I think the thing that would work best for her is to have her with the sweet, innocent, naive/childish "i like dinosaurs and wanna hug you" persona, but then when she gets hurt she snaps and whoops peoples asses

Then one day when they want her to turn heel they could have her snap for good, like a "you pushed me over the edge" deal

I think that's the important part. When you have the "I like turtles" character, inevitably they'll turn heel and after that they're left with no character trajectory, because you can't just have her go back (unless someone whacks her w/ a baseball bat). If you display violent/psychotic tendencies early then it will leave her with a place to go once she does turn.


But all this is hard to portray without going over-the-top, which is why I hope she gets the necessary practice done in NXT.


One of my pet-peeves w/ wrestling today is guys pretty much get one shot. If they fvck up, or lose momentum then that's it, you're either done or a jobber now. Most of them are too green to begin with.

Speaking of the NXT divas again, the more I watch the more I love this Emma girl and her entrance/dance. It's intentionally stupid as hell but I think the live crowds would eat that shit up. It's crazy how over she is with the NXT fans

Emma, Paige, Summer Rae, Bayley are all very good. Emma vs Summer Rae was really good too.

Charlotte (Flair's daughter) has the potential to be one of the best too. That girl is crazy athletic/strong (and she's like 6'1 or something)

Damn nice pics

Amazing the quality of pics you can get from even that far away nowadays. I remember I went to a show in 2000 and had pretty decent seats but just a disposable camera with a flash. Every single pic was almost pitch black with a tiny light that was the ring

Wrestling game wise I really like the Fire Pro series. X Premium for SNES is pretty awesome.

It's crazy how over he is with the WWE crowds considering all the start/stop push he's had and all the stupid sh!t (yodelling) he's had to do.
