So WrestleMania 33 is almost here. The card is shaping up and a lot of it just seems very underwhelming. Does anyone think Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg III will be any good? Does anyone care to see Randy Orton win another WWE Championship? Do they really have to do the giant battle royal every year? Does anyone still think The New Day's funny?
RAW was okay. It had its moments. SmackDown Live was a bit better due to a) the show-stealing performance by the phenomenally sadistic AJ Styles and b) it's an hour shorter, and less is more. Here are the five best and five worst moments this week in WWE.
5. WORST - Silence For The SmackDown Main Event
5. BEST - Bray Wyatt More Powerful Than Ever?
After Randy Orton burned the remains of Sister Abigail, we thought Bray Wyatt had lost his powers for good. But leave it to that weirdo to find her ashes and baptize himself by rubbing her remains all over his body to absorb her evilness. Gross.
4. WORST - Another Pointless Dolph Ziggler Segment
4. BEST - Seth Rollins is... Back?
Mick Foley was given the task by Stephanie McMahon to fire somebody by the end of RAW just because. So because Mick Foley didn't want to, Stephanie and Triple H horribly scolded him before socking him in the nuts. Where is WWE's HR department?
Seth Rollins eventually ran out for the save only for Triple H to get the upper hand once again and re-re-injure Seth's knee. This time, in storyline. At least, I hope so.
3. WORST - A WrestleMania Opportunity? Nah
Nia Jax is not happy about not being included in the RAW Women's Championship match at WrestleMania. So McMahon and Foley decide to give her an opportunity by putting her in a match with the the Champion Bayley. If she would win, they would consider adding her to the match. So what does Nia do? Instead of actually trying to reign supreme, she gets herself disqualified instead by beating the living hell out of Bayley.
3. BEST - 205 Live Main Event
2. WORST - Another WrestleMania Opportunity? Nah
2. BEST - Braun Strowman Kills Roman Reigns
1. WORST - Jetsons Jealousy
1. BEST - AJ Styles Snaps
Randy Orton commits arson and instead of going to jail, gets to main event WrestleMania. Make sense? AJ Styles doesn't think so either. After Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan forced Styles through hoops all for nothing, Styles finally snapped this past Tuesday by viciously beating up McMahon and smashing his head through a car window. Ouch.
We all knew it was coming. AJ Styles vs. Shane McMahon IS happening. As much as we could moan and groan at the predictability, they did a great job setting this up.
Until next week!
