WWE might be stretching for ideas now. Wrestling can have some interesting plot twists and a lot of them involve wrestlers hating each other for one reason or another. This can set up a lot of different kinds of matches, some of which you don’t see all too often. However, that doesn’t mean they’re all good ideas, which has been an issue several times before and may be again.

Over the last few weeks, one of the biggest feuds in WWE has been King Corbin vs. Roman Reigns. These two have fought on and off over the years but this one has proven to be one of their strongest feuds yet. It helps that Corbin has found some new life with the King character, but there was a single segment that pushed it to a higher level. Now that segment is the basis for match with a big stipulation.

According to the respective arenas’ websites, Reigns will face Corbin in a loser eats dog food match at the SAP Center in San Jose, California on February 7 and at the Rogers Center in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on February 14. Both of these will be episodes of SmackDown which will air live on FOX, though there is a chance that the matches will take place after the shows are off the air. The matches are a result of Corbin handcuffing Reigns to the post and covering him with dog food on the December 6 SmackDown.

It was a messy one. Check out what started the whole thing:

Opinion: This feels like something straight out of Memphis wrestling and there is nothing wrong with that. It’s the kind of story that fans can get behind in a hurry because the loser is going to be humiliated. Let Corbin do something to get under Reigns’ skin, while also insulting the fans, and then let Reigns fight for them. That’s some simple wrestling booking and it will work just fine.
