    The sad reality is that there are at least 1 million more people who apparently watch RAW but refuse to watch Smackdown or anything else for that matter.

    I love the story that Drew McIntyre accidentally created the Claymore Kick because his pants in 3MB were too tight and it caused him to botch a big boot...

    But really Viking Experience? It's like swapping the Stone Cold Steve Austin name for Chilly McFreeze.

    The Viking Experience sounds like a garage band that writes songs about the Silmarillion because Lord of the Rings is too mainstream...

    I took my car to Wal-Mart for an oil change and some routine maintenance. Their high-mileage oil is called "Viking Motorsport High Performance Oil" for cars with over 100,000 miles.

    They told me they'd give me the full "viking experience".

    Wal-Mart > RAW.

    The most egregious thing of the evening was changing The War Raiders to The Viking Experience. I appreciate the fact that they're giving an inkling of a thought that they're committed to overhauling the tag division on Raw. The tag teams added and (for at least the short term) the establishing of Ricochet and Black on Raw should go a long way in making that division relevant.

    Miz shifting to Raw was beyond obvious. He's not cross promoting a show on USA when he's on Fox. In addition, if he's turned to a face and lost at Mania, he was going to need a change of scenery.

    No real issue with Andrade and Mysterio going to Raw. If anything, there's a full hour added for them to finally make good and pay off the weeks of back and forth classic matches between the two of them. That would go in service of building Andrade, which I would think is something they want to do. He can find footing in the midcard and bubble up if necessary. It was also a nice, subtle touch for Elias to say if someone came out to interrupt him that they "will never be able to show their face again" and a masked wrestler came out.

    Cedric Alexander probably has a better chance of getting more TV time than No Way Jose but I'm not presuming he's going to get much of an opportunity.

    Naomi needed the change of scenery, as well. She pretty much wasn't accomplishing anything of significance on Smackdown for quite a while.

    The puzzling one is the continued dissolving of SAnitY with Eric Young moving to Raw. It's puzzling but it's not anything major, obviously.

    AJ on Raw definitely boosts the top of the card and a match between AJ and Seth should be pretty great. The heel side of Raw still seems questionable and needs some clarity after tomorrow.

    ---

    I do wonder about the alleged travel issues for some of the talent and how that might have altered the show.

    I'll be interested to see how NXT goes about crowning a new tag champion.

    Lashley ate three finishers. That guy is as good as gone, haha.

    If Bobby Lashley goes to Smackdown! who do you see him feuding with?

    My idea was to keep Miz on Smackdown! and have Lashley as Shane's McMuscle. Lashley/Miz would be a good filler feud until Miz could finally kill Shane in a Last Man Standing match or something.

    Now, I'm less sure.

    I also thought there'd be some good traction in an AJ Styles/Bobby Lashley feud, but that's not going to happen.

    Maybe Bobby/Luke Harper? Bobby/Samoa Joe?

    For those, like myself, that felt like tonight's show was a little lacking, it turns out a bunch of wrestlers weren't even at the show tonight as there was bad weather and a cancelled flight.

    Also Samoa Joe was backstage and a lot of people assumed he was going to move to Raw tonight but he was apparently kept off the show because he was sick as hell and they didn't think he was fit for tv.

    The show is reported to have been "heavily rewritten" at the last second.

    Which of course never happens to Raw.

    Well if it's to be any consolation, Vince is touting that we will see the biggest superstar move to Smackdown in history.

    So yeah. I'm thinkin' The Fashion Police.

    I'm having great fun imagining the fleeting joy on the face of whichever road agent it was that convinced Vince that War Raiders was a stupid, shit name. They've gone from being named after a packet of 10p crisps to being named after an unpopular educational Disneyworld attraction.

    War Raiders was a bad name in its own right, but that takes the biscuit. It's the name of a fucking OAP cruise.

    War Raiders was a good enough replacement for a name when they decided not to use War Machine. It was enhanced by the crowd chanting war as they came out.

    As it's been alluded, the rollout of the shakeup people was extremely underwhelming. They've really got to figure out a way to make this standout because they hyped it but it was just kind of there. The fact that Stephanie and Shane were present at the start and then just gone was dumb. Even if it didn't make a lot of sense, the year they had Shane/Bryan and Stephanie/Mick at podiums to make announcements made it feel more important.

    Have to imagine Roman and Braun are going to Smackdown. Roman because it makes sense from a star perspective (even though his reactions from Mania and after have been subdued) and Strowman because it makes sense to keep him apart from Sullivan for the time being and Strowman should be treated as a big deal.

    It's just a name, after all. It's not like their in ring work is worse or something. Still an awesome team.

    So, the former Erick Rowan is now Rowan and the former Rowe is now Erik.

    They should change the name of the show to Monday Night Rewritten.

    This Shake Up has sucked so far. Even with the travel issues, it feels like the laziest way to do a talent trade. It doesn't help when the announcers are all excited because "X" wrestler is now on RAW, only to say a few minutes later "Hey, we don't know, they could still end up on Smackdown tomorrow"

    The draft made the whole thing feel important. The shake ups are an after thought.

    I'm so confused...If they changed Rowe because he is so damn similar to Rowan. They why the fuck would they rename him to Erik?

    Because Rowan is never referred to as Eric anymore, so it was up for grabs. That means Mustafa and Cien Almas are available too

    I'm guessing its because Ivar(Ivar the boneless) and Erik(Erik the red) are some of the most famous Viking or Viking folk-lore names along with Leif, Ragnar, Sweyn, Bjorn, Egil, Gunnar, Harald, Ubba ect ect.. they probably just typed in "Viking names" in a search engine and picked from what popped up.

    to be honest I'm kind of surprised they didn't bring Sarah Logan into the fold during the shake up as a Lagertha, Freya, Blenda, Freydis or a generic shieldmaiden type of some sort

    The theme works for the team but the new name is so bad it makes the whole thing look cringy.
