The RAW Mid Card Division

Highlights of the Division

The Miz might be forming a faction of sorts with Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel. Both men have been criminally under-utilized and also were feuding with each other late last year. Remember that Bo attacked Axel late last year and they had their mini-fued on RAW before being shipped to pre-show purgatory of WWE Main-Event. The Intercontinental Champion will need to address how he squashed their issues and got them around to work for him.

Elias Samson could be on the verge of feuding with Finn Balor based on their stare-down and his backstage beatdown soon afterward. He was primed to further his rivalry with Dean Ambrose but it looks like the Lunatic Fringe might have his hands full with the Miz and his cronies. The Drifter has the perfect opportunity to demonstrate his skills on a world-class level to a former world champion like Balor. The last time both men met in the ring it was on NXT, you can say that Samson wasn’t treated as an equal to the Demon King. Maybe right now would be the perfect opportunity to show the world that the gap between the men has shrunk dramatically.

For Apollo Crews and Titus O’Neal, not quite sure if the pairing is officially a tag team or merely a business partnership. If the duo plan on heading to the tag team division, they might have the perfect road to capture the tag team championships. They did lose to the tag champs on RAW but that can be coughed up to inexperience as a team. The Titus Brand could pick up where Enzo and Big Cass left off as the second best babyface team in the division moving forward.

These are the rankings for the division this week.
