    Maybe it happens before, but for some strange reason I think a Joe/Roman I.C. title match happens at the Royal Rumble, looking forward to Paige's return match.

    Was a pretty awesome show. Having recently gotten back into WWE glad to see I've returned to it at a somewhat decent time. Brand new players on the shows such as Asuka, Finn Balor etc.

    As for the show itself, I'm really enjoying the whole "Absolution" and "Riot Squad" angles running simultaneously, I'm sure they're going to get linked up at some point as it's essentially mirroring each other. Curious to see where they're going with Absolution holding off on attacking Asuka, some deep part of me would kinda like to see Asuka turn heel and join Absolution which is why they aren't jumping on her at the moment but Asuka seems pretty over with the crowd so doubt it'll happen.

    Gotta say I'm not feeling much hope for Kane in the Kane/Bowman feud. If Kane is going to retire from in-ring, Bowman might be the one to do it and replace him as the only Monster in WWE!

    The ending to the show was done really well actually. Great tag team action there,and I was praying Angle would come out and restart it as a no DQ which is what we got. Wasn't counting on Samoa Joe to ruin it though, that was a nice touch that's a lot more interesting that the Shield running rampage over RAW.

    Good Raw again, helped by a hot crowd.

    I've said it before but I like what they're doing with Jordan now, having him in a feud with Reigns/Joe is a good move until they finally get their one on one match - Rumble maybe?

    Paige got such a great reaction from the crowd!

    Matt Hardy is 'Woken' - LOVED the back and forth video with Bray, thought it was really well done, the crowd seemed to be lapping it up as well:

    This was my first introduction to Matt Hardy's Broken/Woken gimmick and it was pretty interesting, I could forsee Hardy & Bray becoming quite a charismatic tag team after a feud. Also gotta wonder how Jeff will play into all this when he finally returns. I honestly wasn't feeling entertained by Jordan the past few RAW's I've watched right up until his match with Reigns this week where he got to really demonstrate his talent and got a really good rub from Roman, the match itself was pretty intense and totally changed my opinion on Jordan who I thought was pretty mellow beforehand!

    This was my introduction to the Broken gimmick - it was so bad I couldn't stop watching it. All kudos to him though, it got over big.

    I think Jordan has all the tools great look and hes great in the ring, i just think his character is bland and his music bland and the whole kurt being his dad was a creative mistake and the fans seem bored of him already he needs to turn heel.

    Kane vs strowman has been fun, i love strowman but my only concern is how many realistic opponents is there for him on the roster? Not many realistic ones that could go toe too toe with him in the era of realism. But overall the show was great and its always fun to watch strowman on a rampage.
