Apparently Roman Reigns will be doing an open challenge type gimmick with the Intercontinental Title, which should be awesome. Hope it gives guys like Elias a chance to shine.

Well it looks like Matt Hardy is starting to become broken again.  This was the closest we have gotten to his TNA character and right now it is really needed.   Sucks that it could be wasted on a waste of space in Bray Wyatt

Ah, insane vs insane makes sense. And I loved that Elias/ Roman match.

Rollins vs. Cesaro was a pretty terrific TV match and Rollins's best singles outing in quite a long time.  Roman/Elias was a different, also entertaining match and textbook Roman special where he puts over someone lower on the card throughout the match before picking up the win.  I also really liked that both matches had clean finishes and set up upcoming TV programs with Rollins & Ambrose vs Sheamus & Cesaro and Roman vs. Joe.

 

I've got no use for this Kane nonsense, but two matches like the above and some mostly harmless filler (save the godawful Bray stuff) make me a satisfied consumer of televised wrestling.

Give Elias a 3 month IC title run. Elias' stuff is usually corny-good and not corny-bad (see Wyatt, Bray). I couldn't tell if the Bo and Curtis' parts were piped in or not, which makes the segment tops in my book. Just good stuff all around and the Roman match right after was a nice cherry on the sundae.

Has there ever been a wrestler more over-pushed than Kane?

I can't see WWE going full hog with it by having Matt win the Heavyweight title like TNA did.

His storyline brother?

I always got the impression that Taker was a more credible attraction and when guys lost feuds to him, it seemed more like an inevitability than a straight-up heat killer like Kane. I've also always thought Taker was a better wrestler even if he wasn't great.

I don't disagree with any of that. It's just that when I look the modern era, the four biggest stars have been Austin, Hogan, Rock, and Cena while the most pushed guys have been HHH, Undertaker, and Michaels. Each person in the latter group brings some positives, but relative to their value, they have been pushed pretty hard. I realize this is a bigger conversation than this thread, and I wish I had the energy to flesh that out a little more. I just wanted you to understand what I meant. :)

Oh no worries at all and that makes a ton of sense.

I'd love to see that discussion expanded in a thread some time. Although Taker was always heavily pushed and protected, I'm not sure that he was ever pushed above his overness in the way that HHH and HBK arguably were quite a bit. Crowds were always into him I thought.

With Taker the gimmick always had legs, corny as they might have been. From the original Grim Reaper to the evil cult leader of the Attitude Era, the we'll-pretend-this-never-happened Biker era, into the WWE Legend Taker era there's always been some substance there. Kane as a character has never really gone too far past "Taker's presumed dead brother who was burned for a while then wasn't". It was like the took one of Hogan's villians of the month from the 80s and made a 20+ year run with it.

If the fans are determined not to accept Roman Reigns, WWE ought to take advantage and use it to potentially elevate Elias. A Roman/Elias title feud, with Shield vs. Elias/Dallas/Axel matches.

Roman has been treated predominantly as a babyface by crowds the last two weeks, especially in the Miz match.

Agreed. But, last night was a much different story.

I'm not sure what you mean? Last night the Roman cheers and the "Let's Go Roman" chants were way louder than the boos and the "Roman Sucks" chants.

There were also "we want Roman" chants during the Elias promo and "Roman" chants when he was fighting out of the chinlock.
