I think this Jesse Ventura episode made me realize why it is better to just wish for comebacks to relive the glory days instead of actually seeing the glory days try to be relived.

Kofi shouldn't be anywhere near a title match yet. He's a longterm prospect. Win or lose at TLC, Sheamus is not. Having Kofi either a)win the title in a meaningless tables match or b)lose to Cena in his first PPV main event would undercut him completely. People have no patience these days.

One of the fun features in the CRZ's World subforum is the "This Day in Wrestling Recappery" feature. Pulling all the old material from slashwrestling for that day.

One of the features on there was Robert Ortega's Raw Lines (slashwrestling.com) feature, a very in-depth analysis of the week's show.

What match got worst match of the night for Raw 7 years ago this week? Batista v. Kane.

What feud do we get set up for a main event on Smackdown Friday night? Batista v. Kane.

Of course at least seven years ago the main event was Rob Van Dam v. Shawn Michaels.

Everything old is new again?

It's about dang time they gave a shot to a person who already isn't a main eventer.

In the good ol' days of the WWE, unknowns or people who weren't already up the ladder of success got occassional title shots. Is Sheamus going to win the title? No but at least the concept of the battle royal for its purpose is something that should be looked at more often.

An example of a person on the lower end of the ladder was the 1-2-3 Kid facing Bret Hart for the WWE Championship (and from what I remember, it wasn't a bad match). Was the 1-2-3 Kid going to win the title? Of course not; but when you put people who are not in the main event scene but give them a shot here and there, it adds a little more credibility to that person and makes their spot on the WWE map just a little bit bigger. This is just one reason why the mid-card is less relevant and that is because you expect the same result in the mid card or main event title scene. When mixing it up a little bit, it adds some intrigue to the match and to the mid-card person's credibility.

The KO division is getting dangerously close to WWE's women's division. It used to be the highlight of the show now its just three random women vying for the title and that is it.
