Would WWE benefit from an increased focus on managers with wrestlers?

Yes.

Why?

Managers used to be a pretty important staple in WWE, you have the likes of Bobby Heenan, Paul Bearer, Ted DiBiase and Paul Heyman. All of who are very successful managers and have a made a name for themselves in the business. Heyman is still a major part of the wrestling business today. Whilst Managers are still around, they are not as much of an integral part of WWE as they used to be. The managers they do have however, have potential. For example, Zeb Colter who is managing the Real Americans (Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro) plays his role to perfection and brings a nice dynamic to the team. He has the ability to make people hate him and is very creative with what he says and does to gain heat. A team like the Real Americans, need an extra boost to bring interest in the team. With Colter managing them, I have grown to appreciate the team more and could see them as future WWE Tag Team Champions.

Another Manager still around is Paul Heyman, a well known figure in Wrestling and an integral figure of ECW. In more recent times, he has managed the likes of Brock Lesnar and CM Punk, who are both top stars in WWE. CM Punk continues to be on the rise, whilst Lesnar has returned better than ever. Heyman has always had brilliance, and has been able to make most of the Wrestlers he's managed shine better than ever. He has a certain aura about him that cannot be matched, and he knows exactly how to draw a reaction from the fans. Having a Manager can help define a star and sometimes it's just what a wrestler needs by their side. There are tons of potential in the WWE and a ton of new stars, who could benefit strongly from some form of Manager.

An example of this is Wade Barrett. He's currently not appearing on Television, and when he started he was being debated as a potential World Heavyweight Champion. Barrett has brilliant intensity, and is able to hold his own in the ring with top stars, but he's not been able to get off his feet. Having a Manager by his side, could be just the boost Barrett needs to finally make a real name for himself. Personally, I have always visioned Heyman taking Barrett under his wing and making him shine, because being with just Heyman alone is a great rub for most wrestlers and it gives them an open door to walk through and make the most of the opportunity to show what they're made of. Barrett has the look, the ability and great mic skills but he just needs that extra edge. That's most Wrestlers need, to take themselves up to the next level.

I feel Managers should become a major staple once again in WWE, at times WWE has hit gold with their choice of Manager. Before AW was fired, he was a great addition to The Primetime Players consisting of Darren Young and Titus O'Neil and as I mentioned earlier, Zeb Colter has taken the Real Americans to a new level. There a ton of wrestlers also, with top notch wrestling ability, but not so great mic skills. Having a Manager by their side, means they can keep it short and sweet whilst the Manager does the important parts. An example of this is Lesnar and Heyman, Lesnar has never been known to have fantastic mic skills, more of a beast in the ring. Heyman did the talking, whilst Lesnar did the fighting. That's how a Manager can make a difference.



The above is an example of the chemistry Lesnar and Heyman have, and how a Manager can get across with better execution what a Wrestler wants to say. I feel WWE would benefit greatly, with more of a focus on Managers, but they have to make sure that chemistry is there. Without it, you soon see the downsides to a pairing, a recent example is Curtis Axel and Paul Heyman. Heyman is a proven successful manager, but the two did not have chemistry and therefore Axel didn't show success. It was a mismatch that didn't work. WWE has the potential for a ton of brilliant pairings, with the talent they have available. It just has to flow correctly.

Should more title changes occur at house shows???

That has been a question that a lot of people have probably going back and forth on for the past couple of years. I for one think that it wouldn't be a bad idea at all. For me, if I spend my hard earned money and notice on the card Del Rio is facing Cena in the main event, I wouldn't mind having the champ drop the title. It would create a lot of buzz on social media, and generate excitement from the fans who saw it live. The last title change I can remember at a house show was a few years ago, I believe the tag team titles changed hand. I believe The Miz was involved. I am not saying every house show titles change hands, but keep things fresh and exciting so the old saying "you never know what can happen" can come to light. Often times house show matches are practice for feuds on tv or ppv, there may be DQ endings but nothing of note really ever happens.

Of course the WWE would have to acknowledge the title changes on tv, but I do believe they bring cameras to house shows so that really should't be a problem for them to capture video. Maybe they could even show it on the lovely WWE App. I would like to think that maybe one or two title changes a month at house shows would be good for business. Just have some excitement for the fans in attendance. One thought I just had would be to possibly bring NXT on the road for house shows only. And have the main feuds continue on the WWE circuit and having NXT titles change hands might be good for business. Or if nothing else have the WWE Universe talking about the next great up and comer. So in closing, yes more title changes should occur at house shows because I know I would like I got my moneys worth if something exciting happened at the show I attended.

Should WWE Titles Change Hands At WWE Live Events?


WWE over the years has produced smaller, more interactive live events across the country. These events will take place in-between Television and PPV’s events in smaller venues all across the country and all around the world. These live events, or sometimes known as house shows, feature many Championship decisions. This is so the audience in attendance can become emotionally involved into the product they are being presented and stay invested throughout the event.


While a handful of times, WWE/WWF has seen title changes occur at these live events, This is truly a rare occasion especially in the last 20 years (before that, most title changes occurred at a live event), as a WWE title doesn’t often change hands at a house show. The retired WWE World Tag Team Championships changed 13 times from 1992 till 2010 at WWE House Shows. The last time a WWE title changed hands at a live event was 2008 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.


