BoD Daily Update

Undertaker Update

According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com, the plan is for the Undertaker not to make any live appearances as a way to build anticipation for his first appearance since losing at WrestleMania. The Undertaker will respond to Wyatt's challenge, just not in front of a live crowd.

  1. Good, good for Joe. I wonder if ROH will do a Joe VS Styles VS Daniels rematch?

    And Taker not being on TV is one of those things that make me wish Paul Bearer was still alive.

  2. Just caught the last NJPW show on Axs TV. Ibushi vs. Nakamura from the G1 (I think the one in 2013) and it was pretty sweet. If New Japan World has an english option, I may subscribe and check it out.

    If the crazy rumor is true, Lesnar may barely be on WrestleMania this year, as in 'video package to explain why our World Champion walked out' in a kayfabe way. Fun to think of the possibilities of Vince's biggest show falling into the crapper thirty days out.

    More because of the rampant hypocrisy over protecting people over failed drug tests because they're 'the guy' while suspending others. I've said it before and I'll say it again: the WWE is the most sophomoric corporation in the NYSE, and that's saying something.

    Whether the Lesnar/Reigns/Drug Test rumor is true or not, the damage is quite likely done. Outside of a major refutation from the dirt sheets and something bigger coming along to distract people, there will be a persistent segment who believes the rumor to be true, and that kind of black sheep segment will fester and basically shadow Reigns for some time to come. It may come to the point where, if not true, I'd feel bad for the guy. If it is true, though? Fuck him and the retarded horse he rode in on. You have to be six shades of stupid (or just not give a fuck) to get capped on a drug test a month before the biggest show of his life.

  68. So this rumor I was handed got me thinking: How much of a problem is confirmation bias when it comes to this stuff? As BK notes below: how much of the steam behind stories is the Peter Pan system of "we want it to be true, therefore it is true even if it's false"?

    So using the current roster what would everyone have as the mania card? Some armchair booking is allowed and probably required for some of this. Mine.....

    WWE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP: (C) Brock Lesnar vs Daniel Bryan
    * Bryan returns unannounced at the rumble and wins

    Triple threat match for the money in the bank: Seth Rollins vs Roman Reigns vs Dean Ambrose
    * shield doesn't break up. Rollins wins briefcase. HHH starts to get in his ear about how he is the architect and could do better than being third wheel of the shield. Roman Reigns wins and sets himself up for a push towards wrestlemania 32

    Triple H vs Dolph Ziggler
    * triple h gets tired of dolph being defiant and insulting Stephanie over and over

    AJ Lee and Paige vs Bellas

    Sting and Undertaker vs the Wyatt family
    * wyatts don't break up. Bray calls out undertaker repeatedly. Undertaker shows up but is surrounded by the wyatts. Lights out again. Sting high in the arena bat pointing. Lights out again. Taker dissapears. Wyatt sets it up on the mic.

    Andre the giant memorial battle Royal

    John Cena vs Rusev
    * makes sense. This would be their first matchup. Not a rematch.


    INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP:
    (C) Bad News Barrett vs Sheamus
    * hard hitting fight!


    TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP SCRAMBLE
    (C) Usos vs Cesaro and Kidd vs ascension vs prime time players vs lucha Dragons vs Goldust and Cody Rhodes vs Miz and mizdow

    NXT CHAMPIONSHIP:
    (c) Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn

  114. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 25, 2015 at 7:47 AM

    You're not alone, let's put it that way. This year's WrestleMania card feels lackluster and void of specialness. Sting/Triple H is a dream match that no one actually dreamed up. Undertaker is washed up and useless now. Cena is going to get his win back. Reigns will be the World Champion 3/4ths of the fan base hates. There's not much to look forward to.

    Promo #1 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbzRo9OtBMA

    Promo #2 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IW2GVQlTdBg

    Dean Ambrose has bigger problems than that, if SmackDown spoilers are any indication.

  142. I said it before and I'll say it again today (since that's all we do here):

    Any other company would LOVE to have the immediate crowd reactions that WWE live events/social media provides and would use that information to deliver a product that the public wanted. WWE can find out immediately what its audience responds to. McDonald's
    doesn't have live crowds that cheer or boo its new product attempts.
    Taco Bell doesn't know if serving breakfast is a good idea until it
    spends millions rolling out the products, training employees, and paying
    employees for additional hours. Paramount doesn't really know if
    audiences will take to Hot Tub Time Machine 2 until they finish the film
    and start testing it with audiences. Meanwhile, WWE has the ability to completely switch gears week-to-week if something isn't working... and they don't.

    There is literally nothing simpler than this business model:
    1) Consumers want X
    2) Provide consumers X
    3) Enjoy profits

    Instead, WWE follows this model:
    1) Consumers want X
    2) Provide consumers with B, G, K, W, Z, and "WE'RE HAVING FUN, MAGGLE!"
    3) Enjoy much smaller profits

    CM Punk said perhaps the truest thing in wrestling: McMahon is a millionaire who should be a billionaire.

