We talking about something like Hulk Hogan's Rock n Wrestling show I grew up on? I can't believe they let Sheik do some PSAs.

I can see it now.

Evan Borne PSA- Hey kids drugs don't make you cool, so just say no to drugs *he holds up a peace sign*
Director-CUT! THAT A WRAP.
Evan Borne-Cool can someone pass me the bong?
Camera man- Um Evan we are still live on the air.
Director-Really? *cell phone rings director answers* yep, okay, yeah....Evan it's Vince.
Evan-F*CK!

And here I was expecting a thread full of crying and rage. Impressive!

Obviously it's not going to be required viewing, and hey... if they have a quota on how many TV hours to waste on replays and flashbacks and they're filling it now, then that can only mean that they'll free up some time on RAW for something that's somewhat important. ...I hope.

Honestly if I were an underutilized talent at WWE and I saw that much TV time on RAW 1001 wasted on talking, commercials and replays/flashbacks, I'd be absolutely livid. I think the scariest part is that they gained a whole hour of TV and they still couldn't fit in a Divas match... not that I'm particularly hungry for a Divas match or nothing but there's an entire division there being ignored and that's depressing regardless of what division it is.

Again, I hope this Saturday morning show is going to relieve some of that pointless replay time. I know I'm going to see that Triple H/Brock Lesnar promo video on SmackDown tonight and I'm going to lose my mind because of it.

...and God damnit I can't stop looking at Akeem being a jive turkey.

But I seriously doubt she'll make an appearance to the arena. She'll most likely be backstage. Just a hunch.

What on earth do you think she'll be doing backstage? Making decisions? Sorry, I don't think so. She's probably just coming to be a special guest ref or something in DBD's matches

On Triple H (http://www.ewrestlingnews.com/news?Item%5Btags%5D=Triple%20H) vs. Lesnar: Really enjoyed the HHH/Lesnar business with @ShawnMichaels and @HeymanHustle adding greatly to the process. The segment left me wanting more which I perceive as a good thing. I was thinking that it would be a potentially long night for Shawn in his hometown, I speak from experience, but I was wrong. I was looking for the 'heater' and got an off speed pitch.

Can someone tell me what JR means by this?

Source: The Wrestling Observer

According to pro-wrestling blog The Wrestling Observer, former UFC champion Lesnar got into fisticuffs at a backstage rehearsal for a WWE ‘SummerSlam’ event. He and another pro-wrestler were working through a routine when things went awry.

"Lesnar left the building after getting into a physical altercation with fellow WWE superstar, Ryan Reeves, known in ring as Ryback.

Not much information is being let out, but the source says Lesnar was in the arena early to rehearse a major angle with SummerSlam opponent Triple H. Before things even began, Reeves, who was also in the building, got into a heated argument with Lesnar. It is uncertain what the argument was about.

Reeves put his hands on Lesnar, though the source tells us that people who witnessed it said Reeves was going to apologize. Lesnar shoved Reeves back and a shoving match ensued. Lesnar threw Reeves to the floor and hit him in the face three times before being pulled off.

Reeves suffered a laceration above his left eyebrow which is required stitches. “Ryback” will not be competing tonight as he was originally planned. Lesnar left the building immediately, and all efforts to reach him have failed.”

There has been no comment from the WWE or Lesnar on the alleged incident. If it did happen as reported it could be enough to end Lesnar’s contract with the company but he is a valuable asset and thus it is more likely to be swept under the carpet".

This was from August 6, 2012. It seems that Ryback's "red" eye he's recently been shown with is a small reminder for him to NOT piss off Lesnar. What a feud or storyline this could make. It's something that WWE creative can use to their advantage in the future for a decent feud instead of these squash matches Ryback's always in.

What do you think of this? Would Ryback vs. Lesnar be a good feud with a good build if WWE used this altercation as an angle for a storyline?

I think it has great potential and could make for some really good matches.

That's what people are saying, however no-one to my knowledge has proven that it is only a rumor. This was reported at UFC .com also, so I tend to believe that something might have happened between the two. It's 6 to 1 and a half dozen to the other on this one. But my main question has yet to be answered. Would this feud make for a great storyline? (Even if only rumor, it's something I believe that creative could work with).

