Default Big Show is Broke / will the HBK 2009 storyline work this time?

According to Stephanie there is proof that Show is broke..... If you do look for it youll know the guy is worth 20 Million Dollars!.... I want to be that broke....

Anyways the point is..... Show is broke and the first thing that came to my mind is HBK/JBL storyline.... It was to me at least atrocious.... And it ended so suddenly because they knew it sucked...
Will Show make this story work or will they tie to..... ADR who will pay off Show??

Thoughts on this new Show is broke storyline?

They could just use the fact that Triple H will make his life a living hell. This crap was so unbelievable when they did with HBK and is still unbelievable now. Everyone knows WWE talents even NXT talents get paid handsomely. It's like parading Bill Gates around asking for sympathy and say he's broke, people are just going to go "what?"

The only way to use this storyline would be with people who are actually broke like Ric Flair or Hulk Hogan, anyone else it would just be an unbelievable bad storyline.

Judging by the sympathetic response Show was getting during the promo segment with Stephanie, it looks like it's working just fine to me. Trips, Stephanie & Orton are being such world class dick that it's generating support for any babyface they target. Since returning, Big Show has gotten the biggest babyface reaction he's gotten in a very long time, maybe even ever. Also, as someone pointed out, Big Show's actually a pretty good actor and he's especially good at selling sadness, frustration and grief.

Even though Show got some "you sold out" chants last night, not all the fans joined in because they bought the storyline. Show being broke after having lost his shirt due to bad investments is believable and is something that you've heard a lot about on the news over the past 4 or 5 years. It's a simple explanation as to why he simply hasn't walked away and his "iron clad contract" is only applicable if he "perform his duties" which, in this case, seems to be doing exactly what he's told by his bosses. While there are still some holes in it, as there usually are in wrestling storylines, it still makes him sympathetic.

Like JBL alluded to, you don't always have good choices in life. You have to look at the situation and ultimately do what you think is the lesser of two evils. On one hand, Show had to do the right thing for his family. Is the "right thing" necessarily the same as the moral thing? It all depends on your perspective. Show had to hurt someone he considers a friend, someone that he's been supportive of and that he wants to see succeed. Show also has a wife and three children, who are naturally the most important people in his life. He's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't, in a no win situation where he's forced to choose between his family and personal sense of morality by a group of people who derive pleasure from his aguish. In any film or television show, this would make any character sympathetic so I don't buy into whatever bullshit double standard could be and will be applied to this situation just because it's pro wrestling.

How dare you! In what universe is the Big Show a better actor than HBK? If anything, Show's facial reactions were awful and his fake crying was even worse! And at least Shawn had JBL hanging the being broke thing over HBK for the storyline to work. Who does Show have? Right, the rich snob with the awful rap music intro who adds NOTHING to the story. It is clear now why Stephanie is behind the scenes more than on the air because her acting is just as horrendous as Show's. So my answer to the OP's question is a resounding NO! It will not work because there isn't enough believability in the details to buy the overall story. Yeah, the McMahons are rich so what? How are we supposed to buy that Big Show lost all of his money on investments? Did he also take numerous trips to the gambling casinos too? Because he probably makes quite a lot of money a year for guaranteed amounts but we are just supposed to believe Stephanie when she says it is "public knowledge"? This is one of those instances where WWE outright makes something up outta thin air and expects everyone to buy it. Any smart fan will see through all of it and only the marks are fooled by this.

I love when the IWC jumps down the throat of every angle put on TV, and then say the SMART fans know better and only Marks enjoy it.
That is the dumbest thing I have heard in my life, IF you were a SMART fan you would know that storylines repeat itself, ( hell its 50+yrs of story telling)
There is no storyline that hasn't been done already.
This is also the first time they spoke of Big Show being broke, how about letting the story play out because its obviously working and the fans are invested in it.
Last week ya'll wanted answers about Big Shows iron clad contract, now you go it and still found something to complain about.
If you have complaints about the past 4 weeks then you were never truly a wrestling fan, just a geek behind the computer who thinks they know better than the world about wrestling.
You guys do know they are actors right?, you do know that they are running a storyline and none of it is reality right? Cause if not your NOT the SMART fan, your a damn fool

Yes storylines repeats itself but this storyline was just done 3 years ago and it was as bad and unbelievable back then as it is now.

WWE needs to stop insulting the intelligence of fans.

Atleast they should start being creative and think of some new storylines instead of just just rehashing the same storylines that were done just a few years ago.

The IWC Smarks have had their sh*t pushed in for the last 3 weeks, from Daniel Bryan going over clean at SS, to HHH going heel, to how over Daniel Bryan is, to the Iron Clad contract, to the Divas. Vince has really outdone himself in the ramp up into Football season, and the Smarks are SUPER p*ssed about it.

This storyline is great. It fixes the crap in the IWC smark argument about the Iron Clad contract. If finds a place for Show, and an eventual Daniel Bryan save. I'm just happy that the IWC got shown just how irrelevant, wrong, and oblivious they are, so now it's nothing but straw grasping.
