Imagine having twin towers, brain busters and Dibiase vs megapowers, rockers and Hercules. Warrior, beefcake, hart foundation, blue blazer vs honky, bass, Valentine, Davis, bad news. Jake, Duggan, powers of pain, Tito vs Andre, Rude, perfect and demolition.
The beauty of the multi man matches is that you can have an intricate and long match
Also, I think one issue with today is that you obviously see the same match a million times. I personally would do these multi man matches a lot more . It eats up time and you can even test out new feuds.
Important question, watching some nitro in the network, whatever happened to Horace Hogan?
Every Hogan hanger on got some gig with the Hulkster after WCW folded except his own nephew. What gives?
He wasn’t a complete f-up in the ring and you’d think the name alone would spark some interest in him but according to his wiki page he pretty much jacked it in after a short stint in wwe developmental in 02, I’d think he’d dine off the association for years
Last year he was publicly scapegoated for all the problems. The follow up was PPV wins over Strowman, a main event 6-man vs The Shield, retiring Angle at WM, a LOOONG main event title feud with Rollins and now he’s the KOTR with another goober stable with Roode and Ziggler.
They’ve tried. They book him strong and he’s a hateable heel, but ratings are ratings and people turn off when’s he’s featured. What will it take for Vince to realize Corbin just isn’t the guy.
18-49 year old males see BC and leap off the television. That’s indisputable.
(Dammit, this is what happens when I post these from my phone…)
1. Rewatching 2000 programing on the network was a nice reminder of just how over they were for the first half of 2000. What got them so over? The dancing? Did they have a big “moment” of sorts that got them as over as they were?
2. The crowds were going nuts for them. Did the WWE utilize them properly at that time or do you think there was more they could have done with them all?
3. The Rikishi heel turn in late 2000 – terrible idea correct?
For the NXT people who are wrestling at Takeover: War Games and then Survivor Series the next night, how is that going to work exactly?
Will this hamper the show making them extra safe in the Wargames matches so as not to ruin their participation the next night?
Or do they just put in a half ass effort as part of a multi person match with 14 other people in it at Survivor Series?
I’m thinking they’re going to have some emergency backups on hand ready to go.
Either way, this has got to be tough on the NXT roster.
