Predictions of failure

Hey Scott, big fan and all that. I've been thinking a bit about Wyatt, and I'd like to think I saw the problems with his gimmick a bit earlier than other people (e.g. he can't do any of the stuff he promises, the gaspy promo is repetitive as hell). So my question for you is this, has there been a time in which a good deal of people were raving about a wrestler and you had a strong feeling that they just wouldn't work out and then they proceeded to fizzle? Who were they and why did you know that it wouldn't work?

​Well I knew Raven was going to die on the vine in WWE, but then that was hardly a Nostradamus-level pick.  I knew they would give up on Bo Dallas pretty quickly and that's exactly what happened.  There's tons of cases in WCW, but that was different animal, where typically it was because WCW fucked it up and not because of anything they did.  ​I can't think of any other cases specifically off the top of my head, though.  

Comments

  1. I'll say one thing I liked about Bray was his music was really cool. Like this should be on the radio, cool.

    On the opposite side, I have to say I totally missed on Archibald Peck in Chikara. I thought it was dumb, but he has brought us a rivalry with Colt Cabana because he was using a giant rabbit for testing hair growth products, a rivalry with a football player over the girl, losing the girl, turning in Mixed Martial Archie, getting kicked out of Chikara, returning as the Handsome and Mysterious Stranger with a bird named Sapphire, watching Sapphire get killed by the football player, getting his revenge on the football player and the ex-girlfriend by slopping her, getting thrown through time by being backfisted by Eddie Kingston, disappearing when he got backfisted again when his double showed up, wrestling as a tree, showing up as Chikara returned in a DeLorean and getting killed both as the tree and band leader by Deucilion. He also got destroyed by Ryback on a Smackdown episode.

    He has entertained me more than any other wrestler in the last three years.

    And I thought he'd suck.

  2. I never would have thought Austin would reach the heights that he did especially when he was still nursing a broken neck after Summerslam 97, but I was totally wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  3. They should've had Cena lose at Wrestlemania to Wyatt by him snapping and getting disqualified. At least it would have added to the whole corruption storyline. Bray was hot at that time but did nothing interesting since. On top of that he lost his followers and didn't get anyone new to join him. All those rambling promos he does means nothing because he never really does anything to back up the talk.

  4. Lots of great matches to choose from for that set -- but I hope we'd get all of the early 1990s commercials as well

    I KNEW Glacier was going to bomb the moment he made his debut. And he had like 8 months of hype vids, they were on so long that I thought it was Big Kevin, and I think Glacier debuted 6 months or so later.

    I also thought Austin would be back in ECW within 2 months with that Ringmaster gimmick. Wasn't exactly clairvoyant with that prediction.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I think Scott would also say that he thought the Brock experiment would fail during his first initial push because he would always mention how fans were completely apathetic to Brock in his 2002 Raw rants.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Speaking of Big Kev, I thought he and Scott Hall would bomb and be quickly bured by Hogan and friends when they jumped ship in 96.

    He said the same thing about Batista, and maybe Orton too. And Rocky, but in that case everyone was saying that.

    ReplyDelete
  9. The thing about Batista was that he was never intended to be a big deal anyway. I don't think WWE had big hopes for the guy and was just happenstance he got over the way he did.


    I forget Scott's original views on Orton, but I remember Scott jumping on the Randy bangwagon when he was doing those Orton injury updates.

  10. I think this post sums up why I can't do Chikara.

  19. Adam "Colorado" CurryDecember 27, 2014 at 11:25 PM

    I don't dislike it, it's just one of those shows that I'll only watch if there's nothing else on.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Why would that crush my spirits? I think she genuinely thinks that... probably because I have never tried to nail her and basically think of her as a dude.

  21. I got several recommendations to have that be the next show I binge on.

    Most of them were saying shit like "well, I got spanked as a kid". So did I, I remember having sore ass cheeks for a half hour or so, I don't remember getting hit with a branch to the point where police and doctors had to get involved. I mean, what the fuck? Did he have bet with Ray Rice, and when the elevator video came out Rice was like "your move, motherfucker"?

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love The Reign Dance idea.

    I would have Reigns interrupt every backstage interview and segment, and they go "Uh, what are you doing?"

    "Just Roman around."

    Then he points to his hiking boots, looks directly into the camera and has a facial spasm of some sort.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Don't fade on me now... i feel like I am going to be up for a while...

    ReplyDelete
  50. You would rather have a cock in your ass then be seen as an asshole? That's really gay. You should change your name to Faggotron 5000. That's how gay that is.

    If being a "lonely, contentious arse" is far less palatable than being Faggotron 5000 AND you conceded to being a gay man, then you're ultra gay and should be renamed to QueerBox 360. That's how gay that is.

    By the way, I'm a "lonely, contentious arse"? Why? Because I post on this forum and fuck around and have fun? Everybody here does that. Is it because it was a black/ebola joke I made? You're a thin-skinned QueerBox 360. Eee-yuck.

