Wrestlemania week kicked off with the go home show, the final stop for the RAW roster before the two day event at the weekend; to say they have made some baffling choices in the last few weeks booking is an understatement.
Separating the rather fantastic Hurt Business was a strange choice MVP has been doing some of the best work of his already great career and splitting the other major faction, Retribution on a PPV Pre Show was a bold choice, not the right choice but a bold one.
Shane McMahon bullying the monster Braun Strowman continued and although Shane O’Mac always brings the goods on the big shows do we really need to see this match? Braun is underutilised and its a crying shame.
Rhea Ripley is facing Asuka at Wrestlemania in a match which could steal the night so it made sense for them to lose tonight to add some extra tension between the two.
Drew McIntyre is having some of the best matches of his career at the moment, check out the matches he had with Sheamus over the past few weeks, those two have a great chemistry and Sheamus eventually getting a Universal championship match against Mac would be incredible.
