Raw moves forward

New, 13 comments

Raw may feel mostly repetitive, but, for the most part, this week’s show was about moving forward. With the exception of Sheamus once again booking a match with Damian Priest for the U.S. title by beating old rival Drew McIntyre, this show made clear we’re getting a new direction everywhere else.

  • Charlotte Flair and Nia Jax finished up whatever weirdness they had, and now Flair will be wrestling Alexa Bliss for the Raw women’s championship while Jax is on a collision course with her longtime tag team partner, Shayna Baszler.
  • Bobby Lashley is now fully tied up in Randy Orton’s business, having agreed to a WWE championship match with him at Extreme Rules but also earning a tag team title shot alongside MVP on Raw next week.
  • With The Miz gone, John Morrison was left to carry the day with Karrion Kross on “Moist TV” before putting him over in a match.
  • Nikki A.S.H. & Rhea Ripley are the next top contenders in the women’s tag team division.
  • Drake Maverick showed up and he wants to get the 24/7 championship back.

Whether or not you agree with the direction, Raw is at least moving forward.
