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. Dolph Ziggler loses World Title in first PPV defense (NR)
I admit, this one looks silly atop the leaderboard, given that it led to a much needed double turn. So much for Del Rio being the big Latin draw, eh?
2. Sting promises a new “Main Event Mafia” (NR)
This would be No. 1 if we knew for sure Kevin Nash was returning. But if it means more Scott Steiner, then you clowns voted for it for no good reason.
3. Stephanie McMahon’s acting (NR)
That horrid segment in which she pleaded with a stubborn Hunter was enough to make Raw viewers mistake turpentine for whiskey, perhaps willingly.
4. The Vickie Guerrero Hardees product placement (NR)
Pseudo-commercials on Raw are bad enough as it is, but involving three utterly inane characters in the name of unfunny broad humor is a bit much.
5. Triple H vs. Curtis Axel, June 10 (NR)
Someone explain the angle where Vince and Hunter are either struggling for power or worried about long-term health, or something. It’s as non-linear as puke.
6. Sheamus as a babyface (6)
I can’t wait til next week, when his Brogue Kick hotline is nominated. Then I get to write *two* Sheamus entries! Probably in the top five, too!
7. Miz as a babyface (9)
He came to play, and play he did, breaking The Undertaker’s streak! This might just be the year of the Miz. The anti-year, that is. Congratulations, Miz!
8. Alabama athletic commission imposes several odd rules for wrestling (NR)
Can’t use foreign objects without permission? All ring attire must be “clean”? Somewhere, Cowboy Bill Watts is retching in his ten-gallon hat.
9. WWE overpromotes the App (3)
You know, Raw was solid last night. Imagine how much better it would be if we weren’t inundated to download this apparently life-changing app.
10. Bo Dallas as NXT Champion (NR)
Has there ever been such a disparity of charisma between brothers? Bray Wyatt is gold, whereas Bo is as interesting as a rusted napkin holder.
11. TNA doesn’t pay for Zema Ion’s medical bills (NR)
It’s just beating a dead horse at this point. I know TNA doesn’t have WWE’s money and connections to rehab facilities, but still, this feels just a little bit wrong.
12. Kevin Nash stirs up CM Punk fans on Twitter (NR)
It’s easier to just ignore him and let him fade, rather than feed his warped mind. Do not feed the bear; he can buy his own food. As well as Grecian formula.
13. Shield’s first clean loss is on regular TV instead of PPV (NR)
This one won’t mean much, but with the old way of thinking, they could have made the first six man loss a bigger deal. But eh, que sera sera.
14. Curtis Axel’s push consists of fluke victories (2)
Well, he can win triple threat matches by being sneaky, and he can beat Sin Cara. Then again, so can every other half-assed-pushed heel in WWE.
15. Crimson, away for a year, has chance to qualify for BFG Series (NR)
He lost to Joseph Park, but still, it speaks to the thinness of a roster that Crimson can be MIA for so long, and still have a theoretical chance like this.
