Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

^See, I find that odd because, I'm glad that they're moving away from having Cena go over in every match.

In other, sadder news: Jericho is promoting his June 6 -7 Fozzy shows in the UK on twitter. While I know that this doesn't mean he'll be gone by then, it does means his days in the WWE are numbered if he going to be focusing on his musical career.

ON the bright side: It sounds like CM Punk and DBD stole the show last night, as they tend to do.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

It might be a little early to say this, but I'll be shocked if another match this year tops Bryan vs. Punk at OTL. That was old school wrestling with loads of ring psychology and storytelling at its absolute best. The crowd was hot as hell for it too, which surprised me considering how rarely the WWE gives us this type of match nowadays. The ending was perfect as well and practically guarantees another match between these two. Not bad for a match that was clearly on the backburner in terms of hype due to the Cena/Laurinaitis circus that no one cares about.

Okay, I take back my statement--maybe Punk/Bryan II can top their OTL match.

Yes, he turned at Over the Limit, apparently.

It was better than Cena/Rock or Taker/HHH at Wrestlmania? That's high praise.

Right now I'm in one of those lulls where I just can't get into wrestling. With this Laurenitis crap and hearing Raw is going to 3 hours long weekly (a move that is a mistake), nothing strong is happening right now. Things might get better for Money in the Bank and Summerslam though, which was the case last year.

I thought Punk/Bryan was better than Taker/HHH and I honestly don't remember much of Cena/Rock beyond Cena doing the worst People's Elbow in history before losing the match.

It was good, but I can name several matches that were superior efforts including:

- Kazuchika Okada vs. Tetsuya Naito (NJPW 40th Anniversary Show)
- Davey Richards vs. Michael Elgin (ROH Showdown in the Sun 2)
- Undertaker vs. Triple H (Wrestlemania XXVIII)
- Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan (Extreme Rules)
- John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar (Extreme Rules)

maybe Punk/Bryan II can top their OTL match.
I'm thinking we might see the return of the "Iron Man" match as this feud progresses. The emphasis is firmly set on both performers and how they have made it to the big time, whilst still highlighting their respective characters and gimmicks - which caters to both the hardcore and casual fans.

I can't speak to the first two but I know I'm in a small minority who felt that Taker/HHH dragged on too long. Don't get me wrong--it was a great effort from both wrestlers but it just didn't draw me in like Punk/Bryan did.

I did skip Extreme Rules so I'll have to seek it out if those two matches are as good as you suggest. I have a hard time believing Sheamus can be in a MOTY candidate unless Bryan did all the work and the impressions I've read about Cena/Lesnar indicated it was a Lesnar beatdown for most of the match with an surprise appearance by SuperCena at the end.

I thought HHH/Taker was dire. More talking than an episode of Eastenders and it turned into Brokeback Mountain in a Cell.

Hey GhostBones, I bet you LOVED this article on Bleacher Report:

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...ure-of-the-wwe

Fact: Ryback isn't getting over unless he actually displays some personality beyond Goldberg clone meets Terminator. In this day and age, no mega monster is going to do so beyond a short-term splash--look at the newly-renamed "no longer a lord" Tensai as another example.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

I'm back...computer died on me...this might surprise some people but I've been actually enjoying Raw the last few weeks. It's been better than usual...at least for my expectations. It's not the greatest, but they are doing a few entertaining things now. The AJ thing bugs me kind of though. Time to change her gimmick I think.

Dear Christ. If writing unjustified bollocks like that can make you a featured columnist, I should be able to walk it.

I've been think of writing a follow up to my original article answering some of the responses and looking closer at why it worked for Goldberg but won't work here.

That's a featured writer?! I'm pretty sure he wrote the same thing over and over again and just swapped out some words. He managed to write a whole "article" without really backing up the opinion stated in his headline.

Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

http://www.tmz.com/2012/05/24/chris-...razilian-flag/

A WWE event in Brazil came to a screeching halt Thursday evening ... when local law enforcement stopped a live match and threatened to arrest Chris Jericho for desecrating the Brazilian flag.

It all went down during a match between Jericho and C.M. Punk -- who was proudly waving the flag in the ring. Jericho took the flag away, crumpled it up and kicked the flag out of the ring ... and that's when police stepped in and put a stop to the event.

We're told Jericho was informed that desecrating the national flag is a crime in Brazil ... punishable by incarceration.
Yikes. WWE has apparently suspended Jericho indefinitely (whatever that means in WWE-speak). I guess Jericho's latest run ends sooner than anyone wanted...

^Just in time for him to work his tour dates.

EDIT: wwe.com says he's suspended for 30 days.
