It's a brand new year and there's hardly a better way to start it off right than by watching an episode of WWE Raw. This inaugural show of 2018 was highlighted by an excellent matchup featuring Samoa Joe vs Roman Reigns, yet struggled to find many other great moments.

Braun Strowman kept Powerslamming Heath Slater & Rhyno and Finn Balor teamed up with Gallows & Anderson, but that was most of the good stuff.

As for the botches and outrageous moments, WWE provided the usual lot. Matt Hardy discovered an extreme form of multiplication, Booker T blundered his words more than once, and Brock Lesnar flipped his title belt in an unintended tribute to a soon-returning Miz.

There was also a botch from WWE's current top ring announcer, which kicks off this countdown.


#5 Heath did not wrestle

The first feature of the night happened during this entrance. Braun Strowman was already in the ring, waiting for a match requested by Rhyno. According to the announcers, Rhyno wanted to show his buddy Heath Slater an example of toughness.

However, Jojo announced the competitors wrong. She stated Heath Slater as the participant in the match while Rhyno simply was there to accompany his buddy.

To her credit, they both walked out together to Heath Slater's theme song, so it's understandable that she thought he was wrestling. The graphic on screen was correctly labelled, as can be seen.
