So i've been thinking...
First we had cena vs rock announced at the first raw after wrestlemania 27
months afterwards zack ryder gains fame by making videos on youtube the Z true long island story.
Fans worldwide watch his show and get a new favorite pet for the iwc to push on tv air time.
The wwe takes notice of it and start slowly featuring zack ryder, in several segments and promos of him we see john cena hanging around with zack ( the plan starts to take its shape )
After this the wwe sees that the ultimate prize for zack would've been the united states championship since it's a midcard tittle and probably the one they cared less about..untill just recently
zack and cena once had a match made by johnny ace as a social experiment. We all remember what this came out to be...cena won and he got his chance for the wwe tittle but as u know he begged laurinatis to give zack the chance instead, and so it was done, zack had a chance to face ziggler for the united states tittle at tlc last year. Zack triumphant won the tittle but lets not forget who won the social experiment match weeks before..
anyways 2012 came and we all were excited to see how this new masked kane character was gonna play out to be, the iwc rejoyced as kane was back to his old self and our boy zack ryder was now the us champ, but little we know that typically from the wwe they were gonna book zack ryder in a love affair with eve torres, pretty much the same attitude the wwe took with daniel bryan with both the bellas, gail kim and now aj lee.
WWE's corporative team thinks this way " OH they are young, loved by the interet bafoons lets put them together with a random girl and see how this plays out to be nyeh nyeh nyeh"
so they did that to zack, now the story of zack ryder's downfall begins.
Kane attacks him one time through a backstage area, eve assists it, cena comes in to his aid but kane evades the worst and escapes.
Zack is partially "injured" next week to compete and is scheduled to face jack swagger for the tittle, he does so and is easily squashed, the us tittle has not yet been defended ( or if it has remind me of it ) ever since jack swagger won it, and where have we seen more of jack swagger as of late? Superstars. so there's that
the wwe thinks that zack ryder was always a jobber and MADE to be jobber material that if a guy like him were to hold the us tittle, all of its prestigue and value would go downhill and so it would mean the same for whoever else gets to hold it.
So zack lost the tittle and every week we saw kane trying to get on cena's mind to fill in this "hatred" to embrace the hate. Cena however kept fighting back to show the little kids the following message "no matter how much they throw at u just keep fighting back" ( great way to show ur sponsors how to fight bully when ur actually carrying a anti bullying campaign wwe) - by including it on a storyline...so weak...
anyways zack kept being the "victim" and suddenly we saw less of zack and more of cena and kane, zack assisted the shows backstage each week in worst conditions than before, untill finally zack was pushed off the ramp in his wheelchair by kane, now the time has come. Cena vs Kane Ambulance match elimination chamber.
Result: Ta-da~ Cena won
Benefits: Builds up cena's character to face the rock at mania 28, Promotes wwe's anti bullying campaign
Mistakes: US tittle lost prestige, Kane's masked character wont be taken as seriously as before when he returned, Zack ryder lost a whole bunch of crowd reaction and overall interest from the iwc.
So imo this whole rivalry was aimed to ways that i could see where the wwe was trying to go at but at the same time, they sacrificed
1: A tittle
2: A young man's career
3: The return of an epic figure we have been waiting for a decade to resurface
All for this...Cena vs Rock at mania
All of that just for this ^
Then we ended up with a nice popcherry being said eve torres declaring that she wasnt zack's friend to begin with that she used him just to get to cena.
So on top of all of this the wwe YET AGAIN shits on zack ryder by making him look like a poor fool to make anyone be under cena's boot and kiss his ass.
The wwe wouldnt actually be carrying eve torres heel turn if they didnt put cena next to her to over hear the entire convo she had with the bellas, and now...haha eve is still featured for house show live events as a freaking FACE!
so the wwe doesnt give a crap about who we love.
This was the story of a poor zack ryder who's fame reached even the ears of a robbie E match at tna Impact and even interrupted one of the rock's promo at a monday night raw months ago when he was being supported more than ever before.
So lets be honest here guys. Would you feel as excited to see zack ryder back in the ring now as u would've months ago?
In my opinion NO
You may have different thoughts but one cant deny, the wwe used ryder, kane and the us championship all in just for cena to get over even MORE.
