In Topic: Bobby Heenan RIP

Lust Hogan that was an amazing post. I have never seen a Typhoon match, but now I may have to after reading those hilarious Heenan quotes.

 

Bobby The Brain reminds me so much of my Uncle Mike. Their sense of humor is so incredibly similar. I just love that style of humor. Heenan was a part of my childhood as the announcer for Nitro and now going back to watch AWA & WWF 80s he is a great part of my adult life. There are very few pro wrestling personalities that could have been stars in other fields, but I agree with the sentiment that The Brain could have been a break-out standup comedian. I will say I am much happier that he was in the greatest entertainment field of them all Bobby the Brain. Thanks for all the memories. RIP The Brain.

As a WCW diehard, this brought a smile to my face. :D I really wish they would bring back the Big Gold Belt.

The Drifter is amazing. Future top face or heel. Mark my words. Great prospect.

I actually think Raw has been hitting a nice balance lately where we usually get at least one really good match every week while they still give time to multiple different angles/feuds up and down the card.
 
Smackdown's biggest issue to me is who they're using and who they're NOT using. You have your 2nd worst woman wrestler on the roster as the heel champion, a fun character but bad worker as the heel MITB holder and the other act in the women's division getting the most time is Tamina who is ANOTHER heel. I can't remember the last time Becky Lynch did anything and I know Charlotte has probably not been at TV because she's been with Ric but even before that she wasn't doing much.
 
Then you have Dolph Ziggler getting yet another push while Luke Harper hasn't been on TV in months and even a guy like Sami Zayn, who I'm not the biggest fan of but at least is better than Dolph, is just treading water trading loses to Aiden English.
 
It's no surprise to me that Smackdown house shows aren't drawing because the house show audience is more of a kids/families audience than a hardcore/smark audience and all the acts that could and should draw on house shows (Naomi, Becky Lynch, Sami Zayn) haven't been booked well. I think the only act that really appeals to kids that's been getting pushed well on Smackdown is The New Day and they're still just a midcard tag team/trio.


These are all really good points! The Smackdowns women division booking is baffling. Becky is most over female on either roster. Sasha & Bayley have been getting mixed to no reactions. Lack of use of Becky is silly.

Jinder mahal is dreadful. Boring on the mic & in the ring.

New Day vs USOS has been incredible. AJ IS God. Owens/McMahon has been great past two weeks.

Thin roster but they should be doing better. I think the format of the show is good just need to plug in the right people.

Wrestling tv shows should be mostly talking. Smackdown is doing a good job. Short sprints and quick promos, one major angle and an overarching story are nice. Too much wrestling waters down the PPV and good long tv matches. RAW trots out Finn/Bray on go home show and they have a carbon copy of the match six days later. IF wrestlers actually had matches that built on each other and/or were different it would be ok. But with wrestling being so same-y, the old school SD! Approach of Angle development and lots of talking and building to the long matches is refreshing and more entertaining.
