Roman Reigns unexplained hate....

Hey Scott, quick question....

Can you explain my extreme hatred for Roman Reigns? I mean I really liked him in the shield and I even liked when he started his singles run but since the Royal Rumble, I HATE the guy. I mean I do not even want to see him on my tv HATE the guy. Is it because I am pissed that Daniel Bryan got pushed to the undercard so swiftly...I am also a Dean Ambrose fan so I am so confused how they cannot hear the support for him even after all the horrible months of booking....

I loved Roman's Wrestlemania match because it featured two things: he got destroyed for most of the match and he lost at the end!
I did throw out an audible groan when he survived 3 freaking F5s but the Undertaker could not the year before. 

What do you think? How can I get over this? Because I am thinking about leaving the product and the Network for good since the new shows are gonna suck...

Thanks!

​Yeah, but kicking out of 3 F5s after the Undertaker couldn't is intended to build him up as a badass main event guy.  So that was deliberate and I didn't mind it.  In fact, as I've said all along, I have NO PROBLEM with Reigns and I had no problem with Reigns as the top guy.  As long as there was a good story to get him there and he was ready. Which there wasn't, and he wasn't.  They had a story in place since March 2014 and they just didn't bother to tell it until March 2015.  Sorry, guys, but you can't make a new main guy with that kind of lazy buildup.  

As to how you can get over it, I would suggest gazing on Roman's beautiful hair and meaty thighs, then watching the Brock match a bunch of times.  Seeing Reigns getting his ass handed to him in spectacular fashion and knowing in advance that he fails really is quite cathartic.    ​

  1. Good recap. Yeah, not as scandalous as I thought it would be but maybe that's because the two are tapped out from all the shoot interviews they've done.

    Kind of funny how Honky says he continually re-invents himself.

  4. Any more info about that Kanyon shoot that Missy was talking about? Or did you already cover it?

  5. Its a roundtable that includes the Iron Sheik too and was apparently filmed just a few weeks before Kanyon committed suicide. I havent seen this before.

  6. I had the biggest crush on Missy back in the late 80's/early 90's. She doesn't get talked about much now as she's been out of the spotlight for a while but she was one of the hottest women ever in wrestling IMO. I was watching an old Clash with her on it and my wife walked in when she was on screen and remarked about how beautiful she was.

    You don't get fucked though as it was a good read like usual.

  8. The Steele Timeline is excellent though.

  9. Peak Missy was 1993 Starrcade in that pink outfit.

    that was one of the highlights of the show, easily

  12. How much do wrestlers get paid for these shoots? Obviously it depends on their star power, but just in general.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Just a guess but from what I gather $500-$3,000.

    When did Missy get hideous? Because that was certainly not always the case

  15. Honky has been working the same gimmick since like 1986 so I'm not sure about the reinvention bit, but I've always respected that he's been able to carve out a living on the indy's.

    I'm glad to see some 80s stuff in the queue.

  16. Probably just down to very few women looking as good in their 50s as they did in their twenties. Especially after a life on the road. That'll get you.

  17. Considering she is 52, she doesn't look bad at all.

  18. I get what he meant by that. One day he is a wrestler, the next he is bad Elvis Impersonator. So he either wrestles in the ring or reinvents himself as a comic book hero. Doesn't make much sense, but I got his message.

    It's awkward as hell and yeah, Missy said some mean shit to Kanyon and came across like an idiot.

    ''Are you the guy or the girl in the relationship?'' type stuff

  20. I think he meant "reinventing" in terms of doing different things to make money- he dropped going to indy shows to wrestle and went to comic cons instead, for example.

  21. I don't think Honky stayed sober- when he was at the Calgary Comic Expo a couple years back, a guy I talk to from my local comic shop saw him COMPLETELY wasted at like 8 in the morning because they were staying at the same hotel.

  22. Drugs & booze will fuck anyone up, ESPECIALLY if they're a woman. Their bodies just aren't designed for that kind of punishment. Age doesn't help.

    Yeah, but she has looked bombed out and depleted for years now. I'm just asking when she started going downhill

  24. Around 04-05 I think.
