The May 26 episode of Raw is in the books, and if your idea of a strong "go-home" episode of the show is subpar wrestling, terrible comedy angles and lazy, mediocre booking, you likely loved Monday's broadcast.
For everyone else, it served as a major blunder on the road to Payback.
The three main stories (Cena-Wyatt, Shield-Evolution and the Bryan saga) were the highlights of an otherwise poor episode of World Wrestling Entertainment's flagship show.
The United States Championship match between Sheamus and Cesaro at Sunday's event was strongly hyped in two separate segments, while the build to Rob Van Dam vs. Bad News Barrett finished up on a solid note.
Bo Dallas' debut on Raw was fine, and the crowd responded to him in a way they did not for Adam Rose, which signifies that the Dallas character may have a better chance at succeeding at the next level than his fellow NXT alumnus.
Otherwise, the show produced some truly awful segments, including the Adam Rose vs. Davy Crockett and El Torito vs. 3MB debacles.
With the crew returning from an exhausting European tour, it is understandable that the show would be lacking in certain areas, most notably between the ropes. That it failed on nearly every level, most notably in giving fans any reason to care about Sunday's undercard, is an indictment on the creative team.
