BoD Daily Update

How Did the WWE Locker Room React to Thursday's NXT Special?

Right now there is a lot of motivation in the WWE locker room to not let the NXT Special blow away the TLC PPV. There is also a feeling that the TLC PPV will be better than it would have been due to the success of NXT Takeover.

Brian Kendrick was backstage at the show and worked a dark match last night against Solomon Crow. Kendrick is looking to get signed as a trainer in NXT.

  1. I swear WWE is trolling me. 2 days before I can officially cancel my Network subscription and they put on a great NXT show and start adding Prime Time to the vault.

  2. There funny thing is that the endings of both REvolution and TLC were/are totally predictable, but with the NXT show that didn't matter because it was great booking and superbly implemented, while TLC's main event will just feel like a bland continuation of the already mind-numbing status quo. Weird, isn't it? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  3. No chance TLC will be half as good as the nxt show. Yup the zayn match was amazing but one thing that made R-evolution awesome was amazing booking. I can guarantee you that even if Rollins vs Cena delivers the goods like zayn the booking at the show will still be fucking shit.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I hope they go all out at TLC and that NXT injects some much needed motivation into the arms of the WWE.


    With all the bickering about negativity or whatnot recently, the WWE needs to generate some buzz. That we should all agree on.

  5. You could just torrent all that stuff

  6. In other words, Ryback vs. Kane will only be a DUD instead of a minus 5 star match.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Kane v. Ryback could be a total disaster the way Kane has looked recently

    ReplyDelete
  8. The problem is that the writers/agents will probably think "overly convoluted but cool looking spot" > actual storyteling.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I just voted for Nas in the song poll. Btw, that song came out in 96 not 94. It doesn't matter but idk. I'm trying to think of the wrestling equivalent of Nas. Someone that had a kickass match 20 years ago that hasn't done anything really noteworthy sense.

    ReplyDelete
  10. WWE improve? I'd've thought they'd just tell NXT to tone it down next time.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Meltzer was talking today how people are saying the WWE is dumb for not being able to do what NXT is doing in terms of buzz but also noted how RAW has so many constraints that you can not do what they are in NXT now. However, it still doesnt excuse the WWE storylines at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Agreee. I've been a Kane fan for a long time, but he's clearly passed the tipping point where he can still put on solid, if unspectacular, matches. Now he just looks slow and tired and sucks the energy out of the room. Not the guy you want against Ryback.

    It's time for Kane to retire, before he overstays his welcome and tarnishes what is a very good legacy up to recently.

    ReplyDelete
  13. He almost killed one of the Uso's by not catching them on a dive. It was brutal.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Self imposed constraints?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Only the WWE could turn a 2 hour wrestling show into a 3 hour one, but feature less wrestling. I swear if TLC opens with a talking segment I'm going to fill up my swear jar in the space of a minute or so.

  19. I got it! Nas is Jericho. Illmatic is like the Dean Malenko feud.They've done some aight stuff since then but be honest, both have one masterpiece that anyone really gives a shit about.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I wonder if they are going to go with a Zayn/Owens/Neville at the next NXT live special

    ReplyDelete
  21. Much like Road Dogg (was that Cody?), who also overstayed his welcome at that stage...

    ReplyDelete
  22. A triple threat main with those three could blow the roof off :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Goddammit, I need this to happen.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'd personally allow Zayn and Owens story to develop on its own. Adding Neville to the mix may water down the abhorrence story Zayn/Owens can narrate.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm prepared to file it under "Highly Entertaining Disaster."

    ReplyDelete
  26. The Triple H/Steph thing would be Oochie Wally?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Gin Blossoms' "New Miserable Experience" is such a great record. Doug Hopkins was a great songwriter before he offed himself.

    ReplyDelete
  28. "There is also a feeling that the TLC PPV will be better than it would have been due to the success of NXT Takeover."

    I appreciate the sentiment they were trying to get across, but I'd rather believe the wrestlers would try to provide a kick-ass show every time out, not just when the developmental league makes the main product look like amateur hour.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think I've read Kane is more than willing to retire but the money is just too good.

