I wish John Morrison stuck around. He was great talent
I do too. I think he could have been something. Probably not main event material but at least pretty decent mid card material on aesthetic alone. Given time and experience he could have some good shit.
Yeah but had the benefit of getting over with a white hot stable before going on his singles run, plus even after that he still had the betrayal angle hanging with him. Even though he left the shield, the shield never really left him. And even further it's just a different time. They had talent in spades back then, enough that they could waste them. Now they barely have enough talent to keep them covered, and with the questionable booking that they have the talent that they do have is not enough. If Morrison was here now I think he would be pushed pretty decently.
>Seth Rollins appeared on the PodNasty podcast on Thursday and at 8:48 in the video above, you can hear him respond to comments made by John Morrison. Morrison recently said that he would "destroy Seth Rollins at everything." Rollins clearly didn't care for that and fired back at the Lucha Underground star and former WWE performer.
>"If I'm not mistaken, I believe John Morrison is a zero-time WWE World Heavyweight champion. Mind you, zero. As in never once did he win the big one. And I'm, what, not even three years into my WWE career and I've already won Money in the Bank, won the WWE title at WrestleMania, first-ever NXT champion so there's a lot of things that I've already destroyed John Morrison at and if John Morrison thinks he can take me in any of those endeavors, I would love for John Morrison to step up and say something like that to my face."
alright wrestling fags listen up real close cause this is the last and final chance i'm giving your fat asses to get off my board.
/asp/ was originally created for people who who actually participate in their sports. which is why you see threads like MMA where people discuss styles and give others tips. NOT because they think it's cool after seeing it on a fucking tv show like you nerds but because it helps us become better fighters in real life. you see our practice of these sports has given us the right to post here. how many of you actually train to become "wrestlers" (i keep the word quoted because it's not really wrestling it's fucking soap opera)? i bet there's not a single one who actually is training. NO you just watching your shitty tv show all fucking day. THAT'S NOT WHAT THIS BOARD WAS FUCKING MADE FOR
IT WAS MADE FOR PEOPLE WHO PARTICIPATE IN THEIR SPORTS
IS IT SO FUCKING HARD TO GET THAT THROUGH YOUR HEADS??????????????????????????????????????????????????? YOU FUCKING RETARDED AUTISTIC SHITS
maybe we could come to some sort of agreement since it seems that the guys over on /sp/ really hate you (with good reason) and don't want you back i guess you have no choise but to stay here. BUT can you atleast limit the amount of threads you make? im not saying you can't make threads but add a few rules to it
>only make a new general when the old one drops to page 3
>don't make shitloads of threads about the same subject (really there's no need to)
>smal items don't need their own threads you can just put them in the general
>stop the fucking retared "is he autisic" threads and other shitposting
>STOP FUCKING USING TERMS LIKE "PLAYING WITH TOY GUNS" OR "MMAUTISTS" AND STOP FUCKING CALLING REAL WRESTLING GAY
>that means no trolling of ANY kind
if you can comperehend this set of rules i believe we would be happy to accept you here and allow you to post your threads
That new smackdown mauro ranallo is really fucking good, I prefer him over all the other announcers currently, he actually made the matches interesting unlike maggle and jerry the gay lawler
>mfw based orton buried the dirtsheets and meltzer and is likely to return at the rumble
Is Goldberg considered bad just because he ended Bret Hart's career?
On his instagram
>I see many of you think I need neck surgery. I heard weeks ago that Meltzer stated it as a fact. I don't keep up with gossip, so I didn't think anything of it. As far as my shoulder, I was cut on 12/8. Things are ahead of schedule and I'm pumped to get back to work. As far as my neck, and I'm only debunking this 'fact' for the sincerely concerned fans, I DONT need neck surgery. Remember, unless you hear about it on WWE.com, you really should take everything you read online concerning pro wrestling with a grain of salt.
