Representative of the unwashed masses: notatrollorami: MikeSass: " there's no telling what we'll see on tonight's RAW"

Umm...let me guess...gay men in their undies pretending to wrestle in order to tittilate closeted/latent gay teenaged boys. Just like last week. And the week before. And the week before that.

I didn't want to be "that guy" but I'm glad someone else did. I'm on hold and bored enough that I finally looked into one of these threads to see WTF the discussion was about. It just flabbergasts me that anyone, anywhere, ever, in the entire course of human history finds fake wrestling worthy of their time. Yet these are among the most well populated threads. It buggers the imagination.

Well then don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out?


I won't, and FWIW I didn't intend to threadshiat I just saw a like minded person and responded. I just don't get it, but then again there's no legitimate reason for me to enjoy football and basketball but I do. So..............meh........ you guys enjoy your pointless entertainment and I'll enjoy mine:)

Jim from Saint Paul: verbaltoxin: Jim from Saint Paul: I am sure there is a perfetcly logica......

Ok there isn't. There is no logical explanation Ziggles didn't cash in on ADR last night after the duct tape was taken off.

WWE is now finally bordering on TNA levels of idiotic farking logic.

I swear if I had a Nielsen box in my house I'd not watch either show at this point.

Interacting with Mainland and Japan are really the only reason I keep watching.

/The Summerof Punk was so long ag *Kevin Nash kills my post for no good farking reason either*

At this point the briefcase, and the fictional contract supposedly contained therein, is its own title, and it's actually more prestigious than the other subgrade belts, because not only has Dolph held it longer than any other title he's had, he's retained it against SuperCena.

WWE has shown there's no time limit on cashing in the contract; that you can in fact lose MITB after having won it, and never get the chance to cash in your title shot. How is MITB not a title in and of itself at this point? It is in every way except it's a briefcase, not a belt. It's still a Macguffin though, and still a gimmick. Just like a belt.

For my money Dolph has spent the last several months holding the third most prestigious title in WWE.

That's alot of convincing yourself. I refuse to put in such effort.

It's farking dumb. There is no logic that WWE has shown to suggest you are correct. If they even HINTED at that being where they were going with it, I'd be onboard. They haven't. You are using more logic then they are.


I'm just acknowledging what's there.

- To win MITB, you have to defeat several wrestlers in a TLC match.

- You can cash in the contract whenever you want.

- Having and holding onto the contract means you have the power to get a title shot at any time.

- You can forced to defend MITB in a match, meaning you could lose it before you use it.

- John Cena might even try to take it from you, meaning it's important enough for him to try it.

- Does having the US or Intercontinental titles give you the benefit of challenging for the World or WWE title anytime you want, or having to wrestle the company's biggest star to retain your prop? Nope.

In kayfabe logic, yeah, it's a title. In fact it's better than having most of the belts. I don't care what WWE chooses to officially acknowlede, but they can't book it like they have and me not think the MITB itself is a title, when it is.

Dolph's briefcase has become like Bob Orton's cast, Jake's bag, Undertaker's urn or Honky's guitar. Except his gimmick can be changed into a title match any time WWE Creative feels like booking it.

I live in Fort Worth and when the Stars moved to Dallas I made a good faith effort to get into hockey. I had access to free tickets through work then and took advantage of them quite a few times (and good seats too; Red Wings on the glass and such) but I just never really got that into it. Even when they "won" the Cup (c'mon, that skate was in the crease) I felt like I did when my colleges womens basketball team won a championship. Meh. And with hockey there were no topless girls running around campus.

Oh well. To each his own.

I always forget that I spent five years plus training being gay for pay. I suppose that is okay since I didn't have those "experimental college years". If you all will excuse me I am gonna go don my old tights and search out a fabulous pride parade.

Two of the things that (at least in my mind) keeps the MITB case from being a title are a)the fact that it has an expiration date, and b)if it's cashed in and the holder fails, he can't use it again.

If Wade Barrett decides to challenge ADR for the Big Gold Belt and loses, unless he puts up the IC title in a belt v belt match, he will still be Intercontinental Champion. Likewise, if Wade Barrett holds the title for more than a year, he will still be champion.

I think there should be a non-transferable clause on the briefcase, which would keep it from being put up like a belt in a match.

Frankly, I'd like to see someone (not Ziggles) carry the belt for the entire year, cash in at the MITB ppv and win a world title, only to be taken out the next night's RAW by a new briefcas holder.

Just a thought.

All I know is there better be a cool One Nation Under Punk shirt coming and next week better start off with Punk, Heyman, Brock, and The Shield in the ring together looking cool as shiat, lol.  I mean, when you look at it, Punk/Brock/Ambrose/Rollins/Reigns is a pretty dynamite lineup for a stable running roughshod.

Mainly making fun of the bizarre storylines that continually go against basic logic, but on the other side, there are many of us who enjoy watching the athleticism and technicality that goes into many matches. Bottom line either it entertains you or it doesn't. Just like everything else in life. It's not rocket science or worth any soul searching, man.

I am totally on board with this so long as we don't get one week of cool ala the Nexus tearing up the RAW set followed by no direction. Fortunately, it would be harder for them to turn them into Nexus thanks to Brock (I would say thanks to Punk but that would be a poor example to use with Nexus.)

Yeah, you could potentially run with them as the main heel contingent for months and months, the problem is the next two months - Punk's gotta lose at EC and then to 'Taker at WM, Brock's returning the job to Gagne at WM, the WWE title will be with Cena for a long while....it's hard to imagine how they remain a dominant "how can anyone stop these guys?" faction with the losing they're gonna have to do soon.  But we'll see.

