Stupid thread but I want to know what do you think about the extremely typical sentences the majority of heels and faces use. Specially heels.

Heels:
"I'm better than you."
"I'm the future of this bussines"
"You're all here to watch me."
"It's all about me."

Faces:
"I love all of you."
"I am here every night for the WWE Universe."

Any more?

Heel - "That was a fluke!"

and

"I wasn't ready!"

Usually said after the most decisive win imaginable.

There's an obvious need for phrases like this, and the ones you mentioned. You need self promotion, it just becomes eye rolling after you've seen it a million times. The one that really needs to go is making fun of the local sports team. I'm not a sports guy, I don't give a shit, talk about WWE.

Cheap heat will always be one of the pillars of being a quality heel. However I would prefere if WWE would allow heels to do this in the opening segment as it will turn the crowd for the rest of the show. Doing it during the Main Event is pointless really.

As for the thread;

Heel
- "You're too old to take on me" - Said to anyone older than them
- "You haven't got the experience to take on me" - Said to anyone younger than them

Face
- "Vince McMahon is an idiot"

It's just boring. I'm not saying get rid of cheap heat, but I just don't care. There's other ways of doing it, make fun of how fat the crowd is, or ugly, or stupid, or something. They don't have to keep going back to the sports team, it's dull.

It doesn't even make any sense when you realize that 99% of the players aren't even from the city the heel is making fun of, so where's the offense? If I'm from Pittsburgh, why should I care about a bunch of guys failing to win a title who aren't actually from Pittsburgh?

Heel: Disparaging comments about the city they are in.
Face: "I've worked my butt off to get to where I am" "Everything I do I do it for the fans" or something to that effect.

"You're gonna choke, just like (insert local sports team name here) in the world series/superbowl/stanley cup"

"I'll never give up"

"I don't care what any of you think, I'm the reason why you're all here"

Babyfaces love that sports team cheap pop. I don't know if anybody's ever been more offensive in that than John Cena. He's shilled for every team there is. He's simultaneously a Yankees and Red Sox fan kayfabe wise but he resents being called the Yankees and is personally a Tampa Bay Rays fan.

He color-coordinated the launch of his new, garish purple and yellow clothing to happen in Los Angeles, then he whored out for the Lakers fans for a cheap pop.

Most recently he was all over the Penguins and the Steelers for a cheap pop. He totally blew the Steel Curtain reference. He called it the Iron Curtain and erroneously used it to further an analogy about his wrestling offense when the Steel Curtain was a defensive unit.

He always name-drops successful franchise for cheap pops. The Patriots and the Packers are two of the most cherished cheap pops of John Cena.
