The 25th Anniversary of Monday Night Raw was presented live from the Manhattan and Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY simultaneously and was expected to be a 'gargantuan' celebration of the longest running, weekly episodic television show in history. Well, the way in which WWE hyped this episode, it was expected of them to produce a colossal nostalgic cracker of an episode but, unfortunately, the show fell flat on its face.
The fans in the Manhattan Center were disappointed to the extent of asking for refunds with WWE failing to produce what they promised. The whole show was rushy, boring and a disappointing mess.
Here are the five major things we learned from the 25th Anniversary of Monday Night Raw
#5 The 16-time World Champion will feud with Elias
Well, when Elias came to address the vocal Brooklyn crowd at the Barclays Center and started talking trash about the past legends, there was a corner in your heart that was anticipating an unexpected shocking interruption by the Rock. However, things did not fall into place as we expected it to be & 'the Drifter' was confronted by 'the 16-time World Champion', John Cena.
Now, despite the fact that Elias is a talented young performer and, continues to receive loud reactions from the WWE Universe, the fans & the critics alike did not expect John Cena to be involved in another segment with him. The two traded shots at each other which culminated with Elias hitting 'the Franchise' with his guitar and completely destroyed him.
While we have to appreciate WWE's idea of giving ' the Drifter' a big push but, the fans tuned into Raw 25 anticipating a monumental confrontation between 'the 16-time World Champion' & the Undertaker. The decimation by Elias has answered the pertinent question on - What is next for Cena? It seems the two will tear each other apart in the Royal Rumble match & will have a mini filler feud before Wrestle Mania.
