  1. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    This needs to happen.
  2. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    Yeah, that's what I mean! The Lethal Lottery ruled! Maybe they switch it up so it's not a Battle Royal among "survivors," but some other was of crowning a single winner.
  3. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    I'm the only person in America who actually loved BattleBowl. Bring that back!
  4. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    This seems like a themed "house show" with the card already stated. They don't do that for PPVs. I wonder if they'll run it as a network special, like the Live ones with Brock last year?

    Bring back Halloween Havoc, too!
  6. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    Will you stop?
  7. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    There hasn't been one that I know of, but it wouldn't surprise me. I was at an indy show in Chicago many years ago – might have been Windy City Pro – and one of the acts was a group called "The Furies" who wore baseball gear. I didn't get it until I saw the film The Warriors. I think there's probably a lot of obscure stuff on the Indys.
  8. What Floats your Boat?

    That shirt is amazing. I must have it.

    I was glad to see her do her sweet elbow drop finish after hearing WWE was gonna make her change it because "Bayley owns that move."

    Anything's possible, but it'd look awfully bad to the boys in the back to fine them for bleeding during a match and then blade yourself during a promo segment. Not that Vince is above being a hypocrite or anything. EDIT: Definitely not "confirmed" or anything but some speculation online is that Vince pre-bladed and they treated it/covered it up to make it easier for him to bleed.
  11. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    Yeah, there was zero time for Vince to blade there. He started bleeding immediately and the camera was on him as soon as he hit the mat. Busted open.

    We'll have to agree to disagree here. Sami Zayn (BBtV's favorite wrestler, btw) and his career doesn't mean anything for JJ necessarily. The last two weeks were all about showing that Jason Jordan "can hang" with the top guys and have good, competitive matches. Mission accomplished. A loss isn't always a negative. If WWE follows up well from here, he'll be in an infinitely better spot than had he made Curtis Axel tap a couple times.
  13. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    You really think beating Curt Hawkins and Rhyno is better than losing hard fought matches to the two top faces in WWE, and having each show Jordan some respect after the match?
  14. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    Because losing two closely contested matches to John Cena and Roman Reigns isn't jobbing.
  15. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    That's interesting. I've seen that botch many times. It's brutal. But I'd never heard it floated that it was a "shoot" on this poor dude.
  16. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    Made this a separate post because it's only tangentially about Dolph, but you know what gimmick was great and should have been so much bigger? "Borne Again" Matt Borne in ECW. For those that don't know this, it's Matt Borne (who played Doink in the WWF), sort of mentally stuck between the gimmick and the man who played it. FANTASY BOOKING ALERT: I wonder if an updated version of that could work for Dolph, but where he's sarcastically and menacingly adopts like 30% of a clown gimmick, but he plays it straight (not like he mentally cracked or anything). You want me to dance? You want me to tell jokes. You want me to be your clown? Fine, I'll be your clown. Maybe not for Dolph. Maybe not at all.
  17. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    Indeed Stunt Double Sandow was the man. Also, I don't think this portends an "imitation" gimmick for Dolph. I could be wrong, but it seemed like he was dismissing all that stuff rather than "trying them on."
  18. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    Glorious doesn't fit Nakamura at all.
  19. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    Ziggler should definitely get at least partial blame for his current status. Unless somebody is at Gorilla Position saying "you need to go out there and be a poor man's HBK and make sure the rare offense you get looks weak and ineffective" that is. But I think he's too talented to be where he is right now. Maybe this sarcastically-entertaining gimmick they're teasing can give him a fresh coat of paint. Because the HBK/Motley Crue hybrid (Pre-)Show Stealer thing has run its course.
  20. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    Surprised? No. Still taken aback? Yeah.
  21. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    Glad to see Naitch up and wheelin' and dealin'. But I wasn't prepared for how old he looks. Hopefully as he gets further down the road to recovery he starts to look healthier and more vibrant.
  22. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    A huge number of WCW themes were instrumental one-note-different ripoffs of popular songs. A few for example: DDP = Smells Like Teen Spirit Chris Jericho = Even Flow Shane Douglas = Perfect Strangers (the original was his ECW theme) Rick Steiner = Welcome to the Jungle Jeff Jarrett = Cowboy nWo theme = Several Jimi Hendrix Songs Brian Knobbs = My Sharona (which is just weird and hilarious to me)
  23. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    I've heard wrasslin' themes in other commercials as well. The only one I can remember offhand is Booker T.'s theme being used for some cologne ad. Also, Yoshi Tatsu's WWE theme was in this early Portlandia sketch.
  24. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    We did touch on it briefly. Personally I don't care about this. There are a select few entrances that I think "need" pyro, but overall most pyro feels tacked on anyway. Kane without pyro wouldn't be the same. Batista had pyro incorporated in a natural way. AJ Styles will be just fine.
  25. WWE No Mercy: 24 September 2017

    Cena's going back to SmackDown when he's done filming this next movie. So that, coupled with just general knowledge of how WWE does things makes me really skeptical they'll ever turn Reigns heel, let alone at No Mercy. I don't think they'd let Reigns cheat to win then leave the Franchise broken and beaten on the mat unless there was at least one more match coming.