  52. The AP thing got twisted into some debate about corporal punishment, when the real issue was the SEVERITY that AP used it. I mean there's a difference between spanking a kid and then beating them with a switch to where they are bleeding and require medical assistance.

  58. Never mind, it was the black dude. I remember that story.

    Um... I think the bigger shitbag is HIM, because how the fuck do you actually beat your four-year-old flesh and blood with a big stick to the point of injury like that? The people defending him are either a) ignorant to the reality of it, b) mentally ill, c) incredibly old school to the point of idiocy, or d) willing to defend black people at any cost, because this guy would be FUCKED, so FUCKED, if it was a white guy.

  85. Except if Reigns really is losing steam with the smarts, then Rollins will get a MAJOR face pop for cashing in at Mania. If we get a Lesnar/Goldberg situation where the fans just turn on both Brock and Roman, then whomever interrupts (Rollins) will definitely get cheered like a conquering hero for it.

    The heel-cashes-in-on-face MITB scenario doesn't work if the heel is more over than the face.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Ah it's lord Tensai. Nice. When is the Daniel Bryan stuff. I thought it started the show but it was a rock promo that the crowd was in to. Isn't there a sheamus promo or something?

    ReplyDelete
  99. Yeah, it really has no replay value whatsoever. I liked his first WM match against Cena just fine, but the second is seriously in the top 10 worst WM main events ever.

    ReplyDelete
  100. It still blows my mind that they ran Reigns vs. Rollins on a random episode of RAW a few months ago and had Reigns go over in 10 minutes or less. That was fully set up as a PPV headliner and it's already been wasted for no reason.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Well the house next door to me was sold...

  111. Some girls are hotter as brunettes probably, but I'd be more comfortable with Rusev plowing Lana with his subhuman cock every night if she was brunette because IMO she'd definitely be worse looking.

    ReplyDelete
  112. It had to bother Punk the whole crowd chanted for Daniel Bryan during his post wrestlemania Raw match vs Mark Henry, when Henry was at his most over. That had to suck.

    ReplyDelete
  113. She really looks a lot different hen she isn't "Lana"

    ReplyDelete
  114. Even still just big hairy lug squirming all over her would gross me out. Too unseemly. I'd rather picture Rusev with some behemoth like Kane's wife.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Yeah she's nearly naked and shit.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I don't see this 'Rollins cashes in on Roman' situation happening for a few reasons...

    * WWE's default position is a long-term face champ defeating all comers. If Reigns really is the guy they're pushing as the next big thing, they're not going to immediately cut short his big Mania moment by having Rollins cash in. (Not to mention the fact that the smarky WM crowd would absolutely pop like crazy at seeing Rolling cash in to beat Reigns.)

    * Summerslam is WAY too long for a 'chase.' What are both men going to do for those 4-5 months? Rollins cheaply retains in defenses against Cena, Orton, etc. while Reigns just rotely beats the stale heels like Kane, Big Show and company? The more likely scenario is that Reigns would just beat Rollins at Backlash a month later and win the belt, making the whole cash-in pointless. OR, even more pointlessly, Reigns would beat Rollins the night after Mania to kick off the 'Roman Empire Era' in front of the bigger TV audience.


    Rollins has been booked so lamely over the last few months that I'd actually suggest he cash in on Cena/Lesnar and then ALSO win the Royal Rumble. With the 'best night in WWE history' under his belt, he emerges as a huge threat and a legit champion going into Wrestlemania. It also gives WWE a few more weeks to decide if Reigns is really the guy or if they prefer to go with Ziggler, Ambrose or someone. Or hell, it opens the door to the dream match of Rollins vs. Ambrose vs. Reigns and they can even throw a pissed-off Lesnar in there to make it a four-way and to make Lesnar's last match less of a foregone conclusion. (And to avoid a Lesnar/Goldberg situation.)

    ReplyDelete
  117. But to me, that sort of thing doesn't bother me. With a girl that hot, I'd be like "oh, of course you had sex with an absolute alpha male and maybe an MMA guy" or whatever. What's bad is when... well you know.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Jericho coming out and dumping the booze on punk and running him down with all this cheap heat family trash talk is really funny.

    ReplyDelete
  119. She's the real monster.

    ReplyDelete
  120. To me, a thing like Rusev is to close that other thing.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Fair enough.

    Maybe it's because I'm part Greek, and Rusev looks like a Greek dude on steroids, and it doesn't bother me.

  135. Yes, but they're mostly straight out of Africa (usually Sudan) so they're extremely black - like, black black - and they're really tall, skinny and to be honest, not so hot.

