JC’s Top Rope Report: Random RAW Thoughts For 6.22.15

JC Top Rope Logo

-Boy have I missed Paul Heyman promos. Hearing a Heyman promo to start the show instead of an Authority one was great. And yes, Brock Lesnar should have noogied Michael Cole to death.

-The Sheamus/Roman Reigns match may have been brutal, but the crowd did just not care at all when Sheamus had control of the match. Once Reigns started his comeback there was some crowd involvement, but the fans aren’t taking Sheamus seriously at all yet.

-You know, if they would have stuck with Bray being upset about not being in Money in the Bank and hating that Reigns was the chosen one, this would be ok. The fact that they are involving his daughter in all of this just isn’t clicking with me. It screams like an episode of Law & Order: SVU.

-If King Barrett wins a match over Zack Ryder, does it really count?

-Don’t get me wrong, I like the little exchanges between Kevin Owens and John Cena. But I will be interested to see what they do to keep things interesting for another month until Battleground. At this point I would just lay off the promos and have both men win matches going forward to build up to the match.

-Ryback vs Miz vs Big Show. Is it possible to feel bad for Ryback? Because I do. Here’s a guy who is getting over with the audience and he is stuck facing the two guys with the most go away heat in the company.

-Watching this Dolph Ziggler/Lana stuff totally has me buying into the rumor that Vince McMahon is behind this and wants Lana and Rusev to breakup in real life. And if true, then Vince is a worse human being than I thought. Let people be happy in real life.

-Wow, surprised to see Brock Lesnar have an extended brawl there at the end of the show. Of course, he almost screwed up his leg after taking the Pedigree wrong. But that was a good way to get Rollins over at the end while also not making Lesnar look weak in the process. The WWE had to get fans to buy into Rollins as a threat against Lesnar, and that ending helped.

Until Next Time,
