Pro Wrestling - Stars, Feuds, Accidents, Bloopers, Hall of Fame

I was a bit concerned by how Ronda was acting during and after that promo and the Bayley match. She seemed rattled. Recovered at the end when she and Becky were face to face. But she seems legitimately pissed that the fans were booing the hell out of her. Hope she doesnt no sell during the Mania match which I think should go on last. Apparently the triple threat with Charlotte is still the plan. SD will be interesting.

If it does end up being a triple threat and Ronda does in fact try to no sell it I have no doubt in my mind that Charlotte and Becky will simply beat the living daylights out of her. I know Ronda was UFC champ and knows how to fight and pro wrestlers don't how to fight. But 2 people working in unison will more than likely beat up 1 person. And if somehow Ronda could still beat up the both of them for real it would at least save the product.

Ronda has always had 0 personality and I knew that the promo side of things would be the toughest part for her. And as has she did in her UFC career when things stopped going her way she bailed. But if the reports are true and she wants to settle down and start a family I giver her the benefit of the doubt because not everyone is made for that travel schedule.

My guess is the mania triple threat creates the opportunity for the Run in from Bazler, Duke and Shafir to set up the whole 4v4 match at Summer Slam and after that Ronda may step away.

It should be 1 on 1 final match at the end of a 3-4 hour Wrestlemania.. Becky standing tall. And yeah, I'll allow 4 hours.

Big Dave was all , ''it turned into a disaster for her. Ronda's awkward delivery of that awkward dictionary. She was falling out of love with wrestling right before our eyes. But then it went from terrible to fantastic, when Becky came out.''

Turn Ronda heel and be done with it. haha This has a little Roman Reigns fever. Becky is the clear favorite. No point trying to match that. More boos are coming. I think Ronda as heel would be riveting and something that might interest me. I've been hearing WWE are now open to more risks and trying other things because TV ratings still going down. Smakdown had a lower rating coming out of the Rumble. :/ So WWE being all open to doing stuff. Turning Ronda makes perfect sense. In my own dreamland.
 
Worlds collide was OK. Maybe eventually we will be able to see all the matches. Some of the results were a bit shocking but the right won the title shot. Rumors are he already cashed it in, or did he?

Halftime heat was about as good of 6 man tag as could happen. Kinda crazy the star power when Adam Cole is in the Kane memorial spot of being there to take the fall :) I kid Cole is great but Ciampa is life and Johnny cant take a fall after just winning US belt, sorry NA belt. Face team was always gonna win so Cole getting pinned it is. Unidisputed Era not starting off 2019 on the best of terms. I expect they will rebound rather quickly.

Ciampa is indeed life. NXT needs a Ciampa vs Riddle fued. Take my money!
 
I think I might be starting to get on the bandwagon. Time to follow. Been a while.. Tripper looking up and down while Riddle is being sworn in.Figuring out if he can be the guy. Yes, he definitely has something. A likeable guy.
Lol he came in with no shoes on, he's just so epic :D
Lived in a normal house until he just moved to Orlando, etc.... im in love lol
 
I still have my reservations about Riddle. He seems entirely capable in the ring and there is something different about him.

I don't think I like the whole bro thing, and I don't care he used to fight MMA.

They bring up MMA like that is supposed to immediately make these people bad MFers. If they were good at it they probably wouldn't have stopped. I know Riddle has a little different story than most but its getting old.
 
A lot of Hall of Fame rumors. Talking like the Rock is a lock to go in and also heard Bam Bam Bigelow and Hart foundation (Bret, Jim, Jimmy). Hart foundation is an odd one because then Bret and the mouth would be 2 time HoFers. Which means Flair would no longer be the only one. Which means nWo would soon follow and there would be 7 daul ring Hofers.
 
Started a new version of that game. My own take on AEW. Billionaire owner is my character, so I've made my own network and had hype on superbowl half time etc. Going all out. Roster is now at 50 so it is stacked. 2 weeks away from the first show.

Matches have been announced. AEW world title match will be Cody Rhodes vs Chris Jericho. Ospreay and Barrett in a battle of Britain. They will compete for the TV title.

The junior heavyweight is a four way ladder match. Pac, vs PJ Black vs Chuck Taylor vs Kushida

Fenix vs Pentagon Jr.

Hyped. :p

Big plans. AJ Styles contract is coming up soon and I'm trying to get CM Punk back. Want him to be the big surprise at the end of the first show.

