WWE TV 11/22 - 11/28 LeBron James is a King's Road Style wrestler

Recommended Posts

My guess is the Usos.

I love Riddle's steadfast refusal to take anything seriously. Good to see a WWF'er actually having fun.

Yeah, I thought I'd be a WWF/E lifer, but I've lost all hope for a better tomorrow. It's all so pointless and repetitive. And, of course, dumb - even by pro-wrestling "standards".

So far the highlight of the show has been a fan taking down Seth Rollins on live TV.

Find the egg, get a title shot might have broke the camel's back and be the jump the shark moment for WWE for me.

So embarrassing. 

They should have done this storyline for Easter. Oh well, they can recycle it in 5 months.

Somewhere Monty Brown is watching that and is like "damn, son"

Sign that guy to a contract. I’d watch him randomly light up Rollins every week.

I chuckled at the Brooklyn crowd being audibly impressed that MVP (who's from *Miami*) is reasonably fluent in Spanish.

So, like, you don't remember when a guy actually hatched out of an egg at Survivor Series?

In other words, this is nothing new, and it's been much worse.

As far as I know, WWE released a statement saying that he will be prosecuted and was arrested.

Not gonna lie, when it happened I thought it was Kevin Owens for a second until they cut away so fast.

Prosecute ? I say send that mofo to the Performance Center. He can already do a better spear than most. Plus that's a punition anyway.

I know it's fun to think Seth got lit up, but he actually sorta counters the spear into a front-facelock. Seth then reveals he does not possess a ground-game.

Rollins talking shit to the guy while he's being held down by four guys is pretty basic heel work but it does the job.

Jeebus, that dude came trucking like he was The Waterboy!

Though, as much as I dislike Rollins, it looked like he could have slipped that pretty easily if the dude hadn't grabbed two handfuls of hair.

I don't like Seth Rollins at all, but hopefully that dude who lit him up got the shit beaten out of him somewhere.... though it was impressive that he didn't seem to pull up on his tackle. 

I’m never a fan of handling situations like that. I can’t believe this guy got so much room to operate though. He had a 20-30 yard headwind to take down Rollins and I wouldn’t be surprised if Rollins got hurt.

I would argue that from top to bottom, WWE has never been worse. There might have been worse moments but overall? This is the worst WWE has ever been. It's just complete & total apathy from a roster that seemingly has been so demoralized they don't care anymore either. Nevermind the writing & booking, it's just awful television.

@Loss on Twitter generated quite a debate when he said he isn't sure whether the worst of present-day WWE isn't as bad as latter-day WCW (this emerged from Meltzer saying that the worst of modern WWE still doesn't touch the worst of latter-day WCW) and it is a very interesting debate to have. One had more illogical booking and less good in-ring stuff, the other has a more crushing sense of statism, the feeling of an unending treadmill, where nothing moves, it's an endless assembly line of content where there are no stakes, nothing matters, no consequences, no reward. Both treated their fans like crap. 

He also raised an interesting question about why McMahon winning the WWF title in 1999 (as a face too) isn't considered as bad as Russo and Arquette winning the WCW title.

Vince had been the N°1 heel in the company for a good year. He was an integral part of the promotion and a top 5 character still. Not a "worker", of course, but still a key character at this point. Arquette was an actor promoting a shitty movie. There's no comparison whatsoever.

That being said, I've told the story a countless times now, Vince winning the Rumble 1999 is what killed the WWF fan in me (which I had been since 1990). So....

Vince had more overall credibility than Russo or Arquette too. He'd been part of the on-screen product for over 20 years, people fully associated him with the promotion, so it didn't feel as fly-by-night as Russo. Plus Vince had worked matches at that point, which made him feel a bit more legit, and he was built like a tank. Russo and Arquette were just normal sized men, Vince looked more like he belonged, even if he wasn't a wrestler.
