Finally there was a reason to watch WWE again because Dean Ambrose finally won a belt fair and square without having to steal it. Dean Ambrose is now the Intercontinental Champion and these are my thoughts about it. Expect a few exciting words, also because of something that took place on the RAW show that followed TLC.
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.
On the last RAW before WrestleMania the last statements were set and WWE tried to make sure that predictions are still hard to make. But the best possible hype for the show was certainly created by Brock Lesnar one day after RAW because with that in mind I have to rethink my predictions.
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?
