There was no Goldberg this week on Raw. Nor was there Brock Lesnar. However, this meant that the younger talent had a chance to shine and they performed to the best of their ability. While this wasn’t the perfect show by any stretch of the imagination, there were more positive moments than negative ones.
Sadly, we’ve now become accustomed to the fact that whenever there’s a Charlotte Flair vs Sasha Banks match on Raw; Sasha is picking up the victory. This is presumably to keep Charlotte’s winning streak intact on pay per view, presumably for a later day pay off.
Enough rambling. Let’s move to the action then, shall we?
#1 Worst: Botch after botch
There were so many botches today, that it was hard to keep track. Kevin Owens surprisingly made a massive botch in the opening segment when he had trouble saying ‘Universal Championship’. Jericho managed to cover for him by saying that English wasn’t even really Kevin Owens’ first language (which is true).
Then, during a passionate promo between Sami Zayn and Mick Foley, Foley’s teeth would fall out (he mentioned the same in a tweet later during the show).
And Mr. Botchmaster himself, Michael Cole would get confused between Sasha Banks and Charlotte in the main event. Thankfully, Corey Graves did correct him live on air.
