For all who have continually knocked WWE for poor storyline building (Including myself at times) Monday Night Raw proved completely otherwise.
The fact of the matter is this, the Bret Hart storyline has come together absolutely perfectly. Sending out reports Bret broke his leg. Covering it up with a car accident which MANY thought was the kayfabe. And then people thought it was desperation that they would have the match regardless only to have it all culminate to Bret taking the cast off and showing he was fine and dandy....WWE knows how to build a proper feud.
Another example is Undertaker and Shawn Michaels. I personally hated the idea of a rematch but then as I thought more on it, it dawned on me. What if they put on another great match? What if they change the spots all together and tear the house down all over again? All the what ifs that come to mind build the anticipation and is why WWE is pushing for it again. They have the best build up for this match because its personal, its epic and it is the most anticipated match this year at Wrestlemania.
I know a lot of Cena haters will bash this but I don't care. Batista and Cena are building up this feud very well. Batista's jealous and envious nature is something that may be truthful deep down. He may actually feel that resentment towards Cena. Batista is a phenomenal heel and should have turned heel a long while ago. I wonder if WWE is going to allow Batista to beat super Cena though.....it would be interesting to see John finally give up and become a heel. All that aside however, this storyline is very well done. We can only hope it will translate into the ring for a great match.
The Edge and Jericho match is going to be phenomenal. Many think that Edge is going to win but, I'm not ready to jump on the bandwagon yet. Need to wait and see. Edge turning face has gone extremely well and Jericho is the best heel in the business. There is no comparison I have said this many times and will stand by it till someone else comes along. (Sheamus?) This is going to be a great match. To veterans who hold the crowds emotions in the palm of their hands? Honestly TNA may have better tech wrestlers but none compare to these two on the microphone and charisma.
Speaking of Sheamus, I am not surprised Triple H is wrestling him at Wrestlemania. He obviously thinks Sheamus has a future as do I. But does Triple H lose to him to boost his career? That is why I am interested in Wrestlemania this year. Text book story lines that make you think hmmmm what if? Despite many people who think this is an off year i disagree strongly. This is great for WWE and there is a reason why they get so many viewers, because they know how to put together good stories
I know I do not comment on TNA as often as WWE, but that is because TNA is struggling to stay afloat. Even with the appearance of Rob Van Dam and Jeff Hardy the ratings were still low compared to a Raw show that Vince pretty much threw to see if TNA could hold its own. Until I see better story building and until Hogan and Flair stop trying to relive past glories, I can't take the company seriously. Sorry, but just can't.
