WHAT?: Last Night Was A Good Night For The Good Guys

“WHAT?” was a weekly rundown of wrestling related news I used to write on my old site. When I stopped writing about wrestling I had used this column as a monthly review for things happening in pop culture and I must say that it was one of the most popular features on that site. I have gotten numerous request to resurrect the “WHAT?” column on this site in a more approachable manner, and after some consideration I have agreed to do just that. “WHAT?” has gone from a weekly column, to a monthly column, and now I present to you “WHAT?” in a daily format. This was the headlines before the “Headlines” so any comparison can be nipped in the butt right now. I will try to have these up daily or at least every other day depending on the news day. This column is not exclusive to wrestling and I might add things I find of interest in the world of pop culture, but for the most part it will cover wrestling related news. I know I had retired from IWC literature, but the feedback since making a return to the IWC with this new site and writing style has been tremendous. From comments, to Twitter and Emails, I have never received so much positive feedback as I have this week and I am grateful for that. If it works why fix it, right? Anyways, this seems to be something I’m good at so I will be sticking with it for the foreseeable future. I want this site to grow in ways my other site could never do, so I will try to provide the best possible content I possibly can. For those that have never read a “WHAT?” column before, “WHAT?” used to be a chant started by “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, so this is meant to be read in the same vein as those chants. I say something, “WHAT?”, I say something else, “WHAT?”, so on and so forth. Anyways, enough of the introduction let’s get right to it.

Last night WWE held its annual “Extreme Rules” PPV and if you are a fan of the good guys then this was the PPV for you. I admit to not watching this live, but I’m watching it now as I type this. Here are the quick results:

Last Man Standing Match – Randy Orton vs CM Punk – Winner by KO: Randy Orton

Tables Match for the WWE United States Championship – Sheamus vs Kofi Kingston – Winner and new WWE United States Champion: Kofi Kingston

Tag Team Country Whipping Match – Jerry “The King” Lawler and Jim Ross vs Michael Cole and Jack Swagger – Winners: Michael Cole and Jack Swagger

Falls Count Anywhere Match – Cody Rhodes vs Rey Mysterio – Winner: Rey Mysterio

No Disqualification Loser Leaves WWE Match – Michelle McCool vs Layla – Winner: Layla

Ladder Match for the World Heavyweight Championship – Alberto Del Rio vs Christian – Winner and new World Heavyweight Champion: Christian

Lumberjack Match for the WWE Tag Team Championship – Kane and The Big Show vs Wade Barrett and Ezekiel Jackson – Winners and still WWE Tag Team Champions: Kane and The Big Show

Triple Threat Steel Cage Match for the WWE Championship – John Cena vs John Morrison Vs The Miz – Winner and new WWE Champion: John Cena

WHAT?

For those keeping score at home, three WWE Championships changed hands last night and all the new champions are faces. Extreme Rules proved to be a very bad night for WWE heels and I can’t say that I’m really disappointed. I usually cheer for the heels, but WWE has been overtaken by so many heels lately that it makes me want to cheer for the good guys instead. Before I move on to other Extreme Rules news I would like to take a look at the new champions. Let’s start with Kofi Kingston, a guy who wasn’t even scheduled to have a match at the PPV ended up winning the WWE United States Championship after a hard fought Tables Match against Sheamus. As a result, the newly Raw drafted superstar has brought the championship back to Monday Night Raw. I’ve read the comments online on various forums and blogs with fans disappointed in another Kofi Kingston championship run, but c’mon now, Kofi Kingston is a hard working superstar who wins championships on a consistent basis. He is very over with the fans and is an excellent role model for kids. Kingston shows that hard work and dedication to your craft really pays off. I don’t get how anyone can say that  he is boring in the ring. Kingston is one of the more exciting wrestlers on the whole damn roster. Maybe his lack of promo time hurts his character a bit, but in the ring he is pretty damn good. I guess the IWC hates every face in the existence of WWE history just for the fuck of it.

WHAT?