Have my senate, they are like my 3 advisors, DDP, Eric Bishchoff and Velvet Sky.
On-screen gm is Mick Foley.
Edge will do interviews.

New company so doing things a bit differently. Men and women are integrated. Santana Garrett will be pushed to the moon. Brian Pillman Jr etc.

If he didnt seem like a bro i wouldnt like it..... but he's a total bro, id smoke with him :)
 
Never heard of the guy either so I had to look him up. If AEW's plan to compete with WWE is to sign a bunch of 5foot 9 170lb dudes the majority of the population has never heard of they have no chance. If they are trying to be a bigger version of RoH or Impact then they can probably do that. But I don't the Khans are spending their money to be a better RoH.

I did read they extended Orton a huge offer. They need a couple guys like that if for nothing else then the name recognition and get some causals to watch.


Good NXT match last night between Riddle and Gulak. Gulak really deserves more than to just lose to all the big name guys all the time though. I get losing to Riddle, he aint losing anytime soon. He might even the guy to dethrone Ciampa.
NXT also set up Gargano vs Velveteen to take place in a couple weeks. Match has already been taped and they did it in house in a way where nobody really knows who is the champ. So everyone still has to wait to see how they edit the TV show.
 
The Undertaker is human.

Quite right, quite right. Have to mention that game again. How Jericho is so vital to the cause. I've been able to get others in on that game but most of them have no popularity. Only just hit me that Will Ospreay has almost zero popularity in USA. Got a nice best of British storyline going with Barrett.

AJ and Punk are both coming in. Gonna give Omega the win over Punk. It was funny. Punk called Cody Rhodes out, Cody thought Punk would challenge him for his first match back. Instead, he is going after the Wrestling observer golden boy. Make it sort of like real competition. Play the defeat off like it was Punk's first match in over 5 years etc.Makes Omega into a legit superstar in one match. I know how to book. :p Edge and Christian as my backstage interviewers. I think that is cool. Not competing with WWE yet. That will take some time.

Now back to the real world.

AJ Styles or AJ Lee or both?

Osprey is fun but you are right now a huge name. Just like Pentagon and Fenix more Americans need to know about these guys.

Pentagon and Fenix have non- exculsive deals with AEW already. Might turn into exclusive once their Lucha contract expires.

Drew and Riddle..... so much talent
 
Chyna had tons of personal issues. But as an in ring performer she ones of the most memorable characters during that time.

I know she loved the business, and she probably loved Hunter a little too much.

Her prons are in my opinion the only thing keeping her out at this point, and they will probably continue to do so.
 
Omega to AEW confirmed.

And he is an executive Vice President. Does that mean if Orton comes over he negotiates VP status?

AEW is gonna have every chance to succeed I expect they will get decent ratings early on and sell out the arenas. But can they sell enough PPVs to generate enough income to truly compete with WWE long term or they will eventually peter out .

Curious if AEW stands alone, competes or cooperates with other promotions.

I wonder with so many VPs how they will, to use a term from WWE commentators, coexist? Also, I have my doubts about ratings. In the start its gonna be okay I guess but later they'll need to find a way to get the casuals to watch somehow which is a WWE problem as well. Wrestling just isnt popular nowadays. AEW will need to push the boundaries abit.

It looks as of right now everyone is exclusive to AEW expect Penta and Fenix. And I think that was drum up some latin buzz before the Lucha contracts expire. I see them being AEW guys after that.

Jericho obviously is the big name guy most people will know. After that Cody has some recognition. But just about everyone else is only known by wrestling heads. I know the names it even then I have only seen them wrestle a match or 2.

I think AEW will put on good shows, but it see it being more like NXT. And AEW doesn't have Ciampa so they will lose :)

Funny you mention NXT. NXT looks like a version of R0H, NJPW, AAA, CMLL because that is where these wrestlers left for the WWE. If you like NXT you will love this menagerie. Except you will not see it weekly. Maybe that is a good thing.
 
The split was epic. Yes, even I didn't buy that there would be a DX split at this point. But the split we got. Very good. She was right, we were bored of seeing Billy Gunn's ass. :p

 
Who are these people?o_O I'm meeting all sorts of new characters. Could only imagine Vince dealing with this.

So... Let me get this straight,. One of them is Havoc, the other is Havok? No, no , no. We can't have that. Our fans, our customers, they will not understand something so sophisticated. They're only children remember. hahahah Let's just rename the whole group Havoc Incorporated. Yes, I like that. Our sheep will gravitate towards that. Yes.
