Sheamus pushes Kofi over the top rope, I have two immediate thoughts....
1. You gotta be kidding me?
2. I know my email box will be flooded with people who either share my pain or “smarks” (Marks who think they are smart) that would begin to tell me how dumb I am for my thoughts on Sheamus that was published on this site about two weeks ago. http://www.wrestlezone.com/editorials/article/how-long-until-he-is-released-89555
I was not disappointed as I had to silence the blackberry because my email box wouldn't stop making noise.
This weeks episode of RAW was entertaining. Truth was realized and spoken by Jesse Ventura in that the same guys are getting title shots. So lets get some fresh blood. Even the allowing of Randy Orton to get to the battle royal was a nice touch, just to scare everyone a little bit that he might end up winning.
In the battle royal, there were a lot of faces for RAW. Kofi and MVP being the biggest. Its unlikely that for only 3 weeks of build up to TLC PPV, that you would risk the momentum of a strong face to go against Cena.
So tell me this.....why not Ted DiBiase?
He is still considered a heel. He is the better wrestler out of him and Cody. Oh and not to mention...it would do wonders of fueling the fire between him and Orton. Imagine Ortons reaction if Ted got the title shot that Randy spent all night getting Ventura to make him eligible for.
But instead we go with Sheamus. I have no problem with young talent being pushed. I have no problem with the guy Sheamus.I am all in favor of new faces getting television time. The problem I have is that this guy has hardly even fought anyone since being this big force on RAW. I know I know I know, he was in ECW and won matches.
But if you haven't noticed, ECW has about as much relevancy to the World and WWE title as your backyard wrestling league does.
So he shows up to RAW and retires Jamie Noble. A nice guy, hard worker, but come on, its Jamie Fu***ng Noble. Its not like he forced a first ballot hall of fame entrant to hang up his boots.
Next he beats a jobber that had no name in England, kicks a time keeper and Jerry Lawler gets a cheap shot.
If he had at least been beating up on nobody since August on RAW, maybe than I could deal with the title match.
I think it would be hilarious if Jamie Noble shows up and costs him the match with Cena, it may not increase PPV buys, but it would make me laugh!
RAW was very entertaining for the most part. Would have loved last night to be the start of a DX-Hart Dynasty feud. I mean constant reminder is brought up that DX has some history with the Hart family, I think that would be more interesting than seeing them try and capture the tag titles.
Although I was glad to see that match happen last night. I just hope later on it is revisited before DX is done because I think there is a gold mind of compelling writing and wrestling to be done with that feud.
I liked the different pace we got with RAW. I was happy that the 3 hours was kept entertaining and gave time for some wrestling to be done.
I'll be back later this week with my thoughts on Rey Mysterio, who is injured again. Happy Thanksgiving! Just don't sit at the dinner table and say you are thankful for the rise of Sheamus this quickly, otherwise I hope someone takes your slice of desert for good measure.
As always open for entertainment with your emails. I enjoy reading them and talking with most of you, even if we don't agree, just as long as your not a “smark” or an ass about your point.
