Last night’s Royal Rumble was…how shall I put it….controversial? Polarizing? However you want to put it, it sure did create a stir on the internet and other media sources. I, personally, thought that the show as a whole was a mild thumbs up, with Daniel Bryan vs. Bray Wyatt giving us match of the night honors. It also stirred a question in my mind that I thought would make good blog conversation fodder.
Would we rather have a very high match quality, or would we rather have booking decisions that make sense? If you had just seen a ***** match where the wrong guy went over, are you more or less forgiving? Conversely, if you had seen a DUD where the right guy went over, are you still disappointed that the match stunk?
I’m a match quality guy, and that’s all I want to see when I watch a show. It doesn’t matter to me who goes over because in the end, I can rewatch an excellent match. But the Blog of Doom is filled with contradictory viewpoints, and I welcome yours here.
