This week, get ready for the script to be torn up, because things are getting REAL. So real that we’ve had to recruit regular correspondent and resident of The Blast Zone Nightlife (@AnimeKing420) to weigh in on things.
NOTE: We strongly advise that you have the following song playing while you read the questions and cast your votes, it’ll set the right tone.
Who do you side with in the Reality Era WWE war: Triple H vs. Kevin Dunn?
Reports are flying that WWE’s long-time head producer Kevin Dunn has been scuppering Triple H’s attempts to get his NXT babies over, but is he right to do so? Who do you side with?
I think both men have their issues. Most of my problems with Triple H stem from his ego but I never doubt that he doesn’t love pro wrestling. I think he at least has a vision for what he thinks the product should be. I’m not saying things will be a lot better once he is fully in charge but a change is going to be nice. I’ll fully admit I am ready for a Triple H-ran WWE product just for something that has potential to feel different. He has and continues to bring in a decent amount of talented workers to NXT but the a big problem is usually how those talents are written on TV when brought to the main roster. I’m not saying I have ever had any hope for Adam Rose and Bo Dallas. Their characters are one-dimensional goofs. In a vacuum, I enjoy NXT but the gimmicks have to be more inviting and less in-joke ridden when they come to the main roster. I don’t know how much of that is Triple H’s fault.
I see Kevin Dunn as someone who is worried about his job once Triple H does take the helm. He seems like one of Vince’s yes-men and a member of the old guard. I know Triple H has played his fair share of politics and it’s always disgusting to hear about or see, but I am actually pretty curious to see his vision with no restraints from Vince McMahon and the rabid shit-heads he surrounds himself with. Is Triple H one of those politicking shit-heads? In a way, yes… but I have the feeling Triple H cares more about the future of pro wrestling than Vince McMahon’s buddies.
Not sure how to pick here as I dislike what I hear about Kevin Dunn and some of the NXT call-ups, specifically Adam Rose’s bit. That being said, I have to pick Kevin Dunn here. Even if his time is up once Triple H gets full power, he likely sees it coming and is just making things difficult to stick it to Hunter before he gets the
I don’t have a horse in this race but I think I have to pick Kevin Dunn based off how impressive his burying skills are. Less than a month into Adam Rose’s big debut and he’s not even on TV! That’s just an amazing feat done to the king of burials. Kevin Dunn gets the win here.
I can understand not being convinced by a lot of the NXT grads that have made it to TV so far, but I’d still rather watch a hundred Adam Rose segments than anything to do with Kane ever again. Give me new things to watch! Even if some of it is terrible or takes a little while to catch on, it’s worth it for the stuff that works – for example, I am strongly considering buying a Bo Dallas shirt in the future and that is NOT something I ever expected to have to deal with.
God, this one’s tough. On one hand, you have a guy who takes every possible opportunity to put himself over as one of the greatest stars of all time, very frequently at the expense of up-and-comers, and who had that absolutely dreadful 2002-present run, but on the other hand, you have a buck-toothed moron who ruined the only chance WWE ever had to put on a legit explosion match. After much consideration, I have made my decision. As an unabashed FMW fan and blood mark, put me on Team Levesque.