Even with most people on the Internet hating on the faces, there is no way in hell that anyone can front on Christian. He is one of those superstars who have been around forever, wrestling at a high level and delivering great promos, but has never had the chance to win the big one. At Extreme Rules Christian did just that. I can’t lie, when Christian unhooked that World Heavyweight Championship I marked the fuck out waking up my wife in the process (sorry babe). Sure it was predictable booking with the retirement of Edge and all, but that doesn’t make this moment any less special. I can honestly say that I am proud of Christian. He deserves this moment and I can only hope that he has a decent run with the “big gold belt”. He fucking earned that shit.

WHAT?

My recent John Cena column couldn’t have had better timing. Cena went on to win his 17th championship in the WWE last night at Extreme Rules and I couldn’t be any happier. Sure I share some of the same sentiments Cena haters have expressed throughout the years, but writing that column gave a new appreciation for John Cena. My feeling is that Cena will end up holding on to the WWE Championship until SummerSlam where Alberto Del Rio finally fulfills his destiny. With that said, I wouldn’t be surprised if he held the championship all the way until Wrestlemania 28 and defends it against The Rock. Like I said in the Cena column, if I was him I would hold the championship for another 380 days and I hope he does that just to spite all of his haters in the IWC. John Cena fucking rules, bitches!!!

WHAT?

In other Extreme Rules news, the always flawless Michelle McCool lost her No Disqualification Loser Leaves WWE Match against her former Lay-Cool partner, Layla. This was a monumental loss for womans wrestling the world over. Michelle McCool was one of the best WWE Divas of all time. She took a loser like Layla who lost almost 99.9% of her matches and made her a viable contender in the Divas division and without Michelle in her corner, Layla would have never won the WWE Womans Championship. Sure Lay-Cool desecrated the championship by breaking it in half, but let’s be honest, the Divas division hasn’t been taken serious since Trish Stratus departed from the company as an active competitor. McCool has been at the forefront of the Divas division for a while now with most of the major angles in that division centered around her character. Some have speculated that her push was due to her relationship with WWE superstar, The Undertaker. While I agree with this to a certain extent, there is no way that I can deny Michelle’s in ring talent. With or without her personal relationship, I feel that she would have been destined for greatness. I am saddened to see her go and wish her luck on her future endeavours, whatever they may be. Oh, and please stop saying that she isn’t hot. Michelle is a beautiful woman with a tight body. I would so……..

WHAT?

As Michelle sat in the middle of the ring crying after realizing the ramifications of her match, the beast formerly known as Awesome Kong made her WWE debut by laying the smackdown on Michelle. Kong, who will now go by the ring name Kharma, layed Michelle out with her Implant Buster finisher. Kharma proved to be a big bitch at Extreme Rules. Even though I will miss Michelle tremendously, I must say that I am excited for the future of Kharma in the Divas division. Not every woman fits the skinny model type that WWE usually likes to hire so this will change the perception of what it means to be a Diva. I had written about this on my other site and I am glad WWE finally stopped discriminating on the bigger girls. After all, big girls need love too.

WHAT?

Tune in to Monday Night Raw tonight as The Rock stops by to celebrate his 39th birthday. It is being reported that a few of The Rock’s celebrity friends will be in the house to help celebrate this joyous occasion. I fully expect John Cena to crash the party and tease a WWE Championship match with The Rock at Wrestlemania 28. Add to that all the fallout from Extreme Rules, and Monday Night Raw promises to be compelling television. Don’t miss it.

WHAT?

Batista’s MMA career looks like it’s over before it even started. It is said that when UFC brought rival promotion StrikeForce, Batista lost interest in pursuing his MMA career. Batista was signed to StrikeForce and refuses to fight for UFC which lead some to believe that there is bad blood between Batista and UFC owner Dana White. I think Batista should have had at least one fight with Brock Lesner as I feel that it would have brought in a lot of PPV buys from wrestling fans. Oh well. Fuck MMA it’s all about the WWE and WWE seems interested in re-signing Batista to a 3 year contract. With talent such as Edge retiring, Chris Jericho getting his grove on, and CM Punk reportedly leaving WWE soon, this is a good move by the company. They need to get certified stars in order to put the future stars over and Batista is a certified star. If he does end up coming back, I would love for him to reprise his heel role from early 2010.

