    3. Another show is NOT I repeat NOT needed
    agreed, getting over only required swearing, every match had some gimmick or interference and the stories were way to ridiculous
    it was basically jerry springer

    however, the wwe has a LOT of guys, talented ones that aren't getting enough tv time, by logic a third brand could work to some dgree, the halfway point between the NXT and RAW/SMACKDOWN, help guys transition better, kinday like WWECW did

    Ya know I actually agree. Some of my favourite moments in wrestling would be considered extreme. Edge spearing Jeff as he was hanging from the belt springs to mind along with most of what Shane O Mac got up to. My point is that blading isn't extreme, chair shots to the head aren't necessary for extreme and when they're used in every match we become desensitised and expect more and more.
    Using extreme sparingly makes it all the more impactful but it isn't something I need to enjoy wrestling.


    Divas to believe in.

    The only way WWE will add yet another show...?

    If someone throws more money at them.

    RAW - 3 hours because USA WANTED it to be and is PAYING for the third hour.

    SD - Should have went live, but WWE doesn't care about promoting it anymore.

    NXT - HHH ran, pretty good, should be back on TV.

    SS - Hahahahha. SS.

    ME - Ion wanted a show and was going to pay for it. They got a pretty damn good show.

    However, I would like to see a Cruiserweight themed show.

    In any event;

    There is arguably too much wrestling on TV now, as it is:

    3 hours of RAW
    2 Hours of SD
    1 hour of Main event
    30 minutes of SMS
    2 hours of Impact
    1 hour of ROH
    1 hour of AAA
    Presumably
    1 hour of OVW

    For a total of:

    10:30, not counting my projected hour of OVW
    Kaige Chamberlain
    Ballad of an Asshole

    Former RTE Tag-Team Champion(w/ Xavier Hightower[1])
    Current EWNCW Tag-Team Champion (Solo; 3/30/14) [1]
    'Father' Black Angel:
    Preacher of the Voices

    Winner of BotN[Seraphim]



    I'm trying to be number one, why would I settle?

    WWE has enough trouble filling 3 hours of Raw and keeping SmackDown a good show to watch, not to mention they have NXT and there Saturday morning show. Even and a HUGE even if they added a third show there is no way they would make that "r16". Why would they build a new how to bring in the attitude era? They would just take there current shows and do that.

    If HHH has not learned what it really takes to run a company by now then giving him a show wouldn't hep any. Besides giving him a show is different then giving him a company to run. How would giving him a show help him learn what it takes to run a company? Vince would still make all final calls on the show, so it would make now difference.

    As a side note, who actually enjoys seeing people smash each other over the head with chairs or secretly take a razorblade and cut themselves to bleed? I'm 30, so I saw ECW and the attitude era. I've also suffered concussions and facial lacerations (potholes and bicycles don't mix) and I saw the fall out after the Benoit murders. I watch old wrestling now, or CZW, and cringe at what they do to each other. I've said before if I want to watch people mess themselves up for no reason there's Jackass and Dirty Sanchez, wrestling doesn't need extreme violence to be good (see Daniel Bryan vs Dolph Ziggler on Monday's Raw) nor does it need homophobia, racism or misogyny.
    WWE can remain PG and produce fantastic, enthralling TV (the summer of Punk, Wrestlemania 28) while showing some of the best pro wrestling in the world. When they don't, it's not because they're PG it's because their writers suck.

    (Sorry, I have a headache and I'm ranting, I know.)

    I agree with you.My point is not to remove extreme at all but keep it in high profile matches and main events




    What Arsenal fans think about RVP moving to UTD:
