WWE: Why the Conspiracy and Triple H Drama Is the Best Angle in Years
Two Monday nights ago on Raw Supershow, we witnessed WWE employees walk out in protest of COO Triple H. This past Monday, we learned that Triple H will no longer run Raw and John Laurinaitis will be the interim general manager until a permanent one is named.
Fans are left wondering in suspense what will happen next. Many people complain that the WWE fails to keep the interest of fans and whenever they have a good angle going, they find a way to mess it up.
However, the current drama with Triple H and the conspiracy has given the WWE Universe some of the best TV in years.
People are quick to dismiss an angle and don't let it play out. However the conspiracy leaves us wanting more every week. This angle has built up over the past few months and is setting the WWE up for a great Survivor Series. The conspiracy angle has given us the best TV over a stretch of time in a while.
Showtime for Everyone
During the past couple of months during the conspiracy angle and Triple H's tenure as COO, many different superstars have played prominent roles on TV. John Cena and Randy Orton are not the only superstars in the spotlight constantly.
David Otunga has some direction with his character being involved with Vickie Guerrero, Christian, Dolph Ziggler, and Jack Swagger. Wade Barrett is finally relevant again, and Zack Ryder is finally getting his deserved TV time.
Superstars who deserve time in front of the camera are getting the time, and this angle is a result of it. Almost the entire locker room is involved in this conspiracy angle, which gives something different every week on TV.
The Push of CM Punk
This angle is bringing about the mega-push of CM Punk. Even though R-Truth was the first to bring about conspiracy theories in the WWE, CM Punk first did something about it by using his "pipe bomb" to voice his opinion and walk out with the WWE Title. The main aspect of the conspiracy started with "the best in the world."
Right now the focus is is not on Punk himself, which is a good thing. He continues to build a following and gain some sympathy by losing in his attempts for the WWE championship. However, it is only a matter of time before we see the No. 1 merchandise seller in the WWE receive a mega-push and become the face of the WWE. Get ready!
Interest Week After Week
Every week we are left with cliffhanger endings that keep the WWE Universe interested in what will happen next. We all want to continue to see how the conspiracy storyline will develop. Every week some sort of new twist is added to the storyline.
When was the last time there was a major feud such as this that involved the entire WWE locker room? This angle is big and will make for a great Survivor Series in November and great TV for the rest of the year.
During the conspiracy angle, fans have been treated to the return of various WWE talents. To begin with, we saw the return of Triple H, who had not appeared on TV since WrestleMania 27, become COO in July.
We witnessed the shocking return of Kevin Nash at Summerslam and on Raw, we saw Mr. McMahon return as well.
Fans can expect a few more returns during the duration of the conspiracy. We already know The Rock will be returning for Survivor Series. I think we can expect another return when the new permanent general manager is named.
The New General Manager
As we found out on Raw, Triple H is no longer in charge. Vince McMahon returned and informed Triple H that the WWE Board of Directors appointed John Laurinaitis as interim general manager until they find a permanent one.
Mick Foley, anyone?
I think that Laurinaitis ends up running Raw for a little bit, but he will be in way over his head. The Board will end up appointing none other than Mick Foley as the General Manager.
We know it will not be a McMahon because Vince said the Board does not want a member of the McMahon family running Raw; they want a neutral participant.
Foley has experience running a show as he was the commissioner back during the Attitude era. I expect to see him named as the new GM by Survivor Series.
It's always good to have Foley on TV, as he is an interesting character and will only further increase the conspiracy angle.
The conspiracy angle has not failed to give us our share of memorable moments. The scene in Chicago at Money in the Bank when CM Punk won the WWE championship was a sight to see. The match between Punk and John Cena was a classic as well and the Money in the Bank PPV was one of the best all-around PPV's ever.
We have had the firing of Vince McMahon and now Triple H. Mark Henry and Alberto Del Rio have finally won the World titles as well. At Hell in a Cell, we had one of the wildest endings ever to a PPV when R-Truth and the Miz invaded the cell, despite being fired, and attack superstars and cameramen alike.
Then the walkout from a couple of weeks ago will go down in history as one of the most memorable Raw moments ever.
With the conspiracy angle far from over yet, the WWE universe can expect plenty more moments to come. Not to overlook Vengeance, but look for Survivor Series this year to be one of the best in a long time.
Stay for the Ride
The Triple H drama and the WWE conspiracy angle has given WWE fans interesting TV and has been the best angle in years. With the angle far from concluding, we can expect plenty more twists and turns and compelling TV.
We now can tune to see who and when the new general manager will be named. Also what will Triple H have planned now that he is no longer running Raw?
(Hopefully, we can get Jim Ross back on TV as well. That guy must hold some sort of record for being fired.)
Many more great moments will occur that will have fans looking back one day and bask in the greatness of the conspiracy angle.
Fans too often complain about things and always look at the negatives instead of looking at the positives and enjoy what they are given.
The question is, will you be a part of this storyline and enjoy what we are getting, or be left behind and instead decide to complain? The decision is yours.
