So, think the fight will still happen?
I am a huge Luger fan. Always felt he was a bit under appreciated. He was in TWO of my all time favorite tag matches (Luger/Windham vs Arn/Tully, Luger/Sting vs Steiners) was a GOD to me in 1989, and found his tweaner schtick with Jimmy Hart in late '95/early '96 to be just gold.
Anyhow I'm watching various Luger title wins on youtube (and why he never held every title at once is a crime) and it occurs to me
Does ANYONE in the history of pro wrestling do a title celebration quite like Luger? The guy seriously makes like every title win seems like the biggest deal ever. Even the U.S. title.
Little things like that just really seem to be missing from today's world of wrestling.
Long-time reader with a question for ya. I followed your instructions to sign up for the Network and all has been working tickety-boo. However, there's been a problem the last couple days….I have suddenly started getting the message "WWE Network video content is currently not available for viewing at this location". I checked Unblock and it looks like everything is all good. I figure that the helpdesk won't be much good once they find out that I'm not really from Montana.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
> Hey Scott, to celebrate the launch of the WWE network next week, how about a quick list of the essential ppvs newer fans should view 1st.
> Also, would love for u to redo rants of WM 17 and GAB 89 to decide which is the greatest PPV of all time.
I personally will be watching the full version of Bash 89 as soon as I can, but WWE already put a pretty good list of essential PPVs up a little while ago. I suspect that with all the filler edited back into the Bash, WM X7 will win handily.
Assuming the WWE is going to try and damage control shit best they can, for the backlash they are facing, why don't they just fucking unsplit the belts?
Bryan wins at EC, even after Sheamus tries to backstab him for HHH and wins the belt. HHH then pulls some bullshit, tries to strip Bryan of the belts again but Vince FINALLY shows up and stops HHH and orders HHH/Bryan at WM for the belt and HHH's job is on the line if he loses (which he does).
Meanwhile, Bryan, in terms of mind games, decides to torment HHH by tossing HHH's infamous vanity belt (the Smackdown title) into the river and reminding the world how HHH is a spoiled brat who had everything handed to him, even the world title. HHH goes batshit insane with anger and rage and orders a new Smackdown title made and Orton/Batista end up fighting for that belt at WM, after Batista gets pissy that Vince has overruled him getting a title shot at WM in order to use Bryan to get rid of Hunter
Bryan wins against Hunter, retiring him, and give us twenty good minutes (after about five/ten minutes of the crowd chanting YES after Bryan's victory) being given the utter burial treatment in backstage skits (complete with hiring Jericho back for the night or at the very least, having Edge and Christian be the ones ringleadering HHH and Stephanie being put through torment and humilation as they are forced out of the arena and into a garbage truck, never to be seen again) during the middle of the show. And Batista then can win the Smackdown title in the main event, be exclusive to Smackdown, and they can use Batista isolated over there to cover up in post production how much people don't like him compared to Bryan.
Thought you and the BOD would appreciate this: Harvard Business Review and a love letter to WWE storytelling:As to their conclusion , if the phrase “hijacking the show” becomes a thing, then you’re doing a shitty job of listening to the fanbase.

New Star Wars movie release date December 18, 2015. Getting in line now.
Wondering what feuds and/or matches you think would’ve been really fun if circumstances were just slightly different.
Say Austin had one more year left, maybe we get that run vs Lesnar. Foley makes it to 2001 and perhaps some matches with anyone in the Radicalz or Kurt Angle.
Any fun ones jump out for you guys?

Surely this is not a coincidence.
> With ROH possibly folding in the next couple of years, could u see Trips going after their library??
WWE will own everything available when all is said and done, so of course. The money from one DVD release that does reasonably well pays for the minimal cost of the entire library.
Speaking of DVDs, I was checking out the MSG listing, and what a huge disappointment that one is. Shawn v Razor AGAIN? Only 4 pre-Hogan matches? What nostalgic fans are buying this thing for The Hardy Boyz v The Dudley Boyz in 2000?

Huge fan and I'm loving the eBook collections. Please keep them coming. I have a question for you about cena. Obviously he's not that popular amongst the iwc for a variety of reasons. However it seems silly for wrestling work rate fans to dislike him. He's had an unbelievable amount of 4 star plus matches with a extremely wide variety of opponents over the last 10 years. Where would you rank cena amongst the all time best workers in the business.
I've got no beef with Cena the wrestler or Cena the person. He has great matches and he's one of the most positive role models in wrestling history. It's 100% the dorky character that's the issue with him. He almost always delivers in big matches and can be carried to greatness. He doesn't even rate with the all time best WORKERS, though, because he doesn't work other styles very well and needs someone better than him to get past *** or so. The Henry match was about his ceiling these days when he's with a lower level worker. I'd put him on par with Batista or later era HHH…smart enough to work around their own limitations but not good enough to fake a ****+ match out of them.
