I just couldn't stay away. I clearly you guys way too much.
These two posts caught my eyes within seconds of logging on this morning:
The thought-process on display in these posts make no sense to me. They don't account for the fact that sometime over the last 25 years or so, wrestling's evolved a little. WWE produces more original television content now than at any time during their history. While taking something slow is a concept I appreciate, deciding you're just going to pump the breaks on something until the next of the "big four" PPVs isn't really viable in 2014. First of all, things burn out faster than they did back in the day. Second of all, it's inorganic. Moreover, it conditions people not to care about the content between those "major" shows. A smart booker would have a general idea where they're going but always be willing to switch things up, play it by ear, and cut things short as need be.
Can someone explain to me why so many wrestling fans think the SummerSlam midcard needs to be damn near set in stone in February?
"Eventually Reigns is going to catch up with Ambrose and crucify him" seems like a more useful mindset than "WE'VE GOTTA PUMP THE BREAKS TILL SUMMERSLAM, LONGTERM-BOOKING HURR DURR WANKWANK!!"
