Last night was good.  The run to WM will be good.

I have been saying it since SummerSlam, Daniel Bryan will be standing tall or Cena will turn heel at the end of WM.  Either way it will be good.

Good morning fWc! Well, that pay-per-view was fun, wasn't it? OK, the ending sucked. But otherwise, it wasn't awful and certainly nothing was held in abeyance. I'll be lurking in the thread for most of the night; have to wrap up some holiday shopping. I still have no idea what to get the hundreddollarnephew. Suggestions welcome!

TOTAL DIVAS RECAP
I watch, and that's why I'm in therapy

The series ender! FINALLY! After six months of this derpstream, we have come to the end of the road. Let's check in with our "favorite divas" and see what they're up to.

First, on the Brie front, she and DBD go out for a camping trip at Big Sur. They hike all over God's Country (and tiring out the cameramen in the process) before Bryan gets on one knee and asks Stock Bella to marry him. She agrees, but sadly does not punctuate it with a hearty "YES! YES! YES!" They make their way back to their campsite only to find a dinner party waiting for them. All of their relatives had been snuck in by Nikki as part of a plan with DBD, and EVERYONE'S happy for the happy couple. And yet, there is a tinge of melancholy in Aftermarket's eyes and... (dramatic pause) John Cena is NOWHERE TO BE SEEN! More on those lovebirds later.

Meanwhile, another engaged couple imaking their way to anoher part of California. It's Eva Marie and her new fiance Jonathan. It's actually the second time that EMhas been engaged, as she helpfully explains that intended #1 was older than her and didn't meet with her parents' approval. She's taking Jonathan to met the folks, though, and things should work out oh so much better, right? RIIIIIIGHT.

Soon as as they arrive at Casa Evil Red, her dad immediately asks a ton of questions of Jonathan, and soon all the men of the house decide they don't care for this guy, his nose ring, or EM's name tattooed on his arm (in ARABIC, no less). At breakfast the next morning, after dodging questions about where the two of them slept last night, Eva Marie reveals her engagement ring and Jonathan asks for her dad's blessing. Instead of being relieved that someone would actually take the time to do this, Evil Dad loses his shiat and Mom says if they get married and then divorced, EM is not allowed back in the house. FYI, Eva Marie is almost 30.

The upshot is that the future Mr and Mrs Evil Red leave the house and EM decides that, having botched the family moment, she wants to elope. By the end of the episode, however, she decides that her work schedule won't allow the elopement and besides she wants Daddy to walk her down the aisle. And... scene.

On the Nikki-Cena front, we find out that Aftermarket is cleared to wrestle again. YAY! No more weird quasierotic tension between the twins over Aftermarket's work ethic. Turns out she has bigger fish to fry, though. During a pool party that she hosts at Cena's house for her former Hooters co-workers (seriously), she reveals to them that they might never have kids because John wants to no-sell his sperm. The Hooters vets all call BS on this, and at dinner later that night (we get the requisite reality show "champagne toast in a limo" shot during this segment) they grill him on kids and travel plans. Cena no-sells their questions and tells them that he told Nikki flat out on their first date that wasn't what he wanted.

(side note: I noticed during the pool party that Cena was nowhere to be seen amongst the gaggle of former Hooters girls lounging poolside in their bikinis, drinking, and sliding down the waterslide. Just an observation)

Nikki confesses all of this to her mom during her sister's engagement party and Mom tells her that she needs to be upfront with Cena about her desire to be a mom someday. She later confronts Cena and lets him know that seeing how happy her sister and future GOAT-in-law are made her realize what she wants in a relationship. John rises above such talk, though, and tells her for the 148th time that he doesn't want to get married or have kids, and Nikki finally says she has to think about their relationship. TO BE CONTINUED?

In Poor Nattie news, our favorite Total Diva wakes up in a haze in Las Vegas to discover that she drunk dialed Stephanie McMahon during a pub crawl on Bourbon Street. She ducks talking to SMH until the end of the show, certain that Natalie Blackhart will be in the IMPACT ZONE soon enough. It turns out that Stephanie hasa sense of humor about it. They play through the messages and they go like this:

*beep* "I'm Natalya Neidhart and I deserve to be Divas Champ. DO YOU KNOW WHO MY FATHER IS" *beep* "Wheresh my title? (clap clap clapclapclap)" *beep* "Shtefanie, why u no call bak? MIGUL! MIGUL COL!!!" *beep* "Heeeeey Schteff, I'm not wearing underwearr... Lesh ride Aw I'm gunna puke..."

Schteff takes it all in stride and assures Poor Nattie that she will indeed be Divas champ again (just not at TLC). Totes, hugs, and scene.

No angles with the 'Dactyls this week, and JoJo has apparently fallen into another dimension. But at least it's over...

Aw, sonofabiatch

In 2001, at the end of Wrestlemania X-Seven, Steve Austin turned heel by shaking Vince McMahon's hand and joining forces with him. The only problem with was that fans didn't want to boo Stone Cold.

The heel turn never really took, and eventually Austin reverted to his usual character.

I mention this because these days, when asked, Austin specifically uses this example as something he would have done differently in his career. He would have warned Vince of the Stunner and walked out of Wrestlemania as his normal bad ass Stone Cold self, not because he wanted to continue down that path, but because the fans were the ones who wouldn't accept a heel Stone Cold.

The moral of this story is: you can't force a heel turn, because the people will say "fark you", that's why, and keep on cheering.

Regarding the unified title, the Big Gold's been shuttled off to the retired titles section, and Randy Orton is featured on the WWE superstars page with just the Big Logo belt. So no new belt, and no Andre belt.

That's a good explanation of why a Cena heel turn would be a dud: the kids don't want to boo him and would tune out, and the adults would whine that his heel turn didn't live up to the fantasy booking they posted on Reddit 7 months ago.

Just wanted to say that I was pretty honored for the rookie of the year slammy. It takes a lot of dedication to hate week in and week out this year. Its nice to see that my hard work was noticed.

Lastly, any of you folks on Xbox One? looking for friends. If so, my tag is Generic Prozak.. send an invite.

Cena and Austin are two separate characters in two different positions.  No one was calling for Austin to turn in 2001 out of staleness, Austin just wanted to work heel again.
 
2013-12-16 07:32:53 PM  
ok, so maybe i'm not quite getting the difference between a "heel turn" and a "gimmick change"...  does corporate's face/heel status determine the status of the roster? 'cuz it'd be really easy for me to look at cena doing a "fark this company" and still being the good guy... kinda like stone cold... might need tights if he's gonna play robin hood though. :)

I mention this because these days, when asked, Austin specifically uses this example as something he would have done differently in his career. He would have warned Vince of the Stunner and walked out of Wrestlemania as his normal bad ass Stone Cold self, not because he wanted to continue down that path, but because the fans were the ones who wouldn't accept a heel Stone Cold.

The moral of this story is: you can't force a heel turn, because the people will say "fark you", that's why, and keep on cheering.

That's a good explanation of why a Cena heel turn would be a dud: the kids don't want to boo him and would tune out, and the adults would whine that his heel turn didn't live up to the fantasy booking they posted on Reddit 7 months ago.

Cena and Austin are two separate characters in two different positions.  No one was calling for Austin to turn in 2001 out of staleness, Austin just wanted to work heel again.


If in 2 years WWE has moved up a third guy (Reigns, Big E, someone else) to be a high level babyface, then I can see a Cena turn being money. Right now though it leaves a huge money hole they can't fill.
