Hey guys wassup. Man the IWC is buzzing right now and for good reason. We have an unbelievable Extreme Rules PPV in the making. Two new maineventers who are actually old in age. Christian & R-Truth, both are true wrestlers whom have paid their dues are finally getting the push they deserve.
After watching Christian win the 20-Man Battle Royal for the chance to face Del Rio for the World Championship and after watchin R-Truth be added to the Triple Treat for the WWE Championship, I noticed something.
TWO FORMER TNA TALENT IN THE MAINEVENT FOR BOTH WORLD TITLES AT A PPV. Thats big news.
Now let me dicuss reasons why they both deserve it.
Christian deserves his run. He's one of the great talkers of this business even as a face. He's one of the only guys that can cut a huge convincing promo as a face. That was something that CM Punk couldn't do which is why they turned him heel. Christian has carried out every gimmick that he was handed and made the best out of it.
His matches are sick. He literally has the most exciting matches in the WWE because his moveset is so large. He doesn't have the most acrobatic or powerful moves but his moveset delivers.
He's spent a whole lot of time being known as the other guy. He's been known as the Janetty of E&C. He's paid his dues. Ran through almost 7 different WWE themes(lol) and has still remained relevant.
He went to TNA because he wasn't being used properly. Came back and had a long run as the ECW Champ. Even though its the WWECW champ, he still held and defended that belt with pride.
This is the same guy that Vince had no love for. Vince said he would amount to nothing more than a midcarder at best. And now look at the trust that Vince is finally giving this man. When I look at Christian I truly do see a World Champ.
We fastforward to now and he's till as entertaining as a normal wrestler. I believe with all my heart they will book him to win. The time is right. The IWC are still in shock over Edge's retirement. What better way to accomodate this sad moment than to have Christian as your New World Heavyweight Champion.
R-Truth is what we consider another trailblazer of this business. Many people have bashed him claiming he hasn't done enough to be considered as WWE Title Contender. I believe its the ignorance of the fans. Just because he had a small stint with the WWF back in the day does not mean he isn't ready. People think that the only place you accomplish great wrestling is in the WWE which is absolutely ignorant.
Truth has made a name for himself all around the world for his wrestling. He's also a former TNA World Champ which is saying alot. I will however admit that his gimmick is trash and a heel turn would do him justice. Or maybe just a new theme by another artist like Jay-Z or THE GREATEST OF ALL-TIME EMINEM(sorry that wasn't wrestling related lol) so that we won't have to hear R-Truth lose his breath and rap at the sametime to the ring.
Point blank the dude is a pure athlete. He can hold his own with the best of the best in the ring. He has the respect of his peers and even Vince backstage. I think its a delightful curve-ball to see him in the mainevent.
I mean look at his match last Monday. He convincingly carried the match. He carried Cena and actually outstaged him. He gave Cena a wrestling bonanza and it goes to show how mediocre skills can be exposed when in the ring with a true wrestler. Cena looked horrible in the match and Truth looked amazing.
I honestly dont think they will give him the belt at Extreme Rules which is a complete tragedy in my opinion. I respect R-Truth and hopefully this match will elevate his name to the point where Creative actually takes him serious. He is a hell-of-a talent who's up there in age so this could be his last chance.
