Hello boys and girls, welcome back to Zack's Weekly "What!?" Moments! Be sure to comment with any moments you think I missed and follow me on Twitter @ZKrasney!
Shane McMahon is in control of Raw again because of “overwhelming support on social media.” Such a bold faced lie, we all know they’re not listening to fans because this is still a thing...
Sami Zayn vs. AJ Styles...bravo Shane.
Kevin Owens vs. Cesaro...bravo AGAIN Shane. I guess Zack Ryder’s 24 hours of push are done. I do love the idea of having a #1 Contender match for the Intercontinental Championship, though, because it really gives the title some legitimacy.
Kevin Owens love of JBL’s hat is really just spectacular.
Cesaro wins a match against a legitimate opponent! He is #1 Contender for the Intercontinental Championship, if he beats Miz it'll be his first time holding the IC Title!
I wanted to hate Dr. Phil, but he said what we’ve all been thinking about Charlotte. Good segment---oh wait did Phil end the segment by aggressively Woo-ing? Oh that’s a shame isn’t it.
Shane had Kevin Owens removed from the building and Kevin Owens STAYED GONE. I’m starting to think things might actually be different around here.
A tag team tournament for the #1 Contendership for the Tag Team Championships? Look at all the prestige we’re returning to championships!
Lucha Dragons and Dudley Boyz get entrances, then we cut to commercial. When we return from commercial break Kalisto is hurt outside the ring. Bubba insists that Kalisto is the legal man, but the match continues anyway.
D-Von thinking he’s the legal man goes for the pinfall. Bubba has to pull him off and pin Sin Cara himself, even though the ref was all ready to start counting the pin. Really, is Bubba the only one paying attention in these matches? Yes. The answer is yes.
Boos are still extremely heavy for Roman Reigns. But we’re not in bizarro world aka post-WrestleMania crowd anymore!? How will the announcers play it off now?
Roman delivers his “I’m not a good guy, I’m not a bad guy, I’m THE guy” line again because we all heard Vince scream “I love it!” so we’re likely to hear it over and over and over and over and probably see it on a T-Shirt soon.
Rusev thinks he’s better looking than Roman Reigns. He’s not, but with a fiance like Lana, who can blame him?
We get two vignettes for Primo and Epico. Really. TWO. I guess WWE figured they were so forgettable the first and second time they tagged together that no one would remember them? Also, is WWE getting paid on the side by Puerto Rico?
Ric Flair interfered in Charlotte’s championship match. That’s so unlike him!
Bullet Club! Bullet Club!! BULLET CLUB!!
Miz has very specific taste for M&Ms and water. No domestic water! I nearly spit my water, too, that segment was great! Miz and Maryse are gold! Love it!
Sami Zayn landed on the top of his head when reversing the Sunset Flip...I had to go back and rewatch just to see how he was even walking, let alone finishing the match! It looks like he tucked his chin enough and landed in the right spot so that it didn’t do any damage, thank God!
When Jericho talks about his actions on Smackdown a fan in the front row yelled, “No one was watching!” I can’t say I disagree with him.
Between the 4 men in the main event of Raw, there are 8 WWE Championship reigns. 2 for Del Rio, 3 for Sheamus, 3 for Reigns. (That’s not including World Heavyweight Championship reigns.) Bray Wyatt accounts for 0 of those reigns. In fact, Bray Wyatt has never held ANY championship in the WWE. And yet, Bray Wyatt was the best performer in that ring, bar none. You’d think Bray was the veteran in there based on how things went. It’s a bloody crime. Tweener Bray should beat tweener Roman for the championship. The crowd would go nuts.
A surprising number of names missing from Raw tonight again! Starting to wonder if they’re testing the waters for a brand split.
