  1. So what's are we discussing? The way I read your posts, you seemed worried about Bray, the money WWE would make based on his character and how he could even be a face with this character and attract Cena kids. What did I fuck up?
  2. So the first part: the ratings continued to decline. That "nose dive" in the mid 2000s: they were scoring 3s and 4s. After PG, 2s became more frequent. To the second point: that's what I'm saying -- smarks fill these arenas. The "You deserve it!" chants for Bray weren't a bunch of casuals. And if they were, that's even better for him. Leading up to WM and the Raw after would be a bunch of Bray marks, anyway. And with smarks being frequent ticket holders plus kids tending to cheer for whomever fights heels, I see no issue with him turning face whatsoever. It's long overdue, but better late than never.
  3. The highest ratings and most merchandise they made was when they were geared toward teens and adults; they're the ones with the money to buy whenever they want to buy. Kids aren't the ones filling the arenas and going to the PPVs and buying expensive replica belts. Wrestlemanias and the Hall of Fame are basically worldwide smark audiences. Even if I'm underselling it, kids will cheer for whomever is fighting bad guys anyway as they always do.
  4. Smarks are the ones buying tickets and attending PPVs. And cheering for a dark character isn't something kids haven't done. They just cheer for people who wrestle bad guys, anyway. A face turn is a long time coming.
  5. Everyone going after Trump has seen a rise in ratings:
  6. A lot of heels were over the way they were and became more over after a face turn. Keep him creepy and have him feud with heels is all they need to do.
  7. From this tweet: This includes physical and digital. It was published by Koei Tecmo in Japan and by Sony everywhere else.
  8. Then they don't have to do that, but Bray turning face seems long overdue, especially against Orton, who fans respect but have no problem booing as a heel.
  9. I'm not seeing the confusion. Bray is over, having Orton turn against him would push it more in that direction, and Orton could potentially put Bray over. Luke Harper could also team with Orton.
  10. WASHINGTON (AP) — White House chief of staff Reince Priebus asked a top FBI official to dispute media reports that President Donald Trump's campaign advisers were frequently in touch with Russian intelligence agents during the election, a White House official said late Thursday. The official said Priebus' request came after the FBI told the White House it believed a New York Times report last week describing those contacts was not accurate. As of Thursday, the FBI had not stated that position publicly and there was no indication it planned to. The New York Times reported that U.S. agencies had intercepted phone calls last year between Russian intelligence officials and members of Trump's 2016 campaign team. Priebus' discussion with FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe sparked outrage among some Democrats, who said he was violating policies intended to limit communications between the law enforcement agency and the White House on pending investigations. "The White House is simply not permitted to pressure the FBI to make public statements about a pending investigation of the president and his advisers," said Michigan Rep. John Conyers, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee.
  11. I didn't come up with it, but there's a good quote that goes something like, "I always thought Colmes was just the punching bag for Hannity & Colmes. Now I realize that he was holding down the hot air crazy balloon."

  13. You guys have found your second March d1pcast between the two of us.
  14. The man who was always the punching bag there. He seemed like a decent guy from what I saw, regardless.
  15. Could we do a Horizon impressions podcast soon as well? I'm getting the launch day and I know I'll be itching to talk about it to y'all! @The def star @Mr.Vic20 EDIT: Oooo! Along with that, I can talk about the open-world in the game and what games do open worlds well and which don't!
