WWE Raw 5/14/18: Roman Reigns spears Jinder Mahal through the wall




Oh my god did they make an intern's 10 year old child put up that wall?

There was a brief, brief time where Hero looked like he could have actually been that guy but his thyroid problems inflated him like a balloon and now he's never going to be a mainstay on the roster. He came in too early for the NXT revolution, then came back late enough that he's a better player-coach for the roster and will probably end up in a Regal or Sara Del Rey type roll.

Fat angry Chris Hero is the best Chris Hero, honestly. I'm hoping he at least gets a dark match at Takeover Chicago.

Which is funny because didn't he get heat in his first NXT run for kinda acting like a coach and just answering questions if guys had them, because he had over a decade experience and was well regarded as a guy who knew what he was talking about?

To this day the only evidence that needs to be pointed to that now is nowhere near as bad as the dire 2005-2008 era is that they made Armando Estrada stop using his introduction as Umaga's manager because he got over with it. It was a time when if you got over and you weren't supposed to you would be punished much much harder than even today would. There's so much mid 2000 WWE talent that was just misused to an insane extent. That Cena was on top during that period was responsible for a lot of the hatred for Cena, because there was so much other good stuff that was being buried underneathe. It did lead to the biggest rise of RoH though under Bryan Danielson (started by Samoa Joe's reignbut i digress) which a direct line can be drawn with to todays product.

There are lost episodes of course. Stories that were commissioned but never made. Or made but misfiled, post broadcast. Sheer incompetence, of course.

I had RAW on as background noise while setting up another modded-as-gently caress Skyrim run and remember nothing from all three hours save Roman being booed and Jinder being cheered during the opening segment.

The Smackdown/Raw split is extra annoying to me because that split in resources would be way, way better served having a dedicated diva event or tag team event rather than stapling those onto The Stuff Vince Actually Wants To See.

Instead we have two arbitrarily split rosters for....reasons?

Yeah, a quick spear at an intersection would have looked real good, but anything is an improvement over something that fake looking.

I still think Bryan trying to move Cass' hand to break the hold is the gif of the year, but Roman spearing Jinder through super fake cardboard is probably the gif that best sums up the mistakes the company is making right now.

That's what this whole awfully acted setup was.

Ronda said there's others ahead of her who deserve it but Nia insisted because it's her call to choose her opponent.

I hope Ronda's gimmick is we keep getting convinced she'll have the worst match of the night and she keeps having the best one. Like somehow she has a match with Dana Brooke and it's macho man vs ricki steamboat levels and noone can explain why.

Actually I kinda take back what I said, Ronda might be the #1 contender cause I can't think of a RAW woman that doesn't seem like a gigantic loser. I read "there's others ahead of her" and my reply is "YEAH! Like.......... umm........... Naomi? No wait..."

Guess it's up to Ember Moon to save the division.

Oh yeah the funniest part about that Ronda vs Nia announcement is a bunch of the female talent were told to tweet out how excited they were for the match. And then Sasha liked these tweets:



Even though she's 100% right, this is probably why she'll never sniff another title again.

Do the two shows usually give divas half the runtime each? If so then fair enough I suppose.

It's just frustrating because they have so much good womens talent but they dont have a sort of unifying showrunner like HHH to NXT to write competent storylines and good matchups. It seems like they just get WWE's b-team of writers.

She actually specifically said others who have been around longer. So she was just going for time served. Smart play.

Literally the only other woman on Raw arguably ahead of her in contendership is Alexa and she just lost her rematch. Maybe Ember since she was a win over Alexa, but it was a tag match.
