WWE Superstars who need to bounce back from WrestleMania 33 losses
Several Superstars are in a worse spot in their careers now after having lost at WrestleMania 33 and now is the time to turn things around.
Even in a seven-hour pay-per-view, there just isn't enough time for everybody to walk away a winner.
At WrestleMania 33, most of the WWE Superstars had to take a loss, but in doing so, some of them have been put in positions that force them to figure out a way to make up for that disappointment.
WWE is different when compared to other sports in that it doesn’t operate in terms of seasons, so there is no off-season where performers can reassess their problems and strategize ways to come back stronger.
Instead, things pick up right where they left off just 24 hours earlier and as Vince McMahon said on Monday Night Raw, the wheel just keeps on turning.
As such, these wrestlers who suffered some kind of loss on The Grandest Stage of Them All will find themselves in need of a new direction in order to counteract the shot to their credibility they just took. Failing is one thing, but failing on the biggest show of the year is something that may be hard to bounce back from.
Here are a few Superstars in need of a win, a change in character, a switch to the opposite brand or something to offset what happened to them this past week at WrestleMania.
#1 Enzo Amore and Big Cass
The Raw Tag Team Championship match at WrestleMania 33 saw quite a few changes, going from what looked to be a singles bout to a triple threat, followed by it changing into a ladder match and then the sudden introduction of The Hardy Boyz.
Before it turned into a Fatal 4-Way, it seemed like it was finally time for Enzo Amore and Big Cass to win some gold, as the two have surprisingly never been tag team champions in any capacity—not even in NXT where they were big fish in a smaller pond.
When given an option of going with the returning legends or the goofballs, though, WWE made the right choice. As entertaining as Enzo and Cass can be, fans would have been upset if Matt and Jeff Hardy had lost that match.
But where does that leave Enzo and Cass? They came up short as they always do.
Even on the Monday Night Raw to follow, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson had their rematch for the titles and new No. 1 contenders were crowned in Cesaro and Sheamus, leaving Enzo and Cass out in the cold.
You can only go so long without winning a belt before you start to look like chumps and this duo is inching closer and closer to the point of no return. If they don’t win tag team titles soon, they’ll essentially be in the same position Cryme Tyme was in: fun, but not very credible.
The best thing for Enzo and Cass would be to move over to SmackDown, where the only competition in the babyface tag team field right now is American Alpha, who already had their run with the belts and shouldn’t be up for the position of dethroning The Usos, which needs to be done somewhere down the line.
