United State of Wrestling #10



10 June 2005

Wrestling 101 UK Scene RSS Feed | Feeds

This. Is. Extreme. When those words ring out in the Hammerstein Ballroom this coming Sunday, it will spark an evening of memories and nostalgia for many old ECW supporters and hopefully give many people, who may never have seen ECW, the opportunity to see what all the fuss was about.

I am going to give full marks to the WWE for their handling of the One Night Stand PPV, for they have produced some entertaining build up for the event (especially on Raw) and apparently the whole event is going to be pulled off without a WWE logo in sight.

Rumors are rife that there will be limited camera angles to give the old-style feel and with the New York crowd being the only one that could match the Philly passion and voice, this Sunday looks like it could be one of the best in a long time.

Hopefully, the PPV will be as good as I am anticipating and who knows, maybe more shows will be staged in the near future. I can’t see why Heat and Velocity can’t be merged into a two-hour ECW TV show on a Saturday night for example. If Vince writes the cheques and Paul Heyman books, given the right publicity, it could make the McMahon’s even richer.

Moving on, I don’t know about anyone else, but the Triple H v Batista feud is starting to bore the pants off me. The build up in late 2004/early 2005 was magnificent, but ever since WrestleMania 21, it has been down hill all the way.

Unfortunately, big Dave has proved that whilst capable of some good matches, he is not capable of having great, main-event style matches. Triple H for his part, has been excellent on the mic, but these Triple H main-event feuds every single month are really grating me now.

Quite possibly the most watchable thing this feud has produced in the last month is Triple H’s beard which appears to have a life of it’s own. Every week seems to produce a different looking patch of facial fluff.

The draft is upon us, and without dishing out any spoilers on what has already happened, it looks set to be an impactful one this year. Last year’s was rather wishy-washy if you recall, with such major names as Chuck Palumbo being drafted.

If it was up to me, as I have said before I would restructure both shows. Why not just have the champions being saved and then the chance that every name could move? It would be quite engaging. Instead a ‘lottery’ held over a month, whilst dragging it out longer in the hope of sustained high ratings, will lose the excitement after a couple of weeks.

Just a short United State this week as I have been rushed off my feet again at work, so my apologies, but enjoy One Night Stand and I’ll give you my thoughts on the show on Tuesday.

Andrew Morris
