STATE OF THE 'E: The End Of The Road

Rate this Entry
Well, well, well... we've come to that point. Haven't we? Let me first start by saying that this is my[U][B] final blog on eWN[/B][/U]. Yes, I said it rather bluntly but, that's realistically the only way I could say it. I just would like to thank everyone who's followed me from the beginning or might have forgotten about me or anything of that nature.

It was because of you guys that I did this. Many of you may be asking why I'm done on here. Well, simple fact is, its overcrowded. Blogs get posted sometimes within minutes of each other and lets face it, if its not on the front page, no one reads it. And within this atmosphere, no single blog ever gets its time to shine.

With that being said, I'm not telling people to stop writing, just saying whats on my mind about the current state of blogs on this site. So many "top ____ lists" and so many of the same thing gets frustrating. So, I'm choosing to bow out before my time here is unwelcomed.

On a more positive note... this is my FIFTIETH BLOG here on eWN and I could think of no better way to go out. Now, the theme of this blog will essentially be like the rest of my blogs to date. I pick a topic randomly and discuss it for a bit. After that, you comment and tell me how worthless I am. :) Either way, lets get this going!!

[U][B]THE USE OF "OLD" WRESTLERS ON RAW/HEATH SLATER:[/B][/U]
With the 1,000th episode of RAW coming in a few short weeks, we've been seeing the return of a bunch of older wrestlers to the show so it can be promoted as such.

I get it. I really do. But, now Heath Slater people are thinking he deserves a push BECAUSE of it. Wait, what? What has this guy done to get a push? Job out to the stars of old? That's what a normal jobber did back in the day and they didn't get "special" treatment because of it. He doesn't deserve a US or IC title shot because he's on TV every week "jobbing".

The kid should be grateful that he's on TV at all and in the role he's being used in. Vader, Cyndi Lauper, Wendi Richter, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Sycho Sid... and more in the next few weeks... that's the honor in itself. He doesn't need anthing more. Stop saying he deserves it until he can PROVE it.

[U][B]NXT'S SECOND COMING:[/B][/U]
Well, isn't this show a nice kick in the crotch? The first episode of the new NXT aired last week and it was rather awesome! A ton of the guys from FCW have come up to the next level and are getting some much needed exposure! The... ambiance of the show is accentuated with them doing it at Full Sail University.

Not to mention that JR and William Regal are the announcers, Coheed And Cambria have provided the opening theme song with their track "Welcome Home" and one of my favorite wrestlers of all time, Dusty Rhodes is the GM!!

The way the show is produced as well seems to be experamental and working well. Now granted, only one episode has hit and they can easily screw this up BUT I feel we have an absolute winner on our hands with this show. Especially with all of the awesomeness that will be coming from the FCW crew into this. Keep an eye on it if it's in your market.

[U][B]MONEY IN THE BANK:[/B][/U]
This is shaping up to be kind of interesting, no? I mean... none of us wants John Cena in any type of main event but, it's been going on all year. Why the hell wouldn't they find some way to weasel him into it? We all know the outcome, Cena wins and challenges CM Punk for the WWE Championship at SummerSlam and wins to become an 11 time WWE Champion. *Yawn*.

That's horseshit. Other than that the PPV itself is shaping up pretty nicely. D-Bry and Punk get to go at it again, with AJ as special ref. Not to mention the SD! Money In The Bank match has some weird choices for competitors as well. Damien Sandow, Christian, Santino, Tensai and Tyson Kidd??

That can't be the final list... I fully choose to disbelieve that Wade Barrett, Cody Rhodes and Alberto Del Rio won't be involved in some way shape or form. Not to mention, there's still two spots obviously left open on the WWE Championship side of it. So, Rey Mysterio and who else? I don't know. But, it looks interesting.

[U][B]1,000TH EPISODE OF RAW:[/B][/U]
And that brings us to my final thoughts here on eWN... the 1,00th episode will be grand, spectacular and a huge letdown. For some reason, no matter what they'll do, everyone will complain. It's been said that the new WWE Championship will debut, a new set will debut, new theme song and also we get the new GM but with all of that, fans will still bitch.

It's also the start of their permanent three hour slot as well. I personally think great things are in store for THE 'E after they move to their three hour future and wonder what matches we have in store for us considering they're going to treat it like a PPV.

