  2. Vince McMahon
  3. Shane McMahon


The Scoreboard

This Raw episode will get a 5 out of 10.

It’s a troublesome present to price as a result of a lot of it felt rushed with brief matches and run-ins all night time lengthy. There 5 matches that went round two minutes or much less. That’s too many brief matches that meant nothing in any respect.

The primary occasion was achieved nicely, so no less than they ended on a robust word. Is it a shock that the McMahons have been everywhere in the present and none of their segments have been rushed? In fact not. They all the time get time to get their angles over. I assumed Rock, Vince and Shane have been all nice from the promos to the match whereas the others did nicely too.

As a last Raw earlier than WrestleMania, they did push the WM matches arduous, however the lineup for that present was additionally harm by too many matches, particularly tag workforce matches.

Thanks for studying. My contact information is under. Go Los Angeles Rams.
