Title This: WWE Raw Reaction July 22nd, 2013

CM PunkThe Storylines

– Mark Henry was saved by Jimmy and Jey Uso as The Shield came to attack them. It looks like WWE will set up a 6 man tag team match at Summerslam between all of these men. Are we really supposed to believe that the faces can win here? I understand WWE needs to build tag teams, but it tells you so much about a tag team like Jimmy and Jey. They may have talent, but they are never going to be taken seriously. I would much rather see a new tag team debut or two legit singles stars make a team, so we have an ounce of believability that The Shield could be beaten.

Grade: C

CM Punk and Paul Heyman have another war of words. Punk calls his match "The Best vs. The Beast" and that will resonate with everyone who loves professional wrestling. It is much better than some of the nonsense they have come up with over the years. If you want to complain about the size difference, obviously you do not appreciate storytelling. Remember HBK vs. Taker? Taker vs. Punk? Jericho vs. anybody? Michaels vs. Diesel? The size argument needs to end because this sport is FAKE. Remember that and just sit back and enjoy the sheer excellence of Paul Heyman and CM Punk working together, with the most dominant athlete the WWE has in Brock Lesnar in the middle.

Grade: B+
