  1. What's great about the Gambler is he really shouldn't have existed in 1999. That gimmick was so early-90s WCW Saturday Night. It's kind of like a lame Vince McMahon "occupational gimmick," but done so in a half-assed southern wrestling way. A cartoony gimmick without WWF's slick presentation.
  2. lol, they had the worst tag team names, but I kinda loved them. Agreed that Super Barrio Bros. was a huge miss.
  3. Our discussion last week about multi-man matches is underscored by Money in the Bank. We're getting another shallow card.
  4. There probably was in WCW, and they likely competed only on WCW Saturday Night. The name feels kinda dated.
  5. I think the Rock counts in the same way that Triple H should.
  6. Was just going to post this. Totally agree. There's a difference between Bret "Hitman" Hart and "The Excellence of Execution" Bret Hart. Forgetting for a minute that I love both those nicknames for Bret Hart, in current WWE there are too many "non-primary nicknames" for lack of a better term - including secondary nicknames for guys who already have nicknames, plus add-on names that aren't part of a guy's "ring name." KEEP: "The Viper" Randy Orton, "The Game" HHH, "The Big Red Machine" Kane, "The World's Strongest Man" Mark Henry, "The World's Largest Athlete" The Big Show, "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles, "Y2J" Chris Jericho ALSO KEEP: Non-primary nicknames based on a current, but likely temporary gimmick like "The New Face of America" Kevin Owens or "The King of the Cruiserweights" Neville. SHELVE: All the rest of them. I mean, once in awhile you can say Dean Ambrose is "the lunatic fringe of WWE" or "Seth Rollins was the architect of the Shield." NEVER EVER SAY: "The Big Dog" Roman Reigns
  7. Interesting to hear a guy like Jericho saying going off script could cost most guys their career, when HHH and WWE Management are always talking about taking chances and grabbing brass rings and crap. It sounds like that's a bunch of lip service, and they most certainly do not want guys taking chances unless those chances have been pre-approved.
  8. That was a great episode of SmackDown Live tonight.
  9. Another episode of wrestling is subjective. See, I loved the Dunne/Bate match, and if it was missing any(two)thing(s) it would be, IMO: a) 5-10 more minutes the benefit of being regular NXT characters and a stronger build to the match Either way, whether you liked it or loved it, I look forward to these two fighting for the UK title when the UK show starts.
  10. Great show. I'm so mad at Psycho Killer for splitting up my favorite tag team and at the same time I can't wait for this feud! Also, Meltzer gave Dunne vs. Bate 4 stars. I've seen a lot of matches he's given 4 stars to and Dunne vs. Bate blew most of them away. I can't help but feel that if this match took place at the Tokyo Dome he'd give it the full 5 stars.
  11. He's like 38, 39. Something like that. Don't think he's 40 yet. And he's been gone for a little under 3 1/2 years. If memory serves, he peaced out right after the 2014 Royal Rumble.
  12. Speaking of fantasy booking, I'd love it if Triple H wrestled at NXT Takeover (and not WrestleMania) next April. My smarky idea was we get a Triple H "creator" promo at the Takeover before SummerSlam or Survivor Series, only to be interrupted by a voice over the PA "Triple H, if you really think you're the Creator of NXT...I'm afraid I've got some BAD NEWS!" Barrett, of course, being the first NXT winner long before Triple H assumed control, and the leader of the NXT contingent "Nexus" in WWE. And then Wade Barrett vs Triple H headlines Takeover New Orleans.
  13. I have zero capital, but a similar idea popped into my head that it would be cool to try and coax Punk into a one-off "Superfight" iPPV event, and to promote it much like UFC promotes their events. Sure, it's called "UFC 214" or whatever, but it might as well be "McGREGOR VS DIAZ." I think I'd definitely shell out up to $20 for CM Punk vs Big Name Indy or Japanese Guy, with an undercard of young up-and-comers.
  14. I'm all in favor of giving new guys chances, but I hate the idea of the WWE Title match NOT going on last, but I also think Orton v. Mahal is definitely not a PPV closing match.
  15. Whatever it's called, whatever they're doing is working.
