High Spots: AJ Styles tapping into his “old man trying to look cool by using modern-day slang” self might have been the best part of last week’s Raw. Listening to him use the term “cap,” then going on to explain it like he’s some undercover cop breaking down Urban Dictionary terms to his fellow officers was hilarious. The Viking Raiders made a shocking comeback and ended up winning a tag team battle royale in the process. The match they did it in was kind of a bore, but the ending was certainly a sight for sore eyes. So the WWE Championship match between Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre will be a Last Chance Hell in a Cell Match. Good! Let’s bring this feud that seemingly won’t end to a definitive close and do it with a bang, I say.
Ricochet and Humberto Carillo delivered a high-spot-filled sprint. Next time, let’s give ‘em 10 minutes instead of a measly five. MVP dropped that “shuckin’ and jivin’” line he loved to use so much during his time in Impact Wrestling again and this time it was directed at Kofi Kingson. The man was speakin’ facts though, so maybe there’s a future where Kofi takes MVP’s words into consideration and becomes a serious threat. Nice of WWE to remember Jeff Hardy is still on their roster and worthy of being booked being on the main show. He and Cedric Alexander put on a decent (yet entirely too short) matchup. And Matt Riddle vs. Kofi Kingston was a delight (no surprise there, really).
