WWE Raw: Best and Worst Segments

WWE RAW

Extreme Rules was an amazing pay-per-view for WWE Raw. With Joe winning the Number One Contendership, and Miz winning the Intercontinental Championship, Raw needed to put together several feuds before Great Balls of Fire.

In this write-up, I will rate each segment in a range between +5 to -5.

  1. Bray Wyatt vs Roman Reigns: +3

Roman and Wyatt, just 24 hours after their brutal Fiveway match at Extreme Rules, started the show off with another hard hitting match. Wyatt hit Roman with the Urinagi, and then clotheslines him. Roman powerbombed Wyatt and hit him with a Superman Punch. Bray hit a clothesline on the outside. Woman hits another Superman punch and the spear to pick up the win.

This Raw was a horrible show. It got a rating of +5 and had nothing good about it. Raw really need to pick up their game with Summerslam and Great Balls of Fire drawing near.
