Four weeks till Wrestlemania, two matches officially announced and final, two unimportant mullti-man matches and an overcontrolling (and mostly aging) heel faction similar to Immortal led by an ego-driven ex-champion. Good enough comparison for you?
I have no doubt that some of you may bury me for my comparison, and though it may be extreme, it does not excuse WWE for stretching out story lines long enough to reach Wrestlemania, instead of working on building the culmination of feuds so that they could reach a finale, and story lines so they can reach an ending.
Tickets for Wrestlemania are still available as of this post, but maybe WWE could help themselves by assuring their universe of fans by assuring John Cena will have a match, then dangling a carrot in front of the promotion’s bonafide draw. Putting a moratorium on the predictable revenge between Randy Orton and Seth Rollins.
Failing to identify the obvious participants of the Intercontinental Title match and Andre the Giant Battle Royal doesn’t help that they also lack layered story lines that fans can get emotionally, with the exception of Damien Sandow staggered executive assistant relationship with the Miz.
Its nice to see Sting about to wrestle in a WWE ring, but no matter if its Hulk Hogan or Triple H in a four or six-sided ring, it diesn’t make sense to turn back the clock and talk WCW when half the WWE Universe wasn’t even born when WCW existed. Maybe some more WWE Network footage showcasing Sting’s feud with Hogan, Flair, maybe show him buddying up to Robocop.
I could continue to nit pick everything that is wrong with the buildup of Wrestlemania 31, but then I might do just as good complaining about how stupid I thought the King of The Mountain match idea was.-KOP
