Wrestling seemed to take a back seat this week despite a main event featuring a two out of three falls tag title match.
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.
The tradition of an exciting RAW after Wrestlemania continues with some welcome returns and some very good matches!
This is a very long show, and with any show of this length, there are good and not so good parts. Overall, this is probably a middle-of-the-road Wrestlemania, but there is definitely some fun to be had here. Watching it all in one sitting might leave you a bit exhausted though.
With a lot of talking and three matches of varying quality, this was a pretty average kickoff show. Though the good parts were quite entertaining, there weren’t a ton of them considering the two-hour running time of the show.
Being the last PPV before Wrestlemania, it felt like they were playing it safe and predictable with Fastlane. Most of the matches weren’t great, there were some filler segments, and the main events didn’t really deliver. There were some bright spots on the show, but overall this one felt like an average (yet long) episode of RAW.
Other than the main event which had Braun Strowman taking on Big Show for the first time, this episode of RAW felt like we’ve seen it all before.
While the results make this show feel like more of the same from WWE, the show itself was entertaining. It wasn’t the best Royal Rumble in history, but the Rumble match itself was fine, and Styles versus Cena stole the show.
RAW celebrates Halloween with two title matches and a battle royal.
The last RAW before Hell in a Cell was okay, but it felt a lot like a pre-show rather than a complete show on its own.
Goldberg returns to RAW to answer Paul Heyman’s challenge in an entertaining show that also had Rusev sharing some family photos, Seth Rollins coming up with a new nickname for Chris Jericho, Cesaro not paying much attention to Sheamus’ match against Big E, and much more!
Good opening, good closer, and some nice matches in between. I liked the show.
The crowning of a new Universal Champ highlights a pretty good edition of RAW.
This year’s Summer Slam was entertaining, though for the matches that delivered on the hype, there were others that didn’t quite live up to expectations.
The last RAW before Summer Slam was a decent show, though the wrestling suffered for the story lines heading into the PPV.
