Re: WWE 2011: Pushing the Boundaries
Night of Champions Review
Loved the WWE Divas Championship match between Kelly Kelly and Beth Phoenix opening up the show and Beth becoming the new WWE Divas Champion and hopefully with her as WWE Divas Champion, she will end up being champion until at least WrestleMania 28 setting up Beth Phoenix vs Kharma with Kharma making her return by Mania time
And I love how you advertised your next PPV for Hell In A Cell, and I hope for the HIAC PPV we actually get to see some excellent spots in Cell matches as well as getting to see blood and what not
Cody Rhodes not wanting Ted anywhere near this match, I can definitely see Ted turning on Cody later on or Cody ends up turning on Ted, either way I want to see DiBiase get pushed
Cody Rhodes retaining his WWE Intercontinental Championship against Sin Cara in what I thought was a great contest real back and forth where it could have been anyone's match-up, Cody comes out with the win and now Cody can restore the IC Title back to its former glory making the title mean something again like how it did in the early to mid 1990s
Regal getting a match with Cody and if he wins, he becomes the next #1 Contender for the IC Title, I hope Regal beats Rhodes on Smackdown
Kozlov and Santino becoming the new WWE Tag Team Champions by beating Otunga and Mcgillicutty, I loved it, and now I want to see Mcgillicutty break away from Otunga and become more of a singles star in the sense that I want to see Mcgillicutty get repackaged, send him back down to FCW and then bring him back under his real name of Joe Hennig, and give him the gimmick of being "The Perfect Son" giving him a gimmick similar to his father
Rey's interview heading into his match with Ziggler, loved it
Miz and Truth are a part of Big Johnny's security, they definitely deserve way better than that if anything, that is why I am hoping Awesome Truth ends up going for the WWE Tag Team Championships by facing Kozlov and Santino, but I have a feeling they are going to cost Punk
Ziggler retaining the WWE United States Championship against Rey in what I thought could have easily have been match of the night by far because of so many high-flying spots as well as so many counters and all of that good stuff just goes to show you that these 2 have chemistry in the ring but what was shocking was The Chosen One Drew McIntyre making his presence felt, making an impact by costing Rey the US Title by hitting the Future Shock DDT on Rey and then getting out of the ring with Vickie reviving the ref and Ziggler stealing the match, stealing the victory. Drew McIntyre is now going to be managed by Vickie but it will only be a matter of time before McIntyre lives up to his billing of being The Chosen One which means that he is in for a huge push and if he is, then I hope McIntyre ends up becoming a main eventer by the end of this year or into 2012 and then McIntyre can ditch Ziggler and Vickie
Mark Henry becoming the new World Heavyweight Champion, I can definitely see him becoming a dominant monster heel champion on Smackdown but my man Randy Orton should get a rematch considering he was the champion and was he even pinned? I don't think so, and I want to see Henry vs Orton inside Hell In A Cell but I can see Henry cutting a 15 years promo by saying how it took him 15 years to get to this point and how he is not going to lose his title anytime soon and that it is going to take another 15 years just to get this off of him
Triple H bossing the former Tag Team Champions was quite funny, but a good way to give them their rematch.
Now this is the match I was looking forward to, probably the most. Both men are great in the ring, so this should be good. Fast paced start to the match, getting the crowd involved right from the get go, which is always a good thing. Bryan going for the LeBell Lock quite early in the match shows that he is focused on retaining his briefcase anyway possible, but this match was never going to end that soon . I know Christian does do a few high flying dives out of the ring, but since he is heel I would have preferred it being Bryan who done the high flying, with maybe Christian dodging, and then hitting the reverse DDT. Good to see Christian focusing on the leg now, he’ll need to weaken the legs to get that Submission of his to work. Ramming it into the ring post would inflict a lot of pain and a good way to show Christian’s ruthless streak. Brutal shot from the chair on the leg, again showing how brutal Christian can get. Locking in the Cloverleaf at this time is a smart move, Bryan’s legs are pretty banged up, and realistically this should be over. The fact that Bryan made it too the ropes, you’ve shown that Bryan has a big heart and is determined to win this match and retain his briefcase, which shows he will be a World Champion some day. Nice way to end the match, countering the Killswitch into the LeBell Lock, could really picture that happening and happy that Bryan retained. Overall, this was a really good and well written match. It was a little short but I enjoyed it, it showed how ruthless Christian can get and how much heart and desire Bryan has. Good job.
But I want to see Christian as a more ruthless heel in the sense that he becomes more vicious and aggressive in the ring but also that Christian becomes more of an Ultimate Opportunist type heel similar to how his best friend soon to be WWE Hall of Famer Edge was, but Bryan definitely I can see him cashing in his MITB soon but at which PPV will he cash in?
WrestleMania? Long way away, but cannot wait to see how it shapes up
Del Rio retaining the WWE Title cements his reign as not being a fluke and Nash getting involved again to cost Punk, I hope you have Nash stick around longer until at least WrestleMania 28, and maybe we will get to see Nash in your Royal Rumble Match for 2012 and maybe he can have a WrestleMania match against someone
Maybe we will get to see a new nWo being formed with Nash, Miz, Truth and hopefully a heel John Cena by having Cena turn heel and become like the new Hollywood Hogan of the WWE
