The biggest winners and losers of Raw Reunion (July 22)
Raw Reunion was a fun rollout of old legends, but we can't deny that it was primarily done to pop ratings. I must say that not much was done on the end of furthering a lot of the potential SummerSlam feuds, and with the summer extravaganza only a few weeks away, coming early this year, time is of the essence. And so far, the big event feels lacking. WWE will need to go into overdrive to build this event.
But what about last night? Who got the most and least out of last night's show? What actual feuds between full-time performers advanced as the company moves closer to Toronto? Let's take a look.
Losers: The Revival
This was a fun tag team match, but WWE sure does love having The Revival lose in non-title matches, don't they? That they lost thanks to the old distraction provided by a legend somehow made it worse. The company has still given us no reason to take them seriously as champions.
Logic would indicate that The Usos will get another shot at the titles at SummerSlam, but we've seen this kind of formulaic booking so many times that it's hard to get excited. What was once a legitimate dream match now feels like it's just there.
Loser: Drew McIntyre
At the start of the year, Drew McIntyre was looked at as a prime Universal Championship contender. Many had him fingered to be the next titleholder after Seth Rollins. Then he found himself embroiled with Shane McMahon. Now he's feuding with Cedric Alexander.
Alexander is a great performer, but he's been treated as such an afterthought on Raw that there's no way to describe it as other than a giant step down. We know McIntyre is going to win this feud anyway, so it's not like Alexander will get promoted, either.
It's pure wheel spinning.
