Raw has been doing a decent job from the last couple of weeks and they’ve even beaten Smackdown (in terms of ratings) in the previous two weeks. They’re doing a great job in boosting up the WrestleMania storylines and feuds. Last week, we saw a surprise appearance of the Heart Break Kid Shawn Michaels, a good promo war between Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens, Paul Heyman’s cutting a great promo on the feud between Brock Lesnar and Goldberg and other interesting stuff too. So what to expect from this week’s Raw?
Let us first talk about the Universal championship; we hope to see a promo from Goldberg this week. Well, Goldberg is not doing a very good job with the mic but hopefully we see a confrontation between the two athletes this week.
Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns are going to have their final chapter this week. Strowman has to win this match by any means. Roman Reigns winning this match too would head to a potential burial for ‘the monster among men.’ The Undertaker costing Roman the match would make sense as it would give the feud a good boost too and it would not affect Roman’s career much.
Samoa Joe hasn’t been given any legit feud going into WrestleMania so far. ‘The Destroyer’ needs a match for WrestleMania to get his momentum going. Hopefully, they are building up a Samoa Joe vs. Sami Zayn match for WrestleMania 33. Their previous match was good but it was more of a push of Joe and a burial for Zayn and hopefully, their WrestleMania match does not bury Zayn.
The United States championship angle between Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho is having a great boost, but it needs to involve the championship price a little more. They are just concentrating on the feud, it is not good for the prestige of the title.
Moving on to the Women’s championship angle; Bayley being the babyface champion losing every week is not a good look for the title and their scheduled match, especially, when we talk about WrestleMania. Bayley either needs to stop fighting or she needs some victories.
And the final chapter of the week, which is the most anticipated thing to check out this week is how they build up Seth Rollins – Triple H feud this week. Last week, Rollins attacking Triple H was a bit shocking and Triple H stood at the end by concentrating on Seth’s injured knee was even more shocking. It would be really interesting to see how the two sides respond, and also what would be Mick Foley’s involvement in this feud? It’s going to be really exciting.
