Gotta love the eventful post-WM Raw; just a few thoughts:
1.) While Heyman's "The Streak is Over!" troll-job promo was gold as usual from him, is that basically the end of seeing Lesnar on the show until basically SummerSlam? Are they really going to have him break Taker's streak and then just leave?
2.)It was SO entertaining to see how over the Wyatt Family have gotten now, especially Bray. The WWE spent the last 7 years screwing up faction after faction with massive potential (i.e,The Nexus, The Straight-Edge Society); and now they have two in the Wyatts and the Shield that they're booking mostly right. Has there been a change on the writing team or something?
3.) I know the smarky crowd might have made this even more confusing, but is Cesaro a heel or not? He's with Heyman, who was a heel earlier in the show, but he going to feud with Swagger and Zeb, who appear to still be heels. But Cesaro is super-over with the crowd right now. Is he a tweener then? Hmmmm.
4.) I've heard mostly good things about Paige, and I know people have been bitching about AJ holdling the Diva's title forever, but unless AJ's contract was up, did she really have to lose the title that quickly to someone the majority of the audience hasn't seen before?
5.) Did I miss some reports about Sting supposedly showing up on Raw tonight? Because there were people all over the Raw thread acting very surprised that he didn't show up. And honestly, with Taker's streak being off the table, other that him an HBK, what 'dream match' scenario is left for Sting in the WWE now?
6.) So the Shield and Wyatts are going to headline Main Event tomorrow? Ugh, the WWE really is trying to get me to drop money on this damn network huh? It's crazy how the end of this show has kinda made this feud seem a little like an afterthought. I still want them to revisit it down the road. That feud deserves a cage match (I know it's the PG-era, but c'mon).
7.) Speaking of the end of the show, this was the perfect example how even something that's predictable can still come off strong. I would have been shocked as sh*t if Bryan lost the title tonight, even in a swerve. They've already done the 'Bryan gets screwed out of the title' storyline before anyway. The longer I didn't see The Shield on the show, the more it felt like they would interfere in the main event somehow. The backstage promo with Kane and Steph sealed it. I had been wondering who they could set up a face Shield to feud with, if not the Wyatt family again and having it basically be Evolution instead is huge for the boys. Aligning them with Bryan should make for some fun matches against the Authority. There's gonna have to be a pay-off ppv match for something this big--should be epic.
P.S. -- So happy they brought the face masks from yesterday back. So badasss, so hot, especially the way Dean wears it with the hoodie...just
