“Hell hath no fury than a woman scorned.” In the WWE, that is code word for, “Don’t piss AJ Lee off.”
Lee still has a stronghold on breaking hearts and taking names in the company that has made her a superstar.
Let’s see, Daniel Bryan was “crazy” when she dated him. She “cost” him the WHC. CM Punk “dug” the crazy chick, but did not want to marry her. Kane did not know what to do with the crazy chick. Daniel Bryan tried to marry the crazy chick. John Cena had an interest in her but found out how “crazy” she was. And if you are scoring at home, she fell “crazy” in love with Dolph Ziggler and his WHC title aspirations.
Excuse me while I catch my breath, That’s plenty of frequent flier miles for anyone, regardless of how hot she looks.
Ok, getting back to the crux of this column. Everyone stay with me here.
The fact Ziggler has decided to part ways with the most evil woman in the WWE this side of Scary Sherri Martel is simple —- Shawn Michaels walked away from the association of a woman in the ring and now, the “Show Stealer” is following suit.
There is no way Ziggler can be the “hit” everyone wants him to be and the leading player the WWE wants him to be if he is connected to the WWE’s biggest female draw and one of the biggest flaws in getting over.
Randy Savage could do it with Elizabeth. Their chemistry was “real” and fans loved them both.
Eddie Gilbert could get away with it with Missy Hyatt. For any of you who are not aware of who Missy Hyatt is, google her and see what she looked like in 1985.
The point I am making is singles champions are usually more successful without the drama associated with the woman by his side. For months, Ziggler made it work with Vickie Guerrero, but the angle grew stale and fans did not like Ziggler in the role.
Lee cost John Cena the WHC Title Ladder match at TLC and then began her “whirlwind” romance with “Ziggy.”
Awww. I am sure Susan Lucci is giving her a standing ovation.
If it is predetermined by the WWE that stars like Ziggler will replace the likes of Shawn Michaels and CM Punk replaces Randy Savage, John Cena is the next Hulk Hogan and so on, they need to follow suit, realize the character strengths of the past and use those “skits” but not to a pint where they completely emulate them.
Ziggler is in the right place at the right time — right now, to be great. The recent matches with Alberto Del Rio have been nothing less than magic. Much like Michaels and Chris Jericho in years past.
I have always said wrestlers push each other for greatness and success. The angle now presented to us will move away toward Ziggler’s title chances and his dealing with the decisions he has made. This is good news for his “muscle” Big E Langston and their potential feud. And if anyone has even thought of this, it could be a reason Kaitlyn recaptures the WWE Divas Title (what’s good for the goose is good for the gander).
