Here's what we're missing during the breaks. The 1:20 mark is the highlight.
I was coming in here to post this lol the disinterested older lady when they start showing the crowd is great too.
But on a serious note, I've been an avid supporter of Dana for the last three years. Not only is she my wrestling crush, she's a WARRIOR who has improved by leaps and bounds since her debut. I look forward to her finally being given a chance on television to prove herself. Everything I said last night about Alexa applies to Dana. She's been through so much in her life and she deserves to have all the success she's capable of achieving. WWE, give her a chance.
A really good Raw. Though there were a lot of re-starts, the matches were good, with Ricochet VS Styles being the match of the night. I loved the 24/7 Title chaos. The build for Extreme Rules was interesting, especially with that surprise. The only thing I didn't like was the Tug of War. That should not be part of a wrestling show.

Oh my God, this show is gonna look like such a hatchet job in my points spreadsheets with all the double matches and 24/7 stuff...
I didn't count Styles VS Ricochet as ending and then re-starting as a new match. I counted it as 1 match. I did the same last week with Rollins VS Bryan. I hate WWE's new edict of not having matches continue past a segment.