B A S E D O R T O N
O U T T A N O W H E R E
Well for that case yeah sure. He's not bad, it's just that he was a subpar wrestler that was pushed to the sky and he kinda thought he was the shit.
Seriously though, when you think Goldberg, do you automatically think "oh yeah he had a couple good matches especially against so and so" or "yeah he's always had a really awesome entrance and he jackhammer/spears people"
If the product and matches were actually interesting then maybe he could announce something. He is neutered by not being allowed to be a non-pg rated heel announcer. Also without someone like JR to work off of her just doesn't care anymore. I mean seriously the best he has to work with is JBL and maggle. It's a surprise he even shows up sober to work.
It's okay I watched it too. I liked it. I liked the new guy, I liked King getting to be a heel again. All and all I was alright with it all. I wish they would let King be the old pervy uncle he used to be.
so im watching some wrestling and my girl walks in and now she thinks im gay

Nah. I like Roman. I just thought it was weird that he over here. Roman has proven to be awesome when he just beats the fuck out of people, so I am hoping WWE can book him a bit better in the future.
LoL, do people here seriously think that any of these Japanese flippy shit midgets are going to have any sort of impact outside of NXT? The IWC delusion is completely unreal. Nakamura, whatever the fuck his name is, is the next Hideo Itami. Or the next Funaki. These dream matches that all of you neckbeards are creaming over will probably happen on the pre-show of some random C-tier PPV. Nobody fucking cares besides you obese fatasses. Vince doesn't care for the tiny 20,000 or so neckbeard smarks who masturbate over this boring flippy shit midget shit. He cares for the general audience. He isn't going to put Daniel 'weak little vegan' Bryan vs Generic Japanese CAW #482434 on Wrestle-fucking-Mania. Maybe it'll be some random RAW match at best.
well thats the problem.
they dont have many top heels.
Owens is probably their best bet because they have worked together in the past.
but like, their top heels right now are owens, sheamus and maybe bray.
>Japanese flippy shit midget
>Nakamura is taller than Cena
>implying he's a flippy wrestler
Are you trolling or just some kind of special moron? Jesus Christ, watch one match before you open your stupid mouth.
Project harder, friend. You're in the professional wrestling section of an anime image board acting like a retard. You're the one who needs to take a look at what's wrong with your life and where you've failed.
Personally I genuinely like him. Every complaint regarding him can also be applied to Hogan, Rock, Austin or any other top guy. Yeah he rarely loses, but if he did it would totally undermine his status as a top guy. There has to be a guy on the roster that can just instantly elevate someone from mid card to big deal. Cena is that guy. A clean win over him is huge and does wonders for a career when the aftermath is booked right.
Add to that, he's great on the mic and can work the crowd better than anybody else they have (except maybe DB). He's better than he gets credit for in the ring too. He's not amazing or anything, but he can hold his own against more talented opponents.
Kiddies seem to forget just how protected Austin was. How protected Hogan was. Cena is arguably the least protected FOTC of all time. He has about a dozen clean losses since 2007. How many did Austin have after becoming the man? Like 3? People need to appreciate just how much worse John could be.
I can't wait until /wwe/ becomes a huge mark for Karl Anderson.
I think it's more the longevity and having the same character in all that time that gets people worked up about Cena. People just got bored with him main eventing all the time.
We have come round to him since he became US champ.
It better not be called Balor Club. It makes Karl and Gallows just seem like a couple of Finn fanboys. I know the Bullet Club is still active in New Japan and they can't use that, but they need to come up with another name better than Balor Club.
Nah. I got a thing for Asian girls. When girls aren't Asian, Latina or any other exotic ethnicity (like Layla), it's hard for me to be particularly interested. White girls are boring.

Would /wwe/ mark?
The discussion here is fairly vapid but other places are thin-skinned and much more prone to a hiveminded circlejerk.
4chan's generally combative nature at least provokes an array of opinions. Wew/leddit are just pansies who genuinely cry about shitposters instead of shitposting back at them.
