Jan 22, 18, 08:33 PM #4That was the perfect opening.
Jan 22, 18, 11:31 PM #5Honestly, I think it was a let down. Also tired of seeing Strowman destroy everything and everyone in his way but yet he never gets touched.

Jan 23, 18, 09:06 AM #8The good:
The opening segment was by far the best of the show with the McMahon's and Austin.
I also liked Elias & John Cena. The Drifter is fast becoming one of my favorite stars. He has the crowd eating out of his hand.
The ongoing card game in the back was also funny, and I didn't think it was going to be.
DX & Balor Club was also pretty good, but I hated seeing The Revival being used as the stooges for the segment.
Reigns/Miz Intercontinental Title match was solid, especially with Reigns losing. The bad thing is that just frees Reigns up for the inevitable match with Brock at WM34. Yuck.
Asuka attacking her tag partners after their victory.
The Undertaker. I love him, and I hated that Reigns beat him at WM33, but his departure after that match was the perfect exit for him. His promo last night was so confusing.
Bray Wyatt/Matt Hardy. Ugh.
The Dudleys. I couldn't care less for them and felt they got too much air time.
The final segment. The Braun/Brock/Kane story is so lame and predictable.

Jan 23, 18, 12:41 PM #10Rumor was that an angle was going to be set up for Cena and Undertaker to start their feud to wrestle mania which would be Undertaker's last. However, with Samoa Joe injured they used Elias in his spot to set up a spot at the Royal Rumble. In the meantime before 'Mania Cena and Joe were going to feud which is why they did the angle with Elias since there was no history. (Joe had called out Cena a few weeks prior). The Undertaker/Cena angle will now be at a later date.

I watched more of Raw than I have in a long time last night, generally because of the older superstars being on the show.

I loved the opening, but the jumping back and forth between 2 venues was a bit much. I'm a fan of Elias, and I think the Miz is pretty solid in his own right.
