JC’s Top Rope Report: Random RAW Thoughts For 8.3.15

-That was a very good opener between Neville and Seth Rollins. I have no problem with it. But man, if the WWE had balls, they could have redone the Jericho/HHH storyline from RAW in the Attitude Era. Have Neville win the Title, but Rollins gets it back at the end of the night due to a technicality or something. Would have had people talking and made for an interesting night.

-Giving Cesaro and Kevin Owens time on MizTV to get their program over works for me. Giving mid-card feuds actual time to develop into something has been missing on WWE TV for some time now. Any opportunity to expand on one is fine with me.

-At least the Paul Heyman promo explained why The Undertaker didn’t just fight Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 31. Paul Heyman is doing one hell of a job selling this feud/match going into SummerSlam. He’s making me want to see this match now, despite not having any real interest in it from the start.

-Was kind of disappointed we didn’t get more comedy gold from Rusev tonight. Instead we got serious ass kicker Rusev. I guess that was needed for a week.

-I really like these house show main events that end RAWs when they are in between shows. They are a lot of fun and you can tell the performers really enjoy it as well. And the crowd loves them so they are definitely working. Roman Reigns was especially on point tonight and he was showing a lot more passion/emotion than normal.

Until Next Time,
