WWE RAW - Week 1
AFTER MATH Raw Review:
Booker and Vickie being relieved of their duties was unexpected and I did not see Edge being the new GM as a good thing in the beginning, but it was surprising and knowing he is retired for good, made sense of him having such a great job to still see him and feel his presence.
4-Way Elimination Match for No.1 Contender Title shot at US Title
Jack Swagger's new look certainly raised my eye brows and got me to optimistically see his victory as a strong one. Adopting Undertaker's American Bad Ass gimmick, as I see it, is a nice change and give him the pop he deserves and momentum leading into Royal Rumble.
JTG vs Mason Ryan
A nice Squash match, with Mason pulling off a crazy end to his match.
Darren Young/w Titus O'Niel & AW vs Sin Cara /w Rey Mysterio
Prime Time Players doing what they do best to win matches. Nice to have AW in their corner again, he was what they were missing so badly.
Backstage segment, 3MB actually playing instruments is a hilarious thought and I actually visualized it and lmao.
6-man tag Match
Mark Henry dominating and inducting 6-more names into the Hall of Pain was impressive.
Dolph, AJ, Langston, & Edge Segment
A segment which, I feel, gave Edge credibility as new GM in knowing what it takes to be a former MITB holder, and knows how to push the buttons of one Dolph Ziggler. Giving nice tension on his career in giving him the chance to give him the best or worst chances going into the Rumble match.
Main Event: CM Punk vs John Cena - non-title match
SHIELD's involvement was true, but the addition of the 4th guy is interesting.
Looking forward to SmackDown!
