Undertaker was paired with Brother Love when he first arrived? I get that they
wanted a mouthpiece for the monster heel who doesn’t say much, but why the host
of an interview segment who had never managed anyone before or shown any
inclination towards it? Jimmy Hart, Bobby Heenan and Slick were all still with
the company, why not one of them? Not that any of them fit well with Undertaker
either, but that’s why Paul Bearer eventually got the
Hey Scott,Do you find it at all strange that Enzo got basically ZERO sympathy for losing his job based on a rape allegation made by a SELF-ADMITTED crazy person that was almost certainly a lie? I mean everyone basically went, “Pfft, serves him right for not informing WWE higher-ups who are constantly sending mixed messages and demoting/firing people for the most insane reasons possible.”I mean, I get it that the guy is an ass in real life but, jeez.ᐧ
Excellent work on the Blog, always worth reading.
Last year I went to a bar in London that was hosting a WrestleMania party, so about 200 or so grapple fans in together to watch the granddaddy of 'em all. Now, this is in the U.K., so the pre-show starts at about
10pm and the show goes on until about 5am. Towards the end of the show, notably during Reigns vs Taker, some people were starting to doze off, and the bouncers of the nightclub were actually threatening to throw people out for being asleep. Now, throwing
out sleepers is standard bouncer behavior, but don't you think WWE should give some consideration to their international audiences? If a man gets thrown out of a bar for falling asleep during a Taker match at 4.30am (and I could think of nothing that would
more reasonably send a man to sleep) and he then has literally nowhere else to go at that ungodly hour, shouldn't WWE be answerable in some way to this? They just don't think of the man on the street when they're engaging in such self-indulgent show running
times!! I would love to go to a WrestleMania party at this bar again this year, but have legitimate worry of being thrown out because WWE's never-ending show is putting me off. What would you do??
What was the reasoning trying to compete with RAW?
Hey Scott –
I haven’t been watching some old 80s wrestling commercials on Instagram and YouTube that have popped up and I was noticing that Hogan is not in a lot of them you see a lot of upper mid card guys JYD, Steamboat, Volkoff, Skeik even Piper.
Was this on purpose to make Hulk feel like he was the “superstar”?
