Is Anyone Still Watching? (TWIW 5-20-2013 to 5-26-2013)
« on: May 20, 2013, 08:44:37 AM »
Extreme Rules happened.

RAW announced a social media ambassador do tonight.  The least popular Jonas brother.  At least three years since they were relevant. To an audience that never cared for WWE.

Oh and Heyman is teasing we meet the third Paul Heyman guy tonight.

Only one I remember rumored before was Cesaro but they change direction with him weekly.

I think he can still go.  You could REALLY tell his "give a damn" was at a very low level toward the end of his run though.  They're gonna have to make him a face though.  I doubt they could get a crowd to boo him.

Brock eventually caught on though. This dude's been on the main roster for 3 years and all anyone remembers is that horrendous  promo he cut on NXT.

Yes. It is.

This Curt Axel thing, being pieces of his relative's name... I mean, sort of worked for Rock.

Shit, let's see how it goes.

This works fantastic if MaGillicutty has his ass beat by HHH and then Heyman is saved by RVD and it's all a huge swerve.

Paul Heyman is officially terrible at surprises. Taking into account the fact that his big shock stipulation for the Brock/HHH match at WrestleMania was a No-Holds-Barred match -- coupled with his surprise tonight that his new mystery client is Michael McGillicutty -- Heyman has been written to be the worst surprise-announcement figure in the business.

As long as Dixie Carter is in charge of TNA, Heyman is at best number 2 in that category.

Hennig has actually gotten really good in the ring IMO.  He's intense and comes across like a methodical ass kicker.  I've wanted to see him get a push for a while now.  This could totally work.

That name though wtf.  Just call him Joe Hennig.

The reveal was hilarious and super underwhelming, but yeah, he has improved a lot. He was starting to get really over in the NXT building too. And hardly anyone gets a solid reaction on that show. 

And shout out to Layla tapping out like that haha.

He has gotten better in the ring and on the mic but he has still been active doing meaningless things.  He just jobbed on Superstars the other night to Sin Cara in minutes.  Not that anyone watches... But still...

I like him but we will see.  This could be like when Bradshaw became JBL but they did push guys better than they do currently
