  1. Cesaro Kidd, Natalya and Rose will now be referred to as the PPV Kickoff club till Vince loses interest.

    ReplyDelete
  2. In on Brass Rings Club.

    ReplyDelete
  3. The Brass Ring Club is the dumbest thing I have heard all day. By far.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Sucks for Cesaro he's lumped in with all those jobbers.

    ReplyDelete
  5. They're jobbers anyway as long as Vince calls the shots. At least poke fun of it.

    ReplyDelete
  6. If Nattie is now a heel, why not have her turn on Paige to at least get a little heat instead of being a babyface in peril who loses clean to a forearm shot?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Terrible. And insulting to the people that were actually told to reach for the brass ring. Insulting for the sake of insulting. VERY WWE.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Kick Rose, add Bryan and they have something.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Wait... I thought Paige was the heel because she's a creep and occasionally does an erotic cover? Oh and she can't keep any friends and wears all black.

    ReplyDelete
  10. What an amazing waste of Bryan.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Thats a good idea lets rewrite the script :Vince gets a text: What were you saying...ehhh its fine go..out there and do the job!

    ReplyDelete
  12. The FACIEST OF FACEPALMS

    ReplyDelete
  13. My opinion will quickly change on the team if they explode Sonic rings every time they get hit.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Daniel Bryan actually took the brass ring and look what happened to him. What chance did these guys have?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yeah because Bryan is being utilized perfectly right now.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Not everyone can be a main event talent. Adam Rose and Tyson Kidd are career mid carders at best. They are literal B+ players. I do feel bad for Cesaro. He really deserves better.

    ReplyDelete
  17. He main evented mania and is one of the top 3 stars in the company??

    ReplyDelete
  18. That's "Gold" rings.

    Really, they should all dress as plumbers.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Right. Let's toss him into a team with Nattie and Tyson Kidd. That's better.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Maybe if everyone had already been eliminated and Roman came out at 30 he would've gotten a massive baby face pop #smarkbookingfantasies

    ReplyDelete
  21. He's on track to curtain jerk Wrestlemania and fall behind at least Reigns & Cena.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yeah, because fuck elevating anyone.

    ReplyDelete
  23. ehh..cesaro isn't connecting with the fans..maybe it's his accident..he doesn't want it enough...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well, I'm assuming Nattie's a heel because Cesaro/Kidd/Rose are heels. But Nattie accompanied Tyson to the pre-show at the PPV but wrestled as a face (there's no way the Bellas are faces).

    Paige, I guess, is now the wacky, quirky, funny girl on Total Divas: she bonded with Nattie by giving her a marijuana-laced brownie, causing Nattie to pretend to get in a car accident to avoid a convenient WWE-drug test, only for Paige to tell her there was no marijuana in the brownies.

    Then there is this incredible clip of her playing with Big E's pecs:

    ReplyDelete
  25. Please, he's third match at least. Pessimist.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Better put him in a team called The Brass Ring Club with a bunch of lsoers. That will help him out.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Iron Shiek wins the post-Rumble Twitter snarkery:

    https://twitter.com/the_ironsheik/status/559532499970191361

    ReplyDelete
  28. Teaming with Nattie and Tyson Kidd is punishment for shoplifting in some countries.

    ReplyDelete
  29. or you know..they could just put over the guy getting Hulkimania pops like....they did Hulk during Hulkimania...and make money.

    ReplyDelete
  30. You don't always need main event talent to make money. Giving the fans close to what they want makes money.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Speaking of shoplifting, did Emma drop off the face of the planet or something?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Maybe if they booked Flair to win the Rumble instead. #whitethunderbookingfantasies

    ReplyDelete
  33. That or instead of laying around like a shmuck, handcuff him while Show/Kane are dumping the people fans like. Then you get the breaking the cuffs visual and a hotter finish

    ReplyDelete
  34. Reigns/Lesnar
    Sting/HHH
    Orton/Rollins
    Cena/Rusev
    Wyatt/Take
    Divas


    He might beat the Battle Royal, but there's only going to be like eight matches. If the Battle Royal is pre-show, he may literally open.

    ReplyDelete
  35. You don't just force an over guy to hang out with losers. That doesn't elevate the losers. It wastes your over talent.

    ReplyDelete
  36. That's a finish that gets suggested every year, where the ring gets cleared right as #30 comes out, resulting in an automatic win for the last guy.


    It's right up there with, "Now, hear me out guys. What if Zach Gowen were in the Rumble...by his very nature, both feet CAN'T hit the floor!"

