Paul Heyman Says World Title Defended Too Often
In a recent interview with the Miami Herald Paul Heyman defended the “part timer” concept and suggested the World title has lost prestige by being defended too often. He did however suggest Lesnar might not be part time if he holds the belt:
I don’t know if any of those critics of privy to an agreement Brock Lesnar may or may not have with WWE. So I don’t understand how anybody can credibly say this is what Brock Lesnar’s schedule is going to be when he becomes the WWE champion. Second, I think the WWE championship is the defended too often and lost some of the prestige because of the beast of monthly pay-per-views. The champion having to defend on every single pay-per-view, let alone at every single arena, has taken away from the special event that is when a champion defends the title.
Here is the best example I can give you. Why don’t we just do 12 WrestleMania events a year? I mean it’s the brand name in pay-per-view. You know people understand that WrestleMania means it’s something special and unique and doesn’t happen all the time. It’s can’t miss. Well, you can’t do 12 WrestleMania events a year because then you water-down WrestleMania, and it won’t mean as much on the rare occasion you present the brand name WrestleMania.
It’s the same with Brock Lesnar. If you present Brock Lesnar 52 weeks a year and you have Brock Lesnar defend the title 12 times a year, you’re losing money. You’re not making money because you are watering down the unique opportunity that the audience can have to see an once-in-a-lifetime athlete on the rare occasion that he dons the tights and laces up the boots and goes into the ring to beat people within an inch of their lives.
Plus, here is one more thing to consider. If Brock Lesnar were to work a full-time schedule he would wipe out the roster at once. There would be nobody left for him to fight. So how can people be clamoring for Brock Lesnar to be work a full-time schedule? Then you’ll have three hours of Brock and Paul Heyman sitting alone in a ring talking to each other because there would be nobody left for Brock Lesnar to conquer.
Mick Foley Warns Fan Not To Get Tattoo
Mick Foley recently got wind on social media that a fan was planning to get a tattoo of his face bleeding – he advised against it in a blog:
A quick message for the guy who wants to get this image permanently tattooed on his body: don’t do it, brother! Think of the bigger picture. Think long-term. Unless you’re happily married right now, and your wife is completely cool with you getting a photo of me bleeding – stop and think about your future! What if you meet the girl of your dreams, and when it comes time to get nice with her for the first time, you have to explain this image to her? Maybe she will be completely into it – and that case, you have got yourself a keeper. But more likely, putting this image permanently on your body will eventually lead you to feel like Jacob Marley in “A Christmas Carol” – doomed to carry the chains you forged in life for eternity. Doomed!
New WWE Stable Already Canned?
It looks like the so called Nation of Domination Version 2 stable with Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods has already been scrapped. It has not been mentioned at all in August and the wrestlers have been working singles as if nothing happened.
Perhaps during a time when the media are questioning if WWE are racist, somebody finally understood that it was in poor taste.
