They need some new things.

When I was a kid they started doing the Royal Rumble, Survivor Series, Wrestlemania, Great American Bash, etc.. now, they've got to be getting old. They need some new event brands.

After last night's shiatstorm of a show, I got nothing to add on top of the checklist.  Pittsburgh's awesome crowd did the talking for us all, imo.

Weekly RAW Checklist (or for watching fark burn)

originally created by ManofPa, Dougie AXP, and hundreddollarman



1) Every 25th post is "ARMBAR!" & every 1004th post is "moss covered 3 handled family gredunza"
2) Karate Explosion, the weekly heel we deserve, asks why this isn't in the Entertainment tab
3) Pretty GM is stalked by KellyKellyKelly
4) "Never mind that shiat, here comes Mongo!"
5) Bah Gawd King, that's the nPo's music!
6) I AM THE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!
7) NOPE!
8) Because Fark you, that's why
9) [REDACTED]
10) The Great and Powerful ShiningWizard appears
11) Dolph Ziggler's guide to selling and athletic sex
12) Mizark Appreciation Time
13) Out of nowhere, it's VINTAGE ORTON!
14) Where's Cena? Is someone talking about Cena? WHERE'S CENA?
15) It's best-ah for this business-ah!
16) YOU BLOW OUT AN ELECTRIC LAMP!
17) Screw it, you aren't even reading this one. ARMBRA! (link it NSFW)
18) Once a PPV cycle, just like Taker....the "It's Me" pic returns
19) JFSP shows up late and gives a full recap; posts Cena (ultra-rare quality item)
20) Last APP Reference Standing
21) "Bobby, what's that?"  "No worries, Gorilla, that's just Tony making his 'meh' face"
22) An FWC member loses their smile
23) BONUS: FWC member in the crowd and/or seen on TV

Or, in the least, bring back some older things, such as BattleBowl or War Games: The Match Beyond*.


* Only on the condition that the match is ALWAYS referred to by its full name, "War Games: The Match Beyond."

Batista has given Vince an easy out

With him flipping off that fan, he has a valid reason to remove him from his push, and that will allow him to save face and give it to DB

or they can just give him the old heel turn and somehow Randy Orton becomes a face.

You people make me sick.  "WAH BUTT TITSA WON".  Shut up.  They needed to push an up-and-comer and they did it.  Who should have won then?  Name one person who you would have said "YES!" to winning?

Only until Batista quits.  Batista is my favorite wrestler because I walked for miles inside this pit of danger.  I've swallowed down a thousand years of anger.  The weight of the world is falling on my shoulders.
A place where no one follows me...I walk alone.
 
2014-01-27 05:20:19 PM  
If the fans aren't going to shiat on this show in the first ten minutes I'm not going to bother to watch the rest. Maybe take a big break off. Won't be missing anything big.
 
2014-01-27 05:20:19 PM  
Gotta love Mick Foley's rant about last night:

HEY WWE....WHAT THE F? Yes, I'm going to put a brick through my TV. It's just going to have to wait until tomorrow. I had every intention of putting a brick through my TV tonight, after seeing that Daniel Bryan was not even entered in the Royal Rumble match, let alone going to win the thing. But, upon seeing their dad with a brick in his hand, my younger children got a little bit scared, thinking their dad had lost his mind. A rather spirited debate about the wisdom of following through on the promise to put a brick through my TV ensued with my wife - and, as is usually the case in marital debates, I, being the husband, did not emerge victorious. Honestly, the points she made about mercury and glass fragments everywhere were pretty good ones. But I'm still going to put a brick through my TV. It's just going to have to wait until tomorrow - when the kids are in school, and I can take the TV outside the house for the actual throwing of the brick. Granted, it's not nearly as dramatic as doing it live, right after the Rumble, but at least I will be keeping my word. As I mentioned on Twitter, I've never felt so disgusted at the conclusion of a WWE (or any) PPV. Like many of you out there, I just don't get it. This Daniel Bryan thing is a phenomenon. You get it. I get it. The fans in Pittsburgh (yes, I was thinking of writing "RIGHT TH...but I'm just not in a cheap pop mood) got it. But tonight, for the first time, I had to admit to myself that the powers that be are just not going to get it. And that makes me sad. I'm just honestly sad, just flat out farking sad (yes, I dropped an F-bomb there to emphasize how F'ing sad I am for the guys who bust their butts night in and night out - Ziggler, Punk, Bryan, etc - with no hope of getting their shot at this year's Mania. You know who else I'm sad for? Me. In my two years as an official WWE Ambassador, I never once had to lie about my enthusiasm for the company or the product. Now, although I am no longer officially an Ambassador for WWE (believe it or not, my only official role in WWE is as GM for Saturday Morning Slam, a contract that ends in one month) I was till looking forward to being part of the biggest event of the year. I'll probably end up going anyway. But I'm about 1/6th as excited about it as I was just a few hours ago. I wanted so badly to hear 75,000 WWE fans chanting "YES" - and seeing fans walk away absolutely ecstatic about the outcome of a PPV for the first time in a while...a long while. But when given the chance to make it happen (unless they've got something MAJOR up their sleeve) WWE's answer tonight was a resounding "NO, NO, NO".

