WWE Raw (Episode 1,553)
Live from Grand Rapids, Michigan at Van Andel Arena
Aired February 27, 2023 on USA Network

[Hour One] Becky Lynch and Lita were shown arriving backstage while Kevin Patrick hyped their WWE Women’s Tag Team Title match against Iyo Sky and Dakota Kai for later in the show… Footage aired from the Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso, and Sami Zayn segment from Friday’s Smackdown… Patrick and Corey Graves were on commentary, and Mike Rome was the ring announcer…

Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa made their entrance. Jimmy started by telling the crowd that “The Bloodline is now in your city.” Jimmy said he knows people think there are cracks in The Bloodline. He said it may look that way from the outside, but family fights all the time. A “Sami” chant broke out.

Jimmy said that if you come for one member of The Bloodline, you come for all members of The Bloodline. He asked if Kevin Owens got one on The Bloodline at the Royal Rumble, then asked if the fans thought Zayn did at Elimination Chamber. Jimmy brought up Cody Rhodes, which triggered some “Cody” chants.

Jimmy asked the fans if they think Cody will get one on Roman Reigns at WrestleMania. Fans cheered. “Hell no,” Jimmy said. He added that Reigns will appear on Friday’s Smackdown. Jimmy said that he and Sikoa, who remained stone-faced throughout the segment, were there to remind everyone who runs the show.

“The Street Profits” Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins’ entrance theme interrupted Jimmy. The duo walked onto the stage with microphones in their hands. Ford and Dawkins spoke as they walked to the ring and acted like they were in awe of The Bloodline members.

Ford mentioned that Jey got a 90 rating in the new video game, then wondered where Jey was. Ford said he couldn’t blame Jey for not being there because he’d be tired if he was the bridge that kept The Bloodline together. The Profits entered the ring. Jimmy told them to keep Roman’s name out of their mouths. The Profits delivered their catchphrase and then punched Jimmy and Sikoa and cleared them from the ring heading into a commercial break… [C]

Powell’s POV: A forgettable opening segment. It was fine, but they didn’t really cover any new ground as far as The Bloodline saga is concerned. That said, it was effective in creating a hook to keep viewers watching through the break to see the match between the two teams while also including the plug for Reigns appearing on Smackdown.

1. “The Street Profits” Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins vs. Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa. The match started when the show returned from the commercial break. Patrick said Jey Uso was not in the building. The Profits performed a double dropkick to knock Sikoa off his feet. The heel duo came back when Sikoa put Ford down with a clothesline. [C]

Ford executed a standing moonsault on Jimmy and got a near fall. Ford followed up moments later with a crossbody block from the ropes for a near fall. Ford put Jimmy down with a spinebuster and then tagged Dawkins. They set up for a double team move on Jimmy, but Sikoa took out both Profits then hit the Samoan Spike on Dawkins and pinned him.

Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa defeated “The Street Profits” Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins vs. Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa in 11:35.

After the match, Sikoa wrapped a chair around the head of Ford and then went to the opposite corner. Sikoa charged, but Kevin Owens entered the ring and superkicked him. Jimmy ran in to help Sikoa, but Owens caught him with a kick and a Stunner before fleeing the ring…

Powell’s POV: An entertaining tag match. I was open to the idea of the Profits going over to set up a tag title match for television against the Usos, so I felt like there was a bit more mystery regarding the outcome than a lot of television matches.

The broadcast team set up footage from last week of MVP challenging Brock Lesnar to to face Omos at WrestleMania. A graphic questioned whether Lesnar would show up to respond to the challenge…

Patrick set up a Creed III sponsored clip that included Edge talking about his own comeback… [C] The broadcast team plugged the movie again, but they were interrupted by entrance music…

Brock Lesnar made his entrance. Furniture was set up inside the ring for the VIP Lounge. Lesnar took a seat on one of the couches and then MVP walked onto the stage with a mic in hand. Lesnar mockingly applauded from inside the ring.

MVP said this wasn’t how he envisioned it going when he invited Lesnar. Brock apologized and invited MVP to join him. MVP said he was good where he was. Lesnar said he had no beef with MVP. Lesnar said he’s all about business.

Lesnar said he was there to listen to MVP sell him and the people on a fight. MVP asked if they could just talk business and he wouldn’t have to worry about going to Suplex City. Lesnar said there would be no suplexes. The crowd booed. MVP took Lesnar at his word and entered the ring.

