They had another idea. Wrestling is quite the unique form of entertainment as while it is based around the in-ring action, there are several other aspects that can be focused on as well. There might be a mixture of action, drama and even romance along with various comedic factors. That was almost the case in a recent segment but a rewrite took care of that possibility.
The final segment of last week’s Monday Night Raw featured Bobby Lashley vs. Theory in a pose down. According to Fightful Select, R-Truth was originally pitched to be part of the segment and several props were even brought to the venue for such an addition. However, R-Truth was never included or mentioned during the segment. There is no word on why WWE changed their minds.
Opinion: This is something that could have added a little bit to the match but for whatever reason, that isn’t what WWE did. There is a good chance that it was a timing issue, as there was only so much time left in the show when the pose down began. Having R-Truth there would have helped, but I’m not sure if they would have had time to get to the important part. It might be annoying, but that is the way things are at times.
What do you think of the original plan? How should the segment have gone? Let us know in the comments below.
