There was a huge void last night with the absence of both John Cena and The Rock, and the show just seemed a bit weak without its Champion and his WrestleMania challenger present. The video package that was put together was impressive, but this is the Main Event of the biggest show of the year. It should be highlighted every week with each Superstar involved, live on television, advancing that storyline and building it to the level it should be. This feud lost some steam last night and needs to be a huge part of the show next week.
-The Shield's triple powerbomb on Big Show was downright sick. The back of Show's head hit pretty hard. Looked painful.
-Team Rhodes Scholars' rendition of "Oh you didn't know?" was hilarious. They should stay together, and get more TV time each week.
-I checked out the WWE Active section on the WWE app for the first time last night. It's very cool and shows an ongoing match during the entire commercial break.
-It looks like Johnny Curtis bought a ton of new gear for this gimmick. I sure hope he debuts eventually. His bit with Naomi was a bit awkward.
-The Bellas are back! They must have missed their boyfriends and were sick of the high school circuit and Comic Cons.
-Interesting to feature John Cena's divorce in the Rock/Cena video package. It definitely had an impact.
-There were entirely too many WWE Movie previews last night. #StraightToDVD
-Michael Cole definitely took notes on how Jim Ross used his commentary skills to build characters while a Superstar is in the ring. He always makes it a point to discuss personality/background/etc. in an interesting way.
Overall, last night's episode of RAW was solid throughout. One of the best of the year in my opinion, which is odd considering both Cena and Rock were not present. Aside from the endless Movie Previews, we saw another good mix of quality matches and storyline advancement as we head towards WM29. The Main Events are all set, but I am still waiting to see what undercard storylines will unfold. Hopefully we find out more next week.
That's all for me ladies and gentleman, thanks so much for reading. Please let me know what you think about last night's RAW!
