Thought of the Day – WWE Feuds Are Like Energizer Bunnies

This is something that’s been around for awhile but it’s getting worse.On Raw, Orton beat Del Rio in a 2/3 falls match.  Why did this match happen?  Orton already beat Del Rio in a one on one match and again in a falls count anywhere match.  It’s been established that Orton is superior, so why is the feud continuing?  The same is true of the Sheamus vs. Del Rio feud from a few months ago.  Sheamus beat him clean more than once but the feud just kept going.  That’s one of the big problems WWE has right now: nothing feels like a blowoff match.  It feels like the last match that happens in a feud.  It’s like a movie with no real ending but rather a point where it just stops.  That’s not good storytelling.

    I don’t get why they keep trying to push Del Rio as some kind of threat. He lost to Punk several times, he lost to Sheamus several times and he has now lost to Orton several times. Why am i meant to buy him as a viable threat against top faces when he hasn’t won anything for well over a year.

    And that is what pisses me off about WWE. I like Del Rio as a talent. He has the look of a superstar more than 95% of the roster but he loses all the damn time. It wouldn’t kill them to at least have a few wins over Orton although he did make Orton tap three months ago. If Orton can lose to Mark Henry twice, he can lose to Del Rio and still be Randy Orton. I guess that’s the case for most heels and some faces in the WWE nowadays. Just frustrating.
