WWE RAW was interesting this week, as it always is after WrestleMania events. Typically this RAW is filled with cool surprises and a wild crowd that will be very interesting to listen to. It is also the perfect time to debut stars, as they will usually cheer anyone coming out of WWE NXT. It is what they call a “mark” crowd, meaning the crowd knows everyone well across the WWE platform and will make sure you know their opinion is known. It is filled with people from across the world, and it can be a good debut crowd for a young star.
This crowd helped to start the build of Daniel Bryan that ended up being a catalyst for his big main event run. They even helped Fandango for a while. This year, WWE introduced four new WWE Superstars in Apollo Crews, Baron Corbin, and Enzo Amore/Colin Cassady. It was thought that all did a great job, but two stood out most behind the scenes. According to Daily Wrestling News, there were people praising Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady for their segment with The Dudley Boyz.
Some were calling it the best promo the show has seen in months, if not longer. The WWE Chairman himself liked it as well. Vince McMahon was said to have been pleased with how over they were with fans and employees, as well as their work itself. This is always a good thing for a new talent, as having Vince like you even for a time can be huge for your career.
Fans were upset that the two men never held the NXT Tag Team Titles, as they were together longer than any other group on the NXT roster and never held them. They were also seen as the most popular team in NXT for some time. However, it is said that Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady certainly have a bright future ahead of them on the main roster. With the impression they left on McMahon, there is a good shot that they end up going after the WWE Tag Team Titles before too long.
WWE also debuted the Vaudevillians on WWE SmackDown, which will end up showing tonight. It was claimed they were impressive in their debut as well. Aiden English and Simon Gotch were known as a fun tag team down in NXT and could very well be an interesting team to keep our eyes on for the future. However, the promo strength of Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady helps them out.
Enzo Amore is known as a walking catchphrase machine who can deliver a good promo on a bad day and a memorable on a good day. People are still buzzing from his promo on RAW this week, so it will be fun to see if he can continue to knock it out of the park promo wise each week.
There was a rumor last year that the two of them would come up to challenge The New Day for the WWE Tag Team Titles. WWE ended up delaying their main roster debut, but New Day still holds the WWE Tag Team gold. That means that once Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady get past The Dudley Boyz, they could very well challenge New Day for the tag gold.
Due to how terrific both teams are with promos, this rivalry could be fun to watch. The rivalry is easy money and will make great television for WWE. With that said, it seems almost too obvious that we will see them work together down the line. However, WWE does want to introduce us to them first. It would be ignorant to throw them right into the tag title hunt when they just arrived. That means we should not expect them to challenge for the titles until after WWE Payback.
