Poor Drew McIntyre. A fantastic wrestler completely buried in a stupid gimmick. I liked Aksana too (is that strange?).

The WWE is cleaning house, the following have been released today:

Drew McIntyre
Jinder Mahal
Aksana
Curt Hawkins
Theodore Long
Camacho
Brodus Clay
Evan Bourne
Yoshi Tatsu

It's been a long time since they've done a bunch of releases like this. None of them we're doing anything, so at least they'll be able to go some place else and actually perform now. I'm guessing TNA picks up a few of them.

Well at least no more 3MB/Los Matadores feud. How are Hornswoggle and Health still employed??:confused:

Most shocking is Aksana cuz she was on TV and used pretty often. I dug her too :/

Everyone else was just being used a jobber or not being used. Bourne will prob return to the indys and Clay and Hawkins will be TNA title contenders by the end of the year. Everyone else will go to the indys or their home countries and wrassle.

Adam Rose and Bo Dallas just came up to the main roster. Give them at least 6 months or so to see if things work out before cutting them. Ricardo does Spanish announcing so he isn't taking up any screen time. R-Truth can still fill the role of the mid card veteran who puts the new guys over. I'm not sure why so many people have a problem with Santino? He's great at being the comic relief on the show and he's over with the fans. He's not doing any harm in the spot he's in.

The rest can go and should've been released a long time ago. How is JTG still employed? They have four shows a week and he's never on any of them. I think Vince or whoever is in charge of talent relations has just forgotten that JTG is still on the payroll. There's no other way to explain how this guy still has a job.

Probably because Vince is a racist. I've thought that for a long time and there is plenty of evidence through the years that he is when you look at how he's booked a lot of the black talent. Look how long it took Booker T to become world champ, that was fuckin rediculous. After that you have The Rock who's only half black and Mark Henry as former world champs, that it's. Pretty sad. I don't get why more has never been done with Kofi Kingston either. He usually gets a good crowd reaction, is pretty good in the ring and can cut a solid promo. If anyone remembers that feud he had with Orton a few years back, that tells you he can step up and be a legit player if given the chance.

Speaking of the way Vince treats black talent, why have they been feeding Rusev every black wrestler on the roster? I'm almost certain that Mark Henry is Rusev's next opponent. After that, Titus will be the only black man in WWE who hasn't jobbed to Rusev.

The rapper Wale even called WWE out on this on twitter and Lana responded to him in character saying Rusev destroys anyone who dares to challenge him.

So many of those listed could be better if it wasn't for being saddled with a terrible gimmick. But that's the WWE for you. It goes back to the 1980's, I'm sure Terry Taylor was a great wrestler. Or the Bushwackers, I heard they were brutally violent before the WWF machine got ahold of them.

According to the smackdown spoilers there will be a second ladder match at MITB for the world title contract. I guess that will open the show and the other one will end it.

I like Stardust, it actually gives Cody a character and him and Goldust don't look awkward together. They look like an actual tag team now.

Did anyone notice how RAW was really heavy on the in ring action? I wonder if Triple H's booking influence is taking over more now because anything that's good and wrestling oriented we know comes from him. Just look at how he runs NXT compared to how RAW and smackdown are booked. He's all about the wrestling and Vince is all about the entertainment.

I've been convinced for the last year or so that anything that's good is Triple H's idea and anything that's stupid is Vince's.

The dirtsheets are saying last night's Raw was different because they fired one of the head writers over the weekend and Vince actually had more input than usual on this one. They say the projectile vomit segment was Vince's idea.

I also dig the Stardust gimmick. I knew people on the internet who take shit too seriously would be complaining about it but I think it's amusing. Cody Rhodes wasn't going anywhere with his character anyway. I think the Stardust gimmick can get him more over than ever before.

No doubt the vomit segment was Vince's idea. I didn't actually mind it though because it served the purpose of getting Triple H and Stephanie out of the building which was Reigns goal in the first place.

Cody has pretty much followed the same career path his brother took. When Dustin debuted in WCW, he was a good wrestler but he wasn't anything else but Dusty's son until he became Goldust and his career took off. For the longest time, Cody has been nothing more than a good wrestler with a famous dad and brother who wrestle(d). Now he's got something, hopefully they'll go with it because I think these two can have some really fun interviews/backstage segments together. Anything that can lead to Goldust showing his personality more is a good thing.

2 stacked MiTB matches is worth it alone.

Rest of the card that hasnt been announced will look like this:
Goldust & Stardust vs RybAxel
Big E vs Rusev

Really hope the Wyatt family walks away with all the gold. I can see them getting the tag titles but Cena prob walks out champ and then we get Cena/Lesnar II at Summerslam.

