so Braun Strowman matched up against a jobber for a 45 sec first match? Good job Raw, way to change it up for the new era :eh:

when was the last time there was a squash match with a local jobber? he played it off as being genuinely scared. Braun beat his ass down.

establish big bad guy, check.


what would make you happy in the 'new era'?

Yeah, I don't remember the last time we had true jobber squashes. Old school fudge right there.

Loved it, even though Strowman obviously has no ring skills whasoever. That's the only way to build this guy up. As you dudes said, loved the old school feel of tossing a no-name jobber out there. Interviewing him beforehand was a nice touch. Thought Raw and to a lesser degree Smackdown both debuted the new look and feel extremely well.

Hmm I guess I always though sending jobbers out to get pounded was just lazy booking.

You need Strowman to look dominant, but he sucks in the ring. So you don't want him going out there and building his character by squashing established wrestlers. It would make them look truly terrible since he can't do much of anything in the ring. Better to let him run through a bunch of these turds, similar to how they built Ryback up with his extremely limited ring skills. They managed to get him quite over just beating up scrubs every week.

Corey Graves to RAW might of been the best move they made throughout the whole draft process. So glad JBL and Lawler are off the announce team as well. I hope Renee Young gets her chance sometime soon

Sadly better than BS. Honesty, nobody will ever beat King/JR. It's a travesty they don't let them rip it anymore. Then again, wrestling in general won't ever be that good again either.

King always sucked, but obviously JR is legend. Gimme Heenan and even racist Ventura over King any drymounting day of the week. Heenan is far and away the greatest heel announcer of all time.

Before my time I guess. King stinks without JR but they worked great together... The minute they made him cut down on puppies comments is when he became useless, ha.
