God Bless You WWE: "MY" List of Top 10 Good Things Happening In The WWE
Hey guys I am finally back. Ever since I have set foot on B/R I have criticized the WWE to the limits. I have criticized them so much that I actually feel that if Vince ever read my articles or comments he would actually put together the finest team of detectives to track me down and sue me. So I thought of writing an article rather a slide show in which I am going to talk about all the good things which are happening in the WWE of late and how better the product has become thanks to the draft and a few good decisions on the part of the “Creative Team”. Now I am pretty sure that there are going to be many people here who might have really got mad on just looking at the title and would be looking for something to bang their head against. My answer to them is that I agree that WWE is not becoming “heaven” all of a sudden but sure is showing signs of improving. And for all those who are not huge fans of slideshows I would just like to say that I originally planned on a standard article but then considering the fact that my last article was “termed as damn long” so I had to convert this into a slideshow. In this article of mine I have enlisted a set of things which are actually giving us reasons to prevent bashing them up and limiting our comments to just to words of praise for the better shows they are putting up . Also the slides are somewhat in a ranked order because it was tough assigning ranks to them so this is just “MY” personal view as to which is the “best of the best” amongst the latest happenings. Here we go, hope you LIKE it!
Reuniting Carlito and Primo.
This sure is a great thing which is indeed got the smile back on my face and I am pretty sure that you guys are happy about it too.
Ever since they split them up I have asked this question million times, as to “Why?” did they take such a step and honestly speaking would have continued to had they not taken this much wanted step.
This has tons of positives. I mean it will first of all give us “actual” tag teams and not just two random guys forced to form an alliance.
This will surely help in the rebirth of the tag team division. I agree that JeriShow and ShowMiz did bring a lot of respect to the titles but then still we needed proper tag teams and it has provided just that.
Above all it will help in properly utilizing two great talents in the form of Carlito and Primo and keep them away from the league of “Jobbers”.
So all said and done this was a great move and surely deserves an applause and hence surely gives us a reason to say Good Job Vinnie and Creative Guys!
Making Ted DiBiase Worthy Enough for Running a Stable
This to me is actually a “forced good job done situation” rather than an actually planned thing.
I am referring to the injury which Brett DiBiase has sustained thus allowing Ted to get over enough to justify the WWE’s decision of making him run a stable
Now many people have come up with good articles on B/R where in they said that Ted is not ready to run a stable and I got to say that I agree with them.
But with the stable being delayed due to an injury to his brother I have to admit that this is indeed a blessing in disguise which is really helping Ted develop thanks to his evolvement in “sort off” feud with Truth and JoMo.
I mean he is doing a good job and is getting good heat thanks to his good work and also the fact that both Truth and JoMo get a good pop, is allowing him to get over enough with the crowd as a heel hence will prevent the WWE from facing words of sarcasm for this decision of theirs.
I agree that the WWE got lucky here but by involving him in a feud with the “much appreciated” guys like Truth and JoMo they surely did a great job
So the long and short of this is that this too is a good move by the WWE and they deserve to be congratulated on taking the “right decision at the right time”.
Pushing New Stars
This was indeed expected to figure in my list, wasn’t it?
Many-Many people had literally “blasted” the WWE for not creating new main eventers a few months ago and all the WWE has done is paid “heed” to it and now it is indeed pushing many stars and I got to say that they are doing a good job.
I mean they have actually established Swagger pretty well and are well on the road to making him figure in the elite list.
Sheamus too has started to gain my respect and is doing a good job in developing well as a hell and is “finally” getting “actual” heat and not “cheap” heat.
The WWE has been giving a lot of importance to guys like Miz, Kofi, Ted and JoMo as well off late which indeed good for the future of the business.
Establishing new Main Eventers has got many positives
First of all we see new guys in the hunt for the Major Title and we don’t have to deal with seeing the same guys win over and over again.
We get to see new and interesting story lines which is indeed the most important thing to make the product be fun and interesting
Above all by making new guys win, the landscape of the WWE sort of changes and we get to se refreshed things so it is obviously good both for the fans as we enjoy a new look WWE and also it attracts more viewer ship.
So, by pushing new stars, the WWE is indeed doing a great job and it has a lot of plus points for the fans as well, as I explained above. Hence this too is a great decision by the WWE which makes me want to congratulate them on doing the right thing and earning words of praise for me
“Now”, Developing Sheamus Well
Let me just start by saying that I used “NOW” in the title of this slide because finally they are developing Sheamus very well and not screwing it up like they did last time when they made him the WWE Champion.
