And I was right, and I still am right. There is no other valuable achievement in womens wrestling.
Because as you said, nothing else mattered. And that's why you think Becky sucks. I remember your ridiculous posts like they were posted yesterday.
I'm pretty sure I didn't like Becky before she was ever scheduled for the main event of WrestleMania, but I'll go back and check.
Again, you're not thinking. Yes she's been on top for almost a year now, but has the booking changed? Has the product as a whole made you feel like they weren't insulting your intelligence? The product as a whole is absolute shit. One person, a woman at that who is not getting anywhere near the TV time she was getting on the RTWM, is not gonna turn that around.
Becky is all over the fucking tv.
The booking hasn't changed in more than 20 fucking years. They weren't in a destructive, dead end rut for the last 20 years, ratings wise. Only recently, and that coincides with the worst "main event" performers we've seen in the last 20 years. These are NOT coincidences.
They are not excuses. They're hard facts.
Well, they're pretty easy to deny and refute for hard facts.
The product hasn't always been bad. In your eyes, the storylines and angles may have been bad, but they were entertaining. They didn't completely insult your intelligence, wins/losses meant something, gimmick matches weren't worthless, championships were important, etc. It was sports entertainment and they gave you a reason to watch.
They didn't insult your intelligence? Have you listened to the Bryan and Vinny retro Raw reviews? The product was a nightmare in the Attitude Era. They were so bad in the mid 90's, they almost got driven out of business. The only reason they survived was the two most revolutionary performers in the business striking gold at the exact same moment in time. That's it. Nothing to do with storylines, insulting your intelligence, nothing.
If they pushed Wyatt and Owens as main eventers it wouldn't change shit because the booking would still be terrible. Kevin Owens, the guy you praise as the 2nd coming of Christ,
Let's not go that far. I already have a Christ, thank you very much.
As I've estabished, the product has never, ever been well booked. You know damn well it'll make a difference, and I don't mean a B show title reign, I mean a REAL, serious, A level, PPV main eventer role, that is of a permanent nature, as permanent as Roman Reigns, yes, it will make a difference, 100% will make a difference, but you know that'll never happen, so you can make those remarks knowing full well you're in zero danger of ever being proven wrong.
was Universal Champion on RAW 2 years ago. Did anything change? Were ratings through the roof?
They were a lot higher than they are now. They weren't in a slump. And he wasn't even really a main eventer as Universal champion. The show was still about Roman and Rollins. You put him as the TOP guy, whole different story. He kept it afloat as the champion, but he was not given the top of the line opportunity that he needed.
And how are we supposed to know if Becky would have been a draw or not when they've sabotaged the core of her character and what got her over in the first place? This isn't the same Becky from late 2018.
The fuck are you on about? This is exactly the same Becky from 2018. She's "The Man". She "slaps the heads off fools" or whatever stupid catchphrase she used in 2018 that she still uses to this day. She behaves the same way. The only difference between SummerSlam to SummerSlam is she was originally a heel and now she's a babyface, and babyfaces are historically much better draws than heels.
And FYI, Captain Marvel drew a billion dollars because of the Marvel brand, not because of Brie Larson.
Ant-Man didn't make a billion dollars. They're not even making any more Ant-Man movies because of how poorly they performed.
And I'm not saying Brie Larson is the difference, because god forbid I praise her, but people clearly had interest in that character, for whatever reason. People don't have an interest in Becky except for the social media people who don't mean a thing and are too small of a minority for a difference to be made.
