Do you think there's any shot that CM Punk changing his hair and facial hair seemingly every week back when he was in WWE didn't help his cause? I mean couldn't they have logically said they were having a hard time marketing him or putting him on a poster since he was constantly changing his look? I get reinventing yourself and changing appearances once in a while but he did it way too much in his short time there.
Remember the awesome original, short lived format of Shotgun Saturday Night? They have all the resources to mimic that exact look and feel of that. If your readers may not know, the original format took place live in NYC nightclubs and looked unlike anything the company ever produced. The opening video of the show also featured the "American Bad Ass" character of the Undertaker well over 3 years before it ever debuted on RAW. However, they quickly scrapped the format because of costs and ran the tired, old taping before RAW crap instead.
This would obviously be on the premium tier of the WWE Network. Turn Full Sail into a nightclub atmosphere, complete with fans sitting at tables and a bar setup. No LED video walls, no highly produced entrance music. The color commentators sit on bar stools at ringside. Scantily clad dancers in the background. Vulgar language, edgy adult storylines. Super hot chick as one of the commentators like Sunny on the original Shotgun Saturday Night. Do things completely different.
I'd be willing to bet this show would consistently be the most viewed show on the network by a mile. It'd be huge for them.
Has the WWE ever tried to trademark wrestlers move names? For example, I've heard announcers from other wrestling companies refer to a "Tombstone- Piledriver" or a "Pedigree" Kind of weird that they haven't seeing as they do with names and characters. Any idea?
Just a brief look at some Heenan moments that never fail to bring a smile to my face
Do you think at the time Vince wishes he had someone else win that Rumble? Seems like a wasted opportunity to push someone to the main event?
wrestling/impact-wrestling-no- longer-using-gfw-name/(Per PWInsider)How the hell is this company still in business?And what will they do with all the shotty new GFW belts they made?
Do you happen to know if there has ever been cases of TNA/GFW, ROH, New Japan, etc. holding a grudge against a departing wrestler that was WWE bound? I.E.-"If you end up failing there, don't look to come back here when it's over." I know in the past Vince has done this when talent left the WWE for another wrestling company, but has the reverse ever happened? Thanks again.
Reigns and Strowman Lesnar on a B show this year. If No Mercy is a B show, is it the king of them?
I think that would be Money in the Bank or Hell in a Cell, since people actually remembered those shows most years.
If Terry Taylor embraced being a rooster like Mike Perry did, do you think he would have gotten over?
days) they would always job for their last match.
1. I'm not familiar with Junkyard Dog at all outside of his mid-late 80's WWF run. I have however read and I think I remember you saying before that he was a huge draw (for Bill Watts?)………can you elaborate more – when was he over, what got him over, and who'd he draw $ against?
2. I know how much you love the Flair/Sting angle from Halloween havoc 95 and rightfully so. My question is this – should there have been a better blowoff for it? I know Sting beat Flair at the next ppv but it seems looking back that maybe they could have gotten more out of the awesome Flair double cross???
3. What's the best example that jumps out to you if someone getting a big push based off of 1 match. In other words wrestler x went out and had an amazing match with someone and after the match they were viewed in a completely different light.
