I don't mind them giving someone unexpected a push, but when that person has won 2 tv matches since August, how can you believe they have a chance of winning?

You can accuse them of cynical pandering though...

Nar, they would be pandering more if the Great Khili came back

Its not full pandering when "THE HERO OF YOUR COUNTRY" is actually a heel

Maybe they think not being a man so clumsy he's accidentally killed an opponent at one point, who can talk in comprehensible sentences and doesn't look like something from Game of Thrones would be more appealing?

Agreed about Orton. Can never understand what they are doing with him. Obviously Bray needs a push but they killed any heat he had when Orton won the title. Now Bray's family have all split up, including the black sheep, you have to wonder what they are doing with him long term. Marketed properly he could be the Undertaker's replacement.

His should of been Takers last match

He wins by using takers moves
Lights go out
DONG!!
Come back on
He has on Takers hat and coat

HE BECOMES (A slightly rounder) UNDERTAKER!!

Starts winning matches, thorwing lighting and such, hes already good at promos and being a creepy bastard

But no, the WWE dont have a passion for what could be great, they would rather have s**t

Sounds like a terrible idea to be honest, you could never pass a gimmick that iconic on to someone else and expect the fans to buy it

I was hoping House of Horrors would be mid 90's WCW comedy bad, instead it was just plain bad. So Randy gets stuck under the fridge of doom, Bray drives off in the middle of the night despite the PPV being in the early evening, but Randy is somehow already at the arena. Perhaps he used that self driving tractor?

Best thing about that is how Randy appeared to have had time to stop off for a shave before getting to the arena and still made it before Bray?

The house is up for sale if anyone is interested, unclear if the decor will come with it

Still, yesterday's Raw was actually rather good, especially Alexa's promo and the triple threat main event

The triple threat was a great match. Balor and Seth work very well together. The result leaves the way clear for them to aim for the main title as well.
