Dude Love has the greatest theme music of all time, and his titantron makes me laugh every time I see it. It's an ace character, and his feud with Austin in 98 is one of my favourites.

As far as being in shape goes, being an average Joe and a bit of a slob was literally the appeal of the character. He was the every man, the underdog. He talks in his books about being ribbed whenever he worked out because he'd ruin his gimmick if he lost too much weight.

With changing the channel, you're demonstrably in the minority here, as the announcement that Foley was to win the title in 99 resulted in people turning over from Nitro in droves to see it (choosing to watch that over Hulk Hogan vs Kevin Nash, by the way). It was literally the turning point of the Monday Night Wars. WCW never beat them in the ratings again after that.

Who said that? He was an okay talker at best.

He can do comedy (The Rock's "This is Your Life" segment), badass, babyface fire (Cactus Jack return vs HHH in 2000) and heartbreaking tragedy ("Dad, I didn't tap out" at Survivor Series 98, "You'll have to kill me" at Royal Rumble 99). Fuck, watch ANY promo from late 98 onwards, and it'll be solid gold.

Are you related to him? Seriously, they guy was average at best.

Widely regarded, both by fans and insiders, as one of the best ever. Listen to anyone in the business speak about him.

Where are you getting this stuff? He married a total diva , and ran around saying "yes" and sometimes " no ".

I watched his matches? The stuff he did with guys like CM Punk and The Shield, or his stuff with guys like Morishima, Kenta, Chris Hero or Samoa Joe in ROH was must watch TV. There is no one better in the ring.

Nash is amazing. If only Scott Steiner could host the other show.

Kevin Nash is an insecure prick who only cares about Kevin Nash, never wrestled a good match in his career, and maintained his spot by politicking and backstabbing. Both Bryan and Foley kept their spots because the fans refused to have it any other way.

Hopefully, They do not show Foley or Bryan very often. I would rather see, Steph and Shane argue.

McMahon infighting was stale 15 years ago. Do something new. It's why I'd rather not see Foley as GM. He's already done it, and done it the best it was ever done. Do something different, don't rehash what worked before.

It is okay if you like him, I do not.

I can understand that people like an every man, underdog.

That is true. The Monday night wars were a great time. I was on team WCW.

Widely regarded, both by fans and insiders, as one of the best ever. Listen to anyone in the business speak about him.

I do not get why people like him so much, but I feel the same way about the Usos. Not everybody likes the same wrestlers.

I watched his matches? The stuff he did with guys like CM Punk and The Shield, or his stuff with guys like Morishima, Kenta, Chris Hero or Samoa Joe in ROH was must watch TV. There is no one better in the ring.

I think his small height and cruiser weight moves were lost on me.

Kevin Nash is an insecure prick who only cares about Kevin Nash, never wrestled a good match in his career, and maintained his spot by politicking and backstabbing.

I highly disagree. He was good as Diesel, but much better as Hall and Nash in WCW's invasion angle.

McMahon infighting was stale 15 years ago.

That is true.

Do something new. It's why I'd rather not see Foley as GM. Do something different, don't rehash what worked before.

They could of chosen Corporate Kane, he would make a great choice.

The first Tuesday Smackdown was very disappointing. They made up all these rules for the draft, and then did not follow them. Raw drafted the New Day , three people, which should of gave SD two picks. However, it was all back and forth. The main event was a repeat from RAW.

Yeah I found it to be a snoozefest IMO I think its gonna be a bigger failure then ECW or the Alliance Storyline

We can only blame the manager of Smackdown, Daniel Bryant. Did he really let everybody down? Yes! Yes!

Draft was a disapointment.

Don't think either the women's or tag divisions have the depth to survive being split in two. Bringing up Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax and Carmella definitely helps, as does bringing up American Alpha and (presumably with Mojo called) The Hype Bros, but it's not enough.

I'd have stuck the Cruiserweight and Women's divisions on Raw, and the tag on Smackdown.

Also instead of calling up Eva Marie I'd have fired her. Out of a cannon. Into the sun.