Lesnar recalled MVP calling him a coward, then said he wasn’t insulted. Lesnar told MVP to hype the fight. MVP stood up and ended up talking about how Lesnar couldn’t handle Bobby Lashley, yet for some reason he thinks he can handle the giant Omos. Lesnar grinned and nodded.

MVP said The Beast can destroy any man, but a giant will subdue and conquer a beast. MVP said Lesnar could suplex and F5 nearly any man, but he couldn’t do that to Omos. Lesnar said MVP did a good job and claimed he had goosebumps. Lesnar got MVP to high five him.

Lesnar accepted the challenge to face Omos at WrestleMania. Lesnar said they should shake on it and drink on it. Lesnar put his arm around MVP and they looked at the WrestleMania sign while Lesnar hyped the match. MVP offered champagne for their toast.

Lesnar said he’s a farmer and he brought the good stuff. Lesnar pulled out a flask. Lesnar took a big swig off the flask. MVP said he’d stick with the champagne if it was okay with Lesnar. The fans booed. Lesnar handed MVP the flask and asked if he was going to make him drink alone. MVP said absolutely not.

MVP asked what was in the flask. Lesnar said it was white lightning. MVP took a swig and ended up spitting it out on Lesnar. A “You f—ed up” chant broke out and was censored. MVP was apologetic. Lesnar put the flask away and wiped off his face and blew his nose with MVP’s pocket square and then gave him an F5…

Powell’s POV: Lesnar vs. Omos just doesn’t do anything for me. Perhaps it will play better to the casual viewers, but it just feels like a flat WrestleMania match for Lesnar.

Becky Lynch and Lita were interviewed on the backstage set by Cathy Kelley. They spoke about their desire to win the tag titles. Lynch said she doesn’t have a good reputation for playing well with others, but there’s no one she’d rather team with than Lita…

Cody Rhodes shown walking backstage while Patrick hyped his match against Chad Gable… [C]

A video package touted John Cena returning on next week’s Raw in Boston… Cody Rhodes made his entrance to a good reaction followed by the Alpha Academy duo…

2. Cody Rhodes vs. Chad Gable (w/Otis). There was a “Cody” chant during the opening seconds of the match. Cody performed an early sunset flip, but Gable escaped and applied an ankle lock, which Rhodes broke. Gable went to the ropes and Cody followed. Rhodes performed an inverted superplex from the middle rope. [C] Gable performed a dragon screw leg whip coming out of the break.

[Hour Two] Gable went for a top rope headbutt, which Rhodes avoided. Rhodes sold knee pain while performing some of his signature offensive moves. Cody performed a clunky looking Disaster Kick for a two count.

A short time later, Cody went for another Disaster Kick, but Gable caught him and performed a bridging German suplex for a two count. Gable went for a backslide and then hoisted up Cody and slammed him to the mat with a Cliffhanger DDT. Gable followed up with a top rope moonsault for a near fall.

Cody and Gable took turns going for hip-tosses. Cody got the better of it and sent Gable over the top rope. Rhodes performed a suicide dive. The broadcast team noted that Otis was nowhere to be found and seemed distracted.

Cody walked over to Otis, put his arm around him, and said, “She’s over there.” Otis said she’s very pretty. Otis snapped out of it and went after Cody, who tossed him over the barricade and into the front row. Rhodes performed a springboard Cody Cutter and then hit CrossRhodes for the win.

Cody Rhodes defeated Chad Gable in roughly 10:00.

After the match, Cody kissed the mat and then had a mic passed to him. Cody noted that we’re 33 days away from WrestleMania. He said he has yet to stand in the same ring as Roman Reigns. Cody said Reigns is on Smackdown on Friday. Cody said he’s ecstatic because he will be there too…

Powell’s POV: Another nice tease for Friday’s Smackdown. The match was laid out to be more competitive than I anticipated. Cody, who had a small cut on his forehead, still went over strong and the finishing sequence was strong. I continue top hope that creative will get behind Gable once Otis spins off into his modeling storyline with Maximum Male Models. On a side note, I was critical of the presentation of last week’s main event between Austin Theory vs. Edge. WWE has already done a much better job of setting the table for tonight’s WWE Women’s Tag Team Title match.

