Women's wrestling really died about 50 years ago or so...it's just have brief flashes of having somewhat of a place on shows, but in terms of actually being a draw or something that well and truly matters? No, 50 years or so at best. That's not to say there weren't some great talents since...just that it sadly wasn't their ability that was keeping any interest.

This hurts to read. She couldn't even run the ropes correctly, which is one of the first things you should learn to do.

They should just take it down altogether. Divas and sex appeal have no place on a PG show, which offers an entirely different target market. WWE is hiring models and having them have one 30 second match every now and then on raw. Its absolutely no secret to anyone that the divas division is total garbage, even the fucking 3 year olds with their immigrant parents couldnt give a fuck less about layla's title reign. She rarely was even put on television. I dont think a lot of people even knew she was champion. Thats just scary.

As for beth, wwe is not the right place for her. She should just quit, unless shes satisfied making money to fly over for.shows and sit around and do nothing.

Come on Wavepad, Kelly Kelly was not one of the good ones. As a Diva for just getting that sex appeal, yeah she did that really well, but as far as wrestling goes, she was amateur at best.

Unless we have actual wrestling nobody is gonna care about the Divas division like they did back when we had Molly Holly, Trish Stratus, Lita, Mickie James, and Melina. The women's division is garbage nowadays.

I am trying to do both. Watch any Kelly Kelly match and look for moments where she "bounces" of the ropes. She slows down an practically stops, then will just tap the ropes with her back and start running forward again. Now compare that to any other Diva or wrestler and note how they are able to do the whole movement without slowing down. It is called running the ropes and is one of the first things wrestlers learn how to do when training.

I don't entirely agree. I think they CAN have a place, I think they just don't right now because WWE is only focused on the cosmetic aspect of them, and will not get great workers in there. They have a certain "look" they want, and when they don't find that, they fire the girls. It's absolutely a shame as their are lots of pretty girls on the indies who can also work that might be able to bring something unique to the shows, but WWE is not interested whatsoever it seems.

As for beth, wwe is not the right place for her. She should just quit, unless shes satisfied making money to fly over for.shows and sit around and do nothing.

Funny you mention that...lol

her talents are worth more than the WWE's diva division. TNA would even do a better job with her.

Before I try to make up for roughly 2 weeks of commentary, I thought I get the backlog of responding out of the way:

At 9/14/12 06:18 AM, MattTheParanoidKat wrote: NO MORE SHITTING ON COLE FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR!

Indeed. While Friday showed us he's still a tweener, he's toned down a great deal. Hell, even before Lawler's emergency, he was being toned down; it's just that Real Life Writes The Plot sped up the process a tad.

Also, he called a Sidewalk Slam correctly! Progress!

I didn't notice. I think either him or JBL actually called a Scoop Slam correctly, too........somebody did, anyway.......

And yeah, very srs and horrible thing that happened to King, glad he's doing alright. IMHO his commentary hasn't been good lately, but yeah, he's Jerry Lawler.

While his jokes have gotten stale, the fact that he put on a good match when he's ONLY TWO YEARS YOUNGER THAN VINCE (which I didn't know until this happened) is more than enough to earn my respect.

I did laugh at his "having more wires in him than AT&T" comment. :P Eeeeeehhhhhh..........

To be honest I think I'm over the whole "face" and "heel" commentator dynamic, or if you HAVE to do it, it should be the color guy that's the heel. The over the top way Cole has played his character, which really harkens back to attempts to turn JR meeting with basically the same result destroys any credibility he has as a play by play guy. If play by play guys MUST be characters, they need to be babyfaces so as to act as presumable audience avatars, and a voice of reason within the chaos or dastardly acts that sometimes happen in wrestling.

WWE should take this opportunity to "reset" Michael Cole back to the face commentator he used to be...he wasn't always good, but he wasn't as consistently crap and distracting as he has been the last couple years.

Agreed. He was forced to say/do some really stupid shit, but he's great at play-by-play - barring the running NAME THAT SLAM gag.

WWE should've learned that X-Pac Heat is a BAD thing the FIRST time they used it......

Guys, I encourage you all to watch this video. It's amazing and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Good lord, his metabolism is more insane than Michael Phelps........ o_O It's not uncommon, however, and taking his built-like-a-brick-shithouse physique into account, I'm really not surprised. (The commentators have mentioned his eating habits a few times, actually, but I didn't know they were for real until now.)