Pretty sure Dean and Seth wont win the case cuz they are about to feud. My money is on BNB or Ziggler.

Seth Rollins is almost definitely winning the briefcase, Ambrose could win though I don't think it's likely, there's a very slight chance of BNB winning, everybody else is irrelevant and has no chance.

As far as the title match goes I think it could be either Cena or Kane. Cena if they're gonna have Lesnar in the title match at Summerslam and Kane if they plan on putting the title right back on Bryan.

That Ziggler promo would be great if it weren't for the fact that he's become a jobber. He's done promos like this on the app before and it's hard for me to take them seriously when I know he's just gonna go out there and lose all the time. I'm not that big of a fan but he does deserve better. At least make him a guy that the younger up and comers have to prove themselves against. Kind of like the role Kane has had most of his career.

If the rumors are true about Lesnar challenging for the title at Summerslam then Cena is definitely wining the belt on sunday. It's too bad because I really want to see the Wyatt family walk out with all the gold but Bray against Lesnar, while interesting, really doesn't make any sense. Cena/Lesnar for the title at the second biggest show of the year sells itself.

The reports are saying it's a possible separated shoulder. Hopefully he doesn't miss too much time, he's one of my favorite performers in the WWE and has been ever since the whole Nexus storyline. The WWE botched that angle as bad as anything they've ever botched before.

But the crowds today have nothing on those crowds. I can remember the last segment on EVERY Raw was insane. EVERY time Stone Cold came out it was insane. Those were good days.

Such a bummer that Cena is going to win :( It doesn't make sense, especially where he is right now.

Vickie posted a nice farewell letter online. Its a great read, kinda brings a tear to your eye. Really good they didn't make her be in character anything and they even printed her thanking Stephanie

It has been an amazing 9-year career at WWE. I started at WWE as Eddie's wife, and now I am leaving with my own identity. I loved performing in front of millions of people. Whether you hated or loved me, I appreciated every moment. I gained some amazing friendships that will always be kept in my heart. It is time to turn the page and start a new career in medical administration. I have so many other things to do in my life, and the most meaningful one is graduating from college in January. (Phil. 4:13 – "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.")

It is time to say "goodbye and thank you" to everyone from the WWE Universe, WWE Headquarters and everyone backstage.

My first "thank you" goes to my Lord Jesus Christ, for giving me a healthy mind and body to have been able to do the exciting things inside and out of the ring. He always kept me safe in my travels, and gave me the strength to improve myself emotionally and physically year after year.

To my beautiful daughters, Shaul and Sherilyn – Thank you for inspiring me to be better than yesterday. Your support was unconditional when I traveled. I still feel sad that I had to miss so many of your milestones. I love you girls with all of my heart.

Linda and Vince McMahon – I am grateful for the opportunities you gave me. Thank you for having my family feel accepted as a part of yours. I am thankful for the friendship we have built over the years. Vince, Eddie loved you like a dad! He had so much respect for you and it was always important to make you proud. Thank you for believing in me when I didn't!

Stephanie – You are the true example of an independent, strong and successful woman. It has been an honor to work next to you. Thank you for being a part of my last night at WWE. I was honored! I wish happiness and love for Paul, you and the girls.

To all the agents – Thank you for all of your help, advice and guiding me to have my segments successful… Arn, Fit, Dean, Road Dogg, Scott, Joey, Mike, Kidman, Jamie and Johnny."

I always liked Vickie. I always felt bad for her too. I don't think being a WWE performer is what she wanted to be doing. I think Eddie left her in less than stable financial condition and the WWE hired her to help her out.

She got serious heat the last time I saw WWE in late 2008.

Ezekiel Jackson also made his debut with Snitzky at the TNA taping's. It just looks like they were goons hired by Dixie to protect her. Perfect role for both of them actually. Neither one of them will draw but that's not what they were brought in for. TNA's roster has no depth right now and regardless of your opinion of either of the guys skills, they need people to fill the roster. Their tag division has nothing right now so at least there's a spot Zeke and Snitz can fill for a little while.

Ultimate Warrior DVD is on Netflix!!! Fuckin WWE and their editing sometimes, in a match vs Rude in '88 one of the tassels came off and he was choking Rude with it, but instead they give shots of the crowd. Obviously when I see footage of someone being choked I think "thank god for not showing it WWE, I was going to be pissed off about Benoit all over again." I'm almost positive they did it for another match when Warrior hit Heenan w/ the IC belt.

I love the documentary parts. I wish the doc was one part and then matches separate instead of all together. I loved the Warrior but I don't need to see him squash Barry Horowitz.

