I didn't want to comment on the Revival thread because I was gonna bitch about how overrated they are and there is no proof that AEW or NJPW would use them better than WWE
THIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIS!

I've never understood the fuss, even when they actually got to work on NXT the duo never connected with me. I think they can thank Cody and BTE for the pull they do have...

700k is a TON of money, but especially in their shoes at their ages, I can imagine how frustrating it is to sign up to wrestle then NOT get to wrestle...
I don't understand how any one can watch their NXT work and not see their brilliance.
"Brilliance" is a strong word in my opinion. I think they're competent... I think they did what was expected in the old NXT Taping format where they had four months to work out a good match... with that, I see potential, but I don't see a team with a million dollar price tag. I see the poster children of "Top Guys" that Vince doesn't want AEW to get because the angle's already there...

They're a solid, consistent midcard tag team. I get what they're going for, but I never bought it because they aren't pulling it off. The Revival always came up to me as a barely improved version of Blake and Murphy and not this great throwback to 80's Crockett/NWA.

The only time they kinda felt like a throwback was during a random enhancement match on NXT TV that felt like it went on forever (it was most likely five minutes at best) where they attacked Jobber #1's leg or knee for a century (with the crowd not giving a single shit), then he finally got the cold tag and Jobber #2 ate their finisher literally five seconds later for the loss, rendering the whole "targeting a body part" portion meaningless. Meanwhile, most of their Takeover matches were the usual "let's do moves with no rhyme or reason with a finish that comes out of nowhere" that I hate so much and revolving around the babyfaces' story (Enzo and Cass, American Alpha, Ciampa and Gargano).

Did they mostly "revolve around the babyfaces' story?" Yes. But to jot see the stories in their matches is utterly baffling to me. They ALWAYS worked a limb.

I actually think the complete opposite of that. Outside of that random jobber match, the only big match I can recall where they work a body part was at Takeover Respect (I think, the one with the first DRTTC) with Revival attacking Balor's knee... which he completely forgot selling in the main event, which was even more jarring after one of my favorite non-big matches just before between Breeze and Crews where he targeted Crews' back who sold it nicely and had to change his gameplan to win.

Back to the Revival and those big Takeover matches. Keep in mind that I have only seen until TO Toronto because that's when I tapped out with NXT, so here's a summary of my reviews of their matches :

vs. Enzo & Cass @ TO London : I'm kinda vague on this one even though I was actually there for the show and reviewed it "properly" several months later. (***1/2)

vs. American Alpha @ TO Dallas : Good match overall, but felt indyrrific because... they traded moves without trying to tell a story and the finish came out of nowhere. (***)

vs. American Alpha @ TO The End : About as indyriffic as the previous one and even worse with the beginning that felt overly choregraphed. (**1/2)

vs. DIY @ TO Brooklyn : Revival came out to almost no reaction and were barely booed during the "epic" presentations. I actually mention the jobber match here, saying that this one is the complete opposite because Revival randomly decided to attack Gargano's knee after TWENTY MINUTES even though they did jack shit to that limb before, which led to the abrupt finish. (***1/2)

vs. DIY @ TO Toronto : Same shit, different time. Commentary actually mentions that Gargano's knee is not fully healed and yet, the Revival isn't taking advantage in the slightest despite Gargano being the FIP for the vast majority of the match. They finally try something with a belt shot to the knee during the third fall and... it led nowhere and Gargano just made Wilder tap out like it was nothing. (***)

Meltzer on WWE's "Ruthless Aggression" documentary:
I've never seen a WWE doc getting such vehement negative reviews as the one on the Ruthless Aggression era. I've been reading Jim Ross' book that should be out soon, and let's just say his version of the same events not only is 180 degrees different but in some cases even acknowledges the mindset that led to the issues.

Shayna putting Karen in her (his) place...



...I love it. Not just for the character work here, but for the bad-guy wrestle-lady telling this guy how to parent. My kids aren't shielded from bad words, they know what they are and that good kids don't say them. Kids will never learn right from wrong if they're never exposed to the "wrong".

The drastic difference between Jericho and Brandy's reactions is hilarious.
Jericho: Nice detail, not the best figure of me, but definitely not the worst. I give it 3 stars, nice job!
Brandi: *sobbing*

I also love how uncomfortable it is that somebody else is merchandising The Bucks... I feel like they were waiting for the cameras to go off so they could ask the real questions... "How much will these cost?"... "How much of that are we gonna see? I can already tell you it's not enough..."

WWE stopped letting their guys appear on non-WWE affiliated podcasts months ago. If she somehow slipped through a sympathy-gap in that, or if she's on a legend's deal or something, it's not surprising at all they'd pull their guys from a show who's host is most recently associated with AEW...

they pick and choose, I think it's always good as long as the podcaster is still seen as a wwe-person, but it takes nothing to lose that.

I thought they closed the doors when Lillian started hers... like, this was all very recent, maybe just before Vickie was on Dark? Victim of bad timing, but good timing to be a victim?

Why not? I've always loved Vickie out of character. No joke, I've rewatched the episode of Dark with her and Janella on it several times because I liked the commentary so much. She did ONE EPISODE, and I'm comfortable saying she's my favorite female color commentator of all time. She had great chemistry with those guys, I really liked Janella too.
WWE missed the ball on her.

I didn't even know she had a podcast until this story, and now I'm inclined to look it up.

I mean, WWE doesn't even cancel events for decapitated journalists, but this could be interesting.
