[VOTE] WrestleCrap Power Crappings Week XXXI

34 Submitted by on Mon, 19 August 2013, 15:19

-Choose five (5) of the nominees below (or if you have another nominee in mind, you can add that to your list)

-In an e-mail to Justin Henry (wrestlecrapjrh@gmail.com), rank your five selections from the worst (in your opinion) to least-worst. (NOTE: we’ll soon be working on an interface to make this more convenient. Sorry that copying and pasting is sooooo hard for some of you!)

-Any of last week’s Top 15 are fair game for you to still vote on, even if the angle has been somewhat abandoned, or has dissipated. This is known as “Unfading Crap Stench.”

And that’s it! Votes will be accepted up until midnight EST tonight. The Top 15 (or bottom 15, as it were) will be revealed tomorrow.

**NOTE: I didn’t include the SummerSlam conclusion, as I personally feel it could lead to an angle where Daniel Bryan triumphs over all. Any crappy twists and turns along the way will be included in future polls. Also, even if you’re homophobic, no votes for Darren Young, please? Keep the hate where it’s deserved to be**

  1. Peter says:

    1. Ric Flair drunk at the panel – I don’t care how much some fans were getting a kick out of it, it’s sad to watch.
    2. Tito Ortiz joins, quits, is the Huntington Beach Bitch.
    3. Primo and Epico as matadors.
    4. Ryback vs. the catering staff
    5. Tony Dawson – His face was creeping me out during the Summerslam pregame.

  2. John Q Occupier says:

    5- Lack of Summerslam Meme. Sure, the guy might have been busy, but I’m gonna be selfish and say that us folks who aren’t on the forums should get some warning too.
    4-Epico and Primo as matadors. If that isn’t Wrestlecrap then I’m the Boogeyman.
    3-Ryback bullies the Summerslam catering staff. Here’s hoping it leads to him putting on hundreds of pounds and becoming Bastion Booger Mark II.
    2-The Tito Ortiz screwjob angle… even though it’s not so much “wrestlecrap” as just “crap”.
    1-The McMahon powertrip screwjobs the ending of Summerslam. What is this, 2000?

    • Justin Henry says:

      my apologies for a lack of a SummerSlam meme. I was filling in at another website reviewing the PPV in real time, and was completely burned out.

      • John Q Occupier says:

        Again, no hate for you, man- just bummed that one of the things I find funniest about the site went AWOL.

  3. Justin Henry says:

    I don’t know what’s worse; the fact that you’re sanctimonious about me mislabeling the numeral, or the fact that you hide behind a sham e-mail address. Sheesh, at least we know what country Eric Snowden’s in.

  4. Bigbattle22 says:

    1: Rig pole for Summerslam had diva match as the most must see match in the PPV (Cena/Bryan got 12%, Punk/Brock got nothing, diva match got 72%! Guess how well the diva match went.)
    2: Smackdown rumored to be moving to three hours
    3: The Bella Twins
    4: The Miz’s hosting performance at SummerSlam
    5: Orton as WWE champ again (This might be good storyline fuel if WWE play their cards right, hence why it’s #5. But that is a really big “If”.)

  5. Derek Blackley says:

    2. WWE Total Divas
    4. Miz as a face
    Botched ending/ref error in Raw mixed tag match
    The Miz’s hosting performance at SummerSlam
    Ryback bullies the summerSlam catering staff

  6. Craig says:

    I’m with the people who think Randy Orton’s title win should be part of the voting. It was a crappy way to end the PPV and that shouldn’t be ignored just because it might lead to something good.

    • Justin Henry says:

      If this was 1988, you’d be voting for “Hulk Hogan reigns for 4 years, just to lose become of impostor referee”. It led to Savage becoming champion. Sometimes, you have to give the benefit of the doubt.

      • Falcone says:

        Didn’t savage as champion kill the ratings?

        • Justin Henry says:

          Pretty sure Raw in 1988 was still squashing Crockett Productions Nitro, despite being a PG broadcast

          • Craig says:

            For starters, Nitro didn’t even exist in 1988. That came around in the 90′s.

