The Teacher's Lecture
The Rock and Cena team up for one time only!
Quick Notes: Yes folks, it's late in the game (I don't blame my schedule on this issue, I enjoy what I do for a living) and if any readers have not followed up on WWE television recently The Rock will team up with John Cena to take on The Miz and R-Truth at Survivor Series. This is going to be a fantastic match, well at least on paper because of so many reasons.
R-Truth has vastly improved his gimmick this year going from a guy that looked to be released if he did not choose to revamp his character. He even brought out some new offense that one has to admit never witnessed from R-Truth. So when it comes to one of the most improved wrestlers in the business today look no further than Truth. His partner, The Miz, needs no explanation in the fact that he had a great WWE World Championship run in the early half of the year which catapulted his #1 ranking in this year's PWI 500. Sure, he is flat at this moment but a great match with Cena and Rock can do wonders for this guy. The Miz is a main-event guy that needs to be under the spotlight.
However, it is Cena and Rock that will grab the headlines and that is perfectly fine. As the Rock said before, they are the faces of their generations. John Cena is the current main guy in the WWE, while The Rock was one of the top wrestlers a decade ago. Cena has been a bit lousy in the ring recently, but when it comes to a pay-per-view match he is money. Some people downright despise him, but do these people dislike him because of his wrestling or because of his success?
Here is something very interesting that I wanted to share. Wasn't The Rock in this same boat early in his career? He got his small cheers from the audience when he debuted, but later on, the crowd turned on The Rock and guess what? The Rock welcomed that, turned heel and played the role well. His charisma and unique talent alone made him a star both in the ring and in the movies.
We all recall that The Rock vs. John Cena will main event WrestleMania in Miami. Survivor Series should get a jolt in the PPV buyrates this year because of the immediate impact The Rock will provide. But will "Rocky" deliver? Is he going to take this match serious?
I think the readers and fans of wrestling the question to one of the questions. It was reported a week ago that The Rock flew The Miz and R-Truth down to I believe where he is filming at and they worked on some of the segments. That report alone makes this author believe that The Rock is taking this serious.
The Rock knows that most of his fans followed him since his debut in 1996. His "people" went to see his movies. Some were good, some were terrible, and some were just flat out weird. But his fans still watched his movies. Also, the Rock wants to do this for the WWE. The WWE is investing a lot into this main event and if The Rock wrestles sloppy, then in my opinion there will be some potential WreslteMania buyers considering to say "no" to next year's "Super Bowl of Professional Wrestling (or Sports Entertainment)".
However, if the Rock wrestles as well (if not better) than when he left then it will really pique the interest of all his fans into throwing a few bucks into the pockets of the WWE come April of 2012. The WWE rolled the dice, as did The Rock. The profits, if all goes well at Survivor Series or any PPV featuring The Rock will reach unheard of numbers. If the match falls flat, some of the casual fans may not pony up the additional money to catch WrestleMania on their High-Definition Televisions.
Here is my quick opinion on this lecture. The Rock is training...hard. I think this main event will be a match that casual and the diehard wrestling fan will talk about in positive tones. If this is a taste of what to expect in a few months, sign me up. The Miz will deliver. R-Truth should be able to deliver. Cena will deliver. The question whether The Rock will deliver, or "bring it" will be determined in less than two weeks.
Quick Notes from "The Notebook of Mr. V"
1) TNA Wrestling's website was hacked.
Quick Notes I could joke, but why do that? TNA hopefully learned their lesson and beefed up their security.
2) The Ultimate Warrior calls the "Occupy Wall Street" members "hypocrites".
Quick Note: The Ultimate Warrior is known to say insane things after he retired as a pro wrestler. However, in his mini-rant on TMZ he mentioned that these people are "a big part of the consumerism that goes on in this country". I can't disagree.
3) Keep an eye on Dean Ambrose.
Quick Note: As mentioned in my good friend Jason Namako's FCW Recap, he had a solid match with William Regal. When CM Punk made an appearance in FCW, guess who was booked to cut a heel promo on Punk? Ambrose. I listened to all of them and I must say that on the mic, Ambrose is ready. Not bad for a guy who wrestled in CZW, EVOLVE, and other various independent promotions.
4) TNA has a working agreement with Ohio Valley Wrestling.
Quick Note: I have been very critical of TNA Wrestling, up front and honest. With that typed, I think this is an amazing piece of news. OVW has trained many of the professional wrestlers that you see on WWE Programming today. Some of the names were John Cena, Randy Orton, Batista, Brock Lesnar, Shelton Benjamin, Cody Rhodes, Dolph Ziggler, and so many other talents that are wrestling around the world.
