This week's edition of WWE Monday Night RAW (5th August 2019) saw a lot of contrasting moments. From Roman Reigns almost being hit by a car to Goldberg's triumphant return towards the end of the show, last night's episode had it all.
Without any doubt, the red brand put forth a very eventful go-home edition of RAW just before SummerSlam 2019. Not only do we have SummerSlam to look forward to, but WWE has laid some important groundwork for long-term storytelling as well.
Let us take a look at some interesting observations from this week's episode of Monday Night RAW:
#3: WWE's attempt to make Seth Rollins appear cool has been bittersweet so far
Last night, a limping Seth Rollins tried to maintain his dignity by standing against Brock Lesnar despite not having any legitimate chance to survive against the Beast Incarnate.
As expected, Rollins ended up receiving another thrashing from Lesnar despite Paul Heyman's presence.
This was supposed to garner more support for Seth Rollins at this year's SummerSlam Pay-Per-View. But the segment did not work all the way through.
For some reason, a part of the weekly viewer can easily see through the premise of a segment that tries to make Seth Rollins look cool. Everyone gets it: Rollins lost his edge during the months following his victory at WrestleMania 35.
Maybe his recent controversies prevent fans from distinguishing between the character and the person himself.
Of course, none of this suggests that the WWE Universe have turned their backs against the Beast Slayer, but you have to ask yourselves: Did Seth Rollins garner enough momentum while heading into the Biggest Party of the Summer?
