Do you even read this thread? Everyone here loves him from what i've read. In fact, a number of pages ago I went on about how he should be pushed as the top face in the company. At least for a little while, to give Cena a break and for Vince to decide who his next guy is gonna be. Kinda like how Bret Hart filled the gap of being the top guy between Hogan and HBK.

I got some bad news about Kidd, he busted his knee up bad at a recent house show and reports say he'll be out for almost a year. Him and Gabriel weren't going anywhere at all so it doesn't matter. They've been tagging for almost a year now and they've barely got any TV time. Of course it would help if either one had any character or personality to speak of that could get you behind them in the least. Being good in the ring doesn't get you much of anything in the big time, you need some kind of personality. There are very few exceptions to this, Chris Benoit being the best example. But he made everything so beliveable it was hard for people not to get behind him.

Bryan is second for me right behind Punk. After that would be Cesaro and Sandow. Punk is right at his peak now but still has a few good years left. The potential in Bryan, Cesaro and Sandow is huge and the WWE hasn't even tapped into all I feel those three are capable of.

The Shield unfortunately hasn't faded yet as they broke up the first match of Smackdown last night and beat up Orton costing him the match.

So either make a change or shut the fuck up about it already.

I probably worded that wrong. I want The Shield to become bigger and have a purpose. When they attacked Orton, it just seemed random. Pretty sure they're involved with Punk somehow.

It seems like TNA has made a decision I actually approve of and are scaling back to four PPV's a year. I'm sure it's mostly because they hemorrhage so much money but I think that it's a good idea.

It is a good idea to have less PPVs. It's very old school and it allows time for feuds to build up and for champions to have longer reigns. But what they're replacing the monthly PPV's with isn't. The months they don't have PPVs they will tape specially themed shows called One Night Only and it will focus on something different like one month will be the X Division and the next will be the tag team division or something. They will air on friday nights and cost $14.99.

That's right, they're gonna charge you to watch pre-taped PPVs. Dumbest idea ever since the spoilers will be out long before the show airs. This one night only concept would be better if it was on free TV but this will flop terribley for them on PPV.

Of course it will. But remember; this is a company that started out as a PPV only company and taped a months worth of shows at once. And they had the Johnsons.

It's the first Gooker nominee of 2013!

Them starting out on PPV really wasn't a bad idea. Since they were a new company people were probably curious in checking them out, so I don't think the spoilers hurt them that badly then.

The problem is for those that don't get the PPVs online somehow, why would you pay for a show that was pre-taped 3 months before? They don't start airing these until april but they already taped the first two today. That's right, we know PPV spoilers months in advance. It's one thing to have them a week or a few days ahead but months? That's the dumbest shit i've ever heard. I'll still probably check the shows out once they show up on a torrent site but Dixie, Hogan and whoever the hell else is in charge are more out of touch than Vince if they think people are gonna pay to watch these shows.

These shows are supposed to operate sperately from the TNA storylines so I guess they're just fun shows to watch that won't have any barring on the current angles. On free TV this is a good idea but it's not for PPVs.

Starting as PPV only wasn't a bad idea but the way they went about it was. Look at the wrestlecrap.com induction on it. I don't know many people who were going to pay for the Flying Elvis, midgets and Jeff Jarrett as your centerpiece every week.

And the new PPV idea could work if:
1. they do what you said and have no storyline elements
and a big
2. they go all out
If they have a X-Division only PPV they have to have at least one KILLER match on it that gets a lot of internet buzz and people will pay for it. And not just Styles vs. Daniels #2934, I mean something big. Or if they have a Hardcore one they have to do something huge that people will just want to see. They'll have to focus soley on the wrestling because I don't know how many times I skipped a Smackdown because I read the spoilers two days in advance. And they'll have to do it for every PPV.

Speaking of wrestlecrap.com, the new site is brutal.
