MAILBAG: God’s Plan For Bearer Death, Colter Managing Brodus, Booing Cena and More

SEScoops Mailbag for March 15th

Got a Question? Submit it with your name to: [email protected]

Q: At what point did the general public start to boo John Cena, after he was done with his rapper gimmick? Was it a particular promo that he cut? Did he face a certain opponent? And when did the announcers have to start to acknowledge, on air, that Cena was getting booed? – Jay H.

A: Can’t recall a specific moment, but it wasn’t long after he was drafted to Raw in 2005 and became the face of the company. First time I remember a crowd really crapping on him at a major show would have been Chicago at WrestleMania 22.

Q: I’m halfway through watching TNA’s Lockdown PPV and I couldn’t help but push pause and email my disgust to you. The match quality has been good to great, however Taz must be stopped. My wife is a casual fan, and all she’s had to say is “who is the arrogant wanker on commentary bullying the other guys?” I mean seriously, he adds nothing to this product, I beg Dixie to [just] allow Todd and Tenay to do their jobs. Am I the only one who thinks this would benefit the quality of TNA’s presentation? – Dando from Australia

A: I actually thought Taz was the most entertaining he’s been in a long time on last night’s Impact. He can overbearing at times, but it’s no different than JBL on commentary. When each man talks over the other announcers, they can really be obnoxious. In the right doses, I think they add a lot to a broadcast, particularly JBL who is just great in the role. Todd and Tenay on their own would be pretty bland.

Q: On last week’s Sound Off [podcast], you pondered the idea of Zeb Colter leaving Swagger if he [were to at some point] be embarrassed for his DUI. My question is who would you like to see Colter paired off with? This might be a stretch, but I think he should be paired off with Brodus Clay to “bring the monster out of him.” I think WWE is missing that monster figure and [this] could work. – Shane from Fort Lauderdale, FL

A: Missing that monster figure? Seems to me like they have more than enough monsters right now with Brock Lesnar and Mark Henry, and perhaps Ryback. But I wouldn’t mind seeing Colter take over as manager for Brodus and Tensai once the dancing gimmick has run its course and lead them as a more serious, big man team. Tensai was quite good in that role with Karl Anderson over in New Japan.

Q: After seeing the 3-on-1 assault on Big Show by The Shield on Raw, is he temporarily going babyface or is he still going to be a monster heel? – Luis from Los Angeles

A: He’s still a heel. I can’t wrap my brain around how many turns he’s done over the years. It’s between him and Kane, I’ve lost track of who the current leader is.

Q: Do you think, like I do, that the unfortunate demise of William Moody added SO MUCH to the Undertaker vs. CM Punk match? The much needed reason why they’re having a match, other than just for The Streak at WrestleMania. Like god had this planned out all along or something. Any thoughts? – Valtteri from Finland

A: God is not a wrestling booker. He couldn’t even be bothered to show up for his tag match with Shawn Michaels.

  • Captain Obvious

    That last question was stupid.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jeremycounty Jeremy-County Roberts

      you must be new here.

      • Captain Obvious

        Naw, I’m just..stating the obvious

      • http://twitter.com/Psychonigma Psychonigma

        You see someone named Captain Obvious stating the obvious and replied like that, that’s fucking hilarious.

    • God

      sujin???

      • Captain Obvious

        Holy shit, you exist?

  • Aiii

    God has been no-showing events (in and outside of wrestling) for millennia now. What did they expect when they booked that match?

  • http://twitter.com/ToricoUK Jamie Hawker

    I think Big Show has gone back face.

    • DigitalWWE

      He’s not a face. He is still a heel.

      • Deante320

        Or a temporary tweener

  • http://www.facebook.com/jeremycounty Jeremy-County Roberts

    I have a question. Can you guys bring the old style theme for this site back? I’m sure I can’t be the only one that misses it. :|

    • sabin

      The world doesn’t stop for you. The current version works so much better, especially on mobile devices.

