#5 Kevin Owens finds some help
It’s never a dull moment when Kevin Owens kicks off RAW. He opened up the final RAW of the decade, voicing his displeasure about the attacks by Seth Rollins and AOP. It was interesting to watch him blame Rey Mysterio’s loss at the Madison Square Garden on the beatdown by Rollins and AOP last week.
This brought out Rollins, Akam, and Rezar who addressed the WWE Universe. This did not work well with The Prizefighter who left the ring to take on the three heels himself.
As the numbers game proved too much for the former Universal Champion, Samoa Joe’s music hit and he took down Akam and Rezar before applying the Coquina Clutch to Rollins.
This was an incredible opening segment that gave fans something big to look forward to in the coming weeks. With the WWE Champion away from television for extended periods, it will be great to watch Rollins, Owens, and Joe along with the AOP work together to give fans some good hard-hitting content without any titles on the line.
KO mentioning Mysterio earlier could signal towards The Master of 619 joining the two babyfaces to even out the numbers game.
