Serious question, would it benefit the industry as a whole if the monopoly of WWE crumbled?

Its not important. Its a feeder system for WWE. It just seems important because you read and watch so much about it. 99% of the wrestlers in it are building a resume for so they can get as big a downside as possible when they go to WWE.
Also if WWE went under suddenly there would be 100 new wrestlers who would instantly take most of the spots on every single card straight away and a good percentage of Indie wrestlers would have to quit as it wouldn't be sustainable.
Thats exactly what happened when WCW and ECW folded.

You really think ROH is going to be pushing even people at Dalton Castles level when they have access to the entire roster of WWE and NXT.

If this is what you want to believe.

>Also if WWE went under suddenly there would be 100 new wrestlers who would instantly take most of the spots on every single card straight away

Yeah, cause guys like Darren Young and Alex Riley are killing it on the indie scene currently right?

The only guys that would start filling spots on the card would be the likes of Hero, Claudio, Generico, Rollins, Moxley, Gargano, Gulak, etc. Quite honestly, I WANT them back on the indie scene. I've wanted them back since the day they left. Guys like Cena and Orton would find it beneath them to do indies and would just do something else. All the undercarders and midcarders wouldn't be good enough to be booked on a card. You might get one or two of them on a show as an attraction, but that's it. It's not like WWE would close and their roster would flood the scene. Any notable worthwhile promotions would only book those that are good. And nearly everyone on WWE's roster that was good came from the indie scene and would be welcomed back.

Lazy booking. I am so sick of the women wrestlers getting stuck on random six woman tags on Smackdown and RAW. How hard is it to have one main storyline for your champion and other storylines for other women. Or is that just too much common sense for Road Dogg and the writers? I mean, Jesus, it's not that hard to do and these tag matches are probably one of the major reasons the crowd is so dead when the women come out. You don't give the fans a reason to care. It's them saying, "Oh, ANOTHER tag match?, guess I'll get some snacks."

The reason why might surprise you! jokes

>The WWE is doing the kind of business that makes it a potential acquisition target for content-hungry media conglomerates, scoring $50.6 million in net income off of $801 million in revenue last year, an all-time high. The company managed to build what is the 11th-most-popular streaming service in the United States, with some 1.5 million subscribers paying $9.99 a month for its content.

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/significant-digits-for-tuesday-feb-20-2018/

And that's all there is to it. It's interesting that they see this as "some other conglomerate might want to buy WWE given those numbers". NBC Universal already has a pretty solid deal with WWE, but would Vince ever sell? If WWE did become part of some conglomerate, what would the wrestling landscape look like?

Wrestlers being marks is what's killing the business, not flippy shit, comedy dick spots, Vince McMahon, or anything else.

Most of the current group of wrestlers grew up watching and loving WWE, which means that when they get there, they're too star-struck and afraid to lose their spot that they would never dare to speak up and defend themselves and their character. WWE purposefully breaks the talent down and makes them believe THEY owe the company, instead of the other way around. They're not wrestlers anymore, they become sports entertainers portraying a role.

The "company men" are the biggest marks of them all. Vince is powerless, he NEEDS his stars if he wants to make money, as desperately as he's tried to change the business to make stars obsolete. They could stand up for themselves and the other workers, get better conditions and bring the business into the 21st century, but they won't. And they never will. And they'll go on to train another generation how to be good worker bees for the McMahons.

Some do. Those people usually leave, are depushed, or are let go. Which is why most are too afraid to stand up for their own self worth. The problem isn't the marks, it's the company that manipulates the mark and then suppresses the marks once it has control.

Some wrestlers are nice and will hold a guy down until help arrives, however most wrestlers DREAM of someone running into the ring because they can literally beat the shit out of the person legally. So of course big roided up goofs welcome your little ass to come in the ring so they can show off 'for real'.

I think Savage’s best known incident was with WCW back in 1999. Nash was laid out and Savage was putting make up on his face or some shit when a fuckwit jumped the rail. Savage immediately stopped and went after the little geek and kicked him hard.


