Blood, boobs or bad words?

Hey Scott,
 
So let's pretend WWE's corporate sponsors, investors and/or whoever else influences WWE programming collectively gives Vince McMahon the OK to bring back one "adult" element from the Attitude Era in an effort to improve ratings and subscriptions. Vince has the choice to bring back blood, nudity/sex (still cable-TV friendly) or cursing to WWE television.
 
If you were advising Vince, which one of the three would you tell him is best for business, and which of the three do you just personally want to see again?

​Boobs are best for business (and ratings patterns definitely used to prove that all the way into the HLA nonsense) but I don't trust the monkeys hammering on the typewriters now.  Not to mention that the current crop of Divas are barely even passable actors at the best of times.  

Personally, I'd like to see blood back, IN MODERATION, in important and meaningful places.  Like Hell in a Cell for a big feud.  Guys gigging themselves on TV because they want to pop a rating is a waste and the kind of barbaric nonsense that helped kill the Crockett territories under Dusty.  ​

Comments

  1. For the love of all that's good lets not put the Divas division back to AE levels.

    Moderate blood is fine so long as the proper testing is done beforehand. Cursing as well but again not all the time.

  2. Was Orton on Monday a good use or just trying to pop a rating? Didn't look accidental like Cesaro's earlier in the night. I thought it added a lot to the moment. A bladejob for a big heel beatdown is a long way from Last Blood Battle Royals.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Ugh, Summer Rae and Paige feuding over which one was impregnated by Cesaro.


    And honestly, as attractive as the women they get are, cable (even basic cable) has gotten so much more sexified that it's not an arms race they can win.

    ReplyDelete
  4. This. The Divas division could use improvements for sure but they have a nice crop of talented wrestlers on the main roster and NXT. AJ vs Nikki should be good, even Paige and Alicia could end up decent.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I love Hennig, but I dont recall any particularly outstanding matches in 90 or anything. Flair wins this without a second thought

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'll go with cursing, but on the condition that it means that promos would actually be improved and more realistic. ECW-era Rhino is overkill, as is TNA-era Road Dogg with all the homophobic slurs, but if it means that everyone stops sounding like they're five years old, it'd be a HUGE improvement. It's hard to believe in a blood feud when the people involved are beating up mannequins or dropping poop on someone.

    ReplyDelete
  7. What does the "to pop a rating" thing even mean, when we are talking about a live show? Unless we knew in advance that wrestler X was going to bleed in Y segment, why would it equate to ratings if a guy bled randomly on TV. If a Ziggler vs Kingston maych suddenly featured a random bladejob, why would that equal a ratings boost in a live show?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Wrestling at its best is like a comic book or an action movie.


    I've seen a good action movie that didn't have boobs.


    I've seen a good action movie that didn't have cursing.


    I've never seen a good action movie that didn't have blood.


    It's such an immediate, visceral sign of violence that any super intense fight scene without it falls a little flat (the lack of blood is one of my main issues with the recent superhero movies).


    The only thing from an acting perspective that cursing adds is a realism/grittiness to the work, you can be threatening and natural without it though.


    And boobs eh, if you're not sexy full-clothed, you won't be sexy naked.

  9. I mean, I think sex appeal is definitely a draw, but that's the case for the performing arts in general (Nirvana would've sold less albums if people didn't want to fuck Kurt) but I also don't know if you sex up the divas division anymore without it hitting a point of ridiculousness and parody (just like Nirvana would not have sold more albums if Cobain performed in ass-less chaps).

