Seth wants Dean to name the stipulation already. Dean mocks Rollins’ briefcase. Rollins says Dean will only get so far by thinking with his heart and not his head.

    helloooooooo wrestlemaniacs

  • David Jr.

    Good evening all.

    • Andrew

      hola

      • David Jr.

        Hello Andrew.

        • Andrew

          whats up david

          • David Jr.

            Not much, you?

          • Andrew

            just ready for smackdown

  • Moose

    Hello ladies and gents. I usually work on Friday nights, but I’m on vacation for two weeks, so this will be my first Smackdown Open Thread.

    • David Jr.

      Hello Moose.

      • Moose

        Good evening!

  • Seth

    Yo. I kind’a vanished a little at times with the huge wave of NFL football returning in that…but I’m here for some Smackdown.

    • David Jr.

      Favorite team?

      • Andrew

        denvers my team and i sorta root for carolina hbu

      • Seth

        Washington. Feeling like they’re a .500 team. Could get a couple good breaks to go the positive way or it can turn to dog poo-poo(gotta keep it cleanish!) with wrong injuries.

        • David Jr.

          My favorite are the Lions, NFL’s losers.

          • Andrew

            they should be pretty good this year

          • David Jr.

            I’ve heard that my entire life, oh this isn’t your father’s Lions, And every year they are.

          • Andrew

            true but i truly believe they will be a playoff team

          • Seth

            Not as high on Stafford as most. Think there’s something missing in the mental tool chest with him.

          • David Jr.

            He’s only good when he’s throwing to Megatron.

          • Seth

            He’s got so many good physical tools but so do many other QBs. Megatron can certainly bail out many QBs, too. Just I think it depends on how disciplined the team is this year…like it’s been the last few years. Talent isn’t an issue.

          • David Jr.

            Lions do have a great offense, but the corner backs are terrible, so any team can just throw at will against them.

  • Moose

    Any guesses for the number of times $9.99 is said on SD tonight?

  • Seth

    Even if Ambrose is a face right now…he is an arse.

  • Andrew

    im getting so tired of that chant!

  • Moose

    I’m showing my age here, but I had a flashback to Motley Crue’s Kickstart My Heart when Ambrose’s music hit.

  • Seth

    Rollins is a true corporate stooge now for the 9.99 plug.

  • David Jr.

    YEAH A LUMBERJACK MATCH!!!!!

    • Moose

      It’s been a while since I have seen a good lumberjack match. This could be spun a few ways at SS.

    • Seth

      It makes sense if you sit down and think about it from a story perspective and that was a hell’va convincing promo by Ambrose to try to get people to believe he’s going to knock the crap out of Rollins.

      • David Jr.

        It also gives guys who won’t be on the card normally a pay day.

        • Seth

          I approve of this too.

        • Moose

          Good point!

  • David Jr.

    Surprise Guests? Sadly most of Hogan’s most famous allies or opponents from WWE are dead. Randy Savage, Miss Elizabeth, Ultimate Warrior, Andre the Giant and Earthquake. So than Roddy Piper, Paul Orndorff, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash then?

    • Moose

      Iron Sheik, Volkoff?

      • David Jr.

        Wouldn’t Sting be great?

        • Moose

          That would blow the roof off the building!

  • Andrew

    random question if you can describe undertaker with one word what would you choose?

    • Moose

      Legend

    • David Jr.

      Phenom.

    • Seth

      Transcendent.

    • Andrew

      i choose legend as well

  • Seth

    I get the feeling the Show/Henry tag team here is put together as a device to split them up and have them program again probably relaunching Henry as a heel.

    • Moose

      Weren’t they a team before Henry left for a while?

      • Seth

        I think they teamed together a couple of times. They also teamed together a couple of times when they were both heel(and that worked better I think than if you tried to go with these two as a babyface team)

  • David Jr.

    Axel must have chickened out. or his razor broke.

  • Andrew

    what do you guys feel about the rock? sorry another random question lol

    • David Jr.

      What do you mean, as him in a whole or him now?

      • Andrew

        as a whole

        • David Jr.

          Well he’s my favorite wrestler of all-time, who drew some of the best ratings in WWE history. (the Rock vs. McMahon-Helmsley era drew as good as any time in WWE history).

          • Andrew

            agreed hes my fav as well and he is one of the best mic talkers of all time

          • David Jr.

            We had a conversation on NXT Open Thread how guys today don’t have what Stone Cold and the Rock have. They could take a segment like singing and make it mean something.

          • Andrew

            true very true remember that segment when they were singing together? i still remember that to this day

          • David Jr.

            Some guys you see today, you can clearly tell they are just trying to remember their lines. Back during the Attitude Era, Rock and Austin would have probably tore up the paper and said I ain’t reading this.

          • Andrew

            no doubt about that

          • Seth

            It was much more common in that era to just wing it and feed off the audience. You can’t really do a ton of that if you’re overscripted and I’m a firm believer that you have to let all the guys sink or swim with the stuff and not overproduce their promos(in terms of just writing things word for word for them or even have them write down exactly what they’ll say which is true in some cases too) but it’s a different era now with different fans and a different product with different people in charge in some cases.

