Not a long time ago I’ve said that I would stop writing these WWE reviews. Dean Ambrose’s promos for the Intercontinental Championship made me change my mind. But now I’m ending this for good. It was a slow process of being disappointed and then not caring anymore. So this is my final say on WWE and all around WrestleMania.
I’m back again. Dean Ambrose is made strong again. And Wade Barrett is made strong again. But still Daniel Bryan will get the IC title at WrestleMania. And still WWE tries in quite desperate and ridiculous ways to make Roman Reigns popular. All of this you can read in my latest edition of RAW.
I seriously wasn’t really in the mood to write anything about WWE shows this week. But I have somehow watched the whole RAW episode – mainly because I’ve done a comparing survey with NXT of how much wrestling actually is in WWE shows – and this makes me write this summary of all past three WWE shows of this week. Plus, the very infamous subject that happened, too.
If WWE meant their treatment of the Intercontinental title as a persiflage of their own recent bookings of the very title, then well done so far. But we will only really know when WrestleMania 31 is done and dusted. Until then I think it was just another stupid booking to make Dean Ambrose look ridiculous. And this way it wasn’t even funny – and kinda racist.
Dean Ambrose having stolen the Intercontinental championship belt from Wade Barrett on FastLane could have been the upbeat to a really fun chase between these two, culminating in a great one-on-one match at WrestleMania. But naturally the WWE had other plans. Or do they actually have a plan?
WWE hypes and teases Dean Ambrose as the new Intercontinental champion in the pre-show to FastLane just to make him lose again because of his temper. This has become an annoying pattern. And the fun part of him stealing the belt from Wade Barrett doesn’t make up for the foul booking.
