Where the gently caress is Big Daddy Yum Yum?

The first time I ever heard a wrestler call a spot was in 1999 when Ken Shamrock roared "SLAP ME" at Ryan Shamrock

There's no reason outside of bone headedness that the Raw womens division shouldn't be really great and interesting.

NXT Womens division elevated itself from "haha, this is a lot better than the Raw Divas" to "holy poo poo, this is the best part of NXT" over the last six months, and this is all it took:

- Becky Lynch becomes #1 contender
- A couple of segments culminating in a contract signing/brawl. Nice video package.
- A really close match where Becky came up just short.

- Bayley becomes #1 contender
- A couple of segments culminating in a contract signing/brawl. Nice video package.
- A really close match where Bayley wins

- Sasha requests rematch. Granted. Main Event! Ironman!
- Nice video package.
- A really close match where Bayley wins

Super, super basic booking. It wasn't even given all that much time outside of Bayley's winning streak (The ironman build was literally one live segment and video packages). They just set the matches up and let the wrestlers do their thing.

That was very cool because it turned the big halftime rest spot into one of the most memorable moments of the match. Imagine they'd just done a chinlock for 2 minutes instead.

i think it helps that corbin is working with smaller guys who can really sell instead of big useless tubs like bull dempsey and rhyno. The tag team element certainly helps because he can do his thing and then get out of the way, but I'd really like to see what he could do in a real match against someone like Neville or Chad Gable after he gets some more experience
He had a decent match against Neville back at the start of the year (it was his first loss in NXT since being repackaged) but they'd probably put on a much better show given another chance

1. Book a Goldberg copycat winning streak building up to a big PPV match
2. Accidentally gently caress up the taping schedule and show her lose before the PPV
3. Pretend like nothing happened and have her still lose the big PPV match by DQ
4. Book her on a long losing streak in which she changes gimmicks
5. gently caress up taping schedule again and show her wrestling in her old gimmick one week after the change
6. Stop booking her cause she left the company suddenly one day without telling anyone
7. Take credit for her success when she inevitably finds it somewhere else

Done.

I've had some of the best experiences & memories of my life from your product. I am forever grateful for it. I've not ashamed I've been brought to tears while watching your product because I was EMOTIONALLY INVESTED in it. Your product has been an escape for me, where during your live shows, nothing outside of those arena walls matter. If I'm going through a rough patch in my life, I know that WWE can help me to forget that, even if it is just for three hours. I don't regret a any of the money I have spent on your product (and I have spent MANY dollars), because I have always supported your product. When you enjoy or love something, you support it. I have even gone as far to have done NUMEROUS unpaid media opportunities in support of YOUR company. I can safely say I have spent five figure sums of money on your product. I have defended your company and the stigma attached to it my entire life. I'm just one singular person, meaningless in the grand eyes of your company, but I'm surely not the only one who can vouch for all these things. That's how much I want to believe in your company.

That's how much WE want to believe in your company.
