Since when did WWE become a bad version of a horror movie? Two out of the three top programs in the company over the past few months has centered around horror movie-type segments and bad acting.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of The Wyatt Family in particular, and there’s always room for one of those type of characters, or in this case factions, in the mix. To have two out of the three top programs centered around horror-movie type characters seems like a bit of overkill to me.
I think the direction of The Wyatt Family as of late hasn’t been as good as it once was. The “Little Johnny” portion of the finish of Sunday’s steel cage match between Bray Wyatt and John Cena was nothing short of ridiculous. Like a million horror movies, there was a young kid who was possessed.
A lot of that was “Super Cena” resurfacing. After many failed attempts to escape the match due to outside interference from Luke Harper and Erick Rowan, which is retarded considering the fact that the whole point of a steel cage match is to eliminate the possibility of outside interference, the only way Cena could possibly lose was to angle out of the situation. A little kid freaks him out, allowing Wyatt to get out of there and get the victory.
Then we’ve got the situation with Kane. On Monday’s RAW, that angle reached ridiculous levels. The mask hanging on the wall freaking out Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion running like a scared child when thinking Kane might be after him, etc. I get the idea, which is they are trying to establish Kane as a monster that can’t be controlled, and in having Bryan run and fear him, it strengthens Kane’s status as a legitimate top tier act, but even more so, I think it hurts Bryan. The world champion should not be running away from anyone, especially a baby face world champion.
Hopefully WWE Payback comes and goes on June 1st and we can move on and get some new story lines in the mix, some different characters on top, and stop having shows each week that heavily focus on horror movie type segments. I’m not a fan of horror movies by any means. In fact, I can’t stand them. To me, they’re pretty much all the same — and many of them are downright corny. None are as corny as what I’ve been watching on my weekly pro wrestling television programs. I’ve tolerated it up to this point, but if this extends past Payback, I might lose my freaking mind.
Boy oh boy, how I miss the Attitude Era. And don’t give me any of that crap about The Ministry, because even as a teenager, I couldn’t stand a lot of that crap either.
