  • Zelina Vega gets another shot at Asuka's Raw Women's Championship after losing absolutely 100% clean at the PPV last night.
  • Big Show, Christian, HBK and Ric Flair will open the show with WWE Champion Drew McIntyre tonight to celebrate Drew's win over Randy Orton in an Ambulance match.
  • Jerry Lawler will interview Rey Mysterio's family about their tensions last week in the wake of a terrible, terrible Seth Rollins segment.
  • Kevin Owens faces Aleister Black AGAIN in a singles match. No word on if Black has a horrific eye injury again this week or not.
  • Locusts of Dissent and contracted WWE Superstars Retribution will not be on the show tonight because they are not medically cleared (i.e they were in contact with somebody with COVID, the global pandemic that WWE still refuses to mention by name).

Well I mean I guess it makes a nice change from,"Babyfaces are losers without friends, heels have lots of buddies who look out for and support each other."

I didn't see Clash of Champions but did Big Show seriously sneak up on Orton and pull down his mask so he'd know who the giant attacking him was?

IIRC they did a camera wheeling around and Big Show was there (I don't even remember a mask) and then he grabbed Orton and chokeslammed him. Then he disappeared.

1997 was arguably the best year in North American wrestling history, and possibly world wrestling history, absolutely.

What's sad is, to steal a line from Dave Meltzer, that WWE is running off the fumes of that year to this day.

I've never understood the point of a RAW rematch of a championship match from the night before

If the champ wins, it feels pointless. If the champ loses, then the PPV match feels pointless

The "excuse" is that Zelina attacked Asuka postmatch so there needs to be a rematch which... well it makes less than zero sense, somehow.

Edit: Oh what a shock, the exact same result as last night.

Because even at their best WWE is just going through the motions. They don't want to end feuds because then they have to think of new feuds but then they have to think of ways to keep the old feud going and uuuuuugh just have 'em loving wrestle each other again. This is what happens when you have a professional wrestling company owned and run by a man who hates professional wrestling so much he can't even bring himself to say the phrase 'professional wrestling'.

I just don't understand that they have a huge roster and it's always the same people facing the same people every week.

I think Drew is great, and it sucks he finally gets his big run during a global pandemic and no crowds.

Edit: Andrade you've lost like 15 matches in the last 2 weeks.

Nobody is supposed to remember any part of last week that isn't explicitly mentioned in this week's episode, far less any other weeks. If you need to remember it, we'll remember it for you wholesale.

I turned on RAW randomly and hey... Keith Lee vs La Sombra isn't gonna make me turn the TV off.

But its good to see they broke up one of the acts I was enjoying last time I watched. I'm sure they'll all be better off solo.

You have more fun as a follower. But you make more money as a leader.
