WrestleCrap Power Crappings Week XXV

25 Submitted by on Tue, 09 July 2013, 14:27

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.

  1. Adam Cota says:

    Any reason to post Taeler Hendrix pics is completely justified…

  2. Raven7309 says:

    The Sunny one is truly depressing. To think that Tammy is the same woman who, at the peak of her popularity, was the most downloaded celebrity in AOL history, to this. Hell, she was just inducted into the WWE HOF a couple of years ago, for crying out loud!! Unfortunately, I see her winding up dead in a few years. I pray to God that I’m wrong, though.

  3. Ryan says:

    Ugh. What are you doing TNA?! Its like they took all those great ideas and successes from last year and drowned them in Lake Stupid.

    I thought they might finally be stepping up, but sadly it seems it was only a breif period of light in a long, dark tunnel

  4. MJA says:

    I’m guessing the no.1 spot next week will be: ‘Dumb-ass smarks try to ruin the Wyatt Family’s debut with “Husky Harris” chants.’

  5. patricko says:

    So fantastic that so many of the top 15 were all intertwined last night, when the mcmahon’s left Vickie’s future up to the APP users, and then gave Brad Maddox a promotion.

    If Shamus and the Bellas could have somehow been involved, whilst the MIZ was on commentary, it would have been perfect.

  6. Thomas Moffatt says:

    Brad Maddox for Next Week’s Number One – you replace one annoying GM with an even more annoying GM? What next Gilbert Gottfried to replace Cole on commentary?

    • Raven7309 says:

      No, for the love of God: “NOOOOO!!!”

    • Joe T says:

      Actually I could handle Cole replaced by Gottfried in exchange for Maddox replaced by just about 90% of the companies workers (giving it a 90% since every work place has it’s freaks). I’d even take the guy who has been sitting in the basement of Titan Towers guarding the video library since the 80’s (poor bastard) over Maddox.

  7. Thomas Moffatt says:

    The Glad Game – I’m Glad Nipple H and Vickie didn’t form an “alliance” as lovers and try to take over the company hiring Triple H in a demeaning capacity (that’s the only way he could see his kids, see) making him top sympathetic babayface/doofus whilst Cole is the sole person aroused by the thought of Vickie and Nips, the new power couple take things to a new level making out during Ziggler’s challenge against Del Rio causing Ziggler to barf and lose the match because he is too sick to continue…

  8. Down With OPC says:

    It took this list for me to find out Taeler Hendrix got released. Man, now I’m bummed.

  9. Brad Maddox says:

    Haters gonna hate

  10. Sir Thomas says:

    I was going to comment on how “Brad Maddox as Raw GM” was going to be the next “Miz/Sheamus as a babyface”, but then I heard Taeler Hendrix is gone from TNA now. THERE IS NO WRESTLING GOD!

  11. Tommy B Rude says:

    I hate to be accused of defending Miz, but I think we passed the point of people actually caring enough about his babyface run to hate it a long time ago. It’s become memetic and people are just keeping on the list because its been there so long already. Time to let it go.

  12. Thomas Moffatt says:

    Why is it that NXT seems to have more appealing stars than the main roster? Give me Zayn, Graves, Ohno and Neville over a number of the “stars” any day…

  13. Escape says:

    I’m looking forward to the Power Crappings next year in July. Can’t wait until “Dancin’ Dean Ambrose” and “Bray Wyatt as a babyface” are on here week after week.

    • Personos says:

      And in five years when Vince dies. No .1 spot will be given to “Triple H as Champion of Everything”

  14. TerrierChad says:

    I can see how the app thing may get annoying but I find the overuse of Twitter far worse. I suppose it doesn’t help that every TV show seems to mention it every 5 seconds but still, give me the app plugging over the Twitter plugging any day of the week.
