Cheap Pop & Cheap Heat of the Week in Wrestling #206

Posted by Ross K. Foad Thursday, April 26, 2018
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:
MIZFITS

Although I saw The Miz being moved to SmackDown Live as a good thing, I did fear that it meant back to catering for poor Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel.

However, if this past week on Monday Night Raw is anything to go by, there might just be a new lease of life for the third generation superstars. Their skits seeking new leadership under Seth Rollins and Finn Balor were fun-little moments, and I would love to see them continue trying to badger some more wrestlers past and present into taking them under their wings.

Of course, there is a finite amount of time that such an angle could be played, but an interesting exchange on Twitter has prompted speculation as to the end game here. For none other than Bray Wyatt, the real life brother of Bo, sent out a tweet to his younger sibling about forgetting the likes of Seth and Finn, and to come and join him and Woken Matt Hardy.

A trolling of the WWE universe? Purposefully done to hint of what is to come? Or a mere joke said in jest between the siblings? Is it possible that this has been a rare case of fore sight where WWE has largely kept them apart till the time was right ala Goldust and Cody Rhodes?

Curtis and Bo have a proven track records for successfully switching up their characters, and I am intrigued to see where their eagerness to be disciples shall take them.

CHEAP HEAT OF THE WEEK:
NO WAY ROSE

No Way Jose has been on the main roster for just over two weeks now, and I am not convinced that there is a whole lot of depth to him in his current guise. History has proven that just because a character works in NXT it does not necessarily mean that they will translate well to main roster viewers.

Admittedly, I had not seen a huge amount of his work in NXT, but the party train gimmick is almost identical to Adam Rose, and remember quickly how that lost steam? I simply do not see this keeping the interest of the main roster viewership for long.

They have already have him beaten up by Baron Corbin, and given how Baron is clearly someone WWE sees as a future star, I doubt that Jose is going to be giving him a receipt on that one any time soon.