When the WWE made him a champion literally “Out Of Nowhere”. I was so pissed that I actually thought of questioning the creative for making such a stupid decision.
But now, “Thanks a Ton to HHH” Sheamus is actually getting over enough as a heel. His act of beating Trips before their match at ER made him get even more actual heat and will gradually help him involve into a monster heel.
Then the WWE followed it up by putting him in that match with Randy and Batista on the night of the Draft and he really did a good job in the match as well. Hence justifying his push to the top
Now I agree that this week on RAW we saw both a face and heel side of Sheamus as he interrupted Batista but I think that it makes his quest to become WWE Champion more intense and is making the fans have the mental makeup that he indeed here to stay and is really hell bent on becoming the WWE Champion.
Thus, they are really making Sheamus’ second journey to the top of the Raw roster good and are really pushing him in the best possible way they can so that next time when he becomes a WWE Champion he will generate “actual heel heat” and not “cheap heat”
Honestly speaking this is a really good move because in a way your champion represents you on some level and by having a champ which no one cares about makes no sense and by making him a “real” heel they are ensured that when he becomes the champ, he will not be just booed but still respected and booed.
So, for doing all this and for yet again making the right move the WWE deserves to be praised and hence this slide indeed deserves to be on my slideshow.
Thank God!!! Ensuring that Swagger is not a transitional champion
I have to say that ever since they made Swagger the WHC in just no time without allowing him to develop I feared that they are going to screw this reign and MITB win nice and proper and make it absolutely senseless
But to my surprise they did not make him a transitional champion which of course many of us feared seeing. They have r developed him really-really well and the best part is that they allowed him to win matches cleanly against “OMG Top Dog” like Orton
I know that this slide is pretty similar to the slide about pushing new stars but Swagger has already been pushed and hence I am talking about developing him well so that he reaches that certain level as a champion which guys like Trips, Orton, Cena etc. etc. have attained.
I do believe that Swagger needs to show some personality but still they have actually done a really good job in pushing a guy to the top and making him achieve some sort of respect from the crowd even though a few months ago he was jobbing.
We have always said that we need a new Top Star and the WWE has provided us with that champ and the best part is that they have indeed done a good job in making us actually invest in this guy and not blast him like we blasted Sheamus when he became the champ around 4-5 months ago.
So this move by the WWE to is praise worthy and deserves to be counted amongst the list of good thing happening in the WWE.
Rebirth of The Tag Team Division
This though is quite similar to the reuniting Carlito and Primo but I included them in different slides simply because the “tag team division” in itself is bigger than a single tag team. The reason why I am saying this is because for the first time in a long-long time, both The Tag Team Champions (Hart Dynasty) and the team challenging them (Carlito and Primo) are both “actual” tag teams and not just two random guys brought together. Like I said before, even though the other teams who held the titles for considerable amount of time, did a good job but still tag team matches are enjoyed only when you have actual tag teams you can actually “invest” in as it makes things more intense and hence makes matches better. Also the two guys in an actual team have some sort of chemistry and some special moves which we love to see hence we always love t see that happen. Of late the WWE has really taken good care of the tag team division and also is also nurturing a good team in the form SES so I guess that this too is a smart move made by the WWE for which they deserved an applause.
Bringing Back Respect to the IC Title and Giving Us A Champion We Care About
This too, has to go down as a “forced good job done situation” rather than an actually planned thing.
I mean this thing would not have happened had Drew not got married and taken time off.
Let’s accept it, the WWE made a really bad decision by making him the IC Champion and since then he has degraded its respect and legacy al most every week.
I recently read on Wikipedia that the IC title is the second most important title in the WWE and that we have been provided with some of the greatest matches in history thanks to this title.
About an year ago, guys like Mysterio, Jericho and to a certain extent JoMo and Ziggler helped to get back it’s prominence but then Drew really screwed it up.
But now with Drew taking time off I see it as a blessing in disguise because we will of course have many matches involving this title and also we are sure to get a feud for this title as well because whenever there is a new champion he sure defends his title on a regular basis at least for the first one or two months.
Hence it will help bring back importance of this “forgotten” Title.
Also as we all know, that Christian and Kofi are going to fight for the title next week, hence we are ensured of the fact that we will see one of these two guys as champion whom we actually care about and respect.
