The stories going on are just abysmal, yet I'll admit that the peak of how bad it's ever been was Bayley vs Bliss with the This is Your Life segment and the whateveritwas on a pole match.

This is damn accurate.

The stories in WWE are so damn boring.  They are way worse than the cheesy golden era.  At least the golden era was so wacky that it was interesting.  The stories nowadays are just so dull with no creativity behind them.

The Golden age was great! 89-92 was IMO the best ever, way the fuck more fun to watch than the attitude era. It's a godam crime against wrestling fans everywhere that Prime Time Wrestling isn't available on the Network during that time period.

Quote Here is WWE.com's Raw preview for tonight:

The Big Dog is back
Sidelined due to illness and forced to miss The Shield’s anticipated return match at WWE TLC, Roman Reigns returns to Raw this Monday night to stand alongside Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose. Now that The Big Dog is stepping back into his yard, will the reunion of The Shield have Survivor Series implications?

The Beast Incarnate sounds off on The Phenomenal One
Following The Phenomenal One’s defeat of The Modern Day Maharaja on SmackDown LIVE in Manchester, U.K., Lesnar and his associate Paul Heyman now look to invite an entirely different potential resident to Suplex City at WWE’s fall classic. Most “don’t want none” from Styles, but The Phenomenal One has never faced anyone like The Conqueror. Styles had best be watching with the rest of us when Lesnar and Heyman make their red brand return.

Can Team Raw counter Mr. “Hustle, Loyalty & Respect”?
Team Red is full of heavy-hitters, including Bálor, Joe, Braun Strowman, Jason Jordan and Angle himself, but the addition of The Cenation Leader just might tip the scales in favor of the blue brand. How will Monday Night Raw respond to this challenge?

Triple Threat Match to determine final member of Raw Women's Survivor Series squad
This past Monday night, Alicia Fox added Asuka and Sasha Banks to her team, which also includes herself and the forceful Nia Jax. Who will fill that all-too-crucial final slot? We’ll find out on Raw when Bayley, Mickie James and Dana Brooke collide in a Triple Threat Match, with the winner becoming the fifth Superstar to represent Team Red in the Women’s 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match.

Will Kane once again bring the fight to The Monster Among Men?
Braun Strowman’s Running Powerslam has taken out countless Superstars over the past few months, but for Kane this past Monday night, The Monster Among Men’s ring-shaking finishing maneuver barely made an impact. Sitting up in true Big Red Machine fashion after being planted into the canvas, Kane was ultimately driven off after a massive clothesline sent him over the top rope (he landed on his feet, by the way), but something tells us the masked terror isn’t finished with Strowman just yet.

Love to see Rollins/Ambrose turn heel on Reigns blaming him not being there on them losing the tag team titles.
 
Heyman/Lesnar will bore with their usual predictable shit. If as a surprise Styles turns up that would boost interest.
 
Alicia Fox is captain and picking team mates, so why the triple threat? Why all of a sudden isn't she picking team mates like a captain should be? Expect a fatal four way surprise with Paige.

Go home Raw was a bit disappointing.

I was genuinely hoping for Paige to show up, seems they are holding back on her for now.

the way that HHH was bought into the Team Raw line up is what they should have done with Cena. hell, for me, Cena should have been announced on SDL, and been there in person. Cole on commentary provided a brilliant way to have done this. he pointed out that Cena is a 16 time champ, HHH a 14 time champ, and Orton a 13 time champ, so, the fifth spot on Team SDL could have been left vacant, Jordan would still have been cut, as he needed to be, and Steph could have said about Orton's title reigns and needing someone that could match and better that.

that then could have lead to intrigue for the rest of the night about whether Cena would be named, providing a massive pop, much biger than what HHH actually got, when he does come out as the fifth Raw guy.

it means then that SDL can have Shane come out, give Raw props for HHH, and at least explain why Cena would be on SDL when he was last seen on Raw. push the free agent aspect. Shane could have said that with HHH being a 14 time champ, he had to go for a free agent to get the drop, and then have Cena's music hit, have him be there.

this has been the problem with the entire build for Survivor Series, and other events in the social media era. WWE would rather make these big announcements on Twitter and Facebook, and not have the fans scrambling to let people know that something big has happened on the televised product.

same as last week. WWE.com reported on a big title change on Raw after the event had ended in Manchester, but before the show actually aired. well, there was only one title match, so people knew what that was most likely to be. after all, Lesnar wasn't going to have shown up in England to lose the Universal title, Miz isn't really in a feud with anyone currently, unless you count Kane, and the title doesn't need to go on him, and all your big female names are lined up for the female Survivor Series match, so it's not like Bliss is going to drop to Brooks and she seems to have finished her programme with James, so what sense would that make now.

if you're going to give away results, or big angles, through your website or on social media, you cannot be surprised if the numbers for the actual product are down.

Bray Wyatt returned, but with absolutely no build, and had to eat a pin to Jordan for a pointless angle of him looking strong and being taken out and injured after the match. Bray is a guy who should be at the fringe of the main event, forever on the periphery of the title picture, and he's have to enhance Jordan. he could have injured Jordan during the match, even going so far as to get disqualified, and been able to look a beast whilst still giving Jordan the W and getting the end result for the segment the same.

I don't know. I was debating whether or not to try and get a free trail for the Network, not so much for Survivor Series, I'm interested in NXT War Games, but i'm rapidly losing interest in the show when they can't do simple builds with impact, and would rather go after likes and retweets.

A couple getting engaged during a segment, even Brock couldn't help but break character LOL

Heyman did pretty well with his comeback line to the crowd chanting about it.

Just finished watching the HULU condensed version of Raw. It started out fairly well, I mean, after I skipped past the first 5 minutes or so of recaps. I ended up watching a lot more than I expected to, but after the shield match got underway I started losing interest. WWE matches are all the same these days. I watched the Lesnar segment, that was ok. I watched HHH kick out a young guy in favor of planting himself in a storyline he has nothing to do with. I just browsed through the rest. Kane vs Strowman doesn't interest me. That spot is old. Just... whatever. Sorry not to see Paige, but then again, perhaps this isn't the best time to see her come back anyway. Bayley should be in that survivor series match. Meh, whatever. I'm going to be at a wedding then anyway.
