Into the Wrestling Vault: 4/9/10 Edition


Both Johnny C and I have made our hatred and dismay over the Linda McMahon induced PG-Era and overall state of wrestling well known. We firmly believe that wrestling was far better in the 90's and early 2000's. In fact, even the mid 2000's are much better than the horseshit that is shoved down our throats these days. Consequently, it's no surprise that both John and I have burned countless number of hours looking up old matches, and promos on Youtube, Daily Motion, and the dozens of other websites which host wrestling videos. Now that we have turned ourselves into fancy men (with our own blog) we figured to turn all those wasted hours into blog posts. So join us as we delve into the Wrestling Vault to relive our favorite videos.


Yesterday, I went over why Christian should be main eventer in the WWE. As I was making my case, I mentioned Christian's "feud" with Cena and their Triple Threat Match at Vengeance for the WWE Title. This was match that was long time in the making. Christian had made fun of Cena's rapper gimmick for a while, he stepped up his efforts near the 2005 draft. Eventually, when Cena was drafted to Raw, and made his debut on the Highlight Reel, it was no surprise that Christian came out to challenge Cena. Eric Bischoff (who was GM at the time) made Christian teh #1 Contender of the title. However, the host of the Highlight Reel was not content sitting idly. Jericho attacked Cena to make Eric Bischoff see that he belonged in the match. Thus it was made a Triple Threat Match. On a night filled with great matches (Shawn Michaels vs Kurt Angle) this match managed to stand out due to a good storytelling, tremendous spots, and fast paced action. In fact, it was so good that it was featured on the wonderful History of the WWE Championship DVD .

  1. I loved hearing Cena's voice crack when he yelled "The Champ is here!" And the 5 second pose was classic

  2. This was back when Cena's character actually had balls, and he could do edgy stuff like that. It shows in the crowd reaction too. No way in hell, Cena gets a reaction like that now.
