In light of a recent "discussion" in another topic, it has been brought to my attention that no one seems willing to list what is "good" in the WWE, thus agreeing it is bad. (That's not exactly what was said, but it's the general idea). Thus, Mr. Positivity has arrived, to break down what is currently good and bad(in my positive-bias, I guess opinion) Let's start with the decidedly worse brand, the Raw Brand:

Good:
Undertaker vs. Jeff Hardy-This feud was well-done, showed long-term direction from the beginning, and most of all seemed to accomplished it's good: to elevate Jeff. Now, I base the fact that it worked on the feel of the last show, the jury is still out on how many of the fans will buy it, but they did it the right way.

New Stars-Chris Nowinski, Sean O'Haire, and Johnny Stamboli are the new class of the Raw brand. All 3 appear to have a bright future and the fact that the WWE is putting these guys on TV (even if only on Heat for 2 of them) is a step in the right direction.

Booker T and Goldust vs. nWo-These guys have been the Raw brand MVP's for the last couple of months. They're hilarious every show, always entertaining. They do need to win some more, but it's the natural progression of their feud with the nWo. Now, if the nWo keeps beating them over and over, well, this could move into the bad category quickly.

Brock Lesnar, in general, and vs. Rob Van Dam-It's amazing to me how much Lesnar has improved since he broke into WWE Television. The guy seems to get better every week. He talks now, which further improves his character. Also, Heyman continues to entertain me with his ability to annoy. The feud with RVD has been well done since KotR as well, I'm looking forward to their match at Vengeance and don't know who's going to win, thus helping it even more. Lesnar doesn't need the IC Title, but he sure doesn't need a loss either.

Long-term direction-I know it has been very long since King of the Ring, but they do actually appear to be showing it for the first time in months. The Jeff-Taker feud being the perfect example.

William Regal-He's actually broken out a couple of good matches here lately! The guy has always had the mic skills and the facial expressions, but his matches just seemed way too slow to me. He's moved it up a notch lately, hopefully it stays that way.

Eddie Guerrero & Chris Benoit-Eddie's promos in recent weeks have been classics. They're so dumb that they're good. Benoit is just getting back into the swing of things, but he's looked very good so far. These 2 need a hot storyline, but they've been good on TV without it so far.

Less Vince, more wrestlers-Vince hasn't been on very much in recent weeks. He did cut his "Ruthless Aggression" promo, but that set the foundation for the direction of the company recently, thus it wasn't just Vince out there putting himself over.

D'Lo and Coach on Heat-Have you heard these guys? Give them Smackdown! now. These 2 have great chemistry together, maybe the most entertaining announce team in the company right now.

Molly vs. Trish-I actually care about a Women's storyline for once, and why? Because they can back it up in the ring. Sure, some people are pissed about the "big ass" storyline, but as was said in the Smackdown spoilers currently on the front of Slash, it's a storyline. They found Molly's weakpoint and they're exploiting it, just like they do with every heel.

Bad:
Bradshaw-The guy is awful. I know I'm supposed to be Mr. Positivity, but there's nothing good I can say about him. Okay, fine, how about this: "Hey...uh...nice boots."

Shawn Michaels-The guy is boring now, he just stands in the ring and rambles on and without any wrestling to back it up, it bores me to death. I wish he'd leave again.

Terri-Worst interview ever...no wait, she IS better than Lloyd from Smackdown. However, she's hideous to look at and that's never a good thing for an on-screen presence.

Tough Enough girls-They're not ready for WWE, period. Send them to OVW or HWA, STAT.

That awful theme music-Bring back the old Raw theme. I'm nitpicking here, but hey, I'm trying to be fair.

Now, I did this off the top of my head, but I got 10 positive things and 5 negatives things and a couple of them (Theme music and Terri) are pretty weak. Now, does that mean all is right with the WWE world, no. But, nothing is ever going to be all good, I think all you can ask for is for the good to far outweight the bad and it does right now. Feel free to respond with your personal lists, I'll try to do this again with Smackdown later tonight or early tomorrow. Until next time...

