Once again, one guy takes out Legacy by himself.

How is anybody supposed to believe they have any shot in the match when Shane's taken all 3 of them down by himself, when HHH's taken all 3 of them down by himself and now Batista's taken all 3 of them down by himself.

Worst timing possible, too, because Legacy was actually looking strong for 15 whole seconds before he came out.

Here's another wild guess:

Shawn Michaels replaces Shane next week, and Legacy's utterly destroyed at Backlash.

(Although if you did want to do some repair work on a heel stable, having them beat those 3 would be a good start).

Adam Pearce (now holding the book for ROH) is like an anti-McMahon. Since he took over the book from Gabe Sapolsky, he has come out from backstage to wrestle twice: 1) he got bloodied and the living shit kicked out of him in a 10 man cage match and 2) he got squashed by Bobby Dempsey, who is basically a fat dork that the crowds turned into a pseudo-star. And this is considering that Pearce is an actual wrestler, not a roided-up 90-year-old or a dork who watches MMA and prances around like a queer.

They are basically like the Chicago Cubs. If you keep watching it there is no reason for them to get better. The best eras in professional wrestling were when they were forced to be creative to gain viewers and survive.

The fans who continue to tune in every week to bitch about every aspect are just enabling them. You would be better served by getting your wrestling fix through indy feds and truely saying fuck off to the WWE.

Sure, but that's basically a typical WWE thing. He wasn't a good wrestler but the reality is, almost the entire WWE roster at that time wasn't. He had a unique look and gimmick and was majorly over and made money. I've seen some shoots with Warrior he's not nearly as out there as is implied, He always addresses things as "my character" "working on a language for my character"

I always wonder if it pains guys like H and Michaels that no matter how hard they try they will never draw like he did. Shawn Michaels era on top nearly bankrupted the company.

They were going to bury Hart too before he agreed to talk with Vince and go to Stamford to meet and discuss his history.

And I guarantee you that it chaps their asses. No matter how many illegitimate reigns he gets, Triple H is not, and never will be a major draw. However, someone for 411 did a good job tracking merch sales of his opponents. What he is good at is depressing the merch sales of the guy he is facing because of how he buries them in the feud.

H isn't a draw.
Cena is a draw. I will say that as much as I don't like the Cena character, I respect the fact that he busts his ass inside and outside of the ring, and he makes his opponents get a lot of offense in before he hits the five moves of doom. H has never, ever learned this story.

Maybe, but since he came back from his first major injury, he gave the rub to Batista, fucking JBL, Shawn Michaels, whoever got the clean pin on him in the EC match at NWO, Orton, HHH got his pin back, he's jobbed quite a bit for the top face in the company.

Meanwhile, look at Paul's record after he came off his two major injuries.

Since August '07, he has a clean pin loss to Jeff Hardy?, and I believe that is it.

You know, what, I'm just going to keep ranting on Triple H.

Why? Because fuck him, that's why.

This post is great though:

I will never warm to him, as he simply has held to may careers back when they were on the brink of stardom. RVD was n fire when he was jobbed out to Hunter, Kane had finally regained that spark when Hunter blocked from the main event. Now I know his fans may sneer at these two but people these were both insanely over when Hunter killed their pushes,. Now then lets begin this talk with Booker T.
The feud they had back in 2003 was a disgrace, Booker on fire at the top was made to look like ****, and the climax to their match at mania remains one of the most disgraceful finishes you will see for a long time. For those who don’t remember Hunter took nearly half a minute to pin Booker which killed Bookers momentum and took him years to regain.
Then we shall fast forward to Cena at Mania in 2006. Hunter the heel in there feud in the build up showed no interest in getting Cena cheers which was a total no no for a heel.Cena was made to look beneath him and even in the match Hunter done little to get the crowd behind Cena. The biggest disgrace to this was of course he had politicked his way into the match, Edge who was in the form of his life should have been in the match, at least he would have got the crowd like Cena which he proved he could do superbly later that year.
Now then lets analyse his return, first thing he killed Booker in a squash match at Summerslam which was to be synonymous with what was to come. The night he buried five guys for no reason including the tag champions made no sense storyline wise except to boost Hunters ego. Then he turned Carlito a decent upper card heel into a total jobber, in the space of a few weeks. The guy was one of the more promising heels in the roster, but Hunter killed his momentum and its he is only beginning to recover from this burial. He has admitted this himself in interviews. We look at the brutal 2008 title reign which was terrible, the crap matches with Khali, the fact that Cena and Edge for some unknown reason were jobbed out to him to sooth his massive ego. Then of course he destroyed Umanga over and over.
I should mention Orton his most disgraceful burial.....
2004, Orton has the title for a mere month before he has to job out to Hunter for months.
2006 Orton and Edge were buried by DX, at least HBK earned some redemption by putting Orton over clean in 2007
2007 Hunter was it again, he ruined the night when Orton regained the title by pinning him 30 minutes after he got it.
2008 Just when Orton’s run with her belt had taken off, Hunter buried him in three consecutive PPVS.

