1231 Do It Right.


Tonight was an extremne rule PPV on the WWE network. It wasn’t very extreme though. It’s been a long time since the WWE has been into really extreme things. I don’t think participants want to do themselves, or others, the kind of bodily harm that extreme wrestling causes. There aren’t a lot of people willing to potentially sacrifice their health for the sport the way a Mick Foley happily would. Honestly I can’t fault them for feeling that way. That said, old school extreme rules was a lot of fun to watch. Now it just promises things that it can’t, or won’t, deliver.

In other WWE news they actually had a decent Divas match for a change. It’s starting to look like they are shifting the diva thing away from eye candy and back to competitors again. I prefer those eras. A bunch of lame catfighting does not make an interesting match and the internet kind of defeats the need for sexy women strutting around, unless you’re too young to use it. Most of the divas have pretty small builds, but there are a few that look like they could convincingly wrestle superstars. I was never a fan of Chyna, but she was a welcome addition to the shows. She added color in a good way, and she could wrestle the crap out of a lot of dudes.

For the record, so I don’t get comments about it, I know the outcomes are staged. It’s just a soap opera of punching. But you still have to be physically capable and skilled to make it look convincing. It’s the same thing as watching an acrobat. It’s about showmanship. also, sometimes they punch clowns, which I like. I hope they get a new clown character someday so that he can be punched. Fucking clowns…
