FOLEY: HEY WWE….WHAT THE F?



HEY WWE….WHAT THE F?

Yes, I’m going to put a brick through my TV. It’s just going to have to wait until tomorrow. I had every intention of putting a brick through my TV tonight, after seeing that Daniel Bryan was not even entered in the Royal Rumble match, let alone going to win the thing. But, upon seeing their dad with a brick in his hand, my younger children got a little bit scared, thinking their dad had lost his mind. A rather spirited debate about the wisdom of following through on the promise to put a brick through my TV ensued with my wife – and, as is usually the case in marital debates, I, being the husband, did not emerge victorious. Honestly, the points she made about mercury and glass fragments everywhere were pretty good ones.

But I’m still going to put a brick through my TV. It’s just going to have to wait until tomorrow – when the kids are in school, and I can take the TV outside the house for the actual throwing of the brick. Granted, it’s not nearly as dramatic as doing it live, right after the Rumble, but at least I will be keeping my word.

As I mentioned on Twitter, I’ve never felt so disgusted at the conclusion of a WWE (or any) PPV. Like many of you out there, I just don’t get it. This Daniel Bryan thing is a phenomenon. You get it. I get it. The fans in Pittsburgh (yes, I was thinking of writing “RIGHT TH…but I’m just not in a cheap pop mood) got it. But tonight, for the first time, I had to admit to myself that the powers that be are just not going to get it. And that makes me sad. I’m just honestly sad, just flat out fucking sad (yes, I dropped an F-bomb there to emphasize how F’ing sad I am for the guys who bust their butts night in and night out – Ziggler, Punk, Bryan, etc – with no hope of getting their shot at this year’s Mania.

You know who else I’m sad for? Me. In my two years as an official WWE Ambassador, I never once had to lie about my enthusiasm for the company or the product. Now, although I am no longer officially an Ambassador for WWE (believe it or not, my only official role in WWE is as GM for Saturday Morning Slam, a contract that ends in one month) I was till looking forward to being part of the biggest event of the year. I’ll probably end up going anyway. But I’m about 1/6th as excited about it as I was just a few hours ago. I wanted so badly to hear 75,000 WWE fans chanting “YES” – and seeing fans walk away absolutely ecstatic about the outcome of a PPV for the first time in a while…a long while. But when given the chance to make it happen (unless they’ve got something MAJOR up their sleeve) WWE’s answer tonight was a resounding “NO, NO, NO”.

    Perfect! Exactly how I felt last night and that crowd let Vince, HHH, Steph just how they felt about it too.

  2. Kind of feel like this is all a work. Mick as Bryan’s new manager?

    I’m actually so disappointed at the end of that ppv. It’s seems as though the powers that be have a hard time grasping what the fans want. Unless it has just turned into a money business, either way it’s made me not want to go to Mania anymore, just afraid that I’ll have spent so much money to be let down by a mediocre ppv at best

    The WWE Authorities don’t care what the fans want, its been like this ever since Vince McMahon monopolized the Pro Wrestling Industry, they just care about making money, they’re just like politicians. They only care about money and whatever we want it’s just background noise for them.

    If people are truly upset, don’t go around busting up the stuff in your home that you worked hard to buy STOP BUYING the ppvs, magazines, toys, etc. STOP WATCHING the weekly shows that’s the ONLY way to get the attention of a billionaire. STOP the steady stream of revenue and Vinnie Mac will take notice….. Just Saying.

  6. Drew says:

    I totally agree with Mick, but I would throw the brick through a window at WWE headquarters.

  7. G says:

    The only thing I can take from this other than it being completely ridiculous is does this lead to Bryan vs Taker at WM? Taker has been rumoured to have a future star end the streak and although Bryan is already a star, it’s a different kind of platform. Just a passing thought, as I doubt it’ll happen.

    G, Bryan is the only person I would support ending the streak, but MAYBE next year.
