Cheap Pop & Cheap Heat of the Week in Wrestling: 4/21/2016

Posted by Ross K Foad Thursday, April 21, 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:
DOIN' WELL

Bada Bing Bada Boom! This past week's Raw saw Enzo Amore and Big Cass advance to the finals of the tag team tournament after defeating The Dudley Boyz.

This time last year, if you had asked me who deserved to dethrone The New Day, I would have struggled to give an answer. Yes, The Dudley Boyz and The Lucha Dragons deserve the titles at some point, but at the expense of The New Day? No.

However, Enzo and Cass? Well, for the first time in over a year we have a team that I can see the crowd accepting as new Tag Team Champions. They remind me of a modern-day New Age Outlaws with explosive ring action, excellent chemistry, knowing how to work the microphone, and attracting outstanding crowd participation.

Plus, how many men can compare themselves to boobs and still come out all the more over for it? That—ironically—takes balls.

But enough about me and what I enjoyed this week. How you doin'?

CHEAP HEAT OF THE WEEK:
BROKEN OUT IN PAIN

Balance. It is a funny thing, isn’t it? On the same day thousands of humans die, so, too, are thousands born. If the recent events are anything to go by, a similar force seems to exist within the WWE universe as well.

Having returned from injury earlier this month, Cesaro left behind a blank space on the injury list just waiting to be filled. Sadly, Bray Wyatt was the one to oblige.

WWE reported this week that Bray Wyatt has suffered an injury during a non-televised event and it is not yet known how long he may be out for.

This is all the more tragic given that not only did he recently had a back injury, but also as he was looking set for a potential face turn against Roman Reigns.

Bray Wyatt is one of the most intriguing characters of recent times. The crowd loves him despite his platitudes of death, destruction, and disparity to anyone outside his fold. The WWE Universe went nuts after his stare down with Roman Reigns, likely taking it as a sign that he may actually become the one to bring down The Roman Empire.

I just hope that WWE has the sense to keep this story on the backburner, and equally, that they do not rashly break up the two uninjured Wyatt's in his absence. Part of Bray's appeal is his command of the family, and Lord knows WWE didn't know how to use Luke Harper and Erick Rowan apart.

Get well soon Bray.
