Tag team wrestling is an artform in itself. I hate working them. It's not just remembering your own spots, you have to remember your cues to get involved, ring positioning is vital. If you blow the pop tag you might as well all give up and go to the back because the whole match is blown.

WWE buries tag teams because there are few effective tag team specialists. The Usos are an exception. The Dudebusters were terrific until Caylen Croft got future endeavoured.

he's going to have to lose either that or the xplosion championship series though, otherwise he'll have earned 2 title shots.

i can see him getting into the final match of the BFG series and losing to gunner, but winning the TV title through the xplosion series

bischoff was in talks with goldberg a while ago though, so you never know...

do you not get to choose any title shot you want with the xplosion series?

But i agree it'll probably be Gunner who wins the BFG series, though i'm still rooting for Morgan

i'll be happy with crimson, gunner or morgan. just as long as its not RVD really.

and yeah, but that doesnt mean they'll give him a world title shot, low ki went for the IC title when he was in wwe.

Who the fuck are you to judge these people?
Who the fuck are you to call these people sad, considering you put THAT video on youtube, which actually put on this forum and heartily mocked.

i'd fucking love an autographed album from a famous wrestler.
A personalised t shirt from said wrestler? Fuck yes.

And awesome, they'll get their name in a fucking album pull out. What the fuck have you got to show for anything?
"Hey kids I sure did put some scathing youtube videos up"
"What's youtube daddy?"
"Oh it's this thing that was popular when I was young"

They have that shit to cherish forever.

So fuck you for being some needlessly judgemental cunt of they want to spend their money on, you self righteous prick.

i wouldnt take joe seriously. either he's joking most of the time, or he's actually quite insane. or he's drunk.

also, a few superstars have been released from wwe. kozlov, gail kim, DH smith, melina and chris masters are all gone, although apparently gail kim quit and was not fired.
