5 Questions Following Monday’s Raw (7/22)

This week’s Raw took place in Miami, Florida in the home of the Miami Heat. LeBron James and Flo Rida both made appearances, and Triple H crowned a new number one contender.

Overall, it was a rather exciting episode of Raw, with the build to SummerSlam officially underway. As always, a few questions were answer, but many still remain. Here are five questions that need to be answered following Monday’s Raw.

5. Is Poor Booking Hurting the Wyatt Family?


Bray Wyatt attacked Chris Jericho backstage at Raw last night and commandeered the Highlight Reel. Wyatt of course lost to Jericho clean at Battleground, while Luke Harper and Erick Rowan also failed to capture the Tag Team Titles once again.

A few weeks back, fans were chanting “boring” during Wyatt’s promo, leading me to wonder if poor booking is hurting he and his family. Ultimately, I think they will be fine, as they are some of the best talents in the business, but better booking could help make them appear stronger and increase their popularity. Here’s to hoping for a clean Wyatt victory at SummerSlam.

4. Has Bo Dallas Actually Won Me Over?


When Bo Dallas first appeared in the WWE, I thought his character was destined for failure. He seemed to be nothing more than a troll hell-bent on annoying anyone within a thousand-mile radius. He was once again victorious last night, extending his undefeated streak.

I must admit though, Dallas has really won me over in recent weeks. His promos have been hilarious and his in-ring work has seemingly improved on a weekly basis. I still feel that he needs a new finisher before he can be taken too seriously, but I’m sure that will come with time. I never thought I’d say this, but I believe Dallas could be one of the better midcard superstars and a run with either the US or IC title could restore some interest in the midcard championships.

    Lesnat destorys Cena for the first 25 mims of the match but Cena still kicks out after 10 F5s and does his 5 moves of doom and wins. I would love to read the comments on sescoops if this happes LMAO!

    • Aaron Whitey

      It’d be awesome!!!!!!

  • http://www.sescoops.com Undertaker316

    i think a better 4th question would be “what will cesaro joining the authority lead to?” since whether or not you are over on bo dallas doesn’t relate to the storylines, i think cesaro joining the authority could lead to cesaro vs brock lesnar feud if they have cesaro attack lesnar allowing seth rollins to cash in mitb at summerslam

    • Keith Kaleo Limos

      I could actually see that happening.

    • pwnez

      There is no way Lesnar is losing the title the same night he wins it. I think it’s been made clear Lesnar will have a lengthy title reign. I can see Rollins cashing in on Reigns (whenever he wins the title) but not on Lesnar.

    • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

      I don’t think he is… I think last night may have simply been a case of ‘let’s give him something to do tonight’. I question whether he’s actually part of the authority… especially since Ambrose handed it to him with the chair shot…

    • raVen

      ..what makes you think he joined them?
      he said “I want to be an authority guy” that was it. Nothing indicates he’s apart of the authority

  • ricky

    Shows how poor the standards of wwe are these days if bo Dallas can win someone over.

    • http://www.sescoops.com Undertaker316

      bo dallas gimmick is hilarious its like a shoot gimmick at justin bieber and john cena

    • http://www.apaeattire.com/ Bo > You

      you just gotta bo-lieve.

    • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

      Bo is great, actually. As a character… that’s about it though.

  • http://www.apaeattire.com/ Bo > You

    Bo Dallas is god

  • http://www.apaeattire.com/ Bo > You

    The Wyatts kinda took a backseat after MITB.
    Paige turning heel was the BEST thing for her. Her baby face persona was cringeworthy to say the least, it didn’t seem natural at all.

    I hope they actually use this new black stable well, they need to stop dropping the ball with Woods, dude is sick.

    • Jose Mourinho

      imagine:Woods,Henry(C),kofi,big e, titus and khali(because i consider him brown.

      • raVen

        Khali?? you really are wwe creative

        • Jose Mourinho

          Was just waiting for a comment like that lol.

  • pwnez

    Is bad booking hurting the Wyatt Family? Yes and no. It’s hurting Bray more than it’s hurting Harper and Rowan. They need to become tag team champions. Bray is still way over with fans so it’s not like he’s done for.

  • ibeBrave

    They need to add titus O neal to the NOD

    • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

      Would be a good fit.

    • brad

      I agree Titus or even a veteran Mark Henry wouldn’t be bad.

    • CheapOp

      Yes! And led by David Otunga, :P. Jkjkjk. However, it’d be nice if they included someone from the original stable. Henry’s still around, but I’m thinking D’Lo Brown, maybe?

    • FusRoDah

      I think on Smackdown they planted the seeds for Titus to join them as well

  • pwnez

    And did we see the rebirth of the Nation of Domination? Possibly, but it didn’t seem like the fans cared. Woods received a harsh “What?” chant throughout his entire promo.

    • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

      Probably because it kind of came out of nowhere… there was no build to that moment. Would have been cooler to see Woods on the stage a few times leading to this moment, scouting the talent… or talking to guys like Kofi and Big E backstage and them resisting… it felt kind of rushed and out of place. But I’m excited for the potential it holds.

      • raVen

        the weird camera cut didn’t help me at home. all the sudden he’s in the ring and giving this promo but I’m still wondering if my dvr messed up or if I missed something

        • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

          Agreed… they didn’t show him coming out or anything. Maybe that’s the point. Maybe he’s going to be some kind of ‘higher being’ like character? I don’t know… lol. It was a weird cut – no doubt.

        • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

          Though the more I talk about it – maybe it was intentional. Maybe they wanted it to really seem like it wasn’t part of the script – like he just did it – so the cameras didn’t know to be on him, etc… hm

        • Tim

          I was like Where the hell did he come from? The Wyatts got nothing on that teleportation stunt

  • MajorHeel

    A few black guys form a new group and everyone thinks it’s the new Nation of Domination I kind of figured this would happen

  • Krokvar

    I am Malcolm “X”avier Woods and we stand united.

  • https://www.behance.net/partci partci

    When Xavier dropped his promo, at first I thought about NOD as well, but than I remembered the 3MB are no more…

    Otherways, the answer about your Wyatt question is “yes”.

  • inyo

    Putting Woods and those guys together only means something if they start letting those guys go out and beat people up. I have no confidence in the people running the show to allow this to happen. Titus had a ton of potential when he broke away from Young. All they had to do was let him start beating people up, but they turned him into a loser immediately.

    Why should anyone care about Bray beating up Jericho anymore? Jericho just left him laying knocked out cold in their match. This is what happens when you book guys to lose and look weak.

    I don’t understand why Ziggler becoming IC champ would suggest that he was getting pushed. I thought everyone agreed that title means nothing. For example, Miz loses clean the night after he won the thing. The sign to me that they may be coming around on Dolph was him using the superkick. Him winning that title is irrelevant.

  • David Strong

    They should have Mark Henry join the group next and maybe R-Truth and Titus O’neil this could become a new dominant stable.

  • raVen

    5. ABSOLUTLY!!!!
    4. about time you start BO- leiving.
    3. Yes she can and yes she will.
    2. God let’s hope so!
    1. I hope so.. those poor guys need something to help them get over

  • LACenaFan

    The answers to all the questions are YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!

  • Chuck Norris

    Bo Dallas always inspire me for some ways. To ”Keep smile”

  • CheapOp

    “I never thought I’d say this, but I believe Dallas could be one of the better midcard superstars and a run with either the US or IC title could restore some interest in the midcard championships.”

    You misspelled “BOlieve”.
