Talking Smack

Screenwriter, director and “Wrestling Isn’t Wrestling” creator Max Landis started a petition on Change.org to bring Talking Smack back as a weekly show.

As reported earlier this week, the show has been dropped as a weekly post-show series on WWE Network, but it will continue as a post-show for Smackdown branded pay-per-views. Landis posted the following, praising the show for its format and the ability to push performers; the petition currently has more than 11,000 signees since being launched:

“Talking Smack” was an innovative, engaging, compelling and reliably hilariously funny closer look at the characters and world of the WWE.  It drove deeper interest in characters who often didn’t get time to speak on television, and was home to some of the best segments in recent history.

The informal style, spearheaded by the grounded, friendly conversational performance of host Renee Young and bolstered by Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon, who act like real people, shows a side of the wild storylines that makes even the most silly and ridiculous situation on Smackdown suddenly seem remarkably real, fun, and complex.

Shows like “Talking Smack,” that broaden the world of the WWE Universe and give a looser-structured but tighter-focused look at the Superstars within it, are integral to growing interest in story-lines and characters; they are not just frosting.  I know this, because due to Talking Smack, I am a fan with a more vested and profound appreciation for Erick Rowan, The Usos, Alexa Bliss, and even more prominent characters like AJ Styles.

WWE prides itself on hearing the voice of the WWE Universe, so let’s speak up.  Sign this petition, and let’s make it clear that WE, the WWE Universe, the $9.99ers and the crowds on Youtube who make WWE’s channel the second most watched content IN THE WORLD, want “Talking Smack” BACK.

Stand up and shout loud for an uncommon, and uncommonly smart show.
