Hey Splashers! I just submitted my “Blog Wars:KOTR Edition: Top 3 PPV’s”. I’ve already read Knox’s and Rodrik’s and they both got a great read! Well enough of the pluggin, and let start the splashin!
Finishing Moves: Breaking the “Bickering Code”.
I watched TNA’s Final Resolution, and during the Kurt Angle/James Storm Match, Storm did attack him with a similar version of Jericho’s Code Breaker. He then followed it up with his own version of a Back Stabber. This caused a bit of a stir in the news as some fans were not happy that Storm used Jericho’s Code Breaker. When asked about this, Jericho himself just blew it off by saying “Who’s James Storm?”
However fans always seem to be annoyed when wrestlers, use other wrestler’s finishers. They actually seem to be more annoyed than the wrestler who created the move himself. Maybe it’s because wrestlers do not own these moves, and are subject to be used by anyone. If that was the case Randy Orton would not have the RKO, as it was already taken by DDP and his Diamond Cutter. And Page has hit The Cutter every way Orton has hit the RKO. If we want to refer to Orton again, just earlier this past year he had no problems using Kurt Angle’s Angle slam. If that’s not argument enough let’s go back to Jericho and his Walls of Jericho, which is nothing more than a Boston Crab, which he did not create. Jericho would not be able to use that move. Does this sound like something everyone else would want?
On the 2011 Slammy Edition of RAW
It was good to see some classic faces such as Lita and Road Dogg. There was a great segment when Cena called out the Rock to honor their award together, knowing he wasn’t there. He proved yet again, that “The Rock” couldn’t be bothered with the WWE Universe. The Slammy Awards themselves were not too bad, although the award was almost always practical, if not collateral like Zack Ryder was.
As for Kane’s return, I liked it. It gave me a shiver up my spine like he used to do. I liked the blow torch mask, but I’m not sure if I liked the new version of the Kane mask. Let’s see if it grows on me. Some friends of mine and talked, and we all wonder if bringing the Vintage Kane back is for a possible match for the Taker at WM28. I myself think a Taker/Kane at WM28 is just unneeded at this point in either of their careers. They had a great feud for the World Title last year with Paul Bearer in tow I might add. There’s no need to relive history just so soon. Lastly with the talk of Kane's Mask being the point of sale, now that Sin Cara is out only makes me question his injury even more.
RAW Also showed the 4th video of the January 2nd 2012 “It Begins” video. While the child was talking about the timing of his arrival, he referred to a female, as “She holds the mystery” to his arrival. When I first saw the Video Instantly thought Jericho or Taker. Now that the girl has been put into place over the past couple of weeks, it’s put a whole new spin on the thing. Last week the message told us to “look within”. A nice theory I would like for these promos is the return of Shane McMahon, and the girl is Stephanie allowing him to come back to the WWE. It’s either that or The Undertaker and Michelle McCool.
Well that’s it for this one guys. On my next splash, I’ll give you my complete thoughts on TNA’s Final Resolution 2011. Until next time..See ya when I see ya!
