A colloquy regarding the word "Diva"

WWE copiously uses the term "Divas," most notably in the title "Divas Championship" (as opposed to "Women's Championship").

How do you feel about this epithet?

Merriam-Webster defines "Divas,"...

Re: Was anyone else more shocked that Eddie won the title more than Beniot

Eddie's win was definitely more shocking. Less than 1-year prior, Eddie was lingering aimlessly in the tag-team division (people forget he even wrestled at Wrestlemania 19). To suddenly go over...

Re: Will Roman Reigns change his entrance/look?

I'll note that Jeff Hardy retained the Hardy Boyz gimmick after the duo split, as he had the same music, entrance, attire, taunts, and move-set. In WCW, Booker T also retained the music, catchphrase,...

Re: Criticisms over Heyman's promo -- Proof that WWE Fans are dim-witted

Paul Heyman's praise was sardonic, not sincere. I had hoped the explanation was in the OP, but I will explain further, in-depth.

From a strictly kayfabe perspective, Paul Heyman's praising Roman...

Re: Criticisms over Heyman's promo -- Proof that WWE Fans are dumb

Even if he did say "Unlike him" as opposed to "I'm like him," the point remains that Heyman was likely sardonic because the praises led to a snide reference to Summerslam 2002 and the question, "How...

Re: Criticisms over Heyman's promo -- Proof that WWE Fans are dumb

Brock said, "I'm like him [i.e. - Heyman] ... I don't respect you." Heyman talked glowingly about Reigns' lineage only to lead into a snide reference to Summerslam 2002 and the question, "How will it...

Criticisms over Heyman's promo -- Proof that WWE Fans are dim-witted

Many people are criticizing WWE for -- supposedly -- having Paul Heyman rank Roman Reigns over Bruno Sammartino, Andre the Giant, Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, and John Cena ("I'll...

Re: So Daniel Bryan had Reigns pinned and didn't count

If this is the image/scene in question here, then this thread is misguided. Bryan may have his legs barely atop of Roman Reigns' thighs, but Bryan's shoulders are also on the mat. In WWE's world, you...

Re: As if Reigns winning wasn't disappointing enough...

They're grooming Roman Reigns as the one to stop Brock Lesnar -- the guy who ended the streak, who squashed John Cena, who won a triple threat with a broken rib.

If Reigns doesn't dominate Daniel...

Re: Undertaker wrestling today is like ...

For the amount of time Undertaker has been wrestling, I would hope - for his sake - that money is no issue for him. I think he can look after his legacy instead of his money at this point.

Re: [SPOILERS] The Roman Empire Fallacy

How did Brock Lesnar end the streak? How did Brock Lesnar squash John Cena? How did Brock Lesnar win the triple threat on a broken rib?

With Roman Reigns beating Daniel Bryan dominantly, the idea...

Re: Roman Reigns vs. Daniel Bryan - #1 Contenders Match

In 24 hours, we'll know. I think we either get a clean Roman Reigns win or a non-finish/draw to set-up the triple threat. With the recent rumor about Cena vs Rusev going last, I wonder if they are,...

Re: Did CM Punk essentially get AJ Lee fired?

You're assuming that WWE are the instigators in the lawsuit. The doctor is acting independently, with his own private lawyers. The suit does not mention WWE in any non-incidental manner. As for the...

Re: Doc.Z-Pack is suing Punk

It doesn't work like that. Litigation is a long, difficult, tiresome process. You don't go ahead with a suit unless you feel you have a shot. Civil lawyers don't truly get paid unless they win a...

Re: Why didn't Kane get a title run after he unmasked in 2003?

Kane (like RVD, Jericho, and Booker T - each of whom were ready and capable) never got the title in 2003 because that year was the peak of Triple H's figurative reign of terror.

Triple H gave the...

Re: Reaction to Portraying Cena as an Old Man Veteran

Again, some of you are not understanding that its not about his actual age. Although thirty-seven is clearly not old, Cena's long career has reasonably made him age faster. He's been wrestling for...

Re: Reaction to Portraying Cena as an Old Man Veteran

I think portraying Cena as an old man veteran is good character development. It's not necessarily his age (37 isn't old) more than the injuries/mileage. He's been the top guy since 2005, and...
