5 Botches, slip ups, and outrageous moments from WWE Raw March 27th, 2017
WrestleMania is less than a week away so WWE wants your interest big time. This final Raw before the biggest show of the year took place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Typically one of the rowdier crowds WWE visits, the loud fans were treated to a fairly solid night of last-minute buildup and general go home-ness.
A couple of above-average contests in the opening women’s tag team match, as well as the main event singles bout between Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens sort of book-ended the show, if you don’t count promo segments. They are definitely worth going back and checking out.
Other positives from this Raw include a fun contract signing by Triple H and Seth Rollins, as well as a Goldberg spear against Brock Lesnar that was notable. There were many good things about this episode but as usual, now it’s time for the not-so-good stuff.
Some of the more botchy and outrageous moments featured in this article include a not accurate statement about handicapped people by the WWE COO, a Paige sign that surprisingly made it on air and a kick from the Deadman that almost took out a crew member for real.
All of that and more lie ahead, so go on and see what was offered on this final stretch of road before WWE’s Ultimate Thrill Ride...
#5 Delayed reaction
While Charlotte has more than excelled in her character work on the women’s side of the roster, her peers haven’t quite risen up to her elite level. Case in point was the opening promo of Raw when Sasha Banks came out to join in on the ‘Mania hype.
Playing off of the inevitable Boss turn on the Raw Women’s Champ, Sasha ended her time on the mic by saying that she has not only beaten Bayley to get into this match but will also beat her this Sunday.
There’s something about the timing of this all that just doesn’t click. Did Bayley not process what her friend just said? There’s a noticeable gap between the claim of impending defeat and outrage from the current titleholder.
After this, Nia Jax joined in with these ladies and they put on an enjoyable tag match to kick off this episode.
