Remember those days where multiple wrestlers would go after different WWE titles, rather than just one wrestler after the other?

That's why the WWE has become so stale, I don't need to see Punk vs. Cena, Sheamus vs. The Big Show, Kofi vs the Miz, etc, more than once.

i love aj. i think i might make a new sig of her /creepy

Prior to being relieved as RAW general Manager, AJ Lee spoke with Sam Roberts about her character, the recent storylines she’s been involved in and more:

Ignoring advice to learn how to act and be a character in WWE: “I was like, ‘I’m just going to wrestle and I don’t need to do anything else. And, I would hear so much advice that there’s so much more to this business than that. There are so many levels and ways for people to connect to you. And, I didn’t get it until I was thrust into this role (as Raw GM) and learned from everybody else that was in it. Now, I appreciate that part of it more than I ever did before. So, I miss the wrestling, but I know that there’s time for that.”

How she gets into her character as crazy, vengeful, and prone to breaking down into tears: “I don’t think I can cry on cue; I just feel what’s happening. It’s real when it’s happening and I’m there and I’m her and I just kind of react to it.”
Kissing wrestlers on TV: “I don’t know about (bad) breath, but I will say it’s very difficult to kiss someone when – there was this one match where Bryan and I had just wrestled. I don’t know if you’ve wrestled before, but you get severe cottonmouth. (laughs) It is not prime-time for macking. So, that one was a little odd.”

That's why the WWE has become so stale, I don't need to see Punk vs. Cena, Sheamus vs. The Big Show, Kofi vs the Miz, etc, more than once.

and this is kind of what i've always complained about. i mean, i didn't start watching wwe religiously until 1997; i was in grade 4. i would have my friends over every monday night to watch RAW is WAR and the PPVs when my parents would order them on the black boxes. remember those??

but i did watch back in 1996 when bret was the champ before he dropped the belt to shawn.

i just remember when shawn was champ back in '97 you had guys like vader, undertaker, austin, bret and to a lesser extent ken shamrock, after him for the title.

shawn's matches with undertaker is what made him so great. the psychology between the two. looking back at those matches now-- mainly their feud after summerslam, and those segments on RAW IS WAR (emphasis on the caps-- the importance) leading up to ground zero, you just wanted taker to kick the **** out of shawn michaels and your hatred for shawn would keep growing and growing up until he got just... messed up at badd blood. and the thing is, even after the hell in a cell, he never got stale. you just kept hating him and then at survivor series all hell just broke loose. i think around that time, wwe started to gain some ground over wcw in the monday night wars. the seeds were sewn. wwe just can't seem to create magic like that any more. i think the talent today could really benefit from having a guy like shawn teach them what it's all about to make an exciting match.

i listen to a LOT of interviews and podcasts on youtube (@TVTrax). for the most part they're actual news reports going on in the E and TNA with a couple dirtsheet reports, but i mainly watch/listen new uploads of solomonster, don tony and kevin castle show and whatever show konnan is featured on, MLW i think it is

if you want me to be honest, i still watch wwe nowadays because i still think that there is hope. back in 1994-1995 and 1996 people were going through the same thing. my dad stopped watching wwf after hogan left and started watching again in 1997 when i was watching and thought stone cold steve austin was the best thing on tv since sliced bread. thats how i feel about cm punk but he's so watered down right now, and it's just showing wwe just going through the motion, pumping out random and inconsistent shows then blaming the fans for the lack of viewership

Christ I completely forgot about that god awful orange incarnation of his shirt.

I still kind of like John Deere Cena though... by this I strictly mean colour scheme, nothing else.

theres just too much history with the old school RAW IS WAR i think if it weren't for austin getting the **** kicked out of him at mania 13 i would have tuned in to nitro and never turned back. hell, my MOM ordered royal rumble and we marked the **** out when austin 'won' then got pissed off at the whole fatal 4 way deal at in your house, but as soon as my mom was all "meh **** it, we'll order mania 13" because she was hoping undertaker would win the belt at the time. me and my dad were austin all the way. at that point we were behind him.

you know that stuff they say "dont try this at home or at school" i was giving random kids stunners at school and was actually hurting them as a result but i didn't care i was stone cold steve austin. i would even flip them off as the principal would run out then drag me to the office then call my parents

I believe it was just head shots with foreign objects i.e. chairshots to the head (fun to hear Triple H got fined at Wrestlemania for a chairshot).

