First off, I want you all to understand that I am old enough to understand that the WWE is fake and everything is written by the so-called "creative" team.
By all means, I understand that the refs get paid to look like idiots in front of the whole wide world.
The WWE creative team always likes to make the heel cheat and the face (John Cena, Jeff Hardy, etc.) look like heroes that have been cheated. One way to do this is to have the referee be involved.
What I don't get is why they make it so that the referee is trying to help the heel or something. They always yell in the "heroes" faces and never in the heel's faces. Why? Because the referees are in on it too.
That's not the point, though—the WWE writers are trying to make you hate the heel even more by giving him the advantage with the referee. Here's an example:
The heel punches the face in the corner of the ring so many times that the referee starts pushing him back and starts yelling in his face ("Back off!" "What's your problem?" "Listen to me!"). While this is happening, the heel's posse starts beating the living crap out of the face while the referee isn't looking (Edge heads, Legacy, et cetera).
Then, when the posse finally finishes their dirty work the referee all of a sudden stops and turns around, unaware of any problems.
Now, I guess I could understand if it is your first or second match as a referee but most of the referee's have been in this business for years! And yet they still fall for the dirty tricks that the heels do.
It makes wrestling too fake to be true. I mean, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the referee is faking. Even the most gullible people can't fall for this crap for the hundredth time.
What I am trying to saying is that the creative team has to make the referees not favor anybody. That way, it will be less predictable.
I think the fans would enjoy it more. People don't realize how much of an impact a referee plays in a match, and if he does it correctly, they will at least know that the heel won fairly.
Of course, what are the chances of this happening?
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed. Comments are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
