Top 10 Worst WWE Draft Moments 

10. Muhammad Hassan and Davari drafted to Smackdown (2005)

To this day, Many fans and wrestling journalists cite the Muhammad Hassan gimmick to have the most genuine heat since Sgt.Slaughter back in 1991. Hassan and Davari made their main roster debut in December 2004 on the Raw brand as they got over with the crowd the minute they cut their first promo. During the 2005 Draft, they were drafted to Smackdown and then the terrorist angle happened between Hassan and Undertaker. It was made worse when WWE could not edit the skit off their show due to the real life London Train Station Bombing that happened a few hours before Smackdown aired. The Network told WWE to remove the Hassan Character off TV as his next appearance was on The Great American Bash PPV as Undertaker beat him in a match and he was never seen again on WWE TV. Hassan being drafted to Smackdown killed his career.

9. NWO drafted to Raw (2002)


Raw’s second pick in the first Draft was the trio of Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and X-Pac as the NWO. This choice could have done great for them but Hall got fired after the “Plane Ride From Hell” incident two months later, X-Pac being sidelined with an Neck Injury in July during that year, and Kevin Nash tearing his quad during a match. Lets just finish off with the NWO in WWE was doomed the minute Hulk Hogan turned babyface.

8. Every ECW draft pick (2007-2010)
ECW was the worst offender of the WWE Draft since their brand was revived in 2006. In 2007, The Boogeyman got drafted to ECW, feuded with Big Daddy V, and then he got an injury that took him off TV for almost two years. In 2008, the United States Champion Matt Hardy got drafted to ECW and he had minimum success as he won the ECW Championship in September 2008 but by the time his reign started, he was an afterthought as Jeff Hardy was chasing for the WWE Championship on the Smackdown brand in which he eventually won it.

7. Triple H traded back to Raw (2004)


When Triple H got drafted to Smackdown in 2004, it was an shocking and unpredictable move. Everyone thought that his “Reign of Terror” on the Raw brand ended but then we find out the next morning that he was traded back to raw for Booker T and The Dudley Boyz. The only Superstar that benefited from the trade was Booker T as he turned heel and feuded with John Cena, The Undertaker and JBL as the Dudleyz were taken off TV by November of that year and HHH’s Reign of Terror continued on Raw for the rest of that year.  

6. Kane Drafted to Raw (2008)


Kane was the ECW Champion (repeat those words in your head) when he got drafted to Raw and he had to drop the belt to Mark henry who was traded to ECW the day after. While Kane was on Raw during this period, he had an terrible feud with Rey Mysterio, costed an DQ finish to the CM Punk vs. Batista match on PPV, and relegated to just another body on the roster within the next year. Another waste of an draft pick.

5. John Morrison, R-Truth, Edge and Chris Jericho drafted to Raw (2010)


2009 was the first full year of the “PG Era” and while Raw was extremely hard to watch that year due to the weekly guest hosts crap, Smackdown was the best TV show that year due to the top stars like CM Punk, Undertaker, Jeff Hardy, Chris Jericho and much more. In the 2010 Draft, Raw’s picks were John Morrison, Edge, Jericho and R-Truth while Smackdown barely got any top stars. This was bad because Smackdown’s viewership before the 2010 Draft has been the highest since 2002-2004 and they took away their 4 biggest Stars away from their brand and what did that amount to? Edge returned to Smackdown later that year, Jericho left the company 5 months later, R-Truth became an joke and John Morrison was in mid card hell until his feud with Sheamus during the King Of The Ring Tournament later that year. What an crappy way to treat the Blue Brand in 2010.

4. The Announcer switch (2008)


So here is how this happened. Melina vs. Mickie James ended via no contest due to Melina receiving an legitimate injury thus we went from one pick to two picks. Jim Ross drafted to Smackdown while Michael Cole was drafted to Raw and from that day on, the commentary team on Raw has not been the same since. Although Jim Ross was about to quit the company, he chose to stay on Smackdown as him and Matt Striker made an very good announce team that year.

3. Kelly Kelly as the first draft pick to Smackdown (2010)


I will go short with this one. Kelly Kelly was the first overall Pick for the Smackdown Brand in 2010 and did anybody cared? no. did anybody got excited? no. It was extremely pointless and that is all i have to say.

