: Smackdown kicked off again this week with Miz TV. Between his YouTube matches and his lackluster Piper’s Pit type show is this just a sign of life after the WWE for him?
Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns w/ Dean Ambrose v. The Usos
: Two television appearances in a row and against the hottest act in the WWE. Are the Usos finally going to get a real chance at the main roster? They would add a whole new element to the desperate tag team division.
: Good god who wouldn’t want to see the Damien Sandow Show? Even if you don’t like the guy his segments would be much more entertaining than whatever creative has for The Miz every week.
As you might have heard (or seen briefly on my Twitter page), Creatively Endeavored will be going away on June 1st and a new site will be taking it’s place. The new site will still have all the same things you love about Creatively Endeavored but so much more.
One of these changes we are going to start implementing this week.
Creatively Endeavored has become very WWE & WWE Raw specific. We want to change that. Soon you’ll be seeing new reports popping up featuring recaps for ROH, TNA Impact and WWE Main Event to go along with our coverage of Raw, SmackDown and NXT. These “Quick Hits” will have a little twist though. Every 3 months or so, the writers covering the shows will rotate so there will always be a fresh perspective covering the different shows and different companies.
I know I’m personally looking forward to the change and the many changes coming in the very near future!
All that can be said is… it’s about damn time!
There is a lot of talk about eliminating one of the mid card titles, but I am strong advocate of not only keeping both titles but also bringing back a title that would add some flair to the middle of Raw and SmackDown. The WWE’s roster is as stacked with talent as it has been in a very long time. There are a lot of guys with next to nothing to do but work the house shows and dark matches. Yes I know everyone can’t be John Cena, someone has to make others look good, but there is so much WWE television time nowadays it makes so much sense to bring in another title. Between Raw, SmackDown, Main Event, and Saturday Morning Slam there is six and a half hours of WWE TV each week for all of us to consume, not to mention if you take in TNA and Ring of Honor that’s an additional four hours or so. Now as you take that all in ask yourself this; how much of that WWE time is just video packages? Better question how much time of that is video packages aired from the not only the previous show just one or two days ago but usually (on Raw) we see the same thing, be it a match finish or a promo or a video package at least twice every week on Raw. Who really wants to see that? I know the WWE didn’t do a fan survey and fans demanded more repetitive video packages. Bringing back the cruiserweight division will not only benefit a few Superstars behind the curtain but also the quality of each show’s product will continue to be fresh and not the what else is on tonight feeling sometimes we get.
WrestleMania is supposed to be the final hurrah for the WWE calendar year. It sums up what the WWE has been about the past twelve months since the last WrestleMania, but like last year, this WrestleMania is different; it’s bury the talent to the guys who help sell one million pay per views. The three main event matches are almost set in stone, they are predictable, and will NOT help further the booking the rest of 2013. In simple terms four of the six guys participating in the main event matches won’t be on WWE television for the majority of the year. The Rock will be around, sometimes. Brock Lesnar will have his big pop moments scattered for the next two years. Triple H will go back to running WWE day-to-day, and the Undertaker, arguably, could be having the last match of his professional wrestling career in just a few weeks. All the while, yes these three matches are selling/did sell WrestleMania but the under card is going to steal the show, and hopefully bringing a few part time fans back for more.
: World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio opened SmackDown, pointing at that damn sign of all signs. Del Rio said his opponent would be Jack Swagger. Del Rio went on to preach the American dream is the reason for his success and other like him belong in America, that is why America is such a great country. Doesn’t this feel like Obama against Romney all over again?
: Randy Orton’s music hit and out came the viper. Orton said he knew it would be Del Rio against Swagger at Mania, but tonight Swagger was all Orton’s.
Definitely not my best work but I thought the new World Champion deserved something.
