I don’t wanna take anything away from WrestleMania, as I am very excited about it. This time a year is about the best in the wrestling business and being reminded and rewarded for years of being a loyal viewer, but there was one angle on Raw (keep in mind this is mid show) that really bothered me.
I didn’t care for the way the Orton and Punk confrontation ended, nor the Edge Del Rio, as I felt they both left the crowd flat at the end, rather than wanting more. But the one that really sticks in my craw ( am I using that right)… is The Undertaker Triple H face off.
First thing is first, Shawn Michaels should never have been involved. They had so much heat and intensity going with both mens entrances, that putting Michaels in there, while it did create an initial pop, really took away from the feud. Having Undertakers gong interrupt Triple H’s water spit was brilliant, the crowd loved it. At the point, they could have easily had Triple H after a brief pause with the crowd going nuts, spit his water in Takers face and have them go blow for blow until someone, maybe even HBK broke it up. End it with a throat slash and crotch chop and BOOM the crowd is hotter than ever to see this match.
Second thing wrong, the other option they could have taken, was when Triple H asked HBK why he would win Sunday and then looked back at him. I assumed HBK would peel off his shirt and show a referee shirt. It wouldn’t have made a ton of sense story line was but the crowd would have eaten it up and it would have made for an interesting twist match wise. Would HBK call it down the middle and if and who would he potentially superkick during the match.
I am excited about this match up the last thing I will say is that, WWE did a great job of a build without any physical action between the two men but this was time. There was far too much mutual respect going on. Might be a good drinking game to play. Go back and watch that segment and take a drink everytime you hear the word respect. We get it, you don’t have to make it that obvious they respect each other.
I am looking forward to the match, however I don’t think creative did enough to create that added heat that this feud deserves. Lets all hope for the best.
