I am really liking the current Wyatt Family and The New Day feud. Amidst the debut of Enzo and Cass, The Vaudevillians, Gallows and Anderson, and The Shining Stars (lol) I started to think that The Wyatt Family were out of the title picture. But since interrupting a New Day promo last week, this no longer looks to be the case.
These are two of the best factions post-Shield. Having them go at each other can only possibly work out well. Both cut entertaining and passionate promos (even if I do not always understand what Bray Wyatt is on about…) and what is this brainwashing/fear story with Xavier Woods about? Hard to say, but I care enough to want to know what happens next.
Could this spell the end of The New Day? If, so, it should come about in a story like this—something that forces a split without having them turn on one another, and leaves the door open for a reunion somewhere down the line akin to DX.
Also, which duo would take the titles? If Luke Harper comes back in time, it should be he and Erick Rowan, but Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman would be a terrifying combination to.
Either way, this is an interesting story, and I cannot wait for it to unfold.
When Apollo Crews debuted after WrestleMania 32, though I was thoroughly impressed, I did express concerns that WWE may not have had a proper reason for his being there.
As of Monday Night Raw, I am starting to think that I may not have been far wrong. Currently stuck in a feud with Sheamus that basically revolves around the "I'm old and you're new" idea, I doubt that anyone is awaiting the inevitable 4th or 5th rematch come Battleground. Like the Dolph Ziggler and Baron Corbin feud, this is going on too long with no good reason to sustain it.
Want to keep a rivalry elongated and the crowd engaged? Absence makes the heart grow fonder. I cite Seth and his former-Shield brethren, or Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn as examples of this.
Avoid always having them directly face each other at every given moment, and it will give us something to look forward to come the pay-per-view.
So there you have it, my two choices for the week. What do YOU think are the Cheap Pop and Cheap Heat this week in professional wrestling? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
