I don't understand how a grown adult can actually enjoy WWE. It's so beyond corny. And since it's already decided who will win matches, it takes away from any competitive aspect. HOW does anyone enjoy this garbage?
Its real to me, dammit.
Yeah, its a mystery...
i've only watched it once, a few months ago, and it was entertaining as fuck. but i didn't really care for it.
>>177174948What is entertaining about it? The fighting is too unrealistic
>>177174988i dunno. it was way over the top and stupid but i guess that made it entertaining.
Watch aew it's so much better!
>>177174863Bret Hart vs Owen Hart. Stone Cold Steve Austin. Yokozuna's reign. The Ministry of Darkness. Jim Ross becoming the greatest commentator in the world. Vince McMahon elevating himself to despicable stardom for the sake of the company. Shane O Mac. Stephanie McMahon becoming every young boy's fantasy. Razor Ramon vs Shawn Michaels.If you weren't there you'll never understand how good it was. How important it was. It was more than wrestling.
>>177174932The divas don't even show up at half the events, brah. There are way better ways to get some eye candy without having to sit through 80 other minutes of two half naked guys hugging. Try again.
>>177175185Still doesn't discount their presence.
>>177175269I'm saying that there are maybe three people in the world that watch wrestling because of the divas and fewer that would stop watching if the divas left. They only mattered when there were like three different wrestling organizations fighting for the exact same audience and time slot.
>>177175185>There are way better ways to get some eye candy without having to sit through 80 other minutes of two half naked guys huggingYou literally just described UFC and the ye candy either solely shows up at the weigh in's and round card carriers.
>>177175438Stacy Keibler was way hotter than Trish
>>177175438UFC is at least an actual sport.
The average American is like 90 IQ and obese. That's all you need to know
>>177174863I always thought it was cheesy, even as a child
>>177174863>change a few words and this can be a great copypasta for anything.I don't understand how a grown adult can actually enjoy Sopranos. It's so beyond corny. And since it's already decided who will win seasons, it takes away from any of the stakes.HOW does anyone enjoy this garbage?
>>177175528Watching 2 guys hugging on the ground isn't a sport.
>>177175591I don't like corny shows. Sopranos isn't corny though.
>he didn't get hype watching Kane fight for nearly an hour in the 2001 Royal Rumble, eliminating 11 wrestlers over the top rope
Nowadays its corny garbage, pretty much the equivalent of the dance number that every Hollywood movie seems obsessed with putting in the middle of their films. Even the "kino" stories are reduxes of past angles done to less effect, and its all because they cant stop with "tongue in cheek" spots that make it obvious the product is fake. I.agine if zack Baggins constantly looked at the camera and said "remember folks, ghosts arent actually real".Kind of ruins the whole point, right?
WWE is for teens and kids, adults don’t watch it
>>177175528Yeah, regulated by the US government and we all know how realistic they are. And sweaty men grinding on top of each.>>177175719Kane was an absolute beast of that era. Of course, Triple H had to fuck it all up.
>>177175822Apologies. Sweaty men grinding on top of each other with nothing happening is your atypical UFC event. And the fake drama that they do on their Ultimate Fighter series is no different than pro-wrestling; in fact, UFC is what pro wrestling was in the 70s. I went to a live one once; main event was over in 30 seconds. Fucking ripoff.
i just fap to the divas and read the dirt sheets so i can laugh at the behind the scenes drama.kwab
>>177174863It was better in the 80s, 90s and some of the 00s because everyone was off their heads on coke and roids and you would hear about the crazy stuff going on backstage so you never really knew what would happen on live TV. Some of the matches were pretty physical too because there was guys like Vader, Steiner Brothers, Nasty Boys and Road Warriors who would just beat up guys for real.Watching it now, it all seems like a school play and nobody has that old time scary wrestler look like pic related.
>>177177486It's fun if you're a child and also entertained by the Wiggles
>>177174863I'd recommend watching this OPhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rnvSs3HEz2o
>>177177524dude, you watch anime and never touched a woman. If anything, you're the child here.
>>177175591Zoomers don't understand anything except propaganda

>>177174863Did you know there is an entire board for adults who like wrestling? Maybe you should take this up with them.
>>177174863WWE is staged not fake retard, it's literally called entertaintment but they do risk injuring themselves
>>177174932You know there's free porn now right?