    ReplyDelete
  37. Cena vs Orton,one more timeJanuary 27, 2015 at 9:05 AM

    He's a filthy european commie

    ReplyDelete
  38. NO WAY! Throw one of your most over guys in Bryan with them and they will be INSTANT STARS!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Paige also meowed when she gave the news to Nattie during an awkward silence.

    The twenty something marketing asshole running Iron Sheik's Twitter wins the post-Rumble Twitter snarkery

    FTFY

    ReplyDelete
  41. He was too busy (reportedly) calling an audible on eliminating Bryan early in the Rumble. And, eh, it's the Divas; they're interchangeable, just like Devon and R-Truth.

    ReplyDelete
  42. You're reaching here.

    ReplyDelete
  43. How do you think people get elevated? Whether it's a match, a tag team or a stabe, you use over people to get other people over. Are you new?

    ReplyDelete
  44. You are right Vince's actual response would have been..which one is she...? the Black haired one that talks funny or the one in the jean shorts skipping around?

    ReplyDelete
  45. It DOES kind of play as an Iron Sheik parody account. But I still love it.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Why not just have them be foreigners (is Rose the one from South Africa?)? Heck, put 'em with Rusev.

    ReplyDelete
  47. You don't stick arguably your most over guy with Tyson Kidd to get him over. That is really dumb. They are a curtain jerking group.


    Who went from Jobber to being elevated by hanging out with someone super voer? Who has that ever worked with?

    ReplyDelete
  48. ROCK YOU LIKE A HURRICANEJanuary 27, 2015 at 9:07 AM

    It's pretty funny that this is such a bad idea, Danimal, of all people, is the voice of reason.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Did you hear that they are going to put retired jobbers with Seth Rollins?!?!? THAT'S GOING TO RUIN HIM!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I do like the notion of an international conglomerate. They can be The Coalition of the Thrilling!

    ReplyDelete
  51. The "everyone is eliminated when No. 30 shows up" spot was mostly suggested a lot for Jericho in 2012, as I recall.
    I'd only do it if I had a monster draw of a WWE title match that was going on last so I wasn't ending the PPV that way, but it would have been a great way for Jericho's character at that time to win it.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Easy on the VinceJordan-ims, buddy

    ReplyDelete
  53. Might as well name that team the Redshirts. Why? Reasons.

    ReplyDelete
  54. It's a terrible idea. Really bad.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Sexy Flexy Biff KensingtonJanuary 27, 2015 at 9:08 AM

    Damn, I might be one of the six people that actually things the 'Brass Ring Club' is funny as Hell. That Bullet Club knockoff shirt is the most awesome thing in the history of awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Yeah because a stable of 3 amazing workers being fucked over by the system is SUCH A BAD IDEA.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Sexy Flexy Biff KensingtonJanuary 27, 2015 at 9:09 AM

    The Masters of the Universe FTW

    ReplyDelete
  58. If they were ever going to do that spot, that was the year to do it. Since Jericho was two or three weeks into his "giving the crowd the silent treatment" angle. That would have been a glorious way to keep it going.


    But nope. Sheamus.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Redshirts is so good, I'm actually shocked they haven't done that with their jobbers yet.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I want that shirt. I noticed it Sunday night and saw the "S" on the top line so I knew it wasn't a Bullet Club shirt (or the "Balor Club" knockoff), but I loved it nonetheless.

    ReplyDelete
  61. An overblown storm to assist an entirely overblown wrestler, lol, fitting.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Wrestling fans: Having zero imagination since forever.

    ReplyDelete
  63. They could be called Union 2: Reunion

    ReplyDelete
  64. Well, Vince doesn't have predictable Rumble winners. That year.

    ReplyDelete
  65. It'd be funnier if I didn't think these were close to Vince's actual reactions.

    http://gfycat.com/MistyHappygoluckyEagle

    ReplyDelete
  66. clearly you missed the day we came up with Wyatt Ambrose matches

    ReplyDelete
  67. They're currently heels, so what storyline would get them to be aligned with Bryan? Did Bryan and Cesaro wrestle in ROH, so they have some sort of connection?


    It would kind of work because the faction could have a world title guy, tag titles, and a lower card title.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I mean, it ultimately didn't really matter because they were both in title matches and neither title match was one of the top two draws on the card. But if they really changed to Sheamus winning because the interwebs was hip to Jericho's reported win...c'mon, son.

    ReplyDelete
  69. me too, have lana be mastermind/manager of them all and it could be something that might work.


    Heck, throw sheamus in too

    ReplyDelete
  70. Really, they should've called the Spirit Squad the Redshirts. Would've been a perfect name for them.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Sadly that may still have gotten a better reaction than Roman.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Turn them baby after they help out Bryan against the Authority.

