By now you all know what happen last night at the Elimanation Chamber in the mainevent for Smackdown. Shawn Michaels interfered and helped Chris Jericho score the victor over the Undertaker. I am not disputing the results of Chris Jericho winning, however I do disagree what the WWE is doing by setting up another Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels part II.
To start I will go back to one elimanation early in the same Chamber match and look at a rising star, John Morrison. He put on a great match and had many moments that kept the match flowing and maintain proper pace. Where does the mistake on the WWE part comes in: they should have made Shawn Michaels sweet chin Morrison not Taker.
Why? John Morrison stock is at a all-time high and he has a DVD that is coming out. The WWE could have shaped this into Michaels being jealous of John Morrison future opportunities and that is the reason for the attack. This rivalary could have also played into the idea of Shawn Michaels being an unknown factor and a loose cannon.
A match between these two at Wrestlemanina could have been epic and at the same time laid a foundation for Morrison and a future title run without him having to compete in MITB, if there is one at this Wrestlemania. That opportunity could have been given to a Shelton Benjamin or Christian, resulting in two guys being pushed instead of one.
John Morrison and Shawn Michaels have had their run ins when Morrison tag with The Miz and when Shawn was apart of DX. The mini-fued had its moments but John Morrison is arguebly more over as a face now than he was as a heel back then. Although many of you guys like him as a heel better than a face.
If the Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels match does not go over well, the WWE can look back at this Chamber match at the misopportunity and see the fueds that could have been. The fact is Undertaker nor Shawn Michaels needs to have another match against each other. The classic we saw last year was good enough.
Although they both delivered last year at Wrestlemania having Taker fued with a Kofi Kingston, Ezekiel Jackson, Jack Swagger, or Sheamus will mostly likely have the same effect as Shawn Michaels vs Undertaker part II.
