    No, and that's my worry. The most common rumor has it that that's the direction they plan to go with her.

    Her and The Rock against HHH and his +1. Not a great start to Rousey's WWE career if her first match is a one off that serves no real purpose.

    @pateuvasiliu I know, I'm just talking useless shit. I'm just sad that this might be it for Paige in ring. That was definitely a shit happens moment.

    And yeah, just do her like they're doing Shayna- a monster heel with a giant chip on her shoulder that just ends people.
    I meant hype for the "entertainment" in general.

    That was so long ago as to not even be remotely relevant. And while it's certainly not for everyone, millions of people do enjoy it and that's really all that matters.

    Agree on Asuka, though I've never been a fan of Sasha, if only for her retarded hip swing. As far as Paige, I'm surprised the WWE even brought her back considering her naughty videos.

    There is that. Every time she rope dives I half expect her to suffer a Lita bomb. As far as pure performance, Charlotte's probably at the top. For character, etc and straight up sexy, Bliss all the way.

    Ugh. Can't stand Shayna or Sonya.

    And now all that "high ground" bullshit you were on about, you just fucking lost it. I try to discuss the topic in good faith and you pull that shit?

    Well played, I admit, but after that whole shtick you pulled earlier, you're dismissed.

    I'm not all in on Alexa, even though her Mic work is top notch. I think Shayna is alright, but I couldn't care less about her really. Or Sonya.

    Charlotte, Becky, Asuka and Kairi Hojo is where it's at. And I like what Bianca Belair is doing as well. Major potential there imo.

    So did I. Don't blame me because I have a different opinion to you. I'm not a robot.

    No, just no longer amusing; you and your opinion no longer worth addressing. Our dialog has ended.

    So you don't have anything to actually provide to the discussion and want to continually derail?

    Good to know.

    So amusing that people get this upset over someone saying "wrestling is bad" and pointing out it's just an opinion.

    Meh. Not into the Asian wrestlers (or culture) at all. Especially that stupid sailor shit. Haven't seen Bianca much but I do like Ember.

    I don't think they really could. they would have also had to go after Xaviar Woods too. Either way I don't think it's there business. Only thing I think they should have gone after her for was receiving the money shot on the NXT women's title in that one blowjob video.
    The one force of nature they call by name.

    Makes sense. Neither MMA or WWE are real fighting.

    I just want to point out that everything that isn't opera, traditional stage theatre, or orchestral performance is essentially considered a "low" form of entertainment.

    So pretty much everything that most modern people enjoy.

    Actually, all the rumors are she has signed a full-time contract. Is so, that would mean she will work the same scheduled as any other full-timer so weekly TV appearances as well as house shows.

WWE are pushing her hard because of the PR her involvement will generate, despite her being a total beginner who will need carrying/walking through matches (matches that will undoubtedly suffer because of it). At the same time she will be stealing the spotlight from significantly more talented performers who have spent years honing their skills.

    We've been down this road before, it was called David Arquette and it was widely considered to be one of the worst things to ever happen to the industry.
    Apparently, she has been going to the WWE's performance center and training for months. That doesn't mean she won't still be green as hell at the start, but it at least shows that she is taking this seriously and isn't planning on just doing a few celebrity style matches. This is much more akin to when Brock first signed that it is to when Arquette showed up in WCW.

    She could still end up being totally terrible, but I am at least willing to wait until we see he in the ring before writing her off.
