WWE RAW Reaction - Injury Bug Strikes Again
Check out my great, good, and bad from last night's RAW.
- Finally, Bayley debuted on the main roster and it was great to see her. I really thought she should have been on Smackdown, but given the injury to Sasha Banks and suspension of Paige, I understand why they needed a top babyface on RAW ASAP. Bayley is just a lovable character who is super over.
- It was sad to see Finn Balor be forced to forfeit the Universal title due to injury. It feels like we see this far too often. But the fact that Seth Rollins came out and played up, especially given he was in the exact same boat, made this great and set up a program for the future.
- While its essentially the same booking they used to decide the first Universal champion a few weeks ago on RAW, I liked the way they set up the four way for next week, with multiple matches.
- Seth vs Zayn and Owens vs Neville were two very good matches. I really thought Sammi Zayn was seriously injured, but he really might have just did a hell of sell job. Probably the best since my man from Bulgaria.
- Speaking of, Rusev is the greatest man on earth, hands down. He deserves an Oscar, Emmy, and Slammy. Fantastic.
- Jericho and Owens have been great together and the union has really made them even better. I still want to see Owens in the Main event alone. But Jericho made Reigns look very good in the main event.
- The Dudley Boyz came out for their retirement announcement, which didn't end with Bubba turning on D-Von, which was a nice change. But ended with the Club destroying them and getting a rub by destroying a legendary team on the way out. The speech the Dudley's gave was pretty good and a nice touch in New York. Since their contracts have not been renewed, this pretty much establishes we won't see them again until they are inducted into the Hall of Fame. Great team, no doubt.
- What the hell was Titus O'Neal doing? This was simply pathetic. His mic work is supposed to be his strong suit, cause damns sure ain't his wrestling. What a terrible display. I would make it pathetic, but I still get a kick out of Crazy Bob Backlund , so I couldn't completely bury it. But please end this feud NOW!!!!!
