    It is a bit overboard to be keeping track of how much time is spent on wrestling but, it is sad to know that only %25 of that episode was spent on Wrestling while the other %75 was just plugged in with other crap. I used to watch Smackdown because it usually had better wrestling than Raw. Raw is too crammed with storylines and junk that the wrestling is usually mediocre, so I preferred Smackdown. Now, Smackdown is becoming Raw 2.0? It’s all downhill from here. If it isn’t already downhill.

    It’s a bit overboard to know the amount of time is spent on matches but at the same time, it isn’t a bit sad that only about %25 of Smackdown is spent on wrestling? I used to watch Smackdown cause usually, the wrestling is better on Smackdown than Raw. Raw is usually crammed with storylines and nonsense, so I actually preferred Smackdown. Now Smackdown does the same thing?

    THANKS FOR TAKING THE BAIT.

  • Wellsy

    Vince, do you not have anything better to do than be a Keyboard Warrior on the comment section of a wrestling news site? Seriously son, get a life and do something constructive with it!

    the reason i started coming here was when i was in middle school they had porn and it was the only site i could get on with my parents blocker and now im 2 lazy to find a new site after coming here for like 11 year now

    ps i hope dolph wins the belt

  • jim

    i feel happy now..i can come on here and see how much time is spent wrestling on shows each week.thank god there is someone out there with a pen and paper timing matches as they are going on.i dont know what i would do if there wasnt

    I kinda agree! Everything is recycled, rehashed, and spun in their own way, its just news, if you want new news make it, if you arent’ a reporter, then shut the f!ck up and read, don’t like the link, back up and read a new one, I for one love reading other peoples perspectives on wrestling, good or bad, heel or face, or even the stupid people on here. flarce! whoops a spelling error

  • skitzo

    @ Brandon, you are 100% correct.

  • Sammo

    @Brandon

    The plural of “story” is “stories”

  • Brandon

    YOU PEOPLE AMAZE ME ABOUT HOW MUCH YOU DISS THE SITE AND THE “REPORTERS”.

    HOWEVER THE WORLD IS FULL OF INTERNET TOUGH GUYS WHO WILL POINT OUT GRAMMATICAL ERRORS, SPELLING ERRORS, AND HELL ANY ERROR THEY CAN FIND.

    TOO MUCH TIME IS SPENT ON THIS SITE READING THE VARIOUS REPORTS AND POSTING A MESSAGE ABOUT HOW THE STORY IS WRONG, MISLEADING, OR DOUBLE POSTED. HELL GO TO YAHOO.COM AND THE 30-50 “NEWS STORYS” ALL HAVE MISLEADING AND DUPLICATE TITLES, AND WHAT DO THEY DO…. THEY GET YOU TO CLICK THE LINK. ITS PART OF LIFE.

    I HAVE COME TO FIND THAT ALL WRESTLING SITES “AND NEWS SITES” ARE ALL PRETTY MUCH THE SAME. THE STORIES ARE BORROWED, RECYCLED, AND USED AT DIFFERENT TIMES TO BENEFIT THE WEBSITE. LOOK AROUND THE INTERNET IT HAPPENS EVERYWHERE.

    BE GLAD THAT WRESTLING-EDGE EXISTS IN BASICALLY AN AD FREE ENVIRONMENT SINCE THESE REPORTERS CONDUCT THIS SITE AT NO CHARGE. IF YOU HAVE NOTHING OTHER TO DO BUT READ A REPORT AND DISS THE REPORTER OR THE STORY THEN USE A DIFFERENT WEBSITE.

    END RANT

    What is the obsession over timing matches on shows all of a sudden? Just watch the damn show. There’s no number where people are gonna say “this isn’t enough, I’m never watching it again”. If they ‘feel’ there isn’t enough quality wrestling, then they won’t watch it. They’re not gonna stop watching it because some clown say’s there’s only half an hour of wrestling on the show, though.

    And it’s not all about time either. It’s about quality. I’d watch 30 minutes of one quality match over an hour or more of several lousy matches. That’s where this week failed. Not over quantity, but over quality and that’s only because last week was the first Smackdown of 2011 and offered two huge matches and a title change. The only thing this week saw was the formation of Nexus on Smackdown, which was, in my opinion, satisfying enough to say I’ll watch again next week.
