Nia Jax finally impressed me! Great performance in that triple threat.

 

Did you not see the gauntlet match?

LOL @ Jinder being squashed. I usually roll my eyes at people who call a heel losing "a squash", but Jinder got two cutoffs in and that's it. It was all Orton, all the time. Orton has been fantastic offensively in this feud. Having fun and kicking ass. Great energy and urgency. Jinder is fucking useless. This made me very happy.

Well, if you can't trust rovert as an unimpeachable news source, then who can you trust.

 

An unimpeachable news source.

Also, I don't really understand this stuff, but I've seen some trained workers argue on Twitter that Nia Jax should not be held responsible for Bayley's injury. Vinny Massaro being one.

Well Vinny Massaro also told me on twitter that the "Manny makes Invader 3 puke blood" angle was a shoot because that's what Manny told him so he's not a great source. From what I've read Bayley was injured by the way she hit the rope when she rolled out of the ring and not by anything Nia Jax did though.

She rolled outside because Nia just dropped her carelessly straight on her shoulder from that double-winged hold thingy. It's very obvious, and ugly, when you look at the footage. (if you can't protect your opponent, you should probably not do the move at all)

 

Then again, if Vinny Massaro says otherwise... Well, wait a minute, who the fuck is Vinny Massaro already ?

Wrestlers take their own bumps. It's on them to land safely. At least that's how trained people usually explain it.

 

He worked in ARSION for years as GAMI, El-P.

I am way funnier than GAMI IRL.

 

Also, I guess those two indian guys aren't very well trained, because Randy Orton sure took great care of them too lately.

Vinny was also the trainer in charge the night Great Khali killed a student in APW. That's a pretty extreme version of "whose fault is it?"

I read a headline "Why has Randy Orton 2017 been so bad?". This is totally ludicrous right? He has been carrying the Jinder feud showing great charismatic energy, working hard and some great babyface shines. I guess Bray Wyatt was shit, but Orton is not a miracle worker.

I agree, that headline is unfair.

 

"Why has Randy Orton's entire career been so bad?" would be much more accurate. :lol:

Seriously, Orton's 2017 is up there with the worst, dullest, most awful title reign ever, with two of the most godawful Wrestlecrap matches and feuds ever, beginning with a useless Rumble win. The Black Hole in his dullest splendor.

And yeah, I'd put that more on Manny Fernandez. He talked for years about having served in 'Nam, despite being in high school when the war ended.

The guys has been a clown since getting in. What would Donald Trump need to do/say to be kicked out or temporarily suspended from the WWE HOF? It seems saying the "N" word would do it, anything else?

Start a thermonuclear war; that is if at that point there still would be somebody around to kick him out of the HOF.

 

But this kind of discussion should be moved to "Pro Wrestling Mostly".

I don't really see why Jinder should even have the belt just because WWE is touring India.

 

I mean they would never do the same thing with the UK so don't really see the big deal in it. Even if they are trying to get a deal done over there just making Jinder champion for the sake of it seems pointless.

 

Id rather Cena have just stayed Champion.

They seem to think that because there's over a billion people in India, it will create a huge market there if someone of Indian descent is champion. Of course they also seem to think that OTT/streaming services have the same level of availability and cultural acceptance everywhere despite having pretty much zero gain internationally on the network outside of the UK.

It's the same thing as 10-15 years ago everybody was saying "we have to get into China". Shane McMahon founded a business on that premiss (which probably has failed, as he came crawling back).

They are already established in the U.K. and they did use British Bulldog as a draw for Summerslam 92. Don't underestimate civic and ethnic pride.
