WWE RAW: 4 biggest mistakes WWE made on this week’s episode (May 6, 2019)
With the fall of ratings, WWE tried to make various changes to the brand and the rules that apply to superstars in an attempt to somehow increase the ratings.
While things seemed to have been a bit rushed, there were many mistakes WWE made on this week’s episode which made it go from bad to worse in some spots.
With badly booked matches, to unnamed competitors taking the ring in place of some underused superstars, Raw had chaos written all over it.
On top of that, another bad segment between The Revival and The Usos led one to wonder what Raw is trying to achieve by putting their two best tag teams in such a position.
After the end of the episode, we have compiled the top four biggest mistakes WWE made on Raw this week.
Take a look at our list below, and share your views in the comments section!
#4 Put Ricochet’s MITB spot on the line
This Monday Night, WWE gave Robert Roode a chance to find his way into the MITB Ladder Match. The freshly turned heel superstar faced Ricochet for the opportunity from two weeks earlier.
The match saw Roode deliver a good performance, and for once seemed dangerous since his last reign as the United States Champion. While the action was getting hot, Ricochet fought, sent Roode crashing to the mat below and finished him off with the 630 for the win.
This allowed Ricochet to pick up another win and also secure his place in the Money in the Bank Ladder match for later this month.
If the creative had to let Ricochet keep his spot, they should have never put it on the line against a superstar who has just had a change in gimmick. While it seemed like Roode was en route to some sort of push with a new gimmick, it was also thrown out the window via the loss.