Don't everyone get pissed at Cena winning. The original plan was for Lesnar to face Bryan for the title at Summerslam. Cena is just filling in for Bryan the next two months. It looks like this will probably be a short reign for Cena, so i'm not too concerned about it. Their plans really got screwed up with Bryan's injury. Nobody should be surprised that Cena was their go to guy here.

adamclark52
06-29-2014, 08:39 PM
Yeah that really wasn't a very good pay per view.

The opening match was good enough when the Wyatts were in control. I don't really care for the Uso's.

The first divas match really wasn't too good. That Paige girl kinda sucks.

I've heard bad things about Adam Rose and I finally got to see it tonight. I hate Russell Brand, so a WWE copy is something to really despise. And I really hate what has become of Damien Sandow, especially when you consider how hot he was at last years Money in the Bank.

The ladder match for the briefcase was good. I didn't like the bullshit ending but everything leading up to it was good.

The Stardust angle seems pretty hot during his intros but the crowd died for that match. It really wasn't too good anyway.

the Rusev/Big E match was surprisingly good for two big men. That's not saying it was even a two-star match but considering "Big Man" matches are usually Mark Henry verses Big Show gassing in the ring this was a decent enough showing.

That second divas match was terrible. I'm going to come off as sexist but you can usually tell how bad a pay per view is when it has two divas matches. Fandangos "I like triangles" line was pretty funny but I don't know if I found it funny for the reasons the WWE was intending. I found it funny in a Ralph Wiggum random, surreal comment sort of way.

The main event was good. I think it could've gone another ten minutes at least. Eight men is too much for a ladder match though, and especially eight guys who are mostly mat wrestlers. Sheamus really carried the whole match. And I wish they didn't stitch Orton up so quickly...or at all. Blood makes a good match that much better. People hate Orton so much and while I do find his promos and character boring when he's in the ring the guy works his ass off. Del Rio may as well have not even been there and the same could be said for Wyatt and Cesaro. And the dark cloud of Cena hung over the whole match.

I can't see how giving him the title again benefits anyone. There are some guys who I've seen over the years who are bigger than the title and don't need it to be over. Stone Cold, Hogan, Undertaker, the Rock...and I put Cena in there. Not just because I'm tired of him as champion, he just doesn't need a title for the crowd to love him. And I can't see what they're building to. Is he going to beat Lesnar at Summerslam so they can tout him as the guy who beat the guy who broke the streak?

The dark cloud of Cena really ruined the whole show for me. It's shows like that and endings like that that remind me why I don't watch or care too much anymore.

I'll give it a 1.5 out of 5 because the two ladder matches were good, and the first match was solid. I'm not just crying because Cena won. I thought the undercard really did suck bad.

Did anyone else liken the thing the titles were hanging from to a clothes hanger?

Wow, no wonder you don't watch the product right now, nothing will make you happy it seems. The only bad match on the card was Layla and Summer Rae.

The tag title match was really good. I was hoping Harper and Rowan would win but I have no problem with the Usos keeping the giant pennies.

The divas title match was fine and they both did a good job and were given time to work an OK match. To say Paige sucks shows you've never once paid attention to her before, she is easily the best female wrestler on the roster.

The Rose/Sandow match turned out better than I thought because they actually had me thinking Sandow was gonna win when he got that near fall. The match should've been on RAW though and not put on the PPV with no build up.

The first ladder match was really good. I thought that Ambrose was gonna come back from the locker room and cost Rollins and get the case himself. I didn't mind the ending since it was just a classic screwjob finish that you've seen in every wrestling organization since the beginning of time. People need to get over that finish and stop bitching like they've never seen something like that in wrestling before. The MITB case holder usually gets jobbed out so i'm glad Rollins won since that means Ambrose, who's the most talented member of The Shield, won't be losing all time before his cash in.

GoldStar against Ryback and Axel was a decent match but could've been easily saved for RAW. Unfortunately, the crowd didn't react much to it since they were in a death spot on the card coming in after the MITB match.

Rusev and Big E was a very good match, much better than when they had Rusev squash him in 3 minutes at Payback. Both guys worked really well together and it was a solid match between to big, powerful guys. For the first time I actually saw something in Rusev. If he's able to put on a good match with Big E, he should be able to put on a good one with just about any of the major guys on the roster as long as the matches are given a decent amount of time.

Layla and Summer Rae was a complete waste and should've been saved for Superstars so people didn't have to watch it. Both are solid in the ring and if given more time they could've put something decent together. But nobody can put on a good match when you're only given 3 minutes to try and do something.

