    Is WWE redeemable?

    I feel like WWE is basically trapped. They can't possibly put together a creatively fulfilling product while filling seven plus hours of programming a week. And they can't cut back on their quantity without tanking their business model. I don't think it improves when Vince departs. It becomes a corporate monolith whose top priority is to churn out content regardless of quality.
  3. It's a classic interview like Flair after Starrcade '84 or Lawler after Superclash III. It's also a complete heel promo.
  4. I went to a local Indy show a few nights ago. No alcohol but the crowd was engaged the whole evening. I think ticket prices are a factor as well as arena design. Modern arenas and stadiums keep fans at a greater distance than in the past. If you sit front row second level at the Wells Fargo Center you’re further away than when you sat in the same seat at the Spectrum.

    Categories would work better if you had a system like the Boxing HOF where at least one person was chosen from each category.

    I had a purchase of Craig Ferguson tickets pop up as TM *SCOTTY MCCREERY.
  7. The issue with a heel authority figure is that you have to have a reason he/she can't do whatever they want. A benevolent boss from above holding the sword of Damocles over their head if they stray too far out of line. Edit: I said boss, but it could be something like the Undertaker at Over the Edge '98. Something that provides boundaries to the character.

    NXT talk

    I feel people are burnt out on WWE programming. The last year and a half they've built to several supershows like Saudi, Australia and the usual PPVs, while presenting 5 hours of programming a week on cable tv. It's good for the short term, but overexposure can kill interest long term. Doing another two hour show each week feels like insanity.

    NXT talk

    I feel like of all the WWE shows, NXT UK may actually be the best at utilizing their female talent.

    I'm assuming King Kong Czaja doesn't count.

    RIP Harley Race

    An absolute legend. I’d be hard pressed to think of many others who could go on national tv and expose the business and get away with it. Race had so much respect that he didn’t need to answer to anyone.

    ECW on the Network

    Hardcore Heaven ‘94 still has the RFVideo.com bumper at the end The end of Funk/Cactus with fans burying the Public Enemy with chairs is every bit as batshit crazy in retrospect.
  14. How on earth does that rigging tip over so that the carts end up resting on it flat on their tops with the wheels up?
