It's ridiculous. That is why we love it.

It's ridiculous. It's over the top. It's unfathomably good at times. At other times, it's mind boggling how people could watch this. It has hot babes. It has protracted rivalries. It is a male soap opera. And that is why we love it.

Now that we have that out of the way, I thought that this would make a good discussion thread. It's bound to have been discussed already, given that this forum has been around for almost two decades, but it's time for a refresher. This thread is about the top WWE (not necessarily top, but at least shocking - "what would have happened if this really happened", storylines.) Some of these really make you think, for instance the Booker T one. I always got the feeling that he never really lived up to his full potential in the WWE. Such a shame.

Here's the video that prompted me to make this.

Shocking creative decisions that the WWE almost made

Add more to this/discuss about other known ideas and the one's mentioned in the video.

I knew about Hassan winning the title, but I had no idea he would've broken Orton's record. That's faith right there. (pun intended).

lmao @ Taker, thank god he wasn't in the chicken-duck-turkey costume thing (And a main event level Barrett ending the streak :-0)

Re: It's ridiculous. That is why we love it.

NXT: Takeover Brooklyn made me love wrestling again.
Summerslam made me question why I even like this shit.
Last weeks Raw made me mark out of Dudley Boys and Sting.
Last nights Raw nearly killed me from severe boredom.

It's a roller coaster of emotions.

Re: It's ridiculous. That is why we love it.

The Booker/HHH thing is repulsive. I'm glad they mentioned that. The racism angle was so unneeded and made Booker look like the world's biggest black loser when he actually lost

HBK/Hogan still irritates me to this day. I don't care what your thoughts on Hogan are, that was unprofessional as fuck what HBK did. And any other man would be punished severely for it, if not fired. That match sold the PPV, it was the biggest match on the card. And he sandbagged it.

If only they let WCW have its own show. I'd much rather be watching Nitro right now than RAW.

Re: It's ridiculous. That is why we love it.

Booker T could have have been huge if he had won. It was the right thing to do. So of course...

I just gained a lot of respect for Randy Orton if he declined to end Taker's streak out of respect for the guy.

Re: It's ridiculous. That is why we love it.

But yet people complain about Vince Russo or VKM versus God or Hornswoggle.

When it's great, it's the best form of entertainment.

When it's bad, it's hard to defend it.
