What are your thoughts on the return of Chris Jericho on last night’s Raw Supershow?
Chris Jericho’s return to WWE under the cryptic videos on last night’s Raw Supershow was hardly a surprise. He was heavily rumored to be behind the videos and while there was talk about using The Undertaker as a backup plan, I never received word on any other name. With that being said, it appeared the company wanted to get heat on Jericho with the eccentric/silent return. However, that isn’t always the case as The Undertaker returned under cryptic videos last year and didn’t say anything when he confronted Triple H for the first time. It’s almost like the WWE protocol – promote a return under cryptic videos and have the worker return as a mute. The huge pop Jericho got when he came out was unavoidable so expect to see Jericho 2012 built on TV going forward. As for my thoughts on the segment, I felt it was a letdown but if WWE wants to push Jericho as a heel that may have been what they were going for.
Why did Brodus Clay not debut on Raw SuperShow again this week?
Brodus Clay was bumped off Raw Supershow again last night. At this point I don’t even know if it’s backstage heat, a running joke or all part of an angle. I will say I’ve become indifferent about Clay and will remain as such until he actually shows up and gives me a reason to feel otherwise.
Do you think that Dolph Ziggler’s character is lame and outdated?
No, Dolph Ziggler is a perfect heel that has a rocket pack strapped to him. He’s getting one heck of an opportunity in a program with CM Punk and regardless of the outcome, getting a WWE Championship match at Royal Rumble is a big deal for a worker not yet established as a main eventer.
What do you make of the booking of Daniel Bryan on last night’s Raw Supershow?
The good news is he went over Cody Rhodes, the bad news is he certainly didn’t “feel” like the World Heavyweight Champion. The first hour of last night’s Raw Supershow was particularly weak and I felt the quick finish to a champion vs. champion match was as underwhelming as it gets.
