... they came to you and basically told you that you were going to put people over from this point on-be a jobber-no particular reason, but thats all they wanted out of you for the remainder of your contract..what would u do?

I'd ask them, "If I do a good job with what you ask, and some new talents gets over because of it, could there be a chance that I could get a new contract? Even if your only plan for me is to put over talent." Val Venis has had a job for a damn long time. I'd love to have that kind of security.

I'd job anyway, and job the best I can. Because they pay good money, and I want to be good to management and hopefully they will see something in me to advance my career. Either way, it's their fault paying that much to a jobber.
It's not like I have any reason to be pissed about being chosen to lose matches. As long as I lose goood I'll be happy.

Put on some damn good matches despite being a jobber. Hopefully it gets me noticed by someone up high. I can also use sucking up and kissing ass tactics if need be, especially with guys like Triple H and The Undertaker.
If it doesn't work out for me after that, I ride out the end of my contract and then work out something with TNA or build up my reputation again in ROH before doing that so I don't get a similar treatment in TNA that I did in WWE.

Oh oh oh oh, I know, I'll get on the mic and start a VKM chant, tear up around the ring side, no sell the legdrop, call Paul Heyman the greatest wrestling mind in history, go to the back and bitch-slap HHH and lecture him on backstage politics and then go and smoke dope with RVD
I know I'm in the minority, but I'd love to be in the position where managment thinks highly enough on me to get me to test out the new guys and see who's good and who's not. Plus if I were good enough as a jobber I'd pick up a few Heat victories and a ton of b****es
The true definition of irony is people complaining about Bobby Lashley not being good enough to hold a belt that has been held by people like Tito Santana, Mikey Whipwreck, Justin Credible, and Rhino.
What would WWE gain by telling talent this? It's inviting sabotage. Even Val and Scotty 2 Hotty probably don't get TOLD "You will job forever." But they do get upwards of $300,000 a year, so I bet they are happy.

Ha Ha. That was pretty spot on to what I thought I'd see in here. It's been pretty opposite though. That's pretty cool.

Unless the money was absolutely incredible and I got good coverage, job security, and benefits that are just too good for me to pass up, I'd bust my ass, but would tell them not to expect me to sign a new contract if they plan on asking. I would hope that I can bring more to the table than bump around for five minutes.
