    WWE Saudimoney Bloodmania, Saudimania Bloodmoney

    While watching a bunch of late 80s/early 90s wcw lately I noticed that Heyman always played more to the cameras ringside than to the crowd. I'm sure a lot of the old school guys didn't like that but it was probably smart long term wise because he was familiarizing himself more with a wider audience

    They are teasing Brock is going to show up on SD to confront Reigns. Would not surprise me if they do a rematch on free tv
  3. The Undertaker is already in Saudi Arabia as he introduced Pitbull at his concert there yesterday. also talk that Charlotte could be added to the women's title match
  4. The twitter stuff last week about challenging/beating wwe and taking shots at the other company. just find it funny that Bischoff and Booker both blasted TK this week on their shows for doing that but silent about Roman
  5. Also find it kinda funny that some of the same people defending Roman last week for "working" in that interview are mad at Tony Khan doing essentially the same. Apparently only one side is allowed to be "working"
  6. Yeah I saw Heyman's comments. Sure seems like a double turn is coming. I guess that means the Rock match is def. not happening at Mania
  7. It looks like Undertaker will be making an appearance at the blood money show on Thursday

    Even when Roman finally beat Brock at Summerslam 2018 I don't think it meant as much as wwe thought it would

    Poor Luna. She was famously included as part of the roster for the original WWF RAW game for SNES. But by the time the game was released she was already gone from the company.

    Wwe has cancelled the December TLC ppv this year. Most likely because it's so close to the Jan. 1 "Day One" ppv

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    I was watching a WCCW reunion panel a few months back and One Man Gang said he wasn't sure if Kevin Von Erich knew wrestling was a work or not. He would just start tatering people and would often not cooperate

    There were times where they tried to make Angle a more serious character but inevitably they would go back to making him goofy. Even the feud with Brock in summer of 03 had a bunch of backstage comedy segments at least until Brock turned heel and aligned with Vince. i can remember Brian Gewirtz saying he (and Vince I guess) couldn't help themselves in booking him in comedy stuff

    AEW Dynamite - October 6, 2021

    Both Smackdown and Rampage were down quite a bit this week. MLB playoffs are kicking some ass

    AEW Dynamite - October 6, 2021

    Tuesday's Yankees/Red Sox one game playoff did the highest rating for an ESPN baseball game since 1998. Last night's Cardinals/Dodgers game also did a big number on TBS. AEW and WWE could be in trouble ratings wise for the rest of this month as baseball is all of a sudden red hot.

    Everything is going to be fine because wwe hired Ken Doane as a performance center coach

    Kevin Owens has now changed brands in every draft since the brand split returned in 2016.

    Roman had the sports hernia in Sept. 2014 and didn't return to late December that year. I assume he would have had Dolph's spot as the sole survivor at the Survivor Series that year. Post Shield break I think Ambrose was more over with the live crowds but Roman was way over as well before the hernia

    Also, today is the 2 year anniversary of WWE debuting on FOX. That show did over 4 million viewers

    Post Shield break up I think Ambrose was the most over for awhile at least. Listen to the reactions he's getting summer 2014. Roman also went down with the sports hernia around that time. also, like always, we wouldn't have had these conversations the last 7 years if wwe simply delayed Bryan's return in early 2015

    yeah Roman getting title shot after title shot after constantly whiffing made the backlash to him even worse

    And I kinda agree with El P that the McMahons are overrated to a degree. Maybe it's because I've never been so down on the product and I'm not looking at it clearly but I find most of their stuff generic heel tropes. They all had their moments (even Linda in 2001) but most of it does not hold up imo

    The more time goes by I think the 2013-2016 Authority run did so much long term damage to the product. I can remember it being a constant debate here with some saying it was no big deal but I really think that angle was incredibly damaging also I think Roman feuding with the League of Nations post Vince did damage as well. Everyone saw that group as cannon fodder that were there to simply make Roman look good

    As for Piper, I thought the build to Starrcade 96 was fine. Actively good at some points. Everything after is pretty terrible. I can remember the Piper/Flair feud in summer of 97 being really bad. Only to be topped by being even worse two years later in 99.
