For many of us, this year's Road to Wrestlemania has been a disapointing afair. Sometimes I just don't understand how the WWE has gotten to the place it's in. In this weeks ESPN Power Rankings, Jon Robinson takes the WWE to task with these lovely two paragraphs:
"For a company that prides itself on listening to its fans, I wonder how much weight it gives to 3 hours and 20 minutes of near silence (except for the very loud "You can’t wrestle" chant aimed at Fandango, even if he did deliver a sweet flying leg drop). I think the dead crowd speaks volumes about the upcoming WrestleMania card and the lazy booking that goes along with setting up a string of rematches people weren’t really clamoring to see in the first place.
In fact, for the first time in years, I find myself more intrigued by the undercard than the main events, as I think matches like The Shield versus Orton/Sheamus/Big Show, Team Hell No versus Dolph Ziggler and Big E. Langston (Ziggy and Big E.), and Mark Henry versus Ryback all have the potential to steal the spotlight from the series of higher-profile matches where the outcomes hold little doubt or interest (so wait, Triple H, who was retired, is forced out of retirement and then "tricked" into wrestling a retirement match!?!)."
Ouch. Do you think the WWE will listen to ESPN or are they just another mark in the eyes of Vince McMahon?
