STATE OF THE 'E: The End Of The Road

Well, well, well... we've come to that point. Haven't we? Let me first start by saying that this is my final blog on eWN. 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!!
THE USE OF "OLD" WRESTLERS ON RAW/HEATH SLATER:
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.
NXT'S SECOND COMING:
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.
MONEY IN THE BANK:
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.
1,000TH EPISODE OF RAW:
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...
