Heel Heat: Where is the line? by DJ Gabriel - Tue, 26 May 2015 23:31:17 EST ID:BlrIoG3o No.4566861 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Do you think there's a limit to things a heel could do for heat? If so, why?

Do you think a heel who revels in bigotry or discrimination is crossing a decency line?
Imagine an indy setting; there's no need to worry about TV sponsors. If you had a white heel targeting a black babyface - do you think there's crossing a line into gratuitous territory?

Or do you think wrestling heat should be allowed to go wherever; that it's a completely interpretive medium -- and if someone is a capable enough performer to pull off a character or promo, it should be fair game?

I want to see another fucked up heel at some point. They don't care who they offend and if mainstream news gets a hold of it then they revel in that. Let them be racist as fuck for all I care.

http://dailywrestlingnews.com/triple-h-working-possible-push-plans-two-wwe-superstars/

>The tag team of Tyson Kidd and Cesaro may be splitting up later this year but it could be best for business, literally. Triple H has reportedly been trying to get Vince McMahon to open his mind to the fact that Kidd and Cesaro are so good and over enough that they should be pushed as singles wrestlers by the end of the summer.

>This could mean that Kidd is going for a secondary title but it would still be a singles push. Regarding Cesaro, talk for over a year has been that it’s “now or never” with him but he’s still well-liked backstage and it could be the right time to run with a big babyface push for Cesaro.

Anyway, I'm not a fan of angles and gimmicks that skirt racial issues because they tend to be insensitive or at least provoke averse reactions in shitty crowds. Like the Gangstas in SMW -- there were things to like about SMW, but the only black guys in the fed being a stable created to provoke racial anger in the audience was shit.

Especially since the Nation of Domination had a presence in SMW. They were represented by Tracy Smothers, PG-13, and Phantasio.

90s post-Territories indy wrestling is a weird beast. I'm not sure if it was that shocking because 80s wrestling is a lot less tame than you'd think. There was always shit like a white heel attacking a black babyface with whips and chains, or Lawler calling people fags. There was also an awesome worked shoot angle involving Lawler and some black wrestler I can't remember, and EMLL had a KKK stable aswell as Talibans.

So I haven't watched indie wrestling for like 5 years now. I used to watch it like crazy. Back in 2010, the big 5 promotions arguably were ROH, PWG, CHIKARA, DGUSA and CZW.

I'm really out of the loop now. Which promotions are really hot right now? Is it really as good as it used to be? I became uninterested around the time ROH's logo changed in like 2011. That seemed to be the same time that a lot of indie stars started getting hired by WWE. I kind of want to get back into it at some point. I look at 2005-2010 to be a golden era for indies. I'm not sure if it's just my nostalgia goggles or if there's any truth to that.

I keep hearing about Beyond Wrestling. Last I really researched them, they seemed like they only did shows in front of wrestlers, but that seems to have changed. I also hear about AIW, which I remember hearing about around 2010 when Danielson faced Johnny Gargano. Does AIW and Beyond have storylines or is it just supercards like PWG has?

Good thing about the indies is that by it's nature when there's a gap the fans will champion someone to take that spot, but they've really been decimated over the last few years with indy guys. Adam Cole is 25 and arguably the best all round out there alongside Ricochet (IMO obviously) and these guys seem way too young to be at the top, maybe that's just me.

Thankfully we still have the Bucks to make houses and run the indies.

Yup, but the DGUSA titles still exist. However, Gabe put both the EVOLVE and Freedom Gate titles on Galloway, who defends them at the same time (sometimes he defends both and the ICW title in the same match) so they're pretty much all but unified.

I'll give a few pointers here and there. The Young Bucks are king, everything they touch is gold. Roddy has somehow stopped being such an indy vanilla fuck and has put on some of the best work of his life. Adam Cole and Kyle O'Reilly are the future, expect them to be signed within the next three years. Ricochet is having his best year, and is the top wrestler on a televised program.

WE MADE IT, NOW NAME EVERY US PRESIDENT! The one-hundredth entrant into the /wooo/terion Collection is Nobuhiko Takada vs Bob Backlund! (UWF Heart Beat, 22nd December, 1988)

While his popularity in America had been declining for years, Bob Backlund found a new fanbase in Japan, and there was no better place for him to display his technical prowess than in UWF. This was his first meeting with the now-legendary shooter Nobuhiko Takada, one of the promotion's founders, and there was perhaps no better way to make a first impression. Mr. Backlund intended to show his worth, but Takada was determined to prove there were no greater grapplers in the world than the wrestlers of the UWF. Congratulations!

