I just finished watching RAW on my DVR a little bit ago, and I have to say that for the umpteenth time, WWE dropped the ball. Sure, we don’t know where all the new storylines with all the post-Draft, post-tragic-accident jumble, but some really good ones just slipped through their fingers.
I’ll keep this short. I don’t want to bore you with tons of small details, so as of Night of Champions, Mr. McMahon is out, his family is busy with him, RAW has no GM and both main belts are on Smackdown.
WWE chose to have CM Punk use his Money in the Bank to bring a belt back to RAW after Edge was softened up by Batista. While this may be ‘poetic justice’ considering how Edge has won the belt in the past, it’s also not CM Punk’s character. Instead, it should have been drawn out over the summer or even longer to help bolster ratings in this traditionally slow time of year.
Here’s what I would have done.
