Yesterday was the historic Wrestlemania 30 where we saw the arrival of Cesaro, the Streak coming to an end and Daniel Bryan overcoming all the odds to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion. One thing I love about Wrestlemania is the Raw following Wrestlemania because they’re usually the best crowds and this one was no different. Let’s get right into it!!!
The Crowd: This crowd was very energetic and it was just as good as the one from New Jersey last year.
The Opening Segment: It was great with the video package featuring Daniel Bryan, the crowd was AWESOME and the exchange with him and Triple was great also that set up the main event.
Wyatt Family vs. John Cena, Sheamus & Big E: Great six-man tag match with a lot of action and the crowd was definitely into this match with various chants. The crowd was actually chanting “Bray’s Gonna Kill You”.
Paul Heyman Promo: This dude is so money it’s crazy. This promo was damn good and Heyman is so good at what he does it’s not even funny.
RVD vs. Damien Sandow: Nice to see RVD back and I really wish they would do something with Sandow.
Wade Barrett vs. Rey Mysterio: We finally get to see Barrett wrestle on TV and I’m hoping this is the beginning of a push for him. This was actually a pretty good match also. Once again, the crowd was great for this match.
Debut of Alexander Rusev w/ Lana: Amazing debut by this big dude and Lana is freakin’ GORGEOUS!!!
Ultimate Warrior on Raw: He’s one of my all-time favorites; I remember having shoe strings around my arms thinking I was him.
Aj & Debut of Paige: Wow!!! This could be a boost that will help the Divas division. Looking forward to seeing her and Paige feud!!!!
The Rise of Cesaro: They’re finally pushing one of the best wrestlers in the world in Cesaro and now he’s aligned with Paul Heyman. This should be great and I expect big things coming from this. The fans absolutely love Cesaro and he’s my favorite along with Daniel Bryan.
Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H: It wasn’t a match but it was nice to see that Daniel Bryan didn’t get another beatdown because Triple H had Kane, Batista and Orton. The Shield came to the rescue of Bryan and the crowd went nuts for it. Great ending to a great Raw!!!!
Emma & Santino vs. Fandango & Summer Rae: We’ve seen this so many times and think Emma deserves better, but it’s getting her over.
The Usos vs. Randy Orton & Batista: So I guess they’re not caring about the tag titles anymore? They basically squashed the Usos, I mean they could’ve found a couple of other guys to squash than the tag champs.
Overall Rating: 9.5/10- This was one of the best Monday Night Raws I’ve seen in a long time. From the debuts and vignettes for new talent courtesy of NXT. We saw the rise of Cesaro as he’s a Paul Heyman Guy and speaking of Heyman, how about his promo he cut earlier? The Shield coming to the rescue of Daniel Bryan after being jumped by Orton, Batista and Kane when Triple H thought he was easily going to take the title from Bryan. Paige winning the title against Aj was great and plenty more happening on Raw was just great. The ending of Raw had me marking out with Daniel Bryan and the Shield standing tall. Last, but not least much props to the crowd.
