I think Ember's just another victim of WWE's stilled scripted face promos, very few people on the roster can pull them off well.

And not having Dusty Rhodes helping her

It's absolutely repugnant that the Saudi Government killed this journalist, the only just punishment is that we keep sending them WWE shows. And they have to stay in their seats the whole time.

I'm curious how HBK is going to present his glistening scalp at Crown Jewel. Is he going to keep wearing that stupid head wrap thing during the entire match, or is he going to go full glory?

Was there even a clear camera shot of it? I just remember extremely lovely camera cuts, probably because the finisher was so drat dumb.

Don't get my name wrong,
If you want to touch me there.

How much of Ember Moon's problems on the mic/character issues are her fault and how much is it WWE fuckery?

I ask because on upupdowndown, and the WWE Game Night things I have seen her on she seems fun and cool and charismatic. So if you add that to a competent wrestler, she should be great.

I once watched, I think it was a year end episode of NXT, and it had a video package about Ember Moon and it was super good and made her come off as super likable. She's stilted in her promos, even in NXT, but she's one of those people who's just magnetic in the ring and makes you care about what she's doing, like Cesaro.

She might be a bad talker, but she's got charisma.

oh yeah don't get me wrong, i like ember, and like cesaro she has the magic ability to get a crowd super into whatever she's doing in just any random match. and part of that is her physical charisma, which she has in spades. she's just not much of an actress.

I think it tracks based on other info, too. I signed up for another trial last night but didn't take until I put in a different address/phone number, so it's looking for more than just email address.

In other news, NXT UK is finally on. Wednesdays at 8pm BST (so 3PM EST, I think) starting October 17.

yeah i'm not sure why they are putting all these old guys on the card for a show especially made for a 33 year old attitude era mark billionaire instead of Killian Dain and Buddy Murphy.

I dunno about Attitude Era, the prince requested Yokozuna. I'm going to say Doink the Clown, IRS, and Diesel are more down his alley. Even Goldust might be too new for him.

On that note, this is everyone's routine reminder that yes, Goldust and Rhyno are still active WWE superstars approaching 2019.

No because people in our mainstream media liking the Saudi prince isn't just restricted to the WWE.

With Ember's in ring talent and charisma outside of WWE promos there's obviously a way to make her character work. But we'll never get it.
