Random Thoughts/Opinions Thread

This thread is for sharing your thoughts on current storylines/wrestlers or whatever. Wing it and you should be fine. I'll start:

- Wasn't impressed with Natalya's mic work hyping up the Hart Dynasty on ECW this week. Smith and Kidd look to be very solid, though, and I'm looking forward to seeing what they end up doing this year.

- The problem with having people come back and make bold proclamations right away is that they can get injured. Kennedy was just never able to get off the ground for good after his promising start.

- I'm a fan of The Brian Kendrick. Here's hoping he doesn't just get tossed aside again like he did on SD! after a nice little run (ending with him in a title scramble), and that whoever he ends up tagging with is someone that he can work well with. Heck, let's just bring back Paul London and call it a win for everyone. I'd say that The Miz would be a fine partner, but that'd be a step down from where he's found himself lately. Here's hoping they don't screw that up.

- Cena is sliding back into his old ways with the invincibility here, and I'm not enjoying it. If you're gonna have Big Show "destroy" him, make it actually happen.

- Orton needs an interesting feud. Heck, have him face off against HHH again - anything but Batista! From the face side of things, I don't think there's much on Raw...

- Edge needs to hold onto the title for a good chunk of the year. His short reigns just don't do anybody any good, and he's shown that he's more than capable of being a stabilizing force over on SD!

- Speaking of SD!, the show's been pretty enjoyable since the draft. Edge, Jericho, and Ziggler have stood out to me. Ziggler's a guy I like - I think he can be pretty solid if they build him up over time. CM Punk, meanwhile, is locked into a feud with Umaga that I don't really see the point of. It makes a lot of sense to me to rebuild Umaga as a monstrous heel (like when he challenged Cena for the belt back a bit), but having him end up losing to Punk (which I'm assuming is the end result) would not do much good. Granted, he could probably be pretty quickly restored to monster status, whereas Punk would probably have a harder time recovering from losing in feuds when he's supposed to be stepping into main event status after winning MITB for the second year in a row.


That's all for now, but I'll chime in with more now and then. No need for anybody to put up as much as I've done here - feel free to post a line or two every now and then, and that'll be plenty. TNA thoughts are welcome here too. I might have some of those to share at some point, even if they are an outsider's view (my lack of watching the shows, but keeping up with results all the same).

Re: Random Thoughts/Opinions Thread

- They need to keep the United States Championship on Kofi for a while, it'll do him and the belt some good. I'm curious as to where MVP goes from here, though. Surely he won't be in the main event, but I have to imagine he's moving up. I'm not sure what there is to move up to, though. Orton/Batista/HHH are sure to be dominating the WWE Championship picture till SummerSlam, I'd have to imagine. What feuds are there for him?

- I'm hoping that they slowly rebuild Santino as a credible wrestler sometime in the not too distant future. I thought they played it off pretty well when he faced Chavo a few weeks back - I like the prospect of a hulking up Santino, at least for a little while until he "regains his wrestling abilities." It's cool if they don't, though, I guess. He's on TV weekly, pretty much, and that's terrific.

- The Miz is great.

Re: Random Thoughts/Opinions Thread

I just noticed this thread was here - here are some thoughts:

* I'm so ****ing sick of Ric Flair. I just don't want him on my TV screen anymore. I understand he's a legend and has given so much to the business, but he really does not need to be involved right now. Go overseas already, Flair, and work there.

* Batista/Orton feud is very boring to me. Hopefully it'll be the end of it at Extreme Rules.

* I would love to see the Hart Dynasty eventually move over to RAW and feud with Legacy.

With any luck, Orton's (botched) punt to Flair last night got rid of him for the summer. I'm guessing (hoping?) that Batista/Orton turns into Batista/Orton/HHH by SummerSlam.

Depending on how legit the rumors are about DiBiase leaving Legacy and turning face (slightest seeds were planted this past week - slow build), I'm not sure Legacy vs. The Hart Dynasty will ever happen. I'm hoping that there's some extended success on ECW for 'em (like Kofi had) before they end up winning the tag belts on WWE Superstars - that'll allow 'em to have some leeway when it comes to jumping shows (though they've never cared much about that in the past).

Re: Random Thoughts/Opinions Thread

santino marella used to be hilarious, now hes too old for me to even chuckle.

edge is the best superstar in the wwe right now, and has been for a while.

batista isnt at ortons level in anything, yet he gets a fued with him, thats ridiculous.

wwe need to get some new impressive faces to push, rather than getting random monsters from other countries, they need some new athletic, great wrestling, faces. aj styles type people.

Re: Random Thoughts/Opinions Thread

- Masters coming back amuses me a little bit. I never really minded him as much as others did, I don't think. He needs some tweaking, but he can work.

- Big Show/John Cena needs to be over for good. I'm sick of these two going at each other. Here's hoping Miz feuds with Cena and comes out looking good - it's a bit of a pipe dream, but I'm still hoping for it.

- CM Punk might actually have a nice run as champ this time around. His competition ought to be the likes of Edge, Jeff Hardy, and Umaga - all of whom (maybe not so much Umaga) are a big step up for him from last year's bigger guys like Batista and JBL. Punk should be booked strong - he can hold that belt for a while, giving Edge time to do something without the belt.

- Chris Jericho is now a 9 Time Intercontinental Champion. Yowza. I'm looking forward to the continuation of his feud with Mysterio - it's bound to get better from here.

Re: Random Thoughts/Opinions Thread

I REALLY hate how they dont build up storylines anymore. Kofi is great but they shouldve had him chase the title a few months. Build up MVP as a great champion. Have him defend the belt on RAW every week because he already carried it like it was important to him. Make the fans actually give a damn about a title for once.. SO annoying.

Well, they wasted no time in basically writing Batista out as champ. 5 mins in Legacy attacked him and made to look like they really injured his arm.

ECW is the best brand in the WWE. Smackdown! could be if they took time to formulate a decent long-term storyline.

I concur. I just need to get a satellite dish and dump Comcast (who for the record has the lowest customer satisfaction of any business/agency in the entire United States; lower than that of the I.R.S.) so I can get SciFi H.D.

- Ziggler continues to do good things. Here's hoping he can keep it up.

- ECW is doing what it should be doing, which is good. You've gotta wonder when (if?) they give Kozlov a run with that belt, though.

- I'd actually really be thrilled with Cena winning the WWE Championship at Night of Champions, as I'm done with HHH/Orton. Sadly, I think Orton'll retain.

- Edge's injury is most unfortunate. Jericho/Edge running with the belts, possibly ending up feuding with each other would've been marvelous. Instead, we likely get a Legacy run that's as uninspiring as their first. Blah.

Re: Random Thoughts/Opinions Thread

These W.W.E. finishers keep on getting weaker and weaker. **** used to be awesome with moves like the Jackknife power bomb, the stunner, the tombstone piledriver, the sharpshooter/scorpion death lock, the the jackhammer, the razor's edge, the Angle slam, the crippler crossface, the real liontamer, the F5, the death valley driver, the dragon sleeper, the Texas cloverleaf, the shooting star press, the crossface chicken wing, the evenflow D.D.T., the blockbuster, the flatliner, the steiner recliner, the doomsday device/code red, the poetry in motion, the spike piledriver, etc., etc., etc. Now lame maneuvers like gutwrench powerbombs are finishers. What the hell?