The main event was good but i've seen better ladder matches in the past. At least this was filled with a little drama since the title was on the line. I figured it was gonna be Cena who won since there are rumors Lesnar is challenging for the title at Summerslam. If that's the direction they're going then Cena winning makes the most sense. Cena against Lesnar for the title at Summerslam is a big money match. Nobody else in that match going up against Lesnar is gonna make money except Cena right now. Bryan getting injured really screwed things up so i'm not surprised they went back to Cena since he's been their go to guy for almost ten years.

Overall, I would give the show 3 out of five stars. There was some garbage on it but the main matches picked up the slack and made the show solid enough. If I paid $50 for this on PPV I would be pissed. But the show was certainly worth the $9.99 to watch on the network.

Interesting matches that are entertaining make me happy, and there were three out of eight on that card. not enough in my books. You're right, a lot of it was Raw quality.

I also like surprises. I like Seth Rollins but I expected him to win. Jack Swagger is nothing but him winning would have been totally from left field and I would have enjoyed that. The same in the main event. Cena winning was expected. Del Rio winning (even though I'm not a fan) would've made me mark out. But I still think Sheamus was the star of that match and should have won.

I also hate short title reigns. And rumors have Lesnar winning at Summerslam. I'd rather Cena hold the title for a year then win it three times in a year.

Ziggy and Roman Reigns should of won.

Ziggler is a great mid card guy but with only one world title he shouldn't be anywhere close to it unless it's filler title defense for the champion. The case would've been wasted on him. Rollins or Ambrose were really the only two choices to win that match.

Reigns is just simply not ready for the world title. He has to be able to put on good 20-30 minute main event matches as world champ and he's nowhere near that yet. Let him have a really good run with the IC title first and then maybe by next wrestlemania or the one after that, he'll be ready to be the top guy. With the exception of Brock Lesnar, putting the world title on somebody too fast tends to ruin them in the long run.

dcmetal108

Keep building up Reigns with moments like last night where he took out everyone fast with hard hits and he won't need a long match. Build him up as a monster and watch his destroy then have him feud with Lesner for the belt and have it be like a 30 minute no DQ match.

Really enjoyed the card last night, thought the results were safe but still good. The Wyatts as a tag team will eventually have the titles, but they need to build themselves up as a team a bit more before that happens. Neither Bray nor Reigns are ready for champion status yet, but both look great in these main event matches. Next 'Mania those two will be primed for a title spot.

Cena's safe with the title, he can feud with anyone in the company and give at least decent matches. Him vs. Lesnar will be a fun feud. Ultimately, it's killing time with good workers until Bryan comes back.

In the meantime, Reigns and Trips will probably feud, as well as Bray and someone else big, maybe Kane, to build more momentum.

For the most part I agree with Sanitarium's review of the show but I wouldn't even say the main event was pretty good, it was mediocre. Here's how I would rate the matches.

Tag titles 3.5/5 (I probably wouldn't be hesitant to say it was a 4 star match if the Wyatts won. I really thought the Wyatts would win and the Usos retaining left a bitter taste in my mouth)
Paige v. Naomi 3/5
Paul Revere v. Adam Rose 3/5
MITB ladder match 4/5
Goldust & Stardust v. Rybaxel 2.5/5 (best part of the match was Ryback's response to the Feed Me More chant)
Rusev v. Big E 3/5
Layla v. Summer Rea (wasn't paying attention)
Main event 2.5/5

So I watched MitB last night after not watching anything WWE since before Extreme Rules, and holy shit that was horrible. None of the matches were good in the least. The briefcase ladder match had its moments but it wasn't enough to save that match, and it's a shame since WWE has a history with very good ladder matches. WWE's wrestling is so watered down I was bored through the whole ppv. Seems like the last good WWE PPV was Summerslam last year.

It'd be Kane, Sheamus feud would be boring and Sheamus is a mid card star now and forever.

Kane is the bigger star right now, but Sheamus has some gold AND is due a bit of a boost for his character so a fued with Bray would be great. Bray is hot as hell right now and only getting bigger (he just feuded with the biggest star in the company) and Sheamus isn't going anywhere in terms of popularity. He's mid card now because the US and IC titles need more credibility and he's not even by proxy with the authority or any of their enemies, so he's perfect to have the title for a while. A feud with Bray, including other title defenses, would be great, and give Sheamus more mic-time (which he needs right now) and allows Bray to get some gold in the process. Bray with a belt is the next logical step, and then in a year or two's time sets him up perfectly for a proper heel title reign with lots of heat.

Haha no but she's champeen again.

