So we have INTER-GENDER ACTION on tap, which is so X-TR3ME that it feels like WWE Extreme Rules, live this Sunday at 7:00 ET exclusively on the WWE Network has come early! Notes and thoughts from "Cowboy" Bob as he watches...
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.
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?!
In a weird way, it's kind of a testament to New Day that they've gone all the way from "UGH these jobbers" to "Hey, these guys are pretty good!" to "Wow, New Day are the hottest heels in WWE!" to "Is New Day the greatest tag team of all-time?" to "Wow, New Day literally was given the longest reign in WWE history. They are truly the best." to "Okay, this is getting a little stale" to "UGH it's fucking NEW DAY." It's come full circle. Pretty impressive really.
Seth and Becky look like they are playing a couple instead of actually being a couple. Weird, awkward lack of chemistry.

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.
Hysterical line from Elias about Anthony Davis which is so insanely over the top. Terrible heel who is hilarious. His face turn failed. It shouldn't have. All he had to do was keep the same gimmick, except put him against heels now. WWE for some reason changes your whole act when the crowd cheers you so hard you got turned face to begin with. Very dumb.
H8ers gonna h8. Shane-O-Mac is 2nd best heel in this company. HEELS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BOOED. You're getting worked.
