Wrestling Fact Or Fiction
October 24, 2013
A belated Happy Birthday to my super-fantastic Mom, Evelyn, who turned 76 yesterday! Love ya Ma… Let’s do this…
1. You are excited for Sunday’s WWE Hell in a Cell PPV.
FICTION: I’m more excited for this than I was, say Bound For Glory, but too many pay per views in too short a period can be a little overwhelming… and is. Hope it goes well for the WWE and I’ll be watching on Monday night, via DVR, but I’m not too hyped on the whole deal. Might change before Sunday, but I doubt it.
2. Following the events of the TNA Bound for Glory PPV, you have more interest in the TNA product.
FICTION: A good show, but nothing has changed. They still are WWE Light and seem second rate compared to the WWE in my eyes.
3. Randy Orton will walk out of the WWE Hell in a Cell PPV as the WWE Champion.
FICTION: They’ve dragged it out too long. If Randy wins, we riot!
4. TNA planning to return to Universal Studios (possibly long term) is for the best.
FACT: Being on the road costs too much and they need a home base to operate from if they want to stay alive and kicking. Universal was and is a good deal for them and they should be happy to be back there again.
5. John Cena will NOT win the world title at Hell in a Cell.
FICTION: He’ll win. Del Rio will be buried. And everyone will get pissed off, but still tune in on Monday to say in unison, “The Champ is here!”
6. Kurt Angle “turning down the TNA Hall of Fame” on PPV makes the entire thing look bush-league.
FACT: Could you picture anyone coming up on the stage for a WWE Hall of Fame Induction and turning it down on stage? It wouldn’t happen. TNA is the minor leagues and this is just another example that shows it.
7. You believe that the WWE Network will actually launch sometime in 2014.
FICTION: I’ll believe it when I see it and not a moment before. Hope it’s sooner rather than later, but I’m not holding my breath.
8. Big E. Langston will be a success as a babyface.
FACT: He’s a good performer with talent and charisma and was over like a mo-fo in NXT. There’s no reason he can’t get over in the same manner with the WWE Universe and be a solid, mid-to-upper card face. If it doesn’t work, it’ll be the WWE Creative and their screw-up because Langston definitely has that “it” factor about him. ‘Nuff said!
And there you go.