I would put Bradshaw on the good list. Good that he isn't in a sucky, mid-main event tag match every week. Good that WWE realized he isn't ever going to be a main eventer or even an upper midcarder. This is good.

Very good that the top attraction of RAW is RVD-Lesnar. Not Austin/Flair, Austin/nWo, Austin/Undertaker, Undertaker/Flair, HHH/Undertaker, Hogan/Undertaker, or anything else. Some of these weren't bad at all, but RVD/Lesnar is new.

Good that Kane will be back soon. He was getting dangerously over before the injury. Remember-Freaks Rule.

Bad that Austin is gone. It may have been a wake up call to WWE to lose him. He may not have had much left, wrestling wise. He may have had other problems out of the ring. But Steve Austin, the character, deserved much better a send off.

Actually, I think it's quite the contrary. I have noticed quite an abundance (relatively speaking) of "Hey, let's list some good HAPPY HAPPY stuff!!!!" threads lately that serve no purpose other than to explain that the WWE in some aspects is doing its job (which is to put on quality television). Why should it be noteworthy that there is entertaining stuff on TV?

I agree that RAW has been damn good since Austin left. (Not *because* Austin left, persay, although it was what forced them to put a lot more effort into it.)

Big Dumb Bradshaw (TM), though, is totally worthless. Maybe that cowboy shit gets a huge pop in Texas, but it makes him look like a huge ass in the other 49 states. They need to get him on Smackdown as soon as humanly possible. He wasn't any better in the ring as an Acolyte, but the APA were always entertaining.

Bradshaw is a guy who needs mic time. He is capable of working the crowd up pretty good. Not that his promos are really my style, personally. But they do go over well, and if they want to push him at some future point, I think it will be successful as long as they do let him talk.

Bradshaw has got to lose the gay cowboy look. There's got to be something better than that...

I'm a RAW fan, I've said it before but It's the show I choose to watch. Now to pick on your the stuff you called good a little.

I would like to say that it's good that bell to bell time seems to be up.

Also backstage skits seem to run smoother than before.

I don't like Chris Harvard. He currently has fastforward heat with me. If you asked me to put my finger on what I don't like I would be at a loss however. I'm not sure what it is about the guy.

nWo vs Book/Dust IS good. However, this feud had better pick it up a notch storyline wise or they could end up stalling out. I still think they're waiting on Kane though. The tag match two weeks ago was way better than it should have been.

On the bad I would like to add that moving Raven away from RAW when it looked like he was headed to something interesting may have been a mistake.

The Euro Title is still shit. Just move the belt to Smackdown already.

Terri doesn't bother me as an announcer if it keeps her out of the ring.

I couldn't agree more about the music

Why are bad shows any more noteworthy than good ones? Should we only come here and post when there are bad shows? My whole thought is if you're going to rip the shows you should also be willing to admit when they are good and vice versa. I mean, a month ago I was on here ripping stuff left and right, but I think the shows are good now and I'm saying so. I mean, yeah, the WWE is doing their job as you put it. But, we're fans, we should praise them for being good and rip them for beind bad. The job of every professional sports team in America is to win their championship, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't celebrate it when they do. My only thing is people need to see both sides of the coin. If more stuff is good than bad, that's good right? I don't understand the point of a negative attitude right now. They seem to be doing a majority of the things we whined about them not doing (long-term booking, pushing new guys, etc.) If they stop doing it, fine, I'll complain again, but until they do, I'm going to praise them for doing things right. I don't think weu should be ripping things if we won't put the stuff that is good over, and once again, vice versa. That's all I'm saying.

Well, I try and make it a point to clap my hands when WWE does something great (like the Booker-Goldust thing) but I give 'em a good stiff kick in the ass when they screw up.

The guy.. just doesn't have the look, at all. He looks like a white Akira Taue. If you're tall, but not obscenely tall, you should not be long and lanky! Get on the "special diet" the developmental guys are on(shit, even David Flair's starting to look built!)

