    Seeing Teddy with Mark is pretty fantastic.

    I never understood why didn't didn't have more success in wrestling. He had a great look and good work the mic well. Guess some guys just don't make it for whatever reason.

    Just watched the European edit of Smackdown. It's a mess:
    Daniel Bryan does indeed look like a hypocrite for cashing in the Briefcase and he really doesn't reflect on that hypocrisy at all.
    The Fatal Four-way is just a complete fuzz, Bryan is made to look daring and brave but weak, I mean genuinely, properly weak. I really don't want to sound like a twattish IWC member here but the ending of the match is pretty much specifically Orton picking him out as the one to deliver his finishing sequence to as he's the weakest of the three opponents and then Bryan getting the more acceptable version of a roll-up (a messily applied LeBell lock as Rhodes goes to pin him) for the win.
    Ugh.
    The only problem I had with the match came right after the faces cleared the ring of the heels and the crowd became electric. We haven't seen much of Orton and Bryan in the same ring let alone in a one on one situation so this was going to be something special. As soon as Orton turned around the crowd popped loud. Bryan started hopping back and forth as if to warm up for what would be a match within a match. The crowd starts getting louder. Dramatic close ups aaaaaaaaaaannnd cut to commercial.

    That was some TNA-ass editing right there. Had the initial Orton/Bryan showdown been included in the airing I think they would have come across more as equals. I wouldn't expect the commentary to put over the idea of Orton wanting to see if he could beat Bryan, but then again this is a team that spent the entire show bickering about a bottle of water.

    Yeah as far as four-way matches go it wasn't as good as the Ibushi/Generico/Jigsaw/Nick Jackson elimination match that gets posted around here every so often but it was a pretty good match.

    Smackdown in general was pretty good, better than the initial spoilers indicated. Nice to see they haven't given up completely on Mahal with him starting a feud with Ted. Even if the matches won't be that good at least it's something for midcarders to do other than random matches.

    Ted needs some new entrance music

  • wirehead26wirehead26 Registered User regular
    Also they need to give Mahal his old finisher back:

    Bryan really needs to start doing the Jim Neidhart beard stroke taunt.

    Glad I dont read spoilers. That was pretty surprising.

    OK, they definitely need to let D-Bry win the belt for real at some point

    The crowd reaction was phenomenal, and the look on Cole's face was priceless

  • Sweeney TomSweeney Tom Registered User regular
    And I just realized

    Even though it didn't technically stand

    For a minute there, we simultaneously had CM Punk as WWE Champ, and Daniel Bryan as World Champ

    An ROH fan's wet dream

    Not until the title unification match.

    Freaking GREAT tag match there guys. Ziggler was just fantastic bumping around Curt Hennig-style.

    Booker T just said Ted DiBiase reminds him of Tim Tebow

    I love this Smackdown

  • wirehead26wirehead26 Registered User regular
    I still hope Slater finds success, damn the haters. Which appears to be everyone but me.

    OK I'll admit I'm biased cause I saw him in the Georgia indy scene back in the mid-00s.

    OH MY GOD DIBIASE JUST TEBOWED

    Dibiase I could take or leave. He's not awful though.

    I'm sure they will. If they're serious about having him wait until Wrestlemania to cash in (and they may as well, at this point), he has to be seriously tempted at some point, and he has to hit a low. Give him a bunch of Rocky style viginettes and build him up to take on Henry (ideally) and then do a true underdog thing. And honestly, the people in charge of Smackdown have earned some good will lately.

  • wirehead26wirehead26 Registered User regular
    Still think Bryan should be a heel. Maybe he can turn after he wins it.

    I'M NOT FINISHED WITH YOU!!!
  • HjorvarthrHjorvarthr Registered User regular
    And Henry had been beating the shit out of Bryan for like the last month


    Cashing in and taking the title from Henry would have been the ultimate revenge

    Why? This storyline works just as well, if not better, with him as a face. At the moment he's an underdog, and people love underdogs.

    This is why I really hope the plan to have Taker in a World Title match at Mania is actually true and happens.

    If they really want to have this angle work, have D-Bry constantly try and cash in, and keep failing. Have him continue to be frustrated and show building rage at each failure.

    Then Mania comes, Taker has a long, hard-fought match, and wins the World title, but exhausted, falls and is slow to get up. Just as he gets up, "The Final Countdown" by Europe plays, D-Bry runs down, cashes in, and wins to a series of boos, ending the undefeated Mania streak and Taker's short title reign in the process.

    That is pretty much the best way to make Bryan a star through this angle.

    Love that big boot spot Barrett does on the ropes.

    Because only as a heel can he really do the "I have 'til five, referee!" bit right. Love that so much.

    Oh God I miss that so much

  • Goose!Goose! That's me, honey Show me the way home, honeyRegistered User regular
    So what the fuck is up with the difficulty to WWE 12? I played my created superstar (90 overall) vs Jomo and every other thing I tried to do the AI countered and I could barely get the counter timing down for anything other than a strike. This was on normal.

  • LockedOnTargetLockedOnTarget Registered User regular
    It's a way harder game than the others. Not only do they counter a lot, but the AI just seems more aggressive in general.

    I find that it helps to go into the options and lower the AI counter rate a tad. I would suggest experimenting around with the AI settings until you find something that feels good to you.

  • DJ EebsDJ Eebs Moderator, Administrator admin
    you can turn down their counter rates in sliders

  • Goose!Goose! That's me, honey Show me the way home, honeyRegistered User regular
    Will do. Servers haven't been up since I got the game, which is also a little annoying.

  • DJ EebsDJ Eebs Moderator, Administrator admin
    The coolest thing in this is that there's a thing where you can pick a created wrestler and it will automatically make an entrance movie for you. Plus, if you choose the gangster rap song it generates the funniest goddamn video ever

    Where what who?! I have no video because it said it needed a highlight reel to make one.

    Also next week they HAVE to have Clay debut just so he can squash Morrison out of the company. It's too perfect.

    Fuck. I forgot about the "I have til five" bit. One of the best things about his WWE run is watching to see what heels will use it against him.

    This week's Z!:TLIS is pretty good but it's missing one thing...
    Note: Jomo died on the way back to his home planet

    Go to create an entrance, and go to the "custom video" part of that menu. You'll be given some options to fill out, and it will generate a video based on your finishers, signature moves and taunts.

    Just kicked out of Sheamus' finisher as Dbry in Universe mode. Felt like a boss.

    Ever since I unlocked Brock Lesnar the computer has scheduled Brock vs Orton every week...on WWE Superstars.

    the weirdest bug I've had was in the royal rumble

    I kept trying to put people over the top rope but the character would freeze and slide through the ropes, through mid-air (he stayed at the same height as if he was still standing in the ring) and into the crowd

    and then I could hop back into the ring without problem

    happened like three times

    I had this except I couldn't get back in the ring at all.

    I was frustrated by the create an entrance mode because I was picking highlights out of matches to create a video and they didn't even matter, but the video creation is awesome once you know what it can do.
