Not much cooking in the 24/7 title scene (which now doubles as an Old Spice commercial) this week. The spot from last night’s Raw is my least favorite since the Joe Average angle began last month at Fastlane.
Still, Rik Bugez beating up ninjas with one hand while declaring he’s the perfect combination of man and panther - “manther!” - is pretty fun. And seeing as Mr. Average has not only agreed to be trained in the way of the Night Panther, he’s also donned the prophesied mask, well... the numbers don’t lie, and they spell disaster for R-Truth at WrestleMania 37.
Let’s just hope that if they do blow this angle off this weekend in Tampa, there’s more ninja referee and R-Truth disguised as household objects. Otherwise, what are we even doing here?
