I  got an hour into Raw and it's been ok. I've been too busy this far, but I will still try and finish in the next day or two. The fact that it's even watchable is a good sign though.

Cedric Alexander On Raw was really over in the main event LOL

The Viking Experience/Raiders On Raw had another pointless match that the crowd were quiet through.

Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson On Raw continue with their niche of jobbing all the time.

Nikki Cross & Alexa Bliss Partnership was a let down by Alexa not being on Raw to promote her title match this weekend.

Shane Mcmahon & Roman Reigns Storyline was another let down due to Undertaker not being booked for the go home show for Extreme Rules.

Antonio Cesaro On Raw is someone I hope continues to be pushed as a solo guy.

Raw wasn't as good as the previous week but the harsh criticism fans have been giving it is way over the top.

Ricochet beating Gallows and Anderson was a good way to build him up ahead of his clash with AJ, usually Gallows and Anderson are recognised as a team so losing singles matches doesn't really hurt them. AJ inflicting a post match beatdown on Ricochet gives him more heat ahead of Sunday.


The mixed tag opener was a good match and put a bit of spotlight on Andrade, never a bad thing.


Lashley for the first time ever was booked like a beast tearing through Mysterio, he should have been booked like this months ago.


The stuff with the Kanellis' is weird but its made them relevant and a talking point, some stuff is done for shock value and surely its better than them not featuring on tv at all?


My main complaint about the show was the main event. They ran a show long angle where Shane could choose who he wanted as Roman's partner for the match on Raw, they teased a garbage man and another random, then Cedric Alexander comes out in a mask disguised as the garbage man and gets in a few high spots which the crowd popped for before being pinned by McIntyre. This was the go home show for Extreme Rules The Undertaker should have appeared, this angle made no sense, I'm all for a low card guy getting a chance to shine in a main event setting but this wasn't the time and it just didn't make any sense within the storyline and they didn't seem to try and make it make sense, Roman seemed confused by the whole thing. Bizarre way to end things prior to the match at Extreme Rules.

I just sat through Raw, & Smackdown from last week and then Raw and Smackdown from this week, and all I have to say from this week was that I've already forgotten what happened.

Some of that has to do with the brand split, seeing as without any division between the two shows I don't know what storylines are on what show. The women used to carry the company for me for a few years, but now I couldn't care less.

On the bright side at least nothing disgust me to the point of wanting to stop watching the show... I guess that's a step up.

Bray saved Raw this week - was a nice surprise to finally see him return

The crowd were very disrespectful during the womens match

Literally nothing else was good this week so this must have been a Vince McMahon week to run Raw as opposed to Heyman.

i wonder what Drew has done to upset him?

The sooner the old bastard hands the reigns over to people actually in touch with what the fans want to see - the better

The roster and the fans deserve much better (well not these particular fans because of the way they acted during the womens match)

Seth Rollins Versus Brock Lesnar Storyline should be good. I wouldn't have done the title change but don't mind another match.

Elias Samson On Raw is an afterthought after previously being one of the best parts of a show.

The crowd hated seeing the women wrestle and pissed all over it.

I thought it was a good episode with some good storyline development.

I didn't really care much for the tag matches they just felt like filler and this ridiculous constant use of the 2 out of 3 falls rule just to abide by Vince's rule of no wrestling during commercial breaks has to stop. Same with the constant elimination matches.

I liked the interaction between Ziggler and The Miz and this should be a good mid-level feud between the two real life friends.

Bray Wyatt was awesome, I'll cover more of that in the relevant thread, seemed strange to have Finn Balor lose quickly to Joe only to set up a post match fight and then the Wyatt arrival, don't know why they set it up that way.

I don't think there was too much wrong with what happened with McIntyre, I'll cover the reasons in the other thread.

The fans were disrespectful and should never behave like that even if the match is poor and it was I found it mostly boring but there are plenty of outlets to vent your frustrations after the match respect should be shown for the talent trying to perform in the ring.
Nattie seems a poor choice to face Becky as shes done nothing of note for years and is very much just a utility player at this point. The Womens division needs Ronda back and fast.

The battle royal was good but I wish they'd gone with a fresh opponent for Brock, would much rather have seen Randy, Strowman, Lashley, even Cesaro or Big E go up against Lesnar at Summerslam.

With the Raw Reunion episode tomorrow, I will tune in live (or rather 3-hours later on Pacific time) to see the entire show. These are shows that are almost always fun to see even if they typically don't do anything to further on-going storylines. I look forward to seeing who shows up.
