After a few months being away from WWE’s main roster, we got back to a full episode of Monday Night RAW on May 29, 2017 in preparation for this Sunday’s WWE Extreme Rules pay per view from Baltimore.
I must say it was a mixed bag. While the angles with Corey Graves proved intriguing, the This Is Your Life Bayley segment with Alexa Bliss was one of the worst pieces of television I have seen in years.
The main event matches with Finn Balor vs Samoa Joe vs Bray Wyatt, as well as Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns, proved to be decent matches but the overall tone of the show is still off.
WWE RAW is still a show that is way too long, has too much silliness to it, too much bad acting and bad comedy, and tries too hard to be all things to all people (especially the mythical “casual fans”).
This is our review, reaction, and commentary on pro wrestling’s flag ship show, WWE RAW from 5/29/17.
