As previous posts have explained, Geeky Gem and I are both currently going through a wrestling phase. It only seems right then that whilst I am watching the most amount of wrestling TV shows and PPV’s I have ever seen, I would have a few things to say on the happenings in and around the square circle. I’m going to assume that everyone knows that WWE is a work, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t athletic, impressive and dangerous, so now we have all that over and done with…
I must admit to not really liking Cena before Wrestlemania, I wanted The Rock to kick his ass, and was very happy with the match in Miami. Rock has still got it, but I thought Cena did well, mainly, even if he can’t sell properly at times and doesn’t take things seriously. After his big loss at Wrestlemania, Cena came into contact with a returning Brock Lesnar. An F5 later and Lesnar, Cena at Extreme rules was on. The actual match was pretty much what I expected. Lesnar dominated, and Cena came back with a two move flurry at the end. Brock lost, but still looked like an absolute beast, cutting Cena hard-way to the mouth at Extreme Rules and a RAW before it. Cena looked scared. Weirdly, Cena seems to be facing John Laurenitus next, umm, OK. Brock Lesnar breaking HHH’s arm was pretty cool though.
A feud with Chris Jericho is dragging on and on, and Punk keeps beating Jericho clean every time, I wonder what Jericho did to piss off management. At this point I’m finding the whole Jericho, Punk feud pretty boring, I hope it’s over. A match with Daniel Bryan at Over The Edge looks promising though, these two are my favourites.
An 18 second loss to the boring Sheamus at Wrestlemania was a travesty, especially when you look at the time given to other far less talented wrestlers on the card, but Bryan has done well from the loss. He may not be champ any more, but his ‘Yes, Yes!’ catchphrase is being chanted by the crowd and other wrestlers and his stuff with A.J. Has been great. He is a great heel, and it would be good to see him go into an extended run with CM Punk over the coming months.
There was no point in putting the title on Big Show, he can do nothing with it, thank Vince that it is back around the waist of Cody Rhodes. The tag team scene is awful at the moment, Kofi and R-Truth are currently champs, a good thing I think, but WWE needs to do more with their tag division, because it is basically dead right now. Santino Morella is still US Champ, and despite myself, I like the guy, although I feel sorry for Dolph Ziggler, not so much fro Jack Swagger, who has to lose to him seemingly every week.
The Divas are awful aren’t they? Just no point in them at all, especially when they take up valuable time on RAW and SMACKDOWN, and on PPV’s. Just make them all valets again, I’m not being sexist, it’s just that they are all terrible at wrestling. Sack the Great Khali, he is useless and can’t walk. Lord Tensai, looks like a giant baby, but at least he is better now than he was as Albert. Ryback is OK, Vince clearly likes him. Sheamus should lose the World Title, he is very very boring. Randy Orton is better in the heel role. Mark Henry is pathetic, please keep him away from any titles. The main event scene needs to have a bit of a shake up.
So there you are, my thoughts on just over a month of happenings in the WWE. We will return to this subject soon, thanks for reading.
