Re: Lethal Lockdown Advantage
It sort of became a running gag that the heels always had the man advantage going all the way back to War Games. When it comes to the original War Games, I honestly can't think of an example where the heels didn't have the advantage. They said it was decided by a coin toss and I always used to joke that the heels would sneak in a two sided coin and it has been passed down from heel team to heel team, ha ha.
That's happened here with Lethal Lockdown as well, with 2010 being the exception, and even that one that got around by having Hardy get beat up and unable to get into the match right away to give the faces the man advantage. I mean it is more natural to have the heels in control of the match to build heat, which is why they do it that way. But it does sort of take the mystique out of things if the heels get the advantage every single time.
I wish they'd change it up though. Instead of doing the man advantage, which we all know is going to favor the heels, why not do a random drawing like the Royal Rumble? That way you don't know who is coming out and from what team. They could then probably have a situation where a face is facing three heels and has to survive the onslaught until he gets some help.
