The "babyface" commentary on Smackdown's main event last night by Masked Superstar - Wed, 13 Dec 2017 16:08:41 EST ID:PuK950cb No.5916351 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

We need to talk about this /wooo/.
Just catching up on SD, and am watching the main event.
What the hell was going on with the babyface commentators ganging up on Bryan and acting like he had turned heel for daring to question Shane's integrity and adding himself as the 2nd ref to the Tag match at Clash of Champions?
They were reacting to Bryan the same way they react to all heels, and then you had Byron coming off as the most pathetic bootlicking asskisser employee, even though he is supposed to be a babyface, literally giving the Nurermburg defense of "I would do anything my superior tells me to and never disobey an order." Philips was reacting similarly as he is a face as well, asking these awful biased unreasonable questions, and they had Graves the heel commentator back up Bryan which suggests that Bryan is supposed to be coming from a heel perspective despite still being a face and being 100% completley sound & reasonable in his position. Then you had the weirdness of Byron (Vince) going in on Bryan for talking about his relationships with Zayn/Owens/Nakamura prior to WWE, doing the usual WWE mark bullshit of "hurr it doesn't amtter what you did before WWE it doesn't count." Byron was made a complete idiot out of and came off as a shameless bootlicking kissass who looks like an absolute heel in the eyes of any normal human being who isn't a dictator than only wants blind loyalty. All of which culminated with Byron absolutely ethering Saxton for being just that and completely neutering him and humiliating him. Then when Bryan goes in after the other ref went down, they start totally heeling out on him and getting on him for not getting in fast enough to count for Shinsuke.
What in the fuck was going on here? It was the weirdest shit I've ever seen.

Nah, B, it's an act. Superman's not weak and unsure of himself, so it's not authentic meekness from Clark either. You're right that he's kind and compassionate, but he also does realize how much weaker humans are while still having respect for them.

>Watch Final Battle at 9pm EST / 2am GMT in /wooo/tube - http://taima.tv/r/wooo and /wooo/alt - http://taima.tv/r/woooalt

Ring of Honor’s biggest event of the year, Final Battle, emanates from the Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom! Fans around the world will be watching as wrestling’s top stars clash with scores to be settled and championships to be decided! This year’s Final Battle is the 15th in ROH history and will cap off the company’s biggest year yet!

“The American Nightmare” captured the ROH World Championship from Christopher Daniels at Best in the World. Since then, Cody has maintained an open challenge for his championship, defending it against everyone from Cheeseburger to KUSHIDA, Minoru Suzuki, and more. Cody was accepting all challengers, and announced he believed that he defeated everyone following a victory over Sanada at War of the Worlds: Liverpool before being confronted by Dalton Castle! Castle went nose to nose with the champ and it looked like the two would go at it right then and there! But Cody rolled out of the ring and fans would have to wait. They would wait for a few months. The next night, Cody sneak attacked Castle, injuring Castle’s shoulder in the process, while yelling at Castle that he did not deserve a title shot. Fast forward two months later to Global Wars: Chicago, the last night of the most financially-lucrative tour in ROH history. Cody had made a habit of taking selfies with fans after his victories on the tour and decided to address the crowd and take selfies before the match. Cody selected what appeared to be a fan with an American flag ski mask to take a photo with him. By the time Cody had his phone ready, he was accidentally taking a video instead. And that video revealed what all the fans in Chicago and those watching on IPPV saw even clearer—the fan was Dalton Castle and he was there to get revenge!

In Philadelphia, Cody promised to take on “the man everyone wanted to see him face”. With the crowd chanting for Castle at a fever pitch, Cody instead brought out ROH Dojo graduate Ryan Nova. Cody picked up the victory in short order before Castle confronted him once more. With the challenge officially issued, Cody’s management team has come to terms with Castle, and the ROH World Championship will be on the line in the Big Apple! For Castle, this match is not only an opportunity to reach the pinnacle of professional wrestling but also to shove every word back down the champion’s throat. Cody, just over one year after his ROH debut, has an opportunity to walk into ROH’s premier event as World Champion defeating a man who he looks down on, a man he calls only a gimmick, a man who he doesn’t truly believe is a championship-caliber wrestler. It will be Cody versus Dalton Castle at Final Battle with not only a grudge to be settled but also the ROH World Championship on the line! Who will leave the City That Never Sleeps ROH World Champion? Join us to find out!