            Secondly, just because the bad thing might lead to some good somewhere down the line doesn’t mean the bad thing isn’t actually bad. Giving one of the most popular guys on WWE’s roster a less then five minute title reign is worse then anything already on the list, save the Angle DUI and it’s horribleness ought to be acknowledged in the rankings.

            • Justin Henry says:

              “For starters, Nitro didn’t even exist in 1988. That came around in the 90′s.”

              /FACEPALM

              Jesus, Craig, take your Exaggeration Detector to the shop….

              • Thomas Moffatt says:

                This going to be Bryan v Triple H in the future – again the part-timer throwing himself into the mix this time to leach off the hottest talent in WWE

  7. RB says:

    World of Sport Wrestling not on British TV
    Smackdown rumored to be moving to three hours
    Ryback bullies the summerSlam catering staff
    Ric Flair apparently inebriated at SummerSlam AXXESS panel
    Epico and Primo rumored to be repackaged as matadors

  8. Marvelous says:

    I say Daniel Bryan’s first wwe title win reaction being squandered should top the list. To clarify I do t mind the cash in or the angle itself, but first reigns are defining moments and that “holy shit he did it” feeling can’t be had twice should he win again

  9. Meh says:

    1. The fans at SummerSlam 2013. during Natalya vs Brie Bella
    2. World of Sport Wrestling not on British TV.
    3. Ric Flair drunk at the panel – I don’t care how much some fans were getting a kick out of it, it’s sad to watch.
    4. Bo Dallas as NXT Champion
    5.. WWE Total Divas

  10. Sherry says:

    1. Vickie Guerrero a GM of SD
    2. TNA cut all of those talents before deciding Brooke Hogan’s contract should be axed
    3. Smackdown rumored to be moving to three hours
    4. Ryback bullies the summerSlam catering staff
    5. Randy becomes WWE champion via HHH screwing Bryan over

  11. AlexanAdru says:

    5.Smackdown rumored to be moving to three hours (cause creative/wrestlers aren’t burnt out enough apparently.)
    4. Ric Flair apparently inebriated at SummerSlam AXXESS panel( Flair seems hell-bent of destroying his legacy and what little dignity he has left.)
    3. Tony Dawson
    2.Tito Ortiz joins, then quits, Main Event Mafia before aligning with Aces and Eights
    1. Randy “The Robot” Orton WWE champ AGAIN. While I agree that this angle could/probably will work out in the end it just sucks that Randy is the one holding the top belt he is beyond stale and not worth all the problems that come with him.

  12. A.B. says:

    1. Ric Flair at the SummerSlam conference
    2. TNA releases talented performers, then talentless Brooke Hogan
    3. Miz as a babyface
    4. The Bella Twins
    5. Tito Ortiz as August 1 reveal

  13. Sean O says:

    1: SD! supposedly moving to 3 hours…as if Raw wasn’t bad enough? Why not just make SD! live instead?
    2: Ortiz joining Aces & 8s
    3: TNA cutting all of those talents before firing Brooke
    4: McMahon Power Trip
    5: Flair supposedly drunk at Summerslam Axxess

  14. bigpoppanasty says:

    Can’t we just make a category called “Tito Ortiz in TNA” and call that number one every week until he’s gone?

  15. Joseph Klemm says:

    Can I just write “McMahon Power Trip” five times, as it pretty much deserves it after the crap that happened at Summerslam and Raw?

    In that case:

    1. McMahon/HHH Power Trip

    2. Randy Orton as WWE Champ

    3. Epico and Primo as matadors

    4. Ryback as a bully

    5. Tito Ortiz joins, then quits, Main Event Mafia before aligning with Aces and Eights

    • Superstarl says:

      I don’t understand it when Randy and Trips make the cut. Is this REALLY wrestlecrap, or is it just a booking decision that you don’t really agree with completely. I get that a lot of people don’t like it, but I don’t think you can really tell if its genuinely bad yet since it just started. Is it because of Randy’s wellness strikes? I guess I could see that.

