20150626_LIGHT_RawPreview_KaneRollinsAmbroseRoman_HOMEPAGE

It was almost a foregone conclusion that Brock Lesnar would dismantle Seth Rollins to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion at WWE Battleground. However, The Architect changed many a mind last week on Raw, when he mended fences with his Authority allies and brutalized The Beast Incarnate.

Now that they have successfully transformed the unstoppable Anomaly into an underdog, The Authority’s two heavy hitters, Rollins & Kane, will put their combined skills to the test against Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns in the main event of Raw. What else does the future hold for this Monday’s show?

Leakee & Dean Ambrose vs. Damien Sandow & Leo Kruger

Before the match was to begin both tag teams had a few choice words a themselves. Once Sandow and Kruger finished, Sandow tried to go over towards Leakee and Ambrose and was hit with two elbows. Kruger tried to get a few words across and Ambrose dumped him over the ropes.

Ambrose and Sandow started the match. Leakee rough tagged himself in, but only for a second. Ambrose came back in and went for a few minutes with Sandow.

Leakee soon came back in the match and took out Sandow. Sandow tagged Kruger in and Leakee took him to the limit.

After the break, Leakee was on the defense with Sandow with the upper hand. Sandow tags out and Kruger comes in.

The match continues to go back and forth. One team trying to one up the other. The match coming close to an end on several occasions.

Leakee comes back in the match and hits the check mate for the win.

This has to be one of the greatest independent matches in my opinion.

THE PSEUDO-REBELLIOUS NATURE OF THE MODERN WRESTLING FAN OR WHY PEOPLE HATE ROMAN REIGNS

Let’s have a look at the guy. He’s big. Actually his size is so imposing that people probably pull back to clear the way when he walks on the street. He gives off the impression that he’s a beast in the ring but you can probably only name two moves that he makes and they are awfully flashy. His entrance theme is easily recognizable but nothing altogether extraordinary. It’s most likely that his mic skills are quite limited, but then again the amount of promo time he gets is way too scarce for a sound judgment to be based on it. However, he has a catchy catch phrase, so the crowd can easily be orchestrated to cheer for him without the need to listen to him struggle and stumble through a proper promo. And we are supposed to like this guy? Ryback is so overrated. Yes, Ryback.

Reading that description, you were fully convinced that I was talking about Roman Reigns, weren’t you? Yes, the title was probably deceiving enough, I admit, but you never stopped for a second, thinking “Wait, this doesn’t sound like Reigns at all”. It’s also a fact, that disregarding the negative bias in the writing, the points made are undoubtedly applicable to the Big Guy as well. However, the crowd cheered Ryback all the way from being part of the jobber team Rybaxel into a solid main event push, while simultaneously flooding the internet with protests against the expected push for Roman Reigns.  Why? Because we were told that Reigns was about to become the “next big thing” and that instantly turned him from a fan darling to a number one enemy of the Internet Wrestling Community.

While Reigns was with the Shield, there was barely anybody, who didn’t like the guy. He had the look, he had the presence and the audience would jump on their feet every time he speared someone to save his brothers in arms, taking down the barricade on the way from time to time. He was the muscle, he was the enforcer and everybody loved him for doing his job well. Once the cracks in the Shield became painfully evident and a breakup cast its shadow over the imminent future, the fans started discussing the matter of who’d become the break-out star of the Shield. This is where the antagonism towards Roman Reigns was born.

Anywhere you looked on the web, you’d find reports, opinion articles and angry fan comments, claiming that Roman Reigns was going to get a mega push based on his heritage and his looks. It’s amazing that somehow the guy everyone cheered for became the guy “who sucks and is being pushed down our throats” in a matter of days. Nothing in Roman Reigns’ style or performance changed. His charisma didn’t just magically drain out. What hit him was the modern wrestling fan’s need to rally against anything that’s presented to him as worth liking.

