5 Ups And 8 Downs From Last Night's WWE Raw (September 10)
8. Remember The Revival
Last week, this column lodged a complaint about how The Revival was written out of their Raw Tag Team Championship match and never were heard from again.
But there was this warning in that column: “If there’s no mention of them demanding a title shot next week, then that is an automatic down right there.”
Raw happened, and here we are.
There was no mention of The Revival, other than the announcers noting that Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder were beaten up and had their title shot stolen. But The Revival did not show up this week to demand their title shot – that was handed out to Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose – or to seek revenge against Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre.
Maybe we should consider ourselves lucky that WWE didn’t have Dash and Dawson help Ziggler, McIntyre and Braun Strowman out against The Shield in a total logic gap.
Scott is a former journalist and longtime wrestling fan who was smart enough to abandon WCW during the Monday Night Wars the same time as the Radicalz. He fortunately became a fan in time for WrestleMania III and came back as a fan after a long high school hiatus before WM XIV. Monday nights in the Carlson household are reserved for viewing Raw -- for better or worse.
