I'll be honest, I was expecting Kurt Angle to insert himself into this main event tag.

This RAW has flown by though.

Goldberg shooting on the WWE Network out in the ring following RAW. Glad I stayed with it.

Watching the start of raw, I can't understand any of these chants aimed at Roman, except 'delete'. What are they saying? Was one of them 'strawberry float you roman?' I think one was 'shut the strawberry float up' :lol:

God vince is really ageing now. It's probably worse because we don't see him as often now so you notice the difference.

I'm annoyed there's a draft next week. I have tickets to take my son to SD live in may and he really wants to see AJ, I'm very confident he will switch to Raw.

That Raw was fantastic. The chants to Roman at the start were brilliant

I only caught the highlights, but Raw seemed really good. Definitely going to check out the full show later. There clearly needed to be a shake up to the rosters, with the Hardys and Revival seemingly joining Raw, and SmackDown's tag teams not even worthy of a tag match a Mania. I imagine it'll be a lottery rather than a full draft. The 2004 lottery was really fun.

Any chance we can get Entertainment folder tagged again? I only ever check the Entertainment tag for Stuff. Genuinely find the rest of Stuff the nadir of the forum. :shifty:

Yeah the whole shake things up sounded to me like just swapping a few people over rather than an actual draft.

I suppose though there's no guarantee that the revival are staying on Raw, they could have just had them on as it was the raw after mania and then they get moved to SD next week.

Will be funny if Nakamura turns up on SD tonight and everyone goes nuts about the Nakamura v styles possibility and then styles gets moved to raw next week.

Has anyone read this article, written by a women who had never watched wrestling before but decided to watch Wrestlemania, it's actually a very interesting and very in depth review. Obviously she really enjoys it.

Great read, nice to see it from a casual perspective.

Fantastic RAW and looks like they'll keep the momentum going forward if next week's lottery is anything to go by.

Loved the Angle/Cass/Enzo interaction. "Thas not how you spell soft" was pure Angle perfection.

Did you notice he had his cowboy hat in the box in that skit?

Amazing really as Taker retires and was kind of the last of his generation and then up pop the Hardys and Angle makes a return!

Yeah i noticed the hat, that was a great addition.

One thing on Reigns, i'm now starting to find myself liking him just because certain crowds like last night hate him so much.

That was fun. This...

Brock wins. He looks like something that climbed out of the Earth's molten core and yelled "I'M HERE, mummy strawberry floaters!!!!" instead of being born.


... is the most accurate description of Brock Lesnar I've ever read :lol:

That opening segment of Raw was amazing, I like Roman more the fewer strawberry floats he gives.

Yup on The Law they were saying that Roman doesn't need to overtly turn heel as his current character already has that effect. I totally agree with that, just keep doing what they are doing.

It's completely turned the character around from a bloody terrible face run to a really interesting and hated heel. I don't remember anyone being as hated as that since maybe Flair came over initially from WCW, or some of the early Mr Mcmahon stuff.

Yep, i think he just needs to keep shrugging his shoulders and carrying on. Scrap any attempt at being a happy, good guy face. It would be very entertaining if the crowds were like this every week but obviously that's not going to be the case.

I thought this part about the Orton v wyatt match was great

I think this match is a big deal, like, a championship or something? But it’s really boring. After the ladders, Seth’s pain, the women’s badass fight, Triple H’s entrance, and all the buildup surrounding this match, I’m pretty disappointed.

I don’t even remember who won and it just ended.

4th straight night on just 3ish hours sleep. Feeling like The Undertaker. I don't know how the Vince McMahon and Rock's (supposedly) of this world pull this gooseberry fool off on a daily basis.

Hopefully SmackDown/205 Live ends this weekend on a high note.
