Rumors are floating around that WWE officials are not pleased with the debut of The Ascension on Monday Night Raw this week. The belief is that the entire segment fell a bit flat, despite management pairing them up with the popular duo of The Miz and Damien Sandow. Viktor and Konnor showed a lot of enthusiasm and energy, but the audience simply did not connect with their gimmick. Their push could be greatly affected by the first impression they gave.

When the New Day made their debut, WWE reportedly was going to give them a pretty big push, as the tag team division is badly in need of new blood. There were even talks that Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston were going to be carrying championship gold not too long after they showed up together on the scene. Those plans were put on hold because of the rising popularity of Damien Sandow and Miz, whom they now want to keep the belts on.
