Default Best for Business is Bad Business apparently

they keep having this "best for business" storyline, but in reality its bad business...this main angle makes no sense. so its good business to strip the hero of the title and screw him over twice and make him look weak and turn people off to the pay per views? that's good business sense? are they trying to lose business? because the last couple Raws have made everyone want to turn on Football. they're sabotaging their business, does anyone else agree?

I can see how after the PG Era you might think that good business=smiling faces winning all the time, but it doesn't.

This story line is getting pretty good ratings the last I heard. The ratings dip because of MNF every year anyhow.

If you take what you said about "stripping the hero of the title and screwing him over twice" in a kayfabe sense, that's sorta the point. This is supposed to lead to Vince McMahon coming back to television and turning baby face when he makes his realization known that HHH and Stephanie aren't ruling the show the way it should be run. Otherwise, I don't think it makes Daniel Bryan look bad. He's the under dog here, he's supposed to have every obstacle put in his way to make things look unfair for him (being stripped of the belt and accused of being in cahoots with a referee, taking the usual beating, etc.) and also to give him something to fight against and overcome. Orton is trying to get as much heat as possible with this resurgence of his Viper persona and I think they succeeded with that tonight.

That would be one of the most god awfully stupid things that could happen in this story. Vince McMahon comes back and turns babyface to side with Bryan, the guy who he spent weeks upon weeks in the summer telling the audience at home not to take seriously because he was an undeserving, ugly, short little goblin with a toothpick physique that had absolutely no business competing for the top title in the company. IIRC, he said that if Bryan won the title, the WWE would go out of business, or something to that effect. That's how anti-Bryan he was.

So exactly what logic would there be in having him come back to side WITH this guy now?

TBH the only reason I turned to the MNF tonight was during the ADR/Ryder match...really just whenever ADR is on tv I change the channel. WWE is on the ups these days. They got a solid decade ahead of them.

Daniel Bryan has become the top guy.After slipping into oblivion,Randy Orton has become the number 2 heel in the company.Dean Ambrose,Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose were becoming boring but have a purpose now.Cody Rhodes is more over than he ever was.People actually give a shit about Big Show after long time.These are the list of people that have directly benefitted from this storyline.

That's the point of the storyline. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon think that what they are doing is best for business but what they are really trying to do is to protect Randy Orton as the WWE champion at all costs while trying to keep Daniel Bryan down in the process. It's pretty much the heels being delusional into thinking that the fans see their actions as good. Not a hard storyline to figure out.

I agree it doesn't make a whole lot of sense. But that's been the rumored plans for a couple of months now. It's ass backwards from what was originally imagined, which was HHH as the baby face taking over the company from a heel Vince (with Stephanie probably playing a neutral role in the whole thing) but they obviously reversed it. The logic of Vince turning baby face will probably be that while sitting at home watching HHH/Steph rule the show with a pair of iron fists (Vince has been off TV since the night after Summerslam for a reason), he has slowly been made a believer out of Daniel Bryan and also has found that HHH/Steph are crossing the line and abusing their power a bit much. I realize Vince not approving of HHH or Steph's methods of running things is hilariously hypocritical considering the shit he's pulled in the past, but as everyone knows, continuity in wrestling is often ignored when it's convenient to do so.

Heels are lying jerks. No surprise here.

If you're going to analyze an angle in kayfabe terms, as you're doing here, you can't complain about them "making bryan look bad." It's a legitimate, shoot thing in that context where no one is thinking about making sure it looks like he'll win at the pay per view.
