Here is everything YOU missed on RAW 25 the 25th anniversary celebration of Monday Night Raw !!!! Featuring The Miz, Seth Rollins, Jeff Hardy and The Nature Boy Ric Flair!!!!
Monday Night Raw’s twenty fifth anniversary show was a show that wanted to be old school and also the new generation, but ended up a hodgepodge of both.
The show aired from The Manhattan Center which featured the old school wrestlers , and The Barclays Center which featured the new generation of wrestlers.
The show started out with the promising return of Vince Mcmahon and Stone Cold Steve Austin at The Barclays Center. The beginning of the show should have started at The Manhattan Center, as that was the venue where it all began twenty five years ago.
After the opening viewers were treated to action mostly from The Barclays Center and not too much from the much heralded Manhattan Center. There was really no reason but greed, for the WWE to have the show from two venues, if they were just going to use The Manhattan Center for a Undertaker and DX promo and a few throw away matches.
The WWE should have just used The Manhattan Center for the whole Raw, with JR and The King on the announce team and Howard Finkel as the ring announcer, then it would be a truly memorable event with a old school feel.
The problem I had with the show, was the lack of interaction between the new and the old school wrestlers. The WWE should have had Steve Austin as the special Raw GM for the night, with a DX takeover during the night. The WWE had so many missed opportunities that could have been unfortunately. They could have had a the new age outlaws vs The Bar or something that would have had the old school vs the new generation of RAW. Just a lot of missed opportunities with the show. Hopefully WWE steps it up with the upcoming Royal Rumble on Sunday night. !!!!!
Well it’s that time of year again…Time for WWE Summerslam, the WWE event of the summer. This years Summerslam takes place again at The Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York. This is the third year that Summerslam is coming from The Barclays Center. I like the buildup of this event, as it feels like a big event feel. The card is stacked and I think we are going to get a really good show. Here are my predictions , of what is going to go down tonight. Join us HERE tomorrow for our Summerslam Recap!!!
Summerslam 2016 : Sometimes less is more.
We are back with our Summerslam recap here on Superfanworld.com .
Summerslam which was broadcast LIVE from The Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York, and it was a good show for the first half and then went downhill fast. With the preshow Summerslam was a 5 hour show, which is a total overkill of a wrestling event. Only 5 hour show should be Wrestlemania. All these hours burns the fans watching and there out.
The main problem with Summerslam were the position of the matches….they should have organized it better and put the Universal title match with Finn Balor vs. Seth Rollins as the main event, as this match was awesome and was the best match on the card, along with John Cena vs. Aj Styles.
Rusev vs. Roman Reigns was a bust…It never even got started as they were fighting outside the ring the whole time. The WWE should have scrapped the whole match, if they knew they were running out of time. They could have shown them fighting earlier backstage and then it would have been scrapped.
Sasha banks Vs. Charlotte….Not sure why they made Sasha drop the title so soon. Reports say that she is injured and some are saying she failed a drug test. If the WWE bookers were smart they could have NOT have Sasha win a few weeks ago and built up a better storyline for her when she comes back. WWE dropped the ball with that one.
John Cena Vs. Aj Styles : Great match and hopefully this leads to a championship reign of Aj Styles soon.
Finn Balor Vs. Seth Rollins : People were chanting more for the NEW ugly belt then they were the match. This match happened too late, and the fans were burned out by the time the match started. But a great match, and lets see what WWE does with The Demon King…Will we see a Demon King vs. Demon Kane ?????
Randy Orton Vs. Brock Lesnar : The whole match seemed off to me, there was no buildup for the match, there was no storyline to grab your attention with this one. And the weird ending with Brock busting open Orton, was it a work ?? or was it real??? The way everybody was acting in the ring and commentary it seemed that Brock broke script and went his own way…Time will tell what happens…..
Summerslam was a better show then it was promoted..If it was just 3 hours it would have been a tighter and more exciting show. Let’s see what happens on Raw tonight, WE will be LIVE at RAW at The Barclays Center, and we will have our RAW recap later tomorrow. Here are some of the highlights of Summerslam :
Well WWE and Roman Reigns are on their way on the road to Wrestlemania. Roman Reigns pinned Dean Ambrose in the main event of Fastlane, and now gets a shot a WWE champion HHH at Wrestlemania in April. The WWE is trying everything in their power to get Reigns over, and like last year it seems forced. You can’t just make a person a star, and have the fans go toward them anymore, you have to build up the character a bit, like the way WWE built up Daniel Bryan. I will be watching Mania as usual, as WWE always does a good job on the biggest stage in the world and with over 100,000 fans watching LIVE in Dallas. Hopefully, WWE can build up the HHH vs. Reigns match a bit more before we go to Mania, time will tell.
In other WWE news, rumors are hot that CM Punk will make his return to WWE in the near future. John Cena Tweeted a picture of Paul Newman which is the same picture that CM Punk uses as his picture on Twitter. Also WWE just included Punk in its legends category. Is WWE and CM Punk working on something together??? Will Punk come back at Mania and will he wrestle or just tease us….WWE likes to put out swerves like these that keeps the superfans guessing…..Only time will tell when or if we see CM Punk back inside a WWE ring.
One last word is on The Wyatt Family , and the WWE always burying them when they are in a feud. The Wyatts have really never won a match, from a feud and its getting tiring. The Wyatts are great characters and the WWE should have them win at least a few times, to keep the fans interest in them. If they keep jobbing to pretty much everybody on the roster, the fans are going to not care about The Wyatts anymore. Dumb move WWE, but hopefully WWE Raw will be good tomorrow night and WE will have a RAW recap right here on Superfanworld.com .
WWE announced that their annual summer extravaganza Summerslam will originate from The Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York in 2016 and 2017. This is going to be awesome, as Brooklyn and the area is perfect for a WWE weekend which will also include a WWE NXT show and a Monday Night Raw the night following Summerslam. I went to the 2015 addition of Summerslam, and I’m super excited to go back next year!!!!!
