WWE is like clockwork at this point. After Summerslam the product gets progressively worse, then it gets progressively better after the Rumble through Mania. With that said, yeah, Raw was pretty good last night.

Has anybody been watching 205 Live as of late? I used to watch it but heard it's gotten better as of late since Vince handed control of it over to HHH. Whereas Vince wanted to focus on the characters, HHH is focusing more on the matches and in-ring, similar to NXT. I just haven't brought myself to watch it again.

Rumor has it that beginning with Backlash all PPV's going forward will be dual branded (no more Raw or Smackdown only PPV's). The reasons given were repetitive matchups to fill the card and so-so ticket sales.

So who does everyone have tonight? Here are my predictions for tonight's Elimination Chamber:

-Roman Reigns (unfortunately) to win the men's EC
-Alexa Bliss to retain her title in the women's EC
-Asuka over Nia Jax
-Matt Hardy over Bray Wyatt
-The Bar over Apollo and Titus O'Neal

Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different response. When Vince has to tell Strowman "If the crowd start booing after Roman pins you just powerslam him a few times"

Rinse and repeat.

so, seems Romans about to be drug (pun intended) through the mud again regarding being on the juice. can't see WWE putting the title on him at Mania then risking another suspension with all this coming to light. then again, I couldn't see half the decisions that are made so what the drymount do I know :D

I somehow see Braun being added to the match and winning title (similar to how Rollins cashed in, so Brock doesn't take the pin).

If only we were so lucky. Look, I have nothing personal against Roman Reigns and I hear he's great with the fans, which is a big plus in my book. But I just don't like his character or seeing him having gold. I still haven't bought into his character as a wrestling fan and continuing to cram him down our throats is not the way to go about it.

On an unrelated note, Ronda Rousey sure seemed nervous last night. I still give her a pass. I'm still looking forward to her in a WWE ring!

I think she'll wear shoes. Rusev used to not but he does now. I just hope the match is good. I'm not going to lie, I'm not a big fan of Kurt Angle being her tag team partner.

Kurt is like an action figure, can’t move his neck.
