It was obvious from the start that Raw would be a headline-making show, but despite WWE’s best efforts, some of its big developments wound up rather flat in the end. Monday night included a big-time return with Braun Strowman arriving in an ambulance and a rare heel turn as Big Cass finally admitted to attacking Enzo Amore.
Still, there were multiple times on Monday when it was obvious that WWE could have booked its big moments better. The opening of Raw was the best segment of the night, and the formation of a new faction provided a bit of a swerve. Perhaps most importantly, the show created a bunch of potentialon July 9, including a co-main event to Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe.
