Stupidest decisions in wrestling.
« on: December 20, 2018, 03:50:37 AM »
I was watching Evolution and was taken back by this--

You have Zelina Vega being tossed over the top rope by Nia Jax, which is bad enough--but then you're depending on Tamina to catch her.

So what storylines, moves in matches or anything else didn't make any sense to you?

Not really anyone’s fault, but Public Enemy wound up buried in folding chairs in ECW once, after their opponents, Mick Foley & Terry Funk asked to be thrown a chair to use.
That had to have sucked.

Any of the inferno matches. WTF man.

The New Jack blading thing w. the newbie wrestler.

Owen Hart’s fall of course. :(

i honestly think the X-Pac turn on Kane was a terrible idea. It basically shit all over the past year and was the start of the death knell of X-Pac's heat

^^^good one.

I was never a fan of turning Hawk’s drug issues into a storyline. Not the best way for the Road Warriors to go out.

Expanding the NWO from a stable of three elite wrestlers to a bloated group of mostly mid-carders. Also, not killing the angle when it was obvious it was past it's prime.

Turning Austin heel by having Mr. McMahon help him win over "The Rock" at Wrestlemania X-7. Probably the point where a lot of people I knew stopped watching the WWF/WWE cold. And everything that came after it....

The Invasion. I know there was a whole lot of stuff working against it (The contracts by Time Warner) but damn if thee WWE could've done so much more with it.

^^^More recently, turning Strowman heel at the height of his popularity, to build up Reigns. Again.

More more recently, deciding the way to fix RAW, which sucks, and SD, which does not, is putting the entire McMahon family on TV to eat up time.

The constant swerves of the Russo era WCW. I mean swerves had already been done to death at that point, but with the Russo era swerves they didn't even make sense. They were just swerves for the sake of swerves.

particularly the Goldberg heel turn (wow this trope is on fire)