    ReplyDelete
  30. if you're going in terms of great feuds as great albums, The HBK feud has to be "Illmatic," even if it wasn's exactly 20 years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Are Kane and Big Show the last two wrestlers who debuted in the 90s who are still on the active WWE roster and on TV most Mondays? I was trying to think of any others and drawing a blank.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Did everyone forget how great a track "Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia)" is? One of the best examples of early 90s jazz/hip-hop jams.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I dislike Brian Kendrick. Of all the things that sucked in TNA, his terrible character may have been the thing that sucked the most.

    ReplyDelete
  34. He was really good when he was in RoH and I liked him in the WWE with London but after that he was fairly useless.

    ReplyDelete
  35. If the guy is making money and WWE is willing to keep him around, why should he retire? I imagine it helps supplement his income for his insurance business.

    ReplyDelete
  36. He also very clearly stopped giving a shit

    ReplyDelete
  37. Steen is the second baddest-ass heel on the roster after Lesnar.


    And that is sad.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thank you...I knew there had to be others. Maybe it's because Goldust went away for a while before coming back with an updated look that he doesn't feel as stale. And of course, one of the problems with Kane and Big Show is as giants/super heavyweights is that they've lost a LOT of mobility, so they seem a lot older then they are.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'd have Zayn kayfabe and injury and have to give the title up after finally winning it, have a tournament with Neville and Owens in the final, KO beats him and then Sami makes his return to run a Zayn-Owens program and give them 12 minutes at Wrestlemania.

    ReplyDelete
  40. is Henry still around?

    ReplyDelete
  41. I grew up with a guy named Brian Kendrick. Hated him.

    ReplyDelete
  45. He's what they want Rusev to be; the difference being, Rusev's jingoistic foreign heel schtick is a wrestling trope from the NINETEEN-FIFTIES, whereas Kevin Owens has more agility, a badass move set, and far more presence.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Yeah I know right? He was born like 40 miles away from where I'm sitting actually. But fuck Brian Kendrick, we don't claim him.


    Now Daniel on the other hand, that's all us. You're welcome.

    ReplyDelete
  47. there is a difference between writing and booking. NXT is booked while WWE is written, big difference IMO and why one is so much better.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Does HHH count as "active roster" technically?

    ReplyDelete
  49. At some point, the main roster will quit caring and just collect whatever paycheck they can. The longer people get stuck on the treadmill, the more apathetic they are.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Parker made him look like a million bucks, too. Owens should thank him for cracking his nose, made it look even more badass.

    ReplyDelete
  51. That palm strike was one of the sickest things I've seen in awhile, because I could imagine the cracking noise being a combination of the poor bastard's nose and CJ's hand going kablooey.

  53. Watching this Prime Time, I have to wonder if Tony Atlas knew he was still allowed to work out his legs.

  54. Mentioned this in another thread today. I'm booking William Regal to fill the role of Bruno Sammartino while Zayn recovers from the storyline injury, in a reverse Steamboat/Savage dynamic (Regal's promo on Steen after the special was breathtakingly awesome). When Owens beats the piss out of Regal in a couple of weeks, have Zayn make the triumphant return and beat high holy Hell all over Full Sail.

  57. Reading forums where comic book nerds debate who would win in a battle is mind numbing once you get into it.


    Could Superman survive Galactus? You get everything from Galactus one-timing Supes into dust, to Superman holding his own enough to narrowly escape, and then it devolves into comparing the strength of different pictured blasts from Galactus based on..?

  58. Jimmy Hart had the best ringwear.

  59. I don't think they would send a guy out there to legitimately have his nose broken, which I'm pretty sure was reported as legit after the show.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I wouldn't count him as active. He's more or less retired but occasionally wrestles a match or two a year as a special attraction. Also I'd argue the difference between Kane and Big Show and someone like Henry is that they've been consistently at or near the top of the card for their entire run, while Henry has been a little more midcard, plus lately he's been out with injuries so often he doesn't feel like a regular fixture.

  62. The fact that McMahon could not even come up with a sound clarification why the WWE champion was off TV for months illustrates how unimaginative and antiquate Vince McMahon has become.

  63. More than anything, it really just illustrates how terrible this Brock idea was from the start.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'll be the first to admit, the Great Experiment with Brock Lesnar is looking like a failure. I had such high hopes once the shock of the Streak being ended had worn off, but the finances of bringing in Lesnar just made it cost-prohibitive to make the whole deal work.

