Welcome to a Labor Day edition of RAW Recap with El Jefe. Hopefully the grill has cooled down the yard work is completed; if not I got you covered with my review and predictions of this holiday edition of Monday Night Raw.
The show kicked off with a flashback of last weeks confrontation between Roman Reigns and John Cena. Obviously with it announced that the WWE will try to limit the path crossing between Brock and Braun ahead of No Mercy the Cena/ Reigns feud will be front and center for weeks to come.
Welcome to another edition of the RAW Recap with El Jefe…Monday night was action packed from the get go and would be all about the push for the “No Mercy” Pay Per View (Sept. 24th). How would new rivalries be built and old storylines continue heading into the event coming in about 3-4 weeks?
Well folks we only have six days until the biggest party of the summer. WWE's pay per view SummerSlam is this Sundays, and it will be a joint brand show. You will have to follow @MillironMac for all the updates on Smackdown leading into this jammed packed show. The build on both sides is clear though; we may possibly see the two top titles switch hands. Tonight's installment of RAW was all about the final push to SummerSlam and it was a crazy show.
SummerSlam is just two weeks away and man do we have a lot of rivalries being built over the last couple weeks. Most of the matches are set, but several of the opponents still have to be determined. Next week marks the final week before the August 20th pay per view; so expect the RAW and Smackdown to continue building matches for the event. This will be one of the biggest events of the year outside of WrestleMania. So what storylines were made clearer for us on this edition of the RAW Recap?
Raw kicked off Monday night with a couple disappointments for me. First off I discovered Kurt Angle was from Pittsburgh so I don’t know if I can like him anymore. Secondly they made a Pittsburgh Penguins Stanley Cup Champs reference less then two minutes into the show. Being the consummate professional I am I will move past it and do my regularly scheduled RAW Recap. By Being the bigger man and recapping a episode of RAW hosted in ShitsPittsburgh; I expect lots of comments and likes on this post.
Monday Night Raw returned tonight with its focus towards building storylines ahead of SummerSlam. It was an action packed show and it appears SummerSlam is being built up to be a huge blockbuster. Will major titles change hands at the upcoming Pay Per View and will SummerSlam be able to live up to the hype that is being built around it?
The WWE had its universe of fans buzzing all week about what Kurt Angle’s mysterious announcement would be this week on Raw. It is no surprise that they would use the first two hours of the show to tease this announcement attempting to keep fans on the edge of their seats.
