Looks like they moved Rey vs Andrade off the pre-show and added R-Truth and Samoa Joe to make it a four way for the US title in a rematch from Smackdown!

Really good match, I'm actually sad to see it happen as they've become a fun watch.

I’m just glad it was Shane who turned. Miz would have been too obvious.

Asuka vs Mandy was better than I expected.

They were smart to have Shane do it because even if Miz did, he'd be cheered beyond belief since it's Cleveland. So Shane turns and you have the instant heel reaction anyway.


I don't get the Kofi stuff. I understand make the crowd want it more and make it a bigger match for Mania, but to say ok triple threat title match only to announce ringside it's a handicap match is just idiotic. Even the announcers are like uhh wtf.

And then to have him get massacred and lose. WTF?? He needed to at least overcome the odds and win. It just stopped being Kofi fighting for a chance and started being a literal burial.

I think the announcer fucked up by saying it was handicap. Vince told him you want a triple threat, go to the ring it's now. So I think it was supposed to be a triple threat of Kofi vs Cesaro vs Sheamus.

For not having a tag division, Raw continues to have good matches for the tag titles :lol:

So is the payoff of Kofi being screwed going to be that Vince is racist?

That’s like the payoff of a Steve Austin angle being that he likes beer...

Vince can't be racist, he put Ali in the match!

I love seeing what band shirt Eric Rowan will come out wearing. He's repped metal bands in a way I haven't seen since mid-'90s Raven.

There's no way this Ambrose deal isn't a work at this point. No way would they discuss his leaving so openly on the air like this otherwise.

It definitely confuses me too. If it’s real, this would very much be a first. Maybe even a new approach to handling when a big star decides to leave?

That felt like an old 2013 Shield match where they were having 6 man classics one after the other. Just a fun ride.

Definitely a fun way to end the show.

I know they are trying to sell how volatile the situation is with Rhonda, Becky, and Charlotte but I wished they could have found another way to end that match.

Ronda and Becky doing it is a lot less hot for me than it was the night after the Rumble.

This was a hell of a show for good matches, but the booking was confounding to me in a lot of ways.
