Why 2012 will not be as good as 2011.
Hey guys, its me. I was wondering a few days ago about the build up that WWE had previously in 2011 compared to 2012 regarding WrestleMania and the events that this year and 2011 have/will be producing. Now these are a few arguments/notes/points that I want to get some feedback on.
1. The whole year of 2012 will just revolve around John Cena and The Rock.
Straight out, if WWE are having this as the feud of the whole year then it will be draining. Unlike Rock vs. Hogan or Rock vs. Austin these two have been at each other for about 2 years now on television and social media. Also the whole feud has been just on twitter, basically the entire feud has been twitter and whenever the two actually speak and talk to each other on any show, they always gotta bring up Twitter for some reason. I know that it is a good website and all but jeez take it easy on Twitter, WWE has been overdoing Twitter since Mid 2011. Also another thing is that these two never take breaks, well the Rock sure does however Cena will always be there and I have a feeling that he will also be popping up at paces every week this year. I know it is the biggest match ever but doesn't 2012 seem to late to have this feud. In my opinion the two could have wrestled at last year's WrestleMania 27 event.
2. 2011 had better feuds
1.1. Midcarder's/Upper Midcarders and lower level talent won't be happy.
The lower level talent will not be happy? why they will be pished aside while these two just keep on yapping. And I just noticed that next week these two are going to waste 20 - 30 minutes on another segment which will be meaningless.
Now WWE this is not what The Rock or Cena are like, I remember Rock as someone who destroyed guys after his promos and laying the SmackDown on them. However WWE have played the whole feud wrong and they aren't letting the two brawl at all, not one bit. The only close things we have had violent between the two were when Rock would Rock Bottom Cena at WrestleMania 27 and then do the same again at Survivor Series 2011. There is basically no violence in this feud not even a tiny bit of a brawl which is separated by security. The whole feud has been Twitter, let's just admit that.
By the title of this point Hype is what this feud has been as well. It was hyped throughout Twitter and also it has been airing and running commercials on Raw, SD, NXT, Superstars and etc. However this feud is hyped to the limit, that if the match turns out to be garbage fans will be ranting, complaining and exaggerating over the fact that they wasted 50 bucks to purchase the "People's WrestleMania" and they end up with something that is worthless, that is also regarding the other matches that have been booked. 2011 barley had any hype compared to this year's hype between the two.
Straight out, 2011 compared to 2012 so far had put on better feuds. Now don't start posting to me that oh keep moving on however the matches that have been put out this year have been horrible. We have had Drew McIntyre get buried countless times, Swagger, Ziggler, Henry, Christian and among others whom were former World Champions who were invovled in great build ups last year they have all been getting pushed aside. In late 2010/Early part of 2011 McIntyre, Ziggler, Swagger were all taken seriously these guys were in contention for the WHC in 2010 and now they are nothing but jobbers.
Also we 2011 in the months of January, February, March and April had feuds like Edge and Del Rio, Miz and Cena, Orton and Punk and Undertaker and Triple H. Those WM builds ups from last year blow this year's out of the water.
Has there been any feud that has had build up besides Taker/Undertaker and Rock/Cena?
3. WWE used more variety of superstars last year around this time than they are doing this year so far.
We had The Miz as WWE Champion, Edge as World Heavyweight Champion, Wade Barrett as Intercontinental Champion, Sheamus as United States Champion, Eve as Divas Champion and then we had Santino and Kozlov as Tag team Champions.
Now fast forward this year, we may have some decent champions in Bryan and Punk but the tag team titles are gone, they are buried, let's forget it and say that it doesn't exist anymore. Then the Divas title which is close to being defunct.
With the talent last year guys like Dolph Ziggler, John Morrison, Jack Swagger, Kofi Kingston, The Miz, R-Truth and many more midcarders were transformed into main eventers. It might have been only for about a few months however WWE did a nice job with these guys reaching the main event scene, then SuperShow had to happen and they went back to being lower/mid card guys.
In 2012 it looks like every midcarder is overshadowed by The Rock and John Cena, the Title picture feuds as well as some of the Upper Mid Carders.
In my own opinion WWE began to fade and get worse around Novembe 2011. Guys were being buried and it began all the hype on Cena, The Rock and more garbage.
Hope you see were I am coming with this, I just think 2011's build up used better techniques and now we are stuck with some messy things happening, not many guys are featured on this year's WrestleMania 28 and comparing it to last year well, The Miz as WWE Champion was the best I have been in ages, and he beat Cena as well to remain champion was even better, however compare that with this year? the storytelling was way better with that feud then it is with the whole Punk vs. Y2J feud IMO.
Hope you know where I am coming from, feel free to post your thoughts as well, you may not read the whole post however you can post some things that you either agree/disagree with.
Straight out 2012 will be nothing more then a Political Year in 2012. WWE actually went away from all politics and stuff during 2009 however they brand it back just after SummerSlam 2011, with the whole HHH, Nash and Punk thing. Now this is just a big joke. That is why 2011 well the let's say the first 8 months of 2011 were good for the WWE compared to now and what is has become.
