8 Ups And 8 Downs From Last Night's WWE Raw (Nov 30)


8. Why Are They Fighting Again?

Someone needs to explain why, after beating Dolph Ziggler cleanly in less than 10 minutes at Survivor Series, did Tyler Breeze feel the need to face Ziggler again? That€™s not to say that another match between them isn€™t okay, just that doing it again without any reason just looks foolish. Had there been at least something €“ anything €“ from either man to set this match up, it would€™ve made sense. Dolph could have pointed out that Breeze took the pinfall in the Intercontinental Championship #1 contender€™s match on Smackdown (or that Breeze broke up Dolph€™s pinfall on Dean Ambrose), or Tyler could have noted that he knocked Ziggler out in the same match. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nA1FRj7nPs This is an example where even a short inset promo (now that WWE periodically uses them again) would have made perfect sense and cleared up why we got a Survivor Series rematch after a noncontroversial conclusion.

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.
