This time out, WWE RAW moved to the picturesque city of Montreal, Canada and fans were expecting a decent show. WIth Payback just round the corner and hardly any matches finalized, Montreal certainly looked like the venue where new storylines would take shape and existing ones took a turn for the better. Much to our relief, certain segments of the show looked promising whereas the other ones yet again yielded to WWE’s usual routine of fitting in their ‘squash matches’ and useless promos.Let us take a look at five such instances that pretty much took the sting out of WWE Raw’s tail this week:
#1 Fake Spiders?
Cody Rhodes’ transformation as Stardust is indeed a commendable effort. From the make up to the mannerisms, Cody has nailed every bit to fit the Rhodes’ family routine. The WWE too gave him his due as his ongoing animosity with goldust looked like it would culminate into a Wrestlemania classic. But, that was not the case and Rhodes once again finds himself at the bottom of the rung.
This week he faced R-Truth, a superstar of similar stature in a meaningless bout on RAW. To top it all, he won the match after he freaked out his opponent using plastic spiders. The segment takes the cake for being one of RAW’s lowest points of the night. Fake spiders Cody? really?
