Welcome to a new segment called the 5 finger review with Dean Mosman. I will review each segment out of 5 🖕and then the whole show overall.
The show started with a Bloodline segment. There wasn’t much to it really it broke down into a brawl between RKBro and McIntyre vs the bloodline. Because I guess they want to push the unification match for Money in the bank or maybe even summerslam. It was a fun segment I’m just not very excited for the match it feels more like a smackdown main event than a pay per view match.
Next was a segment with the street profits and Elias being interrupted by alpha academy and Owens. I have really liked the Elias storyline and I’m all for anything with Chad gable and Kevin Owens. The segment set up a 6 man tag that the heels won with a surprise roll up. The match was fun. Elias got a lot of offense but I’m not a fan of him taking the pin but it didn’t bother me enough to ruin the match.
The main event was then set up in a backstage segment with Deville and Pearce. He put her in a 6 woman tag against Liv Morgan, Asuka, and Bianca Belair with Becky Lynch and Rhea Ripley on her team. I like that they are starting to move Sonya away from the authority figure stuff because I think she compliments the raw womens division well. This segment got me excited for the main event.
Then Veer had his weekly squash and I am all for this. I actually like veer and think he is getting better and better in the ring. The jobber cut a fun promo hyping Greensboro where they were this week and promoted the BBQ joint he works at which I respect the hustle. My only critique is that I don’t like that it’s called the cervical clutch the name makes me uncomfortable .
Next edge cut a promo before Damien priest had a match with Aj styles. I liked the promo it was funny but felt more like Rated R superstar than the new gimmick he has. I’m not complaining because I liked it. tmaybe I’m just being weird. The cool thing about the match was if AJ won Damien would be banned from ringside. The match was good for a tv match but exactly what I expected. Aj got the roll up win and was immediately attacked by edge. Finn balor made the save and I really, really like this. This sets up a possibility for two things . either wwe bullet club vs judgement day which is bad ass or Finn balor turns on aj and joins judgment day which I personally like more. Either way I’m excited for this rematch now.
Next Was a backstage promo with MVP and Cedric Alexander. Basically Cedric wants to team up again with mvp and mvp ain’t with it. Cedric wants to prove himself so he makes a match against Lashley for tonight. I thought the segment was fine and did it’s job.
Miz tv was next and I always love miz tv so I was excited. He had Ali on which I enjoyed and they had a little back and forth that it definently worth watching and miz called out theory after more verbal barbs theory announced a handi cap match. Ali vs theory and miz. Obviously Theoey and miz won and that was basically it. Wait no actually ciampa attacked Ali again and I love ciampa so the segment gets another middle finger for including ciampa like he was in nxt.
Up next some 24/7 title bullshit I usually would take a piss during this segment but everything other than tamina was fine. Like when you have a 3 hour show you have to expect some filler bullshit and that’s what this was. Nikki cross won the 24/7 title then immediately defended it against Brooke. The match was dumb and I think Dana won then Reggie tried to roll her up and Dana asked for a divorce which for some reason got a laugh out of me.
Then was a Becky lynch promo which is always great. I think that’s enough said. You need to watch
Up next Was Rollins appreciation night. I love the messiah/ drip god character Rollins has had i’m always entertained and his suit was amazing this week. It just looks like a lot of fun. He was interrupted by Cody Rhodes and they are Both great promos. Seth went to hit Cody but Cody avoided it and hit the Cody cutter.
Lashley vs Cedric was next and it was as exactly what u expected. Mvp came out almost immediately and just ran down Alexander. He deserves so much better than what he has gotten in wwe it makes me sad to say but I think he will be apart of the next round of releases.
Next was a backstage segment with Nikki Cross being sad and Doudrop teased them being a tag team. If Nikki drops the superhero gimmick and teams with PIPER NEVIN I am all for this.
Next was my favorite segment. Reggie and R-Truth was talking backstage about getting a. Divorce and I nearly paused myself this entire segment. If it’s up on YouTube pleas watch it . I’m really happy I saw this.
Lastly was the main event and what a main it was. Liv, Asuka, Bianca vs. Becky Rhea and Sonya.
This match was just really fun and had a great ending. Liv Morgan rolled up Sonya for the win and I thought liv was definently the right person to win here. This was a great note to end raw on.
RAW this week gets 🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽Out of 5
