RAW Results (22 August 2016)

Finn Bálor relinquished the WWE Universal Championship

I’m not sure how to feel about this. Injuries happen all the time in pro wrestling but I have never been a fan of a championship being held up vacant due to an injury, especially at the beginning of a reign so this brought a single tear to my eye as I thought of how much of a big push he was receiving. 

Seth Rollins def. Sami Zayn to advance to next week’s Fatal 4-Way WWE Universe Championship Match

Is this really what Zayn has been reduced to?! 

I am glad that the championship wasn’t just handed to him, thank you for that WWE… but for Zayn to be made the jobber is totally unacceptable. Will this turn into another case of misused NXT alumni talent who went downhill on the main roster?

Kevin Owens def. Neville to advance to next week’s Fatal 4-Way WWE Universe Championship Match

Another one…

But at least this time its in an attempt to push another well-deserving wrestler but my problem is that Neville has been underused for quite some time and the Man That Gravity Forgot is somewhat becoming the Man That Creative Team Forgot. 

WWE Tag Team Champion Big E def. Karl Anderson


Where the hell does WWE plan to take The Club if they lose ALL. THE. GODDAMN. TIME?

Coming from NJPW, they are so not being paid their due respect.

Titus O’Neil called out Darren Young

Is there a pre-show for RAW?

Big Cass def. U.S. Champion via Count-Out to advance to next week’s Fatal 4-Way WWE Universe Championship Match

Erm… what are they doing?

What about Amore?

Bayley def. Dana Brooke

Fair enough. It’s a build up so… okay fine…

I shall let go.

Braun Strowman def. Johnny Knockout

Okay, how many local competitors are there for Strowman? And can none of them fight?! I get that it’s squash matches but… maybe we are pushing it a bit too far? Hopefully we get to see the fruits of all of this and it doesn’t just… flop.

The Shining Stars confronted The Dudley Boyz

Twenty years in the business…

And now, it’s done… but the Shining Stars just had to make a name for themselves from a falling tag team.

But The Shining Stars will need a lot more than some bullying of Dudley Boyz in order to get their stars shining. 

Roman Reigns def. Chris Jericho to advance to next week’s Fatal 4-Way WWE Universal Championship Match

Roman Reigns. Roman Reigns. ROMAN. REIGNS. 

The Roman Empire begins to rise once again? 

I don’t like the idea but…whatever.


Perhaps SmackDown Live will go bigger and better?

Serve their purpose as the land of opportunity?

We shall see tonight.

Check out my blog tomorrow to see the results and my thoughts on them. 🙂

    1. You’re most definitely welcome Nessa! 🙂
      There is a lot in store for this blog that you don’t want to miss out on so… 🙂


  1. I feel the exact same way about some of the unused talent from NXT. My opinion is that WWE takes some of the best talents from NXT and makes them fight in matches that ensure the intended person wins, the person who is not from NXT.

    My opinion is that the club should stay as unknown and as hated as they are because I do not like them. The Club should not be on the roster, but I can’t win every battle.

    There should only be a certain number of squash matches that Strowman can be allowed to compete in until we realise his strength, I think we passed that point a while ago.

    My opinion is that a team that doesn’t have a Wikipedia page should not be confronting a team who’s Wikipedia should have a “retired:2015” section. Classic case of “pick on someone your own size”.


    Thanks for the update, it was really helpful!
    Hope you enjoy the movie.
