    The Purpose of This?

    I am glad I missed that episode of Smackdown. I came across that footage some time ago online and STILL haven't been able to find anyone to put it into context. Its disgusting and TOTALLY doesn't fit their characters. The two most toughest and roughest men on Smackdown doing this? Why? What angle was this progressing? Do any of you remember this when it first happened? Thoughts? Feelings?

    TNA Impact Spoilers for the Next 2 Weeks.

    Great opening match to kick off the show and a great main event to finish it off. The Foley promo WAS FUCKING GOLD! Foley played a good roll of showing that he truly believes he is in complete control of the program. Him having the guys in the back play the intros to different wrestlers was just the cherry on the sundae. Good promos throughout and I think this is the first go home show TNA has done in a LONG TIME that actually helped the PPV. Oh yeah... and Balls sold those chair shots like a true champion. Beer Money Inc/Team 3D has been booking 101 and it has made BMI come off as TRUE STARS.

    Squash Matches

    WWE should use indy guys for the jobber squash. I agree about TBP not being used anymore. I remember back on Smackdown in 2003-2004 whenever a new wrestler would debut they would run through the CW wrestlers and the go on to Bob Holly and then Billy Gunn, until finally getting into a real program. A system like this could work in today's WWE, but WWE mainly has ECW to weed out the stinkers and the stars.

    WWE 2009 Draft announced

    !$^$#!! Smackdown was looking amazing. I was sitting with a stiffy looking at the roster! But no! NO! Vince had to kill it by putting CANDICE MICHELLE ON SMACKDOWN AND THE BRIAN KENDRICK ON RAW! Why? Why? Who did I wrong in my lifetime? Why does God hate me? Morrison and Ziggler are good picks, but CANDICE MICHELLE? I DON'T THINK I WILL BE ABLE TO GET OVER THIS? This is like the time I went out to dinner with my friends and I was left paying 60 dollars for a meal because everyone wanted to split the check. 60 dollars!? All I had was salad and ice tea! The bellas being drafted to Raw together is very interesting for the simple fact that it seems WWE views them as an item. They were hired into FCW at the same time and brought up to the main roster at the same time and now have been drafted to Raw together. I wonder if they will be released together? oh yeah and a side note. I don't know who is ribbing the fans, but the joke is over. I laughed for about 5 seconds, but the joke is over. or is it? Why is Ricky Ortiz on Smackdown?

    Foley in ROH Part Deux

    When his contract expires do you guys see Foley going to ROH? I would like to see him go back. TNA is a joke and only now has gotten a tad serious but I doubt it will last long. With Flair as the ambassador and Foley in some sort of role (not as gm or commissioner or any of that other bullshit) I can see ROH being the most interesting promotion in 2009.

    WCW facts, tidbits, and stuff people forgot

    Yeah that was DEFINITELY not piped in. People were JACKED. EVERYONE was losing their damn minds in that arena. That match and the Luger match on Nitro are just two examples of wrestling done RIGHT. People can criticize it now all they want but when you a whole arena going nuts and not one person in their seat...that's huge.

    TNA Lockdown 2009

    Hernandez used it and then lost (as you said) and either Cornette or Mick Foley (TNA has too many authority figures for me to remember) came out and cut a promo and said something about Hernandez putting up a hell of a fight and winning by DQ (or was he pinned?) and so Foley pretty much GAVE him a MITB opportunity anytime this year. So he carries the case around for people to remember that rather then Hernandez coming out and promo every week. Lockdown looks good. This is the first TNA PPV I have been excited about in a LONG time. TNA has been good for the last couple of weeks and it seems as though TNA post Destination X is a different company. I'm not sure what happened or if someone was fired, but its beautiful now. Everything on the card looks good with the exception of QOTC II. If I was TNA I would throw Bonaduce/Young on the main show, but I am sure it is something contractual that is keeping them from doing it that way. Foley/Sting is a mixed bag for me. This two can pull out the most surprising performance of this year (EVEN MORE SO THEN STEAMBOAT) or they can totally flop. I have no confidence in their wrestling ability or either man taking bumps, but I do have confidence that these two will tell one hell of a story in the ring and have psychology down to a science. This match isn't going to be about 'cool' moves or highspots. I think this match is going to be storytelling 101 and will be a match people will use as a reference to marks about what 'telling a good story in the ring' means. X match should be fun as should the IWGP Jr tag match. I wonder how NJPW feels about Hernandez competing for the title? TNA has made Beer Money come off as LEGIT CHAMPIONS. No jokes and the booking of the story has been SOLID. LL is always fun to watch and also announced for the card is Abyss/Morgan in a Doomsday Chamber of Blood match. Which is why I am still wondering why QOTC II is on the card and should be on canceled all together.