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yeah, I've always thought the same thing about him He was in some great feuds, but the matches always seemed to result in over-booked non-finishes. His Wrestlemania match against Jake the Snake should have been a classic, but instead it was just an angle. It seemed like they were always holding out for a payoff which never came with DiBiase. His only real blow-off match was the one against Virgil at Summerslam, and even that degenerated into the DiBiase/Repoman vs. Virgil/Tito Santana angle--teaming with Repoman is a great way to lose all your heat. It would have been great to have seen DiBiase and Hennig during the PPV era where they would have been in a position to build a body of memorable matches.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Out of all the things that helped JCP, I don't think "too much blood" is on the list.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I find it funny that some of hbks worst matches was with perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I think face Shawn and heel Perfect could have been better.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Flair in 90 was still the man

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yeah, I don't think of him as a bad wrestler I just can't immediately think of any "you gotta see that Dibiase!" matches either.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Flair was an odd one for me because he did have some good brawling matches I just never saw Ric Flair as anyone you'd be worried would kick your ass.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Or stop the great Mike Modano point blank?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Dusty booking bloodbaths night after night certainly helped to kill that as a money drawing tactic.

    ReplyDelete
  19. And then there's Japan.



    Hennig was never the best in any year. He was an incredibly talented worker who could do many things no one else could, but there was always someone better around.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Because ratings track minute by minute and that's the kind of stunt Russo used to do all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'd say blood in the right cases but let's not discount bad words - teenagers love it and it adds realism when someone is so angry they want to beat the shit out of you rather than mock you for smelling like poop.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Pretty sure it was hardway. Fairly weak bladejob if he did gig

    ReplyDelete
  23. Very true. I do miss bra and panties matches and whatever skanky stuff they pulled off pre-PG.

    I am a man and a wrestling fan.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Blobs. Yes.
    Blood. YES.
    Cursing, not necessary, but the Disney movie language they are having Ambrose use when he is pissed at Rollins is so cheeseball

    ReplyDelete
  25. Boobs they got plenty of. Blood only means something at the right time, in moderation. Swearing doesn't really add anything. I'd settle for plain old intensity & authenticity. Make the guys feel like real people, not actors playing characters reading lines. Show some passion. Make matches, wins & losses and the titles mean something again. Any of that would mean more than trying to be Attitude Era Edgy again.

    I would say blood, but my fear is that Vince would pull the trigger on an angle involving a Diva on her period.

    ReplyDelete
  27. blood to come back...so the censoring on the live stream would stop.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I might have mis-remembered it but didn't you say Brie was all around terrible in your HiaC report?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yeah, but... god help me I'm starting to come around to liking her. I could *almost* get behind them going all in on her. Make her just a total bitch, skilled just enough to hang with any other Diva in the ring, but ruthless, will cheat like a mother to win if she has to. Give her the belt and mow her over all the other women; while they build up Charlotte as the woman skilled enough, with all the tricks learned from the Dirtiest Player in the Game. Have them clash in a shockingly violent, bloody war that redefines what women's wrestling should be. Yeah! God I shouldn't drink coffee this late in the day. Forget I said any of this.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm actually against blood. Guys getting cut hardway is cool though, but guys blading nowadays with no kayfabe anymore seems like a waste.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Doesn't it suck that in 2014 we're still talking about ratings?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yes, but what does that have to do with the topic at hand?

    ReplyDelete
  33. my favorite pointless blade job as of the past couple years was cm punk blading for jerry lawler in their cage match on raw haha. seriously save the blade for cena, not old man lawler.

    ReplyDelete
  34. DiBiase consistency delivered ***-**** matches on the house show circuit but he never had a classic match on a PPV or on television in the WWF. You could say the same about Hennig with the exception of his PPV matches with Bret Hart.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I wonder if Hennig wouldn't have been better off in WCW. He would have been a natural Horsemen candidate, but I also think he could have really taken off in either Eaton or Zbyszko's spots in the Dangerous Alliance. I'm sure he would have loved working with Rude and I think he would have gelled really well with Anderson and Austin (maybe we'd have gotten a different Hollywood Blondes) too. The Mr. Perfect character was great, but the early 90s were not kind to workrate guys in the WWF; WCW might have suited a worker of Hennig's style more.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I was really surprised when I saw that it was hardway from the playback because that was such a stupid cut. It was too deep, it was on his scalp (http://mmafightfans.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/A1fUYn-CQAAZwdA_large.jpg), and the match was worthless. Plus, he got fined some ungodly amount of money.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Dandy really was best in the world that year. With no exaggeration or irony.