What I call the “pseudo-rebellious nature” is anything that corresponds with the following behavioral pattern: “This X guy is not being given an opportunity, he’s amazing and we totally want him on top. Oh, wait!  The WWE says that this X guy is good, he must be rubbish, we absolutely hate him, push that other guy instead”.  Sadly, this way of thinking defines the fans’ reaction most of the time. The goal of this behavior is to fulfill some sort of an insatiable need to rebel against those in power. The modern wrestling fan is never happy. For a good half of 2014, the internet was overpopulated by newfound Daniel Bryan fans, demanding to see him as a WWE Champion because the Authority was saying no. The meaner the NOs were, the louder the YES chants got. However, as soon as a WrestleMania win was underway, the “I’m sick of this goat-face troll” comments injected themselves under most articles and the online scene quickly started changing colors.

I’m not saying that the WWE is always right and the Internet Wrestling Community is always wrong, far from that. In fact, I’m probably the first one to criticize booking, character development or plot holes.  However, I believe that criticism should be kept constructive. For example, writing corny, macho-esque promos for Reigns portrays him as a predominately “eye-candy material”, targeted to cater to the female audience. Cut out the “womanizer” lines out of it, keep him confident but subtle, and he becomes the dark silent warrior that most fans can get behind.

Also, judging a man before he has done anything at all is ridiculous. Let’s go back to The Big Guy, Ryback. If I was to express a negative opinion of Ryback, that could be justified based on his performance. He became a singles competitor in 2012 when he received his first push and I am yet to see a thrilling match by him. I know that there are wrestlers that get over more because of their character and less because of their wrestling skills, but I don’t buy the Big Guy’s unexplained “feed me more” gimmick and even less its recently discovered pop psychology origins. I can see the comic value in the Big Guy when he has his socially awkward/”stupid” gimmick. It makes him likeable. But that’s about it.

Roman Reigns, however, is a different question. For a starter, he’s undeniably faster and more agile than Ryback in the ring. We are yet to see a good, long, singles match from Reigns, either. Then again, we’ve barely seen any singles matches from him. Reigns got injured just before he had the opportunity to show the extent of his capabilities. We don’t know how he’ll handle it. He’s barely had any matches as a singles competitor at all. Also, in his feud with the Big Show, Reign’s superman gimmick in the ring has been toned down to a level that I can go with. And still, the very thought that there are plans for Reigns to become a champion at WrestleMania makes him a thorn in the side for many.

During the Attitude Era, which like any childhood memory has received a god-like status, people would have never questioned a large, good looking guy, who manhandles his opponents. Nowadays, the fans boast about the freedom of expression that they have but hate the era that gave it to them and they reject the current characters that could fit in the times that that they feel nostalgic about. Jumping on an anti-persona band wagon is as mainstream as liking a mainstream character. Rebelling has turned into endless mundane complaining.

We should all be more like the NXT crowd – they participate in every match and cheer for every wrestler when he does something good, regardless of his heel/face status. This gives every performer the energy he needs to show his potential but then only the best truly connect with the audience and have the fans stand up on their feet with respect, while a masterpiece is being created in the ring. In the end of the day, striving to scrutinize the product all the time leaves us bitter and unable to enjoy what draws us to the WWE in the first place – the love for wrestling.

WWE Superstar Roman Reigns joined Chad Dukes and the Sports Junkies on 106.7 The Fan in Washington, DC earlier and said that WWE is “a little bit old school now.” He said:

“When people talk about the past time of wrestling and how the guys used to be and there’s all these little stories here and there. I like to think that we shine in that regard. We’re a different breed, the new guys coming up.”

He also talked about characters becoming stale and how it’s imperative talents be able to evolve. When asked specifically about The Miz, he said there was still a chance for him to excel in WWE:

“He had a nice run and he was doing the things he did. He headlined a WrestleMania. He also, he has different ties and crossover connections with what he did before he started wrestling… With any character or any performer there’s always a chance to change yourself, to evolve, to be different, to show something new. I think that anybody who is feeling like they’re stale, if they need to revamp… if they can do that, then there’s respect in that.”