Dude Love was bad, but everything else was excellent. Foley's psychology was amazing, his promos were great, and he was maybe the first guy to really give The Undertaker some good matches and completely revitalized him.

Who said that? He was an okay talker at best.

Are you trolling? Or do you just not understand wrestling?

Are you related to him? Seriously, they guy was average at best.

I'll repeat the above question.

Where are you getting this stuff? He married a total diva , and ran around saying "yes" and sometimes " no ".

Again, trolling or don't understand the business? Bryan was Chris Benoit without the murder. The guy was not a spectacular talker, but he didn't have to be, just needed to get the point across and because he came off as "real" and people could see how hard he was working they got behind him.

Nash is amazing. If only Scott Steiner could host the other show.

Amazing talker, amazing mind for the business, shit in ring worker, never a guy who would have matches you'd be dying to go back and watch.

Hopefully, They do not show Foley or Bryan very often. I would rather see, Steph and Shane argue.

Yup, don't understand wrestling, ok then.

That post about Foley/Bryan... The hell? Take all of Foley's matches away, and you still have one of the better talkers in the history of professional wrestling. And Bryan despite being retired is STILL one of the most popular guys in WWE, hell, he's more popular than someone like Roman Reigns who WWE is (Or was, I guess) in love with.. Oh yeah, Daniel is also the best pure in-ring performer of the last 16 years.

Anyways, SD still feels like the B show (Its Ambrose, Styles, Cena, Orton and everyone else), and I really don't see the brand split being a long term thing.

Not sure if this was posted, but this is Cesaro's promo after being drafted. I've heard it was a shoot, but then WWE posted it on its Youtube page (Which males me think it was planned).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dV_z4Vy0xQ

And last, but not least. Is anyone watching the Cruiserweight Classic? Its only two weeks in and its already given me two fun hours of wrestling, and probably the best announcing out of any show under the WWE banner (Courtesy of the duo of Bryan/Mauro). Not to mention seeing the likes of TJP and Kota Ibushi in a WWE ring which is just crazy.

I personally dislike Foley and Bryan. I had no idea everybody else loves them so much. I also dislike Chris Benoit. I would go back and discuss each post, but due to new rules that is forbidden. Who knew? lol

I just don't understand how anybody who claims to be a fan of pro wrestling can dislike two guys that in different ways are textbook examples of how to get over and be assets to a promotion.

Well, there's good reasons to dislike Benoit...

What new rule is this? I've never heard of it.

They can't gut RAW, it makes too much money for the company. I thought SD! did very well for the idea their trying to present of it being the underdog show where newer talent will be able to have an opportunity to get over, and mishandled talent might be able to shake off some of the dirt and be revitalized. The only negative for me is if WWE decides to leave the titles as they are, and exclusive to the shows they were drafted to, that would put SD! at a real disadvantage and create no logical "finale" or "goal" if you're a woman or a tag team on that brand because you'd have nothing to fight for.

Not sure if this was posted, but this is Cesaro's promo after being drafted. I've heard it was a shoot, but then WWE posted it on its Youtube page (Which males me think it was planned).

If it was a shoot and they weren't happy with it, it wouldn't be up there, yeah. My sincere hope is that this is the start of a renewed push for him and an angle that can finally give him the real chance he deserves to show how far he can go.

And last, but not least. Is anyone watching the Cruiserweight Classic?

Not to mention seeing the likes of TJP and Kota Ibushi in a WWE ring which is just crazy.

Been absolutely loving the CWC and I really hope that when they bring this over to RAW (I've heard some of these guys will be signed, will be interesting to see which ones) that they keep up this very similar style and pace of things and just add some good storylines to it (which was where WCW ultimately fell on it's ass with the Cruisers, and WWE did too in it's prior incarnation of the division).

I find Chris Jericho, Randy Orten, and Brock Lesnar to be better than Foley or Bryan.

I was never a fan of his even before his sad ending.

A flightless bird on a pole informed me that if you reply to an older post you will be in trouble. He has been known to go out of his way to get me.

By what metric? I'm curious. Because I can see some areas where they may appeal more, and in some cases draw more money overall. But just because you like somebody better, or you can find some metrics to say those people may be "better" it doesn't justify the point you were trying to say that those guys are no good.

