I'm completely okay with their positivity mantra provided it isn't filthy with weeaboo faggotry

Obviously Vince's strategy of making Reigns look really, really strong while getting RECORD LOW RATINGS is better

Where as Raw is 30 minutes of interrupted matches that happened last week and will happen again on Smackdown, 30 minutes of promos that go nowhere, an hour and a half of adverts, recaps and shilling, and half an hour of predictable 6+ tag team main event, with 0 minutes of actual storylines.
It's actually so rare that we get any sort of real character or story development on Raw that when we do, it instantly becomes an above average episode.

Sheamus has a weirdly fluctuating power level
He jobbed clean to Ziggler in his first big match this year, but he also got to kick out of the MemeKO and beat Orton clean
And then Reigns kicked out of 2 Brogue Kicks
>yfw they pull a fast one on us and let Shaemus win the RR

Owens merch has been flying off the shelves ya mook.
It's 2016. This whole "only guys Vince likes draw" claim has been proven laughably false again and again.
Zayn/Owens is money. Catch up or be left behind.
I would shitposr you with mlp if it didn't get me a ban
When will this glorious beast make his NXT TV debut, anons?
> implying you're going to Mania
i am, got my seats during the general sale.
>Owens merch has been flying off the shelves ya mook.
was, havent seen much lately.
>Zayn/Owens is money.
it was interesting in NXT , how it will be on the main roster no clue
Agreed. Literally begging Vince to debut him even if it's to be thrown out by the Big Dog. I liked when Rusev showed up at the Rumble 2 years ago.
Why don't WWE bother to write storylines anymore? Every single feud is the same:
>heel interrupts face promo
>back and forth trash talking
>heel interrupts faces match for DQ finish
>face saves another face after heel beats on him after their match
>heel sits on commentary for face's match, beats on him after the match, face from last week makes the save
>face sits on commentary during heel's match, distraction finish
>cue the PPV
>new feuds begin the next night on Raw in the exact same way
There is never an ounce of emotion conveyed or rhyme or reason to the booking. Just to guys thrown together in the same formula to see how they wrestle. I miss when almost every single wrestler, from the top to the bottom of the card, was involved in a real angle with a real plot. Today it's entirely in-ring promos which go nowhere. The last real story I remember other than Reigns was Ziggler vs Rusev, which was months ago and was also complete dog shit which went nowhere.
> letz c u do better
holy shit 18+
When you are literally in a business where customers have a direct line to tell you what they want, and you openly spite them by telling them they should want something else instead, you shouldn't be in business.
But that's wrong you retard. The man has made questionable decisions while running the company but he has stuck to a formula that works. The things you like about pro-wrestling are likely cause of things he thought of and implemented.
You being a retard and a critic doesn't mean you're fit for the job. And no WWE isn't about appeasing the vocal minority, which is what you are, you can whine all you want about Roman Reigns or John Cena but the people who actually buy his merch and go to the shows, those are the paying customers, not someone who whines all day about the booking, thinks about "work rate" and says NJPW is better.
You know nothing you dumb smark.
>the people who actually buy his merch and go to the shows, those are the paying customers
But Vince ignores them. They try to tell the live audience how to behave and who to like. They deliberately push Cena merchandise, sometimes selling it almost exclusively, when other wrestlers begin to sell more.
Oh, wow. An anti-smark cucktrarian. How exciting.
You can make whatever pathetic appeals-to-authority you like, doesn't change the fact that Vince's "formula" has been shrinking his audience for 15 years straight.
>The things you like about pro-wrestling are likely cause of things he thought of and implemented.
But I'm not a /wwe/ babby
>This passionate commentary
Makes me want to watch Smackdown now but I just can't, it'd be great if this new guy was on RAW so I didn't have to hear Michael Cole say "OH WHAT A MANEUVER!" and not know what moves are.
You first cuck boy.
>Hurr Vince sucks balls
Why don't you go start your own successful pro-wrestling empire full of people who wrestle in basketball shorts then you genius? You're yet to actually make any valid points.
I like the part where you're such a dumb McMahon cuck that you do something after I make fun of you for already doing it.
State of McMahonlets.
>full of people who wrestle in basketball shorts then you genius?
Owens is literally the top heel in WWE
>Shane & Mr McMahon vs Shawn Michaels & God
>God gets his own entrance into the ring
What the fuck was WWF
How do you have to be so mentally insane to book this
i'm interested in who's fault that is
JR recruited some of the biggest stars ever guys like Rock and Brock. Heyman is credited with recruiting Austin. Who recruited the Shield? Was tn DeMott? I feel like that sort of stuff isn't revealed until after talent personnel retire.
It's what happens when performers are given chances to succeed instead of set-ups to fail
The current WWE creative environment would've buried Austin.
Just consider the ramifications of how fucked up that is.
I believe that all 3 of them were Laurinaitis signings
> who's fault that is
It's ALWAYS Vince.
His insistence on doing things HIS way, rather than the way it was during his most successful era, is why the company's in the shits that it is today
>The New Day are in the ring
>OH MY IT'S THE BEAST INCARNATE
>LOOK, LOOK, THE NEW DAY ARE TRYING TO MAKE THEIR NUMBERS ADVANTAGE COUNT
>LESNAR'S POWERING OUT
>THERE GOES BIG E. BIG E HAS BEEN ELIMINATED
>AND THERE GOES KOFI...NO WAIT HE'S HANGING ON TO BIG E...KOFI HAS NOT BEEN ELIMINATED
>SHE HAS NO BUSINESS BEING IN THIS MATCH.
>WOODS AND KINGSTON CAN'T BELIEVE IT
>LESNAR CAN'T BELIEVE IT
>WOODS TURNS HIS ATTENTION TO THE NXT WOMEN'S CHAMPION
>BAYLEY CAUGHT HIM
>OH MY! LESNAR HAS HOLD OF KOFI!
>IT'S A SUPLEX-OFF MAGGLE
>BAYLEY AND BROCK ARE SUPLEXING THE NEW DAY OUT OF THE ROYAL RUMBLE
>BAYLEY AND THE BEAST
Would you mark?
What happened is you saw Vince in a match, saw Shane and saw Shawn and assumed Attitude era when any wrestling fan who is of age to visit this site would know Shawn was no sort of Christian during that time and that the production is way to good to be 1998 or earlier.

