I like Becky I really do but the facts are she she was thrust into the position shes in by happenstance and hasnt really done anything at all of note to cement that position in what feels like close to a year.

Apart from six months ago when she still looked the coolest woman on the planet.

The first bit is right. It wasn't the plan for her to be anything and she took advantage of an opportunity. They constantly fucked it and got away with it all the way to Mania but they've had nothing to follow it and now it's cold.

Disagree that the alliance is killing Becky though. She's by far the most popular of the two. It's killing Seth.

Seth is absolutely dreadful and I like seeing him flounder. Would be great if the smarky fans properly turned on him. You can feel it building.

I don't think dem turning on Seth would affect his standing much, at this stage. He's proper, proper over with kids and so called casuals. I assume his merch must be up there somewhere under Roman.

When was this?

For my money, WrestleMania alone completely exposed Becky's frailties - she was in a triple threat with the biggest star in the company and the woman who carries herself as the biggest star in the company. She looked small fry compared to them. I like Becky, but to me, she is a midcard babyface. She was doing well when she was having passable matches and putting goggles over the heads of little girls. At the top, she is out of her depth as there are a) more interesting characters than her, b) better workers than her and c) in some cases, both.

I will concede that I am prejudiced against her by the ludicrous fantasy booking that ensued when people were saying she should win the Men's Rumble etc. That isn't her fault. But I do not connect with her "The Man" persona as I think she comes across as someone who is superbly skilled in exploiting social media, but when it the times comes, she drips with insecurity. Becky got lucky that her eye socket was broken and provided THAT image - without it, her push would have been stone dead. And to think that people think it derailed her progress.

Becky is nothing without Ronda. Ronda was even more important than we seemed to think at the time. I’d start watching again if she came back.

Like who though? The best workers barely get TV time. You could plug Charlotte into her spot and I don't see how she's any more interesting. And Flair flat out sucks as a babyface. It's like they gave the big babyfaces their wins at Mania and have spent following months coasting, like they're waiting until the big Summerslam build/Fox move to give them all something fuck all interesting to do.

Jumping in here, watching RAW just now. Only watched the first half hour. Thought it was a brilliant, brilliant start. All the usual complaints seem to have been addressed. The usual angle opening, the robotic commentary, the samey production. Michael Cole was brilliant at selling the stage bump. The shakey cameras and chaos that followed the bump gave it such a genuine vibe. Great start

I really liked the opening angle as well, especially how much they've continued to hammer home how important it was. I thought the high angle camera shot of the area afterwards was a great touch as well. This angle and the follow up has been better than anything that has been on Raw in months. 

Less Baron Corbin, thumbs up. Seth and Becky together though? Death. I have absolutely no idea what was going on with the whole Maria/Mike thing either, less of that next time hopefully. 

There's no way I was watching a Miz Vs Elias 2/3 falls match. Skipped that. 

AJ being back as a heel should breathe new life into him and offers an interesting direction for him and Ricochet to go to. I'll look forward to their PPV matches, should they end up having them.

It's the one week of the year where I work a night shift at work and watch a Raw. It was pretty much complete shit. Heyman's really breathed new guff clouds into it.

Business as usual. Don't waste your time.

I didn't expect much this week, mostly because they're already in that Extreme Rules holding pattern. Think we got lucky with a few things last week.

The direction over the next few weeks post-PPV will be the real test.

Drake Maverick was once again MVP. The line about getting the the crate to do it was brilliant. 

The Nikki Cross promo was painfully awkward, however. Going from Nikkis in ring awkward promo to Beckys backstage promo just highlighted the difference between them. 

Montez Ford is going to be a star.

Who do you think is more aware that their partner is carrying them and that they’re probably fucked if the team ever breaks up? Angelo Dawkins or Tucker Knight? It’s crazy to have two teams at the same time where it’s so obvious that one member’s charisma is carrying the whole act.

Seth Rollins by the sounds of it.
