R-Truth wasn't lying when he said a conspiracy was working against him and Miz.
Things haven't gone their way at all the past year or two. Well, Miz was WWE Champion, but not a very credible one, and he only got that chance by winning Money in the Bank, not because people in charge recognized him as such. And even though there isn't any concrete proof to show the conspiracy exists, circumstantial evidence is pretty abundant to suggest R-Truth's claims have serious merit.
Thus, why did Morrison need to challenge R-Truth for his spot in the triple threat cage match at Extreme Rules? Just because he lost the gauntlet match the week before? That's not particularly becoming of an honorable, stand-up individual, or a face that people want to root for.
And then calling out that Truth smokes? So what?
I consider myself "not-so-straightedge", in that I've never done drugs, I've never smoked, and although I enjoy an occasional Coors Light or Smirnoff Ice, I've never been drunk. I certainly don't think that it's okay for people to abuse substances in order to feel better or enhance their life. However, I have known people who smoke that were generally good people at heart.
Clearly, from what we see of Truth's change in attitude on the particular night in this video, Truth might not be entirely good-hearted, however the fact that he smokes doesn't inherently make him a bad person.
So again, why did Morrison feel the need to take Truth's spot? Maybe Morrison has been in on this plot all along.
As many know, my belief is that John Cena's success and protection has been paramount to the conspirators. Rock got in the way of John Cena acquiring the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania, and at Extreme Rules, Cena faced even greater odds in a cage. Although, good news for the bad guys, Rock would be nowhere in sight.
The Anonymous Raw GM was the one who made the gauntlet match, and when Miz and Alex Riley screwed up the finish, it was the Anonymous Raw GM that declared that both Cena AND R-Truth would be placed into the match.
Of course, at that point, we hadn't a clue about any conspiracies being in place. Just that it was awful funny at the time that Truth had found himself in a WWE Championship match, thanks to a boss that only made him/herself known through emails read by Michael Cole.
One week later, Truth celebrates his victory and Morrison, a guy who had failed at capturing world championships repeatedly, challenges Truth for his position and pulls out a surprise victory. Some could speculate that if Truth couldn't beat Morrison that night, then maybe he didn't deserve to be in the triple threat cage match at all.
Then again, he was taken off guard and agreed to an impromptu match. That's not entirely fair either. And if Morrison is willing to hold back and be the fall guy so that Cena can regain the title? That would make Cena's win a lot easier.
It would be sad to watch Morrison turn heel and be revealed as a key member of the conspiracy to keep John Cena in the spotlight, but what it would do to Awesome Truth's rep would be fantastic. Not to mention Morrison would still get a lot more spotlight being associated with the powerful conspirators.
All in all, a win-win for everyone.
