It’s that time of the year again as WWE comes back onto pay per view tonight with it’s annual Night of Champions event. The premise, that every title is to be defended, falls a little by the wayside this year a the seven matches scheduled for the card make it appear a bit lackluster in terms of quality and seems to show the misdirection WWE has for almost every title that isn’t the top two championships.
That misdirection is inherent in the pre-show kickoff match. In order to determine the number one contenders to the Tag Team Championships currently held by The Shield’s Roman Reigns and Seth Rolllins we are going to be treated to an absolute cluster of a 5-team Tag Team Turmoil match. Nothing about the format of this match makes any sense and aside from The Primetime Players (Darren Young & Titus O’Neill) none of the other teams have been built up for a tag title run. So, sorry 3MB (Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal, & Drew McIntyre), Tons of Funk (Tensai & Brodus Clay), Jimmy...

WWE Raw opened with a video package recapping the low (Paul Heyman “pinning” C.M. Punk) and high (Daniel Bryan capturing the WWE Title) last night at Night of Champions.

What a sad state of events for the company, which should be working to out do itself each and every week, like it did years ago.
There is only 1 potential game changer not currently on the market that could set the WWE on fire. He won’t be a free agent for another year but I dare you to tell me anyone that would make as big of an impact on the WWE for one year than Kurt Angle.
Do me a favor: think back to the ‘Attitude Era.’ Make a numbered list, one to five. Next to each number, write down the names of those men who best defined that short, yet ludicrously profitable, wrestling period from late 1997 until around 2001.
Now scan back over it. Who do you have?
‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin definitely makes the cut. So does Vince Mcmahon. Probably the...
