PostSubject: Moment of Truth....   Tue Apr 03, 2012 9:28 pm


Ok so I was just wondering, how many of us are Professional Wrestling fans?
Do you think we should have a forum spot for WWE news? ... I added wrestling and BJJ to the General MMA forum... I was innetially thinking folk and greco... but what about WWE and TNA and AWA and what have you.... I think I remember Gecko being a fan... possibly a practitioner even.... but as you can see by all the ....'s i'm clearly uncertain of this... but also fairly open to it....
IDK what do you guys think....

I don't know man......

I don't want you to take this the wrong way, because I mean it stricly as friendly constructive criticism, but I think you're letting your Lesnar fandom cloud your judgement.

It's you site, and I wouldn't hold it against you or stop coming here or anything like that if you did add a pro-wrestling section, but I think it might de-legitamize the site a bit (especially considering it says "mma" right in the name).

I sympathize with your want to do this. If I owned and operated and MMA site, and suddenly my favorite fighter up and left, I would probably feel a pretty big desire to find a reason to keep talking about him. But like I said, that would probably mostly be because my fandom was doing the thinking for me.

That's just my opinion on the matter. Like I said, it's your site, and I won't change anything about my involvement here one way or the other.

I, personally, wouldn't want to do the up keep for that section. I don't watch at all, nor am I planning on starting. Wink I would probably have a member be assigned mod of that forum and they could do the news posts and what not.

He'd have to be a pretty dedicated member because the stories change almost hourly like Days of Our Lives.

Agree with Triggerman: Chrombro... Brock is gone. Goose is dead. Kirby is retired. Jack froze after Titanic sank. Sherk did roids and he sucks now. I know you're a hard headed Scandinavian (takes one to know one), but you gotta let it go. Razz

Laughing yeah thats my dry sarcasm
I just noticed a few other sites had WWE sections, thought I would toss it out there.

AND 2012 IS THE YEAR OF THE MUSCLE SHARK! DAMN IT! SHERK CAN COME BACK AND SO WILL KIRBY, YOU BLASPHEMING SOB DEP!

Edit: thinking about it though, it clearly has to do with Lesnar. Had he not went back I wouldn't even be thinking about it...

No, I don't think there should be a spot on the forum. This site is for fans of MMA and REAL fighting...not glamourized "dancing with the stars"...because IMO if you add a section for pro wrestling then you may as well add a section for that show too because it's the same thing. Only dancing with the stars has real rivalries going on.

You can put up a WWE spot.... no one will go there. I think we all chat about fake fighting when the fake fighters do something st00pid or interesting (like trying their hand at real fighting).

I started watching Stampede Wrestling in the mid 70's (yes I'm that old!), I watched the old school WWF stuff but when the UFC hit in the mid 90's I just couldn't choke it down anymore.

Now it's just crap and it hurts to even click by it passing through the channels.

Agreed Krieger...it's no longer the wrestling it was in the 80's when I used to watch it...it's now equal to the "programs" my grandparents used to watch....soap operas....like General Hospital and the like.

WWE isn't fake, it's real. It's real acting. When you call it "fake", you're judging it for something that it's not supposed to be in the first place. What it is is exactly what it's supposed to be. It's supposed to LOOK LIKE fighting, and it does. It's not supposed to BE fighting and just missing the mark. I guess it's semantics but it's always kinda bugged me.

Yeah, you're exactly right on that.
People seem to want to attack it and break it down for the wrong reasons.

If you hate it because it's annoying and soap opera-esque, then I'm with ya.
But if you hate it because it's not real fighting, then you've missed the point of it altogether. That's like hating "Rocky" because you found out that he didn't really beat Ivan Drago in Russia during the Cold War.

I dislike it because it's soap opera-esque and annoying...not because it's not real fighting. However the fact that it's not real fighting is the reason I don't think a section belongs on this forum.

I went with "It was pretty sweet back in the day."
The only thing that interests me is when the Undertaker will retire and his final Wrestlemania match. When he does retire he takes all of old school wrestling down with him. He is the final straw that holds any old time memories. When he goes... he takes everyones legacy down with him, all those old schoolers that he had a storyline with, a wrestling match with.

I only watch wrestling once a year (Wrestlemania via download).

Oh absolutely. I feel the same way (as I'm sure DEP does as well). It's not real fighting, and that's why it's not MMA or MMA related. But it is what it is; It's not supposed to be real, and to expect it to be real is.....well, unrealistic.

The MMA Standard does not need a Pro Wrasslin' Section.
Anything major will just be posted in the appropriate section.

Very Happy

I would love if we had a spot for WWE.

I dont watch it anymore, nor have I watched it in about 7-10 years, but if I had a place that I could come to to keep up with what was going on so i could chat about it with my nephews, etc i would be stoked.

If someone was willing to upkeep I dont know why anyone else would have a problem with it.

Yeah thats exactly how I feel about it too. It could also pull in a few new members, which wouldn't hurt. But nobody seems to keep up with it here....
