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. TNA cut all of those talents before deciding Brooke Hogan was overpaid (NR)
I’d really love to know how much more Hulk Hogan’s Grown-Up Spooge (slightly paraphrased from Louis CK) was making than actual, hard-working talents.
2. Botched ending/ref error in Raw mixed tag match (NR)
This warrants a Krusty the Clown/horrified while smoking a cigarette image: “What the hell was THAT?!” It’s actually cringeworthy to rewatch.
3. Smackdown rumored to be moving to three hours (NR)
Because the audience isn’t burned out enough, obviously. Oversaturating the talents even moreso is clearly good, and shouldn’t weigh against rights fees.
4. Ryback bullies SummerSlam catering staff (NR)
For an encore, Ryback and Woim will hassle the Little Rascals, and try to sabotage their soapbox derby car. See, Goldberg would never have done that.
5. Ric Flair apparently inebriated at SummerSlam panel (NR)
Even Flair apologists are finding it hard to defend his continued dignity-shedding. WWE was apparently furious at Flair’s behavior, and tried removing him.
6. WWE Total Divas (2)
A dip in the ratings for Real Housewives of Stamford, both here and in the Nielsens. Perhaps the novelty of “celebrity problems” is wearing thin on the audience.
7. Miz as a babyface (4)
Miz has done it, having been useless and annoying for thirty-one straight weeks. That makes him like Baskin Robbins. An annoying Baskin Robbins.
8. Tito Ortiz swerves Main Event Mafia, joins Aces n Eights (NR)
Welcome back, Russo! Wait, you mean he hasn’t returned at all? Oh, well then who booked the predictable and pointless swerve then? Anyone?
9. McMahon Power Trip (5)
The Corporation is back! Or is that the McMahon-Helmsley Regime? Either, we’re doing the time warp once more, but it isn’t the same.
10. The Bella Twins (11)
Not sure how into the ‘sheets you read, but WWE considers these two the ‘top’ Divas of the company. As opposed to AJ and Kaitlyn, mind you.
11. Miz’s hosting performance at SummerSlam (13)
Apparently, all you need to do to be a host is dance with the divas, and generally act like Ryan Seacrest with an inner-ear imbalance. Who knew?
12. Bo Dallas as NXT Champion (9)
You realize all three champs (WWE/World/NXT) have fathers that wrestled? At least Dos Caras and Bob Orton’s sons don’t look out of place as main eventers.
13. Epico and Primo repackaged as Los Matadores (NR)
The cousins are from Puerto Rico, where bullfighting is illegal. That won’t deter WWE, who will shoehorn any stereotype into the show that they can.
14. World of Sport Wrestling not returning to British TV (NR)
The iconic wrestling program, which once featured Dynamite Kid, Davey Boy Smith, and Dave Finlay, is back. Shame it’s not being televised like it should be.
15. Tony Dawson (NR)
By virtue of his appearance on Summerslam’s pre-show, Dawson ekes his way back onto the Crappings. It just wasn’t the same without him.
