WWE RAW: 5 huge mistakes WWE made on the night after WrestleMania 35 (April 8, 2019)
The night after WrestleMania is usually one of the most explosive weekday nights in sports entertainment, as we are surprised by a few new feuds, and a few debuts and returns.
While WWE tried to do the same on this week’s Raw, things didn’t feel as special as they could have at the end of the night. We finally got Lars Sullivan’s debut, while Sami Zayn returned, and The Undertaker left a mark.
Becky Lynch also showed up to talk about her historic victory before jump-starting a rivalry with Lacey Evans.
However, nothing much was done to establish on the fact that there were three unique first-time winners on the show, and no real threats emerged to haunt them.
In this article, we will look at the 5 biggest mistakes that WWE made on this week’s show, and how it can impact the overall storylines the superstars are engaged in.
#5 Gave Bayley a Moment of Bliss
A night after hosting WrestleMania 35, the Queen of Queens returned to in-ring action and took on Bayley in a one-on-one match.
Earlier, Alexa Bliss posted on social media that she could beat Sasha Banks or Bayley and, probably, both at the same time.
Just a night ago, Bayley and Sasha walked into WrestleMania as the Women’s Tag Team Champions. The two lost their titles, and the WWE quickly booked one of them in a match to return a better and stronger Alexa Bliss.
Though the match was good and did what it had to, it was a bit bad seeing a woman who was a champion just a day earlier lose in such a fashion to a returning superstar.
Instead, WWE could have fed Bliss with an enhancement talent such as Dana Brooke or even Tamina. However, the lack of faces in the women’s roster was terribly exposed as most of the roster is heel now.
