ok, first things first, AJ has nothing to do with The Sheild, secondly...Damn she plays a better heel. Her mannerisms are perfect for a heel, the sort of plotting, ima get you when you're asleep sort. Unfortunatly this forum won't apprieciate her because she is a woman, no other reason behind it, i've seen enough posts about the women to deduce that a large portion of this forum are sexist assholes who view women as inferior (this obviously doesn't apply to everyone). I'm glad, as a woman, that a woman is getting airtime and shes the best one to do so when it comes to being able to speak. unfortunately they haven't allowed her to show off her ring skills which is a shame because her NXT work was a joy to watch.

now thats out of the way, can we all just get back to talking about The Shield without being morons?
What a goof. Playing the sexist card that the lowest common denominator and thinking THAT's the reason people find her grating and annoying. Hardly surprising coming from the type of person who defended the GM AJ pus and the babyface AJ/Cena/Vickie/Dolph angle to death as being compelling television simply because you were an AJ fan who would literally jump in front of any criticism of your precious woman. People hate this crap, because it's first of all terrible television, not just because it's a woman. This is proven because there are tons of female posters who also loathe AJ and her ridiculous push. And 2nd, it does literally nothing for anybody other than a girl that doesn't even wrestle, nevermind wrestle at the quality level that her push would dictate as a main event level and actively hurts every other character that's involved in angles with her. If there was no AJ push, the incredibly stale Vickie wouldn't even be given this amount of television time since her only purpose is to put over this girl.

I do have one question for anyone who might feel that Dwayne Johnson "owes" the business. Is it just him, or is it anyone who moved on to other things? Should Luna Vachon get heat for running a towing company instead of working on RAW? Should Maven be critiqued on his Home Shopping Network bits instead of wrestling?

Or is it only the ones who go on to highly visible careers in movies that owe something? Why do Johnson (who left after putting people over, doing the traditionally "right thing") and Lesnar (who did not; except for making Eddie a legitimate star) get called sell-outs who "forgot where they came from" when someone who retires to do some regular job get credit (as they should) for moving on and making it without falling into a sea of addiction?
