Classy Memorial Day opening.
Shane and Stephanie deliver the big announcement that SmackDown will begin airing live on Tuesday nights beginning July 19. Wait, that’s it? No more information?
The dance-off was bad entertainment. I was hoping for more on the brand split. I do like the tag team division getting rub by being first match up to start the show, even if it is another New Day vs. Vaudevillians rematch.
I love the fact that Anderson and Gallows interfered in the tag match and look to be getting the push they deserve, but am I supposed to forget they've lost more times than they've won since coming to WWE? They need to be the team to finally beat New Day and get their swagger back.
That was the best use of Big Show I've seen in the last five years.
I wish the Usos would have continued with the mean streak they showed in their feud with Anderson and Gallows. Instead we get the same old happy to be here Usos. Turns out they're just used to further along the feud between The Golden Truth and Breezango.
More boos than cheers for Reigns...big pop for Rollins. I am enjoying Rollins’ heel work. That segment probably didn’t work for most, but I didn’t mind it. Clearly WWE doesn’t eant to give too much away on a holiday show.
Rusev crush! I like it, hopefully they rebuild the Bulgarian Brute back up to where he was a few years ago.
Titus O’Neil...eh. Better than Cena though!
I didn't need to see the Charlotte and Ric Flair segment again...even with the added wrestler comments.
Enzo’s energy is unreal.
I'm all for Enzo and Cass getting the win, but the Dudleys have to win a match here and there for it to mean anything to the teams that win. And by the way, shouldn't Enzo and Cass want to get their hands on the Vaudevillians for injuring Enzo?
I didn't like the tone of the backstage promo between Cesaro, Dean Ambrose and Sami Zayn.
I liked Cena’s PBR designed shirt better than this one.
Oh man, Cena was waiting for a Welcome Back chant that never happened. That was awkward.
I'm digging seeing A.J. Styles and John Cena in the ring together. Dueling Let's go Cena and A.J. styles chants. Awesome.
YES! A Styles heel turn. I absolutely love it. That was extremely well done. Styles MUST win this feud.
Now Natalya has to put over Dana Brooke...ughhh. How many times is Natalya going to lose due to her getting distracted? Maybe it’s just me but doesn’t it make her look foolish?
Dolph is still stealing a show? He needs to go away for a while. Two things I'm tired of, 1. Enzo & Cass vs.the Dudleys in some fashion and, 2. Dolph Ziggler vs. Baron Corbin.
The promos on tonight's show are terrible.
Stupid Idiot chants during the main event. Now that’s funny, kudos Green Bay.
The main event was an enjoyable match. The crowd seemed burned out, but it was by far the best match of the night.
Tonights RAW was average at best. They didn’t advance any of the current storylines and if it wasn't for the Cena and Styles segment I would've given the show a thumbs down. I’m sure they’re thought process was to not load the show up in fear the ratings will be down due to the NBA’s Game 7 between the Warriors and Thunder, and to a lesser degree the first game of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals.
