This Segment on RAW Went OFF THE RAILS and it’s EXACTLY What We Needed
RAW has been getting pretty stale as of late.
For those of you that haven’t been watching, I don’t blame you. Smackdown seems to be pulling away as the go-to weekly WWE programming worth watching, even with Jinder Mahal as Champ. The recent acquisitions of Shinsuke Nakamura and Bobby Roode are prime examples of this.
John Cena recently jumped ship over to RAW after finishing his feud with Baron Corbin at Summerslam. It’s clear that he is past his prime at this point and is moving towards being a part-timer. That doesn’t change the fact, though, that he is still WWE’s most recognizable talent and the face of the company. Sure, we have mega stars waiting to take that throne, but for now, it’s still his.
If Vince had his way, the next guy would undoubtedly be Roman Reigns. The backlash he continues to receive from the WWE Universe would tell you that the people feel otherwise. That’s why this weeks segment between John Cena and Roman Reigns was a breath of fresh air. It’s nice to finally see someone call him out on exactly what we all think and feel on a weekly basis.
This had the look and feel of a legit shoot promo. How can I tell? Not just because the fourth wall continually was broken, but because Reigns seemed to shit his pants when Cena was given an open mic and the freedom to speak his mind. Reigns resorted to tacky and overused lines like “I retired the Undertaker at WrestleMania” and “this is my yard now”. Give me a break, bro.
One of his first responses to Cena was “They boo you because, first of all, you suck.” Truly Shakespearean of you, Roman. You LITERALLY sound like a 12 year old girl. How Vince can listen to you when you open that stupid mouth of yours and actually think you’re capable of being the face of a company boggles my mind. Christ, Alzheimer’s is an awful disease. Like CM Punk once said, “maybe the company will be better off once Vince is dead but the fact of the matter is that it’s going to get taken over by his idiot daughter and his doofus son-in-law.”
Bottom line, no matter how much he’s shoved down our throats, the Universe will resist Roman. If history serves as precedent, then at some point the Roman Empire will finally fall.
Here’s the video so you can see for yourself what went down last night.