GG_DUCE
08-10-2012, 11:56 AM
I'm going to guess that Lesnar would fncking destroy Ryback both "in-ring" and legit. Reeves/Ryback is a big dude and I'm sure he's a bada$$, but not compared to someone with the legit background that Lesnar has.
As far as in-ring, it would be interesting to see but I can't see Brock jobbing to Ryback either, ya know?
Personally, I'm thinking Wade Barrett is going to end Ryback's streak, but that's not the topic here.

Viperfish
08-10-2012, 11:58 AM
Well, they're two big guys which we're not going to see a whole lot of anymore with everyone getting smaller, so in terms of visual appeal(I know that sounds gay) it'll be good. Obviously Lesnar can go, but we haven't seen a whole lot of Ryback. It'll certainly give Ryback a believability factor to him after all these 2 on 1 squashes... though having said that he's earning that naturally by actually going up against guys on the roster and getting his share of offense against him.

The limiting factor between the two of them by far is promo ability. Brock can real-talk but with how fake and scripted everything is, real-talk isn't good enough. Ryback hasn't talked much so I don't know about him. I don't know if they can build a feud with words.

But my main question has yet to be answered. Would this feud make for a great storyline? (Even if only rumor, it's something I believe that creative could work with).

Dr. D, on a personal level I would get some enjoyment out of the feud as it would be a nice rub to Ryback for the "guy who brings back legitimecy back wrestling" to put him over. I think that if given to time to be in "wrestling form", Lesnar could do well in bringing out Rybacks positives that aren't very obvious. I think the Character that Ryback has at the moment would do well to outshine Lesnar on the mic (then again, Big Show outshines Lesnar on the mic) while Lesnar could add the in-ring that could help us see what Ryback in ring could truly be. I think what would make it truly interesting would be for Heyman to jump from Lesnar to Ryback. I think Heyman would be able to get Ryback over universally, the way he did with Taz and even Lesnar.

However, I do feel that this angle would be swiftly dismissed as pathetic, stupid, dumb by the IWC... And the smarks would simply call it Lesnar vs. Goldberg 2.0. With this story, the makings for a potential feud are there, but the creative department would really have to focus on making the feel "larger than life" and not just half ass it the way they do with so many other programs these days,

While not exactly proof, Ryan Clark went out of his way to say the story was false (http://www.ewrestlingnews.com/news/8073/rumor-killer-no-brock-lesnar-ryback-fight-at-raw), and I can't even remember him reporting the initial story in the first place (and this is a guy who makes a living turning mountains into mole-hills, mind you). Sure, it's Ryan Clark, but I'm guessing he's no less credible than the unidentified internetter who started this completely unsubstantiated claim to begin with.

As far as this feud making a great storyline, I don't really see it happening. I don't think people are quite invested in Ryback yet, and I don't see the current state of Brock Lesnar being the guy to make it happen. I imagine it would culminate in something along the lines of Lesnar/Goldberg, only difference being that people actually wanted to see Lesnar/Goldberg.

I don't see a feud between the two working. Lesnar faced Cena a few months back and now he is set to face Triple H, so it wouldn't really make sense for him to face Ryback. I have a feeling people would not see this as a step up for Ryback, but a major step down for Lesnar.

First off, I enjoyed Summerslam but there was no shocking moment to end the show. Last year ADR cashed in his Mitb contract and Nash returned to leave us excited for Raw. This year Triple H broke his arm.

What should of happened in my opinion is.... After the match Lesnar would continue to attack HHH, putting him in the Kimura and refusing to release him. Wade Barrett could then returns a make the save. We'd then have UFC Fighter vs Bareknuckle Fighter which could end with Lesnar putting over Barrett.

K2Jelly
08-20-2012, 05:39 PM
Why should Lesnar degrade himself further by putting over Barrett? IMO, he got ruined when he clearly dominated Cena before their match and he got whooped and quit. He's got A LOT of building up to do to recover from that and besides, Barrett could be in a feud with Sheamus for the WHC instead. It'd be more gratifying for him in the long run.

Great post. Could not agree more andbe more disappointed about what's next now that SS is over. I have no interest in another Sheamus/ADR feud, nor do I am dying to see Cena and Punk in another angle. I was expecting new storylines with Orton coming back recently, Barrett returning soon and Ziggler cashing in the MITB briefcase.

Was reading an article earlier about "Stone Cold" Steve Austin possibly wrestling one last match at WrestleMania 30! Your thoughts and who would you like to see Austin face in his one final match should it happen of course. I would like to see Austin vs Punk that's the match I really would like to see. I also wouldn't mind seeing Austin vs Rock for one last time either...those two always put on classic matches.