Backstage, Baron Corbin was interviewed by Byron Saxton, who conceded that things hadn’t been going his way. Saxton wrapped up the interview while making it seem like he was getting a cue through his earpiece. Corbin was upset. Saxton approached Kevin Owens, who said he didn’t need or want any help in taking down The Bloodline…

The broadcast team touted footage from Smackdown of Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio’s appearances on last week’s show. Graves set up a new WrestleMania Goes Hollywood video that featured Montez Ford and Bianca Belair doing their own version of The Titanic. Ford tried to take a selfie and dropped his phone in the water… [C]

Powell’s POV: We’ll see how the rest of these go, but I’ve been underwhelmed by the new WrestleMania Goes Hollywood videos compared to the classic versions.

“The Judgment Day” members Rhea Ripley, Dominik Mysterio, Damian Priest, and Finn Balor were shown backstage. They spoke while footage of Ripley and Dom on last week’s Smackdown was shown. Dom said Ripley has a match against Liv Morgan on Friday and he’ll be there, so maybe he and Rey Mysterio can have their chat. Ripley spoke about how she didn’t have to say a word to Charlotte Flair.

Balor spoke about his attack on Edge after last week’s main event while that footage was shown. Balor said Edge doesn’t get to say when things are over between him and Judgment Day. Balor said they could end things if Edge accepts his challenge for a WrestleMania match…

Otis was approached by Maxxine Dupri, Mace, and Mansoor. Dupri asked if he’d considered her offer. She said that if Otis had a match during Raw, they would love to be in his corner to observe. An excited Otis called out for Adam Pearce to give him a match…

Asuka made her entrance for her match against Carmella… An ad for Tuesday’s NXT showcased Tyler Bate vs. Carmelo Hayes… [C] Carmella made her entrance…

3. Asuka vs. Carmella. Asuka went for a hip attack against the ropes, but Carmella avoided it. Asuka tumbled to ringside. Carmella dropped to the floor and superkicked Asuka. [C] Carmella was in control coming out of the break, but Asuka changed that with a spinning back fist. Asuka threw a kick at Carmella, who rolled to the floor. Asuka delivered a sliding knee from the apron.

Back inside the ring, Asuka went for a top rope move that Carmella avoided. Carmella kicked Asuka and covered her for a near fall. Asuka caught Carmella in an inside cradle for a two count. Carmella caught Asuka in the Code of Silence, but Asuka slipped away and applied her new finisher moments later for the submission win.

Asuka defeated Carmella in 8:50.

After the match, Asuka took the mic and yelled before calling out Bianca Belair. The Raw Women’s Champion made her entrance in non-wrestling attire and entered the ring. Belair said she didn’t like Asuka’s tone when she called her out. Belair told Asuka that she’s the EST of WWE, and you can’t spell WrestleMania without EST.

Carmella returned and shoved Asuka into Belair. Asuka stayed down while Belair got back to her feet and looked at Carmella, who was talking smack as she backed her way up the ramp…

Powell’s POV: The match was fine. I just keep waiting for some character development with Asuka and there doesn’t seem to be much beyond the broadcast team telling us that it’s the most dangerous version of the character that we’ve seen in WWE. In fact, she yelled like old Asuka, which is the last thing I wanted to see. The post match angle with Carmella will presumably set her up with a television match against Belair. Here’s hoping that it also leads to the build to Belair vs. Asuka heating up because it’s been pretty flat thus far.

The broadcast team hyped Miz TV and the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship match… Piper Niven made her entrance for her match against Candice LeRae… [C] A sponsored Bronson Reed video package was shown…

Candice LeRae made her entrance. Nikki Cross peaked out from behind the video wall. LeRae noticed Cross, who was smiling as she followed LeRae to ringside…

4. Piper Niven vs. Candice LeRae. Nikki Cross stood at ringside. Niven performed a uranage slam and then followed up with a senton for a two count. LeRae rallied a short time later, but Niven caught her on the middle rope and shoved her to the floor. Niven went to ringside and toss LeRae back inside the ring, then grabbed Cross and threw her into the barricade. Niven returned to the ring and looked back at Cross. LeRae rolled up Niven and stole the pin…

Candice LeRae defeated Piper Niven in 2:30.

