Survivor Series Predictions

Last Updated on: 20th October 2013, 05:28 pm

There won’t be any. Matt is smart enough to be off doing something fun, and me, oh me. I tried to write a prediction post, I really did. But I got 2 matches in and I realized that it just wasn’t going to happen. In order to write about something and make it interesting, I have to care about it in some way. It doesn’t matter if it makes me happy or makes me angry so long as it makes me something, and this show doesn’t. In fact, if I never get to see it, I won’t care. I can’t think of another time in my life when I could honestly say that. Even when I know a show is going to be bad I can still find a reason to look forward to it, even if that reason is just because it’s wrestling. But tomorrow I’m going to be watching the Grey Cup and drinking beer with some good company, and the Survivor Series likely won’t even enter my head until somebody asks me about it. Guess I’ve got something in common with the writing team. Well, other than that watching the Grey Cup part…

Seriously, they’ve put no effort whatsoever into making anybody who isn’t a John Cena fan want to see this show, and even those people have got to be getting sick of the video packages by now. I don’t hate the guy like a lot of people do, but I don’t like him enough to care about his comeback either. the Smackdown title match has been built well, but Triple H almost always wins so why should I get my hopes up for Jeff Hardy? I’m sure the match will be fun, but the Undertaker Big Show feud does nothing for me. people feuding with the general manager or president or commissioner or owner or chairman or booker or janitor or whoever it is from the office that’s in charge got old years ago. It takes a special type of character to pull it off, and since neither of these guys are Steve Austin, it ain’t happening. Elimination matches? Maybe if they got some time to become something worthwhile and they knocked off those stupid quick pinfalls that I hate so much because they make guys look weak I’d care,but they forgot how to do that sometime in the 90’s, so I don’t.

The only predictions I’ll make for tomorrow are that the Stampeders will beat Montreal and that a good time will be had. Oh, and that a lot of people are going to want their $40 back from WWE assuming that anybody actually buys the show in the first place. It might be ok because people tend to buy the big shows of the year out of habit, but the buyrate for this one could be pretty ugly. And you know what? I hope it is. At a time when WWE is trying to cut costs and people are starting to watch what they spend, we need to send the message that they need to do better if they expect us to buy in. Hell, they need to do better period, because I’m not even sure I want to waste my valuable bandwidth downloading it for free.