  68. What? A cop bought eggs for a woman who was caught shoplifting them?

    YEAH. RIGHT. I bet this poor woman was just trying to buy eggs, and as she left, the store's security-beeper thing went off by accident, and cops parachuted through the ceiling, with an AK-47...no, no, a BAZOOKA! And shot the lady right in the face with it, and her head blew-up and the cops then said she was ugly! And hopefully a well informed, non-racially bias hero, like a basketball player, will wear a shirt that says "Hey, Cops, are lives cheaper by the dozen eggs?"

  69. It sucks, maybe if this whole thing had happened two years earlier when PPV buys were still a thing...maybe they could've justified bringing him in more.

  76. Reposting from another site, because it's tragically spot-on.

    "Overall, I gave (NXT Takeover R Evolution) a 4/10.

    Kevin Owens is ok, but I don’t think the gimmick is ever going to stand out, he clearly needs to be in a bear costume and come out riding a unicycle. That will grab people’s attention once he’s on the big stage.

    Tag Title match was interesting, but I feel both teams lack a little something. Maybe both need a little person dressed as an anthropomorphic animal, this may be a bit of overkill with Kevin Owens new appearance, but this is the only way sports entertainers can stand out.

    The women had a great match, but the feud was not very believable. No one wants to see women wrestling over being the best, this feud should have been centered on Charlotte and Sasha fighting to see who can make out with Finn Balor. Also, the match in no way resembled what a real fight between women would be like, I didn’t see one instance of hair pulling or slapping of asses. A crowd won’t stand this lack of attention to detail.

    Speaking of Finn Balor his tag partner for the night is struggling to get over, mostly because he cannot cut a promo. His next feud should be with a bigger wrestler like Baron Corbin or Bull Dempsey and his promos should entirely consist of him mouthing Japanese while Ole
    Anderson is in the back on a microphone speaking in English and referring to his opponent as Godzilla. Now that is comedy gold.

    Finally, the main event. Solid match but the build up had no sizzle, if the go home show of NXT had involved a series of photoshopped images of Adrian Neville with bad teeth, or if Sami Zayn had dumped poop on Neville from the rafters, then you would have a program people can really get behind.

    Obviously the show is still in development, if HHH can spend a bit more time under the learning tree of Vince and Kevin Dunn, I’m sure this show will turn around in no time."

  99. If he ever makes it to the main roster, his absolute ceiling is probably a Kofi Kingston-type run where he winds up with a token Intercontinental Title run, then finds his niche as the Ricky Morton in a tag team. If they insist on keeping him and Balor together as a tag team, they at least need to give him a new look to help him keep abreast; otherwise Balor will leave him behind.

    A great read, with my favorite paragraph being something that is so insanely true.

    "Women today are schooled in victimhood, taught to be aggressively vulnerable and convinced that the slightest of perceived infractions, approaches or clumsy misunderstandings represents "assault," "abuse" or "harassment." That may work in the safe confines of campus, where men can have their academic careers destroyed on the mere say-so of a female student. "

    The nanny state is a direct result of 12 years of Bloomberg, with the "progressive" de Blasio continuing it, despite it going against EVERYTHING he campaigned for last year.

  149. DiBlasio got picked simply because nobody wanted Quinn or Weiner in charge

    Eventually, it had to go to the City Council, though. It won't pass, there are enough votes against it in the council and the Progressive Caucus isn't as strong as it was six months ago. Does way too much harm.

  151. They need to beat BROCK a bunch of he's not coming back. I don't see how him dropping the belt to reigns is going to make Reigns this big star.

    Hell if they did a storyline similar yo Zayn and Neville with Reigns and Cena that would make Reigns a bigger star. Instead of "you can't win the big one," CENA would say, "Roman you can't do anything on your own. You were a big deal with the Sheild but on your own you haven't done anything." Crna could be all tweenery too just like Neville.

  152. Saw that twice in the theatres as a kid. I feel old now.

  153. Christine Quinn seemed to have it wrapped up but then never actually campaigned or did anything to rally the gay community.


    The asian was corrupt.


    Anthony Weiner was well....yea.


    Castamitidis was not a serious candidate.


    Who else?

