  13. So, with the glance Harper and Wyatt had on Smackdown and the news of Rowan going back to heel on house shows, does this mean a possible Wyatt Family reunion is in the works?

    Well, since HHH was going to be the original winner, I can see their plans for Vader & Jake's interaction sticking, and it's around this time Austin was starting to get into Vince's ear (in his own, non-Kliq way), so they went with him instead. Mero was getting a big push around this time, but you know how Vince likes to change his mind (and in this case, thank god).

  39. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©May 4, 2015 at 7:30 AM

    He solved a Rubik cube in the fastest time possible, the whole locker room was around to cheer him on, Dunn showed the crowd watching the backstage drama as well, and when Rowan finally cracked it, the pop he got was huge. After that, he turned face and never looked back.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yeah, Austin fought Mero again at International Incident and then at Buried Alive HHH was on the tail end of his 5 month burial and doing replacement job duty for Vega.

  43. Bayless, you missed the most important news of the YEAR. Hulk Hogan confirmed he would be wrestling at WrestleMania 32, and he wants to do it for the title:

    "“Next year, WrestleMania is going to be where the Dallas Cowboys play at
    the AT&T stadium and next year they’re going to try to break my
    indoor attendance record,” Hogan said. “So, I stopped Vince McMahon in
    the hallway and said, ‘Let me tell you something brother, there’s no way
    you’re running WrestleMania next year without Hulk Hogan on the card.
    Whether it’s for my last hurrah and it’s my retirement match, whether
    it’s for my next run or whether it’s to just beat whoever’s got the WWE
    title and become the champion again. If you guys are in that stadium
    next year, I’m going to be there.’ And Vince McMahon shook my hand and
    said, ‘I look forward to it.’


    If it happened I would want it to be the greatest match of all time, of
    course … If it’s the end of my career and a huge emotional send-off that
    would be great, or if it’s the beginning of another huge run for
    Hulkamania and me chasing the dream of winning the WWE title, that would
    be brilliant. I’m thinking very positively about getting back in the
    ring.”"

    This is literally the only way WWE has a hope in hell of selling out a 100k seat arena. The most popular wrestler in American history going for one last shot at the title. This is what dreams are made of.

    ReplyDelete
  44. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©May 4, 2015 at 7:33 AM

    Rowan as a heel only seems to work when he's in a group. The only thing I see for his singles career is that he's either a face midcarder, or a face JTTS.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Shawn was really ornery that whole match. Resting on the top rope and cursing when the fan jumps the ring, cursing Cena out in clear view of the camera mid-match for not selling the knee like one of his mid-90s temper tantrums, and then shooting on Cena by refusing a handshake for real after the match.

    ReplyDelete
  46. If Mania 32 is Hogan's last match, I think WWE will have to be aware that the media coverage is going to be bigger than the Rousey deal this year. They will have to have a big media pit. It will be like the Japanese photographers at the Yokozuna match at King of the Ring 1993, but actual photographers and not kayfabe ones.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I think it was the best work of his career.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Yeah, I think Shawn less resented jobbing to Cena and more resented being put in the position to have to job to Cena. Kind of hard to blame him for that, too, considering that there was no reason to run face/face HBK/Cena as a WM main except to feed HBK to the CENA IS THE BEST EVER machine.

  58. You know what's a cool move? Kagetora's Ikkitousen. In fact, for about a month in 2005, Cena turned the FU into a bit of a variation of that move, though he went back to the regular FU once he went to Raw.

  60. ...


    You know, I'm aware that you haven't been around in quite some time. So to welcome you back, I'd like to say something with complete and utter sincerity.

    Fuck Hulk Hogan. Fuck his character. Fuck any and everything he's done since...well for me, WM9. For most of the wrestling world, 2000 or so. Fuck him with an electric cattle prod while his stripper of an ex wife watches and laughs, and his son drinks, drives, and nearly kills someone else.

    In short, fuck that guy.

  66. You know, the angle they had with Rowan being some kind of savant was actually interesting and cool. So, of course they dropped in and will now make him a generic heel, because fuck him and fuck us.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Maybe the fat got in the way?

    ReplyDelete
  68. That's unfortunate you feel that way. If it wasn't for Hulk Hogan, you probably wouldn't even see pro wrestling on TV these days.

    "Well,
    who knows more about that organization than me, brother?… Let me tell
    you something. I made that organization a monster. I made people rich up
    there. I made the people that ran that organization rich up there. And
    when it all came to pass, the name Hulk Hogan, the man Hulk Hogan, got
    bigger than the whole organization"

  70. uh....no. Technically, seeing Jake's match at WM2 pulled me in, and if you want to say that there would have been no WM2 without Hogan, note that I did specify WM9 - though I could have probably gone back to WM8.

