20 Reasons Why Last Night's WWE Raw Was An Absolute Mess

Lana and Erick Rowan highlight this unintentional comedic masterpiece.


There was some legitimately good content on last night's episode of WWE Raw. Not a lot, but some.

Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair united to face the Kabuki Warriors in a bout that got plenty of time to yield fun action, with Asuka and Kairi Sane successfully defending their Women's Tag Team Championships. Drew McIntyre and Andrade are moving up the ladder after quick, decisive victories. WALTER and Imperium were on a main roster show. Humberto Carrillo pinned AJ Styles in the main event, despite missing out on a Team Raw spot at Survivor Series.

The rest of the show, unfortunately, veered from boring to "unintentionally hilarious" and back again, often on a segment-to-segment basis. This was a wild ride. Raw is sometimes at its most entertaining when the entertainment is perverse, and while "so-bad-it's-good" still means "bad," how can you not laugh at what Lana, Rusev, Erick Rowan, and others gave us here? It had that trainwreck appeal that WWE has so regularly delivered in 2019, with the added attraction of an oddball Manchester, England crowd who didn't give a damn how they were supposed to respond.

Let's swim up Sh*t Creek and see if we come up clean...
