The 5 Things we Learned from Raw

Monday’s episode of WWE RAW, featuring the final hype for WrestleMania 32, drew 3.77 million viewers, according to This is up from last week’s 3.399 million viewers for a show with Dean Ambrose vs. Braun Strowman in the main event.

For this week’s show, the first hour drew 3.82 million viewers, the second hour drew 3.85 million viewers and the final hour drew 3.64 million viewers.

Raw Wastes No Time Destroying an Announce Table Michael Cole says, “Welcome to Monday Night Raw” Then we get GONG! as the Undertaker’s bell tolls. In his best grawl Taker says, “This WrestleMania will NOT be my last.” and he continues with “But WrestleMania is my yard, hell in a cell is my house and at WrestleMania Shane McMahon will REST IN PEACE.” Then, Shane O Mack appears on the ramp. After a few remarks, Shane then walks to the ring like he is not afraid of the Deadman and climbs in the ring and stares him down. Then they begin to scrap outside the ring. Taker clears the announce table, gets Shane positioned for the last ride through the table but Shane slips out. Shane then hits the Undertaker with a television monitor, which puts Undertaker on the announce table, then this happens…..

I honestly thought I knew who was going to win this match, I thought it was going to be Taker. Now I am not so sure. This segment did exactly what it was suppose to do and make you want to order WrestleMania if only just for this match.

It is Official Y2J vs AJ at Mania- Zack Ryder defeats Chris Jericho with a little help from A.J. Styles. Jericho is the best at having great programs with people, and this one is no different. In the span of 2 months people have gone from loving to hating Y2J while knowing all along he is the best in the world at what he does. It is 12 WrestleMania’s against 1. This match has the potential to steal the show. Do you understand what I am saying to you right now?

Raw starts off like a house of fire, but cooled off quickly, and the embers barely glowed as the night went on.

Speaking of Zack Ryder, we also learned that he has now been thrown into the Intercontenential Championship Ladder Match with Sin Cara, Dolph Ziggler, Sami Zayne, The Miz, Stardust and Kevin Owens. I guess none of the original 6 participants wanted to be pinned so they inserted Ryder. 7manLadderMatch

The Divas Revolution is Nothing More Than Terrible Marketing for Total Divas! I really had high expectations for this segment, then they fell flat. I was hoping that Bailey would be brought up to the main roster just in time for a small role in WrestleMania, but instead we were given this….

3 Segments and Each Got Progressively Worse HHH vs. Roman Reigns was given 3 different segments for build up. They should have stopped with the 1st one. HHH and Stephanie did a great promo, then Reigns came out, cleared the ring, and was a decent segment. But, they could not stop there. Reigns was doing an interview when he was interrupted by Bubba Ray Dudley and predictably suckered into a 3 on 1 assult by HHH and the Dudleys. Then the final segment was reserved for HHH and Reigns again, as if they are force feeding us this match. Another promo, that was old and boring. I was almost glad when Reigns came out. Then in the midst of the fight the heels and faces empty out. There was a good Undertaker like moment when Reigns flew over the top rope and onto to the faces as Raw goes off the air to the theme of Roman Reigns. ReignsVShhh

Closing Thoughts- No Shawn Michaels, no John Cena, no Mick Foley, no Rock. All disappointments. The show itself was an average Raw except for the first two segments. It was nothing special, it certainly was not a Raw that was the final episode before Wrestle-Mania.
