If you could re-write history
I'm probably going to open a can of worms here, but I figured this'll be something fun to do.
If you could go back in time and re-write any angle, what would it be? How would you change it? Why would you change it?
So, for example, here is one that has been a bit of a stickler for me:
Nearly six years ago, Vince McMahon stepped into his limo and was subsequently 'blown up' and so began the 'Whodunnit' angle. Two weeks later, McMahon was forced into a position where he had to come onto live television and tell us all about the death of Chris Benoit and his family.
For the next few weeks, I should have imagined the creative team were scrambling around trying to come up with a plausible reason as to why the boss was dead, but is now alive again and what did they come up with? McMahon faked his own death because he wanted to know what we all really thought of him.
I remember watching that episode of Raw anticipating this explanation, only to end up very disappointed. I was alone in my living room and I still felt the need to say out loud "You have got to be fucking kidding me. Was that it?"
So what would I have done differently? Well, if I was in that creative meeting, I would have pushed for McMahon to tell the truth. Have him come out on Raw and say "Yes, I did fake my own death. Yes, there was a greater plan but Chris Benoit cocked it up for me." Not go in depth as to how Benoit put a dent in McMahon's plans, but just a passing mention.
Definitely a controversial way to go, but it would have been better for a variety of reasons. Firstly, it's more logical and believable. Secondly, it would have created the blurring of the lines that some of us love so much. PG didn't kick in until 2008, so it would have been do-able.
Anyway, that's my moment I'd like to re-write.
