Have you watched an Okada match?  The thing that makes many of these matches so amazing "is" the selling.  At the end of Friday's Ibushi match he barely crawled out of the ring and then collapsed during the backstage interview.


Apparently it's changed dramatically from the 90's when guys would get right back up after a corkscrew moonsault.

Ziggler's gonna lose again, isn't he? What a loser.

"Believe that" is a crappy catchphrase.

And having Bryan and Heyman blatantly suck up to Reigns was godawful.

In other news, Bray Wyatt is still cool. Why did they break up the Wyatt Family though? I haven't seen enough of Harper to say anything about him, but Rowan is just sort of doing nothing in that weird trio with Ziggler and Ryback.

Because who knows why the freak...

Harper should have been a believable badass... yet he's become just another guy.

Well that Divas match was a complete freaking waste of time.

I agree with what Brie Bella said about NXT women perhaps not wanting to get called up. They get wasted on the main roster whereas they're a legit part of the show on NXT.

That sucked hard. Not watching Raw again, at least not the full thing.

Apparently Brock was at Raw but they didn't use him. Probably trying to protect Reigns. No matter what the fans will kill him at Mania. They're just delaying the inevitable at this point.

If they turn Brock face at the end of Mania, either by Heyman joining with Reigns, or Rollins cashing in, it won't matter what they do now, fans will be happy.

This thread is so weird to follow with censoring turned on.

The word 'face' and 'heel' show up a huge amount and I still can't quite guess what it's replacing.  That's like 98% of the entertainment value of the censoring though.

There is no censoring. Face is short for babyface and is a term used to describe the "good guy" wrestlers while heel is the term ised to describe the villain wrestlers.

Wrestling observer is reporting that Brock walked out of raw last night.  No further details yet.

So the Intercontinental Champion is intended to be a total loser? In the past week, Barrett has been beaten by R-Truth, Ambrose, and Ziggler, who hadn't won a match in forever. Yeah, it sets up a four-way match between them at Wrestlemania I suppose, but who gives a damn? The champ is a loser and the belt is therefore not worth anything. Also, that Divas match was a joke. Either give them a legit match and enough time to give a good performance or remove the Divas division altogether and keep them all in NXT. That's obviously not ideal, but at least they'd get more respect than they get on the main roster.

the IC title = red shirt on star trek, at this point i thin it has become an inside joke that whoever holds the title constantly jobs.

It's sad how far it's fallen.  I grew up with Razor Ramon kicking ass and taking names with that strap.

Well that changes things. Thanks for the clarification Vega. I think the last time I watched wrestling would have been late 80's Ultimate Warrior era WWF. The 25 years following that were sports free until I discovered Nationals baseball in 2007.

there's a rumor that the reason Lesnar walked out last night is because Reigns failed a drug test and Lesnar didn't want to be associated with him, however the WWE is denying it.
