Why are the WWE burying their top 2 heels on Raw?

Postby Messiah » May 07, '18, 10:55 pm

When the superstar shake-up happened, most people agreed SmackDown got the better end of the bargain. The main reason being they simply have a far more diverse roster, especially when it comes to the heel/face ratio.

The top heels on Raw are Zayn and Owens. So why is it that since being on Raw, all they have done is get whooped on by Strowman and Lashley and lose every single match they have had (usually in convincingly fashion)? Both Owens and Zayn lost in MITB qualifiers too. Seriously, what the fuck?

The short answer to that is because one of them won't be a top heel on RAW much longer. They are setting up the split by creating tension through the losing. Eventually Owens will attack Zayn and lead to another feud between the two.

They've been teasing dissent between the two almost since they got together though. They've also been teasing a split between Bayley and Sasha for at least six months. So don't get your hopes up that one of them is turning face soon. I wouldn't be so sure.

It's ridiculous what they're doing with Zayn and Owens. They're really over, despite being booked mostly quite poorly on the main roster. They're talented. They could both be top guys.

I wish both guys could be moved back to Smackdown. As it is, they're two of the only reasons to watch Raw. And if they keep being underused then they're really not worth watching there either.
