Can we call that a change for the better? Things are changing in a hurry on Monday Night Raw and it’s hard to call things boring. One of the biggest stories going on is Seth Rollins building up his army to fight against almost everyone else on the show. There are some wrestlers fighting back against him, but there might be a change in the lineup challenging Rollins.
There have been a lot of wrestlers getting a fresh push on Monday Night Raw at the moment and that has been a good thing for everyone involved. In this case, that includes Aleister Black and Buddy Murphy. While Black got the better of the three matches so far, it was Murphy who went on to pick up some silver as he and Rollins won the Raw Tag Team Titles this week. It turns out that we might be in for a bit of a flashback.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, plans may have changed in the story. The original plans called for Rey Mysterio to join in the fight against Rollins along with Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe once his feud with Andrade was finished. Now that Murphy has joined Rollins and the AOP, there is a chance that Black could be added as a fourth man to fight against Rollins and company. It is not clear what this means for the Viking Raiders, who joined forces with Owens and Samoa Joe on this week’s Monday Night Raw.
It’s been a long road. Check out Black vs. Murphy and Murphy and Rollins winning the Tag Team Titles:
Opinion: I’m not sure what the viking Raiders are going to do but it’s nice to see Black getting somewhere. One thing that WWE has been needing to do is create some new stars and the best way to do that is have them win matches and get put into big angles. That is what WWE seems to be doing now and under the right circumstances, we could be seeing some very bright stars getting their chance.
Which of the new stars will have the best future? Who should join either side in the fight? Let us know in the comments below.
