down below because I’ll be replying to people FROM OUTTA NOWHERE. And to celebrate the start of this most festive
of months with it now fully being Christmas season – here’s a photo of Braun Strowman
dressed as sexy Santa. You’re welcome. And on the first day of Christmas, Braun Claus
gave to me… WWE Make A Good PPV Poster
A genuinely cool poster for TLC. After a bad 2018 for WWE’s marketing department
– whose feats included this poster for October’s Hell in a Cell, and the rather-too-real tagline
‘Respect Is Out The Window’ for the controversial Crown Jewel event – they’ve finally put
together an awesome Western staredown-inspired poster for December 16th’s TLC pay-per-view,
which will feature a triple threat TLC match between Becky Lynch, Asuka and Charlotte for
the SmackDown Women’s championship, posting the image with the tagline “Full focus. Full history-makers” …whatever that means. So close, marketing department. A much better tagline, given the Sergio Leone-inspired
design, would be The Good, The Bad, and Whatever Confusing Babyface/Heel Character Charlotte
Has. The three-way is easily the hottest match
in WWE, largely thanks to Lynch being the most over star in the company. Real Reason WWE Raw So Bad
…and also because Raw has had two of its worst episodes ever since Survivor Series,
with its main event storyline being a lacklustre Baron Corbin and Braun Strowman feud, with
the latter not even there, its most emotionally engaging program, between Dean Ambrose and
Seth Rollins, now mostly based on Ambrose being the Lunatic Germaphobe who gets injections
in his butt, much of the heat from Nia Jax giving Lynch a concussion evaporated and literally
piss-poor comedy from …Drake Maverick urinating on Bobby Roode’s robe. Last Monday’s episode was so bad, in fact,
that popular German newspaper Bild Zeitung called it one of the worst WWE shows of all
time and advised fans not to watch the Wednesday broadcast in the country. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter,
it appears we have Vince McMahon to blame for the show’s lack of logic, heel dominance
and juvenile toilet humour – as he “got restless and wrote much of the show himself”. Speaking of getting restless… because I’m
really good at Segways. …we’ve had our latest sign that Chris
Jericho is on his way to IMPACT Wrestling. Jericho has had a rather busy 2018 – showing
up for three different promotions that we know of, and potentially hundreds more dressed
as Pentagon Jr. He featured on Raw’s 25th Anniversary show
and Greatest Royal Rumble for WWE, he won New Japan’s IWGP Intercontinental title
in June, which he’ll defend against Naito at next month’s WrestleKingdom 13, and he
attacked Kenny Omega at September’s All In. He even ran his own show in international
waters, hosting wrestlers from ROH, New Japan, IMPACT and more on his Rock ‘n’ Wrestling
Rager at Sea cruise. But despite saying in interviews that he wouldn’t
wrestle for any non-WWE promotions on US soil out of respect for Vince McMahon, recent reports
say that stance is softening – and now he’s posted about meeting with IMPACT Wrestling
officials over the weekend. “Great time hanging and chatting with IMPACT
Wrestling President Ed Nordholm and Co-Executive Vice Presidents Don Callis and Scott D’Amore
last night in Toronto” While this could be just a meeting between
real-life friends Jericho and Don Callis, having IMPACT President Nordholm along implies
this was a business meeting – and it builds on Callis often name dropping Jericho on IMPACT
Wrestling shows. Which 10 WWE Wrestlers should go back down

    Dean needs to be More like Brian Pillman… That is his character. He was more crazier on the independents… it's sad.

    Asuka is there to just take the pinfall… You know it, I know it, everyone below me in the thread know it…

    Charlotte is going to win by pinning Becky.

    Bets invited.

    Vince is out of touch, and this a perfect example of him proving that point right. He's done alot of good for the business over the years and is one of the most important figures in history, but it's clearly time for him to retire. Oh and boot Kevin Dunn too

    But having an asshole scresming yes when hes a face or no when hes a heel is not juvenile?having another uncharismatic ass paint as Venom and claiming to have superpowers (which apparently are that he jumps more?) Is not juvenile??!!having a redhaired asshole dancing when entering the ring is not juvenile? Strawman talking like an 80s villain? Styles saying the same fucking thins every single week?

    put Becky's eyes on the bottom of the poster and caption it:

    The real reason is because Vince surrounds himself with glad handed nonsensical douchebag yes men who tell him everything that he wants to hear. Kurt Angle must have told Chris Jericho that TNA is hiring.

    Vince seems to being doing like all the other old powerful men in his generation and refusing to accept that change is a thing. What worked 20 years ago won't get over with today's crowd and he just can't deal with it.

    Vince wrote the show? You don't say. Honestly, I hope this AEW or whatever it's called is real and gets a big money investment and national TV. I would gladly support it. WWE is just painful to watch and I'll gladly point my eyeballs somewhere else. I just want good wrestling matches and good, logically told stories and some consistency week to week. To have the depth of talent that WWE has and watch them do nothing with it year after year is beyond frustrating. WWE has become WCW. They only focus on older guys just like WCW mostly focused on the nWo. You've got a bunch of guys organically over like WCW had Jericho, DDP, Benoit, and Booker T and they are stuck in the midcard. Like Seth Rollins, Finn Balor, Elias, Samoa Joe, etc.

    What of Jericho keeps meeting with Impact because he's trying to use Impact as a base for AEW? Impact is looking for new TV, AEW needs TV and a Roster. Jericho can use the growing buzz around impact and TNA/GFW/Impact could use a fresh name/new start.

    Just a thought.

    THIS IS THE GOOD NEWS OF WHAT GOD DID THRU JESUS FOR US: JESUS DIED FOR OUR SINS BECAUSE WE ALL FALL SHORT OF HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS BECAUSE WE ALL SINNED SO WE ARE CONSIDERED UNHOLY. BUT JESUS TOOK OUR PUNISHMENT OF DEATH THUS PAYING THE PRICE FOR SALVATION AND ETERNAL LIFE THRU HIM. SO WE DONT HAVE TO SUFFER IN HELL. YOU JUST HAVE TO TRUST & BELIEVE IN HIM AS SAVIOR & AS THE ONE TRUE WAY TO THE FATHER, GOD FOR THIS WONDERFUL GIFT OF PROMISED PARADISE. LET THE LORD BLESS THRU THIS MESSAGE

    Fire the whole damn Raw Creative team and handover it to the man with 3Hs. Meekmahon can retire. Follow by the replacement of the Raw GM. Woken Matt will be a good option. Raw will be slowly be back on track.👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

    Raw is terrible because they aren't even trying. You wouldn't have seen this during the Monday night wars. He has no competition and it is destroying the product. Hoping Elite can make a competitive run.

    Jericho has been trolling going to Impact for years now. I remember when his band Fozzy did the theme song for a ppv and people thought he was going there. I hope he finally do go to the Impact promotion even if it’s for a short time.
