BoD Daily Update

How Does WWE Talent Feel About the Current Booking?

One of the top talents in the company has said that there is no enthusiasm from talent when it comes to booking. While talent is told the "we are having fun, goddammit" type of speech from Vince, they are comparing it to forcing POW's to sing and dance and pretend that everyone is happy.

Undertaker in Rough Shape?

According to someone who recently saw the Undertaker, they were shocked as he looked like he was 60 years old and moved around like his knees were totally shot.

  1. If he can't wrestle, don't have him wrestle Bray.

    I wonder who said that about Charlotte.

  4. According to random, unnamed sources, some stuff might be happening backstage. On the other hand, other stuff might also be happening instead.

    ReplyDelete
  5. So current roster...over exaggerating a little.


    Undertaker...so exactly how he looked last year


    Everyone but Vince likes Charlotte

    ReplyDelete
  6. Well..on the bright side Bray likes his rest holds

    ReplyDelete
  7. Charlotte doesn't even have any twin magic skills. How can she be expected to compete

    ReplyDelete
  8. That pisses me off about Charlotte. This is the same company that employs Rosa Mendes, Cameron, and Alicia Fox.

    ReplyDelete
  9. If Taker can't go, would anyone have a problem with the HHH/Sting confrontation at Fast Lane ending with a Bray sneak attack and beatdown, setting up a Bray/Sting Mania match?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Taker stands outside on one side of the ring and Bray on the other and they just conger lightening bolts and holograms to fight each other.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I really want to know who said that about Charlotte. Whoever it was should be pedigreed pronto. That's just ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
  12. OPEN QUESTION: When was the moment Vince officially lost it?

    (I'm going with the Bret buildup for WM26. The match no one needed but those two, and it took over a ton of TV time on Raw. Though I'm willing to hear arguments he lost it much sooner.)

    ReplyDelete
  13. yes and they are all "fit the mold of what it takes to be a main roster diva" than Charlotte. Forget all this work rate and effort shit and spend more time in the tanning bed, or getting implants or plastic surgery

    ReplyDelete
  14. Our NXT Instant Reaction podcast is up if anyone needs some podcast listening material this morning.

    Will is joined by Johnny & Pete (Titans of Wrestling), Phil
    Schneider (Segunda Caida) and Kris Zellner to discuss the latest NXT
    special on the WWE Network. We discuss all of the matches, the futures
    of Itami, Balor and Owens in WWE. We discuss the differences between NXT
    and WWE in quality and presentation. We heap tons of praise on the main
    event and even argue a little bit.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm not necessarily against that, but how does HHH get a payday?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Remember that scene in Big Trouble in Little China, when Egg uses "peasant magic" to fight Lo Pan? It would be like that, except with less of an Asian motif.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I can't agree to that because the build to Mania 26 was really sensational. Maybe 2012 or so because that's when reliance on part timers began and 3 hour Raw started.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Of course Charlotte doesn't belong on WWE's current main wrestling shows...

    She can actually wrestle.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Theberzerker Von HUSSingtonFebruary 12, 2015 at 7:16 AM

    I'm sure the only person not high on Charlotte is that fuckhead Dunn

    ReplyDelete
  20. The free money giveaway on RAW and when he couldn't work a phone.

    ReplyDelete
  21. That's not too bad a call. That Bret/Vince match was the worst booked match I've ever seen. It made Starcade 97 look good.

    ReplyDelete
  22. If he can't wrestle, don't have him wrestle.

    If Taker can't go WWE shouldn't force it. Last year was a fitting way to end.

    ReplyDelete
  23. As a general rule making anything more Big Trouble in Little China is a good thing.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm all for whatever gets Bray a good payday and a spotlight.

