Things Are Heating Up: RAW Review

Last night, Raw was a decent episode and it was slightly better than weeks past I will provide my thoughts in addition to the results.

Cesaro & Sheamus prepare to defend their Raw Tag Team Championship against Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson.

Controversial finish

Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson have had numerous opportunities at the RAW Tag Team Titles. Therefore soon or later Gallows and Anderson need to capitalize on these golden opportunities.  These two teams have had incredible matches together. The bad news is that Cesaro and Sheamus declared for the Royal Rumble match. Anderson and Gallows held their own against the tag team champions. This match took a turn for the worst when Sheamus laid out a referee. A replacement referee came down in time to count a Magic Killer pinfall on Cesaro for the win. However, there was controversy because Gallows won via DQ but Sheamus and Cesaro still retained their RAW Tag Team Titles. Gallows and Anderson snapped and hit another Magic Killer on Sheamus.

Rivalry got personal

Charlotte Flair and Bayley feud are heating up just before their title match at Royal Rumble. The Queen showed once again why she is best in the Women division. Charlotte was a savage, as she read Bayley’s essay that was done when she was in high school as stated Bayley is just like an average WWE fan and she can’t keep up with her in the ring. Then Charlotte read one of Bayley’s poem and then threw it in the crowd. Bayley had enough and decided to come out and confront Charlotte on the mic.

But Strowman scores the win by powerslamming Zayn.

Main event

The main event was a six-man tag match that involved Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, and Sami Zayn against Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, and Bruan Strowman. I am getting sick of all these six man tag matches and I was not invested in this match at all even though it was a great match. The two final man in the match was Bruan Strowman against Sami Zayn Strowman was able to move out the way from the Helluva Kick and hit a Running Powerslam. After the match Owens powerbomb Reigns through the announce table.
