This past week on RAW left fans of "old-time" wrestling groaning as the long talked-about angle involving Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins didn't take place. With WrestleMania really not that far down the road in Philadelphia, both Rollins and Rhodes are pretty deeply entrenched in stories.

Rollins is gearing up for a title defense against Drew McIntyre while Rhodes heads right for Roman Reigns and The Bloodline, looking to put the exclamation point on his great story. Former Head Writer Vince Russo tweeted that the current creative was not to his liking, citing "the follow-up on a very important part of [the] story." He was not alone in thinking this.

In the latest edition of RAW, Cody Rhodes was in a main event as he squared off Grayson Waller in a tough competition. In spite of the interference from Austin Theory, the man from the dark side of the ring managed to win so that he exhibited his domination inside a square circle.

However, things turned a little bit ugly after the match, as Paul Heyman appeared alongside three so-called "suspended NYPD police officers" who attacked Rhodes with full force.

And viewers were questioning where Seth Rollins was, who had cut a promo earlier in the night promising to be at ringside and acting as a proverbial shield for The Bloodline alongside Rhodes.

And he was going to take it out and make it stand out even further that night—through the "Grayson Waller Effect. And expressing his views during that segment with a podcast on Sportskeeda's Legion of RAW, Russo went even further with this comparison, relating it to his own time with the company.

As a matter of fact, he seemed to bemoan that this was an everyday state of affairs for WWE right about now. He pointed out how it was important that they deliver upon several narrative promises - even in terms of wrestling guidelines.

The storyline is making twists and turns as The Bloodline continues its relentless pursuits for Cody Rhodes. With increasingly rising obstacles before Rhodes, fans are awaiting how mesmerizing the story turns out to be placed on a safe course and eventually woven into its climax. So, stay tunned with WWE roads to WrestleMania unwind with fates of Cody Rhodes, Seth Rollins hanging in there.
