Jeremy: so watched that AJ segment again. i don;t understand why they did that. They buried a successful show and in process turned the heel champ face
Kevin: That segment was awesome & bizarre because of the reasons you listed.
Jeremy: I understand they want to get a feud going and that makes sense but damn. She didn’t say one incorrect thing. Even heels will distort truth but she didn’t.
Kevin: I do think that’s the odd thing about the show though. For all of its’ vapidness, it’s one of the better reality shows I’ve watched.
That’s not saying a whole lot but it is giving the ladies a personality.
Jeremy: I am getting a little worn down. Maybe the formula for those shows is set the players, conflict, resolution. They always wrap up their issues instead of long arcs. So it comes off really scripted. They have personalities then go on TV and have completely different ones.
Kevin: It’s really tough to keep track of the Funkadactyls because they’re the only ones on the show who have different stage names than their real names.
Jeremy: The thick one is Trinity? The other one is annoying and too skinny.
Kevin: That is the other funny thing, I know them by their real names but not their stage names. Ariane is the lighter skinned, smaller one. Trinity is the darker skinned, booty having, Uso dating one.
Jeremy: Cameron? Naomi is Trinity? But look, who cares cause, well, Trinity….delicious.
Kevin: Yes she is.
Jeremy: Of the women on the show she is about the only one to even consider dating. Natalie would be fine if you liek pushovers.
Kevin: Nattie would be fine but you’d end up hearing her say “Put it in my Hart Dungeon” and I’d go limp.
Jeremy: As long as she meant that ass I am fine with it. I do admire how all of the men on the show are doofuses excpet for the main eventers.
Kevin: Do you consider Jon Uso a main eventer? He seems fairly likeable. Every other guy though is an idiot.
Jeremy: He has been OK and no chance he is a main eventer, I just meant Cena and Daniel Bryan
Kevin: I didn’t think he was in that category but had to ask since he’s been fine. Cena has gotten more time or is more vocal than Bryan so he’s turned me more.
Jeremy: Cena has been the star for me. he steals every scene. Him essentially telling Nikki to slow down was classic.
then he teaches her Chinese as well as giving her essential life lessons that a nine year old could give.
Kevin: Kind of says something about their parents that they didn’t get a lesson a nine year old should learn
Jeremy: Part of me hopes this is all a set up and the end of the season she dumps him or he gives bad advice and it all blows up.
Kevin: She’s not going to break up with him so option 2 is a possibility.
Jeremy: Yeah I had those backwards. One other important part of the AJ Lee beat down last night and you touched on it in your Raw review is that the Bellas were terrible. I kept commenting how AJ is right there get to walking broads. Instead all they did was screech from ringside. It was embarrassing.
Kevin: “Come say it to my face.” How fucking dumb. That’s reserved for when they do the promo from satellite or back stage. Hell, even if AJ would have had Big E standing behind her it would have made more sense. But he wasn’t and she was on the damn stage. I about died from laughter when you texted the comment about them skipping after the beat down.
Jeremy: Yup no Big E
Kevin: That isn’t even a half assed response. It’s not a response.
Jeremy: Have to think that was on purpose as well, she’s standing on her own with it. I am not even giving the Bellas a pass even though the other three just stood there.Show some god damn emotion bitches
Kevin: At least the baby faces looked disgusted and waved their hands at her as in “Get out of here, we’re wrestlers too” so even though it was a weak response, it was a better than the Bellas.
Jeremy: I am not sure giving the “talk to the hand” motion really qualifies as better. Nattie had somewhat of a smirk on her face but that was about it.
Kevin: Anything is better than dancing “ring around the posies” style after getting a verbal beat down. It’s not even a good response but it’s better than dancing.
Jeremy: That was douche chill inducing. Then it made me think of The Bellas interfering in a match using a duck call or something?
Kevin: I don’t remember that if it happened. Wasn’t quite sure of the Bellas & Eva Marie’s outfit choices but they did stand out and have some style.
Jeremy: Well Eva Marie will stand out based on her hair and height. Her heels prevented her from skipping which made that scene just awkward.
Kevin: I wish I would have re-watched it just to catch that. Eva does look like a stork out there compared to the rest of the lot.
Jeremy: She looked like a Waterpillar out there with the Bellas dancing all over the place
Kevin: I may have fallen over laughing from the stupidity of it all if she started doing the sprinkler dance as they danced around her.
Jeremy: It isn’t exactly her fault but she should have been more prepared. I figure they were having a good life or a healthy cringe during that.,
Kevin: They all should have been more prepared.
Jeremy: Isn’t the rule of live entertainment “Always be prepared”? I am still chalking it up to a lack of talent.
Kevin: Yeah, I’m thinking that’s why the WWE isn’t featuring them. The whole division blows.
Kaitlyn deserves better than the usual scorned woman schtick but I’m pretty sure she’s not the next Trish Stratus.
Jeremy: I was wondering why AJ and Kaitlin were not on the show. Aksana as well, get the international flavor.
Kevin: How dare you forget about Rosa! But it makes no sense for them not to use the whole division. Rosa, Tamina & Layla, with a possible late arrival of Summer Rae would have gotten all of the division on the show.
Jeremy: Oh wow. yeah forgot about her, that cast would have made the show so much better.
Kevin: Only thing I can think of is that they thought too many “characters” would be on the show if they did the whole division.
Jeremy: No I meant excuse the entire first cast outside of Trinity of course. I suppose there is always next season.
Kevin: The WWE doesn’t like to renew shows that are doing well like NXT so this one will probably get cancelled too.
Jeremy: Well the ratings dictate a renewal but it is on E! so may be out of their hands.
