Hey Vince, all you’re doing is making me root for Becky Lynch even more.
I like to think Joe wrote this nursery rhyme himself.
Thug life Becky is my jam
Yeah I'm going to need a minute.
WWE seems to spend all their energy trying to make a babyface act like a babyface. They just need to make their babyfaces act like heels then book their heels to just...oppose them. Let the heels just undercut them, cheat them, do the little things, and let the babyfaces be badasses who beat people up and such.
They've got it all backwards but the solution is so easy.
It's like they forgot 1998-2000 even existed.
Agree. Having all baby faces have to overcome odds is played out. Let them be badasses.
They got so much milage out of simply bait-and-switch booking Steve Austin to win/lost/almostwin/win/lose the title between 1998-2000, it's unreal how simple the booking was. It worked because the character was fun and worth cheering for.
Characters are boring now, which means no amount of booking, storytelling or any other idea is going to make me want to tune in to watch them.
Vince is old school and thinks he can just book people as faces and heels and fans will go along with it because they don’t know better. It’s the age of social media though, fans know more about the wrestlers than Vince probably does. Instead of booking them as classic face/heel, just promote their personalities. It’s more authentic
Woo, this is an all-timer
I'm trying to see where La Parka hurt his leg in that video. Immediately clutched his knee after the spear, but his leg seemed to be lifted ok and not planted during it.
Yeah he did nothing wrong. Tatum was too close to him, and besides that he got less air on his jump than Big Show.
Roman the guest picker on GameDay.
Srs? What game are they going to?
Can't figure that one out. Raw in Dallas, and maybe Coach called in a favor?
With it being a sports show and Roman being a former player, and comfortable being himself on the big stage, I bet he comes off well
"NOT SO FAST LEE! HERE COMES THE BIG DOG! WHEELS UP HAS BROUGHT HIM TO A NEW YARD!" - Reece Davis
Roman is fine on regular media. I just hate when gameday has guest pickers that aren't involved in the game. If it was a GT game they were at (lol) it would make sense.
hey me too
He is comfortable being himself on the big stage? Vince never lets him be himself in the ring on the mic. If he did, people would probably like him better
So Corbin tells the shield that they will be stripped of all titles if they return.
No titles are stripped.
Corbin somehow is now going to jail.
WTF is going on. I know the product is bad on RAW but who the fuck said this makes any types of sense. And why the fuck do I keep watching this shit tier product.
Smackdown on the other hand was ok for a go home show.
Liked the AJ promo, that Joe promo/story was amazing. I enjoyed the Bryan/Miz stuff.
I know I am in the minority, but I just don't care for Daniel Bryan. He bores me. Then you add Brie into it and I am done with any segment they are in.
WWE has done a great job of making him feel like just a guy since he came back.
Brie definitely sucks though, boycotting all WWE until I can be assured that I won't hear her theme music
This just makes me laugh
There's not a Takeover this weekend is there? Next one War Games before Survivor Series?
In general, they do they do the Big Four and then one other when the event is at a major location like Chicago or Philly
Kenny and Ishii killed each other again this morning
Roman, true to character, totally lacked charisma on his Gameday entrance. He did alright picking I guess.
Yeah, he picked LSU because he has a friend in New Orleans and ASU because he has worked out there. Great analysis, champ!
So basically every guest picker, neato
Watching the 98 hell in a cell match. Forgot terry funk was the first guy out. It’s so negligent they let mick take that choke slam after the cage fell apart when they first got up there
