Since for some reason I can’t figure out how to allow comments on pages like the ones on the top of the screen, we can use this instead.

If there’s anything you’d like to ask me, be it what I think of something, my opinion on a topic or if there’s something you’re not sure of, post it as a comment here.  I get e-mail notifications when I get comments so I’ll definitely see this as I check my e-mail about every 12 seconds.  There will be a link posted to this at the top of the site so you don’t have to go finding this all the time.

    I love your reviews. They give great insight to the show and I like how they’re not play-by-play. I was wondering: did you review the Raw where Nexus debuted? I think it’d be a really interesting read if it was written at the time.

    Also, thoughts on Mistico/Sin Cara? Will he be a major player?

    I did do one for it but I’m not sure if it had grades or not. I do a weekly recap in the same format for the forums I’m an admin at and I just cut the ratings. I’ll post that Wednesday for the content for that day.

    As far as Mistico/Sin Cara, he’s another attempt to reach the international audience and that’s a great move. Back in the 60s/70s there were tons of guys that were there for the fans of various ethnicities to have a hero to cheer for like Sammartino and Morales. They worked very well and WWE is recreating that now. With American ratings lowering, there are a ton of fans internationally that can be tapped into. WWE is doing that.

    I think he’ll be a pretty big player as he’s Rey with good knees. That’s very valuable and he’ll draw in a lot of fans from Mexico. That’s a big perk and a lot of merchandise that comes with him. Good move indeed and likely a solid push.

    Hey KB I love your reviews, I’ve been reading them since the beginning. I have a couple of questions for you.

    With the recent retirements of Jericho, Batista, and HBK, and the upcoming retirements of HHH, Undertaker (as much as I used to love him he needs to go all, he has left is Wrestlemania and his returns) Rey, and Edge do you see the next few years in the WWE becoming the next New Generation Era?

    Am I high or is TNA seriously trying to go head to head with the UFC this Thursday. They’ve been building up this show for weeks, better than most of their PPV’s, and Its on the same night as a free live UFC card, Have Hogan Dixie and crew lost their minds even more?

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    I think we’re already in the New Generation. I think I said in my year in review thing that the vast majority of the main event guys are in their early 30s or late 20s. That’s a great sign as the older guys are still around and it’s a very integrated system which is the best thing they can do.

    I’m not sure on TNA. A lot of the time I question what they’re thinking. They say they’re not wanting to focus on PPV but rather on TV and then the TV is nothing special. If they think they can go head to head with UFC then more power to them but I can’t wait to see their reaction when their big idea might not work.

    Here’s my question for you.

    If John Cena just disappeared, who do you think would replace him? I was racking my brains trying to figure this one out, and the only person that came to mind was Orton, but I don’t think he would replace the Cena character that never acted heel-like.

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    Off the top of my head it’s Orton but it depends on how he’s received.

  4. noahconstrictor says:

    All right I have another question. A friend let me borrow the Allied Powers DVD, and in one of the matches from October 87, there is an announcer who sounds like the Aflac Duck and Krusty the Clown had a love child. Do you have any idea who he is?

    klunderbunker Reply:

    What match/company?

    It was Killer Bees vs. Demolition in a 2 out of 3 falls match in WWF.

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    That’s in Houston it seems and has an incredibly odd/stupid trio of Mike McGuirk (woman), Bruce Pritchard (Brother Love) and Duke Doherty, who is a confusing guy. There was a guy named Duke Doherty who was a jobber but NEVER left Boston. That’s an odd name to have two of but that doesn’t sound like him. The guy’s name is Duke Doherty though, assuming it’s not Pritchard. So it’s one of them, likely Doherty.

  5. noahconstrictor says:

    All right. They didn’t say, “Welcome from “place”! “Annoucername” here with “otherannouncers””. The match itself is pretty good, but the announcing kills a bit of it for me.

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    It’s from a house show. Back then there were a lot of shows that were like best of house shows instead of something like Raw or Smackdown. It was normal to have 3-4 different commentators and come from 3-4 different cities.