    • Seth

      I think he’s somewhat underrated as a worker, too. Good seller, great babyface fire. It works for him.

      • Andrew

        imo his best feud was with austin or hhh

        • Seth

          I think he had better all around chemistry with Austin. Just enjoyed when those two went at it no matter the time because it felt like such a huge deal.

          • Andrew

            absolutely

        • David Jr.

          HHH and Rock both owe their success to the other.

          • Seth

            I think Hunter needs to get on his hands and knees as well and thank Foley as well.

          • David Jr.

            I think Foley should thank Triple H too. Because in between his Feud with Rock in early 1999 to his feud with Triple H in 2000, His matches were terrible. He had enjoyable segments part of the Rock n Sock Connection but that’s about it.

          • Seth

            I was thinking more along the lines of the King of the Ring program that helped put Hunter on another level when Hunter went over Foley and that program helped give Trips a level of credibility and toughness he didn’t have before that.

            and the two needed each other in 2000. Hunter wouldn’t be in his spot if it wasn’t for Foley putting Hunter over in the hugest of ways in that barbaric Royal Rumble match.

          • David Jr.

            The Triple H vs. Cactus Jack feud in 2000 was a great feud and gave Triple H the heel heat he needed and Cactus Jack the proper send off. And then WWE ruined it by bringing Foley back for Wrestlemania and also adding Big Show and the McMahons to the match.

      • Moose

        When SCSA took his ball and went home, The Rock did an amazing job of filling the void and running with it. He was a perfect fit when Austin left.

    • Moose

      I think he is extremely talented. There have been several WWE/F performers to become successful in the ring. Some have ventured into the big screen, but IMO he is the most successful in doing both. As a wrestler, he wasn’t the smoothest or the most crisp in the ring, but he was damn entertaining. I always enjoy seeing him whether it is a cameo or a part timer doing matches.

  • Seth

    Rollins still feels hit and miss on the microphone. Much better than what he was when he was called up but that segment with Dolph felt very very…unnatural and forced on his end.

    • Moose

      It seemed like a “thrown together at the last minute” kind of segment.

  • David Jr.

    With who know if Rey ever comes back and ADR fired, does that mean Sin Cara gets pushed again.

    • Moose

      If so, he’ll just get hurt when a build hits its peak and make the entire storyline fall flat. That’s not only going to hurt his momentum, but whomever he is working with too.

    • Seth

      It’s going to be very difficult to move forward with him considering the amount of times he’s done 30 second or less jobs for people and generally has been booked to be an idiot.

      • David Jr.

        I don’t really care if he does or not.

        • Seth

          I guess it doesn’t hurt to try once more in a low risk role but we will see.

          • David Jr.

            I just know the WWE likes to get the Latino audience.

  • Moose

    Has anyone seen Oculus yet?

  • Andrew

    who do think should be the next nxt call uP? accension or sami for me

    • David Jr.

      I’d love to see the Vaudevillians.

    • Smark Twain

      I was hoping for Corey Graves but he’s injured, so hopefully it’s the Ascension to help keep the current tag teams going. Sami should definitely be on the main roster but doesn’t look like he’s going to get called up anytime based on how he’s being booked. Adrian Neville should get called up when drops the title.

  • David Jr.

    John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar. Wouldn’t it be like if Superman fought the Hulk?

  • David Jr.

    If Shawn Michaels is Mr. Wrestlemania, who’s Mr. SummerSlam?

    • Andrew

      bret hart

      • David Jr.

        That would be my answer, too. 91 with Perfect, 92 with Bulldog, 94 with Owen Hart and 97 with Undertaker are some of the greatest SummerSlam matches of all time.

        • Andrew

          no doubt man

  • Andrew

    so im still not buying seth as a heel he just looks like a face to me

    • Smark Twain

      My problem with him is he has a generic heel character and he wasn’t given a real clear explanation for turning on the Shield.

  • David Jr.

    Interesting fact, there have been 26 SummerSlams, not counting MITB cash-ins, the WWE title changed hands only 4 times.

  • Andrew

    isnt Big E suppose to be a heel?

    • David Jr.

      Where are Woods and Kofi?

      • Andrew

        yeah i dont get it lol

        • David Jr.

          I hope they didn’t already break them up, because a Kofi-Big E tag team with Woods as their mouth piece could be a great tag team.

          • Andrew

            i agree i really hope they didnt

          • Moose

            NOD 2.0, as they were being dubbed on here, had a lot of potential. Just like the rest of you guys, I hope that hasn’t already been killed. I certainly hope it isn’t collateral damage from the HHH / Vince butting of heads.

  • Moose

    So is Ambrose the new Cowboy Bob Orton with the shoulder tape?

    • David Jr.

      You’re going to here Randy say, Stupid, my dad did it better.

  • Andrew

    it seems like this feud is going towards rollins and not ambrose like rollins is getting more of the upperhand

    • David Jr.

      Even Ambrose might be the most popular of the three former Shield members.

      • Andrew

        yeah true but i meant in terms of like ending the show on top or getting the advantage

        • David Jr.

          I forgot the word though after even. I agree with you. I was saying even though Rollins and Reigns are the one getting the push, Ambrose might be the most over.

  • Moose

    Good night all!!

    • David Jr.

      Good Night.