Y2J returning is cool, and it completely buried Miz's return at the same time, works for me. But I see it as now jobbing to Bray Wyatt which I don't like. Yes I said jobbing, not "putting talent over". Wyatt is over already. Jericho jobbed to Fandango too to get him over and that's fallen into a pile of crap now.

I absolutely love Swagger's turn and the pop he got. He's a boring wrestler that can't speak on the mic, but if nothing else we have a little more variety to look forward to. Until he injures Rusev that is and then he can go back to working low-midcard matches again.

And can we all just agree that Dean Ambrose is gold on the mic and they better let him run with it wherever he wants to take it? Quick on his feet, witty, good varied lines and vocab not just the usual "tonight, I'm gonna pin my opponent one, two, three". Def old school vibe and I love it.

They want Bray to be the bad guy, but put him up against a guy that is supposed to be the face of WWE, yet everyone hates (Cena). So why not put him up against some body who the crowd actually enjoys and likes, being Y2J. Of course people will still be behind Bray, but at least hes against a true face, and not someone who people can't stand and will obviously cheer AGAINST.

I think Swagger made his big return and was really hot (in the Wrestling/Story way... not like.... yeah....) and it seemed he was going to go after the title, but then he got his drug charge and got pushed back to the black hole of the midcard.


I want to add, the Cesaro/Kofi match/beatdown from last night was AWESOME.

Damn, RAW was great!!!

It's as if they realized they need to put on a consistenley good show with surprises in order to keep people's attention. The rating's went up through the course of the show which usually doesn't happen. Hopefully, Vince is coming to the conclusion that if the weekly shows are exciting and have stuff happening, it might get people to want to watch the PPVs and order the network.

Ambrose once again shows his awesomeness. I love how he's gonna haunt Rollins and prevent any cash in he may try. Eventually, Ambrose will get taken out so Rollins can cash in but this story should be good for a couple months.

About goddamn time they turned Swagger face. I always thought he would make a good face if they played up the patriotic side of his character and look at that, it worked in one segment.

The Miz's new character is a joke because he's not really a movie star and people will never buy him as that. That character worked for The Rock back in 2002/2003 because he actually had become a movie star. This character will flop just like everything else The Miz has done since has was WWE champ.

As always is was great to see out lord and savior Chris Jericho return. The arena exploded for him. You don't hear pops like that too often in wrestling anymore. Him feuding with Bray should be pretty good just for the promos alone.

It was nice to see AJ come back and pull the same thing on Paige in order to get a title match. It seems as if were headed towards a double turn here. Which is fine since AJ did all she could as a heel and Paige wasn't over as a face even though that wasn't her fault. I think Paige has more heel mannerisms in her ring work anyways.

I don't expect a show like this every monday but it was nice to once again see the "anything can happen in the WWE" go down for one night.

I actually thought he was great. But one thing I think the WWE did inadvertantely was bury it's own product. They had the Miz come out and play this total douchebag, dillusional "I'm a STAR", ("no, you're not") character and in doing so I think they buried the next Marine movie. Because if the "star" of the movie is playing this character of a "star, who isn't a star but is a joke and a failure" that basically is saying that their movie isn't any good. They're saying the star of their movie is a loser, so what does that say about their movie? Not that i care, I haven't seen the first Marine.

Also, it just dawned on me that next month will mark FIFTEEN YEARS SINCE CHRIS JERICHO CAME TO THE WWE! Holy cow.

Her sentence was one day of community service, so the whole thing was taken care of quickly and doesn't seem to be that big of a deal.

Doing the free preview right now doesn't make any sense. There's nothing special happening this week. They should make Summerslam a kick ass show and stack the programming for that whole week and try to hook people into buying the network that way.

Sting has never been a playable character in any WWE game ever, so it makes perfect sense to announce him being in the game. Especially, if he's an exclusive pre-order character like the Warrior was last year. It will help with advanced game sales. I went to WWE.com to see where Raw would be at next week and there's no way Sting shows up randomly on a Raw from Richmond, VA with no hype. The WWE doesn't make sense a lot of the time but even Vince knows you can't debut Sting without any hype. At least it appears he's singed a legends deal with the WWE.

I agree with you about the Montreal screwjob. What else was Vince supposed to do? I've always taken McMahon's side on that because there was no other choice for him to make. Vince Russo was on Austin's podcast recently and he said both him and McMahon spent two days talking to Bret about various ideas as to how he would drop the title before he left and Bret turned every one of their ideas down. He left McMahon with no choice but to do what he did. Russo said the screwjob ending was his idea and that he ran it by McMahon but Russo was never told what the ending of the match would be. He found out when it happened just like the rest of us.

Bret was being an unreasonable prick leading up the the match, so he got what was coming to him.

