Cody returns (as Cody or Stardust, whichever) and answers Cena's open challenge. Considering the situation, Cody will be the biggest face in the building.
What do you think would happen in the WWE moved RAW and Smackdown to the Network and just got rid of tv altogether? Or maybe just producing tv recap shows like they used to showcasing Raw and Smackdown among other stuff on the Network (Think Prime Wrestling, WWE Mania, All-American Wrestling, etc.?) Would they go out of business? Increase viewership to the site and therefore could increase their subscription fees? Nothing at all?

have a crazy idea how WWE can turn around their declining business. I know it
sounds unusual, and probably not the kind of thing the Creative Team would do,
but just hear me out.
Instead of pushing HHH's and Stephanie's friends, or guys that are related to
The Rock, WWE should watch and see who the WWE Universe(what we old-timers
used to call "the fans") are reacting to. Push the people the WWE Universe
want to see, rather than the guys who HHH is frotting.
Another bizarre idea is this: if some young Action Soap Opera Pure
Entertainment Superstar starts getting a good reaction from the WWE Universe,
DON'T cut the legs out from under him, and have him go on a lengthy losing
streak. No, if the guy is getting a strong reaction, take that as something
positive, and try and build something, and potentially money-making, out of
that genuine reaction.
Do you think this could work?
Been catching up on alot of old clashes and NWA ppv's. I have to say with the lack of old weekly NWA programming available on the network it makes it sort of difficult to recall how all of these feuds came about due to alot of the ppvs back then not having a video package for every match on why two guys have a beef to begin with. My question is since WWE own the footage to these ppv wouldn't they also own the 30 minute countdown that aired before the ppv as a way to entice the viewer to buy if so do you ever see a scenario where that content is added to the network possibly as an option to watch before the ppv. Probably wishful thinking and I might be in the minority but I always thought those old school half hour countdowns were an awesome way to catch up on little things you may have missed.
Anyhow you have a guy of Bryan's choosing be able to defend the title for him. As months go on this guy gets even more attached to the belt. Thinks of himself as the actual champion. One Raw Bryan returns to take his title back. As he goes to take it back, he's blind sided with a shot right to the head. Boom, insta feud.
Either way as long as I get Bryan vs Lesnar next mania, and Cena challenging for Taker's streak I'll be happy (What, they actually threw away the streak before doing one of the last true main event matches they still had? Well Vince deserves losing all that money now.)
Okay, I just thought of a brilliant idea that would make WWE ridiculous amounts of money:
Selling pairs of Daniel Bryan foam fingers for "YES!" chants.
A good read for those of us who didn't get into wrestling until the '90s.
And, there's a clip of this Jumping Bomb Angels/Glamor Girls tag title match included in the article:
I was fairly surprised at how good (great?) it was considering it's a WWF women's match. Might be a good match of the day candidate for the blog.
Also wouldn't it be awesome if WWE put out a best of SN dvd? I mean between WCW and NWA there has to be a couple of decades worth of shows if I'm not mistaken? Anyways man thanks for being, from what I can tell, the only entertaining wrestling reviewer on the web for a LONG ass time!
Let's say Daniel Bryan wins the Royal Rumble and beats Dolph Ziggler for the World Title at WrestleMania. The Rock beats CM Punk for the WWE title, but loses to John Cena at WrestleMania. Cena uses the help of Wade Barrett and whoever else to get the title from Rock, because – like Austin with Vince – he doesn't think he can do it on his own. Could Daniel Bryan, Sheamus, and Ryback carry the company as the top faces if Cena turned heel? There was a time where turning Hogan heel sounded crazy, but it ended up making WCW a gazillion dollars.
I've decided that I'm going to make my millions by creating the ultimate reality show, so when it comes along there's documentation that I thought of it first. I think I might have pitched this one on Facebook or somewhere before, but I want to make sure it's well documented when someone steals the idea. It'll be called Reality Gauntlet (or Jack Of All Trades, I'm not entirely sold on either name yet) and here's how it works. Current shows are based on the premise that a bunch of reality whores are really good at one skill, when in fact we know it has more to do with TV readiness and personality and such. So why not create a show that makes you be good (or at least not the worst of, say, 12 people) at EVERYTHING? You get your usual cast of 10-12 wacky people, and each episode sees them having to master a different reality show genre. It'll have to be played for broad parody to escape legal trouble, but it's probably do-able. So each week the contestants get a crash course in that week's skill, and then boom, off they go and the worst person at the task is eliminated, until you're left with the winner, who is the person was at least able to get by enough to pass each week. You can do:

I’m shocked he didn’t mention his fake experiences in the Olympics in 68 or 72 or whatever year he’s remembering this week. Or maybe he did and we couldn’t tell, who knows.
