Wresting Fact Or Fiction
August 15, 2013
As usual, the statements and questions come from 411mania.com. The answers and opinions. They belong to me. You know the drill. Let’s do this.
You would read Lex Luger’s auto-biography.
FACT: I love to read wrestling based books and Lex has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. I remember when he first started and followed his career to the end and even though, based on reviews, he doesn’t really touch on anything too controversial or spill any dirt on anyone, it should still make for some good reading. I’m looking forward to seeing what the “Total Package” has to say.
Chris Sabin will lose the TNA World Title this week at Hardcore Justice.
FACT: Sabin is a fantastic wrestler, but Bully Ray is the top heel in TNA and the stipulation for this match says if Bubba loses, he never gets another title shot. I know this is TNA and stipulations mean about as much as a promise by President Obama, aka “nothing at all”, but Bubba is too good and too hot to keep out of the title picture, even in kayfabe terms. Bubba is getting the belt back.
Sheamus taking time off with an injury will be good for him long-term.
FACT: Right now, he’s stale. He needs to take a break and we need a break from him. In the big picture, this injury could be a blessing in disguise. John Cena needs to take time off too and give a break before we all want to commit Cenacide!
Michael Cole will make it to the top of the Middle Palisades Mountain.
FACT: He’s with JBL. He’ll make it or else he’ll never hear the end of it and JBL will make his life (clothesline from) hell. Go for it, Cole!
E! should not air a new episode of Total Divas against SummerSlam.
FICTION: Maybe it doesn’t make sense to air a WWE show against a WWE pay-per-view, but I doubt that it’ll hurt the viewership of either program. E wants ratings and WWE wants people to watch SummerSlam. Everyone is happy.
Triple H will turn heel at SummerSlam.
FICTION: Why is HHH even involved in this match? Cena and Bryan don’t need him to be a part of their match to make it great one. They’ve got it covered. HHH will be the ref and call it down the middle, thus pissing off Vince and Brad Maddox. And we’re getting a new champion.
There will be a new WWE Champion after SummerSlam.
FACT: Look at Cena’s elbow. He needs to get that treated and take some time off. And the best way to do that is injury angle and losing the title. So Bryan wins the title at the pay-per-view. And Orton? Well, we’ll just have to wait and see.
SummerSlam will be the best WWE PPV event of 2013.
FACT: WWE has had some great pay-per-view shows this year so far, even though the follow-up shows (RAW and Smackdown) have been hit and miss. I think the winning streak will continue and this event will be the biggest and best so far. It looks great on paper. Now they just have to live up to the hype and make it happen. With the talent and matches involved, I think it can and will happen.
And there you go. I’m out of here for now. Take it light!
