    Wallace was still hard at work.Moving to his left, shifting to his right,
    Wallace stood in front of the machine as it spit out footballs. Catching with
    two hands, then with his left hand and the right, Wallace worked at his craft
    Wednesday until finally -- as always -- he was the last man off the
    field.Wallace signed with Baltimore as a free agent in March looking to revive a
    career that stalled last year in Minnesota. Two weeks into the season, the move
    has worked for both the Ravens and the 30-year-old receiver.Baltimore (2-0) has
    scored three touchdowns, all of them by Wallace. He caught a 66-yarder in a 13-7
    win over Buffalo, then scored on passes of 7 and 17 yards to help the Ravens
    overcome a 20-point deficit and beat Cleveland 25-20.They arent calling him Mr.
    Touchdown in the locker room heading into this weeks game at the Jacksonville
    Jaguars, but Wallace certainly has received a hearty welcome from a team he
    despised when playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers.Mike has been everything we
    expected and hoped for, coach John Harbaugh said. He just works really
    hard.Wallace knows all too well that fame can be fleeting. He enjoyed four solid
    seasons with the Steelers, performed well in relative obscurity with Miami in
    2013 and 2014, then scored only two touchdowns last year with the Vikings.Hes
    already surpassed that in two starts with Baltimore, which is why Wallace
    attracted a crowd of reporters and cameramen at his locker on Wednesday.Ive seen
    the highs, Ive seen the lows, Ive seen how fast things can change on you, he
    said. So just like youre all sitting here talking to me, I dont buy into none of
    this. Next week you could be gone.Thats been the pattern in the eight years
    since he starred at Mississippi.I came in third-round pick, not much. I got a
    lot of love once I started making plays, Wallace said. But you dont make a
    couple plays, it all turns around on you.Wallace has seven catches for 132
    yards. Every one of his receptions has produced a first down or a touchdown.
    Although quarterback Joe Flacco has a variety of targets, including tight end
    Dennis Pitta and Steve Smith, none of them have been more productive than
    Wallace.I know hes very confident and we want to keep him that way, Flacco said.
    We want to keep him juiced up and keep feeding him the ball. The more he
    continues to feel like that, the better its going to be for our team.During his
    days with the Steelers, Wallace and the Ravens had little love for each other.
    There were hard hits and trash-talking, boasts and taunts, leaving open the
    question of whether he could get along with his former enemy.Its football. You
    leave it on the field unless its too serious, he said. When I got here, I had no
    doubt it would be a great fit. I knew from afar it was a great organization. It
    was easy for me to come here and just go with the flow.---AP NFL website: and

    . With their top three point guards and Kobe Bryant all sidelined by injury, the
    Lakers signed Marshall out of the D-League on Friday before their home game
    against Minnesota. It was December 1997 when WWE chairman Vince McMahon ushered
    in a new era for Monday Night Raw -- an Attitude Era, if you will -- by
    declaring Raw as the cure for the common show in a memorable promo.While its
    unlikely in todays PG-era that WWE will announce a similar turn into a more
    adult-oriented product as it did nearly 20 years ago when competition with rival
    WCW was at its peak in the Monday Night Wars, Raw has found itself at a point of
    stagnancy in recent weeks.The WWEs flagship show has battled wild bouts of
    inconsistency in the seven?weeks since SummerSlam, effectively slipping to
    B-show status opposite in-house rival SmackDown Live in the court of public
    opinion.This weeks Raw wasnt groundbreaking by any means, nor will it stand out
    as being memorable for any one specific reason. But it was fast-paced and
    consistent just the same, with what might be called the cure for the common Raw
    proving to be a justifiably gratuitous use of its two most entertaining figures
    of late.WWE did well to build the majority of the episode around the budding
    (with teases toward potentially volatile) friendship between Universal champion
    Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho. The heel pairing has provided Raw with many of
    its top moments in recent weeks, from lengthy in-ring dialogue to quick-hitting
    backstage comedy and strong main event matches.Monday night was no different,
    with the duo making multiple appearances throughout the episode, building toward
    a main event match between Jericho and Seth Rollins. WWE did well to hold the
    attention of viewers by creating the stipulation that a victory by Jericho would
    add his name to the title match between Owens and Rollins at the Hell in a Cell
    pay-per-view on Oct. 30.In the end, Rollins proved victorious in an entertaining
    match, which kept the loosening threads of friendship between Owens and Jericho
    intact. But there was enough attention to detail in the storyline throughout --
    including Owens deciding against coming to Jerichos aide as the episode
    concluded -- to plant seeds for the future.Ultimately, thats all that viewers
    want: for the dots to connect and the storyline of each feud to progress at a
    steady rate. If anything, fans dont want to feel like their time invested -- and
    in this day and age for WWE, that involves upwards of 10 hours each week -- was
    spent in vain.Major events like surprise title changes or celebrity drop-ins can
