Are people buying into the narrative that WWE haven't always been high on Dolph Ziggler?

>You don't stay employed with WWE for 10 years and constantly in the midcard or above while your more talented peers have left unless you have good relationship with the back
>Won various titles/honours and partnered with various top talents
>Numerous attempts to get him over, even utilising talents who are far more over than him (Vickie, AJ)
>Got pushed right out the gate with wins over Kane and plans to have Mysterio drop a title to him on PPV

as for why he doesn't deserve to be pushes
>he is a good wrestler, not a great one or anything special in any way
>his gimmick is dated and is just a cheap knock off of various other superstars (HBK called him out on it)
>his promos are awful and make little sense in kayfabe

>He got concussed because of Swagger being reckless and I assume they saw that as a sign Dolph couldn't hang at that level and didn't deserve it.
Pretty sure it was a combination of that, the fact that he complained belittled the shows as he was concussed, and the WWE never really being behind him in the first place.
Similiar to Sandow, they would give them one chance and if that didn't work out, they wouldn't care anymore to lift them up again. And in Sandow's case, he never really got that chance in the first place (albeit, to be fair, I liked Sandow's cosplay run + Mizdow more than Sandow, so I don't really care about that).

You do know we're talking about WWE here, right? The same company that pushed Bobby Lashley, The Great Khali, and Roman Reigns?

>his gimmick is dated and is just a cheap knock off of various other superstars (HBK called him out on it)

Yes, because we all know how original and current "stripper Bret Michaels", friend of "direct Tony Montana ripoff" and "gimmick stolen from Owen Hart" was. This is wrestling, dude.

Ziggy's alright. Wouldn't have been my first choice for Summerslam but I'm willing to admit that he delivers when not booked like shit. And he was definitely over at one point, especially around here.

Me too. On the main roster despite how she's been booked in comparison to the other two, I've been really impressed by Becky. Maybe it's her previous experience compared to the other two but she's worked really well with what she's been given, compared to Sasha and Charlotte. She deserves her big moment in the spotlight, she's definitely good enough. I think she's the best out of the 4HW in all honesty, I appreciate they're all talented, but she's the one that shines the brightest for me.

Sometimes I hear people say things like

"He's a smark favourite"
"they're pandering to the smarks"
"quit being anti-smark"

I also get the impression that many people here see /wooo/ as a "smark" forum. But what does that mean. Smark or smart-mark, used to mean people that knew that wrestling is fake but still could enjoy the show too. Now everyone knows wrestling is a staged performance art, so what does "smark" mean?

If wrestling is an art, then why do people who call themselves smarks, have such lockstep opinions on who is good and bad?

A 'smark' is what happens when a socially stunted wrasslin fan spends too much time on the internet and is warped by the learnt and frankly bizarre notion of 'workrate'. Couple this with the prediliction of this vulnerable group being nerds (the obsession with consumerism and being triggered by traditional masculine thought patterns), being lazy, ignorant and lacking confidence (leading to sheep-like groupthink), it's a deadly mix that leads to the horrifying belief that Kevin Owens is a top worker.

Coming to you from the latest Wrestling Observer, at least for the first few posts. It came out later than usual this week. Star ratings will be posted in a separate thread.

> Caristico will be out of action for about a month due to his pelvis injury. He also said he would be retiring in a few years to save his body for when he gets older.

> Bobby Lashley is out of the Elite tournament. They announced on television that it's because he can't return to Mexico and that Teddy Hart would be taking his place going forward. We don't know the details, but one promoter who had Lashley booked told us with TNA taking over control of his wrestling bookings that they were wanting $6,000 per match, far more than Lashley had been charging in the past. As we said, we don't know that's the case here, but Lashley being pulled from shows here, Puerto Rico and other places all came at about the same time.

> Add Ricochet/Prince Puma to the lineup for TripleMania this year. The Pentagon Jr. vs. Johnny Mundo match for the Latin American title is now official for TripleMania.

> Fenix has moved to San Diego and is trying to mostly work in the U.S. and only go to Mexico for major shows, similar to Taya who has moved to Los Angeles. The feeling is AAA may not use them as much given their financial issues and now they would have to fly them both in.

> Teddy Hart was on Konnan's podcast and said Dorian Roldan offered him a spot on TripleMania and he's considering it, even though he's working now for Elite, which would be considered a rival promotion. He said he's only working for Elite because they needed an emergency sub. He said AAA doesn't want to fly him in for individual shows and wants him to come in and stay a few weeks at a time.

> Io Shirai is taking time off for minor surgery. She is scheduled to return in about one month for the company's Five Star Grand Prix. Toni Storm won the Stardom undisputed world title from Shirai on 7/24 in Osaka at the Edion Arena clean with a legdrop off the top rope. The decision to put the title on Storm isn't related to the injury as it was made some time back to build Storm up as the top foreigner as champion.

> Tommy End, who is headed to WWE, is finishing up his outside work. He finishes in Germany on 8/13 for wXw for a show that he and good friend Michael Dante are producing and booking.

A show like American Grit is almost certainly cheaper to make, at the least.

It probably costs about 10 bucks to actually produce the show or something, it being incredibly cheap to make is the only reason i could see the show surviving with those ratings.

Somewhat true. But,

Hollywood is mostly run by people with big egos who mostly know shit.
As carny the WWE is, most other companies are KIND OF the same. At least the ones in the entertainment business from my own experience.

Is there a more insufferable relationship between a booker and their goldenboy in wrestling today?

Before you say Okada and Gedo: at least Okada looks the part and has delivered in the Tokyo Dome

You could also sell that shirt as an AJ Styles shirt.

I was never a huge Gargano fan, I liked FIST as a whole but that was about it.

Wrestlecon weekend turned me on him, when Gargano played damage control boy for his precious Gabe.

After Drew Galloway had cut a scathing promo on WWE and saying the fans were the most important thing or words to that effect. The same night or next night Gargano does a speech about how great WWE is and how wonderful and kind they are to let him wrestle in Evolve and NXT at the same time, totally glossing over the fact Gabe is on the WWE payroll.

that looks like AJ way more than it does Gargano

Pic related. Inferno matches sound pretty fucking cool but the whole thing really restricts what a wrestler can do. Makes for a cool highlight video though.

>I'm sure with the right people an Inferno match could be made to work and a good story told, preferably two people who are athletic enough to jump the fire and take it outside if need be.

The problem with any kind of fire match is it sucks up all the oxygen and fucks with the wrestlers conditioning.

I like strap/chain matches when the wrestlers are just bound together and having a grudge match, but not with the stupid touch the corners in succession win condition. It just seems like some dumb game show when they're hitting the turnbuckles and some light comes on, not like a fight.

Not to mention fumes and smoke. Though of course that's more of a problem in the japanese matches where they just light fuel soaked rags hung on the ropes that spew out black smoke.
