Regal and JR have been doing
NXT together.

This is acceptable to me.

Daniel Bryan and Kane are on opposite sides of an eight-man tag match in the main event of the house shows leading up to Survivor Series so I don't see that team lasting very long.

supposedly the decision to team them up was a very last second decision (as of this past sunday the plan was kane v bryan at NoC), so can't really take too much from that

Take this as the opportunity to get back to two different commentary teams.

JR/JBL on Raw
Cole/Matthews on SD.
JBL's off climbing mountains, don't see him coming back.

Re: Wrestling- NVG (SPOILERS inside view at your own risk)

Advertised matches for house shows regularly change to fit the story on TV and are rarely good indicators of where stuff is going.

I totally believe them being put together as a tag team was only decided late in the game, partially cos lolwwe its not that hard and partially cos the huge stuff went over huge in the crowd and at home. Like Bryan's title run things seem to have just fallen into place in ways no one could really predict. The fact the prime time players were the number one contenders and seemed likely to take the belts then out of nowhere they just goofed the story with "oh, btw guys, there is another tag team" who then beat them sums up how it was completely outside their plans as soon as last Tuesday.

BTW getting back JBL would be absolutely the right move. Id back Cole and JBL above Regal and JR tbh.

JR/Heyman would be perfect. I wouldn't be surprised if Foley gets the job though.

The last time Foley was on commentary, didn't he decide he'd had enough of being yelled at through a headset, and went off to TNA?

Re: Wrestling- NVG (SPOILERS inside view at your own risk)

Lol, yeah, basically zero chance Foley goes on the table unless he is given an offer he cant refuse combined with a feeling of obligation to fill in for Lawler if he likes him (no idea if they do get along or whatever).

Josh filling in for a few weeks until they work out a more permanent arrangement is the smart money, surely. Maybe cycle in some talent who they have nothing to do with, like they tried with Miz the week previous.

Re: Wrestling- NVG (SPOILERS inside view at your own risk)

I'm being 100% seriously when I say this, they should bring in Kevin Nash and have him do color commentary. He knows about the business, and it would just be funny as hell hearing him constantly put himself over.

That sounds far funnier on a conceptual level than I think it would be once we had to actually sit through more than one episode of it.

Re: Wrestling- NVG (SPOILERS inside view at your own risk)

Wow, I did not think this would actually happen.

Quote:
WWE Hall of Famer Edge opened the show. Lilian Garcia announced his name and the crowd erupted! He started by saying "this never gets old." He talked about how he misses it and he doesn't know what else he wants to do. He eventually introduced a video of Kane and Daniel Bryan arguing about the titles and hugging it out again from Raw. After that video a "Yes" chant broke out.

Edge continued but Daniel Bryan's entrance interrupted him. Bryan started by saying he wanted to correct Edge's use of pronouns and said, "We are not the tag team champions, I'm the tag team champions" over and over again until Edge cut him off. Edge asks how this happened. Bryan says he's one with his emotions. The crowd was hot for this with bunch of "Yes" chants. Edge eventually said, "Excuse me," and Bryan asked, "Do we have to bring up your ex-wife?" Bryan asked "Does anyone really know you Edge"? He told Edge to go back to acting and retirement and said there's nothing Edge or the fans can do to make him snap.

Edge said that sounded like a challenge. Bryan and Edge went back and forth saying "No, it doesn't" and "Yes, it does" until Kane's music interrupted them. Kane said, "Your both wrong because I'm the tag team champions." Kane and Bryan went back and forth as Edge interrupted them. Bryan and Kane said Edge seemed mad and should use Dr. Shelby's techniques to help. Edge ran over what's happened these last few weeks and said Kane is not Barney the big red dinosaur, he's the Big Red Machine. He recalled how they both tortured each other through out their careers and asks Kane if he remembers it. Kane said yes and he has to take care of that right now as Edge removes his jacket Kane holds out his arms for a hug.

Edge hesitated for a while and then Kane hugged Edge.
As they hugged, Bryan started screaming "No!" until Edge told Daniel to join the hug. He started to but Damien Sandow interrupted, saying he was there to help everyone. He said some stuff using his great big words before Edge interrupted and told him to shut up. He said he would rather watch Bryan and Kane hug it out longer than he can listen to Sandow talk. Edge played with the Yes and No's to see who Sandow should wrestle. Booker T showed up on the screen and said Sandow would be in action next against Kane.

Lol at hugging it out being a thing now in wrestling.

They took that ****ty anger management idea and ran with it to the point it is the best thing on the shows. Amazing.

Re: Wrestling- NVG (SPOILERS inside view at your own risk)

So Bryan seriously just turns everything into the best angle in the WWE. First him fueding with Henry as the David vs Goliath type storyline, then he even got a great fued out of Big Show, then he had turned losing in 18 seconds at WM to being the most over guy in the company, then he got a great series of matches out of Punk and developed a cool storyline with AJ helping to get her over, and now he turned what should have been a ****ty one week video segment into a great angle that is helping make the tag team titles matter again. Dude is legit awesome.

seriously. its just sick scary how good he is.

one problem i think he may face in his career is actually being too good at turning **** in to gold, and thus not needing the wwe title, similar to y2j. he basically guarantees to make any midcard/lowercard awesome which not many guys can do.

also random thought: over the past few months the tag team division is actually the 1st or 2nd best in wwe.

If Bryan takes the Y2J role, as you put it, I will accept it.

Because who got more tv time over the last year, the Y2J role, or the WWE Championship?

Re: Wrestling- NVG (SPOILERS inside view at your own risk)

wwe wants to bring back nexus. to what extent with regards to the members remains to be seen (obv would be a huge step back for bryan/ryback but could be great for others [otunga, slater, black cena])

not sure what the point of this would be for barrett but this would all revolve around him and would push him into the main event
