Update on Vince McMahon Addressing the Crowd During the Taping of Smackdown

According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com, the story of Vince berating the fans for their behavior and being upset over the WWE Network were false. Vince did address the crowd and tried to rile them up as he felt that they were flat but that there were no mentions of the Network and that Vince was playing his heel character for the crowd.

    I haven't seen any reports of him doing it b/c of them being upset over the Network, and everything to do with them being non-responsive.



    And what does Mike Johnson know, anyway? I think Vince's actions were more than just him being a heel. He was able to get away with it as a heel, but he wasn't being a heel just to be a heel.

    Which Tommy Dreamer?

    Are you accept my challenge or what, Bayless?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Opps, good catch.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Why bother? Bayless doesn't pay attention to the black man. Look at how he treats us on BoD RAW. All I want is ONE MORE MATCH at DBSM's C+ title. What do I get? Radio silence.

    I think it's time that we form our own Speed Force, Jef. Spread the word to Devin Harris.

  19. I kinda just show up every couple months, make a couple of posts, mostly stupid, and then disappear again. And yes, the fix of the daily update was needed.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Dreamer made some comment about not being paid for his banners or something, Heyman made a couple of tweets suggesting Dreamer's not as up front and honest as he acts and plays the victim.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Looks like Dreamer asked when he was gonna get paid for the ECW banners, and Heyman went off.

  33. That looked totally harmless, and just a "pick me up" for the crowd.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yeah!!!!!!!!.....wait a minute......

  35. Heyman's tirade against David Bixenspan made my head hurt. Paul reminds me of a woman who will run an argument into the ground over one specific word used in the course of a fight.

    People acted like he went all Michael Richards on the crowd.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I've seen the video, it's not really Vince being a heel, it's him totally throwing a tantrum. Vince doesn't even have a heel persona right now.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Dreamer should thank Paul Heyman every night before he goes to bed for giving him a respectable career. Dreamer is the classic example of a guy who wasn't going to make it anywhere else doing good business with Paul.

  45. I still think it's really embarrassing.

  46. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonNovember 12, 2014 at 12:15 PM

    Wasn't it said that Raven and Dreamer did a good portion of the booking when ECW was in its prime?

  54. SHAKE IT.

    ReplyDelete
  55. BOOTY QUAKE IT.

    ReplyDelete
  56. The Network issue had nothing to do with Vince coming out, and everything to do with the crowd being deader than shit for the shit they were being peddled. For that reason alone, it's embarrassing.

    ReplyDelete
  57. So basically...Vince cut a Mr. McMahon promo and a newz site took it and decided Mr. McMahon was a real person?


    I still love that they're over their with duct tape on their ring banners, that's the part of this everyone is forgetting to make fun of.

    ReplyDelete
  58. This needs to be handled in the squared circle with a contract signing.

    ReplyDelete
  59. In the PG Era, that IS going Michael Richards.

    ReplyDelete
  60. This is definitely an improvement over "John Cena tries his best to put on angry militant lesbian face."

    ReplyDelete
  61. I drink enough coffee that I don't need speed.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I know Raven did. Not sure about Dreamer. Depending on which ideas were his, that could lead to blame or praise. You know ECW.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'veI've been having trouble finding 5 songs that I've heard in these lists.. I'm still voting though because it's my civic duty!

    ReplyDelete
  64. U2 "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me". Outstanding song. One of the few U2 songs that don't make me want to smash my face into a wall.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I kind of have a soft spot for Beautiful Day, otherwise U2 doesn't really cut it at all.

  66. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonNovember 12, 2014 at 12:57 PM

    Too many WWE Montages ruined that song for me.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I think I might just love this song because: Batman. That soundtrack also had Kiss From A Rose on it, another awesome 90s song. And the next shitty Batman movie had the Pumpkins incredibly badass "End Is The Beginning Is The End". Batman soundtracks ruled.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Oh yeah, did they do a HHH montage to that a while back? I'd forgotten.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Yeah, off the first quad injury IIRC, around the time My Sacrifice was also getting abused for those WWE Desire videos.


    I still have most of them.

    ReplyDelete
  70. It's one of my favorites.

    ReplyDelete
  71. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED

    ReplyDelete
  72. Those pre-match promo videos WWE did to proper songs are sorely missed. I remember some awesome ones before the Steiner-HHH matches that stick out in particular.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love this country, NASA's twitter is on overdrive trying to correct every idiot congratulating them on the Philae landing, lol.

    Um, whoops?

    ReplyDelete
  80. It was a taped RAW, yet ratings only dipped slightly, so obviously more Authority & John Cena are what's Best For Ratings™.

    ReplyDelete
  81. They filled the "Doctor of Thuganomics" position?

    ReplyDelete
  82. I remember reading about a Rhyno vs. Tajiri or someone match on a Smackdown house show that had Vince come out about 4 minutes in and cancel the match because it sucked and wasn't getting the crowd involved.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Can't wait for Kane/Rollins vs. Cena/Ryback on RAW.