  16. hulk6785 says:

    1. Randy Orton beats Daniel Bryan for WWE Title with Triple H’s help
    2. TNA cut all of those talents before deciding Brooke Hogan’s contract should be axed
    3. Tito Ortiz joins, then quits, Main Event Mafia before aligning with Aces and Eights
    4. Smackdown rumored to be moving to three hours
    5. Epico and Primo rumored to be repackaged as matadors

  17. Phil Melcher says:

    5. Mark Henry squashes kid, wins ringside seats. Fans at ringside…WHAT COULD GO WRONG?

    4. The Bella Twins. THESE are the Divas WWE is pushing? Duck calls!

    3. WWE’s constant horrible booking of Natalya. Okay, she won cleanly at SummerSlam but she’s still Khali’s boo right?

    2. HHH Staples Center Screwjob. Yes Sheamus winning in 18 seconds was ridiculous but HHH turning heel and putting himself over a very very good title match? Obnoxious!

    1. Rowan and Harper channeling the three stooges at SummerSlam. Look, if the story being told OUTSIDE of a ring on fire is so much more entertaining (Think Shemp and Curly with that asbestos blanket) than what’s in the ring…that’s just bad

  18. Piper's Armpit says:

    1. The Miz as Summerslam host.
    2. The Miz as a babyface.
    3. Total Divas.
    4. Ryback stealing Zack Ryder’s quest to face catering on PPV.
    5. Brooke Hogan’s existence in wrestling.

    Future nominee: Los Matadores … start writing the induction now.

  19. Hashington says:

    1 – Orton being given the title again. He should’ve been fired years ago for his douchebaggery and complete lack of charisma.
    2 – Everything to do with McMahon-Levesques. These corporate powertrip screwjob angles are so 15 years ago. Get the hell off the camera already.
    3 – Tito in TNA.
    4 – Bellas and that talentless redhead.
    5 – Miz/Fandango garbage at SS.

  20. MJA says:

    5) WWE Total Divas.
    4) Ryback bullies the summerSlam catering staff.
    3) TNA cut all of those talents before deciding Brooke Hogan’s contract should be axed.
    2) Tito Ortiz joins, then quits, Main Event Mafia before aligning with Aces and Eights.
    1) Despite Cena almost killing himself to put on a 5-star match and put Daniel Bryan over clean, fans still boo him out of the building during his farewell speech.

  21. Bugsquid says:

    1.TNA cut all of those talents before deciding Brooke Hogan’s contract should be axed
    2.Botched ending/ref error in Raw mixed tag match
    3.Smackdown rumored to be moving to three hours
    4.Ric Flair apparently inebriated at SummerSlam AXXESS panel
    5.Miz as a face

  22. Superstarl says:

    1. 3 hour smackdowns- I just feel like an over inundation of wrestling is not gonna do much for most people.
    2.Botched ending/ref error in Raw mixed tag match- This made me lol

    3.TNA cut all of those talents before deciding Brooke Hogan’s contract should be axed- Good talent after bad

    4. Tito Ortiz joins, then quits, Main Event Mafia before aligning with Aces and Eights- Poor TNA, having to use the Bellator folks.

    5. The Bella Twins- Not sure how they got to be the favored divas, but there are better ones.

  23. Thomas Moffatt says:

    5) The Bellas – no comment
    4) Tony Dawson – the awful Michael Cole distraction
    3) Kofi Kingston – he’s back! With new trunks!!!!!!!! New packaging, same overrated stale routine as before complete with charismaless promos
    2) World of Sport not on British TV – I nominated this week because yet against British terrestrial TV shit out on wrestling fans
    1) All things Triple and Nipple H – Daniel Bryan’s makeover, McMahon Power Struggle, evaluations, crap acting, Orton becoming champ due to Triple H; I see where this is going, Triple H v Daniel Bryan, shock horror Triple H beats the hottest property in WWE…

    *Bo Dallas has been spared as he was not inflicted on the viewers and those in attendance this week on NXT…

  24. Ed says:

    Anyone saying the end of Summerslam is a mark. They obviously worked you into the response they wanted. That’s why there’s MARK in SMARK. Now then, onto business:

    1. Tito Ortiz
    2. Bully Ry
    3. Matadores
    4. Ric Flair drunk
    5. 3 hour SD
