6 Ups & 7 Downs From WWE Raw (April 19)


7. Does Anyone Care?

MVP Mace T-Bar

Oh the intrigue! Are Mace & T-Bar working in cahoots with MVP and the Hurt Business? WWE sure wants us to care about that mystery, but we aren’t biting.

MVP pleaded his case that the Hurt Business has just downsized a few weeks ago, so why would they suddenly ramp back up (a great point) with new members? But then Mace & T-Bar showed up to attack Drew McIntyre again. Later, during their match, MVP was watching the masked duo fight, as if he was scouting them.

But the intriguing angle of whether they were working for MVP was just such forced drama. As McIntyre pointed out, it really doesn’t matter, he’ll just batter them about regardless since they’re attacking him either way.

And really, that’s the main point.
