Once again, WrestleCrap is back with its brand new, weekly interaction, in which Our Loyal Crappers decide what the worst in wrestling was for the past week. They can choose gimmicks, storylines, news stories, or anything else that constitutes “Crap”, and the votes are tallied in order to determine the WORST in wrestling…..at least for this week!
1. WWE overpromotes its movies (NR)
I understand WWE needs to make bank on its films, but no one’s watching Raw for 3 minute matches and a bunch of mashed-together trailers and plugs.
2. Miz as a babyface (9)
Wow, there’s a climb for ya. For the eighth straight week, Miz’s face run is ranked. Think the leap had to do with his shameless Ric Flair pandering?
3. Fandango (15)
Speaking of Evel Knievel leaps up the board, Fandango won’t wrestle if you can’t say his name right. If only Triple H had this complex in his career.
4. Old School Raw feels like regular Raw (NR)
Some legends showed up, Undertaker returned, and we got the old ring. Otherwise, there was nothing particularly special about the ‘special’.
5. Dolph Ziggler can’t win (NR)
That photo to your right is a rare sight these days. Dolph will lose 1000 straight before cashing in to become champ. Then no one will take him seriously.
6. Jim Ross embarrassed again in Oklahoma (NR)
WWE’s coming to the Sooner State? Well, you know what that means: time for a heel to get over at JR’s expense. Surprised Booker didn’t fire him, too.
7. Jack Swagger still not punished for arrest (2)
I kinda wish Glenn Beck HAD showed up, just to point out that the man playing Swagger broke the law, and gets preferential treatment from the company.
8. Donald Trump to enter WWE Hall of Fame (3)
A number of voters are still annoyed that the real estate mogul will be enshrined with the likes of Bruno and Mick. Eh, that’s the wrestling biz for ya.
9. AJ Styles, Son of Anarchy (NR)
“The Phenomenal One” has bottomed out, and now an unhinged degenerate with a motorcycle. Doesn’t he look kinda like Blade Braxton here?
10. Bleacher Report writer exploits Paul Bearer’s death (NR)
Hours after Bearer passed, writer Jack Windham wrote on why he shouldn’t be a kneejerk HOF inductee. Article was taken down, likely due to outrage.
11. Tony Dawson (NR)
WWE’s latest commentary abomination continues to ‘shine’, recently calling a double underhook suplex a ‘backdrop’. And he replaced Jim Ross, don’t ya know?
12. Why did Taz join Aces and Eights again? (NR)
Seriously, he’s the same Taz he’s always been, except with a slight biased lean toward his stable mates. And his turn was a big show-ending reveal!
13. Jack Swagger, Zeb Coulter break character to rip Glenn Beck (6)
Geez, it was two weeks ago, and people are still annoyed over WWE’s grasp at creating a senseless mainstream angle. Old wounds never heal, it seems.
14. The Robbies slowly split (NR)
Robbie E and Robbie T separated so slowly, R. Lee Ermey would compare it to old people, uh, copulating. Have the blow-off match and just end it already.
15. Brooke Hogan and Bully Ray (NR)
Fitting end this week, given how Bully’s due to turn on her soon, revealing he was using her for power and prestige. If they can’t make it as a couple, who can?
