This Christmas Eve edition of RAW featured some pretty fun moments and two fine title matches, though in the end it felt a little inconsequential.
The promise of a fresh start on RAW has two number one contender matches, another beating of Baron Corbin, an IC Title open challenge, Ziggler and Balor attempting to settle their differences in the ring, and some retribution for Elias.
Ricochet defends his North American title against an NXT almuni in an open challenge, EC3 goes after revenge on Bobby Fish, Mia Yim faces Reina Gonzalez to qualify for a number one contender’s match, and The Mighty suffer the wrath of Burch and Lorcan in a good episode of NXT.
Dana Brooke faces Alicia Fox, and Tyler Breeze teams with Apollo Crews to take on the reformed team of Hawkins and Ryder in a fine episode of Main Event.
Gable and Roode face The Revival in a good tag match, and Tyler Breeze tries to survive the hype of Mojo Rawley in a pretty good episode of Main Event.
The Shield continues to show cracks while some returns give a bit of freshness to a show that otherwise felt mostly like more of the same from RAW.
Baron Corbin gets a chance to make up for his mistakes as acting-GM when he faces The Shield with two partners of his choice, Dean Ambrose’s loyalty is tested, The Revival finally get their tag title shot, and more all on an okay episode of RAW.
Mia Yim and Allysin Kay main event a series of first round matches that also included Kaitlyn vs Kavita Devi, Karen Q vs Xia Li, and Toni Storm vs Jinny!
The RAW before Hell in a Cell didn’t contain anything particularly remarkable, but it was an alright show overall.
Ziggler and McIntyre force their way into a match, The Shield gets in trouble with the law, the Authors of Pain get a new manager, Dana Brooke gets fed up, Bobby Roode gets a tag partner, and Shawn Michaels encounters The Undertaker on a not great episode of RAW.
The final RAW before Summer Slam added some anger to Reigns and Lesnar, some momentum for Corbin and Strowman, and a lunatic to Rollins and Ziggler.
Ronda Rousey (finally) makes her in-ring debut on RAW, Ruby Riott returns from injury, Rollins is left alone to take on Ziggler and McIntyre, and more on an okay episode of RAW that, even though it had a lot of matches, was light on wrestling.

This was an okay episode of RAW with a mixture of good and mediocre segments, highlighted by an entertaining performance from Ruby Riott in a gauntlet match to determine the final woman to enter the Money in the Bank match.
AN okay episode of RAW featured some “friendly competition” between Balor and Strowman, a fatal four way qualifying match for the female Money in the Bank match, Chad Gable taking on Dolph Ziggler, and much more.
Money in the Bank continues to shape up with three more qualifying matches, and Seth Rollins once again attempts to steal the show with another IC Title match on this pretty good episode of RAW.
Superstars from RAW begin to make their way to Money in the Bank in some qualifying matches including some nice triple threats for the men and the women.
Despite Backlash being an underwhelming show, there were some matches and moments that make it a show worth watching (or at least skipping through).
While the Greatest Royal Rumble was very long and ultimately didn’t mean much, there were some fun moments and good matches on the show.
The Superstar Shakeup brings the promise of new feuds, though this episode of RAW was more about spectacle than action.
