Raw Live Coverage And Discussion

Raw takes place tonight in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Announced already for tonight is Ronda Rousey's appearance and Elias vs. Braun Strowman.

The Who's is kicked off with Kurt Angle coming to the ring. A recap of Rousey's debut and her appearance on Raw last night is shown. Angle says that sometimes he has realized he must do what's best for business and he calls out HHH. Stephanie McMahon comes to the ring and begins to ask Angle about his kids. Stephanie runs down Angle's accomplishments, she then asks if his accomplishments pay the bills. Stephanie tells Angle to know his role and that they are even now, this leads to Rousey coming to the ring. Rousey gives the entire front row a high five and then hugs Kurt Angle. Stephanie goes for a hug and she gets a handshake, Rousey can't cut a promo because the crowd is chanting "Ronda Rousey". Stephanie tells Rousey that she gave her, her dream opportunity.

    It’s Monday… who wants to chat with Stephen ?

    • Ja’ Von York

      Howdy

    • Tiffany

      Hello!!!

      • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

        What’s up!

        • Tiffany

          Trying to finish up a report for work about a shop that could’ve gone better.

      • Ja’ Von York

        Hey

        • Tiffany

          *Waves*

          • Ja’ Von York

            🙋🏿‍♂️🙋🏿‍♂️🙋🏿‍♂️

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    What match are you most looking forward to tonight?

    • Ja’ Von York

      Asuka vs Nia and Braun vs Elias

      • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

        Symphony of destruction will just be random items around the ring right?

        • Ja’ Von York

          I’m guessing it’s just random instruments around the ring

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Raw has been on a bit of a hot streak, think it continues tonight?

    • Ja’ Von York

      Yes of course

    • Tj Siren

      It better!

      • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

        Well we all know if it has abs….

        • Tj Siren

          Too Sweet!

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Does BTE drop tonight or tomorrow?

    • Ja’ Von York

      What’s BTE

      • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

        Being the elite.

        • Ja’ Von York

          Oh well idk about that

  • Ja’ Von York

    Seems like Cena is doing both shows now cause they just announced him for the show tonight

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      Gotta keep the scent off his Wrestlemania opponent

      • Tiffany

        I still say Vince is going to find a way to squeeze him into the WWE Title match, but may try to throw us off by having him challenge Roman.

        • Tj Siren

          I hope not.

          • Tiffany

            I can see it happening. I’d rather Cena go for #17 than another trainwreck(and I’m saying this as a huge fan of Taker’s) Undertaker match.

          • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

            Choo choo

          • Tiffany

            Last year’s trainwreck was bad enough. I’d rather have that be the end than sit through another one and remember when the Taker match was always THE must see match on the Mania card, not another round of a broken down old man entertaining fans who seem to think he should still be able to move like it’s 1998.

          • Tj Siren

            Yeah. I just want my one on one AJ and Shin lol

          • Tiffany

            I think Vince will give Cena #17 instead of the Taker match.

  • Tiffany

    Watching Becky beat James Ellsworth never stops being great.

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      Jimmy E should have been the first 205L champion 😁

      • Ja’ Von York

        This!

      • Tiffany

        Sad thing is, he’s slightly more talented than Enzo.

  • Ja’ Von York

    LET’S GO!!!

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Here we go!!!!

  • Tj Siren

    I can’t wait for the slightest interaction between Sasha and Bayley tonight.

  • Ja’ Von York

    Kurt Angle kicks us off tonight

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    We get full clappy Uncle Angle entrance.

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    • Ja’ Von York

    • Tj Siren

      Yes. Started off with a bang.

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Shes SO DAMN HAPPY!

    • Tj Siren

      I love it!

    • GirlsCanHoop2

      can you blame her? she’s fulfilling her dream

      • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

        Not at all. It’s awesome to see.

    • Tiffany

      Yeah, she’s every fan that gets to live the dream. Watching her go from smiley to ass kicker is hilarious too.

  • Ja’ Von York

    Asuka vs Nia Jax is next how will Asuka win tonight

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      DQ

      • Ja’ Von York

        We said that when they faced off at elimination chamber and Asuka proceed to roll up Nia

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    Ronda’s getting better and better every week with these segments

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Coachman named in sexual allegation lawsuit.