This main event plus three other championship matches and more tonight at Final Battle! Here's the lineup for the show:

ROH World Championship Match: Cody (c) vs. Dalton Castle

Singles Match: Marty Scurll vs. Jay Lethal

ROH World Tag Team Championship Match: The Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin) (c) vs. Best Friends

Pretty basic wrestler, one of those weirdly strong guys, pretty sweet suplexes. Finisher is pretty cool. Dunno how to explain his gimmick other than a flamboyant asexual who peacocks aboot. You’ve just gotta watch some of his promos or something. He’s always come off as unique and entertaining to me, seems like the right move to get past 3 star special.

>At the end of ESPN’s recent “30 for 30” episode about the XFL, WWE owner Vince McMahon and former NBC Sports chairman Dick Ebersol — the two men who spearheaded the failed early-aughts competitor to the NFL — mused about possibly giving it another go.

>“Do you ever have any thoughts about trying again?” Ebersol asked McMahon, per Pro Football Talk’s transcription.

>“Yes I do,” McMahon replies. “I don’t know what it would be. I don’t know if it’s going to be another XFL or what it may be or how different I would make it. It seems like in some way it would tie in either with the NFL itself or the owners.”

>And then Friday, a journalist and pro-wrestling fan named Brad Shepard tweeted this out: https://twitter.com/TheBradShepard/status/941829900838645761
>EXCLUSIVE: Vince McMahon is looking to bring back the XFL and may announce it on January 25th, 2018.

>Shepard didn’t provide much in the way of follow-up to that tweet, but Deadspin’s David Bixenspan asked a WWE spokesperson about it. The wrestling company neither confirmed nor denied that McMahon actually was starting a new football league, but it sure seems as if he’s thinking about it, at the very least.

>A WWE spokesperson issued the attached statement to me & @Deadspin in response to my inquiry about tonight's rumors of a soon to be announced XFL revival. They declined further comment. Whatever Vince McMahon's "Alpha Entertainment" is, it's self-funded & separate from WWE.

What is the worst angle of all time in your opinion? I was gonna give it to the Bella feud but then I remembered Ziggler/Rusev/Lana/Summer love square and juggling between the two, at least the Bella feud was so bad you could meme it and make fun of it and shit, while the love square was just bad and did good to nobody. So that has to be the worst that I ever saw.

I think if Finn Balor vs Sister Abigail continued, that would have taken the top spot.

Jerry Lawler vs Michael Cole.

I've been watching wrestling for many eons and that one sticks out as something that took up way too much time and made the show hard to watch/made me change the channel.

Commentators feuding and bickering the whole show during every match, who thought that was a good idea? What was the purpose? They couldn't have been trying to gain viewers, and it detracted from the actual matches.

> This Mixed Match Challenge experiment is two-sided. Facebook will get to see what type of response and value WWE programming would have. For WWE, if Facebook sees the value as being worth a ton of money, it can use Facebook to either leverage up the television rights fees for programming for its next contract, or even move Raw, Smackdown or both, to Facebook if they make the best offer and the feeling is they won’t lose audience in such a move.

> Another key is with Facebook being worldwide and not just U.S., moving the key shows to a streaming service like that in late 2019 or early 2020, which would be the earliest a move could be made, would mean the payment would have to cover not just U.S. rights fees but the combined worldwide rights fees as if that move is made, it would affect every television partner worldwide.

> Between Facebook being clearly interested in WWE programming, and the positive news about UFC being virtually a lock to get an increase in revenue from its new contract, meaning WWE would be expected to get the same next year, the stock price has increased to $31.88 at press time, giving the company at $2.458 billion market value. There are analysts throwing out $400 million annual numbers, which has also led to the stock increasing and could lead to the similar big fall that took place the last time out when the rights were sold for far less than the stock market was led to believe they would be.

> Currently WWE stock is trading at 65.6 times annual earnings. While a ton of variables are involved here, currently the average price of a stock on Wall Street is 19.7 times annual earnings. The UFC sale, which some felt was overpriced at the time (although there were two bidders who didn’t, but many heavy hitters dropped out once it became clear that $3.5 billion wouldn’t be enough), was at 25.3 times annual earnings. So based on usual market, the stock is way overpriced. But that isn’t necessarily the case because a huge increase in television rights fees can go largely toward the bottom line and the idea is WWE profits, which were $27.8 million for the first nine months of this year, with a huge increase in rights fees could get to $123 million for a year in the near future which justifies the current stock price. At least that’s the mentality behind the stock price.

