Once Sasha Banks turns heel, how long before she brings up ending Paige's in-ring career?
If they're smart, a few months. If they're the cowards I think they will be, never.
Do you think Aleister Black would be a success on the main roster?
For the second year in a row, I'm far more excited to see what Smackdown does at WrestleMania than RAW. At the same time, I think I only feel that way because RAW's side of the card was etched in stone almost a year ago whereas on Smackdown it's not really clear what they're gonna do yet.
Is that a good thing or a bad thing that they don't seem to prioritize long term booking on Smackdown?
The way they push people, not likely. They'll probably say he's too boring.
Good, as it leaves some doors open. THe problem comes down to the same thing I've said for about a year now: what's the point in getting interested in anything if the big match has already been set in stone? Why should I care about Lesnar's title defenses if there's no chance he's losing?
I'm 100% with you in that sense and have been saying the same. But I just can't help but think it's another clear example of them really not caring about what's going on over there. I can literally picture a meeting where they're running down the Mania card, someone brings up, "Hey what about Smackdown??" then they all just shrug their shoulders and leave.
I remember watching Smackdown's last year leading up to Mania and it seemed like they were booking week to week. They might have had destinations in mind but had no idea how they were going to get there. They made the WWE Championship picture so convoluted by adding Luke Harper/AJ Styles into the mix, only for it to lead to nowhere. And then you had Shane/AJ which felt like such a slow burn, too slow, until the final 2-3 weeks before the show. I think both of those programs suffered because of that.
That wouldn't stun me either but it's been the case with Smackdown for years now.
Logically, and without the advantage of hindsight, do you think that Kane should have gone over Taker at Mania 14?
Back then the Streak wasn't really a thing yet, and Kane had come in as the most dominant monster in a while. Plus, the feud continued past Mania and Taker ended up beating him again in the Inferno match, so wouldn't it have made more sense to have Kane win in order to better continue the feud? Of course, it's obviously a good thing that he didn't but I'm just thinking out loud here.
Is this Paige situation big enough to see Sasha Banks booed in a place like Philadelphia for the Royal Rumble? Considering the split within the community about Sasha's role in the whole thing. Best guess, is the response the usual for her, a mix with more cheers overall or a mix with more boos overall?
Yeah I'd have been ok with that. THe Streak had only been mentioned maybe once and with Kane winning the title in June, it probably does make sense.
She'll be fine. Philadelphia isn't likely to care all tha tmuch really.
Finlay worth inducting in the Hall of Fame? Serviceable, long career, and one of the people responsible for advancing women's wrestling into what it is today.
I wouldn't but it wouldn't surprise me if he got in. If he did it's nothing I'd get up in arms about.
Yeah, he's a guy that definitely meets the minimum standards for getting into WWE's Hall of Fame, but if you were to make a more exclusive Hall of Fame, he'd probably be a no from me. Same with people like Regal and Davey Boy for me.
Should Fit Finlay really be recognized as a great women's wrestling trainer? Didn't he train women during a terrible period (pun intended) of women's wrestling?
Yes he should be, as a lot of the women had no experience and he turned them into something. Trish and Lita were rather successful and he had a big hand with them.
I'm not sure about Lita but he does get credit for Trish.
I look at today's roster of women that are strictly WWE homegrown products and see so much more ability. Sure, the women of his era were chosen more for their looks and were not asked to do much but I think a better trainer could have gotten more out of them.
I'm pretty sure I've heard Trish say he worked with both of them.
They could have, but at the same time a lot of the women today have any kind of experience. When you have women like Kelly Kelly and Alicia Fox literally being hired out of lingerie catalogues, you're asking a lot.
How good was this promo by Cena: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLp34QhZkhg
Great, as it always is when Cena gets serious.
Wasn't the curb stomp banned because it was too dangerous?
I heard it was due to Vince not liking it. It would seem dangerous though.
Watching the 2000 Rumble and they haven't shut up about The Rock all night (as in the entire PPV). Without having seen any of the TV surrounding the event, if you just watch the show it's clearly all about The Rock and nobody else has a chance of winning this thing. Was it a different feeling leading up where multiple people had shots or was it like it is on the show itself, pretty clear cut that this is for da Rock?
Rock could have had all four limbs chopped off and still managed to win that thing.
