The biggest winners and losers of last night's Raw (March 25)
Last night's Raw had a lot of filler, but did a better job than most of the recent episodes in building up a WrestleMania that has lacked excitement. Some matches were made official and we saw some memorable promos. Who got the most and least out of last night's Raw with less than two weeks to go?
"Winners:" Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, and Ronda Rousey
I put the word "winners" in quotations because last night just confirmed what we already knew a long time ago - these three would main event WrestleMania. Congratulations. The build is still bad.
The three engaged in a beat the clock challenge which Becky Lynch won, but it was just the latest bit of wheel spinning and overexposure that has watered this angle down so significantly. It's far from the most exciting match heading into the Show of Shows this year and it will be a relief when this saga is over so we can all move on.
The momentum of the women's division has stalled since the Royal Rumble and I'm looking forward to the reset that will come after WrestleMania.
Winner: Finn Balor
Finn Balor defeated Bobby Lashley and Jinder Mahal in a handicap match last night, punching his ticket to WrestleMania and another shot at the Intercontinental Championship. The fact that this looks like it will be a singles match is significant, and Balor should be the favorite to win there, maybe by breaking out the Demon in a surprise.
That would be the only way to put an exclamation point on this angle, because the build has been pedestrian from week to week. I still can't figure out the reason for taking the title off of Balor in the first place if he was only going to win it back at WrestleMania, which seems likely.
