It’s time to take a look back at both the best and worst moment from this past week in wrestling television.
Aces and Eights attack Sting with a hammer (Impact, 11/08/12)
Sure, Director of Chaos is a ridiculous name for a wrestler and TNA still has time to reveal a real name, but you can’t deny that the former Luke Gallows looked like an absolute menace this past Thursday.
Aces and Eights powerbombed Sting through a table and then D.O.C. attacked Sting with a hammer on the hands, ribs and back of the head as the TNA locker room came to the ring a minute too late.
It was sick, brutal and the Aces and Eights appeared to be legitimate threats.
Mike Tenay and Tazz aren’t regarded by many as a great announce team, but they did a great job as they drove home the attack’s viciousness and the possibility that the group potentially sidelined Sting indefinitely.
John Cena and Vickie Guerrero Segment (Raw, 11/05/12)
The Birmingham crowd made this segment watchable through their priceless reaction, but it’s the actual lack of logic in this storyline that earns this segment the “lowlight.”
To put it simply, an affair storyline cannot happen in a PG-era WWE. It just can’t.
That’s why the extent of the affair has been hugs, elevators and towels. It’s weak all around and nobody gains anything from it.
This past week we were served with more crapola as the newest “evidence” was two different hotel security cameras that captured A.J. Lee and John Cena towel-clad at different times, not even in the same shot.
It also doesn’t help that WWE’s video packages made this look like TMZ material.
What WWE plans to get out of this remains to be seen, but with more “evidence” promised for Raw, it’s not good for anybody.