    • GirlsCanHoop2

      please be wrong

    • Ja’ Von York

      Flase right?

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      Tweeted

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Tweeting out the story in a min.

  • Ja’ Von York

    34 DAYS TILL MANIA

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    Man I can’t wait to watch WM34 with y’all. These chats be lit

    • Ja’ Von York

      Me too I love these chats get to meet new people and get to read others opinions and chat about all things wrestling

  • Tiffany

    I’m getting on the Rousey bandwagon, I paused RAW so I could see her get her hands on Steph, I never do that.

    • Ja’ Von York

      Great moment I’m recording RAW and I’m gonna rewatch that segment again tomorrow

      • Tiffany

        I always DVR RAW, but always delete it after. I rewound and paused right before Ronda grabbed Stephanie because I had to dry dishes and didn’t want to miss it.

  • Tj Siren

    I hate to be the debby downer but how long you guys think before the crowd turns on Rousey? Or before they turn her heel?

    • GirlsCanHoop2

      please don’t make me think about this lol

      • Tj Siren

        You’re right lol

        • GirlsCanHoop2

          you better stop being the debby downer lol

          • Tj Siren

            I’m done. It just feels too good to be true lol.

    • AndreaPin

      Once that bridge gets here then we can discuss that. But I believe yes the crowd might turn on her but she has alot of fans that root for her.

    • Tiffany

      I think it’ll be a slow burn until after Mania.

  • Ja’ Von York

    What is the reason for Mickie being with Alexa please explain that to me WWE

    • Tj Siren

      Lack of heels I’m assuming. I think Mickie is faking it for now.

      • Ja’ Von York

        The RAW’s women division already has 5 heels so idk about that but either way I need them to explain it on TV

        • Tj Siren

          Alicia is injured..the absolution girls aren’t ready for titles. Nia was the only other one left that could potentially be built up. And I’m sure it’ll come out soon on tv. It doesn’t make sense so that’s why I’m assuming Mickie is faking.

    • GirlsCanHoop2

      friends close, enemies closer my dude

      • Ja’ Von York

        I think that’s what’s going on their too

  • JoeFlex

    Finally Made it

    • Ja’ Von York

      What’s up

      • JoeFlex

        Enjoying Asuka, Rowsey, and Nia

  • JoeFlex

    I love a classic gorilla press

  • Tj Siren

    Nia is throwing Asuka left and right. She’s looking good.

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    Nia finally consistently doing power moves. love it

    • Ja’ Von York

      Improving ever time she is out there

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    why?

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    I love the chemistry with these two.

    • JoeFlex

      It was great. Nia get’s closer and closer each match. Does she end the streak?

      • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

        Could be cool at like Mania next year.

      • Tj Siren

        Nia could definitely use that rub. I don’t see it tho.

      • JoeFlex

        I agree. Nia should get that rub. Asuka is good enough to eventually eat losses and be okay but Nia needs something big.

  • Ja’ Von York

    That was a great match

  • Tj Siren

    I’m so proud of Nia. She’s growing so much in the ring. I hope she gets her big Mania moment.

    • Ja’ Von York

      Me too

      • Tj Siren

        There’s almost no way to not have her in a title match this year.

        • Ja’ Von York

          True but how do they put her in the RAW Title match the only way I see that happening is if Asuka challenges Charolette

  • Tiffany

    Nia should’ve won.

  • Ja’ Von York

    That auidcene should be praising Nia right now she put on one hell of a match

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    oh yay…. Cena tonight. I’m not feeling seeing him twice a week

    • Tiffany

      It’ll probably be that way until after Fastlane…hopefully.

  • Tj Siren

    I’m seeing twitter people saying Nia face turn. What do you guys think?

    • GirlsCanHoop2

      I wouldn’t mind it, but idk if that’s what they’re gonna do

      • Tj Siren

        Yeah I don’t think so either. that’s too many turns/turn teases.

    • JoeFlex

      I’ve said from the beginning that she should be a face.

