A couple complaints aka small criticisms:
I don't think Bo Dallas deserves a match on WM just debuting just a month ago on TV. I was shocked when that wasn't on the EC card. Wade Barrett should defend the title in a 6 pack challenge or something like that or face and beat a guy like Jericho or Big Show with his knockout elbow would put him over. He needs a big win.
you got a stupid 6 man tag match....why no Shield if you are going to do that?
after all the complaining about wanting the tag titles to have prestige and mean something....you don't have the tag titles defended on the biggest stage of them all? Shame on anyone who doesn't have tag titles defended at WM.
I think it would be better for either Barrett or Cesaro to face and beat Big Show at WM with their finishers on the biggest stage of them all than beating guys like R-Truth who they just got done beating back in December.
It's funny, we're just 5 weeks away from Mania - and I still don't know how 60% of the card will shape up. I think this is pretty solid here, but I see it shaping up a little differently:
1. Ryback vs Jericho would be a suprise for me. I'm still hoping for Jericho vs Ziggler. I'd also really like to see Ryback vs Sheamus. That said, one would need to turn heel - and I'd like either one to do so.
2. Mark Henry needs a singles match, against anyone but Khali. He'd be a cool guy for Ryback to fight too. I think Orton might get his hands on him. Clearly I can't make up my mind, and I don't know if the WWE can either.
3. As I type this, Orton Sheamus Jericho and Ryback are all guys who could be used against The Shield. They are the best thing going in the WWE right now, I don't know how they can NOT have a match at Mania.
4. Bo Dallas better not get a Mania slot. I've already mentioned him in a few scenarios, but I think Sheamus vs Wade Barrett, in an Irish vs English (?) themed feud for the IC today would be a fun format at big international stage like Mania.
Only complaint... No Shield?
It is kinda weirdly...obvious? I don't know, it's just like completely plain with a big WWE logo and nothing else. I doubt it'll have any side plates except WWE ones afterwards as only a handful of people could actually have some relateable side plate. I mean your pretty much screwed for life out of the belt cause you don't have a usable image to use to fit, lol. (Not to mention, in that sense, you may as well have WWE logos on the side, and the front face be replaceable.) It's definitely time for a new belt though, as it's usually custom to change it every several years. The spinner belt was around just as long as they usually keep the title around before redesigning. It's stayed around a bit past it's prime thanks to the replica sales it makes, plus Miz was able to redefine it into his own thing for a while which was...awesome.
Well now that I know what they are doing with the Bull side plates, I like it. I had no idea that they where interchangeable so they can put the champions logo on it. Thats pretty cool. I guess I wall looking at it like the million $ belt or the smoking skull and not thinking. How cool would it be for Orton to win it and have the viper's on it?
Im sorry you feel so strongly against it. I happen to think its a great fit for Wwe in the year 2013.
I love the fact that so many of the drive by IWC hate it so much, hilarious.
They'll only be happy if they bring back an AE belt.
