Reviewing Raw, SD Live & predictions for this Sunday’s Money in The Bank. I also give a very passionate argument why WWE missed a HUGE opportunity with Bayley this past Monday, what is Roman’s SummerSlam announcement is going to be and Shinsuke’s probability of winning the MITB briefcase.
Post-Brand Extension, Smackdown has proven (so far) to be a more engaging wrestling show than that of its brother, Raw. This week I give my take on both shows as we are only ONE week away from SummerSlam in Brooklyn.
In what was a very solid Raw from a wrestling standpoint, WWE seems to be protecting one half of their main event of WrestleMania, Roman Reigns. Their pre-selected “chosen one” is being kept off TV and barely being mentioned on-air. Its going to be a rough day at the office if WWE continues down the stubborn road of Reigns as a fan favorite.
Really also loving the Y2J heel turn, and discuss why although this is their 4th match in the series, that this will be AJ & Y2J’s best at WrestleMania, even though it has yet to be officially announced following the best tag team match I’ve seen in recent memory against New Day.
I also discuss the massive implications of the Shane/Taker match at WrestleMania and how there may be more than meets the eye.
Cena is also officially out for WrestleMania 32 in terms of competing in a match, but that does leave the door open for some kind of appearance…and a major one at that.
Monday Night Raw (aired 2/9/15) failed to provide a clear picture of where WWE is heading for WrestleMania. Is Reigns now a heel? Has this year lost the magical feel for Daniel Bryan? Where is Randy Orton?
This week I review Monday Night Raw from 1/5/15 and go over potential Royal Rumble Scenarios. There hasn’t been a PPV in recent memory with so many possibilities, which any wrestling fan should appreciate. I also address why Roman Reigns has yet to connect with the Audience and why the Ambrose vs Wyatt feud didn’t help either man.
This week I give my thoughts on WWE Raw which was a complete 180 from last weeks stinker. I also explain why I feel Seth Rollins is WWE’s 2014 MVP & how he is arguably the top heel in WWE as we head into 2015.
