An odd one I admit but 20-30 minute main events, not big well promoted matches on TV but when it's things like thrown together tag matches. I can sit though snappier mid-card stuff but when I've got little investment in the story lines or it seems pretty obvious what's going to happen. I'll say to myself "right, that's it ill skim to the last minute of Raw and have look if I missed anything." but most of the time I haven't and saved around half an hour. 

I'm with you, 95% of wrestling matches have no need to go over 12 minutes, main events included.......

Don West was fucking great fun during his heel run, not having that.

My excuse to post this..  

Shows that are packed with meaningless wrestling matches. AEW often does this, churning out admittedly good matches that mean nothing at all. It’s rare that I’ll actually switch off (although it has happened) but I’ll skip through them. Fyter Fest and Fight For the Fallen we’re both packed with matches that were of no consequence whatsoever. If I’m not invested in a wider story arch or a particular character, I’m not invested in the match.

Irish Whip — takes me right out of it. Once someone gets irish whipped and comes back off the ropes, I'm turning it off. I'll allow for a whip into the corner.

You must not watch a lot of wrestling then.

Itss the je of the few moves that look like that could be legit. I've been thrown off and if you get pushed yard you fly. 

Almost every move looks move contrived. Esp punches. We all know what it's like to be punched in the face. Ten in the corner was ridiculous.

Smaller wrestlers, bigger rings, and not enough of them have taken a 'shoot' whip.

The fact that the opponent will get posted into the corner and then wait is less forgivable, but none of this makes me switch off.

I'll hit fast-forward on the Bucks' entrance (I'll put up with their flashy shit in-ring, but they are staggeringly uncool) and if Brandi Rhodes comes out to wrestle. The spear is officially the "have this as a finisher because you'll fuck it up the least" of this generation.

Konnan constantly shoung "viva la raza" and "bowdy" something still has me saying "fuck off" when watching WCW on the Network not to dissimilar to when watching it all those years ago.

"Orele, Orele, let me speak on this. You like this shirt? Touch i- That's enoooooough!"

What a load of glorious bollocks.

If ever something was a perfect example of WCW's stupidity, that was it. Although you could argue they had too much TV time to fill, allowing Konnan to go out there week after week and piss away prime-time TV with tired catchphrases that didn't help get over a match, angle, or PPV was just criminal behaviour. Save that kind of shit for warming up the live crowd before the TV camera start rolling.

There was a point where Konnan would tell people to peel his potatoes and toss his salad, which came from the HBO prison special in the mid 90s. The former meant to lick balls, the latter to eat somebody's arsehole with jam or syrup. The guy in the documentary preferred syrup. 

WCW standards and practices clearly hadn't seen that show.