2. The 2005 draft structure (2005)
The Draft picks for that year’s draft was not actually bad. But the problem was the way it was structured and i am glad that this only happened once. The Way it was Structured was that once an week, each respective brand has one pick for the entire month of June. During the first week, John Cena was drafted to Raw and Chris Benoit was drafted to Smackdown 3 days later. The Final week, both brands switched it up as they had two picks on their show as Raw drafted Big Show and Rob Van Dam as Smackdown drafted Christian and Batista. Again, not bad picks at all but both brands could have done their picks in one night instead of a span of 5 weeks. 

1. John Cena drafted to Smackdown but then back to Raw later that night (2011)


I do not think anybody who has written an list for the worst WWE draft picks/moments has chosen this moment within their top 5. We all thought that Cena being on Smackdown can boost up its relevance and star power but to only find out that he got drafted back to Raw at the end of the night infuriated me. I remember shutting my TV off when i seen that graphic on the Television as Michael Cole was laughing on commentary. But in retrospect, it was an good move that Cena did not stay on Smackdown or else the best rivalry on Smackdown in 2011 would have not happened (Randy Orton vs. Christian). I hope WWE never pulls off another stunt like that in future drafts.

In my eyes. The “hate” for John Cena is over

I won’t be sporting the latest in ‘Fruity Pebbles’ merchandise from John Cena but I can honestly say that after tonight, he’s earned my admiration. I’m sure he’s relieved. Even though what he did for Sami Zayn was pretty awesome, that’s not why I’m turning in my ‘Cena Hater’ card. 

   

Cena has been eating crap from the WWE Universe for the better part of about five to six years now and tonight was no different. I’m actually glad somebody came up with a new chant to ridicule him because “let’s go Cena, Cena sucks” was played out two years ago. I watched as he took it all in stride, just as he does every other night, but what struck me tonight and engineered this sudden change of heart is the fact that no matter what, John Cena never flinches. I enjoyed him subtly manipulate the Montreal crowd to the point where the cheers drowned out the jeers. Sure, he was pandering like conservative at an NRA rally, but what else is he to do? Break character and “turn heel” (by the way, if you think that, you’re lost beyond all reason and there is no help for you). No, because you don’t become the top guy and stay the top guy for more than a decade by basing your reactions upon the whims of wrestling fans who are more fickle than a bipolar convention. Besides, in my opinion, him telling the fans what he thinks of them in response to their constant ragging would be the easy way out. The irony would be that those same haters would still give Cena the treatment because their little brains probably wouldn’t be able to process NOT hating him for whatever reason.  
As far as being the top guy goes, sure you can hate him for the way that the WWE stuffed him repeatedly down our collective gullets, but take a step back for a second and ask yourself is that really his fault? Sure, he was positioned as the face of the company and has always played a major role in WWE programming, but isn’t that the kind of dependability you want from your top guy? Save for his injuries, he doesn’t take days off, he still works house shows, and despite his reputed “five moves of death” (plus the new springboard cutter), you can tell that he never phones in his performances. Other wrestlers such as The Rock, Kevin Nash, Warrior, Bret Hart has their “five moves of death” as well. But again, most importantly, he’s still here. He’s outlasted the C.M. Punks and Kurt Angles of the world, and will certainly outlast Daniel Bryan (I hate disclaimers, but I will say if you think I’m throwing shade at either of those guys, you should have a seat next to the “turn Cena heel” guys). 
Who would have believed that the fresh faced Cena, during a backstage segment with The Undertaker after his first match against Angle would still be going strong all these years later? He’s been successful during every transitional phase the WWE has been through throughout his tenure with the company. From Ruthless Aggression to the WWE Universe era, he hasn’t missed a beat. Dear internet promoters and bookers, I ask, would you crown an undependable, oft-injured, locker room cancer YOUR world champion fifteen times? I’ll wait… 
The one thing i will also say is that for the most part within the last few years, anything that touches Cena’s direction is an death sentance to a long road down the ladder. Look at Bray Wyatt last year, Nexus in 2010, Ryback in 2013, and Rusev now. 