Powell’s POV: Man, the crowd was quiet for that match. LeRae just hasn’t connected as a babyface on the main roster.

Johnny Gargano was interviewed by Byron Saxton on the backstage ring set. Gargano said he was proud of his wife. Gargano recalled Otis approaching him in the locker room and telling him that he wanted hot action. Gargano said he was alarmed, but then he figured out that he wanted a match.

The Judgment Day faction interrupted Gargano’s interview. Priest said he laid out Gargano when he saw him last in the Elimination Chamber. Priest said he wanted to lay out Gargano again. Balor stepped up and said that if Otis didn’t squash Gargano, he would step up and finish the job himself next week…

The Miz made his entrance for the Miz TV segment… [C]

The Miz stood in the ring for his Miz TV segment. He spoke about his wife’s gift to him and said she’s already given him two children during the nine years they have been married. Miz said his guest would host WrestleMania and then did a drumroll and looked to the stage.

A graphic listed the Miz as the WrestleMania host. He said it would be more buzz worthy than Will Smith slapping Chris Rock. He also took issue with his wife having to ask because he said no one else was up for the task. Miz ran through the advertised WrestleMania matches and said no one could bring him down.

Seth Rollins made his entrance and joined Miz inside the ring while the crowd chanted his entrance song. Miz told the crowd that when his hand goes up, their mouths go shut. Miz scolded Rollins for ruining his special moment. Rollins cackled in response.

Rollins told Miz not to get his panties in a bunch. Rollins said he was there to congratulate Miz and didn’t want to rain on his parade. Miz said Rollins had rained on his parade for the past three weeks. Rollins said he Stomped Miz with his big red boots because Miz was being a bit of a jerk, and then he had to Stomp him three times last week because he was being a bit of a B-hole.

Miz said he’s not a B type of person, he is an A type of person. “So you’re saying you’re an A-hole,” Rollins said. Miz got upset and denied it. Rollins said he wasn’t trying to ruin Miz’s moment, he just had a favor to ask him.

Rollins said he’d been trying to get ahold of Logan Paul (the fans booed). Rollins said that since Miz taught Paul everything he knows, he though that Miz could get his phone out and get him on FaceTime. Miz played to the crowd and asked if they wanted him to call Paul for Rollins, then said no.

[Hour Three] Miz said he wouldn’t do anything that Rollins wanted him to do because Paul was Rollins’ problem. Miz boasted that he was going to WrestleMania while Rollins was just a goofball in a stupid jacket. Rollins superkicked Miz, whose phone fell to the mat.

Rollins picked up Miz’s phone, then opened his eye and held the phone up to it. Rollins took a seat in one of the Miz’s talkshow set chairs and then made the call.

Logan Paul answered the phone and immediately told Miz to stop calling him. “Surprise,” Rollins said. “The Miz is a little out of commission. I just wanted to call and see how your baby bro was doing.”

Rollins said he was sick of the cat and mouse game that Paul has been playing. Rollins challenged Paul to show up and stand face-to-face with him on next week’s Raw. Paul accepted the challenge. “It’s on, baby,” Rollins said. “One more thing, bye bye, bitch,” Rollins said before ending the call.

Miz started to show signs of life as Rollins was about to leave the ring. Rollins turned and put Miz down with another Stomp. Patrick hyped Rollins and Logan Paul meeting face-to-face next week while Graves said the headline is that Miz is hosting WrestleMania…

Backstage, Cathy Kelley approached “Damage CTRL” Bayley, Dakota Kai, and Iyo Sky. Bayley spoke about how they’d been on Raw, Smackdown, and live events. She said praised her team and said the titles are their legacy.

Austin Theory stepped into the picture as Damage CTRL walked away. Theory said he was upset that everyone was talking about John Cena rather than him. Theory brought up Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect.

Theory said his Hustle was Elimination Chamber, then spoke about being loyal to his title belt, and said he has a lot of respect for Cena. Theory said he would look Cena in the face next week and give him the respect that he deserves. Theory said the only thing he asks is that Cena return the favor…

Bobby Lashley posed on his platform and made his entrance for a match against Elias… The John Cena ad aired to promote his return for next Monday’s Raw… [C]

Powell’s POV: While WrestleMania doesn’t really need a host, Miz is a fine choice for that role and should do a fine job of hamming it up until someone (or multiple people) inevitably ruins his night. With Cena and Theory, and now Rollins and Paul sharing the ring, next week’s Raw is shaping up to be a big show.

