Dolphins1925's Twitter account was suspended, and he only posted about 3 results. His comment, via Reddit, about the main event:


UPDATE: I have received news from my source that the script for the Main Event has been changing CONSTANTLY; and that the newest script of results are not known by anybody but a VERY select few in the company.

Whatever the case may be, WWE finally got the finish on lockdown in time to pull it off. I think Dolphins is probably done as a leaker.

CapnPlaty: sensible things...

Punk is now without a feud since Lesnar is likely to disappear for a while. And going after the other Heyman guy (Axel) for his belt seems beneath Punk's caliber. Punk belongs in the title mix somehow, and part of me was hoping for a heel turn on his part to take on DBD at WrestleMania next year (with Cena matched against Brock Lesnar).

more sensible things...


Punk/Axel could be an interesting way to cut a midcard belt. Punk takes it away beause he can, then shiatcans it because it's beneath him to hold a Jr B title. The IC or US title should be retired or turned into a TV title that actually gets defended in non PPV situations.

Tonight's RAW thread can now be found here. :-)

I've been shouting forever that the WWE and World titles need to be unified, and the U.S. and Intercontinental titles need to be unified, particularly now that the brand expansion is over.  Do that, then never have a belt holder job on TV except in specific, special storyline advancing situations.  Make those belts mean something again.

I spent 15 minutes last night during the PPV trying to explain to my neighbor (watching for the first time) the difference between the "WWE" championship and the "World" championship.
 
2013-08-19 5:15:39 PM  
So I was reading the thread while Ortoning at work and I've been kicking around and processing some of the comments I've seen.  Figured I'd weigh in.

There are dozens of ways this could all hash out, but there are two extremes, one potentially awesome and one rather deflating.

On one extreme, I would agree with verbaltoxin in that we could be heading into a "Reality Era" for the WWE.  I feel like he means it more in the types of wrestlers being smaller, more technically sound.  No more giants, no more muscle bound guys.  Your monsters are big guys like Bray Wyatt rather than big guys like Kane or the Great Khali.  I say it also extends to the fanbase and how it's been reacting.  The fans are also going in a direction where people care less and less about who's heel and who's face and instead, they're cheering for whoever the fark they like and that changes based on the city.  In that sense, it's more like a boxing/MMA style response of "hey, I like this fighter/this guy's from my hometown/fark it, we just like this guy for some reason" rather than the storyline saying this guy's a good guy and this guy's a bad guy. 

Cena is the perfect example for how characters would work should this go down.  He's got his core character no matter where he goes and he adjusts accordingly.  He taunts the crowd subtly when it's against him, he plays to them when they're with him.  The WWE plays up the fact that people react to Cena no matter what and really, that's what matters and as the fanbase gets harder and harder to control, I think the WWE may just start throwing it open with more and more people. 

After all, let's look at some people who are well liked:  Punk's a dick that people gravitate towards, Daniel Bryan was a smug prick to Cena the Raw before Summerslam and was cheered, people love seeing Brock smash, and the Wyatt Family gets cheered for being so awesome and different even though they're supposed to be heels.  The people that the crowd reacts to the most, they've made their own minds up on based on their personalities and in ring abilities.  I think Daniel Bryan's sudden emergence despite the fact he was really not a real "face" character is the tipping point and while there will be some characters will have more of a natural heel/face reaction, it won't be forced the same way it is now.  Will this be a biatch to book?  Oh yeah.  Will the danger be too many characters showing up with similar personalities to allow for that fluidity?  Yes.  But every era has had it's negatives that were glossed over because every era is really a product of the times.