Bradshaw on the mic?? for him to give us his Priest molest kids take. The less of Bradshaw of any kind the better.

For what's good.

I still think JR is the best play by play guy by a long shot, he made that Jeff/Taker match more special then it actually was.

Lilian in ring announcing and smiling extra hard when Trish is in the ring with her is nice.

I like the new music and the stage is sharp.

Chris Nowinski is a real cool character, love the shot harvard character.

Brock / Heyman - Heyman is such a fun TV personality and Brock doesn't get the credit he deserves, I'm not a fan of big men but he doesn't bother me. I actually enjoy watching him on the most part.

RVD/ Benoit/ Eddie - I could watch these guys in ring any time of the week. I even really like RVD "gimmick", it's just so different, I just always laugh when he opens his mouth.

BookDust - great backstage fun.

Even -Molly/Trish - this is a hard one, I love the girls, and they really are doing the best they can for what's given to them. But I can't really put this on good because the storyline is so stupid (even for wrestling), I feel like they ruined a real good thing. Trish/Jazz put the spotlight on how good inring the women can be if given an opportunity. Trish/Molly should have pushed it over the top and made it an amazing division, but the writers ruined it.. Soo maybe good mark for the athletes bad mark for the writers.

Bad- Terri - okay don't mind her doing backstage interviews at Raw. But Lilian HAS to do PPV's and Heat. Come on I don't want to see Terri more then Lilian.

VERY BAD - NWO - I'm sorry I can't get into the NWO. THey just look pathetic, with there hand signals and there trying to capture their youth. If your in college and you are doing handsignals to your friends, I think you are pushing it. But if you are 40 and doing gandbang signals. It's sad and lame, it really is.

It really looks like the Nwo characters are all in some time warp. The rest of society has moved on and they are still living in 1996. Wrestling world has changed in the past 5 years, I mean Trish/Molly/Jazz made a women division good on athletism. RVD is doing amazing different style, BookDust playing off each other is real fresh. Hell even freakin Undertaker rebooted his image. And You have THESE NWO guys doing there mid 90's catchphrases, with there mid 90s look. I look at the entire group as a sad bunch and I don't think anything could change my mind

Bradshaw on the mic just... nails down that sort of uncomfortable "lowest common denomenator" feeling. Every time he gets mic time, no matter how smart he's said to be, he comes across as the epitome of everything that non-wrestling fans think wrestling fans (and, of course, the wrestlers themselves) are like: Ignorant hicks that think running out into a field and pushing over a sleeping cow is the most fun you can possibly have without a woman, and may even give THAT a run for the money if you're drunk enough.

Every time he talks I expect him to bring up how he was abducted by them thar aliens. And, well... aliens and wrestling don't mix. There was a Sega Genesis game that proved that oh-so-well. So less Bradshaw is a Good Thing.

As far as JR's performance during the Jeff/Taker match... unfortunately, it sort of served to underscore how bad he's been. How long has it been since he's done *that* good a job, even WHEN Stone Cold was in the ring?

Right now... honestly, the announcing may well be the single least enjoyable part of the show, in my eyes.

NHS - I have been watching Lilian smile when Trish enters the ring for quite some time now but she does the same when some others enter the ring.
Now ofcourse I like it when two beautiful women seem to share a bond but what is different in her smile when it's Trish? Can you tell me?

As for Trish vs Molly. I think they did a nice salvage job..tere still is the big butt thought somewhere but most of the action is in the ring and Trish is just teasing Molly until she makes a mistake.

Bradshaw doesn't need to be on my tv unless they got something to do for him. Like wrestle in Texas. The whole cowboy image looks terrible. And Bradshaw on the mic? He probably isn't the worst guy they got, but he isn't the first guy that comes to mind when I think good promos.