    • Ja’ Von York

      I don’t think they are going to do that just yet but the thing with Nia in the ring after the match could be planting seeds and testing the waters for the possibility of a face Nia

  • JoeFlex

    WHY ARE THE REVIVAL GETTING THE JOBBER ENTRANCE

    • Ja’ Von York

      TRAVESTY

      • JoeFlex

        Dinkleberg…..

        • GirlsCanHoop2

          AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

        • Ja’ Von York

          😂😂😂😂

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      Doesn’t mean what it used too

    • Tiffany

      Because that’s the level they’re at RN. When you miss the better part of your first year on the MR due to injuries, you don’t get a TV entrance.

      • JoeFlex

        Unacceptable

        • Tiffany

          Sorry, but they’ve lost a ton of momentum because they missed so much due to one of them getting injured and then the other one getting hurt shortly after the first one got back, so they get a jobber entrance.

          • Ja’ Von York

            This!

          • JoeFlex

            I get it. I just don’t like it.

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    Daaaaaaang it’s almost been a year since Matt & Jeff returned at WM. That ladder match was fun to watch

  • Ja’ Von York

    If the revival win they challenge for the titles at mania let’s hope they win tonight

  • Tiffany

    Okay, who do we honestly see taking on The Bar at WrestleMania?

    • JoeFlex

      Revival…please?

    • Ja’ Von York

      The Revival and The Club

      • JoeFlex

        Can Finn help the Club win? full blown heel

        • Ja’ Von York

          Balor club is face right now

          • JoeFlex

            They’d be better heels. It’d be rrrreeeeeeeaaaaaaalllll

      • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

        This

    • AndreaPin

      Revival will be an awesome match up but also if it’s the Club then it would be awesome!

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    Revival haven’t been interesting since NXT

    • Ja’ Von York

      That’s due to injuries

      • GirlsCanHoop2

        plenty of people have come back from injuries and stayed relevant tho

    • Tiffany

      Losing a year due to injuries will do that to you.

    • AndreaPin

      Yeah those injuries will get yea. I forgot about them.

  • Tiffany

    Cesaro seriously whiffed that European Uppercut.

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    This match is really good!

  • JoeFlex

    This has to lead to a call up right??

  • Tiffany

    So much for that.

  • Tiffany

    Okay, well, Cena’s going to rant and rave for 15mins so I’ll be able to finish these reports and not miss anything.

    • JoeFlex

      Piss Break John

      • Tiffany

        Pretty much. I won’t miss anything important while he yaps, so my reports can get finished.

    • Ja’ Von York

      Right I’m still doing homework

      • Tiffany

        I’m finishing up reports for work, but I keep pausing for RAW. With Cena on, I’ll be able to finish in peace.

        • Ja’ Von York

          Same

  • Ja’ Von York

    The only team left is the club to face the bar how will the revival become apart of that match at mania

  • Tiffany

    The hell did I just watch?

    • JoeFlex

      WWE Studios Presents: Piggybacking

    • Ja’ Von York

      Stranger Things at night

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    This horror movie promo is dope

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Cena up next…. what’s he say?

    • JoeFlex

      Nothing interesting

    • GirlsCanHoop2

      nothing of importance

    • Tiffany

      Blah blah blah blah.

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      Blah blah… undertaker reference….blah blah?

      • GirlsCanHoop2

        blah blah… fastlane… blah blah

  • JoeFlex

    Cricket Wireless Commercial is the closest Ziggler comes to the WWE Title

  • JoeFlex

    “Hi, I’m John Cena. Please watch Fastlane. *Thumbs up*”

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    They did the deep camera pan in

    • Tj Siren

      John Cena is looking into our souls

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    uhhhhhhhhh

  • Ja’ Von York

    Goldust???

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Cena red herring us with the triple threat.

  • Tiffany

    Well, this just got random, but I am intrigued.

  • Tj Siren

    I don’t know how to feel right now lol

  • JoeFlex

    John Cena beats Golddust just because?

  • Tiffany

    Goldust never got a Mania moment, unless you count getting stripped down to women’s lingerie and getting his privates grabbed by Roddy Piper.

