I agree with most of what you said. I really did enjoy Seth and Stephanie segment. Sure, we've seen it before but this was the first time in a while that I felt Seth was growing into this role.

As for the Cruisers...I've been saying from the start they need to take them off RAW and just do 205 Live from Full Sail. Keep the show in front of the crowd that will appreciate it. Why wasn't the coronation on 205 Live?!

The show was great and loved most of it, but there is one major problem I had with it. After the show went off the air, Brock came back out and issues an open challenge, in which Big Show comes out, only to receive an F5. 

Just hearing about it, that is intelligence insulting and if they wanted Brock to get physical, it should have been done during he and Heyman's segment.

The opening segment seemed rather awkward didn't it? I know Foley is in a lot of pain but it just seemed all kinds of awkward. However Joe vs Reigns? I can handle that.

Bayley/Nia was ok. I like the way they're booking Nia at the moment. It's a shame they didn't book her properly from the start. It continues the angle between Charlotte & Bayley too and the loss just builds more sympathy for Bayley so all round win there.

Strowman against Jobbers eurgh, move on past this already. What's worse is Strowman is now getting fed to Reigns at Fastlane and that's not good for his development at the moment, they're going to kill Strowman in one PPV right before WM too!

Tozawa/Nese was decent. Not too sure why Brian Kendrick came out to shake hands afterwards :/

JeriKo again superb. Billberg was Billberg, and we get the match nobody wants at Fastlane, here's to KO jobbing in a short amount of time, again just before WM sigh.

Tag match seemed a waste of a rematch, though with how it all unfolded we either get a triple threat at Fastlane or SAWFT will have a shot, so could wok out longer term.

New Day over Shining Stars is just a filler so nothing to work with there.

I really enjoyed Jericho vs Zayn. It was a very good match, and just when you think Sami will get a title run, it ends thanks to KO. We all know KO and Zayn work amazingly well together, so that continuation of their long term feud takes another twist. However I do wonder if we'll get Jericho vs Zayn again at Fastlane.

5 way #1 contendership match on 205 live yeah could be a decent clusterfuck match. 6 man tag was ok I guess.

Really enjoyed Joe/Reigns. A good hard hitting match and Joe going over clean is a big surprise, and certainly something I didn't see happening. Also a solid post match beat down by Strowman, so maybe he won't get killed at Fastlane? Nah we all know it's happening haha.

I wouldn't count Strowman out yet. Undertaker has yet to sink his teeth into Roman to properly set up their Mania match and I think it might be the reason Strowman comes out on top at Fastlane.

Well I have no idea where this episode came from, but this was easily the best show of Raw or Smackdown since the brand split IMO.

They had a solid undercard, got Reigns out of the way early, corrected course on Emma, Samoa Joe looked good, Sami Zayn said what he needed to to save face and in doing so ignited a good looking feud with Joe. We had the much speculated upon breakup of Jeri-KO, and then finished with a clinic from Charlotte and Bayley which ended with Bayley as WWE Women's Champion.

I haven't been enjoying Raw for ages now, but this was good. Not just good by today's standards but good in any era.

For once, I was interested in what was happening on Raw, especially since this week wasn't the KO/Reigns show.

They pulled a Jericho with Emma's return, but 17 weeks for it? May seem like they're back peddling, but if it means we get bad ass cop Emma back, I'm 100% fine with that. Cop Emma is best Emma.

WWE has done a pretty good job of teasing the break up of KO and Jericho at points that some were actually surprised when the friendship ended during the Festival of Friendship. But this is exactly what needed to happen to build KO as a dominant heel as opposed to the cowardly champion that we've had over the past few months. But then again, anyone going up against Reigns can't look dominant. Gotta make Roman look strong! WWE did the one thing that actually got KO boo'ed.

As time goes on, I'm really enjoying Sheamus and Cesaro as a tag team. People caring about Sheamus? What kind of sorcery is this?

Charlotte v. Bayley was definitely worthy of that main event slot, making use of every minute they were given. While I want to enjoy Bayley's title win, part of me can't help but think we're getting championship flip-flop 2: electric boogaloo. I sure hope that Charlotte and Bayley aren't going to be passing the title back and forth for the next 4 or 5 months.

That Jericho speech hit me right in the feels. It came off as so genuine that when KO gave him the gift...and we got the slow reveal of the List of KO...I was yelling about "THAT BASTARD" Kevin Owens.

They got me. They got me good.

Back to business as usual on Raw...

Owens was good. There was that. Actually the Bayley, Sasha, Charlotte series was good too, from the promo to the match. For being doomed to be bad from the start, Strowman vs Big Show was not a total trainwreck, but really not that great either.

As for the rest of the show? Meh, whatever. Good job Raw, I'm already bored of Samoa Joe.

Owens promo was strong, good to see him back to his heel best, just hope this translates to him being booked a bit stronger in the ring too but I just fear Goldberg is going over at Fastlane in a quick squash.

Big Show vs Strowman was actually a fairly solid big man match, Strowman proved he can go in the ring here by more than holding up his end in the match against a guy nearing the end of his career who has never really been known for quality matches.

Enjoyed the Neville/ Gallagher contract signing, Neville is gold as a heel.

The rest was all missable, New Day at this point suck, Rusev should be doing something better, Samoa Joe has been demoted to mid-card partly due to the Rollins injury admittedly, Reigns is still being booked as superhuman, I like his character but WWE need to turn this guy heel for a short time at least.

Lesnar promo was weak, seriously even in a pre-taped segment Brock can only sit there in silence while Heyman talks. Staring menacingly in to the camera is hardly earning his top dollar salary is it.

My word how poor was Raw this week? With the exception of Rollins/Trips segment, Goldberg/Owens segment, Cesaro vs Joe and the closing of the show, the rest was really poor. Suppose they're giving the guys in the matches at Fastlane decent stuff to work with but the rest are an afterthought.
