The little things you hate about wrestling.

Recommended Posts

Ok, so some people hate John Cena, most people hate Shawn Michaels, sane people hate TNA but those are all big, sweeping topics, I'm looking for the little niggly things about wrestling that annoy you ever so slightly.

 

For instance (and there are a lot more that I have once the ball starts rolling and I put some thought into it), I hate the indy standoff of moronic tomfoolery. That stupid ass thing that RVD and Jerry Lynn made famous where a couple of two bit indy wrestlers do some Headlock-Hammerlock reversal sequence or whatever and then do a standoff followed by the idiotic sheep in the audience applauding like they just invented the wheel.

 

I also hate that spot where one guy is laying on the mat close to the turnbuckle and the other guy is on the turnbuckle and jumps off with a 'Ok, I'm going to get you this time, sucka. Oh dear I appeared to have jumped straight into your raised boot' type thing. What the hell was the jumper going for anyway? It never ever looks good.

 

So...proceed.

To be honest i agree with the second one the most Naitch. However i think the problem with the standoff spot is that people see what (using Jerry Lynn and RVD) as the main way of showing that the wrestlers are equal however if you carry on doing the same sort of template then everyone is going to using it to get a cheep pop

The spot where a heel like HHH or someone goes to the top rope (when you know they never use aerial moves anyway) and goes for a double axe handle only to be punched in the gut by the babyface.

A commercial every 5 minutes during LIVE RAW. I should be use to it after 3 years, but I'm not :(

 

Thats why I dont watch it live anymore. I find I enjoy it a lot more without the ads.

A ref who has his back turned not hearing a chair shot yet an entire arena can.

 

Adding to this, a ref who has turned his back to the ramp where the video screen is showing the whole arena the chair shot and yet does nothing. Either Refs are stupid or they have that bad of eye sight they make Mr Magoo have perfect sight

"This is awesome" chants. They're just utterly redundant, thanks mostly to TNA. That's a crossbody block, it's not awesome, shut up.

A sledgehammer as a foreign object. How can you swing a sledgehammer at a human skull for nearly 10 years and not kill at least one person with it? Brass knuckles or a roll of coins, fine, believable heelish foreign objects, you can pop a guy in the face with those and it's believable that he'd be out for a 3 count with no long term damage but a friggin' SLEDGEHAMMER? Estupido.

It's made all the worse by how it's used. If I ever take it upon myself to hit someone with a sledgehammer, I'll pull back that hammer and swing it at someone's face. I will NOT inexplicably cup the head in my hand and poke at people with it.

He swung it at Vince's head like a baseball bat at the end of the Cell match and Vince was back a week later or something. I know Vince is the Bionic Man after recovering from 2 quad tears in 13 minutes but come on now.

That whole spot was ruined by the end of the hammer flying off, thus making it really obvious that he hadn't really hit him with it.

If Hulk Hogan was Hulking Up on me, I'd either kick him in the balls or jump out of the ring in the middle of his Hulk Up thus making him look like a fool. Are the wrestlers so transfixed by the strange glow of his skin and the light twinkling from his skullet that they become frozen to the spot when Hogan is Hulking Up?

I hate everything about Ref's. They are useless.

 

Other than that, I hate Pyro. Especially Y2J's mini Pyro before the big explosion and the countdown. It sounds like a fart.

A Hulk up followed by a kick to the balls from someone like Edge or Jericho would complete my life.

Female wrestlers getting thrown into the cornor, comming to a stop before they hit, softly laying themselves backwards into it and then acting like they are really hurt by it

 

Its pathetic to see it happening and is one of my main gripes about 'Diva' matches
