  4. I thought Survivor Series sucked other than the main event, but with that said the main event was f--king awesome. One thing I didn't like though is Rollins was down for about 5 minutes before the pin, I wish something else happened to him so it looked more 'realistic' or whatever. But still, f--king awesome. The crowd pop didn't sound that huge at first on TV but got a lot better once he was in the ring. The match itself was also great other than Big Show's 1000th heel turn (followed by his 1000th time crying on TV the next night). Rollins and Ziggler were both amazing and holy shit I'm so happy for Dolph finally getting the push he deserves.

    Curious as to what the big Sting marks like Koolo and Showtime thought of his debut.

    Looks like Sting/HHH at Mania I assume.

    Also, why the f--k is the anonymous GM coming back? So stupid, I'm sure it will eventually lead to the authority's return but no one wants the anonymous GM back plus it was technically revealed as hornswoggle, are we just supposed to forget that? Raw was horrible for the most part.

    reports were initially that sting would come back, screw the authority at SS, and be revealed as GM the next night on raw by vince. who knows though it looks like that changed.

  6. Yeah I read a report that there were many last minute changes to the raw script, never seems to work out well when they do that.

  7. I thought the crowd sounded shitty while watching it on the Network, but someone had posted a crowd video on YouTube (which WWE has removed) and that place was going nuts

    I thought raw was good, the annoying anonymous GM was quite clearly intentional to be annoying. Thought Raw was pretty good.

    H did say we'd beg to have them back.

  9. The crowd at raw was one of the worst in recent memory, holy shit they sucked.

    AJ Lee on the mic was great though, hope they let her talk more, she's always good.

    Is @Balzter here by the way?

  11. Finally found a video. It's a crowd video, but that makes it even more epic IMO

  12. ^Even with that video, I still think the crowd was more quiet than they should have been, the section it's filmed in sounds loud but overall there's definitely been much louder pops. Even about a year ago or whatever when Bryan was doing the 'yes' chant on top of the steel cage after leaving the Wyatts, that was probably at least twice as loud as the reaction Sting got.

    Oh well, still a cool moment and curious to see what he does next, guessing he might not show up again until January but who knows.

  13. @Kon I think a lot of the problem is a lot of the WWE fans nowadays are young, so besides seeing him in the promotion for the WWE 2k15 video game, they really have no idea who Sting is. When I went to RAW in STL a few months ago it was just a few weeks after WrestleMania and a small "We Want Sting" chant started up and the kids behind me started chanting with them, and then asked their parents who Sting was.

  14. What do you guys think of Ryback by the way? I don't think I've ever seen a more awkward forced character than the way he's been lately, doesn't seem natural at all. I don't know if he's just a bad actor or not convincing or what, but holy shit I can't stand him. His promos are so bad too, hope his current push dies as quickly as his last one did.

    I'm certain the crowd was as loud as it could have been. I feel like people don't realize that stadiums like Wrestlemania/Survivor Series it's hard to sound that loud when the arena is that big.
    The DB yes pop was in a smaller arena at a less important ppv iirc.

  16. Danny that's not true, Mania is still the only show that's in a bigger arena although I bet that changes next year with summerslam. All the other PPVs and raws/smackdowns are in arenas with 20,000 or less. Survivor Series was in the scotttrade center which is less than 20k, and I saw a report that it wasn't sold out either so probably closer to 15k.

    The DB pop I was talking about was on a raw by the way.

    I felt the Sting appearance was kind of random or that it could have been made to be bigger, but I suppose we would all feel that way since his WWE debut has been fantasized about for so long. Don't get me wrong though I was completely shocked when it happened and it was definitely an out of nowhere moment. Won't mind Sting vs HHH at all!

    @Kon, ryback has been making me lol hard lately. Kind of growing on me.

  18. Honestly haven't watched RAW in 3-4 weeks. I've been DVRing it, but based off what I read on twitter/what my friends tell me, it just always seems like a show worth skipping.

    And yeah Scottrade Center isn't a huge venue for a WWE event at all. When I went to RAW in April the crowd was really shitty there, granted it was also a pretty shitty show looking back on it. Royal Rumble 2012, on the other hand, the crowd was crazy all night.

  19. Tommy, are we still gonna do threads for raws and PPVs or are we just keeping everything in here? I'd prefer to at least have threads for PPVs still assuming we're allowed to, and maybe raws too as long as the threads are semi active, but whatever you guys think is fine too.

  20. @Kon I think we should just do PPVs for the time being, unless wrestling gets its own section
