Best Moments


Seth Rollins gets an RKO (Outta Nowhere!)

The show started off with the Authority mentioning Randy Orton’s loss to John Cena, while praising Seth Rollins for his win over Dean Ambrose. An upset viper made his way to the ring to confront Rollins and was held back by Triple H. But while The Game was in mid sentence, Orton managed to slip by and deliver a quick RKO on Rollins. Randy Orton was absent for the rest of Raw, but It was a nice way to start the show.

Mark Henry attacks the Big Show

Henry turning against Show happened seemed of the blue. I’m pretty sure we were going to see a turn at one point, but it felt like it escalated quickly. Especially considering how vicious the attack was. As cool as a feud would be between the two, I was kind of hoping for a tag team championship run with both of them dominating the roster.

Ryback vs Bo Dallas

Despite losing his last televised match, Bo Dallas issued an open challenge to anyone in the locker room. Ryback made his return and squashed Dallas. Big Hungry looked great in his return, and the crowd was behind him as well. I can’t think of a better time for Ryback to return with the lack of top talent potential at the moment. Maybe WWE will push him correctly this time.

Dolph Ziggler vs Kane

The Show Off proved that he can have a decent match with almost anyone, and Kane showed that he can still hang in there with younger talent. It was a decent match all around considering their styles are completely different. Ziggler scored the victory, but the match felt like it could have went either way. It was definitely a highlight of the show.


Let’s be honest, we’ve seen better episodes of Raw in the past. It wasn’t awful, but I expected better considering it followed Hell in a Cell. Bray Wyatt cut a promo against Ambrose that proved his feuds are chosen randomly and without solid reason. Stephanie Mcmahon tried to tempt John Cena to join the Authority, as if we’re all unaware that the WWE would let Chris Benoit  in to the Hall of Fame before turning Cena heel. And the show ended with the entire roster running to the ring not to save Cena and Ziggler from the authority, but to fight each other for absolutely no reason what so ever. It wasn’t an awful episode, but it did feel very sloppy at times.
