I shouldn't start this thread. This show clearly wasn't meant for me:

• Already tired of Lawler on commentary - it took me less than an hour
• Flair going into business for himself was amusing but not as part of leading into what appears will be a solid month of Saudi Arabia show hype
• Rusev is a face, no wait, he's a heel, no wait...
• Lashley returns....with Lana. Rusev is Mike Kanellis, I guess. Is this the big Heyman influence?
• Well, the new set is nice, I guess

I'm sure I'll end up catching the other shows this week but for a while I flirted with a "sober October," only instead of giving up booze I'd give up WWE. I feel like I need the booze to help me get through the WWE at this point.

I was surprised War Raiders went over OC so cleanly. The "305 Live" line during the finishing splash was great.

I do not like the idea of Hogan and Flair coaching teams, but the continuity of Orton being the first to work with Flair was nice, as was Flair talking up Miz, whom he managed and bequeathed the figure four. Yea for memory.

The Rusev push was good until Lana walked out.

No Cole or Graves on RAW. That works for me.

I assume Rey avenges Dominic Friday by making Brock lose to Kofi. That would give us another HITC match.

Good to hear from you, boss.

The new announce team needs to sound more enthusiastic about the season debut of Monday Night Raw complete with pyro. Still better than Mauro.

Brock's been suspended for less than this.

This is what happens when there are no on-air authority figures to run the show!

Anyway, I thought there was some good here (like Brock's attack on Rey & Dominic as well as the Sasha vs. Alexa match) but there was some bad too. Specifically, the whole Lashley-Rusev stuff which was a rough way to end the show on.

Renee's been using that call for about two months.

Really, I find that what I liked most on this episode was actually the sit-down pre-tape that they did with AoP. They've all been pretty effective for rebuilding the team, but I though this one was great because it went for so long that by the time it hit "He who brings forth the violence becomes the violence, He who becomes the violence is an Author of Pain," those lines really hit big for me.

Change is good. The new entrance and new announce team freshened up an otherwise average show and it was needed.

I am digging the AOP relaunch as well and its working. Watching old NXTs and seeing the original Ascension entrances, they could easily do something like that with them - especially with the new set - as well as video packages and bring them right back to importance again. You know, if they cared.

What can save Seth Rollins from apathy? Teaming him with HULK HOGAN. Ugh.

The Brock attack was well done. As Brock attacks usually are.

What a letdown the limo reveal being Lashley and Lana was. Lashley has been just another guy this entire return.

Great cruiserweight matches, pointless segments, boring midcard, and a crappy main event. Didn't I see this formula done somewhere before? Where did the WWA go wrong? - The announce team. Jeremy Borash? This guy sucks.