    ReplyDelete
  25. That sounds like something "Iron" Mike Tenay would say.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Theberzerker Von HUSSingtonFebruary 12, 2015 at 7:19 AM

    I'm sure the one not high on Charlotte now is that fuckhead Dunn, purely because she's a legit athlete and not an insta-character like Paige or the Bellas, and the fact that her ability makes you think of fighters like Rousey, which makes that little prick insecure about the dopey bullshit TV that he produces which makes him insecure about his needle dick, which reminds him of how the kids would make fun of his Bucky Beaver ass teeth........
    I really don't like Kevin Dunn.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'd be happier with Reigns/HHH and Brock/Bryan. Get Reigns out of that main event but still give him something "big" to do.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I can see why Undertaker would want to show up at Mania. A fat payday for 20 minutes of work.

    But WHY would Vince, who supposedly reveres Taker as his favourite, want to put his guy through that kind of torture? It's not like Calloway will add that many buys to the PPV or network subscriptions.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I linked it to the main post as well

    ReplyDelete
  30. Just like his father. I wonder if Rotundo punished him by putting him in the abdominal stretch while holding the bed post. :D

    ReplyDelete
  31. No way...the worst booked match is Cole vs. Lawler at Mania. That abomination went on forever!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Taker shouldn't work. Maybe he can "host" Mania. All people want to see is the entrance one last time.

    ReplyDelete
  33. And moreover it isn't like Taker needs the payday desperately. I'm sure Taker still has the love and desire to do it but the last thing I want to see is another one of my favorites struggling down the ramp and wrestling after their body has quit on them.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Bayless, what's for lunch? Snow sandwich with a snow salad? Oh, and snow on the side please. Can you even find your car nowadays?

    ReplyDelete
  35. OH I wasn't saying what I wanted just the next logical step in their mind. also wouldn't HHH the COO of the company get a bigger payday for you know.....making the company better the other 11 months of the year than he does for wrestling at mania?

    ReplyDelete
  36. More like Vince doesn't feel Charlotte fits the mold of what it takes to be a diva. On second thought, they're right. She has great matches AND is attractive.

    ReplyDelete
  37. So to get ready for Wm I'm watching one match from each of the previous 30. I don't care about doubling up, just want to be entertained and reminisce. Here's my list, I've only watched 1 and 2 thus far so I'm open to suggestions.

    1- bundy v SD Jones
    2- nfl battle Royale
    3 hogan/andre
    4 demolition/strike force
    5 hogan/savage
    6 hogan/warrior
    7 savage/warrior
    8 bret/piper
    9 ramon/backlund. (Debated hogan/yoko but that's cheating. At least this gets me out of Wm 9 in 4 minutes
    10 bret/Owen or the ladder. Depends on my mood that day
    11 gunns v owen/yoke
    12 hhh/warrior
    13 bret/Austin
    14 kane/taker
    15 rocky/Austin
    16 triangle ladder match
    17 rock/Austin
    18 rock/hogan
    19 Brock/angle
    20 hhh/hbk/Benoit
    21 hbk/angle
    22 mickie/Trish
    23
    24hbk/flair
    25 hbk/taker
    27 hbk/taker
    27
    28 rock/Cena
    29 punk/taker
    30 bryan/hhh

    Need help on 23 and 27. Leaning hbk/Cena for 23.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Well that did suck all the balls. But at least they didn't try and turn Cole face. Or whatever I heard the motivation behind the Bret/Vince match was.

    ReplyDelete
  39. And it begins.


    Charlotte isn't a 'diva'


    What an asshole Vince is.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yeah I don't think he wants literal pay either, but I do think he likes having big epic Wrestlemania matches.

    ReplyDelete
  41. XXIII: Taker vs. Batista. XXVII: Um.....

    ReplyDelete
  42. HBK-Cena or Batista-Undertaker is good for 23.
    27 is tough because that show was evil. How about Cody Rhodes and Rey?

    ReplyDelete
  43. 23 definitely Shawn/Cena.

    27 Rey/Cody or Punk/Orton. Both quality matches.

    ReplyDelete
  44. He's right. She can actually wrestle

    ReplyDelete
  45. You really breezed through Mania 1 huh? You need to sit there and watch all 45 minutes of Beefcake vs Sanmartino!

