SmackDown Women’s Division
Dead. With Beth Phoenix at home licking her wounds, SmackDown is left with only two babyfaces. When your options are Tiffany and Kelly-Kelly, the only place WWE Women Champions Lay-Cool can find any type of competition whatsoever is Monday Nights.
Why not just unify the WWE Womens and Divas titles and have these women compete for one title on whatever show. Stop wasting the fans’ times with nonsense.
New Boy Toy
Not talking about Shawn Michaels, but Dolph Ziggler who has recently captured the eye of “The Cougar” Vickie Guerrero. Yeah, she’s no Courtney Cox.
Dolph Ziggler’s whole gimmick has been an utter failure. And I’m not talking about Mikey! I’m talking about first coming in with this “Hello, I’m Dolph Ziggler.”
The Rock put it best, “Who in the Blue Hell is Dolph Ziggler!?”
When did introducing yourself become a gimmick? He wasn’t being arrogant, Dolph was just being polite.
Dolph also failed having Maria Kanellis as his valet. To no fault of his own, WWE Creative would not allow Maria to turn heel. You can’t have a heel hook up with a babyface and expect it to work. It made no sense. Maria could have turned heel and begun a program with Melina, but WWE once again didn’t know what they were doing.
Dolph Ziggler was then given a new submission. A Sleeper Hold! As much as Dolph resembles “Mr. Perfect” this is not the 80s, no one does sleeper holds anymore, let alone as their finishers.
And now WWE wants to pair up Ziggler with Vickie Guerrero? It only worked once and that’s because Edge was already an established World Champion main-eventer. Have we forgotten how well Vickie’s services helped out Eric Escobar? It actually took me a minute to recall his name!
Pairing Dolph Ziggler with Vickie Guerrero will prove to be another failed experiment if Ziggler does not improve on his mike skills!
Hornswoggle. Enough said.
Why is Hornswoggle still wearing that D-X shirt? It’s just a reminder of when D-Generation-X was at its lowest.
Drew McIntyre and Teddy Long
Teddy Long suspended, stripped the Intercontinental title, and then fired Drew McIntyre. And a week later, Drew came in with a note from Mr. McMahon reversing Long’s decision? Who’s the GM here? Teddy Long or Drew McIntyre?
Lately, it feels that Drew and his magical letters from the Chairman of the Board, who hasn’t been seen since WrestleMania, are running the show.
At Over the Limit, Drew lost the Intercontinental title to Kofi Kingston, the rightful champion, and then went on a tantrum by defacing Teddy Long’s office.
Instead of being reprimanded for his actions, Drew came out with another magical note declaring that Matt Hardy, for assaulting Drew after his match at Over the Limit, be suspended indefinitely.
I’m sorry, I seem to recall Drew almost ending the career of Matt Hardy on three occasions. During a tag team match, Drew stopped the head of Matt Hardy against the steel steps; Drew attacked Matt during a backstage interview; and then Drew maliciously attacked him, which pushed Long to fire him.
Yet, Matt Hardy gets suspended for a simple Twist of Fate?
Honestly, Drew McIntyre does not deserve to be in the position that he is in. He has not EARNED to be in the position that he is in. He lacks the charisma of a WWE Superstar, and he lacks the Heart. At WrestleMania XXVI, while the other 9 competitors of the Money in the Bank ladder match came out sporting new wrestling gear for the biggest PPV of the year, Drew came out in his regular wrestling gear.
As for Teddy Long, Vickie issued a match consisting of Dolph and Chavo Guerrero against Christian and Hornswoggle. Who gave Vickie the right to start issuing matches? Isn’t that Teddy Long’s job? Why is he not being consulted with these matches?
Drew McIntyre lacks the passion to be a WWE Superstar, not once caring that he was the Intercontinental Champion. Drew would be better off on another wrestling show. As for Teddy Long, there is no respect from the higher ups, and especially his fans. There’s a time and a place to listen to what your boss has to say, but he shouldn’t bow to every ruling without fighting it.
Both would be better off released from the company.
