This week’s episode of Monday Night Raw was headlined by the women’s gauntlet match to determine who would get the final spot in the Women’s Money In The Bank match. If you thought that the show was lackluster and uninspired, there’s a reason why it came off that way.
Vince McMahon knew that they would be up against a competitive game 7 NBA Western Conference Finals game between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets. They were also up against game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Washington Capitals and the Vegas Golden Knights. That’s the reason why they did the food fight segment in the third hour.
Several of you have asked about Roman Reigns’ absence from the show. Basically, he wanted to spend some time with his family so he requested some time off. He hasn’t been at any live events since last week’s Raw but he is scheduled to be back on the road this weekend. The time off also allows him to heal up some nagging injuries.
The Raw viewership numbers are delayed this week because of the holiday. We should have them on Wednesday.