So, thanks to Drew and also thanks to the WWE we will finally see the IC Title return to prominence and get a champ we actually give a damn about, which is all we wanted to see about the IC Title.
Edge vs. Orton feud
I have to admit that this is by far one of the best story lines which we have seen since the Draft has taken place.
We all knew that the Draft would provide for new story lines but none of us could have imagined that we were going to be literally “treated” by this intense and hot feud.
I mean I myself have many times said that their should always be a really intense, long and personal story line taking place and this provides us with just that.
This is sure to be intense thanks to the fact that Orton is “Red Hot” as a face right now while Edge on the other hand is really playing the role of the “Ultimate Opportunist” heel really well and these two guys can really cut great promos.
This is going to be a personal story line because we have a history between the both of them to drop on as well so we sure can expect things to be heated up especially when the use references from history and incorporate them in their feuds well enough
Also this promises to be a long rivalry, now I am sure about this because I have heard that these two along with Cena and Sheamus will fight for the WWE Title at Fatal 4-way PPV.
So if either if them wins then are going to see this continuing as one of them will look to beat the other guy to retain his title and even if they don’t then they will fight and play the “blame game” for each others loss.
Hence we can predict this to be a long, personal, intense and heated story line which we have been craving for and we are finally going to get it.
Thus by providing us with such a story line which fulfills many of our needs we all have to indeed thank the WWE for doing so as they put in the best two guys possible in their which will make us continue to watch RAW even though we love SD way more than the “so called” flag ship show.
All we can say is
Thank You Edge
Thank you Randy
For making Raw "watchable"
Finally allowing Christian the Chance to Shine by Drafting Him to SD
Woah! This surely has to be the best thing which surely will make many guys say “God Bless You WWE”.
Now, first of all I would like to say that even though like I said that these slides are “some what” ranked I really had a tough task deciding between this one and the previous one
Even though I feel that this is something which we will see in the future but I have to admit that being a supporter of CC myself I had to save the best for the last
The idea of drafting him to SD indeed the best move.
I mean Christian has the whole stage set up for him. He is currently wrestling on a brand where there is no Cena, Trips, Orton, Jericho or Edge who literally “hog” all the limelight and also the other important guys like Taker, Punk etc. are injured and occupied in other feuds etc.
Also all the other young guys still need a lot of nurturing. Hence it is just a matter of time before Chrsitian gets “rocketed” into the main event scene.
Now I am sure I need not tell you that how important and how good it will be to see him as WHC.
We are going to see tons of new, never seen before rivalries, we are sure to see many great feuds for the top prize, SD which is already the far superior brand will become insane and above all we will see a new era in the WWE which we will all love.
So, That’s “MY” list things which they WWE are doing to make us fans totally fall in love them again and making us say “God Bless You WWE”
I have to say that their might be a few more good things happening which I might have skipped but then I wrote down as many as I could and that’s why I said that it is “MY” List so that you people don’t bash me up if I forget something.
So, how did you like my slideshow? Did you enjoy it or not? Please do let me know and comment for sure. I will be happy to deal with all comments whether positive or negative for I Am D Real Deal!!!
BTW-Do check out my honorable mentions list
Here are a few Honorable Mentions, now they are here because I feel that they are not quite as huge as the other ones but still I feel that they were good moves by the WWE
Turning Edge Heel- I feel that this has opened the gate for better story lines and also I feel that we can get more ‘controversial and edgy” elements on RAW because of what Edge had to say last week.
New Story lines- This too is due to the draft. I feel that we are going to see a few good feuds thanks the good moves they made in the draft and I am sure that they are going to make full use of it
Longer Major Title Reigns (Sort off) - Now this is something which might not be a huge reason to thank the WWE for but then considering the fact that last year al most all the reigns were short we are finally seeing a few longer reigns and also both Swagger and Cena are expected to be champs at least till Fatal 4-way due to obvious reasons so we can be rest assured that even though we are not sure as to how long are these reigns going to continue but still they are going to be considered descent enough.
Sort of birth of Cody Rhodes-This too is a thing which has "unintentionally" paid off for the WWE thanks to him being drafted to SD. He has put up two good matches in the last two weeks and hence we might see him be pushed into the main event scene really soon so I see this as a positive point.
BTW I would like to thank my friend and fellow writer here on B/R, Linwood Keith as it was his opinion which I liked and hence included it in my honorable mentions list
That’s it!!! End of my slide show. Hope you guys enjoyed it!!! And again all types of feed back accepted!!!
