RAW was a very interesting affair, this week

So much happened on this week's episode of RAW that it's hard to keep track of everything. It was definitely a good show with some weaker moments. However, we must commend WWE for keeping our attention across three hours. Let's hope SmackDown Live can follow suit, as well.

The central theme running through this show was the Superstar Shake-Up, of course. There were some big names traded from SmackDown to RAW. We're certain there will be some big names headed to SmackDown as well.

You cannot go wrong with an episode like this. Let's hope that WWE carries the momentum of this episode into the weeks to come.

In any case, we present the 'Best and Worst' of RAW.

#1 Best: Changing the landscape of RAW

The SmackDown Live superstars who were traded to RAW will certainly shake things up!
The SmackDown Live superstars who were traded to RAW will certainly shake things up significantly

From Natalya to Baron Corbin to Jinder Mahal to The Riott Squad to Bobby Roode, every SmackDown Live superstar that came to RAW will change the dynamics of the red brand significantly. This week signals the end of the previous season of RAW and the beginning of a brand new season.

There were quite a few superstars whose names were mentioned online, who did not get a television appearance. Needless to say, RAW will be a very, very different show from next week. We will see new programs and fresh feuds take place.

We find the Rousey-Natalya chemistry particularly interesting. We wonder if it's leading to a feud between the women down the line.