Continue to hate John Cena and boo him until your little hearts are content and your voice starts to crack, but don’t ever question his passion, love for the business or his loyalty to the WWE. To do that would only signify that the hatred has consumed and blinded you and you’re incapable of being objective. Will I ever cheer John Cena at a live event? Nope. Buy an armband? Nurp? Chide his haters and tell them they’re wrong? Not a chance. But I won’t continue to be so blind as to just hate him on principle for everything he does. That’s a step in the right direction. I’m sure John Cena will sleep better at night knowing that yours truly is no longer one of his biggest haters. 

Video Game Reviews: WWE 2K15

With the last gen versions of WWE 2K15 (Playstation 3/Xbox 360) getting a universal negative reception, can the current gen versions (PS4/Xbox One) deliver the hype? I am Julian Cannon and I am reviewing the Playstation 4 version of WWE 2K15.

IMG_2730.JPG

This game looks more close to real life than ever this time. From the camera angles to the lighting and the arenas along with the detailed look on the superstars and divas, this is the best looking WWE game to date. Most of the superstars and divas had their entire body scanned for the game. The ring was even scanned so it can look exactly like it is on TV. Everything may look a little smaller than the previous games but it will grow on you in time.

The roster is actually a huge let down. Compare the roster on last year’s WWE 2K14 to this game and you will notice that last year’s game had the better roster. It is good to see the addition of new NXT superstars such as Sami Zayn, Adrian Nevelle, Bo Dallas, Rusev and more, the rest of the roster is the weakest since Smackdown vs. Raw 2008. Many of the superstars are very outdated with their attires and music. Most notably, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins have their shield attire and music. However there are a few legends in the roster such as Booker T, Rob Van Dam, Kevin Nash, Ultimate Warrior and some good ones including The Wyatt Family, The Usos, Xavier Woods, Big E and more but some of the superstars in the game are exact copies of themselves (for example, current Batista and retro Batista should be just one character with a costume change instead of two separate characters).

IMG_2728.JPG

The gameplay has changed drastically for this year’s game. A new chain wrestling mini-game has been implemented to make matches play out more realistically. Pressing the grapple button at the beginning of the match will initiate a collar-and-elbow tie up. From there, each opponent will press one of three face buttons to place their opponent into a side headlock, a wrist lock or a waist lock with a rock-paper-scissors style outcome. (Headlock beats Wrist lock, Wrist lock beats Waist lock, Waist lock beats Headlock.) Whomever wins will place their opponent in the corresponding hold while both players rotate the right analog stick to find a “sweet spot”. If the attacker finds it first, they’ll perform a move, if the defender finds it first, they’ll gain the upper hand. Additionally, the attacking wrestler can strike or wrench the opponent’s limb, making it harder for them to find the sweet spot. This mini-game only happens 2-3 times during the match and can be turned off via the options menu. Strikes have returned to their normal speed with improved collision and selling animations from the opponent. Unlike in previous games, superstars will not stand up immediately after taking a bump or slam, the player must rotate the right analog stick in order to stand up.

The stamina system returns in this game but it has changed as well. It is a three-tier stamina meter which controls the pace of a match. Each move that is performed, especially striking and running, will drain the stamina meter. During the first tier, the wrestler will be full of energy and perform moves easily. During the second tier, the wrestler will begin to slow down. In the third tier, the wrestler will be completely exhausted, even being unable to perform their finishing moves should it drop too low. Although the stamina meter cannot be turned off, stamina will slowly regenerate as long as a meter is not depleted and can be adjusted to drain more slowly. The game’s submission system has been revamped. The “Breaking Point” submission system has been replaced with a two part circular gauge. The mechanic of the system remains mostly the same, but players only have to mash a single button rather than all four.

Wake-up taunt finishers are now known as “Charged Finishers” which combines the taunt & finisher into a single animation by pressing the finisher button when the opponent is grounded. Signature moves can now be stored as well. Catch and Catapult finishers have also returned. Both fighting styles and skill sets have been brought in to ensure that the characters behave more like their real-life counterparts. For example, high flyers like Rey Mysterio will not do power moves and will focus on diving and springboard moves while giants like Big Show cannot climb the turnbuckle and will focus on power moves. Superstars who cannot climb to the top rope can climb to the second rope and deliver moves such as Bret Hart’s elbow drop or Big Show’s slingshot body splash. The gameplay changes take some time to get used to so you will have to play around with it for a few times but if you do not like the new controls, you can revert to the controls from last year’s game.

