Default Explanation For The New Hometowns

"Some or all of the Canadian babyfaces have been told that they want to change their hometowns to cities in the U.S. The decision was made prior to Chris Benoit winning the World Heavyweight Title, but that they gradually want to do it with Edge and Chris Jericho (who is now billed as from Manhasset, NY, which is where he was born, starting this week). I think Edge will be billed from Tampa, FL, where he lives. Christian, since he's a heel, apparently is from Toronto again (despite announcing Tampa as his new hometown on a RAW over two years ago to turn heel in Canada). Vince McMahon (or someone who doesn't think like a wrestling fan and convinced Vince) was concerned that so many of his top babyfaces on RAW are billed from Canada and was afraid it would cause an anti-Canadian backlash among his U.S. audience, which is the prime audience. They're nuts. Secondly, everyone knows they are Canadian to begin with and never cared about it in anyway negative. It won't help in the U.S. and if it has any effect, it would be to cause a minor Canadian backlash since WWE has generally been more popular per-capita in Canada and a lot of Canadian fans take this stuff very seriously, and it's a legit slap in the face. The story I got is that the wrestlers aren't happy with this doctrine (most notably Benoit and Jericho), but nobody wants to rock the boat on it for obvious reasons. Then to make things even funnier, for Backlash, they are pushing Benoit's return to Edmonton including listing the terminal and flight he's coming in on, hoping to get a huge group of fans there for good video footage."

I think that it really and truely is a slpa in the face to Canadian fans...when I heard Chris Benoit being announced as from Atlanta, I said out loud, "what the hell is that?" Candian fans draw just as much business as the U.S. per capita, and doing something like that discourages Canadians to even be fans of the Canadian wrestlers...that's a big reason why they liked them so much, because of their Canadian heritage.

I think it is a stupid thing. I don't know of any fellow American wrestling fans that give a shit where a guy is from. You like a wrestler because of his/her gimmick, looks, and/or skills, not of where they are from. I don't know of anyone who said I like this guy, but he is from Canada or whereever else.

But, they are changing only the Canadiens' hometowns. That is bullshit. And Vince already is looked at skeptically in Canada. This isn't going to help him or the company.

Whatever. First of all, you don't have any depth of knowledge about any of that stuff, so you're just talking out of your ass. Secondly, you wouldn't be saying any of that shit if Barry Bonds wasn't some roided up freak who you're in love with.

It's fucking gay. I have better things to do than deal with someone who can't even debate a point, rather changes the subject again and again to deflect the fact that he's dead wrong. It's what dumbass 6th graders do...


I honestly don't give a fuck about your opinion. Like I told Alex, they're just words on a screen. I can't believe you don't get that concept...but okay.

I mean...you're the kind of guy that thinks if you yell louder than the other person, you will win a debate. And that's not new either...I've pretty much thought that about you from day one...

I didn't want to put it that way, but since you want to press on...

Lame dude. Just lame. I have better shit to do. You probably should too...but I'm betting you don't...

Late.

I personally could give a shit and I figure they should change everybodys hometown to suit their gimmick. Aren't the Dudleys from Dudlyville or something. That makes the most sense. It should just be a part of their character

It's totally not a big deal to me...I couldn't give to shits about it..I don't think many fans pay much attention to it anyway..Like,I didn't know they had changed Y2J's Hometown in the intro...Maybe it does matter to some Canadian Fans though..

Well, personally, I was getting tired of the fact that when Y2J was a heel he kept mentioning he was from Canada, when he really was born in NY. So, I'm glad they changed his. Everyone else doesn't really matter, because Chris Benoit never really said he was proud to be Canadian. I mean, the only real benefit to knowing where someone is from is if its close to you, you might see them shopping at a mall or something. Exodus is right, it should fit their gimmick. I mean, the Dudleys were fine being from Dudleyville, but Benoit wouldn't sound good coming from Benoitville. Overall, I think they should just announce weight and name, and thats it.
