Can you believe that WrestleMania is less than two weeks from now? It certainly does not feel like it judging by this week's RAW. Sure, there were a few developments, but the show did feel like a big disappointment. Still, we'll remain positive and list the best and worst, this week.

As we approach the biggest WWE pay-per-view of the year, WWE made its penultimate pit stop at the Quicken Loans Arena. It did not help that, except for a few segments, Cleveland seemed like a pretty dead crowd. Only certain segments could rouse them from their slumber.

On the heels of a fantastic 'Strong Style Evolved', WWE really has to step up their game to connect with fans that may be getting disillusioned with the product of today. As they've proved time and again, they can be absolutely awesome when they want to.

Presenting the best and worst of RAW.

#1 Best: Hot start

Brock Lesnar lay down yet another beat down on Roman Reigns

We did like the segment that kicked off the show. Whether it was Paul Heyman mocking Roman Reigns for not showing up after the vicious beatdown, or Reigns' eventual appearance and the brawl that ensued, it was all well done.

The crowd was hot for the segment as well. We thought this was a great appetizer for the main course that would ensue.

Lesnar just comes across as tough and believable in everything he does. As does Reigns, because his physique matches up to Lesnar's. We're certain that when the match does happen, it will deliver.

We wonder if this match is still closing out the show or not. Whatever the case may be, we're excited to see what eventually transpires at WrestleMania 34.