    ReplyDelete
  46. One guess who it is that feels Charlotte doesn't have what it takes to be a diva.

    Hint: It rhymes with "Fuck You, Kevin Dunn."

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would say this past Rumble

    ReplyDelete
  48. It would actually be more comical if they still used an Asian motif.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Theberzerker Von HUSSingtonFebruary 12, 2015 at 7:23 AM

    23: Taker/Batista. Yeah HBK/Cena is technically better and more important, but few power matches ever work as good as UT/Dave did, and it's really fun.
    27: You can go with HHH/Taker II, but personally I've really come around on the Punk/Orton match. I really think it's a lost classic.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  51. Duck you, Seven won.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I've never understood that has Rotundo's go to rest hold or why wrestlers have GO TO REST HOLDS... I mean 95% of them anybody can do why do guys fall back on the exact same one every time. In rotundo's case...the Abdominal stretch doesn't even seem like much of a rest for either guy and Mike needed to conserve as much hydration as possible.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Punk-Orton is good

    ReplyDelete
  54. Leaning towards the bullshit match with the corre vs kane and 3 dopes cause its over in 2 minutes

    ReplyDelete
  55. I agree on Orton/Punk. Best match on the show and in my mind criminally under appreciated.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Guess who else did a heel turn on Paul Roma besides Scott? Check out Rock Star Gary's rant on SuperBrawl V! And it's on Scott's blog! Enjoy! rspwfaq.boards.net/thread/227/rock-star-gary-reflects-superbrawl


    Where's Danimal?

    ReplyDelete
  57. Main Roster Diva = has fake tits or would translate well on Total Divas. A combo of both would be ideal.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Who will be the Rambo to free them all??? WHO?!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Why are flowers so damn expensive?

    I just spent 200 bucks on Valentine's Day for flowers and stuff to be delivered to my fiance.

    ReplyDelete
  60. which if he can still go he should be used in some way. He was used fine to put Bryan over last year..and he could be used to put Roman over this year.

    ReplyDelete
  61. To be fair, if you were a florist, you would totally hike up your prices on V-Day.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Wow you got ripped off man. 1800 flowers?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Wait until you have to buy flowers for your wedding.

    ReplyDelete
  64. A main event anywhere in the country

    ReplyDelete
  65. I may put wedding flowers on my wedding registry. See if anyone catches on.

    ReplyDelete
  66. E! producer "This Charlotte chick...only wants to talk about wrestling....not even sports entertainment...WRESTLING! what am I suppose to do with that?"

    ReplyDelete
  67. What I want to know is what their reaction is about last night's NXT show

    ReplyDelete
  68. Waited too long. If you are doing the V-Day gimmick, book em in January.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Flower delivery is for the birds, man. Just get down the supermarket and get a bunch for a fiver.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Reminds me of that viral video a few years back of the Filipino prison doing "Thriller"

    ReplyDelete
  71. Nope. I am getting them delivered tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Maybe I'll try taker/batista. I see a lot of hbk on the list already.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I keep forgetting to look up that Everlong song. The only Foo Fighters song that I thought I knew turns out to be by another band.

    ReplyDelete
  74. HA! Not for this one. She likes nice shit.

    ReplyDelete
  75. You aren't watching Savage Steamboat?

    ReplyDelete
  76. Probably too much wrestling, not enough sports entertainment.

    ReplyDelete
  77. We're having fun Maggle!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Why do I get the feeling "one top talent in the company" = Orton

    ReplyDelete
  79. Flowers from Shop Rite and candy from Target is my go to as a last resort. Luckily this year I just got her some kickboxing shit so she can kick the shit out of me and not feel bad.

    ReplyDelete
  80. You are screwed.

    ReplyDelete
  81. You're gonna have to live up to this every year, man. Why set the bar so high!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Dude buy her a ticket to 50 shades of grey.. sender with all her friends...she will come home looking to bang..you are out 15$ and don't even have to watch the movie.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Orton's never struck me as the type to use anonymity. I've seen him make some brash remarks with his name fully behind them.

