Sharing my thoughts, opinion, and historical facts on everything WWE both past and present
Back to Blog
There is no doubting that the few weeks of Raw have been hard to watch with the company really over complicating everything from week to week. It is nuts to me that the WWE has seemingly struggled so much since Survivor Series to put together a show worth watching. I was one of the fans that believed that Ambrose desperately needed to turn heel and though I don't think anyone would've expected things to go the way they have so far. I feel like a feud between Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose with the roles reversed should've been able to carry the load for the WWE with so many names on the injured reserved at the moment. However, things haven't gone that way so far and I for one think the first time around was a lot better then this time even so early on.
All that aside though I finally wanted to touch on something positive that I could takeaway from this weeks edition of Raw. The best thing to takeaway from this show is the company finally taking steps to build for the future. Coming out of the show it seems clear that the WWE has big plans for Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre going into 2019. Now part of this might be based on the unfortunate side effects of Roman's illness, but either way that doesn't change how deserving both these men are of their positions.
Since his return to the WWE's main roster it is clear that some management in WWE love Drew McIntyre and see a very bright future for the former "Chosen One." Rollins has had an up and down run as a good guy, but has seemingly found his footing on the good side of the roster and could become the top baby face in the company. In my opinion nobody has done more to help the Intercontinental Championship then The Miz, but after this year it is clear that Seth Rollins has done just as much to help the IC Title as the "A-Lister" has and that speaks to the talent Rollins has and how well the company has booked him.
Overall I think as we head toward 2019 and another Wrestlemania season it seems to me that on the heel side Drew McIntyre is number one and on the baby face side their is no doubt that Seth Rollins has taken the top spot in that regard. As far as what we can expect for the remainder of the year that remains to be seen, but if this is any indication maybe things have started to turn around for the Monday Night brand, I mean things couldn't have gotten much worse.
