Armageddon Was By Far The Worst Of This Year!
Evoloution captured ALL of the titles but the womens I thought my boy Kane would win Not to mention the crappy last min. booking
Triple H has the belt again? Hey, look.....there went my interest.
That Vince couldn't give two shits in an outhouse about using talent, unless it's homegrown, as in he made them stars, not ECW or WCW...
Triple Growth Hormone has the belt again, and it sickens me, as Goldberg was at least over...
Ah, well....let's all sit back and watch the ratings plummet even further....
I believe it was scripted this way so the fans would be more interested in watching the next day's Raw to see if Mick Foley will fix the situation by giving the Dudley's a Table match, giving Rob Van Dam a Ladder or a TLC match and setting up a huge match for the Royal Rumble. Plus, Kane and Goldberg might have a no DQ contenders match on Raw. The script writers have to keep you passionate about WWE, so they get you angry at a PPV.
I agree. It stunk! Triple H no longer deserves a belt...any belt. He's not in shape (They should rename him Triple X if it wasn't already taken.), doesn't sell moves any more and doesn't seem to care about being there. Some of the other guys are just as bad. If I were Vince, the only ones to get air time would be those who earn it. That's how it used to be. Keeping prima donnas around becuase they're family or have some pull with someone doesn't draw a crowd. A good show does.
Rajee may be partially right in his expectations. But, frankly, I don't think we'll see much change. Pitty!
I'm taking time to do just that...and trying to get our lives back on track.
I do not know if the problem is just vince himself. I do not watch raw much but i swear i am watching a bad edition of nitro most of the time. I like that there are so many wrestlers but they do not do nothing. I mean they got all these hot women. give them ecw style hardcore matches and people will watch. You got the dudleys and everytime they get hardcore they get beat. Also where are the submission matches like valentien and garvil had at rumble a few years ago?
The other thing that is wrong is that people are comparing now to the time when stone cold made it big. When wrestling was big i nthe 80's i would go to the historic spectrum and unless hogan was there the place was half empty. The funny thing was it was still considered a big success. I think people were satisfied with this and haivng the wwf come aorund every month. then when stone cold got big and cable was finally in every home, things changed. suddenly you sold out arenas. it was cool to wear wrestling shit in public. in my day you walk around with a hulk rules and you were crusing for a brusing. wrestling got so big that it had to come down a little. Now instead of looking at everything, people compare today to that one spec of time when the poularity soared. if you compare it to early 90's or 70's or even 60's wrestling is much better today. however when you consider it only against its pinnacle then everything looks bleak.
Now if vince wants to fix things so to speak, i say get rid of bischoff. I also think they need to have more technical matches that go the distance. Scott Steiner is a great grappler. Why not have steiner and flair, or steiner and beniot in a match that goes 30 or 40 minutes and has no cheating or interference. I also tihnk the hardcore got to be ecw style. When holly and snow battled all over arena it was cool. even road dogg on drugs in the back battling guysd was cool, but now there is no real hardcore violence. another thing is cut down on brock. he is a great athlete, but i do not need to see him constantly.
I would also increase the women's divison to make it more competitive and have much more women in it. also vince needs to finds a guy who is ready to be a star. Cena is getting there but Vince needs to create the next hollywood hulk hogan now to bring ratings and attention back to the 1998 and 1999 levels that everyone compares it to. The last thing i would do is cut out some pay per views. by having so many, they lose there speciality. If you go back to the main four or five then it means something grand again.
That just my thoughts. What are yours?
Huh? HUH!?! Whe're my freaks at!?!
Aaaah, Steiner, he's the man. A broken man mind you, he's raken a battering during the course of his career and he's not getting any younger, so I dont think he should be allowed any "prime-time" events, certainly not against the likes of Benoit, who MUST win the title soon, because god knows he's worked hard for it.
Anyway, can't comment on Arm, since us Brits were somehow denied access to it by Sky. Not sure why, might have had something to do with the Boxing match that was going down at the same time. Anyway, I figured it was going to suck, on the account that Tripple H was present. Go figure. RVD lost? Damn. Another guy who deserves more than he gets.
On a happier note, all is well in Raw....we have the Rock and Sock connection re-astablished, so much humour to come methinks
Btw, Bigshow needs to change proffession from wrestler to stand-up, that rap-war with Ciener (ack, sp) was hilarious
Aaah, the joys of make-beleive Gladiator...

Yeah, I agree, Armageddon was terrible. However, and Lazarus can attest to this, wrestling renovates itself over and over. The good thing is, Royal Rumble is only a month away, and they will have fixed it by then. HHH wont have the belt long, I promise you that. What you guys fail to understand, and Laz you can chime in too, it takes time to develop a good storyline. It takes patience to get it just right. You forget: In 1995-97 WWE had a down period then too, until 98 when it went through the roof. Give it time. Yeah, I hate HHH with the belt too, but whatcha gonna do. Remember, the RAW after a pay-per-view is really good, so wait and see
goodness will guide me when love is inside me...until then, life is a PARADE!!!!
I heard a rumor that Evolution is going to turn on HHH cuz like maby austin will return or someting, and they will all have to defend there titles EVERY member of Evolution will retain but HHH and they become all like: We dont need you anymore HHH, perhaps theyll cost HHH the title on acident then from there it will lead to chaos. But yea I don't see HHH with another long title streak he has movies to film I belive.
expect a 30 minute promo with evolution as soon as raw starts. Something along the lines of bla bla bla we all have the belts, tri-fecta...bla bla bla
I still think someone is gona loose there belt tonight... and I also think Austin will be there.
I also thought "Armageddon" stunk, as well. The only thing that was entertaining was J.R. and The King's bantering back and forth.
There's no way that Ric Flair and Bastista are going to be an active tag team. Shawn Micheals had a good match, It didn't look like Booker T. was even into his match, unless he was under the weather.
And we really didn't need to see Triple Cheese....oops..I mean Hippo Hearst Hemsley regain the championship belt. But I guess you get what you want when you're the boss' son-in-law.
Actually I thought Kane was very impressive last night, in his moves and facial expressions, which were priceless at some points.
All in all, a very lackluster PPV, and for you folks who missed it, not to worry, they're going to rehash a couple of last nights matches on RAW tonight.
Future events such as these will affect you in the future.
*Prays that HHH loses the title tonight*
WTF Foley got spit on and left the arena and worst thing is we have to wait 2 weeks to find out whats up! man its like a cliffhanger!

Go to Bay city High School in Michigan. Check out the Steiner Brother pics when they were wrestling as seniors in the 150 pound weight classes. Then add 20 years of steroid use to their physiques.
