After the chaotic mess that was last week’s Raw, this week’s episode had a lot of problems to deal with, and not a lot of time to do it, with WrestleMania only a few weeks away and a heavily hyped Network Special coming up within a few days. And thanks to a hot Chicago crowd and a few well-timed good decisions, including a long-awaited return, WWE actually managed to pull off a pretty good show. As decent as it was, though, we occasionally found ourselves loudly asking questions about what we were watching. And if we have questions, it’s likely that you did as well, so we’ve written down all the queries we shouted at our TV during Raw, and done our best to work out some answers.
10. What’s A Photograph?
Actually, we know the answer to that one, we were just assuming the role of the majority of WWE’s younger fan base. As symbolic as Vince’s destruction of a family photo was, we’re pretty sure there was at least one person in the audience asking “What’s the big deal? He’s probably got it backed up on the Cloud, right?” But in all seriousness, it was good of WWE to create a highlight package of Shane’s wrestling career for fans who are too young to remember the Attitude Era, which we should remind you took place nearly two decades ago at this point, because we didn’t want to be the only ones who felt old. The only problem is that it aired later in the show, when fans already had the image of Shane McMahon throwing the worst punches in recorded history to take out four security guards. There’s a reason why many wrestlers throw forearms instead of punches, and it’s because fake punches are actually hard to do. Someone should probably let Shane know that before they force The Undertaker to sell for his flurry of childlike fists at WrestleMania.
