QD – Personally I thought the episode of Raw was one of the best in a very long time, hitting on some of my all-time WWE pet peeves. There was serious grit in the fight between Charlotte and Sarah, also in how Becky sold and handled the green mist from Asuka. A great comedic segment that showed us that Lesnar does have some personality in one of the best comedic segments in years, and that’s after all the great segments R-Truth has given us since becoming the 24/7 48/7 7-11 European TV Champion! One of the best most unexpected swerves in a long time in Buddy Murphy. Then the growth of a solid faction with Murphy joining Rollins and AOP. Also, Big Show didn’t turn heel! This is the first time in a long time I’ve been bummed that I’m not the person writing about Raw, and that’s saying something!
