This will either be the best thing ever or the worst, if they don't do beaker and sheamus together I will riot!
but the WWE is actually staged, they mostly fight from a script
not trying to be a dick or anything i just don't want you to be misled
And wrestlers are real athletes
incredible athletes really. i mean they look ridiculous sometimes, but the stamina and endurance involved is remarkable.
Just look at the back cover of Mick Foleys "Have a nice day" autobiography that lists all his injuries. Still can't believe he lost his ear and kept going.
If you've not watched over the Summer, you missed the brilliant storyline/shoot that CM Punk had. Probably the most gripped I've been by WWE since the initial Nexus storyline. Seeing John Cena being hated at a PPV as strongly as he did at the ECW one (One Night Stand, I think) was something of beauty.
The Rock is coming back at Survivor Series and being John Cenas tag partner against Miz and Truth. Not quite sure why they've done this whole angle of Rock coming back, maybe he wants to get back into wrestling because his movie career didn't go anywhere (or maybe he wants to star in one of the AMAZING WWE movies).
HHH, gotta agree, nothing new here.
Sheamus, I liked his face turn, but now don't see much in him again. I really don't think they know what to do with the guy for a personality.
Agree about the ring collapsing, but you gotta admit, Henry suplexing Show is an impressive feat by both guys.
Agree about Cole v JR. No idea why they are bringing this about again.
John Laurenitis is someone that I've thought was quite good. A head honcho guy getting legit heat. Unlike other type of heel managers/head honchos, etc who use like one word or something cheap.
If you want other people to watch who are doing something interesting try; Cody Rhodes, Daniel Bryan (just for awesome wrestling ability) or the botchtastic Sin Cara.
As for an overview of 2011, you've gotta ask, where is the competition? TNA have fallen so far behind, I would say it's not far off Ring of Honour level of popularity. It's just a WWE reject paradise and for junkies (I'm looking at you Jeff).
yeah, not much really interesting since then for Punk.
I hated it, when they became buddies and teamed up against Miz and Truth at Vengeance. It totally went against everything Punk had said before. It just shows that they are not totally for Punk, when he is only just getting his rematch clause against Alberto Del Rio at Survivor Series.
Cena will NOT turn heel for a long time. He sells far too much merchandise to the kids and the kids love him. If you listen to the crowd when the chant "Let's go Cena/Cena sucks" start, it's all kids and women for Cena and deep guys voices during Cena sucks. He does so much stuff for charities for them, that he couldn't turn heel because of it. Can you imagine their poster boy doing charity stuff and then being a mean heel? Just wouldn't work.
Don't get me wrong, his character is soo stale and boring, the only time I was interested in him was during the summer with Punk.
Rumours abound for Punk to face Austin at Wrestlemania, though I can't see it. I don't think Austin can do another match.
until it decided that turning into a grey/blue Monday Nitro tribute act. Terrible plot retreads using so many of the same old faces.
although James Storm as champion was a good move
were the best 'new' tag team I'd seen in ages - not that I keep close attention these days.
when they put that thing in about it being about wrestling. Then they have loads of talking segments and not much wrestling. Bischoff doesn't really have a clue.
fuck TNA and WWE
as everything I've heard about it seems that the wrestling is miles better. Considering Bryan Danielson and Low Ki had some time there. Not really sure where to start, any suggestions?
for the final 2 matches, they were both amazing... especially El Generico Vs Kevin Steen which is one of the best matches I have ever seen on any promotion.
I can invite you to a torrent site where you'll be able to get them easily
I joined it to get entire seasons of Raws gone by :D And PPVS
can a brother bum an invite?
if you could invite me to the torrent site, that would be awesome.
which is annoying as it doesn't seem like he's received it! I will send you one as one becomes available! PM me with your e-mail! Actually they might be taking new users on http://xtremewrestlingtorrents.net/ check in the mean time (though I doubt it as they're doing a mass ratio ban soon)
Will PM it over to you
the finale is the single greatest wrestling match I've ever seen. I was close to tears.
Also just sign up to their site (free) and you can catch the new episode every thursday.
I didn't know you could watch the episodes free. Just signed up and will start watching.
I didn't know Jay Lethal had left TNA and gone to ROH. I always liked that guy and thought he was better than his Macho Man gimmick.
bar the El Generico Kevin Steen feud, which was amazing last year, the story telling has a lot to be desired and I find it hard growing attached to the wrestlers therefore I don't care about the fights at all.
I'm giving it another shot now it's on TV again therefore I hope they do a better job in making me care about the Create A Wrestler models they have from top to bottom.
Chikara is quite fun, comedic wrestling that birthed the most illegal move in wrestling history.
but the few episodes they've done so far have been really really good at explaining things and getting you attached. Jim Cornette just shoots UFC style, explaining each wrestler. I'm already massively invested in davey richards, eddie edwards and the briscoes. what they lack in presentation they more than make up for in amazing spots.
I've seen some chikara but same problem as ROH once had, it needs a tv show! seemed really fun though, laughed my ass off several times
now that is a promotion that knows how to have fun. Hence, why I've got Dragon Dragon in my profile pic.
The commentating in Botchamania 27 with Dragon Dragon is the single most funniest thing I have EVER heard in my life.
should be good watching, just noticed they have a new show as well, just giving it a cheeky download
feels a bit bland now though
Haven't watched it in ages though.
