The Peagle Moment: Sporadic WWE Thoughts

Welcome to the site, I'll start off by introducing myself. My name is Anthony, A.K.A Peagle (Which means Philadelphia EAGLE, we'll just get that explanation out of the way now). I became a wrestling fan at 5 years old when I first watched WCW. When I was 8, I moved to Maryland from Wisconsin and my older cousin introduced me to what was then the WWF. At that point, I began to love wrestling and still do to this day. I'm going to be a bit sporadic with this post because I just want to hit on a few quick things for my first post. 

First things first: fans have got to stop chanting for CM Punk during shows. We're all fans of him and he had one of the best runs over the last 3 years anyone has ever had. HOWEVER...he left, hours before a show, still tied to a contract. He has clearly shown no desire to come back and I don't for second blame him for getting himself healthy but the way he left is what bothers me. Chanting for him during shows and specifically AJ's segments take away from what she and the other superstars are doing. Let the man “retire” and enjoy what the younger, newer guys are bringing to the WWE. 

Next, John Cena is NOT the greatest WWE champion of all time. Seems like an obvious statement but it needs to be reiterated as much as possible. I try not to do the “Cena Hate” thing, because I don't hate him as a person(also don't know him as a person)...I hate the lack of growth in his character, I hate how nothing about his status is organic, I hate that the WWE tries to make him something he isn't. Cena hasn't had a meaningful title reign in quite some time. He's been a transitional champion for a while which only makes this “greatest of all time” title even worse. Cena has been the cornerstone of the company for well over a decade, which is to be respected. I can't take away from the longevity and the ability to represent the company, but the WWE's reliance on John Cena is hurting things in my opinion. 

This brings me to my last point, Bray Wyatt. This dude got it on the mic, and he's reached my personal “Shut Up, He's on the Mic” list (More on that in a later post). He should have beaten Cena at Wrestlemania 30. Wyatt getting the win back at an inconsequential PPV did nothing for him, especially the way in which he won. Facing Chris Jericho at Summerslam does nothing but give us a potentially great match, but we all know Y2J comes back to lose. The crowd was behind Wyatt all through WM30, if Wyatt wins and Cena goes nuts and beats him down, that feud means so much more. Instead, Cena wins and the rest of us really didn't care that Bray Wyatt employed the Play 60 Kid to terrorize Cena instead of Cam Newton. 

 So that's it for my first post, comments are always welcome and don't forget to follow the site on twitter at @EyesontheRing and follow me at @peagle05.
