Are you sure I'm winning the Rumble? That does'nt seem right.....

Looking at the Seth Rollins/McIntyre match, their writing continues to be garbage at the small things. Seth should have just let Dolph interfere, the ref was looking straight at him and it would have been a DQ.

No stip of Seth must pin or submit him, no McIntyre distracting the ref, just Seth and Dolph been super stupid.

I feel like Corbin's being prepped for something big. Probably a feud with Roman or Strowman post-SummerSlam.

It does feel like Corbin/Balor is meant to set up something bigger for Summerslam (or after). I have to imagine it's related to something related to the AUTHORITY, given Corbin's current gimmick. Maybe there will be a feud going into Summerslam over control of Raw?

The pull apart brawl was pretty good. Not as good as Lesnar vs Undertaker but a decent imitation.

Nope! Roman vaguely alluded to his existence, by saying he was on to bigger things after Lashley.

A line that makes Lashley look like a chump, and if Roman wins this Sunday, a somehow even bigger chump!

says a lot about wwe booking that "nakamura vs styles" sounded like a marquee dream match a year ago but now it's just another midcard thing that ends in dick punching and it happens constantly.

They didn't even mention Lesnar at all during the show nor when they mentioned Ronda going into the UFC hall. It could be part of a work to keep the Lesnar doesn't care angle going or it could be Vince really is pissed right now

I was more impressed that it managed to be both the most looked-forward-to match on Mania and simultaneously one of the most underwhelming matches on Mania. Would have said the most underwhelming match but I definitely remember people hyping up the Bryan+Shane/Owens+Zayn tag match as something that would be great despite Shane's involvement

I turned on Raw to see Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley staring at each other like they were having a poop-holding contest. I changed the channel and didn't look back.

They're good at making AJ fight the same guy for 6-9 months. I expect AJ vs Kevin Owens somehow this month.

Thinks It's All Real

It is amazing how my viewing of Raw has changed so much in the past few years. These days, I literally go to the WWE YouTube page after the show, look at the thumbnails of each segment, and don't even click on any of the loving videos anymore. It's like... nothing matters.

There are 20 segments posted to the channel from Raw.

6 segments are Reigns/Lashley related
4 segments are Bliss/Nia/Rousey related
2 segments are Mojo related
1 has Jinder Mahal in it

Of the matches I see, I assume that Mojo/Jose was boring and went nowhere, that Hardy/Bo didn't matter. Ember/Liv most likely ended with Ember winning.

Why should I watch any of this?

I somewhat follow along with whats happening just based on these threads and every time I actually put aside the time to tackle a Raw like once every few months it amazes me how people have the stamina to watch it every week. It feels like such a colossal waste of time for everyone involved but if people are still enjoying it then shine on you crazy diamonds. At best I can see it as background noise while you do something else but they don't bother trying to keep you invested at all.

Also as far as watching RAW goes, just lol anyone who doesn't "watch" it as background noise while doing something else so you can check out if the segment is bad (most of it) and pay attention for any good parts (Seth)

It's supposed to be for who gets to fight Brock but they're afraid to pull the trigger on officially announcing that. Even in promos they're acting like Brock's name is Lord Voldemort and they can't speak it.

While I know they are being very well compensated financially, it has to get on Seth's and AJ's nerves that they are consistently the MVPs and still take a back seat to a guy that chokes in the top spot and gets booed almost every night.