    ReplyDelete
  73. My brother pointed out that if you watch the six movies in numerical order it ruins so much. You now know that Vader is Luke's father and that he didn't kill Anakin Skywalker, he IS Anakin Skywalker. You know that Luke and Leia are twins. You know Vader was a whiny bitch before he became the most badass villain in the galaxy, meaning that he's no longer quite as bad ass. You wonder how Obi-Wan aged 40 years in 18. You wonder why the Obi-Wan/Vader lightsabre battle looks like two old men sparring.

    Anyone who is introducing their kids to Star Wars for the first time better start with A New Hope.

    Well, Obi-Wan was older, and Vader no longer had his limbs, so I'll assume that the suit weighs him down a lot and doesn't allow him to move as freely as he did before.

  86. Yes. And there would be no WrestleMania 2 without Hulk Hogan. There would've been no wrestling boom in the late 1990s without Hulk Hogan's heel turn.

  95. Look. I *specifically* said fuck him since WM9 for me, and 2000 for most of the rest of the smarks. That means I understand his contribution prior to that time, including WM. You restating it makes it seem like you can't read, or you're just a giant troll.


    Either way, fuck. that. guy. I'd rather watch fucking Cena rap for 3 hours than see Hogan wrestle another match.

    ReplyDelete
  96. They suspended my account saying they were unable to process payment on the card I have on file, the same card I have used since signing up on day one. The same card with plenty of money in the account that has been made to use purchases before and after the email saying they could not process payment. I cant even change the payment option on the WWE site as it does not give me that choice. This makes zero sense and they have yet to respond to my email and you are on hold forever when you call.

    I saw it in theater a few years back and it's aged remarkably well. Not to mention that it's still actually scary. It was at a horror fest full of hardcore genre fans, and during the last act I took a sip of my soda and realized it was the only noise from anyone in the theater. It was amazing. This is a crowd that just got done laughing their way through Cannibal Ferox.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I had that happen once, deleted and added the card back and it worked fine.

  108. Jeremy RinehartMay 4, 2015 at 8:17 AM

    I believe he said he was promised the booker spot in the WWF right around WM VIII, but he wound up not getting it. I think he would have went to WCW and feuded with people like Dustin Rhodes.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I never liked lawler as a wrestler and thought that whole Kauffman deal was one of the more overrated things in wrestling history - but as a cowardly heel there may be no one better. His whole speech before that summerslam match with Hart about saving orphans was fantastic too

    ReplyDelete
  110. Shawn Michaels would have no business beating Hulk Hogan. Hogan is four hundred times the draw that Michaels is. Michaels "big run" as champion occurred exactly when WCW was destroying WWF in the ratings.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Yeah, I think you're going to have to do what Jeremy did if you want the network back. I'm guessing they're farming out their CS to a generic call center, and all they are doing is documenting calls and attempting to placate callers.

  119. Not when that match occurred. History, in case you hadn't noticed, doesn't really mean shit in wrestling, aside from nice talking points and documentaries. The nostalgic run with Hogan lasted as long as it should have. His beating HBK was just silly, but inevitable, given they way Terry does business. You wanna be a Hogan mark and come back in to the BoD singing his praises, that's fine. Tis a free country. I will no longer be trolled by you.

    Oh, it's an Italian cannibal flick from '81. It's cheesy but still pretty stomach-turning (not as bad as Cannibal Holocaust, though). And it seems like the third Halloween has been undergoing a rehabilitation with horror fans over the past few years. I think part of it is Tom Atkins in the lead role - Night of the Creeps got huge, so people are starting to appreciate it for him being there. Also, it's hilarious and fun. Franchises have had worse bastard stepchildren.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Jeremy RinehartMay 4, 2015 at 8:24 AM

    He went to rehab shortly after the Sting match. Had Jake returned, I see him feuding with Dustin, then turning and having a brief run with Vader.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Maybe, but I seriously doubt it has anything to do with the CS. I would be shocked beyond belief if they actually had a call center that was actually theirs fielding calls. No way.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Is Erick Rowan really a genius or was that just a stupid storyline that went nowhere?

    ReplyDelete
  128. Yeah, watching the RAW shows leading up to this one really hits home how they completely left the main event out to die. Once they lost the Diana storyline it was like "Fuck it, just get to the match and move on to the Vader feud" and all the focus went to Undertaker v. Mankind instead.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I remember seeing that shit when it came out. Dug it.

  137. Hogan/Michaels SummerSlam 2005 did 650k buys, the 2nd highest SummerSlam ever (only 1998 was higher -- 700k).

    Michaels' big comeback at SummerSlam 2002 -- which also included Rock vs. Brock, and was during a much hotter period in wrestling -- did 540k buys. That's still a lot.

    You really think it was *Michaels* who brought all the buys to SummerSlam 2005? Even Scott Steiner math can't prove that.

  139. Man I wouldn't hate a review of that shoot about WWE developmental. I have a feeling we only heard the tip of the iceberg about DeMott.

  140. I really like Big Show's explanation of his SS heel turn and Rowan confronting him.

    Show was just so awesomely dismissive like "Really? You're coming out? Is this a joke?"

