  1. Worst audience in the history of Monday Night Raw. I didn’t watch the first hour and I couldn’t care less. The most important thing about the show, if anything, was Liv Morgan being legitimately injured by Brie Mode! (Shitty music.) Otherwise, why should I care about anything Raw? Why should care about Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Braun Strowman, Drew Mcintyre and even Dolph Ziggler all being part of the soap opera called “Roman Reigns and his path to the top of Forever”, feat. Brock Lesnar? Just like Mr. Powell has pointed out week in week out, a small group of guys have taken over every single Championship belt in the red brand and a change won’t happen any soon. Why should I care if Brawn Strowman, the most popular monster, talented and charismatic monster I’ve ever seen gets attacked from behind by two guys and his fair (kayfabe) retaliation means a heel turn nowadays? And I have no words for the rest of the roster because they are meant to fill two hours of a TV show having the same old nonsense matches with the same old nonsense finishes (ROLLUP OF DEATH!). If the most exciting thing surrounding Raw today is the speculation of Shawn Michaels coming out of retirement, that just speaks volumes about the current situation of the red brand.

    Worst of all, Smackdown, which is consistently developing good to great rivalries (albeit some trouble in the middle-card), is treated like a C-show -the most prestigious male and female titles in the industry are defended in the second hour of a four-hour PPV/Network Special.

    Worst audience in the history of Monday Night Raw. I hope Smackdown keeps growing better just like in 2016 and once again carries the company, whether some McMahon like it or not.

  2. Hey I agree with Eduardo. Smackdown right now is the more compelling show.y only beef is not knowing what to do with Nakamura and Asuka both squandered opportunities with both. Charlotte vs Becky is great. Miz and Daniel Bryan good stuff
    even Joe and AJ minus the family stuff is great work
