Wyatt Family in Line for a Huge Push?
The stable is a HHH project right now and many believe that they being groomed to take over the spot that The Shield hold. Apparently, there is talk between those in the company of moving The Shield down the card due to injuring the Undertaker and their confrontation with Randy Orton backstage at a house show.

Taryn Terrell is Pregnant
This is why Taryn has not been seen on TV lately. She was in line to win the Knockouts Title at Bound for Glory.

DDP to be Featured on HBO "Real Sports" on August 20th.
He will be profiled by Frank DeFord and will also feature Jake Roberts and Scott Hall.
Haha, Meltzer is going to stick with his Shield story until they finally are shunted down the card and he can be say, see, I told you!ReplyDelete
Sources indicate the Shield will job to Zack Ryder in a 3 on 1 handicap match because Seth Rollins farted backstage, stealing Natalya's gimmick.ReplyDelete
Great. Not saying it to sound fucked up but she was a decent in the ring. Now she won't be around and we'll be stuck with Velvet Sky matches again.ReplyDelete
Stop downvoting me, Velvet.ReplyDelete
You too, Sabin.ReplyDelete
"This is why Taryn has not been seen on TV lately. She was in line to win the Knockouts Title at Bound for Glory."ReplyDelete
So who's the father of the baby? I mean, I'm sure Drew is afraid to come back into the house still.ReplyDelete
I did it too! Groupthink!ReplyDelete
I'm ok with the Wyatt Family coming up, but wouldn't feuding with the shield make the most sense? Even if the Wyatts prevailed. I mean. It doesn't make a lot of sense.ReplyDelete
He must've been choked when they closed the show the other week, standing tall.ReplyDelete
I remember when the Shield would never the be the same, and then beat the shit out of Mark Henry that night.ReplyDelete
Consistently shocked Orton has any kind of pull. He's a whiny little douche who's at times as sloppy as the people he shows up in the ring. A jackass in interviews with a sense of self entitlement that boggles the mind for an awol dickhead. And he's been on cruise control for years now whether not happy about his push, his face/heel status, waiting for a third strike or whatever. It's a shame Taker/JBL aren't locker room regulars any more. I'd imagine Orton'd have his share of soapy shower fun time, third gen or not.ReplyDelete
kharma has to leave upon a hot debuteReplyDelete
taryn not gonna win the title at bfg
silly womens! when will you ever learn?
I'm happy for DDP. I hope that's a positive piece and others can be inspired by what he's been able to do.ReplyDelete
Uh what confrontation?ReplyDelete
Unintended consequences of stopping him from shitting in bags.ReplyDelete
I loathe Orton, LOATHE him. BUT he's apparently liked by Triple H, he's third generation, he's got a good look, and he consistently draws a pop. If he didn't have two strikes I can't imagine the kind of push he'd be getting right now. I went to see Raw live in Richmond in June and the most over guy there was Daniel Bryan followed closely by Randy Orton.ReplyDelete
I've been cautious about getting behind DDP because so far Jake and Hall have not had to stay clean out Page's place but after listening to Hall on Austin's podcast I'm a little more optimistic.ReplyDelete
Wyatt's vs. Shield going all Freebirds vs. Von Erichs, Nation vs. DX, or Horsemen vs. Dungeon of Doom...I know that would put me in a high-fiving mood. Who's with me? (Holds up palm)ReplyDelete
Lol meltzer. Here is the plan! Unless something else happens! Then they changed their minds! But I'm definitely not wrong!ReplyDelete
Apparently there was a blown spot at a live show and Reigns confronted Orton backstage and they got into an argument. It's been said Rollins tried to keep Reigns from doing it as it would rub people the wrong way. I don't see why the entire Shield would get punished instead of just Reigns but there you go.ReplyDelete
Can't leave a brother hanging. The idea of Ambrose and Wyatt doing a promo against each other gives me goosebumps.ReplyDelete
Weasel words FTW!ReplyDelete
Even WWE marks on Twitter were calling for Wyatt's vs Shield when they debuted. I expect it to happen at some point. Probably over the tag belts.ReplyDelete
Darren Young should make you feel a little less cautious.ReplyDelete
I would say that The Undertaker is responsible for his own injuries at this point, what with the whole being a giant 48-year-old with a rich injury history who still comes back and agrees to bump in at least one spot heavy match each year. How can you ask someone to powerpomb him through a table and then get mad when he's not totally okay afterward?ReplyDelete
What else can they be but shunted down the card? Unless they started feuding for the WHC or WWE title they had nowhere to go but down.ReplyDelete
Exactly my point.ReplyDelete