Also, a partial explanation to his current ring name (a pun on his real one, obviously)......and now calling him Skip feels awkward.......

Yeah there was a guy (the one with his pants down low) and the other guy in the black shirt was security.

Yeah, I saw that, and I was like "The fuck was that!?", since Josh & Cole ignored it.

Never thought I'd hear of Daivari again this way. That's pretty awesome!






Now, one last thing I've been itching to share with all of ya:

A looooooooooooong time ago (I've been a part of this crew for some time now), someone - I forget who - posted an anime fanart of Sabu, surprising several members here who thought all anime was overly cartoony. I, knowing otherwise, said it depends on the artist.

What the hell does that have to with anything?

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING PIC MAY CAUSE SPONTANEOUS HEAD EXPLODING, LITERAL BRICK-SHITTING, AND INABILITY TO SAY ANYTHING OTHER THAN "HOLY CRAP!!!" FOR SEVERAL HOURS. IF PROBLEMS PERSIST FOR MORE THAN 4 HOURS, CONSULT A PHYSICIAN.

Behold.

I came across that during another days-long TVTropes detour that led me to the CM Punk Is Not Impressed meme page on Facebook, in which said pic was used for an anime variant. I nearly shit my pants in amazement at the sight of it.

True, most of the wrestler's faces look a tad similar, but the style is the important thing, here. It APPEARS to be done by an actual anime artist, but I'm not quite sure who. Either that, or that's one hell of a fanartist.

Legit, WWE should have had security all over Punk while he did that. They also need to press charges on the idiot that did it, because he actually attacked Punk, then ducked like a coward and let an innocent bystander get walloped because Punk thought the innocent guy was the dude that did it. The guilty party has been bragging on Twitter and that should absolutely be used to prosecute him. Wrestlers HAVE to defend themselves in situations like that because you simply do not know if it's going to stop at shoving and punching, or if there is an armed wacko in that crowd who will try to take you out permanently.

That was an impractically coward move to let someone else take the blunt of the blow.

Good to see their gravy train isn't going to last long.

True to that. Hopefully all ends well. As for the person who ended up taking the blunt of the blow for someone else's actions, maybe they can go watch the next show free?

Holy shit......

If anyone needed a real GTS to the face, it'd be that prick. Wow, seriously, what a fucking pussyass prick. Not only that, but poor Punk, not realizing he was kicking the wrong ass the whole time, just thinking he was defnending himself. He must be FUMING right now at this prick - and rightfully so.

WWE and the accidental victim should double-team sue the pants off this prick, and shove those Tweets up his fucking ass.

Be warned, this'll be one of the longest posts I've done in a while; so, before I begin, is there any new info on the 'Audience Prick' situation?




RAW:

FEED! HIM! GOLD!
FEED! HIM! GOLD!
FEED! HIM! GOLD!
DONE!

I don't think I've ever been more impressed at the speed with which someone has gotten over with the crowd than I have with Ryback. And last night, he was finally rewarded for it. Whether he wins or not is, frankly, moot; the shot itself - against Punk, no less, in a career-defining match type to boot - is what matters. I dunno whether it was Cena's injury that gave him the opening to shine, or if Cena and/or the higher-ups realized they had their next potential top guy & wanted to test him, or perhaps both; either way, SUNDAY NIGHT, HE DINES IN HELL........IN A CELL!

Shame Rey caught the flu; speaking from experience, you can't do SHIT when ya have it - and that's just the regular flu!

Last week, I was pleasantly shocked to see that Vince, being older than Lawler & I think only a couple months younger than my mother, could still hang in the ring. Granted, he's in better shape than Lawler is, so that probably has something to do with it, but still, it was rather impressive.

Who else has been thoroughly enjoying the, pardon the pun, hell, out of the Bryan/Kane angle? One of the actually funniest things they've done in quite a while.

It's a treat to see JR back where he belongs. I'm a little shocked that JBL stepped up, as well; he didn't have to, but he did anyway. I also have to give him credit for his mountain-climbing endeavors of late. He might be a dick, but he cares.




WWE Main Event:

First off, great theme music. ^_^

The show itself, out of an hour, gives a solid 20 minutes or so of actual wrestling, with an acceptable minimum amount of backstage stuff / promos, and the 1st match is rather long compared to most matches we get. It's a good way to spend an hour a night, really.

