Monday Night RAW, July 18th

Another flat show, got a bit spicy at the end just when the live coverage ended, sigh…

The McMahons Name Raw, SmackDown General Managers

Have to admit those were good choices. I was so grateful it wasn’t any of the ones that came campaigning last few weeks.

Sadly it was way too long for what it was worth, but that was the tale of most of the show.

Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn and Cesaro

We’ve seen this 4 face each other so often now, that it’s affecting the interest in the matches. They perform at a high level as always, but it’s starting to get old. They can excel with other opponents. I hope the draft fixes this.

7/10

Alberto Del Rio vs. Darren Young

If this was meant to show Young as a real threat to the title, it failed miserably. Seemed like another fluke, like the way he won his #1 contenders spot.

He can do it, but it’s too early.

5/10

The Club Squares Off Against The New Day, John Cena, Enzo Amore, Colin Cassady

This was so long. Too much waste of time. It has it’s spots, but stretched way too much.

Still impressed Xavier is level 21 Pokemon Trainer, I’m barely 7. At least we are  on the best team, Team Valor!

12-Man Tag Team Match

For a match with so many starts it was played right, almost made me forget about the agony prior to it. This is one of those exceptions when this big matches do work out.

8/10

Baron Corbin vs. Sin Cara

Not much to see here. I guess a potential Corbin/Kalisto feud. We’ll see.

5/10

Charlotte and Dana Brooke vs. Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks

I guess two feuds progressed here, but the match suffered because of that. It was pointless to see them at the PPV if they fought here.

5/10

Zack Ryder and Dolph Ziggler vs. Rusev and Sheamus

Former League of Nation members tore through the competition.

5/10

Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins (WWE Championship)

A great match with a messy finish. It running out of the air didn’t help either.

Then it was reversed as a draw later on the Network.

9/10

Conclusion

For the show prior to the draft it felt flat, just see score below. An amazing main event, the rest was just average.

Hope they are just holding back for after the draft, but they placed the PPV at a lower level than the draft itself.

6/10
