Cheap Pop & Cheap Heat of the Week in Wrestling #336

Posted by Ross K. Foad Saturday, November 28, 2020

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:

FAUX PARP

Ok, this is a dumb one, but it made me laugh more than anything else on wrestling this week.

Whilst being interviewed on Raw, Adam Pearce somehow said Drew McInfart instead of Drew McIntyre.

Quite how one gets from Tyre to Fart is beyond me, but it was so unexpectedly stupid, I could not help but laugh.

Unsurprisingly, this was met with much glee by wrestling fans, and it soon started trending on Twitter.

If we still had crowds with signs, I have a feeling that this one would linger for a good while. Some have speculated that this was a purposeful botch to get people talking, which seems mad at first, but given what is known about Vince McMahon, it is not impossible to rule out. Staged or botched, it made me laugh either way, and do we not all need a bit more of that just now?

CHEAP HEAT OF THE WEEK:

MYSTERIOUS HAPPENINGS

The Mysterio Family and Murphy are meant to be babyface, right?

Well, you could have fooled me going off this week's SmackDown, for when Murphy went up against King Corbin, the amount of interference and cheating by the family was insane.

Every way Corbin turned he was goaded, distracted, or hindered by the Mysterios in some way. Heck, they might as well have added Angie Mysterio and billed it as a Mysterio in every corner match, but I am not sure that they could have fit in any more cheating if they tried!

The Aalliya Mysterio distraction when Corbin went outside the ring was fine, as that fed into the idea of her wanting the best for her boyfriend, and trying to help him out, but everything else felt overboard.

Corbin had not done enough to justify this treatment, and, in them doing so, I actually felt sympathy for him. Furthermore, it made Murphy look weak that he needed this much help.

Was the idea to turn the family heel? If so, then we can call that a job well done, but, I have my doubts that WWE would want to do that to Rey.

By all means have them aid Murphy, but do not make it look like he cannot get the job done himself.

An Unfair Advantage?

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!