>>177177934porn is boring. clothed girls are sexier.
If you're over 12 and like WWE I presume they're a retard
>>177177877Who claimed it's fake? It's just corny to the point of being unwatchable.
>>177174863>HOW does anyone enjoy this garbage?Autists and Mexicans
>>177177975But you watch anime, so you're the biggest retard
>>177175822>Download thisI would if I could. What a beast.
>>177177983the things they do is mostly real and they do get injured but it's still all scripted and rehearsed
>>177174863Unlike the competitive aspect when Spider-Man fights Dr. Octopus?
>>177178144what? that's real and actually happened
>>177175719Including Drew Carey.
>>177174863>takes away from any competitive aspectI've never watched WWE, but you have to be retarded if you think they view it as a sporting event. WWE is closer to theater than it is to sports. They watch it for the spectacle.
>>177177603You've gotta hand it to him.
>>177178192Just not in OUR universe, right?
>>177178275maybe not in yours, pleb
>>177178275no, ours. this one. earth 69.
>>177175554And you're obsessed with Americans and their entertainment. Which foreign shithole are you from, by the way? (notice they never say...)
>>177175066who let her out of stable?
he was like a greek god made flesh perfect in every way. and the perfect intercontinental champion.
It's just another form of entertainment that can be enjoyable. Literally no different than people that enjoy Sports, Disney, Super-Hero, Anime etc.Also seeing it live adds to the enjoyment that you don't get watching it on tv.
I used to love it when I was younger. It’s like live theater mixed with a soap opera. Then I stopped for a while and would pop back in to see what my favorite characters were doing, but most of the guys and girls I cared about were retired or so old they looked like shit trying to choreograph moves and matches. Now the only wrestling show I watch regularly is NXT for Nikkita Lyons, because I think she’s the hottest woman on the fucking planet.
>>177174863Kevin Nash was raped in the sweltering summer of 92'
>>177177015I only recognize this guy from Boy Meets World.I only ever watched Sting and Goldberg
BY THE WAY I DON'T THINK IT WAS A GIRLY OP. I THINK IT WAS A GAY OP
>>177175687>Sopranos isn't corny though.It sure is. In another decade the generation after Alphas are going to call Sopranos campy.
>>177175687It has some pretty cheesy moments. Like Tony strangling the rat in season 1 and not immediately getting arrested by forensic. Or all the dream sequences.
>>177178544The live events are legitimately fun. The actual wrestling is usually pretty meh because they save the big impact and dangerous stuff for tv, but there’s a ton of crowd interaction. The closest thing I can compare it to is an improv show.
Tvetty never drew a dime.
>>177179189Pure fucking dimes
>>177179189the towel toss was so perfect
>>177179446his aura of perfection actually expands into bobby the brain, allowing him to catch the towel.
wwe is literally for children and third worlders, AEW is the adult stuff and is kino
>>177179512do you have the one on big show/giant?
>>177174988Did you know that all the fights in Game of Thrones are predetermined too? You know it's fake, right?
>>177179536you get it, it was like he was connected perfectly
>>177175223Mideon almost died during a match, look that up, they got something around his neck and thankfully another wrestler saw he was really in trouble
>>177179559Aew is if you love blacks and trannies
>>177179559Don’t forget to dilate today
>>177174863I don't understand why anyone who watches this wouldn't just watch mma instead
>>177179768>>177179787good morning sirs
>>177174948Look at all those faggots wearing masks
Give me that damn microphone.Listen up.I'm sick and tired of all you anonymutts runnin' your mouths.Every single day you come out here, you make the same damn threads.

>>177179625So you watch it for the plots and characters?
>>177174863>It's so beyond corny.That's why you can't understand, you're not a grown adult yet.
>>177179809You didn’t even use the meme right you fucking retard, lurk moar
>>177179830Nigga most people are into wwe when they're in grade school just stop
>>177174863you fail to grasp that past a certain point, cheesiness loops around again and becomes pure fucking kinoLet me spell it out for you. Highbrow stuff = good. Lowbrow stuff = good. Middlebrow stuff = trash. The problem with middlebrow stuff is that it's just conscious enough to suppress all the actual unconscious life force which makes art truly transcendent and sublime. Lowbrow stuff has no idea about any of that shit and so the sublime emerges of its own accord quite unconsciously. Highbrow stuff is aware of the dimension of transcendence and (when it is wise enough to stop being pretentious), it's even able to evoke that dimension consciously.
