5 botches and outrageous moments from WWE Raw (February 19, 2018)
For fans of high-quality in-ring action, the February 19th edition of Raw was easily one of the best episodes in a long time. The ridiculously long Gauntlet match that featured a memorable performance by Seth Rollins highlighted this night. It was also the longest Raw match in history, which was cool to witness. We can only hope that WWE takes note of the positive feedback and tries to emulate what worked from this show.
As amazing as this Raw was, there were still several outrageous and botchy items to remark on. Moments such as Mickie James' noticeable spot calling, Asuka's forgetfulness during her promo, and a few grown men in the front row who were ready to fight over free John Cena merchandise all get their time in the spotlight of this article.
First up is one fan's audacity to challenge Vince McMahon's second attempt at an alternative to the NFL.
#5 No love for the XFL
Some people are brazen... and patient. This individual saved this sign the entire night, only to flash it during the post-match brawling of the main event. While Alexa Bliss, Sonia Deville, and Mandy Rose collected themselves after losing the 6-woman tag match inside the middle of the ring, this person's take on Vince McMahon's side project was brandished for the entire world to see. Surely the production truck was having a freak out that this sign was just to the right of the middle of the backdrop of the hard camera.
If this sign had been showcased earlier in the night, it would've been confiscated in a heartbeat. But since it was saved until the final few minutes of the broadcast, no members of security were seen frantically trying to get it away from the hard camera.
