CommiePuddin: SharkTrager: CommiePuddin: TheManofPA: Oh and the whole twitter AJ-Punk thing has added cupcakes and the great line:
If it has Punk's face on it, I will gladly wear it on my body.

One thing that's kinda annoying about AJ is the Smackdown intro. You know, the one that shows all the different wrestlers doing awesome wrestling things...and AJ crying backstage.

That's because they rarely let her wrestle on air, which is too bad because she's one of the best Divas in the ring.

But she has before...it's not like they don't have footage. Hell, have a shot of her going psycho on that other girl who called her crazy...when you play off a character as that weak, why do I care about her? If I wanted blubbering crying, I'd watch real soap operas.


Because they don't really have much and are stupid.

If you look at the videos of her online she really is pretty good.

Because only Kelly Kelly and Beth are allowed to be considered talented wrestlers, even if one of the two isn't.

CommiePuddin: Praise Cheesus: Oh, here's something interesting; please note what name is NOT listed here:

WWE Corporate Officers

By the way, this is NOT the place to run with a storyline work.

Ace hasn't held the actual title in the company pretty much since he went in front of the camera is my understanding.


You know, it would be hilarious if there were a shareholder lawsuit about them claiming Ace was EVP of Talent Relations when he isn't.

"I only invested because that sharp young man on Monday night really seemed to be turning things around!"

OK, so the original vanished then reappeared.

I suspect it was always a given that Paul Levesque would replace Johnny as EVP of Talent. However, to the casual observer, it appears Paul has a fairly spotty track record right now, as only one of his publicly known recruits (Sheamus) has demonstrated any long term viability and three of Paul's other picks (Alberto Del Rio, Sin Cara and Drew McIntyre) have not done nearly as well as hoped.

Back in my day, in the company I worked for, no one would have guessed who our lead talent scout was. He was a short, nondescript man that spent his time going around the country watching wrestling matches at colleges and small venues. The tools of his trade were business cards, an AT&T calling card and a list of the hotels we stayed at on our tour, so he could get in touch with the me when he found someone of interest and wanted to arrange a try-out. I would then look at our schedule and tell him when to bring the new prospect in.

I think it became a more higher profile type of role when Jim Ross became VPTR for the WWE.

Last post on my part:
If they REALLY wanted to kick off some sort of hot angle, they should just screw us early on in the show and make it nothing but Vince and Ace and Cena focused but with an advertised Punk main event.

Then after all the crap setup, have Vince completely go after to screw Punk with some sort of group of newer individuals who want to make it big. Remind us that Vince never forgets that this year of hell was Punk's fault (since that's why Vince was booted) and that Punk is not the champion this company needs

IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN BECAUSE SCREW CONTINUITY but it'd be fun

Nah.. EconoLodged it up. $70 a night.. Pure dump your luggage in the tub and check for bed bugs before proceeding joint. No fridge, no microwave, no PPV and 29 channels. It's Vermont though, place is clean the place is just old as shiat.. Don't care.. All I look for is a bug free place w/ a TV to sleep. I don't believe in spending $200 a night I shouldn't be spending that much time in anyway.
 
2012-06-11 03:25:05 PM  
tonight is going to be a long show. Tons of Cena & recaps & Twitter!!!

styckx: What's the over/under on senile Vince's inner rage at his company and employees coming out on TV and doing something farking retarded?


No matter what that number is, take the over! I feel a "our customers screwed our customers" moment coming tonight and he is going to start some type of faction to clear out the indie upstarts (punk, dbd) and Punk will start a "fight the man (Revolution)" faction. Hotshot booking will have the culmination at Summerslam with Revolution winning and Lesnar and other thugs (Broadus/Ryback) getting axed.

Sadly you are right, just like every summer angle Vince brews up.. God I hate their hotshot booking.

HHH: Vince we should ride this angle out over the course of 6 months or so. It could make a lot of money and has a alot of depth we can use to build up the roster.

Vince: Juan, No.. Two months.. You know why? fark you that's why. Take 4 months worth of Cena and cram into the time slots you would have spent on those vanilla midgets who those idiots in the seats keep chanting for. WE"LL SHUT THEM UP!!!

Forgot to factor in Cena and his five moves of doom. Smart money involves a water bottle, a scarf, and a Nexxus reboot to clear him early.

If they were smart they'd follow the accidental lead of Jaws and Vince doesn't come out until the last segment. Tease it. Maybe have him walk by way in the background backstage. Show Johnny sweating, Cena gloating and Punk glaring. Build the thing up. Then in the last segment is the brutal shark attack, in whatever direction they have chosen.

Unfortunately their biggest problem may be that they have decided that Cole creates the narrative for each show, and people hate him. Even when the material is good it's annoying when it comes from him.

That and they aren't smart.

May I have your attention please? I have just received a text from WWE, AND I QUOTE...

BREAKING NEWS: Due to a concussion on Smackdown, Del Rio wont face World Champion Sheamus @ No Way Out. New #1 contender to be named on tonight's Raw (8/7CT)

...RICARDO! Make it Ricardo, dammit!

Yeah but you can't just give them the same match over and over again. If they want to keep those two in the same match for several more weeks then it needs something to add spice, like a cage, or ladders, last man standing, submission, etc etc stipulation.

So yup, sounds like Limes/Tensai or just since we miss the guy, triple threat, Limes/SSSSHHHHOOOOOOWWWWWW/YEAN CCCCCEEEEEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNAAAAAAAAA!!!
