Extreme MEH

This image of John Cena eating a bowl of Fruity Pebbles perfectly sums up my feeling on tomorrow's WWE PPV, which features a lot of un-extreme matches for a show that's supposed to be built on extreme rules... whatever the hell that means these days. And this time around, former ECW and TNA World champion Bobby Lashley has the honors of making Roman look really, really strong... all the while WWE tries desperately to make people care about Roman the way they'd like them to care... if at all.

I want to say that it is painfully frustrating to not look forward to the next PPV and particularly difficult to skip this one as a result of the whole show being uninteresting... but honestly, skipping a WWE PPV and just checking out the results after the fact has been one of the easiest things I've done in regards to the current WWE product. As a matter of fact, I'm more than content watching old stuff on the Network and even some snippets of the indies online whenever I can. Hell, I signed up for a free trial to Powerbomb.TV so I can check out that Black Label Pro wrestling show featuring the Rock & Roll Express taking on the Chop & Roll Express comprising Mr. Minus Five Stars himself, Bryan Alvarez and Filthy Tom Lawlor and I've even considered giving that Global Network thing a chance and check out some old TNA and Impact shows... wouldn't be such a bad idea in theory; means more content for the blog.

So I'm likely to skip the live airing and maybe check out a replay in the background, much like the last time we did one of these things. I'm still on the fence as to whether I'll be watching Summerslam, but considering it's one of the big shows... it's a distinct possibility.

In other news, WWE didn't get an Emmy nomination this year, while the Netflix series based on the old GLOW promotion got a couple nods. Meanwhile, somewhere in Stamford, Connecticut, hidden away in his beaver lodge made of sticks, Kevin Dunn shed a tear.
