Monday Night War Zone

Fri Jan 8, 2010, 12:23 PM
  • Mood: Wow!
  • Listening to: Fink Ployd
  • Reading: Hogan's book
  • Watching: Bret Hard matches
  • Playing: New Super Mario Bros Wii
  • Eating: fries n gravy
  • Drinking: water
I feel compelled to speak on this~   lol
COMMENCE WRESTLING RANT!!  GO!


How many of you guys were watching Monday night?

So they're trying to do it again~   TNA wants to re-ignite the age old MONDAY NIGHT WARS againts the WWE.   Seems rather fitting since TNA resembles WCW to an alarming degree..

I have always been on the WWE team, at least for the most part.  Back during the ORIGINAL war with wcw it was the cool badass edgy show that you couldnt help but love.  I was also a huge WCW fan,  but i was a mark for the names, and it was the cruiserweight action that I loved most.  (sound familiar X-Division?)  It wasnt until the old ECW came around that I found a TRULY superior product, but that's beside the point.

in the mid 2000's WWE got so stale, that we all tried to find an alternative.  I watched alot of TNA, ROH, and NJPW during this time,   but TNA always had a problem
it was boring!   they had an entertaining X division in the middle of a show of semi retired rejects.   fast forward to 2010

TNA wants a war
BUUUT theyre still boring..  and watching the nWo in their walkers and wheelchairs was actually far more depressing than entertaining..  It seems like they dont want to prove that TNA is superior, i think they want to be WCW!
Vince and the WWF used to joke that WCW was the 'wrestling retirement home' and that was 15 years ago!  Look at TNA now..
did anyone else find that funny watching Hogan Hall and Nash on Impact?
and somebody PLEASE tell me why X-pac things he belongs in the ring with these aging legends!?

WWE RAW featured an aging legend of it's own
the return of Bret The Hitman Hart!   never say never, right?
I noticed something comparing the 2 big name returns monday night..
Hogan was greeted warmly, but i definately got the feeling alot of the TNA faithful doesnt want him there..  and his nWo re-hash theme song just made me laugh..
..and Bret was welcomed back with open arms by fans who were legitimately happy to see him again, and care about him!   It was a marvelous moment,  just hearing that theme song and seeing him walk the aisle to that huge pop gave me goosebumps!

Hogan and the nWo made me depressed and think about how sad it is how everyone gets old and thats life and that sucks..
Bret made me feel like a young fan again!  there was something magic about his return, and something tired about Hogans..

I've tried to be a TNA fan but i just can't do it.  They're not doing anything revolutionary, but seem to think they are.  And keep telling us how fresh and exciting they are.   They dont go 5 minutes without saying that TNA is gonna be number 1 and how they are the best sports entertainment show on earth.

I think they believe if they keep saying it, we will eventually beleive it!!  haha,  doesnt make it true~~

Also i think Jeff Hardy made a retarded move, he took a step BACKWARD there, and Ric Flair?  he just had a big emotional retirement, and ruined it~  X-pac is just kinda pathetic, and the Nasty Boys? who cares!

I've given TNA too many chances to win me over,  they really failed again.
I am however genuinely excited to watch RAW next week~~

Conclusion:  Competition is healthy. But this isn't gonna cut it.

Thats my two cents!   GO GET EM, HITMAN!

plz discuss!

WWE and TNA are both taking the piss right now.

I was watching TNA the other night (nothing else on) and I was actually really shocked at home many good wrestlers have defected (mainly Jeff and Kenedy grrrr) to what I think really is a poor show. Oh and since when did they sway to RAW's square ring??
Anywho, I think the reason Jeff went over was because they were willing to take him on, even knowing how unreliable he is, especially with his love for drugs, and based on the fact that he is a superb wrestler, and the fans adore him.
Kenedy, sorry Anderson... just, no.
And Hacksaw, Flair, Kurt Angle, Steiner, Sting, Lashley... ;-;

Bret returning to WWE was awesome however! 8D
And please someone make Punk shave.
OH AND HOW EPIC WAS EDGE'S RETURN?! I don't think they've decided if the want him heel or face lol I hope he'll turn face, 'cos we miss nice cocky Edge!

