    I saw the first episode of Camp WWE. It had some silly moments, but mostly it seems like it's trying way too hard at "oooh, let's be edgy and adult and cuss and stuff."

    The SyFy is advertising a two-hour version of Monday Night Raw, airing from 8-10PM ET tonight. The replay is also being advertised for next week. At this time, WWE has not sent out any sort of press release or made an official announcement on the replay. More on the story as it develops.

    The hell???

    yeah, him too. they're all listed just for one ep. I suppose I can just keep watching haha, I guess the characters don't appear or IMDB is incorrect. I was just worried someone else voiced the characters in later eps.

    thanks.

    yeah it made me laugh but it's the same type of humor I'm used to in animation and it has not appealed to me over the years. I'm not an adult swim person.

    it being WWE related does go a long way. I'll probably watch them all eventually but I was really hoping it would grab me.

    so owens is the first person since taker to be on every ppv their first year on the roster. charlotte is heading towards being the third.

    pretty cool

    edit - I only know the name brian kendrick from the thread talking about him training people. just saw a news post about paul london saying together they have the tag reign record. should I go back to watch? were they awesome? I am entirely unexposed. I've heard the named but never knew they had the belts let alone a record.

    Brian Kendrick and Paul London are two phenomenal wrestlers and a great tag team that was super underutilized as tag champs (they were the Smackdown champs and had defenses like once ever 3 PPVs).

    If you want Kendrick stuff, check out his THE Brian Kendrick stuff because it is the best.

    I've only seen one ep of Camp WWE so far, and I like it. The voice acting is the big draw for me, though -- mostly for the ones who play themselves, but I like hearing whoever it is impersonating Triple H-ah's mannerisms-ah.

    I did like the Sgt. Slaughter bits in the first ep, too. Just waiting for that signal...

    I also like Undertaker's character there.

    WWE also seems to be posting the Hulu cut of RAW on Youtube 1 day afterwards. Cut is 1h30mins exactly. (A full RAW without commercials is about 2h10mins)

    Maybe they have renegotiated rerun rights and are spreading them more?

    Camp has been okay for me. The guy doing HHH's voice makes me laugh every time-ah. I don't want to laugh at little Austin as much as I do. Paige wasn't as foul mouthed as I thought she would be.

    All the more reason for her to wrestle there. You want a female babyface to replace Bayley, there you go.

    That reminds me - after attending NXT Seattle I'm much more on board with Joe than I used to be. I liked him OK on television but he never really stood out for me as more than a generic submission/bruiser type. Something about his style works better live, I think. He seems more menacing in person.

    Also even better live than on TV: Alexa. Her gimmick is delightful but a little cartoonish on TV, but it's _perfect_ for playing to the cheap seats.

    I love nia jax and I absolutely do not want her to beat asuka right now

    In my dream world, Asuka just keeps the belt until she quits NXT to save the Earth in the Universe Wrestling Promotion by beating a Predator and Alien in a handicap match.

    You think this up and NOT reference Wrasslor?

    I've never seen or cared about Dexter's Lab, so I don't dream about it.

    Maybe it's a compromise for those who only want a 2 hour Raw. But a replay on a Friday night, I hope they don't expect high Neilson numbers.

    Could be just an experiment as well.

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    Yeah seems like a weirdly irrelevant move since the Hulu cut exists

    Like

    Is there really a big enough cross section between people that want to watch a 2 hour version of Raw and people that refuse to sign up for Hulu or watch on YouTube but also have cable packages that get Syfy

    I guess so but it doesn't seem like a huge deal to me outside of the weirdness of Raw being on two networks

  • SproutSprout Registered User regular
    I'm guessing SyFy had a hole in their schedule they needed to fill, and this was a cheap way to do it.

  • NiryaNirya Registered User regular
    It's probably just a super-cheap move for NBC Universal to do, and WWE gets some more money for essentially the same content, so it's win-win.

    Apparently there was a scrapped Marvel vs. WCW comic in the 90s that would have had Sting vs. Spider-Man, Bret Hart vs. Captain America, Hulk Hogan vs. Hulk and Chris Benoit vs. Wolverine

    Bret Hart vs Captain America is inspired, so I'll just assume Marvel came up with that one.
