“Acceptance” by The Importance of Poison begins to play. As a clip is aired of the wrestler executing his craziest moves
Dressed in his finest…eh…”suit”, with his goody bag by his sideGood day. This is your resident maniac, Jay McBang. I have a new bottle of capsules and a new topic… so let’s see what’s inside…
The Brain of a Maniac
The random thoughts.
1. Randy and Shane-O Mac was a fantastic match! Equally guys ended up brutal (even though I’d would have liked to see much more blood) and the provide-in of HHH was excellent!
two. So Hardy vs Hardy will be at WM 25 it seems to be like. I predict a TLC match, with the winner getting a shot at the brand Champion at Backlash.
three. CAGE ON ECW?!!? I know what I’m producing on up coming time!:-)4. Usually just three, but this has to be mentioned. The elimination chambers did not go how I planned. I truly didn’t want to see Edge/Cena and HHH/Orton again… while equally give the likely for wonderful matches.
Now, onto the topic. 3 weeks ago, I pointed out I was heading to do the HBK and JBL feud. Well… right here it is. 1 of the very best, and if you’re a fan of the aged days, only true, rivalry the WWE has heading appropriate now.
Before we get into the feud itself, let’s take a brief (very brief) glimpse at the participants.John Bradshaw Layfield is a man currently destined for the Hall of Fame. He is the longest reigning planet champion in Smackdown! historical past, with his title reign of 280 days. In WWF/E, Layfield is a a single time WWE Champion, a a single time United States Champion, a one particular time European Champion, a seventeen time Hardcore Champion, and a three time World Tag Staff Champion with Faarooq (Ron “Damn!” Simmons) as component of the Acolytes Protection Agency (APA). He also was a commentator during his simi-retirement, as he attempted to discover a way to correct his back. The moment he acquired healed, he arrived back to us as the exact same-old heel JBL we enjoy to dislike. Woo….. Layfeild has had several gimmicks over the a long time. Even so, soon after he created himself a lot of money on Wall Street, the WWE started his gimmick as it is today, which is based mostly on his true accomplishment and his challenging-Texan frame of mind. (This is crucial for later). He is one of the greater heels, but he can make a genuinely amusing excellent guy when given the likelihood.Like I explained, these overviews will be brief.
Shawn Micheals…. What can I say? He started out in Mid-south wrestling, for the duration of the decade when it was “the” location to be! His accomplishments incorporate WWF Championship (3 instances)WWF European Championship (1 time) WWF Intercontinental Championship (three occasions) WWF/E Entire world Tag Group Championship (four times) – with Diesel (two), Steve Austin (one), and John Cena (1) Entire world Heavyweight Championship (one time) two-time Royal rumble winner, with one particular of them have him getting into at #one, and he has the First Grand-Slam winner, and the fourth triple-Crown winner. Micheals was also in the initial Ladder match and the very first Ironman Match. He was also a WWE commissioner, to give his again a possibility to recover-up after a casket match with The Undertaker. Micheals is an innovator of matches and is nonetheless one of the very best promo guys in the organization. He and Undertaker are the only two males left that have been on the quite first RAW. (This is also critical for later).
So, how did we get to this rivalry? Think it or not, it is fairly easy, and it all comes from a movie. No…I haven’t skipped my tablets today…..The Wrestler, if you haven’t heard, came out a couple of months ago, and it’s about an aging wrestler. 1 of the characters is practically also outdated and needs cash somehow, and get’s an investment from someone or some thing along people lines. At first, WWE shunned the motion picture and didn’t want anything to do with it, but as it became a lot more common, they tried using to incorporate it. In comes the storyline.HBK arrives out and admits he has fiscal troubles. And he had to borrow funds from a millionaire. *DING DING DING DING DING DING DING* Out arrives JBL and says Shawn is his employee and will do whichever he would like. By the grin on his dumb face, you’d believe he’d bought himself a servant a lot more then a gentleman who really can get anybody to the best if he really wanted to support.
So JBL abuses and misuses poor aged Shawn, making him do issues in opposition to Shawn’s morals and pride, even telling him to lie down for the duration of a match that JBL won to get to the Rumble Title match. FYI: Shawn took a Clothesline from Hell just before he laid down. Great for Shawn!Random imagined When are they going to adjust the title to Clothesline from Heck or Hades… you know, because we’re playing to the young children now.Micheals then had to win a match to get JBL into the chamber. HBK failed, leaving Layfield out of the chamber. He then provides HBK the possibility to win his way out of the contract, with JBL paying it in total at a match at No Way Out. JBL abuses Micheals leading up to the match, as HBK cannot strike him until the match at the pay out-per-watch. In a extremely physical battle, HBK wins, getting his cash and ending the fued….OR DOES HE?!!?
JBL comes out for the duration of RAW on the 16th, and, par typical, talks some trash. He then says it is his destiny to defeat the Undertaker’s streak at Wrestlemania (ha). Then, just when we’re abut to alter the channel… Oh! Oh! Shawn!Shawn Micheals arrives out with an intent search on his deal with. He challenges JBL to a match subsequent week (the 23rd) to see who faces The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 25! I assume HBK will win this match and the two remaining RAW originals will fight for greatest glory at the 25th anniversary of Wrestlemania! Nonetheless, I’m normally in a fantasy globe, so I’ll notify you what I believe really should transpire.JBL and HBK battle it out, but neither males win after a double count-out or a thing. Shane or Stephanie make the decision that it will be Undertaker vs HBK vs JBL. Now, all of us will phone this a “Finest Texan Match”, as Undertaker has been billed from Houston and technically lives there, there is 1 of two ways this could go. 1, winner will get a entire world title shot or two, and most most likely of scenarios, it will become a “Loser Retires” match. *Jay waits as the collective gasps and whispers simmer down*Certainly, a “Loser Retires” match. This leads to the situations that JBL can in no way get again to one hundred%, HBK and Undertaker are the two getting also outdated, and a single of them has to pin the other to mail them to the retirement property.
Each of these has their very own distinctive approaches of coming about.1) Undertaker: Undertaker loses the match at his final Wrestlemania. Everyone cries, but we all know it is his time. Undertaker arrives again the moment and a even though about the up coming three a long time for unique appearances, but WWE has a large complete to sense with his absence. I see it currently being HBK who pins him, continuing the general feeling of him becoming “The only 1 to take care of the deamons that arrive with ending someone’s carrer.”two) John Layfield: John’s back just won’t go proper. He does not feel like he can do it anymore. Layfield retains his Fox Business work and, maybe, even goes again to commentating (with a little perform he could be as very good as Tazz…). Layfield most likely wouldn’t disappear forever, if he retired or not. Either guy could actually be the one ending it right here.3) Shawn Micheals: If he doesn’t drop the match, he becomes the new Ric Flair extremely rapidly. Each wrestler will be the a single to “end” him, and depending on which way he desires to go, he’ll either support the new very good men with wisdom or the poor guys with dirty tactics. I can only see Undertaker beating him, actually.So, that’s it, that’s all I got. You have witnessed my favorite scenarios, and, as is the function of all these posts, I wish it will get your minds working as properly.
Up coming week, which truly is in two weeks, as pointed out previously, I am heading to talk about Captain Charisma himself, Christian “Cage”. I hope you join me when we go into… The Mind of a Maniac
