This was a pretty good show with some nice surprises, but the ending confused me.
By keeping the match count low, this show was able to have some very nice wrestling. Chris Jericho wrestled AJ Styles in their rematch from the RAW after the Royal Rumble, and Sasha Banks took on Naomi in a very competitive match. Plus, the Dudley Boyz and the Wyatt Family both had some very important words for the WWE Universe (though some words were more cryptic than others).
This week’s Main Event had a surprisingly good match between Rusev and Ryback and a match that most people would expect to be good, Swagger versus Owens.
The return of the Rock and AJ Styles versus Chris Jericho highlight a good followup to the Royal Rumble.
Predictions are made and a fatal four way tag team match is held to determine two of the spots in the Royal Rumble match.
This week Main Event is bookended by two decent tag matches with a very nice, aggressive, quick match between Neville and Breeze in the middle.
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.
Tyler Breeze and Jack Swagger make up for their not-so-great match last week with a much better rematch.
A few nice happenings and a good rematch for the US Title make this a Smackdown worth watching.
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 last WWE show of the year and the last Smackdown on the SyFy channel brought some entertaining matches that didn’t mean much for stories, but were a pretty good diversion.
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.