    ReplyDelete
  38. he tried to add an extra snowflake to a dud by doing it lol.

    ReplyDelete
  39. 3 or 4 blade jobs a year to blow off big feuds in a gimmick match shared among a roster of 75 guys with both participants being blood tested beforehand.


    What kind of pansy could possibly have a problem with that?


    Bring back the Diva jerk off mags & dvds too because you might as well make some money off most of these dead weight broads.

    I was watching Starrcade '85 the other night and it was astounding to me that the Magnum/Tully match was so special and intense, considering that like 6 other matches on the card had blade jobs.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Frankly I couldn't care less about boobs.
    I don't watch wrestling for boobs. There are better avenues if I'm so inclined.

    Blood and swearing where naturaly applicable. 100% in favor.

    ReplyDelete
  48. A compromise: bring back boobs, but go to black and white when the puppies come out

  49. Perfect would've been better in NWA/WCW in the late 80's/early 90's, but would've been a (ahem) perfect fit in WWF during the attitude era. Wrong place wrong time indeed

  55. WrestleFest was a special video release or something like that.

    What you said proved my point. It was a good match but it wasn't classic match held on a big stage. DiBiase rarely had bad matches but he was never placed in a position to have a classic in the WWF. The main part of that was that 80s WWF the focus was more on providing a consistently entertaining show rather than having blowaway matches here and there.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Like that fat ass Japanese at Bound for Glory?

    ReplyDelete
  57. I don't really miss any of that. The one "adult" element I'd like to see is the no. 1 face behaving like a grown man.

    if Nikki Bella took her top off and it trended on twitter, it might actually get people to tune in.

    plus there's people on the west coast hearing about stuff on the internet earlier and tuning in to see something shocking

    ReplyDelete
  66. I say bring black the tits, and have 'CUNT' written on them with human blood.

    ReplyDelete
  67. wait, in that scenario are Summer Rae and Paige both pregnant, but one might be carrying Cesaro's baby? or does the winner get Cesaro's sperm?

    ReplyDelete
  68. A compromise to make everybody happy! Thanks Satan.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Blood, we already have bad words, and boobs can be done better elsewhere. Not in every PPV main event (I remember when the forehead bandages on Raw seemed to be a running gag), but in big matches where the storyline or match type calls for it.

    ReplyDelete
  70. How about HHH and Orton feuding over Stephanie's pregnancy, if rumors of her being preggo again are true?

    ReplyDelete
  71. I wish I'd had more access to Japan from '90 but as awesome as Flair was I really loved Liger.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I dunno, for the most part I'm not really seeing it from Brie. Nikki has looked shockingly good lately though.

    ReplyDelete
  73. So what happened to Riley? Why did he get moved to commentary?

    On some level, that episode is symptomatic of WWEs problems. Outside of the main, each match was 2 dudes fighting. Nothing at stake. Nothing real memorable about the characters.

    I'm not saying that Hawkins/Gabriel/Axel/Riley are world beaters but they could all have been solid hands that could fill out the midcard. Nowadays the midcard only exists to feed the main eventers.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Nothing really but it just bugs we is all. It's still fair to call her a terrible actress but she's improved leaps and bounds as a worker.

  76. 1990 was not a good year for great WWF matches. Perfect actually did have a good year--the matches with Santana were really good. He may well have been best in the company, but Bret Hart, Ted DiBiase, and even the Big Boss Man were around there as well. Savage too, but he was stuck in an utterly stifling feud with Dusty Rhodes.


