I like how the commentary notes say to be natural and if the audience don't buy what you're saying as legit, they can't be immersed and invested. Yet who the fuck talks naturally like they do?

Have you ever said something like this in a conversation?
>Wow did you see that Sports Entertainment match between "The Demon King" Finn Balor and "The Architect" Seth Rollins? There was almost a championship change, but then Seth Rollins attacked Finn Balor and incapacitated him, so he had to be sent to a local medical facility! It's matches like that that make me enjoy being part of the WWE Universe.

The "local medical facility" shit was put in place decades ago to keep marks from calling/showing up to a named hospital asking about wrestlers. There used to be a valid reason for it but no one would do that nowadays so it's pointless. Still doesn't explain saying "medical facility" instead of "hospital".

You know, the worst thing about WWE-ese to me, the commentary in particular, is not hearing it on WWE shows. I can tolerate that.

It's that there's an entire generation of who grew up listening to Vince-produced Michael Cole commentary spread out through all of wrestling, emulating Cole because they sincerely believe that's the right way to do it

Yeah, because JR and Jerry Lawler certainly weren't just walking jukeboxes of catchphrases for decades in WWE. Hell, same with Joey Styles, Bobby Heenan, Tony Schiavone. It's not an issue with WWE's commentary, it's just wrestling commentary in general. People just want to pretend is a WWE thing because they outgrew WWE.

While here can I say how shit Drew McIntyre's RAM promo was?

WWE pulled off the best Rumble matches in years and years, potentially making a star. Then the next night they give him a pussy scripted promo that sounds like every other geek "oh, golly, I'm so thankful to be hear and get this oppurtunity" promo that every other nerd in WWE does.

It ain't rocket science: a) Brock comes out, showing ass, with Heyman making up excuses for why he lost, b) McIntyre comes out - "Fuck you, and that little bald bitch next to you, c) An instant brawl quickly stopped by twenty security, d) Keep them apart until Wrestlemania.

McIntyre looks like a million dollars and has the potential to draw (especially now with WWE getting back on terrestrial TV in the UK, i.e. - for the Yanks here - WWE has the potential to boom in the UK again and is probably the reason why Drew won), but he is a seriously damaged product on the fans' eyes due to jobbing for years on TV. He needs to be handled properly or will fail as quickly as Jinder Mahal.

With more promos like that he'll be a bust.

While I think WWE are stupid enough to have him sufferin' succotash-ing in no time anyway, I disagree. Consider - how do you think WWF and Austin's fortunes would have turned out in 1998 if they had Stone Cold cut a heartfelt promo after the Tyson/Michaels Wrestlemania? Austin would have been dead in the water.

They speak this weirdo codified language based on English that is indecipherable to people not inside the cult. Done by design to keep outsiders out of the know.

You realize the WWE JUST put out a documentary that openly lies about HUGE parts of the company's history, right? "I don't see how the WWE - who puts Smiles on People's Faces - is at ALL like a cult with their sanctioned language and literal leader-approved version of history" .

Like, maybe the wrong week for that. Just lay low, wear the clearly branded clothing that shows you are part of the group, consume nothing but The Product and remember to say "it's SUCH GOOD SHIT" to the picture of Vince McMahon on your wall every morning.

WWE using revisionist history and propaganda IS bad but it doesn't make them a literal cult. You're making two different points here. Is WWE the cult, or WWE's fans? Every few weeks, someone reposts >>6353470 which claims the WWE roster are all members of a cult, which is the most insane leap in logic. By extension, any job is a cult.

Any job that keeps you away from your family 300 days a year, breaks you down, reeducates you on how to speak (especially to Outsiders) and do your job the One True Way, teaches you a completely fabricated version of history, teaches you to hate any level of transparency, teaches you to look down on all other leagues, has literally FULL CONTROL over your appearance (at times down to what you wear in public, outside of television) and what you say online, feast when you're good and famine (including public humiliation on national TV) when you're no longer in their favor, and relies on your nostalgia, love for wrestling and empty promises to keep you loyal, sure.

From Gary Michael Capetta's book, on him speaking to a teenage Shane McMahon
>"From everything your dad has told you about the business, what's the most important thing that you've learned?"

>Without skipping a beat, he confidently answered, "Don't let your workers know how important they are so you can get the most out of them for the least amount of money."

Chris Jericho
>We call it ‘The McMahon Jedi Mind Trick.' You go into the office pissed off, ‘I’m not doing this, I’m not gonna do it.’ It’s like on Gilligan’s Island when he wants him to wear a dress, ‘You can’t make me! You can’t make me! You can’t make me!’ and then the next scene he’s wearing a dress.”

Yes, there are those who might say some of those items are red flags in a potential work environment.

>Any job that keeps you away from your family 300 days a year
WWE has a cruel, completely outdated work schedule, but that doesn't make them a cult. Flight attendants and airplane pilots are away from their families most of the year. Is Delta Airlines a cult?

>reeducates you on how to speak (especially to Outsiders)
WWE being particular about commentary or using particular buzzwords isn't "reeducating you how to speak." Using the word "medical facility" instead of hospital isn't the same as when Scientology uses phrases like OT-8, SPs, tech, or Squirrels. On top of that, the ENTIRE wrestling industry relied on carny speak for decades. Words like kayfabe, blade, finish, mark, green, job, etc are all carny speak. That doesn't make it a cult.

>and do your job the One True Way
Now you're just making up jargon. Training wrestlers to work to the hard cam side isn't a cult practice.

> teaches you a completely fabricated version of history
Do you seriously think Vince is strapping down wrestlers like in Clockwork Orange and forcing them to watch "The Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior" or the Monday Night Wars series. They're fucking wrestlers, they're inside the industry. They know what's real and what's fake.

>teaches you to hate any level of transparency
WWE wrestlers break kayfabe on social media constantly

> teaches you to look down on all other leagues
WWE wrestlers plug other promotions on social media constantly

>has literally FULL CONTROL over your appearance
WWE actually exerts less control over wrestlers appearances than other TV shows. Jack Gallagher just got several large tattoos without running them by WWE. So did TJP when he was in WWE. So did Bray Wyatt. Most TV stars don't have that kind of freedom.

>feast when you're good and famine (including public humiliation on national TV) when you're no longer in their favor
This isn't cult behavior. It's shitty, but nothing about this is a cult thing.

>relies on your nostalgia, love for wrestling and empty promises to keep you loyal, sure.
Brock Lesnar opening hates wrestling and he's one of their biggest stars!

Insisting WWE wrestlers are in a cult is alarmist, stupid, and frankly insensitive to people who were actually in cults.

Listen to Freddie Prinze Jr on Jerichos' podcast from many years ago, there is a key quotes on there about how Vince treats WWE writing/scripting/the wrestlers
>"You have to play with Vince's toys the right way (the way he wants you to"
Vince is a gigantic enthusiastic manchild with an IRL wrestling figure playset, he is the audience and everyone else is just peaking over his shoulder watchin him play in his little sandbox fantasy world.
The sooner you figure this out the easier is to get off WWE.
