The Little Things

I've been thinking recently, and there are a lot of small details or omissions in storylines or what have you that bother me. Some of them may be oversights, others are blatant lies. Like Jerry Lawler's "first" WWE title match against Miz a few weeks ago. WWE either purposely lied to us to advance their storyline which would be straight up Big Brother shit, or it was an honest mistake which I can't see being the case. Either way, it didn't look good once it came out that Lawler actually faced HBK for the title back in the 90's.

Another one that I picked up from Smackdown the other night was Edge saying he got to see his "good friend" Christian at the Slammy Awards. Weren't they supposed to be brothers? This one is more likely a mistake, but Edge of all people should know that him and Christian were kayfabe brothers back in the day.

Other things just don't seem to make sense, like why, up until last week's Smackdown, was Alex Riley still carrying around Miz's Money in the Bank briefcase? It was cashed in, and the ref took it from Miz. Why did he still have it? Granted, this was remedied somewhat 2 weeks ago and now Riley is carrying around a plain briefcase. I still don't know what the case is for, but maybe it's part of an upcoming storyline. Either way I hope it gets explained soon.

Lastly, I'd like to ask why nobody goes for help during a backstage assault. Sometimes they do get broken up, but most of the time, when someone is being dragged up and down the hallway, everyone is just walking around minding their own business. It doesn't make sense that nobody would care about what's going on.

It just seems odd that WWE would go through seemingly so much trouble to make these in depth storylines and what have you, then overlook little things like this.

Do they think we as fans won't notice? Do they think it's not important? I don't know the answer, but I still find it annoying.
