Things got real interesting on Monday night when Corey Graves told General Manager Kurt Angle that he had something that could damage Angle’s career.
Graves sold it perfectly at first, walking away from the announce table during a standard three shot including himself, Michael Cole and Booker T.
At first, people on social media appeared to be worried that there was a serious emergency Graves had to deal with. But we later saw the ring announcer backstage with Kurt Angle where he showed the Olympic Gold Medalist some sort of message calling Angle an “embarrassment.”
So what does this mean? At this point, it’s hard to guess, and that’s why it is so good. I want to know what is going to happen next. Could it be leading to a possible in-ring feud between Angle and another superstar? It’s very possible and that’s what is so exciting.
The Best of the Rest:
Who keeps attacking Enzo Amore? Two weeks straight now the smack-talker sky-walker has been found knocked out backstage. This week, Big Cass pushed for answers, but is it the 7-footer who laid out the beating?
Speculation is running wild that Cass is the man who took out Enzo but I don’t think that’s the right move. The two are still hot and way over with the crowds. They are also one of the top merchandise sellers. If WWE splits them up, they are leaving a lot of money on the table, and I don’t think Enzo has a future as a singles star. However, I wouldn’t mind seeing Cass become a singles wrestler with Enzo accompanying him ringside.
Somoa Joe stole a victory in his triple threat match against Bray Wyatt and Finn Balor. All three men looked very strong during the match, and the finish was well booked, protecting all three. However, based on WWE logic, a Joe win on Monday means he is likely not going over on Sunday in the number one contender match at Extreme Rules.
The same can be said for Roman Reigns who beat Seth Rollins in the main event. The two have excellent chemistry and can put on a hell of match. Based on the go home show, I think Rollins and Balor are the two favorites to become the number one contender for Brock Lesnar’s Universal Championship.
And let’s not forget one of the worst segments in WWE history: Alexa Bliss taking a look at the life of Bayley. It was painful to watch and Booker T even said so himself during the promo. Bliss is one of the best WWE has to offer on the mic but this material she was given was so bad not even she could save it.
Bayley eventually came running out but it didn’t get any better. The whole thing dragged on way too long and took the crowd out of it completely. I get that they are trying to make people feel bad for Bayley, but that doesn’t make it the right thing to do. She is losing momentum at an incredible pace and I don’t see her winning the championship back on Sunday.
