  12. :yes:
    SKASGUARD THE FORMERLY DILAPIDATED BOAT WILL BE MAKING AN APPEARANCE, by the looks of it, The Final Deletion is most likely gonna be topped.
     
  13. Okay, seeing this thread got me curious. As I have mentioned many times over, I was a HUGE fan of TNA up until the Hogan years. I have tried watching it on and off ever since but I have a lot of hard feelings about their treatment of Jeff Jarrett. But you guys keep talking about how awesome this Final Deletion thing was so I decided to check it out.

    Now, I need some help here. Please explain to me why people like this so much? In my viewpoint, it was one of the dumbest things I have ever seen in 31 years of watching professional wrestling. It was so painfully awful that I would rate it close to Katie Vick in terms of utter stupidity. And if I ever hear Matt Hardy say "Brother Nero" one more time, I am going to hunt him down and kick him in the balls so many times that I will cause a final deletion to any of his future offspring.

    Now, part of me suspects that the reason that people enjoyed it was because how over the top and stupid it was. If that is the case, then that's fine. I understand. Hell one of my favorite movies is "ManBorg," so I get over the top stupidity. But I guess I don't really like it to this extreme in my wrestling. I am more of a wrestling purist, as we know, and I prefer more matches and less cheesy behind the scene stories.

    If there was something about this other than the sheer stupidity, please explain.

    I chose to put this question here rather than in the original FInal Deletion thread because obviously regardless of how utterly stupid I thought it was, it was well received to have a sequel. So what better place to explain it?
     
  14. Cheese is what makes wrestling fun.
     

  15. A non-beleiver.



    JK, but for me, the appeal is in the fact that this storyline is so weird, and out there, that it becomes entertaining because of its flaws. Plus Matt Hardy is so "in tune" with his "broken character" that he is making it a walking meme machine. Spouting countless "quotable lines" he has just became a guilty pleasure.

    Plus Senor Benjamin is a legend.

    I guess for some people, which is fine. Not my preference though. Makes sense though why people who like cheese would like it of course.
     

  17. Ah, okay. Yeah, for me, WWE does a bit too much story line. I am able to overlook the excessive story lines of Lucha Underground simply because the wrestling is really good. But for me the most important thing about wrestling is that it has to maintain suspension of disbelief. When it does this, I can get into a match and even though every part of me knows it's not a real fight, I can convince myself for a few minutes that it is... and that makes it enjoyable.

    This was way too over the top and I spent too much time just thinking it was weird... there was no suspension of disbelief possible for me... it just came across as something that should be on Mystery Science Theater 3000.

    But that's just my outlook. I don't disparage anyone for enjoying it because we are all entertained by different things. If others enjoy it, I am happy for them. I just won't ever get it.
     
  18. I enjoyed this very much. However, I think they relied on the meme spots, in fast succession. They had the fireworks, Skardgard, and the whole deal. I would have no problem with it, but they didn't space it out and it seemed like a quick solution to a lack of substance.

    I enjoyed, overall, though.
     
  19. Both parts of The Final Deletion have been the best things I've watched in wrestling in a long time.

  20. To kind of respond to this and your other post... The Final Deletion was aired when I wasn't watching TNA (background: TNA started airing on a channel I don't get, then when it switched channels I kept forgetting I could start watching it again.) and I never did remember to go back and watch it, but saw the rave reviews about it here. Without seeing it, I started getting back into watching TNA on a regular basis and became genuinely amused and entertained with the "Broken Matt Hardy" character, along with "Brother Nero." I didn't know about the background, but they just amused me right away.

    Generally speaking, I'm not a big fan of over-the-top stupidity or much stupidity at all, for that matter. I mean, there's a reason I'm not a big fan of Will Ferrell. That being said, while this whole "Broken Matt Hardy" and especially the Delete or Decay segment might seem to be over-the-top stupidity in the wrestling world, I still thoroughly enjoy him and enjoyed the segment this past week. To me his character just looks cool, and sure he's pretty out there, but it entertains me and holds my interest. I enjoy wrestling, and like you I enjoy more matches with a minor bit of story line included to basically explain why the match is happening or to keep things going. But, I think a big reason I enjoyed Delete or Decay and enjoy "Broken Matt Hardy" is because I don't view it within the rest of the wrestling program. I basically view them as a separate thing. Almost like a break from the wrestling program, if you will. "Hey, we've had X number of matches, let's take a break and see what 'Broken Matt Hardy' is up to." Even with the matches and all, I just don't take it seriously and view it as a separate part of the rest of the show. Maybe that doesn't make much sense, but it's how I take it and how I look at it.

    Now, if I tried to take it seriously, or even if I chalked it up as a regular wrestling match and regular story line, then I'd probably be like you and just look at it as sheer stupidity and get annoyed by the whole thing. But with me not taking it seriously and viewing it as an entirely separate thing from the rest of the TNA program, I'm able to just enjoy it as pure entertainment and amusement.
