WWE Creative vs. WWE Universe

Is it just me or is the most interesting feud right now taking place between Creative & the fans over Daniel Bryan?

The WWE has basically gone out of its way since the moment Bryan beat Cena to bury the guy. Orton, Triple H, The Authority, a B+ player, Big Show stealing his catchphrase, screwjobs and now joining the Wyatt family. Yet fans keep chanting for Bryan and he remains the most over guy in the company.

So what's the payoff? I'd book Undertaker vs. Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania.



Interesting you should ask, because I was just reading this:
It's really becoming a battle of attrition between Creative and the fans, with the fanbase actively rejecting everything non-Bryan in the main events.  I think what he really needs is someone like Undertaker to step up and champion him once and for all.  If Taker came forward and told Vince that he wanted Bryan to end the streak, Vince would know it's time to stop fucking around.  Not that ending the streak would be a good idea, but it would certainly send a message.  
My favorite comparison for bad storylines is always Steve Austin.  Do you think Steve Austin would put up with someone booking him to join the Wyatt Family as a garbageman?  He'd rip the script up and tell the writers to go fuck themselves.  Granted Bryan isn't in the position to do that, but there are people around who ARE in that position, and someone needs to say it.  

WWE2K14 – A Patch for the Creative Suite

First off, this only really applies to gamers.

So, hopefully some of you have seen the incredible work that goes in to the community creations from WWE ’12/’13.

Unfortunately, THQ/2K have removed some parts of the Creative Suite that make it incredibly difficult to duplicate some of these creations, that take days, sometimes even weeks.

I set up this petition (and before people say ‘these never work’ – they didn’t work with THQ. This is 2K) last night at 6pm (GMT), and it already had over 200 signatures by the morning.

Even if you just have a passing interest in WWE gaming, please take 30 seconds of your time to ‘sign’ this petition.

I’m sure the online community would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks, everyone!

Creative Control

Scott,
For years there has been talk of Hogan (and others’) “creative control” clauses.  How exactly are these structured?  Obviously he was allowed to veto doing jobs, but have you seen the language of these contracts?  How much ‘control’ does the performer really have?  If Bischoff was to have said, “Hulk, you’re tapping clean to Sting’s Deathlock at Starrcade ’97”, what is it specifically that allows Hogan to veto that?  Is it in his contract or just an instance of Bischoff thinking it’s more trouble than it’s worth to argue about?  Is it the same idea with Vince re: Hart-Hogan in ’93?
In the same vein, how did Hogan have the ‘creative control’ to put himself over Yokozuna at Wrestlemania 9?  Shawn Michaels refusing to drop the title?  Bret vetoing the Montreal job?

Bret Hart week continues here at the blog!With Hogan’s WCW contract, he pretty much had the final say-so over anything he was going to be asked to do.  Like, they literally couldn’t even get him to come on TV and wave to the crowd without getting his approval.  So did Flair during his Crockett heyday (although not to the same crazy degree), which is one reason why Jim Herd wanted to get rid of him so badly or at least restructure the contract.  Hence the neverending Flair-Dusty war where Dusty would book Luger to go over and Flair would veto it.  With WM9 I don’t think that was Hogan’s creative control so much as Vince deciding it would be a good idea.  Shawn definitely didn’t have that kind of contract, he was just a dick and faked a knee injury, although by his 2002 comeback he might have learned from Bret and upgraded his contract, I don’t know.  And Bret absolutely could say no to doing a job, although I would like to point out that he was never ASKED to do a job to Shawn Michaels.  People on the anti-Bret side act like someone came to him and told him to lay down and he said no, but that never happened.  Vince told him that they’d do a DQ finish, and then screwed him out of the title.
