WWE RAW Reaction -
Road to Money in the Bank
Check out my great, good, bad, and pathetic from last night's RAW.
- With the Money in the Bank PPV coming up, the company set up several qualifying matches for the ladder match. I thought overall they did a great job setting up pretty good matches and the winners were all people I approve of. So of course that was great!!!!
- Seth Rollins returned and it was made official that he will face Roman Reigns at Money in the Ban for the WWE title.
- Selfishly, I wanted I did not want AJ Styles and Kevin Owens to face each other in a qualifier. I wanted both in the ladder match! But I get it, AJ has other plans, so in that regard, I'm so glad KO won here. He is my pick to win the whole thing and these two are my favorite two guys in the company. I really enjoyed the wrestling match they had here and it was some really great spots mixed in there.
- Sammi Zayn got a great win over Sheamus and I really enjoyed that. Zayn has what it takes for the long haul in this company. I also think they did a really good job trying to give Sheamus something good to do. as well.
- Enzo Amore made his return to a huge pop. They did the usual routine with the fans singing along. Enzo was fantastic on the stick, and it was really great to see him back and healthy. Great stuff. My man was so excited he dropped the mic off the stage when he ran out!!
- Stephanie McMahon was in one segment and cut nobodies Balls off!!!! Great!!! She just shunned Seth, but it wasn't bad at all.
- I know many didn't like it, but I really liked Charlotte breaking up with her father. The execution could have been better, but Ric showed great emotion and Charlotte is pretty good on the mic too me. I also like the addition of Dana to be Charlotte's lackey.
- Cesaro defeated the Miz in a pretty good TV match. Cesaro is just great and makes anybody he works with better. Maryse has totally revitalized Miz's career. He's working better than he has in years too, but it helps that he's working with guys like Cesaro, Zayn, and Owens.
- Once again, they gave the New Day some baaad material and they made it work. I really want these guys to be left to their own devices.
- I really have nothing against Chris Jericho. I really don't. But this guy consistently brings down his opponents to a lower level. He did nothing to help elevate Apollo Cruz, and then he just beat him. Smh. Not good. Undefeated streak, over. For Jericho. Smh. Wasted.
So after weeks of me praising the well built story-line they have been developing with AJ Styles and Gallows/Anderson, they just dropped the ball completely on Monday night. First, after losing a hard fought match to Reigns at the PPV, they make Styles come out in the last segment and endorse Reigns, which NOBODY wanted him to do. It was pathetic. Then he blames his boys for his lost, when we saw the match and they did nothing to cost him anything. And then all of sudden, they just stopped being friends!!!! What???? Then I thought, Oh maybe they will cost him the match with Owens, but no, AJ just loses CLEAN AGAIN!!!!!! I hated it. Pathetic.
