Re: Who do you think we're total package WWE champions?

HHH had it all in his second (early 2000) reign. I honestly can't think of anybody else who had charisma, in-ring talent, and a good look who wasn't let down by booking. Austin probably comes the...

A hero, Brock. That's what you are. A goddamn hero.

Re: Official Match/Show/DVD Discussion Thread - Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal

I remember really liking that match, but I haven't seen it in ages. Any chance you could upload it? (And hey, since it's been brought up, Funk/Cassidy?) Pretty please?

Re: Official Match/Show/DVD Discussion Thread - Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal

Nope; it was about the Hansen team. Maybe it was just Vader who didn't like the idea; he's on the record that that was the only thing he thought could've been better about his time in All Japan. Of...

Re: Official Match/Show/DVD Discussion Thread - Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal

Neither Vader nor Hansen liked the idea of teaming because they didn't find it believable that they wouldn't just steamroll everybody they faced in like 3 minutes. See: this match from earlier in the...

Re: If even Brock/Undertaker can't pop the rating to 3.0, what else can WWE to do at this point?

It's not the Monday Night War era anymore. Low TV ratings are "standard," because pro wrestling in general is a niche product. And with no real competition for its audience, WWE only has to worry...

Re: Official Match/DVD/Show Discussion Thread - Tradition Continues & Bobby Eaton

Yeah, no network for me. It'd probably be a worthwhile investment, honestly, but not one I see myself making in the near future. I still prefer my wrestling media in hard-copy form or on my hard...

Re: Official Match/DVD/Show Discussion Thread - Tradition Continues & Bobby Eaton

There's a Nagata/Sakuraba singles match from 10/14/13 that's pretty damn swanky in much the same way as the Nakamura match, though not quite as good.

Re: This Cesaro Can't Get Over Stuff Is Bullshit

Re: Why did the NWO 2002 angle flop?

Because it had already flopped in 1998.

Re: Official Match/DVD/Show Discussion Thread - Tradition Continues & Bobby Eaton

Glad you liked Nakamura/Sakuraba. For me it's a top 10 match from probably the best in-ring year of the decade so far; I can't imagine any other "big" match going that short and still feeling...

Re: USA Network heat on declining pro-wrestling popularity!

"Cycling" downward? Present tense? Not "cycled downward more than 10 years ago"?

Re: Am I the Only One Who Saw The Streak Breaking to Brock Lesnar Coming at Wrestlemania 30?

I was very sure Taker was winning, because I was so sure he was losing at two of the last three Manias and had been proven wrong both times. I honestly believed that WWE only started playing up "the...

Re: Official Match/DVD/Show Discussion Thread - Tradition Continues & Bobby Eaton

Sakuraba vs. Nakamura from Wrestle Kingdom '13 is extremely high on goodness. He and Shibata also had a few surprisingly entertaining tag matches against Wataru Inoue, with first Goto and then Makabe...

In terms of WWE-associated guys, Benoit. Steamboat always seemed like he could hold his own with Flair too. And if you expand the question to the larger world of wrestling, you have to mention Kenta...

Re: The reason why WWE could never go back to that edgy gritty Attitude Era we all love.

Adult entertainment, sure. But again, WWE is not by its grand design adult entertainment. Wrestling being seen as "adult males only" is what Vince has been trying to get away from since at least the...