    I'm watching the 1998 NBA All-Star game. I forgot they wore their own teams' jerseys back then.

  155. I saw Home Alone 2 the Tuesday after it came out. I don't think me and my dad ever laughed so hard.

    ReplyDelete
  156. ... God Almighty, that movie's almost twenty-five years old.

    ReplyDelete
  157. The Daniel Stern electrocution scene in Home Alone 2 was the absolute best in the theaters, and the blow torch-gasoline toilet scene as well.

  158. He's also in a tiny but awesome indie movie called Blue Ruin in a small, pivotal role.

  159. Hence why only something like 22% of registered voters voted. It would've been higher if "None of the above" was an option

  161. Having watched Home Alone about 400 times, it really bugs me how the movie really makes no sense.

  163. Would you hire Caliber to write for your paper? Based solely on his writing skills, not his obvious bat-shit-craziness.

  164. fine, enjoy your bean based beverage. I hope you're lucky enough to get that little cube of pork that comes in cans of pork and beans in your next cup of piping hot bean juice.

    ReplyDelete
  165. Yeah, esp where the parents weren't arrested for neglect.

    ReplyDelete
  166. Hence another reason why DeBlasio is backing away from it publicly. He knows it's a loser. He can still tell his supporters "look how hard I fought for it!" without looking like a loser (well, more of a loser) to the general public.

  167. The WWE needs a legitimate cruiserweight division in the worst fucking way. Turn it into the purest of the wrestling divisions and let the workers dazzle with the crazy moves to inject some freshness into Monday nights. Give it to Kenta as a personal challenge to make it reputable, and throw in Rey Mysterio on occasion as a special attraction as the Godfather of the division.

    Quinn would have been a great Mayor, same "fuck off" attitude as Bloomberg, but not as far to the right.


    John Liu was a good guy who let his inner demons make bad decisions. I like John a lot, but after this year, he's done in professional politics.


    I was a fan of Adolfo Carrion, but he didn't do enough to get his name out there.


    Even if there was no way that they could win, they would have made better mayors than BdB. Guy was all about himself from jump street in a way that a lot of the other candidates weren't.

  169. Old Man Marley just lets him stay in the house by himself? The family never finds out about what happened, it doesn't make the news?

    That's what he use to be refered to when I was younger, one of my friends who use to watch wrestling kept jokingly saying that MVP's entrance should have gone like this.
    "Go go Power Rangers.....I'm coming!"

    ReplyDelete
  174. Watching RoH Night of the Grudges. The "Pure Wrestling" stuff was so damn boring.

    ReplyDelete
  175. I just remember Liu stumbling bad in the debates. Quinn seemed uncomfortable with being the frontrunner and did everything possible to make herself less prominent.


    Plus, I had no idea she was gay, which come on, should've been a big deal

  176. If I ran a homeless newspaper, I wouldn't hire Caliber.

  177. No they don't. They just need to treat the belts they have with respect. Adding a cruiserweight division will just result in another champion they have doing jobs in nontitle matches.

  178. AJ v. London MOTYC

  179. Haven't got to that yet. Just finished Chance Beckett vs. Matt Stryker.

  180. I've no doubt he'd be the kind of guy that only wants to write about what he feels like, not what he's told to.

    I'm sure Extant could elaborate on this too but like, the difference between a "writer" and a "reporter" is hilariously obvious within about 4 seconds of the first interview.

  182. At least there they didn't try to "set anyone on fire." There the fire was just to keep the other Wyatts out.

    "Writer"


    I roll my eyes whenever anyone uses that word to describe themselves.

  186. Yea, I learned early on that 99 percent of the assignments I cover suck and the goal is to go there, get the photos, get the quotes and get out.

  187. I'm not saying Vince would do it right; in a perfect world you jettison the U.S. Title and turn the Intercontinental Title into what it should be (the workrate belt, plus a stepping stone for up-and-comers). That gives you a chance to have your smaller workers go for a title that has a cool prestige to it once you re-establish it with guys like Kidd, Kenta and maybe even Neville.

    I'll say this, though: Vince better get the fuck over his big man fetish if he hasn't already done so, because I've seen the future stars of his company, and there ain't a damn one that's over 205 lbs. and 6' tall.
