    If this is your stance on one subject, then I take it you share the same stance on ALL entertainment. Should the FCC crack down on movie directors for portraying bullying and violence? Are we, the audience, endorsing these characteristics by buying movie tickets, DVDs and merchandise? Be consistent and realistic in your logic.

  • real-ise this

    So I am being jerked around into allowing the bullying HHH
    and the Shield are committing against anyone who does not like their Nazi like
    behavior in the name of “Business” So if you continue to watch YOU
    are endorsing their behavior. Just that the bullies are
    enjoying the destruction for the one from the many too much. Start tweeting Bully BOO every time HHH or the Shield show up. They should be sanctioned by the FCC for gasing our collective consciousness with their really – really unwholesome behavior… think I will start acting JUST like HHH or the shield to people under me who I could scare into submission. HHH and the MOB behavior is totally upsetting and foul. Definitely checking with the FCC for the anti- American morals and behavior and inequality happening on Government airwaves. Maybe This Business will wise up.


    U know damn well if john cena was still there he would have cut a promo instantly and show is sposed to be teaming with mark henry to chase the tag titles at night of champions so the story isnt really about show getting involved its about orton & the mcmahon family against daniel bryan and the only reason I said punk was cuz I dont see him continuing his feud with heyman & axel after night of champions so why not put him in that feud and ultimately lead up to a bryan vs punk match at Wrestlemania

    It’s a storyline. It’s hardly burying. The problem with our society today is we are all caught up in instant gratification. We have no patience. We want our favourites to be instant stars and that’s it. Things take time, storylines develop and stronger characters are built. Just have patience and the payoff at the end will justify the wait.

    Lets talk in kayfabe for a minute;youre tell me,if your boss told you not to do something,you’d do it? That is stupid and plus it seems like they’re building up to Show helping Bryan anyway.(end of kayfabe talk)
    Going with going against HHH,why have Punk cut the promo? I think it would be better if somebody who wasnt already a main eventer,let’s say Ziggler, did it and got them more over rather than Punk who wont get more over from it.

  • Nick

    I don’t see this as “burying” Ziggler…or even Bryan for that matter. Just because our favorites lose and get beat up don’t mean they are getting “buried”. The whole point is to put heel heat on Corporation V.2 and build up sympathy/support for Bryan and Ziggler, making them even more over. So, in order to do that, they have to get their ass kicked every once in a while but as long as they look strong in defeat, it’s all good, it doesn’t count as a burial. Bryan got beat down last week on Raw but he looked strong still for a few moments whenever he was taking on The Shield by himself. Same goes for Ziggler. He held his own in that handicap match against The Shield, therefor making him look strong. It all depends how you book it. I’m sure this will all end with Ziggler/Bryan rising up against the machine and ultimately coming out on top, making them into huge stars. Just give it time. And I was thinking the same thing as the guy below me. WWE’s BattleGround PPV…a WarGames like match with Orton/Shield vs Ziggler/Bryan and two other guys. I’d rather those two other guys not be Show/Henry but right now those are the only two other guys that make sense. I’d love to see Punk in there tho.

    Bryan, Ziggler, Henry and Big Show vs. Orton and The Shield

    WarGames: The Match Beyond at the Batteground PPV – WWE, make it happen!!


    This whole storyline with the wwe roster not being able to speak out against triple h is stupid, I hope after night of champions cm punk will drop another pipe bomb

  • hon
