This week's edition of WWE Monday Night RAW (29th April 2019) saw a lot of contrasting moments. Right from AJ Styles and Seth Rollins brawling at the end of a contract signing to Bray Wyatt stealing the show yet again, last night's episode had it all.

Just like every year, the post-WrestleMania season sees a downward slump when it comes to creativity on the main roster shows. Last night's RAW was no exception, where every segment felt by-the-numbers (no matter how good or bad) except for the Firefly Fun House bit, of course.

Let us take a look at some interesting observations from this week's episode of Monday Night RAW...


#3 Why Sami Zayn's cleverly written segment did not work this time around

On paper, plotting an entire segment around using the word 'Psychological Entitlement' against fans might seem like an interesting idea.

However, the audience did not react accordingly during Sami Zayn's promo this week. It is to be noted that Sami Zayn has been part of situations before where he failed to connect with the fans, whether as a heel or as a babyface.

I personally liked the content of the promo, especially the part where Sami titled himself as the 'Critic of Critics', but we don't see a clear path of where this is leading to. The character Sami Zayn has been quite vocal about his newfound dislike for the WWE Universe. But after 3 weeks of the same thing, the fans want to see something different.

On the other hand, last night's RAW episode was tiring to keep up with right from the beginning. This could be part of the reason why fatigue set in during Zayn's segment.

Whatever the case may be, it is clear that this particular angle needs to move on to the next stage, otherwise, there would be no steam left for Sami Zayn to progress.