Since Backlash 2006, Hunter has not been pinned with a finisher in a PPV, he lost twice last year on TV which was a result of interference. it’s the manner of his victories as well which leave a sick taste in the mouth, Cena tries always to make his opponents look good while Hunter destroys them.

I'm just a very casual observer of wrestling these days, but Hamas has me wanting to see Hun-tor blow out his quad again.


A question for those of you way more up to speed on the WWE than I - Have they had a sizable drop in talent coming up through the ranks? It seems to me that since Austin and Rock have left, it's the same guys having the same feuds over and over, with the names changing back and forth from month to month. And as for the talent that seemed to be on the way up (the Carlito's and Shelton Benjamin's, for example), why were they undercarded?

During Randy Orton's media blitz of the U.K. last month, PowerSlam Magazine conducted an interview with him. During the interview, Orton's asked if he was happy that Triple H got drafted to SmackDown. Suffice it to say, Orton was. Orton also noted a comment Umaga told him backstage during the night of the draft regarding moving away from Triple H when he was drafted to SmackDown (but before he found out Triple H was moving to). And then you won't believe what Orton has to say on Triple H. Here are Orton's comments when asked by PowerSlam Magazine what he thought about HHH being drafted to SmackDown:

I was at the Draft (on June 23) after I got hurt. I was in the locker room watching the backstage monitor. I was hoping to get traded (from Raw to SmackDown). Actually, it's funny because Umaga just got traded to SmackDown. He was like, "Man, you know what? At least I haven't got to be around Triple H no more." So (Umaga) goes to SmackDown and I'm like, "Yeah ... F--k you!" The last Draft pick's Triple H and I'm like (punches the air), "Yes! Oh, my God! Yes, yes, yes!" I went right up to Umaga and I was, like, "You've got to deal with it now!" It was my favourite Draft pick, to be honest with you. And we got Rey Mysterio, we got Kane, Batista. I've got history with those guys.

Here's the problem: You don't have territories to build guys any more. There isn't any place for people to ply their craft. Furthermore, the territory system would teach guys to wrestle different styles, whether or not it was Strong Style (like the Harts) or the Southern style.

Imagine a pitcher who was able to learn 4 good pitches before being called up, and got to build up from 120 to 150 to 180 to then 200 innings. He'd be much better prepared than a guy who went straight from high school to high A, and then got called up in September and was thrust into a make-it-or-break-it role in the big leagues.

Of course, Vince destroyed the territories, so it's largely he who benefits and suffers from their decline (although not nearly as much suffering as we do).

When I was deepest into wrestling, I enjoyed it because I could read up on what was happening in the WWF, NWA, AWA, Mid-South, the Deep South, and keep up on all the favorites there. I enjoyed it when Flair would cross over and put his title on the line against the Von Erichs, or Steve Williams, or any number of "heroes" of that particular organization. And you're right - it worked in keeping styles and identities "fresh", without being totally buried or foreign to the fan. The competition for the talent between organizations was a plus, as well. Ricky Steamboat made his name in the WWF, but made himself and the NWA a mint when he came over and beat Flair for the title. It's that kind of crossover that I miss, I guess. Going back and forth between Smackdown and Raw really doesn't do much for me, personally. It's just not interesting, especially knowing that any of these guys could turn up on the other show any given night.

