CM Punk Chants

This came up in the comment section:


1) What are your thoughts on them in general?

2) Do you feel having them during AJ Lee's return is a setback for #GiveDivasAChance?

1. Given that he now has a contract with UFC, it seems like a futile gesture on the crowds' part.  

2.  If giving Divas a chance means more Bellas, I hope no one does.  

WWE to Fire AJ Lee Due To Constant CM Punk Chants?

Found this on the front page of Yahoo. I have no idea how credible this report is but a source has reportedly told the Epoch Times that the WWE is considering letting AJ go, hinting that she is to blame for all of the Punk chants and that she is basically not good enough through her ability and that she is easily replaceable. Anyway, I provided the link to the article below.

What do you guys think?

RR # for Bryan Chants?

Dear Scott,

Favorite blog topic again:  Assuming Daniel Bryan isn't kidnapped again (or in some way clearly incapacitated for the Rumble) by the Wyatts during his singles match, at what number in the Rumble will the crowd begin loudly chanting for Bryan to be the next entrant?  My guess is 25.

I feel a Simpsons quote coming on…
" I've been scorched by Krusty before. I got a rapid heartbeat from his Krusty brand vitamins, my Krusty Kalculator didn't have a seven or an eight, and Krusty's autobiography was self-serving with many glaring omissions. But this time, he's gone too far!  WE WANT KRUSTY!  WE WANT KRUSTY!"
Krusty's not coming, guys.  HHH is Mr. Black and he's here to break your spirits.  

“HUSKY HARRIS!” chants at Bray Wyatt question

Hey, Mr. Keith, I enjoy your blog and the interaction on there is a lot of fun to read over, too. I did notice something on there, though, when it came to people reacting to the Husky Harris chants that Bray Wyatt was getting. I find it strange that everyone got all angry at those chants, but it's seemingly okay that the crowd did the same things to Orton and Big Show the night after Mania. Why's it okay during a match like that as opposed to Bray Wyatt? 

To me, I don't find that much of a difference. I know people have high hopes for Wyatt, and I think that's why people are more upset, but I find it hypocritical to think it's okay for a crowd to get themselves over in one match, but not okay for something else like that.

Because although smart mark etiquette has fallen by the wayside over the years, there used to be a very distinct hierarchy of smart-ass fans until the internet broke down the barriers for good.  And the worst kind of people, like the ones who make us embarrassed to be fans, have always been the idiots who sit in the front row and yell real names or former gimmicks at guys like a kid who's just found a new toy.  For anyone who's either been online for more than a month or had a subscription to the Observer, it's like "OK, you know he used to have a different name, very good then".  If you're going to a show, cheer or boo who you want and chant announcer's names if you want, or sing along with Fandango's music ironically, whatever, but don't ruin it for everyone else by deliberately trying to break the fourth wall.  WWE ruins things that way enough by themselves.  But maybe that's just me.  

No Rocky/Rocky Sucks Chants

Maybe Punk/Taker and the weather cooled it a little, but I find it very interesting that there was never a Rocky chant during the main event….a lot of let’s go Cena/Cena sucks…should Vince be happy that his current star is getting the reaction, or should he be pissed that he paid so much for the Rock to play out a predictable storyline? 

Apparently Rock got booed by the Jersey crowd at RAW every time he was shown or mentioned, as well.  I think people just kind of saw through what Rock was doing this time around and didn't want to get behind him too strongly.
