Sharing my thoughts, opinion, and historical facts on everything WWE both past and present

Looking at this week's episode of Raw it was a solid show, but I still did have a few issues as somethings on the show were a little confusing as to the reason that they were even on the show. Now looking at last weekend it really proved how unimportant the show was based on the lack of continued storylines. I'm unsure about the announced match between DX and Brothers of Destruction based on the article that I posted last week. Even with that being an issue for me this week too I will be ignoring it to avoid sounding like a broken record and talking about the same thing back to back weeks.
The main problem I had with this episode of Raw is the repetition of booking from show to show with the same matches being shown most weeks. Specifically we have seen the Ascension and Gable/Roode compete against each other for the last month or so and it is really getting old. Sometimes it really feels like the WWE forgets that there are other ways to keep feuds going from week to week other than having them in matches. Now I know that a feud between the Ascension and Roode/Gable may not be something that a lot of people want to see but in reality how does the company actually know that, because it would be something very fresh.
Overall comparing Lynch vs Charlotte as a fresh feud for the women's division I do believe that seeing this tag team feud could be a very fresh feud for the Raw tag team division. But I am not going to pin all the blame on this tag team match as the Finn Balor/Bayley vs Jinder Mahal/Alicia Fox "feud" continuing, but being extremely one sided. I do love the Bayley & Finn Balor partnership and feel like Fox & Mahal could fit together, but both need establishing otherwise it will be just seen as a thrown together team that doesn't have a reason to be together. I will point out that WWE is once again guilty of 50/50 booking, but then again that is something that every traditional WWE fan should know that they are guilty of at this point. I understand the "feud" has come together because of the mixed match challenge, but they really need to add some more depth to both the partnerships and make it less one side to allow for some more investment.
