10 Of The Most Corny WWE Angles

10 Of The Most Corny WWE Angles

I will be the first to admit that there have been many times I have been embarrassed to be a WWE fan. Here is a look back at ten angles that were so corny, I hoped nobody walked in the room as they played out on WWE television.

We all understand that the WWE is entertainment but there are times where they go so far off of the radar, you have to wonder who exactly they are trying to entertain. To be fair, we don’t see goofy angles like these much today. Yet back in the 80s and 90s, they began creeping up fairly often. In Vince McMahon’s efforts to think outside of the box, he wound up miles away from his intended targets. Here are ten angles that while fun to discuss now, weren’t so fun to watch as they played out.

WWE Says No To Kurt Angle

by

Kurt Angle’s dreams of returning to the WWE as a conquering hero will have to wait. A recent report indicates that while Angle would like to finish his career in the WWE, Vince McMahon and Triple H are taking a pass.

Mark Madden reports and Dave Meltzer confirms in the newest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the WWE are not interested in re-signing Angle. According to Meltzer, Angle was not only told no once but was told no twice by the two head honchos. Angle was reportedly blown off by Triple H and went over his head to the Chairman of the Board.

“Angle then called Vince McMahon, but McMahon, playing good cop/bad cop, said that HHH makes the talent decisions. Madden reported that HHH wasn’t happy that Angle tried to go over his head. Angle pushed the idea of returning on a schedule similar to what ..click here to read more , ,

The Undertaker Ice Bucket Challenge Video

by

I never in a million years thought I’d see this one coming. The Undertaker has reappeared after going A.W.O.L. since having his streak broken by Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30. The Undertaker has resurfaced as part of the ice bucket challenge with a mysterious video that you would expect from the dead man.

The Undertaker is arguably the most protective of his character in the pro wrestling business. Rarely do you see this man out of character. While he is out of character here, he still keeps it mysterious. The lights are kept dim but you could hear what I would guess is his little girl’s voice in the background having a great time with her daddy and the challenge. Check it out for yourself!

As far as an actual update or status on the Dead Man that is unknown at this time. The rumor immediately after WrestleMania was that Taker would ..click here to read more

Dean Ambrose Should Beat Brock Lesnar For The WWE Title

by

I try not to jump on the bandwagon but this Dean Ambrose bandwagon is rolling full steam ahead. The last few weeks have convinced me of one thing. The Lunatic Fringe is the guy who should beat Brock Lesnar.

It was never meant to be this way. A few weeks ago when Randy Orton pinned Dean Ambrose the message was clear. His push was going to be capped. There were no future plans for Ambrose other than a series against Seth Rollins and a nice spot in the mid-card. He wasn’t at Orton’s level, he wasn’t at Rollins’ level, he wasn’t close to Reigns, and he certainly was not in Lesnar’s league. That has all changed.

Ambrose is the breath of fresh air this company has been searching for the last few years. The rotation of guys in and out of the mid-top spots has been disappointing and uninspiring. Even CM Punk’s ..click here to read more , ,

Alberto Del Rio Tells His Side Of The Story

by

The controversial WWE firing of Alberto Del Rio is getting interesting. Alberto Del Rio spoke out for the first time since his release and the former WWE superstar’s recap will certainly not help relations between the WWE and the Latino market.

Alberto was fired a couple of weeks ago seemingly out of nowhere by the WWE. Rumors circulated and details were quickly confirmed regarding the incident. The short story is that the social media manager of the WWE made a racist comment about Alberto which got back to Alberto. ADR confronted the employee who refused to apologize and was slapped for it.

Things heated up over the weekend when Alberto made an appearance at Triple Mania. What does this mean for Alberto’s non-compete? With Triple A coming to the United States, can Alberto be their franchise player? What happens next? Will there be a lawsuit?

Alberto appeared recently on a Mexican morning news ..click here to read more

Hulk Hogan Wants One More WWE Match

by

The Hulkster is at it again! The only person that thinks he hasn’t seen the last Hulk Hogan match is Hulk Hogan. Hogan is not ready to say the word retire just yet and his mind, he has one more match left in him and wants it in a WWE ring.

Hogan appeared on the Matthew Aaron Show recently where he claimed that he has one more match left in him. The Hulkster has one goal in mind and that is to wrestle in a WWE ring one more time. According to the Hulkster, it is not a question of whether he can go, it is a matter of putting the match together.

