First of all, let me apologize to all of you for taking so darned long to get the art done for chapter three. These last couple of months have been a whirlwind, my schedule has gotten really bogged down, and it doesn’t look to be easing up anytime soon. I just got hired at a new graphic design job (yay me and thank God), and I’m taking a heavier load at the teaching job I already have. The wife’s on vacation, which means that my extra time is devoted to attending to her, so that means I really don’t have the time I had when I first started drawing SEIZURE2. I may have to take a break from the story and post a couple of stories from WEEKEND HEROES, which is a super hero team that will eventually play a crucial role in the Seizure saga. I have a few stories from them I can post while I try to clear my schedule up to draw chapter three and four.
I’ve also been slow in writing chapter five. I came up with some new wrinkles I want to add to the story, but I haven’t figured out how to execute it yet. Be patient with me, I’m figuring it out. Meanwhile, if you like what you’ve been reading so far, drop a line on the comments page, the twitter site or the Facebook site, and by all means tell your friends about this action webcomic!
With that out of the way, let’s talk rasslin;. Most notably last night’s WWE Vengeance.
Air Boom retains in a competitive match. It seems as if WWE is finally getting serious about rebuilding their tag division. That is good, but I wonder if keeping the belts around Kofi Kingston and Evan Bourne’s waists is the way to do that. They need more viable tag teams feuding with each other, and not just over the championship. Visibility is the key to getting this back on track…and one day I will give my official stance on Tag Team wrestling, and what can be done to make it great again.
Dolph Ziggler retains vs, Zack Ryder with interference from Jack Swagger. This was a solid match between two guys who are obviously the future of the WWE. Happy to see Ryder finally showcased, and Ziggler is really showing the heart of a champion. Expect big things from Dolph in the future. I’d actually like for Vicki to recruit two more stars to be in her crew as a modern day version of the four horsemen. I can totally see that if they can get two more guys like Ziggler and Swagger on board.
Beth Phoenix retains against Eve in what people told me was a competitive match. If you’ve read my comments last week, you know my take on the WWE Divas. Maybe they’re having a competitive match with lots of unique wrestling holds just to spite Gail Kim? I wouldn’t put it past the higher-ups at the WWE to try something like that.
Sheamus beats Christian in what has been a pretty predictable feud. I hope Christian hasn’t been demoted to “the guy who gets other people over.” I think he has a lot more to offer than that, and I don’t think he’s at that stage in his career yet (unlike, say, Rey Mysterio). Here’s hoping he wins his next feud. Sheamus, on the other hand, is being set up for another title run, this time as a face. I approve of that.
Awesome Truth beats CM Punk and HHH, and Nash is back to set up a major storyline with Trips and Punk. We all knew this was coming, but it will be interesting to see where this is going. I still believe we’re going to get some kind of stable featuring Nash, Miz, Truth and maybe David Otunga, with Johnny Ace as the leader. I’m all for that. It’s about time WWE had a new killer elite stable to run the WWE. Nexus and Corre were flops.
Speaking of Otunga, I was chatting with Dave during the Pay Per View, and he really seems to be into his new “Rasslin lawyer” persona. good for him. I think he can get some real mileage out of that gimmick. Too bad he wouldn’t take my questions about his wifey…
Orton beats Cody, surprise, surprise. Sometimes I wonder if Randy will ever put anybody not named Mark Henry over. Nonetheless, Cody is still a rising star in the WWE. Expect big things from him in the future…like maybe a Royal Rumble win?
Henry retains in an epic clash of the titans. the exploding rins a la lesnar was a nice touch, as was Henry insisting on leaving under his own power. I really like how they’re portraying Henry. He’s a rage-filled bully, but he still has a kind of warrior’s pride which makes it easy to connect with him.
Alberto Del Rio retains against John Cena in a hardcore classic. Wow…Crotch shots, cameras and catering tables…you’d think this was a classic WWE Hardcore title match! I really wish they’d bring that title back.
In any case, I liked the wanton destruction that went on in this PPV, especially with the championship matches. They really upped the carnage level, and I found that entertaining.
