Title: My Weekly Rants 05/9 - 09/9 2011|
Hey guys, so another week, another blog. Again this week more stuff of interest happening outside the ring than inside it, so let’s get started.
Nash, ‘H’ & Punk (Again!)
Ok these opening segments are almost becoming the norm for Raw and that in itself is getting a bit annoying but the main problem I have with these segments is the constant decision to let Nash try and match Punk on the mic. It’s not working and it’s never gonna work! I also don’t like the way it’s turned out that Nash sent the text himself. That’s a crappy explanation, I was sure it would be Laurinaitis that gave the order. But anyways Nash has now been ‘fired’ so we’ll see him a NOC for sure. One other thing that annoyed me was after Nash was future endeavoured on WWE.com why did he talk about financial terms on his Twitter account. Where does that random comment fit into the storyline!?
I’m also not that happy about the added stipulations to the ‘H’ vs Punk match at NOC. I’m happy that it is now a No DQ match but with the stipulation that if ‘H’ loses he will have to resign as COO makes me think that ‘H’ will get the victory and to me that undermines Punk if he is beaten by a guy who hasn’t had a match since WM27.
Now this could have gone in the Smackdown section but I decided to put it in here. I will put this in the simplest terms I can. Get Michael Cole off commentary now! He will be great as a manager but I cannot stand him constantly shouting about the other commentators or things that are not relevant to the match at the time. OK I don’t mind another match being hyped but there are times when the current match in the ring is not even mentioned once. There was a point during Raw this week when JR managed to mention one move performed in the ring during a match then Cole belittled him for the next 5 minutes! I understand that VKM is feeding a lot of this stuff to Cole and I often wonder if this is VKM’s way of criticising people or matches he doesn’t like. Either way this has to stop!
OK the only problem I have with this is the ending of Smackdown. Now the way I understood it was that both Orton and Henry were bound by a No Contact rule so why did that seem to change to a No Interference rule that only applied during their respective matches?! Who knows, not I! .
This is something that has been annoying me for a while and it’s not Matt Striker himself, though he can be pretty annoying, it’s the way he dresses. Now I know that might seem like a weird problem but seriously who is letting him do interviews dressed like that! He looks like he just come from a bar on a Friday night! To me interviewers should be in a suit when doing interviews not what they think ‘looks good’.
On a little side note, I would like to put forward the idea of having Beth Phoenix sitting on the ring steps every week for every match on every show haha!
OK Angle was in my blog for last week and he’s managed to get in it again this week. I’m thinking he might need his own section soon! My problem this week is that Angle seems to think we’re all stupid. Does he honestly expect us to believe he wasn’t under the influence something when he was arrested last week? C’mon Kurt! Man the fuck up and admit you have fucked up again! Now none of us can say we haven’t made a mistake at one point in the past but some us and yourself some respect and admit it. I said it last week with regards to Matt Hardy that if Kurt does not address these issues then his career will end like a damp squib and not with a bang like it should.
Well obviously Jeff Hardy has seen me having a rant about Matt and decide it was his turn to piss me off this week! 2 main issues with Jeff this week, firstly his sentence of 10 days. 10 days?! They guy was busted with enough drugs to keep a pharmaceutical company stocked for a month! He was arrested for possession with the intent to supply and because he puts in a plea bargain he walks away with 10 days! I didn’t realise he had the same lawyer as Lindsay Lohan but obviously he must have! The second problem I have with him is being given the final segment on this week’s edition of Impact. Now if I’m on the TNA roster I am gonna be seriously pissed off if a guy who fucked up the main event of a PPV and then walks back into the company at all let alone is given a prime spot on the show! Many people are saying he should be given one more chance. Sorry but he has been given numerous chances and he has fucked them each and every time! I believe in fact I know! Jeff will not finish his probation period! End of story!
On another side not about Matt Hardy, I said last week that I was doubtful he would keep his word about not wrestling full time. He said this week on his Twitter that he has seen a surgeon and thinks may not be as bad as they seemed. Surprise surprise!
Well that wraps up this week’s blog. I hope you think I made some valid point and feel free to give your own views and feedback.