>>177175152>Stephanie McMahon becoming every young boy's fantasy.wut
>>177179828Yes its basically theater for trailer trash
>>177179870Nah, it really is just for retards
>>177179872For me, it was Terri Runnels
>>177175528UFC is fucking gay. WWE is awesome.
Cirque du Soleil for teenage boys
Beta Males watch Fake Fighting Real Men watch Boxing or UFC
>>177179559GAY-EW or All Petite Wrestling is for trannies, faggots, retards, fags and s oys. This thread is about wrestling, not a flippy shitter never drew dimes slap fest tranny rodeo. And I can say that here because if you do on /pw/, the autistic screeching can be heard through the computer screen.
>>177178839the dream sequences are arguably the least cheesy parts
>>177174863>HOW does anyone enjoy this garbageJust turn your brain off bro
>>177175528UFC is not a sport. MMA is a sport.
>>177174863seems like a just a bit of silly fun but i could never get into. dont think its anything to seethe over
>>177179828It's a television show, what else would someone watch it for?
>>177174863Every movie you’ve ever watched was pre determined, most sports you watch are too. Concerts are, tv is, video games are. You’re not nearly as clever as you think you are.
>>177179872Dude, at one point, she was all over televsion. She was absolutely drop dead cute when she first showed up on tv, got frizzy doll like hair and turned into a total bitch, then she got breast implants and ran Smackdown for a while and wouldn't come out to the ring unless she was wearing skintight clothes and revealing outfits. Steph was something else when she was in her prime.
>>177180046This.What's real anymore? Go to the food and cooking board and ask them what fake food is and ask if you ever consumed it. Go talk to /pol/ and ask them just how fake and staged politics, world events and politicians themselves are. Movies aren't real, the orgasms you give your girlfriend aren't real, the news isn't real and is soleley pushing agendas. Most major sports are predetermined too, wrestling just admitted it first.
whats his gimmick
>>177180062Yeah but that was the era of the best looking, most scantily clad divas who often were in sexually explicit matches/storylines. Stephanie just never stood out to me and then she got her horrendous tit job and looked like a joke.
>>177174863Raslin's a rich cultural white art theatre for adults
>>177175438Put your head back down babe.
Unironically ruined by women and minorities
Watch Japanese women's wrestling.
WWE/The Rock/Cena fans should kill themselves
>>177174988>What is entertaining about it?
>>177179559I enjoy AEW and it is absolutely not adult stuff at all. It is the embodiment of post modern wrestling with the emphasis on blurring the lines between kayfabe and reality, spot monkeys, flippy shit, and corporate leftism with unironic transsexuals in the ring.
>>177180283I can't disagree with that, but there was at one time Stephanie being so hot, it was unreal. And even Jericho and The Rock made fun of her biobs getting bigger in a famous segment.https://youtu.be/Ak8eymDrmgQ?t=275The thing with Steph was just how unattainable she was. Everyone else was like you said, taking off theirt clothes but she never did. Cockteasing the audience like that just made you want to fuck her even more.
>>177174863Low iq, high emotional needs, plike a woman watching soap operas.
>>177180614I like these kicks.
>>177180893>top>fat boomers doing rest holds>bottom>gifted athletes putting on entertaining matches that tell a story and performing dangerous movesgotta love the elite
>>177177015My favorite youtube rabbit hole was watching interview with wrestlers from the 80’s and 90’s basically just gossiping and talking shit about each other. I swear to god 75% of them are divas. Anyway I really liked the stories about Haku and how much of an irl badass he was. Apparently one of the Steiners was an infamous tough guy/bully and he was afraid of Haku by an order of magnitude. As witnessed by, I think Jerry Lawler, Haku one ripped three lower teeth out of a guys mouth in a bar fight with one hand. Plucked em right out like he was picking daisies.
>>177177975Nice grammar retard.
Only the golden era was entertaining.
>>177175152I thought his match against GOD was pretty entertaining. That whole segment was great and now that I’m thinking about it, Vince was more entertaining than all his wrestlers combined.
>>177179999The wrestling i guess
>>177181180hhh looking gayer than usual
>>177180046This is an embarrassing low IQ excuse to watch roided ballet dances
>>177174863>fiction isn't real>i am very smartOk?