Basically, you're saying Vince's desire to be the King of Wrestling has soured the product, and I agree. Like I said, I just poke my head in from time to time, but all I see are the same guys doing the same shit. The best thing that could happen for the WWE is to have the territories come back, and let some up and comers find their niche so the WWE could have some newness to it.

Just imagine if every basketball team was filled with guys who were 6'6", weighed 210-215 pounds, and all had the exact same offensive game and defensive mindset.

Think about how boring that would be to watch. That's basically what the WWE is now. The only guys with even remotely innovative offense (Bourne, Morrison, RVD in his time) aren't and weren't given a chance to shine. There's no variety to the product. No tag division, no cruisers, no IC or midcard fueds of any interest.

The one guy at the top of the card who has a slightly different approach is Jeff Hardy, but he's basically only a spot monkey. He can't tell a story worth a damn.

Personally I think Triple H's greatest moment is his Wrestlemania match with Warrior.

Boris The Great
04-08-2009, 12:21 AM
The Ultimate Warrior didnt draw big money. I am sure he sold a lot of tshirts and all, but his run on top in 1990 was a disaster. House show business tanked. The company went running right back to Hogan after less than a year.

Shawn Michaels didnt draw well in his year in top in 1996 either, but WWF was taking it hard from WCW and the nWo for most of that year. Warrior had no such excuse for his run. Also consider that Warrior completely collapsed from strength of the Hogan era, while the title run for Shawn was precceded by a year of Nash, one of the worst drawing champions of all time, and a few months of Bret, who also wasnt a terribly strong draw on top (though better than everyone else mentioned).

Over the course of Shawns career, he has probably made WWE twenty times the money Warrior ever did. To say otherwise is completely insane.

04-08-2009, 12:26 AM

No offense to your opinion but there is not a more overrated wrestler in the history of wrestling when it comes to drawing and making money than Shawn Michaels. People like him because he can work matches. Shawn Michaels is the wrestler that was on top when they came very near going out of business...

It's of course cool to rip on Warrior but I will guarantee you this he has more name value appeal than pretty much 99% of wrestlers who have ever wrestled. And this idea that he was never a draw is pretty absurd, of course he tanked in comparison to Hogan in fucking 1990 most everyone would.

Its not an opinion, the amount of money people drew are verified facts. The Warrior drew little. So did Shawn, but he has made far more for WWE over his career than Warrior ever did. If nothing else, that should be common sense due to longevity.

And this idea that he was never a draw is pretty absurd, of course he tanked in comparison to Hogan in ****ing 1990 most everyone would.

He tanked in comparison to anyone. Randy Savage drew better as champ than Warrior did while Hogan was off making No Holes Barred and god knows what else.

Who pinned him with a finisher?

I only know this because I recently saw it, but Randy Orton RKOd him and pinned him in a tag match during the DX/Rated RKO feud. And I am just going off memory here, but didnt Edge spear him when he won the belt at Survivor Series?

Mecca

Different matches, one was a tag and one was the LMS. But that is the beauty of phrasing things so specifically, he wasnt *pinned* with a *finisher*. Doesnt mean he wasnt pinned. Doesnt mean he didnt lose because of a finisher. By that rule you could eliminate him tapping out to Cena at WM.

But phrasing it a certain way makes the argument look stronger than it is. Which is why such things are usually a waste of time.

No offense to anyone here personally, but as much as you found the funny quotes after Mania from HHH fans and all, its also funny seeing angry HHH haters dredging up the same old stuff time and again. Its like someone going around posting endlessly about what a lousy draft pick Ryan Sims was. We know, but come on already.

I was reading back to old posts about this, and someone said it really well about how its like some people are endlessly trying to prove a point about HHH that doesnt need to be proved to anyone. And when they do it, they usually rely on the same he hasnt been *pinned* with a *finisher* type stuff to boost their case, when the case doesnt need boosting.

Its like the LAPD planting evidence on OJ when he did it anyway. The overall case is right, but the questionable method its presented in just makes it easier for people to dismiss it. People still raging against HHH after all this time are just turning people off to it.

