Needless to say, it's been an interesting week for wrestling. SummerSlam weekend went down, 2K18's roster reveal is underway, and the bracket is known for the Mae Young Classic. All of these things are pretty awesome in their own way, setting things up for the future of the WWE. And yet, here we are talking about setbacks because of... Beach balls. ...WHAT?!
SummerSlam weekend always brings on the biggest party of the summer, and the second biggest behind only Wrestlemania week. This year's above all has even more riding on it. Takeover brought out the best in wrestling, yet again, while SummerSlam brought out the best in sports entertainment. Then, to set the weekend off even more, the Mae Young Classic's bracket was FINALLY revealed. Needless to say, a lot happened in the last weekend.
The bracket being released continues the WWE's run of the improving the women's division, with giving them a 32 woman tournament featuring a ton of indie talent, including Mercedes Martinez, Nicole Savoy, Shayna Baszler and Rachael Evers, among others. Once the tournament finishes, one can only wonder where the women's division will be by the time we get to Wrestlemania in New Orleans.
And then... there's beach balls. Yeah, beach balls. The talk of the wrestling world is a flying piece of plastic. You can say it started when Cesaro ripped one apart at SummerSlam (thank you, by the way) after being sick of disrespectful fans. Problem is, this only set fans off. Monday came and got worse. As did Tuesday. To the point they've now been banned from WWE shows.
I can't believe this is a thing. I take the side that fans are being disrespectful when they do things like this. Yes, they paid for the show and can do a lot of things. But, at the same time, why would you go to a show just to screw around like that? Should the writing be better? Maybe. But, this is a different situation. This is something that can take away from other fans experience, which is the problem. Go, have fun, chant what you want, but don't flat out ruin other people's experience. Come on, guys.
