Criticise something that isn't wrestling as a smark

Post by Dolphin Ziggler on Thu 03 Sep 2015, 8:21 pm

Thread I saw somewhere a while ago that I very much enjoyed.

Some examples:

Will this awful Tom Vs. Jerry feud ever Frak end?
Tom is a talented performer and is buried by that Poopie comedy character Jerry each week.
Frak Jerry.

Did WW2 really need the Americans? And Pear Harbor?! Who booked that?! Classic LOLUSAWINS

I don't hate Kanye West the person, I just hate his character.

I think Saido Berahino has good work rate but reports in the sheets about his backstage attitude are a real turn off.

Why am I in some Poopie love triangle feud when I should be getting a major push?

If you ask me Maggie Simpson is not good enough on the mic for her spot.

Miley Cyrus' latest gimmick is just a total rip-off of Madonna's early work.

One Direction followed the A-typical stable formula so to the T its embarrasing. Im just waiting for them to reform to oust The Wanted from the No1.

I was just watching some classics and I still can't believe Jesus' no sell after the Crucifixion

They only put that twist at the end of Usual Suspects as the dirt sheets had got hold of the planned finish.

Still can't believe how badly the so-called "creative team" messed up the Ashes Series. Next to no build-up - you could see a lot of the talent weren't really match-fit...resulted in a lot of botched moves.

What was the idea with stipulating pitches that so obviously favoured one side or the other? Completely took all the drama out of the series which was won before the last match.

The booking was all wrong. Faces that were already well over (such as Joe Root) only got even more over, while some of the heels (notably Mitchell Johnson) were just made to look clownish. Also why was Ian Bell still being pushed? He's a mid-card jobber at best these days and shouldn't be anywhere near a main event. Totally failed to create a plausible storyline IMO...

Taylor Swift is definitely due a heel turn soon.

Arsene Wenger is wrongfully criticised for not spending money, his push for the title will be a slow burn...a very slow burn.

Manchester United is becoming a bit of a joke with it's constant change of members. How are they supposed to generate heat if they keep chopping and changing their members. This is Aces & Eights all over again.

Jeremy Corbyn may sell out bingo halls and community centre, but can he really do it on the big stage and be a major draw for the casuals?

Fellaini's face turn is a good example of what can happen if you repackage a player differently

Is Phil Mitchell a heel or face at the moment?
He's had more turns than Big Show.

I want my gardener to do the job but there's so much heat in the greenhouse. The only way he'll break the glass ceiling out there is if he threw a stone through it.

The Scotland-Germany game was classic underdog story telling, but without the cliched fairytale ending. The plucky underdog took the champion to their limits but in the end, the champions class shone through and the prevailed in the end.

Kinda like Rocky.

When I was on holiday last weekend I went to see Wicked with the missus, overall I enjoyed it but I felt many of the angles were hotshotted and there was too much going on, who was booking this Russo? Many of the characters were so shades of grey it was hard to decide who to root for, chief offender was the Wizard with his swerve heel turn that came with about 3 minutes of build up!

On the positive side the talent really delivered when given time, Emma Hatton in particular stole the show with defying gravity, a real 5* performance that was paced well with plenty of high spots and peaked right at the finish, this song could have main evented any show (apart from Les Miserables perhaps but I'm a real mark for that show) and I thought it was disappointing they buried it pre intermission and didn't revisit it

Another thing that bothered me were the munchkins were too tall, in this business the look is as important as anything and booking them in this role really hurt my suspension of disbelief, say what you want about the MGM territory but like a good lucha promotion they knew how to get the best out of their minis

Finally after the final angle they did a curtain call which completely shattered kayfabe! This isn't NXT thank you very much!

Getting all biblical on yo' asses for a moment...

How badly messed up was Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection?

Granted Judas Iscariot's heel turn was brilliantly executed...though somewhat spoiled by the fact JC predicted in the previous show someone would betray him. Poor scripting right there!

However, the Disciples faction was made to look totally weak and almost irrelevant by the fact they utterly failed to save their leader from the Roman faction. They let him get beat down without even attempting any interference.

Worse still was JC's booking throughout the whole saga. Here you have the biggest face champ of all time, using his Son of God gimmick to heal the sick and feed the hungry, yet suddenly he is competely unable to conjure up any signature moves or finishers to save himself.

He ends up being buried, both figuratively and literally. Its down to his dad (a.k.a The Big G-Daddy) to save him and even then he doesn't so much as return for a grudge match against Judas. I'm thinking a no-DQ street fight would have been great.

Turns out the whole premise behind this storyline is that JC was supposed to die to save mankind (not Mick Foley folks!). I'm thinking having him at the head of an army of avenging angels, kicking Roman butt all the way to back to Italy would've been a far bigger draw. Can you imagine the TV ratings and PPV buy-in for something like that?

Can only think TNA's creative team must've been behind this one. Wink
