Best and Worst of Raw: 15th May, 2017
An improvement over last week's show, but far from perfect.
Last week’s episode of Raw was a torture to sit through, and the ratings reflected the same. This week, thankfully, WWE was in the United States once again, and we saw a slight improvement in the content.
There were three big matches, and things fell into place as we head towards the Extreme Rules PPV. How did this episode of Raw, coming to us from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey fare? There’s only one way to find out, really! Let's revisit the best and worst of this episode.
#1 Best: Kurt Angle is back
Kurt Angle was not a part of the episode of Raw filmed in the UK last week, and we saw Dean Ambrose and The Miz acting as co-general managers in his absence. The outcome was hokey, lacklustre and lukewarm.
This week, Kurt Angle returned to the fold and the show felt important once again. Whether it was bantering with Maryse in French or making matches, Angle brought a weight to the show that was missing last week. He was the anchor that really held the show together. Oh, it’s true. It's damn true.
