So, they've moved NXT to USA, SmackDown to FOX and Lana to BBC. 

Yeah, I don’t get why you want to watch both?

Those two buggers are stealing a living. If there has ever been two people more fortunate for who they had aligned themselves with elsewhere, then i'd like to see them. They should each be giving AJ a finder's fee of that $700k a year downside they are getting for making them seem half relevant. 

Apparently these lads were good in Japan as well, kind of like Albert and Kenny Omega. I have my doubts.

I enjoyed Gallows on the US indie scene as the wild giant brawler. The OC couldn't be more lame. Even if their booking hadn't sucked, they're so lame and boring they're hurting Styles by association.

Seth Rollins on the other hand looks a thousand times better with two heavies at his sides. Great prick move having him beat down Rey with his own weapon. They might salvage Seth yet, some good stuff the last couple of weeks. 

With the out of nowhere appearance of Deonna Purrazzo you'd hope they've finally realised how thin the division is. I love Becky Lynch. Just when she's looking stale and dead she'll do a cool little promo to reframe things and get me invested again. Now she needs a to deliver a good PPV match. And keep it simple this time please, straight one on one. No Charlotte, no gimmicks and no bullshit.

Brilliant babyface showing by Randy Orton in the main event. One of the rare times him doing the bare minimum didn't bore my tits off and actually added to the match.

What a crazy decision to do that Samoa Joe angle on a taped Christmas show that no-one is watching.

Great moment though. Feels like all is right in the world now Seth Rollins is a slimy heel and Samoa Joe is a badass babyface stepping up to him.

Did anyone else notice the really obvious crowd sweetening?  How long has Raw been doing that?

The Joe angle was great.  Everything else you can skip.

I think they only sweetened the crowd this week because it was recorded last Monday, after the fans had already sat through last week's three hour show. Frankly, I'm surprised anyone was still in the building by the time Joe stood up like a boss.

It probably won't last but it's nice to be going into the new year with three proper top babyfaces in Rey Mysterio, Samoa Joe and Kevin Owens. Hopefully we get a couple of blistering 6-man tags in the upcoming weeks.

I just find that completely frustrating. They've had the opportunity to go with Owens and Joe long in the past when it would have meant far more and haven't. They're a fucking pain in the arse for that. They've always got to hang on to the coat tails of the same guys too long while they burn through all the fresh and promising ones. Then every fucker gets a run anyway at some point but always when they're no longer worth the snot off the end of your nose.

Yes agreed, they are not both perfectly cast.
Joe banging the back of his head on the edge of the table made me wince though.

I didn't bother to avoid the spoilers last week, thinking there wouldn't be a chance in hell of anything happening worth watching, on a taped Raw, airing the day before Christmas Eve. Kind of disappointed I didn't see the Joe turn unspoilt now.

I went on to see the YouTube clips this morning before work but they weren't up on The Observer site at that point. I'm sure I'll catch up with it at some point during the week, but I think there are more pressing concerns going on tomorrow, than watching Raw. One of which is trying to calculate if I can get drunk between the gap from getting home from work at 1.50 and the dinner hitting the table before the queen's speech, yet still being sober enough to not need someone else to cut my food up for me. 🤔