Ranking EC outcomes worst to best by Eli Cottonwood - Tue, 20 Feb 2018 14:33:16 EST ID:b4vJKHB9 No.5972738 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

All of the sheets and reporters are saying that Roman is 100% the lock to win this Sunday. While we all know that is a terrible result, what would actually be the best result? Keeping in mind, that both the potential match quality with Brock plus how it makes sense in Kayfabe apply. In my mind, it goes like this:

>7. Finn Balor
While I won't deny he has way more talent than Roman, Cena, Elias and the Miz, his style wouldn't mesh well with Lesnar in the main event match. Also factor in he is an average promo on his best day, it would lead to poor build and poor match.
>6. The Miz
The promo's alone between Paul and the Miz would be worth almost anything, but in the long run wouldn't accomplish much. Miz works a slow methodical style, which against suplex city just wouldn't mesh well. Not only that but the IC title gets screwed no matter what. If Miz holds it until WM, then the IC is off the card on the biggest show of the year. If Miz drops it before WM then the title is just being lobbed without much build and makes Miz look weak which is the worst thing to do against Lesnar if you're trying to sell the match.
>5. Cena
He can have decent matches, and has so against Lesnar before, but it would be a waste to give the rub to Cena if he wins. If he doesn't win then they buried all other 6 men in this match for nothing, so it's a lose/lose no matter what the result of the match is. Cena "shoot" into passionate promos are OK, and Paul has a lot of material to work with, that the build is OK, but not worth it.
>4. Reigns
Has HAD a good match with Brock already, plus works best is big brawling matches (see matches with Braun last year, all great), but that's all it's got going for it. Reigns has already has his WM moment, and big title win, and done everything, so it won't mean much when he wins. His promos suck, and not even Heyman could pull something serviceable out of him. The most boring result, but not the worst outcome.
>3. Elias
Could have very fun promos with Heyman, could work as a heel or turn him into a face with the build. Has been getting decent victories in the last few months, crowd is into his gimmick and has had decent to…

you know, cena would ironically be the one to benefit the most by not winning, i'm really liking his recent character work and his in ring mannerism, like i know that cena was never this fast paced spot monkey but his traditional style and his tired and depressed attitude mash really well together, and i hope we get to see more of his obsession with needing a road to wrestlemania in the future

seth winning would be dope after last raw, never thought i'd say that, and fuck balor

Is someone in marketing just tired of having to put last names on merchandise? This loathing of last names is just baffling.

It's just some weird thing Vince has been anally obsessed with for the last 5 or so years so he can't not be annoyed whenever he remembers it. People usually referred to people by the second half of their ring name whenever they did promos (You'd normally see him referred to Cena instead of John in most cases).

>Watch WWE RAW with /wooo/ in /wooo/tube - http://taima.tv/r/wooo and /wooo/alt - http://taima.tv/r/woooalt at 8pm Eastern//1am London

The final episode of Raw before the Elimination Chamber PPV is all set to emanate from the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, AZ. The eyes of the WWE universe will be fixed on the show as we head into the elimination chamber PPV this Sunday. Both the men and women will make history in the event as we will see for the first time in history 7 men will participate in the Elimination Chamber match, and the first ever women's elimination chamber match. It will be interesting to see how WWE is going to book the final episode of Raw before going into Elimination Chamber.

>Roman Reigns' booking before he wins the elimination chamber match
WWE's Big Dog, Roman Reigns is set to walk into the elimination chamber match this Sunday to secure a spot to face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 34. It is almost certain that he will walk out as victorious from the elimination chamber and will go beast hunting at WrestleMania. This week's Raw will feature a huge 7 men gauntlet match featuring the participants of the men's elimination chamber match. The outcome of this match will be a huge factor going into Sunday. We can expect Roman Reigns to play a very dominant role in this match, he may not win this match though as it will make Sunday's result more predictable. So, expect the Big Dog to be eliminated by Braun Strowman. This will probably be the last time we will see Roman Reigns get pinned for a while as he is set to main event his fourth WrestleMania in a row.

>What / Who will Braun Strowman break next?
We've seen Braun Strowman tip over cars and trucks and pull down heavy sets on his opponents, but never have we ever saw Strowman's entertaining side when he played a gigantic bass and sang it out for the crowd (If you don't count his days as a rosebud). Braun Strowman is one of the favorites going into the elimination chamber match and unfortunately, he will not be the one to walk out of the chamber as the winner, we all know who that is don't we? But that doesn't rule out the possibility of Strowman doing what he does best, and that destroys things and people. We can expect Strowman to walk out of the main event Gauntlet match and go into Elimination Chamber as a dominant force.

