So the Interinactivity Returns tour has come to a close, and now I am back to the blissfully sane world of not watching any modern mainstream wrestling. Although, my timing is impeccable, because now TNA’s World Title scene actually sounds watchable.
And, despite what many of you probably think, I was actually hoping that I would see more in the products than what I expected to, like a reason to continue tuning back in. But I can’t even get motivated to watch CM Punk now, and that’s saying something.
I am interested to see what they’re going to do with Impact, as in whether it turns out to be anything different or whether it’ll just turn out like usual where they revert the show back to it’s normal awfulness after a couple weeks. Not interested enough to watch it, mind you. Interested enough to read about it (we really need to hire someone to recap Impact) and if it sounds good on a consistent basis, I’ll tune back in. I don’t see that happening though. I also think everyone is being a bit tough on this WWE tag-team of Air Boom. The name is absolutely ridiculous beyond belief, and yeah, they took two guys that were getting over on their own and threw them in the division for no reason at all, but, it’s produced some matches of pretty reasonable quality and the live crowds seem into it.
Joseph Hargrove: You know Smackdown sucks when you have a fluke champion like Del Rio and the Big Slow as your main event. Iâ€™m just glad I didnâ€™t get to see that train wreck.
Blair: Del Rio has talent – it’s just that you haven’t had the chance to see it a lot yet in WWE. I think his promos have been terrible, and I don’t know what kind of work can be done there, but I’m just talking credibility-wise here. I’m not saying they should book him to beat everyone or anything like that, but they’ve booked him to be SUCH a chump that he comes off as, like you say, a fluke champion. WWE booked The Miz and Shaemus the exact same way when they were World Champions too. Is there really an appeal to watching the match KNOWING that Shaemus or Miz (when they were champions) CAN’T beat John Cena without shenannigans? I don’t understand why they have to do that all the time now. Del Rio doesn’t look like he can beat anyone but John Morrison right now. And my guinea pig can beat John Morrison. And that guinea pig’s been dead for 6 years.
Joseph Hargrove: Same goes for the divas division IMO.
Blair: When Hargrove knocks the chicks, you knows its gots to be bad.
Blair: Oh yeah, I’ll totally admit that Cody’s brigade of carry-out clerks was pretty awesome. But, I’m not ready to be like “Cody’s promo was great, it was probably just the accoustics.” when I’ve never seen the crowd do anything for a Cody promo, nor have I ever seen one that I remembered. And are the matches that they show on SmackDown normally any good? Actually, now that I know what the cast of SmackDown is, forget I asked.
