Stomping Grounds, which is the next pay-per-view of WWE, is set to take place on Sunday. The anticipation was high for the last RAW before Stomping Grounds. It was a good edition of the red brand after an ordinary show last week.


Baron Corbin toiled hard to find a guest referee this week and the wait continues until Sunday. The Women's Tag Team Titles were on the line against Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross. Ricochet overcame four other Superstars and will face Samoa Joe for the United States Championship at Stomping Grounds.

Roman Reigns dismantled Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre, while the New Day defeated the team of Baron Corbin, Kevin Owens, and Sami Zayn. The Viking Raiders beat two local competitors and The Usos pinned Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson.

We saw an action-packed episode of the flagship show with some stupendous segments, however, it could have been better. Here we discuss three mistakes WWE made on RAW this week. 

#3 Too many Wild Card entrants

Vince McMahon introduced the Wild Card Rule after Superstar Shake-Up. Only four Superstars are allowed to show up on the other brand through Wild Card Rule but the reality is different. Since introducing the rule, more than four Superstars have been appearing on the other brand regularly which diminishes the idea of the brand split.

Eight SmackDown Live Superstars showed up on the red brand this week which is double the allotted number of the Wild Card Rule. Apart from the WWE Champion Kofi Kingston, the SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley and the SmackDown Tag Team Champions Erick Rowan and Daniel Bryan were the notable names on RAW. Kevin Owens, Big E, Xavier Woods, and Roman Reigns were the other Superstars to appear through the Wild Card Rule. Judging by the scenario every week, the company might end the brand split soon.