    Maybe it was Dolph. He neeeever voices his opinion...

    ReplyDelete
  84. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 12, 2015 at 7:30 AM

    In what universe is Charlotte not main roster diva material, Kevin Dunn? Because you fucking know that buck-toothed motherfucker is against her.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I've watched that more.recently than hulk/andre. Very tough call though.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I don't even do flowers for her anymore. I just get them for my mom and her mom. After almost 10 years she just said don't bother they just die anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  87. True and I guess if Orton was feeling like a POW he would have just escaped and gone AWOL.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Goddammit pal that's how you do it.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Between NXT and New Japan, yesterday was fantastic day for wrestling. Five **** or higher matches by my count. And just great booking all round.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Well she goes uh insanely wild in uh places...........

    ReplyDelete
  91. I'm sitting at home tonight eating ribs and watching network....she is going to come home from being out with her friends having spent two hours watching chick porn looking to score.

    ReplyDelete
  92. That's very pragmatic of her. My wife does still like flowers. If there was anywhere that sold flowers on my way home from work I'd buy them her all the time. But there isn't. So I rarely do. This is actually our first VDay as married people, which thinking about it, means I probably should be doing a bit more special than just flowers and a card. Eh, what are you gonna do?

    ReplyDelete
  93. So......morale is incredibly low, and someone compares it to dancing as a POW?

    Is anyone really surprised here?

    Add to that what NXT has done, and I don't know how you don't have a riot.

    ReplyDelete
  94. another foot Saturday!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Proceed with the flower buying.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Have they announced the next NXT special's date yet? I'm guessing around April-May.

    ReplyDelete
  97. It wouldn't surprise me if the Undertaker is helped into the ring by "druids".

    ReplyDelete
  98. How many inches has it been already?

    ReplyDelete
  99. My wife likes flowers but we don't even do cards on V-day and she certainly doesn't want me to spend our money on over priced flowers at this time of year. Would rather have them once in a while on the cheap.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonFebruary 12, 2015 at 7:35 AM

    It won't surprise me if wrestlers from the main roster try to get moved to NXT.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Well for what they expect of main roster divas it doesn't surprise me she doesn't fit their mold. Main Roster divas are there to hype Total Divas not put on wrestling clinics. Which is a shame but that's what it is.

    ReplyDelete
  102. There's a reddit post making the rounds today about the Simpsons, and how everything that's happened in the 22 years since "So It's Come to This: A Simpsons Clip Show" has all been an invention of Homer's imagination since he never really woke up from the coma at the end of that episode. Now I'm wondering if the Who Killed Vince McMahon storyline is still actually going on and the events of the last 8 years have just been Vince's life flashing before his eyes...

    "200 bucks on Valentine's Day for flowers"

  104. Cena vs Orton,one more timeFebruary 12, 2015 at 7:36 AM

    One if the most depressing daily updates I've seen in a while.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Well are you taking her out for dinner or a movie or something? Or making dinner? You don't really have to woo her since you already won.

    ReplyDelete
  106. THEY'RE HAVING FUN, MAGGLE!


    Suddenly, this line is a lot less funny to me.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Who doesn't like Charlotte? Probably any female wrestler not sucking off John Cena.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 12, 2015 at 7:37 AM

    I love that everyone's knee jerk reaction (mine included) to "Unnamed management source down on NXT wrestler/diva" automatically triggers Dunn/McMahon hate. I'd be sad to learn it was someone like Michael Hayes who wasn't sold on her or something.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I'm certain the Sam Adams brewery turned off the freezer and just shoveled in the snow to keep the beer cold.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Well. We're going out for a double date meal tomorrow night, and we'll have a nice meal in on Saturday night. And I am getting flowers tonight. It'll all work out fine. It'll be nice to buy a card with Wife on it.

