You guys take wrestling WAY too seriously. Only geeks enjoy "seriousness" and "sophistication" from a product derived from the lowest common denominator.

Wrestling is at it's glorious, silly best when it's doing things like this and the 24/7 title skits.
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?

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.

Dude did you know they changed cars after the commercial break. They messed up this week too :lmao

Not only did they replace a crashed car with a new car, this car was apparently a different brand and make :lmao

Why was that even necessary...

I mean I like silly stuff but didn't Vince mcmahon call his own product sophisticated? So they think that kind of goofy stuff is sophisticated?

WWE producing Razzie worthy segments while Youtubers are producing better anime action scenes than Hollywood on a Youtube budget...

I wasn't paying attention. I don't go back and watch the WWE after its been finished. The only time in the past fortnight I've watched WWE repeatedly was to hear seths screams when he landed on the stretcher.

I didn't say the story was perfect but I'd rather a stupidly executed wrestling story then a WWE version of a boxing title fight I'm better than you I'll take your title story.

Compare romans and Owens storylines to seths and beckys stories and it blows them away. Due to embracing the hokey bullshit that is pro wrestling

I’ll tell you.

The geek audience they have left.

WWE legends and outlets that normally wouldn't cover NJPW were talking about it..

So?

It’s wrestling.

You’re thinking under the assumption these should be serious and sophisticated, simulated fights.

Re: Bah Gawd Rowan is the mystery driver!!

It be a good thing to split Bryan away from Rowan, you can have heels just say "that's too far for even me" and let Bryan go his own way. WWE are lacking giant evil heels and a feud with Reigns could be a nice rub for Rowan. Bryan's given Rowan a nice boost in his career, he can move on without having to turn Bryan face.
