Excessively poking holes in plots, wrestling or otherwise, is a guaranteed way to avoid having fun, but sometimes those holes just glare at you and are impossible to ignore.
Last year, Big Show turned on John Cena and aligned with John Laurinaitis because he was promised an "iron-clad" contract where he couldn't be pushed around by authority figures. Fast forward to Monday and Stephanie McMahon says that if he doesn't compete, he'll be in breach of contract, iron-clad or not.
Somebody needs to fire the lawyer that wrote that contract up.
If a fan were to ignore that flaw in the narrative, they'd still have to question why Big Show was so torn up about having to beat up Daniel Bryan. Bryan and Big Show have been enemies dating back to 2011 and Big Show likes fighting, so what's the big deal?
Triple H wasn't asking him to meet Bryan in a match where he had to beat him with a bat wrapped in barb wire; they could have just competed in a respectful, fair match.
WWE could have provided answers to Big Show's motivations and to his hesitation, but instead provided a dramatic moment built on a hollow foundation.
Two former WWE Superstars weren't fans of the angle either.