  8. Stormtrooper says:

    1. Do you see The Miz ultimately replacing Cena as the #1 guy in the company? Not immediately or anything, but a year or so down the line. I’m not basing this off of his reactions at Mania (which were as much Anti-Cena as they were Pro-Miz), rather his media savvy-ness, Non-WWE personality, willingness to seemingly do every media appearance known to man, etc.

    2. Similarly, could he eventually make an Austin-like face turn? Not a turn in that he changes how he acts, but more like the fans start loving what he does.

    3. And IF (IF) he did both 1 and 2 (which I personally think he can/will), COULD they then say “OK, now that Cena isn’t the #1 guy for the fans anymore, we can turn him” and then they turn him (again, IF IF IF IF IF, and could they, not should they).

    I’m not asking if they should turn Cena, rather if Miz usurped the #1 spot, could they then be able to get away with turning him?

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    1. I doube it. Cena does media stuff too which is often forgotten about. He’s perfect for marketing as he’s handsome, built well, well spoken and well rounded. hard to trump that.

    2. Maybe but it would have to be built very well.

    3. The Cena heel turn is something that is hard to pull off. Hogan back in 96 was really skeptical because it could have bombed HUGE. Now it could work very well for Cena, but at the same time I think a lot of people would want Cena to be a face again as soon as he turned.

    [Reply]

    Stormtrooper Reply:

    1. I’m not saying Cena doesn’t do that. What I’m saying is that Miz surpasses even Cena in that regard. I love Cena, I just think that Miz can ultimately attain Cena-levels of popularity.
    I don’t want to say Rock-levels, but honestly I wouldn’t be totally surprised if he did. Miz is just as perfect for marketing as Cena is.

    2. Was the Austin thing built all that well? I mean all it really was was the fans starting to love what Austin was doing. I think Miz could start to garner the respect of the fans and the massive cheers that come with it. You know what, he might even be starting to get there (again, I do think some of the Mania cheers were pro-Miz).

    3. I know it’s hard to pull off, but from a company standpoint, if Miz actually did become that #1 guy and a financial backbone of the company, they might be able to afford to risk it, if it didn’t totally work. Also, didn’t people want Hogan to be a huge face again in 96? If not, then who’s to say Cena doesn’t reach that point in a couple years, especially if he’s “replaced” by Miz.

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    Austin had a lot going for him when it happened. The timing was perfect and he was in front of the right audience. Another thing Cena has over Miz: he’s more entertaining in the ring. Miz’s in ring work isn’t bad but it’s not great. That hurts him.

  9. dude_d_dude says:

    What’s up KB, big fan of your reviews.

    Personally I thought WM27 was absolutely terrible, and the main problem to me was that a lot of the buildup for matches was either rushed, poorly executed, or somewhat forced upon us, do you agree with any of that?
    And if you could’ve built up certain matches, would you have done it differently so that WM actually felt like things would’ve come full circle? Or do you think it’s cool to just let feuds continue indefinitely

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    I thought the build was pretty good actually. The problem I saw with it was that everything felt rushed as you said. It felt like they thought they had to get all of this done in 3 hours instead of the four they had. A match was cut completely and two others lasted a total of under five minutes. You had Rock eat up 20 minutes to open the show when he said absolutely nothing. You really couldn’t hack off 10-12 of that to have the US Title match get 7-8 minutes? Evertyhing felt like it was rushed and it really hurt the show.

    [Reply]

    dude_d_dude Reply:

    Yeah for real, I was also really annoyed to just see the US title match completely sacked, that was unfair.
    Speaking of that, what’s your opinion on how WWE have been kinda “de-pushing” guys like Sheamus/Swagger/Barrett, these are former World Champions/Main Event material and now they’ve just been shoved hastily onto the mid-card.

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    There’s a big difference between world champion and main event material. With the decline of the midcard titles, the only thing that can really be done is throw the world title on someone to built them. This doesn’t make them more credible as it makes the title less credible. Swagger wasn’t ready to be champion yet but they threw it on him anyway. It’s the flaw of having two titles.

    I think it could be cool if they actually reference it. This comes off as something “real” and that has been badly missing from WWE in the past few years. This could be cool but they have to do it right. Also, it means nothing if only the fans there see it. Even a mention on the website would help.

