WWE Raw was an up-and-down show that featured several themes, for better or worse.
Undertaker continued his spooking of Brock Lesnar. With just one week left until WrestleMania, it’s impossible to map out a scenario where Lesnar is booked as a legitimate threat to end Undertaker's undefeated streak at the event.
Not only has Lesnar been poorly booked during his brief feud with Undertaker but he has lost multiple pay-per-view matches since his return. How are fans supposed to believe Brock can beat Undertaker at WrestleMania if he couldn't defeat Triple H just one year earlier?
WrestleMania will figure to be a more crowded spectacle than it was last year. Following Raw, just three of the seven announced matches are singles matches, with a group tag team match expected to be announced as well. With so many WWE Superstars and Divas booked on one card, WWE runs the risk of adversely affecting the quality of its most valuable franchise.
Hulk Hogan’s value to WWE has yet to plateau with yet another strong segment alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger and Joe Manganiello. Miz, on the other hand, hasn’t had much value since WrestleMania XXVII.
