Monday Night RAW, February 29th

After a mediocre show that benefited from Shane’s return, there was a lot of pressure on keeping the ball rolling. They could have done it but didn’t.

Triple H and Dean Ambrose Face Off

Although it went longer than needed, this had a lot of potential, but I think they didn’t use it well. This would have been a way better main event specially looking at the rest of the show.

The League of Nations seems to be their enforcers but they are barely considered a threat.

Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks (No. 1 Contender’s Match)

Although a draw (triple threat match at Wrestlemania) was the right choice here. I felt the match was mediocre. We’ve seen better matches from these two.

6/10

The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler

Still trying to figure out what was the purpose of this.

3/10

Stephanie McMahon’s Acceptance Speech

I always enjoy watching Steph perform and this was one of her best performances.

The Lucha Dragons vs. Sheamus and Rusev

Nothing special here besides some nice aerial spots. Kalisto needs an opponent/feud soon. Time is running out.

5/10

Ryback vs. Adam Rose

Not much to see here besides a heel turn for Ryback. Hopefully it comes along with a good push.

5/10

The New Day vs. Chris Jericho and AJ Styles

I’m glad they are pushing this feud. I know AJ fans think he deserves something like a title shot but I disagree. He haven’t proved anything to me yet. Some potential, but many botches and missed spots. he needs time.

Looks like they dropped the League of Nations vs. the New Day idea, I’m glad they did. This could be way better.

8/10

Undertaker Confronts Vince McMahon

Was just weak. There’s a lot of work needed to make this potentially big match make sense. What’s in for Taker?

Jey Uso vs. Bubba Ray Dudley

Glad they are having this feud, specially keeping the Usos away from the belt. Nothing against them, but have been just too often.

Sadly the match didn’t perform as it should. Too many short matches!

3/10

Big Show vs. Kevin Owens

The idea of seeing these two at Wrestlemania is scary. The way their matches are going it seems they’ll end up in some kind of no DQ or one of those matches where there must be a winner. OK for RAW or Smackdown, not big enough for Wrestlemania.

3/10

Brie Bella vs. Naomi

Nothing special here.

5/10

Alberto Del Rio vs. Dean Ambrose

Nothing extremely special here, but it was OK. The best part was at the end.

7/10

Conclusion

Another mediocre show with potential. I see WWE creative opening many doors with Ambrose, Reigns, HHH and Brock. They know they might need them. The rest of the card looks either weak or empty which is scary. They should have realized HHH vs. Ambrose is so much better in so many ways, but they lost that train or did they?

The show suffered of so many short worthless matches. Really felt more like a Smackdown than a RAW.

Shane where are you?