    The woman's match was interesting for 5 reasons: 1. One of the commentators referring to Gail Kim as a new comer to WWE. 2. One of the commentators pointing out that Maryse and Gail are having problems on Smackdown but have no problem teaming together 3. Layla being on the outside and hearing her ( I believe) yell "fuck you' to one of the women. 4. The 4 woman that can wrestler actually stepped foot in the ring. 5.This is the 3rd or 4th time I have seen Kelly Kelly in a multiple woman match on Raw and NOT step into the ring. That paycheck is easy.

    Mt. Rushmore of wrestling

    Vince,Hogan,Flair,Austin. No love for the old days as 3 of these man brought wrestling to the GREATEST heights it has ever been. Vince surpassed The Goldust Trio,NWA,AWA, and his own father. He created what every wrestling company is now forced to do to an extent in order to become even more popular (look at AAA in Mexico). Those would be the guys on it hands down. If I could throw a 5th one up there it would probably be The Rock.

    2009 Hall of Fame

    Wow! the biggest mark in that place tonight hands down was Victoria. She was the first one and for a few seconds the only one that stood during Lawler's entrance. She also wore a bright yellow dress I guess to standout. That midlife crisis.

    The 'Unwritten' rules of WWE

    1.After a wrestler or group of wrestler win a match they will have a stare down with the losing side for an obscene amount of time while the losing side just makes angry faces yet NEVER gets out of the ring to do anything. Let me just comment on that really quick. I always hated when WWE did this (and they have been doing it for YEARS at this point) but what really pissed me off was doing a 6 woman tag match and Layla (on the losing side) walked right near one of the victors(while they were on the outside) and just rolled into the ring to lean on the ropes and make angry faces. Its not believable to me. There is no way (kayfabe) I would get pinned and then walk about 6 feet from someone on the opposing team without trying to take a swing, but instead get in the ring to show everyone how pissed off I am for losing. It just doesn't look tough and it doesn't look like the loser is that hungry for a win or for a fight. 2. An authority figure will try to put the screws to the top talent on their show and also try to pass of incompetence as stoic vision. 3. The women will be at each others throats one week but the next week the top heel and top face (who are feuding) will stand right next to each other with no altercation for the sake of 'their' brand.

    The Purpose of the Security

    Look at my sig. Think of Mania 4 and 5 and some of the other big events. I can understand why they would do it for liz as she was constantly getting her boobs felt on, but why the other wrestlers? Why would Hogan come out with all this security? Where the wrestlers scared coming down the aisle? What was with the police escorts? Was it because of the era and the fact that so many marks were making death threats? I was always curious about this and this being WM weekend has caused me to watch tons of old footage. 30 security guards to escort Hogan to the ring for a match against Savage?

    The Purpose of the Security

    Goldberg had the security because the NWO attacked him one day (or a couple of times?) and so WCW wanted to protect their investment and champion (if not champion at the time, definitely their biggest star) from these gang style beat downs, so they had security escort him to the ring. It came off as a good idea then and even now when I watch old Goldberg footage, the entrance just looks intense.

    The 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania Thread

    And that's why I think that this won't be the main event. You don't want to send the fans home after a cluster fuck. But TNA does it all the time! Who are you to doubt Russo!?

    TNA Impact Discussion 4/2/09

    Who is the Paul Simon fan in the truck? TNA should have named this episode "Hearts and Bones". The first 30 minutes of Impact has been great. Solid promos to open the show and now the first match is the 8 man tag with all talented competitors. I am glad Homicide and Hernandez came out with their cases.

