Worst: A Raw Re-Run

So, I gave Raw a pass for a lot of things I’d normally complain about because I considered it a “rebuilding” show. The build for Survivor Series made everything about Raw vs. Smackdown to the point that Braun Strowman was helping Roman Reigns win fights, so it was like, borderline non-canon. I can’t do the same thing for Smackdown, though, because … well, they just re-did Raw.

Remember how Raw started with a McMahon in the ring, talking about how they feel about what happened with their sibling at Survivor Series, and then some wrestlers interrupted to get in their face and got put in a match for later?
