As many of you have already noticed, the open invitational story line with John Cena has now become of the most entertaining things on Monday Night Raw. Apparently, we can thank Triple H for that. He is said to be the one that has been pushing for various angles that have pleased the audience. In order to push NXT, he convinced Vince McMahon to let him use Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens in the segments with Cena.

While talking about the abilities of Adrian Neville, JBL stated that Owen Hart was a high flying but not anything like this. Innocently, Booker T added to that by stating that Hart did not defy gravity, which is a term used frequently for Neville. That drew the ire of fans, who immediate took to social media to bash Booker, who ended up issuing an apology. WWE decided to take it a step further by removing the comments on the replay of Monday Night Raw.

However, they have decided to hold off for the time being because they did not want to take attention away from Adrian Neville, who recently made his debut on Monday Night Raw. One of the stipulations of signing Balor was that he would not be stuck in NXT for too long of a period.