>>177174863>And since it's already decided who will win matchesBro, I don't want to alarm you, but for most movies and TV shows they have already decided what will happen before they air them.
>>177180046>You’re not nearly as clever as you think you are.And you are an actual fucking retard if you think regular sports being finessed by refs is the same as a WWE stage play
>>177174988Had some cool aesthetics honestly but not anymore.
>>177180156Take your meds anon you're schizo rambling
>>177181049The Elite are fags. Its shit like this that prevents the audience ever growing again or taking wrestling in any semblance of a serious light. Garbage like this is what happens when the marks are n longer in the front row but in the goddamn ring. Meanwhile, they're all literally sticking their thumbs up their asses wondering why the business is fucking dead as a result
>>177180918These are literally soap operas for men with a bit of cirque du soleil thrown in. Its truly gay.
KINO KINO KINO KINO KINO KINO KINO KINOhttps://youtu.be/ASmdxXaOzd4
>>177180893They're literally the same
>>177181362Kiss my ass, tranny.
>>177181049>gifted athletes putting on entertaining matches that tell a story and performing dangerous movesNigga is literally describing the circus
>>177181233i miss the OG warrior sting
>>177181315As opposed to period piece ballet dance, zombie ballet dance, or sci fi ballet dance?
>>177179806AEW is so shit lol their fans would have been bursting out of their seats for a shitter like Jeff Jarrett coming there in the early days now they even bother to pretend. That guy in the Warriors hat was the only person they could pick out.
It's live action athletic drama. If you don't like action films, or fighting games -- you wouldn't get it. Having said that, wrestling used to be worked like a fight, drawing the viewer in. Now it's like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon where it feels floaty, staged, and retarded.
>>177181049>entertaining matches that tell a storyWhy are you queers so obsessed with the "stories" in this shit? It's roided out retards doing a routine not All My Children
>>177181349But he doesn't think that.
>>177181349No, its even worse than that. The orders to predetermine games come from the higher ups.>Hurricane Katrina hits>New Orleans patriots win that years SuperbowlIts ALL fucking Mickey Mouse, pal.
>>177179999Most pro wrestling events aren't televised, in fact going to one of these in person makes more sense than watching it on TV since fan interaction is important. If you're watching this on TV you might as well throw on a Soap
>>177181420>They're literally the sameSure.
>>177174988It’s an extension of theatre combined with some serious stunts and athletics. Real sport fighting is covered by boxing, MMA, judo, etc.
>>177181480Because it gives these faggots the illusion that they're watching an "essential" match. I've never seen anyone pick at a match piece by piece and analyze why this "storytelling" was good because it can't be done. Story in matches is just homos obsessed with theater thinking they can reference one thing that was done in a match prior and it being higher art.
>>177181535Given this is /tv/ I assumed we were talking about the viewing experience on, well, tv. If OP wanted to know about the live experience then why not post on the board dedicated to pro wrestling?
>>177179189Damn he went behind the back too
>>177181535>If you're watching this on TV you might as well throw on a Soaplol you probably thought this was profound
>>177181690he did that a lot but usually, he would catch it himself or let bobby catch it or throw it into the crowd. behind the back towel, throw was a signature move.
>>177181315You're missing the point. Everything in TV and film is a ballet dance, from Play School, Fast and Furious, Taxi Driver, Avengers, even "reality TV" follows a strict structure with a little improv thrown in. Some people find wrestling entertaining knowing full well it's all staged, some people find Blues Brothers and The Departed entertaining knowing full well it's staged. It's entertainment.
I was on the USS Intrepid when Lex Luthor slammed Yokozuna. That moment was so hype and then that motherfucker left for WCW like a month later
American pro wrestling sucks in general.

>>177174863children and low IQ hicks
>>177181798I understand what you’re saying anon but I think you know that wrestling and tv shows/movies aren’t the same thing. I don’t know what the rules are now but decades ago kayfabe was a real thing that was enforced. They wanted people to think it was “real” and many people did.
what if Mr perfect was 7ft tall and completely psychotic?
>>177181880I don't see NJPW anywhere in my post. I also agree with you.
>>177178930I want to go to a "live" event one day. I hear they do stupid shit all the time and break kayfabe so it's actually kinda funny.