Chris Harvard - well thought out..Regal v2.0 without the years of experience.
"I am better because I am from England" turned into "I am better because I am from Harvard"
He himself could use some training but the character and heat is there.

nWo - bah...fuck Shawn. After he returned he dropped the ball once again. Obnoxious little brat.
Nash? Get in the ring buddy and only then will I judge you. Not on work rate but on job rate.
X-Pac? Show? They are putting an effort in it and know their role. Help Book get over.

Lesnar.. Love the guy. Paul makes him. Just as Paul is making RVD right now by reminding folks that HE made RVD which makes RVD prove that he made himself and thus gets him over more.
Oh..Brock..keep learning buddy, don't stagnate and you will get there. Although the monster look might give him trouble in the future (how can I ever cheer for him as an underdog?=most faces)

Taker, Jeff are providing us with fun while they work out what to do with the title.

Eddie and Benoit. Untapped as of yet. This tagging thing is just to rev their engines.
Once they know where to go (and why wouldnt that be fueding with one another) they will tear it up.
Or so I hope.

Kane will be back..oh yes...I wonder if they will change his look? This would be the perfect moment..

Anyways..lots of good things to look at and look forward to. If things go as they should (no injuries, no tragedies no bullshit no writers block)

Good:

Booker T and Goldust- their backstage stuff is hilarious, something I never would've thought Goldust would be capable of.

Brock Lesnar- He's becoming better in the ring and I enjoyed his mini-promo a couple of weeks ago.

Benoit and Guerrero- I don't mind them battling the Dudleys2002 and Benoit was very good in his return Monday.

Trish and Molly- their feud has been entertaining and their matches have been good.

Last monday's ladder match- good work by both Taker and Jeff, I liked Taker giving props to Jeff at the end.

Bad:

NWO2002- I hate how they don't lose as much and that they haven't been humiliated by Booker T etc.

Bradshaw- Trade him to Smackdown so that he'll be reunited with Farrooq. They would be good in a feud with Team Canada.

Terri and D-Lo- Terri is awful as an interviewer (see her interviews with Eddy Guerrero) but D-Lo is worse as a commentator on Heat.

Jury's Still Out:

TE Girls, and Chris Nowinski.

Because putting on good shows is what the WWF is SUPPOSED to be doing. I'm not saying everything we say should be "WWE SUX!", because there's plenty of good stuff and the bad stuff has been declining lately. It's notl ike I have a problem with saying the stuff said in this thread. But viewers shouldn't have to sit down and think to make a list of what WWE's doing right.

Should they have to sit down and make a list of only what the WWE is doing wrong? Do "Hey, LET's list some bad SUCKS, SUCKS stuff!" threads (which seem to be the majority) serve any more purpose than positive threads? To point out that the WWE is not providing perfect TV? Are there any shows that produce perfect TV?

What most people do on these boards is critique the product. So once you enter the role as critic, if one wants to be a good one, one should point out both the positive and negative aspects. If one only emphasize the negative, one comes off as bitter and miserable. Plus one would make some of us wonder why one watches, because afterall, even if you are critiqueing the product on a message board, you are not a paid critic, you don't have to watch. Why watch a product that you hate 100%?

It's not like if Roger Ebert likes a movie, he just says: there's nothing to talk about, it did what it was suppose to do. He tells why he thought the movie was good. (and it's rare that a critic can't find something negative about a positive product, or something positive about a negative product, and they will usually point that out, to be fair).

There's no rule saying you have to be a good critic. But you shouldn't be surprised if those that are not good are criticized themselves.

I agree with whoever said the jury is still out on this guy. I wanna' like hm, especially after Tough Enough. But, his mic work leaves room for improvemnt. I just can't hear half of what he says and then what he does say isn't bad, it's in character, it's just...Not good. But, as long as he keeps beating Bradshaw he can consider me a fan.

See, to simply say something sucks is a bad idea. If you say something is bad, offer an analysis pertaining to why, and propose a solution you're fine. But you're right that there are too many people who announce their hatred for something apparently just for the sake of hating it.

The only way anything ever gets better is by having its problems fixed. It's fine to say you enjoy something and to dwell on the positive things, but if it hampers your ability to see that you still have negative things, you will become content with where you are now rather than improve further.

