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. The whole McMahons/Vickie angle, where no one knows who’s in charge (NR)
Well, thanks to the July 8 Raw, we *do* know who’s in charge. Strap in, kiddies: this million-dollar angle’s going to take us to WrestleMania XXX!
2. Sunny auctioning off chance to spoon with her (NR)
In 1998, 15-year-old me would hold up an armored car to get the money needed. Now it’s just a sad concept set forth by a sadder person.
3. Payment issues result in number of TNA/Gut Check releases (NR)
Another case where TNA just looks amateurish and unprepared. The only consolation is getting to use this sultry shot of Miss Taeler Hendrix.
4. Ricardo Rodriguez suspended for using fat burner (NR)
It’s not his failure that’s Crap, as it is the double standards. Hell, Jack Swagger got ARRESTED, and kept his WrestleMania payoff!
5. Sheamus as a babyface (6)
See, last night’s use of him is fine: a rough and tumble competitor who fights hard. Maybe Dolph Ziggler will inherit the crappy babyface mantle.
6. Miz defeats Ryback by match stoppage (NR)
Really? The brutish bulldozer has to have the referee save him from Spaz Luhrmann? I’m good at suspending disbelief, but come on.
7. Stephanie McMahon’s acting (9)
A number of ballots feature votes for “anything with the McMahons”. Enough voters are specific enough to rail against the amateur dramatics of Nipple H.
8. Four former FCW/NXT talents list off charges of mistreatment against Bill DeMott (3)
WWE says its investigating the claims, but notes in their statement that the complainants are bitter. Well, that’s encouraging. Remember, be a star!
9. Bo Dallas as NXT Champion (11)
Probably not a good sign when 2-on-1 heel beatdowns on Dallas draw cheers. Maybe they’re training Dallas to be the next John Cena, who knows?
10. Brad Maddox (NR)
So the spaced-out urchin is now running Raw, in theory. That would explain the spike of votes for Maddox post 10 PM EST. I was wondering why.
11. Miz as a babyface (13)
25 for 25, as Miz continues to be Raw’s most annoying character next to Sheamus. As stated earlier, Dolph’s prepping to challenge both it seems.
12. Bella Twins’ argument with JoJo and Eva Marie (NR)
It was reported that the new divas are terrible in the ring. That’s a story about as surprising as a John Cena successful title defense.
13. WWE App overpushed (NR)
But if we only watched the App, how would we see commercials for USA’s pretentious shows about pretty people in clothes we can’t afford?
14. Tony Dawson (14)
Maybe WrestleCrap Radio can get Tony to say “Promotional consideration FOR THE WIN”? But we shouldn’t befoul our departed friend Lord Alfred.
15. Briscoe Brothers not retained by ROH, even though Jay is World Champion (1)
This one was diluted a bit as the World Title field shaped (London, Kendrick, Steen, Elgin, Cole, etc). But still, what a bush league move by Sinclair.
