I was trying to leave the Goldberg v Brock Lesnar review as my last ever Wrestling Blog, because those two guys symbolize when wrestling drew an audience and when wrestling was fun to watch. Well this Blog will be the complete opposite of that, in a UK press conference the WWE higher ups announced that in January 2017 there will be a UK wrestlers only tournament. The winner will become the WWE United Kingdom Champion. Commentary will be Smarks delight Nigel McGuinness as well as Michael Cole aka nails on a chalkboard.
As soon as I read that I burst out laughing, but after a few moments I just stopped and was in complete disbelief. The WWE has now 100% caved into the smarks, they've caved into people like Dalyxman (who is fully in favor of this tournament, he sees nothing wrong with it). This time three years ago wrestling could be considered decent, they had some guys that were from the indies, guys like CM Punk, Bray Wyatt and The Shield (when they were cool).
WWE felt like something that wasn't the coolest thing too watch, but if someone walked in on you watching The Shield attacking The Undertaker they'd probably sit down and watch it with you. Well now Monday Night RAW, Smackdown, Main Event, Superstars, Roadblock in my life and whichever other meaningless shows that the WWE are putting on are embarrasing to watch for normal people. They are catering these things that don't want the company to succeed, they want the company to be a nationally televised version of Ring of Honor or maybe...what's an indie promotion they all love...chikara.
Imagine how sad you would have to be as a person to be watching these WWE UK Tournament shows in January. Interested as to how these indie midgets with no personality, charisma or entertainment value do ridiculous looking kicks and wrestling combinations that look as fake as anything. This UK tournament is yet another reason why I've got away from professional wrestling, another reason why I've gotten away from RAW and Smackdown. Because Sami Zayn and James Ellsworth are prominant personnel on their respective show.
Then there is WWE 205 Live, that failure of a concept. The idea for this was too put on yet another weekly WWE show, this one would purely feature even more cruiserweights. When it comes to the cruiserweights, I was kind of into the Cruiserweight classic as it was something that was somewhat fresh in the landscape of WWE. But then they got onto RAW...what am I saying, the WWE roster has been cruiserweights for a couple of years now. Ever since the charisma-less ginger Sami Zayn debuted, this show has just gone out of their way to please this disgusting smark fanbase.
Apparently Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn are running the 205 Live Show, too that I say one thing...good. I hope they humiliate the cruiserweights, I hope Vince fires the whole division. Just get rid of all of them, they've just admitting that these cruiserweights an essential asset to the WWE right now. And boy do I hate it.