LOL... It's just something that I've noticed for a long time now. Everyone else comes out and she might give a courtesy smile to, but most of the time she's looking around or talking to the ref or thinking of the opponents wieght and city. But for Trish 9 out of 10 times she has this huge grin on her face.

A Trish entrance is usually contains the same thing, *hit generic woman theme* (Give Trish good music, please), Trish is usually announced first (as champ or not) Trish comes down the aisle very bubbly and cute. Enters the ring acknowledges the crowd, while Lilian looks at her with a huge smile. Then the go to WWE Raw is brought to you by..., then Lil introduces opponent. At times Lilian changes things up by caling Trish, 'Strish Stratus', but that's forgiveable (lol)... YOu talk about bond, I also think it's makes it extra cute that they say they are best friends and travel buddies.

But recently there's been another person that's making Lilian and me laugh. I've been getting a kick out of RVD entrances, he comes to the ring all stoned. Pointing at himself while Lilian says his name and then giving her the thumbs up for not screwing up (lol). Then he gets in the ring and has a one way conversation with her, while pointing at himself and pointing at his title. She's looking at him with this confused smile like "ooookay". No one else seems to acknowledge her, Even Trish might walk by her give her a little nod or something but doesn't start up a converstation like RVD does. RVD character is just so bizarre and funny, he's just some friendly dude
Oh the things I get distracted by to ignore Lawler...lol

NHS..
I will (once again) keep an eye out for that extra smile or bit of eye contact.
Pesonally I like the pose Trish strikes when she awaits her opponent. Hands on her knees and a tough look in her eyes. Makes her look focused and lets you focus on the cleavage..Clever camera angle/thought uot..

Anyhoo...I noticed RVD talked to Lilian too yeah, I also like how she gets all scared when a big scary heel gets too close. Hey, does she still screw up entrances as much as she did in the past?
Just like with JR, I guess it helps there is only one Canadian Chris on her roster..

Raw seems to be getting back into the shape it was the first weeks after the split though.
More wrestling, feuds and matches that make sense.
But yes, the nWo should job more, but if they would they wouldn't be a threat at all..so it's a fine line to walk when you got 'jobbers' like Show and Pac doing the fighting.
Btw..I really like the fact that Show and X-Pac seem to be comfortable with the funny role they have right now. I mean..for weeks in a row X-Pac has been called a rat and they even made fun of the 'XPac sucks' thing. And Show..eheh...cheeseburgers..rofl.
Perhaps they know that in the end Goldust will turn on Booker and join them and all the great promos will end while they stand victorious....blah..that better not happen.

Things I like
1 Book/Dust they are funny and hopefully will get Booker over
2 The newblood on SD. Some are good, some might be, all are green but it is new people on T.V.
3 Jaime Noble. His white trash gimmick makes me laugh.
4 Brock's push. Pretty much same reason as 2.

Things that give me hope
1 Hopefully the WWE will fix the tag division. H&E seem like a good start.
2 Juvi is coming. The CW division wrestlers are good and if pushed the division will be better.
3 Return to old school wrestling. Managers and stables are good if done well.

Things that worry me
1 The split seems to be faltering. Well, it was never going anywhere but it was a good idea. Split the damn PPV except for the world title.
2 The women's division. Good wrestlers but bad writing. Stop the TNA.
3 Euro title. Regal is good but the title is being ignored. Move it to SD already!

Things that piss me off
1 Lawler enough with the puppies. He pervness is gross and makes me either mute or FFWD in any match involving women in any way shape or form.
2 Mark Henry. Sure he isn't on T.V. but he sucks.


I would guess the WWE will improve. Vince has to or he will start to lose a lot of money. He is still making a profit so he can lie to himself and say it's because of Austin or some other reason but if nothing improves then he will lose money. But I might be wrong.



I just have 13 words for you. How much wood would a woodchuch chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

They had some nice matches in there. I think any damage was done by the whole MIA thing.
