What Has Happened to Comedy in the WWE?

Paul BentleyContributor IFebruary 21, 2009

Here I am once again, Paul Bentley (aka Gene Simmons), reporting to you with another unique article. Tell me what you think.

You know what I think—I have been watching WWE very carefully of late, and there is one thing that has been puzzling me—where has the comedy been?

What I mean by that is, where are DX's usual antics or someone making fun of another person or maybe another great skit?

A great way to introduce some fresh comedy to the WWE would be to have Triumph the Insult Comic Dog as part of the show. Let him interview some of the superstars and divas backstage, throwing in a few insults.

That could be alot of fun.

I think it would be nice to have something like that on a more regular basis because it seems to have slowed down a bit with the recent story lines that the WWE has been showing.

The only thing that seems to have any kind of comedy involved appears to be John Morrison and The Miz with "The Dirt Sheet Show"—and that's about it as far as I can tell.

If they think that Santino acting like a complete idiot is entertainment, then give me a break!

Another thing that I have also noticed is when you log on to WWE.com and you view the active superstars in the rosters on the shows, its got all of them listed but it doesn't show them every week, but rather maybe every few weeks. But still they remain on the roster.

For example, I like the Boogieman, but I hardly have a chance to see him. At least he is entertaining, so if they still have them all on the roster then they should show him a bit more.

The WWE draft is just around the corner, but what will happen over the WWE Championship and the World Heavyweight Championship, I dont think this is a good thing. Raw does not have a world title now because of Edge, so now both of these championship are on Smackdown.

Personally, I don't think he should have been allowed to complete in Raw's Elimination Chamber match to win the title because he had just lost his WWE Championship in Smackdown's chamber match.

He wasn't even scheduled for Raw's chamber match, so I don't think that should have been allowed. It makes me wonder if the computer that randomly selects the superstars to be drafted will be fair in deciding who gets picked.

I remember when Undertaker was recovering from an injury and was not eligible for the draft so he was able to remain on Smackdown. That should be the same for Batista since he is still out of action for the time being.

You may all remember when he received a injury at the hands of Randy Orton.