  • Ja’ Von York

    Thoughts on Goldust having a major match on the mania card

    • Tj Siren

      Random but I’d be interested. I love Goldust..

    • Tiffany

      Unless you count the mess that was his match with Roddy Piper at Mania XI or XII, Goldust has never had a Mania moment, I would be down for him getting a big last hurrah.

  • Tiffany

    If this random thing actually ended in a Mania match and moment for Goldust, I would be so in.

    • Ja’ Von York

      Me too this came out of left field but could work if done properly

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    soooooooooooooooooooo

  • Ja’ Von York

    Wrong time for a commercial break

  • Ja’ Von York

    This is a first time ever match between these two

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      That’s crazy to think.

      • Tiffany

        Not really. Goldust was on RAW when Cena was getting his start on SmackDown and by the time Cena went to RAW, Goldust had left and when Goldust came back, it was either a one off or he and Cena were in different divisions.

    • Tj Siren

      Like how has this never happened at least once

  • Tiffany

    The wily Goldust, as JR would say.

  • JoeFlex

    Like I thought, John Cena beats Golddust just because.

  • Ja’ Von York

    Poor Goldust

  • Tiffany

    Goldust should’ve gotten that win. It wouldn’t cost Cena anything.

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      Except he’s going for the WWE title Sunday

      • Tiffany

        So? It actually would’ve generated more interest if Goldust had won and Goldust is a great competitor.

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    I’ll get fast lane predictions tomorrow

  • Ja’ Von York

    They should’ve made the main event at Fastlane a championship scramble match if they were gonna add cena to the match

  • JoeFlex

    Ah yes, the Symphony of Destruction match. This is what you get when you take a mortal man and put him in control.

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    I wanna see Elias hit Strowman with a flute.

    • Ja’ Von York

      Lol yes I want to see that

  • JoeFlex

    When Brock is done with WWE, can Paul go back to writing?

  • Ja’ Von York

    Bayley is next oh boy what’s gonna happen what does she have to say about leaving Sasha mid match

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Bayley….. looking like the girl next door after the makeover in a 90s romcom

    • JoeFlex

      Bayley is best.

      • Ja’ Von York

        LANA IS THE BEST. LANA NUMBER 1

        • JoeFlex

          BAYLEY IS BEST. LANA NUMBER 2

          • Ja’ Von York

            Don’t let Lana hear you say that

  • Ja’ Von York

    I hope Bobby Fish is cleared in time for TakeOver

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      Left on crutches

      • Tj Siren

        Can Cole take his place?

        • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

          I would think he does.

        • Ja’ Von York

          Cole doesn’t look like to have anything going for him at TakeOver so why not right

  • Tiffany

    So happy for Hillbilly Jim. One of the characters I remember best from my childhood.

    • JoeFlex

      Hillybilly Jim is before my time but I was surprised he wasn’t already in.

      • Tiffany

        I think he fills the ‘Character’ spot in the slate.

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    I would have thought he was already in the HOF tbh

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    What a cast going into the HOF

    • Tj Siren

      It’s shaping up quite nice. Happy for Ivory.

    • Ja’ Von York

      STACKED

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    “Gods greatest creation Mandy Rose”

    • JoeFlex

      Corey is the absolute best.

  • Ja’ Von York

    SING ALONG TIME

  • Tiffany

    I’m over Absolution, Riott Squad is the better of the teams in my opinion.

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Bayleys promos…. :/

    • JoeFlex

      She never got a chance.

    • GirlsCanHoop2

      hot garbage

  • Tj Siren

    Paige doing that ponytail took me out

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Couch kareokee

    • Ja’ Von York

      🎶WOOOOAAHHH TEAR THE STARS OUT FROM THE SKY🎶

  • JoeFlex

    I’d rather listen to Bayley give an hour long promo than listen to Paige talk for another 5 minutes

    • GirlsCanHoop2

      heck no. Bayley’s promos are trash

      • JoeFlex

        I’m aware, but her voice doesn’t make want to clean my ears with an icepick like Paige’s

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Graves is PG Lawler

  • Ja’ Von York

    Did Pagie not get the tattoo?