The problem with a heel stable, for the most part to be really successful, they need to have all the belts. Brock doesn't need a title but Punk still does in my opinion.The Shield can have secondary titles and be fine but Punk needs the WWE or the World title. It really is Cena throwing a monkey wrench into this whole thing. I have no issue with The Rock winning the belt. I have an issue with the WWE not wanting to get off the Rock v Cena wagon.

I'm in a "wait and see" mode with Shield. Rumor has it they have big plans for Ambrose, because they know the guy can both work and talk, and obviously Roman Reigns is a chiseled beast that wakes up Big Earl for Vince, but it's WWE. They can still blow it before Mania.

I already feel that they are running out of time to do something with Shield. I hate to say it because normally I think the E blows their load too early but I've had about enough of the run-ins. Time for them to get to work. I only watch RAW though so maybe they have something going on elsewhere I don't know about.

Another issue being that Cena destroyed the entire 7 man Nexus on his own. I doubt three guys will give him trouble.

Can't they just make us at ease by announcing Punk-Taker which I still feel may not actually happen.

Not sure if this thread is dead or not, but the issue I have with the continued Shield run ins is that they are the exact same thing. They attack one person. When he is disabled, another runs out, gets beat down, and then a third comes out. It is like bad guys in a Bruce Lee movie. Why didn't Sheamus come out right away? Why didn't Ryback come out with Sheamus instead of waiting a minute?

It is those breaks in logic that push me away more than pull me in.

Then you might actually miss out on decently-booked wrestling. The other shows are essentially exhibitions but Vince isn't around, so things run much smoother.

But of course it is. The PTPC probably needs to rehearse his next pastry based zingers in preparation for the Orton Chamber.

I really thought we were gonna get Punk vs Taker for the belt at WM with Taker retiring champ. I refused to believe the Rock vs Cena rumors and here we are.

Then I shall continue to not watch the other shows and only watch RAW half-assed and mostly fast-forwarded.

Then you might actually miss out on decently-booked wrestling. The other shows are essentially exhibitions but Vince isn't around, so things run much smoother.

If my friend or my brother tells me something good has happened on the other shows or there is a good match on Superstars or Main Event, I make it a point to find it. I just meant I don't go out of my way to tape every show.


Ive at least found Main Event to be decent wrestling as opposed to 2/3 promos and 1/3 wrestling. The main match lasts quite a while and is usually clean. They only have an hour to get everything in. It really feels more like an exhibition (which it is) but with like 2 good matches per show. Wednesday is usually dead TV for me. If I happen to see Main Event, I'll watch.

dellsworth1007: Bork Botches Again or Kayfabe as Usual, You Decide


TFA refers to him as Mr. McMahon. It's kayfabe, leading to the inevitable HHH/Bork match

DaJesus: Not sure if this thread is dead or not, but the issue I have with the continued Shield run ins is that they are the exact same thing. They attack one person. When he is disabled, another runs out, gets beat down, and then a third comes out. It is like bad guys in a Bruce Lee movie. Why didn't Sheamus come out right away? Why didn't Ryback come out with Sheamus instead of waiting a minute?

It is those breaks in logic that push me away more than pull me in.


In today's WWE, you check logic at the door before tuning in.  Trust me.

Yea, I know. The first couple of times I forgive. How many times has this happened now? We are well at the time that Ryback or someone should have a trap planned. The random beatdowns with no repercussions are getting a little tiresome.

IAmTheTagTeamChampions: My wife is still confused about why I was screaming "REFRESH HIS ASS" at the TV when Bork came out.

~30 minutes out of 185 that weren't pure crap.


lol, nice!

verbaltoxin: I want to reiterate this one more time:

For months - months - every smark on a message board has fantasy booked Punk being behind the Shield, hiring Brad Maddox to throw the Ryback match, and having Heyman keep Brock's number just in case. Last night WWE did all of those things. It wasn't perfect, but rarely anything WWE does comes close to that.

Now watch people complain about it anyway. Even though this is precisely what they wanted and jerked off to all last season.

We've got angry, heel Punk on the chase for the belt, with Brock putting Vince on the shelf, and the Shield remaining untouchable.

It's not exactly like every fantasy booker wanted, but it's happening. WWE gave you what you wanted.

Commence complaining anyway in 5...4...3...2...


The only angry part about it is the fact that Punk doesn't still have the belt. Mr. Hollywood part-time is gonna drop it to the self-appointed Face of the company. That's farking retarded. That stable would've given even more incentive to Punk keeping the belt and looking like an indestructible leader of a powerful group that could decimate anyone on cue.

- Vince McMahon is legitimately having surgery done on his left hip soon. Vince has had a bad hip for some time now. The storyline injury from Brock Lesnar was done as a reason to take off for the surgery.

ZOMG, could it be?  Could we have a Vince-free Raw for an extended period of time?

Don't mind me, just trying to bring the LMS belt back from Japan.

Yes it's early but they are like a day ahead over there.

What would be great, is if they covered that up with either:

A) Steph-HHH seize power again
B) Shane-O-Mac comes back and usurps them all

That would be one of the biggest schwerves in wrasslin history considering he is currently the CEO of another company. I wouldn't put it past them but it seems out of reach at this time. Nothing worng with brining Steph back in my opinion. I actually don;t mind me some HHH as long as he doesn't overdo it with his participation, lulz
