Best and worst of RAW- 10th December, 2018
I say this as a WWE fan and not one of the million detractors of the product on the internet that hurl abuses at the company, every week. For the last two weeks, RAW hasn't really been a good show. Therefore, I loved the fact that this week felt like a fresh start once again. RAW was much better than usual, in my opinion.
Of course, it did begin to drag across three hours but can you sit through anything for three hours? Most movies these days are under three hours long, and they're written after months of creative brainstorming. So, it wasn't the perfect show by any means.
Let's just give them the benefit of the doubt because it's clear that the lack of star power without Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns is hurting RAW. RAW is trying their best to get back on the right path and for what it is, it's a start.
So, let us analyse the good, bad and ugly from this week's show.
#1 Best: The reset
When the ratings came in last week, I'm guessing those in WWE realised that the product wasn't as good as they thought it was. They knew that it was time for a reset. And because of this, they acknowledged their error at the top of the show. Only they pinned the poor booking of the weekly show on Constable Corbin.
Rollins was put in the position of the man leading the charge, to make a big change. This was a breath of fresh air. His feud with Ambrose had grown a little cold.
This would lead to a TLC match in the main event. But more importantly, across the show, it seemed like WWE took the pain to put in the extra effort.
Thumbs up, guys!