To paraphrase Happy Gilmore: "But he's an old man. I mean, look at him. He's old. You can't just expect him to get powerbombed through a table and not get hurt. He's too old"ReplyDelete
I don't get it?ReplyDelete
Taryn is (was?) turning into a good wrestler for sure. Her matches with Gail were quite good.ReplyDelete
Ok can someone explain the whole JBL/Shower/Hazing thing to me. What exactly happened?ReplyDelete
What a wonderful sport we follow! Stand up for yourself and get punished.ReplyDelete
Didn't Orton get Kennedy fired for messing up a spot? Didn't Kofi get de-pushed after missing a spot with Orton. So it's OK for Orton to confront people (and fire people) about it, but how dare a lowly rookie do the same!? Btw, you don't fuck with the Samoans--ever.ReplyDelete
rip laurie formanReplyDelete
cant say i'm surprised
JBL was very well known in the late 90's through 07 for being the locker room bully/hazer for rookies. There are known cases of him doing rather odd things to new guys (such as attempting to shower a new WWF wrestler to see if they complain/break or just flat out being a school yard bully, slapping people, stiffing guys, or running his mouth). He really was a dick then.ReplyDelete
The only way you could be any more of a troll would be to make your posts from under a bridge.ReplyDelete
There are MYRIAD reasons to have fired Ken Anderson. But yeah, the WWE is weird and inconsistent about that stuff.ReplyDelete
Orton's a guy who I have zero respect or admiration for in any regard. I think he's a mediocre-at-best wrestler, he has never made anyone else look good, he's a C- on the mic, and he might be the worst top guy ever at improvising or dealing with adversity in a match (see his "STUPID! STUPID! STUPID!" breakdown or having to ask Sheamus for his line earlier this year). He got over after having been pushed relentlessly for over five years despite being injury-prone and having two strikes.
That's why you always gotta wear a bag.ReplyDelete
Thank you. This is why I cannot understand why ending the streak would be even kayfabe a big deal at this point. The guy is basically one bad bump away from being crippled. How is it at all impressive to beat him when he's at the last ebbs of his career?ReplyDelete
I would say that WWE fired Kennedy for a bunch of reasons, the last of which was him blowing a big spot in a Raw match against Orton and nearly breaking his neck.ReplyDelete
AND a hypocrite when you consider the grudge he held against Tully Blanchard for hazing him.ReplyDelete
Because you do something no one had ever done. It's the same reason a win over Andre was a big deal even when he could barely move. Plus, Taker can still bring it for one match a year.ReplyDelete
Please stop trolling me.ReplyDelete
Fair enough. I actually don't think hazing is THAT terrible a thing but the shower stuff is just creepy and weird.ReplyDelete
Which one? There were two remember?ReplyDelete
Who the hell could Tully Blanchard haze? He had the build of a middle school history teacher.ReplyDelete
lisa robin kellyReplyDelete
In fairness to trolls I really thought that The Troll Twins of Underbridge Academy had real promise. Keep doing your thing Dougie!ReplyDelete
Isn't that what you said when you predicted the Miz wrestling Taker at Wrestlemania and Lesnar at Summerslam?ReplyDelete
And you're still missing the point.ReplyDelete
The point being that you're a hypocrite and a troll?ReplyDelete
JBL talked about it and even went at Tully hard in '06 when Tully came in as an agent.ReplyDelete
Some of it is okay, but a lot of the crap that goes on is excessive and unprofessional.ReplyDelete
I don't have to explain my art to you.ReplyDelete
When will these women learn to just keep it in their pants???ReplyDelete
Can't believe you wasted a chance to bust out a line from Basic Thuganomics...ReplyDelete
If this is what you call art then your mother is never getting you out of her basement.ReplyDelete
The guy who played the network executive on smackdown (palmer cannon?) allegedly raped--some girl so jbl faux shower raped him as punishmentReplyDelete
Do you understand that Dave Meltzer established himself as the most knowledgeable wrestling insider by reporting on wrestling when no one else would for over *30* years? He doesn't get everything right, just like the beat reporter for your favorite sports team (I'm guessing it's a WNBA team?) and for the exact same reason -- there's a lot the people in charge don't want EVERYONE to know. You are knocking the guy like he's some punk behind a messge board, but the reality is he has an established network of contacts in the business, people in the WWE (and every major promotion of the last, again, *30* years) read and react to what he writes.ReplyDelete
Taryn reminded me of Trish Stratus, the super hot diva that surprised everyone by how quickly she picked up wrestling.ReplyDelete
And another shot to TNA as they lose like 25% of the KO division.
