MonsoonClassic = my favorite YouTube uploader.
One of the best Smackdowns I've watched in years.
Two of my favorites.
Chris & Daniel Benoit?
Here is one from 93http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpXDXvIQNHAHow was this not the Fued after the Cactus Angle? Damm you Bulldog.
To steal one of Jim Ross' lines, WWE is trying to build up Rusev as a heel seemingly by booking him as a face. He's put into an unfair situation by a GM on Raw, he steps in to protect his girlfriend from being bullied by Slaughter, and then he gets into his punishment battle royale and wins the damn thing.
Welcome to 2014 WWE. Where the faces don't protect their friends and are unlikable bullies and the top heels are underdogs every week.
Most of Rusev's WWE run has been face-ish (at least for the 99.9% of the audience that doesn't understand his Bulgarian, the stuff he says is actually quite mean). It could be interesting if leads to Lana controlling him all along, but I'm overthinking and should stop. GRR NOT AMERICAN SO BAD
u speak bulgarian??
Some Russian. Bulgarian is kinda similar, so I understand some of the things he says. And Lana speaks Russian well, but she so sounds like an American trying to sound like one.
well she is an American trying to sound like one so.
So New Day wasn't the usual "dancing darkies" bullshit, they were just really hyped up and excited? I keep seeing stills of this online and I'm somewhat afraid to track down the actual match.
99.9% of the shit the Rock says is quite mean.
I don't understand why I should boo Rusev, he's a fucking hero.He's beloved by his country's leader. He's a proud patriot who fights for his country. He's a tough dude who wins, even when thrown in impossible situations. He goes up against bigger, more experience guys and beats them by submission. He experiences horrendous bigotry from the bottom to the top of his company but he doesn't let it phase him, instead using it to fight harder and better. He's got a gorgeous girlfriend who he loves and protects. He's brave, strong, smart, chivalrous and indomitable.Why would you cheer that dude? He's a badass winner and at the same time a scrappy underdog.Yeah he talks shit, but I'll take Rusev threatening to rip out Big Show's spine to Daniel Bryan doing his sarcastic douchebag comedy routine.
Every year seemingly around wrestlemania, there seems to be cody and gold dust rumors. And I dont think A new day is losing their first feud. So maybe a break up is being planned which would suck. And hopefully Ziggler isn't in a ladder match because I dont see them taking the belt off of Harper and it would suck that they would have Ziggler job at the next ppv after Survivor Series. Plus the guy kinda needs a rest for gods sake.
If your keeping score at home theres 2 "that'll suck" in there.
Jovial black guys is what they seem to be going for.
It's Canadian logic 101 - are they from our country? No? Well they're bad people!
Until they fail to get over, at which point they'll turn heel for some nonsensical reason and they'll give us the usual "They're showing AGGRESSION!" spiel.
New Day's energy reminded me of one of those powerlifting / feats-of-strength Christian ministry groups that have names like "Team Power" or "Jacked for Jesus."Now, I'm sure WWE had planned for New Day to debut this week for a while, but ... coming right off of the Ferguson ruling and the Tamir Rice killing, when a significant portion of the Black American community is frustrated and upset and being confronted again with some awful reminders of this country's awful history of race relations ... to have half (?) of WWE's Black roster dancing and grinning and extra-extra-happy like, "Hey! Nothing's wrong over here! Everything is SO awesome! Yaaaay!" just smells like another example of WWE being out of touch with what's happening in the real world.I'm not saying New Day should be rewritten into the Big E & The Black Panthers, and I wouldn't want WWE to respond to Ferguson by holding half its Black roster off TV (i.e. pushing back New Day's debut), but maybe just tone down New Day's exuberance just a little bit for now.
Two things about Daniel Bryan's RAW and Smackdown appearances that bugged me:1. "The Ryback"2. No interaction with the wife at all? No comment on the wife suddenly turning evil? No comment on the wife planting a kiss on the ex-girlfriend? Are we supposed to be forgetting now that Bryan and Brie are married?
I over thought whether to upvote this way too much
Steamboat's WCW music was fucking TERRIBLE. Who thought that was a good idea? "Sirius" by Alan Parsons Project was perfect for him.
