Ted DiBiaseTed DiBiase – One Step Down

Didn't this guy just return? Did he ever leave? Does WWE even care? Is he even real?

I don't know who this guy pissed off years ago, but he must have. It's the only explanation I can find that would make sense of the constant nothingness that has become his career. WWE clearly had high hopes for DiBiase coming out of Legacy, but those hopes amounted to nothing in the end. Cody Rhodes, on the other hand…

I know there are fans that will disagree with me on DiBiase's potential, but I don't see how you can really make that assessment when you consider how little help he's had from Creative.

I think he works best as a heel and should return to that quickly. Then again, WWE has to notice that the guy even exists before any of that will begin to matter.

The Hollywood Couple – One Step Down

It's a step down for Tara, even if she is having fun and trying hard, solely because there are better options for her and the entire Knockouts Division as a whole. The Knockouts title will be the that last thing on Creative's mind as long as these two stay together.

I'm not hating on Jesse from Big Brother yet. And the only reason people are is because he's a reality star and they can't get past the idea of it being a publicity stunt. Here's a quick fact for you: Jesse wanted to become a pro wrestler and was even training for that BEFORE going on the Big Brother show. Give him a chance at least.

Oh, and what's wrong with extra publicity for a wrestling company? It's the only way you reach new potential fans, I'm pretty sure.

That being said, I would have preferred Jesse debuted on his own or at least stayed away from Tara and the Knockouts Division. It's such an extreme act for Tara and completely out of character. So much so, it just comes off as cheesy, bad acting.
