I'd like to start this week's blog by following in the actions of many wrestling fans across the world and just say what sad news the death of 'Macho Man' Randy Savage was. It came completely out of the blue and best wishes have to go to his family and friends. I'm not old enough to remember Savage's era but i've seen a few of his matches, particularly the famous Wrestlemania 3 bout between the 'Macho Man' and Ricky Steamboat. A huge loss for the wrestling world.
I read on the ewrestling news website this week about some comments that Bret 'hitman' Hart made regarding Drew Mcintyres current position. And i echo all sentiments! Hart's comments were in relation to Drew Mcintyre being on Superstars that last few weeks. In my opinion, Mcintyre should without a shadow of a doubt be on the U.S title scene. He's a former I.C champion and tag team champion as well as having the esteemed honour of being hand picked by Mr Mcmahon himself. So why the relegation to Superstars? This to me look's like somebody in creative ain't the biggest fan of 'the sinister scotsman'. When i heard that Drew had been drafted to Raw i took it as bad news. I'm a fan of his and in my humbled opinion could have seen him gorw into the main event spot should he have been left on Smackdown. Then again we've seen other superstars nearly be in that exact position in the past. MVP is a prime example. I see being drafted to Raw as a promotion for a lot of superstars, however not for Drew. I see this move as a de-motion, as a form of relegation back down to WWE's televised development show. Potentially a wasted young talent.
I was critical of Michael Hayes last week after i heard that he was back on television. The criticisms were mainly because of all of the racist stories a few years ago, mainly with Mark Henry of course. However after watching Superstars last week as well as this week i have a sudden change of opinion. I see that he's now the manager of Tyson Kidd. Well after this week's Superstars that relationship is in the balance. Although i believe that it's a positive sign for the WWE that they're coupling experienced veterans and some of the WWE's young guns. After watching Hayes he look's like a great ringside coach for Kidd. I also read on ewrestling news that WWE management are thinking of doing more of this, possibly bringing in Arn Anderson as a manager. This can only be positive for some of WWE's younger stars!
I don't often watch TNA or Impact Wrestling as it now is but heard good things about Sacrifice. So i tuned in and i have to admit i was quite entertained. Kazarian vs Max Buck was a good quality match as was AJ Styles vs Tommy Dreamer. I also liked the look of Crimson who fought Abyss. After watching him i thought that a match between him and the WWE's Sheamus would be a cracker, should an invasion take place. Lets not go there on a topic about an Invasion storyline haha. I wasn't too keen on the main event between RVD and Sting however you've got to respect that Sting is in his 50's and long matches on a frequent basis are out of the question. It was enjoyable though and might have made a regular Impact Wrestling viewer out of me.
Sunday 22nd May 2011 we have Over the Limit. I'm looking forward to John Cena vs The Miz in an 'I Quit' match. I believe that we could be in for a great fight between those 2 in Seattle. I can only see one outcome to the World Heavyweight Championship match - RKO, Orton retains. Possibly with some form of interference from Mark Henry and maybe Sheamus. I'm also really excited for the match between Sin Cara vs Chavo Guerrero. This could be an understated cracker! Good to see Chavo being used in the right capacity again too.
Lets hope for a great Over the Limit and once again remember a true Wrestling Legend in the Macho Man Randy Savage.
