Developmental of course has held the record for bad names lately, although to be fair they're more horribly generic than BAD, per se. Kwee Wee was absolutely awful, one of the worst. I think the worst by a country mile was WEE WILLIE WILKINS, but that was more of a specific rib by Dusty Rhodes rather than any kind of attempt at seriously naming someone. And I know others are not on my side on this one, but I always hated "X-Pac" as a name. Never worked for me and didn't really represent anything about the character.

It's a cold winter, WWE kind of sucks right now – let's see if we can funnel that negativity into something fun.
The most unwatchable wrestling match I've ever seen is Beverly Brothers vs. Bushwhackers at the 1992 Royal Rumble.
Also, you can now get poutine Mexi-fries up here at Taco Time. It's delicious, of course.
I personally have seen Rock v. Hogan a TON of times, oddly enough. Other contenders would be Savage v. Steamboat, Raven/Richards v. Pitbulls, the entire Barely Legal and N2R95 shows (dubbing those over and OVER for tape trades) and indeed Warrior v. Hogan.
While revisiting the Mega Powers angle in your SNME re-rants, where you would rank that in the "best angles ever" debate. It started in October 87 on SNME and if you end it at WM5 it's till nearly a year and a half of perfect slow burn. It elevated Savage to full time main eventer forever and drew shit loads of money. I'm born in 82 and grew up a WWF fan. For my money, that was the best ever. Austin/Hart Foundation 97, Austin/McMahon 98, and the NWO are up there too in my opinion.
Certainly it was the biggest money drawing angle ever for a single match. Creatively as well I'd have no problem putting it up there. It was the kind of year long planning they just don't do anymore.
Who knows if he will or not but Punk said this on a red carpet interview for the AP Music Awards.
Let the speculation begin
Here’s an interesting one that I came across, a list of the most overrated video games of all time, done by voting, rather than just some guy doing a 411/Bleacher Report top ten list:
For those not wanting to click on the link (it’s not in slideshow view), here’s the top 10:
1. Call of Duty
3. World of Warcraft
4. Angry Birds
6. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarnia of Time
7. Halo 3
8. Grand Theft Auto 4
9. Final Fantasy X
10. TNA Impact (what?)
I would have put #6 and #8 at #1 and #2, respectively, and I can’t argue that any of the top 9 should be bounced, but TNA Impact at #10? I’ll admit I’ve never played it, but from everything I’ve heard it’s nothing special, I don’t recall people raving about it at the time.
Anyway, the link actually contains the top 100, and there’s some surprising picks on there. If nothing else, this is way more interesting than talking about soccer.
Charlotte has to be the greatest wrestler that the NXT developmental
program has ever developed completely from scratch. Does anybody
else, male or female, even come close?
This guy is a little more optimistic about wwe.
Mostly the same stuff, but still interesting.
All the clashes going up in the network made me wonder about something. Obviously most all time great matches took place on a ppv but with so many more eyes on a match when its aired on TV, it seems like that makes great free TV matches even more special. What would you say is the best one ever? Sting vs Flair? Cena vs Punk? The raw 10 man tag? DBS vs Owen? The Benoit vs Hart Owen tribute? Hbk and Austin vs Owen and Davey? There are so many to choose from but what's your favorite and do you think a great match on free TV is a bigger deal than a great ppv match? Thanks!
