Is that you Kevin Dunn? Got that Emmy yet bud??
Emmy?

I think wrestling is the lowest common denominator of entertainment and should stop trying to pretend it’s sophisticated.

Literally the only 2 segments I enjoyed from the YouTube highlights this week were the 24/7 stuff and the surprise Roman attacks backstage.

Do you know why?

They’re non-wrestling storyline developments.

Serious wrestling about play fighters legitimately trying to “beat” other play fighters to prove who is “better” only appeals to geeks.

Re: Bah Gawd Rowan is the mystery driver!!

Hey I buy it. Rowans from the backwoods and looks inbred. I think all Bryans involvement will be he was just trying to teach Rowan to drive and because erik is slow he lost control of his vehicles. Don't fuck your cousins people!

I love a good storyline myself. And I do agree the 24/7 segments are about the only consistently entertaining part of WWE.
But the execution of that Roman segment last week was pretty shite. The storyline itself isn't bad at all, but the execution of that segment was crap. And it looked crap onscreen too.
I mean, no one is expecting high-end cinema watching WWE, but for all the money and resources they have, WWE still find a way to make their product look cheap and shoddy.
And that's on your boy Kevin Dunn.

You say that when the most talked about thing in wrestling in recent times was Okada-Omega I which broke the internet and had the whole industry buzzing.

The only reason this is getting attention is because of how bad it is, people are laughing at the segments and the WWE.

Isn't wrestling meant to be trashy low brow entertainment? Or is that the point of his rant that WWE should do trashy storylines like this? Embrace the wrestling roots and not be something they aren't?

Not according to Vince, this is sophisticated entertainment. No blood and guts here.

Naturally. But Vince is an idiot. Wrestling is meant to be hokey fun bullshit. Like even AEW embraces the fun hokey bullshit.

Aside from the camera angles of the forklift segment I like this storyline. It's an actual professional wrestling storyline. Instead of the sports type storyline we usually get.

It just needs to be executed better.

Agree 100% mate. The storyline itself is fine. But the execution of that backstage segment involving the forklift was garbage.