WHAT?

Jesse White, son of one of my personal favorite heels growing up, Big Van Vader, has been signed to a WWE developmental contract. I am very excited over this news. If White is anything like his father then he will be an unstoppable beast of a man. I haven’t seen him in action so I’m going to try and dig up some of his footage from Japan, but like I said before Vader was one of my favorite heels so I have high hopes. I remember when Vader punched a talk show host when they asked him if wrestling was fake. He is also the man responsible for Mick Foley’s missing ear and I will never forget when he first went to WWE and fucked up Gorilla Monsoon. Classic shit.

WHAT?

On June 7, 2011, WWE will release the highly anticipated 3-disc DVD set of “The Very Best Of WCW Monday Nitro”. I haven’t been buying WWE DVD releases lately, but this is a must buy for me. This is straight from my favorite era of wrestling. WWE fans don’t like to give WCW any credit for the popularity of professional wrestling, but without Nitro there would have been no Attitude Era. “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan, NWO, Sting, the Cruiserweights and the rest of the WCW roster were just as responsible for the late 90’s wrestling boom as WWE guys like “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Degeneration X, The Rock and others were. WCW is an important piece of wrestling history so you can bet your sweet ass that I will be purchasing this DVD.

WHAT?

In non wrestling news, Osama Bin Laden is fucking dead. Deceased. Muerto. Gone forever, never to terrorize anything ever again. It took nearly 10 years for us to find this fucker and I am finally glad that he got what was due to him. I feel that he should have had a trial and that his death should have been a more public affair, but I understand why he was executed the way he was, shot right in his motherfucking turban. If you don’t understand it then let me explain. If we would have held Osama and gave him a trial, his people would start rioting. Killing him as soon as we found him, and by WE, I mean the United States Of America, killed any hopes for the Afghans to revel Osama in death and look up to him as a martyr. I hope that everyone that lost someone on September 11, 2001 can finally find the closure they have so desperately needed for the last 10 years. For the record, Osama used a female as a shield when we raided his place so he will die how he lived, a coward. This is a very historic moment and I am proud to have lived in these times to have seen it. I am proud to be an American.

WHAT?

After his win at Extreme Rules, John Cena addressed the demise of Osama Bin Laden in an un-aired clip. Seriously, how can you people hate this guy? John Cena fucking rules!!!!!!!!

WHAT?

AMERICA, FUCK YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yeah I agree on McCool. She put over Layla and Kong on her way out, sold the defeat like it devastated her and had a very respectable back and forth match with her former sidekick. I don’t know what more people wanted from her. And yeah, she’s pretty fit.

    • May 2, 2011 at 3:27 pm

      The IWC will never be pleased with anything not related to the Attitude Era. Shit, I bet they think Bertha Fey is more respectable than a Michelle McCool only because she is from the 90’s. Time changes everything, they need to accept wrestling for what it has become and stop living in the past or move on.

    Oh, and if you’re looking for more wrestling content I’d like to throw my hat in the ring. There’s a sample of a piece on my blog (my failed John Report submission) and I’ve got several more in the process of being written.

    • May 2, 2011 at 3:41 pm

      Your column was great. I left a comment and for some weird reason it wont show up. My comments are not appearing on other WordPress blogs because this happened to me earlier as well. Kinda pissing me off, but yes, click Kieran’s name for a well written column on Big Show. I know, Big Show, lol, but I promise it is a good read.

      • May 2, 2011 at 4:10 pm

        Yeah you were marked as spam but I corrected that. Thanks for reading and thanks for the endorsement, got way more hits than usual off the back of it. Much appreciated.
        I’m working on a Randy Orton piece at the moment about how WWE wasted his momentum last year. I don’t intend to just parrot the IWC standard lines, that’s why I like this site.

