Yeah well as a big wrestling fan who stopped watching regularly in 2010 who is starting to look into it again (as I said in a previous post).

All those guys seem to be plugs, even Sheamus seems to be to a certain extent, although I'm starting to be sold on him as main event-er.

I watch Wrestlemania 28 today on Youtube, and some of the matches were actually good, but the World Title match wasn't in my opinion. They just pushed that title aside like it was no big deal, I didn't follow the storylines heading into it but to me it would have been better if they could have factored the title into that Orton/Kane match, would have given the world title match more meaning.


I'm kinda disapointed with how WWE is now.



The talent in WWE today is incapable of carrying out and building a decent storyline, so the get rushed. People can blame the writers all they want, but it was the talent back in the day that made them memorable. I remember back in the day you couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next, even if the storyline was in a 6 month buildup.

WWE also seems to really have a hard on these days for letting a star build himself up into something and the burying them as some kind of control thing.

If TNA could get better storylines they would be much better, cause there talent is 100 times better.


With recent PPV buy-rates and attendance figures, I can't see how they can continue much longer.

does anyone else find that they don't care to watch anything else except segments that involve the main event guys? i'm talking about guys like cena, bryan, punk...

i have no interest in plugs like ziggler, rhodes, etc. they are all too generic and bring nothing to the table.


I'm the complete opposite. I usually flip the channel if I see Cena or Punk doing a segment, especially Cena.

Sick and tired of them pandering to the fans.

Yeah I know the storylines were really interesting, I remember when Rey and Chavo were in that fued I couldn't wait for the next thing to happen.

But your right, a classic case of this was with MVP, he would have been a maineventer right now, he seemed to be destined to be a maineventer, but they buried him.

He would be much better, and more respected as a maineventer by the fans then some of the guys they have in those spots now.

They also made a huge mistake letting Mr.Kennedy go, same thing as I just said for MVP but he was futhur along and seemed to be a sure thing.

With recent PPV buy-rates and attendance figures, I can't see how they can continue much longer.


Boy I hope not, the talent they have there is incredbile.

If they could come up with better storylines and stuff, then they will only get better, they are pretty far along as a company when you consider that they have only been around for 10 years and that WWE has like a 40 year headstart on them.

I'm more of a TNA fan than WWE fan now myself, hopefully they can continue on and get better.

They are legitimate main event guys in the WWE which is why the focus is on them.

Before it was Stone Cold and The Rock. Now it's Cena and Punk.

I hope that Nash rumor isn't just him being drunk and tweeting,

CM Punk as head of the new NWO turned heel would be amazing for the WWE. Kevin Nash as a manager and mouth piece, JBL as the financier (a la Million dollar man) , R truth done with the kiddy Jimmy thing and becomes a heel, Ryback is the beast, Big Show as himself, Miz , Eve as the female manager, Cody Rhodes, Dolph Ziggler and if they really want hype and people tuning in, do a hollywood hogan style turn for John Cena....

We can dream.

Anyone else tired of all of these cashing in money in the bank teases by Dolph Ziggler. Personally I find them annoying when they do them so often. Kay once and a while, completely fine with that, but every week, seriously?

It would have been stupid for him to do it there, although it is getting old.

On another note I like Santino, he's pretty funny, they should give him a bigger push storyline wise.

Damn that fatal 4 way was good but I was disapointed Rey didn't win.

He needs the title badly or to be in the main events and the contender

Oh ya, no kidding it would have been stupid there. However i could see Ziggler Cashing in Money in the Bank soon, because both punk and sheamus have had the titles for so long. Either Del Rio or Ziggler will be walking out of Summerslam with the World Heavyweight Championship

Yeah I'm still disapointed Rey didn't win, they should have him as the World Champ on Smackdown, or as the #1 contender, him and Sheamus could have a good fued (if they haven't already Im not sure)

What a bland statement that he always makes too, just awful and a disgrace to the Attitude Era charismatic pioneers like Stone Cold and The Rock.

Agreed, WWE Talent sucks now, I was watching some matches from "The good old days" and I really miss some of the wrestlers they had.

It sucks TNA is so far behind because if they could get there show together they would be much better, the talent TNA has would blow WWE out of the water (Maybe with a few expections here and there).

Sheamus' promos suck, they're the same every time.

I'm not really sure how he got such a big push so quickly when they have held guys like MVP and Kennedy down in the past before parting ways, those guys I could actually see as guys that mainevent every PPV, are always in the "world title match" and carry the title for long reigns.

I'm just not sold on Sheamus at all.

Yea, Sheamus fits in with the "kiddie brand" wwe.

Jinder.... how are they even going to put him over.. they should align him for the Euro belt.... do they still have that?

Sheamus is apparently a good friend of Triple H's, so there's a good chance that he was pushed because of that. Sheamus is pretty good in the ring, but his character sucks.

Jinder should team up with McIntyre or something, get involved with the tag division. He's okay in the ring.

"CM Punk can pick who he wants if not me I'm cool with that .just think the brand is so strong an he can continue it with his skill and edge"

"We can make this happen.Wear your NWO shirts ,bring NWO signs and chant NWO when our Champion comes out! The NWO must live on C.M Punk is it"

Bryan's a plug too, and so is Otung and whoever else these no name guys are, WWE is really rushing Talent now, half a year after there debut these guys are main eventing every show and are the world champions and crap.

If TNA could get better storylines they would be much better, cause there talent is 100 times better.

Yeah I remember when the tag team titles used to mean something...

As for Sheamus, my big problem with him (other than his character) is that he got a big push too quickly, I haven't really bought into him as a top star.

What? Bryan won the world title a year within his debut, Otung was an "NXT rookie" next thing you know he is in the mainevents.

WWE is rushing talent, TNA has much better talent, when you look at both roster's and compare them, there's not much of a comparison with a few expections.

WWE has a some guys but TNA has alot of guys and there good wrestlers, that if they were in WWE, based on how they are rushing talent, would be over and would be top guys.
