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. Baltimore fans chant “Husky Harris” at debuting Bray Wyatt (NR)
I always wondered how a city could cheer a double-murderer as a star linebacker. And then last Monday reminded me, oh yeah: they’re all sociopaths.
2. The Vickie Guerrero job evaluation (NR)
Because more McMahons equal more ratings, right USA? If I want to see a wankfest, there’s torrents I can download. And even then, no thank you.
3. Randy Orton wins “All Stars” Money in the Bank (NR)
The only thing that could’ve silenced Philadelphia more would be the shock of signing a good goalie. That WWE, they know their audience.
4. Brad Maddox (10)
8:02 PM EST, July 15: Maddox arrives, I channel surf, get engrossed in MLB’s home run derby, don’t turn back to Raw. Just letting you know, WWE.
5. Ryback is now a whiner (NR)
Remember this character quirk six months from now when they turn him into a bad ass babyface again. WWE’s hoping that you’ll forget.
6. John Cena makes Mark Henry submit decisively (NR)
I guess Mark Henry doesn’t have a bevy of sick children whom admire him. If he did, he’d never, EVER give up. Right Cena?
7. Miz as a babyface (11)
26 for 26, and he made it easier on himself this time. I guess WWE expected a pop in Philly when Miz had Heyman kicked out from ringside. Yeah.
8. The McMahon Power Struggle (1)
Let’s be honest: power struggles haven’t been cool since Austin and the McMahons had their ladder match in 1999. They have all sucked since.
9. The Bella Twins (NR)
A campaign began in these comment threads to get them on here. And thus, the “professional celebrities” have made it. Go grassroots efforts!
10. TNA releases Matt Morgan (NR)
Finally, a TNA entry! Morgan asked for his release, but it speaks to how TNA misused an athletic giant who was willing to work hard. Alas.
11. Sheamus as a babyface (5)
Looks like some sympathy for his MITB injuries bought him leniency this week. Get well soon, big guy. So we can mock your awful acting again.
12. Dolph Ziggler’s unfunny disruption of Alberto Del Rio vs. Sin Cara (NR)
Where is it written that every babyface has to be an unlikable assknuckle? WWE doesn’t paint broad strokes; they use a friggin’ paint roller.
13. Four former FCW/NXT talents list off charges of mistreatment against Bill DeMott (8)
Very little has come out of these accusations, ever since WWE’s “what a bunch of whiners” press release. Maybe hoping it goes away?
14. Payment issues result in number of TNA releases, including many Gut Check participants (3)
The bleeding seems to have stopped, and we can hope TNA has their ducks in a row. But anyway, here’s one last look at the lovely Taeler Hendrix.
15. WWE Total Divas coming to E! (NR)
Cameron is the only one depicted, to my knowledge, that isn’t dating a WWE wrestler. I wonder what much of the highly-shallow E!’s focus will be on?
