More Reasons To Watch WWE

Back in 2014 I wrote a piece about WWE suggesting that there was not much left to watch about it other than about 3 Wrestlers; AJ Lee, Paige and Sting. Well since then a lot has happened that has brought me a lot of joy and entertainment since then. While this may not have returned me to diehard fan status, there is a lot more interest in it for me once again and so I thought I would do a quick post highlighting all the good stuff recently and that there is in WWE right now. It’s not exactly an additional post; it’s more just a list of things as to why WWE is worth keeping an eye on.

Paige

Paige: One of the things that always grabs my attention in WWE is Paige. Not just because she is British and it’s great to see some British Wrestlers in WWE, but also because she is a very good wrestler, and storylines surrounding her are always enjoyable, and is one I like to keep up to date with.

Becky Lynch: While we are on the subject of Divas; there is one recent addition to Raw who sounds promising, and while I have not seen much of her, it’s still pretty good to have someone from the UK region who is also being touted as one of top performers right now. Also she has a fantastic sounding entrance theme/titantron.

Dudley Boyz

Dudley Boyz: While it has been a while since they were last seen on TV, as far as I am aware; It’s still fantastic for such a great team, especially from the late attitude era to be a part of WWE once again; especially seeing how child friendly it all is today.

The New Day: Albeit just for the things they say to the ring and backstage, The New Day are just funny to watch, and sometimes emulate.

Sting Champion

Sting: Wrestling is so much more fun when ting has something to do with it. Yes, he has been on and off since his debut, yes he has yet to win a single match, but merely his presence is enough to set off the audience. He does not even need to fight, he could just stand in the ring staring at the crowd blankly and ominous. But that’s not to say his wrestling is not Fantastic also, he is just a one of kind person who improves something by simply appearing, anything more than that is just another fantastic bonus. Also he is due to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year.

Undertaker

The Undertaker: The big resurgence (along with the word Resurgence) most recently is of course the re-appearance of The Undertaker in a more substantial way other than simply appearing at WrestleMania. The Undertaker remains my favourite Wrestler to this day, and much like Sting, his appearance alone is just Fantastic, and creatures an urge, a spirit to see more of him, and when he finally does make a much bigger appearance, it was all the worth it. Well, with WrestleMania now on the Horizon, it should not be too long now.

AJ Styles: The one thing that has me more interested in WWE right now more than anything is the arrival of AJ Styles. A wrestler who I have watched for many years in TNA is now in WWE, and it’s already looking like big things are being planned for him, what with him engaging with Chris Jericho in his first match. I am hoping that this will mean a WWE Title shot sooner than later, but I don’t want his career in WWE to be jinxed so quickly, as first he really needs to build up and show that he is worth it. But if Sheamus can do it in just a few months, why not Styles? In any case, it is just fantastic that such a high calibre wrestler like Styles is now in WWE where a much larger audience can see him, although I am not too sure about his Entrance Music, as I always preferred ‘Get Ready To Fly’.

GENEPOOL (All we need now is a return from Booker T – and possibly a few others – and WWE will be even better, possibly).

They’re Back!

2 09 2015

This past week I was away on Holiday. Due to me not being able to leave until Monday I was able to stick around to see who won at Summerslam between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker; the result of which I was really happy about. While I was away on holiday I played some Laser Quest (if that is the right terminology) with friends at a place in Horsham, and used the name GOLDBERG as my gamer name instead of the usual GENEPOOL. I even had Goldberg’s entrance music going through my head as I went in and left the arena. Overall I came 3rd in that round, and at the time was the 5th highest scoring player all day (even though I do believe I was knocked down later on).

Anyway, what has all this go to do with the above title you might be asking; well I don’t know if you saw my post this time last year when I said there were only 3 real reasons why WWE was worth watching anymore. Well, things have changed, now there is another – or should I say 2 more. While I was away on holiday I did not see much of WWE because I did not have access to a TV……….and frankly I didn’t really care. Then I heard some amazing news. I heard that Sting is going to be facing Seth Rollins for the WWE Championship which is Great News – time for Sting to take the one world championship he has never held. But while that is all well and good (I’m a huge fan of Sting), something else caught my eye while looking this up. It concerns the return of one of the Greatest Tag Teams in wrestling history. A team who have held over 20 championships together and have remained, despite their image as villains; fan favourites. After a 10 year absence from WWE (mostly because they have been wrestling for TNA), Bubba Ray and D-VonThe Dudley Boyz are back.

Dudley Boyz

I found the video of their return on YouTube after looking at Sting’s return and silent challenge holding the WWE Championship belt. I was thrilled by this appearance from them. I don’t know what this means for them or WWE; but the fact they’re back is incredible news. The one thing I found hard to listen to was their theme music. The Dudley Boyz have had some good themes; from tag team and singles completion in TNA, to Aces & Eights and even differences in music in WWE. But for me their best theme music is the Bombshell soundtrack by Powerman 5000. It packs the attitude that such a team requires and presents. I just think that a return like that should have had that soundtrack, or maybe they did and I couldn’t hear it due to the reaction from the crowd, who knows?

Despite their theme music though, the return of the Dudley Boyz is a reason to celebrate, it means that essences of WWE that made me start watching it in the first place are starting to make a return. Mix this up with Sting possibly challenging for the WWE Championship, plus the recent re-appearance of The Undertaker and revolution in the Diva’s division, and it all comes together to make WWE worth watching again (for me at least). Now there is more than just 3 reasons to watch WWE, there are several.

Sting Champion

GENEPOOL (“Get the Tables”).
