Raw this past Monday was better than what the WWE Universe has been seeing in the last few weeks, but it wasn’t completely satisfying. A few rematches, John Cena poking his nose in other people’s business and making it his own, and of course, a lame Diva’s match. A running motif of the night was attack. Being in a wrestling league you start to notice things that happen throughout the show, because of the points system. Thanks to the point system that I follow, I noticed all of the attacks that went down throughout the night.
I just want to get it out of the way that I enjoyed seeing Dean Ambrose open up RAW. It’s been weird without him on the show. I did not enjoy seeing John Cena walk out in the middle of Dean’s segment, because now he has beef with Seth. So if anyone were to get their hands on Seth, it would be John Cena. This is ridiculous! The feud is Dean vs. Seth, not John vs. Seth. I get that Cena would want to take out Seth after he cost him his match against Brock Lesnar, but that isn’t what the fans want to see.
Continuing on, I didn’t like that there were Night of Champions rematches. It just felt too soon. I do like that Dolph Ziggler is the IC Champ once again but it just makes me ask, “Why did the Miz have to win it at Night of Champions if he was just going to lose it the next night?” I felt like the WWE was just trying to end certain feuds rather than build on them.
The highlight of the show would have to be Dean Ambrose and it’s not just because he returned. First he had a match against Corporate Kane which he won via disqualification due to an interference from Seth Rollins. Then, Dean Ambrose attacks Seth Rollins backstage and instead of getting thrown out of the building, as ordered by Triple H, Stephanie McMahon orders him to be locked inside a room. As the show goes on, Triple H books a match between John Cena and Randy Orton for the main event. Seth Rollins makes a promise to Randy Orton that he had a surprise for him at the end of his match. I’m sure Seth didn’t intend Dean Ambrose to make a mysterious escape from his locked room and attack the Authority.
I was not expecting that ending. I was thinking that we would have seen Dean leave the room by tricking the guards, but we find out how Dean escaped on Main Event. I really don’t think John Cena really has a place to be feuding with Seth Rollins. John Cena could be useful but the real feud is between Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. Dean Ambrose clearly stole the show and the WWE Universe loved it. I can’t wait to see what else happens now.
