I hear they don't shower or deodorize when they go to independent shows to get a more authentic experience.

They've had really small eventers though. Some of them great wrestlers. But I always run into the problem of not being able to find their work believable when they go against the bigs. Daniel Bryan vs Brock Lesnar for example. Rey Mysterio vs Big Show back in the day. It doesn't work for me because I know the reality is is that one clean shot from the big man in those matches completely mauls the little guy yet here this little guy is constantly kicking out of shit that should kill him.

It's hard. There has to be some level of realism now that we're past the whole suspension of disbelief phase.

This is a weird thing to try and articulate while simultaneously saying that I love a lot of the smaller guys and their work. Because I find them to be better than the vast majority of the bigs. But I'd pick the bigs almost every time in an actual fight and that realism factor has to play some role.

Also The Revival have a bigger issue than just being small...they are small and work a more "power" style that you usually only see bigs working. That comes off fine when they are working with people who are similar size to them....but you put them in the ring with some hosses and that style just does not translate from them.

If I cared about “believability” of small guys fighting big guys, I wouldn’t watch wrestling. I’d watch MMA where everybody is strictly segmented by weight class.

Also for what it’s worth, in no way does the bigger guy always win in a real fight. Some dudes have a size advantage but no clue what to do with it.

Yeah but we aren't talking about guys who don't know what to do with their size are we? You may not like them as performers, but they are all well trained at this point and not some huge behemoth on the street that's never done anything physical. You really telling me you'd buy Dash against Braun for example?

Sounds like you may not care about believability because you still manage some amount of suspension of disbelief over it somehow.

Also on a side note I feel like the reason Corbin is now in the ME isn't because of his size but because of how much they have been able to make everyone hate him. Like it or not he has heat not seen in YEARS. It doesn't matter if it's legit heat, X-Pac heat, or FU heat, it's a lot of heat. They can use the fuck out of him right now. Corbin will go away when people stop reacting to him.

Also he's not nearly as bad as a lot of people here want to make him seem. He's not great or anything, be he's serviceable and can put on a good match sometimes.

Also I'm not suggesting strict weight classes. There is just a limit to size differential to me, and when you pass that limit it doesn't come off as "legit". I've no problem with someone 5'10" working someone say John Cena's size (6'4" or 6'5" I think and like 235-240lbs?) and putting up a good fight and winning. I'm not buying that same guy against a 6'8" super heavy, like Brock, Lashley, Braun, Drew or Roman.

I have never seen that before. Incredible. It's baffling watching that knowing that he's 59 there....he may have been the most in shape person on the planet for his age at the time.

Agree to disagree with it not working for them, but I will say you're touching on a different problem. Nobody really works psychologically like a type anymore. Big men go flying everywhere. Small guys brawl. Everyone goes up the ropes, and half of everyone uses a submission hold. Everyone is "deceptively" something for their size. Similar to the adage of having nothing but 7ft guys means you have no giants, if everyone does everything, one guy doing it more doesn't matter. Part of Rey Rey's legend is how much he dove. Now, everyone dives.

With the Revival specifically, I have no probelm with them working a "power" style. I have more problem with them being yet another team who does so. Even if they're up against AoP, because taller and fatter doesn't automatically mean stronger.

Also, it made me think of that Carpentier video, and how much of what he did is no different from what much of the Indy guys do now. Only difference is, back then, no one else was doing it, so that made him special. Now, everyone does it, so who gives a shit?

I'm not buying that same guy against a 6'8" super heavy, like Brock, Lashley, Braun, Drew or Roman.
Mike Tyson and Kurt Angle are 5'10. I think there needs to be a distinction between regular small guys and guys of average to below average height who have that NFL running back "brick shit house" sort of body type who look like they could plow through just about anyone.

Yeah. Angle also had the advantage that he COULD legitimately beat guys much taller than him so it wouldn’t be so hard to suspend disbelief. I agree with Seph’s general point but I think it’s more the overall look and presentation than just the height that ruins it for me.

When I was chatting w/ a former WWE writer one time in Twitter DMs he told me if the USA Network had their way RAW would always be about the McMahons/McMahon family drama.

The USA Network LOVES the McMahons storylines/being the central heel focus of RAW.

According to the Observer, Vince's newest plan to fix WWE's ratings woes is to no longer have any wrestling go on during commercial breaks (at least for RAW). Last week's Best 2-out-of-3 and elimination matches on RAW and Smackdown was them testing out this idea.

According to PWI, WWE is also considering the idea of a round system for matches similar to classic European style wrestling. Similar idea when it comes to handling match breaks for commercials.

Both plans revolve around the idea of making WWE shows more sports-like without realizing the actual differences between wrestling shows and sports games. Also likely won't result in WWE actually fixing their deep-seated booking issues.

I noticed WWE wasn't using the titantron last night. Someone from F4W noticed it too and spoke with someone who was on the risers said they really couldn't see inside the ring during the cage mage and since the tron was off it was hard for them to watch the match.

I made this prediction somewhere else too. The pairing of Seth and Becky is way too convenient. Triple Hís stuff has got to be a priority. It might happen before Mania, maybe even at the Saudi show, but I think they are going to do it.

While I thought that wouldnít go back to this well, Iím now leaning towards them doing Brock vs. Roman at Mania too. Thought it would be like first FOX SmackDown, but with Vince not changing anything serious, I can see that and the mixed tag at Mania.

That could be coming too. Keep the McMahon stuff isolated as best you can. But they like more of it, not less, which is probably why it hasnít happened.

Itís an awful theme. Next to her facial expressions, terrible promos and her whipped fan base, itís probably the most annoying thing about her.