>>177174863sounds like somebody who watches How I met your mother and doesn't understand good writing when they see it.
>>177175528I'd rather watch fake stuff than poofc.
>shouts into megaphone>tranny!!
This pic is REAL wrestling not this fag wwe shit
>>177181921>wrestling and tv shows/movies aren’t the same thingWhy not? Because one is done in front of a live audience? Stage productions of Macbeth are fake too but it's still a great time for anyone who goes to watch.As far as people wanting it to be real it depends how invested you want to get. People cheer and cry at movies and tv shows and they're welcome to get that way about them, if a person wants to do the same because they feel that strongly about pro wrestling then they can go right ahead. Most people will call them an overly emotional retard for doing so but it's still up to them.

The ironic thing is that I bet in a no rules/no holds barred fight WWE wrestlers would wipe the floor with every single MMA champion.It'd be like that video of the mountain and mcgregor sparring.
>>177183658>spending money on PeacuckThey censor shit on there, fuck that.
>>177183077The hell it does, jack.
Is he /tv/'s wrestler? Was he dimes?
>>177179792True, they also do obviously fake over-hyped rivalries.
>>177174863Everything you watch is scripted and unrealistic you dumb cunt. And I mean literally everything.WWE is athletic competition that can be appreciated but also leaves room for the imagination and storytelling. That’s it.

>>177184877Define "better shape," because female wrestlers are definitely more athletic these days which is due in part to their superior fitness. If you mean eye candy, I guess that's up to the eye of the beholder.
>>177185119congrats on the brown skin>>177185149I mean the girls were more ripped. I could careless about athleticism and work rate. Giving a fuck about women's wrestling is lower than liking anime
>>177184781According to some rumours, when she was in university in New York, Stephanie would grab guys from the bar and fuck them in the back of her imo, drive them to random streets and kick them out of her car without their clothes on. Straight out of early BangBus.>>177185084According to Lesnar, out of everyone who did arm-wrestling competitions backstage, nobody was able to beat Kane.

>>177185560thick is a generally new phenomenom in wrestling. Mickie James used to be the only one back then. Im saying girls were more ripped and in shape looking long ago. Now they're just kinda bloated looking because that's apparently the new style girls want to go for

>>177174863I don't understand how a grown adult can actually enjoy movies. It's so beyond corny. And since it's already decided who will win at the end, it takes away from any competitive aspect.
>>177177934You know porn fucking killed entertainment as a whole right?Separating shit into highly extreme categories breeds creative bankruptcy, which is why film as a whole is in the mess it is.
>>177185868>we need to make Beef Stroganoff look really strong what should we do>gimmick an ambulance and make it look like he could pick up a service vehiclewew
>>177185893>he doesn’t like thick girlsIs this your favorite wrestler by any chance?
>>177186049never said I didnt like thick girls. The conversation started when some anon said the current girls arent that in shape, and chalked it up to the on the road lifestyle. I just stated that it's always been the wrestler lifestyle, and the girls back then were more in shape
>>177181834>>177181934Sid was good in the ring but couldn't cut a promo to save his life.
>>177186246>couldnt cut a promoonly a person with half a brain would say that
>this made americans seethe uncontrollably in 2001
>>177186104Not that anon but I think it’s just changing times and doesn’t have anything to do with road lifestyle or any of that shit. Fifty years ago Mae Young was built like a shoot wrestler and wore a leotard. In the 80’s girls had giant hair and wore leg warmers like fitness video girls, in the early 90’s you had muscle girls like Nicole Bass and Chyna who looked like powerlifters and broads from gladiators, late 90’s and early 2000’s you had Pam Anderson bottle blondes with fake tits, now you have thick girls trying to look like Kardashians. I’m sure when Sable was around there were guys talking about how much better looking Alundra Blayze and Fabulous Moolah were.
>>177174863attitude era was unmoggable
>>177186305yea I also just chalked it up to current culture of women preferring the thick body style. Back in the early 2000's it was about having a flat stomach and wearing low ride pants. But still, technically those early 2000's girls were more in shape because culture hadnt been hijacked by black twitter and instagram
>>177186371The steroid scandal really fucked everything up.
>>177181049>>gifted athletes putting on entertaining matches that tell a story and performing dangerous moves
>>177186470Literal geeks and faggots, god I wish we could go back.
>>177174863You're really gay.