    ReplyDelete
  73. ROCK YOU LIKE A HURRICANEJanuary 27, 2015 at 9:12 AM

    "We have a talented tag team that can't talk!"

    "Who should we give them as a leader to get everybody over and cover up there mic weaknesses!?"

    "Daniel Bryan!"

    "Perfect!"

    ReplyDelete
  74. BTW, I'm pretty sure Cesaro & Kidd named themselves Brass Rings Club.


    I think there was a thing from One Hour Tees where they made the shirts for them.

    ReplyDelete
  75. OneHourTees @OneHourTees · Jan 25
    Someone tweet me a pic of cesaro is the brass ring club shirts we made.....

    ReplyDelete
  76. It's not the worst idea in the world, it's just a serious reach.
    Let this one go, bud.

    ReplyDelete
  77. HHH got over through the use of backstage politics and having really important friends.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Wait, are you saying Bryan can't talk? My sarcasm meter is broken this morning.

    ReplyDelete
  79. 1. The group being assembled to protest there spot on the card angle never works (New Blood, J.o.b. squad, L.W.O, etc)
    2. That name is god awful. And nothing more than a rib on those guys

    ReplyDelete
  80. Sexy Flexy Biff KensingtonJanuary 27, 2015 at 9:14 AM

    I'd be down for this, if they actually were going to seriously get behind them. Having Rose shed the failed party boy gimmick for a cocky douche role would be a good move. Cesaro and Kidd are going to fucking rock in the tag ranks by sheer force of willpower, and Natalya in business professional attire is hot as Hell. #BiffApproves

    ReplyDelete
  81. Well, Colt's meltdown because we won't fawn over his terrible idea is all the entertainment I need for the day. Great stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  82. ROCK YOU LIKE A HURRICANEJanuary 27, 2015 at 9:15 AM

    Putting three great workers together because they're great workers is probably the least imaginative thing one could book.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Unless they came up with it themselves because no one really gives a shit what they're doing. Which seems fairly likely to me.
    I agree it's unlikely to elevate them but if it's something tongue-in-cheek they're just doing on their own...I mean, it's not like they have a lofty spot to lose.

    Not well enough to get three other people over with him. He's an intimate, sincere promo. That doesn't extend to putting others over.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Jericho confirmed it was always Sheamus winning. In all honesty, he was the only one really talking about the Rumble, not to mention being booked strong as hell leading up to it.

    It was just on Smackdown though.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Sexy Flexy Biff KensingtonJanuary 27, 2015 at 9:17 AM

    The original NXT invasion got over well enough before the writing monkeys killed it. I don't have high hopes that Creative will use these three properly, because they don't really use anyone properly anymore. But in a perfect world, this deal could work really well. Three forgotten guys who are gonna shove it up Vince McMahon's ass and be fucking fly? You can get mileage out of that. The name is a nice 'fuck you' to Vince as well, so it's win-win.

    ReplyDelete
  89. You know if TNA had any aptitude at all and hadn't killed any and all chances of breaking out...a pissed of Cesaro not re signing and jumping to TNA would have huge possibility.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Who could possibly get a Brass Ring storyline more over than Bryan?

    ReplyDelete
  91. Yeah...Adam Rose shouldn't be in that faction.

    ReplyDelete
  92. True. In remember the reports that it was always Sheamus, and the booking in retrospect makes it seem obvious in a way I never noticed.


    But still, I really can't believe Sheamus is a former Royal Rumble winner. That's the closest I think they've ever come to having a legit midcarder win it. Such a confounding win.

    ReplyDelete
  93. It's better than nothing. They're trying to give themselves a team identity (two guys who aren't getting their fair shake), they've been working on tag team moves. It might get them to the tag titles. The Rosebuds still hanging around and dancing to Cesaro's siren is so weird and stupid, there might be a breaking point where it just starts making me laugh.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Add Daniel Bryan AND Dean Ambrose. The fans like those guys, so it will get Tyson Kidd over.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Adam "Colorado" CurryJanuary 27, 2015 at 9:18 AM

  101. Sexy Flexy Biff KensingtonJanuary 27, 2015 at 9:19 AM

    I don't mind it, if it gives him a character change. At this point, the dude isn't as fucking overexposed as most everyone else on the mid-low card train, so giving him a makeover and a more serious slant may be fresh and interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Or that country!

    USA! USA!

  103. Bryan Ambrose Cesaro would be something

  108. You didn't really make fun of me. We were just discussing your terrible idea. When your one example of ideas like yours working is HHH. You don't get how it works.