Oh ok, that really limits the potential of how good a match can be (meaning a special stips match like a street fight or HIAC)

I can understand not doing them as much but they really should do some good spots once in awhile. Mick Foley is probably my all-time favorite wrestler so it's obvious that I more favor the chaotic out of control matches lol.

oh ok so those raw appearances counted towards his deal then? hmm. he didn't make that many appearances other than the 2 ppv's and a few RAW shows. i guess i can see them saving a couple for the rumble then the road to mania. but the only way SS will be any good now is if he makes an appearance to help team punk :|

Some sites are reporting they contemplated having Lesnar (or Mark Henry) appear. The original plan was to have Ryback win, then drop it later in the year during some kind of match where he doesn't actually get pinned or submitted. Thank god they scratched that.

that was my favourite cena shirt. i couldn't get one when i wanted too because the men's sizes are way too big for me. i can only fit in the lady's sizes but they were out at the time :|

I have the orange, purple, red, green, and black one (rise above hate) LOLLLLLLZZZZZZZZZZZ.

i'd love mark henry to come back. he's lost a lot of weight since the surgery. he has one of the best theme songs today. i'm not the biggest fan of cena but he has some awesome shirts. i actually really like the rise above hate message

Sports entertainment is in a down period right now, wrestling isn't however. The problem today is WWE let the rising stars from 2008 go, guys like Carlito, Morrison, Benjamin, MVP, Kennedy, Kendrick, Gallows, ect. You can't expect someone to be the next Kurt Angle and get huge pops in their second week of television. It's pretty sad when a company's best product is it's "E" show that has non-developed stars on a weekly basis. If you look at companies like TNA or ROH on the other hand, you see how they've booked the wrestlers well enough to have an enormous amount of talent going after titles. TNA has the best roster in wrestling bar none. Alex Shelley's return would put them way over the top even if the MCMG isn't reformed. I don't see Shelley joining the WWE because they would treat him the same way they treat Bourne, which is criminal to Shelley's talents. But whatever, you guys would rather only watch Monday Night Raw and continue to give the product viewers even if the product is really, really bad. Nothing's going to change from the WWE point of view as long as they are getting a consistent viewership. I'd rather support companies that give talented guys the ball and let them roll with it. I suggest you guys do it too. Your choice.

i wouldn't call wwe getting consistent viewership right now. they're hovering in the mid 2.0's right now when they were at 3.0-3.5 or so before the switch to 3 hour raw shows (wouldn't even factor in monday night football either). viewership is dropping, ppv buyrates are dropping. i think we're starting to see some promise in guys like ziggler, cesaro, and a few other guys. i really like justin gabriel for example. he just needs a personality and he'd be a beast

I was kind of hoping they would build up Big Show to be more and more unstoppable (kind of like how Ryberg is now), and then he stands in the middle of the ring and goes on about how no one wants to face him, calls every one out no one actually comes out, then later that night he interrupts a title match between Punk and someone else, and goes off about how he should have both titles, and then Mark Henry comes out and they go at it.

i agree.

all i know is i hope mark makes a full recovery and brings back the hall of pain. he has so much potential material to work with should he return. he could come back and be all "what the hell has happened here while i was gone" route and take out guys like kane saying he's all hugging guys now. you know stuff like that. then go on a war path for the world title. hell even have show booked as some unstoppable machine. make us believe that no one can stop him, even super sheamus. then mark henry comes out and there's a legit threat for show's title. have that title mean something

All that had to do with Brad Maddox was put him in a match against Santino Marella. He comes in with street clothes. Surprises the crowd that he can wrestle. Done.

Identifies himself as a wrestler. Demands a match against Ryback. $1 million contract. :rolleyes:

I wish they brought The Miz back into the forefront. He was probably one of the best heel champions during the PG era. CM Punk's tenure is getting old quick. Ziggler, wouldn't be a bad choice either.

Oh, and just get Sheamus to go heel...they should be using his brute force for beating the crap out of everyone. Not walking around the ring smiling and cracking terrible jokes.

Shane McMahon quit the WWE almost 3 years ago. I think the last time he appeared was 2009.

Scott Keith summed it up best last night in two different quotes.

Quote 1:

Brad Maddox is out to explain his actions, and it’s a pretty good explanation. He spent thousands of dollars getting a developmental deal, and he was told that he wasn’t good enough, so he became a referee instead, bided his time, and then turned on Ryback without Punk’s knowledge. So this brings out Vince McMahon for a surprise appearance, and he wonders why CM Punk isn’t defending the WWE title at Survivor Series. Vince bullies Vickie into making Punk v. Ryback v. Cena, and I guess plans change yet again. This company is mind-boggling. Not only for changing the main event around at the drop of a hat, but for making such a big deal out of every authority figure change and then just having Vince come out and do what he wants anyway. Just last week he was all depressed because he couldn’t do anything about Vickie as GM! And we just had Cena and Punk in a three-way match at Summerslam! And never mind that Foley was so incredibly angry with Punk last week that he had to set up a tag match to settle thing, and now they’re not even in the same match anymore. But hey, they’re telling stories.

Quote 2:

Just another parting shot at RAW this morning, and a good example of why no one gets invested in pushes anymore. Vince comes out to make a new WWE title match for the PPV, and Vickie suggests Dolph Ziggler, the guy who is the #1 contender for the World title and presumed next big project. Vince LAUGHS at her and threatens to fire her for even suggesting a ridiculous idea like Ziggler getting a title shot, because who would want to pay to see that? And then they'll wonder why he doesn't get over after he backdoors his way into the World title and loses every match by DQ.

I'm kind of glad they made that match, not having the WWE title be defended at SS would have been retarded

Anyways Ryback will probably destroy them both all match then hit shell-shocked on Cena, then Punk comes in and pulls him out of the ring and steals the victory or something like that, they'll find a way for Punk to weasle his way out of it again.
