Welcome to my Random Thoughts, Wrestling fans.
Today, I'm going to discuss the WWE and the Championship picture. You see, now that both RAW and Smackdown are one big Super Show, add to that, the WWE Diva's Championship and the WWE Tag Team Championship are unified, it got me thinking.
The Intercontinental Title And United States Title Should Be Unified
It should retain the name WWE Intercontinental Championship. But if I were booking, I'd give a certain prestige that a secondary singles championship SHOULD have.
The person who holds the Intercontinental Championship should, by rights, be the Number One Contender to the WWE Championship. It could lead to some interesting feuds.
The WWE Championship and World Heavyweight Championship Should Be Unified
I would even combine it and name it the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. And for fuck's sake, get rid of that awful WWE Championship belt. I like its previous design circa 2002-2005.
There's no need to have two World Champions when the entire WWE is one roster. And for that matter, two secondary champions on one roster.
I like where the WWE is going with The Shield. They're putting these guys over strong and with the way these three guys work, they're deserving of it. Dean Ambrose is even better on the mic than I had thought. I always knew he was a good worker back when he was Jon Moxley in the indies. But I never truly appreciated how well he can cut a promo. Seth Rollins is ALWAYS great. When he was Tyler Black in ROH, I knew he had the "it" factor to be huge in this business. Roman Reigns comes from the great Anoa'i family. The son of Sika will make a HUGE name for himself. He's a solid worker and a good promo guy who doesn't try to do too much on the mic.
Dolph Zigger is simply amazing. And he deserves to be World Champion. This guy oozes money with his in-ring work AND his promos. He's Ric Flair, Curt Henning, and Shawn Michaels wrapped in one.
Ryback should not be World Champion. I love that he's in the Main Event scene and he's getting over. But I just don't feel he's that guy. Maybe if he gets some more meaningful feuds over the next year, he can be. And he does have PLENTY of people to work with. When I see him, I see a guy that works with the guy who draws the money. I think he'd be a better heel than a top babyface. But I'm just a mark. What the hell do I know?
I really like Team Hell No. I didn't care for their name at first but that grew on me. Daniel Bryan and Kane work GREAT together.
Put "Macho Man" Randy Savage in the damn Hall Of Fame already. If WWE did, who would induct him? If I were a betting man (well I do play poker so I guess I am a betting man), I'd bet that Ricky Steamboat inducts him and Lanny Poffo accepts on his brother's behalf. And I'd be so happy for "Macho Man" that I'd shed tears. One of the nicest men in the business.
I kinda miss Prime Time Wrestling when they had a round table discussion about the WWE. I'd like to see a program like that which discusses the events of RAW and Smackdown. And Jim Ross should be the moderator.
I love that show "Legends Of Wrestling."
And finally, can we get some female wrestlers who actually know how to wrestle? I'm glad Sara Del Ray is training at NXT. I'm looking forward to what she produces.
And those are my thoughts.