Yep, we're still going, and since it's the last week of the month, it's Short Match Week Mk.II! The time cap is nine minutes, but I'll make some exceptions for matches that go slightly over that.

RULES:
>Be civil, respect each others' opinions, don't insult other nominations. If you have a problem with somebody's nomination, state your problem in a way that doesn't make you look like a dick.
>All nominees must be at least one year old, taking place on or before May 27th, 2014.
>Please provide a link to your nomination in full, as well as a description of why you think your match deserves to be in the Collection. Your description can be anything from a few sentences to several paragraphs, whatever you feel is necessary. Youtube or Dailymotion links are preferred, but not necessary if the match is only availabe elsewhere.
>Any promotion that gets more than five nominees will get its own preliminary poll. Please consider this before nominating!
>Do not nominate famously bad matches. That's what our sister collection, the Disasterpiece Theatre, is for. Support them!
>No yardtarding.

All WWE/WWF/WWWF matches and UWF matches are obviously barred from nomination this week, though UWFi matches are fine since it's a separate promotion. Let's see some great stuff this week to follow up on number one hundred!

Claudio Castagnoli vs Mike Quackenbush from a CZW event in 2005. I want to say Best of the Best but I'm not sure. Nothing particularly amazing but a solid, sound and exciting match with a semi-fresh Claudio still in the cut sleeve dress shirt and tie well before he became the huge indy star and the always fun to watch Quack.

I remember the match because I'm certain it was like 7 minutes of non-stop excitement and it was my first exposure to the two as well, so it's a fond match of mine.

Iceberg was this 500 lb guy who was around in the early 2000s. For some reason, Gabe Sapolsky apparently wanted to make him ROH Champ, the idea being having a big guy as champ would make crowds wonder who would beat him. But Iceberg fucking sucked, so Gabe went with the not-as-big-but-infinitely-better Samoa Joe instead.

On topic, I am the next signing to NXT. I'm debuting at the next Takeover event, where I will take out everyone in the main event, then have a live sex celebration with Dana Brooke.

Welcome to the Womens' Wrestling thread, a place to discuss women's wrestling whether it's joshi, women's lucha libre, women's indie wrestling, the WWE Divas division, TNA Knockouts division, and anything in between.

/Joshi/tube airs every Saturday at 4pm Eastern/9pm London in /wooo/tube - http://taima.tv/r/wooo and is a great way to discover what joshi is all about. People in the chat will be able to answer questions as you ask them.

Western Promotions to watch: WWE's Diva division (cough cough), NXT's Woman Division, TNA's Knockout division, SHIMMER Wrestling (available almost exclusively on DVD), SHINE Wrestling (available regularly on iPPV), WSU (sister promotion to CZW, often on iPPV), AAA Luchadoras, CMLL Luchadoras, LLF (Lucha Libre Femenil)

Eastern Promotions to Watch: Stardom (easiest to get into as a Western because of the bright, glitzy personalities), JWP (The purists favorite, hard hitting Joshi action), Ice Ribbon(GRASS ROOTS), REINA, DIANA, OZ Academy, Sendai Girls, Pro Wrestling Wave

Classics: The Legendary run of AJW, classic JWP, ARISON, GAEA, & FMW's female deathmatch division for great action. GLOW if you want over the top female characters and promos.

So that ROH toyline is happening, it's got Cole, the Briscoes, and Steen in it. Steen's evidently the "throwback" figure of the series. I think the prototypes look alright, Cole's definitely the closest to his actual likeness. If they fix up Jay and Mark a little for the final release I'd be cool with having Dem Boys on my desk. Also, unless Mattel goes and makes a Kevin Owens figure in some sort of NXT line real soon, this is going to be the first ever figure made of Steen.

Also general /wooo/toy/ thread if that's cool.

I'm sure Naito will do better now instead of being hampered by Gedo's super cena push of Okada

Only surprising thing is Naito being a technico instead of a rudo. Really underrated Rudo if you ask me.

Far better rudo than Nakamura and Okada ever hoped to be.

If he's trying to join Ingobernables, isn't he more like a rudo? Isn't there gimmick "tecnicos that act like rudos" or something?

Yeah pretty much, he can't go full rudo though. Apparently Rush is the only tecnico allowed to go full Rudo and that's because his hair holds the power of a million pesos.

Some interesting videos I found while trawling japanese tv warai shows.

Basically puro is having a bit of a revival with females in japan thanks to savvy marketing of good looking wrestlers.

Overall summary for non japanese speakers.

