I spent years supporting TNA before I gave up. I've supported Lucha Underground. It amounts to nothing. Where is TNA now? They aren't ****. Lucha Underground is year to year and probably won't be around too much longer.
They're poorly run businesses. Not much you can do as a fan to change that.
As I keep repeating, there are only three major promotions in the world that are both profitable AND growing:
New Japan Pro Wrestling
Ring of Honor
Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre
All the rest are either too small to be considered major, profitable but not growing, or neither profitable nor growing.
I think Cena could do pretty well in comedies.
Maybe Lucha Underground would be less expensive to produce if they cut out all the Hollywood stuff and just make it a studio wrestling show.
That seems to be his future. Nothing wrong with that. He can do that well into his 80's.
Haku is the Rock's uncle.
Bullet Club members Tama Tonga, Tanga Loa, and Leo Tonga are Haku's sons, making them the Rock's cousins. Bad Luck Fale is Tama's biological first cousin (Tama is an adopted son of Haku).
The Rock definitely knows who Bullet Club is. Hell, he was even in WWE with Cody Rhodes for a while.
Maybe he knows, I doubt he cares. He's so far away from the industry, that I don't think he has time to watch any wrestling. Besides, he's bigger than pro wrestling. Hell, he's bigger than Okada!
The Rock > Okada in terms of mainstream appeal.
The only way the Rock comes back to the WWE is when he goes into the WWE Hall of Fame, which is a given. It's a matter of when.
You doubt he cares?
They're his family, literally. He loves Haku so much he bought him a brand new truck.
And he absolutely watches wrestling because he has tweeted about Lucha Underground episodes in the past.
When I talk about him not knowing the Bullet Club, I am talking about Kenny, The Young Bucks and Marty Scrull. I am not certain he knows who they are. Of course he knows Cody and the Guerillas of Destiny.
But he's bigger than pro wrestling and this may enrage you but he's bigger than Okada.
People say that the WWE hates it when people have success outside the WWE, and yet they are not bothered when Chris Jericho and John Cena go away to do their outside stuff and they get a huge ***** every time the Rock wants to do something with them or even mentions him.
We get it, the Rock's bigger than Okada. You dont have to keep repeating it.
Brian Zane of Wrestling with Wregret has an interesting video on pro wrestling in sitcoms. I didn't know the Munsters or Beverly Hillbillies had a pro wrestling episode.
I wonder if that shirt will get Kairi in trouble?
Why would that enrage me? When have I ever implied that Okada was bigger than the Rock, or that I would care that he isn't?
If you're trying to troll you're really bad at it. Otherwise you're just spouting random nonsense, which is pretty typical. Either way, doesn't really bother me.
I wonder if the wildfires will cause issues with promotions over there in California?
My brother and I have talked about this before, and we're not convinced The Rock bought Haku the truck. We're thinking it went more like
Rock: "Hey man, you like my new truck?"
Haku: "You mean MY new truck?"
Rock: "Yes, sir. It's a nice truck. Here are your keys."
Kurt Angle as Colonel Sanders
Heath Slater as the Chicken
Still waiting for Shelton Benjamin to appear. I remember reading that he once had heat with WWE Management for playing video games, but since it's the thing to do these days, that won't be a problem for him anymore.
Jericho, Cena and The Rock are draws for the WWE. WWE can't really afford to publicly hate on those guys as they are still dependent on old talent like them for Wrestlemania appearances and part time runs.
Lucha Underground feels like a more expensive to produce show than TNA/Impact is.
I'm sure The Rock recently brought Tamina a car too.
The end result better be some adorable stuffed kitties.
You seem to be forgetting that this is the Rock appreciation thread sir.
Rhino can't use the Gore anymore. They've got him finishing matches with a spinebuster.
No doubt it's because the Gore is so much more impressive than Roman's weak ass spear.
