RAW: 5 things WWE got right on this week’s episode (Dec 2, 2019)
This week’s RAW was all geared up for Seth Rollins’ apology after he criticised the entire RAW locker room last week. And fans were interested in how Kevin Owens would react to his apology, and whether the Authors of Pain would get involved in the affair.
With the RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch missing for the second consecutive week from television, and the WWE Champion not showing up yet again, it was up to the other Superstars to step up and carry the flagship brand forward.
In this article, we will look at the 5 things that the company got right on this week’s episode of RAW.
#5 Continued rebuilding Drew McIntyre
Once considered a top contender to even take down someone like Brock Lesnar, Drew McIntyre has seen many highs and lows since his return to the main roster last year.
The Scottish Psychopath needs some time and top rivalries to rebuild, and the company has decided to give him some more time on the mic and opposite some top men like Randy Orton.
This week, McIntyre took on Akira Towaza in a match that was fun to watch. It is necessary to note here that Towaza is an outstanding cruiserweight competitor who has the ability to overcome even the biggest challenges.
However, McIntyre was able to score a victory over his smaller opponent convincingly, and it seems like the company is giving McIntyre a new spot to work on which stems from his height and size.
McIntyre then cut a promo where he spoke about the complaints in the locker room and called Randy Orton out. The two men had a good one-to-one conversation before The O.C. interrupted.
This was a good way to rebuild McIntyre who needs to be at the top of his game and bookings by Royal Rumble so that he can get back to competing at the top level.
