Just a few days before the grand Saudi Arabian pay-per-view Super ShowDown takes place, WWE creatives tried their best to come up with a good episode of Raw to build on the rivalries.
The night saw some good promos from men like Randy Orton, Triple H, and most importantly, The Deadman. The chilling promo from the legend ended Raw on a high.
Apart from that, there were quite a few matches that were scheduled for the night, but none except the opening match involving Roman Reigns, The Usos, Drew McIntyre, and The Revival were important enough to build towards the event.
Samoa Joe got back his United States Championship as Rey Mysterio was forced to relinquish it after suffering an injury.
However, WWE made a few too many mistakes in the go-home show of the flagship brand before the Super ShowDown event.
The Miz has been one of WWE’s top superstars for over half a decade. The man has done justice to each and every gimmick that has been handed to him and turned it into gold more often than not.
While The Miz was shifted from SmackDown to Raw as part of the Superstar Shakeup, his existence on the flagship brand has been affected by the Wild Card rule. With Roman Reigns and other SmackDown superstars taking the limelight on Raw every week, Miz has found himself underutilized since his feud with Shane McMahon.
We’d seen The Miz become part of the program between Reigns and Shane, but it seems like the creatives have taken a U-turn on whatever they had planned for The A-lister.
Instead of making The Miz feel like an afterthought and just giving him segments to keep him relevant, WWE should really use the extremely entertaining superstar to greater effect.
