I watched this entire Raw and for the life of me I couldn't remember anything from it other than RKBRO. Watching this ups and downs was a painful reminder of what went down lol

I think I may start watching AEW instead of RAW and just get the recaps here. No need to suffer if I don’t have to

Remember the time when WWE insisted that Daniel Bryan wasn't actually popular, and that the fans were just doing the Yes Chant because they liked the chant, so they put the Big Show in the crowd to lead it thinking that they could shift all of the Bryan popularity to Show. Remember how it didn't work, and how stupid it was to even try, because when you have a performer who is insanely popular, why not just use THEM instead of trying to move their popularity to someone else. Does anyone else feel like the whole goal of making Bray disappear and making Alexa Bliss into the Fiend is some backstage Vince thing of "Bray Wyatt isn't really popular. People just like Evil Clowns. Make Alexa Bliss into an Evil Clown. That'll work better than Bray; nobody really likes Bray."

Starting a story and ending a story, with nothing happening or payoff is the exact way to describe WWE story telling.

I Agree Simon. I actually didn't even watch RAW, just watched Ups and Downs coz as you said, it's pretty much the same thing...How can Smackdown be so good and RAW so "Un-Watchable"????

I'm guessing the WWE is attempting to bomb ratings for a show on USA in hopes of getting dropped in favor of Raw moving to NBC perhaps? 🤔

I officially turned off Raw during The Miz, John Morrison, Elias and Ryker segment when they began to sing. I will not watch Raw until Simon gives the previous episode an “Up”

I skipped raw. From what I read, braun set a record. So now I'm watching this. Braun seems to switch sides. Big show 2.0.

The only thing fun and exciting about why was RKbro and it seems like the fans like it. So that means WWE is going to break them up and have Randy RKO riddle in a few weeks because reasons..

I think Simon should take a break from raw. I think you are forming a bias perception on the broadcast. RAW is trying to do a soft reset and trying new pairings to see what will work. I can see you are not giving it chances. There are lots of dumb stuff that happens on smackdown, but u seem to be willing to give it chances and watch. U consistently gives aew ups, it's not because they are that good (most of the time i find myself nodding off), it's because you are willing to give chances. You are an entertaining guys simon and i enjoy watching your content, but i think you are bias at this moment. Let someone else do raw ups&down for a month. Take a break.

I really think having a pay-per-view call (Wrestlemania) Backlash is hinder the storyline. WWE wants to have similar matches and storyline for backlash to make it seems like this is now the final show of the season and you have to tune in to Backlash to see what happen. Wrestlemania is now the event before the season finale.

Raw is nothing but wrestling filler episodes at this point. It's like watching paint dry.

We get the same old shit with smackdown too lets not forget! The alpha academy v the mysterios... there's the natalya/tamina v shayna/nia thing...sami zayn interferring in the I.C title picture every week 😒 seth and cesaro's feud will go on forever too, like that stupid eye for an eye thing last year! Both shows suck, but at least smackdown has Roman Reigns. Him and Heyman is literally saving the company at the moment.

WWE should start teasing a feud between Sonya Deville and Adam Pierce and get them to separate their roles. Get Sonya on Smack Down and Adam on Raw. This will bring back the air of Survivor Series and make the future draft seem important for fans that choose sides.

Your bar for an up is depressingly low, to the point of ‘there’s a small chance this could go somewhere’ warranting an up. And still Raw comes out awfully...

Riddle & Orton was easily the best thing on raw. Had the 3 best lines all in the same 5 minute segment. "He is the apex predator, which I still don't totally understand" "He is the viper and I squashed him like a sexy mongoose" "I don''t know what planet you are from", "I'm from earth", "Shut Up". All absolute gold. Give them the belts!!!!!

The worst part about RAW being the same show week after week is that there's no longer any point in watching Ups & Downs. There's only so much Simon can do to make an exciting episode. And, hes the best thing on What Culture.

I said it before and i will say it again, Raw is purposefully badly written to show better ratings for Smackdown so that they can credit Roman Reigns for it. being Rock's cousin pays off huge.

News is, WWE creativity is giving back creative control of the Fiend to Bray, under the condition he kills the Fiend bc WWE can’t advance future prospects, in a result of having an unbeatable entity. I hope he does. I hope he “saves” Alexa Bliss. I would like to see a situation where Bray Wyatt does a cinematic match with Alexa Bliss....where the build up is Bray trying to explain that the Fiend is sucking life from Alexa. Where it’s Bray, fighting Lilly (a reincarnation of the Fiend) and sacrificing himself to be the one that the Fiend tortures, and leaves Alexa alone. Then create the Fiend character as a “Mankind” influential mentality that Bray could start to fight against himself weekly. You could essentially kill the Fiend, but give Bray and Alexa an out. Give them time to create new personas, and continue their creativity. Without the Fiend persona overshadowing them.
