Promos By Hyphen: Is This The End?

Sorry I haven’t written. I started my annual WWE Year End Awards column but it’s sat unfinished for a month or so. I hope to have it done before next month’s Battleground PPV. But what I’m really here for is to not complain about a man I once praised, but the product in general.

In Defense of Michael Bay Movies

Michael Bay

Before heading to the theaters to see TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION, I wanted to watch the first three Michael Bay TRANSFORMERS movies to see if I still felt the way I did upon watching them the first time: I loved the first one, hated the second one, and thought the third was okay.

I watched TRANSFORMERS last night and I still love it, even with all of its Shia LeBeouf-ness, and it got me thinking about the kinds of movies Michael Bay makes. The internet is awash with Bay bashing because the internet loves nothing more than an easy target (and Bay is certainly a self-created easy target), but for all of the talk of how EXTINCTION will surely suck, it’s still going to fly by $100 million at the domestic box office on its opening weekend.

Payback 2014 (June 1, 2014) – Allstate Arena (Rosemont, Illinois) – Main Event: The Shield vs. Evolution (No Holds Barred Six Man Elimination Match) – Announcers: Michael Cole, Jerry “the King” Lawler, John Bradshaw Layfield; Pre-Show: Josh Matthews, Booker T, Kofi Kingston, and Alex Riley.

The 2014 edition of Payback had one major drawback entering the program, and that was the absence of WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan, due to a neck injury. You have to feel for Bryan; even if it’s just kayfabe that the company doesn’t believe in you, you have to still want to be the guy standing on the top of the mountain, holding the belts. Bryan hit the top at WrestleMania XXX, but since then, Bryan’s starred in a monster movie feud with the newly monster-ized Kane terrorizing him and his wife, Brie Bella, and undergone neck surgery, putting him on the sideline.
