It's soon-to-be that time of NEXT year again... the only real way to kick off the GTZ trading season: the GTZ Royal Rumble match!

Do you want some free Amazon $$$ and the chance to become king of the GTZ mountain? Well, this game is easy and you don't even need to be a wrestling fan!

image

Just post in this thread and you'll be entered in the GTZ Royal Rumble. Once we reach 30 entries, I'll randomly generate a list of the usernames. THEN tune into the WWE Royal Rumble on Sunday, January 28th to see the big match! Your Royal Rumble entry will correspond with the number your name appears on the list. Whichever wrestler is in that spot is your official avatar for the Royal Rumble game. I will try to be online the night of the Rumble to give real-time results and announcements concerning entries and eliminations.

If your avatar ends up being the last man standing - YOU ARE ALSO THE LAST GTZer STANDING!

If we don't get 30 entries, I will simply restart the list until all spots are filled, giving those who post early a greater chance at winning if the match doesn't fill up completely.


Win the Rumble, you get a late Christmas gift from me!
That gift is a $25 AMAZON GIFT CARD!

MCMAHON ALERT! MCMAHON ALERT! MCMAHON ALERT! MCMAHON ALERT!

I don't want to fund your disGUSTING Amazon purchase DAMN IT.

Honest question. I've been out of the loop for almost 6 months now. On a scale of 1-10, how do we rate the product currently? Is it worth getting the Network again? I've always been a RR fan, so I may come back for a bit, if only for RR and WrestleMania.

I haven't watched the past month or so, been too busy, but honestly I'd slap a 7.5-8 on it at the moment. There will always be those detractors who need it to be more edgy like Attitude Era but if you're into good in-ring stuff, it can be pretty satisfying. Of course, it's WWE, so there is a lot of questionable garbage mixed in the as always, and short TV matches, but I've enjoyed most of the PPVs these past few months. I thought Survivor Series was great. Peronally, I enjoy the "Lesnar reigns supreme and only defends once in a while" while this indie-bred under-card jockey for position. On Smackdown, Styles is WWE Champion and Owens, Zayn, and other great workers are getting chances to shine.

In my opinion though, the Network is worth it no matter the current product. NXT is consistently great and their Takeover events are still the real PPVs to see throughout the year. And all the old-school stuff is pretty much a gold mine to me. Also, podcasts help my enjoyment a lot too. "What Happened When Mondays" is a podcast with Tony Schiavone and Conrad Thompson, they provide alternate commentary to WCW PPVs and it can be both interesting and funny. It's real fun to watch and listen along at the same time, especially as somebody who hasn't seen many WCW PPVs.

tl;dr if you like that indie style and old school stuff, I'd say WWE could be a fun watch for you right now. But always beware the "TV" effect... there's a lot of turd in there too.

Bret Hart turned heel. the Undertaker went on the greatest winning streak of all time, IRS retired, a jobber named the 1-2-3 Kid pinned Razor Ramon, almost every match that could be considered the best wrestling match of all time happened, blood is frowned upon, Jake the Snake is sober, the cowboy Billy Gunn is called Mr. Ass now, women wrestling is up, midget wrestling is down.

Jerry Lawlor is still on commentary. Golddust and Kane still show up. Some things never change.

If you're into midget wrestling, we had the best midget match of all time a couple years back. Since then, we've had a real lack of midgets.
