Having fell into a Dean Ambrose/Jon Moxley promo hole this past weekend, the less that he says now the better. Line at the level of “unless Andre the Giant’s ghost is in that battle royale, I ain’t losing at SummerSlam” work a lot better when you hit a home run almost every time. Over exposure is dangerous for everyone, but when you spew pure gold out of your mouth, rationing it out is what’s “best for business”
They’ve finally figured out that superheroes look best when they’re trying to avoid the henchmen. Thank God for Chikara.
***WARNING YOU ARE NOW ENTERING A SERIOUSLY WRESTLING DISCUSSION*** PLEASE KEEP YOUR EYES AND EARS INSIDE OF KAYFABE*** For all the internet nerds who complained about Daniel Bryan ending every week on his back with members of the Better for Business Bureau lording over him: that is why you book things that way. Wrestling nerds need to start to understand the difference between what they think they want (Daniel Bryan winning every week) with what they actually want (Daniel Bryan becoming the face of the company). It’s obvious to say after years of complaining about John Cena as Superman, wanting Daniel Bryan to be Spiderman is fifteen different times of dumb, but nights like this show it. They’ve managed to get everyone hot for the PPV, subtly introduced the Jumping Knee Kick as his finisher and made it seem like if he just gets the chance, he can win the title. It’s like a wise man once said: Long is the way, and hard, that out of hell leads up to light. I think his name was David Fincher. ***WARNING YOU ARE NOW LEAVING A SERIOUS WRESTLING DISCUSSION***ENJOY YOUR COMPLIMENTARY SONIC MILKSHAKES ON THE WAY OUT***
