I'm aware that the news is sourced elsewhere, however I assume the reporting of PPV's is done in house? Anyway, I didn't watch Battleground and have no intention really, so decided to support Rajah and read their report of it.

This is at the end. It is a spoiler of what happened if anyone cares:

All four men are down now as the fans start stomping their feet and clapping their hands as the intensity builds towards what appears to be the end of tonight's WWE Battleground pay-per-view main event.

Each guy starts showing signs of life and here we go. The clock says 10:50pm Eastern Time, so we're clearly nearing the finish. Each guy hits their finisher in a sequence, concluding with Cena hitting the Attitude Adjustment for the 1-2-3. The show goes off of the air with Cena celebrating and the announce team plugging the Battleground post-show, which will feature an "exclusive interview" with John Cena.

So yeah, I know who won, but no idea how.

It told you HOW he won. Are you're wondering who he pinned?

Stuff like this is why I don't use the main page when I score Fantasy WWE. There are other sites that do a great job of play-by-play, and really let you follow along. The people that do it for Rajah just don't care enough to put in the effort.

Yes, the biggest part I cared about was the ending, I know idea who hit what finisher on who or who he pinned.

If you want the details:
Reigns speared Kane and then got RKO'd by Orton. Orton then got an AA from Cena onto Kane, and Cena pinned Kane to win.
Which is definitely a bit more than just each guy hitting his finisher.

This is awful.

Am I wasting my time complaining on the forums? Are the people who man the site not on the forums?

Seriously who is the person in charge of copying and pasting these articles and pressing "submit" because anyone else could do a better job and at least change them around and make them interesting - or in this instance actually give some information or facts.

Cewsh
January 6th, 2015, 9:00 PM
Each poster is individually in charge of what they post and how. There are only loose guidelines as to how this must be done, and no one oversees them on a post by post basis. Issues with individual posts really need to be taken up with the authors themselves, but there is no easy way to communicate with them, even between fellow authors.

It isn't a waste of time to point out these issues, and positive changes have been made in the past because of similar criticisms. But there is a limited amount that anyone can really do unless GBF or I are given some kind of expanded reach in that area.

When you say author? I mean it's a cut and paste job from another forums so how do people not know someone else is doing it?

Cewsh
January 7th, 2015, 1:41 PM
I'm not sure what you mean. The "reporters" are well aware they're copying and pasting. They just don't care.

turdpower
January 7th, 2015, 2:07 PM
I know they are well aware they are copying and pasting. I'm not for one second thinking they don't understand copy and paste.

My point is. If we have posters X, Y and Z. How do they know who posts what? Do they do shifts or what? How has nobody posted the same as someone else?

Cewsh
January 7th, 2015, 2:28 PM
They seem to go in shifts. If you'll notice, for the most part it's one person at a time reporting stories during one part of the day and then the next. Plus, if you post something that has already been done, you can always just edit it after you've posted.

But if you're asking if there's any kind of established way of deciding who covers what, there isn't as far as i'm aware.

turdpower
January 7th, 2015, 5:58 PM
I don't notice really because I don't go on it that often and I don't read every article only ones that I want to read from the headline.

Copying and pasting articles must be so boring and unrewarding - what do they get out of it?

No, what does the person get out of it?

Why does someone spend his day copying and pasting things? What is his reward?

Someone reading something you've copied and pasted is not rewarding.

Not rewarding to you or I, I agree. But there's a huge number of people who do this and things much like it.

Sting slams his baseball bat onto the stick part of HHH's sledgehammer, breaking it in half. HHH looks scared now as he's weaponless. Sting drops his bat and goes after HHH, firing away at him with punches in the corner. Sting does his chest-beatnig caveman thing again and then flies into the corner, blasting HHH with a Stinger Splash. He yells at him to get up. He goes for another Stinger Splash, but this time Sting runs right into a shot from the head of the sledgehammer, which HHH picked up and vlasted Sting with. 1-2-3. Sting wins. So, it's pretty likely Sting is going to do at least one more match. What an awesome spectacle here at WrestleMania 31. "And the right side won again," says JBL as HHH's music plays and D-X stands with him in the ring, while nWo tends to the fallen Stinger.

Spot the massive gaffe.

Vlasted is a typo.

Sting winning is not.

The_Mike
April 3rd, 2015, 6:13 PM
You're being pedantic. It's just someone typing too fast and making a mistake by writing the wrong word out of several he's just written a dozen times in a paragraph. It's not as if the front page announced the death of Obama when they meant Osama.

turdpower
April 3rd, 2015, 6:49 PM
Of course I am - everything else on the news website is copied and pasted from somewhere else. The one opportunity the website gets to shine is this and they've fucked it up.

Like not even gone back and corrected - it's still like this now. Shit.

The_Mike
April 3rd, 2015, 6:51 PM
I don't think it's a big deal that they made a mistake typing as fast as they could during a live broadcast but, yeah, the fact that it is still wrong is sheer laziness.

:lol: That's fucking amazing. More reviews need to be like that.

"Seeing Sheamus and Balor in the same ring, two heroes for us, was when the tears really started coming. It's moments like this that wrestling is still real to us. "Amhrán na bhFiann" was playing in my head for the remainder of the show."

Every other match getting "This one beat that one" and then going on about a Summer Rae promo.

Fantastic.

Injured WWE Diva Layla returned to in-ring action at the WWE live event in Dortmund, Germany on Friday night, working a six-Divas tag-team match.

Layla teamed up with Emma and Natalya to defeat the team of Cameron, Tamina Snuka and Rosa Mendes.

Below is a photo of Layla at the event last night.

Would have been much better if this was the article

Jim Ross recently updated the Q&A section of his official website, JRsBarBQ.com (http://www.jrsbarbq.com) to answer questions from fans on a variety of subjects. Below are some highlights.

On the "Kiss My Arse" match at Extreme Rules: "I don't know the rules but it fits the 'extreme' theme one has to think."

On WWE dropping first-names of NXT stars when they get called up: "I don't know the rules but it fits the 'extreme' theme one has to think."

On possibly doing a "shoot interview" with Jim Cornette: "I don't know the rules but it fits the 'extreme' theme one has to think."

On possibly doing some announcing for New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) again: "I don't know the rules but it fits the 'extreme' theme one has to think."


To read more questions and answers from the WWE Hall Of Famer, visit his official website at JRsBarBQ.com (http://www.jrsbarbq.com/jrs-qa). You can also order JR's Bar-B-Q products online, which I've tried personally and would highly recommend (especially the beef jerky), visit WWEShop.com (http://shop.wwe.com/JR%27s-BBQ/shop-wwe-products-jrsbbq,default,sc.html).
