WWE Fans Can Expect Bland Shows Until the 1,000th Episode
The WWE Universe is expecting a gala night on July 23 when Raw celebrates its 1000th episode. Those three hours will show exactly why Monday nights have become synonymous with professional wrestling, and the program will be a great trip down memory lane.
Therefore it is a real shame that the proceeding four weeks to this momentous occasion may go down as some of the blandest television in the show's existence.
The WWE has given everyone a clear indication that the 1000th episode is a special occasion that cannot and will not be hindered by storylines that make celebrating the event difficult.
Every champion in the company is a face and the biggest heel in the company, Mr John Laurinaitis, has now been removed from television.
Even those closely associated with "Big Johnny" withdrew their support, with Big Show and David Otunga leaving Laurinaitis to face the wrath of John Cena on his own. Cena's subsequent victory has started the feel good atmosphere that the WWE will want to maintain until their landmark episode.
Of course, there will be the odd heel to challenge the faces, but expect them to be mostly dominated as the weeks go by. Alberto Del Rio, who is bound to be Sheamus' opponent at Money In The Bank, was the only heel victor on the 6/18 episode of Raw and the pattern of singular heel victories is likely to continue.
The one instance where this pattern may be upset is when a former heel GM is in charge, but that could also be the chance for one of the triumvirate of super-faces (John Cena, CM Punk and Sheamus) to score a mighty victory against the odds.
Otherwise the shows will consist of faces winning consistently, heels looking strong in brawls but ultimately coming up short in matches, and random former faces of the WWE making guest appearances.
This procession will last up to the 1000th show where everyone will celebrate together. Even the heels, especially popular ones like Dolph Ziggler and Daniel Bryan, may get to break kayfabe and enjoy the moment as well.
The decision to create a positive atmosphere for WWE's important night is completely understandable, but the decision to go to a face dominant show happened too early. Fans will be bored with the processional nature of the programming before the landmark episode rolls around, and the backlash will be felt in the last couple of weeks before the 1000th show.
The run in will not take any shine of the historical show, but a hot storyline going into the event would have been a better way to excite the fans.