    Yo KB, after reading a few of your reviews (Royal Rumble 03 for example) and how you trashed HHH (not that I blame you, it really was a horrid match with Steiner), after reading your review of RAW tonight and hearing what Punk had to say about HHH I have to ask, what’s YOUR personal opinion of HHH.

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    The guy is definitely good and bad at various times. He had some classics and dragged a good match out of Khali in 2008 which more or less classifies him as one of the best ever right off the bat. In 02-04 though, the guy was awful and really slowed things down a lot due to his desire to stay on top for longer than he needed to be. Overall I think there’s more good than bad though, if nothing else due to his Foley and Rock matches and most of his Shawn stuff.

    [Reply]

  15. dude_d_dude says:

    You’re right, he does have his good days and his bad.
    I disagree though, personally I don’t find him good OR bad, I think his great stuff truly was great (like you said) but the bad stuff really just ruins it for me.
    I mean wasn’t this a guy who at one point had the IC belt removed from RAW for a bit or am I thinking of someone else? And the DX stuff was really hit or miss (do they really need to beat 5 Spirit Squad guys?)

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    I think it could have but it would have had to have been a lot different. First of all, when the first thing you see is Rock who has nothing to do with the league, you could tell it was going to be full of troubles. Also with a wrestling owner running things, the idea of it being fixed was always in the back of people’s minds. Finally the football just wasn’t all that good. In summation it could have worked but it needed some major tweaking.

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    They did but they treated it like a joke. I remember they had all of the scores for the first week and then it tapered off very fast. I remember it distinctly because the opening night was on my 13th birthday.

    As for WCW, I really don’t think so. They were still in the VHS days at that point. There are some fan made stuff on DVD but as far as official ones, I’m pretty sure they didn’t.

    Is it true, that undertaker plans his return for vengeance in october? If he returns who shall he be facing this time?Will it be versus kane again to take his revenge of bragging rights buried alive match last year or against the nexus for their interference (personally i think that storyline is dead and the old nexus is no more there but then vengeance is taker’s style and if he wants his revenge against kane/old nexus then this is the perfect time?

    Use a consistent format. What drives me crazy is when its hard to tell what’s going on when I’m reading a review. Don’t put down every detail, because people aren’t looking for a 40 page essay on what happened. At least I’m not. If I wanted to know every single thing that happened during a show, I’d watch the show. Above all else: BREAK UP PARAGRAPHS. Nothing drives me crazier than seeing a 20 line wall of text. Most people, myself included, will skim over it and look for buzz words and that’s it. 3-4 lines is an easy amount to read.

    August 1998 when he was feuding with Undertaker and i actually remember a dirt sheet report from a long time ago where someone brought a “Rocky Sucks” sign during his 2000 run and caused near riots i will reseach it and see if i can find anything about it.

    Did you know if that rumor was true that bischoff paid some fans to run in the ring during Nitro to get that “Anything can happen” feel? Or were they some legit drunk idiots? And another WCW fans rumor was that they told fans to throw stuff in the ring which is why it hardly ever happened on WWF TV but always on Nitro.

    [Reply]

    Jay Reply:

    I always hated when Trash would be thrown in the Ring on Nitro during the nWo Segments. At first it was fine because of these douchebag heels kicking everyone’s ass but by 1998 it got kinda overdone. It wouldn’t have surprised me that Bischoff told Fans to do it or try to run in the Ring since all he cared about was the Ratings.

    KB are you behind Cena or Rock, and why?

    Personally I’m firmly behind Cena. I’m not his biggest fan by any means, but Rock just isn’t doing it for me anymore. Some dirt-sheets have reported him just not bothering with folks backstage, you can’t trust these things 100% but after multiple reports it does beg the question. I’m not someone who wants to see him back every week, but I do believe that if he really wanted to be involved he’d take a “Legend” type role. He’d mentor guys/girls backstage, help train them a bit if he can, do some behind the scenes work if you know what I mean. I personally think he’s in it just for the pay/publicity, which is fine and all when you’re that famous (I guess) but don’t make it seem like you ONLY care about the wrestling when I doubt he really, truly does.

