Don’t let appearances by Vince McMahon and The Undertaker fool you. This week’s RAW was lacking in nearly every way- away from some quality mic work and another admirable in-ring performance from Dean Ambrose. Check out this week’s RAW Power Rankings to see who else made the best of a weak episode of RAW.
Honorable Mention: The Miz: His win over Dolph Ziggler this week on RAW was far from sexy, but it does make him relevant, for the first time, in a long time.
5: Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks: This too have developed a solid rivalry and despite the fact that the finish was robbed straight out of NXT, this is a feud that simply must continue. A testament to the depth of the Diva’s Division, both Lynch and Banks would make good opponents for Charlotte Flair at Wrestlemania 32. Can you say Triple Threat?
4: Ryback: His win over Adam Rose this week was anything but a five-star encounter, but lets face it, Ryback was booked perfectly here. Get pissed, hit the Shell-Shocked, leave. That’s what he was doing three years ago when he was at his peak and that’s exactly what he needs to do in order to get back there.
3: The Big Show: A win over Kevin Owens this week on RAW definitely adds some spice to the Intercontinental Title scene, but does anyone really want to see Show and Owens at Wrestlemania?
2: Y2AJ: Chris Jericho has found the fountain of youth and AJ Styles has a platform to show the world just how insanely talented he is. The only way this goes wrong is if it doesn’t end in an epic match between the two, with a WWE Tag Team title reign somewhere in the middle.
1: Dean Ambrose: His promo at the start of the show was some of his best and his work against Alberto Del Rio proves again that he deserves a shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
