WWE Worst of the Week: Big Show, Sheamus and More
It was another wacky week in in the world of WWE.
We had some truly great moments, like the return of Mark Henry, Jericho vs. Punk and, most importantly, The Miz getting hit in the face by a chair thrown from Brock Lesnar.
We also had a few not-so-great moments, and that's what this list is for.
These moments of the week make you question the sanity of those in charge and change the channel.
Here is WWE's worst of the week from Feb. 3-9.
No. 5: Titus and the Khali
In what is becoming a weekly occurrence here on the Worst of the Week list, The Great Khali makes a special appearance.
One of these days I'm just going to have to rename the column after him.
You have to think that Khali really isn't practicing the same art form known as "professional wrestling" that guys like Ric Flair, Steve Austin and Bruno Sammartino have perfected over the years.
Titus O'Neil has a good physique, a lot of charisma and some upside to move up the card.
Khali is tall. That's it.
Naturally, WWE chose the tall guy to beat the talented one in a squash.
The worst minute of WWE this week may have been Khali and Henry attempting to perform what is commonly known in wrestling as a "brawl."
No. 4: Sheamus Busts out the Impressions
Performing impressions is often considered the lowest form of comedy. Performing bad impressions doesn't even qualify as comedy.
Right now in WWE, they have some good old-fashioned, no nonsense heels in CM Punk, Mark Henry, The Big Show and The Shield.
Their babyface side is a bunch of clowns. John Cena, Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio and even Ryback just love to crack wise and play practical jokes.
Maybe Sheamus should instead be spending his free time working on his impression of being a serious wrestler.
No. 3: You Shouldn't Do That on Television
The Big Show got slimed!
Maybe Nickelodeon can send a nice cease and desist letter to WWE, and we can just stop this feud.
The Big Show and Del Rio feud had a rough week.
First off, The Big Show must have really sensitive shoulders.
On Raw, The Big Show was minding his own business, enjoying a two hour meal in the privacy of his hotel when Del Rio decided to show up.
The two brawled, and Del Rio smacked Show right in the shoulder with a fire extinguisher, knocking him out cold.
Since it wasn't live, a retake would have been nice. Maybe they blew their budget though on the gimmicked table that Del Rio went through.
On SmackDown, things got even worse. The Big Show started chewing out his bus driver while Del Rio hid from the camera.
Yes, he was hiding from us, but all Show had to do was look 10 feet to his left to see Del Rio standing there.
During Show's match, Del Rio must have taken out a ladder and carried a big bucket of orange goo with him on top of a bus.
It's a good thing that The Big Show put his back against the bus, otherwise Del Rio would have looked foolish up there.
No. 2: Shut Your App!
Do you own a smart phone?
Do you know how to use it?
If not, it's comforting to know that WWE is in the business to show us how to use our electronics.
Valuable TV time was taken up on Raw to show the apparently unintelligent WWE Universe a video demonstration on how to access the WWE app on their mobile devices.
Sadly, this isn't the first time that the announcers have given us a tutorial on this.
The company must think that their fan base is composed of a bunch of idiots, or 80-year-olds who just bought a cell phone for the first time so they can call their grandkids.
No. 1: Secondary Title Champs Lose… Again
Right now the U.S. title and the Intercontinental title are about as worthless as TNA's Knockouts Tag Team titles.
It seems that every time these titles change hands, fans get their hopes up that WWE will take the secondary titles seriously again.
It's just not going to happen.
Can WWE just ask themselves what their matches are supposed to accomplish before booking them? We've seen Ryback beat Cesaro multiple times already, so that meant nothing.
Now we're supposed to cheer The Miz getting his hands on Cesaro? Who cares?
We've already seen Cesaro lose time and time again. JBL's comments of "no American has defeated Cesaro for the title" is stupid, because the U.S. champ loses almost every week.
They make the announcers fight a losing battle for making the championships seem prestigious, because any fan who is paying attention knows that isn't true.
There has to be other ways to fill six hours of prime time TV every week than jobbing out two of their title holders.
And no, that's not a call for more fat men dancing on TV.
Well, that's all for this week. Agree? Disagree? What was your worst WWE moment of the week? Sound off below!