This being said, since Live Events are used more for advancement of WWE’s product, important decisions should not be contested at these events as they are not widely televised or are the results even shown onto WWE.com. While some may say that Titles holders not changing decreases the importance of the matches at the live events, and also may decrease the interest and unpredictability of the WWE’s product. The “larger than life” entertainment that can be seen at these shows is more than enough to keep the fans engaged into the product.


The answer is no. We have seen over the years hundreds and thousands of people attend WWE events. No matter the cause. If WWE comes to an area, everyone in a 100 mile radius who can afford the expense of the trip will be there and will be engaged and interactive. This has been proven with arenas selling out WWE’s shows all across the world for many, many years. This has also been the case with the current format of no title changes. I do not believe that attendance would jump or fall if championships began to change hands at the event. The larger than life, family oriented product the WWE produces on a day to day basis is more than enough to draw people to their shows, whether the event is for 1,000 people or 100,000 people.

Should more title changes occur on house shows?
I don’t think you could be able to logically approach title changes occurring at House Show’s on a consistent basis. It’s never been a consistent practice for a reason. House Shows are a cheaper way for fans to see their favorite wrestlers in person and perform for them. When title matches occur on House Show’s it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that the champion will retain and with that said sure you could say that by having a title change on a House Show it would provide some more unpredictability and excitement to them, but is it really worth it?
One of the criticisms WWE faces today is that the titles aren’t valued enough and this surely wouldn’t help that issue. With the midcard titles such as the Intercontinental Title, United States, and Tag Titles rarely ever receiving the air time plus storylines they deserve, having those titles switch hands on unaired matches would further devalue them and give fans less of a reason to care for them if they aren’t going to bother televising those switching hands. Out of those three titles the tag titles are receiving more storylines and airtime than they’ve received in quite some time and you don’t want to stop its momentum like that.
Then there are the World Titles, the most prestigious in the WWE. When you hold them you represent the company to its highest degree. In short they are the most important thing in the company. By having these two titles switch hands on house show’s you not only undermine the champion but you undermine the title and the current storyline revolving the title. The World and WWE title are usually involved in the matches that are set up to draw in buyers for the monthly PPV’s (san the occasional Brock vs ____ match) so the WWE aren’t doing themselves any favors by basically saying We’re going to give this match away not only on a non PPV event but on a UNAIRED event.
Would the title switching hands on House Shows bring more excitement to House Shows? Yes, will it outside of that bring every negative thought you could think of by doing it? Yes.

Well at least that's a better turnout than the last one

Gonna remove the hide tags now. I'll have a quick read tomorrow and then decide who gets the free spot on the TDL X Card. Can't promise I'll have time for feedback because I'm pretty swamped myself right now but I'll try and give something. Doubt it'll be detailed though, just basic feedback. Greg said he'd give feedback too. If any other judges can give feedback then that would be wonderful. Don't need to worry so much about an actual winner, more about individual feedback.

TAR said he was busy fyi and Mav said he'd submit later so he can get feedback at least. Guessing Comedy Inc. is a likely no-show if he gets on a main card At least I know now rather than then.

Did the ICC make the correct decision in choosing to fine Michael Clarke over his comment to Jimmy Anderson?

Were the International Cricket Council correct in their decision to fine Michael Clarke over his comment to Jimmy Anderson? The answer is clearly and definitely NO.

The incident which occurred between Clarke and Anderson was as a result on-field sledging. Sledging is not just limited to cricket; it exists in many other sports. It aims to rattle the opponents to the point that they can make a mistake that benefits your team. In my personal experience, the practice of sledging hasn’t been a malice affair of insults, but rather sound banter between sides that adds to the appeal of playing the game.

The back and forth nature of the banter involved in sledging is an on-field representation of the banter shared between supporters in the crowd. Sitting next to the infamous Barmy Army at the SCG in 2011 was a pleasant, yet humbling experience. Naturally it’s expected to be carried over onto the pitch, I mean, it’s international competition, playing for your country, and you want that advantage over your opponents. There have been some classic instances of sledging in cricket in recent years. Mark Waugh, in speaking to English bowler James Ormond, was heard saying, “Mate, what are you doing here? There’s no way you’re good enough to play for England.” To which the Brit casually replied, “Maybe not, but at least I’m the best player in my family.” (a reference to Mark’s more skilled brother, Steven).

The Anderson/Clarke incident was spurred on by Australia looking to pressure England for the last remaining wicket to clinch victory in the first test. Tensions were high, as was the atmosphere. Anderson was engaging in banter with fielder George Bailey, to which Anderson is said to have stated, “I want to punch you” to which Clarke was quick to run in with a retort of “get ready to have your arm broken.” Now on one hand, the general viewing public would be apathetic about the situation – a threat of physical violence on the sporting field, but it should not have even been heard. Channel 9, the host broadcaster of the Ashes series, has a censorship involved in the broadcasting of the stump microphone due to the language and content being discussed in the heat of the moment of the game. If this phrase from Clarke was not picked up by the microphone, then the ICC would not have reacted at all, let alone with a heavy fine to Clarke, as it would have been another instance of on-field banter.

The ICC are ass backwards and couldn’t organise a root in a brothel, so it makes perfect sense that they did fine Michael Clarke, but the decision was far from correct. It was laughably wrong.
