Vince McMahon Says WWE Is “Too Pro Wrestling”

Vince McMahon Says WWE Is “Too Pro Wrestling”


[Applause] hi guys I’m Adam will Warner from what culture and I’m antimony from what culture don’t forget the news out about when you’re on the go as a podcast by simply searching for what called resting on either iTunes Spotify already a podcast on but coming up today WWE have got something big planned for Friday Ross ratings have declined after the Hell in a Cell disaster is aew dynamite show tonight in big trouble is edge peeing a rather curious visit to WWE’s doctor and Becky Lynch is next challenger for her role Women’s Championship may have been revealed this is the news we’re gonna kick things off of story Adam will for given your recent turn given your descent to broken Adam will born I don’t think you’re gonna like a whole lot know I ranted a lot yesterday and I’d really really don’t want to hear this I hope you’re ready for this then brother because we’ve got a new report here from frightful select the ever reliable folks over at fight well they’ve been doing a little bit digging a little bit of snooping a little bit of Louie scooping backstage trying to find out what the feel is coming out of how in the cell how the locker room feels about the whole thing how it has gone down with the wrestlers and where one talent was asked about Vince McMahon’s force on the matter he said that the big man has insinuated several times that he feels that some people on his roster and perhaps his product in general is and I quote and get ready for this to Pro Wrestling WWE is – Pro Wrestling now before you before I throw the pitch for you to hit the homerun Vince McMahon has obviously always been keen to emphasize that his is a sports entertainment product not a traditional wrestling show a lot of that is complete nonsense because it is a wrestling show it has wrestling matches on it so therefore but I’m I’m just gonna let you go man just you know have lit the fuse Eve I’m sorry I’m sorry – Ari – I’m sorry but I’ll write that this morning like like about what don’t even go a long round I just what you your company is called World Wrestling Entertainment I get it the word entertaining is in there I get it you are sports entertainment you’re about putting smiles on faces but the essential element is wrestling it’s like a premier league they’ve tried to make it all very global Ursula but they never say oh to make to football for my life preemies go pro wrestling yeah I’m just gonna say something then about he’s passing and I I don’t want to or don’t be relieved of that but the XFL is gonna start soon as well yeah asking me to football isn’t it it’s a it’s such a weird statement because it is the pro wrestling business I think a lot of people will take this statement as well he’s referring to guys like Seth Rollins and ricochet and all these other people who maybe aren’t the larger-than-life well this is the thing these people like objectively I told me you can look at Seth Rollins and say like he’s a larger-than-life character or a traditional sports entertainer or this or that next thing but here’s the thing Vince McMahon put that guy on top Vince McMahon helped assemble this talent roster it’s his show so surely if the product is and the roster is to pro wrestling don’t go dump oh is it am i right in thinking that I read this yesterday and they’ll be see this is sort of you know not no official word on it it’s just sort of reports from backstage I read somewhere that the main event sort of when exactly how Vince wanted it to go yeah and look how the rat was reacted to anyway even me he was reportedly laughing at the response to it and stuff he’s a troll but the thing is like Brian Alvarez some diss up well on the Brian of initial actor after at Hell in a Cell pay-per-view he thinks she’s just a bunch of marks you think she’s gonna come back regardless of what happens now we have to come back because we are paid to cover this this promotion and so forth I said this to my wife I said that’s the I mean I’m doing it she was like you have to be watching for your job I was like yeah I know that’s the thing you’re not happy about it WW programming could be the worst thing in the world and we would still have to watch it like we don’t have that option but if you’re here at home and you’re really pissed off Vince McMahon’s like hey well they’re just gonna come back next week anyway you think sure it’s dirty Mike methinks you are blind boilers that’s why he does stuff like this but yeah to pro-wrestling you know it’s a wrestling business let’s move on because we’ve been told by the bosses here this is getting a bit too newsy so we’ll move on and talk about this week’s upcoming Friday Night Smackdown and panty do we do we are planning something big ahead of it they announced a press conference to be held at the t-mobile Arena at midday on Friday listed attendees include Triple H Tyson Fury braun strowman Rey Mysterio Cain Velasquez Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman now this would all seem to suggest a sort of blending of more sportsy style product it’s very UFC to do a press area ahead of a big event and it would seem that that’s probably gonna be leading towards not only obviously Smackdown that night but mainly towards crown jewel yeah you think you’re gonna get the The Fury versus strowman and Velasquez versus Lesnar matches extremely us it’s even in Vegas for God’s sake it’s even in Las Vegas fits in with everything we’ve heard about Fox wanting a more sport like presentation fitting as like a little counter to aew as well who’ve trumpeted this real sport thing constantly but you know what I think we also see those two matches coming we all see crown jewel coming and so forth I’ve got and there’s something useful about recently as well what if on Friday they announced the return of the brothel what’s bark done up to these days bar being up to these days man yeah I mean look at that line up price and beauty professional boxer Cain Velasquez professional fighter Brock Lesnar beast let’s be honest we put our houses on the fact that there’s gonna be a scuffle at that press cause it’s gonna be something is never gonna be like