WWE World Champion? Sounds like WWE is making a conscience effort to keep the word, heavyweight out of the title.
Sweet Jesus, Teddy Long butchered his lines. Did WWE purposely want to make Long look bad, or did Teddy accomplish that all on his own?
That opening segment was just...bad. The “silly” character WWE has Dean Ambrose playing brought that whole beginning segment down. The whole thing came across as light hearted, fun banter. Having the the wrestlers on ladders made it worse, and the Teddy Long part…
Good match between Cesaro and Jericho, with a few clunky spots. That's a really big win for Cesaro. It would've meant more had Jericho sold frustration for losing. I like the announce team driving home the strength of Cesaro.
The video package showing the beginning stages of the Shield only reminds me of how much better Dean Ambrose was back then.
Is it just me or is this a babyface video package on Seth Rollins?
Jack Swagger is fired up!
I was enjoying the match while it lasted. I like Swagger getting in the mix. In fact, I'd prefer Swagger vs. Rusev for the U.S. Championship instead of Titus O’Neil. Perhaps we’ll that feud after Money in the Bank.
A.J. Styles seems to have a renewed swagger about him.
When Cena's on, he's on, and tonight is no exception. That was good stuff. Styles is so much more confident. The only complaint I have is Cena calling Styles a bust.
No televised entrance for the Vaudevillians, that can't be good.
The Enzo injury angle did nothing for me. Why is WWE allowing Cass to plow through the tag team division? He's single handedly destroyed the Dudleys and now the Vaudevillians. WWE had a ready-made long term program handed to them with Enzo and Cass against the Vaudevillians.
The Sami Zayn vs. Alberto Del Rio match didn't click with me. They seemed a bit off tonight, but I'm sure they'll turn it up for Money in the Bank.
Another good video package from WWE, this time featuring Roman Reigns. This was one of Reigns’ better promos.
Good match between Kevin Owens and Dean Ambrose. So it was Cesaro over Jericho, Del Rio over Zayn and Ambrose over Owens. Does that mean next week we see Jericho, Zayn and Owens get wins?
I'm so confused by Charlotte’s promo on Ric Flair. Did WWE change their minds on the direction they're going with him?
I really wish WWE would create more feuds in the Women's Division.
That was sloppy segment. Dana Brooke has a long way to go.
JBL really blew it by mentioning Tyler Breeze shaving Fandango’s back before it actually aired. Cole did his best to cover up the mistake, but the damage was done.
The match between Breeze and R Truth was filler at its worst. I just don't understand why WWE would bring Teddy Long back for this. Did they think it would get laughs? I'm so tired of Stephanie McMahon dressing down talent. It's sad.
Why isn't Muhammad Ali in the WWE Hall of Fame?
Wait, the Ambrose Asylum is back?
I didn't care for New Day’s happy go lucky start, but they got more serious once Xavier Woods took the Styles Clash. Good main event with a predictable finish. You just knew WWE was going to have Cena stand tall after last week's beatdown.
This was an average show at best. Teddy Long and the tired Stephanie McMahaon character was some of the worst WWE television I've seen in along time. RAW had a nice little run going of good shows, but last week's and tonight's shows ended that streak. Hopefully WWE gets it together before Money in the Bank.
