One week removed from the most exciting and talked-about Raw of the year, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is gearing up to present a disappointing Raw after the Raw after WrestleMania.
Every year, the Raw immediately following WrestleMania features exciting debuts, the beginning of new feuds, and a rabid fanbase still pumped-up from the previous night’s extravaganza — and then, a week later, fans quickly burn out and lose interest.
The hashtag #RawAfterRawAfterMania has failed to go viral, and most WWE fans, having overdosed on wrestling last month, intend to watch Better Call Saul instead.
It is widely believed that the Raw after the Raw after WrestleMania will be a lot like the Raw before the Raw before the Raw before the Raw before the Raw before WrestleMania.
With Brock Lesnar suspended and a zero percent chance of seeing the Undertaker, fans who do tune-in will likely see a longwinded opening segment featuring The Authority, followed by some preliminary maneuvering to build for the half-baked Extreme Rules pay-per-view.
WWE will now enter an 11-month doldrums period, during which the Big Show will turn heel and babyface several-dozen times for reasons unclear.
