Cheap Pop & Cheap Heat of the Week in Wrestling: 11/6/2016

Posted by Ross K Foad Sunday, November 6, 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:
A GOOD LONG DRINK

Chris Jericho is simply the best thing about Raw for me, and this week was no exception. Alongside Kevin Owens, Jericho effortlessly makes me laugh once again with the most basic of premises.

Take his post Hell in a Cell promo with Mick Foley and Roman Reigns for example. Not only did he get a pop out of simply adding his name to the word "key", he is still no less popular for declaring his hatred of the entire United States and all of its people. Could we be going down the Lance Storm Canadian Championship line? Sadly, I think that his United States title match might have been a one-off, but the idea of Jeri-KO holding both belts is an attractive one. Can you imagine the arrogance? It would be amazing!

The gift of Jericho might have started as a catchphrase, but it really is not a gift that we should not take for granted.

CHEAP HEAT OF THE WEEK:
GOLDBOTCH

Well, after all the initial hype and excitement of the fantasy match up made reality, we got a taste of what Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg may actually look like—botchy.

Making up for his previous lackluster promo, Paul Heyman was back on fine form to taunt and tease the former WCW Champion. Sadly, Goldberg did not really pull off his part in as a successful fashion. He bumbled and stumbled with an invading Rusev before he finally managing to hook him into a Jackhammer. A spear to Paul Heyman followed (which was exciting) but it was not enough to erase the memories of the fumble fest.

Goldberg would later take to Twitter to blame the incident on ring rust, which is understandable given he has been out for 12 years, but this brought a sharp dose of reality to the fact that this dream match may very well turn out to be something of a disappointing nightmare.

Extra Heat: Curt Hawkins.

Built up over 3 months. Destroyed in 6-seconds. Fact.

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!
