Just a discussion thread for other closet fans like me, I don't pony up for the PPV's, but i enjoy raw and smackdown.
Whats everyone think of the WM25 lineup so far? I think the orton-HHH match should be intersting, fans seem to be enjoying the storyline. The tag team match is also looking to be pretty good, though morrision needs to split off from the miz soon, he's too good a preformer to be stuck as a midlevel tag heel.
The micheals-taker match would have intrigued me alot more about 5 years ago, just because both guys are slowing down with thier in ring preformances. Should still be a good match though.
The triple threat match doesn't really intrest me, the only good in ring worker, IMO, is edge. Cena is good on the mic, and he's over huge with the fans, but i always find his matches subpar, and show is just a speed bump.
The one match i just don't get is the Y2J vs legands one. I know they got stuck when rourke pulled out on them, and i reserve the right to change my stance on this, but thats a terrable match to book arguably your 2nd best, 3rd for sure, heel in. It's just such a throw away match, and chris is to good a preformer to have baby sit 3 (at this point in there lives) non-wrestlers.
Stemming from that, The WWE needs to really learn how to write for heels. They have 3 heels with great heat that they aren't using to the best of thier ability. I mean, Y2J only has about 3-4 high level years left of in ring preformance, and your tossing one WM away on this match?
and orton is constantly booked as a coward, despite his entire gimmick being that he's unstoppable. I understand the heel dynamic is to be a coward at heart, but why is it that only hunter can get the " im a good wrestler AND a heel" push? Orton clealy deserves that push as well.
If you look at thier heel booking for WM, its laughable. They have jerico (again, mabey they change this match up, but right now its horrid) who has great heat in a comedy match.
they have hunter and orton finshing off a storyline that orton never should have been part of, thus having zero top level heel heat involved with faces.
and edge is in a match that for some reason inludes cena, which we have seen countless times, except now show is in it. weeee.
what are others thoughts on WM?
