OOfficial Discussion Thread for: RAW (April 30, 2018)

Tonight on RAW: a very oddly paced post-WM month should start to re-rack, with the Saudi Rumble (which went from curiosity, to nearly WrestleMania-caliber itself, and wound up a glorified house show over the course of the past 3 weeks) in the rearview mirror, and with the traditional WM Follow Up -- Sunday's Backlash PPV -- looming...

The PPV will return us to a model where both RAW and SD will supply marquee matches, which will mean less spots for midcard talent, but should translate into events that seem a bit more densely packed with compelling material.... but for the first time back, things are still in a state of flux, resulting in one major oddity:

SD has a couple of major self-contained/single-brand storylines set to pay off on Sunday.... but RAW's two biggest matches both feature one RAW guy vs. one SD guy....

The oddest of the two oddities is Roman Reigns facing off against SD's Samoa Joe, in a match that is -- to the shock of many -- NOT for the WWEU Title... Brock Lesnar's win over Reigns was controversial, which COULD be used as a way to turn it into a 3-way.... but if not, it's just a damned peculiar nothing burger of match, devoid of stakes and devoid of any real consequences since these two won't cross paths again for a long time.... [or, in other words: no, Brock won't be added, and WWE will just press ahead with Reigns getting the clean win, while Joe gets a fresh start on SD]

Less odd is that Seth Rollins is defending the IC Title against SD's Miz on Sunday... many (including myself) thought that WWE would use the Saudi Rumble and Backlash to pull the ol' switcheroo to get the US Title back on RAW and the IC Title over to SD.... and while Miz and the IC belong on the same brand, and Sunday could do the trick, there is currently no mechanism in place for somebody on RAW to bring Jeff Hardy's US Title back to Mondays (Jinder Mahal pissed away his shot, but somebody else could certainly be hotshotted into position tonight by simple Dictate by Steph/Angle/Shane/Paige... [seems like the quartet of Roode/Elias/Finn/Gable are the guys who would be in line to contend for the IC if it stays on RAW, so one of them would be the most likely to bring the US over from SD so that they all still have a secondary strap to fight over.. and yes, I reserve the right to forget Corbin exists until WWE absolutely demands otherwise.... ROODE ELIAS FINN GABLE... THERE ARE *FOUR* LIGHTS!!!!]

RAW's only self-contained feud set for the PPV stage is Nia Jax defending her shiny new Women's Title against ex-champ Alexa Bliss... the women could also supply a pretty strong secondary attraction, if they run with Ronda Rousey & Natalya in a tag team match against the Riott Squad (said situation was set up last week, and it gets Ronda on the show, while still preserving her singles debut for down the line)... and anytime Rousey's involved, StepHHH can always be lurking (in this case, almost certainly using their influence to turn Nattie against Rousey, despite their long-standing and well-documented friendship)...

The Deleters of Worlds -- Matt and Bray -- are new tag champs on RAW, but don't have anyone stepping to them just yet, because The Bar have already been moved over to SD.... with co-branded PPVs, there's no reason to rush an insta-feud, but I would imagine that tonight we begin the process of determining new #1 Contenders, with Ziggler/McIntyre or the Revival looking like the favorites...

Braun won Friday's Saudi Rumble, and unless they figure out a way to get Brock onto Sunday's PPV, he also begins to look like the man who will finally beat Lesnar... but that happens no sooner than SummerSlam (Brock is now close enough to beating CM Punk's modern record for longest World Title Reign, so you just KNOW Vince is the kind of guy who has taken notice of the fact that he can wipe Punk's name from the record books if he lets Brock keep the belt another couple months), and that means Strowman needs stuff to do between now and then.... Owens and/or Zayn pretty much seems like they're it, right? Poor fellas...

Finally, it is my great hope that the BLANKtourage continue their search for a manipulative master for whom they can play lickspittle ... truly, it's the role they were born to play, baby!

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!

Really going in on that replay didn't quite help sell the whole "throat into metal doodad" thing. OR, Elias is so good, he can hurt people by simply placing them within range of something. Let's go with that one.

Why is it that the thing I'm most looking forward to tonight is how they handle the Titus O'Neal situation. Do they play it up? Do they not mention it at all? Do they give him the night off and avoid dealing with it completely?

"It's certainly different here in Montreal!"

Not when Roman comes out, Corey. That's pretty Universal.

Let's review. Also, please see my av and give the appropriate amount of praise. I worked very hard for about 3 minutes to make it. You're welcome.

WWE is hiring ISIS guys now? Why didn't they just keep Muhammad Hassan instead?

Titus was probably hoping to get fired before tonight and avoid the entire thing altogether.

He's lucky the ladder match already happened before he did that, otherwise he might have hurt more than just his pride.

True dat LM, but ladder aside that ringpost missed turning his shoulder, or worse, his head into a bowl of soup by mere inches. Jokes mostly aside, I'm glad the punchline is merely that he tripped and slid under the ring.

Also, thank you Finn and WWE. Thank you. DONNNNNNNNNG!

"Gangrenous foot" is actually the unofficial nickname that the other Canadian cities use to refer to Montreal.

Kind of jarring to watch Sasha Banks kick out of Ruby Riott's awesome second-rope cannonball, which got a huge crowd reaction, then lose to the never-looks-good Riott Kick.

Really? That's it? Just laugh it off?

In the Hardy/Wyatt montage they should have photo shopped them under the ring when Titus suddenly dives in.

I'm watching this too, and... um... It ain't going. I still trust The Process, however, and still hate the Keltics, so let us expect better things from Game Two.

Ah, so Titus just PRETENDED to trip and slide under the ring at the Greetest Royal Rumble so he could come out tonight and help No Way Jose win via surprise rollup. I KNEW IT.

Cool that they're working with Titus on The Botch and not making him eat too much shit over it. And they used it for a No Way Jose/Boring Cornbread angle! WWE is learnding!
