Oh, that tricky De Sade but she might’ve outwitted herself this time.
Vote to see what’s coming up on Friday!
This is gonna be sweet, go Ultragirl!
I’m actually back early, nothing on the net to do. DragonManRen, the stumble into wins was actually mentioned within the context of one of the previous entries not just from me. I actually go back and do my research before commenting so not to put my foot in my mouth too much. I did not say that she is still stumbling into wins, again I said that we’ve been reading for years, I’ve seen the improvement and I will never in my life as a wrestling fan not acknowledge that, I just didn’t mention it in my previous comment.
And the Rey reference, Sabrina isn’t Rey nor a full high-flying lucha type wrestler. Chloe took time to climb the cage because of her leg and possibility of being slower, so Sabrina didn’t just hop up the ropes then lunch up to the cage railing within seconds to run to Chloe’s side.
To Albone: Personality flaws I see, her naivety, recklessness in some of her actions I’ve noticed, the go with the flow with no real goal in mind but to win and please the crowd I’ve noticed, I am pleased to see that the ‘gold fever’ has finally struck her, and the feeling down with doubt and self-pity after her loss, I couldn’t help but notice but really I had no sympathy for her for it. I do have an eye for detail.
Perhaps I have just been too overexposed to Sabrina, and the faces of prowrestling I’ve been seeing on TV (I swear to all that is holy if I see Kelly Kelly get another win over a well seasoned female wrestler, not Diva, I am putting my foot through my TV).
I think I need to see more of the Rival Angels than just Ultra-Girl Sabrina. If the title of this was Ultra-Girl: Sabrina Mancini then that would be a different matter I suppose.
And I’m not just a Chloe fan I’m a fan of a good heel. Really without them it would just be these girls with the same goal vying in friendly competition, if we wanted that we’d watch a high school wrestling match.
Perhaps it was all of the events that led up to this moment that made some of us expect more from Chloe and the Belles and seeing it fall apart, though possible in reality, is disappointing.
Back to DragonManRen with this one, my mention of Perfection entering into the mix would be something of a transition. Yes we see that the Hell’s Belles has fallen apart, that being in Paris has some effect on Chloe (yeah coming for a poor and possibly broken home as seen with Homecoming and what she has to say about Paris in Fashionably Late) combined with her already poor PR, they’ve closed that chapter themselves not Sabrina. If Perfection was to enter in to make good on her words wouldn’t it give Sabrina the push to show that her wins weren’t flukes that she can actually beat her again thus beating some of her own near self-destructive sense of self-doubt?
I don’t even remember who Perfection is. Clearly, she is not a major part of the story at this point. The Belles are. We can’t have somebody who has had no screen time showing up and ruining a grudge match like this between Sabrina and the woman who has been trying to end her professional career before it even started.
They did it with Trish and Mickie James with the introduction of Beth Phoenix. A small introduction as old rival following an in ring interruption and Mickie’s expression and people ate it up until Beth’s injury.
This is a comic about wrestling, not a wrestling show. The format is completely different, and requires a different structure.
That’s exactly it. There’s plenty of shows, RAW, TNA, Wrestleicious, SHIMMER, etc. Part of what makes Rival Angels unique is that it’s about 4 girls who happen to be wrestlers. Sure Sabrina gets a big part of it, but we hardly saw her at all between Krystin’s match through the Brenda/Black Widow match.
So an old rival boosting about how Sabrina’s wins are merely a fluke wouldn’t make due to I don’t know force Sabrina to prove her wrong and by that overcoming some of that self-doubt?
And even if this is a comic about wrestling and not a wrestling show there is a wrestling show within it and we are seeing how it works no? And in the end of it all it all comes down to what will bring in the ratings and the cash. There’s no telling what management might do for something like that.
And no offense meant by this Albone but the lack of Sabrina during those matches is hardly noticed in comparison of how much we’ve seen her up until then. At times it’s hard to realize that this is a comic about 4 girls when we mostly see the one.
Anyhow this is the last I will comment on this as I can see us going around in circles over and over again pointing out the same things with none of us actually seeing or perhaps unwilling to see the point the other is trying to make.
This feud with Chloe De Sade is highly public and highly anticipated, enough that it is the co-main event at a huge PPV event. No wrestling show would diminish the impact of this feud’s resolution by interfering with it with a reference to another feud that very few people are going to know or care about. Or rather, if they did, it would be a remarkably poor decision.
Also, I think that even if this was a show, not a comic, it would be time for this storyline to reach a satisfying conclusion, not segue into another, similar, but less interesting story.
However, this is a comic, and interference would ruin the resolution of the grudge between Chloe and Sabrina, and we don’t have the luxury or seeing it all play out next week. This match has been in the making since strip 7, and now, years later, at strip 581, it is approaching a conclusion. I don’t think we really want to drag it out more into another, even-more-final confrontation.
See Cloe is NOT a good heel. A good heel is Yvonne. She’s manipulative smart and knows when to bend/break rules and when not to Cloe has NO intelligence NO real skill or talent other than cheating and no morals how anyone can be a fan of hers at this point I dont know.
Sabrina’s going a little old school TNA, Elix Skipper style. I dig.
It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not.
a french man…
Epic hurricanrana coming up
Albone needs at least 100 posts on this one. Who’s with me?
The fact that half of them are MGC’s tantrum kind of diminishes the impact of the first comments page to reach 100.
Can’t remember the last time one page caused so much discussion. lol
LMAO this is the first time the comments have been more entertaining than the comic.
I haven’t commented in sooo long. Albone, I’m still waiting to see MORE OF THE MADDIE FALLOUT!!!
I’m glad you haven’t forgotten about Maddie/Michael/Brooke because it’s soon coming to a head.
Oh Mo Chen no forget… I even asked about it… back on page 1. LOL.
OOH that will be a fun thing to see Albone. I almost feel sorry for Brooke when he tells her he had no intention of leaving Maddie for her.
I kinda hope he gets fired and broken up with, losing both his girlfriend and any reason for Brooke to care about him.
