Who Was Behind Lana's Babyface Turn?

Vince McMahon was the driving force behind Lana's face turn, believing that she was "too hot and blonde to be a heel," which is why they put her with Dolph Ziggler.

Comments

  1. I loved Daniel and AJ as a pairing. It was funny and made a lot of sense.

    Hell, the pairing makes more sense in real life than Punk and AJ.

    ReplyDelete
  2. I can definitely see Vince asking when they're going to turn the pretty, white, blonde face.

    ReplyDelete
  3. 3. Pink. 434 days in an era where the belt was changing every other month.

    So good.

  5. Bruno and Hulk followed the same formula too - Battling the heel of the month up and down the East Coasr that was usually imported from Mid Atlantic or the AWA. Such a simple concept that made millions for the McMahons.

    The best pickup I had over the birthday weekend was DEFINITELY the McLusky album I found in Pittsburgh. Now to drive home, get some doughnuts and relax. Happy 35!

  7. Outrageous. Either of Austins runs in 98 are far more important.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Way haven't they pulled the trigger for bigger things for Luke Harper? Guy has a weird charisma and can work. After seeing his indy work, I thought for sure Harper would be a Foley 2.0 by this point. Guess not.

    I would love for you to be right there, but alas.

  10. I never heard of them until I read this post. Their album names are pretty interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  11. A hot blonde who gets in a fight with her boyfriend so she jumps on another guy an hour later resulting in said boyfriend now wanting to kill the new guy over her isn't a heel?

    ReplyDelete
  12. And how many days in that reign did it feel like he was the actual main event? Because there were times he didn't even close the show.

    ReplyDelete
  13. It's funny cuz it's TRUE.

    ReplyDelete
  14. R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.May 25, 2015 at 7:20 AM

    He's too good at his character and it hurts him because he doesn't need to be protected. Giant crazy redneck is immediately threatening the way he plays it, no matter how often he loses.

    Perma-threatening guys, regardless of win record, are almost as hard to find as superstars.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Just saw "The Babadook." I have a LOT of research to do...

    ReplyDelete
  16. The new guy is just a tool for hot blonde to get her boyfriend to appreicate her. Haven't we all been there?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Too many times.

    ReplyDelete
  18. That's a great movie. That book was fucking creepy as hell.

    ReplyDelete
  19. R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.May 25, 2015 at 7:21 AM

    Holy shit that would be a great character!

    Insta feuds, believable motivation. She just intentionally flirts with other wrestlers to puss Rusev off.

    ReplyDelete
  20. It's the type of film that has a lot of underlying themes and hidden messages, and I'm usually too stupid to pick up on them and have to read about it later.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I always stopped watching after his match, so he was the main event to me.

    ReplyDelete
  22. My ex used to flirt with guys at bars just so her eventual husband would get pissed off and start a fight, showing her the attention she craved.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Which is why we get vested in that type of storytelling that gets everybody involved looking better in our eyes when it pays off.

    How many fights between Popeye and Bluto could have been avoided if that scrawny whore didn't stir shit up.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Mine too, especially when we would go on a 'break'. I would see right thru it these days, but when I was 18-22 when it happened, emotions and pride always trumped common sense.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Bruno over Hogan?

    I don't think so, brother.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'd say this about covers it. I can't even argue for Austin's reigns because they were broken up over that 2-3 year period. Punk had a long reign but, you know...

    ReplyDelete
  30. It's apparently a big long extended metaphor about grief and how you can't ever truly get over it, it'll always be there in the basement needing to be fed, but you can't let it consume you. Or something or other.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I was actually the "new guy" in one of those scenarios when I was 19. Interestingly, I was told the scenario by the girl who wanted to make her very recent ex jealous. I had my reasons, so I went along with it and the girl and I "dated" for a week. Which was fine because she was attractive. And the dude fell for it hook line and sinker. Then she made his life merry hell for the next year or so. Really. She made his life hell.


