We’ve started to get the sense that WWE literally decided a few months ago that in the face of a truly ridiculous number of injuries, they were going to put their heads down, scrape together a WrestleMania card with what they had left, and try to fix everything immediately afterwards. It makes sense when you think about it, the Raw after WrestleMania is when you can get away with all sorts of reset buttons, and people already expect new Superstars to debut, so it’s a perfect opportunity to take a breath and start over. A week later, WWE looks like they’re actually going to continue with the direction they started, and the result was another crazy show that somehow worked and was entertaining as all get out. We know nobody reads actual newspapers anymore (kids, newspapers are like a physical copy of the Internet. Ask your parents), but if they did, last night’s Raw would have warranted more than a few front page headlines.
10. Shane McMahon Wins Internet Poll, Gets To Run Raw Again!
Honestly, we’re not sure why Shane didn’t use this strategy before, because it seems a lot easier than fighting The Undertaker inside Hell in a Cell. That’s right, WWE literally said that Shane was getting another week in charge of Raw because a social media poll said he did a really good job, and far be it from Vince McMahon to argue with the Internet. Obviously, none of this makes any sense and feels like WWE actually wants to put Shane in charge, but didn’t want The Undertaker to lose at WrestleMania because reasons, so now they’re stuck making excuses to try and plausibly keep him around (apparently there might be another poll). We can’t wait to find out what they come up with next week. And frankly, if Shane’s two-week reign is any indication, we really want him to stay in charge, because all he did all night was make logical decisions and shake hands with various Superstars. How did it take this long for someone to realize that if Kevin Owens is making threats to interfere in a match later, you surround him with security to make sure he leaves the building? We also have to give credit to Shane for clearly attending the Teddy Long School of Conflict Resolution, because when four people with opposing agendas are arguing in the ring, the solution should always be a tag team main event, playa!
