We’re officially on the road to Summerslam! After Sunday’s awful Battleground PPV, I was hoping WWE would give us some good programming to make us forget about that event and get us all hyped for Summerslam in four weeks. Did they? Read on!
Both Raw and Smackdown launched some new feuds or added to the heat this week to ones that were teased or are recent. I found both shows to be a really good reset after the Payback PPV and heading into the next Smackdown PPV, Backlash in less than two weeks.
I’m skipping my usual Raw/Smackdown thoughts feature this week as Raw was complete filler and Smackdown wasn’t too much better. I feel WWE has been treading water to get to this PPV just so they can really get down to the brand extension stories.
Maybe it was the show, or maybe it as the company, but I enjoyed the show a lot more than I thought I would. On the other hand, it was way too long. In my 20s or teens, this is what I would dream about: seeing a long PPV instead of the dreaded 10:45 PM […]
I don’t know if I’m getting surlier as I get older or if I just reflect too much on what WWE SHOULD be doing instead of enjoying WHAT they’re doing but this year’s Wrestlemania is probably the least anticipated in my books in a long time.
Holy crap….was this a regular Raw show without commercials and a special attraction or was this supposed to be a PPV hyping the “road to Wrestlemania?” This show, besides two matches and some of the action in the ring, was a disappointment and full of lazy, lazy booking/storytelling.
We’re less than two weeks away from the Royal Rumble and besides hyping the Rumble match on Raw, I really didn’t come away from the show with any more interest than I already had. Same goes for Smackdown. Here’s what resonated with me this week.
