I recognize it was a low bar to clear but that was one of the best episodes of Monday Night Raw we’ve seen from WWE in some time. It’s amazing what simply putting on a bunch of matches with actual stakes can do for a program!
That’s all they did here — five different Money in the Bank qualifying matches, a couple promos to set up future matches, and then a Hell in a Cell match with a fine angle to close the show out in the main event.
Why can’t Raw just be like this every week?
