John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt
It's no secret that I have loved the feud between Cena and Wyatt dating back to when it first started, but it officially jumped the shark for me at Extreme Rules. This match, along with their WrestleMania 30 clash, showed that they have little to no chemistry with each other in the ring.
Not only that, but the interference from Luke Harper and Erick Rowan here was overdone and tiresome. I expected interference, don't get me wrong, but not as much as we ended up getting. It made Wyatt look extremely weak, and even the finish was campy.
Yes, Wyatt ultimately emerged victorious, but at what cost? I know the feud will be continuing until Payback, but I personally have no desire in seeing a rematch between the two.
Kane chases Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella
As much as I enjoyed their Extreme Rules match and thought it was one of the better matches on the show, the angle they ran on Raw was pretty ridiculous. Everything involving masked Kane over the course of his career has felt like a horror movie, but the bad acting of Brie Bella combined with the dumb logic that Bryan would get out of the car to check on Kane only to drive away killed any interest I had left.
WWE is in a holding pattern with this feud, I understand that, but this storyline was a bit too campy for my liking.
3MB vs. Los Matadores
As previously stated, I loved the WeeLC match at Extreme Rules, but the Cinco de Mayo segment on Raw along with the six-man tag team match on SmackDown made me remember why I hated this feud to begin with. The matches are terrible and the segments are painful to watch. They clearly come off as filler, but you'd think WWE would come up with better ways to utilize these guys and not do the same match every week.
Santino Marella and Emma vs. Fandango and Layla
Do I really need to explain why this match is in this column? Along with 3MB vs. Los Matadores, it's the feud that will never end. The matches, while well wrestled, are pointless, and I cringe every time Emma pulls out her own version of the Cobra. She's far too talented to be put to waste by being paired up with Santino.
Also, what was so special about the kiss between Fandango and Layla? Was that really significant in any way?
Natalya and The Funkadactlys vs. Tamina Snuka, Aksana and Alicia Fox
It's nice to see storylines carry over from Total Divas to the main shows, but why should I care about a beef between Natalya and Cameron over a lost (that was eventually found) cat? Cameron is annoying to no end, and unless this leads to a heel turn from her, I couldn't care less what problems she has with Natalya.
Oh, and a match happened, and it was rather forgettable.
Camacho vs. Captain Comic
I love the Adam Rose persona, but is it really necessary for any of his party-goers to wrestle? I'm sorry, but like with Damien Sandow, I can't take anyone who wrestles in a cape seriously. This match dragged on far longer than it needed to, and I still don't know why I should be invested in Camacho at all. He's mediocre at best, and we know nothing about him.
Charlotte vs. Emma
I won't mind if Charlotte will be the one to win this NXT Women's Championship tournament, but she still has a long way to go in terms of her in-ring skills. She has certainly improved, but if not even Emma can get a decent match out of her, then there will be problems during her expected title run.