>>177186470I knew it was going to be a young bucks video before I even clicked on it kek
>>177186594>>gifted athletes putting on entertaining matches that tell a story and performing dangerous moves
>>177185256>YWN get kicked out of Stephanie's Bang Limo.WHY EVEN?
>>177181049Elite are literal fuckin fags who feel the need to run off anyone who makes more dimes than them. Ran off Cody, ran off Punk, kept FTR down, and LITERALLY pulled a championship out of their ass to give themselves because they cant get over as a normal tag team.
>>177185857For me it's Nikki Cross' TIGHT pants.
>The answer is obviously in the E.
>>177174863WWE games are fun
>>177174863Isn't it adults who really appreciate corny things though? Children are the ones worried about things appearing 'cool'.
>>177174863manchildren, same people who like funko pops and marvel movies
I stopped watching in 2001 and only revisited it in 2019. I didn't even know WCW went under around that same time and I loved the hell out of it which tells me where things went with professional wrestling after it died.
>>177178501Mr. Perfect was DIMES incarnate. Him and Rick rude were two guys that deserved the strap more than ANYONE. They could work their asses off, cut promos, put asses in seats. Also everyone backstage loved them and respected them.
>>177181934Lmao sid couldn't lace hennig's boots. Perfect could wrestle an hour without repeating any moves, then cut a ten minute promo that would tear the roof off. Sid is just a loveable retard. Couldn't work for cut promos to save his life.
>>177187395Nah, wrestling fans know that what they’re watching is scripted nonsense, enjoy it anyway, and are usually willing to laugh at how silly it can get. People who watch capeshit treat it like a religion and ree at anyone who dares to criticize their three hour long action figure ad. True about the funko pops, though.
>>177188305This. Wrestling is kino. It lies somewhere been live theatre, combat, soap opera, and daredevil acrobatics. You shut your brain off and watch a guy get dropped on his neck. Meanwhile capefags and lotr nerds act like their shit don't stink. At least I admit wrestling is childish fun. Your capeshit is literally intended for kids.
Wrestling's based and redpilled.
>>177174863They're telling a story, you dumb smark
>>177174932trish has been gone for years. all the hot women were replaced by ugly women such as pic rel
>>177188513yeah it was. not anymore. the queers took over that too now. we can't have anything anymore.
Ecw was so fucking based brehs It's a Shame nothing like that will happen again
doesnt the smashing pumpkins guy own a wrestling outfit?>>177178205its always been sports ENTERTAINMENT according to mcmahon.>>177181117theyre all fags.
What time is it in Canada, PPP?
take the Puroresu pill
>>177174988>The fighting is too unrealisticDepends on the wrestlers and the match setting really. Some companies and wrestlers tend towards a more realistic style with more actual wrestling/grappling and striking more than your typical hokey cooperative wrestling moves. But when it is over the top, it's dramatic enough to suspend your disbelief, in the same way it is with say a superhero movie where the fighting is equally ridiculous. It's just a different brand of capeshit I guess.
I miss the Attitude and Ruthless Aggression era.
>>177190320Eh. I prefer golden era and attitude but that's just what I grew up with. By the RA era, I'd moved on. I'll still go back every now and then and watch some 80s kino with dusty or ric or chief wahoo. Those old dudes would beat the living piss out of each other
>>177177934Porn is cringe, boring and fake as shit. Like any healthy man I'm more aroused when I meet or see a smoking hot chick in person than I am watching porn, and seeing a girl in wrestling, on TV, or whatever else is closer to that than porn is
picrel was the best era of wrestling
>>177178205It used to be played as a legitimate sport up until like the 60s I believe, and kids still thought it was real until like the 90s. But yeah nowadays even children know they're just watching a show.
>>177177776Lmao they never were and never will be
I don't understand how a grown adult can actually enjoy film/television. It's so beyond corny. And since it's already decided what the story is, it takes away any surprise aspect. HOW does anyone enjoy this garbage?
>>177179828Mostly yeah but you want good wrestling too. Kind of like a kung-fu movie, there's the plot and story but you still want the action to be good.
>>177174863I listened to a philosophy podcast once that talked about a philosopher who looked into why people watch this shit, can't remember who it was. He says that there's always a "good guy" and a "bad guy" in WWE. The bad guy breaks some rule of the game to give himself an unfair advantage, but in the end, the good guy wins. Everyone knows it's theatre, but it's not about authenticity. The spectacle gives its spectators a sense that justice will always prevail.I've never actually watched WWE so I'm not sure how accurate his analysis is.
