Every episode of Monday Night Raw in 2015, graded

There were 52 episodes of Monday Night Raw this past year. Considering WWE's flagship show airs every Monday night on USA that should go without saying, but it's used here to set up the fact that that means there have been 52 grades handed out for each one of those episodes.

As with years past, it's time to go back and see how each of those shows was graded.

Below is a complete list of each episode's grade and the title given to that episode by yours truly (and in a couple other cases Sean Rueter and Bill Hanstock tagging in). Each grade and title is clickable in case you want to go back and read full reactions for that particular show.

Go back and look at 2014 grades here, and 2013 grades here.

In 2013, Raw was above average with a couple "A+" grades and only one "F" all year. In 2014, the show was a bit more up-and-down, with more "A" grades (without an "A+" among them) but far more "D" grades and one more "F" to top it off.

This year, as you can see, they doubled up on the past two years with four really bad shows and came up short on "A" grades, and that's with the notoriously positive Hanstock reviewing a couple shows. It wasn't the best year for WWE on Monday nights.

Here's to hoping for a much better 2016.
