Best and worst of RAW- 14th January 2019
RAW was a very entertaining episode this week, in my humble opinion. It started with tragedy for Braun Strowman as he was removed from Universal title contention. It ended with Finn Balor standing tall and triumphant. Most of the show in the middle was pretty darned good.
Overall, I would have to rate this show a thumbs up. Of course, I understand how no two professional wrestling fans can usually agree on the same thing and therefore, invite you to leave your comments. Let me know if you agree or disagree with my assessment.
I always love a show that ends with a feel-good moment. Also, I wonder just how many more appearances John Cena will do before he is off to film his movie.
That's a long enough preview, in my opinion. It's time to get right down to it and analyse this show.
#1 Best: Balor vs. Brock Lesnar
Finn Balor has always enjoyed crowd support from the WWE Universe. I just think that somehow, he's been relegated to the back of the line, because he doesn't size up to other bigger players. And this is especially true because he is on RAW, which is the sports entertainment show of WWE. Had he been on SmackDown Live, it would have been a different story.
Balor stood tall at the end of the night and Cena put him over. In many ways, this was an even more significant moment than him facing Brock Lesnar at the Rumble. This was a passing of the torch.
Will Balor go on to defeat Brock Lesnar for the title? I don't think so.
But this is certainly a well-deserved moment in the spotlight for him.
