    PWInsider reported that WWE has offered a contract to Sara Del Rey. Rejoice or something.

    Also they signed some Matt Taven fellow.

    I can't wait to see her get a small push and then be jobbing to Kelly Kelly a few months later.

    Kelly's gone dude. Jobbing to Layla maybe but at least that should be a good match.

    Really, outside of Aksana, Eve and Alicia Fox, most of the Diva roster now actually has some amount of wrestling talent. Those first two are in more manager/non-wrestler positions and... well Alicia Fox may drag the average talent level down quite badly, I will admit.

    Here is a complete list of all the indy names signed today and over the weekend to developmental deals with WWE.

    -International star PAC was signed to a deal. He is known for his high-flying and is billed as "The Man That Gravity Forgot". He most recently appeared for Dragon Gate in the US and Japan.

    -Matt Taven was signed and is going through testing. He worked a dark match at the most recent FCW TV taping and has previously appeared for ROH and DGUSA.

    -Sara Del Rey is going through medical testing. She has been one of the top female indy workers of the past several years and has had runs in SHIMMER, CHIKARA and Ring of Honor.

    -Mercedes Martinez is also rumored to have been offered a deal after recent WWE tryouts at developmental.

    A lot of the top independent talents are being signed as part of Triple H's plan to overhaul the developmental system.

    And HHH slowly taking over WWE is a bad thing how now?

    Layla is not anything close to a good wrestler. She is better than she used to be but that just means she's gone from shit to incredibly mediocre.

    She put on some good PPV matches since she came back. Except at No Way Out, for some reason both Layla and Beth were off their games that night.

    Your definition of "good" I now call into question.

    "good" does not mean "not awful" it means "good". Layla's best work is still painfully mediocre.

    wirehead's definition of "good" has long been ridiculed

    I'd like to think I can recognize a good wrestling match. As for my other opinions, I don't consider Ryback's matches "good", not by a long shot but I do think he has a lot of potential and I hope WWE pairs him with a big star soon. If he flops, at least they tried. If it works, they have a new star and they could really use more of those nowadays.

    ryback matches ARE good, given what they're going for

    they're not trying to put on 30 minute iron man matches

  • MichelanvaloMichelanvalo Registered User regular
    Layla is not a great wrestler, but she has the looks and personality to be entertaining. She's far more entertaining than half of the Divas roster.

    I'd be willing to bet that if you gave her and Beth 10 minutes, they could put together an entertaining match. Beth dragged a pair of them out of Melina, after all, and Melina was atrocious.

    Ric Flair will not be wrestling at the JCW Gathering of the Juggalos event. He will host the Main Stage according to JCW announcer Kevin Gill's Twitter. The actual wrestling shows and matches will be announced later

    He'll be eaten alive at that event.

    While I'm happy that SDR is signing with WWE, it kinda spoils her Chikara Grand Championship match with Eddie Kingston at the end of the month.

    I love Ryback so much

    They tried the same thing with the Funkasaurus but he's basically not intense enough to pull off how dominant he needs to be

    my favorite thing about how much he has the character down is how he bobs his head along with his entrance music

    25Mj5br.png
  • LuxLux Registered User regular
    His entrance taunt is awkward.

  • wirehead26wirehead26 Registered User regular
    Ryback needs to change his finisher though. WWE really needs to ease up on some of their move restrictions like the sit-out powerbomb, that move would be perfect for him.

    Speaking of that move, why did Batista never perfrom it right? Was it his decision or WWE's?

    I'M NOT FINISHED WITH YOU!!!
  • WeedLordVegetaWeedLordVegeta Registered User regular
    his finisher is fine, especially because it allows him some time to taunt the jobbers he's destroying by marching around

    I mean I get why they won't allow piledrivers but I really miss the traditional death valley driver. Yeah it kinda dumps you on your head but why don't they, you know, TRAIN the guys to perform and take it safely?

    because training doesn't guarantee safety??????

    mistakes happen, especially at the end of matches when guys are fatigued

    but messing up certain moves is much more likely to cause head trauma

    I'm going with EWR 4.2 to keep things simple. I fully expect this playthrough to crash and burn almost immediately.

    I know that was just a moves video (and some of them were repeats IMO), but is there any evidence that PAC is more than just a spot monkey gymnast?

    Most of his work in Dragon Gate. The fact that he's dragged good to great matches out of, among other people, Sterling James Keenan (who is very hit and miss, even though I love him to bits), Teddy Hart and Trent Acid during his drugged up and not giving a fuck phase.
    Also there are no bad English wrestlers. This is a fact. >.>

    I watched Destination X. It was okay I guess. I definitely approve of both champion choices, especially putting the X-Division belt on Shiima.

    I'm playing with EWR 4.2 right now.

    This shit is not simple.

    Granted, the last time I played this it was EW running in a DOS window that had the members of KISS as cheat codes.

    Edit: Looking at Wikipedia, it looks like I started with EW 9000 in '98 or '99.

    So I started off creating the promotion with really humble stats. Imagine it had been funded here and on Kickstarter. We also have a weekly show on PATV called W*ANGseday Night WAR. Name subject to change.

    pePcu.png

    The first thing that struck me is that we will quickly have no money so the thing I did was go secure some sponsors. Our main sponsor is Sirius Radio with $50,000 per show. Unfortunately the next two highest paying sponsors are Keystone Light and Jack Daniels at $40,000 and $15,000 a piece. With all that cheap beer flowing through our audience we're going to need a sponsor like Urine Gone, I saw that name and picked the fuck out of that. Their pitch line is "Spray it on and it's gone!" I don't know what kind of insane wizards dedicate their time to ridding the world of urine but it's a noble cause and they're giving us $5,000 per show. Also we're lowering the advertising rate to 5%.

    Urine-money in hand I went and hired some staff. Now, my unpaid assistant Sophie tells me "On a scale of 1-100 we're looking for people at about a 40." Great. So I snatched up Anne Gogolok and a woman named Tegan as my referees. Tegan has no last name so I can only assume I'm going to be paying her under the table. Thomas Giesen runs our entire production at $14,000 a month and we have a couple writers. Fuck all that though, the best option the game gave me for medical personal is a 33 year old named Booty Bangin' Nurse T. So prepare to see somebody die when they get injured.

    Speaking of workers, we need 12 of them. Nobody working under a written contract or with a stat of 51 or more overness will talk to us. So what kind of promotion are we going to put together? Got any specific indie guys we should pick up? Here's a list of the most talented workers we can afford.

    edit: even shorter version of the list.