  143. As soon as Reigns came back, Ambrose was stuck in a feud with Wyatt to cool him off. WWE didn't want the much more popular Ambrose getting more cheers than Reigns.

    Let's assume that the Reigns stuff is bullshit, which it looks like it is. What exactly had Lesnar so perturbed as to storm out of Raw early, because that much has been verified as true. I doubt they would fly Brock out to Nashville and then just not use him, especially so close to WrestleMania, and the main event felt weird and disjointed on Raw, as if they were killing time and trying to cover for something. I doubt he would've made a power-play so randomly; something had to happen, but the question is what.

  145. Hopefully one of these years Undertaker stretches it out so he waits until all the way after Wrestlemania is over to make his annual Wrestlemania appearance.

  146. Maybe Lesnar doesn't want to be in a trainwreck main event at WM for the second time

  147. There's also an aspect of business where you create a market by convincing people that they want something. It's how new products are introduced. Vince is just guilty of going too far in that direction.

  151. I doubt Lesnar would give half a shit if the entire stadium walked out prior to his match starting, and he wrestled the whole match to one guy in the front row chanting "boring" for 20 minutes.

    I could buy Brock Lesnar not wanting to wrestle a guy with toxic heat from the crowd in Santa Clara for fear that it lessens his drawing power. I don't really get the whole 'he's on steroids, fuck him' angle, but the former I could buy.

  156. I honestly don't see how they are going to make much more than an average PPV for Mania this year. Are they soldout yet?

    PWInsider pretty much debunked the Lesnar/Reigns deal: Lesnar was upset about his business deal with the WWE, and that's what led to the walkout on Monday. Specifics aren't exactly known, but it doesn't seem to tie into Roman Reigns at all. #SadFace

    ReplyDelete
  160. I wouldn't be surprised if the WWE flew Brock out there, then decided not to use him in fear of messing up Reigns lukewarm reaction. Brock just got pissed he was flown out there for nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  161. I think the steroid thing is a way bigger deal than a dead crowd. If he wants to get back into ufc or even just use ufc as leverage working with a guy on steroids could give him too much wrestling stink. Yeah he has some but when he goes back to legit stuff he'll be labled in as a steroid guy anyways because of his wwe time, and putting over a guy all juiced out would just make it worse for his brand.

  164. Have Bray and Taker be HIAC and recreate some classic Taker matches. Have Bray through Taker off of the Cell and then through the Cell. Then, bring up that Truck from Armageddon and have Bray throw him onto that.

  166. I don't buy the reddit story but PWInsider didn't debunk it. They said he was upset about a "buisness decision and not at creative". Wouldn't the steroid thing be more classified under buisness than creative?

  168. Absolutely true, but then you have to succeed at convincing people. And if you don't, you backtrack or take another approach.

    McDonald's spent millions trying to convince people that Arch Deluxe was the next great hamburger. People still far preferred the Big Mac. McD's ended up eventually pulling the plug on the Arch Deluxe.

    If Vince ran McDonald's, he'd discontinue the Big Mac in order to sell more Arch Deluxes, and tell the employees to ridicule customers if they came in and ordered a Big Mac.

    If so, the WWE is fucking retarded, and will have to keep Brock off TV until 'Mania itself. They can't be so ignorant to not see what kind of reaction the guy will get.

  170. Brock refusing the match would do the trick. Whatever it is between Brock and Vince, I just truly hope it ruins wrestlemania and reigns push.

  171. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 25, 2015 at 8:21 AM

    I read it more as "I'm not happy with my deal" more so than "I don't want to work with that guy because of X reasons". I would think he'd have a problem creatively if it were over the Reigns situation.

    ReplyDelete
  172. Whatever it is, it was serious enough that Brock wouldn't even come out and stand next to Heyman as Heyman delivered his promo.

    I'm doubting its the steroid thing, but something is up.

  173. The only thing I read is that won agasint the Miz, is there something else ?

  174. I think the next two weeks WWE are going to be in smark heavy cities. Reigns is going to get shit on there no matter what so that might be a better places to use Brock and then just blame the bizzaro world.

  175. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 25, 2015 at 8:26 AM

    What's funny is that the smark cities are the only cities that seem to give a crap anymore. You're either in Smark Zone or Dead Zone if you're the WWE.

  186. The Reigns/Lesnar story is actually part of Triple H meta-Kayfabe Reality Era booking. They will reveal that Reigns only beat Bryan because he was on the juice thus stripping him of his Rumble win and granting Bryan his rematch close at WM. It's all a work you guys !

  189. So basically half of the main eventers for Mania— Undertaker, Lesnar, Sting— will either not appear on TV or at most appear 1-2 times total to build their matches?



    Is the main event on the go home Raw gonna involve Los Matadores?

  190. WWE just put out a press release announcing "WWE SURPASSES NBA AS #1 SPORTS CHANNEL ON YOUTUBE"
