There is a lot of pressure on the shoulders of the WWE creative team for the final Raw before WrestleMania. They have to explain and get over multiple angles on a single night, fully expecting viewers who may not watch religiously to tune in and see what the show is all about this year.
Ashes. Human ashes. Remains.
They belong to Paul Bearer, Undertaker's longtime manager who passed away earlier this year. And CM Punk not only stole them from Undertaker, he actually dumped them out, all over a prone Taker and himself.
Say this for the WWE—it was inventive.
It also stole the spotlight away from the main event, The Rock versus John Cena for the WWE Championship. The two are among the biggest stars in WWE history, but on this night at least, no one will leave the arena talking about anyone other than CM Punk and Undertaker.
What about the rest of the show? I graded every segment from A-F, red pen in hand just like the most disturbed teacher at your high school, to see who passed and who failed. Disagree? Let me hear it in the comments.
