Here’s what JR Had to say at JRsbarbq.com:
It seemed to me that Monday Night Raw was represented with a somewhat stronger in ring presentation in Seattle. I can see where many fans are seemingly becoming numb to the volume of rapid fire PPV events with so many coming over a short length of time.
Thought Punk vs. Bourne might have been the best in ring presentation of the show. That or the Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan bout. Both matches stood out to me and all four participants are guys that I could see being much more viable.
The Nexus storyline has been one of the better ones in the WWE in a long while. Now as it maturates and moves forward guys like Justin Gabriel, who had a nice bout with Orton Monday Night, needs to become known for more than his dynamic 450 Splash. Same for Otunga and Slater. What are their lasting claims to fame going to be? Now is a pivotal time for these members of NXT to begin to erase the prominent ‘side kick’ logo that’s figuratively stamped on their foreheads and either take a more impactful role with NXT leader Wade Barrett or begin to subtly move away from Barrett’s reign.
Why is it exactly that MNR and SDown have such a fierce rivalry? What’s at stake other than ‘Bragging Rights?’ Has SD been bragging about their tag team victory since last year’s PPV? Would it be more viable if something tangible was at stake to the winning team in the Raw vs. Smackdown Tag Bout on the October 24 PPV that emanates from Minneapolis?
