Ryback or Miz?


El Dingo Capitano

Recommended Posts

So following Raw it looks like Ryback and Miz could well be entering into a fued. The first real story arc for Ryback.

 

Who should be coming out on top? Ryback has been desperate for a real story line for ages now but also the Miz since coming back appears more likely to be one of the next big stars....so who should come out on top?

Well Ryback doesn't talk and working a 15 minute match might fuck up whatever aura he has left. Fuck knows what they are going to do with Miz and Ryback. Miz can have good matches with good workers, but he's not exactly someone who can drag something out of nothing.

 

Looking back it was a big mistake doing the squash matches. They should have kept him in FCW until he could work a match on TV and then had him make an impact on arrival. Ryback was over when he first turned up. Now months of doing the same thing has ruined whatever momentum he had. Imagine if a bloke as big and as scary looking as him turned up and he was polished and he had Heyman or someone alongside him, and he destroyed the Undertaker or sent the Rock packing? They could have had a star on their hands.

Did you miss the part where I said "They should have kept him in FCW until he could work a match on TV"?

We'd never see him then. The guy's right. There have been a million big men come through in the last 10-12 years. How many good ones besides Brock and Batista? How many half decent ones?

Yeah, I think Miz has built up enough goodwill with the fans to turn face. He debuted as a face, but he was still a naturally cocky bastard from his reality TV days, so it was short-lived. He's matured and has the work ethic down. He's had a few instances of being cast as the underdog over the past couple of years, and I think he's earnt respect through that (and his improvement in the ring). I wouldn't make him a happy smiley face though, it'd be too disingenuous. He'd keep his edge, sorta like Orton but with more personality.

As opposed to seeing him every week doing nothing and getting "Goldberg" chanted at him? If they worked him on the road and in FCW, when he debuted on TV he'd be more polished and would have more chance of getting over, because nobody would see him as a Goldberg rip off and he wouldnt be cast as "the bald bloke who does the squash matches". We shouldnt see him if he's not ready for TV. Like the million big men who they put on TV because they are big and feel that can carry them through until they learn how to work. Fact is, he's not over, he can't work, they've overexposed him without having him work long matches amazingly and he can't talk but they are pushing him anyway. They've completely introduced him in the wrong manner.

He's on the road now and working TV. If he can't work a 15 minute match now, working in front of nobody with other guys who can't work wouldn't have done him much good. Working his squashes is fine but he should have been in the ring every night on house shows with an experienced old hand.
