I don’t find this “Titus World Slide” thing funny at all. Whether it was staged or not, it’s been beaten to death by commentary, WWE themselves. Maybe it’s because I wasn’t watching live. And I’m the first person to laugh when someone falls. I used to rewind back and forth and crack up on WrestleMania 20 when Ultimo Dragon slipped on the ramp
The DUMBEST thing WWE does is book matches before a brand split/shake up. It usually gives away the outcomes on matches for the few weeks following. We all knew Wyatt/Hardy were winning the tag titles. We all knew Jinder & Miz weren't winning back the mid-card titles. And nether Roman nor Joe can afford a loss at the moment. It's dumb and I hate it.
Speaking of the brand split, I don't like having Graves doing both shows. Booker isn't the best, but give him the SD spot.
Well this is more of a NJPW opinion but Okada is severely overrated. I don’t get the hype as I just see him as NJPW’s version of Roman Reigns. He’s corporately created and it comes off that way, plus he would be much better suited as a heel.
I’d like WWE to be less of a cartoon and incorporate more of MMA and enhance its realism. I miss kayfabe.
It won’t change a thing. One you learn that Santa is gimmicked, Christmas never feels the same. That can be applied to wrestling. Once that magic is removed, its harder to get lost in the mystique. Thats the beauty of the indys. We can appreciate the in ring action and stories more because we can feel their hunger for the top. WWE feels like they’ve made it, now they must mantain.
My unpopular opinion is that Shinsuke Nakamura sucks but the more I think about, he's just the ultimate finesser.
He knew that Wrestle Kingdom 9 was going to be the first time many people watched him, so he had an incredible match with Kota Ibushi and proceeded to phone it in for the rest of his New Japan career.
Then, he knew that TakeOver: Dallas was going to be the first time many new people watched him, so he had an incredible match with Sami Zayn and proceeded to phone it in for the rest of his WWE career up to this point.