True, but he's actually in it this time so it's a genuine game made character so it will look good. I download all my CAWs and the people who create them do a hell of a job, better then I ever could. It's still not the same as actually having the guy in the game though.

Sting has definitely signed a legends deal. He's got merch on WWE's site now. I hope we can get some matches out of him. Having a deal like Jericho or RVD would work out well for him. I mean it will as long as they don't job him out to everyone like they're doing with RVD. He can't even beat Del Rio now? What the fuck is that shit? He's only won like three TV matches since he came back. He even lost to Adrian Neville on NXT a few weeks ago. I know Neville is the NXT champ but they've really been booking RVD as a jobber since he returned.

Pretty nice little short read!

Sting is featured in an interview with the UK Mirror that focuses on the big WWE 2K15 announcement this Monday, and his plans going forward with the company. The interview also indicates that it was Triple H who Sting had been in contact with over the past few months, and that he is “open” to appearing on Monday Night Raw, and wants to work another match, although nothing has been set in stone as of now.

In answer to all the fans asking “why now?”:

“Why now? It’s a now or never thing. I’ve done so many things in the wrestling business but the one thing I’d never done was wrestle or be a part of the WWE family. I didn’t want too hang it all up and retire and disappear again without having done that in some capacity.”

Having that “one last match” at WrestleMania:

“I’ve made it clear I’d love to have one last hurrah, one last big match hopefully. And of course I’ve been outspoken about Undertaker being the opponent. I know what happened at Wrestlemania where Brock Lesnar broke his streak. I think, or at least I’m hoping, that Taker’s still going to come back and that he’s not done. If he’s not done, and he would consider doing it, I’d love to work with him one time. I’d love to wrestle him one time before I call it quits.”

The recent WWE budget cut has been giving the crew some problems on the road, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

The WWE production crew used get access to a bus on Mondays and Tuesdays, and Sunday to Monday on pay-per-view weeks. After dismantling the set around 1 am, they would sleep on location and drive to the next arena the following day to set up the next show.

Now, after the introduction of a $20 million budget cut, the bus has been taken away, so the crew now has to drive to the next city, cutting into the amount of hours they get to sleep. In addition, they could also take naps and catch up on rest after the stage and arena was set up, but this is no longer the case.

Reports now say the change is so exhausting on the crew that there’s a feeling a lot of the workers will start looking for work somewhere else.

I read that last night too. That is complete bullshit and a total dick move on the WWEs part. The "unimportant" people get to suffer while Batista gets seven figures. I hope every last one of their production staff quits on the motherfuckers and Kevin Dunn has to start hanging lights. But they won't, which pisses me off even more.

What bothers me is things like WWE Studios exists while I see stories like this. Can that entity possibly make $ for them? Who among any of us has run out to that Halle Berry movie or The Marine 4?

David Otunga is still being paid too as are other completely useless people and ventures.

I have to imagine that frustration and dysfunction is big among the WWE rank and file staff. I tried to get a job at WWE for over a year when I was unemployed, I was willing to do the NY-> CT commute because it was a place and product I believed in, but then I came to understand I wouldn't get paid at all, I would be doing shit jobs and probably the work of 3 or 4 people because it just looks like a place that piles everything on you and you would never have a life...they think you should work 24/7 for them. Plus, it was impossible to get an interview, I never got one, I'm sure you have to know someone even for the stupidest job. I made LinkedIn contacts, I wrote them an actual hand-written letter/resume to show I was different and unique and willing to do the uncommon, I did it all...nothing.

This company isn't in a good place right now, and they come off as really vengeful to their people.

Cutting money in this manner isn't gonna help them. They're set to lose something like 40-50 million dollars this year because of the network launch. I don't see the point in cutting the expenses with the production crew since they're still in a massive financial hole weather they do it or not. The only way they're going to make up the money is to speed up on making the network available outside of the US. They'll definitely reach their goal of one million subscribers once that happens since they've already got about 700,000 in the US alone. If they made it available in Canada when it launched they probably would've gotten a million subscribers right off the bat.

I think for a brand new unproven streaming network to get that many subscribers within it's first six months is great. It shows it's on it's way to possibly being something special. Vince needs to realise that having Cole, King and JBL telling us to get the network 20 times on Raw isn't gonna convince people to get it. The network needs to show it has some legs to it and will last. People are sometimes hesitant to jump on board when something is new. I don't know how many people joined netflix when it first started but their membership is huge now. If the network can last and there's no issues with it going worldwide the money will come and it will be one of the most successful things the WWE have ever done. It just won't happen overnight and if Vince is a good business man he should know this. Shoving it down people's throats on every Raw and Smackdown isn't gonna convince people. It might actually turn them off.

