Default Who here agrees with me that DesolationRow is one of the best posters here!

I've never seen such an unbiased poster here before, it's like he has positive things to say for every single wrestler whether he likes them or not. The dude always posts well-thought out posts that answer several potential questions all in one post. I know I'm definitely biased, even though lately I've tried to back up my opinions the best way I can, but Deso-Row has no bias AT ALL it seems.

Great Poster IMO, thoughts?

It would be unique from WWE to bring Kharma back a year after she left to go after the Bellas who were her enemies when she left. Hmm...

I'm guessing that after Bryan turns face officially on Sunday, and the Bryan/Sheamus feud concludes, Laurinaitis will "trade" Miz to Smackdown and gift him with the #1 contendership to Sheamus's championship in exchange for the great work of Miz's in securing the win for Team Johnny at Wrestlemania. After Miz/Sheamus, there will be some more Del Rio/Sheamus, too, and Miz will probably re-enter Bryan's world to completely secure Bryan's place as a newly-turned face and revisit their long backstory.

...On second thought, they probably have no idea what the hell they're doing and they're booking week to week, with Vince scribbling a hundred different ideas in a school notebook and scratching out ninety-nine of them in the three hours before each TV taping commences.

The smart move would actually be to let the 2/3 falls match to go half an hour or something, really let the Chicago crowd wear itself out with it and feast off of it, and be satisfied. In fact, that would probably be the ideal way to kick the show off for everyone on the card, everyone in the audience and everyone watching at home.
On if WWE is really a sinking ship?

That is how I see it. Overall, things are at a kind of tricky place because on one hand you have Vince with WWE Films and the network trying to branch out and probably making a mistake in doing so. On the other hand, WWE's live events are doing solid business, ratings are mostly quite unimpressive but not worth slashing your wrists over, merchandise sales are kind of static at the moment but all right, PPV buys are on average significantly down but Wrestlemania was a gigantic, booming success in just about every imaginable way it could be. You have people in different camps, those who want to keep blasting away with enormous match-ups that make Wrestlemania bigger and bigger every single year and those who want to use the spectacular event to create new stars. I think the frank truth is that both things need to be done. Austin making it to the top at Wrestlemania XIV and Cena and Batista making it to the top at Wrestlemania XXI is more than proof enough that giving ascending stars their climactic moment at Wrestlemania is a potent recipe for long-term success. The more eyeballs commanded by the event, the more impressed people there will be when they see the new white-hot star reach the top of the mountain. Unfortunately, WWE keeps struggling at creating fully alive new top stars. They mess up with complicated angles all the time (Summer of Punk/"Conspiracy"), almost torpedoing their new star in the process or they just lazily push and push the guy based on his in-ring dominance and friendly character attributes and let it go at that (Sheamus). No matter what else WWE does, creative improvement remains a necessity. You can have the greatest cast of actors in the world but if the screenplay sucks your movie won't be very good.

Finally, I disagree with the OP. If you're looking for TNA or ROH or somebody else to step up and challenge WWE and make the mighty professional wrestling giant sweat under the collar, you're going to end up being disappointed. Professional wrestling as an industry is in decline nationally. It's sad but expecting some kind of ground-up revolt is like counting on a miracle at this stage. The industry isn't hot enough to warrant the investment capital or liquidity to make any of that happen. TNA came the closest out of anybody since the death of WCW back in very early 2010 and what dent did they make? The answer is there was no dent. It was like a tiny country mouse jumping on the back a Bengal tiger; the tiger simply shook its body for a couple of seconds and nonchalantly threw it off with minimal effort at most. The sad truth is that if WWE is to get itself better, it's going to have to do it from within, do it by itself. The industry on the whole is anemic, and the frank truth is that without WWE, it would only be worse off. Most indy fans, even TNA fans, are people who broke into pro wrestling either thanks to WWE or go back to the Monday Night Wars era, of which WWE played a colossal part, of course.

