The 16 time world champion kicked off Old School Raw. Out comes Randy Orton who talks about how he respects Flair. He wants the night to be about him and not the legends. He calls Flair overrated and out comes John Cena. Cena laughs at the fact that Orton called Flair overrated. Cena wants to fight, but Orton retreats. I feel like I am over Ric Flair. This segment did not do a thing for me. What was the point? It did not set up some sort of match or any more involvement for Flair. The guy can still cut a promo, but it was a waste of time in the grand scheme of things.
The guests of Roddy Piper's show was all three members of The Shield. Piper teased that if Roman Reigns beat Punk, wouldn't he be better than Rollins and Ambrose? He tries to tease Reigns being the better of the three, which was very intelligent. This is going to continue for a few weeks and maybe a month. Anyways, this was the best segment from a legend of the night. Piper will never use his edge on the microphone and does a wonderful job at progressing a storyline that he has NOTHING to do with. Reigns vs. Punk feels more interesting now because of this segment. I want to give props to Seth Rollins his mic work. He did a great job trying to egg Piper on.
I find it hilarious that the worm still gets a bigger reaction than most of the WWE roster. What does that say? They put on a decent match against 3MB and show that they can still go (somewhat). This was a good nostalgia act.
