I don't know if I'm alone in assuming this, so please feel free to correct me if you think otherwise. I just think that Roman Reigns came to SmackDown Live with a lot of momentum and all of the momentum was deflated this week.
I mean you had Roman Reigns knock Vince McMahon out on his very first night on the blue brand. There was a lot of speculation about what Vince McMahon or any member of the family would do to make Roman Reigns pay for his actions.
But the show just opened with Shane McMahon coming out and with Elias ambushing Roman Reigns in what had to be the biggest anti-climax I can remember in quite some time. Even the program in itself does not feel exciting at all.
Why would they make two RAW stars compete on SmackDown Live when both men made the jump?