      • http://twitter.com/Psychonigma Psychonigma

        Exactly.

      • http://www.facebook.com/jeremycounty Jeremy-County Roberts

        did I say it stops for me?

        • mr meow

          i think you did

        • http://twitter.com/Psychonigma Psychonigma

          “I don’t like something, can you guys change it back for my sake? No, I don’t care if there’s good reasoning for the update.”

          • cm2012

            I agree…. the new layout is much needed. the site can actually run… not like shit…

    • http://twitter.com/PennyUndead Roger Penland

      i don’t like the new site either. it sucks bags of dicks.

  • http://twitter.com/markroda Marky Mark™

    the answer to that last question… LMFAO !!

  • Simba

    The first major crowd turning on Cena that i remember was when Triple H returned as a heel to face Cena and the arena cheered HHH over Cena. Though I was 11 when Cena came to Raw so i wasn’t exactly following wrestling intently.

    • arbazisawesome

      I think John Cena really got booed when he had a match with RVD at an ECW PPV
      when Van Damn had won the MITB and cashed it for Cena’s WWE title

  • jccox01

    lol I still remember that HBK and god vs the mcmahons

  • Damn

    John Cena is gay

    • Dicknology

      I agree he need to stop grinning all the time. You mean gay as in happy right? I mean Cena certainly isn’t homosexual, didn’t he have an affair with a porn star?

      • Carl Penn

        Cena should be paired off with Zeb Colter as his manager.

        • Dicknology

          Why? I like him with Swagger and Cena does not need a manager.

        • Hudson

          That would be an interesting twist to John Cena. But instead of just being “anti-Immigrant” make Cena into a full blown racist. Have him put those controversial racist symbology on his jorts and on the titantron. (You know the ones I’m talking about ) And then have him recruit other racists like him. A list of possible wrestlers that look like they could play a good racist gimmick. Heath Slater! Curt Hawkins, Sheamus, and possibly a female member…like Kaitlyn. She looks like she could play the part well, especially in that commando type attire she always wears. And have it all done at WM against the Rock because of the Rock’s racial background. That would blow Hogan’s heel turn at Bash at the beach out of the water big time and make it look like kindergarden. Nobody would even remember Hogan after this. It will NEVER happen though obviously, which would be a good thing anyway. WWE doesn’t need bad publicity!

          • oioi4life

            Look, as it is…..John Cena has f**ked up WWE more than enough already!
            He doesn’t deserve to be defended. Orton doesn’t either. Neither does Sheamus, Triple H, Brock Lesnar, Vince McMahon or anyone in WWE…but you know as well as I do that is what is going to happen. Like it or not.

            True, John Cena would definitely be able to pull it off….a racist gimmick. However, the disadvantage of him going along with that is that then he will become a more powerful bad guy than he already is. Him recruiting other racists like him would suck too. Because that’ll further screw things up. It sucks horribly lousy that he is always going to get away with the bad, negative, antagonistic, unfair, wrongful comments, attitudes, behaviors and such that he has dished out to other WWE Superstars, Divas, as well as fans, haters and non fans.
            Heath Slater, Kaitlyn, Curt Hawkins, or Sheamus having to be racists sucks! Jack Swagger having to go along with doing that sort of gimmick sucks!
            I’m extremely tired of Orton being married to Samantha Speno and having a daughter Alanna. That sucks worse than John Cena going along with a racist vimmick. Sheamus having to go along with a racist gimmick sucks lousily too! It makes no sense is stupid, and counter-productive. Nothing good would come out of more people in WWE being or becoming racists!
            It would harm everyone and as it is…..WWE already has enough problems as it is! I’m extremely tired of this bullish*t!

        • Al

          Would only bring about more problems and unfairness. WWE has enough wrong with it. That’s for damn certain!

      • Captain Obvious

        Having an affair with a porn star does not mean anything mate, half of them look like men anyway, only a man would wants boobs those big.

