The Great, The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly
This week in WWE just like many was a mixed bag from; great in ring competition all the way to the illogical booking decisions made buy Vince and his brain trust. Going forward I will do a weekly blog going over the majority of important outcomes of that various week. While WWE is the #1 company on the entire planet, however due too the up incoming Independent wrestling scene plus growing frustration WWE booking, the amount of people watching wrestling live has diminished. So no matter how much WWE will pretended that they do no wrong but a decline in ratings and attendance would strongly beg to differ with that narrative and this blog will hopefully point out just a few of the current many flaws that are infiltrating WWE.
In my opinion the best segment all week was The Undertaker/Shawn Micheal's promo was tremendous but also very sad that In 2018 still these guys have the ability to do what very few do; and that was their ability to hold the crowd in the palm of their hands. Most interestingly this was literately the 1st true signs that HBK actually might come out of retirement for at least one more match. Maybe I am looking to deeply into WWE scripting but their was a ton to look into and keep an eye out for.
Smackdown Live continues to be a far superior show than its counter point on Mondays night, and their are quite a few reasons for that. First and foremost its only 2 hours long and doesn't feel the need to place every "Superstar" on every show; which allows the fans not to get burned out on any 1 particular wrestler. Second no Roman Reigns; while that statement seems silly on its face; Raw substantial problem is that the guy they have choose to be their flag barre is consistently getting rejected buy their paying customer base. When the top of the mountain isn't clean dirt will fall, and has just left a harrowing feel on the entire Raw product.
KEVIN Owens quits last week; which lead to all kinds of speculation that Ownes could be turning face and getting a fresh look, but no he was just brought back with no mention of last week; just to be another guy. While this isn't the worst they have done to Kevin over the last year so its not shocking at all.
