Name Of Show Being Graded: Monday Night Raw is War!
Storyline Development: Gotta go with Cody Rhodes & CM Punk winning, not just as it's my character or the fact that it's the #bromance. Purely because I felt Team Teddy had to look strong this week to counteract Team Eve looking strong last week. I have to also praise THBK & G.G.G as without the WWE Championship, Raw could have fallen in quality but it really hasn't, and it's down to this Team Teddy-Team Eve feud.
Character Development: John Cena. Des' part in the opener really surprised me as I expected another rap- which are, albeit good, not going to get Cena to the next level in my eyes- so it was nice to see him cut a promo with more substance.
Best Feud: Sting vs. The Flock. The segments throughout the show where Sting stalked The Flock down backstage kept me more and more intrigued. Also, both The Flock's promo and Sting's promos were outstanding.
Worst Feud: Hassan-Hogan. I'm just not getting pulled in at all by it.
Best Promo: CM Punk's part of the opener. Outstanding work.
Worst Promo: Chyna's. Not to say it wasn't good, it just was the worst of the night in my eyes.
Parts That Excelled: Every promo was good. Every match was well written- especially Regal-Hero which stole the show for me. I loved the Maria-AJ segment.
Parts Needing Improvement: Hassan-Hogan for definite, although judging by the fact that they faced off tonight, that could perhaps mean the end of the feud, which I hope is the case.
Overall Experience: B+. Solid show to finish up before War Games.