    Best in the US? Hell no--Flair and Bobby Eaton were. Hell, Luger had another great year, too. Best in the world? Nowhere remotely close. 1990 was an outstanding year for guys like El Dandy (blah blah who are you to doubt blah blah, yeah, thanks for that original contribution), Jumbo Tsuruta, and Stan Hansen.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I totally understand it. He was wrestling The King of Memphis Jerry Lawler In his hometown in a cage match. We look at Lawler now as that shitty announcer on raw, but in the 70's and 80's he was a god there.

    Punk was just showing respect. I would have done the exact same.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Barbaric? Precisely what do you think wrestling is? 2 guys have a problem with each other and the only way they know how to solve it by fighting? That's pretty barbaric.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Their 1991 match on the WM7 special had just that kind of dynamic and was much better than the Summer Slam match to boot.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Even with a groin pull the likes of which we've never seen, I'm told.

    ReplyDelete
  81. How bout just feuds that actually mean something, with legitimate, believable beefs, where the intensity and drama is real and not just forced and tacked on? Just better, logical booking is all this product needs. Blood and the like can follow if necessary.

  82. Its down on 3rd, in the Boob District...

  83. Yeah, what wrestling is really missing these days is more guys getting hepatitis.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Well, it was what Dusty did best.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Fun to watch Regal break character, if only for an instant.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Yes! I was just about to type the same thing. The most popular TV shows right now are serials told over multiple seasons with large casts of characters who are always backstabbing and betraying each other. Stuff like Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, etc.... There's no reason the WWE can't do the same thing but with in-ring fights to settle issues.

    The most frustrating thing about the Ambrose/Rollins Hell in a Cell match was the story wasn't completed. Why did Bray Wyatt suddenly get involved? Why is Ambrose suddenly at peace over his issues with Rollins? Where is any of that going? When I was watching Raw on Monday, I was interested in the Authority Survivor Series team because there are real stakes and I was intrigued to see what was going to happen with Orton and Rollins. Even the Ziggler segment was fascinating because it was building towards a story and the WWE felt like a larger universe.

    CZW has all the blood and profanity you could want and it's still just a crappy indie fed only a handful of people care about. (Although, the wrestling is very good there for some reason.) Blood, boobs, and swearing isn't going to make the WWE good again.

    I think first it's to figure out who Cesaro impregnated, than we can have a match for the fetus.

  100. Adam "Colorado" CurryNovember 7, 2014 at 11:17 PM

    What I would like to see:


    Boobs: No. It's 2014, if I want to see boobs there's plenty of sites like, say (CENSORED TO NOT PISS OFF SCOTT'S AD-SENSE PEOPLE). Or just see boobs in person, never had a problem there...
    Bad Words: It's a misconception among dumber smarks (see 411 and wrestlinginc) that words like "fuck" and "shit", even when bleeped, were the core of the Attitude Era. Bullshit, AE promos could not use any "dirty words", and would still come off the same because of the intensity and just malicious intent. Today, "bad words" means actually talking or even doing real violence. See Roberts, Justin and Bryan, Daniel.
    Blood: Should be used, but ONLY in small quantities, and only in the right spots. For instance, a fucking WM HITC with HHH and Taker, and there's no blood? Fuck off, and that was the least of my problems with that match. That being said, basic medical sense says that blading is a bad idea, though I would think we could fake it by now.


    What makes money:


    Boobs: See above.
    Blood: Couldn't hurt, if again, it's used sparingly. Ambrose/Rollins should have had blood. Not a Mexico 5-alarm bladejob, but a quick-nick .3 Muta would have worked. Or again, find a way to fake it.
    Bad words: Now here we go. NWA and early WCW were able to make people believe that "X" wrestler was going to fuck up "Y" wrestler and put him on the shelf for months with cussing, and WWE is intentionally lacking that. Do that, and there's my answer.

    "There's no reason the WWE can't do the same thing but with in-ring fights to settle issues."



    Actually, yeah, there is. And that reason is that if any of the WWE writers were any good at that sort of thing they'd be writing for one of those shows, not for WWE.