Elias was in the ring with Lashley coming out of the break. Footage was shown from Smackdown of Bray Wyatt’s Firefly Funhouse…

5. Bobby Lashley vs. Elias. A tale of the tape was shown for the match because it was sponsored by Creed III. Elias attacked Lashley when the bell rang. Lashley quickly came back and bodyslammed Elias and then clotheslined him over the top rope.

Rick Boogs was shown watching a backstage monitor while taking notes. Lashley hoisted up Elias, who slipped away and caught him with a knee to the head. Back inside the ring, Lashley performed a Flatliner and then followed up with a spear before applying The Hurt Lock for the submission win.

Bobby Lashley beat Elias in 1:35.

After the match, Lashley got a microphone and told the crowd that he wasn’t in a good mood. He said he owned Brock Lesnar at Elimination Chamber, but Lesnar resorted to a low blow. Lashley said he won the match, but he wanted more more. He said that for proving his dominance over Lesnar, he gets Bray Wyatt playing kid games. Lashley said he doesn’t play little kid games. Lashley told Wyatt to keep his name out of his mouth “or I will hurt you.”

Bray Wyatt appeared on the big screen while Lashley was leaving the ring. Wyatt was in exercise mode and told everyone to pull up their pants and do the Muscle Man dance. Footage of Lashley was mixed in along with Huskus the pig puppet. Various images flashed on the screen, including Uncle Howdy, and then Wyatt was shown saying “run.” Lashley watched the end of the video and walked backstage…

Powell’s POV: Well, that happened. Ugh. While the finish of the match probably would have been the most complicated, the idea of Wyatt vs. Lesnar felt like a far more intriguing spectacle match than either Lesnar vs. Omos or Wyatt vs. Lashley.

Backstage, Chelsea Green asked Adam Pearce how she was supposed to know that there’s an Ottawa in Ontario (last week’s Raw host city) and not just in Illinois. Carmella entered the room. Pearce claimed he had a call to take and said that Carmella could face Bianca on Raw next week, then dismissed himself. Green and Carmella introduced themselves to one another and were getting along…

Otis made his entrance along with Maxxine Dupri, Mace, and Mansoor… [C] Patrick read through some advertising and then Johnny Gargano made his entrance to a flat reaction…

6. Otis (w/Maxxine Dupri, Mace, Mansoor) vs. Johnny Gargano. Otis caught Gargano with a nice spinning elbow and then splashed him. Gargano eventually sidestepped a charging Otis, who crashed into the corner. Gargano threw clotheslines and dropkicks at Otis, who finally dropped to one knee. Gargano superkicked Otis, who tumbled to the floor. Otis got up and looked at Dupri, then turned around and caught a diving Gargano and slammed him onto the broadcast table.

Mace held Gargano for Mansoor, but Dexter Lumis popped up in the front row and grabbed Mace from behind. Mace screamed. Mansoor intervened. Gargano superkicked Mansoor and then smiled when he ended up face to face with Dupri. Gargano ended up DDT’ing Otis on the apron and then in the ring before scoring the pin…

Johnny Gargano defeated Otis in 3:00.

Powell’s POV: The highlight of all of this was Graves labeling Gargano as Johnny Philanderer because he looked at Maxxine. Otis with Maximum Male Models actually sounds a lot more fun than Gargano actually has been since Dexter Lumis showed up.

Paul Heyman was interviewed backstage by Cathy Kelley, who asked him about Cody Rhodes saying he would appear on Friday’s Smackdown. Heyman said he loved it. Heyman started to sell the idea of Cody confronting Roman Reigns, but Kelley cut in and said that Cody never actually said he would confront Reigns. Heyman said Rhodes wouldn’t just show up, he’d crash the gates of the Island of Relevancy. Heyman said Cody would either confront Reigns, or Cody would be confronted by Reigns…

Graves hyped the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship match for after the break… [C] An ad for Smackdown hyped Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes appearing on Smackdown… Separate backstage shots were shown of the challengers and the champions heading into the main event…

The broadcast team recapped footage of the Lesnar and MVP segment, and then officially announced Lesnar vs. Omos for WrestleMania…

