At least a solid 9/10; if we had this Raw in front of a crowd akin to that of the post-WM Raw, it'd be even better. One of the best Raws in years, with a lot of solid progression towards the big PPVs of the summer and beyond. Cesaro joining Coulter, Ziggler and ADR committing to the double turn; Punk breaking away from Heyman, turning and fighting Lesnar; Christian coming back; Henry getting one last great run - it's like the writers took a look at my wish list and ran with some of it.
Would have dropped to an 8/10 if Bryan's injury wasn't a work/wasn't serious, but it is, so honestly, a 10/10. Tons of stuff happened, it kept a fast pace, created a lot of hype for MITB and beyond, no complaints at all.
11/10. It was.. PERFECT! Christian, Cesaro/Colter, Axel as IC Champ, Bryan/Orton feud, Henry/Cena awesome segment, Bork/Punk, Ziggler face and Del Rio heel, Sandow defeating Sheamus, Divas with an actual segment and story. So much going on in WWE right now.
Yup I HAVE to say 10/10. I was struggling to find a moment to take a piss break. AND I turned into a Henry and Lesnar smark, something Ii absolutely never thought I'd do. AND I enjoyed a Del Rio match. Like wtf is going on? There was nothing weak about the show, even the divas were quite entertaining.
Who else is credible besides Orton that Lesnar could face? At least with Punk returning face, the storyline is there.
To be fair, as long as Lesnar doesn't do the job, I'm okay with it. But that's what I'm scared of knowing this company had the same idiots booking Lesnar to lose his return match against Cena. Just hoping they don't pull the same bullshit against Punk too.
And I think Lesnar could also face Sheamus, Bryan and even Ryback other than Orton who is definitely credible enough.
I go 8/10 but that's not a bad thing - I just consider 10/10 perfection, which is something that shouldn't be handed out easily. Great show, I enjoyed the fuck out of it & Payback. Looking forward to the WWE, very excited to be honest.
9/10 only cause like a previous poster said there wasn't really a MOTN but still a great show overall. Someone need to be promoted fast or if it's the same crew of creative they finally stop smoking that new type of crack for once.
