MANIA MADNESS – ASSASSIN V ARCHITECH
TALE OF THE TAPE
Before you speak you seek to have an informed opinion and understanding of how the story developed. With out all the pieces, the game just wouldn’t be the same. You watch The Tale of the Tape and decide for yourself if the powers that be on RAW know how to tell a story.

THE BACK STORY
The rivalry between Seth Rollins and Triple H really began to brew in August of 2016 during a fatal 4 way match on RAW to determine who would wear the Universal Championship after Finn Balor relinquished it the night after SummerSlam.
The tale of the tape with help to assemble the timeline and sidetracks that have brought us to this point. Triple H will face Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 33 in a non-sanctioned bout.
For anyone out that state that RAW cannot write a good storyline, I suggest you need to study the storytelling that is The Assassin v. The Architect
THE TAKE AWAY
A lot of you like to harp on how much better SmackDown Live is compared to RAW. We want to complain about 3 hours of mind numbing production, storylines with no logical reason, that has little or no value in the wrestling market.
I believe this is due to the 15 minute time span of most television viewers today. No one looks at the bigger picture. Where does the road begin and how do we get to it’s end? No one wants to wait while the road twists and turns and they miss the beauty of the ride. This is the case with this match.
Rollins and Triple H are both masters in and out of the ring. The story that has unfolded between the two can only end with both men looking better for the wear.
I don’t feel Triple H is out to make Seth look bad in the ring, and a clean win for Seth would make him the true Top Face of the WWE. Both RAW and SmackDown Live.
Having an unsanctioned match at WrestleMania is not something I can remember the WWE ever doing in the past, if I am mistaken, please let me know. This would then be a milestone match in Orlando. Done properly this match could be a contender for match of the night.
I enjoy a slow built over time. It adds depth and character to the overall story.
