  1. WWE Forums is giving away a copy of WWE 2K18 for any platform! More info: WWE 2K18 Giveaway (PS4, Xbox One, Steam)
  1. lol what a little prick this Dunn must be :dawg:


  2. Pretty much all of the writers say that hardly anyone likes Kevin Dunn except for Vince McMahon himself. They also continuously claim (as Greenfield does in this article) that Dunn will likely be one of the first people cut when Triple H and Stephanie take over the reins from Vince. He's awesome and flawless at his job in video production though, I'd simply keep him away from having any input on the creative/storyline aspects of wrestling.
  3. Cannot agree on him being "flawless" when it comes video production. Dude's been known to cut away from big spots so they are shot from in correct angles or not caught on screen at all.
  4. I should have clarified that I was speaking more in terms of video packages that are used as the intros to PPVs and the ones used to hype up matches and whatnot. Even then, "flawless" was a bit of hyperbole on my part, but he is undeniably talented in that area.
  5. i.e. Bray Wyatt's catching Sister Abigail to John Cena at Payback was not shown because of the replay of Cena throwing the steps at Wyatt.
  6. I'd take Russo over either Dunn or Cornette any day of the week.

    But I do agree with this guy's sentiment on "bringing in someone from a mid-market NBA team". The most successful head writers in history were Russo and Bischoff, largely because they brought fresh, new ideas to a wrestling world that desparately needed them at the time. It's past time for one promotion (looking at you, TNA) to come bring some new ideas to the table and present a product modern wrestling fans can be happy with.

    Heard a wise person say one time that "If ECW would have stuck around, their current product would look a lot like Ring of Honor. They were doing everything they could to cater to what the 18-35 demographic wanted at the time with their hardcore programming, and now that same business model would lead to more of a sports-based product." Tend to agree with that notion, and that's a big part of what made NXT Takeover so successful. So maybe for WWE the answer really is in-house, we just have to wait for KD and VKM to GTFO
  7. The WWE's production style has been insanely generic, robotic and boring for years now. I think it's the biggest thing wrong with the product. I don't know if it's because they've used the "style" for so long or if it's shit, but regardless things just have to be changed. Whenever I watched Impact I always thought it was a breath of fresh air because of how different the show was produced.

    And above all else, fuck that bucktooth beaver motherfucker.
    • Agree Agree x 1
  8. Well, WWE's presentation does seem stale. I liked the line about fast food producing. There's also one of the reasons why women don't matter much too, I guess. This completely explains why NXT's women's division is vastly superior.
  9. In all fairness Cornette does actually know what he's doing in some sense.

  10. Dunn was the one who ordered the fast zoom in/out whenever The Shield used to assault people IIRC, for that alone he deserves to be fired immediately. It got to the point where it was unwatchable. A guy on reddit actually slowed it down to a frame by frame basis, and from like 10 seconds of action you literally couldn't see anything, it was all just a blur.
  11. Vince McMahon likes everyone that nobody likes.
  12. My understanding is that Vince McMahon isn't a huge fan of change, thus why things never change.
    Logically speaking, if Dunn doesn't like change then why would Vince want to fire him?
  13. If some people are to be believed. Vince doesn't even like Dunn. He tolerates him. He likes Dunn's dad and promised to keep Kevin employed for life since Dunn sr saved some TV tapes from his burning car. Or so the story goes.
  14. If Vickie Guerrero is any indication, those people may be correct. Vince may be greedy and delusional but he keeps his promises.
