He did a shoot with KC a few years ago saying if the R&R Express were to be put in the Hall if he did the inducting, he would do it just so they'd get another payday. He wouldn't do it for just himself.

Watch for a sneak attack by The Midnight Express along with Jim Cornette's tennis racket.

HOF Induction Ceremony just became must see television. Cornette, Live mic? Holy crap, I just got goosebumps (more than I can say for WrestleMania itself).

Re: The 2017 Pro Wrestling Thread.

So I watched the first segment of Impact last week. Alberto was asked to give up the title off camera (they're obviously trying to draw website or YouTube views or something) because they looked at the replay and determined he cheated, and they told him they can't guarantee him a rematch with the champ. What the heck was the point of him winning the title in the first place? Seems like same old, same old to me. Of course he agreed like a wuss because he's the baby face. Ugh.

STOKED about Jim Cornette. Hopefully this paves the way for him and the Midnight getting inducted.

Re: The 2017 Pro Wrestling Thread.

I think they're relying on the notion that Corny wouldn't say anything too bad so the Midnights could get in later as well.

Re: The 2017 Pro Wrestling Thread.

When is one of the female wrestlers going to get payback on Steph for all the shit she does? What made the Vince and Shane's feuds with wrestlers interesting is that they would get their ass kicked by the WWE superstars, and in the process gave fans what they wanted. Steph never gets to be beaten by anyone and it makes her character extremely boring.

Isn't that what got them in this mess to begin with?

According to one of these YouTube Wrestling News shows,Vince McMahon isn't too happy with the Cruiser Weight Division and would pull them off RAW if they had a deeper roster that could fill the three hour time slot.

Undertaker seems off. Not only is he out of shape, but he looks to be injured.

Honestly I wish they would send all the Smackdown teams over to Raw, then send the cruiserweight division over to Smackdown. Smackdown's tone would be a better fit for the cruiserweights, but the tag division seems like an afterthought over there.

Meanwhile, Raw has a few strong teams but no depth to the division. I think Raw could easily run 3 tag team feuds at once with a deeper tag roster, instead of the current situation where you have a title feud on each brand but little going on with the rest of the teams.

One reason I stopped watching Smackdown was because of the joke they call the tag team division. There isn't one team their that could make the grade of the WWF/NWA tag team divisions from the mid to late 1980s(not even as jobbers).

I'm not sure I agree with that. AA isn't ready for their spot but they'd be there. Breezedango, I just have a soft spot for. The Vaudvillians are just horribly misused.

Yeah, I think they have some interesting teams there. In a strong division you should have your title contenders, your midcarders, and your jobbers. Smackdown has - at the moment - 2 credible title contender teams (Alpha & Usos) and a lot of midcard level teams. I think a few of these teams could be elevated to the title level with the proper build, but the Smackdown creative team -- for all its strengths -- seems to be disinterested in the tag division for the most part.

Ascension could be built up to become the team they were in NXT... Konnor looks like a demon with his new look. Breezango could be solid midcard foils for top teams to feud with when it wasn't their turn to be in the title picture. With the Vaudevillains I wish we were seeing the amusing antics we saw from them in NXT, but I'm guessing that side will be stifled so as to not cause confusion with Jack Gallagher.

Alpha's major struggle right now is that WWE thought they could just coast off their NXT popularity, but their lack of a clear identity on the main roster is hurting them a bit.

Usos are killing it with their recent promos, but the sad thing is they haven't been showcased much on the mic to continue to build these personas.

Re: The 2017 Pro Wrestling Thread.

Forgot about the Usos. They are absolute gold with their heel turn and for the life of me I don't know why they haven't gotten a title run.

The same thing is going to happen with #DIY as it did with AA. They're going to try and coast on their NXT popularity and not actually build personalities for them. Dash and Dawson will be wasted on whatever brand they get elevated to. I hope they get stuck in NXT although they more than deserve a promotion.

Re: The 2017 Pro Wrestling Thread.

When Smackdown made jobbers Rhyno and Heath Slater tag champs for no apparent reason,that's when I stopped watching. That would be like the WWF making Barry O and Steve Lombardi tag champs.

Any word on the latest RAW tv ratings? Last night's show was one of the worst I have ever seen. I may have watched one match and FF through all the rest.
