    Punk's booking?

    The problem with cashing in and losing is that it cheapens the integrity of the MITB match. Money In The Bank has become one of the main attractions of Wrestlemania and people generally wanna see the person who wins it, win a world title. It's similar to when someone wins the Royal Rumble, they're expected to walk into the Wrestlemania main event and walk out a champion. (this year not withstanding but Orton was a heel and fans wanted him to lose anyway). Having Punk lose will just make the briefcase less valuable and people will become less interested in the concept if they carry around this prop for months and don't utilize it. The solution is to have Punk win it in a way that hasn't been done before. The pre-announcement thing isn't bad and it could work but a fresh idea like having a world title challenger get attacked backstage and not able to compete for the world title that now. When the champion comes out, who is his replacement opponent? Cashing in the briefcase, CM Punk. Have him win it and it sets up a problem with the ex-champ and now with the challenger who never got his shot.

    Which is the most important match in a feud

    Which is the most important match in a feud

    Jeff was picked over Matt in the summer of '02 to face RVD over who would face Benoit for the IC title at Summerslam. Matt got jealous and cost Jeff the match and title oppourtunity and then jumped to Smackdown later that week. Jeff got a measure of revenge at the '03 Royal Rumble by running in and immediatley targeting Matt and even hit him with the Swanton. There wasn't a real "fued" per say but both men were on opposite sides of the heel/face spectrum.

    Heel Characters That You Agreed With?

    When Big Show turned heel in early 2000 because he didn't like the way The Rock was calling him names. Hey, The Rock WAS being an asshole. Can't blame Show for getting upset.

    Moments So Contrived

    The formation of Evolution lasted about a week before Orton (who just returned from an injury) and Batista both went down with injuries during the same match. It was a house show match with the Dudleyz in early 2003 I believe. Evolution was never mentioned again until Orton returned that summer. Batista eventually returned later that fall.

    Knowing is doing a hell of a lot better than I originally guessed.

    The Old School questions thread

    Booker was somewhat buried when he came into WWE. He had a great debut but then they jobbed him to every main event player during his first few months (Taker, Rock, Austin) and eventually became nothing more than a midcarder by 2002. It took him years to regain his momentum.

    YO! TSM raps: John Cena in 2009

    Yea, I think the story was that they asked Jay-Z first and he turned them down right away. They then asked Fabolus and he actually agreed to do it but I think he got in trouble with the law around Mania time and couldn't be there so they just had Cena bury both of them on the pre-show. Cena cut a promo on the Smackdown before Mania and issued an open challenge to any rapper in a freestyle contest so I assume this was originally planned for the main show.

    and tassle boots!
  11. Apparently, Van Damn and Dolph Lundgren are making a third Universal Soldier movie. The first one is one of my all time guilty pleasures, the second one sucked though. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1288403/
  12. The "Once" parody on The Simpsons tonight was pretty funny.

    WWF/E Tidbits from the past

    Why did they discontinue the European belt shortly after WMXV only to bring it back that summer?
  14. Woe, Test's death made the newswire at IMDB. That's the only wrestler's death (not counting Benoit) I've ever seen reported there.

    Keanu Reeves appreciation

    You know, for a guy who can't act for shit, he has appeared is some of the most iconic movies of our generation. He knows his weaknesses and knows how to choose the right films. The Good: Speed The Matrix trilogy Point Break Constantine Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure & Bogus Journey The Devil's Advocate A Scanner Darkly The Bad: The Lake House Feeling Minnesota Chain Reaction Hardball The Ugly: Sweet November The Watcher Johnny Mnemonic Notice how some of his best films are ridiculous action movies that just require him to just stand there and look pretty. The guy knows his limitations and I can respect that. Has he made some stinkers? Absolutley but I give him credit for taking chances and exploring different genres.

    Wrestling Quirks

    When you're a face, you easily defeat your opponents cleanly but need to bend all sorts of rules to barely win a match when you're heel (JBL, Hogan, etc.)

    The 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania Thread

    I think Sunny and Mae Young would be pretty good to go. Sable wouldn't due to the whole Lesnar thing and Lita apparently turned them down already. I wouldn't count out Ivory.
  19. I guess this is Jericho's revenge for Test eliminating him from the 2003 Royal Rumble.

    Keanu Reeves appreciation

    Street Kings: I just saw this movie for the first time last night and didn't mind it. It wasn't great but it was passable. Constantine: I didn't like the movie at first because it's confusing as hell the first time you see it but upon repeated viewings, I've grown to appreciate it a lot more. The supporting cast (minus LaBeouf) is great and who doesn't like seeing Gavin Rossdale getting his ass kicked? Matrix Trilogy: I saw the first one recently and yes, it still holds up. I like Reloaded too if not just for the over the top action sequences and I didn't like Revolutions at first but it's another movie I grew to appreciate upon repeated viewings. Yea, the sentinal battle scene drags on way too long but I find the movie acceptable way to end the whole matter. A Scanner Darkly: I enjoyed this one a lot. Robert Downey Jr. is hysterical and the crazy storyline and animation is awesome.

    Wrestling Quirks

    Whenever a heel wrestler cheats, the commentators always damn him to hell for it but when a face wrestler cheats, the commentators think of bullshit excuses to try and justify it. This has bothered me for awhile.

    Keanu Reeves appreciation

    I'm indifferent to The Replacements. I don't think it's bad but I wouldn't really call it good either. More like "entertaining".

    Weekend Box Office Report

    I went to go see Watchmen last night and someone pulled the fire alarm in the theater 20 minutes in so they just gave out passes and told us to go home. Still upset over that one but hey, that's NYC youth for you.

    WWE Smackdown - March 6, 2009

    I guess the gym isn't Matt's friend right now, he's looking a little pudgier than usual.
