In your eyes, what's the worst of all RAW episodes you remember?
Just watched RAW after Survivor Series 97, and it's totally abysmal and almost worthless (short Rock vs Austin segment was ok). Heatless segments by the ton, brutal botches, bad interviews (Jarrett/JR!!), lame Butterbean stuff, NOBODY was over except DX, Taker, hot female valets/ring announcers (Sable & Sunny), and to a lesser extent Shamrock. Remember watching it back in the days as a young teen and being heavily disappointed
pngYou knew I couldn't let that one slide broski…but there's probably a small grain of truth there.Colors obviously chosen to resemble what life was like for people before and after the big event.It actually looks like things fell off a cliff post Superstar shakeup and never really recovered to the level before that. If anything it looks like Jinder juiced the ratings up for a little while.The biggest spike in the green end is when Vince comes to Smackdown, in fact. Maybe he should have been challenging Jinder instead?
wrestling/kevin-owens-sami- zayn-sent-home-wwe-european- tour/Doesn't make sense. Sami and Kevin are from every report I've ever heard or read two of the nicest most respectful guys on the roster. They don't even party like a lot of the guys and gals.I even watched the end of the Sami match back again and I didn't see anything there that would constitute "going into business for themselves". Sami loses to a cross body (lame) and Kevin throws some worked punches and they run away. All seems to be apart of the storyline, which I should asd is Sami and Kevin not caring about Smackdown, I.E. "going into business for themselves".So is this how WWE has to garner heat? Create fake stories in real life to trick the fans? Or is this legit?
Styles vs. Lesnar sounds good but I do not want a match between these two with Brock in preparation for Roman. Mainly because we're not going to get a legit, this match don't mean nothing, we're just going to go out there and tear the house down match. And WWE doesn't want want anyone to tear the house down with Brock because they want him to look as strong as possible for Roman. He's going to kill AJ and I think it's a waste of him on this card.Your thoughts?
I like me some Rock and Sock as much as the next guy, but they probably had, like, three matches as a team. I'm talking real tag teams who stuck around for a while and could realistically be called a unit.
A) this is just a ratings thing, Jinder wins it back in India, and the Mahal/Cena WM plan commences unscathed Or…
B) is this a huge indictment of the Mahal experiment and is this the end of main event Jinder, with WM plans seemingly changed. Maybe Jinder/Cena stays but job title and they do AJ/Nakamura?
C) If A, how can you still trust Jinder till Mania, when you tried and failed to sell the Brock match
D) Does Brock give a different effort against AJ, or is this an extended Suplex City squash?
My gut says A unfortunately. This feels like Luger beating Hogan right before Road Wild 97.
Without spoiling anything (might wanna check out wwe.com soon though), AJ gave Jinder his damn best match of his career. That's the type of miracle worker he just is
Is this the most desperate promotional tactic of all time?
