Paige & Sonya Deville & Mandy Rose On Raw I expect to break up next week after the Paige speech last night.

The Revival On Raw winning was good, even though it's just so they can job next week.

Going to be a spike in the RAW Ratings Thread this week, with it being the best crowd every year.

Sadly, I didn't see a thing that makes me interested enough to tune in next week if I'm new to the product.

Bray/Matt vs Revival should be good if they get enough time. Sasha/Bayley has been a long time coming. SSU to freshen up the roster. I would say next week looks pretty good already.
 
Quote The Miz & The Miztourage vs. Finn Balor, Jeff Hardy, & Seth Rollins: The Miz starts off, but immediately tags in Axel before doing anything. Rollins and Axel go at it now, and Axel gets a shot on him and tags in Dallas. Rollins fights them off and hits a leg drop on Dallas. Jeff Hardy tags in now and hits the Poetry In Motion on both Axel and Dallas. Dallas beats on Rollins until Balor gets the tag, and Balor cleans house. Balor hits a double foot stomp on Axel, then lays into him with chops in the corner. Dallas gets a shot on Balor then Miz tags in. Miz takes control of the match now and hits a neckbreaker on Balor. Axel comes in now and continues the offense on Balor. Axel and Dallas now take turns working over Finn. Balor comes back with a back suplex on Axel, but Miz gets the tag and drops Balor. Balor wants the tag but Miz holds him back. Balor hits a dropkick and finally gets the hot tag to Jeff Hardy. Jeff comes in and cleans house. The crowd chants "Brother Nero" as Axel and Dallas start firing up and double teaming Hardy. Hardy hits the Whipser In The Wind off the top on both Dallas and Axel, and all three men are down. Miz and Rollins get the tags, and Rollins hits a springboard shot on Miz. Rollins follows up with a bockbuster on Miz, then a suicide dive on Axel at ringside. Rollins clotheslines Miz outside and then hits a suicide dive on the whole Miztourage on the floor. Back in the ring, Rollins hits a superplex and Falcon Arrow on Miz. Balor drops Dallas and Axel and sends them outside, then hits a suicide dive on them. Miz and Rollins go at it in the ring, and after a series of roll-up pin attempts, Rollins hits a curb stomp on Miz for the three count.

Winners: Seth Rollins, Jeff Hardy & Finn Balor

- After the match, Jeff hits the Twist of Fate on Dallas, then Balor hits the Coup De Grace on him. Jeff then goes up top and hits the Swanton Bomb on Dallas for good measure. Rollins then hits a curb stomp on Dallas, then they turn their attention to Axel. Miz kicks Axel down, then Balor hits the Coup De Grace, and Jeff hits the Swanton on Axel. Rollins then hits the curb stomp on Axel, and he holds up his IC Title in the ring with Jeff and Finn.

Good to see a main event featuring four midcard guys who don't always get a chance to close a show.
 
A good couple of nights for Seth, with him pinning the former champion.

Who are the Revival? Why should I care about Matt & Bray? All I know are John Cena, and Ronda Rousey. John Cena wasn't on the show, and Rousey doesn't appear to have any storyline, and is done for now. She'll probably go back to doing other things, and show up again at some later date. Chris Jericho is gone, Randy Orton wasn't on the show. Some MMA guy I heard was a champion for President Trump returned but fuck that guy, because fuck Trump. The only other guys I know of is The Big Show, and Steve Austin and The Rock, and little of Triple H, but none of them were around either.

~~~~~~~~~~

See where I'm coming from here? If all you know are the most mainstream of WWE superstars there's nothing going on that makes me thing that next week is going to be better. That superstar shakeup? So what? They're going to trade guys I don't know for other guys I don't know.

They did a bunch of debuts, which is cool, but for a new fan tuning in for the first time they're nobodies. The only storylines that are going to matter to a new fan are Cena & Rousey, and someone like Chris Jericho, or Batista or someone that's at least made a name for themselves elsewhere and/or been a big star since the attitude era.

Rousey should have gotten some kind of "to be continued" storyline where there is a reason to tune in next week to see what she's going to do, and Cena should have too. This is the night after WrestleMania, and if you're going to make sizable gains on viewership this is where it's going to happen. WWE did nothing for these people.

Not sure why the commentators felt the need to point out the crowd are booing who they would normally cheer and visa versa 

The crowds post mania are always awesome

It was weird they kept reporting about the crowd, when they weren't as marky as usual post Mania.
 
Quote Here are the key points WWE is promoting for tonight's Raw, which is the first of the two-day "Superstar Shake-Up" that will move talent from one brand to another.
  • Both brands get shaken up
  • Who will battle Cesaro & Sheamus at WWE Greatest Royal Rumble on April 27?
  • Bayley and Sasha Banks settle their differences
  • Will Ronda Rousey face repercussions after attacking Stephanie McMahon again?
  • Will Roman Reigns get his hands on Samoa Joe?
  • What “unfinished business” does Bobby Lashley have in WWE?

I expect a couple of champions to switch the brands, to really freshen things up.

I miss the old days when a GM would come out and tell you who they have picked for their brand, rather than someone just coming out to their music, in a t shirt of their new show.

First Stephanie McMahon, and now Mickie James. I wonder who's gonna get their arm broken next (yes, it's probably going to be Nattie).

Watched the post-Wrestlemania and superstar shake up episodes in full but back to my usual routine of YouTube highlights this week.

Nothing much of note, most of what was happening seemed to be either building to the Greatest Royal Rumble show or planting seeds for some new feuds, but none of it really advanced any storylines it all felt very safe and run of the mill.

The current format seems to have the babyfaces squashing all the heels, only Lesnar seems to be booked as a credible heel talent at present.

Wait what??? I just finished Raw on Hulu, and the 10 woman tag was the main event??? That was really underwhelming. Don't get me wrong, I liked the "Moment of Bliss" that was really funny, but the match was kinda mid-card for a 3-hour Raw. There wasn't a singles match or anything really significant at all that came on after that??? Meh Whatever.

I agree with you Fletch, very safe, nothing much of note, very run of the mill. At least nothing I saw on Hulu was cringeworthy or outrageously stupid. So at least there's that.

Who's challenging for the Intercontinental Title at the Greatest Royal Rumble??? And what's going on with the Raw Tag titles? 

I think I heard that women aren't allowed to compete in Saudi Arabia, is that true? So I guess we won't see any of them there, eh?