“Brother, my goal is to perform in the ring again, it’s not if, it’s when, I’ve been training like crazy, my back doesn’t hurt at all, my back’s perfect, (Hulk has had 9 back surgeries) now I’ve finally got ..click here to read more

Ronda Rousey Meets Ric Flair At WWE SummerSlam 2014

by

What happens when arguably the greatest pro wrestler of all-time meets his female counterpart in the MMA world? Ric Flair and Ronda Rousey met for the first time at WWE SummerSlam and Middle Easy cameras captured that magic moment for all of us to see.

This is a very cool video as Middle Easy took video of Rousey and her friends throughout the night at SummerSlam. What makes the meeting between Rousey and Flair so special is that Rousey and her friends travel in a group known as the 4 Horsewomen with Rousey of course known as the Ric Flair of her group.

I am not a big Ronda Rousey fan but I did come away with a more favorable opinion of her after watching this video. Rousey is a big WWE fan and it was great to see her having fun as a “person in the crowd” at SummerSlam, cheering her ..click here to read more , , ,

Daniel Bryan Not A Fan Of The Brie-Megan Miller Storyline

by

Daniel Bryan is not known for rocking the boat yet even he is not happy with his current angle with wife Brie Bella and he isn’t afraid to tell you. Bryan was recently asked about the angle and the former champion spoke for most of us when he called the storyline flat out “stupid.”

I can’t imagine watching RAW last Monday night who didn’t groan at the new twist in the Stephanie McMahon-Brie Bella feud. The new twist was a revelation that Daniel Bryan is having an affair with his physical therapist Megan Miller. Immediate comparisons were drawn to TNA’s Claire Lynch angle although I think that is a bit of an exaggeration. Regardless, the new layer was not well received within social media and it shouldn’t surprise you that Daniel Bryan found the whole thing downright silly.

Bryan was recently interviewed by IGN.com about his wife’s Brie main-event push and ..click here to read more , ,

WWE SummerSlam 2014 Results & Recap: Brock Wins, Shield Shine

WWE SummerSlam 2014 Results & Recap: Brock Wins, Shield Shine

The Brock Lesnar era is back! Brock Lesnar defeated John Cena to win the WWE championship in the 27th SummerSlam main-event. The  show will be remembered for the most one-sided headliner in SummerSlam history and a match of the year candidate between Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.

Brock Lesnar squashed John Cena to win the WWE world title. There are very few WWE matches that I get excited about these days but this was one of them. Their Extreme Rules 2012 match is still one of my favorite matches of the last several years. The rematch didn’t disappoint although I liked the more competitive Extreme Rules bout better. Lesnar hit an F5 in the first minute of the match! Lesnar continued to toss Cena around for a while, making it look easy. The storyline early was Cena trying to fight back with no success against Brock. The announcers put over the ..click here to read more , , , , , , ,

Dixie Carter Comments On Spike Not Renewing Impact Reports

by

Dixie Carter is living in a land of delusion off of the river of denial. Carter recently made her first public comments about Spike cancelling Impact. Let’s just say it appears that Dixie never got the memo or read the news on TMZ.com.

For someone with a background in public relations, Dixie is one of the absolute worst promoters I have ever seen with the media. Dixie rarely shoots straight and gives the impression she is living in an extremely isolated world away from the realities of TNA Wrestling. Regardless, these interviews are gifts to blogs like mine so keep them coming.

It was reported a couple of weeks ago that Spike TV will not be renewing their deal with TNA Wrestling. Their deal runs out in October and TNA are allegedly fighting hard to find a new home for Impact. Anything short of a new deal will either sink ..click here to read more , ,

Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier Delayed Until UFC 182

by

UFC fans will have to wait for the biggest fight of the year. An injury to UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has delayed his upcoming grudge match with Daniel Cormier until January 2015 and take place at UFC 182.

News broke on Tuesday of the delay which comes a week after some pundits predicted blockbuster numbers for the fight coming off of a press conference brawl and a couple of verbal scraps on television. Tensions boiled over last week when Jones and Cormier got into it at a presser. A satellite feed of ESPN’s interview with the two showed a side of Jones none of us had ever seen where he mocked Cormier and called him “p*ssy” several times. By week’s end interest in this fight had grown to levels not seen since Sonnen vs. Silva 2.

Jones is pulling out of the first due to an injury ..click here to read more , , , ,
