Cena and Rusev comes back to TV at the same time and literally are just having the same feud Orton and Jinder are having.

It's one thing that cliche feuds are often repeated through WWE history at different times. Many story formulas happen at different times even if they are similar motions.

These are literally two feuds going on at the same time and there's barely even a reason as to why Rusev "felt provoked" or why Rusev even provoked. Now we have two foreign heels talking about prejudice and insulting the ignorant American culture, while Cena and Orton are trying to tell the world that America isn't the reason why you are hated, etc.

You shouldn't have two feuds like this at the same time!

Why are you making a bunch of irrelevant threads?
Two in a day is not a bunch, two is a couple.

So at least ask, "why are you making a couple of irrelevant threads?" :ayoade

You forgot the patriotic feud between AJ Styles and Kevin Owens over the US title ;)

:MAD

WHY DID YOU HAVE TO REMIND ME OF THAT!?

Although in all seriousness, that feud is a more downplayed variant of it, yeah Owens does crap on America here and there, but it's not the main focal point of their feud, it's pretty much a wrestling based feud, based on their big matches, with that as a downplayed theme, so it doesn't bug me as much, especially if the other backdrop of the feud is basically "who's the better wrestler?". It basically feels like how ROH might book a USA vs. Foreigner feud, the wrestling being the forefront with the more subtle hints as a compliment. The other two feuds are typical WWE feuds about foreign vs. USA where it's not about the wrestling at all but more so hinging on the foreigner gimmick.

Maybe will get a tag team match on Smackdown. Holler Holler playa.
If we see that it's vintage WWE, with the fact that Jinder/Rusev hate each other these days after they got sick of teaming with each other.

So it's pretty much 100% happening :vince2

The creative team is so lethargic they don't even realize they have 3 feuds with the same anti-American foreigner gimmick. Orton vs Jinder, AJ vs KO and Cena vs Rusev.:mj4

Cena vs Rusev is the worst simply because we've already seen this and it's the same feud that killed Rusev's momentum in the first place. AJ vs KO will at the least have a good match with one another; KO is an entertaining heel. Orton/Jinder had the opportunity to be interesting if they had Jinder hold resentment for people underestimating him because of his jobber position in the WWE instead of because of his skin tone and nationality. The matches still would be poor but at least it wouldn't have been another angry foreigner gimmick.

Because the writing team are a bunch of unoriginal, uninspired, lazy soap opera rejects. Their idea of a foreign heel is to hate America for no reason as if it's the 1960s. I said in another thread that they could have did better with Rusev. Show vignettes explaining that he was arrested because he was wrongfully accused of being a terrorist or something like that and he was in prison this whole time. Then, he'd have a reason to actually hate America and it goes with his whole short hair look. He could gather up his fellow inmates and fuck with Shane and Bryan until they gave him a title opportunity and proceed to fuck up Jinder Mahal and win the championship while moving away from that generic "I hate America" shtick. It's too easy, but the creative team are apparently mental.

American Babyface vs. Evil Foreigner. And two at the same time.

Because apparently this is still 1984.

:sleep:sleep:sleep:sleep:sleep:sleep:sleep:sleep:sleep
Before they fed him to Cena, Rusev was probably one of the best booked foreign heels in a long time. When done right, the evil foreigner heel can work brilliantly. It actually got people to want to root for Cena to shut the big Putin-lover up.

Which do you not understand? The definition of the word "same" or what the feuds are actually about?

Rusev vs Cena is about national pride and the USA being disrespected by Rusev.
Jinder is all about Americans hating him because he's brown and his feud with Orton is about Orton's dad being disrespected and Jinder being an asshole.

Just because uneducated, inbred, trailer trash 'Muricans chant "USA", during both feuds does not make them the same.