To be honest I don't want to see Austin wrestle one more match. It's not going to be the same wrestler I seen back in the days. Both his knees are not 100% and never will be. It's like when MJ came back to basketball, it was not the same. Nothing against Austin, but I think he will be winded quick and won't be able to keep up.

Ty the voice of reason. Alot of ppl get too stuck on what they remember of the best memories they had and always want to relive them. It will not be the same Austin. Now for him to show up part of a storyline or be a ref or just a fast stunner and leave ya but a match? No i have seen Jordan come back and suck seen Farve come back to be good then suck more. I do not want Sone Cold to be added to that list. That goes for HBK too!

-
that match still makes no sense IMO.
1) It was already done with Rock.
2) It would NOT allow stone cold to be the superstar that made him famous, it would HAVE to be wattered down therefore losing all interest it might have once had.
3) their fighting styles are so different, and not in a "wow that would make a cool match" kind of way, more in a "That will never work right" kind of way. Orton, Punk, Ziggler or Taker. Stone Cold is best up against guys around his stature or way bigger I.E. Hbk, Rock, Taker, Kane, Angle. Cena is just an awkward in between, hes bigger but not huge.
4) That would be the third guy in a row to come out and beat the shit out of their "top draw" following Rock & Brock.
5) Stone Cold refused to- have his character lay down for Hogans so he damn sure won't for Cena's.

I just don't see it as interesting at all IMO.

Reks did not fit the Chippendale look on last week's Smackdown, because of his hair. I thought they should've done a gimmick more fitting of the hair because he shouldn't cut it due to its uniqueness. Imagine Dolph Ziggler in dreadlocks if you think the hair thing doesn't make sense.

My relevant opinion: I dont like it.
More to come I guess...

As Hobert said, from the new pictures, this looks to be the centre plate of the belt. 2 smaller pieces similar to this can also be seen in the new picture (assumed to be the side plates).

I don't think we should judge the belt until we see the finished product. I think it'll be better then the stupid thing they currently call the WWE championship, so I guess that's something.

If the rumor is true and the supposed leaked pics are accurate I think it's safe to say its a good thing the company is replacing the worn out spinner but wtf is that ugly belt design replacing it? Personally the winged belt is still the best IMO. Every other belt looked gaudy but the OCC guy is supposed to be crafting the new belt so expect something industrial looking.

I think half of my posts are either on threads about John Cena or the spinner belt. IMO I think the spinner belt is cool. It looked good on HHH ect. I think too many people have their head up the ass of the Attitude Era and the Eagle belt. The eagle belt is ugly as sin.

The spinner belt has 1 major problem...it's made only for John cena. It fits his character, he makes it work but other Wrestlers don't/cant. The cm punk character being just "the champ" doesn't make sense like cena does. It's like Austin's skull belt on ADR it doesn't make sense for his persona. In short keep the spinner for when cena regains the title but revert to another for everyone else.

It was made basically for John Cena.... other then when Edge won the belt and made it the Rated R WWE title or when Miz won and had the WWE symbol/logo turn upside down...

The belt served it purpose and need to go.... Kinda surprise the belt was kept around this long anyway....

Isn't there already a thread on this? I'm sure I commented on another thread of the same topic last night...

Anyway, from the pictures, it looks to have the makings of a title belt that will eventually look better then the one they currently have. But as Bodom says, I think we should wait until we have a better idea of what the finished product will look like, since the leaked pictures simply show only the main plate of the belt.

The current "Spinner" WWE Championship belt WAS, originally, made for John Cena. That Championship belt is a representation of the John Cena Era in WWE. The reason it was around so long is because the replica's of the "Spinner" Title belt was in high demand amongst fans, mainly kids. The new WWE Championship belt that is coming out is simply a new design as fans have demanded a new look to it. The reason it still looks slightly "flashy" is because is still represents the PG/John Cena Era in WWE, even though it is likely (in my opinion) it will debut around the waist of CM Punk (who has also stated that he hates the new look of it).

You don't know shit. You know what the rest of us know. I see some sort of cd case beside the gold side plate. and that these pics indicate a pos looking title. The winged eagle wasn't just brought in because of that. The eagle is the strong noble animal which reps the USA. It's a perfect fit for a title today.

