Even watching half of RAW is sorta painful now a days.
I tell you, I could almost swear Vince secretly hated wrestling or something. I know some are thinking in a mocking way "oh yeah, he must really really hate the thing that makes him the most money in his life and go out there to brag about it." How many times did he try to venture into something else and have it blow up in his face (body building, football league)? Now you have him in a retro frame of mind, AGAIN prioritizing people with looks which could mean excess muscles (Lashley, Masters), height (Khali, Kozlov), or outright bimbos (any diva search winners, runner ups) all of whom had little or no genuine interest in "wrasslin'." But who of them would say no to the prospect of a contract that probably pays $50,000 & up and not have to go through the traditional breaking in to their industry those who genuinely want to be there would have to endure. They only want to use the WWE as a catalyst to do other things much like how the Rock and Stacy Keibler used the WWE for and walked away without looking back.
Negative outlook aside, let's look at the general negativity from tonight. Khali made Jeff Hardy look like an inexperienced jobber with a toy belt all the while Khali wrestled like fecal matter as usual. Val Venis apparently got beaten down by a "wounded" Umaga. Yeah, like even one of the 7 year old Cena fans didn't know who'd come out of that one looking good. Sean Morley (Val Venis) should have someone else make decisions for him as he evidentally doesn't have the sense to realize the WWE will keep him in his outdated, pornstar gimmick and job him to everyone whether it be on their internet program or their cable TV program. 4 or 5 minute matches on either show makes no difference in that he's still a very low priority. Surprised to READ that Cryme Tyme actually lost for once and to TWGTT. Well, I guess that means some poor booker/Hollywood hack is going to lose his job as that actually looks like something gone right. Lord knows the WWE gets to where they don't like that to happen.
In all, I sure do miss the Attitude era, and Fox's 24 on a non wrestling night when it wasn't hard to get good quality TV viewing done in a week. Just because it's occured to me as a thought means I should probably worry about it happening for real. But if Vince ever gets cocky enough to believe that the fans only wants his sense of humor as their entertainment, he might up and run one of his shows without an actual wrestling ring in the building one day. Just a thought though.