        • Dicknology

          Captain Obvious replying to Dicknology? That’s pretty intresting.

          • Captain Obvious

            Don’t take this as an insult, it isn’t. But is dick what you like? Or is it just your behavior? Curios

          • Dicknology

            No, no, no. I went to college and got a degree in Dicknology, that’s about it.

  • caseoffireusestairs

    Tazz has DEFINITIVELY gotten annoying. Especially with his “Bodybag” comments.

  • Stranger

    The last answer is great.

  • http://twitter.com/PennyUndead Roger Penland

    The reason The Shield attacked Big Show, was that he was guest starring on “Psych” that Wednesday evening, and well, who would watch it if Big Show was shown to be evil on the last WWE broadcast? isn’t that one so obvious??

    Anything that has anything to do with religion, I find illiterate

    • cm2012

      illiterate is a state of not being able to read or understand language. Your choice of word makes little to no sense… try whimsical, ridiculous, or something of the sort…

      • http://www.facebook.com/AFCACBS97 Daniël de Bakker

        Sorry I had autocorrect on

      • http://www.facebook.com/AFCACBS97 Daniël de Bakker

        Thank you…..I ordain you my official servant who can correct me

    • Mafia Is Forever

      Spirituality is real. Religion is like school subjects, there’s different ones but Spirituality is something the just gives you an instant connection to the world that is beyond our understanding. So, religion can be formed by some opinions while spirituality can be encountered universally.

      • http://www.facebook.com/AFCACBS97 Daniël de Bakker

        It seems to me that the idea of a personal God is an anthropological concept which I cannot take seriously. I also cannot imagine some will or goal outside the human sphere. … Science has been charged with undermining morality, but the charge is unjust. A man’s ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.

  • http://www.facebook.com/daniel.nowlin.3 Daniel Nowlin

    The 1st time that people heavily booed a face John Cena was at Taboo Tuesday 2005.

    • Mafia Is Forever

      and 8 years later…he’s still face…ugh

  • Mafia Is Forever

    Here’s a real answer to the last question.

    Everything that happens in the world is tied in spiritually, somehow. Every event is known by god before it ever happens. Paul Bearer died on March 5, 2013. The Whole World talked about it the next day on 3-6-13, how ironic? Three Six (666) 13 (Bad Number, right?). Just think about it. For years the Undertaker and Kane were billed as being from Hell and/or Down with the Devil, plus being Evil. So there you go…

    • Captain Obvious

      You’re reaching to find coincidences, Paul Bearer died, the question was pretty stupid. Let’s pay our respect to him and move on.

      • Mafia Is Forever

        I’m not reaching for anything. That’s how it happened. I have enough personal spiritual experience to believe what I said is a possibility. I didn’t say it was set-in-stone or fact. But, he did die a day before 3 6, his whole gimmick was about Hell and Death and shit like that. That’s a coincidence in itself.

        I could of said that he was killed as a Luciferian Sacrifice for the WWE (as a company), or For The Undertaker or For Kane. Then you’d say I was crazy, delusional or a conspiracy theorist but I don’t know, WrestleMania is comin’ back around and Undertaker is gonna be gettin’ that big money and they say that nothing in Hollywood is FREE. (Entertainment Industry = Hollywood)

        • Captain Obvious

          I have no right to call you crazy, if you say you have spiritual experiences, I’ll believe you, personally I’ve never had any, but come on, 3-6-13? 666? Really? Really?

          • Mafia Is Forever

            That’s why I’m on this site. I like wrestling but I’m wayyy deep into spiritual living. It’s just kinda like an outlet for me to reach people and let them know god is real because that’s what’s important, it’s necessary for the progression of humanity. I just try to open people’s eyes to some possibilities, so try not to get stuck on one thing that I say because there’s always more proof of god. As far as this particular situation, it was just a thought because I’m an advanced observer.

          • Dicknology

            Trying to open people’s eyes on a wrestling dirtsheet website, LOL. You learn something new everyday.

