re: Don Callis on: People offended by new Scarlett Bordeaux character
Cause Alexa and Mandy are just hot. They dont market themselvs as hot chicks, it's not their gimmick. They are simply good looking.
I mean we can arge about Mandy, but wwe booking is so directionless that it doesn't make sense. Even if WWE wanted Emmalina or Eva Marie and now Mandy to be what Impact are doing with Scarlett, it doesn't matter as Impact achieved more in one segment and 3 vignettes than wwe simply cause wwe dont do anything. Impact actally has traditional storylines and characters while wwe is all over the reality era bullshit.
WWE characters cant be compared to Impact characters as wwe barely have any characters. They are simply athletes with flashy personality traits. Impact are guilty of that too, but they still are way better at character building.
Talking about Scarlett, I think it's a great idea. And I think the less she wrestles the better (not cause she's meh in the ring but for the sake of the gimmick).
We live in SJW society when nothing can be edgy or offensive and Scarllet is a loophole. I mean if SJW complains about her character, you can just respond that he's hotshaming. And that's genious. 1) if you treat her like a movie character, it's stupid to complain on the first place 2) if you treat her as a real person, than you cant tell her what to do as she's a strong independent woman who wont let you to hotshame her. THIS IS SMART booking.
It's okay if you dont like her or the character, but it's still a good one. As a wrestling fan who watches and follows less and less wrestling I'm happy there is Impact doing what they're doing.
WWE is just boring, and I'm not NJPW wrestling type a guy. I mean I can appreciate a good match like Okada vs. Omega, but I'm not watching 5 hours show that is only in ring wrestling. And LU kinda lost their bliss. But Impact has it all for now. I dont know if Anthem will continue funding them or if Callis is here to stay (I mean look at how JJ thing ended), but I enjoy what they do now and I hope it continues.
Scarlett, Su Yung, oVe, LAX, Rosemary are actual characters and wrestling despereatelly needs those.
Marking for: John Morrison, The Miz, Rosemary, Io Shirai, Grado, Eva Marie, John Cena, Tessa Blanchard, Angelico, Zema Ion, Lashley, Mandy Rose, oVe, Pentagon, Alexa Bliss, Asuka.
