    Apollo Crews is extremely talented. Very lacking in the character department though. He can do cool stuff. But who is he? Just a guy that smiles who can work. That's it. He does nothing to really define himself. That's what's holding him back.

    Matt Hardy. I don't think the WWE audience or creative really understand it. Only the smart fans do. That's a problem.

    Wyatt. He could've been something special. He's a joke now. Not sure where the fault lies. He cuts incoherent promos and does nothing. His feuds go nowhere and drag too long. It's a shame. But I'm over him. Best thing to do is take him off tv for awhile and hit reset.

    Wish Neville came back. Taking the title off him and put it on Enzo was really stupid. Enzo couldn't work. People tuned out because of the watered down cruisers. They didn't want more talking. I don't blame Neville for leaving.. sucks he's probably going to stay in limbo until his deal runs out.

    Apparently Vince has zero to do with 205 anymore. All Triple H now. Went and watched one earlier. There's definitely a difference. Not sure if I'll stick with it. But I'll give it another shot.

    I think Apollo had potential, the WWE never gave him a gimmick and jumped him too soon, he's the kind of guy that needed to be in NXT another year...

    Broken Matt needs to bring back all the things that made him great like Seņor Benjamin, Vanguard 1, King Maxel, etc... not just do the laugh without wins.

    Wyatt is a victim of bad booking, as many say; after his defeat against Cena at Wrestlemania, he never recovered

    I heard god things about the "new" 205 Live, but i don't think i'll watch, it's far too much wrestling for me every week, i can barely watch RAW as it is (and regret it every time...)

    This weekend was INSANE.

    Friday: I was BACK on IPPV and opened the show with a veteran of the ring, Tracy Smothers, and got my first win within the company, IMMEDIATELY following my win, this happened: https://i.imgur.com/N8XtVlu.jpg !!!

    THEN on the same show, I filled in for the legendary Warlord who couldn't make the show and I teamed with The Barbarian and our unofficial tag team name is "The Powers of Flame"...AND I got paid pretty well!

    Saturday: I made my return to my home company after being MIA since JULY (and before that, the last time I was there was April) They welcomed me home with open arms, both wrestlers, management, and the fans..and I had one of my best matches. The fans were LOUD..I'll DEFINITELY be sharing that one!

    Sunday: I made an appearance at the company where I just turned heel last month. So it was the debut of my heel character..without giving much away, I'm going to try to post the video for you guys..I didn't wrestle, but just established the character.

    life is good.

    Sorry for the double post, Here's some of my videos for the weekend in order they occurred.


    Friday:

    Myself vs Tracy Smothers:

    (he cut a promo for 4 minutes before the show aired on IPPV..so the show literally started with him in the ring and me interrupting NEAT idea.)

    https://youtu.be/riGnXEaoKwA?t=4m10s



    The Powers of Flame (myself and The Barbarian) vs Stateline:

    https://youtu.be/Dh7Z6xkIXDQ


    Saturday:

    Here's my RETURN to my home fed match *REALLY LIKED THIS ONE* :

    https://youtu.be/UJdc3AH7lNA


    Sunday:

    Came out to address why I turned heel after my buried alive match, Debuting a new attitude and look... but don't get your hopes up on the explanation

    Rich Swann has been released. Kind of odd, since he was cleared of all charges. Usually, WWE lets the issue die once the person in question is cleared.

    Maybe both WWE and him got into an agreement, Cruisers future doesn't look too bright anyway and Swann lost some important TV time, so i guess the WWE thought i was better to cut him...

    The Man Who is Fond of Slapping Nutz is going to the WWE Hall of Fame: https://www.cagesideseats.com/wwe/20...ass-2018-strut



    I don't give a fuck who you are. That asshole is a bum. Good in the ring, decent on the mic but nothing really special. He is a fucking con artist that conned his way into making Meekmahan pay a shitload of money. Conned the WCW into making him the world champ at a time when the company was losing a shitload of money. He claimed to be a big deal and claimed to draw more money than Hogan which is such bullshit as he never drew a fucking dime.

    I like Jeff, Jeff has always been nice to me. That's all I base on my likes/dislikes. Don't care if it's an unpopular decision.

    very happy for him.

    I don’t like him. Never have. He sealed the deal when he played HHH in TNA (holding better talent down and tainting the world title) from its inception to the also ill fated Hogan/Bischoff era. He is a low mid card guy at best.

    Completely understandable.. in hindsight, I loved his world title hogging, as it made aj styles a dude for dethroneing him (if I recall correctly) it was just done at the wrong time as HHH was doing the same thing.

    I've always liked Jarrett and in my opinion he deserves to be in the HOF (Certainly he deserves it more than Drew Carey...)

    I guess he's a "guilty pleasure" but i do considered him a great heel and IC Champ, that's more than enough still i'm shocked that McMahon wants him there after firing him on live television.

    People seem to love to hate on WWF circa 95/96, but for me, those were the years I was into it the most.

    Anyways, I was watching Summerslam 96 and towards the end of the main event, there is a shot of Jim Cornett and right behind him is a dude wearing the salt trails/teeth TDS shirt and the guy next to him had the Further Down the Spiral 1995 shirt on. (nin spotting 21 years late).

    Earlier there was a kid with the classic Marilyn Manson blue TV face shirt too.

    Just something kinda cool about spotting stuff you have in your own closet (I have all 3 of those).

    I love the whole 97-98 era (that's when i really started to watch the WWE as a "serious fan"), but i also have fond memories of the previous years.

    At that moment i used to watch Lucha libre mostly, but i would switch the channels and i liked that era, mostly guys like Bret, Goldust and The Undertaker.

    Looks like we're in for a pretty interesting month of WWE. I'm actually excited to watch tomorrow night. Lol Roman wins, but the rest of the show is pretty solid. need to catch up on my njpw as well.

    Bullet Club is going through a split all because of Cody as I think the All-In show will have Cody vs. Kenny Omega for control of the Bullet Club.

    I know Cody and Omega are having a go in April. I'd be amazed if they drag it out until September. They're now teasing Omega/Kota and the Bucks.

    I just saw the new episode of BTE and it is clear Cody is stirring the pot as the Bucks and Omega are now having issues with Omega now siding with Ibushi. It makes me sad. Since tonight is Elimination Chamber, why waste our time watching an event in which we know the outcome of who will face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania. Instead, let's watch.... a new episode of BOTCHAMANIA!!!!!!

    Elimination Chamber is looking very predictable tonight. I hope I'm wrong. Anyway, my predictions:

    The Bar retain over Titus Worldwide.
    Asuka over Nia
    Matt Hardy over Bray...or Bray over Matt..who cares?
    Alexa retains in Chamber
    Roman wins in Chamber

    Yeah it's pretty predictable. I think it'll be a good show though.

    Asuka over Jax
    Hardy needs to win. But I dunno... They're stretching it to mania.
    Bar Retains
    Alexa Retains
    Roman Wins. But it's weird considering what they're doing with Rollins and considering how crazy over Braun is right now. It should be Braun or Rollins.

    They will set up the mania match/debut for Rousey. Probably the mixed tag match against Trips and Steph. No clue who her partner would be though.

    Mania is looking to be very good this year. Only shit booking will hurt it. No excuse for it to suck.

    That spot made ZERO sense. Ugh, my keyfabe :'(

    This was proper shit. Bayley has to be the thickest wrestler on the women's roster. It's beyond me how her character has even the capacity to remember to breath.

    Okay, this is a funny promo. There was something good to this match after all.
