Dear The Miz, part 2

internationalobject:

Stroud:

Your job is based on a really unique, cool interpretation of art and human emotion, executed by incredible athletes performing a show that ends their lives prematurely to the delight of everyone who can get past its illegitimacy, but it is also racist and terrible most of the time…

This is the part where I say “great minds think alike”, but I think I’ll just say “it’s cool when someone else also isn’t an asshole and likes the same thing you like.”

What “Injustice” did John Cena do to cause The Shield to come and attack him?

everykissbeginswithkayfabe:

wwe-espn-nascar:

he’s in a match with Big Show… 

there’s your injustice folks. a warranted attack

It wasn’t Cena they were punishing. It’s the WWE constantly rewarding Cena no matter what.

*being rewarded constantly despite being a sexist, heterosexist, cissexist douchebag

Dear The Miz,

I really wanted your whole good guy thing to be fun and cool.  But I already, 2 weeks later, have to completely take it back.

Cody and Damien are best friends.  Cody grows a mustache and you make a gay joke.  Damien responds in a socially acceptable way more or less, and you just talk over him in the most sophomoric way possible.

I’m glad Cody is trouncing you verbally.  I hope someone trounces you later.  Perhaps the hair of Damien Sandow’s beard didn’t rub off on Cody Rhodes when you allege they were kissing.  Perhaps when The Rock attacked you at Survivor Series last year, his homophobia rubbed off on you.  Could have been Cena too, I don’t know.  Right now Cena is too busy being condescending to women, but that doesn’t mean you should be picking up his slack.

Also, preemptive “fuck you” to anyone who thinks I’m taking things too seriously.  I’m tired of nonsense like this, especially from people I want to like or have liked in the past.

Also, hey, some people have penises and also like the color pink.  Get the fuck over it, every good guy wrestler.  I mean, except for John Cena when it’s in the name of cancer in conjunction with a awful charity for jerks.

Love,

-Garcian, a queer wrestling fan.

Just get real mad Punk.

I mean, if you’re going to do you people you might as well do it with some feeling.

Also, babyface Miz approaching.    WWE can you just, like, let things happen naturally, don’t The Ryback or Funk My Momma The Miz.

Did I tell you guys that my current partner turned out to be a wrestling fan in her childhood and revived it as an adult and now Daniel Bryan is her favorite wrestler and we have matching shirts and that we Hug It Out?

Well, there.

barrylad:

And for those who missed it a couple of days ago, here is the final 10 minute trailer for the unauthorised documentary on ECW. It still doesn’t have an official title, but it has been successfully kickstarted and pre-orders are being taken for a few more hours today.

I’m very excited about this project, as the trailer shows TONNES of potential. The hook is that this film is an unbiased, journalistic look at the ups and downs of ECW, instead of a romanticised look at it. It features interviews with staff, wrestlers and journalists. Pretty much everyone of note except Paul Heyman himself.

The film has been in the works since 2000, and features footage of the dying days of the promotion itself.

This is pretty bumming in a way, that wrestling had become so divorced from art that blading was no longer accepted.

Face Off Vol. 14- New Jack vs. Balls Mahoney Preview (by rfvideo1)

Well if RF Video didn’t already have a reputation for sleaze (it did) it has one now.

Balls Mahoney and New Jack go all out in this face-to-face interview, which is available to order from RFVideo now.

For those unfamiliar with the story, the two had a major confrontation at an Extreme Rising event a few months ago. While there are different stories floating around, the two ultimately got in a shoving match after Balls allegedly called Jack the n-word. Jack pulled a weapon on Balls which was described as everything from a knife to a machete to a sword, depending on who you ask. RF met up with both guys to get their take on the issue, before recording their subsequent face to face meeting and blow up.

You always have to be wary of how much of this is bullshit, but the original fight was very much real, and this footage is completely surreal.

If you have to say it isn’t a work…

Worst: I’d Like Our Moral Code Back, Please

Okay, so the match ends with John Cena throwing CM Punk sideways toward the ropes (very specifically so) with an Attitude Adjustment and covering him for the three. Punk gets his foot on the ropes at two, but the referee (who looks like an extra from The Outsiders) (the movie, I’m not saying he looks like Syxx) doesn’t see it and awards the match to Cena and Sheamus anyway. He didn’t just “not see it”, he saw his error, had it explained to him, then, instead of restarting the match or showing any sort of responsibility or remorse, just walked away going “welp, sorry, you lost”. Cena and Sheamus leave to go hug (or whatever) and Punk gets stuck “whining” about the loss all the way to the back.

I want to see bad guys get defeated in pro wrestling. I don’t want to see them lose unfairly and complain about it.

I feel like I’ve written a Russian novel’s worth of Worst paragraphs about WWE losing its moral code, but stuff like this is just getting tiresome. Good guys can do whatever they want because the fans like them. Bad guys get cheated but shouldn’t complain about it, because they’re bad guys. It doesn’t make sense. Back in the long long ago, that foot-on-the-ropes finish was to either get you excited for a guy you like winning only to have it snatched way by reality (or worse, by a guy who put his foot on the ropes AFTER the three and pretended like the ref missed it, because he’s a scumbag) or to give the guy you like sympathy for a rematch. With this and the Sheamus match from SummerSlam, it’s become a thing for bad guys to complain about, because ONLY PEOPLE YOU BOO CAN FEEL AS THOUGH THEY’VE BEEN WRONGED. Everybody else has to just move on and challenge the guy who cheated them to a MATCH HERE TONIGHT~!!

Fan favorites are the ones who should be generating crowd sympathy. They should be people we want to see win, because they’ve been wronged in some way, or treated badly by someone, or underestimated. They’re Dusty Rhodes, a common man trying to take wrestling’s top prize from rich socialite cheating prick Ric Flair and his gaggle of asshole friends. The way things are set up now, WWE heels are the ones who attempt to generate sympathy, and WWE babyfaces are guys who smile and wave and clap and just destroy everyone. You know why? Because modern wrestling audiences are callous as f**k, and have no interest in living vicariously through a good person … they want to live vicariously through someone who wins all the time and doesn’t think too much. Were you just treated unfairly? WHY ARE YOU STILL TALKING ABOUT IT, THIS IS ALL ABOUT ME

It’s a devaluation of class, intelligence and integrity, and a pretty sorrowful example of how WWE has taught its audience to think what WWE does is what’s best. WWE doesn’t play fair, they just win all the time and do whatever they want with whoever they want. Are you complaining about it at all? Shut up, loser!

So every WWE Title match Cena and Punk have had so far has ended in some sort of controversy.

mean-arse-beard:

So there’s really no definitive winner still between them.

Cool.

that’s a hard trigger to pull.  Like Austin/Rock.  The only real clean win I can remember between them was their last major encounter at WM19, and Austin was on his way out.
