A: Ladies and gentlemen… Welcome! To the Road to Wrestlemania! We officially get underway tonight, so get ready for two months of constant sign pointing. As always, the Rumble match will be the main attraction tonight, but there is also an extremely interesting WWE Championship match featuring Brock Lesnar, John Cena and Mr Money In The Bank, Seth Rollins. So let’s get to it! Here are our predictions for the first PPV of 2015!
M: This should be the 2nd biggest event of the year but it just doesn’t feel like it any more. Since the WWE Network came out over here I have been constantly watching as much as I can. Specifically Royal Rumbles to try and get in the mood. Alas the more I watch the days of old, the more I realise how pathetic today’s product actually is. Competition from WCW drove the WWF/WWE to do great things 20 years ago. They were forced to go against their grain and their core values to fight for their lives. Little did they know at that point that it would end up saving them and propel the company onto monumental success and eventually a complete monopoly of the wrestling world.
Within that however lies the problem. With no competition, there is no need to change or develop. The middle finger has been raised by Vinnie Mac for a long time now and it is aimed firmly at the audience that once saved his dream from dying. I’m not saying necessarily that it needs to go back to what it used to be, but it needs change and it has to progress. I’m getting closer and closer to just not tuning in anymore. I don’t usually watch Raw or some PPVs until the next day but I can foresee a time soon when I just don’t tune it at all, and it pains me to say that that doesn’t really bother me as much anymore.
I hate doing rants. I wish I had something good to write!!!
Might as well get started then. As always, I’ll spend as much time on the predictions as WWE have.
