I will refresh this blog throughout the night.
Full disclosure — I stopped watching Raw probably around the time of Blood Money II, so I couldn’t tell you if this intro was new or not. But the stage and set definitely look new, and I read enough clickbait news sites to know that the pyro is back!
And those are completely new announcers (or in Lawler’s case, old)! I’m very much looking forward to an episode of Raw that doesn’t include Michael Cole or Corey Graves.
I thought they said they were going to start with the Universal Title match, but Rey doesn’t look dressed to compete.
I like that they’re promoting matches to come later tonight. It’s so basic, but they’ve done so little in recent years to acknowledge the power of treating matches like they matter.
Poor Rey — they never e-e-e-ever let Rey Mysterio finish a promo without getting interrupted.
Totally misread Lesnar’s t-shirt as saying “Supper City.” Mmmm.
