On the flip side though, Kane's character has pretty much been killed (nothing's been going on with him for a LOOONNNGGG time so I guess it doesn't matter), and Bryan really doesn't seem like an effective heel this way - he comes off as the Miz or Vickie Guerrero type of heat, it gets reaction now but it's going to drive you nuts soon lol. The focus has been taken off of wrestling completely and is strictly on the word "no" now.
They're face



Also Kane's character is fine, he's just as crazy as ever unless you think his entire 'I'M GOIN TO DISNEY LAND!!' bit after winning the titles is a sane response

How are people calling Bryan the second biggest draw? He has a track record of being a ratings killer.

Track record? I'm guessing you haven't been in the ratings thread since RAW 1000 because it's actually quite the contrary to what you're saying.

The man brought Smackdown's ratings to levels not seen since Triple H.

I know that, but the person I quoted wanted those three things on that very show.

But its not just ratings, anyway. I'm sure D-Bry gets a lot of merch sales and he generally gets the biggest reaction of the night at shows.

While they do have to be careful about overdoing it, the key to this past Smackdown was that there was a point to the whole thing. They ended up the night united, and starting shit with the entire tag team division. So, yeah, they were on for most of the night, but there was a payoff and a pretty damn good one at that.

Contrast that to the AJ thing which started out very promising, and then turned into a mess because they kept extending it with no real rhyme or reason.

Over exposure only really happens when you keep doing the same thing over and over again.

You sound surprised? If we like something, just one little bit, WWE will shove it down our throats.
