WWE Raw: 3 Reasons this week's episode was a huge letdown
Coming out from an explosive start to the Paul Heyman era last week, the expectations for this week's episode of Raw were sky high by default. WWE gave the fans some hope after putting on an engaging show on last week's Raw. They looked desperate to regain the lost demographics, but it seems the company has taken a step back after seeing this week's show.
After putting on an Attitude Era style show last week, this week's show felt like a huge letdown. The only thing we saw as a continuation of last week was the cringeworthy Maria & Mike Kanellis segment which makes us wonder what could've happened within just one week.
The opening mixed tag team match and the main event match ruined the positive aura that surrounded the red brand last week. The fans are taken aback after WWE reverted to their PG ways on tonight’s Raw. With that in mind, let’s take a look at three reasons this week’s Raw was a huge letdown.
#3 WWE might've decided to take one step at a time
There's no doubt that Paul Heyman had his input while WWE put together last week's episode of Raw. The opening match, Corey Graves' commentary, and the backstage segments had Paul Heyman's name written all over it.
There could be a variety of reasons behind WWE taking it easy putting together this week’s Raw. The first thing is they might not want to put too much pressure on the new Executive Directors right from the get-go, WWE will want them to have a dry run before taking over the reins.
The second thing is they might not want the morale of the other members of the creative team to go down. Internal politics will be there in all organizations, and WWE is no exception. If they make the product look better only after the arrival of Heyman & Bischoff, the other members of the creative team will feel down by default.
These might be the reasons WWE could've decided to take one step at a time before making the changes to their product.
