Finally there was a reason to watch WWE again because Dean Ambrose finally won a belt fair and square without having to steal it. Dean Ambrose is now the Intercontinental Champion and these are my thoughts about it. Expect a few exciting words, also because of something that took place on the RAW show that followed TLC.
This is an open letter to WWE that I have written for as many people as possible to read. In here I’m expressing my feelings about the use of wrestlers (male and female) in WWE, the storylines and gimmicks. I’m just a fan, maybe a fan who thinks and cares too much, therefore I’m writing this open letter to feel a little better but also try to push forward demands for the wrestlers who won’t ever say anything bad about the company, so someone else has to do this for them. At the end this open letter will be nothing else but a drop of tear. But many tears will make a river and when you don’t change anything, WWE, this river will become an ocean that will finally run over your headquarters and your whole company.
I’m furious. And I’m calm at the same time. I’m furious because fans expressing their demands and feelings for so long already. But everything that WWE does is throwing out a few bones to their fans like they are dogs. And when the big wave of anger is swept away, it’s back to the usual business. But I’m also calm because I’m able to express my feelings; I’m able to put into words what’s wrong with the WWE, with this company that acts like it stands above all, like it’s the only true religion on Earth. But viewership goes down and apparently Vince McMahon doesn’t know why. So, please, lean back and read on. I’ll tell you right now.
This headline was written right after Night Of Champions. But I awaited the results of the following RAW before writing anything. This time I’m not just lamenting but also take you to my imagination of possibilities that WWE always throws out as hints but never realize for whatever reason. Feel free to join me in my frustration.
It feels like years ago that Cesaro got his tiny little push that fell on a Friday. But also in his very short matches he’s probably more entertaining than any participant of so-called main event matches recently. Mid-week was a lot better with the debut of Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa in NXT. Plus: I’m losing all of my enthusiasm for the current Dean Ambrose character. All this in the newest edition of The Wrestling Week That Was. Enjoy!
A few things happened in the last few days that need my commentary. A few things will happen that need a bit of promotion. And a few things might happen that need a bit of speculation. In this article I’m talking about the new shirt of Cesaro, the lack of any merchandize for William Regal, his possible match at NXT TakeOver: London, a few other things about NXT, and of course a few words about Dean Ambrose. Enjoy!
I struggled with writing this new article / blog post / part of a series. I really did. During watching the segments I’m interested in, I made notes but later on didn’t have much ambition to write them out properly because the heat outside and me not really ambitious about it. So I somehow finally managed to connect the notes to full sentences and with each other for having just the really important stuff from last week in here. Maybe it’s better to read this way. Not much babbling from me towards the important facts. Just the facts this time. Enjoy.
I’m already looking forward to NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn and SummerSlam the very next day. It will be a hell of a weekend. The only bad thing about is, I’m not looking forward to watching Dean Ambrose there. It will be all about Cesaro, William Regal and Kevin Owens for me. And this past week just further proved it.