She better. I'm running out of Cheetos!ReplyDelete
Wrestling etiqutte is odd to me. Old man who could turn to dust at any time agrees to take big bump. He gets hurt. Wrestlers that give the bump get in trouble. Would be like if he did the suicide dive he teased at WM into Punk and got hurt, and Punk was blamed for it.ReplyDelete
Yeah, and Edge wrote about his own JBL soaping experience in his book, too.ReplyDelete
I do think its time to break up Shield as they've run their course as a team, but fuck Orton so hard. Anderson had a bunch of other reasons, and Kofi was being tested to see if he could hang. But The Shield had a lot of time and effort put into getting them over, and they have a huge upside and are the future of the business. Orton is a past-his-prime whineass. Seriously, unless Orton is personally gifting millions of people PPVs, why the fuck should what he thinks backstage have anything to do with what we see on TV? Who fucking cares what that orange leech thinks, if the guyE make for good TV? Fuck him. Taker too, he's too goddamn broken down for those kinda bumps and he should know it.ReplyDelete
I really hope whatever number 2 company supplants TNA can give at least some hope for talented guys that aren't gonna do much in WWE, because I hate when good wrestlers ride the pine for years just because there isn't room for them in WWE and they didn't kiss the right asses.
"The stable is a HHH project right now and many believe that they being groomed to take over the spot that The Shield hold."ReplyDelete
Oh, I'm afraid The Shield will be quite operational when your friends arrive.
Yeah, that was the most baffling part of that news item. Taker is pretty much injured all the time (it's not a knock on him, he's just put his huge body in harm's way for a couple of decades and this is what happens) and is hardly a guarantee to make the Mania appearances coming into this year. I didn't even know this was an issue with The Shield until today.ReplyDelete
I'm *highly* in favor of more Wyatt family on my TV until I get tired of them. Which, you know, is pretty much the case for anything on my TV. Frankly, I've never been particularly entertained by The Shield. I don't hate 'em, but I don't exactly look forward to their appearances.ReplyDelete
The Wyatts, on the other hand...I pay the fuck attention, and right now, that's entirely because of Bray. I understand I have yet to see him wrestle a single match, and a lot of how well he stays over (because I think he's already there) will depend on his match at SS.
Oh, and btw, does he remind anyone else of DeNiro's character in Cape Fear (1991)?
You mean...it's all a trap?ReplyDelete
Damn you. Damn you, sir.
Pretty sure that Max Cady (with shades of Jim Jones and Deliverance thrown in) is the template for Wyatt.ReplyDelete
Disagree with the Shield, though. Their entrance into the company was badass, but the writers forgot to write Chapter 2 of their angle/gimmick. They still manage to have exciting matches every time out. I have never been bored by a Shield match, which is pretty impressive 9 months in.
Brock Lesnar has a grandson!?
The timing doesn't make sense. Why did they all win titles just a few weeks after Ambrose supposedly injured Taker?ReplyDelete
Step 1 = killer entrance.ReplyDelete
Step 2 = ?
Step 3 = Profit!
I find no particular fault with them - aside from still really understanding how it is they're about justice, or how exactly they define it. I just don't find them all that entertaining. Ain't saying they suck; far from it. 3MB is a good example of something that sucks. Nothing against those guys in particular; I just think it's a bad gimmick.
So far the Wyatt Family's video vignettes have been WAY more entertaining than their actual work in front of people. Obviously it's early and who knows how good they can become, but right now I wonder if the Wyatt Family is an idea that just translates better to a TV drama (with the benefit of editing, music, scenery, etc.) than to a live-action wrestling show.ReplyDelete
Bray Wyatt = Ultimate WarriorReplyDelete
All sizzle, no steak.
For injuring the Undertaker? Are you kiidding? The same Undertaker who is touted for his tough guy, no nonsense, earn your way bullshit mythology as lockeroom leader? The guy is old, out of shape, and works a couple times a year, but its the Shield's fault when he gets banged up?ReplyDelete
Indeed. Fuck Orton. The same dude who has had a disproportionate push since day one nd multiple "second chances"?ReplyDelete
Step-grandson, Sable's daughter from her first husband had a kid.ReplyDelete
Reminds me of Waylon Mercy.ReplyDelete
The justice thing was totally fine when it was just a bullshit excuse to help Punk. It was heels lying (when they were obviously in cahoots with Punk), and that works fine. Then it stopped making sense when they were exposed as having been paid off by Heyman, because they continued talking about justice.ReplyDelete
At that point, they should've dropped the justice stuff and just formed a stable under Punk. Or at least said that justice IS aiding Punk, and pledged themselves to him. They could've chalked it up to being inspired by The Pipebomb. Then when Punk loses to Rock, Cena, and Taker, they turf him at Heyman's request; thus explaining Punk's break. Punk returns, and runs through the Shield on his way to Brock.
