    Default Pre - Match Promo

    You know one thing I've noticed recently is we don't see very many pre-match promos on PPV anymore. There was a time where after the video package played they go live to the back for an interview with one of the competitors. I think it added to the feeling of importance to a PPV match. Can't remember the last time I've seen one of these. Anyone else agree?

    Sadly, that's being replaced now by the in-ring PPV promo. Very nauseating.

    WWE read my mind and did a pretty cool pre match promo with the Rhodes last night at Battleground.

    They also did one with the real americans as well. And they've been doing it for a long time now, it's not like it stopped really. It may not be as often but it still happens.

    Thanks to Bender and Stefan.

    I'm talking about a "live" interview with one of the reporters backstage right before the match starts.

    They do that almost every week on Raw.

    I'm talking something like this. Not some random promo in the middle of raw or some pre-taped crap.

    Whenever i see a promo talking about an upcoming match on ppv i just think why didnt they do it on TV? I've already paid for the PPV, this promo isnt going to entice me any more

    They do that...

    An example is CM Punk Vs Daniel Bryan at Over the Limit last year, it had it.

    Thanks to Bender and Stefan.

    A year ago? So it has been awhile and they don't do it as frequently as they once did?

    I understand what you mean, consistancy is what you want. Last time I remember it being done well was at Survivor Series 2011. I wish they would do it more often as well, especially for PPV main events. it's a small thing that can help put someone over for the night or even more. Less likely of a chance to be awkward and have a wrestler sink in front of a crowd also.

    I agree. I like the pre match and post match promos and think it adds to the feuds.

    Pretty sure Rock had one of these at the Royal Rumble earlier this year.

    Also, the Rhodes brothers vs the shield had it.

    I think I understand that you want it done often, but well, what can you do?

    I like them as well, and think they always add to the matches somehow.

    Thanks to Bender and Stefan.

    Maybe you want the 80's style promo where two guys hark catch phrases at their opponents and then hit the ring. Next, we get a shot of the tag team champions and mean gene looks tiny beside them.

    Mean Gene was so great. I miss him. His voice, his look, his mannerisms all so great.
