A Whole Bunch o’Them

The opening segment did check some boxes. First was the explanation for the controversy that went down at the Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia. Second was the mandatory home-town hero pops. Third,… well… the segment did not really do much else of worth. Jinder Mahal, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Bobby Lashley, and Braun Strowman were thrown in from out of nowhere, but apparently this is how WWE starts storylines nowadays, so no complaints.

Anyhow, the segment led to one hell of a main event line-up, so we were cool. Just kidding…NO WE WERE NOT! The hottest returnee to the company and the Monster Among Men apparently are stuck together in an unbeatable tag team now, while either should be well on the cirrocumulus of the main event atmosphere. And no, we do not need another monster tag team on RAW right now, as enticing as Strowman and Lashley vs Authors of Pain may sound.

 

Hurt At Home

(Elias def. Bobby Roode via Match Stoppage)

Yes, whenever you have a show in Canada, all Canadian stars must make an appearance. It was Bobby Roode’s turn this time, but it was not as GLOOOORIOUS as he might have expected, since his shoulder got “hurt” after being smashed into the steel bar that connects the ring post to the ring buckle. Seemed to be the start of a midcard feud with loads of potential, considering the collective charisma of Seth Rollins and Triple H. Wait, what were we thinking?

 

A Challenge Laid Down

Six days before Backlash, and we were treated to a pairing that was more mouth-watering than the PPV match itself. Finn Balor vs Seth Rollins is well on its way to become one of those classic workman feuds, fighting all over the place for different championships before being cemented in WWE history as a classic rivalry. And you know what, we do not even have a problem with that. Guys, keep doing your thing.

The Miztourage’s attempts at joining forces with Finn Balor and/or Seth Rollins are becoming more and more amusing. Keep it goin’ boys.
