Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think with house shows the pressure's off and people relax and interact with the crowd more, especially on Raw if you're not a featured part of the show you're lucky if your match goes 5 minutes and people try to make as good an impression as they can in the limited time they get. With House Shows the wrestlers can relax and focus on entertaining just as much as putting on good-great matches.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I thought Darren Young was good as the babyface vs Regal, but I'm not (or "wasn't") liking him as the heel vs Regal and Striker. No idea why I watched NXT in the first place, I think I'm masochistic with my eyes and I am with the rest of my body but that's a different story =)

Yeah maybe, its just peculiar since the very concept for a House show (other than making money) is to pretty much test what works with the crowd so you can use it on TV. I remember once my buddies went to a WWE house show in Duluth (I had to work DAMMIT) and there was a PPV the next week and it was a Eddie/RVD match and they pretty much were calling most of the spots before they happened on the PPV.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Its actually been good as a version of 2009 superstars this season, there was a brief spell where Superstars was just divas matches and matches featuring Nexus, JTG and other lesser workers and instead Kidd feuded with Tatsu on NXT and they had some really good matches with the odd match also being on Superstars.

Apparently Kidd and Barreta had a real good match this week on NXT, Barreta bumps like a freak for a Kidd brainbuster and also hits a bonkers whisper in the win off a guardrail. Think Seabs on the other forum mentioned it was a real good match in his Smackdown review.

Yeah McQueen I get what you mean, I'm guessing the extra freedom and creativity may just appeal to some of the better workers who get to basically try out and plan spots for future matches that they wouldn't normally get to do on TV. I think the likes of Regal and Bourne though naturally work better in House Shows since Regal can really play a better character and put on a show, and Bourne can run through some great spots that he won't be able to use on TV every week whilst getting more time to play a really good cheesy babyface and do some comedy spots and interact with the crowd. Punk's amazing in House Shows as well, especially as a Heel.

Good thought. Its too bad that might be accurate. I know WWE claims to not only just focus on the wrestling, but they would really benefit if their programs had noteworthy matches weekly. Especially if the roster gets chances to shine and give us something more. Let Tyson Kidd have a good night vs Punk or Cena. He doesn't have to win. Let them work in the ring with time and no pressure and i'm sure the product can just be that much more fun. Having everyone grow and develop can only be positive. Maybe some aren't a fan of Kidd's like I am, nonetheless, you get my point here.

WWE should book Yoshihiro Takayama for one night only at Wrestlemania and have him beat the shit out of The Rock and/or HHH.

IMO

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah part of WWE's problem is how many matches they give away on TV and then do later on PPV where the heat is barely greater than it was when we got it for free. I'm a big fan of heels agreeing to a big match on TV against a face before ducking out and subbing a midcard workhorse who could benefit with working a top face for a good amount of time, Ziggler's looked really great whenever he's faced Orton this year and had a really great match with Cena on Raw during that infamous Raw where Vickie got unreal heat even for her.


McQueen why would you get my hopes out like that ya bastard. Rock attempting the people's elbow only to catch a running kneelift from Takayama would make me lose my shit. Actually imagine Takayama vs Bourne.....FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

My problem with WWE is how protected some of the guys are (ORTON). Lets have him fued with the midcarder who needs to be a top heel on the brand that needs starpower and not let the guy win once against Orton.

Smackdown puts on better matches/overall shows than both Raw and Impact. I'd love for WWE to air FCW, NXT and Superstars on the new WWE Network next year so I'd actually watch the shows because I would at least have them recorded to my DVR.


Much gratitude to

Loved the Ziggler vs Orton match. Ziggler vs Cena from late last year delivered too. Only part of the reason why he should be in the WWE picture atm. Great worker, imo.

Subbing out the major heels for other heels is exactly right. Del Rio can back out of something vs Punk come this monday, then Punk has to duke it out Drew McIntyre or someone. A good way to utilize a good part of the roster if you ask me.

EDIT ~ Yeah, fuck Orton hard for that. Rhodes losing even though he is the best heel on Smackdown that isn't named Mark Henry. Real smart.
