WrestleMania 29 tickets are on sale which I know based on the 3 different emails I’ve received from the WWE today. And even though I won’t be going to the show, opting instead for a return trip with the Beeramid, what these emails did do is get me in a wrestling mind frame… time for a prediction.
One of the major story lines in WWE these days is the John Cena / AJ Lee “romance”. If you’re not up to date, AJ Lee was fired from role as RAW General Manager due to an “inappropriate relationship”. They’re making it look like it’s John Cena and quite frankly the storyline is about the worst we’ve seen in years from the WWE. It’s clearly a rip off of a recent terrible story line from TNA where THEIR AJ (Styles) was hooking up with Claire Lynch. Trust me… it’s terrible. TNA has gone so far as to call out WWE on the air. This has brought cheers from the IWC (Internet wrestling community) and rightfully so. After all… WWE is clearly copying a story line off their rival. Or are they?
Whether you like Vince McMahon or not, you have to agree that he’s a great business man and more times than not he’s got his finger on the pulse of the wrestling business. I find it hard to believe that he’s allow his writers to blatantly copy an inferior (in his eyes) product in TNA. What I DO think is incredibly possible is for Vince to give a big ol, “Fuck You” to TNA by simultaneously swerving the fans and stealing a former TNA talent… Ric Flair.
Flair has been off TNA television for some time. It’s long been rumored that The Nature Boy would be making a return to the WWE in some capacity. And THIS is the perfect opportunity. Because while I don’t think there’s a chance in hell that all this footage of John Cena and AJ Lee is legit, it’s clear that AJ is with SOMEONE. I’m calling it right now… that someone is Ric Flair. WOOOOOOO!
What do you think? Off my rocker? Even though Flair has been gone for quite some time now, the last time he was on TV was for TNA. It puts a decent end to the AJ / Cena story, reintroduces Flair to WWE, says “Fuck You” to TNA, and puts everything right with the universe.
Or maybe this is just WWE rehashing a terrible story line…
