Sunday the 25th marked the very first WWE Bragging Rights, and team Smackdown walking out with bragging rights for the year. To me, I am surprised by this. The reasons is, I called that Smackdown would win the “bragging rights” at the pay-per-view, and two, that WWE would let Smackdown be the number one show for the next year. The thing why it shocked me is, I thought Triple H and Shawn Michaels would definitely want to win and keep the trophy for themselves.
But one of the coolest things that I enjoyed out of the whole storyline coming out of Bragging Rights is Big Show turning on his team, Team Raw, to help out Team Smackdown, in the 14-man tag team match. Why did I enjoy that? That is also bringing tension between my favorite tag team, the team of Jerishow. And both men, the Unified World Tag Team Champions, are even getting a World Heavyweight Championship match at Survivor Series against the Undertaker.
[adinserter block=”1″]Now to where I wish this whole storyline would go. When the Big Show is on Raw, the crowd, the locker room, and the announcer team, would absolutely hate him, and when he is on Smackdown or ECW, all three wouldn’t want to accept him because he is a traitor, and he could deceive them all and be a “Raw-Plant.”
And seeing the No-Disqualification Lumberjack match on Raw with the Big Show against Triple H with John Cena as the ref, I really enjoyed the match. The reason why I enjoyed the match is seeing everyone being “angry” with the 7-foot almost 500 pound giant “costing them” the rights to brag over Smackdown over the year and helping Triple H defeat him in a match. I feel like, if WWE Creative can do this right, could be a great storyline and a great angle.
But would that happen? I’ll be surprised. Reason why I’ll be surprised if WWE does something right with the storyline because it’s the WWE, they don’t like to have their storylines to make sense and be logical. Look at my last week-in-review to look my thoughts on WWE logic.
[adinserter block=”2″]And thinking of it, Survivor Series is less than four weeks away. The two Survivor Series main events were named. Big Show and Chris Jericho are challenging the Undertaker in a triple threat match for the World Heavyweight Championship, and Triple H and Shawn Michaels are challenging John Cena in a triple threat match for the WWE Championship. Would these matches turn out good? I surely hope so. It would be neat if they made it an elimination triple threat match for the two World titles. And hopefully there are some Survivor Series Elimination Matches at the pay-per-view.
But anyways, to conclude, this is Eric Darsie from Minnesota, hoping that the WWE will do something right with this storyline, goodbye!
