I honestly thought that the WWE were going to stop treating their fans like shit at Elimination Chamber.
Nobody wanted a Batista/Orton title match at Wrestlemania 30. Nobody wants either of these wrestlers to be champion, primarily because neither of them have earned it.
Orton got the undeserved push from the Authority months ago, and holds both top title belts so that no other wrestler gets to be on equal footing (regardless of how many perceive the World Heavyweight as the B-belt).
Batista is only back to promote his movie. There was no positive reaction to his winning the Royal Rumble. He was booed out of the building tonight.
Daniel Bryan is the guy everyone wants to hold the title. He’s worked his butt off for it, and the fans are completely behind him. Even the Authority have had to concede this point in recent weeks. Vinnie Mac even wants rights to the term “Yes Movement”. Milk that cash cow, but don’t reward him for his efforts.
is there a backstage reason for all this punishment Bryan’s been getting? Who knows? Who cares? All anyone can see is that the fans have been denied what they want for months now. Vinnie Mac doesn’t care, because he’s got a television network to launch. Fuck the wrestlers, fuck the fans, it’s all about that dolla-dolla.
Only he’s gone and shot himself in the foot.
Tonight was their opportunity to give everyone the Wrestlemania we wanted to see. Bryan should have beaten Orton for the belt(s) in the chamber, and gone on to retain against Batista at Wrestlemania.
So explain to me why creative felt that the Wyatts and Kane should have involved themselves in the match. Find me a WWE fan who wanted to see them interfere. Once again, the Authority has displayed its power. It can do as it likes, and it doesn’t care because you’ve already paid them to see this disgrace.
On the eve of the WWE Network’s launch, the WWE have shoved a big fat middle finger up to Daniel Bryan, to their employees who aren’t lucky enough to be named Randy Orton or Dave Bautista, and to the fans that they’re hoping will shell out ten dollars a month as of tomorrow for future pay-per-views.
Is it any wonder that CM Punk walked? No doubt he couldn’t stand to see his colleagues suffer, to see his fans shafted and laughed at by the powers-that-be.
You would have to be amongst only the most hardcore WWE fans to want to pay money for access to the WWE Network tomorrow morning. I, however, am longer a fan. I will not spend another minute of my life having the piss taken out of me by an entertainment company that thinks it’s bigger than its fans.
I’m going to miss watching a few people. Daniel Bryan is always a joy to watch in the ring. John Cena is one of my favourite people in the world. There’s plenty of mid-card talent that hasn’t been given the chance to shine in a long time, that I loved to watch and root for. I already miss CM Punk.
To the WWE blogs that I follow, I’m sorry that you’re going to lose a follower.
In my opinion, the E in WWE is redundant. It’s not entertainment anymore. Perhaps they should start calling themselves the WWFU instead.
