Instead of revolving entire episodes of Raw around what Triple H and Stephanie are doing, WWE could be promoting their second biggest pay-per-view (from a buyrate standpoint) of the year. Last I checked Hunter and Steph dont have a match on the show, so that seems like a lot of wasted time. I mean, I could check again, but I dont they're booked. With less than 10 days to go, we dont even know 2/3rds of the wrestlers in the match! This is a serious failure on virtually every level of WWE. Its the most popular gimmick match of the year, and the company is still more concerned about power struggle storylines. This is about as bad of a promoting job as TNA did for Bound for Glory last year. How do we not know all the names so far (give or take a surprise or two)? Where is everyone? Roman Reigns announced himself as a participant in the match weeks ago. Shouldnt everyone have been running to get in front of a camera to say me too! Is that all it takes to join the match? In that case, can I get in on it?
As Rust Cohle from True Detective said "Life's barely long enough to get good at one thing. So be careful what you're good at."
Sadly, I can't solve a murder like Rust...or change a tire, or even tie a tie. But I do know all the lyrics to Hulk Hogan's "Real American" theme song and can easily name every Natural Born Thriller from the dying days of WCW. I was once ranked 21st in the United States in Tetris...on the Playstation 3 version...for about a week.
