How's the WWE doing these days?

Bigger girl is probably a mega-whore backstage.

I got back into a few years ago, back when I posted on the pro wrestling ground a lot, but after a while the shine wore off. It wasn’t the same as it used to be. I even thought the mid 2000’s was pretty fun.

From the little I’ve seen, WWE has become GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling). Lots of girls, lots of spandex, ridiculous story lines and not much else.

They can’t even give us a good video game anymore.

WWE 2k20 was so bad they completely scrapped this year’s game… for the first time in like 20 years, there wasn’t a new game this year.

Looking forward to the AEW game though.

I did hear that. Do you like AEW? I think I watched their first ppv, and that was it.

I’ve said before 2k17 was the reason I bought my xbox, and that blew.

Its 1000% easier to watch than WWE. Better production (not nearly as many stupid cuts), and the booking generally makes sense. Sure, they definitely have some misses as well, but I can say with certainty I can almost always watch a 2 hour Dynamite on Wednesday or a 3+ hour PPV whereas I haven’t been able to watch a full Raw or Smackdown in years… by the end of the first hour it feels like I’ve been sitting there for 4.

I don’t watch anymore but seems so stale when I last watch. No believability, clearly written by people who don’t know wrestling and what makes money.

Another positive for AEW is that they only have a PPV once every 2-3 months, so there is actually some build for feuds/programs.

Not like WWE where you literally see the same match 6 weeks in a row.

I actually really miss Lucha Underground.

They should run a gimmick where a small group of wrestlers go retro and treat it like it’s real, and not break character ever. Have them go off a on some talk show appearances. Get the audience wondering. Do a John Stossel type interview.

Bring back the attitude era. They’d have tons of material given our current times right now.

Stir things up.

Well since the old days the only thing anyone’s really missed is that they took their homoerotic soap opera from Bears and roided out buff guys with a few chicks that would be doing Gonzo porn otherwise… to Twinks and Skinny fats… with a lot of chicks that would be doing Gonzo porn otherwise…

No offense, but that’s the worst wrestling game ever made. At least in modern times.

I think their handling of Emma is a good example of how stupid they are. Emma is hot, good wrestler, good on mic, should be at least in the mix as someone who can go to top to middle of women’s card and have title shots/runs to mix things up. Shes also Australian, they have an Australian tag team, and an Australian as UK champion, could have a female Australian stable.

When shes out on injury they fire Eva Marie since she can’t wrestle and decide to repackage Emma as Emmalina, a sexualized Eva Marie figure that can actually wrestle. Bunch of Emmalina videos aired. She finally does the Emmalina gimick at one house show and they don’t like it. She herself doesn’t like the overly sexualized gimmick. So they bring her back as the original Evil Emma with no explanation and have to punish her for their bad booking by jobbing her out and firing her.

But before they fire her they give her two high profile matches with Asuka who is still booked as a monster. Does Asuka squash the girl thats been jobbing for months and will immediately be fired? No, they have long competitive matches where Emma gets most of the offense in. This way they can make Asuka look weak before firing Emma. It just makes sense!

How about Aleister Black… out for a long ass time… give him interesting promo packages… and have him return to go straight into a program with Big E by interfering in a main event title match to close Smackdown.

Not on the show the next week.

Fired the week after.

Their network sucked. Didn’t have many old wcw / ecw ppvs. No old Raws or nitros .

Overall pretty shitty I thought. I canceled after my free trial.
