As the Road to Wrestlemania continues, this is the Raw before the Elimination Chamber, the PPV before Mania. Let’s see how things go and how they will try to sell you on purchasing the Elimination Chamber. Let’s Get Started!!!!!

 

Good

Opening Segment: Nice way to show the importance of the Elimination Chamber match and how they all want the title to headline WM.

Christian vs. Daniel Bryan: Is Christian a heel now? Christian and Bryan could probably have a good match in their sleep so I wasn’t surprise this was a good match. Wasn’t a fan of Kane making a match afterwards against Bryan? Maybe it’ll make sense later!!!!

Roman Reigns vs. Mark Henry: Reigns is currently one of my favorite stars. Whenever he turns face, he’ll be a SUPERSTAR!!!! Love the dissension tease!!!

Kofi Kingston vs. Jack Swagger: Really good match!!!! I like both of these guys and its great Swagger is getting an IC title shot. Still hate what they’re doing to Kofi.

John Cena vs. Cesaro: What a great match!!!! This had nearfalls, counters and just a really good match. Really wish they would’ve let Cesaro pull the win out and with the crowd getting behind him, I’m thinking he should make a face turn in the near future. This match had the fans cheering “This is Awesome”.

WWE Network: Looking forward to it and will definitely invest in it.

The Shield and Wyatt Family build: Love the build for this feud and really anticipating their match at Elimination Chamber.

Sheamus vs. Randy Orton: Really good match between these 2 and the fans really loved the spot when Orton backdropped Sheamus through the announce table.

End of Raw Brawl: Loved how they hyped up the Elimination Chamber PPV with the brawl to end Raw.

 

Bad

Big E. vs. Drew McIntyre & Jinder Mahal: I wish they would do something with McIntyre and get rid of Mahal. Big E had so much momentum taken away from him over the last few weeks. This match was really messy!!!!

The Wyatt Family vs. Los Matadores & Sin Cara: It showcased the Wyatts and it turned into a pretty good match towards the end.

Billy Gunn vs. Jimmy Uso: Like the Outlaws being the champs to lose the belts to the Usos eventually but no to the singles matches.

Batista and Alberto Del Rio: This feud had potential but now it look like Batista will squash ADR.

 

Ugly

Fandango vs. Santino Marella: Not this match again, really??????

 

 

Overall Rating: 6/10- This Raw had some ups and downs, but overall it was a better than average Raw. Great match between Cena and Cesaro!!! Really good matches between Bryan/Christian and Sheamus/Orton. The Shield and Wyatts build has been great along with the builds of Reigns and Bray Wyatt.