IMG_2729-0.JPG

The 2K Showcase focuses on two rivalries. One of them focuses on the Triple H and Shawn Michaels feud which began in SummerSlam 2002 and ended in Bad Blood 2004 and the other is the CM Punk and John Cena feud that began in the summer of 2011 and ended in February 2013. I personally liked the HHH/HBK feud more than Punk/Cena but there should have been more feuds added to this mode such as Rock/Austin, Hulk Hogan/Randy Savage, Bret Hart/Kevin Nash and more that can fill up this mode but choosing only two out of many raises more questions than answers. The way you play these feuds is the same dragging style that was featured since WWE 13. Fight until a certain part of the body changes to red, do objectives, cutscene and repeat. I felt that this style of cut and paste should have not happened in this game. Two games to have this style is enough, three is overdoing it.

The MyCareer mode is the best mode in the entire game period. You take your created superstar and you build his career (cannot create divas on this version of the game). You start all the way at the bottom in the performance center, then to NXT. After you reach the ranks there, you will then head on to Raw and Smackdown and eventually to main event WrestleMania and become a WWE Hall of Famer. During this mode, whatever you do, outcomes in the experience such as wrestling as a Babyface or heel, forming alliances, and etc. there is a never ending cycle to this so it can get repetitive down the line. Also, There is a 1-5 star match rating system that will rate matches based on technique, pacing and momentum, with squash matches getting lower ratings and back-and-forth matches getting higher ratings.

There is new feature that allows you to import images from your computer to the game for created wrestlers but I couldn’t access this feature at the time I was reviewing this game due to the servers not being open yet. Also, returning from WWF No Mercy a very long time ago, every superstar and diva in this game is editable. You can change their entire look but you cannot change their hairstyles. The biggest blunder is that you can only create 25 superstars.

This is the point where it gets very disappointing. Players can no longer create divas, arenas, championships, finishers, use custom soundtracks (although an update to next gen consoles will fix this soon), and the only preset custom entrance for custom superstars is the one where the superstar is carrying the phone.

There are also many and I mean MANY matches removed on the current gen consoles

1 vs 1:

– Inferno
– Ladder
– I Quit
– 2 out of 3 Falls
– Special Referee (yet is in the showcase mode)
– Casket (yet is in the Showcase mode)
– 3 stages of hell (Yet is in the showcase mode)
– Backstage Brawl

2 vs 2:

– Tornado Tag
– Extreme Rules
– Hell in a Cell
– Ladder
– Steel Cage
– Table
– TLC
– Elimination Tornado
– Elimination Table
– Mixed
– Backstage Brawl

Triple Threat:

– Falls Count Anywhere
– 2 out of 3 Falls
– No DQ
– Ladder
– Steel Cage
– TLC
– Backstage Brawl

Fatal 4 Way/4-Man:

– Battle Royal
– Hell in a Cell
– Ladder
– Steel Cage
– Table
– TLC
– Falls Count Anywhere
– 2 out of 3 Falls
– No DQ
– Backstage Brawl

6-Man:
– Elimination Chamber Tag
– Championship Scramble (Was removed in 2k14, but notable still)

Handicap Matches:
– All handicap matches

Final thoughts: if you want this game, the only good things are the MyCareer mode and the new gameplay features. You cannot hype a game this much for 6 months and then give us a half-assed game with missing features. 2K showcase is just a copy and paste of 30 years of WrestleMania from last year’s game and the Attitude era mode from WWE 13. I cannot find a reason why to spend $60 plus tax on a game that presents only half of what last year’s game had. If they kept all of those features in, this would have beat out last year’s game. I know this year’s game engine is built from ground up but that is no excuse to remove many features especially for the ones in the create suite community. The decision to take away the ability of creating divas is a slap in the face to every women who plays WWE games. Although you can create divas on the last gen version, that is not the point. My conclusion is that everyone should wait for next year’s game instead or keep 2K14 until next year. This game gets a final rating of 5.5/10

5 Reasons why wrestling fans should get the WWE Network

Once again WWE has surprised the WWE Universe. Last week at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, Vince McMahon along with other notable WWE superstars and personalities officially announced the launch of the WWE Network.

