle that is good, makes sense within the context of wrestling and keeps people entertained and one that is dreadful, goes nowhere and gets no one over.

    Well good for you. Most people are sick of Cena and Orton. That's why ticket sales and ratings are decreasing. And yeah. Rollins and Ambrose are getting over. SO over, in fact, that they felt the need to attempt to insert John Cena into it. I'm not gonna pretend like they had to have their hand forced like the Bryan push, but in some ways, this feud has gotten hot despite the company instead of because of it. And if they make Cena vs Orton in the cell the final match on the card, they're asking for the crowd to turn on it. Cause they absolutely will.

  140. I don't think I was the one...like Edge quite a bit and Jericho is on and off for me.

  141. Either way I'm fairly reasonable so I'm not that hard to hang with. Usually.

  142. Like I mentioned before, I think its smart business to hedge your bets and not put all the pressure and money on Rollins and Ambrose.

    Okay then, why should they put it all on Orton-Cena 734?

    ReplyDelete
  144. OK. Well can I have examples of the 2?

  145. They've wrestled on RAW and Smackdown at least over 30 times. Haha my credibility. That hurts, brah.. really hurt.

    ReplyDelete
  146. It.wasn't meant to hurt so much as explain that I can't really believe what you say. How many times did Austin and Rock wrestle each other?
