WWE Raw Review (5/26/2014): Daniel Bryan Decides… Nothing

WWE Raw Review (5/26/2014): Daniel Bryan Decides… Nothing

Formerly known as the RAW Reaction… Welcome to the new show review format! WWE has been a mixed-bag as of late. Since coming off an excellent Wrestlemania 30 pay-per-view, and a pretty solid B-show at Extreme Rules, the company has struggled to find creative momentum. Last night’s go-home show for Payback didn’t fare much better.

Evolution

WWE RAW Reaction 5/12/2014: Daniel Bryan Says Goodbye

The show opened with Evolution… because, at this point, it’s obvious that their feud with The Shield is WWE’s top priority right now. I’m not entirely sold on the ‘we’re angry and want to challenge Evolution to a REMATCH even though we won cleanly’ logic. There’d be more money on the table (and more momentum

WWE RAW Reaction 5/6/2014: The Shield Succumbs to Evolution

Last night’s show opened with a 20-man over-the-top battle royal… and I couldn’t help but roll my eyes. We’ve seen how many of these matches in the last month? I get the storyline reasons. Still, witnessing yet another “get everybody in the ring at one time” match hurt my brain a little. These become less

Brie and Daniel

WWE Raw Reaction 4/28/2014: Ric Flair Returns

The show opened with John Cena in a steel cage, and while the visual was impressive, it’s the exact same thing we’ve seen for weeks. Cena’s promo was decent. And Bray Wyatt’s entertaining ‘Children of the Corn’ serenade was probably the creepiest thing that’s happened on Raw since The Undertaker sacrificed Stone Cold Steve Austin

WWE Raw Reaction 3/3/2014: “The Dumbest Thing I’ve Ever Seen”

It wasn’t a matter of if the hometown Chicago crowd was going to steal the show, but when. Luckily, WWE’s creative team was smart enough to recognize this, and they attacked the CM Punk issue head-on. As a result, Paul Heyman gave us one of the most tangible, addictive show openings in recent history. Notice

WWE Raw Reaction 2/24/2014: “Deal With It!”

Last night’s RAW kicked off big. Hulk Hogan came out, addressed his return, flexed his muscles, and got the crowd pumped. It was perfect. Hulk Hogan is a wrestling icon who looks even bigger standing in front of that large crowd only WWE can deliver. Naming him the guest host of ‘Mania makes sense. It’s

WWE Raw Reaction 1/27/2014: #YesMovement

Raw got off to a hot start last night with a great segment between Daniel Bryan and The Authority.  WWE smartly played to the crowd by letting Bryan opening the show – it essentially tackled the Royal Rumble problem head-on.  Seeing Bryan call Triple H out on his biased decision making, and hearing Triple H

Ric Flair Raw Old school

WWE Raw Reaction 1/6/2014: “We’ve Got Two Words For Ya”

Hey, whadoyaknow, Raw went Old School last night in an attempt to compete with the NCAA BCS Championship. Was it entertaining? Sure. Compelling? Unfortunately not. Worth watching over the fantastic game between Auburn and Florida State? Not in the slightest. But hey, that’s what DVRs are for… and if you actually tuned in to RAW
