I didn't have a 'Ball' watching Raw

Big Baller Brand meets Miz TV

There's plenty of buzz online as fans like myself play Tuesday morning booker when it comes to the previous night's Raw. The show this week was at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and early in the day, the announcement was made that the Ball family would be a part of the show. Admittedly, I'm not a sports fan and until I threw it in my Google machine (thanks, Conrad), I had no idea who these folks were.

I say that without meaning for it to sound disrespectful. Lonzo, LaVar and LaMelo were the guests on Miz TV. The segment made little sense to me, but as I said I don't follow sports and fully understand WWE likes to have celebrities on the show that will get mainstream coverage. The Balls are obviously well known in LA so I'm not hating on the celebrity guest appearance.

During the course of the segment, LaVar went a little crazy, taking off his shirt and running around the ring. I think it was Corey Graves who said it, the segment went off the rails. He was referencing Dean Ambrose's appearance, but in my 1-2-3 cents, it was also an acknowledgment of the youngest Ball who repeated a racial slur that made air.

I've been trying to keep things more positive on this blog, so I apologize for the negativity attached to this post. I just thought the Miz TV segment was a huge waste of time and didn't do anything to advance a storyline on Raw. Honestly, (and again I'm playing Tuesday morning booker), I would have just had Lonzo or LaVar serve as a special guest referee for the night. Let them come out, get a pop and perform a useful function. However, as stated in the open, the segment captured plenty of attention on social media and in some mainstream media circles, so in that regard, it's mission accomplished.
