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.
A good show with some entertaining segments and nice matches.
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.
Sasha Banks and Charlotte continue to make a strong case for feud of the year in another title match, Jeri-KO takes on New Day in the ring and celebrities backstage, and Lana tells Roman Reigns to go to hell in a good episode of RAW.
Sami Zayn faces Curtis Axel in a rather slow match to start the show, but Neville takes on Jinder Mahal in a decent main event.
This year’s Clash of Champions was entertaining enough, but nothing seemed to get resolved in any of the storylines going into it.
Alicia Fox takes on Nia Jax during a fine kickoff show.
The cruiserweights debut (though the champ is absent), Jericho starts making a list, Rollins goes full babyface, and the main event is a pointless cage match in a pretty average yet entertaining episode of RAW.
Roman Reigns tries to work his way into the Universal Title match at Clash of Champions, Jinder Mahal debuts a new, peaceful attitude, a number one contender is decided for Charlotte’s title, and more on a pretty good episode of RAW.
Quantity over quality in terms of the matches on this show make it an okay but uneven watch.
The crowning of a new Universal Champ highlights a pretty good edition of RAW.
Despite the unfortunate injury to Finn Balor at Summer Slam, this was a good follow-up show to the PPV. A series of matches took place to determine four contenders who will fight to become the new Universal Champ, a probable new contender for Charlotte’s Women’s Title is introduced, and the Dudley Boyz gave what might be a retirement speech.
Sheamus and Cesaro start their best-of-seven series in a match that highlights a nice warm-up for Summer Slam.
The last RAW before Summer Slam was a decent show, though the wrestling suffered for the story lines heading into the PPV.
Sami Zayn takes on Curtis Axel and Jack Swagger faces Jinder Mahal in a pretty good episode of Superstars.
