WORST: The Hunter’s Wife Becomes The Hunter
AJ Lee and Kaitlyn had a match at Payback based on like three years of personal backstory between the two. It was a good match with a (relatively) clean finish. It had nothing to do with Stephanie McMahon.
But LO, here arrives Big Steph to tell AJ Lee that she’s doing a number on feminism and ruining the Divas division, or something. The division where the title belt is a sparkly pink butterfly. The lady telling AJ that she’s doing anti-feminist things is the same one who got pies thrown in her face by the Planet Of The Apes apes. The one who let John Cena slap her on the ass. The one who made out with Eric Bischoff while he was dressed like her father. The one who faked a drugging, kidnapping and rape to make her dad mad. The one who rolled around in hay and shit with Trish Stratus. The one.
THEN, as if showing up to lord herself over AJ wasn’t enough, she interrupted Kaitlyn trying to challenge AJ to a rematch by telling Kaitlyn to never interrupt her again. And also that none of the other Divas should mess with her. A woman who has NOTHING TO DO WITH THE STORYLINE showed up to run down the champion, run down her challenger and run down any other possible challengers FOR NO REASON.
The worst part of THAT is that WRESTLING IS NOT REAL. If Stephanie was a real person reacting to real situations, sure, she can be justified in doing whatever she wants. But guess what? Kaitlyn didn’t really interrupt Stephanie. She was WRITTEN to interrupt Stephanie. When AJ replies to Stephanie by saying she married a superstar, and Stephanie responds with a comment about how that wasn’t original? YOU GUYS WROTE AJ TO SAY THAT. YOU ARE PURPOSEFULLY NEUTERING THE HEEL AND FACE CHARACTERS ON YOUR SHOW. The woman who is in charge of what happens on the show can’t pretend like she’s getting mad at people for letting things happen on the show. It doesn’t work like that. It’s why Triple H shouldn’t be able to be a C.O.O. in real life AND in character AND a wrestler, because he gets to make all the decisions, faces no consequence and can take credit for everything. Stephanie has now officially ceased to be Triple H’s wife, and is now just Triple H in a wig. God, imagine how much better we’d all be if he’d just kept dating Chyna.
Congratulations on being cheered over everybody else, Stephanie. You don’t have to wrestle next week, or try to sell t-shirts, or keep crowds interested in you to keep your job.
Well. That just says it all then, doesn’t it?
I’m sure AJ was marking out a little inside to have a chance to do an in-ring segment with one of her idols, even though Steph acted like a bit of a twat and not only tried to bury AJ, but also tried to bury Kait before she even said a damn thing.
Triple H has definitely rubbed off on her, that’s for sure. (Psst, that was a joke. Kinda. ;))
But over time, I got less angry about it; it was just Steph putting her foot down as one of the authority figures of the company. Because then, a theory came to my head.
You know, by the way the other divas were standing behind Kaitlyn when she came out, makes me wonder if underneath it all, after the AJ/Kaitlyn feud boils over, is that Steph is gonna send them all at AJ, one by one, to either take her title, make her life hell, or both.
This will do either 2 things: get more heel heat for AJ as she keeps turning back and defeating every challenge in a smug manner.
It could garner enough sympathy for her to keep putting up with McMahon bullshit that it might actually turn her babyface again. I don’t know, I’m just throwing out theories.
BTW, I’m sorry but I have to say this: Kaitlyn is a HORRIBLE actress, and not that good on the mic to boot. Hell, I think Eve acted better than her, and that’s saying something.
Also, I think AJ has potential to be one of the top talkers based on her delivery, like what she did to Kaitlyn before Payback, but she needs more consistency. She sometimes enunciates too long, or either speaks too fast we can hardly catch up. And sometimes, she does both in one segment. If she finds that proper balance, she’ll be one of the best mic workers in the company, IMO.
She can certainly handle her own, as evident with her actually going toe to toe with Steph on the mic.
*Editorial Over, LOL*
PUNK VS. BROCK. PUNK VS. BROCK. SHIT IS GOING DOWN, FOLKS.
By the way… that was a sarcastic post, in case ya didn’t know.
