I didn’t do my weekly report on Raw and Smackdown last week because I thought both shows were boring and nothing really happened to progress anything. The pre-taped UK shows are always like that and they are just never must see TV.
Both Raw and Smackdown launched some new feuds or added to the heat this week to ones that were teased or are recent. I found both shows to be a really good reset after the Payback PPV and heading into the next Smackdown PPV, Backlash in less than two weeks.
I’m skipping my usual Raw/Smackdown thoughts feature this week as Raw was complete filler and Smackdown wasn’t too much better. I feel WWE has been treading water to get to this PPV just so they can really get down to the brand extension stories.
Two weeks into the “Superstar Shake-Up” and I’m a tad underwhelmed. This piece reflecting on this week’s shows will be way shorter than usual due to the fact that nothing really stuck with me besides a few things.
