WWE RAW - May 2, 2016
Random Thoughts and Opinions
- Oh good, a 20 minute talking segment to open RAW. The New Era starts the same way the old era started.
- Apparently rematch clauses in WWE contracts don't mean a thing.
- Cesaro has freak-like strength.
- Owen’s facials are fantastic. He's the total package.
- Sami Zayn = Daniel Bryan
- I'll take my Goldust stuttering any day. Sweet Jesus this segment and match is bad. Tyler Breeze won a match on RAW! Surprised that was on during the first hour.
- I'm a fan of the Vaudevillains, yeah I said it. Big Cass brought it tonight, kudos! The Vaudevillians vs. Enzo & Cass will be a money feud when Enzo returns. I'm glad it was the Dudleys taking the pin and not the Vaudevillians. Really fun match.
- Interesting decision to give Emma the win. Emma just isn't connecting at this point. The women worked hard, but they didn't have the crowd.
- I just don't get these Primo & Epico vignettes.
- There's something about the Ambrose Asylum set that just makes me laugh. I think it's Mitch. Well, RIP Mitch. I like this feud.
- This Battle Royal just reminds me of how many wrestlers are either misused or underutilized. Why bother building up Apollo Crews and Baron Corbin just to have them go out with such little fanfare? I like Rusev winning here, build him back up.
- The Charlotte/Natalya feud went off the rails. That was pretty bad, yet Paige and Sasha Banks aren't being used.
- Good energy for the main event. Good match, but unless they're planning on turning Reigns, the beat down of Styles is misplaced. Reigns got the pin on Styles at Payback and now we see him destroy A.J. after this match. WWE couldn't even allow for Reigns to be the one who got pinned, instead it was one of the Uso's. Way to make Styles whole again. The way it stands right now I have no desire to see these two again at Extreme Rules because WWE has made it clear Styles is below Reigns.
- I wish WWE would've handled Gallow’s and Anderson's debut better. They should have been built up stronger before going into this feud. It's typical of WWE to rush into feuds and this is just another example of that.
This was just a so so show.