    serve as rewards for fans who make Raw a cant-miss staple of their television
    week, but they should never become the foundation.This weeks Raw went back to
    the basics of building storylines organically while sprinkling in the extra
    flavor of teases toward potential turns. It might not have helped to provide an
    episode that instantly will spike ratings or light up social media, but it helps
    build toward consistency -- which is exactly what Raw has lacked.Hits and
    missesIts becoming redundant to mention each week how Jericho, closing in on 46,
    only seems to be improving during his current renaissance, particularly in terms
    of his comedy. But heres to hoping WWE has no plans of shutting down The List of
    Jericho gimmick any time soon, even to the point of being played out. Its
    working, so might as well let it ride.In what can prove to be tricky execution,
    give WWE credit for effectively intertwining the feuds of both Sasha
    Banks-Charlotte and Roman Reigns-Rusev to the tune of a strong opening segment
    and an entertaining mixed tag-team match later in the show.There was a strong
    level of attention to detail throughout, including fun banter between Charlotte
    and Rusev early on, which escalated into a backstage argument between Charlotte
    and Lana later on. The segment also exposed the strong chemistry, both backstage
    and inside the ring after their victory, between Banks and Reigns, which drew a
    large babyface pop from the Oakland crowd. Should the company insist on keeping
    both characters away from a heel turn, pairing them together when it makes sense
    could do a lot for their respective approval ratings.Its hard to imagine how the
    eventual payoff of a pay-per-view rematch between Brock Lesnar and Goldberg
    could possibly live up to the expectations that most fans would have in their
    headds.dddddddddddd After all, Goldberg is 49, and despite staying fit with MMA
    training, he hasnt been anywhere near a wrestling ring since his 2004 departure
    from WWE. But the buzz that would accompany the storyline -- provided Goldberg
    actually announces his return next week on Raw -- should do well to spice up the
    intensity on Monday nights. It would also bring about the weekly return of
    Lesnar advocate Paul Heyman to a place he belongs as a centerpiece on Raw.Heyman
    delivered a strong promo on Monday, issuing a challenge from Lesnar in response
    to Goldbergs comments last week on Off The Top Rope with Jonathan Coachman.?It
    was a reminder of just how once-in-a-lifetime Heymans ability to cut a promo
    truly is, and how WWEs new generation of superstars simply dont come close. It
    also exposed the biggest drawback in Lesnars part-time schedule -- the fact that
    Heyman disappears along with him. Being a Paul Heyman guy means something and
    WWE fails to take full advantage of Heymans talent by not aligning him with more
    superstars.Booking my flight to answer that big mouth @HeymanHustles challenge

    Goldberg (@Goldberg) October 11, 2016It was great to see The New Day return to
    operating at their comedic best for the second straight week before the start of
    Kofi Kingstons singles match against Cesaro. Not only did Kingston score points
    for his Full House reference in front of the Bay Area crowd, Big E was hilarious
    in pulling cereal from his singlet and tossing into the crowd. The match also
    produced an interesting experiment when Sheamus, showing just how disinterested
    he was in Cesaros match, sat against the ring post and recorded a Facebook Live
    video in real time. While the payoff in this case wasnt substantial, the WWE
    just might be onto something here for the future.Mick Foleys plaid suit was,
    well, something. At the very least, he stayed in character by wearing red and
    black.Sin Caras official move to the cruiserweight division made plenty of sense
    given his in-ring style, and he looked strong in his debut on Monday, teaming
    with Lince Dorado to defeat Drew Gulak and Tony Nese. Not only does Sin Cara
    provide a proven veteran presence, it would only seem to make sense for Neville
    and Kalisto (who currently competes on SmackDown Live) to follow his lead.The
    rebranding of Bo Dallas isnt going anywhere, from the political sign he carries
    to his nonsensical rhyming. Its time for the one idea that makes sense above
    all. (Yes, that idea.) Let him join his real-life brother Bray Wyatt as a member
    of Wyatt Family, where the creepiness of his character will be at home. Who
    knows? Combining their creative forces and natural charisma could prove to bring
    out the very best in both of them.It might have only been a few minutes long,
    but the locker room segment between WWE cruiserweight champion T.J. Perkins and
    veteran heel Brian Kendrick was incredibly effective at outlining the essence of
    their respective characters. Perkins counter right hand that knocked Kendrick
    down was the perfect exclamation pointGreat call by WWE for allowing Luke
    Gallows and Karl Anderson a chance to beat down Enzo Amore and Big Cass, thus
    further establishing the viciousness of their characters. The unprovoked attack
    was complete with Gallows yelling that the games are over. It has been talked
    about at length how The Clubs unsatisfying feud with The New Day failed to
    present them in the proper light. Consider Mondays appearance a return to the
    style that makes them so good.Move of the nightCruiserweight Lince Dorados
    shooting star press off the top rope onto Drew Gulak, helping lift himself and
    teammate Sin Cara to victory in their tag-team match, was a thing to
    behold.PICTURE PERFECT #ShootingStarPress from @LuchadorLD as he and @SinCaraWWE
