-Ross on John Cena on WWE Raw: "I wasn't overwhelmed with how John Cena was booked on Raw as I would have been in favor of leaving him off TV another week or doing a vignette from Cena's home where he could express himself about 'Do I have it in me to beat a healthy Brock Lesnar?'"
Powell's POV: Viewers who didn't see SummerSlam heard about the beating that Cena took from Lesnar last week, then WWE followed up by making Cena look stronger than ever this week. Ugh. Even Superman looks weak in the presence of kryptonite.
-Ross on Bray Wyatt: "Bray Wyatt has been feeling main event special the past several weeks but not so much Monday night. Hopefully, he gets back on his roll next Monday. A potential Lesnar vs. Wyatt match down the road interests me if it could be presented in a compelling manner."
Powell's POV: I have to disagree with JR in this case. I can't remember the last time Wyatt looked main event. He's a main event talker and a main event talent, but the creative approach to the Wyatt Family has been lousy lately. Wyatt traded wins with Chris Jericho, and Luke Harper and Erick Rowan lose more often than they win these days. What happened?
-Ross on Roman Reigns: "If Reigns shines every week on Raw and rarely has to fight his way out of jeopardy WWE could be facing issues with fan backlash down the road. It's easy to say that being in a 2 vs 1 handicap match is fighting out of jeopardy but the handicap match is so over used."
Powell's POV: Great point. Viewers want to go on a journey with Reigns as he climbs the ladder. It feels like he skips rungs when he is dominant in handicap matches. WWE should want Reigns vs. Seth Rollins to feel like a big singles showdown at some point, but it won't be if they offer us more displays like the one we saw with Reigns plowing through Rollins and a partner as they did last night.
