Huh? All I said was he's more interesting as a heel. The only time I actually cared about watching him was while he was a Nexus / CORRE member. Has nothing to do with your battle royal idea. And for him to essentially come out of no where, win the IC title this month = bad idea. Especially since a jobber like Zach Ryder or Santino Marella are WAY more over. Need to build up the guy first. See if he can actually get over, then let him win a title.
As I stated in my last blog on Drew Mcintyre I love the little details they help get your point across. You dont have any, other then your later comments to the great one, you just named the ppvs and the current top ten superstars in the company and said he beats them I know you like gabriel and I do too but work it slower give us a notable fued along the way, you had him bounce from one wrestler to the next. keep one feud and give it some fire. looking forward to see how your next one goes as its the type of blog I do myself and enjoy
Truthfully, I do not agree with this blog. Sure the E is making a mockery of their talent but the E thrives from Superstars who made names for their selves elsewhere(Goldberg, Big Show, Kurt Angle, Brock Lesner, RVD, Miz, Jerry Lawler, Bret Hart, Chris Jericho, Ric Flair, Road Warriors, etc.). It is only once in a while that you find a John Cena,SCSA,HH, or Macho Man). Why are all the top superstars only known in the E? What have they done elsewhere to get recognized? Remember Punks old promos? They gave us a why as to why the hell should we watch him and I don't know about all of you but that was one of the only reasons I watched ECW. I believe that they are doing the best with what they have.
Dolph Ziggler is BORING. His in-ring skills are better than most of the roster on his worst day but his story telling and promos need tremendous amounts of work. He needs to look @ old Brian Pillman promos, have Sandow write down his top 5 pointers, or even watch pre-attitude era promos to find someone or something to mimic.
I do not believe that it is the E's fault (other than not finding the right talent) but I believe that they need to branch out and take a chance.
My biggest beef with Ziggler is his complete inability to "tell a story" in the ring. Sure, he's excellent at striking guys and is probably the best at excepting moves in the industry. But, he's awful as far as dictating a match. He's an athletic freak and can go nightly, but to me, his in-ring psychology leaves more than a lot to be desired. I mean in the 1 match we've finally seen Ambrose wrestle (against Taker), he told a far better story and really dictated his style. For that reason, I simply cant take Ziggler seriously as a champion or main eventer...
The Divas havent been relevant since the days of Trish & Lita. I was a Beth Phoenix fan, especially with Glamarella, but I've never been a fan of Diva matches and think they are much more suited to be managers / valets. That's the best way to get them over. I always bring up the fact that the 2 most over females in the industry are Vickie & AJ. Both are serving non-wrestling roles for the most part. Granted AJ is the new #1 contender, but what got her over was her girlfriend role.
I too thought Cody was on a rise when he was the IC Champ. I get the feeling is that there are more creative hands in the pot than when Vince was the #1 and pretty much only guy making calls during the later stages of the Attitude Era. Too many ideas, too many bad ideas that is. It's mucking up the works.
Sandow & Bryan are my 2 favorites in the WWE today. I still have high hopes for both. You know Sandow will go far because of HHH being a big proponent of his. As for Bryan, I almost feel like this goof tag team character is Vince's way of sticking it to the IWC. "Yes, he's the best in ring talent in the industry, but I'm Vince McMahon and I will show you who runs everything"...
Cesaro came up with the yodeling as a way to help himself get over. I never got his appeal. I appreciate his in-ring work, but his character never did anything for me and his look is pretty meh. Cesaro is not a guy, that I can see, selling out arenas or selling merchandise. He's about as bland as bland is.

LOLZ, This is so true!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! May The Fallen Angel look down on you and may the poor have their request accepted "Feed Me More".
Agree, agree, agree.
So spot on.
For the first time in years, I did not watch RAW because I knew CM Punk wouldnt be there. While, I would like him to rest up and get well, there are no current storylines (except for the shield) that I am interested in.
I think RAW would be more watchable if it werent for all the constant spamming of touts, tweets, dumb shit that happened during commercial, and jerry and cole bickering at eachother. JBL is the only reason I listen to the show with the volume up.

Once again please read the comment before for the full meassge of him being heel. He has just won a battle royal on main event to get to face barrett, i think they got miz to win the title at WM because they don't want barrett to have the title but then because of the miz's schedule they had to pick the most logical choice to have win the title off of miz, wade barrett. i think when they have gabriel vs barrett for the intercontinental championship they will have him win, for all the previous reasons.