It is great for TNA because with their headquarters in Nashville, TN it is only a quick flight or a 3 hour drive to OVW's facility in Louisville, KY. Whether or not TNA will give their new developmental territory their 100% effort is unknown. On the website, I think this is one of TNA's best decisions in its history.
5) AJ Styles' injury.
Quick Note: The picture of the ankle looks serious. I know many do not care about AJ Styles, but I wish him a quick recovery. When 100% healthy, he will give Robert Roode (who is the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion) a solid main event. Heck, at 50% I would take Styles over the majority of that roster.
Since I have been out a while, there will be plenty of detentions to go around. I even got some from the readers as well. Here we go:
Mike Bryan – See "Brody"
The WWE "Haters" – You wanted change? The WWE gave them the "Summer of Punk". They gave them the PPV of the Year in Money in the Bank (well, I am still mixed on that opinion). Then the WWE looked at their bottom line and did not sell. It did not fail either. This is why the haters watch and the people employed by the company know what they are doing.
Oprah – Just thought I would put her in there.
WWE Studios – Another lousy movie in "The Reunion". It just does not look appealing.
Sin Cara – High hopes when signed, yet failed to deliver after a few months.
Titus O'Neil and Percy Watson – Enough with the "Fish" jokes to Maxine. They are just not funny.
Penn St. – This college is under much scrutiny. This is not on the players, fans, current students, or alumni. It is their college football coaching staff and the higher ups for never reporting this scandal that I am reading now. Jerry Sandusky is a sleazebag and scum in my opinion. Shame on that entire school for allowing this to happen...IN SCHOOL FACILITIES!
Why am I upset with those that never reported Sandusky's crimes? One can Google "Penn State Scandal" and find out there. It is disgusting and those people associated with the crime should be ashamed.

Scottropolis presents "The Brody" (goes to the WORST comment under WrestleView articles)
The "Brody" is now presented by Mr. Scottie Poindexter and http://www.scottropolis.com! Scottie has posted many of his writing on this website and there are many subjects he writes about. From Poetry to Music and even Professional Wrestling, Mr. Poindexter has unique writing that will please anyone. So go to his website if you like, and you can thank me later.
Again, there were many comments out there that were very insensitive and pathetic. I was about to give someone a Brody based on their uneducated comment under a Monday Night Raw Rating from October 31, 2011.
This comment was posted under "More on the 10/31 Monday Raw Rating". This week the Brody "winner" was very easy to pick out. The award for Stupidest Comment goes to Mike Byron and his lack of awareness in holidays.
Here is the Brody-Worthy Comment:
"Hallowe'en is not a holiday." – Mike Byron
Mr. V's Thought: Ok, after laughing for a few minutes I gathered my thoughts. I went on Wikipedia and found the definition of Halloween. Enjoy.
Halloween (a shortening of All Hallows' Evening), also known as Hallowe'en or All Hallows' Eve, is a yearly HOLIDAY observed around the world on October 31, the night before All Saints' Day. (Credit: Wikipedia)
No Tony Atlas this week, I think this if any needs a "Cornette Face" because Adam Martin's first reaction was probably this kid of face.(Courtesy of Botchamania)
I also take suggestions for "The Brody". Send your picks to email@example.com. Subject: The Brody. Thanks.
"THE BEST" Wrestling Program (formerly Weekly TV Wars)
This grading period is from October 31 – November 6, 2011
IT'S BACK!!! Each week I watch every wrestling program from WWE, TNA, and ROH for the integrity of my column and I grade each segment and match. I will post what I thought was the match of that card and what the best segment was from each program. I will then pick the top two programs and issue points (2 for the best, 1 for the second-best). It is called accountability of what is being produced. We, as wrestling fans, love a great show. It is time to see where the best shows lie.
October 31 – Monday Night Raw (in Atlanta, GA)
Segment of the Show: Well, most readers know that I am a sucker for "The Muppets". I enjoyed the Muppets segments on Raw, well most of them. The one that I thought was the best was the interaction with Beaker and Sheamus. Christian was the bully, spilling Dr. Bunsen Honeydew's Energy Drink for Santino Marella. Sheamus got rid of Christian and had a friendly chat with Beaker.
Match of the Program: John Cena vs. The Miz (Grade: C+B-)
November 2 – WWE NXT (in Greenville, SC)
Segment of the Show: Honestly, I would have went with the opening segment with Derrick Bateman and Maxine, but that was ruined by Titus O'Neil and Percy Watson bringing a fish to the ring.
