The latter. I was explaining that even in wrestling world it's all Finn loving with people and psyching himself up with war paint, in essence. It's not like Kane, Taker, or Bray where he's supposed to be otherworldly.

Yeah, but like the problem with a Supernatural Character telling a Psychological Character that is actually a Supernatural Character is that if the Psychological Character doesn't say "That's nuts" and plays into "that's evil" then it threatens to make the Psychological Character come off like a Spooky Character.

Like, Undertaker waffled back and forth his entire career and Kane essentially went from being a Spooky Character to a Crazy Fucker while Bray seems to be going the other way. I doubt Finn would ever get deep enough down that rabbit hole to matter but bad storylines do attritional damage and if the Demon gets treated like a Spooky Character then it kind of risks making it goofy the next time it gets played as Psychological Character. Not in the sense that people will now think Finn is supposed to be a real Demon, but rather that people will find the Demon goofy instead of cool.

Basically lameness is contagious and this seems to threaten to infect "the Demon".

As I've not been watching closely I'm unclear on how Finn has handled all of Bray's silliness.

Do you think they showed Finn the video beforehand so he could practice a reaction? they totally didn't

back when practical effects were more of a thing a lot of the legendary horror directors wouldn't let the cast see monsters/effects until during the initial take so they could get a legitimate horrified reaction out of them and vince is directing the grandest horror of them all

For instance, Ridley Scott never told Veronica Cartwright that an alien creature was going to burst out of John Hurts' chest.

So the reaction you see in the movie is genuine fear.

I'm watching "highlights" from RAW on youtube.

Holy poo poo, Bray in drag. How did they not realise it was a bad idea from everyone laughing at how stupid that idea was?

And Sister Abigail is so bad that Alicia Fox might possibly get a pass for botching both finishes she was in so badly. Her scissor kick wasn't even close, and she managed to thoroughly botch tapping out.

Somewhere between Elias/Apollo #8, All-Hands Women's Match #43 and Let's All Punch Bray Wyatt In The Dick #616 I started really deeply feeling the "I should stop watching" blues for the first time in a long time. I dunno, y'all.

Also did Enzo take a dump on the tour bus again or something, because really, what the gently caress.

Enzo is really quite astounding in that in all my years of watching him he's both being super over, and they have been alergic to the concept of putting him over. It really wouldn't be that hard to have him win a singles match every so often. To allow him to get the pin via finisher in tag matches (not just Cass throwing his limp body onto his opponents).

And yeah, the "I should stop watching" was strong with me yesterday. I didn't even like the New Day/Usos match, that's how jaded I've become

The most underrated part of Raw was during the Elias match when Cole started telling a story about how Slash from Guns N' Roses said the Elias was the future of music and Graves was absolutely furious.

I haven't been able to figure out if this is just more dumbass Vince commentary or if it's Cole's character loving with Graves' character and it's actually genius.

I was mainly agreeing with Vinny's review- a bit too long, the corner cane spot should have been the finish, too many weapon spots throughout (they started with them).

Nah.

Seriously, it only seems poo poo when compared to the WWE Network. The english is laughable but it gets the point across and it even separates matches into separate videos, something the Network never did. I also rarely have problems streaming live shows.

Then again you may be talking about the design in which case I'll say I'm a function over form kind of guy so whatever.