    This is me with Taker back in October. Didn't look so bad then. I feel like most of these stories about him are just trolling.

  113. "There are some in management that are really high on Charlotte while
    others do not feel that she fits the mold of what it takes to be a diva

    Translation: Kevin Dunn doesn't think she looks slutty enough

    ReplyDelete
  114. OH CRAP! You're right. Maybe I will dig up graves too and find some jewelry to give her.

  115. Nice Pancrase shirt on Taker!

    The fact that she puts together coherent wrestling matches doesn't help her cause either.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I mean you waited to long to book them. If you order in January and schedule for this week, it is usually a bit cheaper. They hike the prices the last couple weeks.

    Or just tell her you well get flowers a couple weeks later... that works just as well.

    Someone in WWE is a biiiiiiig fan of fake boobs.

    It has worked before.

  128. I think you will see a few guys flat out quit soon like Gabriel did. And there might be something to Randy Orton's return keep getting pushed backed as well. He has been known to voice his opinions from time to time.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonFebruary 12, 2015 at 7:40 AM

    They should do a skit where Bray Wyatt injures the Undertaker and puts him out of wrestling. He gets the rub of ending Takers career while Taker doesn't have to wrestle.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Vince is still 12...........

    ReplyDelete
  131. Lee probably looks worse than the Undertaker.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Petrol station flowers FTW. And a bag of barbecue firelighters if you want to make her your wife.

  135. Well that's true.Dinner is always nice. A few years back we had a family emergency and bad snowstorm so we couldn't do valentines day until the Sunday after and the only card left was "Wife" so I bought it and crossed it out and said "not yet". Luckily she has an awesome sense of humor.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Well, I guess I can see how some in WWE might not think Charlotte has what it takes to be a WWE Diva. After all, she doesn't have gigantic fake boobs and she can actually wrestle.

    Something tells me that WWE has a secret laboratory where they're trying to clone a bunch of additional Bellas, since they, you know, are the most awesomest divas ever.

    Sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  137. It was getting hard to find decent cards addressed to Girlfriend and almost impossible the one year she was Feyonce.

  138. Taker does his 25-minute goddamned entrance, removes the hat, takes 15 Sister Abigails and goes away forever. I hope he can do it.

  147. I think Vince still can't go over the fact that they're both good looking AND twins. Like that is some kind of magic formula for Diva greatness.

  148. The Divas that get the biggest reactions from the fans are generally the ones that don't fit the mold of what a majority of the Divas look like.

  149. I can imagine a lot of the people on the main roster are pretty miffed about what's going on in NXT. If I was Zack Ryder I'd be pretty pissed off. He would've thrived there but became a midcard joke through no fault of his own. You can bet a lot of guys see NXT and are like "Why can't we do what they're doing?"

  150. I have phenomenally impressed with BOTH these theories.

    ReplyDelete
  151. I'm sure anyone in NXT would throw the NXT title in the garbage on RAW immediately if it meant getting the difference in pay.

  152. "We are having fun, goddammit"

    Vince is basically Clark Griswold at the end of Vacation when his family wants to go home and he tries to tell them how much fun they're having.

    "I think you're all fucked in the head. We're ten weeks from the fucking WrestleMania and you want to bail out. Well I'll tell you something. This is no longer a promotion. It's a quest. It's a quest for fun. You're gonna have fun, and I'm gonna have fun... We're all gonna have so much fucking fun we're gonna need plastic surgery to remove our goddamn smiles! You'll be whistling 'RO-MAN REIGNS' out of your assholes! I must be crazy! I'm on a pilgrimage to see a Samoan. Praise Roman Reigns! Holy Shit!"

  153. For the most part I go for the comedy/dirty cards for Valentine's day. It fits the motif I go for....at 26

  155. You'd think they would figure out that having everyone look alike is not the way to go.

    When Ryder was at his most popular how was NXT doing? Was it in as good shape as it is now?

    ReplyDelete
  157. That Bray Wyatt is going to job to that crippled old fuck pisses me right the fuck off.

