It’s before Thanksgiving, so I’m deciding to serve up “The A-Train Rant Special – Survivor Series and the WWE.”
LET ME BEGIN WITH THIS…
- Survivor Series 2013 was the worst PPV I’ve seen in a long time. Very bad start for the “Road to Wrestlemania 30.” Very bad.
- Every match was predictable on who was going to win the matches…EVERY ONE OF THEM.
- The major championships (WWE and World Heavyweight) are being unified at the wrong time, should have at least waited to the Royal Rumble to pull of this trick and set it up to happen at Wrestlemania.
- As much as people love John Cena and Randy Orton, no one wants to see these two go at it in the main event…at Tables, Ladders and Chairs in December. These are two men that don’t even use a table, ladder or a chair unless Cena is the one receiving that pain. Orton only uses chairs, and he should because he’s a heel (bad guy).
- The direction of the company (in my humble opinion) is not going in the right direction. I’ve seen on wrestling boards and social media who say the same thing. My biggest question is: Why did the WWE end the Attitude Era? It’s time to introduce it again to this younger generation…with that said…
- Many WWE superstars are participating in various campaigns that pertain to children and try to connect with them as positive influences. To me that’s a major contradiction. It means that many heels (bad guys) are heroes to these kids, and they want to see them. Here they are promoting something positive, yet in the ring or on TV they are negative…yes, I understand that these guys are characters, I get that. But a young child liking a heel, what does that say? Bad guys are good, right? So what is the real reason for this direction?
I’m done with this. This is what I can think of for now, that’s why it’s a rant. More to come before Thanksgiving.
