Funniest part was Curtis Axel. They didn't even show him get beaten up Cole just mentioned that Axel's been found "decimated" in the locker room, no video or anything
Then guess Swagger only got buried by Cesaro, instead of Cesaro and the Shield.

Everything the Shield does is so damn entertaining. I think Ambrose needs a thing, either a taunt, a signature move or something, that gets a pop from the audience like the other two get. He does do the dual suicide dive with Rollins but he needs something on his own I think.
Gross and tasteless, dude.

And not everyone finds the Shield entertaining. Maybe I'm NOT entertained by them doing the same exact tactics they've been using for over a year again and again.

Re: The Shield beatdowns

The Shield beatdowns needed to happen. They've always shown an attitude of not letting things just pass. It gives them a chance at some revenge and also thins some of the backup Evolution can have. Now the guys that got taken out will be too afraid to stand up against the Shield again.

Re: The Shield beatdowns

But absolutely no fucks given about Axel

And WWE was smart and replaced Rusev with Sandow. Poor Sandow's already been buried so much.


@Thwagger

Not really. Was a really solid 10 min match between Swagger and Cesaro. Didn't get buried at all. Just wish it'd be on a PPV. The Zeb/Heyman debate before that was pretty good too.

Better this way than having him show up in the handicap match and eating finishers.

Re: The Shield beatdowns

You don't find the Shield entertaining Thwagger? Them, DB and the Wyatt's have been thee thing to watch Raw and SD for. Have produced amazing matches for a long long time, you atleast find their matches entertaining though right?

Yeah, at least it shows they're giving some effort into building up Rusev. It was smart to protect him and Barrett.

I'm looking forward to the debate only because of Zeb's side. From what it sounds like, Heyman has been just...sucking at his promos lately.

The fact the match was on Smackdown instead of a PPV and Swagger lost it is more than enough proof that he's completely and utterly buried. He'll be getting fed to dudes like Dolph on Monday, I'll bet. Whatever, knew WWE was gonna do this crap anyways.

Why in the hell does it matter what I find entertaining or not? What's it to you?

The Shield is okay, but heel or face their matches are relatively predictable save for Rollins and they've been up to the same types of things for over a year. They're just...there to me. Sometimes they entertain me, but doing the triple powerbomb crap no matter who it is done on has always made me roll my eyes out of my skull.

Wyatts are fine as is, I prefer them over the Shield. DB is chill on my list, too.

Re: The Shield beatdowns

I don't really care if you find them entertaining or not, was just wondering why. I could understand from a story point because they had nothing for a while but their matches have been superb, but like you said. Not everyone is gonna find the Shield entertaining.

Their matches can be predictable, which is an issue for me if their characters have become stale or repetitive. You can't have repetitive story angles and matches and scenarios while still having repetitive matches. The only one that impresses me in Rollins but if 2/3 of the Shield matches are mainly the same stuff over and over, well then they're not entertaining me.

And their last promo made me Creampuffs? What?

A screaming woman could cause the mommy/daddy types to troll their facebook again .. who knows.

That said, I remember Brie getting involved a couple of times, but her terrible acting just made everyone cringe in the end - so that could just be another reason for it.
Yeah, but then again, Layla's acting is way above Brie's.

It just comes off so fake. Like no woman would step back 20 meters and stay silent if a mob of three men would come and beat up her boyfriend.

CHEERING FOR
Roman Reigns / Edge / Randy Orton / The Rock / Jeff Hardy / Undertaker
Naomi / Gail Kim / Trish Stratus / Beth Phoenix / Layla

Which is why it really sucks that the WWE isn't about "realism" anymore. I seriously blame the whole PG thing for this shit. Also, I'm noticing a concentrated effort on part of the WWE to completely separate male/female interaction .. like all they can do together is *be* together and beyond that men and women have absolutely nothing to do with each other.

I can't remember outside of Steph (and Emma) any other woman exchanging a single word, let alone have a physical interaction with a male wrestler in months on their actual TV. (I don't consider Total Divas as part of canon WWE programming btw).
