Hello Bleacher Report, it's good to write to the wonderful wrestling community right here on Bleacher Report. Anyway, Wrestlemania's come and gone, the greatest wrestler in the wrestling/sports-entertainment industry has retired. Thank you Shawn for your great matches, and excellent contribution to the company, have a good break and spend some time with your kids, you've earned it trooper.
Now that the pleasantries are over, on to one of the undercard matches of Wrestlemania 26, and the effect it's having on 3 superstars.
Now, back in the time when a lot of wrestling reporters and writers expected Ted Dibiasie to turn face and win the WWE Championship defeating Randy Orton at Wrestlemania, It didn't seem to happen. Just because Teddy is a "movie star" on one of the worst sequels on one of the worst movies of all time, doesn't mean he'll get the championship handed on a platter to his inexperienced, overrated hands at once.
Anyway, back to the nearer past, Wrestlemania 26, Randy Orton kicked Cody Rhodes back into obscurity and RKO'd Teddy for the win. What's interesting to note is the effect Cody and Teddys first big Wrestlemania will have on the rest of their careers.
Teddy, the once golden boy of many bleacher reporters eyes was in a match with christian in a legends lumberjack match this past Raw. He got angry at poor, old daddy, and he's lucky daddy didn't preach a sermon. But Teddy seems like he's still getting match time, which is good. I'm sure he'll be a decent upper midcarder, in 3 years when he learns to cut decent promos by himself.
Cody Rhodes, the less talented, less loved one yet still able to perform better in the ring. Hopefully Cody is able to do something, because I always felt his gimmick is plain "like eating mashed potatoes".
That's a big problem I find with the WWE now days, everybody seems the same. Lets debut a new wrestler with a first name and a last name, give them generic music and let them flop. WWE wrestlers needs gimmicks, or at least something to distinguish the Trent Baretta from that other guy in his tagteam, but that's another article. Writing back into relevance...
Randy Orton, now this guy used Wrestlemania as almost his official heel-tweener/face turn. As always, WWE could just chuck RKO back into the main event, but apparently everybody is bored with Cena vs RKO 500.
Now, Cena will usually be in the ME(main event) because Cena is the cash cow of WWE, if we want RKO to get into the ME again, it'll probably have to inevitably be Cena vs RKO 500. Once again a point for another article, writing back into relevance
Randy Orton is now free of the dead weight of the highly anticipated and poorly received Legacy vs Randy Orton feud. Randy can upper midcard with HHH, or go and wrestle superman or even be traded.
Unfortunately, none of these wrestlers really got anything out of Legacy, maybe Ted and Cody got the experience from being around RKO etc etc, well one year, no title and barely any focus on Cody and Ted is all they got. That and a decent fued with D-X. Lets hope they have a future in this industry, but I'm sure they will have one at TNA.
