Re: WWE 2009 - Bridging the Gap
A Quest for Competition!
This past Friday night on Smackdown, newly crowned WWE Unified Tag Team Champions, The Miz and John Morrison, declared that they are embarking on their self-proclaimed Quest for Competition. Things kicked off with a bang as the duo laid into the much loved tag team, The Hardy Boyz, yes that’s right, Boyz with a Z! Deciding that they would be the perfect team upon which to kick start their Quest, Miz and Morrison ridiculed the Hardy brothers. After interference from both Matt and Jeff, even though they were fighting each other, WWE.COM immediately sought out the Tag Team Champions for further comment. This is what they had to say to Joey Styles!
The Miz: Did you see that? Did you see that? How dare they just run out there and take our spot light!
John Morrison: I saw it alright! And they won’t be getting away with it either.
Joey Styles: What do you mean by that, John?
The Miz: Yeah, what do you mean by that?
John Morrison: This Monday Night on Raw we are challenging the Hardyz to a tag team match!
The Miz: We are?
Joey Styles: You are?
John Morrison: Yes! Yes we are! If they want to jump us like that then they can do it in the ring!
Joey Styles: Well technically it was only Jeff who jumped…..
The Miz: That doesn’t matter, Joey! John is right. They interrupted the inauguration of our quest and for that they will pay. Jeff, Matt, we don’t care if you’re in the middle of a little family spat right now. You get your asses to the ring Monday night and we’ll meet you there.
Moments after they had said their piece, Morrison kindly bumped Mr. Styles in the shoulder before stalking off with his partner. But Joey insists that it was worth it to get the scoop. There you have it folks, the challenge has been issued. Tune in for Raw on Monday night at 9/8ct to see if the Hardyz accept!
The title situation on both shows could be considered a bit of a mess right now as both Edge and Randy Orton are involved with the same storyline. One insider source claims that creative has no idea what it is doing until the draft is reached and the rosters are solidified. However, another top source says that everything is heading on course and that storylines heading into Backlash will tie up all the loose ends heading into the draft.
Speaking of which, there seems to be much inner turmoil about where to place certain superstars. Vince McMahon has been calling for a complete and total overhaul of the rosters. This is partially the reason why he has been written off TV completely along with the rest of his family. Given this news, we can expect to see TOP names in the company switching brands.
Furthermore, Vince wants to keep a tight lid on who the new General Managers will be. Rumors have been swirling that former employee and ex nemesis, Eric Bishoff could be headed back to the WWE for a second run as GM of Raw. Other names thrown in the hat have been Paul Heyman, Shane McMahon and even JBL. But one source claims that the current picks are, “two people you would never expect.”
Finally, as seen at Wrestlemania, Triple H was punted by Randy Orton and is set to take a long absence from Raw. Many reasons have been cited but the main ones seems to be that he has been pulled to rest up, spend time with his young children and most importantly to learn the ropes from father-in-law, Vince McMahon. There is no specific timeline set for his return but WWE hopes to balance out the loss with several returns from other missing WWE stars.