Would mark for Nakamura boomaying Reigns over the top rop and becoming champion. But knowing WWE, it'll probably go over something more like this:
>3... 2... 1 BZZZZZT
>"FUCK YOUR DREAMS. FUCK YOUR LIFE."
>AJ enters the ring and is thrown over the top rope by Big Show
>JBL: "WELCOME TO THE BIG LEAGUES, KID"
Roman is hung up over the ropes. Nakamura runs in and knees him in the back of the head, sending him over.
It's moot though. Nakamura is still doing shows with New Japan until the end of the month. We won't see him in WWE for awhile. Maybe Bullet Club.
It's not like roided up giants (ah love it maggle) don't stiff each other too. Lesner, GOATberg, and Vader were stiff Fucks on most of their matches. But you can be stiff without doing it like those guys in Japan do it, they just get excessive.
It's not excessive. Its part of the match and what makes it look realistic. You're too used to american sports entertainment where the wrestling takes a backseat to the promos, angles and gimmicks.
Funny, considering there's more psychology in most New Japan matches than there are in WWE. It's not just stiff MMA style strikes. I'm a fan of both promotions. I like characters and stories too, but the match quality in NJPW has WWE beat, hands down.
Last three matches of WK10 are widely considered to be match of the year contenders. Stop talking out of your ass. You didn't watch it, or you're being a contrarian. I can say the exact same thing without any sort of substance about WWE like you just did:
Murican psychology = guys doing the exact same move to each other in a comedic manner
I don't know who the match was between. I think it was the 3rd last match on the card. It was exceptionally stiff but unfortunately my cock wasn't because it was silly they were just doing the same moves on each other really stiff without even trying to dodge or block for laughs.
I watched some of it on and off. Turned it off during the Nakamura v Styles match out of boredom (not saying it wasn't a good match but I'd been watching for a while and wasn't invested because I don't know these guys).
I can agree that the Japanese guys can get too excessive with their stiff strikes. One that stands out is Ishii's unprotected headbutt spot which would be all right if he did it like once a year, but he does it in virtually every big match. But, more often than not the stiff strikes are to areas like the chest and thighs. Those parts can take a stiffer shot just fine.
That was Ishii vs Shibata. I don't know, I kind of like those "strong style" type matches where both of the guys refuse to give up. They don't happen too often, so it's something different.
Well he injured himself numerous times I guess like when he punched a window and put himself out of action for 6 months or something.
I think his spear broke Rock's ribs at Backlash 2003 and he injured Bret with a Jackhammer before the stroke.
yeah he gave Bret a stroke with that kick
poor old Bret, gets injured by greenberg, gets told to do another match with him, Greenberg ends his career.
I think a bunch of WCW guys complained about his spears as well since he just did football tackles and tried to hurt guys rather than an actual wrestling spear.
WWE purposefully cultivated the underdog air around to to ingratiate him to fans.
They are also the ones who hired him after they ultimately did vote for someone else in favour of him after the show ended.
They also hired numerous other of the show's losers.
TE was never intended to create just one winner, dingus.
Obviously they were going to hire more than just the winners, but if he had got eliminated early on and didn't make it to the finals he definitely would not have gotten hired.
Did they even hire tanner?
he is the one who gets fucked the most by WWE PG
>His fucking finisher is the RKO
won't keep it in WWE
>His gimmick is posing to a machine gun sound BRRRT
not PG, won't keep it
won't keep in WWE
>being a total ass and swearing the fuck out of these filthy japs
wont keep in WWE
He needs a totally new gimmick.
He got signed because he knows a lot of clever southern sayings and can talk.
WWE has no intention of making him be a serious wrestle or having him pretty much wrestle at all.
That's all just for Breaking Ground.
