And again going to a totally other company and causing a scene is a cool exciting thing to do. How does that do anything for Roman.

If you look at it from McMahon's point of view I can totally see how he'd think this was a heel move. A disloyal employee who's realised his worth and is using it to extract wealth from his boss Vs the good boy who always does as he's told to get his dinner egg? No brainer who Vince is behind.

the light comes up on the monday night raw ring, roman reigns is seated alone, on a stool, in the center of the ring. he tells the audience that every other wrestler took the day off to go to six flags, but roman still came into work because thats what the big dog does. he comes into work because he respects the fans and wants their respect. every other wrestler would rather ride rollercoasters than perform for the wwe universe, but not the big dog.

then he'll introduce replays of some of his matches throughout the years and does a vh1 storytellers kind of thing to explain how he actually is a good wrestler i mean just look at these matches with aj you liked them right? what about when braun flipped that ambulance that was cool right? that'll be the rest of raw.

There are lost episodes of course. Stories that were commissioned but never made. Or made but misfiled, post broadcast. Sheer incompetence, of course.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - if you have to keep shoving it down the viewer's throats and telling them Roman is the guy, he really isn't.

SURPRISE! The WWE doesn't produce Emmy-quality programming.

https://www.pwinsider.com/article/1...ations.html?p=1

quote:

Despite a big push that included hosting a For Your Consideration party last month in Los Angeles and being listed on the preliminary ballots for the first time ever, World Wrestling Entertainment failed to land any official nominations for the 2018 Emmy Awards.

WWE had been on the prelim ballots in the following categories:

Best Documentary or Non-Fiction Special

*WWE 24: Empowered.

*Andre the Giant documentary.

Outstanding Structured Reality Program

*Mixed Match Challenge.

*Monday Night Raw.

Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program:

*Total Bellas.

*Total Divas.

Outstanding Variety Special (live)

*Wrestlemania 34.

Although the company failed to garner any nominations, itís important to note that 2018 was the first time WWE was ever able to get any of their programming to even the preliminary ballot. That had never happened before.

I honestly think that's reasonable early on. I think if there's strong advertising they could bring in some lapsed fans to give it a shot. It won't last cause come on, but that's kind of where I expect them to hang around for the first month.

Sure, but saying negative but factually true things about WWE doesn't necessarily stop them from being petty or cruel. In their eyes they're just fighting back.

What I'm annoyed at is it completely goes against the narrative they tried to tell leading into Wrestlemania about how Brock is "Vince's Boy."

So the plan is for Roman to get cheered over Brock, aka "Vince's Boy", by showing Vince's Boy disregard the Universal title and show up on UFC TV like a disloyal stinkyhole? This makes no loving sense.

It's like he completely loving forgot that his hottest star from his hottest period was Steve Austin, a guy who literally feuded with him and treated him like garbage.

that was when he had competition and also ratings or buyrates or gates or anything really mattered so he had to go against what he really wanted to do

Braun will cash in and Roman will beat Braun next PPV.

I'd rather sell it as Braun is such a monster he formally challenges both from the start or in the middle of the match and pins Brock. Then Roman can pin him later as Vince would do

Raskolnikov38 posted:

Except, as suggested before, Braun cashes in before the title match, beats Brock in 90 seconds with the powerslam, and then beats Roman in a 30 minute 'epic' where the entire building boos the 'babyface'.

THEN Roman loses and spends the next 6 months whining while Cole has to try and sell it as a noble quest.

Also, going back to why the 2K commercial might be better than anything WWE has done with Ronda: It's because 2K (and Snickers and others) want to present the wrestlers as big stars because the point is 'we have a big star, buy our product' and WWE's terrified of actually focusing on stars because Vince is afraid they'll leave, so the spotlight is on 'the brand'. It's not "Come see ROMAN REIGNS, SHINSUKE NAKAMURA and CHARLOTTE FLAIR!", it's "Come see THE WWE SUPERSTARS (like Roman Reigns, Shinsuke Nakamura and Charlotte Flair.)

Vince's plan to get Roman Reigns over is by putting off his title win longer and longer until ALL the frustrated fans leave entirely so when he finally wins that title there's just no reaction at all, instead of an overwhelmingly negative one

Just a heads up on that G1Supercard thing at MSG: I wouldn't expect it to be broadcasted. The rates on MSG are utterly absurd and unless ROH and NJPW plan on cutting half of their roster in order to broadcast it, it'll probably be a house show like thing.

Also it's going up against NXT Takeover, which will likely have an incredibly stacked card to counter ROH.

I'm putting ketchup on steak burgers right now and I gotta say, Vince may be on to something. I'm a big fan of ketchup in general so I may be biased though.

He still retains his crazy old man status since if I had millions of dollars I would be eating so, SO much better than that.