>The opponents for the Raw Tag Team Championships
The status of the Raw Tag Team Championships for the elimination chamber PPV is still up in the air and the current champions The Bar are yet to know their opponents for Sunday. We can expect the situation to be cleared on this week's Raw and General Manager Kurt Angle may reveal which team will challenge the Bar for the Tag Team Championships at Elimination Chamber. The best choice would be to have the Revival face The Bar for the tag titles this Sunday as this will certainly be one of the best matches in the event.

>Planting the seeds for a Finn Balor and Miz feud
The Miz has been taking shots at Finn Balor on social media and it seems like the seeds for a potential feud between the superstars is being planted. The Miz fired some shots at Finn Balor on the latter's lack of success ever since he returned from injury. We can expect some sort of retaliation from Finn Balor during their main event gauntlet match in this week's Raw. Personally, I feel this feud has all it takes to make it to WrestleMania and it would be an absolute classic bout between the two for the Intercontinental Championship.

I guess the Walk With Elias thing was too subtle that they had to make giant W W E letters on the front of it to remind people it's a wrestling shirt.

I'd have bought this shirt and legitimately wore it if they didn't feel the need to put giant fucking "WWE" on it. Looks ridiculous because of it.

But "Walk With Elias" is the most important part of his catchphrase. Why would you want to get rid of it?

The WWE style seems to have become constant imitations of the structure of the HBK/Undertaker series. Just big move, kick out, zoom in on shocked face of one of the guys, laying around, rinse repeat.

This style protects guys like the Miz from having trainwreck matches, but it really holds back top tier wrestlers who could obviously do better. It's hard to care about any big match until the first finisher is kicked out of.

the past 40+ years of professional wrestling is full of 75% failed football players. Where the hell else are these athletes supposed to come from? People with no athletic background usually dont make it through training my dude

Just found some stuff you might be interested in:
>Notes from Johnny Powers interview with 57talk.com
>He was a promoter in the Toronto/Buffalo/Cleveland area. He felt they couldn’t count on NWA champs coming often enough, so he broke away with theNWF. They got good magazine press and had enough talent that they were reputable, on par with other major territories. However they lost money, in part because Johnny took a lot of risks. Inoki, who knew Powers from Powers having worked in JWA, called Powers for advice. The NWA demanded too much to join (40k; others only paid a token amount) because they already had Baba in Japan. Powers told him to forget that and said he’d make Inoki a world champ by selling him the company and its title. Inoki only cared about the title and never tried promoting shows in the US despite paying more money than the NWA wanted in the first place.
>However, for some reason Powers didn’t get all the money up front. He was consultant and wrestler for Inoki for years, giving him booking ideas. In the end Inoki reneged on a promised 60k final payment in ’80 because he’d taken everything Powers had to offer (title, ideas). Powers threatened to sue, but Inoki told him he’d counter-sue and win because Powers was a gaijin. Powers decided to walk away. On one hand it was dishonest, but on the other hand Powers got a lot of money for a promotion he didn’t actually want anymore when he sold it.
>Vince told Inoki to drop the NWF name (NWF having been a former northeast rival), so they went to the IWGP name in the mid-80s. Powers views himself as having had a big impact on the creation of Strong Style.

>Notes from Bruno Sammartino interview with Wrestling Observer Radio
>Background: Bruno wrestled in Japan starting with JWA in the ‘60s, though he wrestled less often upon becoming WWF champ.
>He gave Baba a Cadillac because Baba was driving a typical small Japanese car, and it was tough to import them (between the lines: Baba didn’t want to buy one and risk incurring nationalist resentment). Bruno loved Baba and Joe Higuchi, and they went out of their way to get Bruno, but Bruno didn’t go over often because he made such good money in the US. The car wa…

They don't call him Antonio Egoki for nothing.

But I will always appreciate his World Wrestling Peace Festival in LA in 1996. I was front row for Liger/Sasuke. The one time I saw Liger live. Was awesome.
