So the top of the Wrestlemania card is shaping up, and if we’re being honest, it is pretty underwhelming. The “face” of the WWE, Randy Orton is scheduled to headline the event versus Batista, a match exactly zero people are excited to see. Maybe WWE management will add Daniel Bryan to the match to please the fans, but as of now Bryan is scheduled to wrestle Triple H. And besides I’m not a big fan of changing matches the night of a show. I like the build. I like the storylines. That’s what sells it for me. Not last-minute changes. It took 2 years for the Mega-Powers to explode, and when they finally met in Atlantic City it was a memorable moment.
Hitting the Ropes: Super Cena?
It’s a bird…it’s a plane…no wait…it’s Super Cena!
Faster than Rey Mysterio!
Stronger than Mark Henry!
Able to leap Big Shows in a single bound!
John Cena isn’t a real super hero, but he does play one on TV. Actually that’s all wrestling really is…people that can do physically amazing things all within the context of a storyline or angle. John Cena happens to do this very well. Maybe a little too well. Because even though he has risen to the top of the largest sports entertainment company in the world, it seem like everybody hates him!
Hitting the Ropes - The Year of the Snake?
This past week on Monday Night Raw Wade Barrett pinned Randy Orton right in the middle of the ring. I read it may be the beginning of Orton’s heel turn, all part of a storyline. Really? I know one thing – John Cena’s not getting pinned clean on Monday nights. Ever. Neither is CM Punk. I used to think Orton was in their league but now I’m not so sure.
