Readers and Staff Agree. 2011's Feud of the Year is...

By World Wrestling Insanity's Readers & Staff Dec 25, 2011 - 1:12 PM print


Feuds are what wrestling is built on.  Two guys have such animosity for each other that you don't dare risk missing their next encounter wherever or whenever it might be.  If the goal of all promoters is to get your money in their pocket, the first way to do it is to create a conflict and make you care.  This is one of those conflicts and the one that reigned supreme in '11 ...

Reader Comments:

"A Classic Feud. Christian wins the World Title after his best friend retires, only to have it stolen away two days later by Randy Orton. The thing that made this feud great was that you could see that Christian had a legitimate gripe with being screwed over and the fact that he couldn't win the title back. His frustrations boiled over and he returned to his heel roots, winning back the World Championship under dubious circumstances. Here's to ONE MORE MATCH! " - Brian Hart

"It's easy to forget about this feud due to all the big things going on in the WWE this year but it was easily my favorite.  As much as we all want to cheer him, Christian is a natural heel and more fun to boo.  Orton can be crazy whether he's good or bad.  Put crazy vs. evil and throw a World Title in the mix and you have pure magic.

"I am an old man, at least by wrestling fan standards, and as such I like for my wrestling feuds to be centered around a championship. Orton/Christian gave us just that: a feud that was filled with great, intense promos from Orton, justifiable heel work from Christian, and several great matches that took place on free TV and on PPV. Each time these two wrestled they showed the audience something different and their matches evolved as their personal rivalry evolved. It goes to show that sometimes the simplest reasons for a wrestling feud are the best.   " - Brian Helmick

 

 


Staff Comments:

 

"You can criticise how it started (although I thought it was perfectly logical). You can point out that for all their matches, Christian hardly won any of them, and indeed, pinned Orton fewer times. You can feel, such as I did, that they ended up doing a couple too many matches. Indeed, outside of the Rumble and other such Battle Royals, Christian and Orton shared the ring on TV and PPV 12 times in various matches, 7 of which were singles matches. However, the quality, especially in the first few were so awesome that when you look back at Smackdown this year, along with Mark Henry's rise, you'll instantly think of Orton & Christian's feud." - Aaron Wood

-

"Since returning to WWE several years ago, Christian has been waiting in the wings to do something big. This was it. Christian-Orton had everything you could ask for: a solid premise, a beginning, middle and end, and a storyline that was spread out over several months. Unfortunately for both guys, they weren't able to really take the momentum from this rivalry and transfer it to anything else, but the chants of "One More Match" will live on in infamy." - Canadian Bulldog

-
"There was no real hotshot thing about Randy Orton vs. Christian.  No "worked shoots".  Nothing on a pole.  Nada.  Just a World Title and two guys who can't stand each other.  There was something grittier about the feud these two had than anything else WWE offered this year.  Sure, Punk's battles may have been written to appear "real".  But this feud used an organic approach to do the same thing.  Nothing felt false and there was very little to complain about when it was all said and done.
" - James Guttman
