Just to correct a couple of Adders’ mistakes

Seth Rollins is feuding with Ziggler and McIntyre in what is the highlight of Raw most weeks.

Baron Corbin is actually fairly good in his Constable role and is feuding with Balor.

Lesnar was excellent this week being super heelish as a champion who acts like he doesn’t want to be there and doesn’t care about the business or the fans and is just there for a pay day. Brock as the mega heel seems to be getting more fan support for Roman. Brock even pushed Heyman around and attacked Angle. This was the most verbal work Brock has done in years and he again proved he’s quite capable of doing his own talking.

Lashley and Reigns seem to have completed what was actually a decent feud and now Lashley is feuding with Elias.

Bobby Roode and Mojo Rawley are in a low card feud. Rawley is surprisingly good in his new heel role.

Bayley and Sasha after falling out and having to do silly shrink sessions are now being vomit inducing nice to each other and are teaming up most weeks. I think this is headed to a heel turn from one of them, hopefully Sasha.

Ronda Rousey is feuding with Alexa Bliss and has her first Raw match next week against Alicia Fox.

The B Team are still feuding with Wyatt/Hardy but a double-turn seems to have happened here with the B Team now faces and Wyatt/Hardy heels, the Revival have entered the tag title mix too.
Authors of Pain are still feuding with Titus World-wide and AOP have started doing their own promos which I think is a bad move as it’s clearly not their forte. Sadly I think WWE are making the exact same mistakes with AOP that they have made with the Ascension on the main roster.

Quote Last night on Instagram, WWE GM Kurt Angle announced two more matches for tonight's Raw, bringing the total official matches to four.  He announced that Sasha Banks and Bayley will team up to take on the Riott Squad's Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan and that The Revival will battle The B-Team.

--Already announced for the show is Ronda Rousey's first match on Raw when she takes on Alicia Fox as well as Bobby Roode wrestling Mojo Rawley.

Surely Bayley/Sasha will lose, it will break down between them and before the end of the show it's announced they will face eachother at Summerslam.
 
Revival to win and be added to a triple threat title match at Summerslam.
 
Fox to try and run away from Rousey, get caught by her eventually and lose in about a minute.

Sasha and Bayley and also Mojo and Roode we're not on the Hulu presentation of Raw. Maybe that's for the best for though? I have to admit I actually enjoyed Raw. The matches we're good the staries weren't cringey, and most importantly they did a lot to sell me on SummerSlam.

Tomorrow morning I will watch SmackDown and if it too is good I will renew my subscription to the network and watch SummerSlam this weekend.

Quote As announced on tonight's WWE Raw, on next week's episode, Triple H will return to TV to respond to the Undertaker. Also announced is Mick Foley returning to TV to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his iconic Hell in a Cell match against Undertaker. It appears WWE is using all these past nostalgic acts as the primary way to push the Undertaker/HHH match which up until now had no story behind it.

Next week's #RAW will be LEGENDARY, because @TripleH will respond to The #Undertaker, and @RealMickFoley will celebrate 20 YEARS of his iconic #HellInACell match... #HIAC pic.twitter.com/2RkyrrJGAg

-- Also announced for next week's show is WWE Raw Women's champion Ronda Rousey teaming up with her friend Natalya to take on the duo of Alexa Bliss and Alicia Fox.

NEXT WEEK: #RAW #WomensChampion @RondaRousey teams with @NatbyNature to take on @AlexaBliss_WWE & @AliciaFoxy! pic.twitter.com/RMWGOBklFZ

Would prefer for Undertaker and Hs to be on the same show instead of turning up alone all the time.
 
Not sure why Foley is celebrating something two months too late for.
 
I suspect the heels will lose the tag match as they don't want Ronda involved in any loss.

You know since getting back in after taking a couple months off, I'm liking watching the hulu presentation a lot more than others seem to be liking the actual show.

I STILL maintain that 3 hours isn't too long, but I have to admit that WWE doesn't seem to be able to make a 3 hour show worth watching. The hour and forty five minute run time of the hulu presentation is IMO really quite good, and I've enjoyed Raw more than I have in years the last 3 weeks or so.

A lot of throwaway stuff this week I skipped most of the mid-card and women’s matches on this episode, the only things of note were the angle where they teased a Ambrose heel turn and a McIntyre face turn and the Elias/Lashley match which was entertaining stuff.

The main event of AOP and Corbin vs The Shield was a smart piece of booking, they obviously wanted to test the waters with AOP in a top position and it helps establish them as a force by working with three top guys, in honesty I felt they looked a little out of their depth but that’s to be expected this early on, they were in the ring with three guys who have been working main events for years now.

Aside from the Ambrose/McIntyre stuff, I've already forgotten most everything.

Oh wait... no there was that abortion of a Bella's match where Brie accidently concussed Liv Morgan. Bellas really need to never wrestle again. It's bad enough they get credit for the women's revolution, but if they keep this up they're gonna drag them backwards a few years.

Quote WWE Raw GM Kurt Angle is backstage at Raw tonight in Chicago. He has been off TV for several weeks in a leave of absence, strictly from a storyline perspective. Whether he is on camera on Raw tonight remains to be seen, but Angle is expected back on TV within the next couple of weeks as WWE begins their build towards Survivor Series where he is rumored to be wrestling in a possible Team Angle vs. Team Corbin match.

-- WWE Hall of Famer Lita is also backstage, but it is also unknown if she will be appearing on TV. Trish Stratus has already been announced by the company to be on Raw to further her program with Alexa Bliss.

-- WWE has announced the following Super Show-Down rematches for tonight. Particularly interesting is the six-woman match as there is expected to be a major development that will help WWE get to the rumored Rousey vs. Nikki Bella match slated for the Evolution PPV on October 28.

    * Ronda Rousey & The Bella Twins vs. The Riott Squad

    * The Shield vs. Drew McIntyre, Dolph Ziggler & Braun Strowman

Recently they have been battered in the ratings by NFL and Dancing With The Stars, so if they don't have Kurt appear on TV tonight it's a big waste of him being there.
    I can't see Lita appearing on screen. Raw time is precious, so for two former divas to be given seperate segments seems a stretch.
    SSD rematches don't appeal at all. Both winning teams won convincingly enough that we didn't need to see them again.

Well I finished watching the episode on Hulu a little bit ago, and I have to say this was one of the best episode of Raw I've seen in years and years.

Bobby Lashley heel turn.

Bella Twins heel turn.

HBK comes out of retirement for (at least) one more match & reforms DX.

Trish & Lita hyping their tag match.

Kurt Angle returns.

Ambrose walks out on The Shield.

Every segment on the show was somewhere between great to can't miss.

Granted it's cheap tactics, 1 good storyline development, 2 heel turns, 3 nostalgia pop/returns. You can't do that every week, but it was still something we need more of these days.

Completely agree, loads of storyline developments and character changes presenting fresh scenarios, the return of some veterans which is always good for the nostalgia. A decent main event which teased yet another big change for a character, just a very entertaining episode overall that was different from the usual run of the mill stuff. Elias was on fire too getting great heat with his lyrical promo.

Nice to see WWE making some changes and taking some risks.