Um, thats it I think.
Conclusion: TNA su-cks, and WWE is genuinely awesome atm.

Oh and hi btw, how are ya? *3*

I may not have watched both of them, but i did see parts of Raw and even though i hate that brand so much due to its bad comedy, less wrestling, more skits, the same old guys and matches and the guest host gimmick (some were good, others were bad) i was so excited to see bret hart return. brought back memories!

TNA however, glad i didn't watch, the Hogan and NWO reunion was depressing, i knew they were proving that they're WCW 2.0 also Jeff Hardy going there was a mistake IMO and X-Pac & the Nastys on the show was just worthless. It's obvious since Knobbs is close to Hogan and the X-Pac heat will make its return.

TNA sucked since the first time i saw it. Why? It feels like WCW with a different name. If you have to ask, Chris Daniels, AJ, Samoa Joe, Lance Hoytt, the Canadian Destroyer are/were still in my opinion their best draws. Christy Hemme is still the HOTTEST diva ever for me. If Hogan's gonna have his way, especially with Vince Russo in the picture, I'll give them a few years before they croak. WWE should just rip Billy Gun, Road Dogg and X-Pac outta there and get DX back to full power in WWE.

As for Bret, I felt like a kid again seeing him return. Yes, you can see the age in his face and the blond hair but everything about his walk and swagger remains still strong. Seeing Vince vs Hart at WM26 would make me automatically raid my friend's house to see it, given that i havent watched a Wrestlemania after the one where Batista beat Triple H

I don't really watch TNA, though I do watch the matches and this and that when they're put up on YouTube. I watched TNA for a total of a month following when Mick Foley got there, not consecutively, though. I knew Hogan was with them now, and I'd heard that since he can't compete in WWE anymore, Flair is desparate and will work with anybody, competing or not, so long as it's paid. And NWO again? Really? Scott Hall is what? 400 lbs overweight? 300? Do they really think he could get over in this state? They're sorely mistaken if they do. ... Unless he loses the weight, but I don't see that happening.

And as far as Jeff goes, I really don't care. I like him and all, but whatever. They misused him in TNA before, they'll misuse him now, but if this is what he wants, then who are we to tell him where he should wrestle? It's a fact he was on the top in WWE, a genuine contender when he wasn't a champion and worthy of holding it when he was, and he was marginally more popular in WWE when he left than he ever was in TNA before, but if he wants to be TNA talent, then Jeff Hardy will be TNA talent, backwards step, but there it is.

No, I personally hope they genuinely bring Bret back somehow. Get rid of Jerry Lawler (the way he goes on about the women is UNBEARABLE! I know they're attractive, but God...) and bring him back as a commentator. I mean, the days of face and heel commentator are over for the most part (Go Matt Stryker for doing his part to keep them alive), so what's it matter if it's some old fossil who keeps getting into fights he never wins and drools over girls a fraction of his age or Bret "The Hitman" Hart if they're saying the same things? I mean, after what happened at the end of the show, Vince kicking him in the gut, that cannot possibly be all there is to it if they know what's good for the show. I'd watch Raw with renewed faith if they brought Bret back as a competitor. Fat chance, but the way Raw ended this past week, a chance is still a chance.

No, if there's a new Monday Night War, it won't make a lick of difference. Vince has the money, and when he needs to pull out the stops to make sure he'll win again, he will. And even if there were and Vince were to somehow lose, WWE's too popular to go away. If Vince were to lose the second Monday Night War, it'd probably serve as a wake up call to diminish the creative team's power and within reason let things just happen, like they used to. Both promotions have their ups and downs, and if there were a new Monday Night War, maybe both shows improve a bit for a time during the escalation, the actual thing, and the aftermath, but it'll only be a matter of time before they go back to the way they were before.

Let's face it folks: Televised pro wrestling in America has changed since the original Monday Night War and the damage is so severe, nothing short of a freaking miracle can save it.

