I'm from the UK, and in our national news, a story about a former Mayor of London being an anti-Semite has been kicking off.

I also heard about Donald Trump being in favour of the transgender toilet situation.

In the UK, Jade Goody went from reality heel to woman's magazine babyface.

These aren't brilliant examples, and nor is this topic wrestling related, strictly speaking. I just thought it would be interesting if we could have a collection of face/heel turns in real life.

I am drunk. Hope the thread makes sense, and I chose this picture because I googled 'traitor' after 'heel turn' and 'double cross' came up with crap pics. I haven't seen Star Wars, but I recognise this pic from the promotional stuff. Hopefully this guy doesn't turn out to be a traitor.

Its amazing how I am watching this taping of NXT and the only thoughts going through my mind right then were "Did they seriously give Samoa fucking Joe the fucking NXT Championship on a fucking house show?"

What dictated giving Joe one final match? AND WITHOUT A STIPULATION AT THAT?! He's lost twice. The last time Joe got a contendership for the NXT Championship he had to beat Baron Corbin and Sami Zayn.

Did Finn just say "Y'know what Joe fighting you is exhilarating and since I am as generic as babyfaces with no character come I am gonna give you as many NXT Championship matches as you damn near want until you fucking win this Championship from me fella."

Absofuckinglutely unbelievable. Is this WWE experimenting with the idea of just having storylines be dictated through House Show wins? Are we reverting back to the old days where it was completely fucking normal to win Championships at untelevised non canon events?

I give it a couple of months. Main Roster stars will start randomly losing titles for no reason at House Shows. Kalisto will drop his Championship to Ryback at a House Show. The Miz will drop his Championship back to Kevin Owens at a House Show.

ROMAN REIGNS COULD DROP THE WWE CHAMPIONSHIP TO JOHN CENA AT A HOUSE SHOW!

LOOK AT ALL THIS LAZY IMPULSE HOT POTATOING FAM! FUCK LONG TERM BOOKING LETS DO THE SAME SHIT THAT PUT WCW IN THE HOLE IT DUG ITSELF IN!

I still find it infuriating there is no real explanation why Finn granted Joe another Championship match

What did he do to earn that? Defeat Apollo?

You should have built up a tournament angle featuring Jordan, Gable, Zayn, Nakamura, Corbin, Apollo, Joe and Aries

House shows have title matches as their main events all the time. I guess in-kayfabe, people would rather have televised title shots to get the fame, glory, and exposure.

>It's either the best or the worst

With that being said, storytelling seems to be pretty garbage across most boards right now despite most promotions having wrestlers that are capable in the ring. That has been the case for a long time though and it has seemingly gotten worse each year for the last several.

While big moves are being made such as talent acquisitions for WWE, it is very hard to care when one knows that they are going to be written by a company that is creatively bankrupt. Delirious has hit his Gabe Sapolsky 2008 breaking point as far as I'm concerned. TNA has solid storytelling but their roster is desolate. LU hasn't been as good as Season 1 was. Admittedly, I am not keeping up with Japanese wrestling like I did in the last few years, but most of the excitement seems to be coming from what is happening behind the scenes (signings, WWE working with other promotions) rather than what's being written for the camera, but that's just me.

>On last night's episode of @midnight, host Chris Hardwick took some shots at Roman Reigns' taste in jeans. Hardwick said that Reigns' name sounded like a "Pompeian porn star" and brought up a photo of Reigns sporting denim jeans from the Ad Council's Fatherhood PSA above. Hardwick talked about people on Twitter ripping on the photo, with one person tweeting, "Lost custody of your kids denim."

>Hardwick turned to comedians Tony Hale, Reid Scott and Timothy Simons to say something nice and cheer Reigns up. Simons had a great line, saying that you could wear the jeans anywhere, like a Smashmouth concert or to the courthouse "when you have to register as a sex offender."

If Ramen wants to be face of the company he needs some thicker skin.

I love how he always falls back on the "hurr durr I'm really cool in real life, internet nerds lol!" line every single time though. And gets his family to back him up.

Didn't his Dad flip out when Seth cashed in and won the title at Mania? Sounds like being a mark runs through the family

He's younger than Joe, Balor, Ziggler, Ryback, Cesaro, Miz, Axel, Rowan, and Sandow, just to name a few.

While I don't know if it will go that long, it isn't delusional at all to expect this title reign to be like Cena/Batista in 2005 in the sense of both hold the belt for the remainder of the calendar year at the very minimum.

Over in Wisconsin there's been billboard ads popping up for an independent runner named Todd Mac, and the majority of his platform is centered around John Cena

http://www.tmac4prez.com/

>Todd Mac is a believer of ‘security through strength’. There is not a stronger person in this world than professional wrestler, John Cena. The best part is you literally cannot see him, according to his 2005 platinum album titled “You Can’t See Me.” John Cena is a powerhouse of the highest caliber and with his support and help, ISIS will have no other option and have to surrender.

I know who would get my vote, that's for sure.

Do you think modern WWE could ever keep a finisher so protected, that WWE could make a video listing the small number of people to kick out of it? Should finishers be more protected instead of kicked out of to make big matches seem bigger?

According to this, only 8 people ever kicked out of the Tombstone in over 25 years:

Kane
Batista
Edge
Shawn
Triple H
CM Punk
Brock
Bray Wyatt

Out of those, Brock is the only ine to ever kick out of every tombstone Undertaker ever gave him. Isn't it weird seeing a finisher that no one kicked out of for 7 years? Or that Wyatt has kicked out of something that not even Austin and The Rock could?
