MITB Ladder Match Thoughts, The Shield Dropping Titles, Marketing Talent, Stories You Missed

What are your thoughts on the two Money in the Bank Ladder Matches?

A lot of people are curious what I think about the WWE Championship MITB Ladder Match being all babyfaces and the World Heavyweight Championship MITB Ladder Match being heels. The easiest reaction for me to have is “turns are coming” or “they’re turning everyone” but time will tell to see how they each play out. This obviously wasn’t done by accident but I was told the WHC MITB ladder match was put together in the final moments of writing the script for last week’s Smackdown. I am pleased with the participants announced in each bout as I feel there are enough people in both bouts where the match is conducive to their in-ring abilities.

With the way The Shield has been booked (going over major stars), who do you think would be the logical choice to defeat Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose for the tag titles?

Given the current state of the WWE tag team division, there is no team on the roster capable of such a feat. As much as I think the Usos deserve a legitimate chance, there is no way I’m buying them as viable contenders against The Shield, regardless of how they were booked with Christian on Smackdown. At this point the only feasible outcome for The Shield to drop the tag titles would be due to internal dissension or outside interference. If I were booking, I could continue to book them as dominant as possible to work a major feud at SummerSlam.

Why does Vince McMahon have the mindset that small guys can’t make the WWE money?

Vince McMahon wants talent that is marketable. It’s not that he’s “against all small guys” or never gives anyone but career bodybuilders a shot is that he has an idea of what he believes will draw. He’s not always right and he’s not always wrong. Daniel Bryan is a guy that has won Vince over with his stellar work. Shawn Michaels turned out to be one of the biggest legends of all-time. In short, Vince just wants talent that will cause people to tune in and buy merchandise. Shawn Michaels made headlines last week when he told a story about Vince saying he didn’t see money in a particular talent. Vince says a lot of things but this one made headlines because HBK said it. It’s not that big of a deal.

I’ve been offline over the weekend, will you catch me up?

There were two stories that broke late Friday you might have missed. Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton were fined for “chair strikes to the head” on last week’s Raw. Matt Osborne, who was the original Doink the Clown, died suddenly on Friday. Not much happened Saturday other than TNA Champion Bully Ray being off TNA live events and the WWE MITB PPV lineup taking shape. TNA taped this week’s Impact Wrestling and the following week on Saturday night. We also had some WWE NXT staffing notes to pass along.

    • cobra

      • Babie Sabrina

        Doesn’t UTAH let you have more than one wife we will move there

    • James

      Well his blow up doll just popped! You have a chance!

      • Babie Sabrina

        Yikes a blow up doll

        hmm don’t thing I can replace one of those

      • Danny_Biy

        Are you jealous that you got shut down by the blow up doll? Stop being douche you A-Hole. It’s his site so he can post whatever he wants.

        • Smart Mark

          You didn’t even spell your own username correct *Danny_Boy

    • AK-1138

      Need to submit it in question form.

      • Babie Sabrina

        Read above I revisited it and popped the question to Richard

      • Nostaljack

        Makes sure your grammar and spelling are correct; just don’t expect him to follow suit…LOL!

    • Babie Sabrina

      Will you Marry Me Richard Gray

  • James

    That last question was definitely just another plug for the website..

    • Richard

      Shite grammar as well – “Can you catch me up”.

    • Dave Barton

      Seriously, that one was better than the question I sent last week that didn’t get answered? The user who sent the question (if there even was one) could have easily read the archives. I still want an answer on how far in advance venues are booked…Punk’s Chicago title win and return, RVD returning in Philadelphia, it seems like a new strategy to maximize live crowd interest.

      • Hercules Rockerfeller

        That’s how it is brother. He chooses the questions that will best plug the website or less sensible questions. This column is turning into a joke.

        • Nostaljack

          Yeah but that didn’t used to happen. All of the questions used to be legitimate. I guess the solution is for readers just to expect the last question to be worthless and just ignore it when we encounter it.

      • Danny_Boy

        Screw your question you F’ing douche! Your question was relevant so Richard didn’t waste his time addressing so get over it

        • Dave Barton

          Judging by the ratio of my thumbs-up to your thumbs-down, I’d say more people agree I had the better question. And good to know you agree that my question was relevant… now be a good boy and go look up the meaning of relevant so you’ll understand why we’re all laughing at you.

  • John

    Haha Richard has got to be trolling with these questions about the website/social media etc.

  • Hercules Rockerfeller

    I love this segment of the website but that last question just made me lose a lot of respect for this site! What a cheap way to plug the website. There are so many other ways to go about it but yet the choice to waste a question like that last one just disgusts me. Not to mention how lately tweets are being used to bring us the “news” smfh!

    • Danny_Boy

      It’s his site. So we can post whatever questions he wants. Quit being a douche

      • James

        Does anyone else wanna know if Danny_Boy is a virgin?

      • Hercules Rockerfeller

        Lol my response was not posted, whatever happened to freedom of speech? I can’t even defend myself from ppl calling me names. Pathetic Richard! Just pathetic!

        • Hercules Rockerfeller

          I’ll do it again…I’m not bring a douche! I’m just being a passionate reader who enjoys this column but lately so many shameless plugs and senseless questions it has become a joke. I’m sorry but it’s the truth. Two years ago this site was the shit! Now it looks like it could turn into shit. Yes! I don’t have to come here if I don’t like it but hey I never said I hated this site or the honor but I am losing respect and would not record to anybody to pay money here of this bs is gonna continue.

        • James

          Mine was deleted too. I think Richard is Danny_Boy lol

  • Marcus

    Really?? Why waste time and space on that last question? If they can post that question they can catch up on what they missed. How many good questions got put off for that crap

    • Danny_Boy

      It’s his site, So we can post whatever questions he wants. Quit being a douche

  • Robert Olley

    Love how richard doesnt even respond to all the comments about the plugging question

    • Babie Sabrina

      I am hurt he didn’t respond to my marriage proposal

      • Danny_Boy

        Richard is married you douche. Besides, why would he wanna marry your ugly ass

        • Babie Sabrina

          hold the phone …
          who in the sam peck beep do you think you are talking to me in that tone…

          • Smart Mark

            Well technically, you can’t really have a tone for typing. But i’m on your side. Danny Boy is disrespectful.

  • Peteya56

    The second question meant Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, right? It said Rollins and Ambrose for the tag titles.

  • guest

    You know he has a part of the site where he answers any question asked? You all are trolling about the free questions!!!!
