5 things we wanted from WWE this week and what they delivered: 02nd May 2017
Did we get everything we asked for?
It's that time of the week again when we take a look back at the multitude of storylines, angles, and matches that the WWE presented to us and decide if we liked it or not. Every week, we have our own wants and hopefully, the WWE grants our wishes. This week we had three big events in Payback, Raw, and Smackdown.
While Payback was good for the most part, except for the occasional hiccup, this week’s episodes of both Raw and Smackdown suffered from the same problems. In a strange move, the WWE decided to keep the likes of Shinsuke Nakamura, Randy Orton, Braun Strowman, and Roman Reigns all off TV meaning both shows felt very empty with a lot of filler.
Despite excellent main events, the top of the show just didn’t do enough to save the rest of the content from feeling stale and unnecessary. The WWE definitely dropped the ball this time around. So, without any further ado, here are 5 things we wanted from WWE this week and what they delivered: 02nd May 2017:
#5 What we wanted: A good House of Horrors match; what we got: A terrible House of Horrors match
Look, I know the match falls into the “This is so bad, it’s great” category, but that doesn’t excuse the fact that it was atrociously constructed, shoddily booked, and had one of the worst endings imaginable.
The pre-recorded bit was campy throughout and felt like an overacted low-budget movie rather than a serious bout of professional wrestling. There were also a number of “What the hell?” moments such as the stipulation that the match had to be finished in the ring after starting in the House. And, then there’s the whole fridge incident.
The whole thing was a bunch of nonsense and the ending did little to gave Bray Wyatt any sort of credibility thanks to the interference of Jinder Mahal.
