May 2. 2016 : St. Louis, Missouri

Overall a great RAW following Payback PPV. Setting up for Extreme rules, we will see what the matches will be in the coming weeks.

Highs:
Kevin Owens vs Sami Zayn
  • Kevin Owens, is there anything he cant do. I could watch KO and Zayn all day.
  • Mitch the fern being smashed over Dean Ambrose’s head by Chris Jericho.
Poor Mitch...he never saw it coming

  • Comedy relief provided by Goldust and R-Truth, much needed silliness.
  • Lil Natch getting air time.
  • “The Club” taking on Roman Reigns and the Usos, great match with an excellent ending.

The Club’s AJ Styles

Lows:
  • The Battle Royal for the number one contender for the US Title. Just not creative, it seems like an excuse for the lower roster members to get TV time without any real story or plot.
  • The New Day have gone stale and repetitive. Once upon a time they could get away with anything. Now nothing building on what they have developed. When are they gonna defend those titles?

Shane and Steph have also gone cold for me.  I mean who cares who is running RAW? Keep their air time short and sweet.
