Botches

  • Triple H made an obvious error in his opening promo and tried to play it off. It seemed like something the Triple H of the DX days could have dealt with better. But he wasn’t as heavily scripted in those days either.
  • Braun Strowman vs. Baron Corbin was good for Strowman getting revenge for Elimination Chamber. But it’s a match that everyone is tired of seeing. The match was not bad, we just need closure on this feud.
  • Nia Jax got too much mic time again.

 

Bodyslams

  • The surprise NXT takeover of RAW was fantastic. The best performers of NXT had an opportunity to shine on RAW, and absolutely stole the show.
  • Ricochet.
  • King Ricochet.
  • The One and Only.
  • Aleister Black.
  • Johnny Gargano.
  • Tommasso Ciampa.

This episode of RAW brought the hottest talents of NXT directly into the spotlight, and they delivered. Ricochet, Aleister Black, Johnny Gargano, and Tommasso Ciampa have been consistently tearing down houses in NXT and any one of them could be the true Superstar the company needs. With the loss of Roman Reigns and a plethora of injuries across the roster, the male face of the company is still an open position. These men are the kind of talents that should make the complacent men nervous and could make the bottom of the card unemployed. One thing is for certain. These men cannot possibly make the show any worse.
