    Does anyone know if you start getting angles in the My Career mode or is it just a series of matches with text boxes before them?

    I've always struggled a lot with the storyline editor in TEW. I've found the amount of work it takes on the front end to be difficult.

    KotR started in 1985 and lasted till 1991 (although there was no tourney in 1990) as a non-televised event that nonetheless the winner usually called himself King afterwards if he was a heel.

    How dare you forget about the short and ill-fated reign of King Duggan? He was a just and good liege, until he was overthrown by the dastardly but awesome Macho King, who gained his rule by right of "possession of the crown is 9/10ths of the law"

    I still want a pro wrestling game with a career mode that completely breaks kayfabe

    before each match you're told what the booking is, how much time you have, etc., and then you have to execute on that plan. You get graded based on your performance and on the crowd reaction

    additionally, you would have to navigate backstage politics. If you piss your opponent off right before a match, they may sandbag and make it very hard for you to work. Conversely, if your opponent likes you, they may go out of their way to make you look like a million bucks. Standing up for someone backstage may earn you respect from the locker room but put you on creative's shit-list

    I don't know how big the audience for that game would be and it would probably be pretty tough to make, but I would play the absolute shit out of it

    Yeah I found it cumbersome because it took so long to book angles and storylines and then it'd just be a text box and usually it'd be like "the crowd doesnt care" Grade: D.

    And Id be like ugh forget it. If there was a version of that game that was like, SLIGHTLY easier to use Id play it always.

    So Bryan has to show up to relinquish his title eventually right? Unless Brock really did set a precedent on how long you can go between defenses.

    So I was listening the the Observer radio show on Sirius yesterday and apparently WWE still hasn't fixed the problem of people signing up for free months on the Network using different emails? Really?

    As a loyal subscriber since its inception, please fix this shit Hunter or whoever. Do whatever Netfilx does.

    WWE doesn't really do the network's technical side, MLB Advanced Media does.

    Fair enough but they should still try and make sure stuff like that can't happen.

    Also, given the number of e-mails they keep sending to my cancelled account (we switched to the Rogers version just because we get 50% off thanks to my wife), they'll gladly give you the free month anyway if you'll just please please please please come back to WWE Network!

    Well I don't have as much of an issue with that honestly, so long as they make sure that deal isn't abused.

    I don't think they are ready to pull that trigger yet...which is one of the things that makes me actively wonder if it really is the same injury. If it were more of the same I think it more likely the long term shelving of D-Bry would have happened already.

    If he isn't back till late June he should still be stripped of the title though. With Brock he was never injured.

    If it's abused it's in their favor, so why would they care? 1 person uses 6 different emails for 6 free accounts and 6 free months, that still registers as 6 new subs instead of one

    After the free month does the one guy still have 6 accounts that only costs the 10 per month?

    So I just read about the Hogan/Mania 32 thing. If Hulk is actually getting a true send off and sticks with it, sure why not.
