  12. As I said in another thread even with this from Vince we all know Vince changes his mind 100 times a day. Bryan will be in and win at mania. It's all about the share holders and the 9.99's and the cancellations speak louder than the booing philly fans.

    Of course, Daniel Bryan winnin the Rumble and actually being part of a one-on-one main event at WM wouldn't have been repeating a damn thing.

    ReplyDelete
  16. He does not want a repeat of last year? When DB saved the show? Does he want the fans to trash the WM main event then?

    The backlash from last night has gotten picked up by USA Today and ESPN. Well, at least Vince got the mainstream coverage he so desperately desires

    ReplyDelete
  17. What a disaster, first The Bunny quits and now mass WWE Network cancellations. Can things get any worse?

    ReplyDelete
  18. time for HHH to have another long car ride with Vince.

    ReplyDelete
  19. This Reigns business reminds me a lot of Sheamus winning the title in late 2008. Except they stopped that shit before Mania. I'm pretty sure Reigns is gonna end having a pretty similar career to Sheamus too.


    His reign will bomb out before June, they'll take the title off him and move him down the card. Maybe even try a heel turn or two. Reigns will keep getting better and in two or three years, will reach his potential and probably even become a pretty good worker. But it will be too late to do anything about it because he'll be just another guy by that point and he'll slide right into that upper tier slot occupied by Sheamus right now.


    Not a bad spot but a total fail given what he could have been. Samoan Sheamus.

    ReplyDelete
  20. This all feels like those old movies where the villain (Vince McMahon) ties the damsel (Roman Reigns) to the tracks while a train (we neckbeards and oh yeah a huge chunk of Vince's paying customers) bears down, except Vince already shot the hero (Bryan) and threw his corpse in the desert.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The people DEMAND a fake Roman Reigns account where the description says: "SUFFERIN SUCCOTASH, I'm headed to Wrestlemania!"

    ReplyDelete
  22. Let's say it's true that they didn't that kind of backlash. Now that they're aware of it they'll take Reigns out of the Mania main event right? Right?

  34. You know if you replace Ted Dibiase with the name of Vince McMahon and then replace the million dollar belt with network/subscribers, Jake Roberts' promo at Wrestlemania 6 still kicks ass.

    Considering the mood when Roman entered the Rumble maybe they should have had him come out to Rains of Castamere instead. The Philly crowd was definitely ready to Red Wedding that bitch.

    And who are you, Bryan said
    That I am jobbed so low
    Only a goat of a different coat
    Is all the truth I know
    A mane of hair and a thick beard
    But I still get big pops
    And mine are long and loud my boss
    As long and loud as his
    But Roman wins, so Roman wins
    The Reigns of Castamere
    Now the Reigns rules o'er this world
    With no one there to hear
    And now the Reigns rules o'er your world
    With not a soul to hear

  38. One thing that rarely gets brought up: we are at the same point as we were before survivor series making that ppv moot. Authority is still here and no one was fired.

  39. "...that it will be a repeat of last year's show and that he does not want that to happen."


    This statement was very humorous to me. There was a way to prevent what happened last year...

    ReplyDelete
  40. Boy, Fast Lane sure looks like a helluva show. The guy in the WM main event with the belt won't even be on it!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Pretty sure the only way to save this is to turn Reigns heel like Rock did, then beat Lesnar and have his first defense against Bryan.

    ReplyDelete
  42. One huge portion of their revenue is now internet-based (the network), and there's no reason for this neglect and/or stubbornness.

    Talk about a cavalcade of bad news, lol. If the WWE is running Raw in the northeast tonight, they're in real trouble.

    ReplyDelete
  44. That's what I'm thinking. Reigns needs a rocky 97 heel turn.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Or build to a Bryan title match at SummerSlam, but that's probably waiting too long.


    I'm with someone who says that after the house show business collapses under Reigns, they'll have Rollins win via MITB and then John Cena will SAVE THE DAY at SummerSlam. D-Bry will just waste time in the midcard.

    ReplyDelete
  46. The fall will maintain once Roman Reigns!

    ReplyDelete
  47. christopher joeckelJanuary 26, 2015 at 7:16 AM

    They don't have to put DB in the main event, but if they don't they need to put the title on Rollins TONIGHT. Fans can get behind Rollins vs. Reigns and I think feeding Brock to Bryan will be acceptable. What is NOT acceptable is another fuel with Kane or Wyatt

    ReplyDelete
  48. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©January 26, 2015 at 7:16 AM

    Is it wrong that if Vince were to die tomorrow, the first words that would pop in my head would be "good riddance"?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Yeah, wouldn't want a similar (or THE SAME) main event two years in a row would you Vince? Why don't be just book Cena Vs Rock for this year?

    ReplyDelete
  50. What storm is more troublesome? The real one or the proverbial shit storm they've created?

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think fans would be fine with Brock vs. Rollins after last night, truth be told.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Let's be real: Rock wasn't there because they didn't expect backlash.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Fans will only get behind that if there's a double turn. Otherwise, Roman over Rollins? That's a guarantee for a crowd riot.

