(Bleacher Report)   Now that he's achieved redemption, who will Cena battle as the scrappy, WWE Champion underdog? Will we finally get to see Tons of Funkadactyls vs. Rhodes Scholarellas?

The Bestest: well a couple website writers didn't appreciate the crowd, particularly during the Sheamus-Orton match


And you know what?

To the said writers: fark YOU!

You can't throw out the "art of wrestling" or fan etiquette bullshiat anymore.  This is a farking carnival act of a reality show with sprinkles of wrestling in between.

Last night was a large group of WRESTLING fans.  They were pissed, and tired of the bullshiat, and letting Vince and his parade of retards have it.  They took control so much that Vince had to yell in Lawler's headset "GO TO BREAK DAMMNIT!"

We can ask those that went, did they make an announcement during the commercial to shut up?  I'm curious about that.

The fans made the show entertaining, when Vince wouldn't do it.

People who say pro wrestling is "scripted" are wrong.

It's an IMPROVISED performance within an established story framework,  And the crowd is one of the performers.

Really proud of the old school NY/NJ/PA smart marks right now -- five-star performance.

For the younger wrestling fans:
When you see folks in their 20s and 30s mournfully remembering "how wrestling was in the Attitude Era", THIS is what we're actually taking about. That sense that every week would be a chaotic fantasyland where ANYTHING could happen, and the crowd was the most unpredictable element of all.

The wrestling wasn't always great, and the booking often didn't make a bit of sense, but you knew that every show was a crazy party for 20,000 people in the arena and millions at home.  Tonight's show is the first in a VERY long time that's had that raucous 90s atmosphere.  That's what folks who've been fans in the past miss and are actually complaining about when we get frustrated with today's product.

Yep. It seemed last night the fans got the show they wanted and it was glorious. Now I don't want WWE turning into the Running Man where every opponent and match-up is determined by fan vote, but it really wouldn't kill Vince to listen to the crowd once in a blue moon. Last night was proof.

Sooooooooo... hi guys and what did I miss?

The answer is NOTHING CAUSE I WAS FREAKIN THERE!!!!
I sereneded the entire announcing team
I chanted random wrestling names
I did my first evar ECW cheer
I did the wave
I danced the flamingo (poorly)
And most importantly.... I saw Ziggles SHOW THE WORLD!!!!

My 1st ever live Raw and it was awesome even from the cheap seats! I already loved my Uncle Ray but after sending my brother and I to the show tonight with the free tickets he scored from work this week he becomes my fave for at least the next year (sorry Kev, Larry and Connor!)

The crowd was so amazing and I am so lucky that I craptastically fluked into going to that show. I don't even care how bad Mania sucked now!

We just got home after going to Denny's to "cool off from the show" as bro put it but yea, WOW! Soooooooo happy girl right now!!!! Sorry I missed you guys last night but this has been the family trip ever!

TheManofPA: robsul82: Oh, FARK OFF JOE BUCK

Did he piss in your shoes or something?


I heard that ...

Joe Buck Pissed In My Shoes
a short narrative by NakedReporta

Back when I was 11 and living in St. Louis, my parents decided I was too smart to be wasting my time in public schools and started seeking out private schools. The choice was eventually narrowed to two: John Burroughs and Country Day. I took the admittance test for each, but a kid I really hated from the public school I had attended was also trying to get into Burroughs, so I tanked that test.

Come fall, I was a seventh-grader at St. Louis Country Day School (known as CODASCO for short), whose famous alums include Vincent Price and John Danforth. And so began a year of sheer living hell. Most of the kids at CODASCO came from monied families, while I was this socially inept middle-class kid who wore the same Sears-bought suit every day. I was an immediate target.

One of my classmates was Joe Buck, the son of legendary Cardinals announcer Jack Buck. Joe was kind of a big, fat kid, but he had all the airs of social entitlement. Typical of the kind of stupid crap Buck would pull on me was to ask me if I "knew" my mother or to mock my attire. On more than one occasion, he was one of the ringleaders as five or six kids would decide to simultaneously throttle me.

But the final indignity came on a spring afternoon when we had gym class. We all changed into our standard-issue t-shirts and shorts and trotted out to the baseball field. All, that is, except Joe Buck, who bolted out of the locker room about a minute behind the rest. And when gym period was over, and we returned to the locker room, there were my Docksides-knockoff loafers, filled with the acrid stench of urine. Buck denied it, and the gym teacher didn't really give a shiat.

I had to wear my gym sneakers the rest of the day, then tearfully explain to my parents what had happened. They decided to press the issue, and it culminated in Joe and his mom and my mother and I all meeting with the headmaster. Joe denied it, I couldn't prove it, and the headmaster made us shake hands. I knew the remaining months were only going to be worse. The group beatings and mockery intensified. I barely passed my way through the seventh grade, and the next year I was back in public school. The torment continued -- hey, I was a real dork -- but at least it was free.

Look, kids can do cruel things. Joe was looking to be one of the guys, and I was an easy mark. He couldn't have any idea that my home life was simultaneously crumbling, and that what could have been a respite (time in school, away from home) was instead just compounding my nightmare. I suppose I should forgive the guy. But I can't.

I've managed to slog through a pretty respectable career as a writer. Joe, with his family ties and -- even I have to admit -- considerable talent, is the voice of FOX Sports. And every time I watch a marquee sporting event on FOX, I can't help but pause and reflect that, all those many years ago, that prick pissed in my shoes.

The_Y2P_Problem: hachimaki2234: The_Y2P_Problem: God farking damn it, what the fark is wrong with you?!

You want people to cheer for the Miz, but you make him look like a god damn fluke with a one day title reign!  And you've made Barrett look like a chump for weeks, but then he wins out of nowhere?

Just..... fark.

And watch, eventually the credibility of the belt will diminish even further, and people will stop caring about it at all.

I see what you did there.  You only made me sadder.


I've been sad about it for a while. You're talking about a belt that was held by guys like Piper, Bret Hart, Steamboat, Steve Austin, Mr. Perfect...and now look at it. Flip flopping every week, or night, as we just saw.

It would go back to being such if they merged the WHC and WWE belts.

WWE belt should go:

WWE
IC
Hardcore

US
Tag
Divas
Women's Champ
