What's going on guys? After the positive response to my first artice: "The Greatest WWE Superstar Poses of All Time", I've decided to post some fun facts and tidbits you've probably never heard of, In addition to that, I'm posting my opinions about the current WWE product that really annoy me and I want to hear your opinions as well:
Did You Know?
-Mark Henry is the only African American wrestler to attempt to end The Undertaker's Wrestlemania undefeated streak.
-The Rock is the only WWE superstar (past or present) to have attended the Academy Awards. (For him to attend the grandest stage in film, and sports-entertainment is a huge accomplishment.)
-Triple H was one Wrestlemania away from tying Bret Hart's record for most consecutive Wrestlemania appearances (12), however, his quad injury in 2007 prevented him doing that as he was unable to compete at Wrestlemania 23.
-Lawrence Taylor and Mr. T are the only individuals who were NOT wrestlers to main event Wrestlemanias 11 and 1 respectively.
-Many Wrestlemanias have left us happy to see the show end with our favorite babyface walk out as champion, very few Wrestlemanias have left us mad or dissappointed to watch the most hated heel walk out as champion, however, the only Wrestlemania to end on a sad note was watching HBK walk up the aisle for the last time at Wrestlemania XXVI.
-As a fun side note, I live in Orlando and I attended Wrestlemania XXIV and I read online about how a few of the wrestlers belongings were stolen backstage. This does not surprise me at all because the area in which the Citrus Bowl is located is a very bad, crime-ridden area and the stadium itself is very old which came as a surprise to me that they actually held the event there.
And now, what annoys me about the current WWE product:
-I hated how David Otunga was trying so hard to copy The Rock's mannerisms on Raw last Monday. David please, don't even try to compare yourself to the great one.
-If I hear Michael Cole say; "You are watching the longest running weekly episodic television show in history" one more time, my head will explode.
-Are they trying to make Jack Swagger like Jericho now with the monotone voice and the suit? Come on creative staff, this guy has charisma, let him utilize it.
-"Me name's Sheamus, I am the DOBLA DOBLA E champion!" I'm having a hard time seeing anything in this guy. Enough said.
-Christian is 36 years old!(good thing he doesn't look like it.) He's proven that he's main event material. He was so over with the crowd in 2005. Now, please give him his time to shine!
-NXT is boring! I think it should be somewhere along the lines of The Ultimate Fighter.
-Why the hell was the Edge-Jericho feud leading up to Wrestlemania based around Edge's finishing move? And yet, it's still going on.
-"The rock band without instruments?" In addition to that very chessy tagline, Heath Slater is too cocky, tries way too hard and that head shaking thing is stupid.
Thanks for reading guys!
