MACE & T-Bar kick off the show against Drew & Braun Strowman after a lengthy recap of last weeks RAW encounter, Drew and Braun argue before the match which will surely unfold in this match must like the last week, in-fact most of this RAW just fits in with this cycle even with Drew coming out to help Braun after he decides he wants it to be a handicap match. After McIntrye helps Strowman he eats a running powerslam to set up the bout later in the night and after Braun Strowman secures the win he is placed in the Title match at Wrestlemania Backlash.
Riddle and Randy Orton teamed up this week to go over Shelton Benjamin & Cedric Alexander in a good match.
The Six man tag match on the male side got some decent time after the New Day and Priest threw tomatoes during an Elias and Miz & Morrison concert, say what you will about The Miz he is having fun annoying everyone and is good at it. The New Day and Damian Priest get the win with a small package.
Humberto Carrillo got some revenge on Sheamus reversing his fortunes and coming out on top this week, good to see them actually using someone different in the roster so interesting to see where this goes.
Charlotte Flair apologises for her suspension which didn’t even really last a week? and demands an apology from the Ref and gets it in a really nice touch. Flair as a heel is working wonderfully and hopefully they let her just keep hamming it up and getting her way while using underhanded tactics and tantrums.
Alexa’s Playground is once again a highlight of the show and she claims that Lily doesn’t like any of the WWE women’s roster and she is ready to unleash her onto them.
Sadly this was once again a mostly poor episode of RAW, admittedly they are some glimmers of hope; mainly in the undercard and Women’s division, Drew McIntyre is great and the Hurt Business feud is moving along nicely with, hopefully a decent pay off come Backlash, Charlotte Flair is a highlight and the less said about the Nia Jax shenanigans the better.
Still taking a while getting used to the new commentary team but it was a little improvement over last week- maybe the new commenter just need some time to settle into the WWE system- Corey and Byron Saxton are putting in a shift here.