1st watch your language.... 2nd that a side plate.....
Lastly the wing Eagle was pretty much made for the Hogan era of the late 80s and 90s... If you remember they had 3 or 4 different belts for Hogan before they went to the Wing Eagle in 1987-1988....
If the wing Eagle belt would work today I don't know the times has change.... The Eagle is strong animal but the WWE is a global company....

That's a good point, why would Orange County Choppers make a belt? They are good at fabricating metal into basic designs, but nothing of great detail.

I think you're right. I think this is a piece made for a WWE themed chopper. Possibly for John Cena with Spinner WWE rims (I'm being completely serious).

I know that neither of the pictures that were leaked are a finished product, but they seem WAY to basic in design to be the belt. They seem overly thick for someone to wear/carry, but would fit perfectly on a motorcycle emblem.

I’m told Vince McMahon recently gave a directive to make sure Christian is not prominently featured on WWEtelevision until after the company has fulfilled their commitment to TNA Wrestling.

For those asking what commitment, WWE still owes TNA one more appearance by one of their contracted talents as exchange for their usage of Ric Flair over WrestleMania XXVIII weekend earlier this year, and that talent is Christian. Christian is set to appear at TNA’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view in October and is expected to be advertised by the company.

Vince wants Christian to “be cold” when he appears for TNA which is why he’s been tossed to the back-burner after a TV loss to Antonio Cesaro. While I wasn’t told this, I can only assume this has to do with TNA’s ongoing litigation against WWE.
what do you guys think?

"until after" sounds good. It sounds like he will resume getting pushed after his BFG appearance. It's not a stupid idea though imo. TNA chose to sue WWE, even though they've allowed one of their talents to appear TWICE on TNA programming just so they could induct flair (with the horsemen) into the hall of fame.
Flair wasn't even on a major WWE show, but TNA gets one of their top talents returning TWICE, on two PPVs. With TNA deciding to sue, why should WWE let christian go into the BFG with momentum behind him in WWE, which could make WWE viewers tune in to see him in TNA briefly. They should let him "cool" before he goes there now. WWE and TNA are technically competition (they are both wrestling companies whether WWE accepts it or not) and with them currently embroiled in a law suit, WWE shouldn't have to do them any favours. That is life.

The wording makes me think he's going to get a push after this appearence, so all is fine.

This is if any of that is true. Forums aren't a good source though.

09-02-2012, 12:47 PM
If this is true, its a pretty good business move, but it is an incredible dick move at the same time, Christian doesn't have that much time left on him so to hold him back is bad for Christian and TNA.

But maybe I'm reading too much into this but it seems like Vince sees TNA as a bit of a threat if he is trying to sabotage them like this.

One of TNA's people went over to WWE and had a bunch of secrets like what TNA contracts looked like which is illegal because another company knowing your secrets makes it easier to take business away from them. If WWE knows exactly what TNA wrestlers are getting in their contracts they can offer just a bit higher to make it more likely that person will sign with them instead. WWE claims that they knew this guy had them but they immediately reported it and destroyed the information.

Arianne Andrew, who appears as Cameron for WWE (http://www.ewrestlingnews.com/news?Item%5Btags%5D=WWE), one of Brodus Clay (http://www.ewrestlingnews.com/news?Item%5Btags%5D=Brodus%20Clay)’s "Funkadactyls," has been suspended by the sports-entertainment organization for fifteen days, according to two WWE (http://www.ewrestlingnews.com/news?Item%5Btags%5D=WWE) sources. Her suspension expires on Sept. 14.

Andrew was arrested and charged with driving under the influence on Aug. 24 in N. Hillsborough County, Florida. According to the police report, the WWE (http://www.ewrestlingnews.com/news?Item%5Btags%5D=WWE) Diva blew a 0.20, more than twice the legal limit in Florida. She compounded the matter by attempting to bribe the arresting officer with $10,000 to "let her go because she would lose her job." She also did not notify WWE (http://www.ewrestlingnews.com/news?Item%5Btags%5D=WWE) officials of her run-in with the law prior to the news story surfacing online. A company spokesman told TMZ.com, "Ariane [Cameron] did not alert us to this matter, we are investigating and will take appropriate action."

Andrew flew with the Raw roster to Australia last week for their live event tour of the country. After appearing at Thursday's show in Brisbane, she did not appear at Friday's event in Sydney, when her suspension went into effect, nor Saturday's show in Melbourne.

I got the impression it was real too. I think The Miz threw her off what she was prepared to talk about and they carried on from there. I doubt there's any real heat between them though, why would there be? On the whole I think Miz did a good job on commentary, not great and I wouldn't want him there all the time, and made a change to Cole and King. It also made me laugh that they were bickering so much that Cole was the one to talk about a Diva's match!

