WWE Raw Review: WrestleMania Updates, SmackDown Repeats and More

Alfred KonuwaFeatured ColumnistMarch 18, 2014

Hot on the heels of last week's announcement that Daniel Bryan will be in the main event of WrestleMania if he defeats Triple H, Trips dropped that bomb that if he goes over Bryan then it will be him in the main event of WrestleMania, thus adding another layer to The Authority storyline.

For some reason Kane decided to trust The Shield after getting a beatdown from them this past Friday on SmackDown, and we were treated to the exact same results on Monday. It makes you wonder what kind of stock WWE has invested in SmackDown if they reuse the same segments a few days later on Raw.

The Divas division is now wide open for WrestleMania season, providing one of the least predictable stories on the card with all of the Divas being booked as strong contenders. Will this be the revitalization that the Divas division needs, or will this all be quickly forgotten once WrestleMania XXX rolls around in a few weeks?

This week's Raw ended on a note reminiscent of those during the Attitude Era, with Triple H viciously beating down Daniel Bryan as he was helplessly handcuffed in the ring. Stephanie McMahon continued to deliver fantastic heel work as her husband gave every fan in the WWE Universe even more of a reason to salivate for his comeuppance at this year's WrestleMania.
