    Default WWE: Self-aware and giving nods to the Internet?

    I know, I know. WWE doesn't acknowledge the Internet. WWE doesn't pay attention to the Internet. Mom's basement and all that jazz.

    But let's look at the evidence, and I don't mean just Twitter.

    Antonio Cesaro being Very European. The last HHH Title run on Smackdown, and pretty much every babyface promo he made that some of you saw my blood boil from. The article from Joey Styles about CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.

    And need I even mention Teddy Long coming out and making tag team matches? Come on.

    What I'm getting at is that there are some people within WWE, whether they want to admit it or not, are fully aware of what the IWC is saying about them and they are not beyond giving the occasional nod of acknowledgement or Easter Egg to acknowledge us.

    So, if there were things that you, Mr or Ms. IWC Smark, wanted WWE to do as just a little inside joke to you and your ilk, what would it be?

    Thank you surrender.

    I thought this was apparent when Vintage became an in house meme at WWE, and when Team Friendship was an option for Kane & Bryans name.

    They are definitely in on the Teddy Long joke at this point, there's no doubt in my mind.

    I know this is random, but I'd like to see a midget or small child dressed in all black with a ski mask come in and jack Cesaro during his title match with Truth and cost him the title and then run off never to be seen again. Except by Truth of course. lol.

    Not to mention, their Champion is probably the biggest smark around.

    Is it terrible that when I read "all black," the first thing that came to mind was blackface?

    I'd love to see Dolph Ziggler come out with the words "Anna 3:16" written on his shirt...

    It would be great if they were even more self aware though. Like have Dolph walking down the corridor, when he stops and sees some male cheerleaders, shudders, and carries on.

    MmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmm yeah, but they've been this for ages.

    Pretty much every summer of Punk promo was a nod to smarkdom.

    It works in small doses, otherwise it just becomes pandering and that plain sucks.

    Or someone asks him to play golf, and Ziggler just gives them this murder stare.

    This. 1000 times this.

    It'd be something that doesn't take away from anything, but gives a nod and a laugh to the long-time smarky fans. Kinda like how kids movies will have those subtle jokes for the parents in the crowd.

    There's a shit-ton of things they can do involving Ryder. And dammit I want to see that once before I stop caring about him completely.

    Maybe have HHH's burials become a running joke. Like him and Booker T are backstage shooting the shit, talking about the good old days. Booker would be all "Hey, remember when I was dressed like a King, and you came back and was all 'I'm the King of Kings'"? And HHH would laugh and be like "Yeah, remember that time I wrestled you at Wrestlemania and nearly ruined your career". HHH laughs while Booker just stares blank faced at him as HHH just stops laughing awkwardly and shuffles off camera.

    Replace "stops laughing and shuffles off awkwardly" with "throws coffee in his face and keeps laughing." THAT would be more believable.

    It's about comic value Crippler. If you did that, Deej would have a breakdown.

    ...

    Okay, he throws coffee in his face.

    I'd like to see Kane hit Striker over the head with a random box and it gets stuck on his head, then while he is wandering around aimlessly trying to get it off, he stumbles behind Daniel Bryan. Then DB turns around, gives a start, knocks him on his butt, then yells "Yes!" and dances away.

    (If you don't get this, watch more YouTube.)

    That reminds me: WWE is really missing out on a good comedy character by not signing this guy.
