Re: Lance Storm shoots on WWE burying Styles
I enjoyed Cena's promo but agree that it was one sided.
I'll have to respectfully disagree with Lance Storm. If WWE wanted to bury Styles, they didn't realize he was a seed that just kept growing. He was arguably the best performer of the past 12 months. I'm happy he had a successful title run and was positioned as the face of Smackdown. I just wish all roads were leading to the main event at WM 33. Shane/Styles is not the marquee match I had in mind. I have nothing against Shane but Styles didn't bust his ass for a year to fend off shadow punches. Maybe there's time for Samoa Joe or Nakamura to be called up.
We can only hope. The event is called Wrestle
Mania, so one would hope they'd have the smarts to put on at least one match that showcases exceptional wrestling amidst the old farts and headline-grabbers. Even if he's not in the main event, AJ needs to be on that show with someone who can shine with him, not someone he has to work to elevate. But I can totally see Shane wanting that spot just to prove that he can hang with the best, which would be an absolute and total waste of AJ's talents.