Well everyone, I'm done here. Have a fantastic time blogging on this site, I'll still be here approving them but I won't be posting anymore. Thank you all for supporting me and yelling at me here. So, for the last time...

Leave questions, comments, death threats, laundering options, feminine hygiene care tips, and chicken baking recipes below. Bbe good and be safe everyone.

See Ya' Soon Space Cowboy...

    Your blogs are slightly overrated, but that's probably due to the generic forum niceties. I still had fun reading them though. Good luck with whatever's stopping you from posting. I've had almost zero time for even the forum as of late, I know what it's like.

    Maybe you'll change your mind at some point, maybe not. Either way, best of luck in your future endeavours. Copyright infringement intentional.

    Well, it was definitely fun reading your blogs. The thing is, I truly felt the same way you do about how overcrowded the blog board was getting. And I know you never wanted to be the one to turn someone away, so everything got thru, even if it would have been better served in the forums.

    I also agree with your point about blogs not being on the front page, don't get read. I posted my final Abdominal Stretch blog, it posted sometime in the middle of yesterday, and it's already gone. It didn't even reach 1000 views this week. That's discouraging. But I guess it's difficult unless you get actual subscribers to your blog. So people know when you post.

    As for your wrestling points. You were pretty much dead on, as usual. I personally think Big Show wins MITB for WWE Title...and they HAVE TO HAVE TO HAVE TO come up with better star power for the WHC MITB match. Otherwise, it's looking like a complete cakewalk for Wade Barrett, or Alberto Del Rio. No one can honestly expect Tyson Kidd, Santino, or Damien Sandow to actually win that match, right? And it would be a shame if Tensai won it. I guess we'll wait and see.

    Well, Fellow Blogger, I bid you farewell. It was fun. Hopefully, I'll find it in me to not follow you out the door.

    Thank you for giving us so much awesome reading material.

    Sorry to see you go man... always read, even if I didn't always comment. Great stuff... Hope you'll still be around in the forums!

    I had to log in and leave a comment...you and DK write the best blogs on this site and I wish you werent leaving because now president of Cena's fan club ol Knox and the other kiddies are probably gonna take over and another fan of true professional wrestling bows out due to the pitiful state of 'E (see what I did there) but farewell and maybe I'll take up the reigns in the name of love of real wrestling...I see your leaving like Steve Austin leaving the E and Cena taking over..maybe I'm overreacting but you were definitely a prescence on the blogging scene...you will be missed

    Rob... Seriously... don't.

    I feel you on the overcrowded aspect. I am a VERY new blogger on the site, but I only felt that my blog was worth posting since it was an original take on something I hadn't been able to see in the vast majority of Blogs on this site. I thought a new idea might make things a little more interesting than what you said... the Top 10 lists that plague this site like the locust and frogs of Moses' day.

    However, rather than have a person who is VERY entertaining to read bow out of the game, just get together with the other moderators and trim the fat! I would much rather have you tell me that my blog is un-interesting and that I need a better concept, than to have to click 6 pages deep before I find Sudden Impact, State of the E, Blog Wars, or a few other select blogs that I actually care to read. Instead of giving the kiddies free reign to post 20 blogs about how "Raw sucks because Ziggler isn't champion (sorry DK, couldn't resist)", why not push us bloggers to put out better content? I would much rather read a blog that has valuable content than to skim through the bullshit and feel empty for wasting my time.

    And as for the "top page" comment... I sent you the one comment I have EVER sent to anyone on this site Rob because of what I have read in your blogs. I know you are a wrestling fan. I trust that moderators such as your self would choose great blogs to push out to the public... So why don't you guys choose the best 3 blogs to be "featured" on the front page, rather than just giving them to whoever post the last one. And instead of booting them out of that spot, have a vote among you moderators before actually removing one from the "featured" list?

    Just ideas, but dammit. Seeing a good blogger drop out due to problems that I myself hate kinda pisses me off. I'd much rather you guys tell people NO than to have quality bloggers get frustrated and disheartened by people posting the EXACT same blogs over and over... Lord knows I've read enough Cody Rhodes to the Main Event blogs for a lifetime.

    I usually dont comment but i always read everybodys blogs and i gotta say i always enjoyed reading your blogs rob. Surely there must be something you can do about this. Instead of having just 10 in the home page, couldn't they increase it to have 20 or even 30 so they could be more visible to everyone. That way each blog would have a bigger chance of being scene. Anyways good luck to you and whatever you decide to do.
