Last night, battle lines were clearly drawn in the WWE. It may not have looked like it, but we’ve now got three guys on the inside, and three on the outside.
In true wrestling logic form, the bad guys are all railing against a common cause, and have shed their differences in order to attain a larger goal. The heroes, in contrast, don’t like one another, and will come to serious blows over selfish desires. These are the kinds of lessons WWE teaches us, if we care to hear them.
Punk, Cena, and HHH are our white knights, but none of them like one another.
Miz, Truth, and Nash are our villains, newly portrayed as outside invaders.
On the podcast a few weeks ago, I discussed with David Buckler how much more I enjoyed wrestling when presented with a little bit of crisis. Positioning several men to lurk on the outside, ready to cause havoc in a world where they have nothing to lose is a pretty good start.
