If you tuned into Raw Monday night looking for good wrestling, you were not disappointed. If you tuned in looking for a laugh, your sides were left hurting. If you were looking for some decent storytelling, you even got a little of that too.
Raw delivered a pretty solid show Monday night, turning out an episode that featured some good in-ring action and some good promo segments. Yes, we go another stupid Erick Rowan match, and the “fist fight” did not go off how it was billed. But Aleister Black & Buddy Murphy once again stole the show. Drew McIntyre staked a claim for more cheers from fans. Becky Lynch found a spark to ignite her competitive fire.
However, we also had to endure Sarah Logan being obliterated again by Charlotte Flair. Bobby Lashley & Rusev squared off yet again, but don’t worry, this won’t be their last match. And next time, they’ll have partners to tag in. And the latest chapter in the Andrade/Rey Mysterio feud will be written soon, but it did not take a logical turn.
