The Best And Worst Of WWE Raw 7/21/14: Flo Rida Vs. Heath Slater II

Pre-show notes:

– Make sure you’ve read The Best And Worst Of WWE Battleground 2014. It’s just like last week’s Raw, only slightly longer.

With Spandex is on Twitter, so follow it. Follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook. You can also follow me on Twitter, because I sometimes talk about Glee and am easy to unfollow.

INSPIRE PRO WRESTLING happens this weekend in Austin. If you’re in town (or around town, or own a car or know what an airplane is) and can make it to the event on Sunday, please do.

If you want to see what we’re about, Smart Mark Video now has our May show available for purchase. I’m shilling it here because it’s the first event (ever, in real life) that I had a role in putting together creatively. If you like my wrestling writing, see how I do it in real life.

Worst: Handicap-O-Rama

The major complaint I had during the build to Battleground (and Battleground itself) was that it was all of Raw’s most tired tropes spaced out on a paper plate and reheated five f*cking times in a row. The opening to last night’s Raw was like a tribute to that build, cramming the handicap matches, lifeless bitch-shouting and depressingly static storylines into one half-hour bonanza. It was like the pre-show to a much better, two hour Raw.