I was never a fan of his even before his sad ending.

That's not a word I'd use. What he did was tragic for his victims and their families, I believe it's also horrible and sad for his family that he stained them, and they have to live with what he did. But for him? No sympathy, a cowardly monster who did horrible things that weekend and then refused to stand and face his just punishment.

A flightless bird on a pole informed me that if you reply to an older post you will be in trouble.

No, that's not true. If you reply to an older post or "necro bump" an older post or topic with something that doesn't add to or reignite the discussion, you'll have problems. Because we don't want to see a situation where good topics have a harder time getting a foothold because of somebody just bumping a bunch of dead wood back up. Or it being a case where somebody is just trying to make their post count really high without adding anything (that's why we frown on somebody trying to have the last reply on every topic on the first page of a forum, it's usually because at some point it just became about having the stat, and not offering benefit to each topic). That's what we're trying to discourage, we want quality here, not quantity.

Whenever I see Foley, I see a fat bearded guy. Bryan will always be a short, lanky crusierweight trying to be a heavyweight.

I agree that he what he did was terrible. It totally stained and ruined any chance of a legacy.

This is probably is not the best place to discuss this. Recently, there has been a few disagreements between users and mods over being " ban happy and abuse of power. " The situation won't get better until there is a position made to monitor the mods. A person the users can go to, when they feel that they have been mistreated.

It's not, no. I just meant to reply to your comment. As for the rest of it? I think a lot of the complaints, when you look at them, are from really problem users of the site that deserve what they get to be honest. The admins monitor the mods, and users should honestly go try some other forums around the net. You'd come crying back to NG and never bitch about bans and things again because NG gives you WAY more freedom then a lot of other places. Sorry, but I've been a mod for a very long time now, I don't get paid for it, nobody does, and nobody ever seems to care about the abuse and the crap I take off of people. It's a two way street but it's being treated and framed as very one way and I'm tired of it.

When Wade was around, things seemed better. He wasn't the best, but when I wrote him a PM he would always reply. That may not seem like much, but communication is important. I have written many mods, and have never heard back from them. You have no idea if they read, or even did anything with what you wrote. I was told that Bren-the-Man was suppose to take over for Wade, but that does not seem to be true. I can understand why users would be upset , or even leave NewGrounds forever. Especially, when you see others break the rules and never get punished. It could drive anybody off the deep end.

Well, folks do come here for the wrestling talk, not for NG politics or any of that. So I'm going to go ahead and respectfully say that I've read this, and I'll shoot you a PM later with some thoughts and we can continue our discussion that way without disrupting the flow of things here. I don't want to come off as ignoring you, but I also agree it's not in the best interest of the thread to keep an off topic tangent running.

They did it before, and might do it again. They love pass the belts around like trading cards.

They would make an announcement that the title will return. Have a tournament to see who gets it. The same gimmick they do when they strip a title or the champion gets injured.

I actually Think that Stephanie will bring the title back and award it to Rollins the same way that Bischoff awarded it to Triple H in 2002

They will just bring back the spinner US Title and make that the main one :3

So.. Battleground was a damn fine show (Probably WWE's best ofthe year so far). Some though on the matches.

The Usos vs. Breezango was a solid match on the kick-off show. Loved the fans being behind Breeze/Curtis and shitting on the Usos. The Usos are a good team in the ring, but they're boring otherwise. The fans actually popped for the heels winning.

Banks/Bayley vs Dana Brooke/Charlotte was the perfect choice for the opener. Bayley got one of, if not the biggest pop on the night out of anyone on the roster, and was cheered by men, women, and kids (Something that the Cena's and Reigns' of the world can't do.). There were some scary moments with Sasha almost killing Charlotte (And herself) on the 2nd rope Rana attempt, and Dana being Dana which is... not good. Still, the right team, and we got a great moment.

Please, WWE. Don't screw it up with Bayley.

New Day vs The Wyatts was the 3rd straight solid match, with some great character work by Woods. There was another scary moment where Big E went for the Spear through the ropes and almost landed on the top of his head. I think its time for Big E to retire that move.