    ReplyDelete

    Bryan just shouldn't have been in the rumble.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I guess Vince should just book Cena/Rock III or Rock/Austin IV instead of putting Bryan in the main event. Keep it fresh and avoid a repeat.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Given that they actually had the freakin' Rock come in and paid him a bunch of money just to prevent Reigns from being shat on by the crowd, one would think they *did* have an idea of just how big the backlash was going to be.

    Also, here's an idea....when you're booking a big babyface star and know there's going to be backlash, maybe BOOK SOMEONE ELSE WHO'S ACTUALLY OVER to win the damn Royal Rumble.

    ReplyDelete
  59. WWE is a complete mess right now and all of their problems are totally avoidable.

  72. One unmentioned important aspect of the Rumble:

    I think the fat kid who freaked out about Rock beating Punk in 2013 was there hard camera side.

    ReplyDelete
  73. The only thing that can save Wrestlemania now is that still-active MITB briefcase. Rollins should announce outright that he's cashing in after Lesnar/Reigns, to give himself a guaranteed shot against a tired opponent. Or, even better, someone had this great suggestion in one of other threads: book Rollins/Bryan for the briefcase on the Mania undercard. There's your avenue to getting Bryan into the title bout and saving the show.

    Not long after the show was over, I found myself back in the ER with Mrs. Stranger, as Brock Lesnar disease continues to be a thorn in her/my side, so I find myself in a pissy mood this morning with lack of sleep.

    I fail to see which part of that equation they thought wouldn't lead to a lot of backlash I'm guessing the last part.
    Pretty much every internet wrestling site had something about potential backlash if Bryan didn't win.

  87. Circa 1997 no less. I just don't get WHY we have to push Reigns NOW. The guy needs more seasoning in the singles role.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Sorry to hear about Mrs Stranger. If Brock can beat it, so can she!

    ReplyDelete
  95. When Vince said that he knows what the fans like better than the fans do a long time ago, I knew they were in trouble. The man has such a huge ego.Basically telling the fans that we'll only like who HE chooses for us to like. No one can get over organically anymore. You guys like Bryan? Fine, we'll build him up and then have him wrestle 10 minutes in the Rumble and get eliminated halfway through. You guys like Ryback? Fine, we'll have him lose his first match to Punk by a lowblow and then we'll have Cena pound on him for a couple months AND turn Ryback heel! You guys are cheering for Ryback again when he returned to help Team Cena at Survivor Series? Fine, we'll have him be the 2nd one eliminated from the Survivor Series match. You guys like Ambrose? Fine, we'll give him a movie to shoot and take him off TV when he is getting super hot (just like they just did with Orton as well) and we'll have him job to exploding TV's, candy canes, and holograms.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I asked this last night:


    What other company actively opposes its own fanbase and audience? I'm honestly drawing a blank. I can't think of any company that doesn't just ignore its fanbase (that happens all the time), but actively fights against it so hard like WWE does. It's like Vince doesn't have any real competition anymore so he's decided his own audience is the enemy now.

    ReplyDelete
  97. You know who did nothing and looks the best out of all of this? Brock.


    Seriously, the last time he left, he was booed hardcore. This time? He's gonna get cheered HUGE.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Hey guys, do you remember in 1998 when Stone Cold was super red hot and was in the rumble. Then half way through the match he was eliminated by Faarooq in under 10 minutes and Rocky won the rumble? Those were............HEY WAIT A MINUTE. That never happened!

  99. Can we offer Vince Jordan a one shot deal to return and hear his thoughts? I'll give him the token Rumble return pop.

  119. Ill take this thread to bitch about the announcing. Holee fuck was it ever annoying to hear them constantly giving out Rumble stats.. i know those by the numbers things are fun but please, a little moderation? They must have had Rain Maj in their headpieces. I was not told there would be math. Also, i really wonder how Vince used to think JR was too Southern but has no problem with his hillbilly color guy yakkinn it up with Maggle and Jurrih.

  142. I'd say you're in the minority on that one. WWF1987 even said it himself: Rollins could be the World champ on the *undercard*. That says all you need to know about that title's relevance.

  144. If WWE does intend going with Roman-Brock as the main event of WM, the only way I can see them salvage the situation is by doing a double turn.

    I've always been a smark but keep it tame. What they did last night was unacceptable.

  146. Verne at least had the excuse of being a traditionalist. Vince is a supposed visionary.

    ReplyDelete
  147. Maybe they'll book Daniel Bryan against the Undertaker, lol

    ReplyDelete
  148. I'm surprised they don't run CENA vs Brock more. It's RIGHT THERE in front of them.

    ReplyDelete
  149. imagine this were a football team and we all wanted russell wilson to be our qb but they give us johnny football as the starter instead

    ReplyDelete
  150. Worst made appearances last night. I think WWE broke him down, though. He laughs at things more than getting enraged or bitingly clever

    ReplyDelete
  151. If they are giving it free in February they are giving away a PPV and NXT special for free.