    • Tj Siren

      Makeup

      • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

        Makeup on hands?

        • Tj Siren

          From what I’ve seen..yes.

        • Tj Siren

          You can see her tattoos on her ig.

          • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

            No I believe you. Just foreign to this dude.

          • Tj Siren

            Yeah. Women have magic tricks lol.

      • Ja’ Von York

        Oh ok

    • Tiffany

      WWE’s making her wear make up to cover them up.

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    This Raw has gone by quickly so far.

    • Tj Siren

      Really? Feels slow to me lol

    • Ja’ Von York

      This show has flown by

  • Ja’ Von York

    The women have dominated the show so far tonight

    • JoeFlex

      It’s pretty great.

    • Tj Siren

      They’ve got the best stories going so far for Mania.

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Rose looking good…IN RING tonight.

    • JoeFlex

      SHe’s been improving quite a bit. Glad to see it.

    • Ja’ Von York

      She is improving and holding her own against Bayley right now

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Banks…. stays face.

  • Ja’ Von York

    Trust issues

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    NO HUG?

    • GirlsCanHoop2

      not tonight

    • Tj Siren

      Slow burn. I love it.

    • JoeFlex

      Sasha: “Sorry I’m a jerk always. Hug?”
      Bayley: “Don’t patronize me!”

      • Ja’ Von York

        To the tee this is basically that whole after match segement

        • JoeFlex

          And it’s perfect. We should get heel Sasha vs Tough Face Bayley. I can’t wait.

  • Tiffany

    Should someone tell Miz that ‘annual’ means a year, not ever six months?

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      The most must see awards show

      • Tiffany

        By whom? I’d rather watch Mony Python’s Golden SPAM awards.

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    This Banks/Bayley storyline is great, for the potentially FORTH women’s angle going into Mania.

    • Tiffany

      And it’s not for a title or a gimmick.

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Is it possible we get Bliss/Banks/Bayley and Asuka/Charlotte?

    • JoeFlex

      We shouldn’t. Sasha/Bayley should be a 1 on 1 grudge match.

    • JoeFlex

      However, Jax/Bliss/James? or just Jax/Bliss?

  • Tiffany

    I get the feeling Bayley/Sasha is going to be what Rollins/Ambrose was going to be before Ambrose got hurt.

    • Ja’ Von York

      This!

      • Tiffany

        Don’t get me wrong, I WANT Rollins/Ambrose, but Bayley/Sasha is giving me the vibe.

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    Bliss is a horrible motivational speaker lol

    • Tiffany

      I think that’s the point.

      • GirlsCanHoop2

        i knowwwwwwwwwww

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Bliss patronizing Jax… oh?

    • JoeFlex

      Perfect heel work.

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Bliss v Jax, Charlotte v Asuka?

  • Tiffany

    What is with WWE and making larger athletes cry?

    • GirlsCanHoop2

      meaning…..?

      • Tiffany

        Big Show had the thing for awhile of crying at the drop of a hat and now they’re doing it to Nia.

        • GirlsCanHoop2

          nothing wrong with crying

          • Tiffany

            I’m over WWE making it a thing they do to the larger wrestlers.

          • GirlsCanHoop2

            it doesn’t even happen that often

  • Ja’ Von York

    I’m about to cry for real y’all

  • JoeFlex

    Face Nia. Body Positivity FTW!

  • Tj Siren

    Alexa is good. Must have been kind of tough to do that to her bestie in real life knowing they both have had body issues.

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Rousey has that look!

    • JoeFlex

      The question is if they give her a slam-like finisher or stick to strikes and submissions

      • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

        My guess is a slam and a submission.

    • Tiffany

      It’s like my dad said ‘That chick is mean and she scares me.’

    • Tiffany

      My biggest concern is if Rousey can learn to work enough to not seriously hurt Stephanie.

  • JoeFlex

    lol Words on the screen

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    THE GRAPHICS

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    GRAPHICS

    • JoeFlex

      I’ve stopped caring, it worked.