So is Batista flipping off fans a work to set up heel turn or was he just being his usual d-bag self?

Well, figuring the show probably will start off with Batista giving a speech about winning, we should know inside of 60 seconds if Cleveland's gonna be cool or not.

I cant believe The New Age Outlaws are back and are the tag champs. Why not bring back The Headbangers. Wrestlemania 30 can be NAO vs Headbangers for the tag titles.
Why even have a tag division?
While we're at it bring back X-Pac. Have the Corp kick out Kane. Mania 30 can be Kane vs X-Pac!
Maybe bring back what's left of Chyna. Pay Jeff Jarrett for one night only to whack Chyna in the head with a guitar and then place an apron on her.
Good times!
Then we can bring back Mae Young... Oh wait.

From PWInsider -

At no point was Bryan considered as a participant for the Rumble match....Vince and HHH both acknowledged the noise backstage. However, there are no current plans to change their WrestleMania booking as a result.

JRs and Lance Storms and Jimmy Korderases of the world looking really smart with the "just keep waiting, it's not over yet!" stuff, mmhmm.

It's been said many times before, but WWF winning the Monday Night Wars was the worst thing that could have happened to the fans of pro wrestling.  If there was a legitimate alternative for the fans (and the wrestlers) to turn to, Creative couldn't ignore the fans the way they are ignoring them now.

When the fans responded to Mick Foley, the WWF shot him up the ranks and even put the heavyweight title on him ... that would have been unthinkable when he jumped from WCW.  When things like Jeff Jarrett's big push or Stone Cold's heel turn didn't take with the fans, the WWF didn't, couldn't, just shove it down the fans' throats.

Now that the WWE is the only game in town, they can push stale characters like Cena and Orton for a whole freaking decade.  The fans are clamoring for something new at the top of the card, and we are being fed the same guys who were fighting for the title in 2005.  And nothing will change because there isn't a WCW for the fans or snubbed wrestlers to turn to.  I honestly can't see anything changing for years.

"Danielson wins Rumble 2014" is something else to toss on the list of "if only WCW didn't go out of business/TNA didn't have its head up its ass" would have happeneds, right after Punk becomes #1 in 2011.

Prediction:  in the near future  the Wyatts will kidnap and brainwash Cena's Bella girlfriend.  They will call her Sister Abigail.   It will end with Cena and Bella Twin trying to emulate Macho Man/Elizabeth's celebration in the ring at Wrestlemania.  John Cena overcomes all odds and triumphs yet again!

The whole thing was a clusterfark from the moment 29 hit and anyone who was paying attention saw that Mysterio was not out there.  I wonder how many people in the arena figured it out before Rey actually ran out.

The bigger issue was that I counted at least 4 people, after Punk was introduced to start, that got a bigger pop when their music started than Batista.  I think the WWE seriously overestimated how much people cared about Batista.  At least with Rock and Lesner there was serious interest in their return, Dave managed to generate a giant, collective 'meh'.
