(One of the nice things about Attitude titles was that you couldn't just assume that the champion would always retain except at a PPV. The only person to win a top level title on RAW in the last 3 years was Ziggler when he cashed in the MITB. Speaking of missed opportunities with guys currently languishing in the midcard.)
And I wouldn't blame last night on Cena as the match was overbooked to hell. The psychology was all over the place. Multiple times it was made clear Harper & Rowan would not let Cena escape the cage... so Cena attempts to leave the cage 8 or 9 times instead of trying to pin Wyatt (which he's already done successfully at WM).
Barrett, Cesaro, and the Usos are all being pushed, but they're not really involved in any feuds. Barrett is a cheap heat magnet, Cesaro is just kinda with Heyman now, and the Usos haven't really had an angle in years.
My hope would be for an extended Bryan/Cesaro program, leading up to the return of Lesnar and a Bryan/Lesnar program (with Bryan working off of Heyman in the promos
I get that Roman Reigns has The Look, I get that but I've underwhelmed by his moveset, especially his finisher, and have heard nothing from him mic-wise. I like Rollins' in-ring work a lot better. Ambrose does nothing for me.
Bray is far and away my favorite current wrestler. Don't care that much about the rest of the Wyatts.
I am completely enamored by Dean Ambrose. He's got so many small nuances you have to watch out for- his facial expressions, in-ring gestures, his selling. There are just so many little things you can watch out for in an Ambrose match to be entertained.
And he can play any type of character. He's known for playing psycho/creepy heels, but I've been impressed with his Ricky Morton-esque face-in-peril stuff he's been doing recently. He's not the most technical of guys, like Bryan, but he's got a great mind for the ring, kinda like CM Punk.
He also seems to be a genuinely nice guy who is having the time of his life right now, and I root for people like that. I love that the WWE finally seems to be coming around to signing and pushing guys who made their names on the small circuits, instead of only wanting to build up guys they developed themselves.
What they really need is a dynamite technical wrestler to go back and forth with him through the summer, to showcase Bryan's skillset instead of keeping him as the scrappy underdog always running scared of bigger men.
but it is worth noting that HHH has been in the 2 best matches of the year so far.
NXT Takeover was a fantastic show. But Sami Zayn will be 30 next month, and I fear the WWE are not maximizing what little peak physical condition years he has left.
I am a Bo-liever. I can't wait to see what they have in mind for him.
Rollins has really broken out as a performer in the last couple of months. Still, Ambrose would have been the more obvious one to turn - he's always seemed a little unhinged.
Batista's outrage on Twitter after Bluetista was awesome, especially rewriting his bio as #wwejobber. His return was not really welcome, but he's redeemed himself.
wrestlers can go into their 40s in peak-ish condition. the main reason it's not more common right now is that a lot of the guys in that age bracket have made enough money over their career that they don't have to.
But aren't they numbed up on a million painkillers to get them to that point? Perhaps I am lumping Sami with the Daniel Bryan/CM Punk ROH crowd, where the ethos and personal politics are different. Bryan and Punk are both banged up by early/mid-30s, and their lifestyles aren't exactly conductive to the long-term rigors of professional wrestling. I know Bryan is no longer a vegan but still.
And while it's easy to think of the typical WWF/NWA brawlers who lasted a long time (Sting/Flair/Hogan/Undertaker/etc) It's really hard for me to think of a high flyer who worked steadily into his 40s. RVD's the only guy I can think of off the top of my head, but he's had long hiatuses and had a reputation for being lazy in the ring.
it writes itself.
I'm not sure if professional wrestling has ever had a method actor but there is one now.