    Because anyone willing to do that is clearly crazy and I felt the guy sort of deserved it. The reason I didn't like him was because one night we were all at this truck stop diner we frequented after clubbing. And I came up and said hello to one of the people at his table and he chastised me for talking during a song which was playing on the jukebox. What song you ask? The Rooster by Alice in Chains. And he really chastised me for it. Threatened to take me out to the parking lot if I didn't shut up and let him listen to the song. Which...it was on the jukebox. I didn't know he picked it. So I said OK and walked away and swore that in some way...I would get my revenge for him being a tool. (He was a massive tool in other ways as well. He was really big into cock blocking everyone.)


    Ahh. Youth. :) . Haven't thought about that interaction in years.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I forgot Big Show was off tv.

    Was he injured or just taking a rest?

    ReplyDelete
  33. He was pooping. It takes him a while.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Don't give WWE ideas, they may use that as his next gimmick.

    ReplyDelete
  35. "He's gonna do it! Heeee's Gonnnna Pooop!"

    ReplyDelete
  36. I saw a house show report for a show that featured a Jimmy Uso vs Brad Maddux match. That doesn't seem like it would be a very interesting match.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I think it's literally a case of theres too many guys in the uppermidcard at the moment, that's theres a lack of space for him.

    As Heels, you have Seth Rollins & The Authority with Kane/Show. You have Rusev & Wyatt as top heels and Seamus/Barrett getting pushes. He's about 8th on the heel list right now.

    ReplyDelete
  38. When you're the 'other' person, you get a charge out of messing with someone else's woman because you see what a joke the relationship is. And you get the best of the woman as she leaves and her man gets to deal with the rest of the stuff you don't have to.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Farooq in the main event slot of a ppv was not good. King of the ring 97.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Jimmy probably flew around the ring enough to make it not terrible.

    ReplyDelete
  41. But you have to give them credit for creating a fresh matchup, even if it's a curtain jerker. You could stumble across two guys who have great chemistry.

    ReplyDelete
  42. R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.May 25, 2015 at 7:46 AM

  44. What are these weird little bumps I keep getting on my feet?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Cancerous growths.
    You're going to die.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thought of Harper and Rusev stiffing the hell out of each other would make for an interesting match.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Even as Ron Simmons in WCW he was OK at best in the ring.
    if it wasn't for the whole black World Champion thing, his WCW title run would be completely forgotten.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I wasn't around here yesterday. Was there any discussion of Meltzer's radio show from Sunday? He lays waste to people denying the TNA story. I've never heard him go off like that.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I would start with benadryl & see if that clears it up.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hey, didn't realise anyone outside of Wales (and maybe UK) knew of them! You have to, if you haven't already, check out Future of the Left and Jarcrew.

    ReplyDelete
  51. They're ready for raw then

    ReplyDelete
  52. He sounded pretty fed up didn't he? Maintains that everybody knows the story is true and he's just baffled by the reaction

    ReplyDelete
  53. Remember on this memorial day, freedom isn't free; it costs folks like you and me; and if we don't all chip in we'll never pay that bill. freedom isn't free; there's a hefty fucking fee and if you don't throw in your buck o'five, who will?

  57. they gave him the IC title

    ReplyDelete
  58. So what you're saying is France, Fuck Yeah?

    ReplyDelete
  59. He suffered from that typical "give a guy the world title but don't push him as the top guy" thing that they've done with Bryan and others before. Sting, Vader, Jake and others were still pushed ahead of him, and he defended his title in the midcard against guys like The Barbaran

    ReplyDelete
  60. I really hate parades (stuck at a parade)

    ReplyDelete
  65. but he turned heel in the middle of it

    ReplyDelete
  66. I feel that this has also revealed the reasons for Naomi's nonsensical heel turn.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I always get a chuckle out of the people who thank soldiers for "defending our freedom". Like we'd all be converted to Muslim and in concentration camps if it wasn't for a bunch of high school dropouts.

