The Abdominal Stretch: Nothing Catchy, Just Pure

Welcome fans of the wrestling world, universe, and beyond. The Saviour here bringing more perspectives that are just, Pure. This is the second post with my new format to create more discussion and bring more opinions and perspectives to light.
Without further adieu, let's get started.
Why the John Laurenaitis/Teddy Long Angle?
OKay, in my opinion, John Laurenaitis is very annoying. He's a very weak, and dull wannabe McMahon. And I see how they're keeping Teddy Long around which means that they're going to continue this feud for who knows how long. I can see how this ends. Teddy continues to sabotage Laurenaitis until another match is made where Teddy can have his show back, yada yada. It makes no sense. Obviously, Johnny Ace is going to play the try to screw everyone, heel GM. And it would work if he wasn't such a sore to the eyes and ears. I'm giving this a thumbs down, because it's just so painfully obvious that this will end with us coming full circle.
Should TNA Have a Second Show?
I do variety. It's plain and simple. And I'm not going to just completely forget about TNA just because it's not the most popular story going. When watching Impact last week, I thought about it and while they have a lot of work to do if they ever want to really be legit or even be taken seriously, I think one thing that would work is a second show. Even if it's a one-hour show in an odd timeslot like Saturday at 6pm or something. They spend so much time on major segments on Impact and honestly, 2 hours isn't much time. They can focus on just wrestling, recapping Impact, and do a little story building, like with the TV Title, or Knockouts Tag Teams, etc. It can be a lot like WCW Saturday Night...which I loved, even though it never featured anything major. It was very enjoyable to watch. It couldn't really hurt, could it?
Is Lesnar/Cena Really the Way to Go?
This is not going to be popular, not at all. It seems if I say anything bad about Lesnar, it's like walking into a church and denouncing Jesus. But the reasoning behind this question is this. Cena is obviously not going to be popular for a while. So why did they bring Lesnar out to seemingly be aligned with Johnny Ace? That was going to make him an instant heel. I guess it makes sense from a "Keep Cena the Top Face" standpoint, but Lesnar is still new. It will take some time before he receives the boos the way Jericho does now. But is this really the pairing that should happen now? And of course, it didn't take long for WWE to shove Brock down our throat with the outlandish move of bringing the whole roster out to separate him and Cena. It also didn't take WWE long to realize that Brock makes Psycho Sid sound like a promo expert, so they conveniently cued Cena's music after half a sentence. His interview was even funnier. And finally, Brock botched, fattening and bloodying Cena's mouth. Maybe he's a little rusty. Boy, I can't wait to see him in a match. It'll be Golberg-Style Botch City.
Should It Be the End of Guest Hosts?
I personally thought it was classless for Fat Ass and Unfunny, Will Sasso to come out like Hulk Hogan. I was pleased with the crowd for booing him. And I wish someone would Smack Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler for their little jabs at Hogan. Very unnecessary. However, the guest hosts played a roll when they first started doing it, but now, over two years later, just give it up. Do a quick backstage segment if you cut a promotional deal, and move on with the show already. They wasted our time with The Muppets, and the Psych guy, now The Three Stooges. WWE, please, PLEASE stop wasting our time with the guest host.
Well, that concludes part I of this week's Abdominal Stretch. I hope you continue to enjoy the new format and I look forward to your comments. Well, as long as their logical and discussion worthy. Don't what I used to do. Don't bash my blog just because my opinions aren't the same as yours. You know this is a good blog in terms of writing, format, and content. The rest is all opinion, and there is nothing that will change that.
Thank you for reading. Have a great week and be safe everyone.
