WWE thread (Bryan era onwards)

By request I've closed the old thread in honour of the Ultimate Warrior - it was he, after all, who inspired that initial discussion and 10,000 subsequent posts on the subject of men doing battle in the squared circle.

So here we are: it's 2014, Daniel Bryan is the world champion, Undertaker's streak is over, WWE seems set for years with the likes of Reigns, Rollins, Wyatt, Ambrose and Paige, and you've a whole fresh canvas to rant about 'rassling on. Enjoy...

The old thread can be found here, for posterity purposes: To view the link you have to Register or Login

We'll, she wouldn't be the 'anti diva' if she was all tanned and orange like everyone else!

I was watching some old WWF on YouTube and came across some stuff from the Terri Invitational between E&C in their brood days and the hardy boys - classic stuff!

I was watching a few Jim Cornette shoots videos the other day. The guy is a massive prick. Literally any subject he was talking about he's have to turn it to have a dig at Shawn Michaels.

Two other points from my random old skool WWF night... Edge was a very good wrestler who I didn't appreciate when he was top dog but WWE just isn't the same. And Sunny... Wow she was hot in the 90s!

Bizarrely, I've quite enjoyed Impact the past few months - the storylines are far less convoluted, we haven't had a shock turn or reveal in months (Abyss coming through the ring at Lockdown aside), and they genuinely have some decent talent.

I think their biggest issue came when they decided to take Impact on the road, and they just didn't have a clue what venues to book. And this was at a time when the storylines were at a real low as well, so it wasn't inspiring people to go along and watch, and as a result, they were pulling in 3 - 400 paying customers in 10,000 seat venues.

Just look at how they do when they come over here - even without the star power, the last tour did well and had great crowds!

I just don't know what the future holds for them as a company - I don't see their way forward, as they've tried the big name stars in Hogan / Sting / Hardy, and it didn't work. The back to basics approach they have now is probably their only chance, but it all depends on the booking and their ability to make their own stars!

I actually like the gentleman in question, a solid hand, but it was all so rushed..

Wow, an odd choice. Kind of like when WWE said thank you to Christian.

But from the little I have seen of TNA at least it is not EC3 (worst wrestling name ever).