Complete random and selfish threadjack...I just dropped my iphone and it broke. Ive had iphones since generation 1 but am thinking about going with a galaxy. Any opinions or suggestion from the technical ppl?ReplyDelete
I really love my Verizon droid RAZR but my gf has a Samsung Galaxy and it makes my (legit cool) phone look like shit. Get itReplyDelete
The shield is fucking awesome. Ambrose cuts THE BEST promos in the world (sorry cm punk) and they've already had enough awesome matches to fill the first disc on a DVD set. Plus they are super over and have been pushed and protected more than any dude(s) debuting since kane (which is why I doubt these shield might get punished stories)ReplyDelete
The Wyatt family is a big fat heel tag team and a guy with gimmick that can't translate in the ring. I don't get it. Why would hhh push 3 fatsos over the biggest young star in 10 years, a giant good looking Samoan and a work rate stud like Rollins?
Thanks, that seems to be the consensus between ppl Ive askedReplyDelete
Rumour is that the Shield have heat with Vince.ReplyDelete
I just got a Galaxy S 4 about 3 weeks ago and love it. Incredible screen, super-fast processor, lots of system improvements and a great camera. More than happy with my decision to go with it over the iPhone 5.ReplyDelete
I thought hat was Duke "The Dumpster" Droese.ReplyDelete
That all works for me.ReplyDelete
I have a dollar that says Reigns would have legit fucked Orton up if it came to it.ReplyDelete
My thoughts exactly.ReplyDelete
you can say the same thing to the guys too #itTakesTwoToTangoReplyDelete
*resisting urge to post .gif*ReplyDelete
Orton is the common denominator in so many issues.ReplyDelete
I hope someone takes a dump in his urn... once he's dead, of course.
(He's making stuff up)ReplyDelete
I know, right? These guys are supposed to concentrate, and these women walk past with no more than five articles of clothing!ReplyDelete
Randy Orton match:ReplyDelete
Super-contrived draping DDT
No one has ever beaten a geriatric athlete on his last legs in the sport? I ain't seeing it. =)ReplyDelete
I want a RAZR RAMN.ReplyDelete
Supposedly Blanchard hazed JBL when JBL was starting out. When Blanchard came in as a road agent He and JBL had some kind of confrontation and Blanchard quit. JBL has publicly called Tully a drug addict, cheater, liar, and hypocrite who used God to make money.ReplyDelete
Aw, once you figure out object permanence you'll be able to figure out that people who know something you don't aren't making it up. It'll be alright, muffin.ReplyDelete
OMG Darren Young, it's too soon!!!!ReplyDelete
Oh, that's why you prefaced a "fact" with "supposedly"? Keep it up, sweetie.ReplyDelete
I heard that while CM Punk is straightedge, he did snort Paul Bearer's ashes while listening to Rick Springfield. Also, Yoshi Tatsu was setting off firecrackers.ReplyDelete
That was clearly for pleasure.ReplyDelete
He likes peckahsReplyDelete
Absolutely. I would have been great with Punk working his way through Rollins, Reigns, and Ambrose en route to Brock.ReplyDelete
That's funny- I've been watching RAW for 2 months now and I don't remember a single promo they've cut. Meanwhile, the Wyatts have style for days, but appear to just be regular shitty brawlers.ReplyDelete
I just got a simple $100 phone at walmart with that $50 a month plan. It's a Huawei thing, or whatever, but it's great. Honestly, the camera on it is as great as any digital camera I've seen, and it runs programs just fine and all that jazz. I wouldn't see the need to get anything more expensive.ReplyDelete
Glad i'm not the only one who think the Wyatts are the drizzling shits.ReplyDelete
"THE BUZZARDS THE BUZZARDS" It's so different! Fuck offf
It depends on whether or not you have a long-term contract or not. With a contract, you can get subsidized phones through your carrier. Without one, you pay full price but have much lower monthly fees. In my case, the math always works out that being off-contract is a better deal, and especially because I have a Nexus 4 which is about half the price of similar phones when buying them at full price. If I were on contract and could consider the more expensive phones, I think I'd go with the HTC One based on reviews I've read.ReplyDelete
Totally agree, those two matches with Gail were probably the best mainstream female matches this year. Now we're stuck with the useless Velvet and the horrid ODB. They really need to harvest Shimmer, Shine and other indy places for new girls to feud with the always smoking hot Mickie James and Gail Kim. Bring in MsChif, Portia Perez, Nicole Matthews, Mercedes Martinez, LuFisto, etc.ReplyDelete
It was me Drew, it was me all along!ReplyDelete
Pretty damn much, I think we saw 75% of the KO division last night (ODB, MJ and Gail). The only one missing was the useless Velvet Sky. Which leads to the question of what the hell happened to Tessmacher? Is she even still with the company or did she go back to Hooters where she probably makes more money?ReplyDelete
I've got the new LG Optimus L5 phone and have had no issues so far. Only had it for a month, but I like it. Takes some serious getting used to a touch screen, and such a small phone. Last phone I had looked like the old Zack Morris style.ReplyDelete
I really dig Bray's in-ring style. I don't care about the other guys.ReplyDelete