    Just my personal opinion.

    We don’t know whats going on for real though its backstage no cameras filming and no proof (A fan for all we know could be sending false info) Unlike the fact that people get paid more can proven because the facts are out there saying how much they made at each event.

    Just saying lets not judge Dwayne until there is solid proof that he did this.

    I thought rocks promo responded to everything Cena said last week and fit some jokes into it because in all honesty Rock has never been a serious character so a fully serious rock promo does nothing and Rock had the crowd in the palm of his hands.

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    Because I’m not a Cena guy. I just have no interest in having someone starting chants of “Cena’s missing balls” and “Cena’s lady parts.” If that’s entertaining to you then whatever but it does nothing for me.

    One more thing i wanted to share a friend recently watched Smackdown with me it was his 1st WWE show for like 5 years he said the biggest reason for him quitting watching was he hated knowing what would happen next.

    When Johnny Ace announced Kane Vs Aksana he said “What’s the damn point Kane attacked Orton so who the fuck do you think will be the big hero next week?”

    I think he has a point (On the casual fan side) he was calling everything out and how everything will probably go next week do you think this is a problem with WWE and casual fans?

  74. Evan says:

    You know KB, alot of people ask me all the time, when am I going to get out of wrestling ? They tell me it’s for “8 year olds” and they tell me that buying DVD after DVD (I have around 200 WWE DVDS) is a waste because they will eventually end up in a box in the basement somewhere, or sold for 2 dollars each.

    It got me thinking, why do we love this so much ? I mean, I got into wrestling later in life, as the first show I ever watched was Summerslam 2004, and I’m 18 now, so I’ve only been watching for ALMOST 8 years, but it seems as if my interest is still at it’s peak and I don’t see it lowering any time soon.

    I tell people that eventually I’m going to pass on all my wrestling things to my kids. Hell, last summer, I met and got an autographed picture with Hulk Hogan (a memory that will surely last forever). I will NEVER stop loving this, as I feel there are a selected few out there, that no matter what direction the business takes (PG, TV-14), we’ll still be there.

    However, I believe interest to be cyclic. I lost interest in the WWE around late 2008 and didn’t watch it CONSISTENTLY until late 2010, just checking the results of PPV’s every now in then, but as always, something drew me back in, because it’s a part of who I am.

    So my question to you is simple… Did you ever take any breaks from watching wrestling, if so, what brought you back, and do you ever see yourself repeating that cycle again ?

    Could you do a post about the CM Punk angle from last year? Your thoughts on it, how you reacted, where it went right and wrong? I think it would be a good read.

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    Probably not a full post but in short I loved it. The angle worked because they switched things up a bit. It wasn’t the same old stories that they always had and it had people guessing. Also it worked the smarks, who were actually believing that Vince would put Punk out there for a “shoot” without having him locked up in a contract. Yeah, wrestlers and a wrestling company lied to us and we bought it. Amazing how that works. I think it used to have a name: kayfabe or something. I loved it and everything up through MITB was great.

    Where they went wrong was the night they had Punk return about two weeks after the fact. He got a HUGE pop, but imagine if that had been say two or three months later. Then at Summerslam they have Alberto cash in and the whole conspiracy thing starts up, resulting in HHH beating the tar out of Punk for awhile and taking Punk away from the title picture for a few months, totally cooling off his white hot streak.

    In other words: a wrestler comes up with a great idea and the creative team of soap opera writers that have no idea how to write a wrestling storyline screw it up.

    [Reply]

    AttitudeFan Reply:

    It was actually a good time to be a fan back then (Starting to sound nostalgic over something not even a year old lol) but yeah it was amazing and the hype for MITB was amazing.

    Evan Reply:

    Another quick question. Do you believe that the “spectacle” of Wrestlemania adds to the in-ring quality ? For example, let’s just say that Taker-HBK from WM 25 takes place at like…. Over the Limit or some B level show…. Is it just as good as if it takes place at WM, or does the “spectacle” that is Wrestlemania add to it?