1497771_10151887835636443_2049888328_n

The specific details of the Network have been rumored for months, but with the irresistible force (the inclusion of all 12 WWE pay-per-views – including WrestleMania) meeting the immovable object (the “No way, Seriously??” price point), shit just got real. The 24/7 Network + Video on Demand service is the first of its kind.

After listening to the highly entertaining and informative press conference, it is clear that the WWE Network is a monumental step on how wrestling fans will consume content.

Here are five reasons why the WWE Network is a must have for any wrestling fan around the world:

#1: 24/7 LIVE FEED

A 24/7 network that is strictly wrestling. It’s a wrestling fan’s dream come true. You’ll feel the same adrenaline-pumping emotion when you watched Hulk Hogan body Slam Andre the Giant for the first time in front of 93,000 screaming fans.

No more NCIS before RAW or Sharknado (it’s not the worst movie in the world) before SmackDown. The WWE Network will have wrestling related content streaming all day every day, not to mention pre-shows, post-shows, behind the scenes action and interviews from superstars at RAW and SmackDown every week. Never before has there been so much content available to the WWE Universe.

#2: ORIGINAL SERIES ON THE NETWORK

Not a fan of Total Divas? Have no fear; there is no doubt that the WWE Network will have at least one exclusive series tailored just for you. Here is a brief run-down of each series announced at the press conference:

Legends House: A spin-off of MTV’s Real World – 8 former WWE superstars and personalities such as Roddy Piper, Mean Gene Okerlund and Pat Patterson will be living under one roof.  Of course, a camera crew is there to catch all of the hilarious, emotional and heart-stopping moments that these Legends endure in their everyday lives.

WrestleMania Rewind: With WrestleMania Rewind, the WWE Universe will get never-before-seen interviews and reactions from past and present superstars that have performed at the “Showcase of the Immortals”. Superstars such as Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton talk about their all-time favorite WrestleMania moments, Shawn Michaels talks about “the perfect match” he had with The Undertaker at WrestleMania 25 and Andre the Giant has a sit-down interview after his match with Big John Studd at WrestleMania 1. These are just some of the things that will be showcased on this series.

WWE Countdown: WWE Countdown is a one hour long series that will feature the top…well, whatever you can think of really. The very best matches, factions, catchphrases, villains, entrances, finishing moves, couples, managers, tag teams, divas and moments are just some of the categories highlighted at the press conference.

Monday Night War: Ah, of course, the Monday Night War. Everything you want and need to know about the battle between WWE and WCW will be featured in this series. Get exclusive reactions from superstars such as The Undertaker, Triple H and Shawn Michaels as they witnessed the fight right in front of their eyes. Did they honestly think they were going to go out of business? Find out by tuning in!

NXT: What better way to scout future talent and get behind a new favorite superstar than by watching WWE’s extremely popular developmental program NXT? Finally, wrestling fans will have an easily accessible, hassle-free way to watch the young superstars of tomorrow showcase their talents and try to make a name for themselves as they climb the ladder for a spot on the main roster.

#3: LIBARIES OF WWE, WCW, ECW AND MORE

Get ready for more 80′s, 90′s & 2000′s wrestling action than you can handle. The WWE Network will have over 100,000 hours (4,166 days) of WWE, WCW and ECW footage, including every WWE, WCW & ECW PPV in history – as well as every single episode of RAW, SmackDown that has ever aired.

It would take you 11 years to watch all the footage the WWE Network has to offer – and that’s just what will be available at launch.

The WWE Universe will also have access to replays of RAW, SmackDown, Main Event, Superstars and NXT each and every week with just the simple click of a button.

#2: ALL 12 MONTHLY PPVS INCLUDED

One of the main reasons why the WWE has sold me into subscribing to the WWE Network is their dedication and vision when it comes to showcasing past and present PPVs. With the WWE Network, not only are you going to get all 12 monthly PPVs, but you will have the chance to relive every single WWE, WCW and ECW PPV in history.

