5 Greatest WWE Championship Matches on RAW
As we prepare to embark on a season of change, sometimes it is important to reflect on the moments that made Monday Night Raw such a great show. One of the things that helped Raw evolve into the flagship program for WWE, is all of the epic title defenses that have main-evented Monday nights. While the tag titles, the Intercontinental title, the United States title and the Women's title are defended quite often, the WWE Championship is rarely defended on Raw or Smackdown. However, when it is, it elevates the show to near pay-per-view status.
Throughout the years, superstars such as Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, Triple H and many more have defended the top prize in wrestling on Monday Night Raw. With that said, this article highlights those memorable nights, when the WWE Championship was defended on Raw.
Before we get into the top 5, let's take a brief look at the WWE Title bout that almost made the list. This is the honorable mention.