Ryder vs Rusev was the weakest match up to this point. Not bad, it just felt like a RAW match. Rusev retains with The Accolade, and is now the top champion on RAW (At least for the time being). Loved Rusev's reaction at Mojo Rawley when he came out with Rusev wondering just who the fuck this guy was.

Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn. Match of the night by a mile, and one of the top two WWE matches produced this year (Zayn/Nakamura being the other). This was a good match up until the Zayn botch... and then it became a great match. Sami did a great job of selling the shoulder, and KO went right after that. The Brainbuster on the apron by Sami was SICK, and the ending with Zayn's look of disdain shortly before hitting the second Helluva Kick was the best of the year. If you see nothing else from this show, watch this match!

Becky Lynch vs Natalya. Poor women. They put on a very good match, but after Zayn/Owens, the fans just weren't going to care. The ladies did bring the fans back into the match a bit near the end at least, so there's that. Don't see the logic behind Becky taking the L. She's over with the fans, is a great in-ring worker, and she's incredibly attractive. Really don't see the need to have her lose EVERY singles match she has on PPV.

Darren Young vs The Miz: Easily the weakest match on the show. I honestly can't remember anything about this match except that bizarre ending. Miz goes out to confront Backlund, Young locks in a Cobra Clutch (Come on, man! That's not the Cross-Face Chicken Wing!) and the ref calls for the bell. Not sure if that was a DQ, and I never heard the ref count so it couldn't have been a Count-Out. I did like Young looking at his hands in shock of what he had done, a nod to Backlund's reaction when HE would snap back in the 90's.

The Club vs Cena/Cass/Enzo.. Enzo is popular, like very popular. His pre-match promo was something, but it was incredibly entertaining. The match was good, and Cena winning was the right decision. Cena can go on to continue his feud with Styles on SD, and I'm sure The Club can find someone on RAW to replace AJ (Hi, Finn!).

The highlight reel was better than I expected. Jericho's current incarnation is hilarious, and Orton was the most entertaining he's been since... let's just say since a long while. Of course, Randy is going to get murdered by Lesnar due to THAT comment, but I don't really mind.

Ambrose vs Rollins vs Reigns: I'll admit, seeing the GM's at ringside I thought we would get a screwy finish. Thankfully, that wasn't the case. This was a great match, but it was never going to live up to the hype. Loved the callbacks from the Powerbomb through the table to Rollins hitting both men in the back with a steel chair (Similar to how all this started when Rollins turned). The right guy won, and both Ambrose and SD got to finish the show on top. The two big questions are who does Dean face at Summerslam? And what happens on RAW as far as a top title is concerned?

I have to mention that Roman looked a bit on the chunky side during the main event. Just don't tell him I said that.

We will have to see if and how it happens.

That was a nifty belt. A unique belt is always the best.

Tonight's RAW was one of the best that I have seen in a long time. Sasha Banks beat Charlotte for the belt. Ric Flair's daughter got a beating that she deserved. The Boss proved that she is the top Diva. The New Day met a big fan , and everybody enjoyed Booty O's. Like I predicted, they was a tournament for a new belt on RAW. Finn Balor won the first four man battle. Roman Reigns won the second four man battle. It all came down Finn Balor vs. Roman Reigns. Most fans went to bed.

Roman Reigns did his weak spear and his lame ass punch. Things were look sad, but then Finn Balor felt this strange power.
Balor thought to himself, what would my hero do? Finn had to dig deep, he had to do what only one other person had ever done? Finn Balor beat Reigns so bad, that he he cried. Baylor beat Roman Reigns so bad, Roman ran to his locker room and looked for more drugs.

At the end of RAW, Roman Reigns wished he could be like his hero, Charlie Sheen. However, Charlie Sheen actually won and Roman Reigns is a loser. Yes, Roman Reigns is a crybaby loser.

Finn Balor went to his locker room , and was happy that he would he one step closer to being like his hero, Hulk Hogan. Hulk Hogan told him to say your prayers, take your vitamins and you will never go wrong, Brother!
