Default The Professional Wrasslin' Thread



THAT'S RIGHT BOYS AND GIRLS, GENTS AND LADIES, LADDIES AND LASSIES, it is time for the discussion to re-begin about the greatest form of theater ever crafted in this fine world of crafting. The land of adorable babyfaces (the good guys) and disgusting, dirty heels (the bad guys), and gigantic fucking belts made of gold because fuck you.

Let's start off with a look at the current landscape of the Wrasslin industry, shall we?

To begin with:

WWE is the Vince McMahon Jr's ultimate plan, his glorious revenge upon the wrestling world, the beast that swallowed up and absorbed all of its territorial rivals. A worldwide juggernaut based in America but also dominating the rest of the world, specifically reaching into the UK, Saudi Arabia (for some fucking reason), and China as of recently. Currently in its PG Reality Era and the undisputed champion of the business.

Current Champions:

RAW Brand:

WWE Universal Championship - Brock Lesnar (Beyond face or heel status)

Women's Champion - Ronda Rousey (Face, maybe turning Heel?)

Intercontinental Champion - Finn Balor (Face)

Men's Tag Team Champions - The Revival (Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson)

Women's Tag Team Champions - The Boss N' Hug Connection (Sasha Banks and Bayley)

Smackdown Live! Brand:

WWE Champion - Daniel Bryan (Heel)

Women's Champion - Asuka (Face)

United States Champion - R. Truth (Face)

Tag Team Champions - The Usos

205 Live

Cruiserweight Champion - Buddy Murphy (Heel)

NXT

NXT Champion - Tomasso Ciampa (Heel as fuck)

North American Champion - Velveteen Dream (Face)

Women's Champion - Shayna Baszler (Heel)

Tag Team Champions - The War Raiders (Hanson and Rowe)

NXT UK

NXT United Kingdom Champion - Pete Dunne (Tweener/Face)

UK Women's Champion - Toni Storm

Tag Team Champions - James Drake and Zack Gibson

Everything Else

Ok and we're done with WWE for now. Do you see all that shit up there? Yeah, that's why they dominate. RAW and Smackdown are on TV taking up two days of the week of mainstream worldwide networking, NXT grabs the indie fans, the UK is, well, in the UK and also appeals to indie fans, etc. It's nutty.

Next up, I don't have it in me to write up any more champions. So, in no order:

All Elite Wrestling

New Japan Pro Wrestling

All Japan Pro Wrestling

Dragon Gate

Lucha Libre Worldwide (AAA)

Ring of Honor

Pro Wrestling Guerilla

Combat Zone Wrestling

Revolution Pro Wrestling

Progress Wrestling

SHIMMER

Chikara

There's many more brands of course, probably a little tiny one near you local even, but WWE is so huge these are all just big fish in little ponds at best. Nobody else is truly worldwide except for New Japan which is expanding slowly into America.

Anyways, Big Gold is the best belt, The Undertaker losing to Brock Lensar is great, Mustafa Ali is the best wrestler in WWE right now, and AJ Styles deserved a better title run in terms of content despite its length.

Discuss.
