    Two things I don't understand

    The way the WWE is going after mania makes no sense to me what so ever. You got them throwing R truth in the feud with The Miz and Cena, someone who has no chance of winning and wasn't even good enough to get a spot at Mania. Why not combine another feud like Punk and Orton at leats then you have 4 possible winners and both feuds are very successful so all you would need is a promo or 2 by Orton and Punk just saying how they want to be champs and when the match is over who ever is champ can continue there feud.

    Number 2 is there where the new Nexus was horrible ( except for Punk that is) the Corre to my surprise worked quite well and looked like they could be a force. But then they waste them on a bullshit feud with the Big Show that went no where, did not include any of there titles in the feud and now there feuding amongst each other with almost no mention of their titles at all. So instead of having 4 over guys destroy the roster and make the audience feel like there titles mean more to them than anything and making the titles feel important again you completely ignore the fact they have them and barely have them defend them.

    Re: Two things I don't understand

    I'm just as confused by the Truth decision as anyone. It makes no sense to me and all considering how awful he is. The only explanation I could think of was that it was a nice way of saying "fuck you" to John Morrison for his alleged heat for whatever the hell happened at Mania with Trish. Idk though, because they could have easily just had Cena go over Truth then. I guess it's just another out to have Miz pin Cena and let Cena go for the title again at the next PPV as well.

    It's clear to anyone who's been paying attention, that R-Truth is most likely taking Morrison's spot in a push right now.

    I don't think he's NEARLY as bad as he's being percieved...but I dont' think he's a Main Eventer, lol.

    Maybe R-Truth played "Hide The Salami" with Pat Patterson for his spot? All joking aside though why don't we at least give him a chance to blow it in the WWE Title match before condemning him as the worst wrestler ever (which he is most certainly not).

    Not only did Morrison screw himself out of this spot but R-Truth isn't a terrible replacement based on his history with John Cena. Remember their thing back when Cena was in Nexus?

    On to The Corre, I just don't think WWE is seeing a whole lot of potential in the group right now and they will be phased out sooner than later.

    Re: Two things I don't understand

    R-Truth being thrown into the WWE title picture was very random, but I am willing to give him a shot. I am not sure why the Corre is breaking up. But, I would like to see Big Zeke turn face and have him feud with Barrett over the IC title. That could be good.

    Re: Two things I don't understand

    If you look at it in Blitz way then it kinda makes it not as bad as it is... Truth and Cena have some history from a while back. It deserves a bit of light, something better then just what it was. Still though, Truth sucks. The only reason this is actually happening I'm sure is because Morrison fucked himself.

    The Corre is just failing right now sadly... they can't seem to make a big impact, and it seems like WWE has no real direction for them. The blow off of the group could make stars out of Zeke and Gabriel, and let Barrett finally stand on his own two feet! I feel bad for Heath though... I don't totally hate the guy like most.

    I have to believe the Corre was never meant to succeed. The way they've been booked and the "second Nexus" stigma that has been attached to them - there's no ignoring how extravagantly they have been set up to fail. If anyone actually, at any point in time, wanted the Corre to succeed - they wouldn't have been called The Corre, they wouldn't have had the current members they have, and they would have done *something* original.

    R Truth's push just seems like a direct "U JELLY?" to John Morrison...

    I think the four way between Orton and Punk along with Miz and Cena would have been a good plan, or if they plan on not having Punk on the show or doing something else they can make it a three way between Orton, Cena and Miz (which would also mean no New Nexus, which is GOOD). Imagine Miz winning in a triple threat against Orton and Cena? And it wouldn't really hurt them as a Triple Threat is an easy way of giving Miz a win without making the two opponents look bad.

    Truth makes no sense - from a booking perspective, he has had no important matches where he's made a significant impact in a long ass time. Not only that, he's probably one of the worst wrestlers on the entire roster. The guy botches like crazy, can't work anything above a crap match.

    The Corre have been booked criminally, but I kinda liked the group. I like 3 of the 4 members quite a lot, but they've just been treated like a joke for a month or so now. They really messed them up, and now they're being split up (pressumably) because stables are bad in WWE, apparently.

    With the exception of the New Nexus, which for some reason are lingering. New Nexus is the worst major stable in WWE ... possibly ever. They suck, all of them and all of them need to leave my television. Punk is far too good for them, but even Punk's "faith" gimmick is poor in comparison to what he was doing beforehand. Punk is somehow making it watchable, but New Nexus is just the worst.

    Re: Two things I don't understand

    I'm really hoping the Corre splits up soon. They have some really good talent in Wade Barrett and Justin Gabriel, and I think WWE should focus on building on these two guys. Big Zeke isn't too bad either, but he needs some work on his ring-work, and Heath Slater, well, I don't see much in him really. Maybe give him a job at Wendy's? :P

    Re: Two things I don't understand

    The way the Corre has been booked recently is nothing short of terrible, but I'm not exactly shocked or surprised by that at all. The in-fighting that we are starting to see is good, as it may make the group a little more interesting.

    Truth being the the WWE Title match is just a big FU to Morrison, nothing more nothing less.

    Wait, I thought Truth got in on his merits of being a hard worker, a loyal company man, and a guy who really and truly believes that the name of the State is Green Bay and NOT Wisconsin!

    Re: Two things I don't understand

    1) Cena/Truth have history

    2) Truth is over as shit

    3) He's been a loyal man to the company, and he's being rewarded. Maybe he's not the "best" in-ring guy to be there, but whatever. It's one PPV. Let the guy enjoy his moment.

    4) Morrison shouldn't have been a dick.

    Oh, yeah, not to mention Morrison has a feud set up already. That being with Ziggler. I'd be much more excited for that than I would be for him being thrown into a title match he won't even win, anyway.

    All of this.

    Yes it's a little random to have Truth in it...but it's not like he doesn't have some good qualities for the WWE.

    Somehow, he IS over, even if the overly critical IWC doesn't see it, and loyalty to a company does mean something sometimes.

    As he said...it's only one PPV, let the man have his moment in the sun...it won't hurt anything IMO.
