Maybe it's just me but they've really messed up on Black. Could have debuted him tonight as just big star, but threw him into a tag team as some guy from NXT. I don't know why I'm surprised really. He can't even get himself announced as a big RAW draft lol.

Someone mentioned it earlier so I won't take credit for it; but I think they put these two together for now so they don't get lost in the shuffle as singles on the main roster right out of the gate, which they would with Vince's awful booking. This is better than them getting lost in the shuffle immediately. They will eventually break up and probably feud. Maybe even for SummerSlam, which would be a good match/feud for SS.

Re: 04/15 Raw Discussion Thread: Superstar Shake-up begins

The Viking Experience lol. Fricken Vince. Eff off with these name changes or shortened names already senile old man. I guess "war" is another word that is forbidden to mention on TV along with "#1 contender", "title shot", "strap", "DQ" and other phrases. Anyways, about RAW. It was an alright show with a lot of the names coming to RAW made sense. I was right about the Usos and Naomi but got the rest wrong. Was hoping for Bayley to get moved but Naomi randomly tag teaming with her and beating the Iconics was unexpected.

The Miz got moved to RAW again. Poor guy. Not sure about Andrade to RAW either but his match against Balor was not bad. Is Rey Misterio now on RAW too? Thats two Latino guys added to the show then. I was confused at the Zayn/Bliss segment. Bliss was acting like a face or something. Becky Lynch squashed the poor Riot Squad and then gets to do a promo with Natalya. Lacey Evans was impressive with that moonsault finisher onto Natalya to become the new #1 contend...oops, banned term. To earn an opportunity for the RAW's Women Title. I am happy for AJ Styles coming to RAW though as its been a long time coming. The worst moment of the night had to go to EC3 getting buried by Braun Stroman. What did he do to deserve this? Lol. Fricken Vince.

What was the weird vignettes, then?

The dinosaur puppet in the box, and the Annabelle looking doll?

Anyone?

I almost think at this point Vince just likes ruining good talent from NXT just for shits and giggles. War Raiders was an awesome name. No doubt they're fucked on the main roster.

My highlight other than Zayn toying with the crowd was The Uso’s being spoiled (although quite obvious anyways like AJ) by someone in the back on production cocking up. Promotion in store.

Seems to be hinting at a Bray Wyatt return to me. The doll could be Sister Abigail?

On Raw- I like AJ moving over, a feud with Seth Rollins needs to happen before Styles slows down anymore.

Don't mind Rey coming over, but I noticed Andrade came over too (actually missed the first hour of Raw). WWE might want to continue their feud on the flagship.

Viking Experience is an awful name, guess USA Network execs don't want "war" on the show- it was the only justification I could think of given that War Raiders was already a WWE given name (originally War Machine).

Miz swapping shows is entering meme territory. Every damn year.

I forgot about the blink and you’ll miss it Eric Young switch too. I wonder if that leads to anything, probably a new tag team.

I could see Wolfe going to NXT:UK and Killian staying solo on Smackdown or rocking around with Nikki Cross. Looks like Heavy Machinery and Cross are going to SD tonight (only ones not drafted to Raw last night).