  141. You mean like KOTR 2000 where HHH lost the title without being pinned?

    ReplyDelete
  142. That's a longstanding WWE thing though. Rock got rematches after he lost to Austin at WM 99, HHH at WM 2000 and Austin at WM 2001. Heck, Batista vs HHH was spread out over a summer AFTER Batista had beat HHH cleanly twice. WWE likes booking title rematches quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  143. You mean like they ruined Austin vs Rock by having Austin squash Rock at IYH: DX? Then again when he ran in at SS 98 and beat Rock like a child, then was kicking his ass the next night until interference ensued? Not that Reigns and Rollins are Austin/Rock level, but if people give a shit about the rivalry then it'll make money regardless of bad booking.

  145. Urgh.


    I'm not a fan of AndyPG, but the dude does a full Raw recap BEFORE I've even woken up. And I live in the UK, so the turn-around is ridiculous. For that alone he deserves props. But people online can't merely dislike something, they have to make it personal.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Basically, they ran a bunch of standout matches from 11p til the wee hours with Tony and Bobby doing segments in between.

    ReplyDelete
  147. I'd also add the Steiners/Nasty Boys U.S. tag title match from HH '90.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Nope, it's because he had a rack that put Sable to shame.

  149. I live in the UK too and I've frequently appreciated being able to read what happened on Raw the next day whilst I'm on my way to work.

    ReplyDelete
  150. I have to hold my hand up and admit that I'm as guilty as anyone of trying to stop Meekin from posting. Which I did with point-by-point criticism of his writing, with suggestions of how to improve it, echoing what others were saying. He didn't listen to his audience, he deserves what he got. Caliber likewise was entitling himself in a way like Meekin was.


    I can see why people might THINK that AndyPG also was doing the same thing, but all of this is a stupid overreaction to him saying "PG Christmas" instead of "I'm going to post a bit extra since it's quiet over Christmas".

  157. Rollins cashes in during the match, hits the curb stomp on Lesnar and wins. Starts celebrating, Reigns spears Rollins and pins him. Walks out with the title.

    Get's stripped the next night because he technically lost the Lesnar match via DQ when Rollins hit the curb stomp.

    Cena immediately protests this unfair decision, get's title shot and wins.

    Seamless transition to Cena.

  158. To be fair, WWE wanted the strap on ADR for their Lat Am tour, and this was set in stone for months prior. Then Punk happened and they were painted into a corner. That whole period was pretty strange, with Del Rio cashing in, then losing to Cena a month later, then regaining a month after that, before dropping it to Punk the month after that. It's why they should have prolonged the 'Summer of Punk' angle - let Del Rio cash in on Cena at Summerslam (after beating Rey for the vacant title), then have Punk return and fuck shit up later.

    Speaking of ADR - never the biggest fan of his, but his booking was *terrible* consistently during his run. You book the guy to win the Rumble out of nowhere, he chokes at Mania, jobs to a jobber the next month, does nothing til winning MITB, then has one month of obscurity with the briefcase before cashing in?!

  163. I'd be willing to possibly concede that.

  164. I think he reviewed my tape of the first one a couple of Web sites ago.

    I'll be honest, I'm not into black girls. Not a racial thing, or a hard and fast rule, but I just don't generally find them attractive. I'm more into Hispanic and middle eastern broads. Though the one middle eastern chick I did fuck , it was like the Taker/Taker match version of sex. Just terrible.

  166. A lot of those matches have been rehashed over and over.

    Give me a "Best of WCW Saturday Night" or something.

    ReplyDelete
  167. That was during that second one.
    Not much happened in the first one, except Bischoff, when the group wanted pizza, saying they should "call Vince".

  168. Tyson Kidd vs Hulk Hogan would be twelve different kinds of awesome.

  169. I think only 4 of those matches have been on any other boxset, granted they may be the best matches but still...


    Someone should come up with a best of Thunder boxset if that is even remotely possible?

  170. What, no Chamber of Horrors Match? Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal? Monster truck battle?
    Man, Havoc had some crappy matches even by WCW standards....

    The packaging should advertise the Goldberg-DDP match, but the DVD should run out just as the match was starting, forcing you to buy the next volume of "Best of Monday Nitro" to see it.

    Might as well be consistent with it...

    The All Nighters were great, filled up a tape on SLP with wrestling AND stupid fun segments from the announcers.

    A mess of an ending where bad guys run in and interfere to end the match in a double DQ, withHogan and Tyson posing at the end.

  174. Yeah, and I've stated that Meekin basically asked for it with his behavior, "pay attention to MEEEEE" persona, and childish reaction to criticism. Some if the comments thrown at him were still classic trolling and was over the line, though.

  175. Gwinnett Braves I believe.

  176. I would love the all nighter shows too. I had them on VHS back in the day and stayed up late to watch them and everything. Anybody know of a place to find these shows?

  177. Best of WCWSN would be awesome.

  178. Loved that match. Havoc '89 was just an amazing show.

  179. It sucks that Oliver Humperdink died. He would have been perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  180. You mean beat him in under 10 minutes a week before they were scheduled to go at it on PPV before Reigns got that hernia.

    ReplyDelete
  181. I don't see him failing, I just see him being another Diesel or Lex Luger.
