TWIW 2/4/19 - 2/10/19 - Win a Rumble, Go Out Injured
« on: February 04, 2019, 04:49:14 AM »
Rollins is expected to be doing only promos for the next month as he has an injury that is preventing him from working for at least a month.

There’s also word that Becky’s knee is legitimately injured too.

Starting new weekly thread.  Heard the video linked in this tweet is really good but haven’t gotten to watch yet.

Elijah Burke runs local shows here. This month he brought the Headbangers in for a show. At a baptist church.

The first rumored Hall of Fame leak is... weird...

Rumor is the original Hart Foundation trio getting inducted.  So rather than just putting in Neidhart, Bret and Jimmy Hart will go in a second time

they want people there to talk i guess?


the injury news from meltzers update in full btw:
-Seth Rollins is currently dealing with an injury that went down before the Brock Lesnar attack this past Monday. It is reported that he will be off house shows for the time being and won’t be used on Raw this Monday. He is also expected to only do promos with no physicality for the next month.
-Sasha Banks wasn’t cleared after her match against Ronda Rousey at the Royal Rumble, but is expected to be cleared before Raw tomorrow.
-AJ Styles is “dinged up”, but should be cleared by Tuesday.
-Becky Lynch is selling the storyline knee injury from the Royal Rumble and is off house shows for the time being. It is reported that it’s an angle that will be played out on this week’s television.

the burial of elias was brutal. didn't like the booking of the ronda stuff either. The becky/steph segment was great though and made becky look fantastic. The bayley/sasha stuff has no interest for me. Kurt looked really good in his match and i'm glad they're using braun with him as he needs rehabbing badly. Not a very good raw but with the help of chat it went by fast.

The Elias thing baffles me. He was doing fine as a face, and they just pull the plug out of nowhere...for a feud with Jeff Jarrett? In 2019? As a one-time spot in the Rumble, sure. But this is just weird.

909 told me (i dont know what his source was) that wwe doesn't think elias is charismatic and that's part of what happened here. if that's accurate it's totally insane.

I mean, even if that was true, why feed him to Double J? The guy's been a featured performer pretty much since he debuted on the main roster. They couldn't use the little rub he had and elevate, like, a Kalisto?

Listening to Rusev on Lilian's podcast.. what a shitshow of a company to work for. Like we already know that.. but to hear a guy who had gotten himself over to massive levels two times say that he has "no idea" what they are now or why the company killed Rusev Day, is just astounding.. seriously fuck every person involved in the creative direction of that company. They deserve every shitty smark crowd hijack that they get.

So I'm presuming the Becky storyline suspension opens up Charlotte getting into that match? I wonder if they are going to do a clear heel turn for Charlotte as well, aligning with Steph against Ronda and Becky. I am not really into that scenario as there is so much $$$ and chemistry on point with just doing a Becky/Ronda singles at Mania instead. But I get it...they dont want to job out Rousey yet. Just irritates me that they can't book the match people really wanna see and then they push a triple threat instead. But I get Charlotte had obviously a huge role in getting the women to where they are now but damn....

To boot, I fully expect Steph to try to get her own shine of sorts by having her being special ref for that match. Ughhhhh

Rest of the show had its ups and downs. The finish of the main was a bit WTF to say the least.

The EC3 stuff was......interesting. So you put Jax out there to run her mouth on him. Why? I'm really tired of this Jax characterization they are going with her, it reeks of Xpac heat to me. Especially knowing she continues to stiffen workers. Or are we going into quasi-worked shoot stuff now with her, as I wonder if the Truth thing at the Rumble was a worked storyline they tried pushing as a legit thing? Who knows. All I know is I'm tired of seeing her on TV pushed like she is. She gives the impression after all this time that she still really is playing a pro wrestler and really isn't wanting to be one.

The argument I’ve read on the three way isn’t jobbing out Rousey, they want to elevate more female talent by saying they were the first females to Main Event WrestleMania.  There was some report I read stating Vince wanted just Becky-Ronda but several members of creative pushed with Ronda a short-timer, it benefits the company to give rub to two full-time performers and makes them “legends”.  Out of all the current women, I’d say Charlotte and Alexa Bliss are already legends/Hall of Famers based on their accolades so quickly but that’s the company line I read reported somewhere.

That's still a bullshit reasoning. Becky 1v1 with Ronda at WM and winning makes her for life and then anybody she works with after is elevated because they worked with a top star. STOP OVERTHINKING THINGS.

Maybe the real deep state was the friends we made along the way.

i liked the segment over all but man hhh has to talk fucking forever. He could have cut that by a third and it would have been x10 more effective. He just meanders on and on hitting the same points over and over in different ways. That's not an effective promo. Hit your points strong and hard before people get bored and get out.

I know the tendency of the WWE is to go all out with, "it's funny, it's funny, it's not funny anymore, this joke is dead, stop beating the dead horse, what the fuck are y'all doing!?" with some tropes so I really hope this whole EC3 keeps getting interrupted thing dies by the first Raw of March.

I'll give them fucking February.

Kris Wolf is retiring due to concussion issues. :(

http://www.prowrestlingsheet.com/kris-wolf-retiring-wrestling/

Quote
Popular independent wrestler Kris Wolf has announced she’ll soon be retiring from professional wrestling due to concussion-related symptoms.


“I wanted to let you guys know that this is going to be my last tour,” Wolf informed viewers on a special Monday edition of her weekly livestream.

“I’ve had some sh*tty symptoms of my concussion stuff come up,” she continued. “I think now would be a good time to peace out before I completely lose my mind.”

Wolf went on to explain that she has been suffering from various symptoms, such as blackouts and memory loss, related to concussions she’s suffered throughout her career.

“My heart wants to take care of my head,” Wolf said, during the livestream. “Concussions suck. And the thing that is scary is that 40 years later your personality may have been well affected by the concussions, and you don’t realize it.”

For those unfamiliar … Kris has wrestled for companies such as Stardom in Japan, Ring of Honor, Pro Wrestling EVE and WXW.

Wolf says her final show will likely be in the UK.

Watch the announcement below.

Bellemo being a non jobber confounds me each time he comes up on the old house show cards I watch. He had no body to the point that he paunchy and had no discernable muscle tone, spoke broken english, wore horrible gear and was awkward in the ring.  I'd blame it on the ethnic babyfaces in NY thing, but he was pushed on TV in 1984 at least as he got time on TNT. 

Ummm...but RIP....

Edit - If they wanted an Italian type babyface, Paul Roma was there by 1985 and it took him 2 years to escape his role as a "wimpy guy" as 1985 Brody would phrase it.

My guess is that the match gets the whole second hour.  Last year's got a hour and a half on Raw but I doubt that's feasible on a 2 hour show with a ppv five days away
