Telling It Like It Is..By John-Michael Newton
This Week: Breaking Down The Royal Rumble, And Other Thoughts.
This Sunday will bring the Royal Rumble. Up until 2003, this was hands-down
the best PPV that the WWE had, and that INCLUDED Wrestlemania. Now, the
Rumble is nothing more than an afterthought, and yet another reason the WWE
needs to end the "brand extension".
It is pretty academic. Either Cena will win the Rumble and win the WWE
title at Mania, or Batista will win and Cripple H will blatantly refuse to
put him over, like he has everyone else. Personally I would rather see Cena
go over in the Mania Main event, because Cena has the potential to be a HUGE
star and draw, whereas Batista is a little rough around the edges. He is
over big time and has a good appearance, but we all know what will happen if
he and the LAME are in the main event. i have never thought of a mid-carder
like JBL being champ, but I will give him credit for being eager to put Cena
over for the title.
Until the brand extension mercifully ends, I have my past memories to go
back on. Such as the 1992 Rumble, one of Flair's greatest performances in
his career. the 1997 Rumble, with Austin and Hart going at it. And who can
forget The Crock caving Dick Foley's retarded head in with a chair 15 times,
and Undertaker smashing Maven's head through the popcorn machine in 2002.
The Royal Rumble has given us some of the best and funniest memories in
Wrestling (ESPECIALLY the Bushwacker Luke's 4.6 second appearance). Along
with King Of The Ring, the Rumble is one of the things the WWE's extension
TNA's PPV comes up on Feb 13th. Of course, the Undercard is strong, and of
course, The Main Event is Lame.....Jeff "TRIPLE J" Jarrett vs. Fat and Lazy
Kevin Nash. Two of the biggest LEECHES in wrestling being shoved down our
throat. Jarrett and Nash only care about themselves and no one else. I
wish Heyman would come in and fire their worthless asses. Apologies to a
few paople, but Heyman is not the scumbag people think he is. The Dudleys
can attest to that.
Well that is all for this week, time to go out with my friends and freexze
our butts off in New York. Shout out to Sign Guy Foley and the Pit Crew,
Heather, and The Hawk. War Cena winning at Mania..OUT!!!
