Hello good people. Let’s get right to this. After watching WWE these last few months, I came to thinking…There is an awful lot of talent either being used in the wrong way or not used at all. I for one, think using talent that were relevant 15-20 years ago, is not the way to go. With the exception of William Regal. Read through my top ten, and see why.
10. William Regal
In my mind William Regal, is the one of the greatest wrestlers of all time to never hold a major championship. Throughout his years in Europe, to WCW, and finally WWE, Regal has always connected with the WWE fans as a heel and fan favourite (I STILL refuse to use the term “universe” on the basis that it’s STILL stupid). Why not team him up with Wade Barrett, Drew McIntyre, or even both, to create a menacing UK faction that could be quite entertaining in today’s WWE.
Hello dear wrestling fans, here we go with another addition of Falls Count Anywhere. This week, I thought I cover a little bit on various topics that are on the minds of not only myself, but many wrestling fans. There is a lot of things I’ve liked a lot, and a few that have been perplexing to say the least. Let’s get going!
With this years PPV only a matter of days away i’m going down the list and reviewing the past PPV. Each articles will be a different year, also to see what was good and what was bad.
TLC 2010 This PPV once again focused on the young and upcoming superstar in Wade Barrett. This of course was the year of the Nexus who stole the summer in their take over / feud with WWE management. He took on the the face of the WWE in John Cena. Also on the card was a forgettable WWE title match with the Miz taking on Randy Orton. The under card was also forgettable. Hell this hole PPV was forgettable but the fact is its review time!
The Divas Tag Team Table match and the Tag Team Title matches were just filler. At the time the Tag Team division was a joke and had no meaning. The Divas match was a different from the norm and while the women gave good effort never stood out. Especially following a match before it.
#1 Contender Ladder Match For WWE Title: John Morrison Def. King Sheamus Before we get into this Lets remember that The Miz was champion at this time so the title was not was it usually is. The King Sheamus gimmick never got over and to have an Irish guy as a king was just laughable. Morrison has always been a guy that WWE management thought could be something but never matched up to the “Top Guy” role they wanted him to be.
John Cena Def. Wade Barrett in a Chairs Match. This really was the blow off with both guys, of course this was the year of the Nexus storyline and then they made Cena their B*tch. Cena got his revenge in this one and went on his marry way. Wade never rebounded since the Nexus and honestly looks lost. They have repacked him several times but nothing got him as over then when he was the top heel in the summer of this year.
WWE superstar Wade Barrett, who who has been off television for several weeks now, recently spoke to Neil Docking of Lep.co.uk to promote next month’s WWE Live Events tour of the UK.
During the interview, Barrett revealed that he should have been back on WWE television already, but he’s been stuck in the UK due to issues with his passport. He also addressed rumors that he’ll be returning to WWE with a new gimmick.
David Dexter reports that Wade Barrett recently spoke with the Toledo Free Press. Check out the highlights:
On taking the Intercontinental Title belt around with him: “I’m the only guy responsible for taking that everywhere. So, if I forget it or if I lose it — it’s big trouble, really…It’s very heavy to be carrying around in my hand luggage, and I can’t be putting it in my main luggage that goes in the hold on the plane, because those things get lost occasionally, or it might get stolen out of there. So I have to keep it on my person at all times. Or when you’re going through the security belt at the airport or stuff like that, people always want to take it out of the bag, going ‘Oh, what’s this giant metal thing you’ve got in your bag?’”
