WWE Monday Night RAW: May 11, 2015- 5 promising developments
This was a night of the return of Triple H and this was a night of a hometown hero as well and amidst all of that there was a sad moment which may be indelible for a long time.
This was the last Raw before the Payback Pay Per View, and it sure had its moments to talk about. Matches were added, intentions were made clear, tensions arose and Payback will be quite a test for Lana and Rusev, Kane and The Authority.
It’ll be interesting to note if someone actually gets a Payback. Raw was about finishing touches and building anticipation. The main event sure looks entertaining with the kind of different performers involved.
Here are the 5 promising developments from this weeks Raw-
1. The Night of Ambrose
It’s been a long time since Dean Ambrose has received this kind of attention. Sure, he may be in the main event to be the falls guy, to be the one who gets pinned, but this is the first time he’s getting some meaningful time in the spotlight ever since his great feud with Seth Rollins had to take a break last October.
The Cincinnati Crowd was going berserk for its hometown boy. And Ambrose did not disappoint. He was fun throughout. What’s promising is that this time in the main event spotlight has reaffirmed his organic popularity with the crowd. His nonchalance, his chutzpah and his craziness make him stand out and what better place to stand out than in the main event!
2. The John Cena Story
John Cena made his way to the ring for another edition of one of the best things WWE has come out with this year- The U.S Title Open Challenge. This week saw Cena square off against Neville. They went beyond the already high expectations and delivered a memorable match.
But looking beyond this challenge is one great factor and that is how much more respect Cena’s earning week after week. For a performer who gets the ‘You Can’t Wrestle’ chant a lot from the hardcore fanbase, Cena has been part of great match ever since this Open Challenge began. More often than not, his part of the show has been the best part of the show.
There is an underlying John Cena story playing and with his mic skills and wrestling skills, it accentuates the fact how great a pro- wrestler Cena is.
