TRIU Monday Night RAW Review (8/5/13)…

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               This weeks RAW added a lot to the SummerSlam lineup. Starting with intrigue that leaves me believing that Christian could be our next WHC and that they are going to split up Del Rio and Ricardo and I think that’s a good thing for now. For some reason its seems like they are trying to bring back that Female team that tortures the other Diva’s in the locker room. But wait I thought that they already had that in the Bella Twins. But hey who am I to judge. The makeover of Daniel Bryan really didn’t impress me but the chemistry between Bryan and Vince was something to watch. The 6 Man Tag Main Event was fun to watch but the ending left you confused going into the final RAW before the “Biggest Event of the Summer”. And that’s exactly where you should be…
