Isn't that basically the same thing? Two family type stories in wrestling between guys who weren't actually related.
This whole “World Cup” tournament thingamajig is supposedly to determine the “best in the world.” WWE has really doubled down on that phrase – the commentary teams couldn’t go five minutes without using it this past week. Now it’s common knowledge that “best in the world” was CM Punk’s gimmick. It’s also been apparent that the Saudis – remember, this whole World Cup concept was designed for these new international super oil money house shows on the Network – are much more interested in older stars than the current product. And that all that oil money has lured some back to the ring *cough Shawn cough*. Sooo…could this “best in the world” tournament be a reveal that a truckload of Saudi oil/blood money has bought peace between CM Punk and Vince McMahon/Triple H?

hilarious, as it exposes Meltzer, Keller, Alvarez and the rest for what
they really are.
There's a 'Best of Year 1' up now. But at FOUR HOURS, I doubt anyone can
do it in one listen.
I can't believe I once took what Metlzer and co. said seriously.
Just saw the UK show… bleh. Dunne is a very cool added, mid card attraction a la Eddie guerrero/Chris Benoit 1995. I'm not sure why someone like him needs an entire "brand" centered around him at this point in his development. Nothing says "big time house drawing main event" like: pete dunne vs. The guy who actually made alicia fox interesting for 90 days on tv minus the freaking gimmick. That was every indy style main event ever for the past 7 years they just did.
Steph announced Evolution on 7/23. It’s 10/17 and there are THREE main show matches announced, plus a battle royal… the ultimate in lazy “get everyone on the card” booking. Not too mention this is the THIRD battle royal for women this year after Rumble and WM. The Bellas werent even on TV when this ppv was announced and now Nikki is main eventing!
They have the NXT and MYC matches but still the main roster women are essentially afterthoughts. Why not do a women’s World Cup? Or inaugural tag title tournament?
This plus the Saudi bloody money ppv are just piling on the shit for WWE.
Not sure if this has ever been touched on.
What came first. The Hogan/Andre angle or deciding you book the silverdome?
If it was booking the Venue. Hypothetically, if Andre could wrestle for any reason. Is there another match that could have filled that building at the time?
Wwf was in their own successful little bubble that I don’t think bringing in Flair or Nikita would have worked.
Piper? Orndorf? What say you?
They were waiting for the bad press to blow over and it keeps getting badder for them.
So according to Rocky canon Ivan Drago did win the Heavyweight title and retire undefeated, (as a pro. His match with Rocky was, of course, an exhibition,) but whatever happened to Clubber Lang? As champion wouldn't he have been entitled to a rematch and wouldn't
the Rocky/Clubber rubber match have made all the millions?
For that matter what about Tommy "the machine" Gunn? I mean he was still champion even though Rocky beat him up.
He’d probably never go for it, but maybe HHH and Stephanie could just announce it on Raw without telling him and then he has to do it.
Gotta be better than trusting Sid to be the headliner and risking him bailing for an April softball game, right?