I'm interested to see what Bret does next
he signed a 4 month contract, keeping him involved until April
he has an updated Theme Song and new T shirt~

So it looks like it wasn't just a 'one shot'

If Vince hadn't said just tonight that Bret would never again be seen in the WWE... How's that for a four month contract? Makes me wonder, though. Why would they update his theme and give him new merch if the boss was just going to take that all away in one fell swoop. Vince is planning something, but those two hate each other with a passion, so I wouldn't be surprised to find that Vince was telling the honest to goodness truth earlier tonight. He does run the show, after all...

You say that now. But when next week comes and we've seen neither hide nor hair of Bret, then I'll believe Vince really doesn't want Bret back. And I'm leaning toward believing it, cause that's a long time to let something like the Montreal Screwjob go unresolved.

Oh man, lol, the old wrestling rants. Damn, haven't had one of those in god only knows how long! I'll get to the whole TNA thing in a moment, but first things first - OMFGHOLYSHIT!! THE EXCELLENCE OF EXECUTION CAME BACK!!! I nearly died when the week before my Twitter went nuts with tweets from the WWEUniverse about Bret coming back even before they actually announced it. Watching Bret and Shawn, not only shake hands but then hug, brought about this close to my childhood memories of watching wrestling with my dad (even though I still do XD LOL!!) that was just epic :) Just like everyone else that night, I was just so happy to see Bret back in the ring (even as a host) that I seriously got a bit teary-eyed when that guitar rift hit and he came out down the ramp. Goosebumps man, goosebumps.

As far as TNA goes... yeah I've never really cared for it to be honest. It's entirely because of my dad and brother-in-law that I knew about Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Hall and Nash (and unfortuantely X-Pac XP), Jeff Hardy, and even the Nasty Boys.... omg I nearly slammed my face straight into the concrete floor just to try and see if I was just seeing things and going crazy. I admit that yes the Knockouts are hella better wrestlers than the Divas in the WWE - although I still stand behind Natalia, she's a great wrestler if the frick'n morons running the show would just give her the push she deserves!

.........sonofabitch that was a long rant ^^;

Hell yeah, that's one of the best rivalries ever! But it was also an awesome way to just bring it all to a close, it made me feel like a kid again watching those two legends in the ring. I seriously was ready to cry I was so happy :)
Dude, I seriously would have given my left arm to have been in that arena that night in the front row to watch that happen in person.

And speaking of old school for a moment, did you watch Friday Night Smackdown where Chris Jericho teamed with the Hart Dynasty? HOLY. SHIT!! Chris Jericho actually busted out the original Liontamer on Cryme Time!! XD
I nearly had a heart-attack; Bret came back, and Chris Jericho used the Liontimer *dies from awesomeness*

but actually The Boston Crap is a pretty apt name for the way some ppl do it

Bret and Shawn was so amazing. Even just seeing them stand face to face, i watching like "i never thought id ever see this again ever!"

I didn't like the way TNA started things off by having a DQ on a cage match. And the women's match was kinda stale, but still better than any women's match in the WWE. WWE was kinda boring. It was cool to see Bret come back, but I already figured what was going to happen with that. The Matched themselves TNA got better as the night went on. WWE had a few good matches. Evan Bourne versus Shamus was a great match. But overall TNA really kicked things up a notch. For me TNA gave me more excitement, granted there were no real storylines but the match quality and seeing a lot of stars coming back or just showing up was great. Hogan still has the energy to gear up a crowd and I hope that him tlaking about changes in TNA was real and not just story line BS that will eventually end up re-doing another Young vs Old storyline. TNA's problem is that they forget to put their own original stars upfront. It's great to see guys from WWE or WCW that now have a chance to do better, but I should be hearing and caring more about Samoa Joe & AJ Styles, Beer MOney, and Motor City Machine Guns. The NWO making a reappearance was cool for me, kinda funny, but xpac still sucks. All in all I found TNA to be the better product that night. Lets see what happens every night after
