This was another long WrestleMania with a mostly entertaining mixture of memorable moments, good matches, underwhelming matches, and strange decisions.
RAW 25 is a show packed with nostalgia and a ton of familiar faces!
Despite the unfortunate injury to Finn Balor at Summer Slam, this was a good follow-up show to the PPV. A series of matches took place to determine four contenders who will fight to become the new Universal Champ, a probable new contender for Charlotte’s Women’s Title is introduced, and the Dudley Boyz gave what might be a retirement speech.
Sheamus and Cesaro start their best-of-seven series in a match that highlights a nice warm-up for Summer Slam.
The last RAW before Summer Slam was a decent show, though the wrestling suffered for the story lines heading into the PPV.
An impromptu US Title match and a cake to the face highlight a pretty enjoyable episode of RAW.
Neville returns to Superstars against “Mr. Irrelevant” Curtis Axel, and The Dudley Boyz face the makeshift team of Sin Cara and Jack Swagger in an average edition of WWE Superstars.
Considering the recent draft, this show was a bit underwhelming, but it was fine.
A new start for RAW, and in many ways and a good show. It wasn’t perfect, but it was very entertaining and some big stuff happened. Hopefully they can keep this up.
A long and entertaining show highlighted by two good matches featuring long histories. There was some down time in the show, but the good outweighed the not as good.
A so-so show. Only one decent match, and it wasn’t really anything spectacular.
The last Main Event before the new rosters take effect was entertaining, if somewhat standard.
The big reveal of the Commissioners wasn’t surprising, and it had one of my least favorite segments in recent memory, but this RAW did have some really fun moments.
The 4th of July brought a lot of America, a great match between Rollins and Ziggler, another former SmackDown manager, and more America. Not a bad show.
Good matches and good talking segments make for one of the better Smackdowns in recent memory.
Except for a good main event, the wrestling was lacking on this RAW. This show was more about story, the best one being John Cena’s return and the person who made a statement at his expense.
Despite the announcement of the Divas Title match being triple threat, this show seemed kind of like it didn’t matter in the long run, but it was still a very entertaining show.
Dean Ambrose challenges Triple H to a title match in a development that keeps things interesting despite the absence of their Wrestlemania opponents.
With good matches and some nice attention paid to developing stories, this week’s Smackdown was very entertaining.
A good Smackdown that maintained interest in Sunday’s Fastlane with good, but unsurprising, matches.
