So now on this short blog,we take a look back at the most shocking moments on WWE in 2014.
Firing of Great Young Talents in the same day
So on June 12,2014 WWE decided to release 10 superstars all in the same day! A lot of the people they released were great wasted talents too like Drew McIntyre,Evan Bourne,Jinder Mahal,and Brodus Clay.
A part of why they released these superstars is because of the Network's failing and there views kind of getting low through recent years.
All of the released superstars are doing well for themselves in various other promotions.
Three Legends in One Ring
But we never expected "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and The Rock come in the same ring as well!
These 3 respected legends are WWE's biggest superstars through the years and will stay in as the best in the business,no doubt!
It was a great sight to see all 3 of them in the same ring! A great way to start off a show.
Batista wins the Royal Rumble
I admit,I used to be a big fan of Batista when he was just starting out in WWE but when he returned in 2014 his charisma was just gone to me.
A lot of people thought that Daniel Bryan would win the 2014 Royal Rumble,but no one expected Batista to have it all and main event; WrestleMania.
When No. 30 came out,it was Rey Mysterio that's when everything went out of hand. The arena was nothing but full of boo's and when Batista won the rumble,the whole IWC exploded with anger!
Batista's prime has already passed and I think that he should retire now for good.
Brock Lesnar destroyed John Cena
Cena didn't had a chance to even hurt Lesnar,it was a total domination shown by The Beast Incarnate! 16 straight German Suplexes and a win for the World title was just satisfying to see.
Although he only appeared a few times this year,Lesnar is definitely one of the biggest stars in 2014.
Daniel Bryan's bad luck
First he was injured just after a few months winning the WWE World Heavyweight title,then his Be a Star sponsor; Connor "The Crusher" Michalek passed away,and his dad passed away too.
It was a pretty bad year for Bryan and hopefully 2015 would be better for him,also now that it is guaranteed that he'll be entering the 2015 Royal Rumble! Could he win it? We will find out.
Seth Rollins betrays The Shield
Everybody thought that it was Dean Ambrose who will betray The Shield and become a top heel,but it was Seth Rollins who did it and joined The Authority afterwards.
To me,Seth Rollins was the breakout star of the 3 Shield members. His feud with Dean was great and he's just an all-around great performer who can give it all he got!
Ultimate Warrior's death
At first I thought it was some kind of a sick joke but I found out later on that it was legitimate news. We've had a lot of great legends who passed away this year like; Mae Young,Ox Baker,Jimmy Del Ray,and Mabel but not as shocking as Ultimate Warrior's passing.
Only 2 days before his death he was just inducted in the Hall of Fame and buried the hatchet with Vince,then 1 day before his death he was just on RAW addressing a quite creepy promo.
It seemed like he saw the lights coming and did a farewell to the fans before he leaves. Warrior will truly be remembered forever!
CM Punk leaves WWE
Everybody thought that he was just taking a break or that he will return shortly but once again the whole internet exploded when Punk revealed everything on Colt Cabana's podcast.
As I said in my past blog,WWE had a huge loss when CM Punk left and I think with all of these shocking revelations (whether they are true or not) WWE should improve themselves on handling there great talents.
Will both sides will ever be fine? Only time will definitely tell.
Sting's debut at Survivor Series
At Survivor Series,we all thought that Dolph Ziggler and the rest of Team Cena will lose at the hands of Seth Rollins and Triple H,but then came Sting!
It was a huge pop (but I think Sting deserved a much louder cheer) and after many years of speculation on when he will debut in the WWE,it finally happened.
It seems like WWE's plans for him right now is to have a feud with Triple H and I wouldn't mind seeing these two great legends face each other. I'm sure they both still got it.
The Undertaker's streak ends
Everybody thought he would retire undefeated but Brock Lesnar once again shocked the whole world by conquering Undertaker's streak!
Of course this is all Taker's decision and I still respect him but I think he should just retire without the streak being moved at all.
In my opinion,this was the most shocking moment in 2014!
