Balor Club vs Rollins/Roman/JJ for the RAW main event. Finn vs Roman's got to be one of the top matchups in WWE right now.

Shifting from Roman vs Joe to Roman vs Finn is an interesting move. I assumed that feud would make it to the Rumble. Balors two best main roster showings so far have been TV matches with Roman though so Im more than happy to see them go at it again

And they start the build to Miz v Roman also. Props to them not forgetting how Miz was written off

Holy crap, that segment with Braun/Kane/Brock was something.

Titus WorldWide beating Shemaus/Cesearo is major league head scratching.  But I will allow if it means Dana Brooke in that low low low cut business suit awkwardly dancing like a walking FCC violation  :D

I kind of like the Titus Brand as a modern day Raven's Flock of misfits.

Miz getting his own show, being the best promo in the world, being top 5 IC champ ever (and by 2019 he's gonna be THE #1 IC champ), and somehow some people don't think he is a star.

 

That man is a blessing.

Was Enzo a blade job? I know that there is some kind of rule against blood in this era of WWE, but the blood seemed to fit into the story of that match so well, how Enzo was basically beaten by Alexander to the point he couldn't make it back to the ring. It is Memphis after all. Also, I generally enjoyed tonight, but was bummed that I watched Raw for over 3 hours hoping to see Lawler and they didn't bring him on.

I thought that was a really good show again. Roman has so many irons in the fire. Its awesome, and one positive about such a long break between PPVs. Love zany Braun stuff and have really been enjoying Jason Jordan the past few weeks.

Oh, and I hope they are setting up Joe vs Cena for Mania. Would be thrilled for that.

If Enzo wasn't a blade job, I don't get the inconsistency with how they handle blood. They sure love pausing or ending Samoa Joe matches with hardaway blood.

If Enzo's ankle injury was a work (and I've read that it was), props to him - the selling was unreal.

 

As for the blood, I think it was hardway.

PWI says Joe is hurt.  He won the fan vote to be Bayley's partner in the MMC but can't compete.  Terrible news obvs. as he's been on fire lately.  And he was going to be programmed with Cena next.  Elias will be Bayley's partner

Random thought, but I liked the hot tag in the Bar vs. Worldwide match. It's simpl ething like not seeing both man slowy crawling to their respective corners that stand out in WWE.

 

Also, JJ is really good as delusional, in way over his head guy. Real fun to watch.

 

I hope Joe's injury isn't too bad, it would be such a shame not seeing him at Mania, he's definitely more than earned his spot.

Agreed been getting some 00-01 Angle vibes from him the last few weeks on the mic.

Enzo was bleeding from the eyebrow, looked like Cedric's boot (laces maybe?) caught him flush on that kick.  

 

 

Props to the wardrobing team, I don't know how Dana avoided a wardrobe malfunction while dancing in that outfit. I imagine the entire lining of her jacket was double sided tape. 

 

I loved Roman and Seth having dueling "This fucking guy...." faces while JJ was doing his promo. 

 

 

Also isn't it pretty weird that Gallows and Anderson have been the low team on the totem pole all of last year, and suddenly they are in the main event with Balor?  It wasn't even built up, he just named them as his partners and everyone just acted like they didn't spend the last 12 months jobbing to everyone.  I guess it was worth it just for the segment seemingly meant to troll Dave when they were namedropping Tama Tonga and Fale.

WWE is saying that Joe's injury is a plantar fascia rupture, which is not good news.  That's the tissue on the bottom of his foot. There is nothing that can be done surgically to repair that from what I have heard.  It is a very slow healing injury.  He'll be able to walk normally within a few weeks I would imagine, but athletic competition could be months away.  I would think the Rumble is definitely out for him, and Mania might also be off the table which would be heartbreaking, since he didn't get to compete last year either.

He's kind of unoffically-offically been working for them for a while now, I guess this is just them giving up any pretext that they're just doing a "promotions with benefits" thing.