  1. More and more 20-30 plus females are becoming puro fans
  2. The word pujoshi (combination of fujoshi and puro) means girls who love puro
  3. A 37 year old author who won the naoki award(japan equivalent of booker price) admitted that puro gave her the courage to write, she is also a huge tanahashi fan
  4. List of reasons for the popularity, stress relieve, great fan service (female goods, eg hello kitty), matches can be enjoyed for the entertainment value(ddt, drsgon gate), wrestlers are much more fan friendly and approachable, and of course of a variety of good looking wrestlers for all types.
  5. Ibushi is the no 1 with females ATM

Your winner and the 70th inductee of the Disasterpiece Theatre is Bacardi vs. Mercedes Justine - NWA-FUW 6/29/2012

There's not much to say but I agree with Lenny Leonard that "I'm gonna need a Bacardi after this". After 69 inductees, this match finally becomes our 70th inductee.

This week is Multi-Man Tag Team Match Week with tag team matches of 6 or more participants. I was gonna also limit it to no less than two teams but I figure there's not gonna be a lot of nominees if it was just that.

RULES:
>Be civil, respect each others' opinions, don't insult other nominations. If you have a problem with somebody's nomination, state your problem in a way that doesn't make you look like a dick.
>All nominees must be at least one year old, taking place on or before May 22hd, 2014.
>Please provide a link to your nomination in full, as well as a description of why you think your match deserves to be in the Theatre. Your description can be anything from a few sentences to several paragraphs, whatever you feel is necessary. Youtube or Dailymotion links are preferred, but not necessary if the match is only available elsewhere.
>Any promotion that gets more than five nominees with more than ten nominees overall will get its own preliminary poll. Please consider this before nominating!
>Do not nominate famously good matches. That's what our sister collection, the /wooo/terion Collection, is for. Support them!
>No yardtarding.

THE FOLLOWING MATCHES ARE INELIGIBLE THIS WEEK:

Has there ever been a truly bad Hardy Boyz and Michael Hayes 6-man tag match from the brief period Hayes managed Matt and Jeff?

That's the only thing that immediately comes to mind, and I can't search for videos while I'm at work. If someone finds one before I get to it, then nominate it.

Has Doink's team vs Lawler's team been inducted yet?

New generation wasn't bad in ring wise besides you know, the midgets and shit. Everyone was solid, just the gimmicks were trash.

Guess I better add my nomination.

Hillbilly Jim, Haiti Kid, and Little Beaver vs King Kong Bundy, Little Tokyo, and Lord Littlebrook WWF Wrestlemania III

http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNjAzMDE0MDg0.html

This match fucking sucks. The midgets could wrestle...I guess. Match was like under 5 min. This was literally just putting these guys on the card. Two thumbs down.

Dixie Carter
>before entering the wrestling business had a full time job in marketing
>tricked by Russo, Bischoff and Cornette, each who claimed they were expert bookers. a poor decision in hindsight.
>by most accounts is personable, approachable and friendly to her staff
>In an industry on the downturn and a tv market that isn't interested in wrestling, is forced to make tough decisions when it comes to salaries,
>did some bad things (notably the treatment of Sorenson and Daffney)
>Goes on twitter to do and Q and A. is trolled mercilessly and humoursly, this is declared to be a gaffe on her part.
>Played a heel character on TV, cut great promos, allowed herself to get her comeuppance in a big way, taking a dangerous bump for the sake of the company, while the entire roster stood around the ring cheering "the witch is dead". After that stayed away from TV, as the angle was over.

Stephanie

>got plum jobs in creative despite having no experience
>fired Chyna the day after she was dumped by Triple H in favour of her
>known to speak down to employees and call them marks
>takes two paychecks, paying herself a coporate salary and a "performer" salary that is much more than half the full time roster.

>But Spud and EC3 only got properly over when she went.

But the seedwork was set during the dixieland angle. they got plenty of screentime to build the characters. After Dixie left, they both stepped forward into the spotlight.

>The person who put her through the table isn't even with them anymore

And? It was a good storyline and then the story ended.

Didn't she also work for her family at the time?

Kinda nullifies the first point against steph as well.

Either way, Dixie is completely incompetent, end of discussion.

That's not how wrestling works. You can't draw money as a heel if the audience isn't expecting you to get your ass beat eventually, that's what divides the thin line between heel heat and X-Pac heat.

No, if the audience thinks the heel will never get their comeuppance they'll just stop watching. Cornette talked on the 89 WCW timeline about how the Sheik killed the Toronto territory when after 7 years undefeated and drawing bigger crowds than virtually any heel in history throughout that period, he got a cop-out win on Andre the Giant. People went to that show because they thought Andre would finally be the one to take the Sheik out, but when it didn't happen fans felt like it would never happen so they stopped going to the shows.
