Tonight we saw the pairing of two wrestlers that no one wanted to see together, but WWE decided to to give it to us anyway.
After weeks of wasting the time of millions of fans around the world, WWE had John Cena and AJ make out on live TV.
It was kind of gross, but more importantly it was a mistake.
The entire story has been pointless, as AJ was no longer in a power position within the company. They were two consenting adults, so even if something had happened between them, it shouldn’t have mattered.
But the idiocy of the past few weeks isn’t the only thing wrong with this.
AJ started to become popular during the Daniel Bryan/CM Punk/Kane story line, but then also lost a lot of that popularity during her run as the GM of Raw.
It was time to get her back on track. It was time to go back to being crazy!
Instead, she’s been involved in a terrible feud with Vickie that most likely won’t end in a match between the two.
WWE has now taken another turn with her, and paired her with WWE's poster boy John Cena. The company could potentially now alienate the remaining AJ Lee fans, as it's doubtful that her male fans would want to see her with Cena.
So why put them together?
There’s no denying that a lot of women also love Cena, but do they really want to see him in a relationship either?
Wouldn’t they rather be fantasizing about him, and at least be able to pretend they have a chance with him instead?
Cena's other big fan group is children, and it's doubtful that there are many eight- to 12-year-olds out there who were desperately hoping that Cena and AJ would get together.
WWE just doesn't have a great history with top faces in a relationship storyline (with the exception of Randy Savage) to give any hope that this will become compelling television.
The Rock and Trish Stratus love story was quickly abandoned, Angle and Stephanie didn't have a satisfying conclusion, Sara wasn't a great addition to Undertaker's act, and Austin never had an on-air love interest while he was a face (as a heel he was aligned with Debra).
WWE may love their soap opera story lines, but I don't see this one ending well. It seems there are much easier ways to get to Ziggler vs. Cena without all of these distractions.
That's all for this week. Agree? Disagree? Did anything else on the show annoy you? Sound off below!