> Tetsuya Naito, 35, was named the Tokyo Sports pro wrestling MVP in a balloting of sportswriters on 12/13, for the second year in a row. The race came down to Naito and Kazuchika Okada, and Naito getting it because he was considered more valuable in the growth of New Japan Pro Wrestling this past year. It’s usually an award where holding one of the major titles is part of it. Okada had both a record setting longest IWGP title reign and easily the best and most consistent high quality of title matches in the history of the belt. Naito was still the hottest wrestler, by far the biggest merchandise seller, and also beat Kenny Omega to win the G-1 Climax and beat Hiroshi Tanahashi twice in IC title matches before losing it. Of the 21 reporters, Naito got 15 votes, Okada got five and Kenny Omega got one. It’s one of the Japanese traditions that a foreigner almost never gets votes for Japanese MVP (other than the year Bob Sapp won where the feeling was he was far too over to not win).

I highly doubt he'll bring up "Jews run the media" in a WWE Hall of Fame induction speech. Everyone was worried about what Warrior was going to say, and that worked out fine.

But yeah, fuck Kid Rock. Dude's a spoiled rich kid that pretends he's somehow a working class southerner. He grew up in a literal mansion and his parents were millionaires.

Post some feuds that you think are largely underrated by wrestling fans.

Pic related for me. They botched the introduction of the cruiserweights big time but man some of the moments of this feud was great. Kendricks probably the most underrated promo guy on the roster.

>TJP beats Kendrick
>Kendrick can't stand the idea that he's messing up again and turns heel
>Starts begging TJP to let him win so that he can provide for himself and his family
>Suckers TJP in to beat him for the title.

I loved that feud.

What's yours /wooo/?

More related to the matches themselves than any storyline, but I always really liked seeing Tajiri and Super Crazy wrestle. They always brought out the best in each other.

Meh. Boring belt for a boring promotion. At least the Rocko belt is dead.

This is shitty too. Women's wrestling isn't going to be taken seriously if it's associated with pink, flowery bullshit. Look at women's MMA. Are any of the belts pink? Or literally any other women's sport. If they want it to be taken seriously, they shouldn't infantilize it.

Hell, I'd even argue the WWE Divas Championship made more sense than this. During the time of the Divas Division, WWE didn't expect anyone to take the division seriously. For the most part, it was just hot women rolling around the ring for ~5 minutes. It wasn't meant to be taken seriously.

Because he's an old lunatic. Years of steroids and concussions will do that to you.

He can't work anymore either. Did you see his Slammiversary match (well, more of a short film) in June? He can barely move. At least he seems aware he's a joke these days (and if he was performing any of that earnestly, that's fucking sad).

Who am I kidding, no one here actually watches Impact.

Suggest relevant bingo squares for the card made to see how predictable WWE really is. The last card is attached for reference.
FujiBet for this show hasn't been put up yet as of this post but do sign up to the /wooo/perstars FujiBet League at http://www.lolwrestling.com/play/fujibet/leagues/1/ and predict the show at http://www.lolwrestling.com/play/fujibet/ when it is up.
This thread is to suggest bingo squares, not discuss the card. That's what the PPV thread is for.

The final WWE PPV of 2017 is here with the SmackDown brand and in 2018 there will be less PPVs which everyone will surely be pleased about, as aside from one month there will be no RAW or SmackDown PPVs every two weeks.

> WWE CHAMPIONSHIP: AJ Styles (c) vs. Jinder Mahal
> WWE U.S. CHAMPIONSHIP: Baron Corbin (c) vs. Bobby Rodde vs. Dolph Ziggler
> WWE SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: The Usos (c) vs. The New Day vs. Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable vs. Rusev and Aiden English
> Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens vs. Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura (Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan will be guest referees. If Zayn and Owens lose, they will be fired from WWE)
> The Bludgeon Brothers vs. Breezango
> KICKOFF SHOW: Zack Ryder vs. Mojo Rawley
