WWE recycling WCW crap ****SD! Spoilers***

Orton in locker room washes face in sink, looks in mirror and sees Undertaker in mirror looking at him, Orton rubs his eyes and he is gone afterwards. (we can see his hallucination)

Oh deary deary me.

 

Anyone who watched WCW in 1998 (or indeed has visited Wrestlecrap.com) will know this is a lame reconstruction of the Warrior-Hogan mirror angle.

Ah yes, just when Smackdown was getting good, they do this kind of crap, there is also something about Blood appearing and disappearing off Bob Ortons face, I have no doubt in my mind that with this weeks Raw and the way its going, that Vince Russo is indeed back full-time.

You saying Russo could very well be new GM.

It's not so much the fact it was used in WCW, it's the fact that it was one of the stupidest angles in WCW history. If WWE were going to copy anything from WCW, it should be how much time the cruiserweights every week.

The funny thing about that angle is that Warrior wrote the whole thing - he had complete creative control.

 

So, they're not just ripping off 98 WCW, they're ripping of Warrior's ideas. :P

That isn't even the worst thing from the taping. I cringed when I read about Josh Matthews being "possessed" by the Undertaker. Apparently his eyes roll into the back of his head and he speaks in Undertaker's voice, before acting like nothing happened and asking if Orton had any thoughts.

 

You know, even if WWE are trying to appeal to kids these days (which isn't a terrible idea, actually), even 11 year olds are going to have a hard time not laughing at this crap.

 

HE'S IN THE MIRROR, BROTHER.

No we just like GOOD writing. Being original doesn't hurt either.

I like a little bit of realism in my wrestling, just a little mind. I can barely accept wrestlers talking backstage without seing a huge camera stuck in their face, but all this rubbish is just horrible. It's not Buffy you know, it's a wrestling show. Thats what WWE used to be, a wrestling company, I don't know what it is anymore. They should just commit Vince to an asylum and let someone else try and give it it's dignity back.

I have said for some time that WWE was slowly becoming WCW and this prove it more, they are not only doing the old stoyline sbut look at how they are signing up TNA (their only real compertition) guys who are getting big reps or championships, do I remember WCW doing it to WWE and ECW???...................... YES I DO!!

to be honest Dante to come up with something original in wrestling today is pretty damn hard :lol

 

Yeah' date=' don't forget that WWE is also recycling the "Best of 7 Series" w/ Booker & Benoit from WCW.[/quote']

 

errr can you blame them?! the best of 7 series between Booker & Benoit was the highlight on 1998 for WCW.

Thing is, there's a good reason for that. Well, a few. It was good back then, it gives the US title a prominent program, it has rejuvinated Booker a fair bit, it keeps Benoit around at his right level (upper midcard) and it's long, but not TOO long. Furthermore, it's a simple concept. Two friends, one turns heel through his wife, sets up best of 7 program to decide who is the best. ~~~

 

This Orton thing... just no, no no no.