    Also, the fact that you had to do 4 followup posts whining about how people didn't like your idea is pretty meltdowny.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Who had to fight for it and then had it snatched away. Do you really need this spelled out?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  111. Heh...nicely done, ya limey bastard.

    ReplyDelete
  112. They tweeted each other about it. So Bryan will work Sheamus and Ziggler will work the Battle Royal

    ReplyDelete
  113. BREAKING: DX wasn't over.

    ReplyDelete
  114. If you want to do a "couple of down on their luck guys band together with Bryan to battle the Authority" storyline, at least do it with a couple of guys the crowd already gives a shit about and has a chance. Some combination of Ziggler, Ryback, Ambrose, etc. Those guys are over already and also wildly underused, the crowd would already be invested in those guys battling the Authority and they're good workers too (even Ryback has really improved).
    As much as I like Kidd and Cesaro and would love to see them elevated- at the very least, their program with the Usos needs to start two weeks ago- I think they're too far apart on the spectrum for the reaction to be anything other than "huh?" Push them for a bit, have them be fucked over by the Authority and then maybe there's something there. Otherwise you're talking about angry heel Daniel Bryan leading some stupid, warmed-over revolt or a total rehash of Mick Foley leading the Union, and ain't nobody got time for any of that.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I hope they're prepared for some titanic Daniel Bryan chants during the Mania main event.

  120. That finish was around for years people were cumming themselves that a story actually fit it.

  121. Heyman did a great job as usual last night. It's not going to be enough to save what happens, but whatever.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I think they do care. Roman winning the Rumble and causing crazy criticism online and through the twittersphere definitely rankles Vince, believe that (hehe, see what I did there?).

    ReplyDelete
  123. The problem is it would work better as a loose faction that does their own things and come together when needed...Vince is incapable of that at this point as you have seen from the handling of the wyatts and Shield

    ReplyDelete
  133. Wow that Brass Ring Club shirt is badass. Got all 3 of them represented on there (not Nattie though)

    ReplyDelete
  134. Yeah, I thought that was odd as hell in their Rumble entrance, largely because I thought I'd read it was going to be a six-man elimination match. The Rosebuds dancing around to industrial metal and blaring sirens was....something. I agree though, I can see that becoming a total non sequitir that I get a kick out of because it makes no goddamn sense.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Yeah because HHH was never elevated by being in a stable. Said the internet person who started watching wrestling in 2008.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Sexy Flexy Biff KensingtonJanuary 27, 2015 at 9:26 AM

    I don't know that I concur with that necessarily. But I think Tyson Kidd has way more potential than the WWE has let him show. But a Kidd/Bryan pairing right now would be a major mismatch.

    ReplyDelete
  137. you get guys over by having the win a bunch of matches then lose a bunch of matches then pull them off tv then bring them back with a new Tshirt...duh

    ReplyDelete
  138. I posted my thoughts in the RAW thread, but I'm actually convinced they're going to flip him at Mania because of all of this. He's still going to be the guy, he's just going to shoulder the load as a heel.


    And then they can cash in on Bryan by running a Bryan/Reigns feud, not giving Bryan the belt and building Roman's profile to the point where he can legitimately turn babyface down the line.

    ReplyDelete
  139. I hope they're prepared for something else going on last.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Oh so the story was finished? Dude gets punked by the Authority, injured and stripped of the title and just moves on? Cool.

  144. What do you do with Rollins and the briefcase, though? Bryan wins the belt eventually and gets cashed in on?

    ReplyDelete
  145. This would be a glorious thing if Seth Rollins is still a chickenshit heel next year.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Sexy Flexy Biff KensingtonJanuary 27, 2015 at 9:28 AM

    If you're going to pair Tyson Kidd with Daniel Bryan, both guys need adjustments to their alignment. You have to have Tyson Kidd start getting more and more aggressive, and Bryan has to stop being so likable. If Kidd falls into the Bryan style of characterization, it's going to be Cena/Ryder 2.0 with Natalya instead of Eve.

    Two great workers who are pissed off at being marginalized? That could work. Bryan/Cesaro/Kidd would kick ass workrate wise, but I don't think you just throw them all together and make magic happen creatively.

    ReplyDelete
  147. Not to be outdone, Seth Rollins, Goldust and Darren Young have formed their own group called The Cock Ring Club.

    ReplyDelete
  148. MikeyMike, JuggernautJanuary 27, 2015 at 9:28 AM

    I enjoy the Brass Ring Club. I laughed when they had their entrance on Sunday.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Throwing out insulting assumptions about people really doesn't help your argument. It makes you look combative.


