10 Things From ‘WWE Raw,’ June 13th, 2016

7. Coach Backlund is terrifying.

With a protege like Darren Young, how can he go wrong? Bob Backlund has always put in fine work, from his championship run, to his comeback, to his decline into schizophrenia. We’ve also seen Backlund coach great wrestlers, legends like Kurt Angle, Mick Foley, and The Sultan. Backlund is a strange bird, a real life character who could have only come from wrestling.

Darren Young, meanwhile, is another top-notch talent who has been criminally under-utilized. His segments with Backlund aren’t doing as much for Young as they are for his coach, but they serve to remind the audience that a real talent is on his way back. Wacky antics aside, it will be good to see Darren Young again.

Next: Shane and Steph, together again. Still.
