Monday night RAW review May 2, 22


Welcome to a new segment called the 5 finger review with Dean Mosman. I will review each segment out of 5 ๐Ÿ–•and then the whole show overall.


The show started with a Bloodline segment. There wasnโ€™t much to it really it broke down into a brawl between RKBro and McIntyre vs the bloodline. Because I guess they want to push the unification match for Money in the bank or maybe even summerslam. It was a fun segment Iโ€™m just not very excited for the match it feels more like a smackdown main event than a pay per view match.

Next was a segment with the street profits and Elias being interrupted by alpha academy and Owens. I have really liked the Elias storyline and Iโ€™m all for anything with Chad gable and Kevin Owens. The segment set up a 6 man tag that the heels won with a surprise roll up. The match was fun. Elias got a lot of offense but Iโ€™m not a fan of him taking the pin but it didnโ€™t bother me enough to ruin the match.

The main event was then set up in a backstage segment with Deville and Pearce. He put her in a 6 woman tag against Liv Morgan, Asuka, and Bianca Belair with Becky Lynch and Rhea Ripley on her team. I like that they are starting to move Sonya away from the authority figure stuff because I think she compliments the raw womens division well. This segment got me excited for the main event.

Then Veer had his weekly squash and I am all for this. I actually like veer and think he is getting better and better in the ring. The jobber cut a fun promo hyping Greensboro where they were this week and promoted the BBQ joint he works at which I respect the hustle. My only critique is that I donโ€™t like that itโ€™s called the cervical clutch the name makes me uncomfortable .


๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ


Next edge cut a promo before Damien priest had a match with Aj styles. I liked the promo it was funny but felt more like Rated R superstar than the new gimmick he has. Iโ€™m not complaining because I liked it. tmaybe Iโ€™m just being weird. The cool thing about the match was if AJ won Damien would be banned from ringside. The match was good for a tv match but exactly what I expected. Aj got the roll up win and was immediately attacked by edge. Finn balor made the save and I really, really like this. This sets up a possibility for two things . either wwe bullet club vs judgement day which is bad ass or Finn balor turns on aj and joins judgment day which I personally like more. Either way Iโ€™m excited for this rematch now.

Next Was a backstage promo with MVP and Cedric Alexander. Basically Cedric wants to team up again with mvp and mvp ainโ€™t with it. Cedric wants to prove himself so he makes a match against Lashley for tonight. I thought the segment was fine and did itโ€™s job.


๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•


Miz tv was next and I always love miz tv so I was excited. He had Ali on which I enjoyed and they had a little back and forth that it definently worth watching and miz called out theory after more verbal barbs theory announced a handi cap match. Ali vs theory and miz. Obviously Theoey and miz won and that was basically it. Wait no actually ciampa attacked Ali again and I love ciampa so the segment gets another middle finger for including ciampa like he was in nxt.


๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ



Up next some 24/7 title bullshit I usually would take a piss during this segment but everything other than tamina was fine. Like when you have a 3 hour show you have to expect some filler bullshit and thatโ€™s what this was. Nikki cross won the 24/7 title then immediately defended it against Brooke. The match was dumb and I think Dana won then Reggie tried to roll her up and Dana asked for a divorce which for some reason got a laugh out of me.


๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ




Then was a Becky lynch promo which is always great. I think thatโ€™s enough said. You need to watch

๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ


Up next Was Rollins appreciation night. I love the messiah/ drip god character Rollins has had iโ€™m always entertained and his suit was amazing this week. It just looks like a lot of fun. He was interrupted by Cody Rhodes and they are Both great promos. Seth went to hit Cody but Cody avoided it and hit the Cody cutter.

๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ


Lashley vs Cedric was next and it was as exactly what u expected. Mvp came out almost immediately and just ran down Alexander. He deserves so much better than what he has gotten in wwe it makes me sad to say but I think he will be apart of the next round of releases.


๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ0


Next was a backstage segment with Nikki Cross being sad and Doudrop teased them being a tag team. If Nikki drops the superhero gimmick and teams with PIPER NEVIN I am all for this.

๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ


Next was my favorite segment. Reggie and R-Truth was talking backstage about getting a. Divorce and I nearly paused myself this entire segment. If itโ€™s up on YouTube pleas watch it . Iโ€™m really happy I saw this.

๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ


Lastly was the main event and what a main it was. Liv, Asuka, Bianca vs. Becky Rhea and Sonya.

This match was just really fun and had a great ending. Liv Morgan rolled up Sonya for the win and I thought liv was definently the right person to win here. This was a great note to end raw on.