The following matches and segments were announced for next week’s Raw: Kevin Owens vs. Solo Sikoa, Seth Rollins and Logan Paul meeting face to face, Johnny Gargano vs. Finn Balor, Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair vs. Carmella in a non-title match, and John Cena’s return…

Becky Lynch and Lita made their entrance for the main event… [C] The WrestleMania 39 video aired. We are 33 days away from the two-night event… Damage CTRL made their entrance…

7. Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky (w/Bayley) vs. Becky Lynch and Lita for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles. Mike Rome delivered in-ring introductions for the championship match. Lynch and Sky started. They tagged out quickly and there were some cheers when Lita entered for the first time followed by a “Let’s go, Lita” chant.

The challengers made quick tags and performed double hip-tosses on both champions. Kai and Sky ended up in the challengers’ corner. Lynch dropped down on all fours and then Lita ran and launched off of Lynch’s back onto both opponents. Kai and Sky ended up at ringside. Lynch dove from the apron onto them. [C]

Sky performed an Asai moonsault onto Lynch. Sky brought Lynch back to the ring and covered her for a two count. A “Becky” chant broke out briefly. A short time later, Sky stomped the back of Lynch after tagging out. The referee didn’t count until Sky left the ring, so Graves pointed out that Sky was actually to blame for not getting out of the ring quicker.

Lynch started to show signs of life. Bayley threw one of the tag team titles in the ring. The referee cleared the belt from the ring and missed it when Bayley pulled Lita off the apron to prevent Lynch from making the tag. The champions got a near fall on Lynch.

Trish Stratus made her entrance and attacked Bayley at ringside. Lynch made a hot tag. Lita put Sky down with a couple of clotheslines, then performed a head-scissors takedown. Lita awkwardly spiked Sky’s head into the mat and covered her for a two count. Lita went to the ropes, but Sky pulled her down. Sky went for her moonsault, but Lita moved out of the way.

Lita kicked Sky and put her down with a Twist of Fate. Lita went up top for her finisher. Bayley tried to pull her down, but Trish pulled Bayley down to the floor and kicked her. Kai went after Lita, but Lynch pulled her to the apron and put her in the Disarmer. Lita hit the top rope moonsault on Sky and pinned her.

Becky Lynch and Lita defeated Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky in 13:25 to win the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles.

Lynch, Lita, and Trish celebrated in the ring. Pyro shot off while Graves closed the show by saying they were taking things back to the future…

Powell’s POV: Sky had to sell that Twist of Fate for an eternity, but the live crowd really enjoyed the title change. I thought we might get Lynch, Lita, and Trish vs. Damage CTRL at WrestleMania, but I’m not so sure if that’s the direction now that it feels like they are rushing Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler into tag team title contention.

Overall, while the show was a mixed bag, the creative forces did a nice job of making the main event feel important while also setting the table for next week’s bigger episode. I will be back shortly with my weekly same night Raw audio review for Dot Net Members (including our Patreon patrons). Let me know what you thought of Raw by grading the show below.

  1. Honestly at this point I’d rather Lesnar get an easy payday at Mania by doing the formula match against Omos instead of the rumored match against Gunther. As protected as he’s been (rightfully so) there’s no way they’d put Gunther over Brock.

  2. I felt bad for Miz at the end of that segment. Seth Rollins bragging about beating up Miz the last few weeks, interrupting his big announcement, kicking him for refusing to do Rollins a favor, using his phone, then returning to curb stomp him as he was trying to get his phone. They did a better job of making Miz a face tonight than they did a decade ago when that was the actual goal lmao

  3. Idk about the Wyatt vignette but it still gives me chills when he said “run” at the end. Sure would love to see him go more closely to his Wyatt Family persona.

  4. Pretty sure Bray is adamant that he won’t go back to the original Wyatt family persona because of Brodie’s passing.

  5. Why say “Run” if nothing happens? Lashley just walks away? He isn’t attacked by worms or puppets or whatever this is?
    I want to like Bray, and I hope he simplifies things, character wise. Spinning wheels.

  6. Aren’t we supposed to be in Wrestlemania season? What a zzz show. And no, before any WWE marks come at me, Dynamite hasn’t been good in two weeks either (keep JJ off TV!)

  7. The Sound of Silence by Simon & Garfunkel should be used exclusively for Gargano and LeRae’s entrance music.