          I’m trying to build a community up in this bitch, lol. So far so good. I will be on the look out for that Orton post, sounds interesting.

              I’m going to get my Raw discussion on over at TJR but I will check that out tonight for sure. As far as auditions, you won me over with that Big Show column. Maybe you will see the Orton column over here in the morning with some JCITY magic added to it. Yes. (or no if for any reason you don’t want me to use it).

    Wow….reading your stuff makes me lose confidence in my own writing ability. Instead of bad things in high school you should have pursued journalism where you could have been a famous reporter and eventual WWE creative writer and you’d be rich and better than us all.

    ANYWAYS…..
    Extreme Rules sounded good,
    – I’m so glad Christian FINALLY is the world champ and boring Del Rio isn’t
    – I much rather have John Morrison win but at least The Miz isn’t WWE Champion anymore!!!! Miz sucks!!!!

    Osama’s dead made it cool to be a good guy again. Well…time to go read to the eldery.

    • May 2, 2011 at 3:48 pm

      Remember, I’m the crazy guy from the ghetto who can’t write worth a damn, lol. Practice makes perfect so don’t doubt yourself. When I first started I wasn’t as good as I believe I am now. I’ve only been blogging since the end of August 2010 so I guess I am a fast learner. I used to be a very good student at school, but I had a very bad attitude and did things I shouldn’t have, but hey that’s life. Shit happens. Yes I would like to get rich, but no I don’t think that would make me better than anybody else. We are all humans in this crazy world trying to get by.

      Obama killed Osama. It has a nice ring to it. They should print that shit on a shirt.

    No disrespect to Mr. Canton but I’m coming here 1st from now on. John has a lot of other writers now and once upon a time I used to go there for HIS opinion. The other guys do their part too but we hear less and less of John. With that said, you are the main writer here and its 100% your opinion so for wrestling news with an honest fan opinion I will be here. I reviewed the ppv on tkotheprototype.blogspot.com I enjoyed the event with my bois, paid to see christian win the strap. Truth was in rare form, Kharmas debut was excellent, cena won for the right reason (tonight) the young g.o.a.t. randy Orton finished off punk and the prematch video for Cody vs Rey was chain off…AND we got rid of the prick osama…great night for America and wwe

    • May 2, 2011 at 4:02 pm

      That’s what’s up. I’m going to check the review in a few. Oh by the way I’m taking all of our small sites and putting them on the blogroll. This is the web so I want to interconnect everyone together. I know this is a small site, but I will try my best to represent this shit like one of the majors. Sometimes you have to fake it till you make it and i’m going to fucking make it, by force if I have to, lol. I ain’t gonna on some “I’m too good for yall” shit. We can all shine up in this bitch.

  5. May 2, 2011 at 4:00 pm

    I have no idea why John didn’t take you…yet he let’s frickin’ Doctor Money write? He’s even worse than me!

    I bet John just didn’t want you to overshadow him.

    • May 2, 2011 at 4:08 pm

      If my site was major like that with tens of thousands of hits a day I could understand why he wouldn’t want it associated with something like therealshyt.com. I bet if I made this site from jump I would have had a better chance. I want to be more than a mere writer, I want to be a brand name. This is only the beginning. Me and John have an understanding though. I got nothing but love for him (no homo). I feel like he throws alley oops my way from time to time and I have to capitalize on it. I don’t think he even notices that shit, but his site has helped me alot. I don’t think Doctor Money is a bad writer at all. I don’t get why people don’t like him, but then again there was a time where I boycotted his columns, lol. He’s cool in my book though.

      • May 2, 2011 at 4:35 pm

I keep reading about the Internet Wrestling Community, the HipHop community, but I don’t see no fucking community whatsoever. Everyone has their own agendas. 95% of the sites I see can give a fuck less about the people that make them what they are. I want to promote unity. If you fucks with me I will fucks with you (pause).

    Its so funny how Americans murder a man, and they think life is better and everything is going to be better and all their worries and cares go away.