yeah see you at crown jewel is gonna it’s gonna be Nate Diaz walking inspecting this weed Baker way oh yeah it’s like just in Conor McGregor hood up Oh give me all that you know I don’t know you do know I love word press conferences I’m really excited yeah that’ll be fair I can’t wait to see what they do it’s something new something fresh it’s something interesting yeah yeah I just realized that I’ve got an egg story not you rather ship so last week saw them post an okay number it was the season premiere I had a lot of height I had some guest appearances all this cool stuff it drew 2.57 1 million across the fiower broadcast an average of that number there was a bit of a decline this week after the Hell in a Cell catastrophe numbers are down and the average viewership according to show buzz daily is 2.3 3 4 million as a client of over 200k from last week’s inflated season premiere so much more in line with the average viewership for the first year the past few months not a disaster by any stretch of all ratings in general these days are kind of a disaster because they’ve lost someone like 2 million viewers in four years which is terrible and what about what you’d expect you’d think the Raw and Smackdown will have another inflated number for the draft which is coming up on the next couple of episodes that she told them through it’s gonna be super interesting to see where these numbers stabilize that after these big poppers have come true because you have the season premieres you’ll have the draft what comes after that you can’t call whole cog in there the Hrothgar you could probably call whole dog in every week but the rocks not coming up every week Steve Austin’s not showing up every week I can’t wait to see how this pans out particularly aew than their success in the 18 to 49 demographic I especially are by 5 because obviously mainly on Smackdown because of the New Deal on Fox and they’ve their projected figures etc etc but I’m also really intrigued with Monday Night Raw that will inevitably go up for the draft next week I think but if they keep doing shows like Monday Night Raw was this week it is going to plummet I realize the majority the big talent is probably gonna be on smack and for obvious reasons but it was just dreadful this week it was just such a holding pattern of a show wasn’t it like they were kind of relying on you getting something out of that big confrontation with fury and brawn and if you didn’t enjoy that at the end you were probably came away from massive negative impression in the show everyone was like a 5 out of 10 it was just kind of boring in my case already forgotten everything to happen and when they know wrong and you know a lot of people have said that well you know they’ve got the draft they’ve got crown jewel they’ve got Survivor Series after that they’re coming off Hell in a Cell and there’s a tough show but they put themselves in that problem like you can’t use that as a reason to let them off the hook itself yeah and I realize they’re in this awkward spot like you say draft there Helen SL they just put on some great wrestling matches then yeah other than just oh is Lana shagging bobby lashley and then roof steps right no getting cooked any more too late your roosters been cooked time your roosters been cooked ridiculous right let’s move on and talk about a TW TV show dynamite because it could be in big trouble ahead of tonight’s been pointed out by E Wrestling news.com this is due to a couple of potentially huge baseball games some of MLB’s National League playoff series is gonna be going down tonight and if the game runs over that it’s going to be moved on to TNA yes this thus holding up the rest of the broadcast they’re gonna be on TNT so that happens tonight you could well see dynamite stars a lot later than intended you know you can take this one of two ways either devout aew fans and I’m sure some people would have switched over following that bloody awful Hell in a Cell pay-per-view will just stick around and wait for it but you can see the casuals saying huh what else is on potentially switching over to NXT the Wednesday night war could get very interesting yeah I really can’t wait to see how these numbers emerge if indeed the dynamite show is debuted because yeah that could really affect the shores of your ship as you say particularly for casual fans who might then get hooked by NXT really weird situation kind of unfolding everything interesting situation here’s hoping that dynamite just debuts eight and that we have a more traditional head-to-head without any snafus without any confusion with regards to the ratings and so forth but you know I think the aw show III really enjoyed it I thought it was really quite great it was a good start and I think that one would encourage a lot of people stick around and I also think for NXT because I thought when X T’s product was arguably as good as if not slightly better than aid of it a lot of people would agree even if the ratings weren’t at quite as good don’t need to change anything when NXT just keep doing what you’re doing it’s anticipated that a do you will probably blow them out the water for the most part for obvious reasons but don’t chop and change NXT geez you’re only gonna scare off the devout viewers that you already have for sure they may well having said all that switch things around and put what they were gonna put this like the big main event potentially first to try and retain you is it’s gonna be very interesting wrestling Wars are just awful simple I love it wrestling lures edge has nothing to do with that so this is a really weird transition but the the rated-r superstar according to PW Insider if you’re sick of all the talk of him potentially returning well I’m sorry here’s a little story about it edge was in Pittsburgh yesterday he was on WWE business according to PW Insider and Janu who else is in Pittsburgh yes nope WWE dr. Joseph malloon a guy who could realistically give edge clearance to return to the ring so speculation speculation speculation still take it as gospel as anxious coming back to rest baby but it’s it’s another little breadcrumb in the trail that could well week two edges return oval edge has denied