Don't even remember that being his move, just saw a gif one time of two asian female wrestlers do it and thought it looked good. What's wrong with it?
its one of the most dangerous piledrivers, and literally everyone uses it.
one of the mexicans in TNA does it, Drake Younger uses it, Shane Helms invented it and every outlel wants to use it.
Here's an infographic showing how to do it.
Are you fucking retarded? In the vertebreaker all the person taking the bump has to do is make sure they curl their spine enough to land on their shoulders. No way they're gonna compress their sprine
this is literally about as safe move to take as a ganso bomb.
Michael Cole's biggest mark. Does everything to impress Michael Cole. Cuts promos about Cole's commentary on his previous match eg. if Cole criticizes him he says he'll do better then works it into the match (psychology). Hates the other commentators because they get to sit next to Cole.
Cole gets fired by the Authority and Mole goes on a rampage.
Whatever Cole's entrance music is.
Let me explain this to you anon
>Seth gets good ratings first night as a champion because people are wondering what the reign will be and are hyped for it
>Seth gets shit ratings as time goes on because of the horrible booking and making him look weak and lose clean all the time
You know what I'd like?
An older guy who just told it like it was and didn't pander to the current generation. I know why they do it – humility, give them confidence, good grace, respect – I'd just like an old guy to be completely legit.
Like if Sting said: "Yeah, Seth? He's a great wrestler and he does some really neat flippy stuff that wasn't popular in my day but he's not half the worker I am."
Prove what? WM 31 was WWE's highest grossing live event ever, the main event was Brock vs. Reigns. Brock lost his title in weird circumstances and then he opened the show and he said he was invoking his rematch clause against Rollins. People stayed tuned in cause they wanted to see what Brock would do but then they wrote him off the show for 3 months, and the next week RAW ratings started going down under Jasethy's reign and his 15 minute "STING I WANT MUH STATUE" monologues.
Is that enough logic for you?
Holy fuck that was a bad segment.
Seth's adlibbing is atrocious if that's anything to go by. I know his promos were clearly overly-scripted but there are a few flubs of his that make you think he needs a script because he flounders without strict guidance.
I know, and I'm fine with that mostly, they still stand out as very mechanical spot-fests, though.
They're like the KO vs Cena matches but they didn't fully dedicate to the notion of two titans just throwing haymakers from square one like those matches did.
And you should try acting less butthurt. I have no clue what kind of evidence you're asking for. You probably don't even really require any and trolling on anime imageboard is your favorite past time. Who knows.
>it's a "Seth killed ratings!" "No he didn't!" Episode
Let's shortcut it to the eventual answer we always reach: he and Creative made a damn good tandem effort and both spitroasted the ratings over an open campfire.
>Liking Seth "Worst drawing champ since Bret Hart small dick" Rollins
>He thinks the top rated RAW happened cause of the man who ushered in the record low ratings era
and not cause of Brock opening the show, the night after the Rock and Ronda Rousey (RIP) showed up and casuals were tuning in to see the aftermath
>Nawww mang they totally tuned in for Jasethy who didn't even show until the 2nd hour.
Please have sex.
>all this jelly at the GOAT
Stay mad your B+ faves will never match the A+ player
I can't really blame people for tuning out right now.
Literally their two biggest draws (DBry and Cena) are benched, whereas at least last year they were there to rely on.
I have no idea how they're going to fill out the Mania card.
He's not a Main Eventer, though, you'd have to look at who was during that period to see who that lies on (Seth, during the Sting storyline I think?).
To see whether Cena still has the ratings drawing power you'd have to view the momentary break-downs. Making lump-assumptions as you're doing about non-Main Eventers when WWE pins so much of its program's importance on one Main Eventer at any given time is ineffectual.
Like I said: this was pre-Vince falling for BMJ
It's going to be a long, painful ride until Vince discovers the Cena to Reigns's Orton and there's no guarantee things will get better then.
>Royal Rumble 2016
>last three contestants are Reigns, Lesnar and Haitch
>Lesnar, already pissed that he has to fight this PPV, is further annoyed by Haitch during the match and proceeds to eliminate him

