There are so many aspects of this story that are so completely stupid, and counterproductive in every possible way to making money, that it's hard to know where to begin.
After ending AJ’s run as a GM (which damaged her character), it was time to get her back on track.
It was time to be crazier than a Heidenrich, but instead she has a new love interest.
What fan wants to see AJ and John Cena together? Where is this coming from? Why does Cena suddenly protect her like he's her big brother?
Sure, she could always turn heel on Cena, except where is the money in that? She's not going to wrestle him in a match.
Vickie vs. AJ doesn't sound too appealing either.
Every one of these segments on the show was just lousy and hard to sit through. And every one of the characters is at fault:
-AJ Lee doesn't want to be a wrestler or a fighter. No, she wants to be a performer. You see, she doesn't want us to think what she's doing is real; she just wants to entertain us!
-While she's great at being a psycho, crazy chick, she is lousy at showing other emotions. WWE shouldn't put her in the position to fake cry every week if she can't pull it off.
-Apparently everybody was supposed to know that Cena asking out AJ was a joke.
So a single guy asking out an attractive woman to dinner is supposed to be funny? I don't get it. What's the punch line?
-Cena also keeps insisting that their dinner was a business meeting.
Since the role of what the General Manager actually does is a bit of a mystery, we're left to guess at what kind of business she could help Cena with.
What would they have even talked about? New John Cena arm bands? A Fruity Pebbles commercial? A jort shortage?
-Why is Vickie still obsessed with exposing AJ?
Their positions in power have reversed, and Vickie had the chance to fire her. Instead, she backed out on her demands and kept her anyway for some reason.
So the story should theoretically have been over, but it's continuing.
What does it matter now if Cena and AJ hooked up? Can someone in WWE creative please explain that?
And why doesn't any babyface bring up Vickie's hypocrisy? What about her relationships with Dolph Ziggler, Edge and Eric Escobar? Why has nobody mentioned that?
Right now, it's just too much to think about.
Guess we'll have to wait until Raw for the wacky adventures of AJ/Cena/Vickie to continue, and maybe find some answers.
Or more likely, we'll just have a bunch more questions that are never explained to satisfaction, while this bad soap opera story continues to turn off more fans until it mercifully ends.
Whew. That's all for this week. That was the longest rant yet in this series. Time to go lay down.
