To Heel or Not to Heel
Booking the WWE gets murkey.

I have been so casually watching the WWE for quite a while now and not reporting on it mainly because there hasn’t been much to say. While the rivals to the south have been making a slow but steady “ Impact” , pardon the pun, the WWE has been so distracted by outside influences that their product is really suffering.

To begin with they have so much time and money invested in a part time talent that heart just isn’t into it. I have seen Brock Lesnar wrestle twice in two forgettable matches that look more like MMA fights then wrestling Matches. His chief weapon in which he has supposedly broke the Arm of HBK and HHH twice, is a hold that would more then likely dislocate a person’s elbow before you broke their arm.

It’s like Lesnar has forgotten that it’s wrestling. Like he is doing the minimum amount of work and not playing to the crowd at all. Add to the fact that he really can’t function without the puppet master Paul E‘s hand up his ass and you get a lack luster program wasting top WWE talent that could be used better.
CM punk is in the middle of a slow heel turn that would make a turtle put on his Nikes. It isn’t so much that its slow, it’s just meeting some resistance from the fans that still like Punk. When put him and Cena together , half the people still boo Cena and Punk still gets cheered more then booed it seems very contrived to make Punk into the bad guy . Like the notion that Punk some how stole one Sunday night throwing Cena out and cleaning up his finisher for the win. I mean it pretty bad when you got to use the King to sell Punk as the bad guy in all of this.
