And now, the Best and Worst of WWE Raw for April 20, 2015.

Worst: PLEASE ALLOW ME TO EXPLAIN CAGE MATCHES

Raw opened with Randy Orton standing in a steel cage, and reminded me of two major problems:

1. There is no threat to cage matches in the PG Era. I’ve written about it a lot, but they’re just regular matches surrounded by a thing. You can’t believably rake the guy’s face across the wire because you aren’t allowed to bleed, and all the physical danger of being enclosed inside a giant weapon is replaced by the same visual as being tossed into a turnbuckle. Wrestling inside a Bed Bath & Beyond would be more dangerous, because there’s shit everywhere and if you got Irish whipped you could trip over it and hurt yourself.
