The JKWrestling WWE Raw Review October 28th 2013
By Joseph Wade
WWE Hell In A Cell was over and Raw looked all but set to catapult new stories and feuds in to Survivor Series on November 24th and, ultimately, Wrestlemania season. Instead, the ‘E’ delivered a ‘more of the same’ episode with a few twists to keep the show from bombing. In my opinion, they missed a step.
The opening segment was red hot, no question about it. First, John Cena took to the ring to celebrate his title win at Hell In A Cell. He’s back and there’s no denying that he adds interest to the World Heavyweight Title picture and the upper mid-card. It was interesting to see him mention Randy Orton’s upcoming title celebration and somewhat openly criticise the new WWE Champion but the real story came when Mr. Money in the Bank – Damien Sandow – entered the arena. Sandow had heat and his promo about cashing in on Cena carried some extra punch in comparison to his usual ‘I am better than you’ promos. Good job too because the ‘savior of the masses’ transformed his promo in to a beatdown of Cena, focussing on the arm. Outside of the ring he threw Cena in to the ring steps and the hit Cenas arm with a steel chair as it layed upon the same steps. Sandow was vicious and it was good to see. To me, he’s currently transforming from the Hunter Hearst Helmsley days of his (rather similar) gimmick to the Triple H days and I have nothing but positives to say about that. What was even better to see was that Sandow wanted to cash in, and he did.
