Cheap Pop & Cheap Heat of the Week in Wrestling: 3/10/2016 | Smark Out Moment

Cheap Pop & Cheap Heat of the Week in Wrestling: 3/10/2016

Posted by Ross K Foad Thursday, March 10, 2016
Welcome to another edition of Cheap Pop and Cheap Heat from Smark Out Moment! Each week, we break down the world of professional wrestling and examine two of the polar opposite ends of the spectrum: one thing that was by far the worst thing (Cheap Heat) and the best thing (Cheap Pop) to happen over the past 7 days in sports entertainment. So, what went down this week that we loved and hated about the business?

CHEAP POP OF THE WEEK:
THE GUESSING GAME

WWE is often accused of being too predictable. Not always, as they occasionally pull the rug out from under our feet, but often they can prove us all to be fortune tellers.

However, one cannot say the same for this Shane McMahon business. Nobody knows where this is going, and WWE has us by the proverbial grapefruits to watch and find out. Will Shane fight The Undertaker? I believe that he will, but the outcome cannot be predicted as this stage.

Nobody wants to see The Undertaker have a second loss on his WrestleMania scorecard, but then the idea of Shane O' Mac at the helm is an intriguing concept, too.

There was shades of CM Punk (fittingly for Chicago) when Shane was telling Vince all that is wrong with WWE today, and his points were clearly resonating with the WWE Universe.

Because we have had heel boss figures for such a long time, it is almost difficult to imagine a face figure head running the show at this stage, but do we want to see Undertaker's legacy taking a hit to achieve such a shift?

All I can say is it is keeping me watching and wondering. So, regardless of how strange the setup maybe, WWE must be given there dues for continuing to draw my interest.

Bonus Pop: Lana hits an X-Factor! Lana vs. Brie Bella at WrestleMania 32? I would not say no to it.

CHEAP HEAT OF THE WEEK:
GONE WITH THE WIND

Wow. I feel bad writing this, but I had actually forgotten Tyler Breeze was on the roster. It was only after seeing him compete (and lose) on Monday Night Raw that I was reminded he was still in the game. Why, when I have no problem remembering the likes of Zack Ryder are still there, did I have a memory lapse over Tyler Breeze?

Please do not hate on me for this, as I think he is a talented athlete, like many of the NXT breed, and is just so much fun to watch. Nevertheless, is he a talent WWE called up too soon?

In terms of skills, I would say no, unquestionably he is ready. However, in terms of a story or purpose in being there, it is obvious nothing is imminent.

Sure, I now recall he was in the Fatal-5 Way Intercontinental Title match a few weeks back, but aside from this, what has WWE done with him? A pairing with Summer Rae that split up for no reason and a mini-feud with Dolph Ziggler because — presumably — they look similar.

Come on WWE, you have a fantastic talent here; please do not just hang him out to dry.

Extra Heat: "Ziggler knocks down Ziggler."A classic Michael Cole soundbite botch on Raw. Quality.

So there you have it, my two choices for the week. What do YOU think are the Cheap Pop and Cheap Heat this week in professional wrestling? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
