WWE Raw: 5 shocking moments from this week’s episode (August 5, 2019)
With the Biggest Party of the Summer fast approaching, WWE continued to deliver some interesting segments full of shocks and surprises in order to ensure that our interest in the second biggest event of the year remains high.
To ensure that fans get the most out of this episode, WWE brought in legends such as Kurt Angle, Trish Stratus, Kurt Angle, and Goldberg to make it a starstudded event.
Apart from that, they booked the entire card to near perfection this week, showing that Paul Heyman is trying to get things right back on track and delivering a few punches while doing so.
Keeping all that in mind, we have made a list of 5 interesting and shocking moments from this week’s episode and how they could impact the future of the show and the superstars.
#5 The Viking Raiders’ booking
This is slowly getting very frustrating now. For weeks, WWE has booked The Viking Raiders against local competition. This has solely been done to show the duo’s power and dominance, but what good is it if it isn’t done in the right way?
Yes, we get it that they are the most dominant tag team in WWE today, but when will WWE give them some real competition and build them into the biggest threat in WWE, even if they don’t give them a championship early on?
With teams such as The Usos, The Revival, Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins, AOP, and many others waiting in line to get frequent television time, Erik and Ivar need some team to push them to show how good they can be.
WWE has been booking tag teams very ordinarily on Raw recently and they need to build on the momentum some have from NXT to ensure they don’t get washed away too.
