Title This: WWE Raw Reaction “The Youth Movement Continues”

Josh Isenberg

The Undercard

wwe raw reactionFandango defeated Santino Marella when Santino got distracted in trying to kiss Emma. I find it funny this feud is more about the Divas than the Superstars. I like Emma, a lot, and feel like she is going to get more popular because of her awkward personality. This is a start and she will need to change sooner rather than later. This did not impress me at all, but I blame the writers for making this boring and uneventful. 

Score: 2/10

Roman Reigns defeated Mark Henry after an impressive dominance he showed. I loved the fact that WWE let Reigns control and dominate the match. It furthers my belief that Reigns will be in a match against Ambrose in some capacity in the next month. The Samoan drop and the spear on Henry were very well executed and impressive.

Score: 6/10

Jack Swagger defeated Kofi Kingston by having Kingston tap out to the Patriot Lock. I wanted to see Swagger face someone that is close to the size of Big E. You really did not get what you were going to see on Sunday whatsoever. I think Swagger vs. Big E will be a good brawl, but I question the overall angle WWE is trying to execute here. Does Swagger have any shot at winning? I certainly do not think so. Swagger is a great athlete who really needs Zeb to stay relevant.

Score: 4/10

Big E defeated Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal. Let's be honest, Zeb Colter made this match by talking the entire time and bashing the champion. Big E struggled to get any offense in until Big E tossed Drew to the outside and hit a clothesline onto Mahal. He finally was able to hit a belly to belly on both men and hit a Big Ending for the win. The crowd seems to care less and less about Big E right now. I really did not feel the intensity and intrigue. I like Big E, but the match and overall way it was scripted fell short for me. It seemed like a better version of Ryback in 2012.

Score: 4/10

Jey Uso defeated Billy Gunn. Simple match with Jey going over on one half of the tag champs. I am interested to see what happens on Sunday. I do not think The Uso's will win, but I am not sure how clean the champions will win. It really could go a multitude of ways.

Score: 5/10
