Poor Dolph jobbed in his first match as a heel. No amount of postmatch beatdown will erase that.

Ah, but it makes sense in this situation.  Dolph had a lazy cover and Kalisto caught him.  It was Dolph's fault he lost and that's the whole crux of his turn: he's a failure in his current form and he has to find an edge again.  Beating the piss out of people with a chair helps give him that edge.

Cena going back to his hip hop promo style is actually kinda awesome here.

Women's cage match next week and they didn't fall over themselves talking about how HISTORIC AND HISTORICAL it is but instead gave a storyline reason for it.

The Raw rating dropped pretty much half a whole point in the third hour. I was sure that Taker would be last because once he did his thing there was little reason being given to keep watching.

Meltzer says that Taker v Cena is off for Mania.  Taker won't be in either title match.

Looks like Vince blew up most of the card.

Thinks Sasha v Bayley v Charlotte v Nia will be women's title match.

And Joe is most likely getting a call up and a major match at mania

3 matches set in stone are still

Brock v Goldberg

HHH v Rollins

Show v Shaq Diesel

Braun would kill Taker. You don't put an unseasoned monster like Braun in a match with a 50 year old man held together with prayers and baling twine.

Joe vs. Reigns is right there with an easy storyline.  Joe had to work through NXT even though he feels he didn't need to while Reigns is the golden boy who brags about his Samoan heritage.

It's hilarious that Show vs Shaq has been set in stone for like ten years to happen at Mania. Does Shaq even have any buzz anymore? It probably would've been perfect in 2012 or 2013 to do the match. Or just do a 90 second squash of Breezango or whatever.

Shaq will still draw in the one aspect they want in mainstream bullshit entertainment/talking head shows. The fact that most of the talk coming out of Mania last year from those shows was the fact there was Shaq in the Andre Battle Royal... nothing about what the main event was or anything that was built up for a while. Just Shaq, Rock, Austin, and Shane vs Taker.

So they'll at least get that aspect they want from it.

Yeah I remember last year my casual friends were asking me about Shaq in the battle royale. It's random shit like that that get's attention a lot of the time and at least Shaq is a big fan unlike so many of the dumbasses they brought in during the guest GM era.

Ryback was fucking awesome. He was starting to have some really fun matches near the end (with Kallisto for example) and he always worked his ass off even before then (my god the man did a corkscrew tope in one random raw match). His promos were different than most guys (The SECRET promo) and his tag team with Axel was good shit. I'd rather watch Ryback than a lot of the 205 goofs.

No! If you like something that smarks dislike then you have to hate something that they like to balance it out and troll.

No not at all. A lot of the 205 guys have done zero to impress me since the show started or on Raw. They've been boring as fuck. What has Nese, Daivari, or Gulak done that was any good since starting on the main roster? Some of the others have been giant let downs too but I've at least seen a few good matches from them so I'll give them a pass for now.

205 division has been a big failure in my opinion. Neville showing up and going heel has helped some but overall it has been disappointing as hell. I'll take Ryback being a goof and slowly improving over being frustrated at the waste any day.

The cruiserweights are boring because everyone (yes, I'm generalizing) tries to wrestle like them now. It's no longer unique as it would have been even just five years ago.

They just picked the worst people to put the initial focus on and had them wrestle the same WWE style matches instead of doing what the CWC did and show that there actually is no "Cruiserweight style" and all these guys can do different things.  They were fitting a square peg into a round hole.

It's the usual WWE (RAW especially) method of telling people how special and great something is while showing that it is not.

They changed what cruiserweight style is. They made the division almost entirely mat-based. I don't recall anyone else in WWE having to work matches this way.
