This week Hal Danielle and Lindsey take a look at the season premiere of RAW. With AEW and NXT going live, SURELY the flagship program of the WWE would come out swinging, right?
We’ll discuss how we felt about everything, from the brand new set to storylines, to the surprising lack of wrestling for most of the show.
The good news of course is that if RAW isn’t doing it for you, there are plenty of new wrestling shows to entertain you. And last week NXT showed that it will continue to deliver the goods as it prepares for a two hour broadcast on USA.
Keith Lee, Matt Riddle, Io Shirai, Dakota Kai… there’s almost too many stars in place that look poised to keep the show as WWE’s best, even when it airs at the same time as the fledgling AEW.
The Three Count
Julian put over Vince McMahon directed by David Lynch.
Lindsey put over Jungle Boy’s farewell to indie wrestling.
