WWE RAW: 5 Biggest Mistakes WWE made on the show after Double or Nothing
After a massively successful Double or Nothing, fans were looking forward to how WWE would respond to this on tonight's Monday Night RAW. While Sami did namedrop AEW on the electric-chair segment, which in itself was weird, the show overall was nothing special.
The wildcard rule has taken away the point of having a brand-split as a select few wrestlers (Yes Roman, you!) appear on RAW every week to take away the spot of some underutilized talent, that would ultimately lead to more release requests from the superstars in the future.
The 24/7 title was also not utilized to its potential as there was a lot that could have been done with it. While there were some good moments and matches here and there, WWE still hasn't stepped up their game to compete with the rivals. It's just sad to see Vince not even trying hard enough to make RAW interesting and enjoyable.
In this article, let's take a look at the 5 biggest mistakes that WWE made on the show after Double or Nothing. Let me know your thoughts about tonight's show in the comments section below.
#5 No proper match in the first hour
What do you do when you are competing with a rival whose biggest strength is its in-ring action? You have your best wrestlers step-up their game and put on some solid matches to put forward a statement that you still are the top-most company in pro-wrestling.
Instead what WWE chose to do was fill the first hour with promos, beat-downs, vignettes, backstage segments, etc. While all these are important for the storyline perspective of the show, WWE sometimes seems to forget that they are a "wrestling" company, not just an entertainment one.
The only match we got in the first hour, that too almost at the end of it, was Shane McMahon competing against some random cousin of Roman Reigns and honestly, no one was interested to see that. While WWE did make up for it later on with some decent in-ring action, like the Cesaro vs Ricochet and Seth vs Sami Zayn matches, Vince needs to realize that fans come to watch wrestling and not just promos and interviews.
WWE does have all the arsenal in its disposal, and it is sad to see them not utilizing it properly.