    ReplyDelete
  152. This is cool, Undertaker filmed his Daniel Bryan reaction from last night and uploaded a gif: http://i.imgur.com/UnJMkih.gif

    Obviously I don't mean what I said earlier, I'm just upset more than I was last year, but if Vince won't be forced into retirement, how do you stop the madness?

    ReplyDelete
  154. Was it one of those cauliflower pie crusts? Those are delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Also is it odd that Mania isn't sold out yet or no?

    ReplyDelete
  156. I hated it. Absolutely hated it.

    ReplyDelete
  157. No, it says that I know they want Reigns vs. Lesnar as the main event. The World title main evented a bunch of Mania's. There's nothing wrong with two world titles if they treat them equally.

  158. OTTO WANZ! OTTO WANZ did that! OTTO WANS!!!

    Yeah, it was pretty hilarious.


    I think the thing I don't get is that people actually believed they WOULDN'T do what they did last night. It's been known for forever, and yet, here we are with the outrage as though this is a shocking turn of events.

  161. Well, Cleveland did that to its fans this year. Hoyer wasn't all that great, but the team was still in playoff contention and then they had the Johnny disaster because of ownership. Reports said the players didn't respect Manziel at all and rallied around Connor Shaw because he knew the playbook in the final week of the season (and Shaw played hurt and was pissing blood).

    ReplyDelete
  162. It was some other kind of grain. The cauliflower crusts are pretty good, though. I'll make those from time to time. Usually I'll use corn tortillas if I'm in a rush.

    You can tell that the crowd really didn't like the New Day in the Pre Show match. When those guys came out as Rumble entrants the crowd was doubly vicious towards them.

    ReplyDelete
  169. It's not odd, but sales should still be a bit stronger than they currently are. It's going to be a lonely road to Texas next year.

    ReplyDelete
  170. I think watching In Your House: St Valentine's Day Massacre tonight instead of RAW makes a whole lot of sense right now.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Could shareholders force Vince out of power? Is that in play?

    ReplyDelete
  172. I feel worse for Verne than Vince.

    ReplyDelete
  173. I laugh at that .gif because even I could kick down that conference room artificial door.

    ReplyDelete
  174. This reminds me a lot of what I've read about network television execs, who continued time and time again to think that only they knew what was best, and that only campy sitcoms with four cameras and a lesson learned at the end were going to suffice.

    As a result of continuing to do that, there were fewer and fewer good and beloved shows, and ones that did make a go of it had to claw their way there.

    And now, after years of refusing to adapt, the networks find themselves in all out panic mode, as niche cable networks, and on-demand services have been where people turn to.

    ReplyDelete
  175. I made the mistake of assuming competence on WWE's end. I shan't make that mistake again.

    ReplyDelete
  176. and they tried to get rex freaking grossman to be qb but he passed

    I'd like to see Vince make up his own rules for that, just like they do for everything else.

    ReplyDelete
  179. I don't think there will be a "YES! Movement" this year. I think the fans are overall sick and tired and don't want to go through having to put more effort into the booking than the company does. This year will be the "Indifference Movement" as in fans will be sitting there dead silent for most of the shows.

    ReplyDelete
  180. Bitingly clever should be in quotations with a wink face and a /sarcasm denotation.

    ReplyDelete
  181. What I REALLY want to know is what Vince's plan is to sell out Dallas in 14 months. With another year of WCW 2000 booking they are going to be in god awful shape. Even a returning Austin ain't saving that show.

    ReplyDelete
  182. Or just refuse to go to the shows in general.

    ReplyDelete
  183. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©January 26, 2015 at 7:33 AM

    In that case, they better find a different variety of different cheers to pop in.

    It will be real interesting to watch the stock price today. Mainstream outlets picking up on the subscription cancellation movement could cause a knee-jerk sell off.

    ReplyDelete
  185. I think Vince owns too many of a certain kind of stock that they can't do that. Shame.

    ReplyDelete
  186. Exclusive footage of Bryan being eliminated last night if you missed it: http://i.imgur.com/Wp3Bhhj.gif

  187. Cena vs Orton,one more timeJanuary 26, 2015 at 7:34 AM

    The Mcmahon family own the majority of the stock,so no.

    ReplyDelete
  188. Guy's diatribes are longer than War & Peace but he forgets the Peace part. Andy PG would appreciate some brevity from Worst.

    ReplyDelete
  189. After dropping veiled hints for years that he'd consider coming back, Austin's last interview with Keller would suggest he's happier than ever with his reality TV schedule and sees no need to come back even if he is a hardcore fan.

    ReplyDelete
  190. I never stop laughing at this

    ReplyDelete
  191. I hated when Smackdown used to have that one cheer and one cheer only.

    ReplyDelete
  192. They need to come up with an avatar to face Vince's at WrestleMania for control.

    ReplyDelete
  193. In which case....this company is so screwed.

    ReplyDelete
  194. Rock will fight....Austin will fight...Hogan will have some sort of temperpedic stretcher match. and it won't matter because Bryan is winning at mania and going on a year long golden age run before he and Rollins do hell in a cell at Mania in dallas
