JC’s Top Rope Report: Random RAW Thoughts For 10.12.15
-First off yes, we did record a podcast last week. The problem is the file became corrupted and we were unable to upload it. We will be back next week. But the WWE has now stolen two ideas we came up with last week. The first being the start of a potential John Cena/Dolph Ziggler feud, and the second being a Randy Orton/Dean Ambrose feud. Listen WWE, if you want to hire Matt and I as creative team members, all you have to do is ask.
-Everything on RAW just seems so inconsequential nowadays. I’m watching all of these matches and it just seems like a win doesn’t mean anything. Especially when you consider a rematch is likely to happen on Smackdown. John Cena and Dolph Ziggler had a good match, but what does that do for Ziggler in the long run? There needs to be more meaning to these matches. But instead the WWE just throws half of them together like nothing.
-I know the WWE doesn’t book a show based off their crowd, but whoever booked that promo for Roman Reigns was just begging for him to get shit on by the Chicago crowd. And then after all of that, they do Reigns vs Braun Strowman. Sometimes you just can’t do stupid shit like that. You’re begging for a disaster. If the Cubs game was still on at that point, I bet half the fans would have been huddled around a TV inside the arena.
-This Rusev/Summer Rae/Lana storyline is so hard to figure out. The crowd is cheering for Lana, but they just revealed that Rusev has been engaged to Lana for a month. But Rusev has been smitten with Summer Rae. So does that make Summer the face here? But the fans will cheer Lana when she returns. I’M SO CONFUSED. Looks like Vince trying to get Rusev and Lana to break up in real life backfired big time in his face. And I’m glad. Rusev should main event Wrestlemania after all of the shit he’s been through.
-You know what REALLY pisses me off? This show is THREE FUCKING HOURS and they still don’t give 80% of their roster a TV entrance. Outside of the opening and closing segments, the only people who received one were John Cena and Dolph Ziggler to my knowledge.
-This show is pissing me off so much tonight. There’s ZERO storyline advancement going on tonight. So much about the product is bothering me right now. Lucha Underground cannot come back soon enough.
-And to end the show, Kane pins Seth Rollins. I’m out for the night folks. Because if I start ranting now, I’m not going to bed anytime soon.
