Stephanie fires Brad Maddox +++ Wade Barrett is like school in summer +++ Summer Rae has taken over from AJ Lee as the hysterical psycho bitch +++ Hornswoggle versus El Torito continues +++ Jerry Lawler is getting involved to keep Super Cena face +++ Damien Sandow has to sport just another gimmick +++ Nobody touches Adam Rose’s lemon without punishment +++ Sheamus versus Cesaro is getting really ugly +++ Dean Ambrose makes a comedy show from a simple contract signing
[The Gif was brought to you by cherrypie-yeahh] || WWE announcers JBL and Michael Cole were clearly confused about all the injuries of the three Shield guys they had to sell on SmackDown. The first match was the re-match for the United States Championship between Sheamus and Dean Ambrose. And from the beginning Michael Cole was referring to a left shoulder injury Dean Ambrose had been supposedly suffered during The Shield’s humiliation by The Evolution on latest RAW. The only problem was that DA himself wasn’t selling this shoulder “injury” but his actual waist injury. It was only made visible when Sheamus pulled the shirt over Dean’s head for his Bodhran beats on Dean’s chest. And Michael Cole was like “Whoops, there might be probably an actual waist injury (damn shirt, so I couldn’t see this taping!)”.
[the above shown GIF set is brought to you by cherrypie-yeahh] || I think, I can manage to make this a shorter article than usual. Well, I need to. And there is hardly anything notable to write about the latest edition of RAW, isn’t it? We got a poll on who of The Shield should wrestle Kane this evening and we all know that these polls are fake. But still Michael Cole kept telling us that “WE”, the WWE Universe, had the actual choice to vote (he indeed meant it, I think). When this poll came up I instantly knew that it would be Roman Reigns given he’s the one the WWE wants to be the next star of their company. But the outcome of the voting actually was ridiculous: 11% for Seth Rollins, 9% for Dean Ambrose, and a whopping 80% for Roman Reigns (at least the WWE got the sum of 100% correctly this time). I’m not at all mad about the outcome of that poll because it was pretty clear that WWE wanted this match. But do you really think that so many fans wanted this match?
Because at last night’s RAW it was a subject again I did some research on Dean Ambrose’s title defenses (basically on OnlineWorldofWrestling). Like JBL once again mumbled that he would never defend his United States Championship belt. On May 19, 2013 at Extreme Rules Dean Ambrose defeated WWE United States champion Kofi Kingston to win the title. And that was followed by these (to date) 25 title defenses:
Of course RAW started with Triple H inside the ring (only in Chicago he was the coward he is with sending Paul Heyman out first) and he was then joined by Batista. What were they talking about? The usual crap basically. Performed in a hilariously amateurish way with stumbling over several words, never creating any heat against them inside me. Really, I couldn’t care less about Triple H and his entourage – or should I say Stephanie McMahon and her pet Triple H? Like that basically was Triple H appearing as: a faithful dog who did everything for his mistress.
So, where to start when most of Smackdown was about The Shield but you (me!) don’t have much time left because you (me again!) have to catch an early train tomorrow for the Leipzig book fair? No real elaboration this time then but just straight forward writing. Here we go:
Once upon a time (actually in 44 B.C.) Gaius Iulius Caesar used to get through with his correspondence while attending the circus or some other amusement in ancient Rome. And the audience was cheering on him because he didn’t join in the excitement, he didn’t participate and he just didn’t care what was going on in the arena.
