Renee Young, winner of everything.
Renee Young, winner of everything.

The Lesnar / Taker saga has come to an end. Shield vs Wyatt Family is done, as well. Seth Rollins has finished his cartoon rivalry with Kane. It’s time to move on.

And boy, did we ever. This week’s Raw was set up as a 3 hour event to determine a new number one contender. From the four qualifying matches to the main event fatal four way, it delivered a lot of great action and built up to what is ultimately an intriguing rivalry between Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins with the biggest prize in WWE on the line.

Not only that, but it seems that the Brothers of Destruction will be facing The Wyatt Family… but who else will be in their corner?

Sometimes, it just takes a night (or two) of good wrestling to wash away the previous four weeks…

Joshua Schlag

For most of the last 30+ years of my life, I've been watching WWE. As a kid, Monday Night Raw hooked me from the start. From Bret Hart and Razor Ramon, to Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, to CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.. I've witnessed the ups and downs and I'm proud to have enjoyed pro wrestling through the years.

Though I now watch in a much different fashion than I did when I was a kid (finding out Vince McMahon was the owner and Jack Tunney no more than a figurehead was like finding out Santa Claus did not exist), I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for the hard work pro wrestlers do and the things they sacrifice to entertain us.

It's still real to me, dammit!
