Neville & TJP vs. Austin Aries & Gentleman Jack Gallagher

Result: Neville & TJP defeated Austin Aries & Gentleman Jack Gallagher via pinfall


WWE tinkering with names is so weird. Rusev, Cesaro, and Neville all used to have first names. Big E used to have a last name. Charlotte Flair used to only have a first name, but now has a last name. And now TJP lost all but one letter of his last name. Why are these things done?

Speaking of “why are these things done,” why are we still devoting time on Raw to literally the same four cruiserweights without changing anything up? I feel like the only new cruiserweight we’ve seen on Raw lately was Dar tonight. Meanwhile, guys like Mustafa Ali, Ariya Daivari, Drew Gulak, Rich Swann, and so many more get random appearances on Main Event, or regular appearances on 205 Live. Can’t things be a bit more equitable?

Somewhere in the ring amidst the “CM Punk” chants, we were treated to the same basic match these four have put together multiple times over the past several weeks. King Neville comes out on top, thanks to a little dishonesty. TJP embraces the dark side a bit more every week. Aries comes close, but can’t quite get one over on Neville. And Gallagher insists on continuing to do the sickening headbutt.

I’m really hopeful that Aries finally wins the title at Extreme Rules just to get some fresh cruiserweight material on Raw every week.


A KENDO STICK ON A POLE MATCH? How did Vince Russo’s spirit inhabit the body of our great general manager?

Don’t Call It A Comeback

Fun fact: the last two standard tag team matches Golden Truth has had on Raw? Both losses to The Club. The dates? November 21 and December 26. It’s been a while since R-Truth and Goldust have had a straight up tag match, and it’s gotta be against the same guys they lost two in their last matches?