Match of the Program: Titus O'Neil, Percy Watson, and AJ vs. Derrick Bateman, JTG, and Maxine (Grade: C+)
November 3 – WWE Superstars (in Atlanta, GA (for Raw portion) and Greenville, SC (for SD Portion))
Segment of the Show: There were no segments, outside of the Raw Rebound with the Muppets.
Match of the Program: Drew McIntyre vs. John Morrison (Grade: B)
November 3 – Impact Wrestling (in Macon, GA)
Segment of the Show: A lot of segments were either average or subpar. However, the opening segment with James Storm and Bobby Roode set up a great story towards the main event. There was good emotion and the mic skills of both Roode and Storm really shined in this portion of the show.
Match of the Program: Bobby Roode (or is it Robert now?) vs. James Storm (Grade: B-)
November 4 – WWE Friday Night Smackdown (in Greenville, SC)
Segment of the Show: Surprisingly, not too many backstage or in-ring non segments. So by default I will have to go with the backstage interview with Mark Henry and Matt Striker. The interview set up what could be a potential push for Daniel Bryan, a man who still has a case to cash in. It has the signs of a good feud.
Match of the Program: Randy Orton vs. Cody Rhodes (Grade: A)
November 6 – Ring of Honor Wrestling (in Louisville, KY)
Segment of the Show: Though at times a bit corny (I guess that is the word), the legal team segment with Kevin Steen was well done. Jim Cornette last week said "Steen can sue him", so Steen, the heel character, does exactly that. It was very well done.
Match of the Program: Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas vs. Caprice Coleman and Cedric Alexander (Grade: C-)
After watching all the episodes that the WWE, TNA, and ROH produced that is on my television I must say the following:
- The WWE really pushed with segments on Raw (three that were pretty solid) and the wrestling was not too bad (3 were graded at a "C+").
- The NXT show did their stories in the ring. However, the segment they had to open to the show up good until O'Neil and Watson killed it (not in a good way) with their lack of humor. The wrestling on this show was solid, as none scored lower than a "C-" in the grade book.
- If one really enjoys watching just wrestling and does not care about anything else, WWE Superstars was my pick this week. It opened up strong, and the Raw portion of Superstars was some of the best wrestling I watched all week. Since there was nothing backstage, it does affect their ranking.
- Impact Wrestling was pretty good this past week, as I only lost interest in the whole "Bischoff family" storyline. However, the Storm/Roode opening act and their match was well done and the Robbie E/Eric Young rivalry was a bit entertaining. Wrestling wise, this was good for their program. To the surprise of some, I would recommend most of this show.
- Smackdown's opener was easily the best, with a Street Fight between Cody Rhodes and Randy Orton. The segment went about 25% of the entire show, and I was hooked. After a few lackluster moments, it had a pleasant surprise with Sheamus vs. Wade Barrett match.
- Ring of Honor is a show that focuses a lot on wrestling. However, this week it was a ton of buildup. That was alright with me, as I think the viewers finally found out what ticks for Michael Elgin. However, I did not enjoy either of the show's matches. To me, they felt like squashes. It is not what ROH is known for, and I am certain next week will be better.
Which show was the "Show of the Week"?
6) Ring of Honor on Sinclair 5) WWE NXT 4) WWE Superstars 3) WWE Monday Night Raw 2) WWE Friday Night Smackdown (1 point) 1) Impact Wrestling (2 points)
Thoughts: ROH was flat in my opinion, so I had them last. NXT fell flat with their segments, but the wrestling was not as bad as what I saw on the ROH show. Superstars delivered in wrestling, and that was pretty much it. Raw was only saved by The Muppets, almost all of the matches missed chemistry.
I picked Impact Wrestling over WWE Friday Night Smackdown this week because outside of one of the best "Free" televised matches of the year, the majority of the show lacked something. The show did not truly elevate anyone and a couple of the matches were pretty bad.
Impact this week is what many will say "The Upset Pick". Outside of a couple minor segments that I could have done without, the wrestling was pretty good. It set up stories in place for their next PPV and we got a couple good stories coming up with the TNA X Division Championship and the World Heavyweight Championship. I will give this show the nod this week, but I fear disappointment on November 10th.
Overall Standings (will be reset in 11 weeks)
1) WWE Friday Night Smackdown (3 points) 2) Impact Wrestling (2 points) 3) WWE NXT (1 point) 4) WWE Monday Night Raw (0 points) 5) Ring of Honor Wrestling (0 points) 6) WWE Superstars (0 points)

Who's in line for the Predictions Prize?
