They are still treating Lashley/Strowman like it was the Trail of Tears. Kind of makes it a little lamer the more they hype it up like that. But at least they are trying to make it a thing.
I got a notification that Braun Strowman is facing Bobby Lashley, so you just KNOW we are in for ONE. HOT. NIGHT. All kidding aside, I believe this is the first official Raw under the Paul Heyman banner, so let's see if it's the same old bullshit or not.
Supernatural pro wrestling characters have always had a soft-spot with me. The Undertaker, of course. Kane. Papa Shango. Gangrel and The Brood. The Boogeyman. Finn Balor.
It's not real heat, it's X-Pac heat, they say. Shane McMahon is awful. Shane McMahon is boring. How does WWE not see this?!

Months ago, because I'm childless and alone in my mid-30's, I decided to go out all by myself, have a few margaritas and see Fighting With My Family, of course the film about WWE superstar, Paige. Wait, you think this is pathetic and are asking if I have a GoFundMe you can donate to? Not at all.
Steel cage has always been my least favorite stipulation. It's so fucking stupid. The object to climb out of the cage? The whole point is to keep both competitors inside of it. So dumb. And don't even get me started on walking out the door.