Boris The Great
04-08-2009, 01:52 AM
Also, if you want to talk about draws, you have to give HHH his due. He is one of the top in WWE history. He certainly hasnt been a draw in recent years to any noticable degree, but the peak financial years in WWE (2000-2001) came with HHH as the top heel.

People say, well business was hot because of Austin, but he was out that whole time with neck surgery. Then people say well it was Rock, and thats no doubt true to an extent, but it was when HHH and Stephanie took over as the evil couple that business really started to grow beyond the 98-99 Austin level. There was a period of 2-3 months after Austin left to have his surgery where there was concern about business cooling off. Then the McMahon-Helmsley got hot and business actually ended up improving from where it had been. So he definitely deserves his share of the credit.

No doubt his longevity helps his overall standing in a historical context, but I think Dave Meltzer has said that if HHH had retired in 2003 he would probably still be among the top 10 biggest draws WWE has had. So the idea that he hasnt been a draw is pretty untrue, at least in the big picture.

You can go onto wrestling forums and atleast half of the forum will defend him and go "you're just an H hater" etc.

And he should be raged against right now, he just beat the companies hottest young heel at the biggest show of the year when he didn't need to do that. Not to mention he has now killed 2 Mania crowds in mainevent matches...if he was anyone else he'd never get another one.

Two, like I said, the people still raging on and on about it turn people off.

And then three, a lot of the times people stretch the truth and halfass their arguments, when you could make plenty of valid cases about HHH without having to embellish it. And some people argue those points, like I did with that bit about how he hasnt been pinned. Its not true and I said so. That doesnt mean HHH is my favorite wrestler, but there is no sense arguing mistruths.

Not to mention he has now killed 2 Mania crowds in mainevent matches...if he was anyone else hed never get another one.

Its not an argument, these are business facts. WWE business was doing well from the Austin era, but began an upswing in early 2000 when the HHH-Stephanie marriage angle got hot. Austin was gone and Rock was already hot all through 1999, its not like something happened to make him even bigger.

Obviously HHH isnt in the league of Austin or Rock as a star, but to say he was never a draw just isnt true. And the real declining started when the WCW invasion failed, thats when business trends started to noticeably go south. Then the brand split weakened things because shows were only featuring half the talent. Rock and Austin were still regulars at that point, but obviously when they left it didnt help.

Lets not mention that when he was first put into the mainevent scene with his first title win the crowd shit on it and him basically saying we dont want this guy.

Yeah, and they kept at it and he ended up becoming a big star. The same thing happened to Rock when they first pushed him. Everyone hated him.

Hogan made all of his opponents look strong. Whether it was Bundy crushing his ribs, Savage whipping his ass in the "medical room" at SNME, or Orndorff, Andre, or Slaughter, every Hogan opponent was made out to be ridiculously strong up until Hogan got the blowfish cheeks going.

Who looks strong against Triple H? Jeff Hardy when he pins him with a rollup that Triple H then laughs about? Randy Orton, whose faction can barely take him 3-1 and then gets punted, sledged, and pedigreed? Edge?

That's just ridiculous

Rock's first push was awful and the fans crapped on him as a result.

After that, the Rock got over all by his goddamned self. He got himself over when he was in the Nation with maybe the greatest mic work in the history of the business.

Go look up his promo from the Monday before Summer Slam of '98 when he rips on Chyna, or when he gave gifts to the Nation.

However, Rocky's time as a full time wrestler ended the Monday after WM 17, after that, he never really worked a full schedule again, even though he came back later that summer.

And as far as being a draw, everyone in the fucking world was watching in 1999 and 2000, and the belt was flying back and forth. By the time Rock and Austin were on their way out, and HHH was the undisputed top guy, it was after WM 18, and shortly after that, and the horribly botched Invasion Angle (thanks Vince's Ego), business went in the shitter.

If HHH really was a draw, he would have gotten Raw 5's and 6's and not 3's once the business cooled off.

Brock Lesnar was given the biggest God push since Hogan, that's true.

