Sounds like a complete waste of time if your shows are going to be extremely similar to the WWE's shows.
To be fair, is it acceptable to book anyone else to win? In my (quite possibly naive) opinion, if you're not a thuroughly established booker here (along the lines of Wolfy/Legend/Mac/DC/Alcho etc) and you have someone other than those 'Big Five' win, you get grilled with being 'unrealistic' (and judging from the comments, not even they're safe). Even if it's someone somewhat believable, like RVD, Kennedy, or even Christian, it gets hit with the whole 'they wouldn't really win it' feedback from folks.

In the viewpoint of less-established bookers, I can easilly see why they keep the same folks winning it. If a guy as great a booker as Mac is/was and he made a guy outside of the 'Big Five' (Kennedy) win the whole thing and it still got this much heat for it, then of course a not-as-highly-regarded booker isn't gonna take that much of a chance. Now I'm not saying that we should all have AJ Styles some out of nowhere and win the Royal Rumble with absolutely zero build (), but is it seen where I'm coming from...? I don't fear negative backlash, but if possible, I would like to avoid it. Or am I just that much of a pussy...?

I know we all strive to think outside the box here and have it the way we want it, and I know the section endorses said mindset, but quite frankly, after reading some of this, I can easily see why some people don't. And yes, leeroy, this is something we (or at least me, I'll try not to speak for everybody) do for ourselves, but you'd be kidna an ignorant writer to say the words of others don't impact the way you do things, even if it is for yourself.

...*sigh*. Feel free to bash, I guess .

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

AJ Styles debuting and winning was the best piece of comedy I've seen in years.

We would've been more accepting of Kennedy winning in Mac's thread if he hadn't jesus pushed him, the fact he suddenly became 05 Cena outta no where was overkill and that's why there's negative reaction to him winning it.

You look at the realistic winners of a Rumble match tho and Taker, Trips, HBK, Rock, Jericho, Edge, RVD, Christian, Orton, Cena, Batista, Angle, Kane (mainly for teh lulz), Booker and Lesnar (if he's in your thread) are the most likely names coz well, they're the upper carders/main eventers and hence deserve it. If course if you have Goldberg,Austin (before his retirement), Benoit or Eddie (before they die) then they're options too.

There's nothing wrong with the big guys winning it, not at all. I'd rather that then another JESUS PUSH.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

To the Rumble match where Mr. Kennedy won and most of you guys dislike it...

I am just curious why you didn't like it? Is it because how the booker unbelievably pushed Kennedy to the sky just like Vladimir Kozlov giving a trololol guy gimmick or you just dislike Kennedy?

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Fucking haters is why.

EDIT: I didn't get any real negative feedback outside of 'Gade though at the time. At the time, people just appreciated the event/match as a whole. Revisionist history sucks.

EDIT 2: Push would've come off better if I didn't recap a huge chunk of it. Still owned though.

EDIT 3: Kennedy owned. Can't speak on him now. I don't watch wrestling.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

You know I still love you Mac, and had you not recapped that large chunk and sped to the Rumble, the push would've felt more convincing

Now come back to BTB you awesome person you <3.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Love you too. You're like the Australian brother I always wanted but could never have because you're half way around the world.

I'm retired like Brett Favre... for real though this time, before I embarrass myself on the field and look like an old man, who's got nothing left.

Does posting in this thread every couple of weeks count as a comeback?

I have no idea how this RR question started, but... push whomever you want and gives not a fuck what anybody thinks. But make the actual match awesome, and everyone will praise you for it... until two or three years later or so.