it as we reported last week although Shaughnessy returned to be a big surprise you would deny it exactly so only I want him to come back everyone wants to everyone would love all the our old stuff our favorites to come back but only if it’s medically right yeah that’s the only thing they mask as long as you say exactly that right let’s talk about the W e raw Women’s Championship Becky Lynch has torn through all of her opponents recently even submitting Sasha banks inside Hell in a Cell on Sunday in what was well one of the real highlights to be perfectly honest on awesome even though you may be disappointed that Sasha was happy with her next and Bailey to be perfectly honest but resting observers a Dave Meltzer has suggested that Becky Lynch’s next opponent could well be one half of the WWE women’s tag team champions the woman who just looks amazing now and slightly insane if you saw that photo of her on reddit squared circle Aska that is a viewed I would love to see run back and it was referenced on Monday Night Raw as well this week yeah that Royal Rumble match was really really awesome it was at the Royal Rumble dicing as much fun yes yeah yeah cuz Becky long lost and then won the rumble it was really good stuff and yeah I’d like to see you again ask her back in the spotlight somewhat in this after winning the Tag Team Championships is a he’ll know that’s pretty cool the mist it’s pretty cool yeah I’m all for it if we get another bang or macho’s it cool thumbs up yeah exactly I think it’s about down time I start pushing ask her again and you’ve got loads to work with in terms of Becky Lynch as that man character is kind of torn through everyone except for that little asterisks on her record which is asker as you mentioned at the Royal Rumble I’d like to get run back but we’ll have to wait and see because everything could change to be perfectly honest due to the draft right let’s move on to your Twitter questions at what code should WWE of course if you want to get in touch hi – Daniel Holland who’s giving us our first question today who says quick question as WWE like to throw two random wrestlers who aren’t a tag team at all then push them as a combo which would you have for Bobby Lashley and rusev oh just cuz like it just seems like the kind of random crap they would do doesn’t it like I mean I wouldn’t necessarily like to see it but like hey these guys are like in a love triangle now and they’re like only from us and stuff now I don’t really want to see that I random tag teams always like the the little and large pairings so I’m going to go wave titus o’neil obviously obviously who could be the newest member of titus worldwide Drake maverick wrestling a lot more yeah you funny be really he’s a cheeky little scamp I need to fit right in with that whole Ty’s world wide dynamic for sure and I guess I kind of have to give a serious answer here to not be a pilot yeah it’s not be a balun but you know like if they’re not gonna throw Daniel Bryan and Roman reigns in a title seen any time students that type match was really quite awesome yeah give us to give us the graveyard dogs 2.0 in full dog the tickets not in it I don’t I don’t have a better name for them four rings and price oh yeah vegan dogs the vegan dogs move on Charles II Arnold gives us our second question of today he says if you were to brand a brand a monthly box service for a wrestler what would it be what for and what’s the tagline charles’s is braun strowman’s steak box is this like one of those free they go luke cream yeah exactly Wow I’ve got one whilst you’re thinking of it okay picture the scene yeah hope you want to recreate ghosts with your partner okay who wants to clean with an educational one good which is Soros every week yeah every month you can you dinosaur a little toy playset at the ends you can make a little thing it’d be really cool our Roman reigns dog accessories because who knows more about dogs yeah tell you what free ww8 final questions they hate comes from Justin at Walter who’s expressing a lot of said if it felt like wre fans right now says what’s the next logical step for the feed I personally think being cooked by doing kissing a bad idea I mean what is the next logical step for them where the hell are you go from this amazing um touch point doesn’t make sense actually when you put it together Paul Heyman’s right now I it’s so hard they dug themselves such a deep hole with this and I do think that maybe there is still some lingering fan support for fiend and maybe this is what I’m telling us yeah I think yeah I do think the characters a bit diminished and so forth but the fingers they’ve kind of reached the the point where they have to do something different rather than just having him kill up show up and kill people every week but that’s kind of what he needs to do at the same time it’s a really difficult situation you know what perhaps the best thing to do is just book the impromptu rematch on an episode of Raw and have the fiend wind the wing issue that one maybe he comes out with Seth Rollins like he’s barred and backstage he’s dragged him behind it he just puts him in the ring and Pinzon me that might work I just yeah get the title on I think I saw this suggested somewhere was it be like oh you know what if if Bray cuts a pro inside the Firefly funhouse and said and and says you know Seth you tried to take everything from me you tried to end my career so I want to take everything from you which you concludes of course with the universal championship but begins with a mandible claw in Becky Lynch oh my goodness do me I can see them you don’t mean doing now because they like me like oh these two is shagging don’t forget it alright let’s move on to today’s and finally I think we’ve done this one before but it pops me every time I see it do you want to see how finn bálor got around town before getting his US driver’s license Andy Murray yes I do well you know some people take the bus some people I don’t know ride a scooter find out I guess I left without Bert wow he looks like Albert’s son love this image is that a former NXT announcer Jason Albert indeed yeah indeed legend policy oh lord tensai that’s a different personally how’s
