6 Ups And 5 Downs From Last Night's WWE Raw (Jan 1)

1. Rollins As Grizzled Veteran

Remember when Seth Rollins was the hotheaded wrestler who thought with his emotions instead of his brain?

That made the opening segment even more amusing, as Rollins schooled Jason Jordan on being “so self-absorbed” and not thinking of his tag partner. The Architect’s put-downs (Jordan was “puffing [his] chest out” for his dad) were great at showing how he doesn’t entirely trust his partner and thinks that his ego will be their downfall as a team.

Even afterward, as Jordan celebrated his victory, Rollins looked at him as if he was a little put off by it all. It was a good job of showing that division between the two without WWE’s usual sledgehammer of plot beating it into us.
