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

That's probably the biggest problem with WWE right now, the oversaturization of the product. With 5 hours of the big shows and 1 hour each for main event and the morning show, its too much right now.

Way to go Vince nothing like changing the main event at the PPV with only two weeks to go. Other than that it was some of the better wrestling in quite a while. AJ/Cena, noone cares unless of course we can see some Aj in a state of undress.

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

Linda's officially lost again, in case anyone was interested. Also of note to any Canadian fans that are lingering about in the thread, the Score's Renee Paquette was hired last month by WWE. She will be a backstage interviewer on Raw. She hosted "Aftermath" on the network. This has been kind of exciting for all us Renee fans. No word yet on her debut.

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

Scott Steiner is suing TNA for...one million dollars, stemming from injuries suffered during a house show last year against Jeff Hardy. He claims Jeff was drunk at the time.

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

A very interesting interview with Triple H regarding Wrestlemania 29...including the fact that he intends on wrestling at 29 (I really hope we don't get Trips/Undertaker 3.5) and he doesn't think Austin will wrestle, and thinks Lesnar will return at 29 as well.

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

If HHH wrestles anyone, I think it would be Lesner. It would serve a good bookend too if this is really a "Retirement" match, based on the events of this year.

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

I'm still hoping for the long rumoured Undertaker/Brock match. Triple H Vs Brock 2.0? The first one was kind of meh...another one with an even longer wait between matches I don't think would be any good.

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

Been giving some thought to some of WWE's recent wasted opportunities, in talent that is. If you look at the WWE product, it's obvious that their goal is to appeal to all demographics, however, they keep screwing this up.

WWE nearly struck gold with Booker T in early 2003. Sure, a lot of that storyline was in bad taste (the lines Triple H was given were particularly awful), but the basic premise was a great idea (reformed convict becomes a wrestler, climbs to the top of WCW during it's decline and is working his way to the top of WWE). It's not just a storyline that could have served as an inspiration to many young guys who have been in trouble with the law, but one that had factual basis in reality and one that could have created a lot of real emotion. Not surprisingly, WWE completely fucked the storyline up and Triple H went over decisively and cleanly at Wrestlemania.

WWE had another chance to do something like this with MVP during his tenure, they never really touched upon it though. MVP is a particularly talented wrestler who happened to spend the best part of a decade in jail before reforming, and learning to wrestle. MVP could have easily made it as WWE or World Heavyweight Champion, had WWE packaged him as a face, and booked him appropriately. I don't think MVP ever really recovered from his year long humbling in 08/09, and the fact he was never booked higher than the midcard following this humbling, was probably a strong factor in him leaving to join NJPW (where incidentally, he was put over as the company's first Intercontinental Champion and has been booked strongly as a Gaijin, from the onset).

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

A very interesting interview with Jeff Hardy, who states he's close to making a decision on his future with TNA when his contract expires in January and that he'll be debuting a new character as well.

Even if he wanted to return to WWE, I have my doubts that they'd take him back at this point.

^Exactly.

He has two strikes, and he's usually begging for a third. If he were to be allowed back in the WWE at this point I would immediately lose what little respect I have for their Talent Relations department.
