The RAW Mid Card Division

Highlights of the Division

The Miz successfully defended his Intercontinental Championship against Heath Slater and should be favored to retain the title this Sunday. He formed an interesting faction with Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel which will be key to keeping the championship in the long run. His analysis of Dean Ambrose was spot on that comedy persona lacks focus and that he has lost his edge the past few years. Ambrose should re-focus on being less like a comedian and more like the former WWE Champion after Great Balls of Fire. 

The match is set at Great Balls of Fire between Enzo Amore and Big Cass. Enzo might have cut the best promo of his career but he’ll be only a stepping stone for the emerging Big Cass. Look for the 7 footer to score a convincing win this Sunday but it might look like this rivalry might continue afterward. It was nearly a month of conspiracy just to figure out that Cass was attacking Enzo, these next few weeks are key to solidify the big man as a true contender in the mid card division.

The feud between Goldust and R-Truth is picking up steam but it is surprising that they don’t have a scheduled match at Great Balls of Fire. It might look like it’s the last push that Goldust will ever get on RAW so the WWE will need to be delicate moving forward. The former Intercontinental Champion should be positioned to be a contender of this division after his feud with R-Truth concludes.

These are the rankings for the division this week.