    ReplyDelete
  84. FEED ME MORE.........................of that matchup.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Or ratings went down and we need more McMahon-Levesques for credibility.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Question for the group, not trying to be snarky or anything: Does anyone here pay attention to the ratings of your other favorite TV shows besides wrestling?

    ReplyDelete
  87. Not really.


    I occasionally will pay attention to a popular HBO show, and/or other shows compared to NFL.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Really, in terms of local economic impact, Wrestlemania is everything the Super Bowl claims to be.

    That's a DID YOU KNOW that's actually true, but it would fly over the heads of 90% of the audience.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Its good to know I'll be able to see them wrestle on every show for the rest of the year!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Only if they're available to see when I look up the RAW rating. All my other favorite shows are good so I don't have wish for the ratings to fall off a cliff and force wholesale changes.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Its like the Megapowers vs. Megabucks of the 21st century. Or not.

    ReplyDelete
  92. If I told you right after mania 30 that Cesaro would be a jobber that is barely on TV and ryback would be getting a main event push in November out of nowhere, would you thought I was wrong or just being a troll?

    ReplyDelete
  93. Only occasionally if I'm afraid a show might be canceled or something.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Yeah I'm kinda obsessed with ratings, i check them whenever tvbtn posts them each day.

    ReplyDelete
  95. So I read that Dreamer is being a douche to Heyman. Without Heyman, he is a nobody. The dude sucked at wrestling. Heyman made him.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I didn't watch a lot of ECW, but it seemed odd to me that his nickname was "The Innovator of Violence" but I don't remember him doing anything more original than hitting people with Singapore canes and chairs.

    ReplyDelete
  97. At least it's not NASCAR's Twitter.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Im still blown away that at the height of Hulkamania all they did to make the Wrestlemania V banners was peel the gold off of the roman numeral I that came before the V. You can see the outline of the I still on the banner.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Is that the "The End is Near" song they'd use for the Invasion and for a few Armageddon PPVs?

    ReplyDelete
  100. BATMAN FOREVER SOUNDTRACK!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  101. All I saw was a tweet where I thought he was obviously joking where he said he never got paid for some ecw banners they showed in the new ECW doc and then heyman flipped his shit. Heyman mentioned a lot of guys kept merch and ECW memorabilia they sold to settle some debts.

    ReplyDelete
  102. He's the innovator of having a career of mundane matches.

    ReplyDelete
  103. A lot of people think falling through a table and staple gunning your nuts makes you a great worker. I actually liked Dreamer as a character but shit like the Da Baldies and the gangstas and tpe etc made me kinda hate ECW fans at that time because it was all garbage. Still I loved sabu when I was like 14 and thought he was best wrestler in the world lol

    ReplyDelete
  104. Most ECW fans are complete idiots.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Innovator of wrestling in a t-shirt

    ReplyDelete
  106. I'm a fan of ECW, but mostly for their 1998 and before stuff. I've seen everyone of their PPV's in chronological order and they go from decent to extremely awful. I respect what ECW did for the business, but I'd say for every good match they had, you had to watch 15 brawls. Their storylines were fun for the most part until they got to the Network stuff.


    That being said, there aren't many ECW shows that I will go out of my way to watch again. I'm fine with a match here and there, but I could easily put 15-20 matches onto a DVD and never have to watch anything else ECW again.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I would have assumed you were trolling in some way.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Well, at least you know he won't quit. Plus, he'll hustle, show loyalty, and display respect, so there's that.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Yeah, I remember Keller (or someone) saying Rhyno just stood there staring at McMahon, not knowing if he was being ribbed or not.

    ReplyDelete
  114. The Offspring's "Smash It Up" also rules.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I'll take a gander every now and then to see how it's doing.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I'm watching Raw from 3-25-02. Tazz v. Mr. Perfect opens the show...Perfect taps out, and then just straight-up claims that he didn't tap after the match. So great. That's the kind of slimy old-school heel shit I miss.

    I know 2002 is considered to mostly be a shitty year, but is it maybe better than it's given credit for?

    ReplyDelete
  117. I can't recall ever having sought out such information. I remember that I always assumed The Office did an enormous number every week and was surprised when I learned that wasn't the case. That's how little I'm aware of ratings.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I've been going through the RAW and Smackdown's from 2002 so I may be able to help.

    Everything from January to WrestleMania is both bad and very frustrating. Both shows actually feel a little better after the brand split because they feel fresher and begin to establish their roster. I'm only in June of 2002 so I can't comment any further. But SmackDown has started to improve, RAW is mostly boring.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Innovator of Violence is a really awesome nickname.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Rock leading the crowd in a "YOU ARE/AN ASSHOLE" chant is just spectacular.

    ReplyDelete
  121. That was great. Crowd kept it going for like a minute too.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Fall 2002 is when things get really bad. And yea, the buildup to Mania was awful
