WrestleCrap Power Crappings Week XXIII

14 Submitted by on Tue, 25 June 2013, 11:44

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. Stephanie McMahon talks down to AJ and Kaitlyn, just to show she’s a bad ass (NR)

This entry got more votes than any other in Power Crappings history, and for good reason. The truly irrelevant tend to lash out to feel strong.

2. ROH once again has issues with iPPV stream (NR)

And it won’t happen again. That’s because ROH is abandoning live streams for the PPVs, now going the on-demand route. Another step back for the cult indy.

3. Sheamus’ Brogue Kick Hotline: 1-800-FELLA (NR)

I’d rather dial 1-600-DOCTORB, because not only is the B for ‘bargain’, but they’ll keep the viewers from slitting their throats at the sight of Ginger Casper.

fella
4. Brooke Hogan’s “State of the Knockouts” address (NR)

The division has 2 really good feuds with Taryn/Gail and Mickie/Velvet. Seriously. Sadly, they have NeptoHulk out there to suck the air out of it all.

5. Miz as a babyface (7)

23 weeks and counting! By reaching Michael Jordan’s number, Miz continues a tradition of being possibly the most inane babyface in WWE today.

6. Sheamus as a babyface (6)

Except for maybe this guy. The lame Broguester has been on the list for eight consecutive weeks, and he gets more angle-related entries than Miz.

sheamus
7. Dolph Ziggler’s World Title reign ends in first defense (1)

While I disagree with this being on here, it does seem to highlight the contempt for Del Rio, who WWE seemed to have lost faith in as a hero in record time.

dolph
8. TNA doesn’t pay for Zema Ion’s medical bills (11)

His online fundraiser fell $23,000 short of the needed $30,000, and TNA still hasn’t stepped forward. Come on, guys, you want a good public face, don’t you?

zema
9. WWE App overpushed (9)

I haven’t downloaded it yet. I’m missing all of the midcard ring entrances and forgettable backstage interviews. Why do I hate myself so much?

mobile
10. Stephanie McMahon’s acting (3)

To be fair, not every writer is a good actor. Look at SNL for instance. And like SNL, not every writer is a good writer. Like, well….you know who I’m talking about….

steph
11. Tony Dawson (NR)

Matt Striker may have been annoying and smarmy, but at least he knew wrestling. Which is more than you can say about this ignorant Ken doll here.

dawson
12. Bo Dallas as NXT Champion (10)

The Frank Stallone of wrestling (well, no, Frank had SOME personality) reigns atop NXT. He just makes his brother look that much more fascinating.

dallas
13. Sting promises a new Main Event Mafia (2)

So far, he’s got Kurt Angle, but who else would really fit? Scott Steiner? Hey, if he got involved, I could certainly stomach another faction. FAAAT ASSES.

sting
14. WWE lead writer David Kreizman quits, third lead writer to leave this year (NR)

Is Vince being THAT hard on creative? Hey, here’s a solution: KEEP LETTING PAUL AND ZEB SHAPE AND MOLD THE SHOWS! It’s really that simple.

pencil
15. Taz on commentary (NR)

I have no feelings about Taz one way or the other. I just think it’s funny that Sting appears to be impaling his head with his ‘pencil’. I’m amused so easily.

    “Ginger Casper”??!! Damn, that’s friggin’ hillarious!! O:-)

    • Down With OPC says:

      Someone else has to have some sort of Ghostbuster hotline now to capture Ginger Casper. Who ya gonna call?

      • Raven7309 says:

        “Luigi??”

      • Bender says:

        Damien Sandow? The thought of him with a proton pack is already making me laugh.

        • Thomas Moffatt says:

          Damien Sandow as Egon, Cody as Venkman, Truth as Winston now we need a Ray…

          • TK says:

            Santino Marella? He seems to be doing another aside PR stuff. And he does have Dan Ackroyd-like comedy in him, and both are Canadian despite not a lot knowing it! Also glad you noted the whole WWE creative deal right down to the point of having competent writers there like Heyman and Colter…but only consulting them?!

  2. Paul says:

    I have the “FAAAT ASSES” clip as my text ringer. It gets me every time. I usually silence my phone at work, but one day I didn’t and it went off in front of everyone.

    …Oh, did I forget to mention that I’m a teacher? My students lost it, and it took weeks before I felt that I had regained their respect. Good laugh, though.

  3. Thomas Moffatt says:

    Bo Dallas should be a heel end of – if they wanted to put the strap on anyone it should have been Adrian Neville, still lacking a bit mike wise but his in ring ability makes up for that, a lot like Daniel Bryan when he broke though in WWE

    Sheamus is turning into the new Kane – if you need someone to do the crap bits and the crap feuds he’s your go to man… shame, if they want him as a face turn him into the guy who doesn’t give a hoot

    Nipple H – just shocking, then again she’s the biggest heat machine in the business plus one of the most universally hated characters – sadly I can see the Vince/Trips/Nips Power Struggle dominating RAW for a few months to come

    Tony Dawson – he is a horrible distraction for Michael Cole; WWE have become concerned that Cole has “won” the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Award for Worst announcer for the past four years so they try to remove anyone better – JR dropped from NXT, Tony Dawson brought in to replace him, NXT play by play man Byron Saxton busted down to ring announcer, Josh Matthews dropped from Smackdown!, Matt Striker released, Regal kept off the main shows, Miz as a colour commentator, Maddox placed on alternate colour with Regal for NXT and this week Alex Riley replacing Striker on Superstars when the obvious choice is William Regal!

  4. BaltoJim says:

    In a fair and just world:
    AJ to NippleH: “I’m you! Except I’m only pretending to be psychotic, of course…”

  5. ScMcS says:

    What is up with Brooke Hogan’s reaction? WHAT IS SHE GOING FOR!? Sorry for caps, but that’s, honestly, the worst image of someone trying to “act” I’ve ever seen, and I’ve watched 4 of her fathers movies.

  6. Chard Telephone says:

    Just wait until Vince passes, you’re going to miss these times when Trips and Nips appeared only on few segments, in future they make sure Haitch appears every nanosecond of WWE-Product, including Commercials.

  7. unhappy camper says:

    I wouldnt mind seeing more of Stephanie on TV just for the shallow reason that I find her kind of hot

  8. ReallyPeteGas says:

    I’m with you on the Ziggler 1 match reign, and I don’t get how it’s on here 2 weeks in a row. The double turn wouldn’t have really been possible without the title loss.
    I can’t believe Brogue Kick Hotline isn’t #2 (1 deserves it’s spot rightfully).
    And how did Vicki eating 900 calorie burgers like a savage on the same screen with a guy who should be selling 2 year plans for T-Moble on the same screen be knocked off after 1 week?