Then there's the other extreme, and I think this is where Bobby and the Gorilla are coming from, which is we get kicked in the balls as WWE says "fark you, we know what's best" and we get the same old guys in the main event while most of the emerging stars get shuffled down the card.  Because let's face it, we're kind of used to getting kicked in the balls, especially when HHH is involved in things.  The Gagne is a perfect nickname because he has this fixation on being the focal point and while there's been several times he's done what's right to get someone over (Cena, Batista, He Who Shall Not Be Named), there's been several times where he's walked away victorious and the other guy was worse for his involvement (Jericho, Orton, the Spirit Squad, Booker T, Punk).  I think if HHH weren't so front and center, the warning sirens wouldn't be blaring like they are.  But his involvement reeks of "Here's the same old shiat, have fun". 

I know we'll end up with a product between the extremes, but I'm actually leaning towards the possibility of a new era.  While I object to using the PPV to sell the free TV show by having Orton cash in last night rather than tonight even, I'm ok with what was done and I'm even ok with Orton getting the title and HHH screwing Daniel Bryan over.  You need to have the old guard resist a new era and Daniel Bryan seems to be the rallying point for the fans that can push this new era.  They fit the description perfectly and I think they'll be good foils.  Throw in Cena as the icon who just wants to wrestle and be the champ but gets drug into the bullshiat and CM Punk as the guy who started the revolution, but is jealous a guy he's always been compared to has stolen his spot as the leader of it, and you've got extra elements in the eventual path to Orton/Bryan at Wrestlemania XXX where you have the HBK/Austin passing of the torch moment and good things hopefully happen. 

Or we get Cena/Orton XXXXVIII at Wrestlemania XXX with HHH beating Daniel Bryan and/or CM Punk at Mania to give everyone a kick to the balls with a running start.
 
2013-08-19 5:26:22 PM  
Any word on when the greenlight is?

Also, just one thing on the cash-in last night vs. tonight's Raw: Basically the running theme has been "Why go to the PPV, the next night of Raw is better". They needed to have a major cash-in on a PPV once in awhile (WHC has done it, but rarer lately for WWE title), you have to sell the PPV as being the bigger deal in the end.

I tend to fall into the more positive camp, which is rarer for me in these situations. Any guess on who opens the show?

Get rid of the US title and keep the IC belt.  Formally acknowledge that Big Gold is not one the same level as the WWE Title.  I am all for fewer titles but WWE cant get rid of the IC belt.

I'd prefer to keep the IC belt too. It has a great history. Either way the mid card belts should be defended on TV to build up the new talent rather then having champions job to higher rated guys in non title matches. At the very least the US title should be defended on one of the 2 top shows every week.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_WWE_Intercontinental_Champions

The recent guys have been deserving.  The belt itself isnt featured as being important so it isnt.  Have a IC Title tournament.  Let midcarders beat the shiat out of each other for no reason and start some feuds.  Have a back and forth number one contenders feud.  I dont know how to book a show but I do know there are ways to get some interest in inexperienced talent that doesnt involve featuring them on the mic.  But let's be honest, that isnt the product WWE is selling.

The MITB brief case has become a more important "accessory" than the midcard titles.  Of the last 10 IC champs only two have won the MITB (Miz and Ziggler).  The IC belt is no longer used as a way to build a guy from midcard to top of the card.  It is a something to give an upper midcarder who is stuck in a holding pattern.  Cody's IC run legitimized him in the eyes of the fans.  He has been doing great work but he still hasent had a serious sniff at "top belt."

So in short, as started rambling there and I dont even know if I am making sense.....Poor Cody.

Make the US belt the television title, keep the IC belt around for nostalgia, and formally acknowledge that the WHC =/= WWE Championship. With the expansion of stars having more titles to feud over is a good thing as long as creative is, well, creative. Right now the IC belt is in purgatory, the US belt is meh, and the WHC is acknowledged by everyone but the WWE as a second tier title.

And don't get me started on the malaise in the tag team division.

I like the tournament idea. I hadn't thought of that. I still think Jericho would be a good guy to have fight the WWE to make the belt a prestigious title again though. He has held it 9 times.
If not a tournament, maybe have the US title be a TV title that can be cashed in for an IC shot.