    As for the Charlotte thing, it doesn't bother me at all because I don't give a rat's ass about diva's wrestling so whatever.

    ReplyDelete
  158. That's a fantastic analogy.

    I meant BESIDES the pay increase.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Oh, pay being equal, I'd never answer the phone if I were in NXT.

    ReplyDelete
  161. When he was thriving NXT wasn't what NXT is now. It was FCW and NXT was in it's original format.

    He means she looks manly, but not in a "freakishly large like Chyna" kind of way.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Thank you, sir!

    ReplyDelete
  164. No but a lot of guys like him were fed through the WWE meat grinder for no reason. Great young talented guys that are either gone or seen as a joke. Ryder is just the most egregious example.

  165. I aim to please

  166. If you can get Xavier off of the subject of the Hulkster, he really is a tremendous BoD competitor.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Charlotte does not fit the mold for a WWE Diva. She fits the mold for a WWE Womens Wrestler.

    That is true. He got himself over and then was destroyed.

    ReplyDelete
  169. I wouldn't say that she really looks bad either. Remember what Nattie looked like when she showed up?

    ReplyDelete
  170. You should tune into NXT for a few of them. Charlotte/Natalya, Charlotte/Banks, and this recent 4 way were all very good.

    ReplyDelete
  171. So it's officially gone from joke to accurate observation. Being of service to Vince's erection is the only qualification in both divisions (Bella, N., Reigns, R.)

    ReplyDelete
  172. Some of his most entertaining stuff is about the Hulkster.

    ReplyDelete
  173. I usually don't like it either, but outside of a few years, I've generally only been presented with shit wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Hell Big Cass and Enzo are pretty much doing the same gimmick now.

    ReplyDelete
  175. Fucking Morons who like to have fun, god dammit!

    ReplyDelete
  176. If they didn't figure that out when Kelly Kelly was champion and nobody cared, they never will. I cheered when Beth finally got that plastic woman's belt.

    ReplyDelete
  177. No argument here. She isn't a champion, but is perfectly good.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Its a shallow place and this guy doesnt think people are attractive enough to be on TV

  179. I headed into NXT with the same feeling. I was hearing the buzz about Charlotte, and heard that the Natty match was good, so I checked it out thinking, "Well the main roster girls aren't all that great... and the ones that aren't good enough for the main roster are on NXT... so I'm sure it's good for girls with 5 matches under their belt."


    I was wrong. It's better than good women's wrestling. It's good wrestling, period.

    ReplyDelete
  180. Huh. I've never seen Kevin Dunn before. Kind disappointing. I expected him to be an even more weaselly, buck-toothed Mike Graham.

    ReplyDelete
  181. She needs to work on being awkward and forced in her promos and working crappy matches that cause people to want to hit ffw and go take a leak

    Side note: The week of April Fools day you should book BoD RAW in the style of Dunn or Russo.

  183. 80's Dunn

  184. I was more than a little underwhelmed going in, based on how excited I was for the Rumble this year, but man, what a great show. I'm not ready to call it the best show in a decade yet, but it was damn good top to bottom, and reminded me of their indy version X-7 or Canadian Stampede. Bravo to Trips and crew for executing.

    ReplyDelete
  185. If NXT is truly a developmental place, holding back guys just to put on awesome shows when they could be doing that on Raw is stupid.

    ReplyDelete
  186. This was overrated, NXT lacks entertainment. What the hell these fans see in this, women getting screen time, but we have dancing negroes in the main roster.



    Hunter, I'm very disappointed with you.

  187. Great review Scott, I gave the ME ****1/2.

    ReplyDelete
  188. At least he lost to Brock.

    ReplyDelete
  189. I thought the obvious follow-up here would be a Last Man Standing match.

    ReplyDelete
  190. Agreed. They money just be way better. And honestly, while they would be wrestling more, I'm sure they wouldn't mind doing a bunch of 3-5 minute matches for way more moolah.