Khali and Kozlov can't work and can't talk. Orton, Jericho, and Edge are three of the best guys in the company. There is an ocean of difference there.

And Edge is booked like a pussy. When was the last time he had a clean defense of his title on a PPV? The dude has won 8 titles, every time through nefarious means, and never just goes over anyone clean.

Orton was just bitched out hardcore over the course of two months. Yeah, he got to punt Vince and Shane (of course Shane gave him everything he could handle) and took out Stephanie, but every time he went up against H, he was either getting tossed out of windows or his faction was getting buried.

Thats just ridiculous

Rocks first push was awful and the fans crapped on him as a result.

After that, the Rock got over all by his goddamned self. He got himself over when he was in the Nation with maybe the greatest mic work in the history of the business.

Go look up his promo from the Monday before Summer Slam of 98 when he rips on Chyna

Which was well after his feud with Austin that I mentioned. I am talking about their IC title feud in 1997. Rock had been put in the Nation and was doing nothing. The Nation was doing Gang Warz with DOA and Los Boricuas. They couldnt have been less important.

Austin was feuding with Owen and the Hart Foundation, but they all left after Survivor Series and Austin needed a new opponent. He got Rocky. Almost to a man, the reaction at the time was like why is Rocky getting another chance? Austin was the hottest guy in the business and they were sticking him with this guy?

But in that feud he became The Rock and turned into a star. Sometimes guys get hot right away, some times it takes another try, and some guys never make it no matter how many times they get pushed (Billy Gunn leaps to mind).

Any guy in the company would have been over with what they gave to H, he wasn't given time to change his character....he was given Stephanie McMahon and a ton of camera time.

That just goes back to why Rock basically said he'd never come back to work Michaels, when Rock was given the IC title run early, HHH and Shawn thought Rock was taking his spot and flipped out and it involved Michaels telling Vince "this guy Rock, he's not shit, he'll never be shit, you should just fire him now" and apparently the Rock has never forgotten that.

I was reading back to old posts about this, and someone said it really well about how its like some people are endlessly trying to prove a point about HHH that doesnt need to be proved to anyone. And when they do it, they usually rely on the same he hasnt been *pinned* with a *finisher* type stuff to boost their case, when the case doesnt need boosting.

THAT WAS ME. Of course, I'm just the guy defending HHH, durr furr hurdy dur.

If you're going to say stuff, make it credible. Have some objectivity. Make it so a blind guy can't find his way through all the holes. That's my entire point and has always been my point, whether it's about HHH or anything. Why is that so hard? It's really not.

If one of youse saw some dubious exaggeration or whatever about a draft prospect, you'd be all over it like stink on a monkey. I see the same dubious exaggerations and such for YEARS and I finally get to where I'm like "yeah, well, that's not actually true" and suddenly I'm carrying Hunter's bags*.

This does not mean I care to see him on my TV, going over more talented younger superstars of wrestling. I hope we can put this issue to rest.

(*Which I would. 'Cause then I could probably carry Stephanie's bags. And then HIT ME VINCE

Its not an opinion, the amount of money people drew are verified facts. The Warrior drew little. So did Shawn, but he has made far more for WWE over his career than Warrior ever did. If nothing else, that should be common sense due to longevity.

Meltzer put out a list of WWE's all-time top money makers just a little while ago. HBK was on the bottom end of the top ten. I don't think Warrior was in the top 25.

Here's the problem: You don't have territories to build guys any more. There isn't any place for people to ply their craft. Furthermore, the territory system would teach guys to wrestle different styles, whether or not it was Strong Style (like the Harts) or the Southern style.

Imagine a pitcher who was able to learn 4 good pitches before being called up, and got to build up from 120 to 150 to 180 to then 200 innings. He'd be much better prepared than a guy who went straight from high school to high A, and then got called up in September and was thrust into a make-it-or-break-it role in the big leagues.

Of course, Vince destroyed the territories, so it's largely he who benefits and suffers from their decline (although not nearly as much suffering as we do).

