WWE RAW: 5 Errors on the show before Super ShowDown
RAW tonight was slightly better than the weak episode of last week. The show focused on the Beast Brock Lesnar's cash-in on Seth Rollins, which eventually led to a brutal beatdown of the Universal Champion at the hands of the Beast in the Box.
Among some certain positives, there were a lot of mistakes that WWE could have avoided on the show. In this article, let's take a look at the 5 biggest errors that WWE made on tonight's show of Monday Night RAW. Feel free to let me know in the comments section if I missed something.
#5 Where are you, Curt and Zack?
I seriously don't understand how can you not have your champion on the show for almost a month now! Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder are surely no Brock Lesnar in that they'll only appear on special occasions to get everyone talking.
The RAW Tag Team division was in a miserable state before the Superstar Shake-up, but with teams like The Usos, Viking Raiders, and The Club coming to RAW after WrestleMania 35, it looked like the division would get revamped. That hasn't been the case, of course.
With the RAW Tag Team Champions missing for almost a month, someone needs to remind Vince that they also exist and need some TV time.
#4 The United States title being handed over to Joe
The United States Championship had a lot of hype heading into RAW tonight. With Rey Mysterio scheduled to relinquish his title due to an injury, fans were wondering who would be crowned the new champion.
WWE themselves teased an amazing match for the same involving Samoa Joe, Ricochet, and Cesaro. But instead of this, what we witnessed was the title being handed over to the former champion, Samoa Joe. While I liked how Joe attacked Mysterio even after he gave him the title, there could have been a better way of putting back the title on the Samoan Submission Machine.
The fact that the whole roster is running behind R-Truth and his 24/7 Championship, but none of them cared to step up and try to get a shot at the United States Title is a little weird. Other than Ricochet and Cesaro, someone like Robert Roode or even Cedric Alexander could have used this opportunity to get some much-needed TV time and show the WWE Universe their excellence inside the ring.
