Nothing happened on Raw. Really. Nothing happened. Except for the AJ Styles thing, really. Other than that? Totally skippable. I mean, there was some good stuff, but you’ve got better things to do with your time, right?

On a related note, there’s a ton of great indie / foreign wrestling action out there, and it’s super accessible. Take some time to branch out a bit!

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!
