Watching that Joe/Angle/Roman/Brock/Heyman segment, it looks like it was from a different show. RAW is now 15 minutes of awesome and 3 hours of nothing making sense and whatever the hell Dean Ambrose is.
Kevin Kelly: "Mr. Austin, would you like to comment on Wade Keller's Take that endorsing the XFL hurts your anti-authority character?"
Steve Austin: "Oh shit, he actually said that? I thought the boys in the back were ribbing me!"
Kelly: "No, he really said that. Did they tell you the part about you sitting in the stands, looking all skeptical?"
Austin: "AHAHAHAHAHAHA. Yeah... oh man that was too much."
That segment was hot fire, one of the best of the year. Especially loved Lesnar grabbing the mic from Heyman and starting to go off. Especially especially Lesnar's reaction when Joe's music hit. Especially especially especially everything with Joe, who is untouchable right now.
We can only hope that this is going to set up a fatal four-way at Summerslam. Although what will probs happen is braun attachs Roman causing a DQ, meaning Roman wins then a Braun/Joe feud. Which I mean, Braun/Joe would be insane but I'd rather the fatal four way.
Reigns felt so out of place. He was there to remind people Joe thinks he sucks. Cass promo was pretty good too. The rest was there. Dean still hating Seth was great for the whole two hours it lasted. BTW are there any face tag teams on Raw besides the Hardys.

Speaking of things not making sense:
Now, mind you, I've watched very little WWE programming over the past several eons; so I don't have any handle, let alone a good handle, on what's been happening, who's in line for a push, etc. etc. etc. With all that said, it struck me as odd for Goldust to go over R Truth with such a clean finish Monday. Yes, the announcers tried to push a fatigue angle for R Truth; but, the match just seemed to be overly dominated by Goldust, being just this much shy of being an outright squash.
Anyway, for regular viewers, perhaps it all makes sense and fits in with the current story lines. But as someone tuning in for the first time in a long time, it didn't make much sense to me.
I actually liked what they're doing with Seth "I don't actually want to help my old friend Dean, it's not like I like him or anything" Rollins. Trying to make amends with Ambrose in the most roundabout means possible, and Ambrose begrudgingly starting to buy into it despite still feeling burned by the old betrayal. Then, Bray Wyatt actually being the one to tell Seth that he can't turn back that clock and trying to be a better guy than he's been for the last two years is a joke. It's a lot more thorough than their storytelling usually is.
