It's Monday at 7:10. I just got home from work I'm sitting down to eat dinner and I'm absolutely dreading watching Raw. It's just three hours of the same stuff that goes on every week. It's definitely had some high points in the last few weeks such as the shield and Daniel Bryan But the format is just so stale. They need to something different. Maybe different announcers for the first hour. Something different. Anything. What would you do?
Rip off Aces and Eights but with bigger names, because they literally have a dozen people sitting at home with nothing for creative to do with them right now. You do a weekly unmasking of Christian, Evan Bourne, Tyson Kidd, Kassius Ohno, JTG, William Regal and a few others. Paul Heyman is the mastermind and he steals the promotion out from under Vince and HHH by tricking HHH into putting up his shares in a match, only for CM Punk to screw him and have his ultimate revenge for the lack of promised ice cream bars.
RAW should require a hourly check-in with the WWE App in order to continue watching the show.ReplyDelete
"Rip off Aces and Eights but with bigger names", maybe rip off the nWo, or start a huge heel stable would be a better way of stating it. Aces and 8's is sad and clearly reeks of Eric's motorcycle fetish.ReplyDelete
How? He's not even in the group for people to complain about.ReplyDelete
I am happy someone suggested that WWE SHOULD rip off Aces and Eight's. WWE could do it better with more guys, more production and more intrigue for who the man behind the group would be.ReplyDelete
Plus, they could probably get a endorsement deal with Chopper Bikes and get the fuys some sweet looking bikes to ride into Raw each week.
I think both companies need something, the other has too much. TNA needs some fresh young top stars like Orton or Cena and a bigger "look and feel", while the WWE needs more big stables and long term stories and more edgy angles.ReplyDelete
Threadjacking - anyone see Rob Zombie's Lords of Salem? I can find it to download but it hasn't been in theaters here and I can't find a blu-ray. How's it online but not released yet?ReplyDelete
Back on topic - Raw needs chaos. The nWo showed up when they felt like it and did what they wanted. Chaos. When Raw turned into Raw is War everyone was running around doing and saying what they wanted. Chaos. Now? No such chaos. Everyone does what they're supposed to do when they're supposed to do it for the exact amount of time they're supposed to be doing it.
Is that you Bill Gates?ReplyDelete
There are a few things that completely took me out of the mood. Go ahead and watch it and i'd be happy to discuss with you if you want.ReplyDelete
A kind of Aces and Eights could be great but I think they shouldn't copy the biker gimmick 1:1.ReplyDelete
The Shield is doing nothing since months, so why not bring fresh air into it? Have some masked guys help them and then they could unmask them.
And don't forget, that Paul Heyman was already kind of associated with the shield, when they made their debut...
WWE hates stables. TNA loves them. That's just the way it is.ReplyDelete
Orlando Jordan can head up the group...they can be the Queens and Jacks.ReplyDelete
It's such a good idea with direction, intrigue and a cool pay off it will never happen.ReplyDelete
They only love stables when Triple H is the leader.ReplyDelete
is jtg really bigger than knux or doc at this point. i bet most people dont know who he is.ReplyDelete
i wonder what the wwe universes memory is these days. will they remember evan bourne?
How much would Vince have to pay Shane to get him to come on board for this?ReplyDelete
I miss Shane. He could fit the bill.ReplyDelete
Since you brought it up.ReplyDelete
I agree, I also don't think Helena Bonham Carter is attractive, or a good actress.
Not to mention that it was pretty much kicked off by the Hart Dynasty and, to a lesser extent, the NoD v.2 featuring Rocky.ReplyDelete
Was NWO vs. 2 The Nexus? Maybe they could try to not mess it up this time?ReplyDelete
She was pretty awesome in House of 1000 Corpses and Devil's Rejects though. She does crazy well.ReplyDelete
Yes, but at least they can always team him up with Christian as the Bourne Again Christians.ReplyDelete
I don't mean to come off like a jerk but...if your e-mail starts with " I just got home from work I'm sitting down to eat dinner and I'm absolutely dreading watching Raw."ReplyDelete
then why bother watching the whole show?Just catch the highlights via DVR. That's what I've been doing for awhile and it's actually quite nice.
Yeah that was a really weird rant, where the wrestlers Scott listed are barely above midcard status. Christian is probably the biggest name there and even then Bully Ray is probably a slightly bigger name than Christian.ReplyDelete
I always hated nWo/Aces and Eights type stables, I always preferred the Horsemen type format where you have a main eventer, an upper midcarder ready to break as a main eventer and a dominant tag team.
