WWE’s new RAW Underground segment generated a fair amount of buzz. Plenty of people are talking about it including John Cena who said it was a great opportunity for Superstars.
Talk ‘N Shop A Mania is also going to parody the RAW Underground concept in their sequel pay-per-view. Seth Rollins saw the segment, but he’s holding out his opinion until later.
While speaking with Gorilla Position podcast, Seth Rollins stated that it’s too early to judge RAW Underground. It’s new and fresh. It could end up being amazing, but it could also be ridiculous in the worst way possible.
“Hey man, it’s outside the box. Our audience is different. They are begging for something different all the time, something new, something fresh. I think my verdict on it is TBD. Let’s see what happens. It could end up being ridiculous in a bad way or it could end up being ridiculous in a good way. Obviously the first week got people’s attention. We jumped up a little bit in our viewership which is great, I had no idea what to expect when I saw it on the sheet. When I watched it back, I was not entirely offended by it, especially that it is a brand new idea in its infancy. Obviously they will make adjustments to it and figure it out along the way. I’m open to seeing what it becomes as time goes on.”
Fans had differing opinions about the RAW Underground segment. Some people loved it, but others had differing opinions. Shane McMahon was also excited to plug next week’s segment already. This could be the start of a new chapter in WWE history, or it might be a time the company will eventually want fans to forget.