WWE has the market so thoroughly cornered on pro wrestling in America, if it were to die next week, what would probably happen is most of those fans would simply cease to watch wrestling, just as the majority of WCW's audience simply vanished after that product perished. A few would latch onto TNA and ROH or DGUSA and perhaps somebody, somewhere, would see the need/point in constructing an entirely new wrestling promotion (though it's possible that might not even happen since investing in wrestling is such a dubious prospect these days and in the wake of WWE's hypothetical death, that sentiment would only wax, not wane), but I doubt it would ever do especially well. The industry is in this awkward place where it's so heavily dependent on WWE for its success and/or the "trickle down" effect of such success giving the more humble fiefdoms of the industry something with which they can work and/or feed off of and/or contrast themselves against, but because of the WWE and its unchallenged place as the American king of pro wrestling, nothing can really take place to change or even modestly adjust the established order.
On Rey-rey returning

A short series with Bryan at some point would be good, maybe around December or so, whether they're both face or Bryan's still a heel by then somehow (doubt it).

I'd like to see him return as healthy as he can be at his age and in his physical state, work with a bunch of newer guys and finally have a long-running angle with the returning Sin Cara for next year's Wrestlemania. Like, have Rey return at the July PPV (is it still Money in the Bank?), and cost Del Rio the WHC against Sheamus (which Del Rio and Ricardo would be cheating to get beforehand), then plug them into their first-ever one-on-one PPV match at Summerslam, where Del Rio goes over. Del Rio starts to try to cripple Rey after the match, and Sin Cara makes his return to make the save. Del Rio picks up Hunico and Camacho as muscle, and Rey and Sin Cara feud with them for a while, as well as work singles matches with Del Rio. Then I'd have Rey and Sin Cara ultimately win the feud around Hell in a Cell time, and transition to a Tag Team Championship match against Primo and Epico at Survivor Series, which they win. Then drop the Bronze Spartan Mattel Toy Championship Belts in the opening match of The Royal Rumble, which is partly the catalyst for an angle in which they then become rivals inside the Royal Rumble match later in the night. Then just string along the fans for a few weeks with Sin Cara silently challenging Rey, pointing to the Wrestlemania sign and then to him, with Rey initially not wanting to fight him but around the end of February he finally agrees to. Sin Cara vs. Rey Mysterio at Wrestlemania, Sin Cara goes over, Rey is in the position where he can retire and that is that.
On Zach Ryder

It was his story, along with Eve's and Miz's, that was the heart of the match and its outcome. A year ago CM Punk was Randy Orton's hapless whipping boy leading a dud, go-nowhere faction of chumps; obviously feuding with one of WWE's top stars is a drastically different world than being a midcard enhancement talent as Ryder's recently become, but basing them on their respective talent levels and roster positions year over year, Punk was effectively the main event equivalent to Ryder right now, the guy who could win against guys who were one level beneath him like Kofi Kingston (the way Ryder would at least probably be booked to defeat Tyson Kidd if the match were booked right now, I think) but would get almost steamrolled over by everybody either at or above his spot.

Point is, let's not quite freak completely out over Ryder's doomed career just yet. What I do find utterly unforgivable, however, is the way in which WWE has completely wasted Eve's Wrestlemania-freshened heat. Dolph Ziggler should be ditching Vickie for her and Ziggler/Eve should be becoming the new power couple of WWE making Zack Ryder's life a living hell (due to their shared antagonistic histories with him), only enhancing his underdog image that can one day become the emotional backbone of a long-running redemption angle. Think Tommy Dreamer in ECW, except lovably goofy heroic instead of gritty, blue collar heroic.

It's becoming increasingly difficult to justify his spot on the roster.
These are all just a few examples of his completely unbiased posts that always hit the nail on the head.

One of my favorite posters and one of the few I actually 'learn' from.

In the spirit of being 'unbiased', I would like to see his posts condensed. He doesn't need so many words to get his points across.

YES! YES! YES!

If there wasn't a spread rep rule He would have about 1,000,000 rep points from me alone. I always stop my scrolling to read a DesRow post.