>RAW the next night
>segment with Stephanie and Brock
>Steph and Paul are flinging banter back and forth until Steph loses it and slaps the beast
>oh no she didn't
>Brock F5s Steph
>Haitch comes running out to save his wife
>Haitch vs Lesnar at mania set in motion
>NJPW acquisitions were kayfabe news
Is this true? Sorry for slowpoking.
His body is alright but his face is absolute shit tier. Roman looks way better than him, for one
>I don't like /wwe/ but I will post in their threads anyway because im a loser with no friends to talk to instead

>Talking about how an unappealing man can't over like an appealing man can
>Presented with evidence of an unappealing man getting more over than an appealing man
>Refuting by meme-ing
You forgot to post a fedora.
> Ambrose = Austin
No he isn't, Austin wasn't a fucking goof, he was a badass that punch, kicked, and stunned everyone he came across.
> Owens = Foley
Owens doesn't have an OUNCE of charisma that Foley has, and Foley was a bigger badass that Owens will ever be.
> Breeze = Michaels
Michaels appealed to BOTH women and faggots. Breeze only appeals to faggots and faggots only. Plus Breeze wouldn't tie Michael's shoelaces when he comes to both character and ring work.
It's a Kardashians-style show following the Divas 'personal lives' (quotes because it's fake as fuck). Imagine watching WWE but taking out the action and focusing entirely on the women and the men around them.
