Was that a clean win for Sami Zayn? Or he just survived the onslaught of Braun Strowman for 10 minutes? Roman Reigns hasn't been booked strong for a long time? Damn. That's wrong. He just eliminated The Undertaker from Royal Rumble. That's strong or weak booking?
I disagree. And I don't know what type of opinion is mine.
Atleast, He could say that he attacked him. What did he originally do? Nothing.
Money match? A trilogy where one side has already won two times. Already seen twice. Might be for others but not for me.
Wyatt/Orton is first for me. Nobody cares? Lol. I care about it a lot. It's much more interesting than Goldberg/Lesnar, Reigns/Undertaker, Styles/Shane and HHH/Rollins.
Outcome of a match is significant. Just like the end of a story.
Let's put a bow on this whole conversation because it's really going nowhere.
I see wrestling as a tv show or movie, at the end, the bad guy will always gets what he deserve and the good guy will get the last laugh. That's how I see wrestling, I don't care about the competition aspect of the thing or length or if this was a 5 star match or not, I just cares aout the story being told and if they hook me to see what's going to happened next
So for me, owens getting squashed was great story telling and made me want to see how owens would respond to what jericho did to him. I was the perfect way to move to the next step of the story me and by squashing owens the way thy did, they got me interested in this feud more that if owens would have gotten some offense on goldberg, but again that me. Same goes with reigns, because to me reigns needed to conquered the monster that he wasn't able to beat before he goes on to wrestle undertaker. I t was he classic good guy survive the bad guy and found a way to win this is the type of basic storytelling that I love, but again that's me
In the end, that's just my take about all of this, I've seen this type of booking for so long now that I accepted it and everytime I see it, it bring me back to the early days of wwe when you didn't need all those complicated story and making sure that everybody looked good while telling a story. All you needed was a good guy and a bad guy and during the story, the Bad guy would get what's coming to him just like the movies or tv show. I see wrestling like how a casual fan see wrestling and sometimes I gets me in trouble with hardcore wrestling fans, but it also makes for one hell of an interested discussion.
