How did this week rate?
I actually may be one of the few that enjoyed the story told by the women’s gauntlet match. Nia dominates through all the women, but Sasha holds on JUST long enough to tap an exhausted Nia. I like it. Old fashioned story telling is missing in today’s product. Joe/Lesnar is gonna be epic as well.
They did an awesome job hyping up Brock vs. Joe and Braun vs. Roman, while also getting Sasha from a 0 to a 10 in a week thanks to the gauntlet match. It was an efficient use of time, although the Goldust-Truth stuff did take a downward turn with their feud getting no reaction in front of the live crowd despite outstanding promo work from both guys for a month.
Joe choking out Brock is highlight reel material, and very well done. Everyone saw the Enzo & Cass bit coming, but it was still well done. The Raw woman put on a good show, especially Nia. With the MITB rematch tomorrow, it will be interesting to back to back nights of women in the main event.
WWE has two programs on Raw with a lot of hype – Reigns/Strowman and Lesnar/Joe. However there was another god awful segment with Miz TV and the Ball family.
