Quote Trish Stratus and Lita are out to the ring next. Lita and Trish start talking about the women's Evolution, until Alexa Bliss and Mickie James interrupt. Mickie and Alexa start impersonating Lita and Trish and trashing them on the mic. Lita and Trish throw back some verbal shots, and channel Allen Iverson's "practice" speech. Alexa and Mickie tease that they're going to hit the ring, but they end up leaving.
 
I felt sorry for Trish and Lita with the dead crowd they got. Female legends aren't treated the same as male legends by a lot of fans.
 
Lita didn't need to be there for how little she did. It was mainly Trish with Lita in the background.
 
Something needs to happen to avoid crickets being heard during the Evolution tag match.

So Raw cried wolf last night didn't they?

We're going to change, blah blah blah, and nothing actually changed.

Rousey comes out saying she wants to start a new tradition where the champion defends the title on Raw the night after a PPV no matter what condition she is in, and Stephanie says she'll get her match... next week. ??? Seriously?

None of the same boring matches supposedly, but we get Baron Corbin vs Angle, Apollo Crews, Roode & Gable in a handicap match. As if we haven't seen enough of heels getting booked as the underdog already.

And apparently Rollins vs Ambrose for the millionth time is still going, too.

Glad it's Christmas next week. I won't be watching, nor likely the week after that since it'll be new year's eve.

Hopefully they can do something decent for the Royal Rumble.

I agree , nothing will change. They don’t need to let the fans say what happens either. While there needs to be a balance that’s not the way. I still say the brand split was a mistake as well.

The Revival On Raw put in a great performance in defeat, which is hopefully a good sign for the future of the tag team division.

Seth Rollins On Raw is still resting up his bad back, but at least he got to appear in a couple of segments.

Finn Balor & Bobby Lashley Storyline looks to be heading towards a rematch, probably at Fast Lane.

Nia Jax & Tamina Snuka Partnership Looks to be the first in line for a tag team title shot against Bayley and Sasha.

All i have to say about this weeks Raw is ... what a night for NXT

I'm interested to see how this plays out because whilst Black etc have no real ties to storylines now and they would be free to move over, Gargano and Ciampa have titles still so will be pulling double duty for a while i would imagine

Well this week, I think the most interesting part of Raw was seeing Beth Phoenix back and proving she's still got it.

I love Rousey, Lynch and Charlotte, but their story has really gone off the rails, and I hate beat the clock challenges unless they involve ACTUAL JOBBERS. How is anyone supposed to take the Riott Squad seriously after this? A few months ago I was really hoping they'd get the main event spot, but in true WWE fashion, they've ruined their main event with WWE style booking.

Rollins vs Lesnar is a total bore still.

McIntyre seems promising still, I'm glad he's on his own again, and not shackled with Corbin & Lashley. I feel like I can pretty much guarantee he will be either WWE or Universal Champion before or at WM36, and while he deserves it, I have no confidence WWE will make that title run entertaining.

Angle vs Corbin... man I hate seeing Angle as bad as he is now. At least the Undertaker has a reason to move so slow, playing the deadman and all, Angle just looks past it and he's not even as witty as he used to be either. He's one of the greatest of all time, but more and more I am respecting what HBK did in leaving before he showed that he was past it (DX vs BoD notwithstanding).

Oh, one other thing I actually like is the chemistry between Alexa Bliss & Braun Strowman. They should do much more together. Also, I was really hoping when Strowman started calling her by her first name that he would say: "This is depressing, Alexa play Despacito." That would have gotten a good pop, or at least a huge hit count on the youtube upload.

Everything else was totally forgettable. WWE really needs to learn to step it up. The Road to WrestleMania used to be THE time to watch WWE, now it's like everything else.

The Revival On Raw were made to look bad again. For champions they continue to lose too much.

Alexa Bliss On Raw did a decent enough segment for a change. Helped by playing off Braun who she's got chemistry with from when they teamed together.

Ronda Rousey & Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair Fued I hated making Riott Squad look bad. Beat The Clock are never fun.

this is so fucking true, it hurts.

they should be one of the teams challenging for the tag titles, with Logan and Morgan backing up Riott as a potential challenger for the Raw Women's title, but they've fucked the group over for the past month now to the point they're glorified jobbers now.

post Mania, hopefully, they can take a break, and be allowed to come back as a dominant group.

I mean, they've been shat on from the start, anyway. they arrived on the back of Paige's return with Deville and Moore, who got to debut on Raw as opposed to SDL, they've been destroyed as an entity by Nattie over a pair of fucking shades, and overall haven't been allowed to show how good they really are, especially when they were put in the ring opposite the fucking Bellas.

Well it shouldn't be a surprise, but still I am surprised to that that was the best Raw in ages. After the last few years of Raw after mania pretty well sucking, I decided on a hunch to watch this Raw live (or semi-live as it is on a 3 hour delay on the west coast) and I was not disappointed. Pretty good show from top to bottom.

Lars finally debuted, Sami came back, Undertaker returned for a cheap pop, Becky got in a fight with a Marine, and despite the makeup Whatsherass did fairly well (seriously my mine is blanking on her name, the chick that has been pretending to do her entrance for months now), and Kofi is still champion despite he and Seth having a title for title match.

Next week is the superstar shakeup... That doesn't really seem to mean much, but those make for good shows too.

Quote WWE holds this year’s Superstar Shakeup on tonight’s episode of Raw and Tuesday’s SmackDown Live in Montreal, QC at the Bell Centre.

It’s being reported that travel issues are forcing creative changes for tonight’s Raw. We will be providing live play-by-play coverage of Raw later tonight at 8 PM EST.

John Pollock noted on Twitter, “Have heard there are a number of travel issues involving WWE personnel and talent for tonight’s show in Montreal. ‘Things are being rewritten as a result’. No word on what effect this will have on tonight’s show.”

This will make Raw more fun viewing to notice which big name regulars can't get there.

The weather forecast isn't bad, so I don't see what the issue is for getting there.

Looking forward to it as I do enjoy the Bizzaro World atmosphere of a Canadian crowd.
