and make it so the champ has to fight on both shows or something idk, just get brock off tv

I mean, he already is. We're getting closer to brock having less raw appearances this year than Kane.

Hunter is such a good guy that he tried to rig Reid's drug test to help him pass. Unfortunately for Reid he was so hosed up he couldn't even pass it with HHH's help.

I like how whatculture wrestling's spoiler free title from 2 hours before smackdown aired was "WWE SmackDown Has SHOCK Title Change In UK". Granted it coulda been the Uso match or a carmella cashin but once those don't happen you know what it is.

As entertaining as Flair is, it's hard to like him when he says "Yeah, I only took my marriages seriously for a day. Hahaha."

Smackdown mighta shot themselves in the foot. Surely only a kallas could defeat Brock. Singh distraction optional (but encouraged)

Since AJ likes to sell like a maniac, I predict 18 suplexes. 3 of which make AJ do a full ragdoll backflip.

That man has the largest penis I have ever seen. I actually don't even know if he has mumps, forgot to look. I was distracted - by the largest penis I have ever seen


I don't expect Brock to want to put on a long back and forth match, but if he wants to AJ's the guy to do it with.

tfw Dragon Lee breaks the Hiromu before you get another turn

if they give aj enough to really push brock, and its not just suplex city, it'd do a lot to establish aj as the mega top guy on smackdown.

say aj hits a forearm and gets brock for a visual three and kurt pulls the ref out to save his job because blah blah brand brand w/e

its not for a real title so i think its ok to get a little dusty ith the finish

That Flair documentary was heartbreaking. Ric is one of the greatest ever, but heís very, very lucky to still be alive. Heís an incredibly stubborn person, but I hope heís still able to turn his life around after all of that insanity.

Blooming Brilliant posted:

Both, botches and injuries usually went hand-in-hand.

The one I always remember is him jumping to the outside against Del Rio, and calling the match off because he strained his finger, to which Del Rio just booted him in the face.

I want to say this happened a few weeks before someone else worked through a match long injury (maybe Zayn's shoulder injury against Cena?)

Ah yes, the bizarre thing where people lambast him for trying to take care of his own health. So many wrestlers gently caress themselves up trying to finish mediocre matches, I see nothing wrong with Sin Cara trying to not have to wrestle 5 more minutes with possibly a broken finger.

The macho nature of wrestling gets stupid pretty often IMO. See also Daniel Bryan being on the verge of fighting HHH because they called off a match because he got concussed.

Tonight's a good reminder that WWE scripted Paige to bury Reid Flair in a promo to "get heat," and two weeks later turned her face.

While it was absolutely awful to do this, and awful to not speak to the parents beforehand, but it's also just so indicative of modern WWE's lovely storytelling.

Nobody knew what the gently caress Paige even meant, especially in storyline. Not every fan in a super smart fan, please only do things that make sense in established kayfabe.

Yes he is, why else would he be filled with so much team spirit to support his coworkers while being a loving husband and....

Actually if this leads to Rusev getting on the team through his sheer determination and he ends up in a 1v4 situation against raw and wins, this could be the push Ziggler didn't get but done right.

There is hot news circulating about your favorite or most hated promotion or wrestler, but because of the sensitivity of these scoops I can't talk about them here on Something Awful.

To get the low down exclusive, call my hotline now!


AS I EXCLUSIVELY REVEALED on this forum at the time Austin Aries on today's Talk Is Jericho said he did not ask for a release from WWE instead he was let go.

He didn't say by who though (it was Triple H in a rare and embarrassing for Aries move). Normally releases are pawned off to other people.

Meltzer was still saying the same things he always does on WOR this morning. The documentary didn't really open the floodgates.

Yes the Triple H story is actually true. For maybe the right reasons the rehab story was completely suppressed in the Wrestling media. I don't want to sound as combative about the subject as I usually do but there's a lot of Flair friends/fanboys in the Wrestling media. If was anyone else is likely their name would be published. Just a simple fact really.

Joe Gomez was Ric Flair's rehab "coach" in a trivia note. Ric stayed at his home. I believe Ric doing that tipped people in Wrestling off about the rehab stint.