In the mood to watch some old Mania’s before WrestleMania 30 airs? Just type “WrestleMania” in the search box and you will see a list of all 29 events. The same goes for any other PPV your heart desires.  That’s right, no more typing in “watch Royal Rumble 2002 for free” into the Google search engine.

Oh, what’s that? I haven’t convinced you into buying the WWE Network yet? The next category might change your mind.

wwe-ppvs-635x130

#1: THE PRICE

This one is the proverbial Stone Cold Stunner that seals the deal and wins you your first WWE Championship in front of 90,000 screaming fans – with your 22 year old fitness-model girlfriend eagerly waiting for you backstage.

For just $9.99 per month, this is what you’re getting if you subscribe to the WWE Network:

  • A 24/7 live stream of WWE programming
  • Over 100,000 hours of archives and exclusive footage
  • New series such as Legends House, WrestleMania Rewind, WWE Countdown and the Monday Night War(s)
  • All 12 monthly PPV’s
  • Every single WWE, WCW and ECW PPV in history.
  • Every episode of RAW and SmackDown in WWE history

It is astonishing how cheap the WWE Network is going to cost considering all of the content that will be displayed on a 24/7 basis.  Instead of paying over $600 a month for PPVs every year, you’re paying just $9.99, and that’s one hell of a bargain if you ask me. The WWE could have charged $20-$25 a month and Twitter still would have blown up. Come on, this is a no brainer for wrestling fans.

At launch, the WWE Network will be available on virtually any platform, including WWE.com, iOS, Android & Kindle devices (via the WWE App), Playstation 3 & 4, XBOX 360. Support for XBOX One and Smart TVs is coming this summer. All you have to do is sign up at WWE.com, follow the simple instructions and you’re all set. It really couldn’t be easier.

As John Cena announced out at the press conference, the WWE Network will officially launch on February 24, 2013 at 11:05pm directly after Monday Night RAW has concluded. The WWE has struck gold with this idea and the network will truly be a one of a kind experience and will change the entire landscape of the professional wrestling industry

20140102_EPLIGHT_Network_Announcement_C-635x357

Also to note out, According to a report from F4Wonline.com, WWE sent out a memo stating that  footage of Benoit will be allowed to air on its new network, but with a caveat.  There will reportedly be an advisory played before every piece of video he  appears on.

Money in the bank anthology review

Money in the bank anthology review

Was this the match that used to steal the show at wrestlemanias? Is it something that should make a return to wrestlemania? Well that’s up for debate but Wrestlemania is where the money in the bank first started and it’s at Wrestlemania 21 that we see the first money in the bank match that the host The Miz introduces us to and tells us about the revolutionary concept.

The very next year this great match returned and maintained being an integral part of wrestlemania until wrestlemania 26. Some fantastic winners of the briefcase such as CM Punk, edge and the shocking Jack Swagger that no one saw winning!

We now have a match that became its own ppv in 2010 with a briefcase for either show, one for Raw and one for smackdown. Kane still is the only man who won the briefcase and successfully cashed it in that very night against Rey Mysterio.

I also like the fact that this anthology also includes this years matched from the 2013 money in the bank ppv which saw Damien Sandow and Randy orton succeed.

The blu-ray exclusives also have each and every cash in from the winners, whether it is the host himself, The Miz, Dolph Ziggler or Rob Van Dam.

The matches are far too crazy for me to write about but whether it’s Shelton Benjamin running up a ladder, Jeff hardy jumping onto a helpless edge lying on a ladder or seeing Chris Jericho come so close only for CM Punk to snag his leg in a ladder rung, it’s all here and much more. If you’ve never seen a mitb match, you owe yourself this great pleasure.

Previously we have had the ladder match 1&2 sets released but this is one of the best sets that I’ve watched and a real good watch with like minded wrestling fans.

The release date for this great set is 4th November and you can purchase it directly here – http://www.wwedvd.co.uk/straight-mitb-ladder-match-anthology-p-11761.html?osCsid=0a9d88f88c117cc507a81c31456dd560. Only £22.99 on blu-Ray or £19.99 on DVD.
