Best and worst of RAW: 27th November, 2017
Survivor Series is in the rearview mirror now, and the men and women of RAW are heading straight for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view in January. There are no B pay-per-views until then, providing RAW the opportunity to spruce up their weekly television with exciting title matches.
This did not start off as a noteworthy episode of RAW, but at the halfway mark, things suddenly picked up. By the time the three hours were up, in our estimation, the positives did outweigh the negatives.
Of course, your opinion may differ from ours. If it does, we'd like to hear from you in the comments below.
As has become customary, here is our post-RAW 'Best and Worst' list for you!
#1 Best: A star-making performance
Even though it was featured at the two-hour mark, and not at the end of the third hour, the main event for the show was certainly Elias vs. Roman Reigns. It sounds like a mismatched contest at first, does it not?
The talented Elias proved all his doubters wrong this week, as he recruited the Miztourage to become their makeshift leader, during The Miz's absence. He garnered so much heel heat during his musical performance, that even Roman Reigns received a positive response from the crowd when he made his way out for his match.
Moreover, he had a fantastic match with Roman Reigns. Reigns' own Intercontinental Championship run is off to a great start, as he's used the first match of his reign to elevate a mid-carder like Elias.
It was also great to see a positive response for Roman Reigns, after being booed out of the building for years on end.
