The RAW after Wrestlemania brings some new faces and surprises (some more exciting than others), but one superstar appears to be at the end of her time in the ring.
This was another long WrestleMania with a mostly entertaining mixture of memorable moments, good matches, underwhelming matches, and strange decisions.
The final RAW before Wrestlemania provided one great match between Finn Balor and Seth Rollins, and a whole lot of buildup of varying quality.
Sasha Banks looks to end Asuka’s undefeated streak and the Elimination Chamber starts to shape up with a series of qualifying matches in a pretty good episode of RAW.
RAW 25 is a show packed with nostalgia and a ton of familiar faces!
After winning at Survivor Series, RAW started setting up new story lines with a big return and a big title match. They also jumped back into some other story lines that got put on hold during the buildup to Survivor Series.
This year’s Survivor Series might not have been completely unpredictable, but it was mostly enjoyable to watch.
Stephanie once again threatens Kurt Angle’s job, Team RAW goes through some adjustments, and The Shield competes all together for the first time in years on an okay episode of RAW.
Tonight’s RAW was a night of returns and title matches, including The Miz and Alexa Bliss putting their titles on the line.
Vince McMahon confronts Kevin Owens in a good episode of SmackDown that featured three title 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.
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.
A good cruiserweight tag match and a few backstage segments made this a decent warmup for Fastlane.
A less than great RAW leads us into a PPV that feels less than compelling.
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.
Bayley gets another chance at the RAW Women’s Title and Jericho pays tribute to his best friend and brother Kevin Owens with a Festival of Friendship in the two highlights of an otherwise average episode of RAW.
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.
Though it felt long at two hours, the three matches helped make this a pretty good way to kick off the 2017 Royal Rumble.
A good show with some entertaining segments and nice matches.
A couple of good Hell in a Cell matches make this a decent show.
