Yes, but that's not John's fault. He doesn't make the decisions on who he's gonna beat. He just does what he's told. If tomorrow they told him to lose to some random, he'd do it. He's that kind of guy.steophonic wrote:Cena has pretty much beaten the rest of the current roster blindfolded with one hand tied behind his back, which hasn't helped matters...
If TNA had a bigger crowd, everything would improve. I think Dixie is worried that by moving around the country a bit, she'll lose her core TNA fan base. But WCW Nitro started off in the same was as Impact did - it used to have a minimum number of fans [in the hundreds rather than the thousands] - within a year, it moved into small arenas and by 1997, it was packing 40,000+ into the Georgia Dome, JUST for a Nitro.Shorty wrote:TNA? TNA is frigging terrible lately. Last week's show was so half arsed, I almost fell asleep halfway through lol. In fact, I pretty much gave up right after the final tag team match. It's like they figured nobody cared about TNA that week cos of WM, so they phoned the show in. And they wasted half an hour on Hogan deciding whether to become the new GM, when everybody already knew he'd take the job.
Like Hogan, I love seeing Sting each week. He can still go with the best of them.Shorty wrote:And I like Sting, but I'm not sure if I want him back as a full time wrestler. He's 50, not some young guy. Hmm
Well maybe, hopefully Triple H is bringing about change!Shorty wrote:And Vince telling people not to say wrestling anymore is funny cos in the last couple of weeks both John and Punk have referred to themselves as wrestlers (Punk actually hates being called a 'superstar' and always calls himself a wrestler ). So hopefully we're steering away from this 'wrestling is a dirty word' thing.
And I also think WWE is going away from PG slightly, half the stuff that's gone on lately isn't PG whatsoever. Rock and John trading lines that aren't PG whatsoever, Punk dropped the F bomb the other week... lol.
That vid was magical!!04wayne wrote:Oh that wasn't ring announcers - that was Gerald Brisco and Pat Patterson! lmao. THIS match. Its OUTRAGEOUS what they do to Chyna in this match - you'd never see this in modern day WWE. Chyna was so "over" with the fans - they loved her! I love it when Sable comes down in the Chyna vs Brisco/Patterson match - Sable was another amazing diva!aaliyahman wrote:So glad to have someone who watched it parallell to myself! I knew btw that would be the Chyna video lol.
I remember one match where she was against two weak as hell ring announcers/managers. They even tried to throw flour in her face and she whooped both of them!
Such good memories watching it.Ah, yeah. I can still remember the night Kevin Nash first beat him and forced him to unmask - it was an amazing moment. Around 1998 IIRC, when Nash was still in the Wolfpac with Lex Luger, Sting etc.aaliyahman wrote:I even remember Rey Mysterio when he used to wear baggy jean shorts and no face mask in WCW. When he entered WWF with the mask, people were like 'wow I wonder what he looks like'. I was so smug that I knew!!I admire Cena and Orton, especially the latter; Orton is a third generation superstar and he had big boots to fill. He's become bigger than his father and grandfather ever were, combined. As for Cena, I admire his work ethic and I admire that he's a good wrestler inside of the ring - much better than he was at first. I can remember when he won the US title from Big Show at Wrestlemania some years back - awful match. But I knew Cena would go onto win the main title, and he did.aaliyahman wrote:Also I agree, people don't appreciate or even see a wrestler's rise through the ranks as it doesn't happen so much in such an epic way.
Although there is a lot of hate for Randy and John, those two, at least have had some kind of steady rise. I mean right about the time I stopped watching WWE, those two were doing things and now they still are.
Aaliyahman - have you ever seen the WWF Desire video? It actually makes me emotional to watch this now, a lot of stars in that video I grew up with, have no passed on, or we don't see anymore. Wrestling stopped being great, back in 2004/2005/2006.
The Brood! Although they feuded with Taker, not teamed up with him, cos Taker was in the Ministry of Darkness.aaliyahman wrote:What was Undertaker's crew called, when he had Edge and Christian and Gangrel as Disciples. That was so funny.
Well Undertaker brainwashed the Brood, and they eventually joined his Ministry of Darkness.Shorty wrote:The Brood!

Nah, he turned up in WWE on occasion Usually at the most inappropriate and inopportune timesaaliyahman wrote:Val Venis was funny. I remember the Godfather and the hoooooooooooooo train or was that WCW?
Hahah he ended up apologising cos people apparently can't take a joke04wayne wrote:CM Punk has been Tweeting support of gay marriage recently, and has ended up telling a fan to "kill himself"
...Why?! The Divas division is absolute crap lately. It's thin and they get no storyline development whatsoever. Layla vs Beth for the title at NWO tonight has no buildup and I almost forgot about it until Smackdown the other night Bring back Kharma is what I say!Dennis2910 wrote:god i seriously love the Divas and Knockouts division lately lol