They are a midsize business that still operates with a small-to-midsize mentality staff wise, at least on the back end which sometimes seeps into the front end for all to see.

I used to work for an entertainment company like this actually. Believe it or not, we used to distribute WWE's CD's to retail funny enough because they were signed to our label.

Anyway, the mentality is "one department takes a hit, you all have to take a hit" - whether it makes sense or not. It was awful to deal with because it wasn't logical and you were constantly fearful of your job, absolutely no way to run things.

It's a tale all too common in big business. How many times have any of us seen our co-workers laid-off (leaving their workload on the employees that remain) and then hear about the CEO's getting fat bonuses later that year?

I hope it fucking backfires on the WWE big time. I hope those poor workers are so exhausted in a few weeks that the goddamn Raw stage comes right down on someone named the Miz.

Oh, and I can't remember where I read it but the Sting ad last Monday apparently cost the WWE two hundred thousand dollars to produce. So we're all glad Sting is back but what is more relevant?

Rusev vs Swag was solid. Ending makes me think fued will continue.

Y2J vs Wyatt was good but Wyatt needed this victory.

Battle Royal was aight Miz winning was just crap.
Cesaro, Ziggy, or Sandow really needed this win. Cesaro has lost Heyman and got eliminated by Slater, dude has lost managements faith. Sad day.

Fatal 4 Way had its moments. Obvious Cena was gonna win.

Solid wrestling throughtout. Imma check out Tag and Divas Title matches tomorrow.

Jericho is staying through Night Of Champions in September. Him winning here extends the feud and gets the big rematch at Summerslam where Wyatt goes over. Then they have the rubber match where Wyatt wins again. I'm pretty sure Jericho wouldn't have returned if Wyatt wasn't going over in the end.

I think I'd prefer a maniacal screwjob finish by Wyatt, leading to a rematch, leading to a win by Wyatt. By having the family pound on Jericho they would maybe gain some of the ground back that they lost with losing the feud to Cena. But I don't write it so what do I know?

I'm torn on Summerslam now. The prospect of Lesnar coming in and pounding Cena into dust intrigues me. But the prospect of Cena standing tall, hustle, loyalty and respect at the end of the show sickens me. I think I'll let the undercard decide it for me. If Rollins and Ambrose get to have the match they should (ie brutality) it would sell it. But maybe just having them in a match period would be enough.

On an unrelated note; the WWE is thinking of dropping the Rusev angle what with what happened to the Air Malaysia plane.

No, they're not. Dirt sheets started reporting there was "fan speculation" about that and through a game of internet telephone people started thinking WWE is really considering that. Lana coming out tonight and cutting promo about how the claims of Russia being responsible for that is American propaganda confirms they're still pushing Rusev.

As for the matches.

The tag title match was great but I really wanted the Wyatts to win.

The fact that they blue balled us with the Ambrose/Rollins match pissed me off.

Paige v. AJ was very underwhelming. Both of them were sloppy as fuck tonight. I hope they can work something out and deliver a good match later, right now it seems like they have no chemistry.

Rusev v. Swagger was ok but the finish was dumb. I'm hoping for a flag match at Summerslam.

Jericho v. Wyatt was an underwhelming match and Jericho going over really confused me. I know they're continuing the feud but I thought Jericho's win was way too clean and simple. How are they going to explain Wyatt's loss? Are they going to play the "reborn stronger" card for the 3rd time this year?

The battle royal was fun. Miz winning doesn't piss me off because he's been pretty entertaining since his return.

The main event wasn't as shitty as I expected. The lack of post match shenanigans was lame though.

Khali versus anyone is no good...I don't understand why he is employed still, he can barely move, knows absolutely zero wrestling holds, and has to be a huge terror to work with due to his limitations. Other than keeping him on the roster for ambassador related things, he has no more business inside of a ring.

Glad Zack Ryder got the win, he deserves more push.

Lesnar went away for a couple months which is why he got the pop. If he came out a week after WM30, forget it.

It's possible that that'll happen :(, especially if Lesnar's contract is very limited and only allows him a few matches a year. Maybe he'll win it then have Rollins cash in on him or something?

There was a loooooong time that I considered Mankind to be the worst World Champion in WWF/E history, but since Rey Mysterio won the title in 2006 there have been so many bad champions.

Rey Mysterio
Rob Van Dam
Jeff Hardy
Sheamus (was just too early)
the Miz
Alberto Del Rio
Jack Swagger
Mark Henry
the Big Show
Kane
Christian (what was the point of that?)

