    This was the worst Raw in the recent memory.

    I think it was Brian Last who said that Vince needs to seriously step down. If not for himself but for his legacy and the legacy of his company.

    The only thing I worry about with Vince stepping down is I'm not 100% sold that WWE is the end all be all for Stephanie and Triple H. I worry that the company has become too corporate and decisions will be made the same way they are made in other corporate settings as it pertains to ownership.

    Travel into and out of Scotland of prohibited due to a rise in Covid cases, so I don't think that will work, lol.

    Lucha House Party referring to the Hurt Business: "We hate those guys."

    LHP are then nowhere to be seen when Riddle is getting his ass handed to him by said group that they hate.

    Lucha House Party's continued employment absolutely baffles me.

    They're not bad, but none of them are ever going to be more than an underneath talent. Kalisto had his shot at a solid midcard push and then "gonna do some cool...uhhh...Lucha stuff!" happened.

    My question is, why are these three goofs on RAW? If they were tearing it up in NXT's tag-team division, I'd get it. But on the big boy show, they're next to useless.

    How fucking crazy is that Covid-19 was on Vince's legendary list of banned words when all this mess first started, but now the company's World Champion is on TV talking about it and basically delivering a PSA?

    When Roman Reigns decided to take time off because of Covid health concerns, the WWE basically memory holed him for like two months. But Drew Mac gets TV time to tell people to wear masks and wash their hands.

    Its the thing JR used to say when guys would leave and come back; "Drew Mac went away for a few weeks to learn a new hold."

    First and foremost, good on them doing the right thing by not beating around the bush or sugarcoating with McIntyre and allowing him to portray the right message with the virus. That was the right move and I'm glad they actually did that.

    I wasn't excited by the idea of Triple H and Orton but I must say, they're quite good at hyping things between the two of them. It's a very stale story but they do a good job emoting and conveying the story. That also does speak to the glaring issue with WWE: Vince or whoever believes the audience won't remember shit but if you actually make good on long-term storytelling, it's a service to the story and the audience.

    So let me get this straight: WWE felt these stories was the best use of Charlotte? She suddenly came back for tag titles that were cold and instantaneously froze the women's title. On top of that, she's bickering with her father and elevating Lacey Evans (who hasn't been booked worth a damn)? This is the same Charlotte who was booked to be unstoppable for a long time and recently so when she was the NXT champion? What? Is this like Raw's version of the soap opera stuff, like Smackdown's Murphy and the Mysterios?

    From last week with Hardy:
    Quote Originally Posted by BGMaverick View Post
    Hardy is the proverbial punching bag now. He's had 17 matches on TV/PPV since September (four of them being tag matches). Of those 13 singles matches, he's only been victorious in two of them and they came at the expense of one opponent (Elias). Yikers.
    Add a loss and another win, again to Elias. Good stuff...

    Sheamus and Lee/Miz and Morrison was fine for what it was but it felt like absolutely no progression to the story. At least Lee got a win out of the singles match.

    McIntyre's promo in regards to Goldberg was fantastic. Calling him "Billy" was an extra layer of magnificence.

    Seems a little odd for them to announce Kingston is out with a broken jaw due to the battles with The Hurt Business and not having any video to support that. New Day is wilting away before our very eyes. Woods being left for fodder for Retribution isn't promising.

    Also seems odd WWE wouldn't promote that Lashley was putting his title on the line. Just burning through the freshness of that story as quickly as they can. Also weird that double duty was the theme of the night, as Riddle had to have two matches like Hardy did earlier (and Sheamus, Lee)

    Pearce might be holding a grudge against Gulak. Pearce wasn't about Gulak entering himself into the Rumble but Dana and Mandy were able to do that later. Gulak and Styles really didn't get enough time to have a good (for TV) match which is obviously a shame. Seems like it was there for the opportunity since they opted to have dudes wrestle twice on multiple occasions.

    Par for the course as they spent the episode hyping an impromptu main event and they really didn't even deliver it in full. They had the crutch of calling this a "fight" yet Triple H was gone for the continuing story with Alexa. I guess she won the fight!

    With the amount of folks pulling double duty tonight it makes you wonder if Drew might not be the only one with Covid concerns...

    Kalisto is no longer part of LHP. It's just Dorado and Metalik now. Don't you remember the captivating story of their split?

    Nope. Not at all.

    But that makes them even more irrelevant.

    Kalisto had a title match at a Wrestlemania. He's got a little equity built up as a talent. The other two dudes are the kind of luchadores who'd maybe make a WCW Worldwide taping back in the day.

    Quick hits:

    -Second consecutive pedestrian effort by the RAW writing staff to start the year.
    -That hoss fight between Lee/Sheamus was the best part of the show.
    -What the fuck is with this Flair family soap opera?
    -Wasting a rare HHH match on a last minute TV appearance is beyond asinine. Orton v Hunter is something that you advertise for 2+ months because you put it on the Mania card.
    -Why does nobody show up to at least try to even the odds against Retribution? Such lazy booking. No Ricochet appearance, huh? Cool...
    -Ali is trying his best to salvage a terribly booked stable.
    -Hardy v Elias and Ryker, Evans, Riddle v Lashley, Gulak, women’s tag match were all boring as shit.
    -Imagine if it were Goldberg that gave McIntyre COVID? Holy fuck. How tough do you think it was for Deplorable Vince to admit that his #2 guy has the Rona? It’s been a tough week in the McMahon household, I bet.

    It’s like Vince saw that they were up against the CFB National Title game and said “Fuck it, not even going to try.”

    Alexa Bliss could really learn a thing or two about throwing fire from James E, couldn't she?

    At least when Corny did it, he didn't have the benefit of multiple takes, special effects, and a closed set. And Ronnie Garvin went up like The Challenger.

    My son asked when Bliss learned to fire bend and when will the Fiend stop making people disappear. First Cena at WrestleMania at the end of their match and then Triple H last night.

    I watched a few things I missed on Monday. They really have nothing better for Mandy to do than take L's? Without the tag titles involved, this feud with Nia and Shayna is going nowhere, but let's keep beating Mandy.

    Dot com has one of the most unintentionally shit hook lines for next week's Raw that I've ever seen.

    "WWE Digital has learned that Randy Orton suffered minor burns to the face following the fireball attack by Alexa Bliss on Raw.

    The Legend Killer laid down a challenge for Triple H at the beginning of the night and was in a battle with The Game when Bliss emerged from the darkness.

    Don't miss Raw next Monday at 8/7 C on USA Network for the latest update on Orton's condition."

    An update! Can't wait to see if he needs sudocrem for a couple of scabs. Essential viewing.

    If they wanted to play it right, a Randy News Network update beginning with Randy appearing with his entire head covered like a mummy, so we don't know how bad the scars are. Then he should say so he consulted a legendary expert in recovering from burns - and cut to a segment with Kane - who says he's still pissed at Randy so he won't give him any advice...

    Randy will probably go on and on about how nobody in the back came to help him out. He had shown mercy to little Miss Bliss, and where does it get him? Never again will he show mercy to anyone.

    And somehow, Mercy the Buzzard will appear in the background, make some goofy comment, and Randy will destroy it.

    Considering the cut on his face disappeared instantly, I think he should be able to heal up just fine. Although I wouldn't mind him going full-on Kane and wearing a snake mask...

    I’d mark out for Santino as a surprise entrant in the Rumble though it’ll probably be Diesel again.