See the latest Predictions article for details on how to compete.
First Place will win a wrestling DVD. Second Place will win a T-Shirt. Third Place will win a Coffee Mug. Last Place will win TNA's Victory Road 2009 (or now even 2011 whichever costs less), as it was as bad a PPV as what potentially someone's picks will be.
I will just type out the Top five or six readers at this time. The first set of parentheses is the W/L record for WWE's Hell in a Cell. The second parentheses are the Tie-Breaker points.
1) Jordan Benterman..................................................87-49 (4-3) (41) – #1 2) Brian Czygan............................................................85-51 (7-0) (43) - #2 3) Wade Bradford........................................................84-52 (4-3) (39) - #3 4) Sam Newstone.......................................................82-54 (5-2) (43) 5) Michael Fox............................................................82-54 (4-3) (36) 6) Nick Latham.............................................................79-49 (5-2) (40)
The person with the most picks incorrect is currently 51-70 with 26 tiebreaker points. While there are some with a worse "winning percentage" from day one I said that the most incorrect picks will be the winner of a TNA Victory Road 2009 or 2011 DVD.
The next pay-per-view will be TNA Turning Point. The show will be live this Sunday so get your predictions ready.
Mr. V's Gold Star Segment
This week, let's get some Gold Stars ready.
The Muppets – Particularly Beaker for his "run-in" on the Marella/Swagger match and the puppet's interaction with Sheamus. They did a lot for the October 31st edition of Raw.
The Booking of Wade Barrett – I think this is the way they should rebuild Barrett. Barrett won some easy matches and defeated talent that has recognition. The booking has been great.
Zack Ryder – I know people do get irritated by Ryder, but the guy seriously went from unknown to Internet Sensation to a possible second-tier champion in the WWE. Ryder is truly living his dream.
Colt Cabana – His latest "Art of Wrestling" podcast was with Kenny Omega, and it was very good. I recommend also the episode with Johnny Saint and Gregory Iron as well.
The Rock – He appears that he will "Bring It" come Survivor Series. If he does, prepare to be electrified.
CM Punk – I know some of his mic work is flat, but he is still very entertaining. It is interesting to hear what he will say next.
William Regal – If there is just one thing that will interest someone about NXT, it is the commentary of one William Regal.
WWE Superstars – The November 3 episode was a very good card. It is a nice way to keep the mid-card talents noticed.
Gail Kim and Madison Rayne – They are the NEW TNA Knockout's Tag Team Champions. Wow, they are really pushing Kim since she left the WWE, huh?
Austin Aries – The X Division is known to be full of spots and flips. That is their element and I can accept that. But I can't help but be impressed with what "A-Double" does for that division.
Bobby Roode – He is the NEW TNA World Heavyweight Champion. Thought the match was pretty good with James Storm, but next time clean up the beer bottle mess before you make the pin.
Randy Orton and Cody Rhodes – From start to finish, this was an amazing match for those who watched it and those who saw it in Greensville, SC.
Sheamus – Also, whoever decided to turn him babyface deserves one as well.
Daniel Bryan – He is running a beard contest and I would love to be a part of it, but now that I am a teacher I like to be clean-shaven. It makes me look professional.
Kevin Steen – He's BaaaaaaAAAAAAAck!
El Generico – I got an "Ole" from The Generic Luchador on Twitter (which I am @TheMisterV if you want to follow).
Chikara – They will have their first iPPV this weekend. I wish them the best and hope they have continued success.
Chad Robbins – This reader of mine bowled another 300 game in bowling. How many of my readers bowled over twenty 300 games in bowling? I can't even get one on Wii Bowling! Great job, Chad.
Dolph Ziggler – I have very soon he loses the United States Championship, because he is main event ready.
Antonio Cesaro – He earns one for staying Very European in FCW.
And that is all for now. If you want me to give out a Gold Star let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In two months, I will present the 2011 Golden Yardstick/Rotten Apple Awards celebrating the best and worst of professional wrestling. I have watched a bit of wrestling, and I want you to think of who should be worthy of one of these awards. Any suggestions can be sent to email@example.com. If you need a list of what the categories are, let me know.
Well, that does it for me this week. I thank you all for reading this column and I hope you enjoyed this column as much as I typed it out. If you like it, tell a friend! My classroom has many desks inside. If you want to get a hold of me during the week, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at email@example.com, or by leaving me a message on Facebook.
Now, students you are allowed to leave the classroom. Please push in your chairs, line up straight, and exit to the closest door around you. Until next time, you are all......DISMISSED!