I'd say now, if you were to see what the best comparison to the territories is, it would be the various Independent feds. ROH is obviously at the top, with a mix of different styles and sizes (pure wrestling, brawling, comedy stuff, etc.). PWG out in Cali is like a mini-ROH but focuses a little more on comedy and blood feuds. CZW out in Philly is like a wannabe hardcore ECW with a little pure wrestling thrown in. And there's Chikara, mainly focused on really goofy characters and high-flyers. There are many others (IWA-MS, NWA, etc.).

The problem is, the indies could be a great farm system for WWE and TNA, but the talent doesn't get used properly. Stars of the indies that go to TNA end up being being booked in a completely retarded fashion (mainly look at Samoa Joe's recent run). As for WWE, Vince does not like performers that he did not create, so he re-names these guys (CM Punk being an exception to the rule) and gives them characters they weren't used to portraying. And while many of the wrestlers in the indies are great overall performers (Danielson, Aries, Quackenbush, etc.), they aren't big lumbering jerkoffs, so Vince doesn't think they will draw.

Right at the very end, they have a preview of Joey Ryan coming into ROH. They are really starting to stockpile talent right now. In the past several months, they have added:

D Lo Brown
Eddie Kingston

Add in there that eventually Paul London most likely will come back. I imagine they will lose a few guys to WWE or TNA by summertime but they still have quite a roster even if they take some hits.

Where did you read that? I heard that because they wanted to cut things down this year, they had the HOFers work with the writers to hone their speeches. But its not like they just handed them scripts to read. And a few reports said Watts got cut off because he went way past the time limit, and they were actually flashing the :00 clock at him for several minutes.

Supposedly they realized that cutting everyones time was a lousy idea, so hopefully that is the end of that.

So, I watched the ME from 25 again, and it's even worse the second time through. I don't know who was responsible for booking the match's big spots, and I would assume that HHH was the one who called the match.

It was slow, plodding, and nonsensical.

There was no psychology, no pace, and it seemed like everything they did was at 1/4 speed. The bad thing is that the crowd wanted to pop for stuff (and they did for Orton's dropkick counter and his hangman DDT), but there just wasn't any story telling in the match at all.

It was like the complete opposite of a Bret Hart match. At no point did HHH look like he was in danger of losing, so the crowd never got up in arms for the possibility of a surprise. Even the moment of his greatest weakness (RKO #2) occurred after a ref bump, so as soon as that happened, any half-savvy fan knew that not only would Orton not pin him there, but that he was going to lose the match.

WWE rule #1 seems to be if you hit your finisher during a ref bump, you lose.

And after the match ended, I watched the crowd reaction (as I was too disgusted to do it the first time). It was even less impressive than I'd remembered. Most of the people turned and ran for the exits, and those who did stay mostly sat down. Some stood up, but there was hardly any applause.

Just an awful match for a PPV, let alone a WM Main Event.

Using a three-hour Raw as one giant rib on the developmental brand sounds like a pretty WWE thing to do.Yes. Yes it does.

I seriously think they'll go back like it was before where basically everyone is on Raw while Smackdown has 2 guys and ECW has no one.

Mysterio was a major suckfest on Raw anyway they used him even worse than the Smackdown bookers.

MVP on Raw could be fun.It's more likely that the US title becomes what the IC title is now, and MVP gets lost in the shuffle because they're terrified of pulling the trigger on the next generation.

That probably has something to do with that guy with the H's in his name that still thinks he is the fucking man.

It'll be stunning when he gets moved back to Raw I'm sure.

And Kendrick gets to do a job so Raw gets yet another pick...

This is looking pretty typical of the WWE drafts, Raw important other bands not.

And now they have Kane kill the big black guy, WTF?

I had a thought, and then lost it by the time I walked from the couch to the pc.

Oh, yeah. Means a lot to have Big Show back on Raw. It's been days and days since he was last on the show.

This would make so much more sense in the fall, when they haven't had all the main eventers on every program.

Anyone who's a maineventer...I think Cena has to go since they can't have both champs on 1 show but outside of that Smackdown is gonna have like nobody.

They always do that, it really makes no sense to me how they are the same company yet they treat the other shows like bastard children to Raw being the favorite son.

But I don't think WWE creative is that...creative.
