Some Good, Some Bad: Three WWE Feuds That Caught My Eye This Year!
Every year there are those feuds that catch a person's attention, whether it is because the feud is fantastic or because the feud is really bad.
There were a few this year in my opinion which really caught my eye. Three feuds really stand out though. Two stand out because of how amazing they are and the other stands out because of how amazingly bad it was.
Here I will tell you which two feuds caught my eye for the good reasons and which caught it for the bad.
Jeff Hardy vs. CM Punk (Over World Heavyweight Championship)
This was indeed a must-see feud. I guess Jeff Hardy wanted to finish off his career in the WWE on a good note. Oh, and what an unforgettable career it was. Anyway.
This all started at the WWE PPV, Extreme Rules. It was a match between the current World Heayvweight Champion, Edge and the No. 1 contender, Jeff Hardy.
Jeff Hardy was on top of the ladder reaching for Edge's gold looking to capture his first World Heavyweight Championship and he did.
Jeff Hardy realized a dream that night, but that dream would soon turn into a nightmare.
As Jeff Hardy was celebrating he heard the music of none other than CM Punk. He ran out, cashing in Money In The Bank, and stole the title.
This would also mark a slow yet great heel turn for CM Punk. And let me just say that he is one great heel.
At The Bash, CM Punk managed to retain his title in a controversial way. He would then walk around with an eye injury and making excuses for anything that might happen using the eye.
At Night of Champions, there was a fight of champions when CM Punk faced off against Jeff Hardy for the World Title.
Despite many believing that it would be his last match Hardy signed an extension which saw his contract extend for about one more month.
With this, Hardy also got a World Title reign as he captured the title at Night of Champions.
The feud would continue until another epic encounter at SummerSlam, the World Heavyweight Champion, Jeff Hardy faced CM Punk for the title in a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs (TLC) match.
Despite a great attempt from Jeff, CM Punk recaptured his World Title.
Jeff Hardy was soon in for his last match in the WWE for the time being. He faced CM Punk in a Steel Cage, Loser Leaves Town Match. The winner of that match would go on to face Taker at Breaking Point.
CM Punk would obviously retain and keep the title and move on to face Taker at Breaking Point.
As for Hardy he would say his final good bye to the crowd before walking off in honour, which was interrupted by Punk hitting him from behind with the title belt. Poor Jeff.
This feud really played in to why SmackDown is the "A" show. What also played in was Raw's terrible performances, but a great feud like this really helped put them over the top.
As for Jeff we will miss you my man, or at least I will.
Chris Jericho vs. Rey Mysterio (Over the IC Championship)
It doesn't matter over what belt the feud is: to be good it just happens. Good feuds happen and bad feuds happen, it's just simple.
Plus when you have a guy like Chris Jericho in the feud, you know you're gonna get a good one.
In a process of reviving the Intercontinental Championship, the WWE decide they were going to have Chris Jericho and Rey Mysterio feud over it.
WWE, smart move. This feud would prove to be nothing less than stellar. The matches were amazing. The mic skills (especially Chris') were good, and the level of charisma was outstanding.
This all started with the 2009 WWE Draft. In this draft you had both Chris Jericho and Rey Mysterio go to SmackDown(with Jericho going to SmackDown being the biggest pick of the night of course).
On SmackDown, these two along with Kane and Jeff Hardy would compete for a contendership for Edge's title. Hardy won so that left Chris and Rey for a feud of their own.
Jericho would complain to Teddy over and over again about how he is being treated unfairly. Rey Mysterio would then move in and tell Chris to stop acting like a baby. This would spark the feud.
Their first meeting was at Judgment Day with Rey as champion and Chris as challenger. Chris would go on about how Rey is suppose to be a hero to kids, but that hero hides behind a mask.
So he promised to remove that mask for Judgment Day. Now everyone knows that for a Luchador to be unmasked is a big shame to him.
So Rey wouldn't let it happen. He would beat Jericho, retain his title, and keep his mask on.
However, the outcome for Extreme Rules was different. Chris Jericho would face Rey Mysterio for the title once again and just like the first time promised to unmask Rey. He did just that as Chris unmasked Rey while beating him, took his title, along with his pride.
Rey would use his rematch clause for the Bash as once again these two faced off continuing this epic feud. In this match Chris did in fact unmask Rey Mysterio, but Rey was wearing two masks so Chris was set up. Rey won that match, got the title back, and restored his pride.
These two would meet one more time for the title on en episode of SmackDown. Current Unified Tag Team Champion, Chris Jericho face Rey Mysterio for the title.
Chris would lose the match, but would still receive satisfaction after beating Rey up together with his partner, Edge. Then Ziggler came in letting Rey know who is next in line for the title.
This was indeed a stellar feud. Again it played into SmackDown being the best brand at the time.
I pray that this Sunday when Chris and Rey meet in the ring in the tag match that they will make it look as good as they made this feud look.
Chavo Guerrero vs. Hornswoggle (No Title involved)
Really? I mean really WWE? This is the best you can come up with?
This feud was without a doubt pathetic! Absolutely pathetic. You would have a guy like Chavo Guerrero come out every night and let a midget beat him.
WWE, we know you have to entertain the kids, but this is too much. Chavo should be competing over the US title, not jobbing to the midget that should have been fired ages ago.
When we saw Evan Bourne join the feud we thought that maybe they would move on to a Bourne vs. Chavo feud. Instead they just have Bourne help him ever night, now that's just pathetic.
To have one talented superstar like Chavo be humiliated by Hornswoggle is one thing, but to have a guy with Evan's talent help Hornswoggle is a whole new level of pathetic.
To this very day you still have Chavo feuding with that little leprechaun. Luckily they have gottan Evan Bourne out of that feud at least. They moved him to the mid card where he doesn't have to save a midget's life.
Chavo Guerrero had to freaking dress up like a cow for pete's sake. That's torture. I pray one day WWE gets rid of Hornswoggle, I really do.
I am also hoping that Chavo will one day get the respect he deserves. The man has potential, but they just don't let him use it.
This feud really played into why Raw has lost its spot as the top show ,because this really was a channel changer.
