Author’s Take

Gauntlet Matches are usually one of the most interesting stipulations in WWE and on this week’s Monday Night Raw, the WWE Universe will witness utter chaos among the seven competitors who will battle it out among themselves in order to get a shot at the WWE Universal Title at Wrestlemania 34.