    Personally, I’m a fan of atmosphere, and the “entertainment” side of WWE. The idea of a match that takes place at Wrestlemania under the bright lights tends to give us more excitement and adds to the whole experience as a fan. So, it DEFINITELY makes it better IMO.

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    Cena feuding with a white hot CM Punk during the summer didn’t help as well would you say? And Brock Lesnar coming back will equal even more boo’s would you agree?

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    I would think so yeah. The thing abotu Cena though is that he can go through that and it’s not going to hurt him. Having someone solidly in the spot that he’s in is a great benefit because you can have him lose most of his matches and he’s still fine.

    Just been watching some 2008/9 stuff and holy hell is Jeff Hardy over he actually manged to get the Undertaker booed in a match they had. How big do you think Jeff Hardy could have been had he not left/had drug problems?

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    Pretty up there, but one of the reasons he was so beloved was his drug problem and overcoming it.

  99. AttitudeFan says:

    I could have seen Jeff Hardy as the #2 pretty close #1 face and man Cena and him could have had an epic “ultimate faces collide” match at a Wrestlemania.

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    I could see that but I don’t think they could put Hardy over Cena.

    [Reply]

  100. AttitudeFan says:

    Would it be crazy of me to think Vince told Lesnar to “give Cena some color” seeing how they had MMA viewers and there was talk of legitimacy?

    Also the blood really makes me miss that the WWE wont have blood again because whether it was a accident or not it really sold it for me that they hated each other.

    I would love to see you do a post with your views on blood in wrestling.

    klunderbunker Reply:

    There isn’t enough for a post. In short, there’s no need to have someone goring themselves to death. I don’t have a problem with it happening every once in awhile, but if there isn’t any I don’t really miss it.

    I know I am going to sound like a broken record asking this but do you think they might let some blood spill in the Lesnar/Cena match with all this legitimacy talk and zooming in on a bloody Cena’s face.

    this may sound perverted but i still want to ask.

    a few years ago, i saw a dailymotion video which featured two nwa-tna knockouts wrestling in the ring. one of them was losing her top and jeremy borash was covering her with his jacket.

    i tried to find that video but i saw that it’s deleted.

    original link was this:
    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5012q

    this is the only frame of the video that i could find (to prove that this video actually existed): http://img4.woopie.jp/getdata.php?pid=1704e72q15be7

    my question is, do you know when did this happen? if the answer is no, could you please ask your friends? i really want to see this video once again.

    Yeah I checked out 2007 for the 1st time and I agree with you that it was probably one of their Best PPVs. 2008 Ive seen a couple times but never got all the way through it and never came back to finish it. 2008 is not bad with the Tag Tournament and the World Title Match. Didn’t care for the Divas Battle Royal/Ladder Match though however. I may check out 2009 next week.

  119. AttitudeFan says:

    Just randomly thought of this. How awesome could the 1000th episode of RAW be this year?

    I mean compared to previous years if everything goes to plan they could have on one show

    Rock
    Austin
    Foley
    Bret Hart
    Lesnar
    Cena
    Orton
    Undertaker
    HHH
    HBK
    Jericho

    I mean just look at that! If everything did go to plan that could be so awesome. The other years sucked because some of the main names was either doing other things or others had problems with WWE.

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    I just have a feeling they’re going to screw it up. For whatever reason they keep trying to appeal to the fans of the 80s with guys like Dusty and DiBiase and Hillbilly Jim. Why not have people that were names in the 90s that you never see anymore pop up?

    [Reply]

    AttitudeFan Reply:

    I agree so much. The only one out of the 80’s lot that can get a reaction from the crowd these days is Piper (Who I wouldn’t mind showing up at all) I wouldn’t mind some old midcarders from the attitude era pop up they are always fun.

    Oh man imagine if Lesnar is doing this whole beating everyone up storyline still and then Austin and The Rock show up in the middle of the ring man that could be some awesome TV.

    On a side note talking about when these 80’s guys show up there always seems to be some weird tradition when Dusty Rhodes pops up on the show he always turns either heel/face in Cody Rhodes segment. Don’t know if you ever caught that.

    [Reply]

    klunderbunker Reply:

    Yeah I have. It’s kind of comical at times.
