This is a Professional Wrestling blog.
We have a fucking TMZ LAST TIME ON REAL WORLD intro
And now lie detectors.
Who is the father of Miz’s baby you guys.
But I’ll take a walrus chant.
I mean, if you’re going to do you people you might as well do it with some feeling.
Also, babyface Miz approaching. WWE can you just, like, let things happen naturally, don’t The Ryback or Funk My Momma The Miz.
Worst: I’d Like Our Moral Code Back, Please
Okay, so the match ends with John Cena throwing CM Punk sideways toward the ropes (very specifically so) with an Attitude Adjustment and covering him for the three. Punk gets his foot on the ropes at two, but the referee (who looks like an extra from The Outsiders) (the movie, I’m not saying he looks like Syxx) doesn’t see it and awards the match to Cena and Sheamus anyway. He didn’t just “not see it”, he saw his error, had it explained to him, then, instead of restarting the match or showing any sort of responsibility or remorse, just walked away going “welp, sorry, you lost”. Cena and Sheamus leave to go hug (or whatever) and Punk gets stuck “whining” about the loss all the way to the back.
I want to see bad guys get defeated in pro wrestling. I don’t want to see them lose unfairly and complain about it.
I feel like I’ve written a Russian novel’s worth of Worst paragraphs about WWE losing its moral code, but stuff like this is just getting tiresome. Good guys can do whatever they want because the fans like them. Bad guys get cheated but shouldn’t complain about it, because they’re bad guys. It doesn’t make sense. Back in the long long ago, that foot-on-the-ropes finish was to either get you excited for a guy you like winning only to have it snatched way by reality (or worse, by a guy who put his foot on the ropes AFTER the three and pretended like the ref missed it, because he’s a scumbag) or to give the guy you like sympathy for a rematch. With this and the Sheamus match from SummerSlam, it’s become a thing for bad guys to complain about, because ONLY PEOPLE YOU BOO CAN FEEL AS THOUGH THEY’VE BEEN WRONGED. Everybody else has to just move on and challenge the guy who cheated them to a MATCH HERE TONIGHT~!!
Fan favorites are the ones who should be generating crowd sympathy. They should be people we want to see win, because they’ve been wronged in some way, or treated badly by someone, or underestimated. They’re Dusty Rhodes, a common man trying to take wrestling’s top prize from rich socialite cheating prick Ric Flair and his gaggle of asshole friends. The way things are set up now, WWE heels are the ones who attempt to generate sympathy, and WWE babyfaces are guys who smile and wave and clap and just destroy everyone. You know why? Because modern wrestling audiences are callous as f**k, and have no interest in living vicariously through a good person … they want to live vicariously through someone who wins all the time and doesn’t think too much. Were you just treated unfairly? WHY ARE YOU STILL TALKING ABOUT IT, THIS IS ALL ABOUT ME
It’s a devaluation of class, intelligence and integrity, and a pretty sorrowful example of how WWE has taught its audience to think what WWE does is what’s best. WWE doesn’t play fair, they just win all the time and do whatever they want with whoever they want. Are you complaining about it at all? Shut up, loser!"
So there’s really no definitive winner still between them.
that’s a hard trigger to pull. Like Austin/Rock. The only real clean win I can remember between them was their last major encounter at WM19, and Austin was on his way out.
It is because I love Punk and Jericho more than words can say that I want them to stick to what they say and make things interesting again. I want them to be interesting again. I know the god tier they can reach, and if they can both just remember that they’re really just a couple of marks that hit it big, they can bring us some great stuff coming into WrestleMania.
Punk rewarded me for my Faith. Let’s see if the King of the World can do the same again.
And realize that you complaining about there “not being enough answers” and what have you is part of the deal.
First of all, you should want to be a Little Jimmy and should feel pleased that WWE is baiting you along like this.
Second of all, it is perfectly unreasonable to ask a completely separate entity to his this sweet spot that is unique to you.
Oh, and Punk doesn’t need the championship. We should be concerned with him being in compelling stories, and he is certainly in one. Why are we so hung up on championships and win/loss records?
