This post is simply about the small, irrational things that maybe wind you up, or tick you off every time you see/hear them!
Maybe they don't annoy you long enough to make you hit the FF button, or change channel, but just enough to make you subconsciously sigh/roll eyes..

For me;

Michael Cole calling Rhodes mask an 'Acrylic Face mask'. It wouldn't be Acrylic. Acrylic is brittle and shards when broken which, in my opinion would make it far too dangerous for a facial mask. Its probably polycarbonate, like protective goggle would be. Sorry completely Geeky hate, but it just winds me up!

The bluring out of the WWF logo on vintage collection and such like. We all know its fucking WWF, the World Wildlife Federation would not be ringing up Vince to moan if they saw the logo on a vintage collection video surely???!!!

Matt Morgans Dragon mouth thingy tattoo...

Teddy long saying 'playa'. Its 2011. Even if he said 'you da bomb' it would be more socially relevant.

Tommy Thunder
11-03-2011, 03:50 PM
When Cole doesn't call the match.
When Santino wins with the Cobra.
The fact that WWE refuse to have Chong Shena take a pinfall/submission loss.
The fact that Hornswoggle is still employed by WWE while several other talents have been released.
The fact that NXT could have been such a good show, but WWE fucked it up so bad on so many levels.

Hi guys. I'm a new member here, I've been reading news and forums for a while but never posted, untill now.

What makes me irrationally annoyed and gets my back up in WWE are the rules in cage matches, particularly in regards to the door. The point in of a cage match in my opinion is to prevent the competitors from leaving the ring and forcing them to fight. To me the rule that competitors can ask for the door to be opened and simply walk out is ridiculous because it is so easy to walk through a door. When a superstar is making their way to the door (in slow motion to add drama) it is beyond obvious that they could just quickly jump out of the ring. The fact that they make their way very slowly, crawling, when 1 minute earlier they were running between the ropes for me shatters the illusion of a kayfabe environment. Also, why anyone would try and climb out of the cage when the door is open is beyond me.

Does anyone else feel this way?

Welcome to the forums! Yup it is a pretty ridiculous thing, that's why I prefer cell or chamber matches! As they say though, logic has no place in wrestling!! :p

Hi. Not to be a party pooper, but since this concerns both WWE & TNA, I feel obligated to move it to The Tea Spot (because I can't think of anywhere better) Also, I'm glad you didn't go the route of others Bandages and make the same thread in both sections and only swapping WWE in the title for TNA.

I hate that. :)

100% yes!! who on gods earth green lighted that feature??
And in that situation where you get the wrestler 1/2 outside
the door then their opponent runs and drags them back... soo bloody

doors in cage matches

when a match is advertised as the "most brutal/punishing/etc"

Michael Cole refusing to do his damn job as a play by play announcer and call the damn match, seriously that leaves me screaming at my TV "Call
the damn match asshole!!!"

Unprotected chair shots to the head.

Sin Cara's match lighting (Don't know if they are still doing this)

Old stables being resurrected (especially with different members)

limited movesets (We all know that Cena can actually do more than 5 moves, let him... and seriously WTF is with the Divas?)

Kevin Nash returning annoyed me. I seriously don't want to see a Triple H vs Nash feud or anything involving Nash for that matter.

I am annoyed that the Jersey Shore is getting mixed with my wrestling. I'm sorry I hate Jersey Shore and even though I understand the show is popular with a bunch of people I just can't see why the WWE or TNA feels they need to promote it.

Let's see anything else...oh the fact that Impact hasn't got a hold of Anthony Hopkins to exorsize the demon know has Karen Jarrett. I mean I'm surprised a big game hunter hasn't came after her yet or a wild hyena hasn't mistaken her voice for a mating call.

Babyfaces saving each other: If four heels are beating down a face, why is one extra face able to take them all down? Why not jump him the second he slides in the ring? Or at least have a back and forth brawl and not just have the faces dominate them in seconds.

IrkenInvader
11-03-2011, 11:30 PM
The fact that John Cena is main event even when he isn't the champ. They drop the title to upper mid card so Cena stays at the top.


And I hate the fact that Cena is permanently the #1 contender no matter what happens. 'John Cena broke his neck last week and now hes in a wheelchair. Quick! Give him the belt so he can keep his heat while he recovers!'


That Ryder is being put over in short matches.

Dolph Ziggler has put over every single celebrity but they still won't let him be in the main event. John Cena doesn't put any over.

When someone is alone in the ring and is faced with another bigger, badder, meaner somebody gradually encroaching upon them - be it coming down the ramp, or cornering off the ring. And the said first someone can either: see the 14ft invisible wall surrounding the ring that nobody else can see; or they have the pea size brain that can't seem to comprehend the 2in wide ropes are separated with the adequately human sized gaps of free air with which can be exited through in quite the same manner as they performed upon entering the ring.

Either that or they have a similar issue with ropes, and gaps of air, much akin to the problem the aliens in 'Signs' had with a wooden door.

Case in point: the Karma destruction of Divas after their matches.

Kinda annoys me I guess.

Not the actual commentary no, but when they do a close up on them while they announce a match sometimes they are patched into the PA system. I stress 'sometimes' though, most of the time they don't but we see Cole and Lawler on the jumbotron with no sound. That is why you can occasionally here the crowd chant 'we can't hear you' during those moments.

The Royal Rumble and/or battle royals have always been my favorite gimmick matches but it bugs me to no end when I see a guy, who can bench 300+ pounds, can't get Kofi Kingston over the top rope because, "He has his arm wrapped around the top rope! Not Fair!!!" Or the old, "Whelp, he's halfway over the top so Ima just turn around. Wait, he landed on the apron and just rolled back in? Can he do that?"

Also, if I never see another torture rack or bear hug I will be just fine.