    Just awesome nuanced heel work from Show in that promo and confrontation, even if the resulting match was outright horrible.

    Fair assessment.


    PUT THAT CIGARETTE OUT!

  149. It's rare to see Big Show's turns get an explanation at all, so yes.

    ReplyDelete
  150. Well, we got plenty of them, actually.

    Yeah, that was great. I miss Gene.

    ReplyDelete
  154. The promo went a ways to explaining the nonsensical ones with his characterization too.

    He's a completely self-preserving pussy. Almost every turn can be explained by that line of logic.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Big Show destroyed him in every match. No wonder the guy didn't get over.

    Well, he sucks, too but that's besides the point.

    ReplyDelete
  156. secondwhitelineMay 4, 2015 at 8:36 AM

    You know, the shame is that Show's one of the guys who's good enough on the mic to actually explain his actions well. If they hadn't spent years using him as a filler dude, turns from him might've meant something.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Yeah, I don't care about Rowan not being protected.

    Erick Rowan is a stupid hill to die on.

    ReplyDelete
  158. secondwhitelineMay 4, 2015 at 8:37 AM

    WWE logic: This guy's limited, but he's working in the role we've found for him. Cut him loose and see if he can survive!

    ReplyDelete
  159. If he'd been a regular size guy he'd probably be one of the greatest ever.

    ReplyDelete
  160. That was a nice little interview about the Dungeon. One thing that brings tears to my eyes about Bret is the genuine love for the art of wrestling and how to properly do things, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  161. Guess I will do that. But the whole process is frustrating. Their billing department is incompetent.

    ReplyDelete
  162. I've come to the conclusion that Tootsie is the perfect 80s feel-good movie.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Don't care about Rowan but the treatment of Harper is fucked up. The guy is a VERY talented big man and he's a jobbing machine. If his problem is the gimmick and look, they can change that and make him a more viable character.

    ReplyDelete
  164. secondwhitelineMay 4, 2015 at 8:42 AM

    Seriously, it's weird: because of his size, they throw him into whatever role they need at the moment, but his skillset allows for much more than that. But when has a perfectly-executed turn by a giant ever led to one of the largest wrestling events in history, anyway?

    Wow, that Wyatt split sure paid off, huh?

    I wish they had a live weekly call-in show on the Network where Vince, HHH and Steph have to explain and defend their decisions to angry fans.

  166. I've heard some people say they showed it to their kids in order of 4, 5,1,2,3,6. My preferred way is Despecialized Edition 4,5,6 and forget the Prequels ever happened.

    It would have been better than Rude/Boss Man

    ReplyDelete
  168. Part of the problem is he's a little too viable, I think.

    He's so good at giving off the crazy vibe that he looks threatening no matter how much he loses or disappears.

  176. I don't think I'd mind a Show-Ryback feud.

    I like the idea of The Ryback against someone who's not only bigger than him but smarter than him too.

We have an audit team coming to my office tomorrow, so they're having me and some other employees come in on a day we normally would work from home while having others who wouldn't be as good at answering questions stay home.

  183. "My preferred way is Despecialized Edition 4,5,6 and forget the Prequels ever happened."

    Agreed. I have also heard there was a fourth Indiana Jones movie and a third Godfather movie, but of course those rumors can't be true.

    ReplyDelete
  184. Yeah, I always thought Vader was "playing it safe" with Obi-Wan the second time since he had his shit fucked up once already. And Obi-Wan was pretty much set on sacrificing himself so he could train Luke.

    Boss Man is one of my favorites, but the match sucked

    ReplyDelete
  186. It's funny, but I usually didn't have much problem understanding what Ahmed was saying, although I can certainly understand why most people would. And I grew up in a little town in Alberta, so it's not like I was hearing a whole lot of ebonics while growing up.

    And yet I can rarely understand what a crowd of people are chanting at games or wrestling events. Something about a multitude of voices creating a muffled sound. Strange things, ears.

    ReplyDelete
  187. "We're telling stories" -- the answer to every single one of those questions

    ReplyDelete
  188. Damn it, I made the same joke above.

    ReplyDelete
  189. Put. The. Wyatt. Family. Back. Together.


    They work as a unit. How the Hell is Bray Wyatt a thing when his entire gimmick of 'cult leader' only works if he HAS A GODDAMN CULT? Like even from a writing perspective, if he has a three team unit then he can avoid his opponents until a PPV as they go through Harper/Rowan to get to Bray.

    ReplyDelete

  193. I choose instead to focus on the Hogan/Bubba superplex from the top of the cage.

    ReplyDelete
  194. Yup. My bank card was compromised, so I was sent a new one. I forgot to change the billing source to the new card. WWE Network, understandably, cancelled my account. But, you can't simply go in to your account to change stuff. You actually have to SIGN UP ALL OVER AGAIN, like new, and you don't even get the "free month". They don't even acknowledge that the old card ever existed.
