WRESTLING RECAP: Playtime Williams breaks down WWE Raw from 09/28/15

( - The Night of Champions (NOC) Pay Per View (PPV) was a week ago, and there is still fallout from it. There is a major show being shown on the WWE Network exclusively Saturday, and momentum is needed for that event.  Did that happen with this show?  In my observation, not really.  This was the same heat and steam from the same 2 or so months.  Just an average show this time around.  Only the rehashing of Big Show VS Brock Lesnar feels relatively new.

Some things I still need to happen in the WWE Universe:

  1. Bring back the Cruiser Weight Division
  2. Make all the matches mean something to some sort of belt or rivalry.  
  3. Show more of the roster.  You guys recycle the same talent too much.
  4. You may wish to consider bringing the Diva's division full circle and have them with Tag Title belts, lightweight belts, etc. 
  5. The Tag Team Division is starting to look better than the singles division.  Get more people graduated from NXT and get that division showcased more. 

Here are the highlights of the show:
