How many matches do you feel like you saw at least five or 10 times this year? Probably a lot, huh?
There has been a ridiculous amount of matches that, quite simply, happened way too often in 2012.
Alberto Del Rio vs. Zack Ryder, Santino Marella vs. David Otunga, Sheamus vs. Dolph Ziggler, Wade Barrett vs. Randy Orton, Barrett vs. Sheamus, Brodus Clay vs. JTG, The Miz vs. Kofi Kingston.
The WWE made a really bad had habit out of having the same TV matches far too many times. In the case of many of those repeat matches, like Sheamus vs. Ziggler, they were not part of any real extended rivalry.
The repeat matches cause two main problems: They ruin possibly fresh feuds before they could happen, and they bore us to death.
In the case of something like Sheamus vs. Barrett this could have been a World title rivalry down the road, and a really entertaining one at that. But because the match happened quite a few times on TV this year, it won't feel so special anymore.
Here's an idea, WWE: Stop booking the same match over and over again, especially if it's not part of an actual feud/storyline.
