    Even by the standards of a) all things Hulk Hogan since (whichever year prior to about two decades ago of your choice) and b) having him do a tribute to Okerlund that promo on Raw was fucking dire.

    The fucking pop that he got.

    How quickly the sheeple forget.

    Edit: I've just gotten to the bit where he's doing a promo about Gene setting matches between other dead wrestlers, FUCKING HELL.

    The whole thing was a mess.

    Much like the vast majority of the show to be fair.

    I do not understand the whole Revival angle they've been going with for the past few weeks.

    Why are heels constantly being screwed over? Are we meant to sympathise with them (assuming anyone cares)?

    It's so stupid.

    If Benoit survived and somehow got acquitted (OJ style) , he'd get a huge pop too.

    Naming all the dead people was nice, but it then got a bit weird when he said Gene could get fat because there are only two ugly dead women to go round.

    It was an odd Raw, is that awful shaky camera a new thing? The tag title match is also booked very oddly, who is supposed to be good team in all this? And why, during a lumberjack match, did Bobby Roooooooo manage to disappear for several minutes?

    Still, at least that part wasn't ruined by Bobby Lashley, and not in a 'ooo, aren't I a wrong un' sort of way, just in a bland boring way that made everything worse.

    The Revival have been the heels who get consistently screwed over without it being part of any story or gimmick for over a month now I think. On the WWE scale for bonkersness it rates fairly low but it IS bonkers.

    I watched the video tribute thing because WWE are normally pretty good at those but all it really did was highlight how much better the show would be if it had a proper presenter.

    I hate that shaky camera whenever there's action, I can't work out if they're trying to make everything look action-packed or playing safe in case anyone whiffs like a Shane McMahon punch.

    It's to hide the botches. They never used to bother before HD, but it's super obvious now when someone completely missed a punch by a foot.

    I love that NXT UK uses the shaky camera for when Dave Mastiff walks to the ring.

    HE'S THAT FUCKING MASSIVE.

    I liked on this week's Raw when Rollins and Ambrose fought to the back and the camera stayed on them for an absolutely eternity. This being directed by the same cunt who does about three cuts a second when stuff is actually going on.

    Surely that was pre-taped and they just had a rest for a while. That match was good until Boring Robert came out to beat up Seth Rollins who I must now assume is a loser with not a friend on the roster.

    That whole set up is weird. The WhatCulture bit I read put it fairly succinctly.

    Seth Rollins hit a curbstomp and pinned Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose Monday night, then stomped him again but was stopped by Bobby Lashley, who lost to Elias at TLC and on Raw two weeks ago, and was beaten to a pulp by Rollins last week. Elias lost to Baron Corbin, who had been on a losing streak recently.

    So who is supposed to be the person standing tall here? Lashley physically was the one standing at the end of Raw Monday night, but he hasn’t exactly been setting the world on fire. Rollins seemingly is the guy being groomed for a Universal Championship match, but he’s still battling for the IC title, and since he can’t win that, he had to lose Monday night.

    I loved the bit backstage when Rollins attempted to roll some steel at Ambrose but 'HE JUST MOVED OUT OF THE WAY' despite the fact that he moved almost instantly from his prone position.

    I spotted that as well, he kept pushing the thing despite Dean very obviously not being there (although if he'd suddenly been right behind him I would have forgiven it). Not quite as silly as Ibushi and his moonsault to nobody but still.

    I have spent the last couple of nights watching random wrestling videos / interviews, mostly relating to the 1997 > 2004 time period.

    Reading about the Angle / Puder incident was entertaining - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3rW4Ei_Clo

    I am very tempted to buy a WWE Network pass and watch the entire attitude era again.

    That sort of shit (the puder incident) just makes you roll your eyes when you read it. "Aw man I wanted to show this guy up on TV but he showed me up. Get him, boys. "

    The rule for that era is WWF - Good main event guys, terrible undercard. WCW - Trash main event, great undercard.

    The big take away from watching a load of that era is how much WWE was spoiled by having The Rock and Austin in the company at the same time. It seems to have given them a few ideas that they are incapable of moving away from, biggest of all that you can portray yourself as a heel company/authority figure and have it work. It worked once with the biggest face of all time and the biggest 'heat angle' of all time.

    I tried doing the same Boom. I forgot that I used to watch the 1 hour version back in the day, there's so much dross.

    I used their 'Best of' function after that which is quite good.

    That app is a work of art though. I've used it on everything from phone, appletv, monster desktop to crappy laptop that can't even run pornhub and it works perfectly on them all. Every Sports Broadcaster should be hiring that developer.

    During said binge I got to see quite a bit of Sunny. Jesus she was attractive. The peak moment might have been the midget tag team match where as you can see in the below gif, she wears a tiny pair of hot pants which clearly wasn't revealing enough as they have zips up the side so you can get a bit of extra thigh.

    You can't just go about saying the Attitude Era wasn't perfect like you've left of your rose-tinteds, you idiots. The IWC will come and get you.

    Seeing that she had a porn video followed by watching said video is the biggest high to low I've experienced in some time.

    You'd think The Rock being absolute garbage every time he returned despite doing the exact same gimmick would have at least cracked a rose-tinted lens or two.

    Saw this on Smackdown and the official WWE Universe (sigh) Twitter account has it on there so either there's a weird exception for a Canadian Destroyer (even though you'd think it's more liable to bad things happening than many normal piledrivers) or Rey and Almas have had their arses kicked but the WWE have just decided to roll with it.

    I wouldn't watch full Attitude Era shows, maybe the Monday Night Wars show instead which cover the highlights so long as you can put up with the revisionist stuff like DX turning up hours before Nitro being what put WCW out of business.

    I thought Smackdown was really good, and couldn't believe it but the Bar winning is the first time a champion has won a non-title match in WWE since 1979.

    Him being so brilliant is part of the problem with most of the stuff that came after, you could give him a shopping list to read and it would have been amazing. Their problem has been that they haven't realised that you can't treat your top guys like that when they aren't The Rock.

    I'm just starting on SD now and they really couldn't have come up with a better heel character for Daniel Bryan?

    The first week they nailed his heel shtick and then they just killed it making him an angry vegan.

    I was really enjoying Monday Night Wars but I didn't get more than half way through. A few reasons:

    1) The sheer amount of re-used audio/clips. I have to assume they could only get 20 minutes with HHH and have to use that for everything. They use the same few lines every other episode.
    2) The 'War' storyline is over by episode 3
    3) Then we go back in time for individual gimmick reviews with a biography of DX, Foley, Hart and Austin without revealing anything new that you couldn't skim off a wikipedia page.
    4) An hour long documentary on Goldberg? I'm done.

    I've probably seen this before about the Rock but for a guy of his standing he was also one of the best at making the guy across from him look a million bucks and taking the fall to do so a lot of times. Maybe he was just better chasing the title, I'd need to watch more of the TV again I guess, but I was reminded recently that his combined WWE title reigns come to just under or just over a year and about a third of that was with one reign.

    And yet they let the Revival have an AEW reference on their arses this week. Which presumably means that nobody who matters knew what it meant and couldn't be arsed internetting it like I did.
