The return of the Rock and AJ Styles versus Chris Jericho highlight a good followup to the Royal Rumble.
As a complete show, the 2016 Royal Rumble started strong and lost some steam as it went along. As a match, it seemed reminiscent of years past, which isn’t always a good thing.
This show felt a lot like the previous RAW in that not much new ground was covered, but there were still enough fun segments to make it an entertaining show.
As the last RAW before the Royal Rumble, this show felt a little like treading water, but one segment in particular made for an interesting lead-in to one of the most fun events of the year.
This week’s RAW featured more of the same for the most part, but there were a few highlights spread throughout the show.
The road to the Royal Rumble got off to a pretty good start in 2016 in a RAW that saw the return of an old favorite, the emergence of a new faction, and the announcement of a big match stipulation!
The 2015 Slammy Awards are given out in a fairly entertaining show even if it was a little disappointing for a few reasons.
In the aftermath of TLC, some dumb, dumb decisions were made by some people in power. But there was also a bit of nostalgia for the city of Philadelphia and some furthering of rivalries. Clearly, TLC did nothing to settle anything.
As the last RAW before TLC, did this upside-down show at least maintain interest in the PPV?

We were guaranteed a new World Heavyweight Champion, and we got one, but is it what we really wanted or expected? Also, did The Undertaker pass the torch to Bray Wyatt, who held the Diva’s title after the verbal attacks became physical, and how much did New Day rock in a Survivor Series match? Read on to find out all this and more!
With a surprisingly strong Miz TV to start the show but some unfortunately short matches, this Smackdown is a pretty good, but not fantastic, lead in to Survivor Series.
Classic “good news, bad news” situation here. The good news: Divas highlight the main event segment. Bad news: it’s a contract signing.
There’s more good news than bad with this show though. There’s some really good wrestling, specifically in the matches for the World Heavyweight Championship Tournament.
