Okay, I'll set the scene.

Two wrestlers in a feud. Let's say, to keep it modern, The Miz and John Cena.

The Miz beats down his recent opponent and starts to walk up the ramp in a cocky strut ...

... only to see John Cena at the top of the ramp. Now, what would you prefer to see:

John Cena staring Miz down in a glare and the pair of them eyeing each other with disgust, or
John Cena running down and clotheslining Miz into the floor and then pounding him?

honestly i dont mind i good beat down if its warrented. for example if the miz had done the same to cena then id be all for it.

however these days beatdowns are just too monotonous and the feuds run for too long.

Side-thought...what do you guys find more annoying - the Good Guys always winning with miraculous recoveries and bursts of energy (a la Hogan "Hulking up") or the Bad Guys always winning by cheating

They're as irritating as each other. And yet, the former is much less believable than the latter.

Now, when faces (a.k.a. good guys) cheat and win ... R.I.P. Eddie Guerrero.

I usually always hate the good guys.

I love heels

Don't mind heels winning at all, just by cheating. WCW was SO bad at doing this over and over and over and over...I recall them ruining a couple of PPV shows by having the main event being a total farce because of this.

Oh god yes...that was terrible

The whole nWo storyline ultimately ruined WCW - worked at the start but when nash went over and they had Bischoff etc...

Funny how we ended up going in a completely different direction in this topic. But this discussion's more interesting, carry on.