>>177188014that's basically what I was saying what if retarded tall Mr perfect.
>>177181637>I've never seen anyone pick at a match piece by piece and analyze why this "storytelling" was good because it can't be done. Story in matches is just homos obsessed with theater thinking they can reference one thing that was done in a match prior and it being higher art.I won't disagree there. Although there is often some storytelling within a match, it's usually sporadic at best. Wrestling fans place far too much emphasis on this. You would usually start a match with some storytelling, let's say some age-old partners become rivals, they start with some back and forth grappling and neither can get the other hand because both has the other's number. Retreat to a staredown, crowd cheers. You will get a few moments of story like this littered throughout a match but mostly separated by generic wrestling stuff and some resting. There is very rarely an overall consistent narrative within a match that makes sense, it's not quite shakespeare like some fans would have you believe. Most of the story is told outside the matches.
I 'watch' it on youtube for the women wrestling only.
>>177184877>this isnt an excuse. the girls from 20+ years ago were in much better shape than the new girlsIn better shape as in fitness model type shape? Sure, not athletically though. And this is because they didn't have to wrestle and travel 5 nights a week so could spend more time on their diet and workout. And in terms of attractiveness, every single one had the 30-year-old fake tits blonde bimbo look, which was going out of fashion as I came of age (born in 92) so I guess my personal taste is skewed towards the more varied newer women. Although that look does seem to be coming back with the zoomer generation.
>>177174863why do you watch any tv show? retard
>>177186470How can anyone like these guys? They are a comedy act, every single match is a comedy routine, and yet they view themselves as main event stars. Imagine if Too Cool were top stars instead of jobbers from 1999-2006.
>>177190825no one besides trannies and redditors like those fags
>>177189364Its great it happened at all.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0rUr7DofFA&ab_channel=andreasarti
So funny whenever we get a wrestling thread on /tv/, it’s just like /asp/ before AEW started and the fags from twitter invaded
>>177190928I miss /asp/
>>177181049WE REPRESENTTHE LOLLIPOP GUILD
WWE is delivering great shows this year.I love the basic conflict between good vs evil, sport entertaining and funny storylines.
>>177179650You're thinking of Gangrel, Mideon actually saved him.Also, Mideon's a chef these days which is interesting.
>>177190928The final death of /wooo/ also saw an influx of fuckers who are only into making Jap slut wrestler threads anD freaking out when there isn't some greasball hamplanet named Spardot policing everything they do and say and the estrogen levels haven't lowered since.
>>177191273I had to stop posting on /pw/ because it's just gookfags and their stupid coombait joshipro threads. We need a containment board for people with a slant fetish. Kpop, joshipro, etc. Let them waste all day jacking off to planks that look like little boys
>>177174863It's not sports. It's loosely scripted theater with improvisational fight choreography and dialogue. You don't think these dudes performing death defying stunts simulating fighting every week, live, in an audience of millions while improvising their dialogue and personalities for your entertainment is impressive?
>>177190709I agree with you completely, and this is basically my issue detailed with what is referred to as "storytelling" in matches. I thought Cody doing the Stardust thing was cool and that's the same amount of storytelling as any other highly rated match before it. It's insanely overstated when it comes to rating a match and yeah, you're right, it's all promos which contain most of the story. I can not take it seriously when the Meltzer crowd claims Kenny/Okada, despite being fantastic matches, so amazing simply because of the "storytelling," which is normally why the matches are rated so highly. It's only because they had matches prior to their last.
>>177191273Used to be the anime boards but that clearly isn't e-fucking-nough.
>>177191398meant for >>177191313
>>177190928not enough 24/7 hotshot segments for ya, dronie?

>>177191614fuck even the intros were infinitely more dimes back then. take me back
>>177192159Guy needs a vidya
>>177192180Comedy writers went to wrestling after Writer's Guild Rally
>>177192245yea i mean during the AE the head writer was just some superfan so it had so much more soul than this current piecemealed product
>>177192219there's a recent game that came out that features a character close to him combined with Desperado
>>177192164We kinda alreadyu have one and he made 2 slasher movies of his own.
