    WWE General WWE Discussion

    Well, we've been getting a lot of topics of late that are more suited to casual observations than generating discussion and have been swiftly dropping from view without as much as a howdy do from the majority of members.

    So this is where you put the stuff you wanna mention but you doubt will get much response.

    Think Matt Hardy's fat? Hate The Miz? Wish Drew McIntyre would get fired already? If there's no topic for it already, stick it in here and let the world know.

    Basically, discuss WWE stuff in here...

    Re: General WWE Discussion

    I'm glad that you've decided to make this, as, if people follow by it, it should help out a lot to have smaller discussions centralised here.

    What is everyone's thoughts on the Alberto del Rio video packages over the last few weeks?

    Thought it was a soap operah commercial at first, took me a while to realize who he was. I am really looking forward to seeing what he can do.

    On another topic, does Husky Harris remind anyone of Dusty Rhodes? They both have the same physique and in ring styles.

    Re: General WWE Discussion

    Can we please ask the list questions in here? I hate seeing lists of "Pick your top 6 favorite WWE Superstars" and then another thread of "Pick your top 7..."

    As for Alberto Del Rio, I like the video packages. Most of the time I don't pay much attention to what he's saying but I love when we see vignettes for new superstars!
    Is Alberto going to be doing something like O'Haire? That would be great!

    Jim Ross Being Edited Out of WWE Opener

    I am not sure how many of you might have noticed it, but JR was edited out of the WWE Opener Video. Here is is comments:

    How do you feel that the best boradcaster in the world is edited out of it?

    I read they took him off as punishment for appearing on camera at the UFC Pay Per View. I'm not a fan of the decision, since Ross' voice has been on so many memorable moments and Cole's voice is just annoying.

    I couldn't care less. It's the intro to the show, so many people over-reacting to this.

    I am actualy enjoying Michael Cole as of late. I mean, he has evolved in sooooo many ways since begining. I mean, now he is being used as more then just a commentator. Which is a good thing. .

    You're very right, his packages do have a very telenovela feel to them. I look forward to seeing how he is developed.

    Yes, Husky reminds me of Dusty in a way, but we'll have to see him more to see how similar their styles are. Either way, I loved T.A.D and Husky's one of my favourites in NXT2.

    I totally agree with you, Kakarot, that would be great. Unless it's a lengthy thread with a well-thought out original post, most of these lists could well go down well here.

    I'm so with you there, I love the vignettes for bringing guys in. I'm really intrigued as to what they'll do with Alberto, though I find it amusing already that he goes from being 'Dos Caras Jr' (Two Faces) to being 'un hombre honesto' (an honest man), though it must be said that in Spanish 'tener dos caras' is not exactly the equivalent of 'to have two faces'; the latter is about dishonesty, the former is about having two different personalities - tener doble cara is more an equivalent of two-faced here, so they may be riffing off an English mistranslation.

    Either way, I'm intrigued. His gimmick seems to be the contrary of most Mexican stereotyping. He lives an aspirational lifestyle and is evidently rich. He extols honesty and educación superior (higher education). I think they are building him as a heel, but who knows - they've had him fight as a heel and a face in the time he's been with them. Here's his list of matches with the WWE, usually dark matches against faces. What's also interesting is that he had an MMA run and is trained in Græco-Roman wrestling, so he's more of a technical wrestler than the high-flyer most people expect from south of the border.

    Re: Jim Ross Being Edited Out of WWE Opener

    I really couldn't give a shit about an opener. But if they're punishing him, for God knows what reason, trying to drop him from current day WWE memory like you did with Flair and Hogan isn't the way to go. It's not like JR is basically bashing them or anything.

    Dumb punishment

    I'm not certain it's really a punishment. Maybe, but Cole is the voice of WWE now like it or not.

    I would rep you right now if I could.But I cant. Anyway, they are just modernising the outdated stuff, keeping it relevant to today. Like BInvader said, far too much has been made of this.

    I couldn't understand a single word of what he was saying. His voice was entirely monotone and I struggled to care that he was on my screen... I'm wondering if he'll enter the ring masked, but work promo's without it, in an almost Zorro type manner, where he fights without an identity.

    From what I've seen and heard from Husky so far, I'd say that was an insult to Dusty Rhodes.

    As Welbek said, as long as the opening post is well thought out and reasoned list threads can be quite entertaining, but yeah, they are a great contributing reason behind the creation of this thread, as many of them are very little more than spam really.

    I actually agree with Raiz. They bore me to tears.

    Re: General WWE Discussion

    What exactly was Ross replaced by anyways?

    RaiZ, I think he will wrestle without the mask. He did on tour and in FCW.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZSeQtgMEQ4

    Welbek, I'd say managment was going for something ironic like that. I hope to hear commentators say "Alberto del Rio is no honest man, he's TWO FACED!" Maybe he could form a short friendship with someone and then attack them from behind or something... I think it would be funny.

    I also agree, if they have great reason for making a list then make a thread for it but don't make a list just for the sake of making a thread.

    Jim Ross IS wrestling ,period. WWE would be at a loss without him. Though he's a great fit for TNA.
    As for Michael Cole, Heidenriech butt slamming him on Smackdown says enough,lol

    I threw up a lil in my mouth reading that,lol.

    Jerry Lawler,if anybody is. Michael Cole is & always will be a tv news guy transplanted.

    Pro wrestling was not his first career choice. News was.

    JR's heart & soul are in pro wrestling. Can't say the same for Cole.

    Thoughts on who will be revealed as the true leader of the Nexus?

    Some sites have alluded to a top star, one put out the names John Cena or HHH.

    I get the feeling it may be Vince,sort of like when he was revealed as the "Higher Power" during the attitude era.

    Hopefully it won't be Michael Cole. Jim Ross however could work,as payback for years of WWE abuse,etc.

    I think it could be Triple H coming back as a heel

    Re: General WWE Discussion

    Does anyone else find the new ring announcer for NXT to be terribly grating? It's not only her voice, but also her tone - half the time, she sounds like she's talking to her dog. I half expected her to follow up with her weird 'and he is the world's strongest man, Mark Henry' with 'yes he is! yes he is, isn't he?' Little things get to me, like, when announcing two people coming to the ring at the same time, saying 'X and he is the __ champion, Y'. The 'he is' is pretty redundant. Maybe it's just me being pedantic.

    Savannah was fired and replaced with her... I obviously hate her.