    • Ja’ Von York

      😑😑😑

    • GirlsCanHoop2

      yaaaaaaasssssssssssss

  • JoeFlex

    Corey Graves committing gimmick infringement by dropping song references. I’m down.

  • Ja’ Von York

    That promo was AMAZING

  • Tiffany

    Me seeing ‘Symphony of Destruction’: Is Kindred Spirits still on?

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Strowman v Elias…. who ya got?

    • Tj Siren

      Strowman

    • Ja’ Von York

      Strowman

  • Ja’ Von York

    Elias is on the piano tonight

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      I remember seeing him during the infancy of his gimmick in NXT. Amazing what he’s become

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    He better get up off that piano. Braun ain’t playing around these days

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      Elias gonna catch den hands

      • GirlsCanHoop2

        right

  • Ja’ Von York

    Great you know how to play rockband

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      Ha!

    • GirlsCanHoop2

      don’t hate the player, hate the game

      • Ja’ Von York

        Haha!

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Elias is so over.

    • JoeFlex

      To say he’s above heel/face isn’t enough credit. He IS heel/face

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Ha! This place sucks HA!

  • JoeFlex

    Elias is a genius

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      Smart, smart man!

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    I love all of this!

  • Ja’ Von York

    This! This! All of this!

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      “I told you I ain’t finished with you yet”

  • JoeFlex

    We need a Corey Graves Megadeth reference counter

  • Tj Siren

    Braun and Elias is the feud I never knew I wanted/needed.

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    BRUTAL guitar shot

  • JoeFlex

    Graves need’s to hurry and finish googling Megadeth references

  • Ja’ Von York

    Corey is terrible telling coach to get in there

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    That bass shot!

    • Ja’ Von York

      Ridiculous

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Strowman just dropped a piano on a man

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    No Reigns?….

    • JoeFlex

      No man, they want people to enjoy the show.

      • Tj Siren

        lmao don’t do Reigns like that. He did good last week.

        • JoeFlex

          It was too easy lol.

          He’ll probably show up during Heyman’s segment.

    • Tj Siren

      At least we have Heyman. No Rollins so far either.

      • Ja’ Von York

        The Mizzies are tonight so….

        • Tj Siren

          Oh I missed that preview. Ok taking note. I’ll see my Rollins and Balor.

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      Panicked he will be in main event… whew

      • Tiffany

        Who is he up against?

        • Ja’ Von York

          Paul Heyman

  • Tj Siren

    Well we did get a symphony and destruction.

  • JoeFlex

    Someone needs to take Elias’ pulse before his head explodes

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Mizzies up next!!!

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      I guess not

      • JoeFlex

        Bray has to destroy Heath and then get attacked by MAtt first

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    One of the coolest in person entrances ever.

    • JoeFlex

      I’d love to see it. Never been to a show

      • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

        It’s amazing.

    • Tj Siren

      I’m so mad when I went to Raw he was doing the big screen promos on Balor so I didn’t get to witness it in person.

      • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

        Damn

    • GirlsCanHoop2

      agreed

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Cole putting over Wyatt as more aggressive makes me happy.

  • JoeFlex

    The only issue with this is it’ll become another Wyatt loss at Mania. I know Matt has to win but geez.

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    That music tho

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    THE HARDY COMPOUND!

    • JoeFlex

      MY BODY IS READY

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    *yawn*

  • Ja’ Von York

    YES YES YES

  • Ja’ Von York

    I’m officially reinvested

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    OMG is Wyatt going to go into the lake and come out as Husky Harris?

    • JoeFlex

      I would lose my shit.

    • Ja’ Von York

      PLZ MAKE THIS HAPPEN I WOULD BE DONE

    • Ja’ Von York

      THIS!!!!

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Will Wyatt walk in with Hardy playing a piano?

    “Bray, I knew you’d come”

    • Ja’ Von York

      THIS!!!

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Those jackets Bo And Axel are wearing are next level great

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    O….M…..G!

  • Tj Siren

    They didn’t have to do Balor like that lmao I’m mad

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      Done dirty

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    I’m dying right now.