    Bin Laden was a person who didn’t like America. If you study him, he had a lot of reasons. What he did was wrong of course, but killing him? It doesn’t solve anything.

    Terrorism = many individuals committing acts under a belief. His death does not uninstill that belief from his followers. His followers will spread those beliefs.

    If anything, killing him and burying his body at sea rather than trialling him or giving the body to family causes more anti-american sentiment in those regions.

    The death of Bin Laden means absolutely nothing. And celebrating someones death is pretty vile if you ask me.

    • May 2, 2011 at 10:50 pm

      We didn’t kill him for no reason. When criminals get sentenced to death in prison it is expected that they die, by whatever means they were sentenced to die. Osama was the criminal mastermind behind the death of over 7,000 Americans and even more deaths on his hand as a result of the war that followed the September 11 attacks. We as Americans are rejoicing because justice has been served. Too bad we can’t kill him 7,000+ more times to make up for every life lost due to that coward who hid like a pussy for almost 10 years. I’m not even mad at normal afghan citizens who by the way are also happy this fucker is not controlling them anymore. I hope the terrorist brainwashing is over and the people of Afghanistan can live normal productive lives instead of wanting to kill Americans just because they don’t believe in our ideology. Fuck Osama. From the bottom of my heart.

    • May 2, 2011 at 10:54 pm

      He got what he had coming to him. Just because he had “reasons” to hate America means nothing. Did he have a reason to murder someone husband? Wife? Child? Mother? No. He deserved this.

    Did America have reason to murder those 9 innocent Libyans killed the other day?

    Oh they were after Gaddafi (they didn’t get him).

    Guess thats fine then.

    If they aren’t American we can kill them right?

    • May 3, 2011 at 12:40 am

      I don’t believe I said anything about that. I don’t know anything about that right now so I can’t give a fair opinion. Understand, I’m not supporting the American government. I’m supporting innocent people all around the world. And if the 9 people were truley innocent, the American government was wrong.

      Now how can you think the murder of 9 Libyans was wrong, but what Osama did in 911 wasn’t?

      Whatever, no more arguing on this site or TJR. Believe what you want.

    • May 3, 2011 at 8:08 am

      Those Libyans that died were casualties of war. The people working in the Twin Towers were not at war and were 100% innocent.

    O.K. Kofi I love the guy! I am not a fan of his jamaican gimmick that type of song and dance jump around shit aint never gonna get him anywhere ever!!! Just ask Koko B Ware, and Shelton Benjamin and don’t forget MVP. They had IT and they were over with the fans but…. As a black man though I don’t think the WWE push the brotha man like they push the traditional types. I am not a racist either reverse or otherwise I just don’t know why the WWE have had less than 5 black world champions in its history. Thats all I’m gonna say about that but Kofi needs to be more serious and start talking more. He’s a great talker got charisma but I don’t think they see him as anything but a high paid jobber. And thats all he’s ever gonna be.

    • May 3, 2011 at 8:21 am

      Kofi Kingston is a way better talent than Koko B Ware could ever dream of being. I agree that Shelton Benjamin should have been destined for greatness, but to me he is the African American version of a John Morrison. All the skills are there, but the promo cutting ability was not there. Granted that Shelton had better mic skills than Morrison, but something was missing. As for MVP, WWE dropped the ball on him big time. I would like to consider MVP a victim of PG. He was pushed seriously and I believed he could have been a credible main eventer for years to come. Unlike Shelton and Morrison, MVP could cut on hell of a captivating promo, but they turned him face way to soon. The reason why I say that he is a victim of PG is because while MVP is talented, he is also a convicted felon. For a major global company to make a convicted felon their main player might cause conflict of interest with sponsors such as Mattel. I give MVP credit, he hasn’t bad mouthed WWE since being gone and hasn’t crossed the line to TNA so there is still hope for a WWE return and hopefully they get it right next time. I don’t necessarily agree with the Kofi being a high paid jobber. Kofi has been at the top of the mid card. He is king of the mid card and stays with a secondary championship. I am sure there are tons of real jobbers that would love to switch positions with him in a heartbeart, ie Zack Ryder. I do see where you are coming from with the whole WWE holding the man down, but I think that in the future, Kofi can be that guy his race can be proud of. If he stays with WWE for a while I see him at least getting the World Heavyweight Championship, but we are at least 3 years away from that. I can only imagine where his career would have been if it wasn’t for the STUPID~! incident with Randell Keith Orton.

