They've already built him as a main eventer.
Bryan? Oh hell no. This is the Punk thing all over again. What happened is he got a catchphrase, and a receptive audience and he accidentally got over without them planning for it. It's Austin, Punk, Rock, really just about any headliner they've had since Hogan all over again. WWE seemingly cannot pick a guy, build him up, and get the audience to love him anymore. Clearly that drives them crazy as they almost always screw these guys over in an attempt to then corral them and try to say "look what we made!" after the fact. From what I hear tomorrow could be another prime example...
They should have moved him slightly down the matchcard so that they could build up a long, heated story angle that involves more time with them talking about how they grew up together, because honestly? They could have saved this feud up for one of the best feuds of all time, and had the match at Wrestlemania.
I will not disagree with that whatsoever. I absolutely hate how this company cannot recognize a marquee feud anymore and how much they just throw out there either for free, or on PPV's that they have to know won't draw flies. This is only going to get worse when Nitro...er uh...I mean RAW, goes to 3 hours in July.
Daniel Bryan isn't winning this match and it's clear.
Well...it was until some of the stuff I heard earlier this week, which shit do I disagree with. Bryan shouldn't win here unless there's a butt ton of interference, and even then, it should not be a win. I'm not normally a fan of doing fucky finishes when the audience pays, but in this case? MAKE THE FINISH AS FUCKY AS FUCK AND UNCLEAR AS YOU CAN WWE!!! This is something that I cannot agree with MudKips more that needs to be saved for later, and you know, if you keep teasing this feud out, but not giving clear finishes, you can come back at it later and use that as fodder for the eventual big money match.
Yes to the having a good match, but again it could have been saved up for such a better time than this show. You're right, the show shouldn't even happen, it's pretty much a waste and I highly doubt that any titles will change except maybe the tag titles.
Again, not what I'm hearing, and good God is that a mistake. Shit I don't even see the tag titles changing here, though they probably should. Ziggler and Swagger need SOMETHING...but at this point I fear they're just jobbers and yearly place holder challengers on shows where the world titles aren't expected to draw (and the world titles not being expected to draw is a completely other kettle of fish that'll drive my blood pressure through the roof.
It really doesn't. I wouldn't be surprised if they had one show on mondays named "WWE Universe". Then again, having two shows makes them so much more money, but we all know that the separation between them is completely fake and surreal. And Punk/Bryan needs to be built up better. Period. That was a dreadful 3 weeks of anticipation. Dreadful.
Agreed, this show is being phoned in and it always begs the question to me "if you don't give a fuck, why should I?" especially with a 45 dollar price tag. You hit the nail on the head though...those television rights are what makes WWE the most money these days. TNA too.
I used to think that this may have been one of the best ways to get Cena over with the fans so far.
Nah, I don't see it. They had a much better opportunity last year with his feud with Punk, or even with the Rock feud. Until they let John Cena grow all the way up and Cena becomes a better actor...he's fucked.
Make John Laurinaitis' guts be hated for a while, make the most obnoxious promo with him firing Big Show where everyone literally wants him killed, make Cena play hero and beat down Johnny Ace with words and, soon to come, beatdowns at OTL where Cena is the reason for Laurinaitis finally being out.
No, the Show thing was horrid. They emasculated Show to build a character with X-Pac heat...WITH X-PAC HEAT!!! Worse? This is supposedly leading to a Show heel turn. So you aren't getting a fired Laryngitis tomorrow. You're most likely getting show running in and this best case becoming Nickolai Volkoff and Ted Dibiase at the start of the Million Dollar Corporation...and worst? Show will willingly sniff Johnny's ass and become his best butt buddy even though he got fired.
But really? I wouldn't be surprised if Brock Lesnar interfered and helped Johnny Ace win just to shock the fans for what we were almost sure was going to be the end of him.
Possible Lesnar could...but I don't see them wasting a date for Lesnar that way...I see him reintroduced in another couple weeks or so. I think this will introduce the newly heel Big Show personally.
After Smackdown and Punk talking about the "parties" that they were going to throw, I have a feeling that WWE will surprise all of the gullible women and stupid kids.
Oh yes, Laryngitis is all over certain lineups, and is advertised for No Way Out which takes place here in Jersey,
I said it before that youre right, they shouldn't have it, kind of like capitol punishm-actually, never mind. NOTHING is as bad as Capitol Punishment. That was a throw-away PPV. This is more of like an enhancement PPV to build up the guys they want and put the other guys in their rightful places.
The problem is they should never have such PPV's. Not with the PPV business flagging, and the price tags being as high as they are. Also it's not like they can claim the DVD releases help justify the loss...because they don't. They've fucked their business with this attitude and still won't see reason and fix it.
Yeah, looks like Sheamus stole Orton's superpowers over the last 7-8 months. This just might cement Sheamus' position as the top dog, unfortunately.
I don't see it as unfortunate at all. Sheamus is talented, looks good in the spot, and isn't injury prone. Unfortunately even though Orton has finally come into his own, he just cannot stay healthy and eventually WWE has to cut bait and move on.
...Well said, my friend
Just so long as it's understood it's not personal for me...I may make it sound that way sometimes...especially if I've been drinking, like tonight...but I'm just passionate about wrestling, I want it to be exquisite always...and lazy, shitty, business destroying booking, ideas, or talent, should never be celebrated or applauded in my mind.
