Best and Worst of Raw - 17th October, 2016
A mammoth return that eclipsed everything else in this show. Brock Lesnar, you're next. But also, you're last!
If you bought your tickets to attend Raw at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado; we’re sure you had a night to remember. Those who were watching professional wrestling during the Monday Night Wars, and also during the Ruthless Aggression Era must have goosebumps all over their body, and a tear in their eye.
Of course, you know what our first point for the ‘Best’ section will be, but before we get into it...let us ask ourselves a question. Was this really a good show, or are we letting ourselves be carried away by the insane moment that just transpired? Read on!
#1 BEST: The myth is real
Going into Raw this week, there was excitement and anticipation in the air! After Paul Heyman’s challenge last week, Goldberg was returning in person to reply to the beast’s advocate and his mammoth challenge. 12 years later, the kind of pop that he received was deafening to the ears!
We could tell that Goldberg himself was moved by how well the crowd remembered him and was humbled by the fact that he got to have this moment in front of his wife and son. As he said – ‘Not only are you next, Brock Lesnar...you’re last!’, we couldn’t help but Mark out.
This is a genuinely big match, that requires no hype or build, but is a story that writes itself. This is truly and definitely awesome!