    ReplyDelete
  68. That's my Memorial Day hot take.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Despite how often ECW fans include Jericho on their lists of greats who went through the company. He was only in there for 3 months.
    Rick Rude was in the company longer than him.

    ReplyDelete

    They deserve a couple holidays.

    ReplyDelete
  73. He was associated with the Authority at that point so maybe that was the beginning of something that was forgotton about,

    ReplyDelete
  74. they also get first seating on planes, reduced prices on stuff, and a few free bucks on cruises

  75. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogMay 25, 2015 at 8:00 AM

    Yeah they love to take credit for guys who ended up great later

    ReplyDelete
  76. Why isn't Jimmy Uso being used as a midcard singles guy?

    If he gets over and works as a singles guy. Brilliant a new star.
    If he flops, then they have a JTTS with name value for a few months, then he is immediately rehabbed as a character when his brother returns and they reform.

    Where is the downside?

    ReplyDelete
  77. R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.May 25, 2015 at 8:01 AM

    Volunteered to come in to work to catch up on back paperwork.

    I'm literally the only one in this wing of the building and it's kind of spooky.

    ReplyDelete
  78. When the segment started, Bryan brought up TNA, and Dave says "I'm over it." Then he goes off a 10 minute rant calling them stupid and liars. "Why would anyone ever want to work with them after they acted like this?" was one of my favorite lines.

    ReplyDelete
  79. It's amazing to look back on the reigns of Austin and Rock and think they were not only insanely brief, but also pretty weak. Austin's first reign was typified by a lack of credible challengers, and a recurring cast of opponents - in fact, not one main event between March and November that year featured anyone other than some permutation of Foley, Kane, Undertaker. His second and third much the same. His fourth was actually a bit of a mess too, with Taker and Kane yet again at the forefront of things, then Benoit/Jericho one month, then the rest spent on the Invasion/Alliance epic fail.

    Rock's strongest title run came between June and October 2000, roughly four months of great matches and standing tall. Even then, he was overshadowed by Austin's return and the HHH/Angle storyline.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Naomi's heel turn actually makes sense (nice girl always getting overlooked) but the follow up has been terrible (like almost everything else).

    ReplyDelete
  81. I ain't complaining.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I'm perfectly happy with the phraseology "Those who would defend our freedoms were our freedoms literally under attack from Nazis at the border", and would buy anyone a beer who voltunteered to do that. But the concept of "defending our freedoms every day" in unneccessary foreign wars that only cause to make the world more dangerous, yeah, no dice on that.

    ReplyDelete
  83. R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.May 25, 2015 at 8:02 AM

    Yeah. But any job where there's a decent chance of taking a gunshot wound, can have a discount on coffee.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Like when they gave Booker the TV title run when Stevie got injured

    ReplyDelete
  85. Really? A first reign that included two matches vs. upper midcard Foley, and a principal opponent who's a non-wrestler?

    ReplyDelete
  86. I was being a bit saracastic, but I agree with you.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogMay 25, 2015 at 8:04 AM

    ReplyDelete
  90. They're not high school dropouts most of the time. This was an incredibly ignorant comment.

    ReplyDelete
  91. He's the samoan, whose father is Rikishi, he was the tag team champion with his brother a few times.

    ReplyDelete
  92. To clarify, no problem with soldiers but "defending our freedoms" is just a phrase used to shut down dissent and needs to be attacked everytime it's used.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Hot and blonde is part of the reason she was a great heel.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Isn't this some kind of liability issue? What happens if you somehow get hurt and there's no one else around?

    ReplyDelete
  95. Lou Thesz's 5 1/2 year NWA reign belongs in the discussion.

    ReplyDelete
  96. He must be related to Samoa Joe because all Samoan wrestlers are related.

