I get what they are trying to do, but Miz is running circles around poor Jason Jordan. I'm digging Bo Dallas's Arn glasses though,

Yeah this Jordan thing seems DOA. He's just not a charismatic speaker. Miz was there to carry him but ended up outclassing him pretty badly

Looks like we are getting Rollins & Ambrose v Sheamus & Cesaro. Always liked it when two main eventers/upper mid carders would go after the tag belts. Sorta like Sting & Hawk and .Sting & Bulldog against the .Nasty .Boys in 93 .WCW.

Or horsemen feuding with Doom in 1990

Bret and Owen v Quebecers etc.

And yeah the crowds just aren't buying Jordan. I guess you turn him heel but that would predicate turning Angle I guess which I don't know if they want to just yet

This Ambrose/Rollins thing has been pretty well built and the transition from the Miz and co to Sheamus/Cesaro has been well handled. Not everything is working but the booking on Raw is pretty well organised right now.

Yes not everything is working but they clearly have a plan where things are headed.

Rollins and Ambrose winnng the titles at SS and then helping Roman win the main event is a pipe dream but damn does a reunion sound fun

Well that's a pretty obvious sign that we're getting Demon Fin at SS.

Demon Balor vs Bray Wyatt sounds like the 7th circle of wrestling hell to me

Maybe they'll have weird CGI dragons fighting CGI worms projected onto the mat? Fans loved it at Mania, if I remember correctly...

Discuss:

Is Bray Wyatt a more played out act than Dolph Ziggler?

At least Dolph usually had good matches so at least they'd be fun to watch even if you didn't care how they got there.

I feel like a retooled or babyface Bray could still have some value to the company though, while I think Ziggler is now of zero merit whatsoever

Shoutout to Mark Madden finally making it on Raw in the crowd behind Braun.

Oh hell yeah, I loved that too.

 

I assume this is leading to Ambrose turning on Rollins, but I'd much rather see them fight Sheamus and Cesaro.  That's a Tag Title match I could get behind, and an actual good use of Ambrose and Rollins, too.

I know you're all going to throw vegetables at me for saying this, but I liked the Wyatt Family, dammit.  I don't like Bray on his own.  He needs new followers, they should call all of Sanity up from NXT and make them his new Family.  That's a reboot I could get behind.  For a while there, it actually seemed like they were turning him face, but then they dropped it.

 

Part of Wyatt's staleness is absolutely due to his being competent but unremarkable in the ring, but an even bigger part of it is the bizarre way they've booked him, pretty much from the git go.

Bray as the cult leader with no cult pretty much undermines everything he does, even if his promos make no sense.

So Neville is going to end up facing either Tozawa again, or the other Davari brother at Summerslam?
 
Ugh.  The Cruiserweight division really needs some new blood, or they need to give Gallaher another shot at the title, stat.
 
Johnny Sorrow suggested this...
 

Oh, and here's what needs to happen with Enzo. He needs to go to 205 Live, have a DDP-like journey to face Neville, and eventually be Rocky and it's a redemption story. It'll save the fucking show. Neville has been awesome but no one has really been a perfect foe for him. Enzo is it. And put Gable in there as well. He's awesome and has personality to spare.


This needs to happen, ASAP.

Not sure if Ambrose and Rollins are going to team up or make out the way this is going.
