1. It’s en vogue to poke fun at oblivious fanboys… but could they be actively destroying the industry they’re obsessed with? 

    Today, RazörFist rants to uncover the truth. 

     


  2. gammacazador said: Thank god you are not a booker, no offense, but guys like Mick Foley and Chris Jericho have explained why Lesnar was the right choice. As Foley himself explained, he's the only guy that could handle the heat that comes with ending the streak.

    What heat? 

    The entire angle went up in a cloud of indifference! You could have booked the arena janitor to break the streak and evoked a more passionate reaction. 

    It simply accomplished nothing

    He’s no bigger a heel than he was. Neither is Heyman. He’s no more active than he was. He’s transferring the rub to no one. No star has been built, no pay-per-view has been sold, no item of merchandise has been flying off store shelves as a result of the half-wit decision to hand the streak to Block Lesnar. 

    To date, the worst booking decision in modern wrestling… was the choice to turn Stone Cold Steve Austin heel at Wrestlemania 17. Thirteen years later, the negative effects of that one decision still adversely affect the company. Within months, the company had plummeted in ratings and popularity and simply never regained that position again. Ever

    In the long run - and you can feel free to quote me on this - the decision to drop the streak to Lesnar? May very well eclipse Austin’s heel turn for sheer detrimental impact on the company. 

    In 2001, WWE wasn’t about to launch a prohibitively expensive-to-produce online network whose success depended on fans - old and new alike - being actively interested in their product. The very same fans they alienated - and in many cases will not ever get back - through this decision. In 2001, the company was in a much more secure financial position and better able to weather the resultant fallout. 

    As for Jericho and Foley? 

    They can flap their gums all they like. Professional Wrestlers and Industry Insiders share one talent in common: They’re excruciatingly good at generating excuses for why their horrendous ideas were ‘good for business’. It’s a byproduct of being so profoundly insulated within the wrestling bubble. Foley is the same guy who thought an unending procession of months booking 6-man-tag team matches with essentially the same participants as the main event on Raw and Smackdown was ‘best for business’ in 2000. He was wrong then, and he’s wrong now. 

    Godspeed!

  3. Since Wrestlemania, many, many, many, many, MANY rageaholics have inquired as to my undiluted opinion on the unceremonious end of The Undertaker’s streak.

    Tonight, on The Razör’s Edge, you get your wish.

I've been watching it for a long time but as a fellow stealth game lover (Chaos Theory being my favorite) I noticed you haven't mentioned Mark of the Ninja. A stealth game I consider the best the genre has produced since Splinter Cell Double Agent (I enjoyed Dishonored but as a stealth title, it was alright at best). I was wondering if you played it and, if you did, what was your take on it?

    I’ve played it, and I dig it massively. It’s a brilliant 2D platformer, a brilliant stealth game, and arguably the single most stylish video game of this generation. Really can’t say enough good things about Mark of the Ninja. 

    Buy that shit, rageaholics! 

    Godspeed!

    Eh, semi-solid, I’d say. 

    Get Eva Green in the room and we’ll soon fix that, however. 

    Godspeed!

  10. Arguably the biggest announcement in the history of this show.

    After five years of The Rageaholic, it’s time to come clean about RazörFist’s darkest secret…
