    Bad show they did that ring breaking back when big daddy v was alife

    Who cares? Artfiicialyy high after ‘Mania/. Of course there is less, They still beat women’s national championship (a once a year cable sports event) from the previous week.Now that it “dropped” it can be “higher” next week,

  • Actually, thinking back, I don’t think that’s the issue. The last time they did it before this time was Mark Henry vs Big Show in 2011, 6 years ago, and the first time was Bock Lesnar vs Big Show in 2003, which was 14 years ago. So PLENTY of time has passed where they can do the ring collapse spot again and not have it feel repetitive. No, I think the issue is this: All three times had Big Show being the one superplexed. As a result, the crowd could see it coming far easier than if it was, say, any other big guy up on the top rope about to be superplexed. And I don’t wanna make it sound like I’m coming down on Big Show here, because it’s not his fault. It just happens that, all three times, he was the one booked to be in the spot.

    It was still a good show overall in my opinion and i enjoyed it though tbh playing so much hearthstone and overwatch has been eating into my wwe time.

    Well, WWE has redone the Montreal Screwjob 3 times since 1997: Rock vs Mankind- Survivor Series ’98, Austin vs Benoit-Raw May 28 2001, & CM Punk vs Undertaker-Breaking Point 2009. They may not re-enact it that often (4 times in about 20 years) but it sure as hell feels repetitive everytime they do. I guess it doesn’t help that WCW & TNA also each did their re-enactments of it.

  • You forgot Charlotte vs Natalya and Shane McMahon vs Shawn Michaels.

  • TheCyberZon

    What were the dates & events for those?

  • Shane vs Shawn was on the March 16, 2006 edition of Saturday Night’s Main Event, and Charlotte vs Natalya was Payback last year, May 1, 2016.

  • TheCyberZon

    I was surprised to see that Bret himself was a party to that Payback match. I guess time really does heal all wounds, especially if a lucrative Legends contract is involved.
    Anyway, whether it’s a ring breakage 3 times in 14 years or a screwjob 6 times in 20 years, it all speaks to WWE “creative’s” lack of creativity.
