WRESTLING RECAP: Playtime Williams breaks down WWE Raw from 10/05/15

( - The Night of Champions (NOC) Pay Per View (PPV) was a 2 weeks ago, and there is still fallout from it. Yet, time for the new PPV, which happens to be Hell in A Cell (HIAC). This is after having a PPV shown exclusively on the WWE Network that was at Madison Square Garden (MSG) Saturday.  I was expecting an average show this time around but was surprised that this was a pretty decent showing.

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:

AirDate: Monday, October 05, 2015
