I'm glad you asked this, because it's one of the most annoying things about the BTB section and its bookers.

I shouldn't really be surprised, seeing as most of the people on this forum are McMahon-bots anyway - just programmed to like and dislike whatever he tells them - but it infuriates me when I see people suddenly de-pushing a wrestler just because he's being jobbed out or has been released in real life.

A few years ago, people couldn't get enough of Mr. Kennedy. He was the guy with great mic skills with limited in-ring ability, but no one really cared. Fast forward a couple of years, Vince, Orton & co. have decided they don't like him, and all of a sudden he's the worst fucking thing since The Great Khali. And oh look, Vince has himself a new mic worker who can't do shit in the ring. And oh look, everyone's suddenly saying how great he is and giving him pushes in their thread. It's The Miz in case you were wondering.

It's the same reason you won't see many more pushes for guys like MVP or Shelton Benjamin anymore, but you will suddenly see a plethora of Ron Killings pushes because Vince suddenly decided he liked this guy.

Just sloppy and lazy booking. Why would I want to read a thread that is doing the exact same as in real life?

I've always disliked Kennedy. Stoj has always thought I'm out of my mind for it too.

It would still be better than infernal Shane Helms pushes. Why people think he is even an upper-midcard level talent I have no idea.

I agree with what you're saying. I had plans with MVP before he got released and I don't intend to change them.

However, I think the Miz is superior to Kennedy on the mic. I don't watch much TNA, but Kennedy does seem better in that than he was in WWE. That's one of the few positive things I could say about TNA, they seem to be getting more from Kennedy. In WWE I just thought he was so-so, and the only time I really thought he shone was his feud with Regal (from what I saw of him in WWE).

I have yet to see a thread where Mr. Kennedy ISN'T pushed in any shape or form, other than Nige's thread.