    ReplyDelete
  97. R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.May 25, 2015 at 8:07 AM

  100. The bullshit is she should be a face because the Bella's are bitches. Suddenly we are supposed to feel sorry for them because the black girl and the Snuka's daughter kicked their asses for being bitches.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Flair 1989 and Macho 1989 were pretty good before the heel turns.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogMay 25, 2015 at 8:10 AM

    8.5 Chan. I met maybe two high school dropouts out of hundreds I served with. Of the many friends who died in combat, most were college students who volunteered. One was a broker who worked in the Trade Center (just happened to be off on 9/11) and made more money than most of us will ever see. That was before enlisting. Volunteered for Marine Corps infantry. But yeah, high school dropouts.

    ReplyDelete
  103. That's the line they gave me at my job. There has to be a manager around if you want to come in off hours.

    ReplyDelete
  104. At last nights AAA show, Rey Mysterio won the main event, after it went into "sudden death".

    Do you think they thought that booking through or was everyone involved too high to notice?

  112. R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.May 25, 2015 at 8:16 AM

    Didn't Soulja Boy make a song called "Fuck da Troops" or something like that a few years ago?

    On the "where the hell did that come from?" scale, that's got to be one of the highest scores ever.

  113. Freedoms also includes Freedom to be a knob.

  122. "Vince McMahon was the driving force behind Lana's face turn, believing
    that she was "too hot and blonde to be a heel," which is why they put
    her with Dolph Ziggler." It always seems strange to me when the greatest wrestling promoter of all time is so ignorant. The fact that she is hot and a blond, while trashing our country, is part of what makes her such a great heel.

  146. USA needs a military. Obviously at some level the military is needed to "defend our freedom." That's why every country needs a military. But right now, we have a military big enough to take on the next dozen or so biggest militaries. However, I dont see China, Russia, UK, India, etc forming an alliance to take out USA, so we are just wasting hundreds of billions of dollars. It is hard to see how our occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan "defends our freedom." And you're right that most wars aren't defending our freedom. I think you'd have to go back to WWII for the last war that truly "defended our freedom", and both my grandfathers were too young to serve in it. So I get the point you are trying to make. However at some level somewhere, soldiers have defended our freedom, and may be needed to in the future again. But military resources have been wasted. Soldiers have died in many unneeded wars. So therefore, the truth is far more complicated than the "MURICA" crowd wants to make it.

    It's fine not to reunite all the Wyatt's just yet esp. after building Bray up on his own for most of the year, but I hope this doesn't mean Rown & Harper aren't a team anymore. There's still plenty of gold there left to mine with them being a monster heel team...yknow, like The Ascension was supposed to be.

  160. Bruno was on top as champion for about 12 years. I don't think he had a major title before this. His first WWWF title reign was about seven years, his second was about four years.

    Hogan was on top as a face in his initial run with the company for about six years. That is from his 1984-93 stint in the WWF. Four years, one year, eight months, one week, and three months. If you want to count his 1994-96 babyface run in WCW - then you could add about one year, giving Hogan about seven years with the title. His other regin of terror lasted (with the title) for only two years - but with WCW - it was like - thanks for holding on to my title, brother - so it was more like three years. As a face, however, counting the early stuff - about six to seven years.

    And no love for Opie? Backland was champion, more or less, for five years. He was a plunky babyface. I'm sad Bobby doesn't have his own DVD. The matches he carried a young Hogan to were fantastic.

    Savage, sadly, was a better babyface in 1987 before winning the title in a era where I wanted Hogan champ killed anything Savage could have done in that era.

    And ironically, I loved babyface Flair. His life and role fit a better heel, but there was something unique about babyface Flair. Both his 1983 and 1993 face runs were unique. In the later years, his face runs were nothing - but maybe the NWA just gave Flair an eloquence as both a face and heel that neither WCW or WWE could give him.

  165. I think that is why Scott reboots 1989 so much. Savage truly had an edge from Feb 4 to April 2, 1989. In retrospect, he could have carried the WWF into the summer as the heel champion - taking Hogan out on a stretcher for a count out at Wrestlemania V with Hogan winning the title at Summerslam 89. But - Hogan still had stock in 1989 and I'm
    Kind of glad we had Hogan vs. Honky for a SNME title match.
