    To me, all it does is make the product seem even more plastic than it already is. I can live with the PG limitations, and what comes along with it, but that's enough. I don't need another aspect of PW that makes me feel like a complete fucking retard for watching it.

    I don't know if you watch TNA, but they do a similar thing, where they try to make their promos look like Hollywood productions. They had this angle, where Sting and Hogan were "taken hostage", by some soon to be forgotten stable, and they staged some scenarios to look like a scene out of Sons Of Anarchy. Everything was done, like a scene from a movie.

    I just can't suspend my disbelief that much. It all just looks fake and stupid, like Troma was the production company.

      I am guessing you mean this? I rarely watch TNA, but that promo was awful, as you said looks fake and stupid.

      I agree that the shaky cam makes the it makes the product look even more plastic and fails in its attempt to create an aura of chaos.

      This is how you show chaos and a full scale brawl, barely a shaky cam used, certainly not to the extent it has been in recent weeks.

            I won't be paying to see it.

            Few predictions:

            Orton,Sheamus or super Cena wins the Rumble. There's a 1% chance Lesnar may be involved .. But I doubt it.

            The Rock will defeat Punk. It's a shame because The Rock will keep the title till Mania then Cena will more then likely take the belt from him and have it forever.

              Yeah, I'll be watching. I'm just praying that it's not the most predictable RR in history. I doubt Vince has been listening to the fans more recent reactions to Cena. For the past five or six weeks, the crowd hasn't exactly sounded too "divided". He's been getting boo'd out of buildings, and the ending to this past RAW was awkward and pathetic.

              There are so many cool booking possibilities for the Rumble, that if it just plays out like everyone has been predicting for a year, I'm going to pretty damn pissed off.

                It's sad that London got reprimanded for this spot. It's moments like this that make the Rumble awesome. I've always loved the Royal Rumble match and probably still hold it as my favorite PPV of the year.

                  I'm guessing he got punished for showing up the entire roster? Pathetic. I watched that Rumble the other day, and yeah, it was such a cool spot. I think it was same RR that Puder got chopped to death in the beginning, by Eddie, Benoit, and Holly. Now that was gold. Puder deserved every bit of it.

                  Yeah, it's easily my favorite WWE event. I wonder how many old-schoolers we're going to see this year. I'm guessing Backlund, since he'll be there anyways for his HOF induction.

                  There is also rumours swirling that Papa Shongo will make an appearance. I'd love for the ring to clear, and then have Papa Shongo come out, followed by The Boogeyman. Now that would be epic.

                      I just watched that entire rumble maybe six months ago and forgot how badly they pounded Puder Beat the living shit out of him with those chops

                      There's another wrestling show nearby and it's rumored that[SPOILER] Shelton Benjamin and Carlito[/SPOILER] will be in this year's rumble. I'd love to see Backlund in there. He was a favorite growing up when he turned bat shit crazy heel. I think the Papa Shongo thing is a joke by Wade Barrett that he's posted three straight years and some of the websites took it as real.

                        What the fuck happened to Carlito? I loved his gimmick.

                        I spit in the face to those who aren't cool!"

                        He was a pretty good worker from what I remember as well.

                        I didn't know that about Barrett though. I'm still hoping it's true.

                          I'd like to see both of those rumored guys picked up again for another run. There's rumors that WWE is reaching out to old mid card help to assist the current weak roster (which is silly as they have much young talent but need to write solid wrestling storylines for them. Wyatt, Harper, O'Brian, Neville, Ohno, and Graves should all make a major impact if they are booked correctly. They also have Richie Steamboat and Bo Dallas whom they are high on but I think both are shitty.).

                          I didn't know about the Barrett thing till the other day when I read something about it being an inside joke and he's done it for three straight years. Who knows though? They'd probably bring back a toned down Godfather first although I'd much rather see Shango again.

                          I forgot to mention in my last post that London stated a few times on shoots that he was given hell for that spot. It's real fucking sad when they limit their wrestlers to protect the top guys who can't do similar moves. One of the many reasons why WWE is so ass backwards anymore.

                            It's my biggest pet peeve about the industry. That somehow, a mid-card guy showing off his true potential, is damaging to the main event roster. It's such bullshit, old-school nonsense.

                            How dare up and coming wrestlers try to get over. I'd really like to know the logic behind it, and some examples of when it actually hurt anyone in the business. Whenever I hear of this shit, I just picture guys in the back like Patterson, Brisco, Slaughter, etc, saying "Well back in my day, blah, blah, blah..."

                            • I'm pumped for tonight. I'm thinking somehow Punk is walking out champion and sadfully Cena is walking out the Rumble winner.

                                I imagine they gave him hell not because of him showing up the roster, but because it looked like he almost fuckin' died.

                                Anyone but Cena, Ryback & Sheamus and I'll be fine.

                                And I'm 100% sure Punk is going to retain. There's no way the WWE will put the title on him and not show up for house shows for two months. Not that Punk is this huge, amazing draw but I imagine people still pay to see the champion.

                                I see Brock interfering to help Punk.
