WWE Low Hit
edge: Edge says he’s happy with the great things after Mizu did it 20 years ago, saying that Mizu’s character needs to be a champion, but talking about becoming a champion, knocking out I gave a blow. It’s far from Eminem’s delivery of kill shots to Machine Gun Kelly, which was pretty good for the modern WWE Dispromo.
WWE Champion Drew McIntyre vs Randy Orton Untitled Match: I went there and did it. I couldn’t shake that feeling when they advertised the match, or even while the match was taking place. So why is it in the hit section? I got something other than the Dark Magic Alexis Bliss finish. Raw has recently set the bar so low that it doesn’t take long to satisfy me.
Shane McMahon Cast: The idea of creating a sense of anything that could happen by giving Shane an unpromoted look was great. But that doesn’t explain why WWE failed to promote Edge, Bianca Belair, Keith Lee vs. Riddle, Table Match, Jeff Hardy vs. AJ Styles and more. It’s strange that a poorly rated company isn’t for sale, potential viewers watching their show.
AJ Styles vs. Jeff Hardy: Hits demand the quality of the match. Hardy’s story-telling knee injury gave him an out because he lost, but in the end it was yet another loss for the man heading for the Elimination Chamber title match with zero momentum. I can’t remember when Hardy last defeated anyone other than Elias.
Keith Lee vs. Riddle: A solid match with a definitive finish. It was certainly a strange way to reach both men who challenged Lashley in a triple threat match, so perhaps they should have avoided that decisive finish. Lashley destroyed Riddle almost every week, Lee beat Riddle cleanly, and for some reason Riddle got the same title shot as Lee in the Elimination Chamber. I’m curious if there are plans to have Lashley drop the US title without being pinned to release Lashley for a WWE Championship match at WrestleMania. Lashley’s winning the title shot will explain his recent succession of dominations as a secondary champion.
Damian Priest vs. Angel Garza: This was fine when the priest finished powerfully in the second low match. The story of Bad Bunny doesn’t help me at all, but I hope it attracts younger TV and social media viewers.
Asuka and Bianca Belair: A good behind-the-scenes segment that has established some tension between the raw champion and her potential challenger in WrestleMania. It’s interesting that Berea was paying homage, but Asuka said she wasn’t ready and photographed Berea’s face as she walked.
Overall show: It would probably be the worst professional wrestling TV show I’ve seen all week, but it had more redemption qualities than usual. Baby steps.
WWE Low Miss
Elimination Chamber Match: Regular suspects rally in WWE Championship matches within the structure of the Chamber of Commerce. I’m sure the match will be fun, but I’m starting to wonder if the company will start creating new stars in Raw. From a story point of view, Jeff Hardy and The Miz are constantly losing and will not be able to participate in the match.
Sheamus: New from one of the most turbulent betrayals in professional wrestling history in last week’s “That’s It?” Brogue Kick, Sheamus followed up by threatening to destroy people during a behind-the-scenes segment with Adam Pearce. Instead of writing a script to fulfill his promise, Sheamus accidentally hit Randy Orton with a brogue kick and was knocked out by Drew McIntyre’s claymore kick.
Charlotte Flair vs Lacey Evans: Rough match. I don’t know if there was a shortage of personnel during the Evans pandemic, but she was offnight. Still, he enjoys the strange story of Ric Flair working with Evans to fight his daughter. Especially because Charlotte needs to leave the comfort zone of her cliché royal propaganda.
Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods vs. T-Bar and Slapjack: Angry Mustafa Ali has gone too far, but gives me hope that retaliation will collapse so that faction members have a real chance to get over it by removing their masks. .. If that’s not the plan, I’m not sure why Newday gets over one with a T-bar and slapjack when retaliation desperately needs heat to get rid of this feud from the first gear.
Table Match Near Jacks vs. Lana: Her hole? All Jacks and Lana matches feel the same. Jacks destroys Lana, Lana throws some kicks, they go to the finish, and I don’t care who goes.
Sheena Basler vs Naomi: It’s sad to think of how great Basler was at NXT compared to how badly she was booked on the main roster.
