Smackdown is laser focused on the Road to Wrestlemania and with an Elimination Chamber PPV this weekend (WWE really needs to take a look at the PPV schedule because the Royal Rumble was just 5 minutes ago!) this show has a lot of set-up to do in only 2 hours of television.
Samoa Joe has already broken one young WWE superstar as his attack on Seth Rollins has put Seth on the shelf for a while, and now he has his sights on the rest of the roster. Who is Joe gonna kill next? My money is on Roman Reigns.
We are on the Road to Wrestlemania, folks! And now that John Cena is once again the “Face That Runs The Place”, things are heating up on the blue show.
Its the Raw after the Royal Rumble PPV! Yeah! This is usually when a wrestling show will kick-off new storylines and feuds since all of the old stories should have either reached a conclusion at the PPV or had something so major happen that stories have changed in some way. So what are the odds that pretty much nothing has changed with our favorite Raw wrestlers and the Raw writers gave us not much new and exciting? Hmmm?

Now see Smackdown realized how you are supposed to end the go home show before a Royal Rumble PPV…instead of having 3 part-timers staring at one another for an uncomfortable amount of time what you do is have a lumberjack match that ends in all of the lumberjacks in the ring beating the hell out of one another.
The last Raw before the Royal Rumble so the expectation is that the WWE would deliver an action-packed show that would whet the appetite of fans for the Rumble PPV. Maybe a couple more entrants are named, possibly a new match or two…just about anything exciting. And if your idea of exciting is two 50 year olds in a stare down with a man who could probably cripple them both without breaking a sweat then this was the Raw for you!
Another Monday Night Raw has passed and like most weeks there is some good, some bad and man oh man is there some ugly. And with this being a Raw that aired on MLK Day the ugly was more bothersome to me than usual. But that doesn’t mean things were all bad. This show had some highlights that really worked so click onward and see what was what for this week’s 3 hour marathon of grown men rolling around on top of one another in their underpants.