    WWE 2009 Draft announced

    ECW: Mysterio Big Show Matt Hardy Noble Hawkins Guerrero Festus Kung Fu Naki Jimmy Wang Yang Jesse Zack Ryder Sim Snuka Goldust Tiffany Jillian Hall Rosa Mendez Mark Henry Ortiz Dreamer 20 wrestlers Commentators: Grisham/JBL Ring announcer: Justin Roberts ECW Championship Smackdown: Michaels Jeff Hardy Umaga Kane Ron Killings Layla CM Punk Hass Hurricane Helms Tyson Kidd Natalie Gail Kim Eve Torres Katie Lea Burchill Paul Burchill The Brain Kendrick Nikkie Bella Ezekiel Jackson Edge Santino Marella Christian Cage Finlay Kingston Ziggler DH Smith Benjamin Miz Morrison Hornswoggle Mickie James 30 wrestlers Commentators: Ross/Cole ring announcer: Lilian Garcia I.C. Title, WWE Title, Woman's title. Raw: HHH Cena Kelly Kelly Batista The Legacy The Undertaker Evan Bourne Candice Mr. Kennedy MVP Cryme Tyme Melina Beth Phoenix Mike Knox Regal Carlito Primo Maryse McCool Maria Khali Kozlov Tony Atlas Alicia Fox DJ Gabriel Brie Bella Swagger Jericho 31 wrestlers Commentators: Striker/Lawler Ring announcer: Tony Chimmel Tag Title, World Title, U.S. Championship, Woman's. My Reasons: 1.Raw I barely watch Raw and find most of those episodes corny as hell and boring. So why not put all the wrestlers I am NOT INTERESTED IN on that show. The show however does not suffer from star power as The Legacy,HHH,Jericho,Batista, and Taker are on the show so the marks should be pretty happy. MVP, DJ Gabriel, and Swagger are guys that need to be tested and a live telecast is the best place to do it as I feel they are future impact players of the company. With those three guys playing the U.S. title picture alongside Regal, things should be pretty interesting in the midcard and there are three already established teams on Raw to fight for the unified tag team titles. 2. ECW ECW to me is development for guys and where guys who are about to get shipped out should end their WWE stint. ECW is the show for characters to get over as the writers don't have all the good storylines to give HHH,Orton,Batista,Edge, and Taker and are instead forced to give their ideas to the up and comers to raise their stock in the ring and with the fans. Big Show, Mysterio, Matt Hardy, and Mr. Kennedy would be the main guys on that show. Why? Because I am tired of the first three and have NEVER been high on Kennedy but realize he is pretty over with the fans, but can (at anytime) fizzle out pretty quickly. Also, with those four guys on the show the show has star power. On second thought... I moved Guerrero to Noble to ECW and Mr. Kennedy to Raw as I know the marks would love him and with him added to the U.S. title scene with Gabriel,Swagger,Sydal,Regal, and MVP things should be pretty interesting and I might be forced to tune in every once in a while. 3. I love Smackdown and have for quite some time. One of the best wrestling shows going right now and I want to keep it that way. All my favorites are on that show. The woman's division is strong and so is the world title picture and I.C. title picture. Characters I care about and wrestling matches I want to see. I love Matt Sydal, but I don't want Smackdown to be too spotty or filled with high flyers so I put him on Raw and moved Hass over to Smackdown.

    Vince Mcmahon calls TNA programming "Reprehensible"

    I would like to see a company I support do well. I want them to be as strong as they can be in all areas, because when they are that's usually when they can put the best product forward (booking bigger arenas,singing well known talent, pyro, good theme music, stage setups..etc). TNA buyrates and ratings are important online because of two different schools of though that are constantly battling each other and one of the ways of thinking is obviously running the product 95% of the time while the other school of though runs the product the remaining 5%. TNA acts as though this is 1998 and their booking reflects that and because of that TNA has presented some things that clearly show they do not have their fingers on the pulse of modern wrestling. The other school of thought, that 5% gives TNA their highest rated segments and PPV buyrates. This way of thinking is more of a smark approach to the business and keeping everything simple. The ratings feul both sides of the argument and for a company STILL trying to find its identity after 7 years, its pretty important in where the company goes and usually ratings can predict that.

    The 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania Thread

    What's the swerve in that? Swerves are finishes of matches, not match placement. A swerve encompasses the finishes of matches, character turns, angles taking an unexpected turn. The swerve in this case would be tons of WWE fans bitching and moaning (in some cases) about HHH/Orton being the main event and thus going into Mania with a sour pussy look on their face all week expecting the PPV to end with something they don't really care about. If WWE ends Mania with HBK/Taker I can honestly see NO ONE complaining as it would deliver and would be UNEXPECTED of WWE to do something like that. Orton/HHH as the main event is WWE planning it very safe. I do agree about the matches on the card being so well booked its hard to call them in advance. Sometimes WM can be called 2 months before the PPV even airs, but for this one...everything is up in the air and I don't know who is going to come out victorious! Ohhh goodie I'm a mark again... *laughs like a girl*

    The OaO Raw Thread - 3/30/09

    I think it's good that he stays undefeated. I mean Undertaker's Wrestlemania matches at this point this point in his career to the point he retires ought to be a more serious verison of a globe troter game. By that I mean they should be good matches that can come close to the wire, but Taker still manage to win. It's one of the many things that sets him apart from the rest of the WWE roster, past and present.

    I can see WWE pulling a nice big swerve and having Michaels/Taker mainevent the PPV.