Regarding last week, I never thought I'd see the day when Miz & JBL would get along...... o_O




Impact:

Before I decided to start watching again, I hadn't watched it for.......about 3-4 years, I think. Apparently, in those years, 2 people in particular have surprised the hell out of me with who they are now:

The first is the guy formerly known as Abyss.......who's now playing his own brother, Joseph Park. Aaaaaand now I see why he's been wearin' a mask all those years - NO ONE would ever believe he's been a wrestler. Kinda ironic, since he'd been a Foley/Kane hybrid expy, and Mic is in a similar boat in that regard. I'm assuming he's in this role due to retirement & injury; otherwise it would seem really odd. He's playing his role well enough; it's just surprising, considering who he used to be.

The second, which I'm rather impressed by, is Eric Young. My god, it's quite something, what can happen in only a couple of years, ain't it? He went from a bleach-blonde joke wrestler who got stuck in several idiotic gimmicks/angles, to a guy resembling a cross between Luke Gallows & one of his uncles, who has a kayfabe (at least) marriage to the face of the Knockouts Division & an irl TV show..............WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED!?!?!? No, don't take that wrong; I'm proud of the guy; it's just.......rather startling to see the transformation. It's similar to Dolph Ziggler, but with the hair color in the reverse, and not the same kind of push.

Now, as far as the stuff going on, the Aces & Eights thing has been very entertaining to watch thus far. It's like The Nexus on crack. I'm interested to see how it continues to play out.

Given he's been in the business for such a long time, and is basically TNA's first major pickup in that department, it's easy to see why Sting is their 1st HoF inductee. In which case, I see Angle being the one next year.

.....Well, I guess I should be glad that Jeff seems to have gotten his act together (maybe having a kid finally knocked some sense into him)......but I'm still a tad bitter. Even more so when I swore that he used the ANACONDA VICE on Samoa Joe in that BfG qualifier; granted, I was thinking ironically about him doing that just to be a dick since he doesn't really do submission moves, so maybe it was just my eyes playing tricks on me, but DAMNED IF IT DIDN'T LOOK LIKE IT!!!!




ROH:

......In speaking of a Hardy.....a couple of weeks ago, Matt thought it was a great idea to show up at ROH........ON PUNK'S HOME TURF. Of course, the crowd tore him a new asshole. Maybe he'll take a hint next time.

Jay Lethal has been really impressive lately, mostly because he's finally come into his own after spending so long being a Macho Man impersonator. (He still uses the elbow drop, though.) He's now being recognized for the right reasons, rather than just a borrowed gimmick.

Michael Elgin is being set up to be the next face of the company, it looks. The fans are behind the guy, and they've seemingly set it up for Steen to drop the belt before a certain point, which will obviously lead to a Elgin/Strong feud over the title.

In the NO SHIT department, Maria's still hot. I laughed my ass off when Nigel actually made a pussy joke.......yes, she was wearing cat ears, but still, I'm surprised they let him say that (it was bleeped, though). Guess he never saw that one WWE PPV years ago where her white trunks were a tad too see-though........or ANY OF HER PLAYBOY APPEARANCES..........yeah, Nigel, I don't think it's that hard if ya really wanna see it.

.....What? What'd I say?

I like giving the shot to Ryback, but the unfortunate bit here is I don't see him being ready for the belt even a little bit (there's talk that he actually still gets caught up and forgets spots in the ring). So it's the streak vs. the title reign. Title reign should come out on top. Now that isn't necessarily a bad thing. With HIAC being the stip you can book this as it'll take Punk everything and the kitchen sink and he'll need to damn near kill Ryback to slip by him...you could even slip in a Lesnar appearance to start the idea of building towards Survivor Series with H even. Although the more I think about dropping Lesnar into the situation, the more I think they'd actually be better to have another major tag main similar to last year where it'd be Punk/Lesnar vs. H/Ryback and that could then be used as a way to have Ryback prove once again that he can beat Punk, and keep him in the main event conversation, and mitigate any sort of momentum loss he'd get from not capturing the belt in the Cell,

I do think it was a good idea for WWE to defy expectations and put a hot newcomer into the slot vs. trying to sell Cena/Punk again, which is a match I think they've diluted the importance of with the whole Punk turning heel issue. Which after finishing his excellent DVD I find to be even more logic defying and idiotic then ever before.
