Once again, WrestleCrap is back with its brand new, weekly interaction, in which Our Loyal Crappers decide what the worst in wrestling was for the past week. They can choose gimmicks, storylines, news stories, or anything else that constitutes “Crap”, and the votes are tallied in order to determine the WORST in wrestling…..at least for this week!
1. John Cena survives 3 on 1 against The Shield (NR)
So maybe it didn’t hurt the Shield all that much, but the immediate outrage to three interesting villains getting punked by an injured Cena was palpably thick.
2. Chavo Guerrero needlessly involves himself in Aries/Hemme incident (NR)
The unfortunate incident was already being rectified behind the scenes. No need for Chavo’s “WERE YOU THERE?” obnoxiousness to fans on Twitter.
3. John Cena vs. Ryback ends in non-finish (NR)
Granted, it’s not the first Last Man Standing match to end with a double KO, but these “stretched over 2 or 3 $55-PPV” feuds get tiresome in a hurry.
4. WWE officials reportedly find Antonio Cesaro ‘boring’ (NR)
There’s a point to ponder: they get rid of talent who don’t connect, but Stephanie and the creative team remain largely unchanged. Odd indeed.
5. WWE App Overkill (NR)
Downloadit. Downloadit. Downloadit. Downloadit. Downloadit. Downloadit. DOWNLOADIT. WHY HAVEN’T YOU DOWNLOADED IT.
6. Sheamus as a babyface (4)
As popular a hero as Meteor Man, with unfortunately far more staying power. Outside of his skin and his accent, he’s not unique, except in his unlikability.
7. Miz as a babyface (11)
Although not currently the most hated face by Our Loyal Crappers, he still makes the list, 18 weeks running! Did anyone miss him while he was away?
8. WWE creative reportedly has no plans for Christian (1)
Consider the two previous entries, and then consider this one. And some of you thought my protesting of the May 20 Raw was a little excessive. Eh eh.
9. The Jericho-Fandango Danceoff (NR)
I personally had no issues with this segment (I loves me some Edyta), except for that fact that it took 15 minutes to execute a bait and switch.
10. Alberto Del Rio as a babyface (NR)
He turned without explanation, and WWE can’t seem to figure out why fans chant for Dolph Ziggler during his matches. It’s a mystery for the ages!
11. Tony Dawson (9)
One reader nailed it: they got rid of several NXTers last week who worked hard, but not the blithering idiot that can’t do their work justice. The Shield should fix this.
12. Taz on commentary (NR)
Veers too much between calling the action to his best abilities, and then ramping up the obnoxious heel act when he remembers he’s supposed to be a dick.
13. Jay Briscoe makes violent threat to gay marriage advocates (2)
If I may, seems this entry got the Chic Fil A treatment: temporary outrage, followed by a quick moving on. Describes a lot of these entries actually.
14. James Storm’s plodding, slow attacks against Dirty Heels, Bad Influence (NR)
Storm seems quite subdued in his recent attacks against turncoat friends. And it’s for naught: a groin injury has shelved him 6-8 weeks.
15. WWE releases Derrick Bateman (NR)
I never much cared for him, but “USA Guy” had a following more cult than mainstream. That, sadly, tends to get some people the premature axe.