>Tfw /wwe/ collectively voted for him and Sara Lee
Which proves Vince right, fans have no clue what will work or what is best for business. Sarah Lee won because she's cute. But she showed no actual talent. ZZ showed nothing during TE, and hasn't improved at all during BG.
>and shows zero ambition to improve.
you mean other than putting more time in the gym with the machines he has zero experince on and talking to mojo and robbie more.
He could be doing a lot more but hes at least trying a bit.
>all this gook shit
>weeaboos for days
Kill yourselves desu famalam
Metalingus was the hottest shit. Even if edge wasn't a good performer I would still mark out every time he came out just because of that. That and when Kane had slow chemical as his entrance song. They need to go back to doing shit like that, even if the match was ass you always had something to look forward too. Right now they hardly have any themes worth getting hype for.
Corporate rock was pretty good too. But yeah I would say so. Corporate mankind was pretty fun too. But yeah outside of vince, Hollywood rock was the best. Rusev could have been great but they fed him to bmj and still have not done much with him.
the GOAT has spoken
Part of me is eternally grateful to Bray for saving this based Man from getting fired and getting him into the Wyatt famalam because he's an awesome fit.
Another part wishes to live in the alternate timeline in which he tried to make it as a Singles Guy because he could've been this generation's Kane/Taker figure, but being the non-dominant Heel in a faction impeded him from that.
When Braun entered the fray it firmed his beta, third-rung status.
the fact hes the best wrestler in that shit stable helps him a shit ton, the fact which wwe had to put him back in it because bray just wasnt that good in the ring.
But braun now looking like the power has leveled down luke.
>because bray just wasnt that good in the ring.
People only think this because Bray very rarely actually gets to wrestle. It's a harmful side-effect of being in a stable of two jobbers who take the heat and one monster who dishes it out.
He only gets to stand on the apron and do his finisher.
He's a fucking great wrestler. Really fast for his size, awesome offense and bumps like a champ. We should see more of him.
>/wwe/ on suicide watch
you mean excited, majority of /wwe/ are part of the roman empire.
One time he needs to just go ahead and pull out all the stops and just go nuts. Stop using his nerfed move set and just go all out. Show the fan base that he is the most talented newcomer that they have. I don't think it will ever happen because he is too humble of a guy. He really just needs to stick it to vince like all of the other top talent has. As much as people say vince hates people who go off script and fuck with him, vince feeds off of people that contradict him. He loves it, he needs it.
They're portraying Owens as too much of a bitch for anyone to believe he has a shot on Bork.
I wanted them to keep Rusev as a dominating force after the Cena feud but that's gone as well.
the clothesline, the best big boot in the business, a top tier superkick all in one match would really open the crowds eyes.
>I don't think it will ever happen because he is too humble of a guy.
spot on in the interview posted above he said
>I personally want all of that for myself. But at the same time, I have brothers at arms that we are very successful together, and I understand that part of it too.
truly a GOAT, no wonder guys all wore those harper club shirts
I don't even hate roman. If he had proper booking against decent wrestlers and not just ROMAN STRONK! He would be entirely believable as the champ. But right now he just isn't it. Either way I still love it when he goes berserk with a chair and beats everyone in sight like he did at tlc. I think he should do that more. It would help his tweener status right now instead of pushing him like a white bread baby face like cena. The only reason it works so well for cena is because he has a lot of in ring and mic talent and the smarks absolutely LOVE to hate him. To the point they will buy tickets just to hope they will be there to MAYBE see him lose.
>tfw based Harper will never have a world title reign
I agree. The guy's booking is all over the place. One minute he's going psycho, beating everyone up and assaulting people just because he doesn't like them. The next, he's smiling and making jokes about testicles. Then he'll go psycho again, then back to testicle jokes. It's a mess.
Roman stronk booking needs to go badly. It's beyond even cenawinslol at this point.
this is on the top of the list of dream matches i have.
both guys can go like crazy.
both guys know how to sell.
both guys have great offense.
and both guys have done some crazy shit.
