Hello everyone, Y2JRAY here, this is my first blog of what I hope too be many on the big topics in the WWE. I have written a few other blogs before but now I am going to try my luck with trying to make a legitimate series. Now these won't be weekly reviews since we have so many people writing weekly reviews already, I will only be blogging when I feel that the WWE has made a huge move, whether a positive or negative move, and give my example and reasonings as to why I believe it was a good or bad move for WWE. Let me know what you all think of the first blog and hope you all enjoy it.
Ok now to the topic at hand, Extreme Rules. I will focus on three things coming out of the PPV, Cody Rhodes, Layla, Brock Lesnar.
Ok starting with Cody, at first I thought it was a bad idea to have Cody be intercontinental champion again because I want to see him feud for the World heavyweight championship, but when you look at it WWE has decided already that ADR will be feuding for it because he won that number one contender match by beating Sheamus, and that Christian will have a title shot also because team Johnny won at Wrestlemania. So why would they have Cody wait around for what would be about three or more months atleast until he was placed in the title picture, Smackdown really has no good upper midcard faces to feud with for him worthy of a PPV spot so hey slap the title on him for another couple months so we can keep seeing him, then take it off when it finally is his time.
FINAL DECISION: good choice by the WWE to give him the title back, IMO they should have just kept it on him the whole time but wha can you do.
Now on to layla. I was stoked on Layla's return....just not this way. Now hear me out here, Layla and Michelle were great as heels and great together so I wanted the divas division to go down like this, Beth and Kharma feud with Kharma coming out on top, then laycool returns and begin a feud with Kharma and maybe a fatal fourway with beth Kharma and laycool at wrestlemania but meh thats just a dream. So, instead she returns as a face by the looks of it, and so we have no Kharma...? I think the WWE is going to get a ton of heat for this one but I don't think they had control over this. Beth was 'injured' the Bellas had the title and it was all set up for Kharma to return, but she didn't and I honestly believe the plan was for her to return but then she decided she still was not ready and so the WWE had to do something to please us somewhat and give us some explanation as to why the bellas were given the title.
FINAL DECISION: Glad to see Layla back, but I think the WWE might have been screwed by Kharma here, I just don't see why they would set it up perfectly for her to return, then throw Layla in there.
Ps: If anyone knows the original storyplans please comment them below I would love to know if Kharma was part of the original plans or if the WWE was trying to tease us.
Now to my final topic of the blog Brock Lesnar. Really, really really wwe WHY did he lose to John Cena! I do not understand this one at all, they set him up as the legitimizer and the beast of the WWE, he dominates the entire match and then a tipical super Cena match happens where he hits the AA and then gets the pin, I could not believe what I was seeing. I just do not understand this I don`t know where they will go from here with the storyline and I could not be more glad if Cena does need time to heal his arm. I was finally not starting to hate him and then WWE pulls this. I honestly just do not understand this decision.
FINAL DECISION: WWE screwed up bad, first time I have been legit mad at the result of a match in a long time probably since ADR won the rumble with Santino being the last eliminated. I am however interested I guess to see where they go now, but I was very angry at the outcome of the main event after what I thought was a great PPV.
