While I'd normally jump at a chance to see scanitly clad guys fake fighting eachother, I have my qualms

A) Acting is shit

cool.gif They are normally ugly

C) They are perpetually sweaty.

D) They are either steroid looking or obese.


I just wonder how this progressed from old school greek sport wrestling into pyrotechnics and guys in makeup.

Well, I've officially stopped watching WWE. I only watched Smackdown stoned off my tits at 1 am after work, but it's no longer on then, so it's gonna be TNA and nothing else, as I refuse to watch wrestling during the day.

I can bet that you will end up watching SD again in a few weeks. TNA is in chaos, everybody there is leaving. Just no stableness anymore.

But anyway, Smackdown was actually pretty good last night, better than I've come to expect.

TNA is just falling apart, and I'm ready to give up. ROH or CZW need to get a TV deal...

Quit, as in storyline quit? So he'll come back later with some washed up and supposedly retired wrestler to reinvent them and take on his dad. That sounds the most likely option. Very dramatic, with closeups of McMahon's furious face at the end of the programme to show how much he's pissed off or something. (I'm just guessing, I have no idea what storylines are going on nowadays.)

Although I watched 5 minutes of Smackdown the other week, that CM Punk twat was saying how great he was and how he deserved a title shot because he was the most epic wrestler of all time. Then I turned it off.

No, quit as in quit.

Heres what he said.

"It is with great sadness that I announce my resignation from the WWE, effective January 1, 2010.

I have never even considered a future outside the walls of the WWE. However, sometimes life takes an unexpected turn and while it is the most difficult decision I have ever made, it is time for me to move on.

First and foremost, I would like to thank my father for the incredible education working with him has provided and for giving me the opportunity to play a role in building WWE into the global phenomenon that it is today. I am extremely proud to have been the 4th generation in this business, and I am grateful for everyday I was able to work along side not only my own, but the entire WWE family.

Thank you to all of the WWE Superstars both past and present for your passion, pride and dedication. You are truly the engine of the organization and it has been a pleasure to work with, learn from and get to know all of you. Thank you for the privilege of sharing the stage with you and for allowing me to become but a momentary member of your elite brotherhood. I have so much appreciation for the many sacrifices you endure, both physically and personally, to make this business the success that it is. The respect I have for each of you is immeasurable.

Finally, there are no words to express my gratitude to WWE fans the world over for supporting this company through good times and bad and for your unbridled passion that fuels the Superstarsí performances. I am profoundly grateful to have been able to entertain you both in front of the camera and from behind the scenes. You are the greatest fans in the world.

I will always love this business and will remain a fan forever.

Shane"

EDIT:And to make matters worse, a main eventer in WWE has bragged to friends about taking marijuana.

"One main event WWE star has boasted to friends about failing for marijuana 14 times. This particular wrestler hasn't faced the same scrutiny from management as some of the mid-carders whose pushes were stopped due to repeated test failures. However, the fine for failing for pot was recently levied from $1,000 to $2,500 and it has him thinking twice.

Like many wrestlers in the company, he is now using a product sold at head shops (retail outlet specializing in drug paraphernalia related to consumption of cannabis and other recreational drugs) which gives off a similar effect as marijuana, but is legally sold and does not show up in drug tests."

I reckon its Orton. Hes failed many drug tests and is known to smoke.

Because they are performance enhancing? And it matters because wrestling is real? Let the fucking guys toke up man. Relieve some stress. Life on the road ain't easy.

WWE is marketing itself as a family show, and parents will switch off if little Johnny's hero is taking drugs openly. Also, there is the slight risk of people being under the influence in the ring, which would be dangerous for all involved. It is stupid that a main eventer can get away with shit midcards can't, but it's not surprising.

Not the first time I've heard about main eventer's getting preferential treatment.

Also the fact that a lot of wrestlers are dieing from the drug abuse. Eddie Guerrero in 2005 and Chris Benoit in 2007 who ended up with roid rage, killing his wife and kid. He then hanged himself. There has been over a 100 wrestlers deaths in the last 20 years involving somebody under 50 years old.

There's been plenty of wrasslers (yes, I said that intentionally) that have died over the years at a pretty young age, I can't even name them all.

Didn't British Bulldog die in '02?

Big Bossman died in '04 from a heart attack.

Curt Hennig died in '03 from a cocaine overdose.

It's a pity Hulk Hogan hasn't kicked the bucket yet.

If he did, it would fit my theory that a WWE wrestler has to drop every 3 years.
Owen Hart-1999
Britih Bulldog-2002
Eddie-2005
Benoit-2007
test-2009

Next death is due in 2011.

Edit:Fits my theory. Curt Hennig and Bossman werent working for WWE at the time were they? If they was then it does not fit my theory.

Bragging Rights was crap. Good job it was on sky sports so I didnt have to pay for it. Biggest shocker was Batistas heel turn, but I saw that coming.
