Do You Think The Promos Are Too Overscripted?

It's no secret that the wrestlers scripts are are extremely major but do you think that it hurts certain wrestlers at that fact? Now i agree with the promos being scripted to a certain extinct but i don't think they should be scripted as heavy as it is.

Way too scripted, it feels like they're all the same. Imagine how much it would have hindered Rock/Jericho/Austin, that's what it's doing to the guys now.

Re: Do You Think The Promos Are To Overscripted?

Obviously they are, it's a gigantic problem. The other of course being, all the good talkers aren't getting much mic time except Punk. All the shit ones have to take that time. Combine the two and you get a complete disaster.

Re: Do You Think The Promos Are To Overscripted?

Yes 95% of stuff said on WWEtv feels scripted and none of it feels real. If it was any other TV show it would be ridiculed for it's unbelievability (no wonder it's not respected by the real world of entertainment.)

The only person who makes it feel real most of the time is Punk,Everybody else is just meh.

Re: Do You Think The Promos Are To Overscripted?

I'd say so. But by far the main culprits are the promos involving AJ. Any segment involving her is unbearably dragged out.

Re: Do You Think The Promos Are To Overscripted?

Like others said, nothing feels natural anymore. Punk's promos are probably the only promos that feel natural and that's partly because of his delivery. Everything else seems fake, and forced. The fake hollywood scripted backstage segments are the same way.

I agree people shit on cm punk alot about being overrated but no matter if you like him or not you can't deny the fact that he makes the shit sound legit.

Re: Do You Think The Promos Are Too Overscripted?

Yeah, that's why most promos sound so monotone. It's just damn obvious the delivering person is memorizing a script that it sucks out all the enjoyment out of it. As much as I hate Punk, he's definitely one of the best at making it feel more real and he's a natural talker so even if scripted, he probably wont have to try long to remember it. Other than him, John Cena doesn't sound like a cue card reader (the best talker in the biz today IMO) but most others are given too little freedom or are just terrible.

Re: Do You Think The Promos Are Too Overscripted?

Absolutely. This is what happens when you have prolonged monologues and dialogue on live television. When I was kid everybody got that 10-15 second window to talk, if you were good you got about 45 seconds. Curt Hennig could do more in less than a minute on the mic than these cats can do in 10 minutes now. That's a shame, very few guys have that natural ability to talk and it looks weak to try and force that talent or god forbid you make them take speech or acting classes *coughVINCEcough*
