lol

Though Pittsburgh fans were rightly outraged by Rollins’ snide and unprovoked verbal attacks, unconfirmed reports suggest that he also hates the local sports teams in Miami, Philadelphia, Des Moines, Seattle, Toronto Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Phoenix, Detroit, Minneapolis, and at least 40 other North American cities.

So I just read that the Sting promo was actually him talking, but the voice was altered as a throwback to the Black Scorpion angle from 1990. Funny part? Sting wasn't the Black Scorpion. I'm not sure what's worse: having people question whether Sting actually did the talking or having Sting resurrect an a characteristic of a wrestler that wasn't even him. Maybe creative needs to review a bit of history...

I'm generally not one to complain about shows I watch. After all, I choose to watch them, and if they're worth complaining about, they're not worth watching. But in this case, I reinvested in the WWE immediately after Wrestlemania last year following a 15 year hiatus -- and I eventually invested $9.99 a month on the Network for what will amount to 10 months when I cancel my subscription. I find no reason to continue to watch after Wrestlemania when WWE and Vince keep insulting fans with horribly-written, watered down, force-fed booking.

I'm okay with them pushing Reigns. I don't like him, but I can handle that. I can't handle Daniel Bryan being buried. I can't handle John Cena lambasting Seth Rollins for forcing him to re-instate the Authority, then just weeks later doing the exact same thing to force Lana into accepting a re-match on Rusev's behalf. I can't stand that Cesaro was incredibly over after Wrestlemania last year, then got buried by Vince, who later said he doesn't have enough in him to connect with fans (which he clearly did after winning the Andre Memorial Battle Royal). I can't stand that the only title that matters is defended every other month (if that) and the champ is on TV once a month -- and yet they refuse to build up any other titles in a meaningful way.

I used to love wrestling. I came back because I saw potential for it to return to the greatness it once was. I was fooled into spending my money. I will continue to watch Raw until Wrestlemania, and I will watch Wrestlemania as well. It's the culmination of what I've watched for the last year -- but that will be it. And it's unfortunate too, because I really enjoy watching NXT, but I won't spend $9.99 per month to watch one hour a week of Wrestling. I've got better things to spend my money on.

I'll continue to watch Raw

Ive always thought you guys were unjustifiably snide and cynical in your assessment of the product, and you were at certain points over the last year, but now I must admit the product is horrible. There is no --- not at all --- story development.

Main event: scripted promo about overcoming odds. Tag match involving participants for four weeks in a row.

Cena: overcomes odds, buries opponents.

Mid card: champion loses non title fight twice. Sets up title fight.

Tag: ditto.

Its awful.

Max Landis' wrestling related follow up to The Death and Return of Superman, Wrestling Isn't Wrestling, is going to be posted to his YouTube account at some point today. From what I gather, it's a retelling of the attitude era, except he cast hot women as all of the wrestlers (except Chyna, who is of course played by a dude). It should be pretty funny. I love that dude's videos.

Zbyszko and Rikishi? Blayze and the Bushwhackers?

Not including Connor... Savage is the only one this year that I care about at all.

Rikishi - Spent more time in the WWE than most realize flipping between a few ginics... but none of them really did much or were very memorable, except for the "stink face". Do you get into the HoF for the "stink face"? Apparently.

Blayze - Women's champ when no one cared about women's wrestling.

Bushwhackers - Fun, funny and energetic. Long careers and had a niche.

Zbyszko - I didn't really watch when he was doing whatever he did... but I guess it was important.

Savage - Savage's abilities and personality (maybe because of cocaine) make him one of the top 10 all time. No-brainer for the HoF.

It's not like they haven't had weak entries before.. Koko B Ware anyone? Also I think they look outisde the WWE bubble and look at careers. The Bushwackers were a comedy tag team in WWF, but as the Sheepherders prior they were really good. Anyhow.. eventually you are gonna have some weak entries. It's a HOF for a scripted sport so I don't lose sleep over who gets in or not.

i'm ok with Alundra Blayze getting in, as she's probably the most talented american female wrestler of all time, and while her WWE career ended on dubious terms, she was in WCW for a while before (and a bit after), and was responsible for bringing back the women's division. Her whole body of work is certainly worthy. The Bushwackers and Rikishi? meh. not so much. But i think they're kind of running out of big names to induct.

he is not. and he probably should be.

as far as others who should be in...

Vader & Elizabeth are the two that come to mind. then once Taker, Angle, Sting, HHH, and The Rock all hang them up for good, they'll be in. Bam Bam Bigelow and Sid are probably good shots, too. Mr T will probably get in as a celebrity at some point. Owen Hart should be in, but his family is very much against the idea.

Benoit and Chyna won't ever get in

That Lesnar taped interview was the best thing all night. Always comes through as a homicidal maniac.

It's depressing how bad WWE has been this year. I'm not the least bit excited for Mania.

Cool moment and all but I'm shocked that the first time Sting speaks in WWE is put on the network instead of TV. I get that they want to sell subscriptions but that should've been on Raw.

What did he say? I didn't switch over in time. I know I'm in the minority here but I mark out everytime I see Sting on a WWE program. Nobody ever thought that would happen.

Nothing important. "I waited 15 years to be in this ring" then some generic threats against HHH at Mania.


Also there were only 4 wrestling matches in that 3 hour wrestling show.
