So, they've basically killed Ryback dead now then. How they managed to fuck a wrestler up this badly I can't understand. The guy could have been their next big star...I am amazed at this idiocy. Who books a monster to be a crybaby pussy?

Good point. But fucking hell, how can anyone in charge think that Ryback giving up after being kicked in the leg by The Miz is a good idea? I'm pretty sure I wouldn't submit from being kicked in the leg by The Miz.

He's so far gone, they might as well go all the way with it. There's no getting him back to how he was. Might as well make him wear a dress or black him up. Or give him the Christian gimmick where he throws a tantrum after his loses.

 

As far as Raw goes, that episode was as bad as the one the other week was good. I didn't enjoy any of it unfortunately.

It really was awful. Why was Dolph Ziggler selling for Jinder Mahal? Why are we supposed to take The Uso's as a serious threat to the Shield when they have only won 2-3 televised matches in the past year? Why the fuck is Stephanie McMahon's ugly face on my TV screen? Why fill up one MITB match with top babyfaces and the other with nothing but mid-card heel jobbers? Why are the babyfaces acting like heels and the heels acting like complete losers?

 

No one has any momentum whatsoever. And they are debuting a new heel stable when they have a mid card completely devoid of any babyfaces the fans are behind. Fucking retarded.

Don't know what the worst part of Raw was for me. The absolute final death of Ryback or HHH jerking himself off by including himself in the video packages for WWE champion alongside the likes of Sammartino and Hogan. Both terrible chunks of what was a poor show all-round.

The Wyatt's got hyped huge for next week. I've got no idea who they're gonna put them against, there's nobody about. I guess they can let Bray flatten Zach Ryder until someone proper is available after MITB.

Given that WWE seem to be quite high on the Wyatt family (ending the show with one of their promos rather than John Cena), I would hope that they would give them someone better than Ryder to interact with. Give them someone like Orton or Miz or Sheamus, who are going nowhere fast at the moment but are still viewed (in Orton and Sheamus' case) as high enough up the card to be worthwhile.

 

I would say give them Bryan to intereact with, but if he is going to win MITB it wouldn't really work out too well.

 

No one has any momentum whatsoever.

It has been like this for months. No one has had any momentum for months and the mid-card has been stale and worthless for the same amount of time.

We've all seen bad shows before, we've all seen the WWE fuck up pushes and kill wrestler's momentum but I'm not sure I've seen anything like what they've done to Ryback.

 

It's utterly bizarre, it must be a wind up.

 

Has anyone ever been booked as badly as this? Maybe they thought if they booked him to be a total fanny who loses every week it'd at least stop the Goldberg chants.

Pretty underwhelming Raw really especially when they had a strong war a couple of weeks ago. As well as the other criticism of the show, a random thing that annoyed me was when JBL was mentioning Wimbledon and he was mocked by Cole and King. So they have a a go at him when he gives outdated references (quite rightly) but when he does mentions up to date issues they have a go at him. I know I am probably the only one it annoyed but it still bugged me.

I'm a fan of blacking up Ryback, Ryblack's a gimmick with legs on it. What are they going to do with The Family that isn't a rehash of what The Shield have been doing for the best part of a year? They should have booked it further down the line when The Shield are ready to turn/disband. Bryan as a heel is going to suck all his momentum up, if it hasn't already. As has been said, a poor Raw, especially by recent standards. I did enjoy Ziggler bouncing all over the place taking out 3MB though and the spark he showed when diving up on to the announce table shows he's got some nice baby face fire he just needs to alter the routine a bit.

Crap Raw. I skipped most of the main event because fuck watching another Cena vs Del Rio, but liked Henry making Cena flinch. The commentators didn't sell it as well as they could have, but it's a really good touch. Henry could've done with murdering someone earlier in the show instead of doing a bland speech to really emphasise why Cena's a bit scared, but battering Yoshi Tatsu or Zack Ryder or someone is meaningless anyway. Cena and Ziggler teaming up next week?

 

The start bit with the Money in the Bank entrants was pants compared to what it should've been with the people involved. Kane, Orton and Bryan's storyline is perfect for this match, but for Punk it's just killing time until he starts building up to the Lesnar match. I expect Sheamus will wrestle Fandango five times between now and Money in the Bank.

 

I get increasingly wound up by AJ's over-the-top retard act. And even more wound up by Kaitlyn doing this pose every time she speaks, and every time someone else speaks to her:

The other divas thing was even worse. The Bellas seem to have based their acting techniques on bad porn. Naomi and the new girls were crap. Cameron and Natalya were alright, I suppose, but they had no chance in there with that lot. I don't know how they're going to try and pass off anything the twins do as reality TV.

 

I hope The Shield aren't just trading six-man wins with Christian and the Usos for the next two weeks. A tag team is probably the best thing for Swagger and Cesaro, because they're both pretty much hopeless as singles wrestlers at this point.

 

I'd like WWE to use experienced wrestlers on the road more. Holly, the Outlaws, Noble, Booker, people like that. Titus has been on the roster for three years or so now and he's still so bad. The Primetime Players could be money if they could wrestle, but I suppose they've just spent three years arsing about with other losers and NXT scrubs. Give them a couple of months against veterans on house shows and see if it ups their game.

 

I'm intrigued to see what happens with Bray Wyatt next week, so that's a positive thing.

There was no design to it at least until the heel turn. They killed him at Hell in a Cell purely because they deemed his worth to be less than that of sticking to the long-term plan... Then every decision after that while he was still a babyface was just "well we've already fucked him, there's no point in trying to get him over now at the expense of The Shield/Henry." When he turned heel and got all bitter, they made some sense of all his previous losses. But after Cena beat him, he had nowhere to go. There's no point trying to carry yourself as an unstoppable monster when every fucker you've ever wrestled on a big event, even little crackhead-looking tramps, has beaten you. Him quitting off a leg kick is more interesting than him winning would've been, purely for the strangeness of it. I'll take a "what the fuck?" moment over a too-little-too-late attempt at rehabbing his monster status.
