For the second time, a War Games match makes an appearance in Meltzer’s Classics. It also once again features The Four Horsemen with Ric Flair, Barry Windham and Sid Vicious teaming up with Larry Zybysko who is replacing an injured Arn Anderson. On the other side of the two rings are our babyfaces, Sting, Brain Pillman and the Steiner Brothers.
There is something great about the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony. It invites new fans to discover legends of the past and with the WWE Network actually go out and watch their matches. This year was no different, as several men who should have been enshrined in that hall long before finally made their way into it.
Night of Champions is a strange PPV this year. On one hand it feels like a big deal. Seth Rollins will compete twice and Sting is fighting for the WWE Title, something we never thought we’d see. However, the rest of the card is same old, same old. Rusev and Dolph Ziggler are still plodding away in their never-ending feud and Neville will probably beat Stardust again. As usual, WWE are approaching the end of the year stuck in a bit of a rut. Which is probably not the way to entice you into reading this preview.
Sting, despite a WWE record of 0-1, is going into Night of Champions against Seth Rollins for the WWE Title. He’s also seemingly slipping back into his Joker character, which made an appearance in TNA. The question is, is this the right way to use Sting? And is there any world in which him becoming WWE Champion is a good idea?
So Wrestlemania has again crept up on us and this Sunday the Showcase of the Immortals will once again beam around the world. Sadly, the build up has been patchy at best. While at other times it has been R-Truth stealing the Intercontinental Championship (seriously, how insane would you have thought I was if I had suggested R Truth was going to be part of the ‘Mania card six months ago?). Despite this, I can’t help but be excited by the WWE’s Super Bowl. Despite creative consistently shooting its performers in the foot. I reckon the WWE will pull this off. Why? Well let me tell you.