  111. Paternity test results on a pole. Yes, HHH wants to know who's the father, but he REALLY doesn't want anyone else to find out in case he's not the father. Orton doesn't necessarily want to be a father again, but procreating with Stephanie gives him partial ownership of the company. That'd be more intense than anything WWE has going now.

    That was the DiBiase conundrum. His character was a rich snob that bought his way into every advantageous position he could. The only way to blow off a character like that is to utterly ruin him and put him in his place in such a way that he can't buy his way out of. But he was such a good character that they couldn't do that. He was too over to do that at his height. So he basically just got run into the ground until he was a glorified midcarder, and then quietly left due to Savio Fucking Vega of all people finally putting him in that place.

  135. Blood is the only one of those that's crucial to wrestling. Its very noticable when blood isn't there in brutal personal feuds. Blood being in UFC makes WWE's lack of blood stand out even more. Boobs are much easier to find online now so who is even gonna care about that. And for swearing... just get them off the soap opera scripts and things will improve.

  136. Henning wasn't the best. He was absolutely PERFECT~!

  137. It's in bad taste but man, that would be awesome to watch.

  138. Tj: Is this the last item on this page of the most recent wwe survey something or nothing?

  139. I think it made a lot of sense considering it was the impetus for Bryan's heel turn.

  140. I'm not doubting El Dandy. He's a real jam up guy

  141. blood would by far be the best to get back in. No need to gig yourself every night, but Cage matches, big angles, etc. need blood. But before any of the three, what they really need is the holy trinity of Kevin Dunn, Bonnie Hammer, and Mattel to go away. that would be something that would blow any return to blood, boobs, or swearing away in the importance department.

  142. Hot Lesbian Action - It refers to an angle with Bischoff as GM of Raw bringing in lesbians to make out on screen for ratings before them getting them to come onto Stephanie McMahon.

  143. Hey, here's a thought. Maybe try not to reinforce the idea that all male wrestling fans are basement-dwelling virgins who live dick-in-hand 24/7?

  144. What does them not being good actors have to do with them getting closer to naked more often?

    As long as they're good actors in the bedroom (or back of the car, or whatever), amIrite?

    And another reason why getting rid of PG won't solve anything. You can't do a good old-fashioned dyke-off on HBO, much less TV-14.

  148. "(Nirvana would've sold less albums if people didn't want to fuck Kurt)"


    Probably the dumbest example you could have used.

  149. that's what I have wondered about, too @ blood capsules.

    because the whole concept of "blading" seems really outdated to me (suggesting self mutilation in 2014? really?).

  150. he impregnated both because he is a swinger.

  151. Oh come on, you didn't enjoy the 3 dimensional acting skillz of Torrie and Dawn Marie in that hotel room? I'lll I'll be right back...

  152. WWE was such in an attention seeking mindset at the time (yes, way more than usual). Hey look a gay wedding! Hey look, HLA!! Hey look, Necrophilia!! TALK ABOUT US!!

  153. I've seen a few real fights in my day and I'm pretty sure that none of then resulted in either of the combatants ending up bleeding from the forehead.

  154. Street Fighting Dougie ftw!

  155. CFL *AND* TNA as "very interested"? You no longer exist to me.

    ReplyDelete
  156. I know how talking about how bad TNA's name is a broken record, but seeing it spelled out like that as "Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling" really brought home again how pants it is.

  157. Because they didn't shake the Undertaker's hand tightly enough? Or loosely enough... I forget how it works with those guys.

  158. HE WAS SUPPOSED TO PINCH MY THIGH IF HE WAS RUNNING OUT OF AIR!

  159. I dunno, I've seen a ton of movies with violence that still didn't show much blood. Mostly because the action was coming fast and all over the place, you didn't even notice the lack of blood.

  160. It just makes it much more difficult. You don't need to drop f-bombs, but grown men saying they're going to kick another guy's butt is embarrassing.

  161. A manly acting British man who's secretly a flaming homosexual? Yeah, I watched Monty Python, too. It hardly makes it a good idea.
