OOfficial Discussion Thread for: RAW (February 26, 2018)

Tonight on RAW: the Monday night crew have clear sailing ahead to WrestleMania 34, and the main question is how much do they focus on the pair of major marquee stories that are pretty well set versus making fresh progress on the stories we aren't clear on yet...

We know Brock Lesnar is in the house tonight, and his challenger is now scheduled to be Roman Reigns.... that said, Paul Heyman issued a threatening statement last night, suggesting that WM Comes Early, starting tonight, and whoever won the Elimination Chamber would begin receiving their ass-kicking from Brock effective immediately... plus, Braun Strowman beat the ever loving shit out of Reigns after last night's match.... so if WWE has another card to play to make the erstwhile main event of WM34 less of a Festival of Shitting Upon Roman, tonight's certainly set up to be the night they play it...

Also, last night's events more or less cemented Kurt Angle as the likely tag partner for Ronda Rousey in a mixed tag Stunt Casting Special Attraction Match, against Stephanie and HHH... expect tonight to begin with StepHHH all trying to be cool and pretending to smooth it over, before springing a trap and giving us our first instance of Rousey looking vulnerable...

Pressing those two issues hard while laying off any other major developments would probably be "enough show" for one night.... but at present there are no clear challengers for either the tag or IC titles, we're still waiting for Asuka to declare which women's title she wants to go for (and last night almost seemed to swing things in favor of her sticking on RAW to challenge Alexa), and John Cena has made a whole big story of how he doesn't have "a path" to Mania and how he's going to have to break with etiquette in order to open one up... any one of those 4 issues would be a pretty big deal in and of itself...

All that, plus you know have two major main event caliber players in Braun Strowman and Seth Rollins, ostensibly on the outside looking in, when it comes to having anything to do at WM.... and it seems unlikely that we're done with Hardy/Wyatt yet, either... throw in a secondary RAW-centric women's story (which should be Bayley vs. Sasha), and that's up to 10 major stories brewing, and there's no way RAW's putting 10 matches on the WM34 card, even if it is 6 hours long (including the preshow).... so I guess what I'm saying is, we've reached the part of the year when even premium talents might be relegated to sub-premium spots on the show.... good for making it feel like 3 hours worth of RAW has been fully well-spent, but bad for anybody below the upper-mid-card having aspirations for much of anything besides Token Entry Into the Andre Battle Royale....

That is all. End communication.

The flOOr is yours, OO Nation. Don't wait till after 11pm to post, either. Pre-show previewing and prognosticating is certainly welcome. So discuss, debate, and rate!

See, that's what an actual heel beatdown looks like, it's not what Sasha did to Bayley in an everyone-for-themselves match like EC.

What's the over/under (lol, betting terms I don't understand) on the speed of the #outrage for my new favorite wrasslin' midgette mildly going all, "YOU NO SPEAK-EE ENGRISH GOOD!" on Asuka?

The racism is OK this time because Vince wrote it himself.

That's some mighty fine heelery by the beefy gal.

Sexism by Coach by calling them "ladies"? #smashpatriarchy!

Crazy Japanese women own. Ought to form a big pack of them, give them all swords and axes, and send them to Syria to carve up jihadis and Russians.

And here I was thinking that what Cena should've done a long time ago was turn heel.

I feel like this could prove to be a decent match. Old Man Cena vs. Older Man Taker has a decent ring to it. If it's happening, since now it sounds like it WON'T happen. Which of course means it will.

HE DEED IT HE DEED IT HE CHALLENGED THE UNDERTAKER BAH GAWD!

Also, yes why the fuck not?

ETA: Not for nothing, Cena is a once-in-a-lifetime spokesman and face of the WWE with abilities to be broad-spectrum appealing and a believable company man that nobody outside of maybe The Miz have the chops to replace.

I want to remain hopeful about this continuing Hardy/Wyatt stuff! I assume it could end with a bunch of that amazingly ridiculous taped insanity! And yet so far it's just some matches, synchronized cackling, indecipherable promos, and Bray assaulting WWE's Jobber-est Tag Team. Or at least RAM'S Jobber-est Tag Team.

Anyone cheering for Miz right now is doing the wrestle-fan wrong and should be forced to re-read the official fan-role guidebook.

Great promo. Probably spoke for a huge part of the audience who are sick and tired of new guys being sold out to the Old School and especially of the part-timers collecting the biggest pay.

So I wonder if Brock not being there was a legit last minute thing or if it was always the WWE's intention to have him "no show" to further along the storyline.

Either way, that was a pretty damn solid promo out of Reigns and if he keeps that up, he may get more than a 30/70 crowd reaction before WrestleMania (I mean, he'll probably still get booed by 50% of the audience but hey, that's still an improvement).