And not only those guys but there are a lot of good champions that had some bad reigns (the Undertaker, Batista, Orton, Bryan, Edge, Cena). Any reign that lasts less than three months is a shit reign in my books. But those didn't happen as much before Rey won it in 2006. I think his reign was the beginning of the end of decent title reigns (save a few) in the WWE.

I thought Mankind kicked ass! But I am one of the very few who think that. Just seeing THE title change hands on Monday Night Raw and be in the hands of someone like him I thought was a special moment.

There are chapter titles. It looks like it will be documentary mixed with matches. They did the same thing for the Legends Of Mid-South wrestling DVD last year. They would do a little bit of talking and then show a few matches. That's how all three DVDs for Mid-South were. That was an excellent compilation for those who haven't seen it, it's worth checking out. A Sting DVD collection is long overdue. This should sell pretty well for them or maybe make it a network exclusive to try and get people to subscribe to it.

The Sting/Muta that's listed, is that the one where Muta beats Sting in japan? That's one I'd like to see. I hope the early WCW has the cool Sting theme & not overdubbing that man called sting crap. Face of WCW & he had the shittiest theme.

I think it looks like a good set. I still prefer full pay per views. I'm still crossing my fingers for a Halloween Havoc Anthology, but that'll have to wait for the Network to fail. Documentaries always bore me. I really don't care about how Stings life was. I want matches. So inter-splicing documentary with matches works better for me. But I would be happy with just matches. And the WWE glosses over too much in their documentaries for me these days. Like, would they even mention that he spent the better part of the last ten years in TNA? No. They'd just say there were things keeping Sting from the WWE and let that be that. I think I'll get it.

I LOVE wrestling documentaries but WWE only shows and tells what they want and NEVER goes into great detail really.

"Phoenix police said former wrestler Bryan Danielson, who goes by Daniel Bryan, and his wife [Brie Bella] were pulling into their carport in the Arcadia area about 7 p.m. on July 24 when two suspects dropped their loot and ran out of the house.

Phoenix police said they broke the back door to get into the house.

Danielson caught one of the suspects, 22-year-old Cesar Sosa, and was able to detain him until police officers could take him into the custody."

FIrst off, former wrestler????
Secondly, I wonder if he got the guy in the Yes Lock to detain him, taht would be SO AWESOME!

I saw an interview with him saying that he used to laugh when he'd read "insider info" about how him and WWE are not on good terms, and how he kept in touch with Vince quite a bit but things just never worked out :lol:

He keeps saying that he really wants to wrestle and have matches, and his dream match is to be against the Undertaker, but he got super let down when the streak was broken. Think of that Sting vs The Streak. That build up would be amazing....

I don't get why the WWE comic-con panel wasn't streamed live on the network? Especially with Sting showing up. These are the kinds of things that need to be shown on it. They're acting like Sting working with the company isn't that big of a deal. Summerslam is their second biggest show of the year. Why didn't they make arrangements for Sting to wrestle his first WWE match on it? That would've got those membership numbers up, I assure you.

Well, he performs under the name Daniel Bryan now. So Bryan Danielson is a former wrestler;)

Maybe Brie put on a special performance for the robber to distract him until the cops got there? I doubt he was detained with a wrestling move though it would've been pretty cool if he was. Not that Bryan isn't a badass but could you image if a robber broke into the home of someone like Kane or The Big Show and got caught by them:boxer:

According to an IGN interview, Sting is set for one more match and that's it. Hogan apparently played a big part in Sting signing for WWE and making the appearance at SDCC. Dude seems in good spirits and happy to be where he is, which is nice to nice. Most dudes his age in the business are off the deep-end at this stage.

The big difference between Sting and so many of his peers is while they're all washed up and broken down he still wrestled every week in TNA. And it decent matches too. He's six years older than the Undertaker. I could care a less but he could last a few years in the WWE as a regular (with a Jericho or RVD schedule).

Yup, plus Sting took better care of himself with regards touring/partying etc. I think we might see Sting do a couple of years on and off, he just wants his 'Taker match at 'Mania first. I mean, that's the biggest stage in wrestling entertainment, and now that the streak isn't a thing anymore, it can be a proper fun match between two guys who've done basically everything else.

Cant agree more. Sad thing though. After seeing how terrible the Undertaker looked at Wrestlemania XXX (and how infrequent he's wrestled in the last six years) and knowing that Sting wrestled as regular as anyone on the TNA roster I think Sting would make Undertaker look BAD. He'd still lose though. Then he'll get "the bug" and keep going. Unless it's a total disaster.

And hey; they're building Cena as the greatest of all-time. Sting would make a great notch in that belt.
