Re: This is why the WWE stinks in 2012: last minute changes by Vince

It amazes me that an giant corporate entertainment company worth hundreds of millions of dollars can put a show on pay-per-view and the outcome of a storyline with its main character can be changed on a whim the day of the show by a single person.

This is not just specific to this report, which may or may not be true, but in general, it is as good as a fact that Vince can and has changed the end of main-events on the day, and even while the show is happening.

the original idea could have been Punk or Ryback winning clean... Just imagine the whining on this forum then...

Trust me the way it ended at HiaC was probably one of the best possibilities.

1. Don't believe everything you read. For all we know the last minute change was to have the ref low blow Ryback rather than hitting him with a chair or something.

2. Last minute changes happen all the time and have happened in the past (including the 90s).

3. This was a difficult match for them to book, it's understandable that making a decision wouldn't be easy.

4. If you think about it for a minute, this was the best decision to make and it worked out fine as it provided an interesting and exciting piece of storytelling to finish the PPV.

But obviously you have a better idea, so please tell us what your great idea is.

Not quite. Russo would have come out, raised the cell, put the title on a pole, DQ'd Punk and Ryback, brought out HHH and and Taker, have them fight for it, have 20 run ins from various people historically and currently allied to both wrestlers, stop the match three times, then have Samuel L Jackson knock HHH and Taker out and win the title.

Will mark for Father Ted references.

You know I thought that PPV was pretty iffy based on nearly all matches were sloppy.

Ryback losing, no matter how he redeemed himself after the match, really hurt his character going forward.

I just have a feeling that Maddox low blowing Ryback won't ever get explained just as last year's HIAC had "someone raising the cage", which we never got a reason for / person to blame.

Re: This is why the WWE stinks in 2012: last minute changes by Vince

Funny thing, in today's awareness of wrestling..... does a loss really matter anymore? Look at Del Rio... loses a million times, still booked in upper mid or main event matches.


WISH LIST

A new, 44th WWE Champion [x]
Daniel Bryan, SummerSlam 2013. Then Orton won it and the WWE was like

SmackDown moves to live Thursdays []
Cena is not in a title match nor a main event at WrestleMania []
Raw returns to two hours, instead of three []

Can we have a 'How I would improve the WWE...' sticky? Seriously. Not moaning about this thread because it seems there are many legitimate gripes about this company, and I have some thoughts of my own but don't feel like creating another thread about it.

The finish wasn't even that bad, feel free to enlighten me on what should have happened to end the match?

Eat. Sleep. Break the Streak.
