The RAW Tag Titles are on the line in an show that was a definite improvement over last week’s RAW.
Despite some highlights, this wasn’t a great show. It felt like people were covering for lots of people who were taking vacation time, both wrestlers and writing staff.

Tonight’s show was light on wrestling with the exceptions of a nice opener and closer, but there were a few good moments including a memorable segment featuring Paul Heyman confronting Samoa Joe.
It was quantity mostly over quality on this episode of RAW packed with ten matches. There were some highlights of the night though, including Matt Hardy versus Sheamus and a tag main event with four of the five competitors in the upcoming number one contender match.
This episode seemed light on story, and the main event wasn’t as good as lat week’s, but a very nice Tag Team Turmoil match helped make this show a decent one.
This show was good, but the main event made it great. Finn Balor, The Miz, and Seth Rollins faced off in a triple threat that stole the show and outclassed everything at Payback the night before.
An okay show highlighted by a memorable (if somewhat recycled) moment.
