A few things that have been more or less expected:

--Mick Foley fired. Results in Sami Zayn speaking up for him and getting squashed by Samoa Joe as a result. Dunno if they have a match at WM yet, but might be leading that way.

--Nia Jax beats Bayley to be added to the now-four-way at WM

--Undertaker interrupts the Roman Reigns-Braun Strowman match for pretty much no reason (really -- he got the better of Roman last time; what's his motivation for this interference?) and gave Strowman a chokeslam before getting speared by Reigns. Seems to be leading toward making this match a three-way at WM

--Seth's PT guy says he needs "months" of rehab, leading to HHH proposing a match where Seth signs papers absolving WWE of any injury blame.

Good plot points all, IMHO, on the road to WM. I also really enjoyed Y2J's promo on "the real Kevin Owens," including the photo of a teenaged Owens in Y2J shirt and screenshot of DM tweets Owens sent Jericho when he was first signed. Powerful message and delivered well by Jericho. And he once again shows how he's the master of the crowd reaction by simply subtly tweaking his language to get face pops. He should be teaching a class. Put him at NXT whenever he retires.

Raw Heel-A-Mania continues. Once again no computance for Steph or HHH. I hate the idea of HHH getting another stable to get himself over. The show dragged on with nothing for the fans to cheer for except maybe in Vince's mind Taker eating a Roma Reigns' spear. Finn wrestled this weekend, so maybe we get that sooner than later.

What SHOULD have happened is Zayn saying to Steph: "I've got two words for YOU: I QUIT~!" Hello, Smackdown.

Instead: wash, rinse, repeat.

Really, if you're allowed to just quit and go to Smackdown, there should be nobody on Raw's roster at this point. Even Kevin Owens, who is supposed to be aligned with Hunter, didn't get any help in his match against Goldberg. Why would anybody choose to work for Hunter or Stephanie?

Here is something I did to make the Triple H interview more personally enjoyable: I pretended that Triple H walking out of the ring after saying he was "done with Rollins" was the scripted end of the interview. Then, everything that happened afterwards was a shoot when H realized he had no Mania match. Made me laugh.

That Highlight Reel, however, could not have possibly been more enjoyable. That thing was absolutely perfect and is not getting enough love.

If we had to do a total of 'How many times have Hunter and Steph been heel and face' so far this year, what do you think the totals would be? Even a nightly total would probably be very high and even.

Jericho could be the person that people wanting to get as far as they can need to watch. Little things make such a difference and work so well. KO continues to impress as well. They could well steal the show at WM.

No 'Berg or Lesnar? Shows how much faith they have in Bill. Can't do the same Heyman interview with no comeback. How are they going to deal with post Mania? Assuming Brock wins then Bill is going to want a rematch, Owens is owed a rematch, Balor will be back and needing a rematch and Roman will also be saying he needs a shot presuming he wins.

Foley was probably the best he has been for a good while and a good way to leave. Hopefully he looks after himself and gets his injuries and discomforts sorted. No GM until Mania and then Kurt the night after....?

If Angle shows up, it'll probably set up another HHH/Steph vs GM story. I actually enjoyed the first half of the Steph/Foley reign when they were sort of on the same page and not all over the place. But now? Blaaah.

I don't think Lesnar or Goldberg not being there has anything to do with their faith in either of them.
I think it's more the WWE thinking that the fact that the match exists is enough for the universe. They'll probably have one final stare down next week but no actual fight.

I don't mind the Multi-person matches if it helps elevate the match. Having Nia in the women's title match doesn't do that for me. I fear it'll become more of a "Nia dominates until someone tricks her" match as a result.
But if they add Strowman to the Reigns/Taker match I'm all for it. It'll help hide Undertaker's age weaknesses, he can just do some cool spots and so can Roman & Braun.

That's actually one thing I usually enjoy about the shows just prior to WM, how everything suddenly falls into place. Sometimes it's late minute because of sloppy booking, but sometimes it actually helps it feel natural.
Like..if you're not the main event, then everyone should still jockey for position and try to get in.
THus Nia going on a rampage makes sense. Enzo/Cass and Cesaro/Sheamus fighting to get that spot makes sense.
There's nothing wrong with setting things up that way.

I'm at the point where I actively skip the promo segments and prefer to work on Monday and Tuesday nights so I can skip the extracurriculars. Plenty of other wrestling to watch and Raw/SD(and Impact) go SO much faster.
