5 Ups And 7 Downs From Last Night's WWE Raw (May 13)


7. Mojo Re-Debuts… To Silence

When WWE tries to reignite a forgotten wrestler by reinventing him or her, it can be a good thing that can spark a renaissance. Or it could be an utter disaster that’s quickly forgotten.

After an off-and-on series of backstage segments with him berating himself in the mirror, Mojo Rawley returned to action on Raw Monday night and toppled Apollo Crews (one of the Wild Card Rule superstars) in short order in a match that played to deafening silence.

It was eerie and embarrassing. Rawley didn’t even win cleanly, as Crews “tweaked” his knee on a flip, so Mojo took advantage of the injury, hit a three-point stance, KO punch and Alabama Slam for the unimpressive win.

If this is any indication, expect Mojo to disappear from your TV again unless and until Rob Gronkowski can join him in WWE.

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.