They should rip off the Freebirds/Devastation Inc. angle from years ago, where DI invaded the UWF, got people to join them, and then destroyed the Freebirds, who were the "bad gang" on the block. Then the Fruitbirds (sorry, Flair coined that term) come back and lead the fed against the invaders.ReplyDelete
You can do that with the Wyatts against the Shield, and add new members of the Wyatts by placing masks over various jobbers. Sure, Zack Ryder was planted and performing his own version of jobber-synthesis the other night on RAW, but put a mask on him and all of a sudden he's a hoss.
Last night, Raw was about to start and with no Yankees game on to watch instead, my girlfriend went to change the channel to USA. I told her not to worry about it and we watched some episodes of The Wire on DVD instead. Much better use of evening TV time. I started fast forwarding through Raw this morning.
She's a Butter Face.ReplyDelete
Agreed. However, don't ask her to carry a movie with gravitas which is what they tried in this one.ReplyDelete
I thought they met on the set of Temple of Doom...look it up, pretty sure about that.ReplyDelete
AAAAND THE NEW, W-W-E CHAMPION, MISTERRRRRRR MCMAHON!ReplyDelete
Ok. So how about this? Have an NWO thing. I like the idea of Punk being the lead guy, but you can also have Christian and Kidd and a few others. Throw Brock in for good measure and you have it be led by Shane.ReplyDelete
Story being that Shane is still pissed at being pushed out of his own family's company and that HHH was in his spot, despite everything Shane did for his father. So he's come home to take what is rightfully his.
Just. All factions. Not just Heels and Faces. Why can't we have like four factions? Go all game of thrones on everyone. The Shield, The Wyatts, The Heyman guys, Shane's faction of paid guys. Plus Cena's faction. Make him the loyal WWE guy and have him get a few other loyal people.
Would that work?
Can't go wrong with The Wire.ReplyDelete
VINCE WILL INJECTION WWE WITH A LETHAL DOSE OF POISON!!! IF ANYONE IS GONNA KILL HIS CREATION ITS GONNA BE HIM!!!ReplyDelete
I got the complete series set for Christmas this year and I'm finally getting around to watching it. It's such an excellent show.ReplyDelete
That is correct actually, my mistake.ReplyDelete
Regardless, I constantly cite her as the reason why Temple of Doom is in fact the worse Indy movie of the four.
Yeah I understand you love wrestling, but why force yourself to do something you don't really want to do. You spent the whole day working, so why force yourself into burning three hours on something you don't enjoy?ReplyDelete
NOD was arguably the first of the Attitude Era.ReplyDelete
Yes, but they were more a midcard stable and never had the big main event star like HBK or Undertaker. When the Rock was the new champion, he switched to the Corporation.ReplyDelete
You make a good point. You're right.ReplyDelete
I'd watch Raw with Paul Heyman controlling the WWE and CM PUNK being the WWE Champ and all that.ReplyDelete
But until then, I'm sticking with my AJPW from the 90's and WCW.
Nobody loves stables like ROH though. In their history I don't think they've ever not had at least one stable.ReplyDelete
The complete series is stupid-cheap on Amazon right now, if anyone's thinking of taking the plunge. Like 60% off. Well worth it if you don't already have access to HBO GO. And it'll probably never see Blu-ray for various reasons, so don't let DVD hold you back.ReplyDelete
Were they before the Hart Foundation? I legit can't remember.ReplyDelete
Farooq was never a star, but he was definitely main event during most of the Nation's first run. He was feuding with Bret and Taker in 97.ReplyDelete
They need to rip off the Corporation. HHH has worked worked better as a heel anyway. HHH as Vince, the Outlaws as the stooges, and while Cena in the Rock role would be perfect, that'd never happen. Punk selling out and wearing suits isn't a bad second option.ReplyDelete
Outlaws? New talent please. Otherwise, I concur.ReplyDelete
Agreed. I honestly don't care how many hours the show is, since the advent of DVR. The show can be as long/short as you want and I'm perfectly fine checking out only the 30 minutes of good stuffReplyDelete
This. Get fucking Netflix and move on with your life. No one is gonna chain you to a chair and make you watch Raw.ReplyDelete
The Outlaws are perfect as the stooges. If anyone can recreate that Patterson and Brisco magic, it's them.ReplyDelete
Yeah, I would agree. If they are just comic-relief types, it would work just fine.ReplyDelete
I dread watching Impact, so I don't.ReplyDelete
Touché.;-) But for me Faarooq had lost, when he debuted with this stupid gladiator gimmick. Although I knew he was former WCW Champion Ron Simmons.ReplyDelete
