Enzo Amore (w/ Big Cass) vs. Luke Gallows (w/ Karl Anderson)

Result: Luke Gallows defeated Enzo Amore via pinfall

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

Ok, this match wasn’t bad. It wasn’t great, either, but it wasn’t bad. However, it suffers from the same old, three hours long Raw problem – it’s pointless.

Seriously, what was the point of this? Gallows and Anderson have been booked so terribly they have no heat to even get back. But here’s The Club orchestrating a sneak attack on Enzo and Cass before the match. Then Gallows picks up a singles victory over Enzo, because we have to maintain the illusion that The Club are some big bad team.

The worst part is that Gallows – the larger man on his team – beat Enzo – the smaller man on his team – relatively cleanly. Anderson tried to interfere, sure, but aside from a distraction he didn’t do anything during the match. This was basically a straight up match, and the big bad guy beat the scrappy little guy.

Eventually, something’s gotta give. Raw needs some fresh tag teams, because besides these two teams, the Hardys, and Sheasaro, it’s The Golden Truth and Slater & Rhyno. Woof.

The King and His Squire

When did Neville turn into a wise old man? He’s like the guy in a movie who tells the team to keep their eye on the prize, or something ridiculous like that.

Kudos to TJ Perkins for his nonverbal acting skills. Eyes like that usually follow an “AROOGA” sound as a cartoon wolf’s heart beats out of its chest.