    • GirlsCanHoop2

      LOL

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    I am dying lol

    • Ja’ Von York

      😂😂😂😂

  • Ja’ Von York

    So much shade being thrown right now

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      Call it an eclipse.

  • Tj Siren

    Miz flaming everybody

    • GirlsCanHoop2

      speaking of flames

      • Tj Siren

        Burn it down

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    BURN IT DOWN

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      BURN IT DOWN

  • Ja’ Von York

    Damn Seth giving me a heart attack BURN IT DOWN

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    That shirt is So. DAMN. Clean.

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Blue Balor

    • Tj Siren

      I love colors.

  • Ja’ Von York

    Blue Finn

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    tag team match playa

  • Ja’ Von York

    MIZ IS OUT HERE ROASTING THESE TWO

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    Dang he went there

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    Seth got a beard trim

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Over, Japan, Hand sign….

    • GirlsCanHoop2

      hope you enjoyed your anniversary btw

      • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

        I did. It was fantastic. A Twitter fam hooked me up with this lovely winery bistro.

        • GirlsCanHoop2

          oooohhhh nice!

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    Would love to see Axel have another solid singles title run

    • Tiffany

      I think those days are over unless they bring back something like the European title.

      • GirlsCanHoop2

        nah i don’t think so. US title or IC title could work

        • Tiffany

          Axel’s problem is that he’s got his dad’s talent but none of the charisma.

  • Tiffany

    My unpopular take, the only reason Miz is relevant right now is because RAW has no full-time top champion. What’s going to happen when the Universal Title is back full time?

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      I hate to disagree. He made SDLive relevant last year.

      • Tiffany

        Not really. It was relevant because he worked with stars who were more popular: Ambrose and Cena, not because he said or did anything different.

        • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

          I love me some numbers. I did an article after the epic talking smack rant. He was consistently peaking ratings and dominating YouTube numbers. He’s the reason I started putting stock in them

          YouTube numbers up… more t.v. time. Enzo was another.

          • Tiffany

            Enron put out great numbers too, but look what happened. Miz has been cutting the same promo and doing the same character for ten years. He’s relevant because of who he’s working with and because the Universal Title is out of the picture, not because fans have suddenly realized his so-called brilliance.

          • JeanVice

            lol, you’re kidding right? Mix has clearly NOT been doing the same gimmick for 10 years (or 12). Go back to when he first joined the main roster, back to when he was WWE champion. Back to his previous IC reigns. Sure, he’s been a consistent heel, but he knows how to keep things moving forward. He’s easily one of the best things about Raw at the moment. He makes the IC title worthwhile.
            And I’m sorry, but Ambrose’s character is much better on paper. “Lunatic Fringe”? Please. His title run was disappointing.

  • JoeFlex

    I’m out, folks! See y’all tomorrow.

    • Tj Siren

      Have a good night!

    • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

      ✌❤🤘

  • Ja’ Von York

    Triple threat for the IC Title at Mania

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    This works out perfectly. If Maryse ends up having her baby, just make it Finn vs Seth

    • Tiffany

      It does if they also substitute someone for Miz and keep it a Triple Threat.

      • GirlsCanHoop2

        3rd person isn’t needed. the friendly rivalry/competition between Finn and Seth is enough to make it a 1 on 1

        • Tiffany

          If they make it a superstar returning, it’ll make it special. Balor/Rollins on a big PPV isn’t special.

  • AwesomePhinatic_RawViews

    Triple Threat IC Match announced for WrestleMania. Early MOTN potential.

  • Ja’ Von York

    Hypping Fastlane on RAW that’s so sad

  • Ja’ Von York

    This will be Finn’s first WrestleMania this year

  • Ja’ Von York

    Did Paul just say Summerslam

    • Tiffany

      Hogan got away with calling the Superdome the Silverdome.

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    ruh roh

    • Tiffany

      What’d he say?

      • GirlsCanHoop2

        bull****

  • Tiffany

    Can Roman hurry up and get out here?

  • Tiffany

    Oh good, this just got interesting.

  • GirlsCanHoop2

    have a great night everyone! see y’all tomorrow!