      • May 3, 2011 at 9:47 am

        Yeah, I felt WWE threw away what could have been one hell of a captivating storyline with MVP. What could be a better tale of redemption than the convicted felon who’s reformed and turned his life around and worked his ass off to become a world champion. It writes itself. They really dropped the ball there.

    Actually, email me at blacksmithpro@yahoo.com I’ve got some ideas for a whole series of columns if you’re really interested in expanding your wrestling related content.

    GodblessAmerica? :Its so funny how Americans murder a man, and they think life is better and everything is going to be better and all their worries and cares go away.
    Bin Laden was a person who didn’t like America. If you study him, he had a lot of reasons. What he did was wrong of course, but killing him? It doesn’t solve anything.
    Terrorism = many individuals committing acts under a belief. His death does not uninstill that belief from his followers. His followers will spread those beliefs.
    If anything, killing him and burying his body at sea rather than trialling him or giving the body to family causes more anti-american sentiment in those regions.
    The death of Bin Laden means absolutely nothing. And celebrating someones death is pretty vile if you ask me.

    I understand where you are coming from, but I think most people aren’t cheering, because he was killed. No, most are cheering at the closure of the situation.

      Exactly, It’s not the killing we are celebrating. It’s the justice served. Remember, when the United States goes to war it’s against other nations military forces. What Osama did was declare war on American citizens not the military. Big difference.

    Go away for a couple of days and when I check back, things have gotten busier on here lol Good job jcity, it’s always good to have an alternative and while TJR does have its good points, it’s also nice to check out other options. This site is like TNA, minus the poor storytelling, overlong promos and Eric Bicho (theres an old reference for you)and Johns is the WWE. This could be the monday night war we’ve been waiting for :o)

      Eric BICHO!!!!! Now that’s a great reference from my old “Crossing The Line” TNA Impact reviews, lol. I’ve been reading the sites for over a year now so you could consider me a student of the game. I like to think that I have gotten better in the last couple of months, but my writing wasn’t as accessible as it has been on this site. Alternatives are good. I am not too happy with some of the alternatives so I guess I have taken it upon myself to deliver what I feel a legit alternative can be. I don’t ever want this site to be a clone and even if we do cover the same subjects I will try to offer a fresh new perspective that is as visually appealing as it is a good read. Not only that, but I know there are excellent writers out there that can outclass me anyday. Do I feel threaten? Fuck no. I encourage them to join the team. I can learn something from other writing styles and they can enjoy some exposure they might not have had on their own. Not only do I want to be better at writing, but also marketing. I can get others work on the screens of more people over the course of time if I perfect the marketing aspect of blogging. Everyone that hated me will not be able to deny the skills. I plan to make IWC history one day and I want to bring as many people with me as possible be it commentors, writers, or viewers that look on in silence (speak up 🙂 I won’t bite).

    I missed the WHAT? column. I’m totally doing you an article about Kharma, btw.

    I would also like to congratulate the USA for their success. While I’m not American, some Portuguese people died in the Twin Towers and my family was lucky that a cousin of ours decided to skip work because he was ill, or he would have been on that list too.

    God Bless, not only the USA, but all the people that fight for freedom and justice.

      Looking forward to that. I’m glad WWE signed her and it seems that they will use her properly. I had written about how her signing could help out potential future divas here:

      Your cousin was lucky, but it still sucks to have lost friends, co-workers, work, all because of some guy with his own sick and twisted agendas.

      I’m going to start on another “What?” when I get home later. Some interesting WWE news that I’m sure will infuriate some people.
