ScreenGurus Shaun explores how WWE's poor booking of The New Day has all but suffocated Monday Night Raw's Tag-Team Division.
Can't agree more. The New Day have over staid their welcome by quite a bit. Honestly, RAW has exemplified what is wrong with WWE while Smackdown has shown just how stagnant WWE has become.
Yeah hate how The New Day beat The Club twice in a row, thank god there's a Smackdown Tag Team championship so The New Day can't monopolize the tag team scene sadly The Club is on RAW and not Smackdown so yeah they'll be the casualties of this
The Club could easily be the biggest heel tag-team in the company - but WWE refuse to let them have their moment.
I think they're still mad the Bullet Club isn't something they made and they're taking it out on the Club since they were members of the Bullet club faction.
WWE IS petty like that. The only reason they didn't do it to AJ Styles is because he has that Daniel Bryan/ CM Punk potential and they know fans will have a MEGA FIT if they try to bury him.
The fcuk are they wearing?
There is a reason for it. I hate to say it, but I think the New Day's holding onto the gold is about getting rid of old legacies. For example, Demolition had the belts for 470+ days. I think the WWE want New Day to break that.
Even more so because Demolition has a lawsuit out against the WWE.
It's similar to how the WWE let Nikki Bella break AJ Lee's Diva's reign. Despite the fact that Nikki hardly EVER even defended the belt.
Long story short, if you're on the outs with the WWE, they will do anything to break a wrestler's legacy from their history.
Agree entirely with you.
And half of the AJ thing was spite over Punk.
wrestling is pure garbage now...terrible
It's been awful since it was WWE(2002)
On YouTube someone recently has been posting episodes of Raw and SmackDown from the year 2000.
Man if you want your wrestling fix, look to the classic.
Smackdown's REALLY good right now. The brand split has help it to escape the awfulness of Raw.
If you get the Network you can watch Raw all the way back to 1993
Are there any other tag team on Raw other than New Day, The Club, and Enzo and Cass?
That's a really good question.
To my immediate mind, only Sheamus/Cesaro come to mind
The problem is they don't remotely try to focus on the tag division outside of the New Day.
It's one of the many reasons Smackdown has become the better of the two shows by far.
Started watching all the WWF programming on the network from 1997 (Raw,Smackdown, PPV's), I'm in 2001 right now and holly crap the WWE right now is unwatchable compared to 2001 and im in the Invasion storyline!
To be honest, the moment WCW and ECW were bought by WWE (WWF at the time) we all knew the industry would turn to crap.
Ask any retired wrestler or even the not-so retired ones and they'll tell you that. I just hate that anyone still under their employ have to constantly say "nice" things about the WWE rather than what they really feel.
Would be interesting to see if WWE could actively turn them heel again, or make them more of a tweener team.
