Why RAW isn't making any sense right now

Finn Balor being out. It feels like everyone (well, the four main eventers) have no actual plan or story for the UC belt situation right now. They must have had a well-planned journey lined up for Balor to last thru WM season whether it went over or not (refer to Reigns 15-16), because it makes no fucking sense that Seth Rollins underwent the most half-assed face turn of all time. He's obviously having to fill in as the face in the storyline, but it just has no back story to make any of it mean anything to the viewers. I'm pretty indifferent to Finn Balor as I don't watch much of the indies or NXT, but i know that if he wouldn't have gotten hurt by the infamous buckle bomb, RAW would have at least had something fresh going on in the title picture instead of this bullshit were being subjected to right now.

They rushed the HHH angle, at a time when HHH had no plans on being an active member of the roster because he's trying to act like he's believable as a bad ass part timer like Undertaker.

Clear as day that they see KO as a transitional title holder, they're holding off big plans untill their intended holder returns.

Go ahead and get this out of the way now but when does it ever make sense lol? But yeah, it's pretty obvious they're just coasting until Finn Balor gets back.

Re: Why RAW isn't making any sense right now

Pretty much nailed it. There was talks of turning Rollins face eventually, but when Finn got hurt they had to call an audible. Pushed the Rollins face turn much quicker than planned, which is why the feud with HHH makes no sense right now. Seth continues to be in limbo until the Rumble. I'm hopeful that given the 5 month stalling of this feud, they planned out an awesome story. They've had more than enough time to build it for WM, but we'll see.

triple h is better than the undertaker. At least HHH can make his feuds believable, soemthing zombie taker and his RIP strike you with lightning promos never do for me.

Re: Why RAW isn't making any sense right now

Rollins is still an unlikeable, whiny prick just like he was as a heel. Terrible guy to have as top babyface. Finn's injury really messed everything up.

Re: Why RAW isn't making any sense right now

All it takes to ruin anything is one part Stephanie McMahon and one part Triple H. And there is the UC scene since Balor went down.

They should have NEVER allowed HHH to get involved with this shit if he had no intention of actually working TV. Oh noes Seth Rollins vs. HHH is just TOO BIG for normal shows, it HAS to be during Mania season Fucking idiots.

Re: Why RAW isn't making any sense right now

Triple H has put Raw in filler hell.

They clearly do not want Rollins reach his apex just yet. At the same time don't want Owens to make him look bad because Rollins will be in a big program with H. So what we have here is a stand still for the past 4 months (FOUR). All this because Triple H doesn't want Owens to get too over as the new top dog. He will also give himself the credit for getting Rollins over as a face even though his momentum is dying fast.