    HHH got over because he had very powerful political ties in the back and those political ties are what got him to the very top. Hanging out with Shawn was great, I'm not denying that, but his sustained success and his overness was because of his backstage political ties that were dedicated to getting him over. Get those kinds of connections for Tyson Kidd and that will do more than being in a stable with Bryan could ever do.

    ReplyDelete
  150. HHH wasn't a jobber. He was the King Of The Ring.

    ReplyDelete
  151. The anti-"smark" response to what happened at the Royal Rumble is the equivalent of whatever Fox News is taking out of context that day.

    ReplyDelete
  152. This is absolutely the best way to make Roman a babyface. Reset his character with a heel turn and put him in singles matches that will likely be great.
    To those that say "Derr, you're turning him heel just so he'll get cheered?" as I've seen recently....yes, motherfuckers. The idea is to eventually make him the badass babyface they want him to be, and a heel turn right now is the most obvious way to do it.

    ReplyDelete
  153. I think you flip Rollins.


    So if you run 2-3 Bryan/Reigns matches and Bryan can't overcome, along the way, you have Rollins getting more and more furious that he was suppose to be the chosen one and The Authority sidestepped him and anointed Reigns and then after the last Bryan battle, Rollins cashes turning face, causes a shitstorm, and you solve it that way.

    Then Reigns probably wins it back a PPV or two later.

  154. Rollins gets screwed over on his cash-in on the way to his babyface turn, as long as we're fantasy booking.

  156. Right, the fans cheered for him because of who he was friends with backstage, not what he was doing on screen.

  157. Don't you think Zack Ryder sees Brass Ring Club and just goes...oh come the fuck on...lil help here guys?

    ReplyDelete
  158. He was midcard for life, as is Kidd right now.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Please. There is really no comparison between the two.

  160. I guess a White South African would make them a Commission...perhaps one dedicated to spreading TRUTH.

  161. Nice. I like it!

    I think Roman will make a killer heel.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Kidd is opener to lower midcard. With midcard as his ceiling.

    There's plenty of comparison between the two. They both suck huge quantities of festering, sweaty ass.

    Remember back in 1997 when Steve Austin helped the Headbangers get over?

    ReplyDelete
  165. Kidd is not mid-card. He's opening match, or developmental territory. Are we all talking about the same guy?

    ReplyDelete
  166. I've made Sheamus a top heel in TEW but I periodically forget he exists when putting shows together. The discussion below has inspired me to pair him with Rusev.

    First Raw I haven't watched in a long time, probably since College and I graduated in 2010. I guess it really wasn't a Raw so I'm not going to count it.

  173. Hey now, let's leave Jim Neidhart out of this!

    ReplyDelete
  174. Right, like fans cheering means anything. Did you just start watching?

    ReplyDelete
  175. Kidd needs to go on a Goldberg-type run to reach the midcard.

    ReplyDelete
  176. I don't watch either because I loathe cable news, but they are operating from two different playbooks.

    Anyway, this gets away from my point, which is that people have every right to be pissed at WWE. Making up shit about the why is grinding my gears.

  177. A few weeks before he and Shawn teamed, HHH had a cage match with mankind at Summerslam. He was King Of The Ring two months earlier. He was IC champ a few months before when that meant something.

    This seems a polarizing subject, so here's my final take for the time being: if the Brass Ring Club becomes a vehicle to make chicken salad out of chicken shit, then I'm all for it. Cesaro and Kidd in particular are too talented not to make it as a tag team, and I'll reserve judgment on Adam Rose to see if they give him a character makeover. But if this deal becomes the new 3MB, which is what I secretly fear, then I'm going to punch someone in the taint.

    ReplyDelete
  180. Yes, because everyone remembers how the JOB Squad rivaled the original Legion of Doom...

    It will most certainly be 3MB. How does it not with Adam Rose in the group?

  182. Didn't get a chance to watch the Rumble yet. When Bubba did the "get the tables" spot did he actually do the schtick and say R-Truth, get the tables?

  183. Or this planet!

  184. None of them get over unless you add Bryan. That's how you get guys over. Force them into stables with really over guys. Did you just start watching?

    ReplyDelete
  185. Everyone accepts Kidd is talented and underused, but with where he is in his career and on the card right now, sticking him with Bryan would bring Bryan down not raise Kidd up. Just like Cesaro looks like a loser right now.

    ReplyDelete
  186. Ooh, here's another question added to this:

    How do you keep occupied Cena during Roman's reign?

  188. What about Rey in '06? He hadn't really touched the main event at that point. Sheamus was at least a multi-time WWE champion already, as much as he shouldn't have been.

  189. Oh man, that's slightly interchangeably racist. Typical Vince.
