Originally posted by TorchslasherAs you will remember, the second choice was "have them be a tag team" and it lost. So this week they basically went that route and did the wacky tag team option. It has happened in the past as well. They need to just do the angle and stop acting like they are giving the fans a choice as to how the storyline will be shaped.
I disagree entirely. I would think that the tag team option doing so well last week is exactly why they're now tagging and going for the titles. They clearly wanted this to be a rivalry rather than a team, so the fact that they actually seem to have listened for once shouldn't be discouraged.
Daniel Bryan sharing the same bed as Kane would last roughly fifteen seconds. Once Kane did his traditional 'Make the bedposts burst into flame' before lying down, Bryan would be in the next hotel over.
Have I mentioned how nice it is that we know Lawler is doing better now, so I can feel comfortable with more light-hearted discussions like this?

I wouldn't disagree entirely, as I said they seemed to want them to fight in spite of the polling for that show, but you're right in that after some time they figured it out.
At least it was better than their usual ones which are things like:
What kind of match should it be? #noholdsbarred #noDQ #hardcore
Or: Which opponent for [HEEL WRESTLER] #heelwrestler2 #lowercardface #maineventface
The concept is fine but you have to give different & fair options and roll with whatever the fuck the people choose.

Eh. My grandmother's boyfriend had a heart attack while landscaping someone's lawn. When it was over, he got back up and finished the job. It wasn't until he went to the doctor the next day that it was confirmed as a heart attack.
Lawler's attack was clearly much more serious, but a heart attack isn't necessarily the end of life as the sufferer knows it. People run marathons after having heart attacks. If the doctors clear Lawler to wrestle, then it's most likely safe to do so. It's not like Lawler is putting on high impact, fast paced iron man matches.
Not that I'm saying they should put the title on him. They can get plenty of mileage out of the story without doing that. Personally, I'd like to see Lawler take on a managerial role... sort of a reverse Heenan where he recruits faces to take out the heel champ.
I just watched this 2 nights ago. Kinda funny to see kayfabe in full force on network TV. Been along time since that has been standard. Hogan sure came off like an asshole for being a baby face at the time didn't he?