          • Mafia Is Forever

            If you read, you’ll realize that I cover all bases when I speak, by the words that I choose to use. I said “It’s just kinda like an outlet for me to reach people and let them know
            god is real because that’s what’s important, it’s necessary for the
            progression of humanity.”

          • Dicknology

            Whatever helps you sleep at night buddy.

          • Dicknology

            Hey at least I’m not the only guy who thinks Mafia is Forever is insane.

          • Mafia Is Forever

            You’re back talkin’ shit huh?

          • Dicknology

            Actually my comment was supposed to be a joke. Just teasing you since the last time we talked, lol.

          • Mafia Is Forever

            Okay, I’ll take that. I’m not a mean guy, I’m forgiving and I make mistakes

    • cm2012

      It’d be mildly ironic IF he died on the 6th…. other than that… not really

      • Mafia Is Forever

        coincidences happen daily when you’re spiritual, they probably happen in your life too but you just don’t know. That’s what happened to me, I kept seeing all of these coincidences that made me wonder if they were signs from God, kept chasing them and haven’t been average since.

  • DigitalWWE

    Honestly I feel like Paul Bearer’s death added another dimension to Taker vs Punk. A match I had no interest in seeing at all until Raw monday night. I’m not saying God planned it all. Happenstance.

    • Mafia Is Forever

      It basically gives us a reason to be satisfied with another Taker win at ‘Mania

  • http://twitter.com/Kennokevin Kevin Lazar

    Lol @ the idiot thinking Taz’s commentary sucks. He’s the best commentator in the business right now.

  • moody1

    A human being died. A man. With a family. Friends. Now, some idiot wants to think it was God’s plan for a wrestling angle? Some people really have a difficult time differentiating entertainment from the real world.

    • http://www.facebook.com/derek.fox.545 Derek Fox

      or religion from reality for that matter.

      • http://www.facebook.com/jacob.rael.9 Jacob Rael

        Religion is reality

        • Mafia Is Forever

          So true. There’s like a bunch of ignorant people telling smart people they’re dumb, it’s crazy.

          • http://www.facebook.com/AFCACBS97 Daniël de Bakker

            Religion is an illusion and it derives its strength from the fact that it falls in with our instinctual desires.One of the great tragedies of mankind is that morality has been hijacked by religion.

            If we go back to the beginning, we shall find that ignorance and fear created the gods; that fancy, enthusiasm, or deceit adorned them; that weakness worships them; that credulity preserves them and that custom, respect and tyranny support them in order to make the blindness of men serve their own interests. If the ignorance of nature gave birth to gods, the knowledge of nature is calculated to destroy them.

        • http://www.facebook.com/AFCACBS97 Daniël de Bakker

          . Religion easily has the best bullshit story of all time. Think about it. Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man…living in the sky. Who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer, and burn, and scream, until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you. He loves you and he needs money.

      • moody1

        I won’t take that bait. I don’t care what you believe or don’t believe. Your life.

    • Ertuiso

      No such thing.

  • Ali Sheikh

    If I remember right
    The ECW One night stand match of John Cena vs. RVD was the starting of Cena’s booing
    I remember he was embarrassed really bad

    • k.n.

      Cena caused problems for fans and haters that day. He is the reason WWE sucks and has gone downhill. Ever since he has been in WWE. People who used to like him don’t really like him anymore because of all the bad things he’s said and done over the years.

  • cbo

    I love the answer to the last question, but I’ll agree the last question was stupid and disrespectful

  • Mafia Is Forever

    Obviously, a lot of you guys are ignorant about spirituality and instead of learning from people who know, you just call them crazy, dumb and/or insane and then everybody agrees with you when they don’t know shit. Sad Way to go. Go ahead a give me a thumbs down, so my point can be proven, and since I said you’ll give me a thumbs down, so of you might just not click thumbs down but you’ll think I’m out of my mind, but the truth is that you need to open your mind and stop being judgmental and rude.