Glad I wasn't the only one that smiled because of this. Sometimes I like it when the guests are bickering with the commentators but it was during a Diva's match which made it worse sadly. It wasn't even involving Kaitlyn, well, mostly. I blame management!

I'm loving this. They have easily become th most entertaining entitis on the program. I think they'd be a very aggressive and dominant tag team and I hope they will win the gold. 2 former world champions would bring some prestige back to the tag titles and definitely make ten more relevant than Kofi and Truth.

Yeah. I could see Kaitlyn jumping into Eve's current role. Eve will, like you said, be flung into that match-up eventually. The match needs a heel so if it is not Eve then I would expect Kaitlyn or Layla to turn in order to sell the match formula.

Actually Layla showed a little bit of edginess. I could see something big happening since Eve is pulling the old smiley face trick on Kaitlyn -- I still haven't forgotten about that being what Eve did to Kelly Kelly before turning on her(unless I am thinking of something COMPLETELY different).

Lucas Chapel

I thought the Miz - Layla bicker was the most realistic promo I've ever seen in pro wrestling in years.
Now, any English viewers can instantly pick up on Layla's tone of voice and the way she was speaking. She was extremely realistic and very convincing, GREAT acting skills all round from Layla, she genuinely sounded EXACTLY how English women sound when they're in an arugument. In the world of pro wrestling I've never felt like the promos between two characters have been "real". Everything's always been either cartoony, over the top or overly dramatic. The Miz-Layla section of RAW this week was so realistic; it was like actually like listening to two people argue for real.
Incredible acting?
Or real life enemies?

If he gets better in general I think he could be good at it.

one thing that really hit me was how much he threw back to old heel commentators. he really had a heel persona going and a shtick despite his slight inability. I'd say put him back there when they get a chance to because I think he has some potential.

If we can believe Ryan Clark, the match that put Kaitlyn as a number 1 contender, was botched by Eve. Eve was supposed to stay on the ring Apron and Kaitlyn was supposed to go over. I went back and watched, and that was botched both ways. Kaitlyn botched both attempts at a clothesline. Also Eve botched staying on the apron. (Only if that is to be believed.) In either case the botch by Eve was a direct result of Kaitlyn sucking it up. Still all this leads to the possibility that Eve is going to replace Kaitlyn at Night of Champions.

If that ends up being the case, they do need to have Miz be an annoyance to Layla about Eve again. He helped that little segment.

I also doubt the whole thing was scripted. It might have had plots that had to be followed, but it seemed to be a "As long as you stay on line, Say what you want." It worked beautifully. This little bit of light, gives me some hope that maybe, just maybe we will get a better Women's Division on RAW.

I’m told Vince McMahon recently gave a directive to make sure Christian is not prominently featured on WWEtelevision until after the company has fulfilled their commitment to TNA Wrestling.

For those asking what commitment, WWE still owes TNA one more appearance by one of their contracted talents as exchange for their usage of Ric Flair over WrestleMania XXVIII weekend earlier this year, and that talent is Christian. Christian is set to appear at TNA’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view in October and is expected to be advertised by the company.

Vince wants Christian to “be cold” when he appears for TNA which is why he’s been tossed to the back-burner after a TV loss to Antonio Cesaro. While I wasn’t told this, I can only assume this has to do with TNA’s ongoing litigation against WWE.
what do you guys think?

Hi there, I wanted to submit a shoot interview my website (freakandnitro.com) did with former TNA and WWE star Sinn "Kizarny" Bodhi.


This 30+ minute interview went in many directions, with topics including
-Growing up, martial arts training and history working in carnivals
-His experiences going through the indies, differences between OVW, FCW and other independents.
-How he met Stacy Carter, Freakshow Wrestling, Sinn vs Stacy Animal Rescue
-His opinions on Hulk Hogan, Vince Russo, Vince McMahon, Scott D'Amore, Raven, Jake Roberts, Dixie Carter and more
-Road stories about himself and Jake Roberts, Kid Kash and more.
-His experience in the WWE, whether he'd do it again.


Also featuring Jake the Snake Roberts - who tried his very best to mess with the interview for laughs. If you'd like to see how Sinn and his mentor interact with each other - you can see their banter and jokes within.


You can see this interview at freakandnitro.com with the following link:
