    They should just replace RAW with SPW.

    No.

    It's the guys and girls in the locker room derping around, and Luke Gallows finally getting to use Sex Ferguson.

    All for a KFC ad. Vince probably knows next to nothing about it.

    He hardly said a few words, yet Fandango did his best to get reactions from John Cena. Those two were great together in reaction cringe comedy.

    Jericho's best was the first episode. I loved Rusev. Wish TJ got some more lines, and wish Breeze got some more screen time after those two skits.

    John Cena was my favorite part about it. He just killed it every time, the building of frustration in each episode, just freaking out constantly in the last.

    The final episode was probably my favorite. The main pay off joke was too good. I couldn't stop laughing.

    Hope they dust off another tape some time in the future. Because this was gold.

    Stuff like this is why heels don't get booed the way they should in WWE anymore. If fans see Luke Gallows in this doing stuff that is funny how are we supposed to believe him as a heel on RAW? Breaking the 4th wall this way ruins characters on Raw and smackdowns.

    I know, I'm no fun.

    I agree with you 100%. This is the reason why Undertaker is never or rarely seen outside of actually wrestling in the ring. He knows that doing so will kill the mystique of his character(some might argue that him getting old is killing the mystique of his character, but that is for another day).
    At this point, I'm not sure there is anything that can be done about it. How do you bring back kayfabe? Tell everyone that all those years of guys talking about the business in shoot interviews, on Espn etc. was all fake news brought about by the anti-kayfabe establishment?

    Kayfabe's been dead for like twenty years. Suck it up and move on.

    I disagree. I think it's all about storytelling.

    If you tell a good story? People are gonna hate or love whoever they're moved to hate or love.

    It's all about the story and the one single reason heels don't get booed at certain times is because the story telling in most wrestling companies aren't good.

    I don't think Chikara's "The Flood" were the most developed characters my any stretch of the imagination. But they got booed.

    I was way more excited for Lethal Leap Year than I am for WrestleMania. Some of these characters, namely Fandango's and TJ Perkins', BADLY need to make their way to the main shows and the Ric Flair paid impersonator was spot on.

    They need to do more of these.

    When people say "Southpaw Regional Wrestling is the best thing WWE has done in 10 years", I want to ask them if they actually like wrestling at all.

    And when someone says "This is how wrestling SHOULD BE."....seriously? Guys like John Johnson as champion? That's what you want? Are we supposed to live like it's actually actually real again? Are you sure you just didn't get old?

    This was a fun parody, and it would be awesome if they make more. I loved it. But this is great in its own pocket. Let's not act like this is NXT.

    The issue with Gallows/Anderson isn't their personality, it's the way they've been booked.

    They're losers and even when they managed to win the championships, it was executed in such an underwhelming fashion after the damage had well and truly done that it was met with a universal 'meh'. As a team, they were never THAT great in NJPW. In fact, they were usually the weaker parts of the show, but they're far better than what we've seen in the WWE. I'm surprised they never gave Anderson a few singles wins as well. A big part of his appeal in New Japan was that despite being a tag guy, he could hang with guys like Nakamura and Tanahashi. I felt the WWE missed the boat by not booking a short Anderson-Reigns feud.

    Never the less, heels can still be entertaining while also being dicks. It isn't mutually exclusive and it bothers me that such a misconception still exists in this day and age.

    I was picking my dad up from the hpsital today, and we got KFC. I tried the crispy (woo!) tangy (woo!) honey mustard (woo) Georgia Gold chicken.

    It wasn't bad. If it supports SRW, I'll get it again. Thanks, Naitch. Woo!

    You know that would be HILARIOUS. Sort of like how Bruno and Superstar went on a tirade in early 90's. I do think kayfabe could be used today somewhat, but everyone's to lazy to do 24-7 characters. I mean, there was a reason why "The Bionic Redneck" Steve Austin was so beloved. He seemed like the real average joe who worked hard against bureaucratic red tape OR how about The Rock looking and acting like a movie star who REALLy ended up being an A list movie star. It could be done.

    If you want some authentic laughs there is a youtube channel that actually has a lot of stuff that WWE won't even release from the 80's from its own library and other regions. I won't say the channel because I don't want to removed. It has the real classics The Network is missing and some of that funny by accident stuff.

    Cena was on Fallon tonight and admitted the jacked the idea off him.
