    Default WWE Doing Away With Scripted Promos?

    Assuming this is true, it's great news.

    Promos and storylines desperately need an overhaul and this would be a great start. It comes across much more real and makes the characters much more relatable knowing they can put their own spin on promos rather than reading straight from a script. And starting from the bottom is the best way to do it and will help the younger guys become much more comfortable on the mic.

    Again, assuming this is true.....Give the man the reigns Vince!

    Don't worry, you'll find more reasons. People always do.

    Even if he becomes infallable, people will just hate him because of his nose.

    Good news. Seems like when Vince is gone, WWE will actually be in a better place.
    Thanks too Fresh Prince

    I sort of agree with this move. I still think there should be some guidelines. I think the more experienced guys could be given free rein but any midcarders should be given some bullet points to hit or something because otherwise it would have the potential to bomb or someone could say something that they really shouldn't say and get into bother.

    Too bad Vince is a health freak, and probably won't die for another 30 years.

    This is the way all promos should go including speeches by public figures. That's how Dr. Carson does it and he's become a popular figure because of his speeches. He uses bullet points as well.

    They just hired a Vice President of Family Friendly Entertainment today. PG is going nowhere.

    Although there is a rumor that the position was strictly for Saturday Morning Slam.

    CM Punk said it in his 2011 pipe bomb promo

    "I'd like to hope that maybe this company would be better when Vince Mcmahons dead!"

    I support no longer scripting promos.

    The article still made me groan at HHH at the end of the part Miss quoted, though.
    That's all, folks.

    Wrong, "Believable and serious approach" = Nightwolf *groan*.

    But thanks for the generalization, I love it when people do that!

    Me thinks you can thank the Brad Maddox incident for this one.

    Yes, Benson. Nightwolf hates everything that is serious, and looks down upon us who enjoy things that happen to be serious.

    Wait, I just did that generalizing thing didn't I?

    What's wrong with that? Aren't we currently crucifying them for being too cartoonish?
