[Wrestling] Note: Brock Lesnar died on his way to his home planet

    Cena's over exposed because he's been humping the same dead horse every week for what, 10 years?

    Brock isn't on TV enough, even through his lawyer Heyman, to carry a consistent storyline. That works in UFC, because you are building up to an actual fight, that is only secondarily driven by storyline. (Except for when something extraordinary happens, like Sonnen shitting on the entire country of Brazil)

    In WWE, the fight itself is secondary to carrying a consistent story. Brock/Heyman/HHH needs to be there every week if they want to make the Universe care.

    Well, if Brock was around every week people would be complaining that he's taking TV time away from the younger guys who need it more, so...

    Basically people like to complain no matter what.

    Like me, I'm going to complain about not getting a wedding invitation.

    Well at least Lesnar is overflowing with charisma so that his limited screen time can be best used to hype up any matches he has, like the Rock.

    Oh, wait...

    I'm just happy that him not appearing on TV consistently means I can more easily ignore his employment.

    And the problem with Cena isn't that he's on TV every week, the problem with Cena is what he's doing on TV every week and where his place is on the card every week.

    Yeah, don't get me wrong, I would just love for them to forget about Lesnar and just sort of move on.

    Then in a year or so, we can find out it was really Hornswaggle all along.

  • wirehead26wirehead26 Registered User regular
    I'm still looking forward to HHH/Lesnar because it's something that's never happened before, with the exception of an Austrailian house show back in 2002 that also featured The Rock.

    It's been a long time coming, but the wait is finally over. I officially welcome one and all, veteran and rookie alike, to this new era...the era of TheSultan. Traditionally it's a champions duty to welcome all challengers, but for me to do so, would be to imply that there are any amongst you who could actually serve as a challange to me...there are not. You may as well graft the title to my forum name, because there's no one who can beat me.

    TLB, just give Stormy the belt.

    He'd make the perfect front man for your brand.

    Anyway, WWE in Canada is about to get a whole lot worse next week: Three hour Raws at the same starting time, 9pm... or 9:15, since it sounds like they're keeping the 15-minute countdown to Raw.

    That really just pisses me off. It means that Raw won't be ending until nearly 12:30am every week. Plus, it was bad enough being 15 minutes behind everyone on Twitter, but now to be an HOUR and 15 minutes behind? I might as well just read a report before watching an encore.

    This sucks. Thanks a lot, Score.

    Also: Remember when WWE said that you can watch the first episode of Raw on YouTube? Tried that, got the usual "the uploader has not made this video available in your country" BS. Thanks a lot, WWE.

    That is really dumb. They can't bump bet night live? Does anyone actually watch that show?

    This week's WWE Raw Supershow scored a 3.44 rating, which was up 8.5 percent compared to last week's 3.17 rating for the MITB lead-in.

    The 3.44 rating topped Raw after WrestleMania, which scored a 3.43 rating, and topped Raw after No Way Out last month, which scored a 3.42 rating. Monday's Raw Supershow ranked #2 for the year, trailing Raw after the Royal Rumble, which scored a 3.55 rating.

    A pretty sweet Throwdown Lowdown this week.



    And Wirehead PWG is definitely something you need to check out, it's always been awesome except it had Adam Pierce in it and let him be champ, but all promotions make mistakes.

  • NiryaNirya My name's Bo Rida and I'm here to sayRegistered User regular
    Some promotions even have Adam Pierce book for them. The poor souls.

    I think letting him wrestle is the bigger mistake, but I wasn't watching RoH when he was booking so I could be wrong.

    I'm going to have to unfollow all of the WWE wrestlers on twitter as they all keep linking to tout and I won't have it. Mah Boi Z-Ryder is being the worst offender, too.

    So Tyson Kidd is stuck on Superstars this week after a great showing at MitB. Fantastic.

    I like how the guy gets not one, but TWO PPV matches in a row, plus frequent appearances on Smackdown, yet people are still complaining that he isn't getting a chance just because he's not on the first Smackdown after the second PPV.

    Fair enough, but Tyson Kidd sure as hell won't get over on television if he's not ON IT.

    Once again

    I just want to make it clear here

    The guy went from close to (if not actually) a year of being pretty much mainly on Superstars, to not one, but TWO PPV MATCHES IN A ROW (I don't even think he was on PPV AT ALL last year) PLUS a few wins on Smackdown, one of which was a clean win over a monster heel in less than 10 seconds

    I really don't even know how anybody could complain about Tyson Kidd getting devalued right now, considering that he literally went from the midcard non-televised show to beating a majorly-pushed monster heel in 10 seconds and being in one semi-important PPV match and another really important PPV match in the span of a month

    He specialises in groups. Battling gangs for local charities, that kind of thing.

    More annoying shit:
    So here's the full Superstars spoilers:

    1. Brodus Clay defeated a local wrestler. Over half the upper deck is tarped off. The d-bag arena doesn't have cup holders. WTF? Clay won with the splash, but he refused to pull Will into the ring to dance with him.

    2. Cody Rhodes defeated Tyson Kidd. Rhodes won with a Beautiful Disaster kick. A really good match that is worth going out of your way to watch Superstars for this week.

    3. The Uso Brothers beat Johnny Curtis and Derrick Bateman. The Uso's hit a Samoan drop and followed up with a top rope splash on Bateman for the win.

    4. Sin Cara defeated Drew McIntyre. Sin Cara won a competitive match that went fairly long without a single botch. Another great one to watch. The San Diego crowd was quite into him. This concluded the Superstars taping.

    5. Santino Marella and Layla beat Antonio Cesaro and Aksana in a mixed tag. Layla pinned Aksana after a kick to the head.

    So not only is Cody and Kidd stuck of this show but so are Sin Cara and Claudio. And even worse, the Cara and Cesaro matches might not even be shown since they've already taped 2 matches before Raw. Come on WWE, put these good matches on television that's all I ask.

    People miss tv for a week all the time. Tensai might not even be on tv this week so Kidd did better than him.

    And I feel like they have some plans for something with Tensai vs. Kidd. Especially since Kidd was getting good reactions at the PPV.

    Or maybe, just maybe, they're trying to build up a 3rd show for WWE Network.

    Not to mention they're getting a third hour on Raw. They've got to fill that third hour with something.

    Speaking of Raw, Stephanie teased an appearance on the 1000th Raw.

  • MaximumMaximum Registered User regular
    Are there Smackdown spoilers yet?

    Because how do you know those guys aren't on there too?

    I don't remember people freaking out when Jericho wrestled Yoshi Tatsu or Ziggler wrestled Kofi.

    Sometimes the bigger guys show up on there, it ain't no thing.
