I don't understand why Vince keeps having to repeat that this is a scripted TV show with characters to generate interest and reaction from fans. Often these characters take the form of a real segment of the population, and turn in up to 11. That's been wrestling's MO since Gorgeous George. There ARE people out there like Swagger's and Zeb's characters. Most "conservatives" are not near as extreme as those characters, but Vince amps it up for entertainment purposes. We are supposed to hate Swagger for being a xenophobe and a racist. We are supposed to want to see the awesome Alberto Del Rio vanquish this foe. Vince wants us (as well as the large Latino following WWE has) to hate Swagger so much, that we will watch every RAW and Smackdown! and to plunk down a chunk of change for Wrestlemania to see it happen. So Glenn Beck, Alex Jones and other "conservatives" who are bothered by this, SHUT UP MARKS ITS A farkING SATIRE AND A farkING SCRIPTED TV SHOW. Get over it. Are you so sensitive because you realize you're dangerously close to Swagger's character and you can't stand the thought of being a heel.

Oh and by the way, look at Zeb's latest videos. If you were a non-wrestling fan and had never heard of Zeb, Swagger, or this entire gimmick and simply came across these mixed in with some other Tea Party believer's videos would you think they were fake? WWE has done a great job with this gimmick. But then, Swagger got high. Da da da da da dad

Glenn Beck has no place on a WWE broadcast.  He is a scripted entertainer.
 
2013-02-22 11:46:42 PM
Just like I'm not sure why WWE gets on the sports tab, I can't figure out why Glen Beck has ever been anywhere other than the entertainment tab.  Well, except for that time in 1990.  Obviously.

I am not a rasslin' fan and saw Zeb Monday at a friends house and it took a while for me to figure out what was going on.

It is impossible to parody the 'baggers.

Beck has hated WWE ever since his "George Soros is the Higher Power" theory was disproved. He worked it out on the chalkboard and everything!
 
2013-02-23 02:51:43 AM
Can't see Beck doing this but given that the demographic he reaches with his show it would be a perfect tie in for this storyline.  I honestly don't think though even if he did accept, would Swagger even be on Monday's episode?  figure after his brush with the law they would write something in that he couldn't appear  because he was at the border giving Swagger bombs to illegals trying to sneak into the country or something along those lines.

McMahon is a genius. He just successfully started a new storyline with Glenn Beck in it and is about to capitalize on all of this Tea Party vs GOP madness that has been going on.

There was a story I read where McMahon said something like somewhere between 20-30% of WWE fans are Hispanic.

2013-02-23 08:36:13 AM
FTA: "Beck inferred that Swagger's persona, along with that of Colter as his mentor, would offend WWE's "conservative" fan base."

So conservatives think these are actual people and they're voicing their true opinions?  Or is Glenn Beck concerned about WWEs ratings and doesn't want them to drop due to upset conservatives?  Or is Glenn Beck so desperate for some attention that he stooped to this level?

At least I'm going to go classy here for the 100th greenlight. I gotta say, I was fishing to get the first FWC thread across four tabs, but glad to see this classic work of Vince trolling on the site. I do wonder if he's still so pissed about Linda that he'll screw his own policies to keep this up (then again, he throws out the policy for Orton anyhow). Anyway, in honor of this thread...........it's your updated 2013 Checklist for Raw on Monday

Weekly RAW Checklist (or for watching fark burn)

1) Every 25th post is "ARMBAR!" & every 1004th post is "moss covered 3 handled family gredunza"**
2) Somebody trolling for the night
3) Somebody wondering why the thread isn't in the Entertainment Tab
4) "Never mind that shiat, here comes Mongo!"
5) Best Pony in the World
6) I AM THE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!
7) NOPE!
8) Because Fark you, that's why
9) Redacted
10) Shining Wizard's fantasy vs. reality picture
11) Dolph Ziggler's guide to selling and athletic sex
12) Mizark Appreciate Time
13) "Randy pooped where?"
14) Where's Cena? Is someone talking about Cena? WHERE'S CENA?
15) HHH->All the belts
16) Remember the SSSP belt? Yeah, that happened
17) Screw it, you aren't even reading this one. Vickie topless pic (but link it NSFW)
18) Once a PPV cycle, just like Taker....the "It's Me" pic shall return
19) JFSP shows up late and gives a full recap; posts Cena
20) Last Real American Standing

Yes it is. I migh tactually watch, now that this publicity has:

1)informed me about the gimmick, what it is, and what its purpose is.

and...

2)let me know that Dutch Mantel is working it.


number 2 alone makes it worth watching.
 
2013-02-23 02:37:13 PM
Old dutch needs to be perm hired by WWE to coach these youngins on how to cut promos.. Dude is a master of the craft... Even when they broke character he completely and utterly owned the entire atmopshere and drew you in to hang on every word. It's so refreshing to see what a real promo is.. CM Punk, Jericho cut great promos (about the only two left who do) but even they can't hold a candle to dutch..
 
2013-02-23 02:59:28 PM
Clearly, the best way to take advantage of this recent dust-up with the law is to have Swagger immediately add a new dimension to his character to calm down the Tea Party outrage: he's not a bigot, as people claim, he's a pro-legalization libertarian.

Plus, have you noticed how loudly they keep accenting the "...the people" part of their slogan? It's clear WM will see the unveiling of the first member of a stable under the same name. SPOILER ALERT: the newest member:

If handled right, the Thwagger gimmick could be gold. Let Thwagger off for the weed with a Stern Warning. Let Bruno be the one to explain it to him. Keep the gimmick with Albert of the River going.The actual quality of the matches should actually win some fans back.
