For anyone that has been living under a rock for the last month or so this weeks episode of Monday Night Raw was the 25th anniversary edition of the broadcast. Of course if you know anything about the WWE they always try to pull out all the stops for a major show to make them feel special and they did exactly that on this occasion. However, I think they overdid the idea of expanding to both arenas tonight as they really didn't do enough at the Manhattan Center. I'm also not just saying that because their were fans on social media that mentioned that fans were chanting how they wanted a refund
This should really give an indication on how "well" the company booked the event including a solid go home show for the Royal Rumble. But, think about how you would feel if you had paid to go to Raw and not seen anything off a big screen for a little over an hour at first. There is no doubt that the lackluster use of the Manhattan Center is a major criticism of the major event. Other than that though I really did enjoy the show especially since this was the first episode of Raw that I've seen in a long time. I've never actually taken this much of a break from the show as mostly out of habit I really would always watch the event.
From all the legends, to seeing more build up to the Royal Rumble, to looking back at a whole lot of nostalgia this was a show for the history books and will be remembered as a lackluster show. But I do think that this could've been a lot bigger had the WWE started to build a feud up to WrestleMania using this large scale. Though I do feel like this is a missed opportunity for all I know this actually could've happened as John Cena did get attacked by a certain musician last night.
