If ever more proof of the impact Paul Heyman has had on Raw's layout was needed, just look at the closing segment of Monday's episode. Frozen out ex-205 Live star Cedric Alexander was used as the show's lasting visual after unmasking and revealing that (shock) he wasn't actually some placid janitor with a lame leg.
This is a big improvement over Alexander's recent fortunes, and it will hopefully lead to some sort of sustained, slow-burning push.
There's nothing slow-burning about this 18-entry romp through some things you might've missed on the WWE flagship this week. The increased emphasis on believable in-ring action and straightforward storytelling has made Raw a more enjoyable program over the past fortnight, and that continued in Newark.
Here, you'll find Baron Corbin no-selling everything, Ricochet selling his ass off, heels ordering fans to do their bidding, some subtly brilliant booking before this Sunday's Extreme Rules pay-per-view and a fair few mini-botches, one coming for a guy you wouldn't expect.
There are also commentary lies, some original ECW references and fans being d*cks. Sorry, New Jersey, but it's true...
