What else is on? WWE has a lot of television time to film and there is no way around it. With five hours of top level television every single week, there is a lot to cover. Somehow they make it work, though a lot of that is due to having the same people appear multiple times during a night. That leaves a lot of people on the sidelines, but WWE has found a bit of a way around that.
WWE has posted a pair of videos to their YouTube page, showing things that took place during commercial breaks of Monday Night Raw. While one of them was from someone who made an appearance and wrestled a match on the show while the other did not make an appearance and has not in recent weeks. These are no indications of people receiving a push, as some people who have done this have still not gone anywhere.
First up is the one we’ve seen before. Check out Sami Zayn ripping on the live crowd:
And then, a little reunion. Check out an appearance from someone who hasn’t been on the show lately:
Opinion: I know these aren’t the most important things in the world but it’s cool to see WWE giving us a little bonus content. It’s not like these things mean anything in the long run, but it’s nice to have the option. At least WWE seems to know what doesn’t belong on the main shows, because this is the kind of stuff that would have just dragged the show down even more.
Which of these was better? Will Zayn ever get beyond what he is doing now? Let us know in the comments below.
