Most John Cena and Punk threads are a gold mind for Smarkiness.
I love it how it lasted just one minute.

I accept rep.

Whats yours?
That's nothing. I love when posters say "He's a good hand."
I mean, really? A good "hand"?

First of all that's what a promoter might say of his worker and second of all that's really old-school, southern-type wrestling lingo, meaning that I doubt it's used much by anyone these days (except maybe your Dusty Rhodes').

You want a good hand? Look no further.


Now that right there...

That's a good hand!

On a separate topic, when Randy Orton goes for or performs the RKO, there's the smark that must call it "the cutter".

I read something like this once..

"Stop screwing around and just hit the damn cutter!" This shit makes me chuckle. OK, I know it's technically a 'cutter' but just call it the RKO. It's less to type and read!

Interestingly enough I have less problems when people want to call a clothesline a lariat.

Re: The smarkiest comment you've ever read on WF

Personally, I can't stand all the ratings talk. I know it's not 'smarky' to talk about ratings (or is it?) but it really grinds my gears.

So many variables! Just because more people happened to be watching a certain channel at a certain time doesn't mean the superstars in the ring at that time made out through the TV and said 'hey! turn over to USA, I'm doing my thing!'

last time I said something like this I got negged *puts up dukes*

Too many to count. The ratings arguments and the way that everyone acts like their opinions can't be wrong top everything though.

Re: The smarkiest comment you've ever read on WF

The ratings are another sign of a smark. As is who does and doesn't draw. At the end of the day, what affect does it have on us, its not like its money that goes in and out of our pocket.

Smarks have always been marks, it's just sad when you get the occasional individual that doesn't realise it.

But the one someone said about when people pretend like they're actually a part of it is the main one to me. I mean there's always the supposition and educated guess, but when people insist on things like "X would never let Y go over him it's in his hometown!" or things like that. Or better yet, "if they tried to get X to do Y there's no way he'd stick around. He would absolutely leave."

Anyone who slates a wrestler for ratings rather than just general entertainment.

Re: The smarkiest comment you've ever read on WF

Can't remember anything specific but basically any of the people who think they know more about wrestling than the rest of us because they can name 500 obscure Japanese wrestlers and their grandmothers.

People who argue about "the biggest draw in history." That should never factor into a fan's opinion of who the best ever is. The best ever is subjective, based on who entertained you the most throughout the years. For me the best ever is The Undertaker. Someone else could say the best ever is Scotty 2 Hotty and their opinion would be no less valid than mine.

All the people who've turned on Bryan and Punk because they've made it to the big leagues. I've seen quite a few people saying CM Punk is a bad wrestler. What a ridiculous statement to make. I've never seen anyone claim Bryan can't wrestle, but since he's been in the main event the smarks feel the need to remind everyone about the aforementioned 500 obscure Japanese wrestlers who are better than him.

All the people who care about ratings. I don't even know how the ratings system works, and it's none of my business. Why should I care how much money WWE is making from a show? Fans of a show like The Simpsons don't go rushing to check ratings after every episode.

"Cena can't wrestle" advocates. He's proven you wrong time and time again. He can wrestle. End of story.

People who complain when WWE bring in legends for shows like Mania because they shoud be "building new stars" instead. Mania is the biggest show of the year. A lot of people who don't normally watch wrestling watch Mania. What are they more likely to want to see: Undertaker vs Triple H or Sami Zayn vs Antonio Cesaro? Obviously the former.

To summarise, basically anyone who cares about the inner workings of the business despite having no stake in it. Just sit back and enjoy the show. It doesn't affect you if ratings are down from last week. If you can't enjoy the show, don't watch it.

That's just how the IWC is. Most of the times that posters get involved in an argument, they try to win by arguing what's best for business.

Re: The smarkiest comment you've ever read on WF

The crazy thing about using ratings is that the majority of people that use that in their argument don't realize how those ratings are compiled or the purpose.


For example, people bash Diesel's title reign for low ratings/buyrates, ignoring the fact that he rarely worked RAW and the overall shitness of the product. I may be in the minority but I was under the impression that it takes 2 to tango.


Another example is CM Punk's title reign. People bashed him for low ratings, ignoring the fact that Punk always had the highest rated segment of the show, the exception probably being the 6 man with Ryder & Bryan, which is understandable because of the holidays.


And people using ratings in their argument are selective with when they use it. If it supports them, it's fact. If it doesn't, THEN AND ONLY THEN is it irrelevant. They tell me that it's human nature.


I can't lie and say I don't talk about ratings but I'm probably one of the least biased users on this forum. And I don't use ratings, buyrates or drawing at all to support why I think my favorite is GOAT or anything similar. I just enter those kind of threads and tell it like it is: if you use ratings to toot this guys horn, look at the bigger picture and the breakdowns to see who really had the highest rated segment. If you use ratings to shit on this guy, again, look at the bigger picture and the breakdowns to see who really had the lowest rated segment.


Instead, those who get their dick hard about what a percentage of 25,000 other people like are selective, reach, don't understand how and what the ratings are compiled and used for and in all reality, want to sound smarter than others and ratings is the only thing that they have to attempt to back up their argument.
